Deut 2:2-3 says:"And the LORD spake unto me, saying, Ye have compassed this mountain long enough: turn you northward"
The Lord is saying that you’ve been in this life situation long enough. It may be in your finances, marriage,health, job, calling , ministry, residency, relationships, etc. God said you need a change now !
One of the greatest changes in the bible was found in the book of Ezekiel 37:9 ,It says: "Also He said to me, “Prophesy to the breath, prophesy, son of man, and say to the breath, ‘Thus says the Lord God: “Come from the four winds, O breath, and breathe on these slain, that they may live.”
There was a wind of change and the dry bones lives again.God is willing to bring that wind of change into our lifes today, but are we ready?
The Bible mentioned two great people who were desperate for the move of God in their lifes.The first one was Zacheaus . The book of Luke 19 vs 4 says:"So he ran ahead and climbed a sycamore-fig tree to see him, since Jesus was coming that way".
I think Zacchaeus was so motivated to see Jesus because there was a great need in his life that drove him up that tree. Something within him desperately hoped that seeing Jesus would make a difference in his life.
The other person is jabez:
The bible says in 1 Chronicles 4:9 ,“Jabez was more honorable than his brothers; and his mother called his name Jabez, saying, ‘Because I bore him in PAIN.’”
Jabez prayed a prayer that changed the meaning of his name. Jabez asked God, in verse 10 saying “Keep me from harm so that it might not bring me PAIN!” He knew that his name was drenched in the word ‘PAIN’ and he was desperate to change it. God saw his willingness and his situation was changed for better .
THINGS THAT CAN HINDER CHANGES INCLUDES :
A. BITTERNESS (Heb12-15)
Bitterness is one of the most destructive and dangerous of all human emotions and it makes someone to be filled with what can’t happen instead of What can happen.
B. UNBELIEF (Mark 6:5-6)
If you have unbelief in your heart, God can’t help you have a change .
Everything is someone else’s fault. We need to admit our faults and be honest with God just like Zacheaus.
D. UNFORGIVENESS (Matt.5:23-24)
Unforgiveness is a sin that hinders prayers and creates static in a believer’s relationship with God.
WHAT WE NEED TO DO
A.Be desperate for a change
B.forgive and forget,let go and let God
C.Be motivated for a change
D.Have a vision and be focused
E. Be a friend of God and Have faith in Him
F.Pray until something happens.(push) job 14:14
The only one who can delay your blessing is you.We need to let go and let God.We need to be a people who are desperate for the move of God in our life.
If you are facing any impossible situation and you are at the edge of loosing hope ,I am glad to say to you today that "impossibilities are the platforms upon which God operates the most".
Job said in job 14 :14
"All the days of my appointed time I will wait till my change come".
Beloveth, you have come too far to loose hope. Wait on the Lord !
A positive change has come!
Please give your life to Jesus today by saying this prayer if you haven't done so before.
(Thank you Jesus for dying for me on the cross, I confess my sins today , forgive me Lord and give me the power to sin no more. In Jesus name. Amen.)
