DOING WHAT GOD COMMANDS AT ALL TIMES IS WHAT CHANGES OUR LEVELS SUPERNATURALLY.
THOSE WHO REFUSE TO ACCEPT RESPONSIBILITY END UP AS LIABILITIES.
WE MUST CONTINUE TO FIGHT SPIRITUALLY ON OUR KNEES FOR SOULS TO BE SAVED ACROSS OUR HARVEST FIELD.
OUR HARVEST FIELD INCLUDES EVERY PLACE THE SOLES OF OUR FEET HAS EVER AND SHALL EVER TREAD UPON: YOUR NEIGHBOURHOOD, WORKPLACE, VILLAGE, WHERE YOU BUY AND SELL, WHERE YOUR CUSTOMERS ARE.
-Pastor (Mrs) Faith Oyedepo at CHoP
Father, we have come to You this morning, thanking You for all these amazing testimonies. You are the Doer, accept our thanksgiving. Thank You for answered prayers, personally, corporately. Take all the glory.
This Morning, Lord, our hearts are opened. All the people came unto Him early in the morning, for to hear Him, the Bible says; in the same vein, we have come this morning to hear You: Speak to us, change our story, move us forward and establish Your will in our lives.
Take all the glory, in Jesus mighty name we have prayed.
All through this week, in our Covenant Hour of Prayer, the subject we are looking at is captioned:
KINGDOM ADVANCEMENT PRAYER IS EVERY BELIEVER’S RESPONSIBILITY
Let’s be reminded this morning first that life is all about responsibility.
Say with me, “responsibility.” Everyone born into this world is born into responsibility. That is why those who refuse to accept responsibility end up as liabilities.
-None of us will end up as liabilities
It is the same thing in the Kingdom of God, everyone that is born again, is born to accept certain spiritual responsibility. One of such spiritual responsibilities that we are expected to accept as Christians is the responsibility of praying Kingdom advancement prayers.
Those who accept and engage in this Kingdom responsibility end up great in the Kingdom.
-You shall be great!!
WHAT IS KINGDOM ADVANCEMENT PRAYER?
Simple, we have heard defined over and again: it is praying for the progress, for the promotion of the Kingdom of God here on earth, beginning with your local assembly.
What a joy, we have this great opportunity on a platter of gold for us, especially as we engage in these 21 days prayer and fasting this year.
-As you and I engage in this responsibility, God’s glorious future for us shall be practically delivered in Jesus name.
All through scriptures and again in our contemporary lives, we have several examples of people who engaged in advancing the Kingdom of God and they ended up great.
One of such examples we want to look at this morning briefly is the example of Daniel.
Daniel in the Bible: The Prime Minister of Babylon was a servant of God that prayed 3 times a day.
How many times? 3 times a day.
The Bible makes that very clear to us – Daniel 6:10
It was his lifestyle: praying 3 times every day and yet he was a Prime Minister. Busy man, highly placed in his days. Relevant to the government of the day, yet he had time to pray 3 times a day.
-Daniel made it, you and I will make it.
-Daniel made it, your own testimony shall be stronger.
But the question is:
WHAT ARE WE TO PRAY?
We must continue to pray for souls to continue to be saved across our harvest field.
“Where is my harvest field?” Somebody may ask. The Bible makes that very clear, Deuteronomy chapter 11 verse 24
Deuteronomy 11:24 – “Every place whereon the soles of your feet shall tread shall be yours.”
Where is my harvest field? Every place where the soles of your feet has ever and will ever tread upon.
That includes your neighbourhood, your workplace, your village, where you buy and sell, where your customers are.
Every place where the soles of your feet has ever and shall ever tread.
-None of us will disappoint destiny in Jesus’ name
1. He will reprove the world of sin
2. Of righteousness
3. Of judgment
“He will reprove the world of sin”: so we have a responsibility to pray and to continue to pray for souls to be saved across our harvest field.
The heart of everyone is in God’s hand and it is turn-able, but our prayers are required to make it come to pass.
-There shall be many souls attached to your name in the Kingdom of God.
However, we must understand that we have a responsibility to put up a fight. Of course, we all know this is not a physical fight this time.
It is a spiritual one, fighting on our knees in prayers.
Put up a fight to disarm the enemy and release his captives for salvation. We have a responsibility to put up a fight.
The stronger one that overpowers the strong man is the Jesus on our inside and as we engage on the altar of prayer continuously, the strong man in person of the enemy, the devil shall completely be disarmed and his goods shall be delivered, his captives shall be set free, in Jesus name.
Therefore, as we engage on the altar of prayers to see souls saved, let’s believe God and look up to Him for lives to be transformed.
Remember the testimonies we heard this morning:
– 21 days prayer and fasting: barrenness destroyed
– 21 days prayer and fasting: business began to boom.
-Wherever you might be experiencing stagnation, in any department of your life, as you engage and continue to engage from this moment forward, the God of breakthrough will step into your situation.
Please be reminded that doing what God commands at ALL times will continue to change our levels supernaturally.
How often? At all times.
Only during the 21 days prayer and fasting? At all times
-This season, someone’s level will change and not only now, it will continue to change for the better.
“Thy one pound has gained 10.” Then He said, “take authority over 10 cities” – Luke 19:16-17
-God will be handing over the key of authority to some persons. You will be among them.
Prayers: Receive grace to engage and to continue to engage on the altar of prayer, to see souls saved, to begin to disarm the enemy and release his captives even in the stronger dimension, beginning from this moment.
Receive that grace right now.
