*Rev. Anthony Akinmoyo,*

*ACTIVATING THE GLORY* Pt 2
2 Thessalonians 2:14 (KJV) Whereunto he called you by our gospel, *to the obtaining of the glory of our Lord Jesus Christ.*
John 17:22 (KJV) *And the glory which thou gavest me I have given them; that they may be one, even as we are one:*
Indeed we are partakers of His glory by reason of salvation therefore, no shame of any kind shall be associated with us again. Below is one of the covenant weapons required to activate it in our lives.
*LOVE FOR GOD.*
1 Corinthians 2:9 (KJV) *But as it is written, Eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered into the heart of man, the things which God hath prepared for them that love him.*
The hotter your love for God the greater your glory. Human mind cannot comprehend the magnitude of glory that shall reveal in His lovers. You need to enter into an irrevocable love with God in order to activate His glory.
Romans 8:28 (KJV) *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.*
One thing that commands every other good thing in life is our love for God. When God and His kingdom become first in your life then you are set for unlimited manifestation of His glory. .
Matthew 22:37-38 (KJV)
 *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 6:33 (KJV) *But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.*
Beloved, God’s love for humanity is an everlasting love, He demonstrated this by sending His only Son to die for us even when we were yet sinners.
Jeremiah 31:3 (KJV)
*The Lord hath appeared of old unto me, saying , Yea, I have loved thee with an everlasting love: therefore with lovingkindness have I drawn thee.*
See *John 3:16* and *Romans 5:8*.
We did nothing to secure His love, it is just His nature to love. But now God is seeking those who will love Him in return so as to manifest His greatness through such persons.
Your love for God will provoke heaven to constantly open over you. In fact, love for God is the pathway to unstoppable prosperity.
Proverbs 8:21 (KJV)
 *That I may cause those that love me to inherit substance; and I will fill their treasures.*
Remember, silver and gold belong to God and He gives them to His lovers. *Hag 2:8*
Your love for God is your failure proof in life because love never fails. As long as you are in love with God, you can never fail.
1 Corinthians 13:8 (TLB) *All the special gifts and powers from God will someday come to an end, but love goes on forever..*
When God found David, as a lover, a man whose heart is after God, He so much decorated His life with glory and honour that till this day, David is still being celebrated.
In fact, David was addicted to God that he put his life at stake to dare Goliath when the name of the Lord was being abused. I believe that was one of the reasons God shifted him from the wilderness to the palace.
Acts 13:22 (KJV)
*And when he had removed him, he raised up unto them David to be their king; to whom also he gave testimony, and said, I have found David the son of Jesse, a man after mine own heart, which shall fulfil all my will.*
See *Psalm 89:20-37.*
PROOF OF HIS LOVE.
A. Walking on obedient.
1 John 5:3 (NLT) *Loving God means keeping his commandments, and really, that isn’t difficult.*
What are His commandments ?
Mark 16:15 (KJV) *And he said unto them, Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature.*
Matthew 28:19 (KJV) *Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost:*
I see the Holy Spirit release afresh the love of God into your heart which will activate His glory in your life in the mighty name of Jesus!
> Thank you my heavenly Father for the gift of another beautiful day.
> Thank you my Lord for your loving kindness towards me and my household.
> Thank you my Lord for making me a partaker of your glory.
1. Romans 5:5 (KJV)
*And hope maketh not ashamed; because the love of God is shed abroad in our hearts by the Holy Ghost which is given unto us.*
Sweet Holy Spirit, help me to love God with all my being in the mighty name of Jesus!
2. 2 Timothy 1:7 (KJV)
*For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind.*
O Lord my God, release upon me the spirit of love so as to love you without reservation in the mighty name of Jesus!
3. 1 Thessalonians 3:12 (KJV)
*And the Lord make you to increase and abound in love one toward another, and toward all men , even as we do toward you:*
O Lord my God, grant me grace to always walk in love towards my neighbours, colleagues and brethren in the mighty name of Jesus!
4. Ephesians 3:17 (KJV) *That Christ may dwell in your hearts by faith; that ye, being rooted and grounded in love,*
O Lord my Father, help me by your Spirit to be rooted in love towards you in the mighty name of Jesus!
5. 1 Corinthians 9:22 (KJV) *To the weak became I as weak, that I might gain the weak: I am made all things to all men, that I might by all means save some.*
O Lord my God, grant me grace and wisdom for soul winning in the mighty name of Jesus Christ!
6. John 15:8 (KJV) *Herein is my Father glorified, that ye bear much fruit; so shall ye be my disciples.*
O Lord my Father, empower me to be a fruit bearing saint ( Soul addict) in the mighty name of Jesus Christ!
7. Isaiah 62:3 (KJV) *Thou shalt also be a crown of glory in the hand of the LORD, and a royal diadem in the hand of thy God.*
O Lord my Father, array my life and family with your glory and beauty in the mighty name of Jesus Christ!
8.1 Chronicles 29:12 (KJV) *Both riches and honour come of thee, and thou reignest over all; and in thine hand is power and might; and in thine hand it is to make great, and to give strength unto all.*
i. O Lord my Father move my destiny, family, career, ministry into greatness and perfection in the mighty name of Jesus Christ!
ii. O Lord my Father and my God, exercise your power to make great in my life and family in the mighty name of Jesus Christ!
9. Esther 6:1 (KJV) *On that night could not the king sleep, and he commanded to bring the book of records of the chronicles; and they were read before the king.*
O Lord my God, open book of remembrance in my favour in the mighty name of Jesus Christ!
10. Isaiah 45:11 (KJV)
*Thus saith the Lord , the Holy One of Israel, and his Maker, Ask me of things to come concerning my sons, and concerning the work of my hands command ye me.*
i. I decree and declare, the month of September shall be a month of unlimited supply in the mighty name of Jesus!
ii. I decree and declare, I shall experience sudden lifting in every area of my life in the mighty name of Jesus!
iii. I command favour to locate me and my family this month and beyond in Jesus mighty name!
iv. I decree and declare, I shall not see evil in the mighty name of Jesus Christ!
I declare this month is blessed in Jesus mighty name!
Thank you Father for working exceedingly and abundantly above all that I ask or think.
Thank you Father for uncommon results and answers.
See you tomorrow.
*Pray without ceasing.*

STAY FOCUSED ON THE WORD OF GOD
“And because the haven was not commodious to winter in, the more part advised to depart thence also, if by any means they might attain to Phenice, and there to winter; which is an haven of Crete, and lieth toward the south west and north west.” Acts 27:12 KJV
The problem with believers is that we are seeing where we are and not what God is revealing to us. We are not seeing what God wants us to see. The Word of God will always show you what God intends. And that should be the focus of your life.
We are often carried away and we cast our attention on what men wants us to see and not what God wants us to see. In Acts 27:12 those folks took their decision based on what they saw. And because the haven or harbor was not commodious or comfortable to winter in “. So majority of the sailors advised them to depart thence also if by any means they might attain to Phenice. In other words, let’s get to a better harbor.
Majority said let’s go! Let’s not stay here. Let’s look for somewhere better. If that’s what you build your life on, you are already doomed. You have already signed for failure because at times God begins with negative before you see the positive.
Right now, you may be in a very dark condition and it is so easy to say that your case is closed. No! That is the beginning of great things. Don’t use your present condition to determine where you are going.
Every child of God has a colourful future. Always focus on that future. Focus on where you are going. I mean if, for instance, you are driving and you are looking here and there, you know what will happen, you will crash. Those who navigate yachts will tell you that if you are on the steering, you should put your eyes on something in front of the boat called the tip. If you focus there, with the steering you’ll be moving straight, but if you look somewhere other than that, you will move towards another direction. Let your eyes be single-minded based on God’s Word.

HAVE A PERSONAL PRAYER CULTURE.
Then shall ye call upon me, and ye shall go and pray unto me, and I will hearken unto you_ *(Jeremiah 29:12).
The Lord called us to pray because He planned to answer. It’s therefore important that you have a plan for prayer. If you don’t have a plan for prayer, you’re most unlikely to pray. There’re lots of activities that could occupy your time and prevent you from praying. You have to make deliberate efforts to have a prayer culture and discipline; you could set an alarm system for reminders. Never be too busy to pray.
Prayer isn’t only when you want something from God. Prayer is that fellowship with the Lord where you talk to and with Him, and you give attention to Him in your spirit, to hear what He has to say to you. Every Christian must have such times.
If you’ve had challenges doing this consistently, you can ask the Lord to guide you in planning your personal prayer schedule. Don’t neglect it. There’re corporate prayer times where you participate in prayer programs and services, maybe in your church or cell group, but that’s different from having your personal prayer schedule.
Someone may say, *“Well, I pray once a week, not every day.”* No, that’s not good enough. Have a prayer schedule for every day, because it helps you have a spiritual consciousness every day. You may then wonder, *“How long should I pray?”*
It’s not for anyone to determine for you how long you should pray, but you’ll know if or when you’re not praying enough, because it’s a relationship between you and the Lord. If you think you’re not praying enough, then add more time. The truth is, the more time you spend in prayer, the more helpful it is to you, because apart from the fact that you’re talking to the Lord, there’s the edification of your spirit that you get from praying. Not only that; there’s also the education of your spirit. No one educates you like the Holy Spirit. In that atmosphere of prayer, He teaches you; He brings you information that enlightens and guides you. Glory to God!
Dear Father, I’m grateful for the opportunity of continuous fellowship with you through prayer. I have the discipline of prayer, and even now, I pray for lost souls around the world, that their hearts be open to accept the Gospel of Christ and be saved. Also, I pray for Christians who are sick in their bodies, that great grace be directed toward them for healing, restoration and feeling of wellness, in the Name of the Lord Jesus Christ. Amen.
Luke 18:1* And he spake a parable unto them to this end, that men ought always to pray, and not to faint;
Jude 1:20* But ye, beloved, building up yourselves on your most holy faith, praying in the Holy Ghost,
Ephesians 6:18* Praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, and watching thereunto with all perseverance and supplication for all saints;

You will laugh at destruction and famine. You will not be afraid of wild animals! It is as if you have a peace treaty with the wild animals and the rocks in the field. You will live in peace because your tent is safe. You will count your property and find nothing missing. You will have many children. They will be as many as the blades of grass on earth. You will be like the wheat that grows until harvest time. Yes, you will live to a ripe old age. We have studied this and know it is true. So listen to us, and learn for yourself. Job 5:22–27 [ERV]
In proverbs 23:7 the Bible says “for as he thinks in his heart so is he”. You can’t separate a man from his thoughts. You’re the exact reflection of your thoughts. This is where your journey to enjoying divine exemption begins. You must obligatorily take charge of your thoughts to triumph over the issues of life. The devil knows this that is why, he keeps bombarding people with negative news that would fill their heart with fear. He knows what faith is to God is what fear is to him. If he can get you to be fearful then he can perpetrate his wickedness around you. You remember that Job confessed to this when he said “that which I greatly feared has come upon me”(Job 3:25). You must therefore guard your heart with all diligence and make sure your mind remains continually renewed by the knowledge of God’s Word.
Take time to dwell on our anchor scripture and let it form your thought pattern. You must think exemption to enjoy exemption. Your thoughts must be different from the thoughts of the average person out there. If you are not going to suffer what they suffer; if you are not going to be vulnerable to what they are vulnerable to then you must not think like them. It doesn’t matter the level of inflation or the severity of economic recession, I don’t think lack; I don’t think scarcity so I don’t experience it. I have never thought that I or anyone around me could be a victim of the pandemic so it has never been heard of around me. I think divine health, I think abundance, I think success, I think possibilities only, and, those are what I experience daily. You must let the Word of God dwell in you richly and you must think on it day and night. Never leave your mind unattended to, never give Satan chance to sow thoughts of immorality, fear, bitterness, divorce, etc into your heart. Reject those evil thoughts as soon as they come by the authority in the Name of Jesus and only fix your mind on God’s Word. Your thoughts must be different for your case to be different.
Give God’s Word the first place in your life. Always give quality time and attention to the study of the Word and let it guide your thoughts all the time.
KEEP IN MIND
Your thoughts must be different for your case to be different.
