The Amazing Benefits Of Divine Instructions

  Matthew 2:13-23 Our text passage shows that the life of young Jesus was spared through a divine instruction. God instructed Joseph the husband of Mary the mother of Jesus to move his young family to a place of safety when Herod the king was after Jesus's life. Jesus, Mary, and Joseph benefitted from  divine instructions. Perhaps there would have been no Savior to redeem us if that divine instruction was not given by God through His angel in Joseph's dream to take Jesus and His mother to Egypt. That divine instruction brought about a divine direction which saved Jesus's life from king Herod's cruel children homicide. Divine instructions preserve us. You need instructions from God to fulfill and make the most of your destiny. It is the wise who follow divine instructions. The Bible informs that those who despise instructions are fools. Proverbs 1:7 It takes some discipline to follow instructions through. Our instructions from God come to us from the written word of God

Unusual Instructions

  Psalm 32:8 You might be just an instruction away from your miracle. You are an instruction away from your next level. Your instruction from God is your personal covenant with God. You need God's specific and unique instruction for your life. The breakthrough you seek is preceded by a divine instruction. David was given breakthroughs in warfare over the Philistines in the same chapter twice, but each breakthrough had a different instruction preceding it. 2 Samuel 5:17-25 God's instructions produce results. God's instructions align us with God's will and purpose when followed through or obeyed. God's instructions may not make sense to the carnal mind. 1 Corinthians 2:14 God's instructions can be unusual or even seem strange. There is a purpose, a result, a manifestation, an aligning, or message the instructions of God are meant to produce. God instructed one of His prophets (Hosea) to marry a loose woman, perhaps a prostitute (Gomer) who turned out to be unfaith

The Hands Of Jesus

 Matthew 8:1-3 The hands of Jesus Christ are healing hands. The hands of Jesus are miracle hands. The hands of Jesus are supernatural hands. The hands of Jesus make things work! The hands of Jesus was the hands of God expressing itself through a human frame. Everyone Jesus touched with his hands never remained the same, they either received a miracle, healing, or were made better in some way. Anything Jesus touches is made strong, whole, blessed, well, and fully functioning. Mark 1:41-42 All things have been given by the Father into the hands of Jesus. John 3:35 The power of Jesus is expressed through His mouth, and through His hands. In His mouth there is power, this is depicted as a sword. Revelation 1:16 Revelation 19:15 The power in the mouth of Jesus is called the words of eternal life. John 6:68 The words of eternal life are creative, powerful, prophetic, and supernatural words that affect life and creation. Jesus can touch with His words or hands. The hands of Jesus can bring sp

On Hind's Feet

Psalm 18:33 Our text passage shows us we need feet like hinds feet to get to the heights we should get to. There is a height God intends for you to get to, but your feet will determine whether you make it to your height, to your mountain top. Another name for hind is deer.  The deer can be found on and around mountain tops at times. You don't climb a mountain with shaky feet, wounded feet, or disabled feet. The feet of the hind/deer are feet that are strong, they're feet that stand firmly, and tread safely on paths of testing and trouble. When you walk through the valley of the shadow of death, God wants your feet to be like hind's feet. Hind's feet refers to your foundations. Our foundation matters and the Bible has a lot to say about that. The foundation of our body, our physical frame when upright is our feet. If your feet are hurt or in pain it affects your balance and you'll be left with no choice but to limp or fall. God doesn't want you to fall on your jo

Redeeming The Time

 Ephesians 5:15,16 We gather from our text passage that redeeming the time answers to wisdom. If there is anything every living human being needs to do in this new year, it is to redeem the time. We need to redeem the time because God instructs it. We need to redeem the time because the days are evil. We need to redeem the time because human beings have a limited time to do what they need to do, no one lives forever on earth at the moment. We need to redeem the time because there is a speed up of time and events before the Lord's return. Zephaniah 1 :14 The time and season we are in calls for a redeeming of the time. What does it mean to redeem the time ? To redeem the time is basically to compensate for lost or wasted time. It is to gain or regain possession of your time by paying a price. Time has always been a commodity people say cannot be regained. While that is true in a sense, God can help us make up for lost or wasted time. Redeeming the time starts with God, for our times

Supernatural Rewards

 1 Corinthians 9:24 Life can be likened to a race, after the race comes the reward. God is not a user or abuser, God doesn't use and dump people. God is a rewarder, God is in the business of rewarding people. God rewards us in this lifetime. Matthew 19:29 God also rewards us in eternity. James 1:12 God's rewards manifest in our physical realm, His rewards start from the spirit dimension. The kingdom of God which the believer has been translated to, has a reward system. Matthew 6:33 Throughout the scriptures we see God rewarding people. God rewards our endurance towards Him and towards His cause. Matthew 24:13 God rewards our honoring His kingdom and righteousness. Matthew 6:33 God rewards our respecting His presence. 2 Samuel 6:11-15 God is not a commander or task master who sends his soldiers or servants out into battle without giving them from the spoils of war. It is not God's will that we identify with Him, suffer for His sake, and go unrewarded. This time of the year i

Supernatural Loyalty

 2 Timothy 2:13 If God denies His people He has denied Himself. God cannot deny Himself. God is faithful and loyal. God is fiercely loyal to those who are in covenant with Him. The supernatural God is supernaturally loyal. John 15:13 God regards loyalty to His people as loyalty to Himself. You can be assured God will come through for you if you are in covenant relationship with Him through Jesus Christ. Romans 8:32 A strategy of the enemy is to create doubt in you, he wants you to doubt God. The enemy would have you doubt God's love, God's goodness, God's faithfulness, and God's loyalty to you. The enemy is a manipulator. He will manipulate situations, circumstances, and inspire people to mistreat you so that you'll blame God for it. The enemy wants you to murmur and complain. He played such a game with the Israelites as they journeyed to the promised land.  Unfortunately the Israelites took the bait, God got angry with the Israelites and many of them fell. We have
