The Sacrifice of Faith

In order to enter into the fullness of destiny, we must obey kingdom laws that have been given to us. This principle is true regardless of the parties involved because God is a respecter of His Word…not people.

When God said that He was going to destroy the Israelites in the wilderness, Moses interceded on their behalf by saying, “Wherefore should the Egyptians speak, and say, For mischief did he bring them out, to slay them in the mountains, and to consume them from the face of the earth?

Turn from thy fierce wrath, and repent of this evil against thy people.” (Exo 32:12) Moses reminded God of His commitment in verse 13, “Remember Abraham, Isaac, and Israel, thy servants, to whom thou sworest by thine own self, and saidst unto them, I will multiply your seed as the stars of heaven, and all this land that I have spoken of will I give unto your seed, and they shall inherit it forever.

The Scriptures record that the Lord repented of the evil which He thought to do to Israel.God is committed to bringing people that obey Him into the destiny He has prepared for them. However, if He knocks on the door of your heart and you refuse to answer, He will move on to other willing hearts.

You must understand that God’s reputation is at stake if you do not heed, enlargement and deliverance will come from somewhere else. If you cannot be baptised with His baptism and go through the constraint for a while, someone else will pay the price. This individual will enter into the sufferings of Christ.

He will wake up at the appropriate time, make the necessary confessions, offer up sacrifices of praise and rejoice in the face of unfavourable circumstances.On the other hand, you may decide to make these needed sacrifices you will begin to experience answered prayers. Like Moses communed with God and God hearkened to him, you will also find your faith confessions materialising.

Things can happen in your environment that contradicts the oath of God over you but God is protecting those principles to work because we cannot break the government of God. It is not the will of God. So many people say it is the will of God for bad things to happen. What manifests is not necessarily the will of God.

Even though it looks as if the government of heaven and earth is backing these events it is because it is protecting the spiritual law that you have set into motion. Regardless of His emotional and personal views, heaven and earth’s constitutions cannot be disregarded because God is just. In this same vein, if all you do is make negative confessions, they will manifest regardless of God’s emotional and personal views.

Remember God has said,‘Say unto them, As truly as I live, saith the LORD, as ye have spoken in mine ears, so will I do to you. (Num 14:28)

If you have used wrong words to set spiritual laws into motion, you must realise that you cannot change things overnight. You have to start working to reverse negative trends in your life. When you kneel in prayer, it is not God’s intention that comes to pass but what the person has been enacting with his words that will occur. He is committed to performing the consistent confessions you have been making.

When you pray, it is the measure of words that you have spoken in the midst of all the trials that adds substance to your hope. Therefore, find out your ultimate destination, then commit yourself to that fixed goal with your words.

When you are steadfast in the practice of this principle, God is committed to ensuring your desire is manifested.God’s disposition towards His children is for us to receive exceeding, abundantly, far above what we could ever ask or think.

Remember it is what He hears that God is committed to doing. It is the measure of words that you have spoken in the midst of the situations consistency in the difficult places of your life.

As you are patient and steadfast God is always faithful. (Heb 6:15) Whenever, we obey this law and sow the words of our desired future, the earth undoubtedly responds, by presenting us with the exact harvest due to us.
