Have you observed that there are very many people who when they have a problem, they blame it on others? I have been in a counseling session with a lady where I was blamed for her problems. It was after I was through with her that she realized that her problem was spiritual and not physical.
It’s a beautiful day to be alive and it’s your responsibility to make sure that you enjoy your life and live it to its fullest. Say this… “I refuse to let my life to be wasted. I am enjoying every bit of it”. You will enjoy it in everything that you do. When you serve Him with your life, He will perfect all that concerns you. It’s our month of expansion. I don’t know what you have done with it but EVERY TIME THE WORD OF GOD COMES TO YOU, YOU HAVE A RESPONSIBILITY TO ACT ON IT.
¶¶Isaiah 55:10-11 (KJV) says, “10 For as the rain cometh down, and the snow from heaven, and returneth not thither, but watereth the earth, and maketh it bring forth and bud, that it may give seed to the sower, and bread to the eater: 11 So shall my word be that goeth forth out of my mouth: it shall not return unto me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall prosper in the thing whereto I sent it”.
¶¶Psalms 107:17-20 (KJV) says, “17 Fools because of their transgression, and because of their iniquities, are afflicted. 18 Their soul abhorreth all manner of meat; and they draw near unto the gates of death. 19 Then they cry unto the LORD in their trouble, and he saveth them out of their distresses. 20 He sent his word, and healed them, and delivered them from their destructions”.
God is telling us here what happens when he sends His Word. This is telling us of His character when He send His Word. It’s like a dynamo. It goes ahead to do what it is sent to do. There is something you have to do when you hear God’s Word. How come it is not everybody that hears the Word of God responds to it? How do you respond to God’s Word? Paul was preaching at Lystra and he looked up to a man said you have faith to heal. ¶¶Acts 14:8-10 (KJV) says, “8 And there sat a certain man at Lystra, impotent in his feet, being a cripple from his mother’s womb, who never had walked: 9 The same heard Paul speak: who stedfastly beholding him, and perceiving that he had faith to be healed, 10 Said with a loud voice, Stand upright on thy feet. And he leaped and walked”.
¶¶Hebrews 2:1 (KJV) says, “Therefore we ought to give the more earnest heed to the things which we have heard, lest at any time we should let them slip” .
Every time God speaks to you, you must guard it jealously. Have you sat down to mediate on the Word EXPANSION? You must be conscious of what you give attention to. Why must a woman give so much attention to what her neighbors are saying and allowing them to influence her but she doesn’t pay any attention to what her Pastor is saying? A doctor can give a report and your pastor gives a message or word over the same issue and you will have different results because of the one you decided to act upon. EVERY TIME GOD SPEAKS, HIS WORD IS ON A MISSION IN YOUR LIFE. If God says this month is your month of expansion, you cannot do otherwise but to expand. YOU MUST EXPAND OR EXPAND. ¶¶Hebrews 2:1 (KJV) says, “Therefore we ought to give the more earnest heed to the things which we have heard, lest at any time we should let them slip” .
Today you are driving your own car but there was a time you were hopping from taxi to taxi. There was a time you were living in a single room but today you have your own house. That’s expansion. Your didn’t know how beautiful your new life and status is until you expanded. You must expand this month. There are challenges you face today that doesn’t bother you anymore because of the level you have attained in life. There are things that use to put pressure on you but as you expand in your mind you are no longer bothered again. If you are here and you are still moved with the challenge of buying fuel or recharging your phone, stop it. You must expand. Why is your temperature rising because of your school fees? If you allow your mind to expand, you will see your life differently.
ALWAYS REMEMBER THAT THE CIRCUMSTANCES OF LIFE CAME TO WEIGH YOU DOWN BUT NEVER BE MOVED BY WHAT YOU SEE. YOU CAN ONLY STAND STRONG BECAUSE OF THE WORD OF GOD STANDING STRONG IN YOU.
When a quit notice comes to you, never be moved. Respond to your property agent by saying, “That’s nice. When is the deadline?”. You can’t push a man of God, you can’t push a child of God. Whatever challenges that comes to you is a temporary challenge. When the devil thinks he is pushing you, see it as an advantage. When you are given a termination letter in your office, don’t cry, don’t beg. It’s time to go and start your own business. It’s time for you to open your eyes. For you to expand, God needs your eyes. God said to Abraham as far as your eyes can see. Today, if you can see the land you can have the house.
Lot selected the best part of the Land but Abraham turned to God. ¶¶Genesis 13:8-15 (KJV) says, “8 And Abram said unto Lot, Let there be no strife, I pray thee, between me and thee, and between my herdmen and thy herdmen; for we be brethren. 9 Is not the whole land before thee? separate thyself, I pray thee, from me: if thou wilt take the left hand, then I will go to the right; or if thou depart to the right hand, then I will go to the left. 10 And Lot lifted up his eyes, and beheld all the plain of Jordan, that it was well watered every where, before the LORD destroyed Sodom and Gomorrah, even as the garden of the LORD, like the land of Egypt, as thou comest unto Zoar. 11 Then Lot chose him all the plain of Jordan; and Lot journeyed east: and they separated themselves the one from the other. 12 Abram dwelled in the land of Canaan, and Lot dwelled in the cities of the plain, and pitched his tent toward Sodom. 13 But the men of Sodom were wicked and sinners before the LORD exceedingly. 14 And the LORD said unto Abram, after that Lot was separated from him, Lift up now thine eyes, and look from the place where thou art northward, and southward, and eastward, and westward: 15 For all the land which thou seest, to thee will I give it, and to thy seed for ever”.
Sometimes things that seems to have prospects have hidden problems in it. We were told that, “Lot dwelled in the cities of the plain, and pitched his tent toward Sodom”. He wanted the city and not the assumed wasteland but it was a land and a city that was going to be destroyed. That’s why you should always allow God to help you in your decisions. There is a glory that comes to you every time you look into God’s Word. And as you do, what can you see? Can you see that car? Can you see that house? Can you see that husband or that wife? If you can see it, you will have it.
After God spoke to Abraham, it looked like nothing had changed. God said to him in ¶¶Genesis 13:16 (KJV), “And I will make thy seed as the dust of the earth: so that if a man can number the dust of the earth, then shall thy seed also be numbered”.
Today we are the seed of Abraham. Abraham use his imaginative power and we can do the same. We can create what has never existed before. We can seat in our room and start speaking mysteries. As we do our spirit man will be awakened. What can you see? Do you see a bakery opening? Do you see that salon opening? Why are you wasting all your life looking for job when you can create one? ¶¶Ecclesiastes 9:11 (KJV) says, “… time and chance happeneth to them all”. Those with the best jobs are not the best qualified. ¶¶Psalms 75:6 (TLB) says, “For promotion and power come from nowhere on earth, but only from God. He promotes one and deposes another”.
When you go to an office for an interview and they are telling you sorry, it is not for you. There is no disadvantage for a child of God. Every disadvantage is an advantage for a child of God. There is no disadvantage to you for as long as you have the Holy Spirit.
¶¶Isaiah 54:2 (KJV) Enlarge the place of thy tent, and let them stretch forth the curtains of thine habitations: spare not, lengthen thy cords, and strengthen thy stakes”.
Expansion can not come through human agency except through the Holy Spirit. ¶¶Genesis 18:14 (KJV) says, Is any thing too hard for the LORD?”
STOP USING YOUR MIND TO LIMIT WHAT GOD CAN DO FOR YOU. IF YOU CAN AFFORD FAITH THEN YOU CAN AFFORD ANYTHING. YOUR FATHER DOESN’T HAVE TO BE A GOVERNOR, YOU CAN AFFORD FAITH.
Don’t be comfortable where you are now. ¶¶Isaiah 54:2 (TLB) says, “Enlarge your house; build on additions; spread out your home!”
As a leader become very strategic. You shouldn’t be coming to Church with just two people. You must do more. There is a potential locked inside you that needs to be unlocked. Your mind has to expand for you to become a CEO at age 25. There are some of you who are still living with people because of your mentality. You must change it! HAVE THE FAITH TO HAVE YOUR OWN APARTMENT. You might have been passing through the same area without knowing that a vacant house exist but when God opens a door, you will see it. If you will put your faith to work, the money you need will come. Tonight, you can change that accommodation. Get to that room and lift up your hands, open your mouth in prayers and say today is the last day. If the Bible is true, then borrowing and begging has come to an end in your life.
If you are sharing am apartment with anyone, today should be your last day. If you have suffered for too long, this is your month of expansion. Let it end today. Shame is removed from your life now. Stop borrowing from people – beginning from today. You should be the one giving to people. You should be that uncle and aunt that everyone is looking for.
WHEN GOD HONORS A MAN, YOU WILL HAVE AUTHORITY AND STOP LIVING AN APOLOGETIC LIFE. From today you will transport yourself from the realm of borrowing to the realm of abundance. You cannot preach expansion if it hasn’t worked for you. You must live out the word that you hear and preach. IN THE MOST DIFFICULT SITUATIONS, YOU’LL HEAR HIS VOICE TALKING TO YOU. You must put the Word of God to work in your life. God will open your eyes to see opportunities and to see expansion. Speak in tongues and thank Him. Blessed be God forever more. His anointing is positioning men and things to favor you because of this expansion.
As you hold unto His Word, your will see the changes that you need. You will expand. ¶¶Hebrews 2:1 (KJV) says, “Therefore we ought to give the more earnest heed to the THINGS WHICH WE HAVE HEARD, lest at any time we should let them slip” .
Don’t think that your certificate cannot take you anywhere. Take your certificate tonight and prophecy over it. The Master prophesied over 5 loaves of bread and fed over 5,000 people. As you prophecy tonight, you will see that expansion. Give Him thanks now.
