HOW DO YOU AMAZE JESUS IV.



Faith: Using what you have to get what you want.
That’s just my definition of faith from the above sub-title.
How do you use the little in your hands?

We discussed in the last post how the captain humbly told Jesus in verse 8b:‘but speak the word and my servant shall be healed’ - that was purely faith. Authority in humility!
The Centurion was a man under authority as rightly said in verse 9; He operated authority so he knew what authority was like. He said further: ‘I say to this man, Go and he goeth; and to another, Come and he cometh, and to my Servant Do this and he doeth it.

But I want to open our eyes to how he used what he had learnt or what he had to get what he wanted from Jesus.

The attitude of using what he had - Authority, to get what he wanted- the healing of his servant was through faith- ‘but speak the word only’.


How do you use what you have to get what you want?
What is in your hands?
What do you want from the Lord?
How do you reconcile what is in your hands and want you want from the Lord?
How often do you use your faith??

If it was to be this age that Jesus himself offered to come ‘speak the word and your servant be healed’ a lot of us won’t agree. We will only agree that He comes around, prays for the servant, touches him/her, bath and even feed the servant plus tell lots of mysterious things and visions to prove He’s Jesus. We forget most times little things count.

The scripture said ‘If ye have faith just like the mustard seed…….. You’ll tell the mountains to move into the seas; (Matthew 17:20 KJV).
Does it now mean that you do not even have faith all? I have prayed so much about this  and that  and it is not coming, I have asked of the least of stuffs  for my neighbour from the Lord but He’s not responded…….. Here lies the answer:

Faith- is using what you have to get what you want. How?
    (a)   Jesus Christ fed 5000 with 5 loaves of b read and 2 little fishes (Matthew 14:13-21)   
    (b)   Elijah and that Widow; the little oil in the jar paid the whole debt (II Kings 4:3-6)
    (c)    Moses used the Rod in his hand to part the Red sea (Exodus 14:16) and many more.
What I am saying is faith without works is dead (James 2:26 KJV).


You must learn the art of using what you have in your hands to pursue/get what you want through prayers.

 Faith is not that attitude that prays folding his/her hands and expecting God to do the whole drama - 
He’s not a magician, He’s God!

I should have stopped posting all of this write-up ever since January 04, 2016 but I will never allow that happen. In the absence of a PC, I blog from my mobile; limited in the things I can do mobile wise…. I keep on blogging in faith!

There is something you have been asking the Lord for that you and you alone have the response to.
Whatever is in your life is not for fun!
Some of us even like the Centurion have great authority in Christ Jesus, but we fail to use it to amaze the Lord. We now become beggars.
I have come to discover that anything in your life that you refuse to use will be taken away from you (Matthew 13:12, 14:25 KJV).
Remember the parable of the talents? Anything that is not of faith is sin. (Romans 14:23)
Use your faith; amaze Jesus with what’s in your hand. He’s a miracle working God!

Let us pray: As we come to the conclusion of the series; how do you amaze Jesus? I pray us all the grace to practise love, through prayers, humility and faith. By the Grace of God you’ll have no choice than to share a testimony with me soonest in Jesus name. Amen!



Remain blessed.

THE 7 DISPENSATIONS IN THE BIBLE

Dispensationalism is a method of interpreting history that divides God’s work and purposes toward mankind into different periods of time. Usually, there are seven dispensations identified, although some theologians believe there are nine. Others count as few as three or as many as thirty-seven dispensations. 

In this article, we will limit ourselves to the seven basic dispensations found in scripture.

THE MYSTERY OF HIS PRESENCE

Have you ever wondered why God will not honour the words of certain men and honour that of another?
Have you ever thought about something  like this or experienced this:
The Bible says .....You shall lay your hands upon the sick and they will recover(Mark 16:18b). You laid your hands and instead of a recovery, you found a discovery – that the man is not healed and the sickness/disease has back-fired. This can be painful......  until a young man comes and at the sound of his voice, the infirmity flees.
Has this ever bothered you?
Or that a man speaks into existence instantly what you have been begging God for with fasting and prayers.




I bring you a mystery today!

ARE YOU TRUE TO YOUR CALLING? | Pastor E.A Adeboye

There are many people in ministry today who are going off track because they are operating in areas wherein they were not called.  Some out of personal ambition, are operating in callings that are not theirs while others are innocently operating in the wrong callings out of concern.

Having a burden about something or seeing a need does not automatically translate to a calling!

“And if a man also strive for masteries, yet is he not crowned, except he strive lawfully.”                 2 Timothy 2:5 KJV
According to the above Bible verse, anyone who does things outside the will of the Master will be disqualified.

Everyone who God has called is scored by Him!

If what you are doing is outside God’s calling for your life, no matter how good you are in that calling or ministry, it is regarded as irrelevant.

Paul was greatly burdened by how the Jews were walking outside the will of God.

He kept preaching to them, yet they were persecuting him.

The greatest persecution he got were from the…
