Word for Today:
Seek God this month with spiritual violence.
Ministry of the Word : True Spirituality
Improving Our Spiritual Understanding
“And from the days of John the Baptist until now the kingdom of heaven suffereth violence, and the violent take it by force” (Matthew 11:12).
Again, I welcome you all to the month of 4th man in fire.
This month, I am appealing to everyone to be spiritually violent with the enemies, real and unreal. This month, you have to learn to hold unto God aggressively as you have never done before. You will have tell God , you will not let Him go until He has uprooted all your enemies; you will tell God you will not let Him go until He has blessed you ( Genesis 32:26).
If there are things not glorifying God in your life, your family, your church, around your environment, or your nation, do NOT keep quiet and watch. Speak the word of God against them. Everything in this world is answerable to the word of God. Ask God in Christ to uproot every plant He has not planted in your life ( Mathew 15:13).
Unfortunately, many Christians lack the sensitivity and awareness that Christianity is a spiritual warfare. Apostle Paul while Counseling his spiritual son Timothy, had this to say:
“This charge I commit unto thee, son Timothy, according to the prophecies which went before on thee, that thou by them mightest war a good warfare” ( 1Timothy 1:18).
This month, learn to war a good warfare with you mouth. Jesus has given you a mouth and wisdom ( Luke 21:15). Expect challenges but never be discouraged by them. Challenges are nothing but ‘light affliction’ ( 2Corinthian 4:17). In Christ God uses challenges to build up your faith. Face every challenge with the mindset of Apostle Paul who was accustomed to enduring challenges with equanimity. Hear him:
“We are troubled on every side, yet not distressed; we are perplexed, but not in despair; Persecuted, but not forsaken; cast down, but not destroyed; Always bearing about in the body the dying of the Lord Jesus, that the life also of Jesus might be made manifest in our body”( 2Corinthians 4:8-10).
Never forget certain challenges will never give way except through ‘prayer and fasting’ ( Matthew 17:21).
To grow spiritually requires daily meditation with the word of God (Joshua 1:8) and seeking first the kingdom of God and its righteousness (Matthew 6:33). It also requires total fear of God, and spiritual training in the word of God: “Train yourself to be godly”(1Tim 4:7-8 NIV).
Dear Father, please give us the grace of spiritual violence this month and beyond in Jesus mighty name. Amen.
Yours in the Vineyard of Christ.
