Men and brethren, you must Refuse to Surrender to depression and lack. You must know that delay in your miracle manifestation is not Denial but waiting for In His Time and sometimes answers are delayed to make us more dependent on Him whose power is the absolute power. Therefore, Heaven is looking to recruit men and women who are believers of great tomorrow. Men and women who will become the raiser of the dead and the lover of God from this commission. Heaven is looking for men and women who are intercessors, men who will stand in the gap for their families, for their village and for their nation in 2019 as solutions to collective and individual problems. Today, ask God for that grace in understanding His timing and empowerment as a warrior, doing great things for heaven and Refusing to Surrender to negatives, cheap talk and cheap life. May you remain connected to Heaven.
We have gossip enough. We are not called by God to be comforter of problems but to set men and women free from captivity, to lay hands on the sick and they shall recover, to speak to the mountains of problems and see the mountain change position, If thou wouldest believe and if you Refuse to Surrender. We are called to bring out men from the pit, to raise heavenly connected and rugged men who are ready to storm the kingdom of darkness as soldiers. John 11:12. Today, receive grace to connect to divine wonder in Jesus name.
What do you do when you are Praying and there is No Answer or when your answers are delayed?
The Scripture says that Jesus deliberately delayed in going to Bethany to visit Lazarus. “So, when He heard that he was sick, He stayed two more days in the place where He was” (John 11:6). Meanwhile Lazarus died and was buried. Remember that Lazarus family were the beloved, they were favoured, they were cherished but got disappointment when their son, their brother, their hope for a family extension was sick for many days and the Master whom they cared for and cared for and who cared for them did not honour their invitation as they expected. They were praying and there was no answer and their deliverer delayed his coming. How do you think they felt that the master whom they love refused to show up and on time?
I understood that Jesus wanted to pay them back for all the care because God does not owe any man; he wanted to take care of the surrounding problems. Sometimes we are loved by God and He just doesn’t show up when we think we need Him the most. Let me emphasis that in the midst of waiting for the coming of the master, Lazarus was dead – meaning the problem was multiplied.
Sometimes in the midst of solving one problem, another problem comes up and another, and we become totally discouraged; that was the picture of the dead Lazarus. That was the feeling I had when I lost my sister, until God showed me that she is in a better place. Sometimes to us, our reasoning becomes, ‘I am finished but to God I have just started; to man, I am now the laughing stock but to God men shall celebrate you when they see the miracles; to man the problem has lasted, even your enemies feel you are wasting time calling on him, because they are alive, they are richer, they are more educated and they see you the way they saw Lazarus; dead but Jesus said, we are going to change his story. Here me, your Change has come! Your Glorious Timing is now for you to enjoy. If thou wouldest believe and if you must Refuse to Surrender. May God visit you today with his mercies.
Let me give you three things to trust.
Number One: Trust God’s will.
Number Two: Trust God’s power
Number Three: Trust God’s timing.
We always want to run ahead. You know, we want God to do everything right now but God is adjusting history to His purposes. And God knows what He’s doing. This miracle was for the glory of God, not primarily for the life of Lazarus. I mean, it was not big thing for Lazarus; he’s going to die again anyway. Moses said to God, “I pray You, show me Your glory.” Exodus 33:18. And God raised him up.
Right where you are, you must fight back, Refuse to Surrender, Dont allow doubt and unbelief and by thinking God won’t help you because you haven’t done everything right. Or believing that God is willing to help other people but not you like Martha did. But God doesn’t expect perfection from us, he expects us to be honest. God works in our lives through faith. He wants us to trust Him, believe in Him, have faith in Him, and have a hopeful, positive attitude. He wants us to expect Him to do good things in our lives. “Jesus saith unto her, Said I not unto thee, that, if thou wouldest believe, thou shouldest see the glory of God?” John 11:40. Someone here is blessed. You are next to testify in grand style.
Every day of 2019 you need to say, “Something good is going to happen to me today. I can hardly wait to see what God is going to do in my life today!” And you especially need to speak this when the devil is trying to flood your mind with doubts.
The way you fight the devil is by opening your mouth, speaking in tongues and saying what God says. Don’t just let the devil use your mind as a garbage dump. Your Lazarus can be your career, your marriage, your business or education, it could be your happiness or your Christian life; whatever it is, it must surely come back to life in the name of Jesus Christ. Let the stone be rolled away for your Lazarus to come back to life. And Jesus said, “loose him and let him go”, so hear me! According to the word of the Lord this day; whosoever, whatsoever that is responsible for the life of your Lazarus shall not experience peace and shall have sleepless night until your Lazarus, your miracle is loosed and let go in the name that is above every other name, in Jesus name. Your Lazarus shall bounce back. “Then many of the Jews which came to Mary, and had seen the things which Jesus did, believed on him.” John 10:45. “Much people of the Jews therefore knew that he was there: and they came not for Jesus’ sake only, but that they might see Lazarus also, whom he had raised from the dead” John 12:9.
While Mary, Martha and Lazarus honoured Jesus with a dinner. Be warned that as others are celebrating you, there are people who will try to cut short your celebration. Judas objected. But some refuse to be a Martha (server), Mary (worshiper) or Lazarus (testifier) John 12:6 “This he said, not that he cared for the poor; but because he was a thief, and had the bag, and bare what was put therein.” Judas was a thief; he stole from other church members. For every Martha, Mary and Lazarus, there is a Judas, who take, take, take and never give. Judas was close to Jesus physically, but not spiritually. Judas took and benefited from the gifts of others, yet seldom, if ever gave of his own, only criticized. Henceforth, men shall celebrate you. People shall no longer see your limitations but rather your potentials. All your secret heart desires shall be actualized because God has raised you up. I decree, no matter the multiplication of your problems and no matter your past mistakes, God will grant you supernatural commanding victories this 2019.
Concluding Prayer of Refuse to Surrender: Awesomely awesome God, thank you for connecting me In your Time to Calvary dividing. You have raise me up to enviable living, no matter what is happening around me, help me to believe you. I Refuse to Surrender to depression and lack. May I not conclude that I am forgotten. Father, respond to my faith and connect me to my destiny helpers this January in Jesus’ powerful name I pray, Amen
