Psalm 107:29 He calms the storm, So that its waves are still.
Within all of us there is a storm. Some believe it will never end; but he who has faith in the heavens will weather any storm. Mr R Kelly
There are a lot of people moving around confessing their Christianity but to most, it’s outside and transformation has not reached their heart. Pray that you receive the Holy Spirit because that will make you a true Christian. The Samaritans accepted God’s message, they were baptized but something was still missing. Acts 8:16-17 The Holy Spirit had not yet come upon any of them, for they had only been baptized in the name of the Lord Jesus. Then Peter and John laid their hands upon these believers, and they received the Holy Spirit.
There must be something about their character that made Paul wonder if they receive the Holy Spirit. You cannot receive the Holy Spirit and reman the same. Acts 19:2 “Did you receive the Holy Spirit when you believed?” he asked them. “No,” they replied, “we haven’t even heard that there is a Holy Spirit.”
Numbers 12:6 Then He said, “Hear now My words: If there is a prophet among you, I, the LORD, make Myself known to him in a vision; I speak to him in a dream.Create an environment that is suitable for the Spirit to dwell in. The Bible warns us not to go to sleep with our anger.
It’s not that we won’t be offended. In our anger, we must look to God for healing and comfort. Ephesians 4:26 And “don’t sin by letting anger control you.” Don’t let the sun go down while you are still angry.
The status before sleep has a bearing on how you wake up and how you wake up has a bearing to your mood during the day. You can be single but be in a warpath alone. Most of the victories are won in the mind. Don’t be a slave to your mind, be its master.
Jeremiah 8:7 Even the stork that flies across the sky knows the time of her migration, as do the turtledove, the swallow, and the crane. They all return at the proper time each year. But not my people! They do not know the LORD’s laws. When Jesus started preaching, the first message was that people must repent, the door is always open for those who want to change. He is ready to hear your cry. Matthew 4:17 From that time Jesus began to preach and to say, “Repent, for the kingdom of heaven is at hand.”
The Lord knows that we cannot be perfect but expect us repent.
If there is harmony in churches and we believe in the works that Jesus did, why are we not experiencing the move of the Holy Spirit? Mark 16:17-18 These miraculous signs will accompany those who believe: They will cast out demons in my name, and they will speak in new languages. They will be able to handle snakes with safety, and if they drink anything poisonous, it won’t hurt them. They will be able to place their hands on the sick, and they will be healed.”
If all churches are following Christ, He promised his presence there. The Holy Spirit cannot be present in a place and be idle. Matthew 18:19-20 “Again I say to you that if two of you agree on earth concerning anything that they ask, it will be done for them by My Father in heaven. For where two or three are gathered together in My name, I am there in the midst of them.”
In the world, when one follows another person, they emulate their leader. Why are churches divided on what Jesus did?
Have faith in God, believe God.
Hebrews 4:12 For the word of God is living and powerful, and sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing even to the division of soul and spirit, and of joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.
Some ministers believes, praying for a person is about laying of hands only and nothing can be achieved by just uttering words and the same pastors asks that we pray for the country. How is our prayer changing and making an impact when we are not touching anything but standing in the gap and asking God to intervene. Ezekiel 37:3-4 And He said to me, “Son of man, can these bones live?” So I answered, “O Lord GOD, You know.” Again He said to me, “Prophesy to these bones, and say to them, ‘O dry bones, hear the word of the LORD! Ezekiel was not asked to lay hands but to speak and declare and it was so. As a Christian have faith to walk in the supernatural power of God.
Sometimes jealousy stands in the way, instead let the gifts work together for the house of God. Ephesians 4:11-13 Now these are the gifts Christ gave to the church: the apostles, the prophets, the evangelists, and the pastors and teachers. Their responsibility is to equip God’s people to do his work and build up the church, the body of Christ. This will continue until we all come to such unity in our faith and knowledge of God’s Son that we will be mature in the Lord, measuring up to the full and complete standard of Christ.
If everything within me can worship God, what can stop the Word from speaking to every part of me, how can my bones resist the power? Psalm 103:1 Bless the LORD, O my soul; And all that is within me, bless His holy name!
Luke 24:18 Then the one whose name was Cleopas answered and said to Him, “Are You the only stranger in Jerusalem, and have You not known the things which happened there in these days?”
