I heard, “My Spirit remaineth among you — Fear ye not.”
There is a weight of The Glory of God that is released upon hearts in this season. This Glory has built up a resistance against the wiles of the enemy.
As we are leaning on The Word, we are experiencing an energy within which is helping in the fulfillment of his counsel.
There is a misconception that has caused a lot of people to be slack in seeing God use them to bless others, either through healing or other ways.
This misconception says, what you have not worked in, you cant make it work in other peoples lives. Or let’s say it this way, what you have not experienced, you cannot give to others.
Now this unscriptural idea has made a lot of people to fall back from being a blessing to others, thinking,
how can I see her healed, since I have not being able to experience divine healing myself?
How can I make anyone rich, since I am not rich myself?
This kind of idea promotes selfishness.
Now let me say this to you. You may be fighting a series of illnesses and be used by God, to see miracles in the same things you are having challenges in.
Now we all are familiar with the story of Abraham and Sarah. We are told before the promise came to pass, his body was dead (impotent) and Sarah’s womb was also dead. He was walking around exercising his faith without seeing results.
“And being not weak in faith, he considered not his own body now dead, when he was about an hundred years old, neither yet the deadness of Sara’s womb,” Romans 4:19.
Yet this man who had not seen the manifestation of God’s promise upon his life, prayed for someone with the same problem and got them healed.
“So Abraham prayed unto God: and God healed Abimelech, and his wife, and his maidservants; and they bare children. For the LORD had fast closed up all the wombs of the house of Abimelech, because of Sarah Abraham’s wife,” Genesis 20:17-18.
A man struggling to have a child, the womb of his wife closed up, prayed and got another man healed and opened the wombs of an entire household!
Abraham did not say, “LORD, let me experience this first before I can pray for someone else.”
That act of obedience opened up something. Remember, The Bible was not written with chapters. They have been included by translators to help us identity scriptures.
Why have I brought that up? Because we are told in the next chapter:
“And the LORD visited Sarah as he had said, and the LORD did unto Sarah as he had spoken. For Sarah conceived, and bare Abraham a son in his old age, at the set time of which God had spoken to him,” Genesis 21:1-2 emphasis added.
Observe the word ‘and‘ at the start of the above verse. It is suggesting a conjuction, that what is to be said, is connected to the pretext.
What he prayed to happen for others while he was still not in possession of it, came immediately upon him after the prayer.
Don’t let the enemy shut you out by any form of disqualification. If you have not seen it happen in your life yet, get in happening in others. It’s a doorway to seeing it happen in your life.
You can be poor, but making others rich. Your poverty means nothing — you, are not the source, God is the source. You are just a channel.
God can use you to produce billionaires in His Kingdom — even in your low state!
We are not told in scriptures that the apostles had multitudes of horses or camels or a great quantity of gold and silver. But we are told:
“As sorrowful, yet always rejoicing; as poor, yet making many rich; as having nothing, and yet possessing all things,”2 Corinthians 6:10.
You are not disqualified! Be a blessing and encounter more blessings!
In an encounter with the LORD, I saw Haggai Chapter 2 displayed and these verses were highlighted to me. The LORD is Fulfilling these verses upon The Body of Christ in this season:
“Who is left among you that saw this house in her first glory? and how do ye see it now? is it not in your eyes in comparison of it as nothing? Y et now be strong, O Zerubbabel, saith the LORD; and be strong, O Joshua, son of Josedech, the high priest; and be strong, all ye people of the land, saith the LORD, and work: for I am with you, saith the LORD of hosts: According to the word that I covenanted with you when ye came out of Egypt, so my spirit remaineth among you: fear ye not. For thus saith the LORD of hosts; Yet once, it is a little while, and I will shake the heavens, and the earth, and the sea, and the dry land; and I will shake all nations, and the desire of all nations shall come: and I will fill this house with glory, saith the LORD of hosts. The silver is mine, and the gold is mine, saith the LORD of hosts. The glory of this latter house shall be greater than of the former, saith the LORD of hosts: and in this place will I give peace, saith the LORD of hosts,” Haggai 2:3-9.
Blessings in Christ,
