LOOKING UNTO JESUS
By Prophet Abiola Adebisi (CHRIST MIRACLE CHURCH MISSION)
“And the people spoke against God and against Moses: ‘Why have you brought us up out of Egypt to die in the wilderness? For there is no food and no water, and our soul loathes this worthless bread! So the Lord sent fiery serpents among the people, and they bit the people and many of the people of Israel died. Therefore the people came to Moses and said’ we have sinned, for we have spoken against the Lord and against you; pray to the Lord that He take away the serpents from us. So Moses prayed for the people, they the Lord said to Moses, ‘make a fiery serpent, and set it on a pole; and it shall be that everyone who is bitten, when he looks at it, shall live. So Moses made a bronze serpent, and put it on a pole, and so it was if a serpent had bitten anyone, when he looked at the bronze serpent, he lived” – Numbers 21:5-9
You must realize what you have done, confess your sins and the power of God will deliver you. You will not have a solution until you realize what you have done. There is a place for confession; a place for prayer, a place for confession and restitution.
There are people in the churches today who think they are wiser than God. But for you, look unto God even though the pain is so much listen to God’s instructions; for it is the way out. “Looking unto Jesus, the author and finisher of our faith, who for the joy that was set before Him endured the cross, despising the shame and now sits down at the right hand of the throne of God” – Hebrews 12:2. Don’t look unto that trouble or pain, but look unto Jesus, the author and finisher of our faith.
Jesus is the author of our lives so we can never be humiliated by the devil. Author is from the word ‘Authority’. The person that has authority over you is the author of your life. Jesus had finished the race of our faith on the cross over two thousand years ago. The story of the cross ended with Jesus. So step into His authority because He is the author of our lives. Until Jesus becomes the author of your life, you will see the Bible as literature, while He is, the ‘RHEMA’, the spoken/deep word of the Bible. You have to do it for God before you see Him doing it for you.
The shame you are carrying now is to endure as you despise the shame. To cure yourself, you need to endure and to be patient. “But seek ye first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added to you. Therefore, do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about its own things. Sufficient for the day is its own trouble” Mat 6:33-34.
You should allow God to take for you what is not in your power. You are not meant to be agitated or to be complaining but seek out; and then knock. We are seekers in order not to sink. Worry for nothing, prepare for all things. Don’t let things bother you. ‘Therefore do not worry, saying, what shall we eat? Or what shall we drink? Or what shall we wear? For after all these things the Gentiles seek, for your heavenly father knows that you need all these things” – Matthew 6:31-32.Worry for nothing; seek God first.
It is not what is happening to you but the joy of the Lord is your strength. Trust God for His word because He never fails. A failure is someone who fails to believe what God has said. You are not a failure, you can never be let down until you lose your focus from Him. Where ever you have lost your focus, confess. The level of curses broken in your life depends on your obedience. Lose yourself, resist the devil and he will flee from you.
You can never be stopped until you stop yourself. The size of your trouble will determine the size of your glory. You are not a limited person, rather you are a force to be reckoned with, because every trouble you are going through is to make you strong.
