Life has two sides, the practical side and the prophetic side, and you must work the two very well in these days we are stepping into. When you get into a zone and it looks like there is destruction ahead, you will need to take heed to the prophetic at that moment. Handling these two sides of life will help us to know the difference between the different situations and what to do at such instances.
Isaiah 60:19 says rt The sun shall be no more thy light by day; neither for brightness shall the moon give light unto thee: but the Lord shall be unto thee an everlasting light, and thy God thy glory."Do you know what God is saying here? That is a prophecy that a time will come that what used to work normally will no longer work. This is talking of the time when what is normal and usual can't face what you are facing. At such times, men are separated from men: some will go under, and some will go over. It is my declaration that you will not be among those that will go under, but you will go over.
When the Israelites were in Egypt, there was darkness in Egypt but light in Goshen. All the evil touching the Egyptians were not touching them. So any Egyptian that was wise would come to the Israelites for help. And God is saying this is the time He wants to begin to draw the attention of the world to His children. When Christians fail in life, it is not the name of Jesus that failed; it was their faith that failed.
God wants you to take along this year the WAY OF FAITH. If you take this way, your sun won't go down. It sounds so simple in teaching but it is not so in practice! If you take the way of faith, you can only go up. God will only meet you at the point of your faith. Faith is the currency of the kingdom. At the end of faith is always someone called God, and at the end of fear is also someone called satan. If you have fear, don't step out, otherwise the devil is going to mess you up bad! Don't step out in fear pretending to be in faith. There will be a time God will give you an opportunity to declare your faith. I have not come to ask you to do something stupid but to tell you the key that God is giving us for the days ahead. Don't try to prepare another person's faith but your own faith, don'ttry to declare another person's faith but your own faith. Your faith knows exactly what you can deal with now. Your faith determines the degree of the supernatural experiences you have. What is delaying you is not the devil, it is your faith.
Most of you are used to salary and we entering into the days that the sun will no more be your light by day. Whatever God gives you, you will take it first by faith before you take it by cash. You will do your natural work, but what is the force that is backing and supporting you? Just one day that fear adds to your time can add #lOmillion to your cost. Many people are sending their children to a school lesser than what they actually desire because oflack of faith.
You cannot take anything that God gives you if you don't take it by faith, how long will you keep postponing? When are you going to take a decision and say, "Lord, I will take it now"? What can your faith take?Thatis where you will find God!
Till next week, go and win with Jesus.
