THE WORD OF GOD 

KEY TEXT:Luke 8:5-8
 “A sower went out to sow his seed. And as he sowed, some fell along the path and was trampled underfoot, and the birds of the air devoured it. And some fell on the rock, and as it grew up, it withered away, because it had no moisture. And some fell among thorns, and the thorns grew up with it and choked it. And some fell into good soil and grew and yielded a hundredfold.” As he said these things, he called out, “He who has ears to hear, let him hear.”

In trying to explain about the kingdom of God, Jesus told the above parable to the multitude. Later he explained it’s meaning to his disciples since they couldn’t decipher it’s meaning. How do you take the Word of God?  

The Word of God is living and active.  It’s not just any ordinary word.  In it,  mysteries and secrets of the kingdom of God are revealed by the Holy Spirit.  It makes a simple person wiser. The devil knows this too well and is always ready to steal it from an unsuspecting or careless Christian.  He works hard to provide a climate that will choke it to die.  God’s plan for his word is to bring change – a long lasting one.  Hearing it is hearing from God.  As such we should treasure it and guard it. Thanks to the Holy Spirit who helps us to provide an enabling climate for it to grow to maturity. I find these declarations

 just too good to wish away any time I’m reading God’s word. 
Thank you father for your Word. 

You have chosen to speak to me through it. 

I believe and declare that it shall not rot,  wither or die away. 

The Spirit of God is providing an enabling environment for it to grow 

This Word shall change me and others around me. 

It shall accomplish God’s plan for me

It shall bear fruits: 30 fold,  60 fold even 100 fold

Through it I will understand the mysteries and secrets of God 

The Spirit of God shall hide it in me and will remind me always 

I choose to hide it in my heart so that I won’t sin against you 

I will be what it says I am

I will do what it says I can do

I believe this with all my heart. 

In Jesus name,  

Amen

PRAYER FOR HUMILITY 

Let the scripture speak. 

James 4:6 But he gives more grace. Therefore it says, “God opposes the proud, but gives grace to the humble.”
How bad it is for God to resist you in prayer or service.  Regardless of your position,  if you are walking in pride,  strive,  seeking more of early praise,  God will not listen to you.  He cannot share his glory with man.    Try the prayers below, with utmost sincerity :
That you may increase as I decrease


That you may receive glory in all I do


That you may help me not to think I’m standing on my own,  that you may hold me not to fall


That at the end of the day it shall be about you in me and us


That I may be a servant, not lord over others


That I may help others complete, better than myself


That I shall not be blinded by praise of men,  but that their praise to me shall be relocated to you


That I shall have a teachable spirit


That I shall recognise the beauty,  strength and contribution of others


That I shall not boast or pride over my accomplishments,  they are yours o Lord 


That I shall be ready and willing always to be guided by your Spirit


That I shall not look down upon others because of their seeming lack


I shall endeavour to make the church of Christ great, one


I praise your name o God because the good work you have began in my life you will accomplish in Christ Jesus

We are in the last days,  no question about this. We are living at a very challenging time in the body of Christ. Wickedness has increased tremendously. The church is slowly losing relevance as it has compromised. Many of God’s servants are walking defeated lives. Our children, families, governments,  courts, politics and economy are threatened. We are crossing fingers because we fear the worst will happen,  yet are doing nothing about it. We are in bondage and captivity,  in chains and darkness. We have fought and are now tired. We have given up or are giving up. 

This scenario can be compared with one that happened during prophet Habakkuk’s time.  There was idolatry, immorality,  injustice,  treachery, and general oppression to the people.  His heart was sick at what he experienced in his everyday life. 

When battles are at fever pitch, we need to move a notch higher and use better weaponry. We also need seasoned fighters.  Habakkuk sat down and it his memory rekindled God’s great happenings in the past.  Habakkuk 3 is a story reminiscing God’s great deeds in the past. Take note that God responded by doing battle in three places: the waters,  heavens and the land.  That is where battles are done even in our physical world. After reading carefully this I identify with its relevance to our generation and see the importance of crying out with habakkuk “..do it again lord in our generation”. for who is better equipped to fight for us than the lord of Hosts?  He says that the battle belongs to him. 

Let the watchmen and prayer warriors in our generation repent on behalf of the church,  then arise and make this cry: “O LORD our God,  rend the heavens and come down,  deliver us,  save us,  revive us for we are down,  restore us back to you and your purposes for us.” He will tear down the mountains,  gates, chains,  captivity and all wickedness released upon us.  Let us keenly read the verses below and pray them out until they are part of us,  let us celebrate as we receive by faith god’s judgement upon our enemies in spiritual places. 

Habakkuk 3:2-19 LORD, I have heard of your fame; I stand in awe of your deeds, LORD. Repeat them in our day, in our time make them known; in wrath remember mercy. God came from Teman, the Holy One from Mount Paran. His glory covered the heavens and his praise filled the earth. His splendor was like the sunrise; rays flashed from his hand, where his power was hidden. Plague went before him; pestilence followed his steps. He stood, and shook the earth; he looked, and made the nations tremble. The ancient mountains crumbled and the age-old hills collapsed— but he marches on forever. I saw the tents of Cushan in distress, the dwellings of Midian in anguish. Were you angry with the rivers, LORD? Was your wrath against the streams? Did you rage against the sea when you rode your horses and your chariots to victory? You uncovered your bow, you called for many arrows. You split the earth with rivers; the mountains saw you and writhed. Torrents of water swept by; the deep roared and lifted its waves on high. Sun and moon stood still in the heavens at the glint of your flying arrows, at the lightning of your flashing spear. In wrath you strode through the earth and in anger you threshed the nations. You came out to deliver your people, to save your anointed one. You crushed the leader of the land of wickedness, you stripped him from head to foot. With his own spear you pierced his head when his warriors stormed out to scatter us, gloating as though about to devour the wretched who were in hiding. You trampled the sea with your horses, churning the great waters. I heard and my heart pounded, my lips quivered at the sound; decay crept into my bones, and my legs trembled. Yet I will wait patiently for the day of calamity to come on the nation invading us. Though the fig tree does not bud and there are no grapes on the vines, though the olive crop fails and the fields produce no food, though there are no sheep in the pen and no cattle in the stalls, yet I will rejoice in the LORD, I will be joyful in God my Savior. The Sovereign LORD is my strength; he makes my feet like the feet of a deer, he enables me to tread on the heights.
