POSTURE (POSITIONING) FOR DIVINE DIRECTION – Dr Paul Enenche

Spread the love

WHEN THE NATIVE DOCTOR GIVES THE UNBELIEVER AN INSTRUCTION HE OBEYS.
WHEN THE PASTOR GIVES THE BELIEVER INSTRUCTION HE SAYS IT’S NOT THAT SERIOUS, AFTERALL THE PASTOR IS HIS AGE MATE.
TOO MUCH FOOD PRODUCES DULLNESS OF THE SENSES. FASTING IS HEALTHY.
GOD DOES NOT WASTE INSTRUCTION; GOD WILL NOT SPEAK TO PEOPLE WHO WILL NEGOTIATE, OVER-ANALYZE OR RATIONALIZE THE INSTRUCTION.
ABRAHAM WAS ALWAYS HEARING GOD BECAUSE WHENEVER GOD SPOKE, HE MOVED. WHY ARE WE NOT HEARING GOD IN OUR GENERATION?
WE ARE NOT HEARING GOD BECAUSE WE ARE SO SLUGGISH.
THOSE WHO MISS OUT ON THE VOICE OF INSTRUCTION FROM THEIR GOD ORDAINED TEACHERS CAN MISS OUT ON CORRECTION AND DIRECTION FROM HEAVEN.
THE MENTALITY OF MOST PEOPLE IS THAT, THEY DON’T WANT TO PASS THROUGH THE PROCESS BUT THEY WANT THE PRODUCT.
THE PERSON PREACHING AND MINISTERING DIDN’T GET IT LIKE THAT; HE GOT IT THROUGH RUGGED WORD, RUGGED WAITING ON THE LORD AND RUGGED RESEARCH IN SCRIPTURE.
IF YOU ARE LOOKING FOR DIRECTION, YOU MUST BE CLOSE TO THE VOICE OF YOUR GOD ORDAINED INSTRUCTORS.

Combined Service, Glory Dome.
Father, thank You for Your power today. The Bible says, in that day the burden shall be lifted from off your shoulder and the yoke from off your neck and the yoke shall be destroyed by the reason of the anointing.

  • Jehovah is breaking diverse yokes; yokes of sin, sickness, satanic curses, witchcraft powers, occultic manipulation – He is breaking the yokes now!
  • Everything that has affected your progress and your forward motion; you are meant to be going forward in life and something is arresting your progress, today, that satanic mystery is arrested!
  • Every “something” in your life, wherever they are located in your life that is an enemy of your destiny; any something that is fighting your legs, fighting your body, your business, your career and marriage; that something is uprooted right now!
    Father, thank You because You are the God who never fails, be glorified in Jesus precious name.
    Hallelujah!
    I welcome everyone here this morning in the precious name of Jesus Christ. Very, very quickly, we shall be coming into praying for marital and family breakthroughs at the end of the service but we shall proceed to deal with the subject we started with last Sunday;
    POSTURE AND POSITIONING FOR DIVINE DIRECTION (Part 2).
    It’s our month of divine direction and we are trusting the Lord to direct us appropriately, so that we don’t miss road and we don’t miss target.
    Habakkuk 2:1-4
    Our objective this morning is; Understanding the posture or the positioning for divine direction; how do we organize ourselves to receive from God and to hear from God?
    I want to by way of introduction in this second part say, that God is more interested in speaking than most people are interested in hearing. So the question is not whether God is speaking but whether man is hearing or listening. The question is not; is God speaking? The question must be; is man listening? I want you to take note of three facts:
    1). God is always speaking. He is not a talkative but He is always saying something (Matthew 4:4, Job 33:14-17). God is speaking over and over again but man is not hearing.
    2). Man must be deliberate and decisive to hear God (Psalm 85:8). The question is not whether God is speaking but whether “I will hear.”
    3). Man must maintain the correct posture or positioning or enabling environment to hear God.

To hear God, the posture must be correct, the positioning must be correct and the enabling environment must be right.
Habakkuk 2:1
There is a setting that makes it easy to hear God. We began looking at them from last Sunday and we are going to continue this Sunday. But for the sake of those who were not here last Sunday, I’ll like you to pick up that message and then I’ll just go over it briefly:
1). Be desperate to know the mind of God.
2). Possess the quality of meekness.
3). Commit your steps to the Lord.
4). Possess the attitude of enquiry, the attitude of one who ask questions.
5). Be charged with the Word of God.
6). Pray abundantly in the Spirit.
7). Possess the climate of joy and praise.

The voice of God travels in the vehicle of joy and praise. The voice of God flourishes in the climate of joy and praise.

When Elisha needed to hear God (2 Kings 3:15-16), he said, “bring me a minstrel and it came to pass, when the minstrel played, that the hand of the Lord came upon…”
Isaiah 30:29-30.

God does not cause His voice to be heard by everybody, God causes His voice to be heard by the joyful, the excited, the praiseful. That explains why many have not been able to hear God, because of permanent depression (Acts 13:1-2).
Joy and praise provoke the voice of God.
If you look at Moses, I can say that nobody heard God like Moses in the Old Testament. Moses was practically; other people heard the voice of God, Moses saw God face-to-face (Exodus 15:1, Deuteronomy 31:22, Deuteronomy 31:30, Deuteronomy 32:44). Moses was a man of praise, a man of songs and worship, so he heard God easily.
David was song and praise personified and also, he was divine direction personified (Psalm 119:164, 1 Samuel 30:6-8).
Paul the Apostle was a man of accurate direction and he wrote so much about joy and praise (Philippians 4:4, Ephesians 5:20, Romans 8:14).
Beloveth, to keep the voice of God clear in your ears, keep your joy alive. The presence of joy is the presence of His voice. Joy makes you to hear God.

On the other side, depression keeps the voice of God far.

As a matter of fact, the only voice a person will hear with depression is the voice of the devil; the voice of condemnation – “nobody likes you, kill yourself” – that’s satan speaking. “This world is not fair; people are very bad. Nobody to trust.” The only voice a person hears in depression is the voice of satan.

  • Today, I take authority over every demon of depression. Their yoke is broken off your life in the name of Jesus!
    Listen to this; speaking in tongues and singing praises to God, (“Lord, I’m about to make a decision, what are You saying”) that is far better than, “Lord, I want to hear You, what are You saying? You are talking to other people, You can’t talk to me, talk to me now” You can never quarrel God into speaking. You will never be able to quarrel God into talking. God can never be intimated by man. My mother used to say that a mother shouldn’t fear the face of her children. If you fear their face, you can’t correct them, you can’t tell them what they need to know. God the Creator can’t fear your face. You can never quarrel God into giving you direction. Please, bear that in mind; if it is His voice you want to hear, you shall have a song (Isaiah 30:29-30) and the Lord will cause His voice to be heard
    😎. Maintain the climate of expectancy. That is; “I am ready to hear You Lord” (Psalm 85:8, Habakkuk 2:1).

Like we said in our introduction; to hear God, you must be decisive and you must be deliberate. As a mortal man, when I am talking to somebody, I watch their attention. If it is not somebody to waste words with, I’ll summarize my speech. I’m talking to him, he is saying; “Excuse me Sir, let me just answer this call.” My discussion has been summarized; that is mortal man.

Young people who come and say, “I want you to be my Father in the Lord.” When we are talking, some of them look at your eyes as if, if you cough, they will receive. Before you can say one, he carries a pen and a paper.

That one, you’ll just download and speak beyond your preparation because this is a ground to release upon and God made us in His image. Anybody who is a writer knows that there is a connection between the thought and the pen.

By the time you put down a thought, you pull more thoughts. In the same way, expectation causes the release of revelation and direction. So, this attitude of expectancy is very important for two reasons:
a). God is speaking all the time (Matthew 4:4).
You went to bed in the night, expecting to receive something; for me, for a long time, I will keep a pen and a paper besides my bed. I am telling God; “in case You have anything to say, I am ready to write”. I’ll interrupt my sleep to record the song I received and then go back to sleep and then the next day, to develop more on it. I’ll interrupt my sleep to write a revelation I received and then continue and then look at it again and any time the students are ready, the teacher is ready.

b). God can use anything to speak per time (Jeremiah 18:1-6). Expectancy is needed because God can speak to you in your bathroom when you are having a shower, when you are sitting on the white throne; He can speak to you using any situation. Personally, I enjoy driving a lot. My wife and my children think there is no driver as good as myself when I’m driving them.

My wife said, if I’m driving, she can go to sleep and just sleep. But I stopped driving many years ago because at times, I am on the steering and revelation is coming, an insight is coming and I don’t have the time to write and then, by the time I reach where I’m going to, maybe it has escaped. That was the only reason why I got a driver.

So, I can be writing as it is flowing. God is speaking and I am writing (Proverbs 24:30-32).

  • In the name of Jesus, I prophesy the next time God speaks, you shall hear!
    9). Engage the weapon of fasting and prayer (Ezra 8:21, Isaiah 58:6, 8, Acts 13:1-2). Two things fasting will do:
    a). Fasting sharpens and sensitizes the spirit of man to divine signals and directions. You are able to pick up signals in the realm of the Spirit faster in the climate of a fast
    b). Fasting leads to the breaking forth of light out of scripture. In the period of the fast, it is possible to see more out of the scripture than any other time.
    The other day I heard God’s servant, our Father in the Lord, Bishop David Oyedepo talking about the God of the three-day intervention. Something he discovered that I also discovered without hearing it from him at any time. That for most interventions, you know Jonah was in the belly of the whale for three days; “Lord, I am looking for an answer within the next three days – desperate fast”. Now, answer in terms of direction, that happened for me when it was time to step into ministry and to identify when to get married; at strategic junctions of my life. That happened for him when he was pursuing the light on supernatural supplies, financial prosperity; what is the key? – Three days and Kenneth Hagin also talked about his three days schedule of waiting on the Lord; asking questions and God answered him.

How many of you know that too much food produces dullness of the senses? There is something in medicine called PPS.

The meaning for the layman is, sleepiness of eatfullness. Adam lost his inheritance by what he ate. Esau lost something by what he ate.

It is possible that there is something to gain when you avoid food, even for a season. But when you decide to sharpen your spirit with the fast, there are signals to pick. Two ways to do this:
i). The periodic, consecrational fast. That is, you are not looking for anything in particular, but maintain the regular consecrational fast, for the sake of baseline sensitivity.
ii. The deliberate fast for direction. When you are at a strategic junction of life, you deliberately declare a fast.

  • I prophesy upon you today, the discipline for spiritual exercise that will make you sensitive in life, the grace and discipline for that is released upon you in the name of Jesus!
    10). Engage the power of productive thought (meditation). When we begin to speak on the ways in which God leads, you will understand that God speaks on occasion through the thought (Matthew 1:19-20, Acts 10:19-20)
    I didn’t say worry ooo; God does not speak to worriers; I’m talking of thought – productive thoughts. Two things I want you to understand about the thought:
    i). God hears and answers thought. In the ears of God, thought is as loud as a voice (Isaiah 65:24, Ephesians 3:20). So, God is waiting for what we asking, He is also waiting for what we are thinking. The answer can come in the form of a miracle or direction.
    ii). When the thought is focused and delivered from distraction, direction arrives. Because many times, most people’s thoughts are like the football field in a thousand direction (Psalm 46:10).
    When the mind is like the football field; wandering endlessly and aimlessly in different directions, it is difficult to hear from God. There is something called “Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD)” very terrible condition that many parent have to deal.
  • I pray for any mother hear or parent here dealing with that kind of situation, the Lord delivers you completely in Jesus’ name!
  • I prophesy upon somebody here today, grace to discipline your thoughts, that grace is released upon you right now!
    11). Connect with the voice of your teachers (Pastors, mentors, tutors etc) (1 Samuel 3:8-10). Samuel was hearing the voice of God in Eli’s voice. God was using Eli’s voice to call Samuel. How many of you know when your mother calls you, you know that voice, other people call you Michael or Mike, she would call you U-Michael, then you know; this is mother calling me. You can’t miss it. So, Samuel was hearing the way Eli calls him with the voice of God (Isaiah 30:20-21).
    Two things are very important to note here:
    a). God uses the voice of His servants to speak to His people. That is, most people here said I saw the senior pastor in the night who said this or that or gave me such and such direction (Isaiah 30:21). God will use both the voice and the form of your pastor, teacher or mentor to speak to you.
    b). The Lord will pass through the instruction of your teacher to give you direction. That is not a revelation or hearing of a voice. I’ve seen those who said, I’m about to take a decision and I heard your voice; don’t do that. Beyond that, while the preaching is going on in the Church, God takes the instructions you are receiving and gives you directions, corrections and rebukes out of it.

Don’t disconnect from the voice of your teachers. Let me say it like this; Those who miss out on the voice of instruction from their God ordained teachers can miss out on correction and direction from Heaven.

There are those, all they come to church for is prophecy, lay hands on me and pray, minister to me. When you are talking about hearing the Word, it doesn’t bother them.

One day a man came to me and he said he had a problem. He wanted me to pray for him, so I wrote some passages of the scripture for him to go and read; “read through these passages and pray with them and then after some days, come back, I’ll pray for you.” He was the one who reported himself. He said, he was very angry. He thought when he came, I’ll just pray for him and cast out devil or something and I said he should go and read the Bible. He said on his way, he said: “I should read Ephesians, Philippians, I’ll read the whole Bible sef”.

He was vexing with me for trying to rescue his life. That is the mentality of most people; they don’t want to pass through the process but they want the product. The person preaching and ministering didn’t get it like that; he got it through rugged Word, rugged waiting on the Lord, rugged research in scripture.

The other day, I went into my library and picked out about twenty different books that are relevant to what I’m pursuing right now and I have started a journey of eating them. You see, there is nobody who is old enough to eat. Have you ever seen any old man in your village, all the eating he has done since his childhood should be enough.

You can’t come to the point where you’ll say you are not eating anymore. That is how it is spiritually and there are times when you lock up yourself with the messages that are related to the area of your question.

There are some fasting that the only thing you are doing in the fast is eating books, tapes and materials that are related, praying in the Spirit with expectation and then light comes. My wife and I read Bishop Oyedepo’s book, ‘Breaking Financial Hardship,’ far before we stepped into ministry and read the book of T. L Osborn and before we stepped in; we made up our minds that we are going to be distributors for God, we are not going to be beggars or borrowers.

We are not going to look at any member of the Church as a source of supply; that kept us and has helped us and there is not one person; we respect everybody but we saw long ago that God was our source. If you listen to Bishop Oyedepo enough, you will hear him speak about how he read Kenneth Copeland’s book and T. L Osborn’s book and all that they did for his life in hearing the voice of God and moving forward.

Beloveth, I want to encourage you; this is the time. If you are looking for direction, you must be close to the voice of your God ordained instructors.

I stepped practically into the realm of the supernatural, Smith Wigglesworth book (The Apostle of Faith), John G. Lakes (Adventures in God) and I made up my mind, I can’t live an ordinary life, I can’t live a routine mundane life by what I saw and what I experience there and it is speaking till tomorrow.

  • I prophesy to somebody here, something is changing in your life today!
    12). Be obedient to what you hear and know. You want God to speak to you, you want God to talk to you, you must be obedient to the One you already know and heard. Take note of these three things and don’t forget them;
    a). God does not waste instruction.
    b). God does not speak to the rebellious (Psalm 68:6).
    c). God will not speak to people who will negotiate, over-analyze or rationalize the instruction (Mark 4:24-25).
    d). You cannot access the spoken Word if you don’t value the written Word. It is not possible to hear what God is saying if you don’t care for what God has written.
    Somebody is expecting God to bless them; Father, bless my life, bless everything and yet, the spoken Word says, “You shall serve the Lord and He shall bless your bread and your water”. You have no value for service and you want God to speak to you on how He’s going to bless you. It doesn’t work that way.

Somebody is trusting God for financial openings, Heaven to open for resources to flow, the Bible says, “Bring all your tithe into the store house …” You don’t care about the tithe, you are even careless about your giving.

It is only during offering time you are struggling to find out what is in your pocket. Some of us calculate our month giving from the beginning of the month, the envelopes are ready till the end of the month for every service. You don’t care for that and yet you want God to talk to you about financial increase, it doesn’t work like this.

You cannot access the spoken Word if you don’t value the written Word. “Lord, I need Your power in my life and you want God to show you the secret of power and you are not witnessing to nobody, yet you want the power of God (Acts 1:8).
e). You cannot expect God to speak a fresh Word when you have not obeyed or acted on the last Word. Maybe God told you some times ago directly or indirectly; you are doing a lot of unnecessary expenses, cut it down. Cut down on your time wastage, phone usage, internet activities, movie watching that are aimless; cut them down. You haven’t done that and you are saying, “Lord, I can’t even hear God at all.” God said, “No! I gave instructions to you; you didn’t act on them.”
The commandments of God are not grievous. Don’t ever think that God will ask you to do something that will cause you loses. It is always profitable to hear the voice of God and to do the will of God and to fulfill the purpose of God. Why was Abraham hearing God all the time? Because when God spoke, he moved. Why was David always hearing God?

Because Whenever God spoke, he acted. Why are we not hearing God in our generation? We are so sluggish; we are so slack. Some people say; “Some unbelievers appear more successful than most Christians.” There are many reasons but I’ll tell you one;

When the native doctor tells the man; on your way out, don’t shake anybody’s hand today. He replied; “it is done. I won’t even greet anybody.” When God or pastor say it, the devil says, calm down. It’s not that serious. So the unbeliever billionaire who is dealing with realms in the occult, servicing diverse altars is flying as if there is no challenge and the Christian man who is meant to be a multi-billionaire is struggling because ordinary tithe, he can’t pay. Ordinary offering, he can’t pay; pastor is his age mate, no value for the anointing, no value for nothing. But it is changing today!

Father, thank You for the Word I just heard this morning in Jesus’ name.
