TAKE HEART

Tb Joshua Ministries,The SCOAN, Emmanuel TV

Are you worried about something? Is there a burden upon your spirit? As long as you are in this world there will be things poking you; there will be things disappointing you.

When we are troubled, we cannot be sensitive to the Spirit of God. You need a free spirit to pray. You need a free spirit to hear from God. You cannot hear from God when your spirit is troubled. If you pray at such times, you are talking to yourself. Therefore, ask God for a free spirit. Meditation reveals the burden in our spirit. Ask the Lord Jesus, “Take more of me; give me more of You”. When you are meditating this, you will find joy. It comes naturally; it comes spontaneously. Meditation in God’s Word is a visit with Him.

John 16:33 – “I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world.”

“In this world, there will be trouble. Cheer up! I have overcome.” This is why Jesus prayed, “I pray your faith will not fail”. This means there will be trouble that will tempt your faith but as a believer, God is aware of what you are going through. It has been prophesied that you will go through them but as one of His followers, it will not impair you but improve you if you allow it to draw you closer to Him.

THE SERMON OF YOUR LIFE

Tb Joshua Ministries,The SCOAN,Emmanuel TV

“When they saw the courage of Peter and John and realized that they were unschooled, ordinary men, they were astonished and they took note that these men had been with Jesus” (Acts 4:13)

When people look at your life, what do they take note of? Is it your appearance, your education, your talent or your inner virtue? Is it the colour of your skin or the content of your character? As a believer in Jesus Christ, no matter your situation, the way you react, the way you handle it matters a lot because the world is watching you. Among them are your friends, your relations, and those who do not share the same faith with you. They are watching to see the outcome of your faith.

Remember your life preaches a louder sermon than your mouth. Just like Peter and John who were unschooled, ordinary men, by the way you live your life, let people take note that you have been with the Healer, the Redeemer, the Comforter, the Deliverer – the name above all names – Jesus Christ!

JOY BREAKS EVERY BARRIER

Do you compare yourself with others and measure yourself by yourself? Remember, when you are not content and spend much of your time thinking about what you do not have, you may be slipping into unhealthy doubt that can lead you away from God to scepticism, cynicism, then hard-heartedness. These are the walls that stand as barriers between you and the Spirit of the Father.

The wall of Jericho had stopped the Israelites from entering the land whereas Jericho was God’s promise to the Israelites (Joshua 6:4-5). Nevertheless, faith joyfully confesses its victory. As the Israelites joyfully shouted their victory, the wall of Jericho fell. What is the wall in your life that stops you from receiving from God?

Joy is your conquering power (Nehemiah 8:10). “This is the day the LORD has made. We will rejoice and be glad in it” (Psalm 118:24). With this joy, break every wall of unhappiness, envy, jealousy, discontentment, offence and pain of the past that stands between you and the Spirit of the Father, in Jesus’ name. As that wall is broken in your life, experience the Bible come alive and the fulfilment of God’s promises.

SON OF DAVID, HAVE MERCY ON ME!

The age of miracles has not passed; the Miracle Worker is still alive. The bank of miracles is in Heaven. “However, as it is written: ‘What no eye has seen, what no ear has heard, and what no human mind has conceived” — the things God has prepared for those who love him’ ”(1 Corinthians 2:9). Therefore, let us not limit God in our prayer because He is rich beyond our dreams.

Knowing quite well how undeserving he was, blind Bartimaeus cried out, “Son of David, have mercy on me!” Brethren, all of us would not merit His mercy because our righteousness is like filthy rags before God. We are not healed, blessed and delivered because of the works of righteousness we have done (Ephesians 2:8-9) but in mercy God has called us and healed, delivered and saved us. All we need is God’s mercy and favour. Blind Bartimaeus prayed, “Son of David, have mercy on me” and he testified that God restored his sight. In mercy, you are not excluded.

“Son of David, have mercy on me. Let Your mercy and favour speak for me, in Jesus’ name!” If you mean it, this can be a soul-saving and life-changing prayer. As you say this anointed prayer with all your heart without ceasing, begin to feel the presence of God restoring your testimony – healing, blessing and setting you free and you shall share your testimony to the glory of God, in Jesus’ name!
