MEDITATIONS FROM JOHN CHAPTER 14
The Lord wants to use His people mightily in this hour with signs and wonders. Satan thinks He can stop the growth of the Kingdom of God by persecution but God will empower His people to perform mighty miracles and confirm His Word with signs following. All those who are hungry for God and desire to be used by Him will be blessed with a mighty anointing to bring deliverance to the captives of demonic oppression.
The Lord wants His people to obey His commandments diligently and demonstrate their genuine love for Him. The proof of passion lies in practicing His precepts. The Lord will shower His blessings on all those who would take His commandments seriously and obey them carefully. He will reveal himself to them and dwell with them with His rich presence. Let us be diligent in obeying the Lord in this New Year and enjoy His abundant blessings .
The Lord promises that He will do whatever we ask in His name so that the Father will be glorified in the Son . He wants our joy to be full by receiving what we ask from Him. We must be careful to ensure that our petitions will bring glory to God. We must avoid asking anything with evil and selfish motives that will bring dishonour to the Lord. The Lord will surely grant the desires of His people when we seek His blessings with a pure heart. Let us reach out to God to receive all the blessings that He has promised to us in this hour.
The Lord is preparing a place for His children and He will come back to take them to be with Him forever. The Lord wants His children to realize that their citizenship is in heaven. We are only strangers and pilgrims in this world. The Lord does not want His children to be so attached to the material things of this world that they lose their passion for the Kingdom of God. He wants to remind us that we do not belong to this world although we live in this world. Let us focus on the things of God in this hour with the realization that the Lord Himself is preparing a place for us in eternity.
The Lord wants His children to be filled with His peace in this hour. The peace which the Lord gives is not the peace which the world gives which is dependent on external circumstances. The Lord wants us to experience His own peace which He had in his heart when he lived in this world. He wants us to enjoy His Divine peace even when we face persecution and tribulation . We must rejoice in the Lord always. Let us not allow our hearts to be troubled and filled with fear in this hour.
