The Blessing of God Makes You Unstoppable

Genesis 28:1a &5a; Genesis 30:27; Genesis 32:4-5
And Isaac calIed Jacob, and bIessed him. . . *And Isaac sent away Jacob:. . .And Laban said unto him, I pray thee, if I have found favour in thine eyes, tarry: for I have learned by experience that the LORD hath blessed me for thy sake. *… Thus shall ye speak unto my lord Esau; Thy servant Jacob saith thus, I have sojourned with Laban, and stay there until now: And I have oxen, and asses, flocks, and menservants, and women servants…

No unfair treatment from others will be able to limit you. Nor will any physical situation limit the manifestation of the blessing of God that is on the inside of you. Psalm 16:5-6 (NIV) says, “Lord, you have assigned me my portion and my cup; you have made my lot secure. The boundary lines have fallen for me in pleasant places; surely I have a delightful inheritance.” Your real allocation in any situation comes from God Himself. Your divine inheritance in God will manifest and overshadow every negative experience in your life. You will remain fruitful and productive.

Our text above evidences the fact that although Jacob ran away empty handed after he was blessed by his Father, he returned fully loaded. Despite how much Laban tried to cheat him, God continued to cause Jacob to prosper, Gen. 31:7. Genesis 26:19-22 reveals that despite how much the Philistines endeavored to cover up the wells that Isaac dug, Isaac was empowered to continue to relocate and dig until the Philistines grew tired and finally left him alone. He called the new well ‘Rehoboth,’ meaning the Lord has given us room and we will flourish in the land. Child of God, there is a Rehoboth anointing upon your life. No matter where you find yourself, you will flourish. Nothing could stop Isaac, because the real well was within him. Nothing will steal your joy. With joy, you will continue to draw from the wells of salvation that are on the inside of you, lsa. 12:3.

Faith Declaration:
By the blessing of God that Is in me because of Christ. I am unstoppable and I can NEVER be limited or disadvantaged.

TOPIC: THE TRAGEDY OF VISIONLESSNESS

SCRIPTURE: Where there is no vision,”the people perish”: but he that keepeth the law,”happy is he. Proverbs 29″:18

THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: The bankruptcy of mentality is the reason for stagnation in life.

One day,”the Lord laid it in my heart to assist a young man. So, I asked him a question”: “What can you do if you are assisted financially? What is on your mind? The young man replied,”“Let me go and think about it; I will get back to you sir.”  After six months, I saw him and asked him again”: “Young man,”what do you want to do? What is on your mind? He said, “I will see you when I am sure of what to do sir.” 

After this, I received an inspiration from God”: “Things do not happen to people by accident,”since you do not know people’s mind, you cannot question the events of their life.” I had thought that this man was stranded because of some demonic attacks but obviously, it was a mental attack. He was stranded because he had nothing in mind to do with his life. Mentality bankruptcy is a major reason for stagnation in life. The best way to be free from mental bankruptcy is to live your life on the basis of the Word of God. 

Beloved, to walk in the realm of vision demands that you attune yourself with God’s Word on a permanent basis. Make up your mind never to exist with a blank mind. Let the Scripture fill your mind always and the Scripture in your mind will form a mental picture for your desired future.

Remember this”: The bankruptcy of mentality is the reason for stagnation in life.

ASSIGNMENTS:

1. Do not live with an empty mind. 

2. Let the Word of God dwell richly in you always.

PRAYER: O Lord I ask that You deliver me from every form of mental bankruptcy. Let Your Word dwell richly in me,”Lord, in Jesus’ Name.

DAILY READING: 1 Kings 8:1-66,”Acts 7″:51-8:13,”Psalm 129″:1-8,”Proverbs 17″:1

AMAZING FACT: With nearly 225 million Christians or about 70% of the population,”the United States remains the nation with the most Christians. They are followed by Brazil and Mexico in South America, Nigeria, Russia, Philippines, Congo, Ethiopia, Italy and Germany.

QUOTE”: A vision is what is ahead of you that keeps you going. It is what keeps you from being depressed and discouraged. It is what keeps you from giving up. Culled from 15 KINGDOM STRATEGIES FOR SURVIVAL by Dr Paul Enenche.

PROPHETIC DECLARATION/WORD: Receive the grace to escape the tragedy of visionlessness in Jesus’ Name.

THEME: SOLD OUT TO JESUS

MEMORISE
“Thou therefore endure hardness as a good soldier of Jesus Christ.”
-2 Timothy 2:3

Bible Reading: 2 Corinthians 11:22-33
22. Are they Hebrews? so am I. Are they Israelites? so am I. Are they the seed of Abraham? so am I.

23. Are they ministers of Christ? (I speak as a fool) I am more; in labours more abundant, in stripes above measure, in prisons more frequent, in deaths oft.

24. Of the Jews five times received I forty stripes save one.

25. Thrice was I beaten with rods, once was I stoned, thrice I suffered shipwreck, a night and a day I have been in the deep;

26. In journeyings often, in perils of waters, in perils of robbers, in perils by mine own countrymen, in perils by the heathen, in perils in the city, in perils in the wilderness, in perils in the sea, in perils among false brethren;

27. In weariness and painfulness, in watchings often, in hunger and thirst, in fastings often, in cold and nakedness.

28. Beside those things that are without, that which cometh upon me daily, the care of all the churches.

29. Who is weak, and I am not weak? who is offended, and I burn not?

30. If I must needs glory, I will glory of the things which concern mine infirmities.

31. The God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, which is blessed for evermore, knoweth that I lie not.

32. In Damascus the governor under Aretas the king kept the city of the Damascenes with a garrison, desirous to apprehend me;

33. And through a window in a basket was I let down by the wall, and escaped his hands.

MESSAGE
Speaking in several passages of the Bible, the Holy Spirit makes it clear that anyone who will follow Jesus must possess a single-minded desire, characterized by faith, loyalty, enthusiasm and devotion to God (Luke 9:62, Acts 14:22, Titus 2:14, Hebrews 6:12).

In other words, as true disciples of Jesus, we are to be filled with unrestricted and single-minded zeal for God and live our lives completely sold-out to Him.

Indeed, God expects us to love Him above everything else in this world (Deuteronomy 6:5).

Our Lord says in Mark 8:34b-35;

“Whosoever will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow me. For whosoever will save his life shall lose it; but whosoever shall lose his life for my sake and the gospel’s, the same shall save it”.

This simply means that anyone who will follow Jesus Christ must deny self by refusing to satisfy personal interests or desires.
As a child of God, you are expected to deny yourself of personal interests and desires that are in conflict with God’s commandments or ways of His kingdom.

God’s will must have priority above all other interests in your life, and His laws should be your yardstick for measuring what is right or wrong.
Jesus further warned His followers against working to gain people’s approval, promising that those who run the risk of displeasing men for his sake will end up gaining everything.

“Jesus said unto him, thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind. This is the first and great commandment” – Matthew 22:37-38.

When we love God with our heart soul and mind we naturally develop great passion and zeal for anything that concerns Him.

This kind of zeal propelled the heroes of faith in the bible to accomplish great thing we read about today being totally sold out to God.

Abraham was willing to sacrifice his only son, David confronted a lion, a bear and Goliath, the three Hebrew boys defied the fiery furnace, and Daniel boldly went into the lion’s den.

Driven from pure zeal for God, Stephen faced death with unwavering boldness, and the apostles did great exploits for Him. By the grace of God, Christians are still doing great things for God’s today, especially in the least expected places’

Notwithstanding this, the Bible warns against zeal without knowledge, which breeds religious fanaticism and bigotry.
From today onward, be zealous for God, and you will see Him move heaven and earth just for you.
I pray for GRACE on anyone who is ready and zealous to serve God; receive Grace to go far, in Jesus Name.

PRAYER POINT::
Father, please grant me grace to declare Your word with boldness and zeal to all those around me, in Jesus’ Name

No turning back, no turning back.

Will you decide now to follow Jesus?
Will you decide now to follow Jesus?
Will you decide now to follow Jesus?
