Servant of all

servant.jpg

When men are competing to be at the top…

When all men are seeking to be served

And to Lord over all

Lord grant me grace to seek to be the least

To seek to be the servant of all

Mark 10:45  For even the Son of man came not to be ministered unto, but to minister, and to give his life a ransom for many.

Oh for a Servant Spirit

Humble and meek like you Lord

Grant this unto me Lord I pray.

Amen

 

 

Don’t Be Shy

…God doesn’t want us to be shy with his gifts, but bold and loving and sensible.

1 Tim 1:7 (Message)

When we became Christians did not just forgive our sins, but He gave us the wonderful gift of eternal life and the Holy Spirit.

And the…God’s various gifts are handed out everywhere; but they all originate in God’s Spirit. God’s various ministries are carried out everywhere; but they all originate in God’s Spirit. God’s various expressions of power are in action everywhere; but God himself is behind it all. Each person is given something to do that shows who God is: Everyone gets in on it, everyone benefits. All kinds of things are handed out by the Spirit, and to all kinds of people! The variety is wonderful:

wise counsel

clear understanding

simple trust

healing the sick

miraculous acts

proclamation

distinguishing between spirits

tongues

interpretation of tongues”.

Each person is given something to do… unfortunately some of us are not doing anything with our gifts.

And the reason mostly is that we are shy!

‘my gift is not good enough we say’

‘I am afraid it might not work’

‘I don’t know how to do it’

‘What if I tried and it failed’

‘what if they don’t listen’

Timothy, would have been in such position. Shy to express the gifts of God in Him. Paul His spiritual father encouraged him not to be shy but to be bold.

I am using the same words to encourage you also. Don’t be shy but be bold!

I will never forget the first time I was asked to preach. I was so afraid and timid. I was shy and afraid what it will turn out.

But I took the courage. I stepped out and preached.

Now, 15 years after, more people have are being blessed by my ministration.

So my friend, Step out there, begin that thing, write that book, speak that word, do what ever you feel led to do, do what you have to do. You don’t know how many souls God has destined that you will bless.

And be sure that God will be right behind you as you step out in faith, and in the power of His Spirit.

“…In the same way I was with Moses, I’ll be with you. I won’t give up on you; I won’t leave you. Strength! Courage!”

 

 

Behold, I make all things new

All things new.jpg

We had the quarterly Prayers and fasting in Church today.

It was such a refreshing time in the Presence of the Lord.

Prayer Direction and Burden

And he that sat upon the throne said, Behold, I make all things new. And he said unto me, Write: for these words are true and faithful.

And he said unto me, It is done. I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end. I will give unto him that is athirst of the fountain of the water of life freely.

He that overcometh shall inherit all things; and I will be his God, and he shall be my son.  Revelation 21:5-7King James Version (KJV)

When we began the year the Lord gave us this word. And in the quarter that preceded we prayed to experience newness of life in all areas of our lives according to the promise of God.

What is the Newness we seek?

The Newness we seek is;

  • To walk in Newness of life and Revival
  • To walk in the will of God
  • To experience the New creation Realities
  • To experience newness in our marriages
  • To enjoy the rich promises of God concerning us in scriptures
  • To have our territories enlarged
  • To experience God, His grace, blessing, power and wonders in a way we have never experienced before
  • To experience a change in our current situation
  • To experience a personal change or visitation in every area of our lives

A promise that Cannot fail

We saw that this promise cannot fail as it is of Him who sits on the throne… They are faithful and true.

Nothing can stop Him from fulfilling His promises in our lives not the whole hordes of hell combined.

For He is the God of all flesh nothing is too difficult for Him.

Faith to obtain the Promises

We saw that the only thing that could hinder God rich promises form being fulfilled in our lives is our selves. Our doubts, fears and unbelief etc.

We prayed severally to the Lord and asked for the Spirit of faith… We prayed we believe, Lord help thou our unbelief.

Theme for second Quarter (Q2)- Breaking Forth on all Sides

we read Psalm 18..

We saw that sometimes there things, strongholds that encamp us that seek to prevent us from entering into our newness.

In the quarter therefore our focus will be to pray that we will breakthrough this obstacles and stronghold into our Newness.

And herein lies the secret to breakthrough

‘I will call upon the Lord, who is worthy to be praised: so shall I be saved from mine enemies.

The sorrows of death compassed me, and the floods of ungodly men made me afraid.

The sorrows of hell compassed me about: the snares of death prevented me.

In my distress I called upon the Lord, and cried unto my God: he heard my voice out of his temple, and my cry came before him, even into his ears.

In this quarter we will pray like David did and God will answer us.

Jabez prayed also for such breakthrough and enlargement.. 1 Chron 4:9-10

And Jabez was more honourable than his brethren: and his mother called his name Jabez, saying, Because I bare him with sorrow.

10 And Jabez called on the God of Israel, saying, Oh that thou wouldest bless me indeed, and enlarge my coast, and that thine hand might be with me, and that thou wouldest keep me from evil, that it may not grieve me! And God granted him that which he requested.

God will grant our request also… this quarter we will begin to experience our breakthrough.

Putting Faith to Action

As our expression of faith we agreed to do three things

  1. Write out our prayer request/goals, things we are believing God to do for us
  2. Pray the Prayer of Jabez and for increase and multiplication in every area of our lives daily.
  3. To be careful to write down the answers to the prayers as God answer us

We are trusting God for abundance of testimonies as we gather next quarter.

We prayed for our marriages, families and homes… We asked God for every member of the family that we will experience this newness.

:  23/02/2017, 8:38 AM – N H Buba: The Role of the members of the Holy Trinity in creation and redemption

23/02/2017, 8:39 AM – N H Buba:  Gen 1:26, 2 Cor 13:14, 1 Cor 12:4-11, John 3:16, John 14: 16, 26, Rom. 8:14-30

Discuss the Role of each member of the Holy Trinity in Creation, redemption and in achieving all the purpose of God? What is the main purpose of God today and how is the Holy Spirit working to achieve it.

23/02/2017, 8:40 AM – N H Buba: Please let’s have our contribution running through the day please

23/02/2017, 8:46 AM – ALEX GE: We understand sir. No wahala.

23/02/2017, 11:11 AM – Itiza: In creation, both willed in unison: Let “US” make ma

Secondly, The Father spoke The Word and The Spirit went out to call into existence those things that were not as though they were. All three members participated in bringing about creation.

23/02/2017, 11:11 AM – Itiza: *man

23/02/2017, 11:17 AM – Itiza: In redemption, The Father SENT The Son to die as a penalty/propitiation for our sins. Now The Spirit convicts men of sin and righteousness and judgment and grants the gift of faith in the hearts of those who hear the preached Word. The Spirit also bears witness in our hearts that we are children of God.

23/02/2017, 11:21 AM – Itiza: The main the purpose of God in the world today is the salvation of ALL men. He desires that none should perish but that all should come to salvation through Jesus. ALL scripture is intended to bring men to the knowledge of The Truth, who is Jesus. Selwyn Hughes once said ALL roads in the UK, no matter how remote, lead to London, the capital. In the same way, all scripture leads to Jesus. The Holy Spirit works to make that possible.

23/02/2017, 11:22 AM – Itiza: The revelation of Jesus and the salvation he offers is the primal work of the God-Head in the world now

23/02/2017, 11:23 AM – Itiza: Excellent summation

23/02/2017, 11:28 AM – ‪+234 814 167 4457: God planned redemption, Jesus carried out redemption, the holy spirit convicts of our sins

23/02/2017, 11:31 AM – Itiza: Rhema

23/02/2017, 11:32 AM – Itiza: Even what we refer to as God is actually The Three.

23/02/2017, 2:36 PM – Mrs Dangut: God the Father planned the creation, the Word(Jesus) executed the plan(Col.1:16)and the Holy Spirit completed the plan by bringing about order in the formless earth.

In redemption, the Father was the designer (1Tim 1:9), Jesus carried out the plan (by being the sacrifice) in total obedience to the will of the Father, even when it meant that He had to die! And the Holy Spirit transforms the hearts of all who receive salvation.

The Unison was extended to coming to build the abode in us…..  If anyone love me, he will keep my Word. Then my Father will love him, and we will go to him and make our 🏡 within him. John 14: 23.
