- Always read the Bible based on your need asking God for help as He promised John 14:13,14
- Fast and pray. Fasting was used in the Bible times especially in difficult times remember the time of Queen Esther Esther 4:1….
- Praise God through singing. The devil trembles when you praise God and closed doors open.
- Believe Mark 11:24 and keep having faith. Our never go in vain God surely listens.
Searching your heart.
You as a Christian have signed a ticket to follow Jesus. You are born again and have accepted Jesus as your personal Savior. Ask yourself “Is your heart genuine?”
“The spirit is willing but the flesh is too weak”
Many are born again Christians but their heart desires denies them the chance to come closer to God. They ask God for things with bad motives. The spirit of selfishness has filled every heart. Everyone only think of themselves forgetting about the love, care and sharing, the gospel that Jesus left for us to spread. That is why whenever we ask for anything from God; He refuses to answer us back. We are told to come closer to him so that he can see our humbleness right from inside our hearts and he will listen to us. Purify our hearts; remove every evil thought, worldly desire that brings fight and quarrels amongst us. Things like pride that make us consider ourselves to be better than others. Before you judge your brother on how alcoholic or how he has never stepped into a church or how he is a sinner than you are, consider yourself the most sinful person, repent and ask for forgiveness. Wash your hands you sinner; means let go of any sinful desire, your old ways and live a new life. You are lucky you are already chosen, ask God to guide you through this race so that you can be the light of the world, can help in saving more souls by being his disciple and you will see his goodness. He will lift you up. Matt 6:33 seek the kingdom of heaven first and he will provide the rest
Another way of worshiping God is through praise. We have seen through the bible the power within praise. Besides miracles happening these people got filled inside their hearts with the Spirit.1 Samuel 16 when the Lords Spirit left Saul, God sent an evil spirit to Saul that tormented him. His servants advised him to order for a man who knows how to play the harp and recommended David son of Jesse. Verse 23 says “whenever the evil spirit sent by God came to Saul, David would get his harp and play it. The evil spirit would leave…” meaning there is power that God himself has bestowed on praise and even the instruments used during praise. They are able to send evil spirits away and invite Holy Spirit near.
When we praise the Lord our God, His Glory appears. 2 Chronicles 5:11 where the Covenant Box of the Lord was returned to the Temple the Glory of God appeared. The Levites praised God with cymbals, harps and trumpets that accompanied the singers. “…As the priests were leaving the temple, it was suddenly filled with the dazzling light of the Lords presence…” this shows how God responds when praised immensely. In 2 Chronicles 20:22 “as they began to sing, the Lord threw the invading armies into panic.” We see here how God caused the enemies who wanted to attack King Jehoshaphat in Judea to turn against themselves and kill each other, this was because the Judeans praised the Lord marching before the army.
Acts 16:25-26 “About midnight Paul and Silas were praying and singing hymns to God,… suddenly there was a violent earthquake, which shook the prison to its foundations. At once the doors opened and the chains fell off all prisoners.” This miracle happened because of the praises and hymns that Paul and Silas sang for the Lord. The jailer and his family got saved that very night. Praising God can perform miracles in a way that no one expects. Try this and you will have a testimony to tell.
The kind of love that God has for us is so much incredible. Despite the fact that we are great sinners He still care for us. We only think about ourselves, we don’t even look for Him because we are busy doing our businesses. Serving Him has become a joke or prestige to others, instead of humbling ourselves we are very proud. Yet Jesus said himself that he brought salvation free in order for no one to boast about it. His love is so great that he thought of people like me and you. Sit down somewhere and start thinking of what are you robbing your God. Return the love He is giving to you. No one can love you like He does.
Why do you care so much about what people think about you while worshiping God? Let them think whatever they want. In the end God will deliver his promise. Have you ever thought of how Joshua and his men looked foolish while they matched around Jericho? Marching around a city just to bring the enemy down in the name of God’s promise is not easy. But they did it and in the end they shouted and the walls fell. The struggling we are going through are there to give God glory.
God has spoken blessings in your life.
God is not like men, who lie; he is not a human who changes his mind. Whatever he promises he does. He speaks and it is done. When God blesses, no one can call it back. Numbers 23:19.
God brought into this world and he has a purpose for you to fulfil in this world.I represent him who do you represent? He wants you to grow in character, knowledge and wisdom.
2 Peter 3:18
Continue to grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ.
Put your faith into action.
