BECOME STRONG 1
So many people, most especially the beloved of Jesus Christ, do not know the secret behind every success and living a life of freedom.
A few people understand the battles in their lives.
There is another group of people who do not know what the battles of their lives are. This type of people will never look for a way out. They have accepted their negative lot. They have resigned to fate. They erroneously conclude that every evil that befalls them is "the will of God".
A war may ensue in one's life that is designed by God as "a corrective measure" for disobedience or solely to demonstrate His power in one's life.
A fire of war can be ignited from the kingdom of satan or from the people of this world.
Still, one can plunge one's life into a sea of war.
The great, wise and experiential counsel of a loving father, that became the title of this write-up, was given to his son who almost lost everything in his life.
A curse from God combined with self-afflicted injury-of-destiny operated in his life.
After Jacob had received all blessings from his aged father, Isaac, Esau came back with the provisions his father demanded before releasing his end-of-life blessings.
Isaac told Esau,
"By your sword you shall live,
And you shall serve your brother;
And it shall come to pass, when you become restless,
That you shall break his yoke from your neck." Genesis 27:40(New King James Version, NKJV).
The phrase "when you become restless..." is put as
a) "when you have dominion..." King James Version(KJV).
b) "when you become powerful..."
c) "when you become strong..."
Can you see the need for the counsel and its prospects?
It is neither new nor are you alone if you face a war to fight or/ and a curse troubles your life. Whether it begins with you or hereditory running fron one generation to another, one thing is sure: there is a way out!
Another important thing is that may God help you to pass through that way until the end.
Through this write up, I want to speak to you as a person who is deemed fit to be delivered from all wars or curses of life.
Which kind of person must you be?
You must be fully prepared to follow the Way, the Truth and the Truth and the Life, John 14:6.
To do this, please, take the following steps:
* Without giving any excuse, accept the fact that you are a sinner.
* Believe that you cannot deliver yourself from the loads of sin that almost kill you. You need a Helper whose house is not in the flesh.
* Call upon Jesus Christ now to come into your heart to take absolute control of it.
* Ask the Lord to forgive all your sins and that He makes you a child of God forever.
* Resolve as from now to follow Jesus Christ for the rest of your life.
* Buy a copy of The Holy Bible today and begin to study and think deeply about what you read.
* Join an assembly of children of God where they share the Word of God.
If you want further help in prayer, counsel or to know and understand more about the Word of God, contact the author of this piece.
I believe you have taken those steps as you read this write up or before now because, henceforth, I will address you as a child of God indeed.
As a sincere follower of Jesus Christ, your Savior declared about Himself in Matthew 28:18 thus,
"All authority has been given to Me in heaven and on earth." (New King James Version, NKJV).
"All power is given unto Me in heaven and in earth." (King James Version).
Therefore, for the purpose of this piece, these three words, dominion, authority and power will be used interchangeably because they are synonyms.
Read the verse repeatedly, you will note that Jesus called it ALL POWER or ALL AUTHORITY.
This is the reason for His counsel to His disciples that says,
"Behold, I send the Promise of My Father upon you; but tarry in the city of Jerusalem until YOU ARE ENDUED WITH POWER from on high." Luke 24:49.
This same counsel is meant for you, as a child of God and a follower of Christ. Please tarry before the Lord until He endues you with Power from above.
Apostle Paul counsels in I Corinthians 16:13 thus,
"Watch, stand fast in the faith, be brave, be strong."
Can you now see it clearly that it is mandatory for you to Have The Dominion? Remember that Jesus also was given ALL POWER.
This means that father Isaac knew what he was telling Esau about POWER. Experience is the best teacher.
May God help us, we shall examine the life of Isaac and his power towards the end of this title.
