A Strong Base of Faith 

A Strong Base of Faith

(1 Corinthians 2:5 NKJV)

“That your faith should not be in the wisdom of men but in the power of God.

Real Bible-based faith is a result of divine wisdom. The plan of God is that every believer should have a strong base of faith that is founded on the wisdom that comes from His word. The kind of faith that God requires from every of His children is not based on natural senses. In fact, it is totally opposed to what is supplied by the five human senses.

Child of God, you cannot afford to live on what you see or feel. You need something stronger for your walk with God to be productive. This is the only way that your spirit will be able to function effectively. A natural man is limited because he is bound by his senses.

On the other hand, a Christian has access to the unlimited power of God. However, it is your faith that brings this power on the scene of your life. Go for wisdom. Draw it out of the word of God until your faith is well fed. Your senses cannot take you to the place that God has in mind for your life. Be smart today and give your faith a strong base to rest on.

Evil communications do not proceed out of my mouth, but that which is good for the building up of others. My mouth is a well of life and wisdom flows out of it continually. My faith is not built on the wisdom of this world but on the power of God. I function in life by the wisdom that the Holy Spirit teaches.

I am very discerning of spiritual things because the wisdom of God is at work in me. I pay attention to the word of God, which is able to make me wise unto health, protection, deliverance and all-round soundness. I search the Scriptures daily and I always receive revelations and wisdom for a victorious living.

The devil cannot comprehend my life because I am founded on the wisdom of God. The wisdom of God works all things out for my good. My life is advancing because I am increasing in divine wisdom. The secrets of God for my life are revealed unto me. The eyes of my understanding are enlightened because I have the spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of God.

I have access to the hidden wisdom that God has ordained for my glory. I love correction and reproof. I am open to wise counsel and my destiny is protected from destruction. I maintain a teachable spirit and adhere to godly instructions. I have the mind of Christ and I reign in life by the supernatural wisdom that comes from above.

The Most Important Thing

The Most Important Thing

(Proverbs 4:7 NKJV)

“Wisdom is the principal thing; Therefore get wisdom. And in all your getting, get understanding.”

In order to have the best in life, it is necessary to get your priorities right. So many times we are so messed up where our list of priorities is concerned. Living like this can be costly. Godly wisdom, according to Proverbs 4, is the principal thing. This means that wisdom is the most important thing. Life without wisdom is full of struggles and stress.

Solomon understood how important wisdom is. When God gave him a blank check to fill, he quickly chose wisdom. He could have chosen riches and wealth but he knew that wisdom will eventually lead to riches and wealth. Wisdom is the root of every good thing in life. The very solution to every life situation is located in wisdom.

Wisdom’s root will produce every good fruit you need in life. The wisdom of God is primarily communicated through His word. The word of God will teach you how to deal with every affair of life. Be committed to developing a good relationship with God and His word. Then you will learn how to deal wisely with all affairs of life.

Your Health Insurance

Your Health Insurance

(Exodus 15:26 NKJV)

And said, “If you diligently heed the voice of the LORD your God and do what is right in His sight, give ear to His commandments and keep all His statutes, I will put none of the diseases on you which I have brought on the Egyptians. For I am the LORD who heals you.

The commandment that has been given to the New Testament believer -the born again Christian – is the commandment to love. In the Old Testament, they had to observe so many laws and ordinances because they did not have the built-in ability to walk in God’s love. As New Testament saints, we are wired for love.

When we let it, love flows from us freely. It is natural for us to obey God’s commandment to love. As we do so, we insure ourselves against sickness and diseases. That is why the devil fights so hard to keep us from walking in love. He does this so that he can exploit us and keep sickness and disease on us.

You have the ability to keep yourself and your household immune from sickness. People do everything in the natural to get rid of sickness. They try to eat right, maintain proper hygiene and see the doctor when necessary. It’s time to be that responsible spiritually. It is even more crucial to be responsible spiritually. Make yourself immune to sickness and diseases by walking in the love of God.

DAILY SCRIPTURE READING: READING: Exodus 15:1-26

MY DAILY CONFESSION

I am born of God and I have His nature of love. The love of God has been shed abroad in my heart. I release the force of God’s love within me on a consistent basis. I do not walk in strife, malice or unforgiveness. I walk freely in the love of God because it is my nature. I subject my flesh to walk in love. I do not walk according to the dictates of the flesh, but I walk as led by the Spirit of God. The Holy Spirit enables me to walk in love at all times.

God is with me, God is in me and God is for me so I cannot fail. I please God and obey His commandments. I love God and I love my neighbors as myself. I therefore walk under open heavens. God opens the windows of heaven over my life because I co-operate with Him by walking in love. I enjoy the benefits of the new covenant established on better promises. I walk in healing, health, prosperity, preservation and wholeness. I am satisfied with long life and prosperity.

I cannot fail in life because love never fails. Whatsoever I lay my hands upon prospers. I prosper in my health, family, relationships and my career. I am born to win and designed for success. I stand out in my location. I am distinguished because I walk in the love of God. I represent God adequately in the midst of a crooked and perverse generation. I shine as light. I am set upon a hill and I cannot be hidden. I am an effective witness of the kingdom of God because I walk in love.

A Better Covenant

A better convenant

(Hebrews 8:6 NKJV)

But now He has obtained a more excellent ministry, inasmuch as He is also Mediator of a better covenant, which was established on better promises.

The Old and New Testaments are very much different from each other. In the Old Testament, God was dealing with people with hardened hearts that could not consistently walk in His ways no matter how they tried. In the New Testament, God is dealing with saints that have His very nature. We are those saints and we have God’s nature of love.

The New Testament is based on the fact that God is now relating with the creatures of His love. Jesus is the mediator of this New Testament which is described as a more excellent ministry. The Bible also calls it a better covenant. As we walk in this better covenant by expressing our new nature of God’s love, we walk in better promises than those under the old covenant.

The men who walked with God in the Old Testament enjoyed some really great benefits. They were rich and prosperous and had the blessing of God over their households. Imagine that! We are entitled to better promises and greater benefits.

A Promise of Long Life

A Promise of Long Life

(Exodus 23:26 NKJV) No one shall suffer miscarriage or be barren in your land; I will fulfill the number of your days.

One of the benefits of walking in love is the promise of long life. When believers refuse to walk in the love of God, they actually shorten their own lives through their actions.

Walking in love guarantees a prosperous long life. Strife, division and unforgiveness, on the other hand, are agents of the enemy to rob us of this promise. Even when people hurt and offend you, continue to respond to them in kindness.

Do you want to live long on this earth? Do you want a prosperous long life? If you are planning to completely fulfill God’s purpose for your life, then you should desire a prosperous long life. If that is the case, then make up your mind to walk in the love of God at all times.

You must be willing to bring yourself in subjection to the love of God. Resist every temptation to walk in the flesh. You literally have your life in your own hands. Prolong that life by making a quality decision to walk in love at all times.

Present your body

Present your body

(Romans 12:1 NKJV) I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that you present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable to God, which is your reasonable service. ”

Walking in love is often a great sacrifice. Many times you have to crucify your flesh to walk in love. At such times your flesh screams in pain because it would prefer to do something else. Your flesh wants to continue in unforgiveness, strife, dissent and act contrary to the will of God. That is why you need to present yourself as a living sacrifice to God.

To sacrifice means to cause yourself pain in order to please another. It is time to cause your flesh pain in order to please God. Your reasonable service to God is your willingness to surrender your body to God even when you don’t feel like it. Refuse to walk in the flesh. Align yourself with God’s will.

Make the sacrifice and walk in love even when everything in your flesh wants to run in the opposite direction. After all, you are not your flesh but a spirit- being made in God’s image. While your flesh is screaming “I can’t”, your spirit is saying I can. Tune in to the spirit rather than the flesh.

Sanctified to Love

Sanctified to Love

(Hebrews 10:10 NKJV) By that will we have been sanctified through the offering of the body of Jesus Christ once for all. ”

We live in a selfish world. The spirit of “I” is predominant. The average man cares only about himself, his family and his belongings. People are mindful of themselves all day long. That is why you find that people are so short- tempered, always in a hurry and hardly enjoying their lives. You don’t have to live your life that way.

You are different. You have been set apart. Don’t come under the pressure to act, think or reason like everyone around you. You are sanctified. To be sanctified means to be set apart. It means to be separated from the world’s way of doing things. You are set apart to walk in the love of God.

You might look out of place when you walk in love. Go ahead and do it though. You will stand out. When you begin to reap the rewards that come with walking in love, you will not go unnoticed. You are set apart to walk in love. You are set apart to walk in results.

You are Accepted

You are Accepted

(Romans 5:8 NKJV) But God demonstrates His own love towards us, in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us.
Remember when you were still a sinner. You were disconnected from God. Your spirit was dead and estranged from God. Your desires were contrary to the will of God and you were doomed for hell.

Do you know that even in that messed-up state, God still loved you? God did not wait for you to clean yourself up and make yourself perfect before loving you. He did not wait for you to prove that you could be a candidate for the kingdom of God.

Even in that state of unworthiness, when you could not meet God’s demands, Christ died for you. That was a demonstration of love. That in itself is the illustration of an unconditional love. Unconditional love does not wait for you to prove anything. Unconditional just flows towards you no matter how terrible you might have been.

God loved you that much even before you got saved, how much more now that you are a child of His kingdom. Stop evaluating God’s love for you based on your actions. Nothing you do will make Him love you more. Nothing you have done will make Him love you less. He loves you unconditionally.
