Bible Verse:


He staggered not at the promise of God through unbelief; but was strong in faith, giving glory to God:

And being fully persuaded that, what he had promised, he was able also to perform

And therefore it was imputed to him for righteousness.

                                                                                      -Romans 4:20-22

Abraham considered not his own body in believing for a son. We must not consider the things in this natural world that appear to contradict the Word of God. We can’t consider our circumstances. If we want to walk in constant victory, we must develop a spirit of faith and persevere when the devil is putting pressure on us. Faith believes God’s Word just because God said it – whether natural circumstances seem to agree or not.


To consider Jesus, we must consider His Word.

The Holy Spirit will paint an accurate picture of Jesus in our heart as we study the Word.

We consider Jesus by acting on Heb 3:1 considering Jesus as the Apostle – the “sent one”. Believe that He is sent to us to give us life continually.

We consider the High Priest of our profession. He continually watches over our words as we keep feeding on the Word day after day and actions of faith to see to it that they come to pass.

We consider Jesus to be faithful and we are to be confident. He will do what He has said.

God is upholding all things by the Word of His power (Heb 1:3). If we want to be upheld, we get over on His Word. It will see us through to victory. It will give us power to consider Jesus and the strength not to consider those things which surround us.

So we keep the power coming – we keep considering Jesus, the Word of God. We may go through tests and trials, but we come out victorious every time.



Bible Verse:


And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose.

                                         - Romans 8:28 

There are times for all of us when our lives seem to have no clear plan or direction. But even then, if we love The Lord Jesus and give ourselves to Him, trusting Him, we can be sure He is working out His great and loving plan for us. We can rejoice over that plan even before we see it, knowing that God is able to do exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that worketh in us.(Eph 3:20)

As we follow Gods’ Word by faith believing God loves us and has a plan for us, we will be able to walk in it. We can have faith to believe God can work out His plan for us by just reading the Bible. It shows us what a wonderful planner God actually is. Ever since Creation, He has worked on a timetable. He has had certain events scheduled and those events always take place exactly at the appointed time. The Bible proves that God never fails and He is never late.

In( Gen 15:13-14) God promised to bring the Israelites out of Egypt after 400years. Scholars tell us that God kept that timetable to the day. When the Jewish nation went into captivity in Babylon during Jeremiahs’ day God had already planned their deliverance. He told them that after 70 years He would bring them back to their own land and that is exactly what He did.

Jesus was born at the appointed time. He is coming back at the appointed time, and He will not be late. When it comes to the plan of redemption, the Almighty God is always right on time. In light of those facts, consider this. The same good God who planned those events is the one who lovingly planned our life. Based on His faithfulness He has the power to carry out that plan. (Jer 29:11) For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith the Lord, thoughts of peace and not of evil, to give you an expected end.(a future and a hope) As long as we yield to Gods’ Word and obey Him, we can be sure that God will carry out that plan in our life.



Bible Verse:


Many are the afflictions of the righteous, but the Lord delivereth him out of them all.

                                                                                                                                                               - Psalm 34:19


                                               psalm 34_19

Everyone of us or someone we know is facing some kind of problem today – some kind of trouble, maybe a disease that medical science can’t cure or a family or financial problem. We can’t escape these problems without the help of God. God has promised to deliver us no matter what the devil has afflicted us with. The Word of God says the afflictions of the righteous are many, but the Lord delivers him out of them all. Psalm 91:9,11 says because you have made the Lord your refuge, and the Most High your dwelling place, there shall no evil befall you nor any plague or calamity come near your tent. For He will give His angels charge over you to accompany and defend and preserve you in all your ways.

God gives His angels charge over us to protect us, to keep us and minister to us (Heb 1:14) says, “Are not the angels all ministering spirits sent out in the service of those who are to inherit salvation”. If we are born again and an heir of salvation, angels are sent out in service of us. (Read about the 3 faithful Hebrew children in Daniel 3). We need to be faithful to speak words of victory instead of defeat.

God has given us authority to speak God’s word in faith and see it manifest. The angels assigned to us are bound by our words of unbelief. They have been charged to hearken to God’s Word - Words of faith. (Psalm 103:20). Angels are waiting to hearken to the voice of His Word.

According to Mark 11:23, 24 decide what you want – make a quality decision and God will act on it. When sick don’t blame others, as it shows you are without fault. Let us get ourselves straightened out first. So decide what you want. Believe what you have asked in prayer, God has heard it. He hears us because we pray according to His will (John 11:40-42)

We believe not with the flesh (our senses). There are two men (2 Cor 4:16) the outward (flesh) and inward man (spirit). We are designed to believe the impossible (Rom 10:10). Receive what you have asked first spiritually, and then give thanks to God for answering our prayer. But from the time we have prayed what we desire, a fight begins because the enemy tries to keep us from manifesting what we prayed for, by placing doubts and unbelief in our mind (Dan 10:10-13), so we should stand strong, unmoving in our faith, making sure we do not speak words of unbelief, Our prayers must be answered (Titus 1:2). God cannot lie.

So we put God’s promises of deliverance in our heart and in our mouth continually giving the angels the Word they need to protect us. When tempted to discuss how bad our situation is- we stop. We remember our great salvation. We remember the angels and remember what God’s Word says about our situation. Then we open our mouth and set our angels free to minister to us.





 Bible Verse:


Thou will show me the path of life; in thy presence is fullness of joy; at thy right hand there are pleasures for evermore.

                          - Psalm 16:11


We cannot rejoice in the Lord in our own strength. God by the power of the  Holy Spirit gives us this power through His presence. In His presence there is fullness of joy. And the only way to live in His presence is to study the Word of God and meditate on the Word.

We cannot rejoice in the Lord without knowing His Word and meditating on  His Word and fellowshipping with people who know God as we get our strength from one another. We cannot fellowship with the world and live like an over comer.

Psalm 119:162 says I rejoice at thy Word, as one that findeth great spoil. God placed Adam in Eden and gave him His Word. If he would obey and follow God’s Word he would live a joyful, victorious life.

The joy of the Lord is in obeying God’s word, taking His word seriously in all circumstances.

The world tries to convince us it’s more exciting to sin, than to obey God. But Jesus proved that it’s not. He lived the most exciting life in history. Jesus was powerful and joyful because He always lived in the Word of God, even when he was in difficult circumstances, he always had peace. When we start living in the Word, we too will find peace and joy.

(Col 3:16) Let the Word of Christ dwell in you richly in all wisdom, teaching and admonishing one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing with grace in your hearts by the Lord.

Obedience to God will lead us unto the most thrilling life of victory and blessing we could ever imagine.

(Jer 29:11) For I know the thoughts that I think towards you, saith the Lord, thoughts of peace and not of evil, to give you an expected end (future and hope).

You learn to follow His directions on a daily basis, just doing what pleases Him. God will provide those directions through His written Word, by the inward witness and by the voice of His Spirit. When we study the written word of God and be quick enough to listen to the inward witness which is the voice of our own spirit enlightened by the Holy Spirit, we recognize His directions.

When God speaks, we will know it’s Him because what we are hearing is right in line with His written Word. And then we can walk in obedience with nothing to hinder us receiving what we need.

When we make the decision to live by faith, because the Word of God said. “The just shall live by faith (Heb 10:38) and begin making decisions based on the Word of God rather than on our circumstances, we ensure our success in life.




 Bible Verse:


I am crucified with Christ, nevertheless I live; yet not I, but Christ liveth in me, and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by the faith of the Son of God, who loved me, and gave himself for me.

                                                                                                                                                                             - Galatians 2:20

There are many things in our lives that can be solved by simply making the right decision. A decision from which there is no retreat, no argument, a decision made by a deliberate act of our will. God will not make our decisions for us. He has provided everything else. He has set before us life and death, blessing and cursing, therefore choose life (Deu.30:19). But the actual choosing, the decision is up to us.
We will not be bound to and dominated by the circumstances of this world when we use this powerful decision- making ability according to the Word of God. When we make the decision to walk by faith and live by the Word of God, claiming the promises of God that belong to us in Christ Jesus and then begin to see ourselves according to the Word of God in our imagination operating in power, love, discipline and self control (2 Tim.1:7). We begin to see ourselves making these firm concrete decisions. We see ourself the way God sees us.
Instead of considering our body, we begin to consider Jesus, fixing our mind on Him we start programming our spirit with the Word of God. Deciding that no matter what happens we are going to choose Jesus and His Word instead of what our body and our circumstances say.
The Word of God is the power of God, we are not making a decision that we have to carry out in our own human strength. God will back us up and enable us to be overcomers.

So whatever our battle is today, in whatever area we want victory, we make a quality decision and stand firm.




Bible Verse: ThanksGiving


"By him therefore let us offer the sacrifice of praise to God continually, that is, the fruit of our lips giving thanks to his name."

                                   - Hebrews 13:15

                                          GiveThanks 1


Thanksgiving increases our faith. Thanksgiving and praise are integral parts of prayer. When you believe, you receive what you have asked God for, according to His will then you begin to praise God for the answer. You thank God that it is done for you and your need is already met. In reality all our needs have already been supplied in Jesus. Its only a matter of appropriating what we already have. Thanksgiving is an important part of this process.


There is power in the praise of God. Praise was ordained by God for a definite reason.

Psalm 8:1-2 “O Lord our Lord, how excellent is they name in all the earth! who hast set thy glory above the heavens. Out of the mouth of babes and sucklings hast thou ordained strength because of thine enemies, that thou mightest still the enemy and the stranger”. Jesus quoted this Psalm in Matt. 21:16 “Out of the mouth of babes and sucklings thou has ordained perfected praise”. He equates praise with strength. God ordained praise to still the enemy. Praise stops satan right in his tracks. It is  weapon we are to use in calling a halt to satan’s manoeuvres.

Psalm 9:1-4 says

I will  praise thee, O Lord, with  my whole heart. I will shew forth  all thy marvellous works.

I will be  glad and rejoice in thee: I will sing praise to thy name, O thou most High.

When mine enemies are turned back, they shall fall and perish at thy presence.

For thou hast maintained my right and my cause: thou satest in the throne judging right.

Whatever challenge you face and  in the midst of your needs begin to praise God. We wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against satan’s force (Eph. 6) Praise is the vital  weapon in our warfare against satan and his forces. Our enemies will have to turn back. They will fall and perish at God’s presence as God inhabits the praises of His people (Psalm 22:3). And the peace and victory that Jesus bought for us will be ours.Praise God that the mountain of the problem is gone even while its still standing there. Praise Him for the  blood of Jesus that paid the price for your sin and delivered you from every curse. Praise God for setting you free from the bondage of satan.




Bible Verse


"Hast thou not known? hast thou not heard, that the everlasting God, the Lord, the Creator of the ends of the earth, fainteth not neither is weary? there is no searching of His understanding.

He giveth power to the faint; and to them that have no might He increaseth strength Even the youths shall faint and be weary, and the young men shall utterly fall:

But they that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint."


                                                                                                        - Isaiah 40:28-31





Without faith life is depressing. Believing that God will bring us through will put joy back in our heart. The joy of the Lord is our strength (Neh 8:10), and instead of fainting, our strength will be renewed like the eagle’s. We will walk and not faint.

No one can stand alone against the pressures of this life. We are created to be God dependent      (Jer 10:23). Every human endeavour that is not ordered and empowered by Him is doomed to fail (Psalm 127:1). When we live a life wholly dependent on God we soar above every problem the devil throws our way. This can happen when we wait on the Lord, i.e., looking to the Lord in expectation of good. That is what we call faith. Only through faith we can renew our strength even without growing weary and walk without fainting. Faith is spiritual energy. With it we are strong. Faith comes from God through His Word (Rom 10:17). Therefore, to have faith we must seek God through meditating of His Word.

The Lord is good unto them that wait for Him, to the soul that seeketh Him (Lam 3:25). God promised, “Seek ye me, and ye shall live.” (Amos 5:4). Jesus declared, “Seek and ye shall find.”(Matt.7:7). As we seek the Lord with all our heart we are energized.





Bible Verse



"And as they were afraid, and bowed down their faces to the earth, they said unto them, why seek ye the living among the dead?"

                                              - Luke 24:5

                                              jesus resurructed


 The angel asked the women at the tomb,” Why seek ye the living among the dead?”


The women who came to the tomb that resurrection morning were seeking Jesus, but they were not seeking a living victorious Christ. They were grieving because the Jesus they were seeking was dead.

Likewise, we often seek a dead God. We pray and talk about how big and impossible our problems are, just as if God was dead. We forget or do not believe that Jesus overcame ALL the problems of this life. Jesus has conquered death and hell. If we pray the risen Christ, then death won’t overwhelm us either.

When the women at the tomb believed that Jesus was alive, all their sadness turned to joy. We would feel the same when we start relating to a risen Christ who has put all our enemies under His feet. It is not enough to just seek Jesus, we need to seek the risen Lord Jesus. We need to recognize that Jesus is Almighty and we have access to Him who has all power in heaven and earth. We need to come to the risen Christ and expect resurrection power to flow into our situations.

Faith comes from God’s word (Rom 10:17). The Lord has given us exceeding great and precious promises, but our unbelief still causes some of us to doubt the resurrection of our Lord Jesus Christ. Meditating on God’s word causes faith to come and doubt to go. It causes us to look for a Good who is alive and able to handle any problem we have.

If sorrow is filling your heart, it is because somehow you have been blinded to the victory that the resurrection produces. Believe Jesus is alive and Lord over all your circumstances today and you will see the difference it makes.


The Lord is always with us. He never leaves us, but we often miss Him. We fail to perceive His presence because we look through the eye of reasoning instead of looking through our hearts by faith. The disciples on the road to Emmaus recognized Jesus when He broke bread with them (Luke 24:30-31). It is when we have communion with the Lord by faith, that our eyes are opened to His presence. As we look through our eyes of faith at the one who has promised never to leave you nor forsake you (Heb 13:5) our sorrow will turn to joy.





Bible Verse

"For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places."
                                                                                                                         - Ephesians 6:12 



Armor of_God


       When the Lord Jesus Christ died on the cross for us, He broke Satan’s power over us.(Col 2:15). We see Christ’s total victory over the powers of evil. He completely stripped the powers of Satan and the demons. (Heb 2:14). For as much then as the children are partakers of flesh and blood, he also himself likewise took part of the same, that through death he  might destroy him that had the power of death, that is, the devil;


This is the full freedom which Christ accomplished for us. Having dealt with our sins and the Law on the cross, Christ also dealt with satan and his demons. During His time on earth, Jesus prophesied that He would judge the prince of this world. “Now is the judgment of this world; now shall the prince of this world be cast out.” (John 12:31). satan may have felt that he triumphed over Christ when the Saviour died on the cross, but in turn satan discovered what a great defeat he had suffered, from which he will never be able to recover.

Christ disarmed satan, including all of the evil powers and authorities associated with him. It is necessary for us, the believers to claim the victory, by faith, in order to benefit from what Christ accomplished on the cross. This is where the believer needs to be strong in the Lord, and in the power of his might.” (Eph 6:10).

In Joshua’s time the Israelites were commanded to take the land for it to be theirs (Josh 1:2,3). God was telling Joshua, “I have given you this whole land, but you must go in and take it”. So also, God is telling the believer, “I have given you all these blessings, but you must appropriate them for yourself in order for them to do you any good”.

No doubt, at first satan thought he had triumphed when Christ was crucified and buried. But by the power of God, Christ was resurrected, ascended to heaven, and is now seated at the right hand of the Father. Thus, God was completely vindicated, and satan was completely thwarted. The devil and his armies were completely conquered, and their power was absolutely broken. This is why when we take our stand in Christ and use the spiritual armor (Eph 6:13-17) satan cannot harm us.

We might be tested, but God will never allow satan to overcome us as we walk in dependence on Him. We are complete in Him and have all we need to live in victory over satan and sin. So we need to heed the words of scripture “Walk in the spirit and ye shall not fulfil the lust of the flesh.” (Gal 5:16). Also, that the righteousness of the law might be fulfilled in us, who walk not after the flesh,  but after the spirit.” (Rom 8:4)

Christ triumphed over principalities and powers by means of the cross. (Col 2:15)

Because of all that Jesus Christ has accomplished for us, we can say with the Apostle Paul. “Now thanks be unto God, which always causeth us to triumph in Christ Jesus (2 Cor 2:14). Because the triumph of Christ makes it possible for us to be victorious Paul said, “Therefore, my beloved brethren, be ye steadfast, unmovable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, for as much as ye know that your labour is not in vain in the Lord”. ( 1 Cor 15:58)

How wonderful it is to realize that because we are complete in Christ , He gives us the power we need to triumph over evil because He triumphed over evil on the Cross.



Bible Verse


"Charity suffereth long and is kind: …….. Beareth all things, believeth all things, hopeth all things, endureth all things."

                - 1 Corinthians 13:4-7
                                                  overwhelming-gods-love 1


God’s Word says, “Where there is no vision, the people perish.” (Prov. 29:18). Lack of hope is behind most, if not all, of the self destruction we see in the lives of people today. Hopelessness is a terrible thing.


Those who do not have a strong faith in the future throw today away without any consideration of the consequences. The destructive habits of people are rooted in despair or hopelessness. Jesus used the fool who said, “Let’s eat, drink and be merry.´(Luke 12:19), as an example of someone without vision for the future. Those who do not live with one eye on the future are headed for disaster.

God’s love is the source of true hope. Only knowing a personal, loving God is working all things for our good (Rom 8:28) gives us true and lasting hope. God’s kind of love hopes all things. God has a perfect plan for our lives (Jer 29:11).

Regardless of where we are now, no matter how far off the track we may have strayed, God has a perfect course plotted for us to where we are supposed to be. He loves us in spite of what we have or have not done. As we believe this today, hope will spring up in our heart.

As we read and meditate on the Word of God daily, we come to know Him and honor (highly esteem) Him above all things. Because we love the Lord (Psalm 97:10) and abide in the Lord and His words abide in us. (1 John 2:14), we overcome evil (1John 5:18). We will have the assurance that whatsoever we ask of God according to His Will will be given us.





 Bible Verse

"But let patience have her perfect work, that ye may be perfect and entire, wanting nothing."

                                                                                                                                                   - James 1:4

                                                        fruit of_the_spirit


Developing our patience a little at a time, in everyday situations, is what will build a foundation for us to stand on when major trials come.

When we exercise patience, it grows. It we use it in small things it will be strong enough to handle the bigger things when they come along. Every fruit of the spirit increases in us as we exercise it.

When facing a challenging situation, though we have prayed the prayer of faith, believed we have received the answer, confessed the Word and keep standing on God’s promise, expecting a miracle, instead of getting better our situation grows worse. Soon all we can think about is how tired and fed up we are waiting for our answer to come. We are ready to say those damaging words, “I quit”, that cost most of the believers their victory.

Everyone of us who have ever walked by faith has gone through times like that. The devil uses tough situations in our life to pressure us into letting go of our faith.

But there is a force so powerful, it can carry us through those hard time in triumph.

The force of patience that comes from the heart and character of God Himself is so powerful that it can carry us through the hard times into victory. Patience is the force that keeps us from fainting under pressure. It is the quality that does not surrender to circumstances or succumb under trial.

Patience is a part of the fruit of the spirit and God equipped us with it the moment we were born again. He placed it into our recreated human spirit (Gal. 5:22,23).

God is extraordinarily patient (2 Peter 3:9). God has what it takes to get through hard times. He has the power to persevere until circumstances line up with His Word. Because we are born of His Spirit, we have that power too.

But just as water won’t flow from a faucet unless you open the valve, the reservoirs of patience God has within us won’t flow unless we release it by an act of our will.

Though the pressure is on and is intense, patience will see us through, as we open the valve and let the patience go to work. Choose to yield to the force of patience God has put within us. (Heb.10:36).- “For ye have need of patience, that, after ye have done the will of God, ye might receive the promise”.




Bible Verse

"There is therefore now no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus, who walk not after the flesh, but after the spirit.

For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus hath made me free from the law of sin and death."

                                                                                                                                                -  Romans 8:1,2

                             jesus hug


All of us struggle with bad habits at some time or another. We work at them to change. It might be a little slow in coming around. We will have to resist the devil in those areas. We can stand against him. We can take the Word of God and put him out.


In the meantime, we should not allow ourselves to be subjected to condemnation, whether physical or spiritual.

The condemnation of the carnal mind will weaken the spirit man. Yet we use condemnation on ourselves and each other all the time. We need to develop our own spirit and become skillful in the Word of righteousness regarding condemnation.

God never condemns us (John 3:17). For God sent not His Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through Him might be saved.

If God had wanted to, He could have condemned us (John 8:7-11). Jesus, the only one who could have cast a stone, said “Neither do I condemn thee; go, and sin no more”.

If we have sinned, confess it (1 John 1:9). If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.

When we confess our sins, we get rid of it. God wants us to judge what is wrong in our lives, to change our direction of destruction. We won’t be judged if we judge ourselves.

Accept the mercy that is new every morning. (Lam 3:22, 23) It is the Lord’s mercies that we are not consumed, because his compassions fail not. They are new every morning; great is thy faithfulness.

The Lord’s compassion fails not. It is new every morning.

Realize God is still working on us (Phil 1:6)

“Being confident of this very thing, that he which hath begun a good work in you will perform it until the day of Jesus Christ.”

How can we doubt His love when he had delivered us from all our troubles? God is working on us. When He finishes we will be perfect, flawless. God is committed at perfecting the work that He started in us.

We should learn to confess “there is no condemnation to those who are in Christ Jesus – and that’s me. Therefore, there is no condemnation to me, Praise God. I am walking after the dictates of my spirit, not after the dictates of my flesh.”

Jesus is not ashamed of us – therefore, we do not have to be ashamed of ourselves (Heb. 2:11). Believe that we are God’s workmanship created in Christ Jesus. Start agreeing with the Word, calling ourselves the righteousness of God in Christ Jesus (2 Cor. 5:21). Jesus had already won the victory for us. We receive that victory by faith. Knowing God loves us and we love Him, nothing can condemn us.




Bible Verse

"For verily I say unto you, That whosoever shall say unto this mountain, Be thou removed, and be thou cast into the sea; and shall not doubt in his heart, but shall believe that those things which he saith shall come to pass; he shall have whatsoever he saith.


Therefore I say unto you, What things soever ye desire, when ye pray, believe that ye receive them, and ye shall have them ".
                 - Mark 11:23,24

                             praying hands


Faith is released by speaking words (Gen 1:3,6,9,11,24,26,  Prov.18:20-21, Rom 10:8-10, 2 Cor 4:12). The faith that made Jesus marvel was a faith in the authority of the spoken word. Matt 8:8,10.

We shall have whatsoever we say if we believe and doubt not in our heart.

Faith is released by speaking words. Notice that speaking is emphasized 4 times in this one verse and the Lord commands us to believe that what we say will come to pass. We are to believe in the power of our words.

Failure to believe in the power of words won’t keep this law of God from working. The last part of this verse says, “he shall have whatsoever he saith”. If we receive this instruction and begin to speak words in faith that line up with God’s Word, then we will have the positive results that follow. But if we refuse this lesson and continue to speak words of doubt, we will eventually believe them and have the negative things that these words produce.

As stated in Matt 12:36,37 every word counts. There are no such things as idle words which will not work for us or against us. Death or life are in the power of every word we speak (Prov. 18:21). Our words can be our most powerful weapon against the devil or they can become a snare of the devil. (Prov.6:2)

 Faith filled words can move mountains. Jesus is using the word ’mountain’ symbolically to stand for any high obstacle that might stand in our way. Jesus said we should speak to the mountain or our problem. Few follow Jesus instructions and speak directly to the ‘mountain’. God has put certain things under our authority and we must exercise it. When a problem stands in our way, we must speak to the problem and command it to get out of our way, in the name of Jesus.

The born-again spirit of man is not the part of us that doubts. Doubts come to the mind.(soul)

There is one main difference between a God kind of faith and a human faith. A natural human faith which everyone has, believes only what it can see, taste, hear, smell or feel. God’s kind of faith can believe in things that cannot be seen (Rom 4:17) (Heb 11:1) Jesus is making this God kind of faith a prerequisite to receiving answers to prayer. You must believe that you receive your answer ‘ when you pray’ – not when you see the thing that you have desired.

The Lord moves instantly to answer our prayers that meet His qualifications-

1.You must ask in faith without wavering (Matt 21:22).

2.You must ask according to God’s will (1 John 5:14-15, Matt 6:10) and not to consume it upon 

    your own lust (Jas 4:2-3).

3.If we are seeking something more than we are seeking God, we are hindering our own supply.



    God moves in the spiritual realm and His workings are not always immediately evident to our physical senses. By faith, we must believe that He is answering our prayers before we see any physical evidence. If we fail to believe until we see something, then that is not faith (2 Cor.5:7), but rather doubt, and it will cause us not to receive the things which we desired of the Lord (James 1:5-7). Faith is our evidence (Heb 11:1) not what we see.


Bible Verse:


“So is the kingdom of God, as if a man should cast seed into the ground --- for the earth bringeth forth fruit for herself - - - But when the fruit is brought forth, immediately he putteth in the sickle, because the harvest has come.”                
                              - Mark4:26-29



     People want to be well. No one wants to be sick. But to be well, we have to make choices. How often have we seen someone with a terrible cough still smoking a cigarette? or an overweight person eating an ice-cream?

     Our fleshy nature likes to take the easy way. And it is much easier to give into habits than to break them. It is easy to give into our flesh and watch television every night like the rest of the world, than to spend our time putting God’s healing Word into our heart.

      A lot of people want to enjoy the benefits of healing without building the foundation for it from the Word of God. If we want a building we have to start below ground level and lay a foundation. If we want a harvest, we will have to plant something first.

      Everything in the natural world works on the principle of sowing and reaping. This law of sowing and reaping works in the spiritual realm too. Health, prosperity and everything in God’s kingdom is governed by the law of sowing and reaping. Jesus taught about it in Mark 4:26-29.

     According to the law of sowing and reaping, if we want health, we need to do more than just want it or believe for healing. We need to plant seed and the seed we plant is the Word of God concerning healing. We should look up all the healing scriptures in the Word of God and begin sowing them  in our spirit man by speaking them out loud everyday. Soon, they will grow up and yield a harvest of health.


Bible Verse:


“This book of the law shall not depart out of thy mouth: but thou shalt meditate therein day and night, that thou mayest observe to do according to all that is written therein: for then thou shalt make thy way prosperous, and then thou shalt have good success”.

                                                                                                    - Joshua 1:8



                             The Word

Putting God’s Word first and doing as it instructs will produce prosperity in every area of our lives. God is the one who made us. He created this world to function. The Bible is like the owner’s manual for humans. Success comes by following the instruction manual. Failure comes when we do it our way (Jer 10:23)

(2 Pet 1:3-4) Everything we need comes through the knowledge of God. That’s what His Word is. It’s His knowledge recorded for us in black and white. God’s knowledge has given us great and precious promises. That is the Bible.

The world’s system says, “The way to abundance is to hoard”.

God’s Word says, “Give, and it shall be given unto you” (Luke 6:38).

The world says, “The way to happiness is to put self first”

Jesus said, “He that loseth his life for my sake shall find it” (Matt 10:39)

The world says “Hurt me and you will die”

Jesus said to turn the other cheek (Matt 5:39)

God’s Word is awesome! Put the Word first in your heart and actions, and watch prosperity come. 


Bible Verse:

“ There are not found that returned to give glory to God, save this stranger ”.



                                                                                                                                     - Luke 17: 18

Relatively few people who receive the goodness of the Lord return to give Him thanks for what He has done. That does not keep the Lord from doing what is right for us. He healed all of these lepers according to their request, not just the one who was thankful. However, there was only one out of the ten that was made “whole”.

The Lord desires that we prosper in spirit, soul and body. He wants us to be whole not just healed. Part of the reason God meets our physical needs is to prove to us His willingness and ability to meet our emotional needs. The Lord is concerned about our temporal needs (Matt. 6:30) but He is even more concerned about our eternal needs. All of these lepers needed physical healing and the Lord was moved with compassion and met their needs. He also desired to meet their spiritual needs, but only one out of ten came back for that.

Being unthankful is always a sign that our “self” is exalting itself above God. A selfless person can be content with very little. A self-centered person cannot be satisfied. Thankfulness is a sign of humility and cultivating a life of thankfulness will help keep “self” in its proper place.

Thankfulness to the Lord for what He is and what He has done is a very important part of the Christian life. One of the many benefits of thanksgiving and praise is that they keep us from being “self” oriented. Giving thanks is a totally unselfish action and is a key to relationship with the Father that makes us “whole” and not just “healed”.

  Bible Verse:

“ And his name through faith in his name hath made this man strong, whom ye see and know: yea, the faith which is by him hath given him this perfect soundness in the presence of you all. ”.

- Acts 3:16

Miracles do not happen because of some special gift on an individual's life. Some believe that miracles do not happen today because all the apostles are dead. However there are still apostles alive today. Eph 4:11-13 says that apostles and prophets are given to the Church until we become perfect and measure upto the fullness of Christ's stature. That certainly has not happened yet, so apostles and prophets are still in the Church today.
Miracles never took place just because of God's call on someone's life. In Acts 3:16, Peter says very plainly that it was the faith in the name of Jesus, which this paralyzed man had, that produced his healing. We certainly still have faith today, because you cannot please God without it (Heb. 11:6). We still have the name of Jesus with all its benefits and privileges. You can't be saved without it (Acts 4:12).
Therefore, faith in the name of Jesus is what produces results. People with special gifts only help a person's faith; they are not a substitute for faith. If this was not so, then everyone would be healed through those who have the gift of healing and miracles. That's not the way it happens. The individual receiving the healing must believe too.
Don't let satan deceive you that because you don't have any special anointing or calling, you cannot receive your miracle from God. If you have Jesus, and faith in what He can do, you have all you need to receive anything from God.
Exercise your faith in Jesus today.

  Bible Verse:

“ Whosoever therefore shall humble himself as this little child, the same is greatest in the kingdom of heaven. ”.

                                        - Matthew 18:4

Jesus chose a child as an example of humility because humility’s dominant characteristic is God-dependency instead of self-sufficiency, and children are completely dependent upon their parents for everything. They look to them for love, wisdom, provision, protection and all the blessings of life. The humility of being completely in the hands of God was what Jesus was talking here. Humility is a step of faith – faith that God is the judge and that promotion comes from Him (Ps 75:6,7). He resists the proud and gives grace unto the humble. (I Pet. 5:5) When we trust Him and step out in faith, He provides everything we need. It is not by our might nor our power that we succeed but it is the Holy Spirit which makes us succeed in all that we put our hands to do.(Zech 4:6).

Humility is having faith in God, instead of ourself. We should always remember from where we have come and what God had given us -- prosperity, health and if nothing else our life.

As we walk in humility, completely trusting in Him for everything, He will impart to us all the love, wisdom and strength we need, and He will provide for us, protect us and bless us in ways we never dreamed of.

   Bible Verse:

  “Now is the judgment of this world: now shall the prince of this world be cast out”.
                                                                                                            - John 12:31

    The only reason satan ever had any right to become a prince or rule over us was, because we yielded ourselves to him through sin (Rom 6:16). Since Jesus bore our sins in His own body on the tree (1 Peter 2:24) satan no longer has power or authority over those who accept Jesus’ gift of salvation. Satan has been “cast out” – stripped of any power he had. Now he can only deceive, and if we fall for his lies we stop God’s blessings from flowing in our lives.

    The reason why a believer must live a holy life, is to avoid satan’s bondage. When we obey sin we yield ourselves to satan, the author of that sin (Rom 6:12-16). Yielding to sin is yielding to a person – satan. God does not impute the sin to us, but the devil does. Our actions either release the power of satan or the power of God in us.

    Although God is not imputing our sins unto us, we cannot afford the luxury of sin because it allows satan to have access to us. When a Christian does sin sometime and gives the devil an opportunity to produce death in his life, the way to stop him is to confess the sin to God. God is faithful and just to take the forgiveness that is already present in our born again spirit and release it in our flesh, thereby removing satan and his stronghold.

    A person who abandons himself to sin is actually becoming a slave to the devil while a person who obeys righteousness is yielding himself to the Lord. This is why a Christian should live a holy life.

   Bible Verse:

  Set a watch, O Lord, before my mouth; keep the door of my lips.

                                                                                            - Psalm 141:3



   David knew the power of words. He used them to praise the Lord personally and also established singers in  the tabernacle who praised God twenty four hours a day. David used words to draw the hearts of the people  toward him and toward the Lord.

   He also knew the power words have to destroy. He witnessed this first hand from his son. Absalom spoke to  everyone who came to his father, and stole their hearts away from David by his fair words. (II Sam.15:16).
 No doubt, Solomon’s statement in Proverbs 18:21- regarding death and life being in the power of the  tongue  was the truth Absalom heard his father utter many times before.

   Words are powerful. We cannot tame our tongue on our own but God can. David was calling upon the power of God  to do what he could not do in his own strength (Psalm 141:3- Set a watch, O Lord before my mouth; keep the  door of my lips).

   Our words are important, but so are the words of every person we hear. To succeed in the kingdom of God,  we not only have to watch what we say, but we must guard what we hear. Christians are exposed to the  negative words of this world, the miseries and sorrows of mankind through the newspapers, news bulletins,  movies, songs, etc., for entertainment.

   These words have power – negative power. They have power to depress and cause fear. We don’t need that.  Think about the words you hear today. Do you really need or want what you are seeing and hearing? Probably  not. Choose life instead of death (Deut.30:19).

  Bible Verse:

 But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and His righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.

                                                                                                      - Matthew 6:33     



   Jesus is commanding us not to worry or be anxious about our material needs being met. It would not be  possible to have no thought whatsoever about our physical needs. Even Jesus thought about His need for  money to pay taxes (Matthew 17:24-27). We are simply not to be occupied with thinking about riches or spend  time worrying about our necessities. They will be added unto us as we seek the kingdom of God. " The  Kingdom of God " more specifically is referring to Christ living and ruling in our hearts.

   Jesus was not against riches but against covetousness. Because it is so easy to lust after money and the  things it can provide. The Lord established a system whereby prosperity is a by-product of putting God first.  We should no more reject the blessing of prosperity than we should covet it, which would be idolatry. We  should use our jobs and other revenue producing abilities to first and foremost advance the kingdom of God  enabling many people to hear and receive the gospel. If we do that, then God will make sure our needs are  met.

   We cannot take our money with us to heaven but we can send it on before us through giving to the poor, we  are laying up treasures in heaven. The reason for not laying up treasures on the earth is so that we will not  have our hearts drawn away from the things of God. A key to success in the kingdom of God is singleness of  purpose. We do not have the capacity to do our best in two areas at the same time, therefore if we will  simply put God and His kingdom first in every area of our lives, He will add up unto us all the wealth that we  need ( Matt 6:33).

 "The blessing of the Lord, it maketh rich and He addeth no sorrow to it."(Proverbs 10:22).

  Its when we covet after money that we pierce ourselves through with many sorrows  (1 Timothy 6:10)


  Bible Verse:

 For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in Him should not  perish, but have everlasting life.
                                                                                                    - John 3:16   

   The purpose of Jesus coming to this earth was to give us eternal life. Jesus was God's way to man and man's  way to God. Sin separated us from God, a God who is holy and just. As we could not pay for our sin Jesus  Christ - the Son of God paid for our sin redeeming (bringing us into right standing with God) us and thereby fulfilled His ultimate purpose of reconciling man to  God. 
   Jesus died for our sin, so we could enter into close fellowship with God without the barrier of sin which had  separated us. This is eternal life, its not just a length of life, but rather a quality of life. Eternal life is  intimacy with God Almighty and Jesus.
   Today , take full advantage of your salvation and go beyond the basic forgiveness of sins into intimacy with  Almighty God.
