Your Current situation is necessary so you can know that there is God.

If David fought a normal person, the victory would not have been afforded the praises that it got.

1 Samuel 17:4 And a champion went out from the camp of the Philistines, named Goliath, from Gath, whose height was six cubits and a span.

When you are not in control of the current situation, you’ll panic when you think about the consequences.

John 11:11 These things He said, and after that He said to them, “Our friend Lazarus sleeps, but I go that I may wake him up.

Jesus waited for Lazarus to die before he came to raise him from the dead. If he did not die, people would not have know that He has resurrection power.

Deal with people at the level that they are in else you might not reach them.

God saw that it will be difficult for people to believe should he have tried to reconcile us with him in his spiritual being. Instead he came in an image we are familiar with, the flesh.

Romans 8:3 For what the law could not do in that it was weak through the flesh, God did by sending His own Son in the likeness of sinful flesh, on account of sin: He condemned sin in the flesh.

Sometimes you need to lower yourself to a level where people are for them to hear you and connect with you.

Jesus could have turned the water to juice but instead turned it to wine because that’s what the people identified with at the time. John 2:9 When the master of the feast had tasted the water that was made wine, and did not know where it came from (but the servants who had drawn the water knew), the master of the feast called the bridegroom.

You cannot speak to new believers the same way you deal with those who have been in Christ longer. Understand that people are not the same not that others cannot change, they need to be natured. Hebrews 5:12-14 For though by this time you ought to be teachers, you need someone to teach you again the first principles of the oracles of God; and you have come to need milk and not solid food. For everyone who partakes only of milk is unskilled in the word of righteousness, for he is a babe. But solid food belongs to those who are of full age, that is, those who by reason of use have their senses exercised to discern both good and evil.

Desire, prayer, and faith in God.

Mark 11:24 Therefore I say to you, whatever things you ask when you pray, believe that you receive them, and you will have them.

There are things that you do, there is a behavior or conduct that makes your desires realized. Wherever we go there is a qualifying criteria. Psalm 37:4 Delight yourself also in the LORD, And He shall give you the desires of your heart.

When we pray, we pray for things that are inspired by the spirit for us to have. We are predestined beings. My potion is know in the spirit. My faith can never be above His will for my life.

Romans 8:26 Likewise the Spirit also helps in our weaknesses. For we do not know what we should pray for as we ought, but the Spirit Himself makes intercession for us with groanings which cannot be uttered.

When something has been made real in your spiritual life by the intercession of the spirit, the prayer become effective because it’s coming from inside.

Many people are not failing because they are not capable but because they are not where God want them to be.

God’ will, God’s time and God’s presence is success. If you are in His will there’s no need to pray for blessings. In the right position, there will be provision.

Genesis 22:8 And Abraham said, “My son, God will provide for Himself the lamb for a burnt offering.” So the two of them went together.

Receive this prayer today.

Psalm 20:1-9 May the LORD answer you in the day of trouble; May the name of the God of Jacob defend you; [2] May He send you help from the sanctuary, And strengthen you out of Zion; [3] May He remember all your offerings, And accept your burnt sacrifice. Selah [4] May He grant you according to your heart’s desire, And fulfill all your purpose. [5] We will rejoice in your salvation, And in the name of our God we will set up our banners! May the LORD fulfill all your petitions. [6] Now I know that the LORD saves His anointed; He will answer him from His holy heaven With the saving strength of His right hand. [7] Some trust in chariots, and some in horses; But we will remember the name of the LORD our God. [8] They have bowed down and fallen; But we have risen and stand upright. [9] Save, LORD! May the King answer us when we call.

What makes a Christian vulnerable to spiritual attacks is prayer less life.

1 Thessalonians 5:17-18 pray without ceasing, in everything give thanks; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you. Prayer creates a wall around us which makes it impossible for the devil to attack. The devil is waiting for an opportune moment to deal with you. Any gap in prayer is enough.

Jesus warned Peter about the devil’s plan and that he must makes sure he does not find him weak. Luke 22:31-32 And the Lord said, “Simon, Simon! Indeed, Satan has asked for you, that he may sift you as wheat. But I have prayed for you, that your faith should not fail; and when you have returned to Me, strengthen your brethren.”

Signs and wonders

John 3:2 This man came to Jesus by night and said to Him, “Rabbi, we know that You are a teacher come from God; for no one can do these signs that You do unless God is with him.”

Ministry of Jesus was about repentance, healing and deliverance, sings and wonders. We are promised that if we believe in him , we will do as he did and even more.

John 14:12 “Most assuredly, I say to you, he who believes in Me, the works that I do he will do also; and greater works than these he will do, because I go to My Father.

If you receive Christ, he promised to send the Holy Spirit and the Holy Spirit will remind and teach us these things. The Holy Spirit cannot be present in a place and be idling.

John 14:26 But the Helper, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in My name, He will teach you all things, and bring to your remembrance all things that I said to you.

You cannot give what you do not have. For me to minister healing in your life, I must have the gift of healing. Spirit give life to spirit.

John 3:6 That which is born of the flesh is flesh, and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit.
