Pray Until Victory

I Samuel 1:12-19.

There are two key major words in the above topic. Pray and victory. One leads to another.
Pray: to pray is to communicate with God.
          to pray is to ask God what you need.
          to pray is to request from God.
          to pray is to petition God. 1 Samuel 1:27.
Though, there are many definitions for this but i decide use the above in this way.
Then, what is victory? In one word it us 'triumph'.
God expects all believers to pray. He even commanded us to call unto Him. Jer 33:3. It is interesting that God is worthy to pray to. Why? He has what it takes to be prayed unto e.g.
>In ability, He has it exceedingly abundantly above all. Eph 3:20.
>In capability, nothing is too hard for Him. Jer 32:27.
>In strength or power, He is the possessor of it. Psalm 62:11. etc.

God wants us to pray unto Him and He is ever ready to answer us but not all believers receive what they ask for. WHY?
1, Some ask Amiss. James 4:3.
2, Some ask in doubt. James 1:6-8…

It Is Not Too Late Part 1

Psalms 45:7
"Thou lovest righteousness, and hatest wickedness: therefore God, thy God, hath anointed thee with the oil of gladness above thy fellows."
Pulpit Bible commentary.

The topic sounds attractive but our introduction will take another dimension.
According to our text, we discover that righteousness is needed if you want to excel.
What is righteousness? It simply means obedient. Though, there are many definitions for it but i decided to simplify it like that.
Psalm 48:10c says "Thy right hand is full of righteousness".
Mathew 25:33-40 tell us that He calls those at the right hand righteous because they obeyed the word of God as it is written in Deut 15:11. The question is "do you obey the word of God?"
Many people are killer. Bible says in Exodus 20:13 "thou shall not kill". You may be surprised by this statement but it is real. Not until you carry gun to shoot that you kill neither when you stab someone with knife that you have killed. Y…

Let My People Go Part 2

Exodus 3:7-10 In the part 1 of this message, we had made it clear to us that "let my people go was not a joking statement" God meant what He said. We told us what to learn from this statement. Let my people go.
Points to discuss; Who was speaking here? To whom was this statement? Who were God's people? Where were God's people? Why were they in that place? Why must they go? etc.
1) Who was speaking? God was the personality speaking in this passage. With the little i know about Him. We know He is Merciful, Kind, Compassionate, in fact Psalm 103 says " He is slow to anger', but i also know that He is dangerous to confront. Hebrew 12: 29 says "He is a consuming fire" Let me be sincere with you, no matter how mad a dog may be. it knows fire when it sees one. You can either be for Him or against Him. If you are not saved, you are against Him. He can't fight for you. He can even fight you. Give your life to Christ today. Tomorrow may be too late. Con…

Dangerous Enemy

James 4:17
"Therefore to him that knoweth to do good, and doeth it not, to him it is sin."
Pulpit Bible commentary
A gospel yoruba singer sang a song "Pariwo oso ni won ba, ariwo,ariwo. Pariwo aje ni won ba ariwo,ariwo. Olori ogun to nja o, owa ninu re iwani.i.e don't blame witches and wizards too much. The major enemy you have is inside you. 'character'.
Many of us fail to ask certain questions from ourselves.We notice, we have prayed, fasted and probably visited many mountains yet there is no desired results. Why can't you ask why? Why is my prayer not answered.
The answer is: there are last down rules you must follow to get answer from God.
1, John 15:16 says you must win souls and get answer to your prayers.
2, Job 36:11 and Isaiah 1:19 say you need to obey and serve God before you can eat the good of the land.
3, Proverb 3:9-10 tell us to pay our first fruits, then our barns will be filled with plenty and there will be new opportunity.
4, Ephesians …

Don't Fight Alone

Judges 1:1-4
It is a pity that we permitted certain situations to prevail over us due to the steps we took towards such matter. In the above Bible passage, the children of Israel were confronted with a serious battle but they didn't move an inch until they inquired from God. You know what that means. Seek God's face on that situation before you take step.
In verse 2, God said Judah shall go up. Why Judah? He was not the first born. He was not the most skillful person among Jacob children. Why him then? You have to know the meaning of Judah first. Judah means "praise". That means, in this matter praise ME first. Let your praise go up to Me. Let ME see that you are not elevating that challenges above ME. Eph 5:20 also support this by saying in all things, give thanks.

You cannot fight alone.
 Judah went with Simeon. Get a partner to fight the battle of your life. Add prayers and fasting. Acquire all you need. Knowledge, skills, be educated etc.
