HOW TO OVERCOME SCOFFERS


Be careful you don’t consume the words of the negative soul. You will become his expectations, loosing your fire in the end. There are a people without the spirit of truth in their hearts but a venom of the mamba on their lips. Of such men, the Lord shall preserve your soul from their attacks

I SEEK GLORY IN YOUR PAIN & POTENTIAL


Let's be vulnerable together in the presence of the lord. He will abundantly restore us.

A KNOCK

There is a knock on the doors of the Lord beckoning on Him to come through for a friend at the edge of death. This yearning of Martha and Mary must be the cry of our generation. Something on the inside of us must be set loose in the presence of the Lord for radical justice on our behalf. It is time we give up trying and accept it, that it is not in us to prevail by our strength but the battle is the Lord’s.

Be vulnerable in the presence of the Lord. Lazarus is sick, Sisters went loose, not to seek the help of men but the help of the Lord. Scripture records;

“The sisters therefore sent to him, saying, “Lord, behold, he for whom you have great affection is sick.” But when Yeshua heard it, he said, “This sickness is not to death, but for the glory of God, that God’s Son may be glorified by it.” John 11:3-4 WMBBE

Could my Lord find glory in my pain? Is the kingdom of God so ambitious to step into the space of my disregarded, broken and empty vessel, to mend it and fill it with a purpose that aligns with His glory and purpose, so much that there wouldn’t be any trace of defects if I surrender these hidden scars of my soul to the Lord?


There is absolutely nothing in this world, whether broken or standing that God can not express Himself through if it is surrendered to Him. Do with it whatever you want to! This must be our heart cry

Earthen Vessel

We are earthen vessels. Some are in beautiful shapes and contains uncommon potentials yet the content of the vessel only brings glory to the bearer of it, not to God. Some also are broken, bruised, battered, bloodied and leaking out of any good things that enter into their space and yet they are unwilling to surrender their wasted vessel unto the Lord for Him to repair, restore, refill and express His glory and power through it.

You realize that both vessels live for themselves, in pain and potential. God is not invited to partake in what He has wonderfully created. These vessels live not for the glory of God but for pride and pity. One lives for himself though he is endowed with so much and the other also lives for himself though he can’t fix the chaos within. He has wounds and scars yet he is not willing to surrender them to the master physician because he is unaware that, it is in Gods nature to glorify himself in the beggarly elements of life when it is willingly surrendered to Him.


1 Corinthians 1:26-29 
26 For ye see your calling, brethren, how that not many wise men after the flesh, not many mighty, not many noble, are called: 27 But God hath chosen the foolish things of the world to confound the wise; and God hath chosen the weak things of the world to confound the things which are mighty; 28 And base things of the world, and things which are despised, hath God chosen, yea, and things which are not, to bring to nought things that are: 29 That no flesh should glory in his presence

Come, O’ Lord

Martha and Mary knew something about Jesus that most of us in the church are unaware of. This family has walked with Jesus and knew too well that He has the power to heal, including the sickness that had gripped their brother, Lazarus. They weren’t ashamed to be vulnerable to the master of their pressing need. Humbly, they beckoned on Him to come into their hopeless world.

Let Jesus words from our reference scripture set you loose today to live in the consciousness of freedom, that whether in pain or power, God desires to find glory in us.


“But when Yeshua heard it, he said, “This sickness is not to death, but for the glory of God, that God’s Son may be glorified by it.”John 11:4 WMBBE

Our God will not disregard our invitation when we humbly call on Him. It may seem like He had delayed sometimes but we should be steadfast and hold on to Him. He seeks glory in your pain and strength. He will not abandon. He will pardon. He will not cast us away forever. He will rebuild the ancient ruins for His glory. Oh, glory hallelujah, come O’ Lord


Prayer

Dear, Father I believe in You as a very present help. Today, I recognise your presence in me, altering the broken places of my soul, spirit and body for your glory. I surrender my potentials and opportunities. Use it for your glory, Jesus.

Father, It’s all about you — so take this pain, weakness, sins, and addictions and bring something out of it; rest for my soul and glory for Your kingdom. Take over, Spirit of Christ, and restore me to the original purpose of the Father; living for His glory all the days of my life. In Jesus name I have prayed. Amen!

Morning Prayer


Hold my gaze into your gaze, lover of my soul. Don’t slip away. Stay!

Eternal Father and lover of my soul,

Keep me awake in thee as I press daily

To Drink from the Wells of Your Salvation

Let me not wander away from the unveiling

And mingling in Your light, after this prayer is

Poured — strolling back into the illusions of

This mundane existence


Dear, Father, today — (Mon. Dec 1, 2020)

Clothe me with the gift of Your presence,

Permeate my thoughts with eternity,

Keeping me in perfect synergy with You

Hold my gaze into Your gaze

I desire nothing but to continue to

Behold Your face, until I am drowned

In the oceans of Your mercies and power


You are beautiful and generous towards me

You are merciful and devoted to the broken

May Your beauty becomes my obsession and

Let Your generosity, mercy, and devotion finds tue

Expression in me as I yield my life to Yours


Blessed Father,

You have sustained the universe by

Your word since creation — you are able to keep this fragile soul

By the same word, in perfect purity; blameless and holy

I pray thee, may the gift of your presence

Like a gentle stream, flow within the

Interior chambers of this weak temple

And wash away my fears and doubts


Abba, don’t slip away from my soul’s view

Like a bird on migration

Stay — Walking between my heart and soul,

Moment by moment


Guide me into the corridors of the Fathers will, Oh gentle Spirit of the presence

It is not in my ability to find my way into His

Perfect will and blueprints, So direct my steps;

a lost sheep, and let me find

greener pastures in His breath


Oh, Shepherd friend, lead me today,

To where my life will be fruitful to You,

I know my heart will find true satisfaction

In Your satisfaction

Through Jesus Christ my salvation. Amen.

The glory of the Lord finds true expression in vessels purged and sanctified from self. Without dying to self it is hard for the government of Christ to establish the will of heaven on earth. One must die to his own will in order to be alive to the will of the Father.

“And Moses said, I beseech You, show me Your glory.”Exodus 33:18 AMPC

Dear, Father

Please, show us your glory

We ask that you will rout us in your effulging nature and curriculum for our ordination

So that we do not get lost in our limited modules, trying to fulfil Kingdom enterprise

Take off the blindness from our eyes, and the dullness in our hearts hindering us from accessing your possibilities

Please, Lord

stir our hearts from the numbness of sin and religion and draw us into your love. We want to see you just as you are; nothing missing

We want to behold your glory. We want eternity to become our hallmark. How can we be attractive to the world of sin if all we boast ourselves in is the perishable treasures of the mundane?

Oh, sweet Spirit of the Father

Brood over us: awaken us from the corrupt administration of Babel which has it’s throne in our hearts

We have sold our souls to self, and our master is pride. Let Christ be glorified In our hearts, as it is in heaven. We want to be slain in the will of the Father. Yes, we want you

For we are caught in sensual enslavement. We are meddling in the economy of self, neglecting our place in eternal purpose. The glory has departed from our consciousness of life. When we see you our souls will be free from illusions, and our hearts will burn with unflinching desire to dwell in your presence forever; mirroring your essence

How can we make an eternal mark in the systems of the world that governs the hearts of men into perdition? How are we going to influence the world with your kingdom if your kingdom does not find residency in our lives?

Forgive us,

For the total neglect on our part, neglecting the beckonings of heaven on our hearts to sacrifice our temporal pleasures; a price for your glory to find it’s full expression in our lives.

Forgive us for substituting gold with brass. Forgive us for faking your glory, both within and without your church

I plead on thy mercies, dear Father

That you will raise men and women in the stature of Moses, who will introduce your sons and daughters to a realm in you that satisfies the inner hunger and thirst of the saints

Show us the path of illumination and insight to able to tap into the reality of who you are. We don’t want to behave like we have it all figured out with our religious minds.

If we say we have figured the secret path to Your glory then we are liars. So show us, oh God. You are not a God that hide yourself from those who hunger for you from a sincere place

We need you. We want you. All of you. Nothing missing.

Dear Father,

Thank you for a fresh outpour of your glory upon the body of Christ, for the sake of kingdom advancement and dominion. In Jesus name.

Amen

Amos 6:1


My soul grieves for a game of soccer. Why am I at ease at the game of sin and injustice?

There is a place within the soul where mortals see what many cannot see, and they press on in the presence of the immortal one, every day, full of grieve and compassion, that He will light up a candle in that darkness and take away pain

Why am I at ease in Zion?

Why my soul

Why do you worry about a game of soccer and you are at ease, drinking and giving in of marriage

Like the days of Noah

There is a place I want to live

Where the mundane will not be inside my backpack

Help me O’ Lord

To die to the pulling of this world

To a world which is not tied up to my eternal purpose

I want to die so you can live.
