Brethren, we are still in the month of Fruitfulness. By the grace of God every effort you put in to achieve your desired goal will yield bountiful harvest in the name of Jesus.
Today’s edition is mainly about our activities as human beings and how we can either delay or fast-track our miracles. We have often said that as individuals we have some roles to play to bring our hearts’ desire to manifestation even as we acknowledge there is nothing any man can do without God.
Let’s take a physical look at the door. Even without taking a look at the dictionary, we all know a door when we see one but it is not the door that is important but its functions.
The door is either an entrance or an exit. It either takes you into somewhere or takes you out of a place. However, that is the physical door.
Here, our focus is on the spiritual door. The spiritual door has similar functions as the physical door but the spiritual door can either be opened on closed spiritually.
How do I mean? Let’s refer to the words of our Lord Jesus in John 10 vs. 7 “ Verily, verily I say unto you, I am the door of the sheep”.
He was more emphatic in verse 9 of the same chapter, “ I am the door: by me if any man enter in, he shall be saved , and shall go in and out and find pasture”.
Here our Lord Jesus confirms the functions of the door but adds that once you go through him, you will be at peace. To find pasture for the sheep is to be at peace. All the demands of the sheep are met. The sheep can eat, sleep, and rest .
Our Lord Jesus said in Luke 11 vs. 9 “ And I say unto you, Ask, and it shall be given you; seek and ye shall find; knock and it shall be opened unto you”.
Do you get the message? Our Lord Jesus simply said, knock the door and it shall be opened unto you.
This season, in the name of Jesus, the door of prosperity, door of fruitfulness , door of promotion , shall be open unto you.Don’t forget, you must knock first.
But the door can also be used by the enemy to stop you from reaching your goal.
The spiritual door may be shut against your marriage partner. Which means that no matter how good looking you are, no matter how well mannered you are, that marriage partner will never find you. Why? It’s simply because the door has been shut against you.
For a married couple believing God for children, once the forces of darkness are able to shut the door of your childbearing life, no effort of yours will produce children.
If yours is a desire to secure admission into a higher institution, once the enemy shuts the door against you, even if you have the best result, you will just find that you are denied admission though you are qualified.
In the name of Jesus, the God of light shall open every door that has been shut against you by the forces of darkness.
We can go on and on about spiritual doors but the good news is that we have a God that can open any shut door. Our God can reverse the irreversible. He can open and no one can shut.
Our Lord Jesus tells us how to open the door to our breakthrough in John 14 vs. 6 “ I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father , but by me”.
I’ll share with you the testimony of a couple waiting on the Lord for children. Like others, they visited doctors and one of the doctors they met told them if 100 men slept with the wife she would never be pregnant. Why? Her womb was closed. He meant that the walls of her uterus are stuck together. Physically speaking, when something is closed, nothing can have access to it. The couple therefore began to consider surrogacy but they continued to believe God and intensified their prayers. They did not allow the doctors comment to put a wedge between them or dampen their spirit. While still making efforts to meet the conditions of surrogacy, God, the Almighty, the one that opens and no man can shut intervened and she conceived. Her doctor was so shocked that he disbelieved the urine pregnancy test result insisting that he must see the scan.
A few months after, he saw the scan and today, the couple is blessed with a baby boy.
Now, who shut her womb? Only God knows.
Whether the enemy likes it or not, your Samuel is on the way in the name of Jesus.
However, some of us by our actions have shut doors to our breakthrough.
For instance if a single lady who believes she is a beauty queen that any man would want for a wife begins to date all sorts of men, or she begins to look down at all men simply because they are not rich enough, she would have shut the door of marriage against herself. In other instances, a lady makes up her mind, the man I must marry must come from a particular ethnic group. With this mindset, she is likely to miss her God given life partner.
A lady who has had series of abortions before she got married, may have shut the door of her childbearing life.
But we cannot continue to allow our past to hunt us. Anyone who is facing a challenge must be determined to be delivered.
What is deliverance? First, it is about you making up your mind that you can longer tolerate that situation that has made you stagnant. You must say to yourself that it is time that people began to call you with the names of your children. You must say to yourself that you will no longer live a lonely life.
This done, the next step is what are your thoughts? Do you always look depressed? If you do, how can you attract a life partner? Has your home become a quarrel zone where you are always at loggerheads with your wife because children aren’t coming? You are simply delaying your miracles. Were you to be a child, would you like to be born in a home where the peace of the Lord is absent? I’m sure your answer is No.
Brethren, your thoughts must reflect where you want to be. If you want to get over that health challenge, begin to see yourself healed. If you want to be a mother of children, then let your inner mind begin to see you take care of your own baby or babies.
You have written applications and no one has invited you for a job. Brother, begin to see yourself as an employee or even an employer.
Have you been held captive by the forces of darkness or your past? It is your duty to seek deliverance .
Brethren, you cannot subdue negative forces on your own. You need to go through the door; Jesus.
Why? The Bible tells us in 2nd Corinthians 10 vs. 4 “For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty through God to the pulling down of strongholds”.
We have a greater assurance in the words of our Lord Jesus Christ as recorded in Luke 4 vs. 18 “ The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he hath anointed me to preach the gospel to the poor; he hath sent me to heal the broken hearted, to preach deliverance to the captives, and recovering of sight to the blind, to set at liberty them that are bruised”.
That challenge might have left you broken hearted but you must make up your mind to be joyful.
Live a Godly life, mind the company your keep and intensify your prayers.
God our Creator is merciful. He will definitely respond to your prayer.
I see you celebrate before this year ends in the name of Jesus.
God be with us all.
