Programming your life for the next level by Pastor Chris Oyakhilome;
You can decide to make progress, you can decide that you don’t want to make progress, you can decide to go backwards..
The good in your hand is the enemy of the best. Some others believe a bird in hand is worth two in the bush. That’s not true. You can go for much
The life of stagnation and backwardness is a result of idol worship. Many times we have idols in our lives. We worship things we dont realize how we worship them. Sometimes you have a pain in your body and you worship it until it turns into something else. It has gained the mastery over you because you give it special attention.
Anything that places limitation on your life God is against it. God likes it when you can think new and fresh think of something big, we wants you to make progress. He doesnt want anything to place limitation in your life.
The devil is not your problem, Jesus said all power all authority is given unto me in heaven and in earth go ye therefore make disciples of all nations.
James said resist the devil and he will flee.
Dont be afraid of the devil, theres no reason to be afraid of him. The devil is not your problem.
Sin is not your problem. Romans 6:14 for says sin shall not have dominion over you.
What did Jesus do for you? Why has the gospel not been fulfilled in your life. Sin shall not have dominion over you is not a promise it’s a law, a sovereign declaration of the almighty God.
It’s like John 3:16 for God so loved the world that he gave his only begotten son that whoever believes in him should not perish
In other words the whole world is doomed for destruction but Gof gave his son so that anybody who believes in him should not perish.
So if you believe you should not perish. It should not be that you are in a bus and everybody dies including you. You are separated from those who are supposed to perish.
Fear not, stand your ground, resist the devil he will flee.
The devil was made by God as Lucifer son of the morning he is programmed to flee at your resistance. As a cow cannot fly because it is not in him to fly the devil was never made to have courage of boldness.
That’s why God told Joshua be strong and courageous because that’s something the devil doesnt have.
Satan is not an issue, God is not trying to deliver you from the devil, you can do whatever you want with him, kick him around ignore him, when you ignore him that’s the worst punishment
What do you do with sin? Sin shall not have dominion over you Nothing can bind you, anything you dont want to do anymore just say in the name of Jesus I am going to do this anymore and that’s it. You dont need any special preparation, special fasting. It’s not supposed to dominate you. As you are not supposed to fast against the devil you are not required to fast against sin because the issue has been finished with.
The principle in the kingdom is that the closer you are to the master the father you are from the evil one. He said my son give me your heart. If you give him your heart you cannot at the same time give the wrong thing your heart.
He said guard your heart with all diligence for out of your heart are the issues of life. Your good home will come out of your heart, your good family will come out of your heart, your good job will come out of your heart, the cars will come from your heart, the money will come from your heart. The issues of life are from your heart so guard your heart.
It matters what thoughts come in, dont let just any thought come in, you are not a dumping ground, dont read just any material, dont read the wrong books because you become what you read.
You want to see good days, you want to see prosperity, you want to see health, you want to walk in victory then it matters what goes into your heart. Dont let nonsense come in, get the word of God inside.
The bible says let the word of God dwell in you richly. Let the word dwell in you richly until you become a walking bible. When men are talking you are not reasoning carnally you are talking from the word of God, you know what the lord has said. It is impossible for such a man to fail.
You are a chosen generation race, a royal priesthood, a dedicated nation, Gods own purchased special people, that you may set forth the wonderful deeds and display the virtues, and perfections of him who called you out of darkness.
God has chosen you out of the crowd that you may show forth the praises of him who has called you out of darkness into his marvellous light.
There are things that God has put inside you, God is telling you stop hiding. Let the world see what God has put in you.
Go out, relate with people, speak out, theres something in your voice. You are complete, you are well finished. Theres something about you. Do not hide the glory of God, you are a reflection of the glory of God. You are the kings kid, act like one, dress like one.
