Many ask the question; how can I change my current predicament and align my life to God’s great plans for me? Is this all there is for me to have or enjoy? I have a strong desire to serve God more, minister more effectively, live in a better home, regain my health but it looks like the circumstances are changing me rather than me changing them. How can I truly take charge of my life?
These questions have been answered in the book of the month for April. It’s entitled ‘Recreating your World’ by Pastor Chris Oyakhilome. It’s a must have, must read and must imbibe for every member of this platform. One of the key lessons in this book is that your words have an inherent creative ability which once harnessed, will produce the same results that the Word of God in God’s mouth produces. We see it in the account of creation;
In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. The earth was formless and empty, and darkness covered the deep waters. And the Spirit of God was hovering over the surface of the waters.
Then God said, “Let there be light,” and there was light. (Genesis 1:1-3
Our man of God Pastor Choolwe further explains that God said ‘Light in me, BE’ and light came forth. Meaning the light that was produced came out of God by the agency of His Spirit rather than from the outside. This is consistent with the teaching of the Lord Jesus who said;
A good man out of the good treasure of the heart bringeth forth good things: and an evil man out of the evil treasure bringeth forth evil things. But I say unto you, That every idle word that men shall speak, they shall give account thereof in the day of judgment. For by thy words thou shalt be justified, and by thy words thou shalt be condemned. (Matthew 12:35-37
Wow. This means that as a Christian, you have what it takes to change your life because;
1. There is a treasure of good things in you. This deposit was made when you became born again
2. The same Holy Spirit that was present at Creation lives in you without measure. John 3:34
3. You have the dynamic ability to effect changes Acts 1:8
So go ahead and bring forth from the treasure in you. Focus your attention on praying in that direction today. Remember to participate in our GEC blog and Yookos Prayer sessions
with Pastor Chris. Attend mid week service and bring many others along.
Have a great day
