Discipleship

Determination, Discovery, Discipline will lead to fulfilling Destiny Determine to press into the future God has for you. Your determination starts with decisions. Decide to lay hold of all God has for you. Some decisions include: letting God’s Word be final authority in your life; deciding to be a student of life and a student for life; letting the Holy Spirit teach you things you don’t know or don’t have the right orientation about. Decide to watch your tongue and be a doer of God’s Word. Some things are not properly learnt because the inner motives may not be correct. So many times people want to obey an instruction from God but don’t check if their motives are in harmony with a God’s way of doing things. When motives are wrong, God’s purposes go unfulfilled even though the people believe or think they are obeying God.   James 1:21-25 (NKJV) Doers-Not Hearers Only Therefore lay...

  Faith is a lifestyle that includes your thought life, your attitude and orientation towards challenges. It is based on the covenant Word of God and its goal is fulfilling the will of God and pleasing Him. With it we lay hold on all Christ has made available to us. Jesus Christ paid the eternal price for our victory in life and faith lays hold of the victory we have in Christ. Our obedience, sacrificial living as well as saying “no” to sin and the works of the flesh are all involved in the lifestyle of faith. Maintaining a focus on our faith life will help increase its productivity amongst other things.   Psalms 23:4-6 Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil; For You are with me; Your rod and Your staff, they comfort me. You prepare a table before me in the presence of...

Strategies for a Victorious Year Get rid of offences Pursue your passion with hunger Pursue your purpose: know your why As you give yourself to serving others you will soon discover what you are most passionate about. Within your passion lies your purpose in God. It will take receiving Christ as your Lord and Saviour, knowing who you are in Christ and then serving God by serving His people, to position you to discover your passion and eventually your purpose. The Holy Spirit has been sent to help you to become all you were designed to become, as well as develop the confidence in God’s presence and power in your life, so you can have victory in every area of your life. The anointing is the rubbing off of God’s power into your life. You need to learn to walk in the anointing as well as carry it to bless others,...

Fulfilment of Desires, Longings & Dreams. Hope deferred makes the heart sick, But when the desire comes, it is a tree of life.  13 He who despises the word will be destroyed, But he who fears the commandment will be rewarded. Proverbs 13:12-13 | NKJV Blessed is she who believed, for there will be a fulfillment of those things which were told her from the Lord.” Luke 1:45 | NKJV 2. Restoration When the Lord restored the fortunes of Zion, we were like those who dreamed. Psalms 126:1 | NIV Be glad then, you children of Zion, And rejoice in the Lord your God; For He has given you the former rain faithfully, And He will cause the rain to come down for you— The former rain, And the latter rain in the first month. 24 The threshing floors shall be full of wheat, And the vats shall overflow with new wine and oil.  25 “So I will restore to you the years that the swarming locust has eaten, The crawling locust, The consuming locust,And the...

Our response to God in the seasons of our lives always opens up new seasons to us. When Phillip left the revival meetings in Samaria to go to the road leading to the desert, he went from being a city mover to potentially being a nation changer. History has it that the eunuch he led to the Lord was responsible for affecting Ethiopia with the Gospel. Phillip’s obedience opened up new vistas for kingdom growth. When Apostle James said we should count it all joy when we fall into diverse trials, we are learning how to turn seasons of trial into joyful ones; hence one season is brought to a quick end as the next season gets activated. When Paul and Silas prayed and sang praises in the prison, God sent an earthquake to bring deliverance for them. Acting on the Word of God is known to bring victorious seasons into...

HOW DO I MEASURE MY SPIRITUALITY? WHAT PARAMETERS CAN I USE TO DETERMINE MY REAL GROWTH SPIRITUALLY? HOW CAN I DETERMINE WHERE I AM IN MY WALK WITH GOD? These questions come up from time to time as we all try to assess where we are as far as our spiritual life is concerned. It comes up in helping others see where they are as we try to help individuals get a hold of the direction their lives are going. What happens in your daily life is the greatest determining factor as to what you will become in the future. Your future is seen in the seeds you are sowing today. Whatever you spend your time and money doing today will determine where your confidence and expectations lie tomorrow. Spiritual laws are governed by Kingdom principles and they are well related to agricultural laws of sowing and reaping. I believe three aspects...

“Let no one despise (look down on your youthfulness), but be an example to the believers in word, in conduct, in love, in spirit, in faith, in purity. Till I come, give attention to reading, to exhortation, to doctrine (teaching). Do not neglect the gift that is in you, which was given to you by prophecy with the laying on of the hands of the eldership. Meditate on these things; give yourself entirely to them, that your progress may be evident to all. Take heed to yourself and to the doctrine. Continue in them, for in doing this you will save both yourself and those who hear you.” 1 Tim. 4:12-16. The Apostle Paul was saying a lot to Timothy, his disciple, who had taken on leadership responsibilities in the above passage. Amongst other things he is saying to us that we should understand the potentials that lie within us and...

“The Lord gives voice before His army, for His camp is very great; For strong is the One who executes His word” (Joel 2:11). “For the weapons or our warfare are not carnal but mighty in God for pulling down strongholds, casting down arguments (imaginations) and every high thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of God, bringing every thought into captivity to the obedience of Christ,” (2 Corinthians 10:4-5, NKJV) The history of the Christian Church in contemporary times has been filled with stories of people who catch only a glimpse of who they are, or what they have become in Christ, or people who have no clue as to what exactly they have become, spiritually because of the sacrifice of Christ on the cross of Calvary. Those who catch a glimpse of who they have become tend to run off with their little 'vision" or picture and run roughshod over...

THE GOVERNMENTAL ASSEMBLY: “But you have come to Mount Zion and to the city of the living God, the heavenly Jerusalem, to an innumerable company of angels, to the general assembly and the church of the first born who are registered in heaven, to God the Judge of all, to the spirits of just men made perfect”(Hebrews 12:22-23). This represents the Assembly of God’s people who carry authority. The “ecclesia” is the equivalent of the senate of a government. The strength of God flows out of Zion (Ps 110:1-3) and His Kingdom rules in the midst of His enemies. The Holy Spirit through prayers and the gifts of the Spirit, extends the sceptre of God’s authority over the nations. The essential feature is that the governmental authority of God is in His people and they are required to respect His order in their lives and conduct. The increase of His government (kingdom)...
