KINDS OF ANSWER TO PRAYERS(WAIT!)

       
  There are some things we request from GOD in prayer that we are not spiritually grown enough to have. Though HE desires to makes us have it, but because HE knows we are not grown enough to have it, HE will not give us, because HE will not give us what will destroy us. No matter how loving a father is, he will not give the key of his car to his three years old son to have a ride, no matter how long or how loud his son ask, even if he cries. He will wait for his son to grow, to be mature enough to drive before giving him his car key to have a ride. In the same vein, GOD will not give you what you are not spiritually matured to have, HE will rather wait for you to grow, to be matured enough to have it. But most people are not patient, they are not willing to wait. 
  One of my mentors, Pastor Poju Oyemade(Covenant Christian Centre) said; “The difference between the time we pray and the time we receive answer is “PATIENCE”. In some cases, the time we pray is not the time we receive answer, because GOD will not grant any request that will destroy us, because HE loves us so much and do not want to lose us. That is why the scriptures admonish us to imitate those who have received answer to their prayers through PATIENCE~Hebrews 6:12. But this is where most of us fail. We are not willing to be patient, neither are we taking responsibility for our spiritual growth. So, we conclude that GOD is not faithful to prayer and we look for alternative means, which leads to destruction. 
  Let us round up this way today on Wisdom Bank; HAVE YOU BEEN PRAYING AND NOT GETTING ANSWERS? ALL YOU NEED TO DO IS TO BE PATIENT AND FEED MORE ON THE WORD OF GOD WHICH IS ABLE TO BUILD YOU UP(Acts 20:32), TO MAKE YOU GROW SPIRITUALLY. GOD IS WILLING, ABLE AND READY, BUT MAKE YOURSELF READY TOO…BE WISE…!!!

KINDS OF ANSWER TO PRAYER(NO!)

       
  GOD is your father, and HE is a loving father. Every father answers his children and grant their requests, but there are three answers parents give to their children. Never you think that GOD does not hear your prayers of faith, but there are three kinds of answers GOD give to us too. No responsible father will give a gun to his child to use against someone, no matter how long the child cry. In the same vein, there are some things we ask from GOD that HE will never give us, no matter how fervent we pray. Even if we fast for hundred days or climb the highest mountain, HIS answer will be “NO!”, because HE knows it will put us into trouble. Therefore, GOD hears and answers all prayers of faith, but if our request will put us into trouble, HIS answer will be an emphatic NO!
  The scriptures testifies that we pray, and we do not receive, because we do not pray according to the will of GOD~James 4:3. Most of the time, we pray with the wrong motives. For example; if you are praying for financial blessing so that you can buy the most expensive car and show all the people that have turned you down that you have arrived, to become proud and order people around, your answer from GOD will be an emphatic “NO!” If you are praying that GOD should put you in a position of power so that you can deal treacherously with the people that have dealt treacherously with you, the answer you will get is a capital “NO!” If your motive for prayer is to revenge, oppress, be proud and so on, the answer from GOD will be “NO”, and you will think GOD does not answer prayers, not knowing that HE has answer you, but you are not getting your request because your motive is wrong.
  Let us round up this way on Wisdom Bank today; GOD ANSWERS ALL PRAYERS OF FAITH, BUT HE SEARCHES THE HEART TO CHECK IF THE MOTIVES ARE RIGHT OR WRONG. PERHAPS YOU HAVE BEEN GETTING A “NO” TO YOUR PRAYERS, I WILL ADMONISH YOU TO SIT BACK AND THINK OF THE REASONS WHY YOU PRAY. PERHAPS, THEY MIGHT NOT BE ACCORDING TO THE WILL OF GOD…BE WISE…!!!

GOD ANDWERS PRAYERS ALWAYS!

  As far as GOD is concerned, there no such thing as un-answered prayer. HE is the one that invited you to communicate with HIM via prayer, with an assurance that HE will answer you(Jeremiah 33:3). JESUS also encouraged us to pray, and making us realise that there are no restrictions to prayer, as in, prayer is not for some set of people, but for everyone. HE said; “everyone that ask will receive”~Matthew 7:7-8. So prayer is not for some set of people, but for everyone, irrespective of religion, tradition, race or generation. But most people have concluded that GOD does not answer prayers because of their experiences. 
  Some people blame GOD for unfaithfulness to prayer, while some do not have the boldness to blame GOD at all, so they harbour inner confusion in them about prayer. That is why what we have these days are mostly church-goers, they just go to church as a tradition or a necessity, and see prayer as a church activity or as a routine. Please listen, Prayer is not a church activity, it is a means of communicating with GOD. Also take note that answer to prayer is not gotten by how loud you pray nor how long you pray, it is gotten by faith. If you do not have faith, GOD will not hear nor answer your prayers, because faith is what gets the attention of GOD.
  That is how far we will go on Wisdom Bank today. But go with these truth; THERE ARE THREE DIFFERENT KINDS OF ANSWERS TO PRAYER. JOIN US TOMORROW AS WE LOOK INTO THE THREE WAYS GOD ANSWERS PRAYERS. GOD ANSWERS PRAYERS ALWAYS, SO PRAY ALWAYS…BE WISE…!!!

THE FORCE OF RIGHT WORDS

TRENDING ON HIGHER GROUND FOR A GLORIOUS DESTINY. 

THE FORCE OF RIGHT WORDS(MICAH 2 vs10).

BY MOBOLAJI AKINTOLA
If you ask me what do I love most in the world? Without hesitation or thinking twice,I will tell you it is words, not just an ordinary, colorless, derogative or dead words, but constructive, inspirational, powerful and faith-filled words. If there is anything that made me to love Christianity, it’s nothing but simply the great and powerful statements in the Bible. Before I was born again, anybody that knows me, knows during my teens days, I never cherish going to church until I became twenty, though I am a cool, gentle and easy going type. When I eventually got born again, God gave me a Powerful word that has and will forever set me on course for an Higher Ground in life. God gave me that word via a Yoruba Proverb. He knew I will quickly understand that revelation because it’s my dialect and sees a renewable mind in me. God want to teach most of us great revelation by the things we are familiar with and that we can easily understand but our problem is that, we hold on to religion, church doctrine , dogma etc, thereby hindering the Holy Spirit to unveil or teach us great revelation that will catapult us to the Higher Ground He has ordained for us in every aspects of life.
The Yoruba Proverb and the right words God showed me that set me up on Higher Ground in life says; “A DEITY IF YOU CAN’T FAVOUR ME, LEAVE ME THE WAY YOU MET ME”. Yoruba translation says; “Osa bo le gbemi,se mi bo se bami. Believe me that Proverb squarely match up with Isaiah 45vs19, but God knows I was still a baby Christian then I didn’t know the scripture, yet He could still give me a revelation, words I can easily understand and relate with that will set me on Higher Ground. The meaning of that Proverb is that people believe in the idol, image and human god they made for themselves that bless and help them in challenges that’s what led to that Proverb. You know I told you, I don’t cherish Church early in life, God, then made me to understand that if those worshipping Idols and man made gods,could be bless and have uttermost believe in them, how much more God will not give us Christians divine health instead of healing, Prosperity,fruit of the womb, success in everything that concerns us.
That revelation really transformed my life, that’s why I could bold say without praying for it that till I will leave this earth I can’t be sick, I must be rich etc,and attain the Higher Ground that God has ordained me because,”A DEITY IF YOU CAN’T FAVOUR ME,LEAVE ME THE WAY YOU MET ME. Meaning God if you can’t give me my miracle children, job, spouse, visa, admission, healing etc, then leave me the way you met me. The god of Iron, Thunder, River, etc….are blessing their followers based on the level of there diabolical power, definitely you that you are not powerful but simply POWER. Should automatically bless us times hundred in a bigger way, that will indicate an Higher Ground order of blessing.
Many of us are expecting miracle and we all desire to attain the Higher Ground that God has ordained for us before the foundation of the earth, unfortunately, our Higher Ground desire seems afar and elusive simply because we haven’t grasp the RIGHT WORDS that will Propel us there or birthed. Many are praying for healing and deliverance but few ever knew God only has “Words for healing, Prosperity, Fruit of the womb etc.Job 6vs25 says,” How forceful are RIGHT WORDS!” Hebrew 1vs3 also says,”God upholds ALL THINGS(INCLUDING YOUR HIGHER GROUND DESIRES) But the question is that, Have you and I locate the RIGHT WORDS TO OUR HIGHER GROUND?

TRENDING ON A HIGHER GROUND FOR A GLORIOUS DESTINY.

TRENDING ON HIGHER GROUND FOR A GLORIOUS DESTINY.

BY MOBOLAJI AKINTOLA

Topic; THE PRAYER FACTOR(MICAH 2vs10).

            

  Oath Johnson Jr,said in the second stanza of the Hymn we have been exploring that; “His PRAYER and his aim is Higher Ground”. I maybe wrong but I believe 99.9% of human being on earth do pray. If not often, perhaps when needs arises in the past or in the future. No matter the religion, every human being knows there is someone that created and controls the affairs of the whole universe and the person is called GOD. By that knowledge, God himself created a spiritual platform whereby human being can contact Him, and as well communicate with Him which we all term PRAYER, irrespective of differences in religion, culture, race etc….
  Majority of people may not fully grasp my point thereby misinterpreting my opinion, or not understand the realm I am writing these message. It’s not new to get married, but are we PRAYING for Higher Ground concerning the marriage? Several people desire to have the fruit of the womb, but how many prospective father and mother are PRAYING for an outstanding children?
  One of the greatest request of an Higher Ground PRAYER is the Encounter between Elijah and his protégé named Elisha(2king 2 vs 9-10) says, “And so it was, when they had crossed over, that Elijah said to Elisha, Ask! what may I do for you, before I am taken away from you?” Elisha said; Please, “let a DOUBLE PORTION OF YOUR spirit BE UPON ME,” So he said, “You have asked a HARD THING(HIGHER GROUND). Nevertheless, if you see me when I am taken from you, IT SHALL BE SO FOR YOU”.
  It’s not necessary you agree with my opinion, but did you know that little Higher Ground request birthed the greatest miracle in the Bible and in the history of mankind? God has created the platform of prayer to take us to the Higher Ground He has ordained for us. In Jeremiah 33 vs 3 God says, we should call upon him He will answer us, and He will show us great and mighty things which we know not.
  Let me conclude today’s message by saying; “The Christians has the greatest advantage over every religion when it comes to the issue of PRAYER, I am not saying this because I am one, but simply given a statement of fact. But the question is how are we maximizing the advantage to it’s fullest thereby trending on the Higher Ground the Father has ordained for you and me?

GUYS, LET’S TALK!

                        
  Are you truly set for a relationship, or you are just in it because you are old enough to be in it, or because your friends are in it, or because it is trending in the society? Relationship will be an experience filled with frustration until you are qualified to be in it. Until Adam was qualified, GOD did not give HIM a woman. The first thing GOD gave to Adam was a JOB, NOT A WOMAN!!! Adam’s job was to keep the garden(manage the earth), to rule over all of the creations of GOD. That was Adam’s PURPOSE on earth. It was when GOD saw that Adam needed someone to assist him, that HE created Eve for Adam, to assist him in his job(Genesis 2:18). 
  Young man, before thinking of running a relationship, make sure you have defined your life, make sure you have discovered your purpose and you are living towards fulfilling purpose, thereby living a meaningful life. The time you use to run after ladies, if you use it to run after your purpose, ladies will automatically run after you. According to the arrangement of GOD, it is purpose before relationship, not relationship before purpose. When you discover your purpose and you are living a purpose-driven life, GOD will bring your own woman your way, just as HE did for Adam. 
  If you run into a relationship without a clear definition of your purpose, you will live an unfulfilled life, because you will do just anything, which will make you become just any man and no woman want to stay with “just any man”. In this generation, no woman want to stay with a man that cannot meet her needs. Even the Bible described such a man as being worst than an infidel(Inferior devil). Guys, let us tell ourselves the truth, in this generation, no lady will stay with you if you have nothing to offer. You must have a source of income(no matter how little). Even if you do not have a source income presently(some ladies may cope with it), but she must see potentials that will assure her of a great future before she stays.
  Wisdom Bank will round up this way; GUYS, BEFORE RUNNING INTO A RELATIONSHIP, ENSURE YOU HAVE DISCOVERED YOUR PURPOSE. RESPONSIBLE LADIES PREFER STAYING WITH A BROKE GUY THAT HAS A RICH FUTURE, TO STAYING WITH A RICH GUY THAT HAS A BROKE FUTURE. THEREFORE, INSTEAD OF SPENDING YOUR RESOURCES TO LOOK GOD NOW, INVEST IT INTO YOUR FUTURE, FOR YOUR FUTURE TO LOOK GOOD…BE WISE…!!!
