Stay in the Word:-

The Message Bible :Genesis 3:23-24 So God expelled them from the Garden of Eden and sent them to work the ground, the same dirt out of which they’d been made. He threw them out of the garden and stationed angel-cherubim and a revolving sword of fire east of it, guarding the path to the Tree-of-Life.

When God created Adam and Eve. He gave them everything they needed in the garden of Eden and their only instruction was not to eat the fruit of the tree in the middle of the garden.
Amplified Bible Genesis 2:16-17 And the Lord God commanded the man, saying, You may freely eat of every tree of the garden; But of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil and blessing and calamity you shall not eat, for in the day that you eat of it you shall surely die.

But Adam and Eve messed up, they ate the fruit and they lost everything. How many times in life are we trading the best life God has destined for us for worldly pleasures.

Adam had everything but he was left with nothing.
God desires the best for you, but you have to live by His word to see His glory in your life. Amplified Bible Acts 20:32 And now [brethren], I commit you to God [I deposit you in His charge, entrusting you to His protection and care]. And I commend you to the Word of His grace [to the commands and counsels and promises of His unmerited favor]. It is able to build you up and to give you [your rightful] inheritance among all God’s set-apart ones (those consecrated, purified, and transformed of soul).

Amplified Bible Joshua 1:8 This Book of the Law shall not depart out of your mouth, but you shall meditate on it day and night, that you may observe and do according to all that is written in it. For then you shall make your way prosperous, and then you shall deal wisely and have good success.

Stick to the word and you will shine in all you do. No situation would be too big for you. Just imagine the story of Adam if He had abided by the word, this world could have been paradise for everyone.

The life of your dreams is possible just let God be the Lord of your life. Abide in Him. Walk in His presence always and you will enjoy the best of the land.

Amplified Bible Psalm 1:1-3 Blessed (happy, fortunate, prosperous, and enviable) is the man who walks and lives not in the counsel of the ungodly [following their advice, their plans and purposes], nor stands [submissive and inactive] in the path where sinners walk, nor sits down [to relax and rest] where the scornful [and the mockers] gather. But his delight and desire are in the law of the Lord, and on His law (the precepts, the instructions, the teachings of God) he habitually meditates (ponders and studies) by day and by night. And he shall be like a tree firmly planted [and tended] by the streams of water, ready to bring forth its fruit in its season; its leaf also shall not fade or wither; and everything he does shall prosper [and come to maturity].

Stay in the word and you will shine always.

Christ in you…

Christ in you, is your hope of glory :-

Royalpriest Fortunes Priestoffire

Amplified Bible: Galatians 2:20 I have been crucified with Christ [in Him I have shared His crucifixion]; it is no longer I who live, but Christ (the Messiah) lives in me; and the life I now live in the body I live by faith in (by adherence to and reliance on and complete trust in) the Son of God, Who loved me and gave Himself up for me.

Lazarus was dead and buried for four days and everyone thought that was the end of his story. But things changed the moment Jesus Christ got to the scene. I guess you all know how the story ended.

Amplified Bible: John 11:17,39-40,43-44 So when Jesus arrived, He found that he [Lazarus] had already been in the tomb four days. Jesus said, Take away the stone. Martha, the sister of the dead man, exclaimed, But Lord, by this time he [is decaying and] throws off an offensive odor, for he has been dead four days! Jesus said to her, Did I not tell you and promise you that if you would believe and rely on Me, you would see the glory of God?

Amplified Bible: John 11:43-44 …He shouted with a loud voice, Lazarus, come out! And out walked the man who had been dead, his hands and feet wrapped in burial cloths (linen strips), and with a [burial] napkin bound around his face. Jesus said to them, Free him of the burial wrappings and let him go.

A closed book of Lazarus’ life was reopened by the presence of Jesus Christ.

There is no hopeless situation for a Christian. Our story is different from that of Lazarus. We are not waiting for Jesus Christ to show up because we already have Him dwelling in us. Christ is in you 24/7 … Do you know what that means?

It’s now possible to live a life of victory everyday. It’s now possible to win all the battles you may encounter because you are not alone.

Amplified Bible: Romans 8:31 What then shall we say to [all] this? If God is for us, who [can be] against us? [Who can be our foe, if God is on our side?]

I urge you people of God, lets take advantage of the presence of Jesus Christ in our lives to dominate in all we do. You can never live a low life with Him guiding you daily.

That life of your dreams is now possible. Remember Jesus once walked on water; expect the unexpected in your life.

1 Corinthians 2:9 …”What no eye has seen, nor ear heard, nor the heart of man imagined, is what God has prepared for those who love Him”

All you have to do now is live by His Word. Let Him be the captain of your life and you will never perish nomatter the kind of storms which may come against your boat of life. You will overcome always…

Amplified Bible: Colossians 1:26-27 The mystery of which was hidden for ages and generations [from angels and men], but is now revealed to His holy people (the saints), To whom God was pleased to make known how great for the Gentiles are the riches of the glory of this mystery, which is Christ within and among you, the Hope of glory.

You can’t win without God:-

Amplified Bible: Romans 8:31 What then shall we say to [all] this? If God is for us, who [can be] against us? [Who can be our foe, if God is on our side?]

Goliath was a well trained warrior who caused terror in the camp of the Israelites. King Saul and his soldiers were reduced to nothing every time Goliath challenged them for a fight. For forty days he verbally attacked the Israelites and nobody dared to raise even a finger against him until the day the young shepherd boy David showed up.

Amplified Bible :1 Samuel 17:10-11 And the Philistine said, I defy the ranks of Israel this day; give me a man, that we may fight together. When Saul and all Israel heard those words of the Philistine, they were dismayed and greatly afraid.

David challenged the giant Goliath. David was just a small boy but had God on his side, I guess you all know how the story ended. A well trained man with a lot of experience in the battlefield was killed by a young boy who didn’t even have any experience [It was David’s first fight]. Goliath with all his great physique was defeated because he didn’t have God on his side.

1 Samuel 17:45-47 Then said David to the Philistine, You come to me with a sword, a spear, and a javelin, but I come to you in the name of the Lord of hosts, the God of the ranks of Israel, Whom you have defied. This day the Lord will deliver you into my hand, and I will smite you and cut off your head… for the battle is the Lord’s, and He will give you into our hands.

Amplified Bible :1 Samuel 17:50-51 So David prevailed over the Philistine with a sling and with a stone, and struck down the Philistine and slew him. When the Philistines saw that their mighty champion was dead, they fled.

Life without God on your side will never be easy. Learn from the story of Goliath. Have God on your side if you want to win the battles of life. I urge you this day; never face your life alone. Engage God into your daily affairs and no mountain would be too high for you to climb.

That life of your dreams is very possible, make the right choice today . Walk with God every second of your life and you will see the glory of God in all you will do..

You can’t be defeated with God backing you.

Surrender to the will of God…

Surrender to the will of God:-
Royalpriest Fortunes Priestoffire.

Amplified Bible: Jeremiah 29:11 For I know the thoughts and plans that I have for you, says the Lord, thoughts and plans for welfare and peace and not for evil, to give you hope in your final outcome.

Amplified Bible: Jonah 1:1-2 Now the word of the Lord came to Jonah son of Amittai, saying, Arise, go to Nineveh, that great city, and proclaim against it, for their wickedness has come up before Me.

We all know the story of Jonah, God had sent him to preach in Ninevah but Jonah thought to flee to Tarshish. He never reached it because God caused him to end up in the belly of the fish.

Amplified Bible :Jonah 1:12,15,17 And [Jonah] said to them, Take me up and cast me into the sea; so shall the sea become calm for you, for I know that it is because of me that this great tempest has come upon you. So they took up Jonah and cast him into the sea, and the sea ceased from its raging. Now the Lord had prepared and appointed a great fish to swallow up Jonah. And Jonah was in the belly of the fish three days and three nights.

I don’t know your story but are you following God’s will for your life? If you are willing and obedient you will eat the best of the land (Isaiah 1:19).

Start today, try to discover God’s plans and purpose for your life and do it.

Many people are in unpleasant circumstances in their lives today because of their failures to follow the will of God.

Jonah had to spend three days and three nights in the belly of the fish for his disobedience…Let that not be your story also…

God loves you and desires the best for you, follow His will for your life and you will shine in all seasons.

God loves you…

God loves you:-
Royalpriest Fortunes Priestoffire

Amplified Bible :John 3:16 For God so greatly loved and dearly prized the world that He [even] gave up His only begotten (unique) Son, so that whoever believes in (trusts in, clings to, relies on) Him shall not perish (come to destruction, be lost) but have eternal (everlasting) life.

When the devil and other angels messed up there was no plan of redemption for them but the moment Adam and Eve sinned God had to come on earth looking for them in the garden ( Genesis 3). That was a sign of His love for us.

God loves us more than He loves any of His other creations. We are made in His image and likeness (Genesis 1:26). We mean a lot to God…

Psalms 8:4 What is man, that thou art mindful of him? and the son of man, that thou visitest him?

God even sacrificed His Only Son for us so that we may have that same life which He has. You are more than what the world says you are…

Psalms 82:6 I have said, Ye are gods; and all of you are children of the most High.

John 15:13 Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends.

Don’t look down upon yourself. People may reject or despise you but don’t be moved there is someone greater than those in this world who loves and cares for you unconditionally.

John 15:19 If ye were of the world, the world would love his own: but because ye are not of the world, but I have chosen you out of the world, therefore the world hateth you.

You are nolonger of this world. Don’t think you are nothing. You are not cheap. You are worthy the blood of Jesus. Everyday be conscious of these truth.

Galatians 2:20 I am crucified with Christ: nevertheless I live; yet not I, but Christ liveth in me: and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by the faith of the Son of God, who loved me, and gave himself for me.

God cares for you. Never be discouraged by what the world may say about you. Seek God more and you will enjoy the best of the land.

Psalms 91:14 Because he hath set his love upon me, therefore will I deliver him: I will set him on high, because he hath known my name.

You are not stuck , God is with you:-
Royalpriest Fortunes Priestoffire

Exodus 14:14 The LORD shall fight for you, and ye shall hold your peace.

There is a story in the bible which strengthens me a lot, the story about the Israelites on their journey to Cannan. The Israelites had just been delivered out of Egypt and were heading to the promised land, but then they got stuck at the Red Sea . They had nowhere to go ,the Egyptians were in hot pursuit. The Israelites were really troubled and they cried to Moses who then called unto God ( Exodus 14).

Exodus 14:10 And when Pharaoh drew nigh, the children of Israel lifted up their eyes, and, behold, the Egyptians marched after them; and they were sore afraid: and the children of Israel cried out unto the LORD. 14:11 And they said unto Moses, Because there were no graves in Egypt, hast thou taken us away to die in the wilderness? wherefore hast thou dealt thus with us, to carry us forth out of Egypt? 14:12 Is not this the word that we did tell thee in Egypt, saying, Let us alone, that we may serve the Egyptians? For it had been better for us to serve the Egyptians, than that we should die in the wilderness.

As long as you are born again , there is no hopeless situation for you. God is always with you . Call unto Him when life becomes complicated for you and He will help you through. He loves you and will never forsake you.

Hebrews 13:5 …, I will never leave thee, nor forsake thee.

Moses called unto God and the Israelites were helped out of their situation. When you are faced with difficult circumstances don’t waste your time crying. Your tears will never change anything. The Isrealites cried but that didn’t open the Red sea or stop the Egyptians who were coming to destroy them.

Isaiah 65:24 And it shall come to pass, that before they call, I will answer; and while they are yet speaking, I will hear.

You are never alone. Nothing can bring you down. Just keep yourself connected to heaven and you will shine in all circumstances. No matter how hard things may get around you call unto God , nothing is too hard for Him.

You can never be stuck, God is indeed with you.

Psalms 23:1 The LORD is my shepherd; I shall not want. 23:4 Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me.

Don’t make a hole in the hegde around you…

Don’t make a hole in the hedge around you :-
Royalpriest Fortunes Priestoffire

Job 1:10 Hast not thou made an hedge about him, and about his house, and about all that he hath on every side? thou hast blessed the work of his hands, and his substance is increased in the land.

Amplified Bible John 10:10 The thief comes only in order to steal and kill and destroy. I came that they may have and enjoy life, and have it in abundance (to the full, till it overflows).

The text on our opening scripture proves to us that there is a hedge around every Christian and that hedge is used to protect us from enemies who may want to destroy us or rob us of our destiny.

When the devil wanted to destroy Job he had to first ask for approval from God since the hedge around Job was intact and Satan failed to gain entrance.

Now my question to you as an individual, *are there no holes on your hedge?* A life of sin breaks the hedge and causes the devil to have access to you.

1 Peter 5:8 Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour:

Don’t entertain sin in your life. Abide in the presence of God and the hedge around you would be impenetrable .Judas Iscariot’s manner of life opened the door for the devil to attack him and Judas lost a great future which was destined for him.

Ecclesiastes 10:8 He that diggeth a pit shall fall into it; and whoso breaketh an hedge, a serpent shall bite him.

Many people missed their great lives because of the openings they made on the hedge around them and now they wish if life had a reset button.

Observe your life and begin to close the holes which you may have opened on the hedge around you.

Mend those holes by confessing all your sins to God and surrendering your life to Him.

God has put a hedge of protection around you. Don’t break it.
