THE POWER OF PRAISE.

Blessings to you all, all over the world, today I have come yet again with another article full of God’s word and as it comes it comes to you full of power. I believe you will be blessed and full after your reading in Jesus name!

What is to praise? It is an expression of gratitude, for personal favors conferred to you by God; to extol in words or songs; to magnify; to glorify on account of perfections or excellent works done by God.

Let us now understand what is POWER OF PRAISE? It is a great force exerted, or power that comes upon the earth as a result of your praises, there are battles and favors you get when you praise in truth and spirit. After discovering how praises can elevate you, you will never sing again while down casted, or out of compulsion but freely full of Joy and gratitude.

Let us read from; The Acts 16:25-26: “About midnight Paul and Silas were praying and singing hymns to God, and the other prisoners were listening to them. Suddenly there was such a violent earthquake that the foundations of the prison were shaken. At once all the prison doors flew open, and everyone’s chains came loose.

The word of God is power to those who believe, if you believe in his word, then it will come live to you. Paul and Silas were not in a good state to praise, according to human standards they were supposed to mourn, cry, and get discouraged! Since they had been stripped and beaten then thrown to prison for no reason! However, there is a dimension of the Spirit they knew that made them superior above human weakness and circumstances in life.

The Bible says, they prayed and sang hymns to God without fear nor doubt and other prisoners were listening to them, then suddenly there was an earth quake and shook the foundations of were shaken and the doors of the prison flew open and the chains of everyone broke down! Can you see, the power of praise at work, and it is at work to those who believe and the outcome sets even those chained free!

Praises throws your enemies into panic mode, the time Joshua and the war or battle against the people of Jericho, there is something they did that gave them victory. There are times when praise will help you win battles and there is a time when prayer of warfare will give you victory. Joshua 6:20, “When the trumpets sounded, the army shouted, and at the sound of the trumpet, when the men gave a loud shout, the wall collapsed; so everyone charged straight in, and they took the city.”

Praises can make even your enemies to turn against each other and fight themselves. When you worship and praise God in truth and in Spirit, no enemy can be able to challenge you, for the Lord will fight your battles when you praise him!

May the Lord give us understanding! To understand the knowledge of God it first begins by fearing God. A God fearing man shall receive knowledge and gain understanding. It is one thing to be knowledgeable and another to gain understanding, the Bible says in {proverbs 1:5>>a person of understanding will acquire skill and attain sound counsel.

Why is it important that you grasp and understand this word of God? First, it come with power to those who believe, secondly, “there is a secret weapon you will acquire against your enemies!” When you get to understand this word, it will change your life completely. We that are in Christ have overcome what is on the face of the earth, all hardships, pain, sorrow and anxieties of this world. We in Christ are new Creatures and to operate as a beings that are above circumstances there must be a secret truth, revelation revealed to us by the Holy Spirit.

Walk in the dimensions of understanding spiritual realities. Paul and Silas knew the Lord was with them and for them to be in chains didn’t mean God wasn’t with them, they knew if they are being persecuted because Christ Jesus our Lord, it was really a great gain.

Couldn’t be that circumstances have changed your perspective of life and has affected your faith greatly because of persecutions, the Lord still loves you and he is calling you once again to come back home, there is no safety outside Christ. Life is in Jesus Christ. Let not your circumstances discourage you, nor cause you to fear, Jesus came to give us eternal peace and in him we can find rest!

Praise God every single day, for his kindness towards us never runs out. He is still faithful the Bible says, even when we are not faithful, at the beginning we said, we praise out of gratitude of great favors done to us by the Lord! We exalt and lift his name for his goodness and love upon us can never be cut short.

If you know and get this understanding your praising hour will never be the same again, you will praise just like David did when he made merry and danced to he Almighty until his clothes came off! He was unashamed and humbled himself completely just to give God praise. David was a man after God’s heart, he prospered and gained victory against his enemies because he knew how to stay under the shadows of the Almighty.

Make a decision today, to praise him more than you are used to, do not be ashamed of praising him in front of men, for you have gained an understanding of what praise can do for you, and how you will please your Master, our Father in heaven!

If you are not born again please, repeat this prayer and you shall become a new creature that walks in divinity above the troubles of the earth.

“Father in the name of Jesus I come before you and I accept that I’m a sinner , I don’t want to die but I want to have life, let your mercy fall upon my head, today I accept Christ Jesus as my Lord, and my personal savior, purify and wash me as white as snow, write my name in the book of life and erase my name in the book of darkness, today, I denounce satan and his works and accept you Jesus, in the name of Jesus, Amen!

If you have prayed this prayer, join any Pentecostal church close to you that preach about Christ Jesus. You can connect with me also via my Facebook page @Carrythecrossdaily.

If you were blessed by the word of Today, you can go ahead and give towards this ministry and the Lord will surely bless you , Jesus said, “Whoever gives a cup of cold water to one of these little ones, who is my disciple, they shall not lose on their reward!”

SALVATION OF OUR SOULS.

Praise the Lord brethren. May you receive the salvation of your soul on this wonderful day. It is a day made beautifully for us to rejoice in the Lord. 

Let’s start by understanding what salvation really means! Salvation is an act of saving, preservation from danger, destruction or a great calamity. 

Mankind has been saved from eternal damnation through Christ Jesus. 

Jesus Christ became the living sacrifice for the redemption or salvation of all the world. 

We were condemned to sin and death because of our transgressions against the Lord, but because of the great love our Father in heaven had for us, he planned our salvation through his own beloved Son. 

John 3:16 says, ” For God so loved the world that he gave his only begotten Son that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have everlasting life.”

The Love of God upon our souls is greater than anything in the phase of the world and he has proved not only with words but with actions as well. Sending your only son to bear the sins of the world, bearing all the pain, shame, sorrow and all that we face just to save our souls from eternal damnation. 

Why are we required to have or receive salvation? It is because all of us need God’s salvation. Without salvation of the Lord then we are not going to have life. The number one reason why God saved us was to give us life and life in abundance. Initially we did not have life what we had was a life that brought us destruction and death. 

In the Life given to us by the Lord, he gives in us a purpose of living it. It is an implanted sense of a purpose that no one can satisfy except the Lord~ {Ecclesisates 3:11}

Salvation of our soul is very important, for without it we will be living a life that will bring death and destruction in our lives. 

Romans 8:3-4, “For God has done what the Law could not do, [its power] being weakened by the flesh [the entire nature of man without the Holy Spirit]. Sending His own Son in the guise of sinful flesh and as an offering for sin, [God] condemned sin in the flesh [subdued, overcame, deprived it of its power over all who accept that sacrifice

4; So that the righteous and just requirement of the Law might be fully met in us who live and move not in the ways of the flesh but in the ways of the Spirit [our lives governed not by the standards and according to the dictates of the flesh, but controlled by the Holy Spirit].

A man who has received salvation walks according to the desires or ways of the Holy spirit, he has received salvation from sin, which are the deeds and dictates of the flesh. 

Sin in itself is a contamination, an impurity in a life of a man. A man born of God does not continue to sin because the seed of God is inside of that person. 

Upon receiving salvation, it does not stop there, you have been made a new creature whose life is dictated by the will of God. Ephesians 4:22-24 ” You were taught, with regard to your former way of life, to put off your old self, which is being corrupted by its deceitful desires; be made new in the attitude of your minds; and to put on the new self, created to be like God in true righteousness and holiness.”

The new creation, those who have received salvation, are being renewed every single day to become more like the Lord in true righteousness and holiness. 

It is on your part to practice and exercise the word of God given to you. For in practice there is transformation in renewal of mind, testing and proving the will of God.

BENEFITS OF HAVING    SALVATION.

√ You will have peace in the midst of chaos.

√ You shall call on the name of the Lord and he shall save you in times of trouble. 

√ You become an heir of the Lord.

√ You become a partaker of the divine nature of God.

√ You will not live in fear anymore for his love casts out all fear.

There is an endless list of the benefits of being a born again Christian. In the quest to want to know the Lord, it goes deeper than just salvation of our souls. H says, You did not choose me but I chose you, ordained and appointed you to go forth and bring fruits that will endure!”

After salvation, we are called into discipleship and at that point you ought to leave everything behind and follow the Lord. 

Many are called but a few are chosen! Why is it so? It is because, for you to be chosen you would have to have passed tests of faith. Our faith is passed through the fire and if it’s genuinity is true then it can withstand the fire. 

You are passed through a series of tests. Take a look at Job, his children died, his flocks wiped out, he lost everything, even his whole flesh was filled with painful sores. But in all things he praised the Lord, he did not curse the Lord, his faith in God was tested!

I do not know how your faith has been tested? And I may not know your standing view with the Lord but one thing I know is that the Lord is not against you, he wants to see if you are faithful enough to still trust him in the fire, valley and through the storms. 

If you stand strong in faith, you shall overcome all trials in the world. 

You are the blessed one of the Lord.

Have strong faith, the Lord loves you. 

All praises and honor goes to Our heavenly father, Our saviour Jesus Christ and the Holy Spirit. 

PART 2: THE REASON WHY HARD WORK DOES NOT ENSURE YOUR SUCCESS.

Greetings to all of you in the name of the Lord all around the world. On the second part the above topic we will uncover secret truths, hidden treasures we are supposed to apply in order to have success in all we do!

I know you are not used to this, you we’re probably taught, success comes with hard work? That is why I’m here specifically for you, to reveal to you biblical secret truths that make men, great men on the phase of the earth.

Our Anchor Scripture comes from st Luke’s gospel, that’s where we draw these secret truths that have long been hidden since the Ancient times, and it is now been revealed to us through the power of the Holy spirit. John 16:13 says, ” But when the Holy spirit comes upon you, he shall bring you into all truths!”

St. Luke 5:4-5 When he had finished speaking, he said to Simon, "Put out into deep water, and let down the nets for a catch." Simon answered, "Master, we’ve worked hard all night and haven’t caught anything. But because you say so, I will let down the nets."

In the scripture we get to learn that we do not excel by our thinking capacity or human intelligence nor strength but with God’s word. Anything done in the realm of the flesh without God amounts to nothing! Peter was very tired, frustrated and even discouraged, look at this, ” we have worked all night and haven’t caught anything!”

Have you ever been there? Have you ever worked so hard, yet you reap nothing out of your toil? That’s how peter felt! But because he was willing to listen and heed to the voice of Christ Jesus something new happened!

See, St. Luke 5:6, “When they had done so, they caught such a large number of fish that their nets began to break!” They all marvelled and were astonished, how that was humanly possible? Just as you will ask immediately after you practice the word of God! You will be amazed at how easy mountains in your life that seemed so high will be reduced to nothing. On the eighth chapter Peter realized that, this was not possible by any human strength or power and he immediately knew it was only possible with God!

Why I’m I dwelling on that part of peter the most? It is because Peter as at that time represents a large number of people in the world right now! You work hard and yet your labor becomes fruitless. The reason why most people do not succeed after such a labor is because they are operating in the realm of men and not of the God.

The realm of the Spirit is where things are done before they land in the realm of the flesh. It was so hard for peter, Yet it was so easy for Jesus to command results! Jesus is the Lord and when he came and made his dwelling among us, as the Son of man, he faced the challenges that we do face, he was a man! However, he was different, he understood the ways of God and the true dimensions of the Spirit, that is why it was easy for him to command results in the realm of the physical and it amazed many people!

Jesus gave us the same power and Authority that he had! St. Luke 10:19 I have given you authority to trample on snakes and scorpions and to overcome all the power of the enemy; nothing will harm you.

TIPS OF SUCCEEDING THE WISE WAY AS A MAN WITH UNDERSTANDING.

  1. Accept to implement what you have been told by the Lord.
  2. Follow Jesus as Peter did and strive to be more like the Lord.
  3. Accept Jesus if you haven’t accepted him yet as your Lord and saviour.
  4. Walk in the Spirit and you will not fulfill the desires of the flesh.
  5. Read the Scriptures and make sure they are always at your lips, so you be keen to practice everything written on it.
  6. Meditate on the Word of God, the word of God is food to the Spirit man within you, if you do not meditate, your mind will be fed wrong things, that will cause you to worries and anxieties.
  7. Do not be discouraged, “many are the persecutions of the righteous but they still wake up because God’s hand is upon their lives”, be strong and courageous!
  8. Be a prayerful man, the more you pray the more you’re strengthened and recharged for your next assignment in life.
  9. Make up your mind to be renewed and be changed for the former you was not knowledgeable and lived in darkness embrace the Light now! “An unstable mind is unstable as water!”
  10. Spend your time fulfilling your purpose in life, for that is where fulfillment is. Jesus was fulfilled and filled after he had completed his assignment. {John 4:32-34} Don’t work just to work, work in accordance to God’s will.

Hard work is hard labor and to labor without revelation is all vanity, you waste your time, your effort and at the end of the day what you did, could not bring you happiness and Joy! That is fulfillment. If your endeavours do not bring you healing, then they are eating you away { Amp proverbs 18:9}

We are going to end our part 2, with a powerful verse ~ Proverbs 18:20
[20]A man’s [moral] self shall be filled with the fruit of his mouth; and with the consequence of his words he must be satisfied [whether good or evil].

If you haven’t read the first part of the series then go here and read it first, then come back and be blessed even more. You are the blessed one of the Lord, God’s greatest possession!

Share with your friends and family the above powerful and revelational word of God which is a mystery yet a secret truth to those who have understanding. It can be a necessity to someone out there, we always want to be filled with God’s knowledge and wisdom, for It is food for our souls.

All praise and honor be unto our Lord the Father, Christ our savior and the Holy Spirit of the Lord.

PART 1: THE REASON WHY HARD WORK DOES NOT ENSURE YOUR SUCCESS.

Blessings to you all, I hope you are all well and of good health. Today Let us understand the reason why hard work is really a hard way of acquiring success!

Why is it so? From St. Luke 5:5 “Simon answered, “Master, we’ve worked hard all night and haven’t caught anything. But because you say so, I will let down the nets.”

What you need to know to gain success in life is a secret. Men who are great in life do not work hard, they have mastered principles and secrets that make them thrive and walk in success. 

You can tell the difference between a hard working man and a man who has mastered the secrets of success. 

You can work hard and at the end of the day acquire nothing, no fulfillment, no satisfaction in what you were working on. 

SYMPTOMS YOU HAVE NO SECRET PRINCIPLES TO THRIVE.

√ You work for money, your need is to acquire temporal wealth.

√ You do not even love what you do, meaning you are working without fulfillment.

√ Everything you try to do, you do not succeed.

√ Your plans prove to be futile.

√ You are unable to hear from the Lord.{“Man shall not live by bread alone but by every word that proceeds from the mouth of God!”}

√ You have no faith or your faith is small.{ you faithless people, how long do you think I will be with you!”

√ Your problems seem like big giants you cannot solve.{ Mark 11:23}.

√ You do not listen to anyone, you are content in your own state of doing things.

√ You have no Authority figure that speaks to your life! It can be your prophet, your father or your mentor.

√ You do not seek godly wisdom, you seek for ungodly wisdom.

Those are just a few points that can help you discover what your present state is, and what you can do to know the path of life was destined for by the Lord!

Let us now uncover what you need to know or understand about how to succeed.

Our reading will come from Joshua 1:8 “Keep this Book of the Law always on your lips; meditate on it day and night, so that you may be careful to do everything written in it. Then you will be prosperous and successful.”

  • This is one of the strategies you can use to succeed in this life.

Second strategy: Proverbs 16:3-4, “Commit to the LORD whatever you do, and he will establish your plans. The LORD works out everything to its proper end — even the wicked for a day of disaster.”

  • Another secret strategy to use is to commit all of your plans, and all you do to the Lord! He is the one who establishes your steps and works out things to a proper end.

Third strategy: Proverbs 16:20 Whoever gives heed to instruction prospers, and blessed is the one who trusts in the LORD.

  • A man who listens or gives heed to good counsel, godly instruction will prosper, the one who wholly trusts In the Lord.

Fourth strategy : st. Mark 4:40, “He said to his disciples, “Why are you so afraid? Do you still have no faith?”

  • Another key to success is having strong faith in the Lord for what you’re hoping for.

Fifth strategy: Joshua 1:9 “Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged, for the LORD your God will be with you wherever you go.”

  • Another key is to be brave, courageous and strong in what you were assigned to do by the Lord in this life. If you allow fear to cleave to you, you are going to be discouraged.

Sixth strategy: St. John 15:5 “I am the vine; you are the branches. If you remain in me and I in you, you will bear much fruit; apart from me you can do nothing.

  • This is a key to producing much fruit, understand that you are the branch and you cannot do anything or produce without the vine! You succeed only if you remain in Jesus.

Digest and practice this first before I bring another pack of series that will help you succeed in your purpose in this life. 

Be blessed and share this word of instruction, correction and conviction with your beloved friends and family. Every man wants to succeed but without a clear path to follow, it will all be in vain! 

“Those who labor in building a house do it in vain if the Lord is not the one building!”

See you in the next chapter of “The reason why hard work does not ensure your success!”
