As a man or woman of God, even as you speak and declare deliverance, the people shout “Amen”, the painful part is that, many still believe the problems they came with, is still affecting them. They will not be happy until you lay hands on them. Numbers 11:29 But Moses replied, “Are you jealous for my sake? I wish that all the LORD’s people were prophets and that the LORD would put his Spirit upon them all!” There are people with potential yet have declared themselves worthless because of their circumstances .
People discuss God and the spiritual realm with limited knowledge and experience and most often to appear wise to others because they applause to them criticizing Christianity. Only dwell on your personal experience. 2 Corinthians 10:13 We will not boast about things done outside our area of authority. We will boast only about what has happened within the boundaries of the work God has given us, which includes our working with you.
Micah 6:8 No, O people, the LORD has told you what is good, and this is what he requires of you: to do what is right, to love mercy, and to walk humbly with your God.
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?”
Lord, open our spiritual eyes and our spiritual ears.
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.
Jesus expect each believer to grow to the level where he can teach others. Paul encourages us to be grounded and built in Christ. Colossians 2:6-7 As you therefore have received Christ Jesus the Lord, so walk in Him, rooted and built up in Him and established in the faith, as you have been taught, abounding in it with thanksgiving.
You can be blood brothers or blood sisters but be separated in the spirit. You can be married on paper but be separated spiritually. A person can be there in person but be absent.
Esau and Jacob were at war even in the mother’s womb.Genesis 25:23 And the LORD said to her: “Two nations are in your womb, Two peoples shall be separated from your body; One people shall be stronger than the other, And the older shall serve the younger.”
What must keep you, is spiritual significance of your union.
Zacchaeus had to come out of the flesh into the spirit for him to leave his money and seek God.
Luke 19:2-5 Now behold, there was a man named Zacchaeus who was a chief tax collector, and he was rich. And he sought to see who Jesus was, but could not because of the crowd, for he was of short stature. So he ran ahead and climbed up into a sycamore tree to see Him, for He was going to pass that way. And when Jesus came to the place, He looked up and saw him, and said to him, “Zacchaeus, make haste and come down, for today I must stay at your house.”
Psalm 119:18 Open my eyes, that I may see Wondrous things from Your law.
Everyday we pray but the answer comes and pass us by because we see with our physical eyes. Ask Jesus to open your spiritual eyes same as he opened the eyes of the blind man in Jericho.
Luke 18:41 saying, “What do you want Me to do for you?” He said, “Lord, that I may receive my sight.”
