Whatsoever YOU bind on earth will be bound in Heaven
We are expected to take the INITIATIVE, today MANY Christians are very silent on a number of salient issues, and many more are fast asleep and even snoring!
The Bible reveals to us that while men slept the enemy came and sowed tares amongst the wheat
Many Churches today are reeking of pollution from within because the brethren were and are still FAST ASLEEP, many in their slumber who say that they are RESTING are RUSTING in the process..WAKE UP! Wake up and take charge.
My people die because of lack of knowledge… Hosea 4:6
We are meant to assert our authority, that which God has endowed our tongues with in speaking the word and in prayer
They say, “A prayer-less church is a powerless church” .
Many who go to church today are not growing SPIRITUALLY because the environment is charred and charged with pollutants, forces that neither wants the church to recognize its power nor assert it. The church has been robbed off its position as a sanctuary of succor, rather many hide problems from supposed brothers and sisters because they end up adding to and magnifying the problems
Many have a ‘good time in the presence of the Lord’, dancing and gyrating to gospel (?) music that neither glorifies God nor enrich their spirit man, many are like the seed that was thrown on loose soil that when the WINDS and STORMS come they are battered and quickly go seeking solutions in OTHER places far away from the presence of the LORD Jesus Christ in so doing, they get more entrapped by their arch enemy the devil and they end up with deeper troubles.
Although the truth is, in the first instance their faith never grew past the ceiling of their various churches and they neither knew that God nor had a solid and personal relationship with Him (if any at all!)
Address that enemy, decree and arrest that one who is battling your spiritual growth so as not to be a spiritual casualty as you go along.
Pray the prayer of Hannah (1 Samuel1:13) not just when you are in crisis moments but even when ALL seems to be well around you because the devil is not asleep
Battles and Blessings come HAND IN HAND
Deal with your Jericho preventing you access into that Promised Land that the most High has prepared for you, you can not afford to rest on your oars, keep paddling, divine strength comes as you PUSH(Pray Until Something Happens)
1 Samuel 2:1-10
9 When I cry unto thee, then shall mine enemies turn back: this I know; for God is for me.
