TOPIC: Your Personal Preparation
Is. 21:5; Is. 57:14, Is. 62:10
Revelation 9:20“And the rest of the men which were not killed by these plagues yet repented not of the works of their hands, that they should not worship devils, and idols of gold, and silver, and brass, and stone, and of wood: which neither can see, nor hear, nor walk:”
I have discovered that the level of success which you attain in life is determined by your degree of preparation. In my academic pursuits at home and abroad, I put lots of effort in preparing myself for my academic work. The results obtained have remained records that are hard to beat. You must prepare adequately if you want to achieve outstanding success.
Many people are not ready to kill their Goliath, because they have failed in the school of rehearsal. Herein lies a great problem. In the divine school of preparation, until you have passed a subject, you will not receive an honorary pass. When you are in the school of divine preparation, God might want to cut off the spirit and the manifestation of anger from you. If you don’t pass well in that school, that anger will keep getting you into a mess.
A lot of people are grappling with the rehearsal now; and they think it is a problem. Whereas, they ought to imbibe the lessons which the Lord wants them to learn. Anybody who has produced anything worthwhile must have put in long years of preparation before achieving the goal. God’s dealing takes time. He has to fortify you before He commits great things into your hands. It is crime for a man who is not ready when his time comes. It is your private preparation that will lead you to public manifestation.
The more successful you are in the school of divine preparation, the more impact you are going to make. When you are a failure in the school of preparation, you are likely to be a failure when you are released to the field. Before David could manifest, he rehearsed in the field with his sheep. He fought with lions and bears. He fought in the wilderness before he could face Goliath.
David was already a small boy of warfare by the time he got to the war-front when he defeated Goliath. He did not wake up one day to fight Goliath. He had passed through the school of divine preparation in the wilderness. Beloved, go through the school of divine preparation with zeal, patience and concentration.
Reach up to God. Do not pattern your life after those that failed. You will not fail if you are climbing high. You cannot fall if you are down.
That poison you have swallowed unconsciously that is moving in your body like serpent wanting to choke your breath, you the serpent hiding, your time is up get out from that belly in the name of Jesus.
1. Every arrow of untimely death fashioned against my life, go back to your senders, in the name of Jesus.
2. Every power digging grave for me, enter therein, in the name of Jesus.
3. Vehicle of my transportation shall not become my coffin, in the name of Jesus.
1. I shall not journey into death, in the name of Jesus.
2. Every snare of death set up for my life, catch your owners, in the name of Jesus.
3. There shall be no sorrow of death in my family, in the name of Jesus.
4. Every shadow of death assigned against my life, scatter, in the name of Jesus.
