WHEN YOU BADLY WANT GROWTH





You may have noticed that your rhythm seems truncated lately.

Perhaps you used to feel full in your spirit, know exactly what to do or say when an occasion arises and do just that; but now, you are often unsure about the next step to take and can't completely shake off the sad feeling that comes with not making visible progress in the things that matter most to you.

While that may be an indication that you are dealing with a burn out, the issue is not always about dissipated energy, it sometimes is about a disconnection in your Spirit.

This disconnection is caused by a drop in our love level towards God and His presence.


Every time our love level drops, the weight of this world and the thorns of our private weaknesses, choke joy and peace off our hearts. This in turn leads to being stucked.

Like Paul prayed for the church in Philippi as seen in Phillippians 1 verse 9 to 11,  we should pray for ourselves thus,

đź”»Lord cause my love for you and your presence to overflow more and more in every situation and season.

This is because your love for God will bring you into a rich revelation of spiritual insight into all things.  




Here is how it works; Your heart is filled with much love for God such that you press into Him in the place of intimacy, Your heart fills with awe for Him by the encounters/experiences He wills into your life. He begins to reveal things to you. Psalms 25:14, "The secret of the LORD is for those who fear Him, And He will make them know His covenant." (NASB)

We can't possibly have this rich revelation of spiritual insight into all things and fail at things, be stucked or retrogress.

Apostle Paul says it better in verses 10 and 11,

This (insight produced by love for God) will enable you to

đź“ŚChoose the most excellent way of all

đź“ŚBecome pure and without offense until the unveiling of Christ.

đź“ŚBe filled completely with the fruits of righteousness that are found in Jesus, the Anointed One—bringing great praise and glory to God! (TPT)

Does it look like you are not making much significant progress? Don't look too far,  lest you get offended with God and men. Look inwards; your love level towards God and His presence needs a radical improvement.


Growth is first on the inside, before it is on the outside. The most important thing you badly need to grow is your love for God and His presence. Go ahead and ask Him to increase your love towards Him.


Committed to your fulfilment

IN THE WORDS OF JESUS...

It was the time of the passover. I had seen 32 passover feasts, during which my family and I, my disciples and I (When I began my public ministry), would slay the chosen lamb in honor of the father's ordinance. In those 32 years, everytime we ate the passover lamb, I was reminded that someday I would be the lamb that was slain. This 33rd year as I walked into Jerusalem on the 10th day of Nissan when the Lamb was to be chosen, I willingly gave myself as the lamb to be slain. They hailed, called out to me hosanna meaning "Save Us". With every shout and scream, I was reminded of my purpose. The very reason I was born was to die for these and many to be saved. Every voice, every stare, every palm tree, stirred in me a strong desire to accomplish my purpose. They thought they were asking me for political redemption but I knew they were asking me for total redemption. That week, I had the most temptations of my life . My mind fought against the enemy as he

PROPHETIC TIMELINE

Passover is 6 days away. It would begin on the evening of April 8, 2020 and will end April 16, 2020 . This year's passover is very unique. According to the Lord, It has never been this way before and will not be afterwards.  Here are some of the things that makes this year's passover unique. During the Passover I see horses racing down in haste towards a set destination. I hear the words, haste, haste!! At the sound of those words, the horsemen ride faster. Furious is the best word to describe the speed.. Time has been adjusted to run faster  than normal , beginning from the start of the 2020 Feast of Passover. We will henceforth notice the days swiftly moving by. The gates of righteousness will open wider than usual for more people to enter . This means that salvation or soul harvest will be extremely easy during this time. The Lord is asking us to intercede for the salvation of souls and witness to people. If you have been contending for territories, o
