For two weeks, I have been sharing with the First Love Church on how to make the prophecies spoken over your life come to pass. Today, I would also like to share with you all on how to let the prophecies spoken over your life come to pass.
“And all the people said unto Samuel, Pray for thy servants unto the Lord thy God, that we die not: for we have added unto all our sins this evil, to ask us a king. And Samuel said unto the people, Fear not: ye have done all this wickedness: yet turn not aside from following the Lord, but serve the Lord with all your heart; And turn ye not aside: for then should ye go after vain things, which cannot profit nor deliver; for they are vain.” (1 Samuel 12:19-21)
I have not yet found a good reason not to serve the Lord, no matter what anybody says. We must have no apologies for serving the Lord. You must also serve God because he delivers. I like the prayer of the Catholics that says, “Pray for us sinners now and in the hour our death”. It is a good prayer. In the hour of your death what profit is there with all your money, houses, degrees and all your goals? In the hour of your death, only what is profitable and what can deliver you will be useful.
“For the Lord will not forsake his people for his great name’s sake: because it hath pleased the Lord to make you his people. 23 Moreover as for me, God forbid that I should sin against the Lord in ceasing to pray for you: but I will teach you the good and the right way:” (1 Samuel 12:22-23)
Prayers can keep you from dying. It is God who delivers you but it is also good to grow to the point of believing in prayer and in the prayers of God’s prophets. Like the Bible says, the prayer of a righteous man avails much (James 5:16). There are prayers that keep you from dying and all the prayers that you hear being spoken over you represent great deliverance in your life. When you are a person of faith, you learn to attribute things to God’s grace over your life. Learn to believe in prayer and the prayers of your prophet.
So today, I want to continue speaking blessings over you because the words that are being spoken are prophetically turning you into a great person. You cannot be the same based on the words that are being prophesied continuously over your life.
“Put not forth thyself in the presence of the king, and stand not in the place of great men:” (Proverbs 25:6). You cannot make yourself great. When you are going to be great is determined by the Lord. God is about to choose you for certain great positions and places! When words are spoken over your life, do not mock them and trivialize them “Now therefore be ye not mockers, lest your bands be made strong: for I have heard from the Lord God of hosts a consumption, even determined upon the whole earth” (Isaiah 28:22). Do not be a mocker! As you read these words, do not sit there asking “when will the steps come”. It is important that you do not only believe in the steps that are given but also the written prophecies being spoken over your life.
Now there is one key of greatness that I would like to share with you today and it is from the book of Esther. “For Mordecai was great in the king’s house, and his fame went out throughout all the provinces: for this man Mordecai waxed greater and greater” (Esther 9:4). Mordecai was an unlikely person who grew to become great! When you read the book of Esther, you will find out about his life. Mordecai’s greatness was due to his loyalty and faithfulness to the king. So today, believe me when I say to you that one of the things that makes you great is loyalty. Usually, people who have not built anything do not understand the importance of loyalty to the highest authority. Learn to be faithful to the highest authority that is there, whether the bank, political party, school or church. You will be called many names such as stooge, snitch, wiki leaks, teacher’s pet and more but always remember that your loyalty will bring about your greatness.
