CHRISTIANITY IS MORE THAN A RELIGION

Christianity is living out that transcendent life of Christ. You have the nature of God in your spirit. You have become the expression and effulgence of His glory. The Christian is born of God; he is the Godman which is the mankind of God. He has and lives the God-life. We are children of the Most High. (John 1:13). You are God's dwelling place. In Him you live, move and have being. You have the ability to effect positive changes in your world.

Christianity is not a religion. Religion describes man's desire to reach out to a God he believes exists. Then his actions portray his thoughts about this God. Christianity is different. In Christianity man isn't in search of God. One is brought into a relationship, union and oneness with God. Christianity is Christ within you, living and working His righteousness through you. He has given us a triumphant life in Christ Jesus.

In Christianity, man isn’t in search of God; rather, one is brought into a living relationship, union and oneness with God. Christianity is Christ in you, living and working out His righteousness through you. God has given us a triumphant life in Christ Jesus; Christianity is living out that transcendent life of Christ; the unveiling of the living Word in a human life.

The Christian is literally born of God; he’s the Godman; that is, the “mankind” of God; He has and lives the God-life in the earth. In actual sense, he’s a “god.” Psalm 82:6 says, “I have said, Ye are gods; and all of you are children of the most High.” We’re children of the Most High, because we’re ...born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God” (John 1:13). This is the reason sickness, disease, or infirmity of the body can’t, and shouldn’t be your master.

It is knowing that sponsors growing in every tiled of life. Every man on earth so hunted by one same old enemy called darkness (ignorance). God could not expel darkness until He applied light (knowledge) to it. Ignorance is an anonymous bondage  that only a self-employed knowledge can set us free from. You are in bondage to every knowledge you lack; you are still under the bondage of the enemy because you have not employed the needed knowledge that will set you free.

Knowledge they say is power because within every knowledge is the expiring date of any sort of Ignorance and it will unveil you on earth.
Until you know, you cannot be known. It is also paramount to know that ignorance can also dress as knowledge in other to keep us tightly bound in its prison. That is why our anchor scripture says "And ye shall know the truth". Until you know the true nature of things, your freedom will be delayed.

To whom God would make known what is the riches of the glory of this mystery among the Gentiles; which is Christ in you, the hope of glory (Colossians 1:26-27).

Even though listed by many as one of the different religions of the world, Christianity isn’t a religion. Religion describes man’s insatiable desire to reach out to a “God” he believes exists somewhere, and his fear of that “God,” whoever that God might be. Then, his actions portray his thoughts about this “God” whom he’s trying to search out and understand; trying to live his life according to his thinking and perception about this divine being. Christianity, however, is completely different.


Until this becomes a revelation to you, something you know for yourself in a practical way, what you have would be the religiosity of Christian principles, and not Christianity in depth. To be a Christian means you have the very nature of God in your human spirit. It means you’ve become the unveiling of God’s righteousness; the expression and effulgence of His glory.

You’re a partaker of the divine nature; that nature can’t be corrupted or defiled by sickness, disease or anything that’s of darkness, because it’s the very nature of God. This is Christianity: it’s the outworking of divinity—the Christ-life—in you; the practice of the heavenly in the earth!

God has put everything you need to know in His Word. The power of God is in you. When you have a need, put your full trust in God and believe He will do it. There is no other way for you to become all you can become except through the Word of God and the Holy Spirit within you. He speaks through you. The Israelites who were slaves in Egypt, had no Bible. But they had Moses whom God spoke through. When things are not going your way, you can find  answers through the Word of God and prayer. God has a good plan and purpose for you. You are a child of God according to scripture. Galatians 3:26; "For ye are all the children of God by faith in Christ Jesus."
God created you with some education before you were even in your mother's womb. (Jeremiah 1:5). God loves you with a love you couldn't fathom. His love is unfailing, unlimited, unbounded and everlasting. (1 John 4:10). We all who are in Christ, have work to do in the Heavenly Kingdom. We are special to God. The more you go into God's Word, the more your life changes. God is at work in you. There is never a need to fear. The words"fear not" are written in the Bible 365 times. That's reassurance that we never need to fear or worry. God is with us always.
Proverbs 3:5-8;
5. Trust in the LORD with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding. 6. In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths. 7. Be not wise in thine own eyes: fear the LORD and depart from evil. 8. It shall be health to thy navel, and marrow to thy bones."
You must trust the Lord wholeheartedly. Never put yourself ahead of God or anything above God. God should be your main priority in everything you think, say or do. When you trust someone, you put your hope in them and you don't doubt. When you trust God, you count on His character. Whatever circumstances, adversities, or storms you may encounter in your life, God is always with you

But he giveth more grace. Wherefore he saith, God resisteth the proud, but giveth grace unto the humble (James 4:6).

Whatever God asks you to do, He gives you the grace for it. Romans 12:6-8 says, “Having then gifts differing according to the grace that is given to us, whether prophecy, let us prophesy…Or ministry, let us wait on our ministering: or he that teacheth, on teaching; Or he that exhorteth, on exhortation….” So, we’re given gifts, special abilities, according to the grace that God gives us, showing that there’re different measures of grace, depending on what He tells us to do.

For example, if as a minister, you started out by reaching a certain number of people, God will give you the grace to handle that number. When you’re to reach ten times that number of people, what He does for you is to give you more grace, not more anointing or more power.

There’s nowhere in the Bible He tells us He’ll give us more power or more anointing. What power could be more than the Holy Spirit who already lives in us? He’s the power of God! However, James tells us in our opening verse, “…he giveth more grace….” What is grace? It’s the divine influence on a man’s spirit. It’s the outworking or outward reflection of that inward divine influence: the beauty, ability, perfection, excellence, virtue and glory of divinity in your human spirit.

The problem some have had is the misuse of language. What many call anointing is actually grace, but they don’t realise it. They’ll say, “God has given me a greater anointing,” no; He didn’t! He gave you more grace. That means His power that’s inside you is released more now on the outside, on the basis of His calling on your life.

You can walk in increased grace and accomplish more for the Lord! You can have His beauty, glory, and goodness released in your life in increasing measure, and the scripture tells us how: it’s by your humility, submission to the Word, and faithfulness in the things He’s called you to do.

Deuteronomy 31:8; "And the LORD, he it is that doth go before thee; he will be with thee, he will not fail thee, neither forsake thee: fear not, neither be dismayed." There is much unrest in this country and all over the world. God will never fail or abandon you. You have this promise from the Father.
Romans 8:28; "And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose." All who love Jesus, anything that seems bad God will make it work out for good. So continue trusting and keeping your faith in Him. Bad is always cancelled out by God's good. Fear is a bad thing but we need not fear. Isaiah 43:1; "But now thus saith the LORD that created thee, O Jacob, and he that formed thee, O Israel, Fear not: for I have redeemed thee, I have called thee by thy name; thou art mine."

God has redeemed you from captivity. Before we were with Christ, we were in captivity to the enemy and sin. We have been set free, delivered, declared righteous and justified. We need never fear anything or anyone. The words "fear not" are written in the Bible 365 times. That's reassurance that we need never fear, worry or fret about anything. 1 John 4:18; "There is no fear in love; but perfect love casteth out fear: because fear hath torment. He that feareth is not made perfect in love."
Jesus is love. Those who still suffer in fear don't have a full understanding of God's love. Trust God wholeheartedly. (Proverbs 3:5-6).  God is always with you. He has promised this when He says He is with you always even unto the end of the world. (Matthew 28:20).
Psalms 18:2-3;2. The LORD is my rock, and my fortress, and my deliverer; my God my strength, in whom I will trust; my buckler and the horn of my salvation, and my high tower. 3. I will call upon the LORD, who is worthy to be praised: so shall I be saved from mine enemies." David had the answer to the law as if he had salvation. David spoke as though he was under grace. He had a strong relationship with God. You must praise, trust and acknowledge God in everything. He will save you from your enemies.
1 Peter 5:8; "Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour:" The enemy can devour and prey on your phobias. He can only attack if you are fearful. So you must trust and have faith in the Lord. If you are fearless the enemy cannot touch you.
2 Timothy 1:7; "For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind." The Lord has given us a spirit of power and love. We have the same authority to use the Word of God as Jesus had when He was tempted in the wilderness of the devil. Don't let fear stop you from doing what you need to do. Fear not for God is with you.

As a Christian you need not to fear. Fear is the opposite of faith! Be a good Christian. Shalom!

FAITH EXPOSITIONS



No matter what is happening in your life. No matter how much you blame yourself, no matter how obvious it is that you are truly at fault. There is a force that can bring you out of the mess victoriously. Fate is the consequence of what a man has done. But Faith is the supernatural turnaround against the looming and experiencing consequences in a man’s life.

For everyone who has been born of God overcomes the world. And this is the victory that has overcome the world—our faith.

Do you know, you can live beyond that seemingly impossible fate or circumstances? With faith, nothing is impossible. This faith is the provision that God had made available in Christ Jesus unto all the humans he has created. And there is nothing above the reach of this faith. It is a faith that has turned a barren woman into a mother, a sick man into a healthy man, a depressed soul into an happy spirit, a sorrowful heart into a glad heart, a hurtful and hateful soul into a loving soul, a dead man into a living man, a dead business into a living business, a poverty stricken life into a wealth flow system, it has and can touch anything and everything.

God had already made provision for us all. This faith cannot fail. It is not based anymore on what you have done, but on what he has done. This faith is in Christ Jesus who has died and suffered for all our shortcomings, so we wouldn’t have to bear the consequences of our actions any longer. He has suffered our defeat and given us victory over all life’s challenges.
By faith Abraham, when he was called to go out into a place which he should after receive for an inheritance, obeyed; and he went out, not knowing whither he went (Hebrews 11:8).

The Bible described Abraham as the father of faith. The Lord spoke to him to travel to an unknown destination that would become his home, and without further instructions, Abraham stepped out in faith. He didn’t question the Lord; he simply acted on the instruction.

Hebrews 11:9 says, “By faith he sojourned in the land of promise, as in a strange country, dwelling in tabernacles with Isaac and Jacob, the heirs with him of the same promise.” In other words, as he journeyed, wherever he pitched his tent or lived with his family at any given time, he lived unto God by faith, on the basis of what God had told him.

On another occasion, the Lord said to him “…for a father of many nations have I made thee” (Genesis 17:5). Abraham believed the Word of the Lord, even though he was still childless and all he had were his servants. Nevertheless, by the spirit of faith, he apprehended what the Lord had said, made confessions accordingly, and walked in the reality of it.

Galatians 3:7 tells us they that are of faith, the same are the children of Abraham; which means we’re to follow his example. Therefore, ours is a life of faith; faith is the currency by which we operate in the Kingdom. We’re creatures of faith, from a lineage of faith. The Bible says, “For we walk by faith, not by sight” (2 Corinthians 5:7). Hebrews 11:1 NLT says, “What is faith? It is the confident assurance that what we hope for is going to happen. It is the evidence of things we cannot yet see.”

Faith is living according to God’s principles, trusting that He’s whom He says He is, that He’s done what He says He’s done, and that He’s given you what He says He’s given you. Faith is anchoring your life on God’s Word, refusing to be swayed to the left or to the right; it’s the title-deed to unseen realities. Blessed be God!
Romans 12:3 For I say, through the grace given unto me, to every man that is among you, not to think [of himself] more highly than he ought to think; but to think soberly, according as God hath dealt to every man the measure of faith.

Hebrews 11:1-2 Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen. 2 For by it the elders obtained a good report.

Hebrews 11:6 But without faith [it is] impossible to please [him]: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and [that] he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him.

For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal but mighty in God for pulling down strongholds. — 2 Corinthians 10:4

Every one Christian is in the middle of a raging spiritual war. We as believers must recognize that our enemy is very real, but through Christ, we have the power to fight effectively.

Scripture reveals that Satan and a whole empire of evil spirits oppose God and His kingdom. However, the enemies are fallen angels who have already been defeated on our behalf by the Lord. While it is important not to underestimate their capabilities, we mustn't be deceived into thinking their power is greater than it is. They are simply no match for God. When Jesus rebuked demonic forces who tormented people, they were forced to obey. And after He had triumphed over them through His resurrection, the Lord Jesus gave us authority over these spirits. 1 John 4:4 says that, through the Holy Spirit, we have already overcome the enemy because "greater is He who is in you than he who is in the world."

However, if we fail to take up our position of power in Christ, we will feel overwhelmed and defeated. Though Satan cannot touch our souls, he will try to disable us. His plan is to make us ineffective in our spiritual battle with him. One of his most common weapons is guilt. He knows that when our conscience condemn us, we lose confidence with God and therefore are unable to exercise our spiritual authority over his kingdom. That is the reason why he never ceases to tempt us to sin. And when we give in to temptation, he comes and to say to us, "You have sinned against God. You are a weak and unworthy sinner who will never be able to really serve God. Are you really sure you are saved?" If we believe such accusations, we run the risk of doubting our true identity in Christ, and, as a result, become a prey for his demonic host.

But his delight is in the law of the LORD, and in His law he meditates day and night. Psalm 1:2
All you have to do is make a decision to give yourself to it. To focus your time and attention on it. The more you give yourself to it, the more your desire for it will grow. Eventually, it will consume your thinking.
Surprised? You shouldn't be. That happens with anything you totally give yourself to. It happens, for example, with people who give themselves to pornography. As they focus their attention on it, the spirit behind it moves in on their consciousness and eventually draws them from mental activity into physical activity. Finally, they come to a place where they can't be satisfied. They can't get enough.
That same principle works on the positive side when you begin to give yourself to God's Word. You can give yourself to it to the point where it totally consumes your mental and physical life. The more of it you get, the more you want. The Spirit behind the Word, the Holy Spirit, will draw you and lead you closer to Jesus than you ever imagined possible.
I've never yet met anybody walking in faith and power who at sometime hadn't developed that kind of addiction by giving themselves totally to the Word for an extended time. I don't mean just a few minutes here and there either. I'm talking about some serious time.

Psalm 1:1-6
1Blessed is the man Who walks not in the counsel of the ungodly, Nor stands in the path of sinners, Nor sits in the seat of the scornful;
2 But his delight is in the law of the Lord, And in His law he meditates day and night.
3 He shall be like a tree Planted by the rivers of water, That brings forth its fruit in its season, Whose leaf also shall not wither; And whatever he does shall prosper.
4The ungodly are not so, But are like the chaff which the wind drives away.
5 Therefore the ungodly shall not stand in the judgment, Nor sinners in the congregation of the righteous.
6 For the Lord knows the way of the righteous, But the way of the ungodly shall perish.

Then Peter opened his mouth and said: "In truth I perceive that God shows no partiality." Acts 10:34

God is no respecter of persons. He will come through on your behalf no matter who you are, your race or nationality. When you know who you are in Christ Jesus, then there is no one who can stop you from succeeding in life. Putting your trust and faith in God will always cause you to rise above the circumstances of life and be on top.
God will deliver you like the three Hebrew boys in Daniel chapter three. The word 'deliver' in this context means to leave free.In Daniel chapter three we see three Hebrew boys by the name of Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego. They had become high government officials - Jews in Babylon. Hence, they were the wrong people, the wrong race even in the wrong country. But that doesn't matter to God, it didn't matter to them and it shouldn't matter to you either when men try to keep you down.
You can still be on top, because nobody can keep you down when you trust God. God didn't create you to fail. He created you to win. Because your faith is in Him, no one can bring you down. All you need is faith in God, because you and God are a majority.Those who are opposed to righteousness always have a scheme. But the Lord will bring all their schemes to nothing. Because you are a child of God, and you have put your trust in Him, He will surely bring you to your high places. You will succeed and become prosperous in Jesus' name!

John 17:17  Sanctify them through thy truth: thy word is truth.

A lot of Christians have become professionals in asking God for the forgiveness of their sins. They are so religious and dogmatic. They plead for mercy in the morning, afternoon and night. They quote Psalms of repentance and chant religious canticles  everyday. Some have come to a point where they play games with sin and they say "I can always ask for forgiveness".

Such Christians are either outrightly mischievous or deeply ignorant. As a new creation in Christ, you have been forgiven the sins of yesterday, today and tomorrow. The redeeming blood of Christ is effectual to cleanse once and for all. The full load of your sins was placed on Christ on the cross and the price for sin whether past, present or future has been paid. Sin has been conquered. Believers no longer have a sin problem.

The problem believers have is a knowledge problem. A believer can only continue in sin because of a knowledge vacuum. The antidote to this sin now is not the prayer for mercy or more grace. The antidote to it is revelation to the truth of God's Word. Jesus therefore prayed the father " sanctify them by thy truth, thy word is truth". So, what will sanctify you now as a believer is the truth of God's word. When you discover your status in the word, you will not continue in sinfulness. When you discover the effects of those little foxes in your life, you will get rid of them. The word of God is a mirror, it will show you your real self and if you're honest enough to acknowledge it, the word will change you.

Stop the hypocrisy, stop the constant babbling in God's ears to forgive your sins. He has done that already. Allow the Word of God to permeate your spirit, soul and body. Let the word take over your life and experience its sanctifying power. Let the word prick your conscience and set you free.

PRAYER POINTS
  • Dear Father, thank you for the opportunity to demonstrate my faith and live by the principles of our glorious Kingdom. I live a life of faith, and as I act on the Word, my faith is built strong, exercised and energised for continuous success, victories and triumphs.

  • By the power of the Holy Spirit boldly declare your authority and victory over the forces of darkness.

  • Ask the Lord for a fresh appetite for His Word.








  • Ask the Holy Spirit for confidence and boldness to dream big and achieve extraordinary things to His glory.

ALL THINGS ARE POSSIBLE


Take risks in your life. If you win, you can lead; if you lose, you can guide. People are not what they say but what they do; so judge them not from their words but from their actions. When someone hurts you, don't feel bad because it's a law of nature that the tree that bears the sweetest fruits gets maximum number of stones. Take whatever you can from your life because when life starts taking from you, it takes even your last breath.In this world, people will always throw stones on the path of your success. It depends on what you make from them - a wall or a bridge.

Challenges make life interesting; overcoming them make life meaningful. There is no joy in victory without running the risk of defeat.  A path without obstacles leads nowhere. Past is a nice place to visit but certainly not a good place to stay. You can't have a better tomorrow if you are thinking about yesterday all the time. If what you did yesterday still looks big to you, then you haven't done much today. If you don't build your dreams, someone else will hire you to build theirs. If you don't climb the mountain; you can't view the plain. Don't leave it idle - use your brain. You are not paid for having brain, you are only rewarded for using it intelligently. It is not what you don't have that limits you; it is what you have but don't know how to use. What you fail to learn might teach you a lesson. The difference between a corrupt person and an honest person is: The corrupt person has a price while the honest person has a value. If you succeed in cheating someone, don't think that the person is a fool. Realize that the person trusted you much more than you deserved. Honesty is an expensive gift; don't expect it from cheap people.

“Be on your guard! If your brother sins, rebuke him; and if he repents, forgive him. And if he wrongs you seven times in one day and returns to you seven times saying, ‘I am sorry,’ you should forgive him.” Luke 17:3-4

Complete forgiveness can be very difficult at times. This is especially the case when the same person sins against you “seven times in one day” as Jesus says.

But Jesus’ words should be taken to heart. He was not being idealistic; rather, He was being very realistic. Forgiveness must be given, over and over and over again. We cannot hesitate in offering it, especially to those who sincerely repent.

One of the first things we should notice from this passage is that when someone sins against us, we should rebuke him. The rebuke is not to be an act focused on revenge; rather, it must be done so as to invite repentance. This is the only reason for the rebuke of another. If we have a sense that someone who sins against us may be open to change, then we must offer them a rebuke of love. And when they accept it and seek our forgiveness, we must offer it.

But, as mentioned, this can especially be difficult when the sin is committed over and over again. It can become wearying and discouraging. And when a sin is committed over and over again, it’s easy to become sceptical about the authentic sorrow of the one seeking forgiveness.

But none of that should be our concern. Our only concern should be to hear those words, “I’m sorry.” This is the command of Jesus. When one says these words, we must forgive and do so immediately.

This Scripture also reveals to us the importance of expressing our sorrow to those whom we hurt. It’s dangerous to simply presume that another will forgive. There is great power in actually saying to another, “Please forgive me, I’m sorry for my sin.” Though these words may be difficult to say, they are words of great healing.

Reflect, today, upon the act of asking for forgiveness and offering it to another. We are all given numerous opportunities every day to forgive and seek forgiveness. Do not hesitate in doing so and you will be grateful you did.

Lord, I am truly sorry for the many sins I have committed against You. Please forgive me. When I am obstinate, please offer me a rebuke of love. When I need to ask forgiveness of another, please give me the courage to do so. Jesus, I trust in You.

"For with God nothing shall be impossible" Luke 1:37. (KJV). We bless the God of possibilities this morning, may His glorious name be praised. Amen! Have you ever studied in the Bible the attribute of God's omnipotence? Omnipotence means that God is all-powerful. Nothing is impossible with God. That is, nothing that would be consistent with his Holy nature, character and being. God has the power to do what he wills, yet His power is under the control of His holy and wise will. You know that it was God's omnipotence that created the world, and created light out of darkness, and created man. But have you studied God's omnipotence in the works of your life?

The whole of Christianity is a work of God's omnipotence. Look at the birth of Christ Jesus. That was a miracle of divine power, and it was said to Mary: "With God nothing shall be impossible" (Luke 1:37). What man knows is birth only comes by intercourse - male and female (couple) but here the power of God changed things. It was the omnipotence of God. As Christians we should trust God to do anything that we are taught that it is impossible.

Have you come to God with tears of penitence and with deep humiliation and feebleness, cried out: "O God, it is impossible to me; man cannot do it, but glory to Your name, it is possible with God"? Have you claimed deliverance? Do it now. Put yourself afresh in absolute surrender into the hands of a God of infinite love. As infinite as His love is His power to do it. Begin to tell him what is impossible with man and he will do it.

For even hereunto were ye called: because Christ also suffered for us, leaving us an example, that ye should follow his steps (1 Peter 2:21).

The Lord Jesus, in His earth-walk, led an exemplary life. Not only was He a phenomenal intrusion into the sense realm, He was extraordinary in all facets. He was never in want; He had no consciousness of need; He was always in charge of situations and circumstances. He was a marvel, to say the least. He used words like no one ever did.

There isn’t a more perfect example for us to emulate than Jesus. He exercised absolute mastery over circumstances; never flustered or ruffled by anything. Every word He spoke came to pass. Once, He was in a boat with His disciples and they heard Him talk to the boisterous winds and waves. Prior to that time, they had heard Him talk to a tree, and the tree withered from its roots. He talked to blind eyes, and to lame legs, they all heard and obeyed Him. No wonder they asked in utter bewilderment, “What manner of man is this?”

Well, I’ll tell you the manner of man Jesus is: He heads up the new creation. 2 Corinthians 5:17 says if any man be in Christ, he’s a new creature; a new kind of man; this new kind of man is like Jesus. We’re of the same stock. 1 John 4:17 says, “…as he is, so are we in this world.” This is the reason we can emulate Him. Our theme scripture tells us to follow His steps; in other words, follow His examples, because as He is, so are we. He said in Mark 11:23, “You shall have what you say.” Hallelujah!

Practise this even now: command any boisterous wind and wave that may be billowing against your finances, your job, your academics, family, ministry, etc., to cease. Speak to diabetes to be healed; tell that cancerous growth to dematerialise. Like Jesus, you can talk to anything and it’ll obey you. That’s the example Jesus left us with, His very steps that we have to follow.

John 14:12 Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me, the works that I do shall he do also; and greater [works] than these shall he do; because I go unto my Father.  

Ephesians 5:1 AMPC Therefore be imitators of God [copy Him and follow His example], as well-beloved children [imitate their father].
By him therefore let us offer the sacrifice of praise to God continually, that is, the fruit of our lips giving thanks to his name. Hebrews 13:15

Paul wrote in Philippians 1:15-19 about some people who were preaching from a wrong motivation, which was to add afflictions to Paul who was in prison at the time. Instead of getting offended and having a bad attitude, he rejoiced over the fact that at least Christ was being preached.

If you are dealing with problems in your ministry or work, rejoice. It will strengthen you, and that strength will minister to everyone around you. When we praise God and rejoice in His salvation irrespective of our circumstances, we see His glory manifest in our lives.

Paul learned that lesson years before when he and Silas had been beaten with "many stripes" and cast into prison and their feet were fastened in stocks. Instead of sinking into depression, the two of them prayed and sang praises to God, loud enough that the other prisoners heard them. The result? There was a great earthquake that shook the foundations of the prison, opening all of the doors and loosing everyone's bands.

Take a close look at the faith they exercised. Their backs were bleeding, they had been put in stocks, and all this for doing God's will. What a golden opportunity to complain and murmur. Instead, they began to worship God.

God was so moved that He sent an earthquake, and everyone's bands were loosed. If you need doors to open, then begin to worship and praise God. From that kind of praise will come deliverance for you, and everyone around you.
All things are possible with God! Stay blessed!

Prayer
1.Thank God for his word, ask Him to heal all impossibilities in your life.

2.Make a joyful noise of triumph to the Lord and declare your victory over every challenge you are facing.

3.Thank you blessed Father, for the worthy and glorious examples of Jesus. I take charge of situations and circumstances, and reign in this life over Satan and the elements of this world by the power of the Holy Spirit, and authority in the Name of Jesus. Amen.

PRAYER AGAINST ENEMIES

Sometimes, you find Christians who say, “I need powerful prayers; so please, pray a powerful prayer for me.” But what’s a powerful prayer anyway? What makes a prayer powerful? Is it the loudness of the voice of the one praying, or is it because they’re speaking religious words? Well, what you need isn’t a “powerful” prayer, but a simple prayer to a powerful God.

The Lord Jesus, in our opening verse, said that when you pray, you shouldn’t act like the heathen who use vain, repetitive words. They erroneously think they’ll be heard for their much speaking; Jesus said we shouldn’t pray like that. Read His words: “Be not ye therefore like unto them: for your Father knoweth what things ye have need of, before ye ask him” (Matthew 6:8).

Learn to pray like Jesus; He prayed and acted simply. Imagine the simple way He prayed at the tomb of Lazarus. The Bible says, “…And Jesus lifted up his eyes, and said, Father, I thank thee that thou hast heard me. And I knew that thou hearest me always: but because of the people which stand by I said it, that they may believe that thou hast sent me. And when he thus had spoken, he cried with a loud voice, Lazarus, come forth” (John 11:41-43).

What makes prayer work is faith, and not the multitude or multiplicity of words. Jesus made this very clear in Mark 11:24: “Therefore I say unto you, What things soever ye desire, when ye pray, believe that ye receive them, and ye shall have them.” Therefore, make your prayers simple; pray with faith, and avoid vain repetitions.

When you pray in other tongues, your spirit, by the Holy Spirit, prays according to the will of God. That’s primarily the way you ought to pray as a Christian: pray with the spirit first; that is, in tongues, before you pray with your understanding, your natural earthly language. “What is it then? I will pray with the spirit, and I will pray with the understanding also: I will sing with the spirit, and I will sing with the understanding also” (1 Corinthians 14:15).

Philippians 4:6; Be careful for nothing; but in every thing by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God.

Luke 18:1 ; And he spake a parable unto them to this end , that men ought always to pray, and not to faint

James 5:14-16 ; Is any sick among you? let him call for the elders of the church; and let them pray over him, anointing him with oil in the name of the Lord: [15] And the prayer of faith shall save the sick, and the Lord shall raise him up; and if he have committed sins, they shall be forgiven him. [16] Confess your faults one to another, and pray one for another, that ye may be healed. The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much. 2kings tells us that the same anointing that brought blessing, the same anointing  brought curses. When a person becomes a victim of racism, rape, genocide, slave trade and unjust treatment then no one can blame them for praying acidic prayers
