CONTACTING DIVINE WISDOM THROUGH MEDITATION

“And Isaac went out to meditate in the field at the eventide: and he lifted up his eyes, and saw, and, behold, the camels were coming.”
Genesis 24:63. KJV

According to our Bible text today, “Isaac went out to meditate in the field at the eventide: and he lifted up his eyes, and saw, and, behold, the camels were coming”. You see, meditation is an old spiritual act that has been on for years; since the time of Genesis. The Bible implies that Isaac contacted divine wisdom and when he lifted up his eyes, the camels were coming. In other words, when he had meditated, his desires began to race towards him. Remember, that was when Rebecca came to him. When you begin to meditate on the Word, your desires will begin to race towards you. Ideas will begin to come to you. What you should do will begin to come to you. That was what happened to Isaac.

Isaac meditated in Genesis chapter 24 and by the time we saw him in Genesis chapter 26, he was already doing great exploits. That was when he sowed in the same land of famine and God greatly prospered him. It was through meditation that the idea of sowing in the famine came to him. While others were running away from sowing, he said ‘I will sow. ’And he became greater than his contemporaries. How did he know that he should sow in the same land? He was contacting wisdom that others did not have.

God has no favourites but respects principles. There were other people in the same land who did not sow. But Isaac chose to sow in the land because he contacted divine wisdom through meditation. Not only was Isaac blessed, he received a hundred-fold harvest in that year. The scriptures said he waxed great, he grew and became very great. That is what divine meditation can give to you. You will stand out among equals. You will be greater than your contemporaries because you are spending time to acquire divine wisdom.

[12/16, 10:19 AM] 919063: How to set your goals (5)

Monday 16th December 2019

‘My relatives stand afar off.’ Psalm 38:11 NKJV

Discern who belongs in your life and who doesn’t. One of the toughest parts about reaching your goal is discovering that some of the people closest to you don’t share it or want to be part of it. You can spend years trying to convince them. You may even be able to buy their short-term loyalty, but eventually they’ll leave you, often breaking your heart in the process. Paul wrote, ‘All those in Asia have turned away from me’ (2 Timothy 1:15 NKJV). ‘Demas has forsaken me, having loved this present world’ (2 Timothy 4:10 NKJV). Can’t you hear the heartache and disappointment in his words? And when God gives you a great goal, you may experience the same thing.

Somebody said, ‘In prosperity our friends know us; in adversity we know our friends.’ How true! When disaster blindsided Job, he said, ‘All my close friends abhor me, and those whom I love have turned against me’ (Job 19:19 NKJV). David’s experience caused him to say, ‘My relatives stand afar off’ (Psalm 38:11 NKJV). Solomon in his wisdom sums it all up: ‘Confidence in an unfaithful man in time of trouble is like a bad tooth’ (Proverbs 25:19 NKJV). The truth is that people who don’trespect your goal will detract from it. You can minister to them and try to encourage them with words that strengthen and bless, but if you insist on holding on to them, like an infected tooth, they will end up hurting you.

Jesus told his disciples, ‘If anyone will not welcome you or listen to your words, leave that home or town and shake the dust off your feet’ (Matthew 10:14 NIV). In order to reach your God-given goal, sometimes you have to do that.

Never Believe A Negative Report

And the word of the LORD came unto Jeremiah, saying, Thus saith the LORD; If ye can break my covenant of the day, and my covenant of the night, and that there should not be day and night in their season; [Then] may also my covenant be broken with David my servant, that he should not have a son to reign upon his throne; and with the Levites the priests, my ministers. As the host of heaven cannot be numbered, neither the sand of the sea measured: so will I multiply the seed of David my servant, and the Levites that minister unto me. Jer 33:19-22 KJV

The Prophet Isaiah said in Isaiah 53:1 that “Who hath believed our report? and to whom is the arm of the LORD revealed?” This suggests that there were other reports which of course were contrary to the reports from the man of God. Many a time, believers are faced with diverse reports calling for our attention. For instance, your body is showing you some symptoms of sickness, and doctors too are confirming it. People around you also may be adding theirs based on obvious realities around you. Such reports most times are negative and are based on the present physical realities. But the report from God is always positive and different from other reports because God is not bound by any other fact except what His Word says. It now depends on you to know which one you’ll give your utmost attention and will believe.

Going by how you feel in your body you know you’re sick, and the results of the tests too show the same, but the report from God says in 1 Peter 2:24 that ” by His stripes you were healed.” Your bank account is showing red, you’re surrounded by needs calling for urgent attention, people are calling you poor and helpless, but the Lord said He’s your ever present help in time of need; and He’s always there to supply all your need(Psa 46:1; Phil 4:19). So at this point you must decide whose report you will believe and accept as the ultimate. It is true the facts are evident, but the Bible says let God be true and every man a liar…” Rom 3:4.

The question then is, what are you supposed to do with a false report? It’s to discard it and reckon with the true one only. How factual it is notwithstanding. You see, this is usually hard for a lot of people to do because they’re ignorant of the Word of God(which is God’s own report) so their heart is not yet renewed by His Word. Consequently, they suffer defeats all the time. Let me let you know that the fact that a lie has several obvious facts to back it still doesn’t make it a truth, and the fact that a truth has no evidence to show now still doesn’t make it a lie.

This is the principle of faith and it’s the principle of the Kingdom. It is what helps us as believers to take charge of life affairs. A believer is supposed to walk by faith and not by sight (2 Cor. 5:7). The children of Jacob in Genesis 37:31-34, presented a cloth torn in pieces and drenched in blood to their father to suggest the death of Joseph, and he believed it and mourned seriously over the death of his son. But that never made it a truth. Likewise, in Mark 5:35-43, Jairus was told never to trouble Jesus anymore because his daughter had already died but Jesus(The Truth Himself) said their report was not true, He said the lady was not dead but sleeping. And eventually, He proved Himself to be true by the way He raised her back to life.

It is extremely important that you acquaint yourself with the Word of God and make it supreme over other negative facts staring you in the face now. Only those that believe the reports from God will see the outstretched Hand of His Almightiness.

PRAYER
Father I thank You for the integrity of Your Word. I walk by faith so I believe Your report concerning me over every other report and I see Your outstretched Hand maneuvering things in my favour all the time in Jesus Mighty Name.

KEEP IN MIND
The fact that a lie has several obvious facts to back it still doesn’t make it a truth, and the fact that a truth has no evidence to show now still doesn’t make it a lie.
I celebrate you

TOPIC: NO WEAPON FORMED AGAINST YOU SHALL PROSPER

SCRIPTURE: No weapon that is formed against thee shall prosper; and every tongue that shall rise against thee in judgment thou shalt condemn. This is the heritage of the servants of the LORD,”and their righteousness is of me, saith the LORD. Isaiah 54″:17

THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: Even if it was Lucifer that gathered his demons against you; relax,”that gathering scattered even before they gathered. 

A weapon is any object designed for fighting or attacking somebody.

As it is in the physical so also it is in the spiritual. There are spiritual weapons also designed by witches, wizards or demonic agents to inflict pain and destruction on their victims.  But the good news is that no weapon formed against you shall succeed (Isaiah 54″:17).

‘No weapon formed against you shall prosper’. God seems to be saying to you,”‘My child, the only conspiracy or gathering that can succeed against you is the one that was originated by Me. For as long as a conspiracy is not from Me, by Me or through Me, it is nothing to worry about, it cannot succeed against you.’ Hallelujah!

So, the matter is not the gathering, but who gathered them? Even if it was Lucifer that gathered his demons against you; relax, that gathering scattered even before they gathered. The meaning is, anytime someone tells you, ‘Do you know there is a gang up against you in your office; do you know there is a gang up against you in your village? Do you know there is a gang up against your life and destiny in the spirit world?’ Your response should be, ‘Who gathered them?’ The truth is if they were not gathered by God, they must scatter by fire. If God did not gather them, do not fear them; just exist and behave as if the devil does not exist.

Today, I prophesy that you shall exist above the reach of the enemy in this season and beyond, in Jesus’ Name.

 

REMEMBER THIS”: Even if it was Lucifer that gathered his demons against you; relax,”that gathering scattered even before they gathered

 

ASSIGNMENT(S)

1. Live and walk as if there is a spring under your feet because of the consciousness that no weapon formed against you can succeed. 

 

 

PRAYER”:Lord,”I confess that no satanic, witchcraft, diabolic plot or weapon formed against me in this season shall prevail. I am too fortified to be forced out of my life and destiny. I take refuge in You Lord, in Jesus’ Name.

 

QUOTE”: Anytime activity exceeds spirituality then adversity is inevitable culled from ‘Thou Art my Battle Axe’ by Dr. Paul Enenche

FOR FURTHER UNDERSTANDING GET THIS MESSAGE: No Weapon Formed Shall Prosper

DAILY READING: Micah 5:1 to 7:20,”Revelation 7″:1 to 17,”Psalm 135″:1 to 21,”Proverbs 30″:5 to 6

AMAZING FACT: The human embryo actually begins developing eyelashes between the 7th to 8th week of pregnancy!

DON’T FORGET TO ATTEND: The Healing and Deliverance Service tomorrow by 9:00am at the Glory Dome. Invite someone. God bless you as you do so.

PROPHETIC WORD/DECLARATION:I decree the scattering of every demonic/occultic gang up against your life and destiny in this season, in Jesus’ Name.
