IMPOSSIBILITY IS NOTHING


“Whatever God demands from you, He himself will faithfully do it, in style”

You are a step away into fulfillment. That one step into good health, finding the right partner,discovering your purpose, fulfilling a career goal or living in total victory in all facets of life, has birth a deep longing in our empty hearts throughout human history, for answers. The quest for fulfillment and the pursuit of happiness by the masses has drowned many citizens of this world into the sea of frustration, stress, disappointment and the lack of fulfillment at every scale of their life. The reason being that, we have given our attention to the wrong prescriptions and formulas of the natural man. Tons and tons of believers have been hypnotized by the noise makers, to the neglect of the Godly principle of tapping into being. We are always caught up in doing instead of resting in the overflowing current of the quality life of God.

Are you in search for the next guru on TV to give you a formula or the token and canticle Prophet, who boasts of having the answers to take you into a blissful destination?  When we are at one with divine influence (grace), no matter the color of your skin, economic status, tribe or geographical location, you have the power to make it. In essence life becomes effortless. This sounds like laziness or a prescription for passivity? Friend, doing nothing is laziness…the life of rest is about surrendering and alignment to a whole new world of God’s unlimited grace through you, for an uncommon possibilities. You become a walking warehouse of the enabling power of God to stand before every challenge with deep conviction for supernatural change.

He who calls you is faithful, who also will do it. 1 Thess 5:24  

You will agree with me my friend, that sometimes we all become so overwhelmed with uncertainties which cast gloom over the future, and limits acceleration in our own callings and journeys. All kinds of thoughts begin to flood over the brain with a tsunami-like force; without breathing space to escape from the prison of one’s own thoughts. Your belly begins to bloat with regret, and the inner critics begin to talk you out of your purpose in life. These moments are always not pretty… you don’t feel the sense to keep holding on to the towel in your hand but to let it fizzled out into oblivion. When the odds are against you and the writings on the wall seems to guarantee a no way out; as a child of God, quitting is not an options.

Do you find yourself at the dead-end of life? Writing a suicidal note, going through a hard time getting a job or guiding a company to peak performance, feeling Google Image

defeated, bad report of the doctor, no sign of success in any area of your life or dealing with an addiction are all limitation hurdles one needs to overcome. There is nothing in the realm of the Kingdom of Christ, called dead ends!! Dead ends are the perception of a mind which has lost alignment with the truth of God’s enabling power, which is available for all who will believes in Him. Here is the secret for an exponential breakthrough my friend.. “every assignment in your life, if its God’s ordain… certainly have 110% of heavens backing, irrespective of what happens today or tomorrow”. What God demands from your life, (you can smile on this one) is what He will faithfully, carry out!! I say it again; He will faithfully bring it to pass.

Do I have to worry and be afraid, if God will do it? You do not have what it takes on your own power to navigate through untested terrains in life, to make things happen in your own terms and ways. The good news is that; “You can fulfill any life assignment or purpose which seem unreachable or impossible in any sense, as you learn to surrender through faith in the work-ability of God. God’s power swallows your weakness and questions with tangible supernatural solutions. The frustration in the life of most believers is as a result of trying too much. Most believers make it their own business to conjure some form of magic they have no ability to do to beautify God’s will. Self reliance is a serious cancer which has crept seriously into the Church of Jesus Christ over many centuries ago. Precious one, sink this glorious truth into your heart, and let it dominate your emotions, will and mind. You will ignite a brand new perspective in your spirit towards life and see God turn the impossible situation around, without any sweat. Jesus and the early Church were a model ofgoogle image this principle of trust. Paul states that clearly; “He who calls you is faithful, who also will do it… (1 Thes 5:24 NKJV)

If this truth still sounds like a doctrine of passiveness, then listen to what Jesus said in regards to the Fathers activity through Him. “Then Jesus answered and said to them, “Most assuredly, I say to you, the Son can do nothing of Himself, but what He sees the Father do; for whatever He does, the Son also does in like manner”.John 5:19 (NKJV) Jesus came to this earth to show us the dynamics of God. He never depended on His humanism in accomplishing the Fathers task. He humbled himself, (He tapped into the activity of  His Father) even to the point of death. At the cross, the episode was a demonstration of a life under complete obedience to the quality life of God to fulfill the very demand of heaven. Why was Jesus able to sustain physical pain and all the negative emotions He has to walk through? He was able to love because, He learned to plug into the wells of love through faith in His Father instead of the toxic vibration of the Pharisees and the Jewish community.

Jesus, unveils this powerful and profound principle which was hidden from man, after the original sin in the garden. This is the Christed principle of total surrender and connectedness to an ocean of grace, which causes one to bear much fruit, even if you find yourself in a dark hole; “I am the vine, you are the branches. He who abides in Me, and I in him, bears much fruit; for without Me you can do nothing”. “John 15:5 (NKJV)

Impossibility is absolutely nothing when we are plugged into Christ. In Him is life and through Him are we complete. Whatever your needs are…Jesus life is your sufficiency. alleluia!! Peace, joy, hope, love, and all the Christian virtues that shapes us to be considered as a victorious soldier of Christ is not a self effort or Photo Credit: Google imagediscipline act. Fruit bearing is the direct work of the Spirit of Christ in the life of the believer who sets His mind and affections on Christ, instead of following a certain form of legalistic rules or rituals. You can’t bear fruit without spirit rest.There has been many a time in my personal journeys, that I have felt it’s my own business and responsibility to make things work. This attitude sounds positive to our carnal minds on this side of eternity, but it has an underlying limitations of stress, worry, anxiety, disappointments, inadequacies, limitations, scarcity, shortsightedness etc. which so well plagues the falling man.

I have gone through emotional burnt out, failure mentality, fear and a host of other negative emotions. I saw the light of peace shining in my heart and impacting everything that I do in life for unusual turnaround, because I realized that my existence in life is by divine mandate, and the one who call me into design, will surely order my steps, if I learn to rely on Him totally day by day, as my source of everything. I don’t fret over anything; I chose to trust Him when even circumstances don’t make sense to my peanut mind. alleluia! Beloved, you can break any form of limitation in your life today, as you learn to take the yoke of the job from your neck by resting in His indwelling ability through you, to fulfill His plan effortlessly. You have no need to worry and be burdened about your assignment or the mountain before you. Trying is not the normal Christian life, and a model of the quality life of God for us, as believers. From A to Z, Christianity is a life of resting in God whiles He worked through us, effortlessly. There is calmness, humility and assurance in surrendering than human efforts and self centeredness.

Be still my friend!! To His covenant children at the banks of the Red Sea, who were so traumatized by the galloping horses and chariots of Pharaoh and his legions of soldiers, in pursuit for the dear lives of God’s chosen people en-route to the promised land. The last thing to have crossed the mind of  the Hebrews was Pharaoh coming for them after he has pronounce them as free people. Their lack of identity and knowledge of the ability of God brought them to the edge of their weakness. The rays of murmuring and panic was like a robe on the back of the great and the weak among the congregation. Heaven had to kiss the earth one more time to teach us the mode of photo credit: google imagesoperation of God, among His own. God spoke to Moses, the leader of the Hebrews and the entire congregation in pilgrim journey to the land flowing with milk and honey, whose heart were melting because of the Egyptians; “to be still and know that He is God” Nothing is impossible with God, when we are still. There is a fantastic truth in that simple phrase “be still”. Are you at rest in the overflowing favor of God or you are conscious of your own inability?

Friend read this verse aloud to your own hearing, repeatedly. It sum up our own distractions in our personal journeys when the odds are too high…

“Exodus 14:11-16 (NET) 11 and they said to Moses, “Is it because there are no graves in Egypt that you have taken us away to die in the desert? What in the world have you done to us by bringing us out of Egypt? 12 Isn’t this what we told you in Egypt, ‘Leave us alone so that we can serve the Egyptians, because it is better for us to serve the Egyptians than to die in the desert!’” 13 Moses said to the people, “Do not fear! Stand firm and see the salvation of the Lord that he will provide for you today; for the Egyptians that you see today you will never, ever see again. 14 The Lord will fight for you, and you can be still.” 15 The Lord said to Moses, “Why do you cry out to me? Tell the Israelites to move on. 16 And as for you, lift up your staff and extend your hand toward the sea and divide it, so that the Israelites may go through the middle of the sea on dry ground”

To stand firm is to work from the platform of the persuasion of God’s word which is the final authority. One can choose to build his house on the rock or on sinking grounds. Jesus (word) is the rock on our feet and the game changer on every situation. Spend time in God’s presence by meditating on the word to set you on alignment with the power of God to annihilate the cascading army of the wicked one. Beloved, you are a step away to a land flowing with milk and honey through surrendering to the provisions of His promise. Always remember; “He who calls you is faithful, who also will do it… (1 Thes 5:24 NKJV)

I DON’T NEED YOUR GOD, I NEED YOUR ANOINTING!


   Just as one cannot separate water from being wet, you cannot separate God from the anointing

Just as one cannot separate water from being wet, you cannot separate God from the anointing. What the Church call anointing is a reflection of the character of God in a Photo Credit: www.wildolive.co.uk person’s life. Anointing is not goose pimples, a cliché, emotionalism nor mechanical influence nor human technique.

ANOINTING IS GOD…God’s power, wisdom, love, creativity, knowledge, and all that God is, flowing through human vessels, for the glory of God. The power or the ability to bear lasting fruitfulness is in the enabling grace of Christ. That was what Paul meant when He said; “I can do all things through Christ(the anointed one and His anointing) who strengthens me. (Phil 4:13)

I don’t need your God, I need your anointing… is a saddening reflection of the heartbeat and a false quest of a generation, willing to excel in life outside the confines ophoto credit: google imagesf the living logos. I want to do well in my ministry through the power He gives but not interested in the source of the oil.

My anointing or the anointing of God upon my life, cannot be given to any entity, even my children. Don’t be in shock! Brace up for the truth which sets free…Here is the thing; I live on a borrowed life of God, called the quality life or the abundant life. This life is anchored on my intimate relationship with God (eternal life), through Jesus Christ. Chew on this; “The release of the anointing on one’s life, is on the basis of our relationship with Jesus, through faith”.

DESIRE You can have a burning desire in your heart for the anointing of God upon my life, (ain’t nothing wrong with that)…one unique thing I can do for an individual, is to awaken them to the consciousness of the incredible presence of God, already working in them. Against this background, nurture them to build on a relationship with God, to unleash their uniqueness is a very important part of the process. It is totally impossible to give your personal relationship with God to another, and if one can’t give his or her relationship with God to others; I don’t think you can give to an individual, your anointing. Any Spirit filled person, can surely unveil unto a believer what God isimagesSUN4KAOZ already doing in their life, by the guidance of the Holy Spirit, through prophecy, word of knowledge, teaching etc. and lay their hands on them to confirm His will in their life. At the end of the day…your anointing was not giving to you by the one who laid his hands on you. They were just a vital channel within God’s activity. This is very simple!

WHAT ABOUT TIMOTHY?
Paul didn’t give Timothy his gift or calling. He awakens Tim to what God was already doing in his life. Paul writes–1Timothy 4:14: “Do not neglect the gift that is in you, which was given to you by prophecy with the laying on of the hands of the leadership.” In other words, God spoke what he was doing in Timothy life to the Elders, and they approved of him into ministry by the laying of their hands.
Paul laying hands on Timothy was not with the intention to pass on a gift or power as it has become very common in some Christian circles. (People are running around for the next man of God in town for impartation, instead of looking up to the man above for His anointing)

2 Timothy 1:6-7 “Therefore I remind you to stir up the gift of God which is in you through the laying on of my hands. For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind.”

In other words Timothy should not succumb to the pressure from others because of his youth, but become conscious of the power, love, and sound mind which were already given to all who believe in Christ.  You already got it my friend. Don’t step outside of God for a short cut. Jesus is the way, the truth and the life.

DID TIMOTHY LEARN A GREAT DEAL FROM PAUL?
Yes, he did. When you walk with a man who reflects the character of God…his God will be your focus, and the wisdom of God in his life becomes your pursuit. (You can tap into practical common sense and supernatural principles from a man who has learned a lot from his walk with God, and what life experiences has taught them)

COPYCATS As a result of a desperate want of a generation for the “anointing”, from men on the frontline (Celebrated Pastors and Prophets, Music leaders etc.) in Photo Credit: smallbiztrends.comministry, there is a subtle trademark of deception in the body of Christ. At the end of almost every 30 minute segment of a Christian program on TV, by televangelist, something is always being sold as a point of contact for the transfer of the anointing. (I don’t have problem with things being sold on TV, but it has to be sold with the right motivation)  I have personally seen folks functioning like clouds without rain in ministry setting; they are empty barrels, a stench in the nose, a sounding brass without a clear sound of direction and purpose. They have ignored genuine relationship with Christ, and substituted God with techniques. When you lack an authentic relationship with Christ, you will not have the wisdom to act right. You can copy others by watching how they do stuff and be famous in what you do, but time will tell how that dead works, will be sustained.

Jesus must be the center of His Church and not man. I humbly plead with Church leaders to bring those who are desperate for the unction to function to the revelation of living Christ, who only can work in us both to will and to do of His good pleasure. We can’t let our egos take the place of Christ

Beloved, don’t develop the habit to copy or emulate some pace setters in society, through “special learning”, to give up your authentic self.  I am not a fan of fake it till you makes it. Our identity in God cannot be faked. We should cherish the originality of the graces that Christ gives. There are a lot of great and ordinary people I follow from far and near to draw inspiration, wisdom, counsel, creativity, leadership etc. but these unique people, are not my central focus in life. Christ is!

THE SUBTLE MECHANISM
Some people also believes, if you want to function in certain levels of the anointing, it’s not about prayer, holiness or a relationship. Just sow a special seed offering for a great man of God, and you will definitely walk in their anointing. Here is a thought to ponder on…who gives the anointing? God or Man or Special mediators! Can you buy it? Let scripture speak for itself; Acts 8 is an interesting picture of what is on the table today.  Simon the Sorcerer sees a unique manifestation of the anointing in Peters life, and he offered to pay for the grace bestowed on Peter that he can unleash such power to impact others.

Acts 8:19-20 “Give me this power also, that anyone on whom I lay hands may receive the Holy Spirit.”  Your money perish with you because imagesCAF2TDO1you thought the gift of God could be purchased with money.… Repent therefore of this your wickedness and pray God if perhaps the thought of your heart may be forgiven you. For I see that you are poisoned with bitterness and bound by iniquity (Acts 8.22-23)

GIVING There is nothing wrong in sowing money into the life of a great person, or a ministry for a worthy cause…which will probably give you favorable access into their life, to learn certain life principles and be activated in your heart to pursue God, who is not respecter of persons. Access into the lives of great people, should always challenge one to learn their secret walk with God, and not directly for the fruit of their life, with wrong motives. To Copy ones greatness as quick fix to deny process of growth, will not even help one to survive the test of time. Many have faded into oblivion like a 15 seconds commercial, whether it was ministry or business enterprise, because of lack of balance in relationship with God and the wisdom to manage what He gives.

YOU ARE UNIQUE IN YOUR OWN ANOINTING
Friend you carry the fullness of God in your born again spirit. You are living in a better covenant, where God resides in you permanently. You can only trust Him, for the seal and the guarantee of the spirit in your life, to be unleashed in the capacities of your calling. Whether you flip burgers in a restaurant, a waitress, cleaner, painter, entrepreneur, publisher, public speaker, an athlete, a pastor or government appointee; the anointing will cause you to excel. The anointing is not limited to the four walls of Photo Credit:shugsprisonblog.blogspot.com -a chapel. Corinthians reads ‘Now He who establishes us with you in Christ and has anointed us is God who has also sealed us and given us the Spirit in our hearts as a guarantee.’ We have been sealed with the Holy Spirit living inside us.

1 John 2.27: ‘These things I have written to you about those who try to deceive you. But the anointing which you have received from Him abides in you and you do not need that anyone teach you; but as the same anointing teaches you concerning all things and is true and is not a lie and just as it has taught you, you will abide in Him.’ The anointing who is the Holy Spirit is in us, it is He who guides us into the truth so we can glorify the Lord Jesus (John 1613-15). We are certainly not glorifying the Lord when we go to men to get the Holy Spirit; it is a lack of understanding and a lack of faith. God will give you deeper understanding of Himself. Be far from deception and walk by faith in the ability that God gives and nurture your daily relationship with Jesus, the anointed One.
