KINGDOM CURRICULUM PART SIX

The Word of His Power


Listen To Podcast: KINGDOM CURRICULUM: The Word of His Power

In this piece, we will be concluding on the Kingdom Curriculum Series, I believe we have been getting blessed since the series began. God has been revealing to us the many sides or layers of this curriculum, and we were made to understand that kingdom curriculum refers to an interactive system of instruction and learning with specific goals, content, strategies measurements, and resources. If we look at the five layers we have gone through before: The Word of Righteousness, The Word of Faith, The Word of His Grace, The Word of Life, And The Word of Truth, you will discover that we have been able to see the goal of Christ for us in those different areas.

 

What He wants us to be, who He wants us to be, what He wants us to achieve, the place He wants us to be operating from. Two things I have realized about the kingdom is that there is a word that is central in the kingdom. The first one is identity, the second one is placement. Identity is like the first point of call, that’s why we looked at the word of righteousness. Identity is the first point of call in the kingdom. When you become born again, you have accepted Jesus as your Lord and savior the Bible says old things are passed away. Your old identity, your old address is gone, behold, look all things have become new. All things have become new means all things; because when we look at the Scripture sometimes, we want to do selective understanding, and that is why the Bible says the letter kills but the Spirit gives life.

 

When you connect with the life of the word you would realize that all things including your identity and your placement will become new, you are now the righteousness of God in Christ Jesus, that’s your identity, that’s why we looked the word of righteousness. The word of righteousness is the seed that is planted into your heart so that you can become a tree of righteousness bearing fruits of righteousness. It’s about your identity. Your identity must be different you are now the righteousness of God. That’s your identity, that new creation that you are is that you are the righteousness of God in Christ Jesus. When you have received that seed into your heart, you have become a tree of righteousness, you will start walking in the path of faith.

 

The Bible says without faith it is impossible to please God, for those that come to God must believe that He is and He is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him. And now when you start walking in faith, you understand that you can move mountains, things can happen in your life, in the Spiritual realm, you can take authority over principalities and powers and rulers of darkness. You know that what Jesus has done for you on the cross of Calvary; He said it is finished. No other foundation can be laid except that which has been laid; Christ. You now believe it; you believe in your heart and you confess it with your mouth. The word of faith in which we preach. So, faith is that seed that is sown in your heart, that makes you believe the word of God and everything that Jesus has done for you. So, when we look at these different layers, there are seeds that must compulsorily be sown in our heart for us to come into our identity in the kingdom, and operate in our placement.

 

The Bible says; we have been seated with Christ Jesus in the heavenly places far above principalities and powers. We are seated with Him, that’s our placement but that placement does not come until your identity has been changed. There are many people that want to sit with Christ but they don’t want to be the righteousness of God in Christ Jesus. So, your identity is the first thing that must be settled in the kingdom, then your placement. So, when you understand that, you now understand His grace, you understand that there is nothing that happens in this kingdom is not taken care of by the bill of grace. everything we do is by grace, we merit nothing, but everything that is given to us is given by the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ.

 

Everything we have access to; that’s why Jesus said I am the way, the truth and the life. no one comes to the Father, no one can obtain from the Father, no one has the privilege or the right to approach the Father and receive from Him except through Me. So, that’s why it’s not just grace, but His grace- the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ. So, everything you receive in this kingdom, whether it is wisdom, blessing or glory or the honor or might; anything at all you receive in this kingdom is received on the platform of grace. So, that’s why the seed of grace must be sown in your heart because many times we go into prayer and we say Lord let your oil of favor rest upon me, what is that oil of favor? Christ Jesus; Christ in you, Christ in you, the hope of glory.

 

The Bible says He is the fullness of wisdom, in Him is wisdom and power, the fullness of it. so, when you have Him, you have the fullness of wisdom and power. When you have Him, the Bible says He is full of grace and truth. You have grace, so when you are weak, when He is in you, you become strong. Yesterday we were meant to see that the law was ineffective because of the weakness of our flesh. What is the difference between the flesh you had outside Jesus, and the flesh you have in Christ Jesus? It is the Holy Spirit quickening your mortal body, you are the same person, your physical appearance has not changed, but something has happened to your Spirit and your soul. And that’s why in Hebrews 4:12, the Bible says the word of God is quick and active, sharper than any two edged-sword. What did the Bible say it is able to do? It is able to divide between the soul and the spirit. The word of God permeates your being.

 

How does this happen? The word of God is sown into your heart as a seed, and when it is sown, we are familiar with what happens with seed. When a seed is planted it starts germinating. It first begins to tape root into the soil, so that’s what happens in our lives. When the word of God comes to us, it comes into our heart just like the parable of the sower that Jesus gave, a sower went out to sow, and some fell by the way side, but the one that fell on the good soil, which is our focus, started taking roots down wards. So, that’s when you receive the word of God we must often time understand that we are born of the incorruptible seed of the word of God. when that seed comes it has to take root first, before sprouting out.

 

Many times, we get frustrated because all we see is the root we are not yet seeing the fruits. But it’s just a matter of time. That’s why the Bible says with patience and endurance we will obtain the promise. You need to be patient, endure, let that seed take root downwards, and when it has taken root downwards, your life is being affected. The fruits of the Holy Spirit start showing forth in your life. you are full of joy; God is already working. You are full of love, patience, kindness, God is already working. After those things have been settled, the roots have been settled; there has been an establishment of the character, the life of God in you, what happens? You sprout, and when you sprout, you keep growing.

 

You keep growing until you become a tree. The Bible says the birds of the air can now nest, then your fruits and be food and your leaves for medicine. What happened? The word of God has been sown in your life. So, it takes time. Everything that we are talking about is not something that will happen between this series and next month. For many of us it will take years, for some months, for some days, for some of us this word has been sown, but we have not been able to, with patience and endurance obtained what this word has to offer.  So, we must understand that grace is the platform through which you obtain every spiritual blessing that God has for us.

 

Then we went to look at the word of life, we understood that God is the bearer of life, death came through Adam but life came through Jesus. Death is not permitted around you.  When Jesus said to the Apostles; you have to eat of my flesh and drink of my blood and the multitude said no we can’t do that, what kind of person are you that we will be eating your flesh and drinking your blood. They could not understand and picture it in the Spirit what Jesus was saying.  And they left Him and He turned to the twelve and He said are you also going? And Peter said; to whom shall we go? You have the words of eternal life. Jesus said the words that I speak to you, they are spirit and they are life. There is a life, the nature we inherited at birth, every human being that came into the world is death. Life only comes via Christ Jesus. Life is like a transfusion. The Bible says that the life of a thing is in its blood. So, what happens to you in Christ Jesus is that life is transfused inside you. 

 

That’s why the work of the Holy Spirit is to quicken, to make alive. Quicken means to make alive. Make alive your mortal body why?  Your mortal body has been subjected to the law of death. So, the Holy Spirit comes to quicken your mortal body, He does a transfusion of the life of Christ into you. When a seed is sown in your heart, you that you are alive unto God. spiritual things are not boring. There was a time I was just reading the Scripture and I was excited and I told myself, it is not normal, it is not everybody that reads the Scriptures and are excited about it. why? They are operating under the law of death. But there is a spirit of life, when the Spirit of life comes your senses are alive to God. it’s a different level. And that’s why as you progress it’s about maturity. Word of life is not the beginning, it is righteousness, when you come into life, you are alive unto God, the things of God excites you. When you are praying in tongues you know you are doing a big deal, you understand that you are shifting, you understand that you might not see things physically but in the spirit you are shifting grounds, you are advancing.

 

Those are the kind of things that happens to Apostle Paul; He said though our outward man may be perishing, we know our inward man is being renewed. Why? The word of life has been sown in His heart. That’s the kind of experience that will make the Apostles say what can separate us from the love of Christ, this life we have received in Christ; is it persecution, is it perils? No! nothing can separate us from the love of Christ. Why? The word of life has been sown in their hearts. They are alive unto God. when you see a man that is dead to God, nothing excites him, you will beg him to worship, you will beg him to read the Scriptures, why? Not because the person has not yet come into the kingdom, not because the person doesn’t know that he is the righteousness of God in Christ, in fact the person has shared many testimonies, the acts of faith. But the word of life has not been sown.

 

The person gets tired, the Bible says those that wait upon the Lord will renew their strength, they will mount up with wings as eagles, they will run and not be weary, they will walk and not faint. This is actually the experience of those who the Lord has quickened and made alive. And we looked at the word of truth, that everything on this kingdom must come on the platform of truth, anything that is not the truth is a lie, it is the deception of the devil. And the truth is a shield, when you have the truth, you have the shield, it is a defense mechanism in the kingdom, when the devil comes with His arrows of lie, you are able to deflect it by the truth. In Matthew 4:4, Jesus replied the devil when he said if you are the Son of God turn this turn into bread, and He said to him, man must not live by bread alone but by every word, every truth that proceeds out of the mouth of God.

 

That’s what we live by. The truth might be difficult to swallow but we swallow it. There was a particular prophet that had an encounter spiritually, because that experience is the similitude of the things that the Scripture, the New Testament was opening us up to. It says and the angel gave him something to eat, I think its in Revelations, Apostle John; and when he ate it, it was bitter in his mouth but when he swallowed it, it became sweet. That’s the truth. It will look as if it’s so difficult to take in, but once you take it in, it is sweet. That’s the truth, the truth is the word of God, Jesus said I Am the way, the truth; I am not a truth, I Am the truth. So, He is the truth. The word of truth is a shield.

 

Apostle Peter also mentioned, it said in the end times, there will be false prophets and teachers, they said they will almost deceive the very elect. Why will the very elect not be deceived? Truth! You have truth as a shield. Because when you look at the temptation in Matthew 4, many of the things the devil said, he even quoted Scriptures but was that the truth? The truth is the whole counsel of God. Not just a counsel of God, but the whole counsel of God is the truth; the word. So, if you are a believer that takes some parts of the Scripture and leave the rest you have not yet examined, taken in the truth, the seed of truth have not yet been sown into your heart. When you as a believer when you are able to take the whole counsel of God, not the ones that are convenient for you.

 

When you are able to take the whole counsel of God, then you are walking in the truth. So, it is important for you to understand that truth is a shield, and most importantly in these days, what will show your maturity as a believer is that when the falsehood will arise; when the enemies comes in like a flood, the devil comes with deceit and lies, he will come in falsehood, he will paint it, the hallmark of all the temptation, the lust of the eyes, the pride of life and the lust of the flesh were all in that Matthew 4, it was just elaborated in the time of Jesus, it was the same thing that Eve encountered. But you will see that when Jesus was addressing him; He wasn’t saying what you are saying is a lie, He was holding the truth as a shield.  It said and it is written you shall not tempt the Lord your God, it is written, you shall worship no other, only the Lord will you worship and only Him will you serve.

 

That’s the truth as a shield. Jesus used the truth as a shield, you must also. There is a lot of deceit and falsehood going on, they will paint it, you will see it on social media, you will see it everywhere. Be grounded in the truth to able to deflect these lies. The devil won’t come with horns and scary face. He will come on the pages of social media, on the pages of your newspaper on your Tv screen, through a friend, through a neighbor and would bring these deceptive lies. What will be able to make you stand? The Bible said stand therefore putting on the whole armor of God, that’s the whole counsel of God. You can’t go into battle in this world and you are armor less. You will be wounded. It is important we understand this; the Bible says he is going about like a roaring lion seeking for whom to devour.

 

What will not allow the devil devour you is the truth. In Matthew chapter 4, Jesus was subjected to this but He overcame. And today very quickly we are looking at the word of His power in conclusion of this series. The word of His power is another layer, having gone through the remaining five. The word of His power talks about our placement where we rule from. The Bible says in Revelation He has made us kings and priest unto our God that we might reign. How do we reign on the earth? At the point when we are walking in dominion, when we are walking in the word of His power. So, this is so important, I want us to start our observation from John 1:1-3In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. 2 He was in the beginning with God. 3 All things were made through Him, and without Him nothing was made that was made.

 

I want to read it again. In the beginning was the Word When you look into your Bible you will see that that word is capital latter ‘W’, and the word was with God, and the Word was God. He was in the beginning with God, all things were made through Him. That’s why when we were looking at this series at a point, we had to look at the interconnectivity, the interconnected union or unity of the trinity. Because we cannot fully attain dominion without understanding the workings of the trinity. Because in Genesis 1 verse 26, God said Let Us; capital letter ‘U’. Let us make man, in our image and according to our likeness. So, you are made in the image of God the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit. So, why do you think you can function only knowing God the Father? How do you think you can function when you only know the Son? How do you think you can function only knowing the Holy Spirit?  There is an interconnection.

 

In our creation, it is “let us create” in our image, the image of the Father, the Son and the Spirit, “in Our likeness”, the likeness of the Father, Son and the Holy Spirit. Why we are not confused that we are carrying three heads, is because we are not three separated entities, they are three united entities. And that’s why we can have a sound mind.  you are not controlled by the Father separately and the Son is saying no don’t move that leg and the Holy Spirit is saying wait. No! you can never find it. It is demons that operate like that. The trinity operates in unison but you must understand them also as they exhibit or exude themselves. If you want to understand how the Father relates, how He thinks, how He does His things, that’s why the Bible is the whole counsel of God. the Old Testament was the dispensation of the Father, when the Father was allowing His blue prints and His will to be done on the earth, and He was talking to people like Noah, like Abraham, He was talking to Elijah, He was talking to Samuel, when you hear those words coming from heaven towards those ones, they are words from the Father.

 

So, you understand the heart of God in His conversations with Moses, that’s why you have to read it, you cannot be a New Testament believer. Because the Father that made you in His image was speaking from Genesis. How do you know Him? And Jesus was prophesied in the Old Testament, His character; He will stand and feed the flock not in His strength but in the strength of the Lord. So, you now understand Jesus the Son, and when He came physically on the earth, the things that He did and how He spoke that’s Him, then He said I am going I will not leave you as orphans. He did not say I am going; I will still remain, He said the one that will be sent to you the Holy Spirit, He didn’t say I will come again, the second coming of Jesus is not what we are going through.

 

This is the dispensation of the Holy Spirit. So, the Holy Spirit is here, and Jesus started speaking to us about the Holy Spirit, He said it’s the Spirit of truth, He will guild you into all truth, He is the comforter, He is the helper, and by the inspiration of the Holy Spirit, all the Apostles started writing about Him, that He is the Spirit of might, He is the Spirit of grace, they started letting us know based on their relationship with Him who the Holy Spirit is. We must understand it. You are made in the image of the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit.  And when you understand it, that they operate in unison, and how they all agree, in first John the Bible says these three bears record in heaven the Father, the Word and the Spirit. And these three bears record on the earth, it said and these three bears record as one. And they must agree in your life like that.

 

The reason you carry the life of God is because they all agree in your life. Without the agreement of the trinity in your life, you cannot have the life of God in you. It is their agreement that makes you, that created you. They agree from Genesis 1:26. John 1;3. “All things were made through Him, and without Him, nothing was made that was made” Verse 3 will be a bit of our emphasis but we understand that in the beginning was the Word and the Word was with God and the Word was God. So, we understand that we are talking about God here. And He was in the beginning with God and all things were made through Him.

 

Hebrews 1:3, we are coming back to John chapter. Who being the brightness of His glory and the express image of His person, and upholding all things [by what?] by the word of His power. Who being the brightness of His glory; whose glory? The glory of God the Father, and the express image of His person. That’s why Jesus said to His disciples, He said; have I been with you and you say show us the Father. It says He is the express image of His person and upholding all things by the word of His power. So, what is the word of His power? Let’s go back to that John 1:3, upholding all things, we want to see how Scripture is interpreting Scripture. Upholding all things by the word of His power, why? Because all things were made through Him. He upholds all things by the word of His power because all things were made through Him, and without Him, without Christ Jesus, without the express image of the invisible God, nothing was made that was made. Without Him nothing can ever exist. His word is what upholds all things.

 

I don’t want us to read these Scriptures with the cloak of religion; I want us to read this Scripture with the garment of kingdom and understand when the Scripture writes all things. Nothing is exempted. It means all things. Hebrews 1:3 says He upholds all things by the word of His power. And in John 1 verse 3, it says all things were made by Him. That’s why He can uphold it. That’s why when Jesus is making bold statements, He is not making it because He is proud. There is no pride in Him, He is making emphatic statement based on His identity and His placement. His identity is the word. Jesus is the word, when you have Jesus you have the word. As Jesus is the word, there are still dimensions of the word. That’s why you will see that it did not say that He is upholding all things by the word of His grace, nor is He upholding all things by the word of His righteousness. By the word of His power. Without Him, nothing was made that was made.

 

The word of His power is the making of His word. The word of His power is the creating dimension of the word. That’s why we said this is like the last layer in the kingdom curriculum, where you like Christ you can create, you can make. The word of His power is the making word. All things were made through Him, and without Him, nothing was made that was made. He upholds all things by the word of His power. If anything would be made, it will be made by His word-the word of His power. So, when the word of His power like a seed is sown in your heart, grow to become a tree of His power. When that seed is grown in your heart you become a tree of His power, where you are bearing fruits of His power. There is a dimension of your life that have shifted, you are making things. The Bible says He has made us; if you look through Scriptures you will understand that anywhere making is mentioned, it is the assignment of the Son-the word.

 

He has made us unto God kings and priest. Is it the Holy Spirit that made us? No! Jesus Christ the word. We have been made in Christ Jesus, we have been made in Christ Jesus, because our making is by Him. That’s why the Bible says without Him, nothing was made that was made, all things were made by Him. The word of His power is the making word. He said as I am, so are you in this world, to make anything happen in the realm of the Spirit that belongs to our God and Father, it has to be made by the word. And that layer, that dimension that makes it is the word of His power. When you get to that point you are making things, just like Jesus you are making things. You are making men whole. You are making men righteous in Christ Jesus. 

 

That’s why He said to His disciples, the sin you forgive is forgiven, whoever you retain their sins, their sins are withheld. Why? Because they have gotten to that point where they are operating in the word of His power. Not word of righteousness, not word of faith; but word the word of His power. Whoever sin you withhold is withheld, whoever sin you forgive, is forgiven. Because you are operating in the word of His power. You have become a tree of His power, a house of His power, a power house. Say that to yourself I am a power house. I am a power house for Christ. Say it by faith because you know the seed has been sown in your heart. you are a power house. It is not at the point where you are playing with the devil. That’s why we are talking about placement. He made us kings and priests, we don’t operate here, we operate seated with Him. And that’s why when you are seated with Him you are far above principalities and powers.

 

That’s when this word the seed of His power is sown in your heart. Matthew 22:29. “Jesus answered and said to them, “You are [f]mistaken, not knowing the Scriptures nor the power of God.” You are mistaken, anyone that does not know the power of God is mistaken. Brethren, life is spiritual. If you don’t legislate spiritually, others will legislate on your behalf. There are powers of darkness, but there is a greater power, and that power is the power if Christ. When you show up with that power, all powers will bow, why? You are seated. It gives you a placement, you say in the name of Jesus take authority over every unclean Spirit, it is not your power, it His power. And once you stand up as a power house, the Bible says you are a Spiritual building, you are Gods building. You are housing His power, and you say I take charge, I take authority over every unclean spirit, over every activity of darkness in this place, I arrest in the name of Jesus. What are you operating with? The word of His power. Whatever you allow on earth is allowed in heaven. Whatever you disallow on earth is disallowed in heaven.

 

Because it’s about making. Things are made. That’s why it’s often said that the Spiritual controls the physical. What is not made in the Spirit cannot show up physically. That’s why we should never be confused. Everything in this realm is about agenda setting. Whose agenda are you following? There is an agenda of light there is an agenda of darkness. There are many people that are manufacturing things, they receive inspiration and concept from the realm of darkness, and they bring it to this realm. How did human beings know that they can draw things on their bodies? Somebody caught the revelation, brought it to this realm. Why is it that so many things that didn’t happen years ago are showing forth? Ask why? Because every day human beings are downloading spiritual concepts and they are bringing it to fore. So, the question this morning is; what are you downloading from the kingdom? What concept of the kingdom of heaven are you bringing on earth?

 

When you are operating in the word of His power, you are operating in dominion, you are a king and a priest, you are reigning, nobody becomes world known without a spiritual backup. Its either the person’s spiritual backup is from the kingdom of darkness or the kingdom of light. One of the kingdoms are sponsoring. That’s why we must operate in the word of His power. You are creating things in the realm of the Spirit, you are making things happen. You go into your place of prayer and say Lord I thank you because Nigeria is yours and you travel in the realm of the Spirit to see strongholds that holds Nigeria and you go there and strip them. what did Jesus do? The Bible says Jesus went into hell and He stripped them.

 

Jesus didn’t just have authority like that, He stripped them of it, triumphing over them in it. God said I am sending you to a territory, like my husband will say; there is no land that doesn’t have an owner. You have to go there to possess it. When God promised the children of Israel a land flowing with milk and honey, were there not giants in the land? So, they had to go and fight; contend. This is the level, this is the layer in which you contend, you make happen in the realm of the Spirit what you want to see in the physical. And say God I know this is what you have said to me, this is your promise, I hold onto your word, I hold unto that which you have said unto me. And I go forth into this service and take this place for you in the name of Jesus, and I take over in the name of Jesus. I receive wisdom, I receive understanding, I receive grace for withy inventions, things that eyes have not seen, ears have not heard, it has not yet entered into the hearts of men, concepts that humans have never downloaded from the realm of the spirit I download it for the course of the purpose which you have sent me to this earth. And you start seeing things happening, you are having dreams, you are downloading, you are receiving, things you never felt it was possible, doors are opened to you in the realm of the Spirit.

 

It didn’t just happen the Spiritual controls the physical. You are going as a power house, you are making declarations, you have opened doors in the spirit and it must happen in the physical. The word is the power of God, everything we need, all that pertains to life and to godliness, the Bible says they have been given to us, when we receive it what do we do? Do we just receive it and start smiling? I am not looking for anybody’s trouble, nobody is looking for my trouble, let me just live my life and go and meet my Father in heaven. Is that why He sent you? No! He has sent you to take over. If you go to the book of Revelations, and you read about the great harlot, the queen of Babylon; Jezebel, it said is it not the woman that sat upon the seven mountains? That the kings of the earth play prostitute with her, there is nothing the devil is doing now that God has not exposed in His word. When the Bible says somebody is sitting, don’t you know you have to unseat the person?

 

When I saw that I became so aware in the Spirit. There are certain things that are going on that the devil is manipulating the lives and destinies of people, and they just think people don’t like the word of God, there is a veil blocking them, why are you not praying. Why are you not using the word of His power like a bulldozer to move out the activities of darkness out of people. That’s what we are called to do. This is a realm where we are operating as kings and priest, taking over. The word of His power is powered by the Spirit of power-the Holy Spirit. We know that these things are not possible in this dispensation without the quickening of the Holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit must quicken you to power, it must quicken you to your place, the things that you have been called to do.

 

I want us to see that Scripture, Ephesians 3:20, so that we will understand these things are actually in the Scripture. It says; “Now to Him who is able to do exceedingly, abundantly, above all that we ask or think.” Now to Him, our God, our Father who is able to do; He is able, the ability is not in doubt, He is able to do exceedingly, abundantly, above all we ask or think according to the power. What is the power that works in us? The power of His Spirit. The Spirit of power is the Holy Spirit. According, in alignment with the power that works in us. There is a power that works in you and me, we must yield ourselves to this power. When we yield ourselves to the power of the Holy Spirit, we are able to move mountains and take territories for God. This is the call of the word of His power. It is the word that demonstrate the strength, capacity and ability of God in our lives.

 

The word of His power is the word that demonstrate, that infuses into us the strength, capacity and ability of God in our lives. Until the seed of that word is sown, we cannot walk in the fullness of the ability of God. The possibilities of God cannot become realities in our lives. Christ explosive power must be infused into us, that’s the word that makes us conquer every difficulty, that’s the word that gives us inner strength and confidence, I can do all things through Christ that strengthens me. I can do all things, not some things. That’s why the Bible says in that John 1, all things were made by Him. There is no impossibility because He is my possibility. I am not lacking because He is my sufficiency, I am not weak because He is my strength, that’s the word of His power, it must be infused into us.

 

The strength of God, the capacity of God, the ability of God. Philippians 4:13 says I can do all things through Christ, the explosive power of Christ, it comes into you and turns you into a different creature. All those timidity and fear of the devil gets out, see that Scripture we read in Acts that we read yesterday when the Apostles were intimidated and they prayed, the Bible says they were filled again and they had boldness. And what happened? Something was infused into them. there are some appliances that some generators cannot power, but the generating power of the Holy Spirit can carry any appliance on the earth. I can do, by my God I advance against a troop, by my God I can leap over a wall, I can! Why? Because of His power. As we prepare to pray this morning, power belongs to God, as a believer don’t be afraid, don’t be timid, anytime fear wants to come knocking the door, the Bible says we have not been given the Spirit of fear, but of power of love and of a sound mind.

 

Anytime fear wants to knock the door, it’s time for you to pray in the Spirit, allow the Holy Spirit to infuse you again with power, and you will realize that you are able, you can.

 

I believe you have been blessed!

Word of Confession: (Optional)

Lord Jesus, I confess to you that I have sinned against the LORD God - in the rebellion of my heart, I have disappointed your expectations on my life. I have fallen from Your grace and followed wrong influences around me. Today, I retrace my steps back to you - and I ask that in your mercy you accept me as your son and give to me (again) the promise of the Father - the Holy Spirit. Lord Jesus, please, come and make my heart your home, and from there rule in the affairs of all men. In Jesus Name I have prayed.
