REFUSE THE PRESSURES OF TIME ;
(…And Live In Eternity)
👤 Pastor Chris Oyakhilome;
📖 TO THE BIBLE
Daniel 2:20-21 GNB “God is wise and powerful! Praise him forever and ever. He controls the times and the seasons; he makes and unmakes kings; it is he who gives wisdom and understanding.”
◀️ LET’S TALK
It’s the tenth month of the year 2019—our “Year of Lights.” Perhaps, you might have been troubled and saying in your heart, “Lord, I still have things I want to shine and excel in. I want to receive more money for this, and for that; now the year is almost coming to an end.” Don’t think that way with God. Stay in eternity. Live in eternity. Think differently. Don’t try to rush God like natural people do. Live with Him in His realm of life. Don’t get under the “pressure” of time.
When you get under pressure because of what you want to accomplish within a certain time, you become a slave to time. Don’t let that happen to you. Time should actually be a slave to you. Psalm 37:4-6 NIV says, “Take delight in the LORD, and he will give you the desires of your heart. Commit your way to the LORD; trust in him and he will do this: He will make your righteous reward shine like the dawn, your vindication like the noonday sun.” Nothing is too difficult for, or impossible with, the Lord; He’s the great God. He said in Jeremiah 32:27 MSG, “Stay alert! I am GOD, the God of everything living. Is there anything I can’t do?” His greatness is beyond description. His power is limitless. Trust Him, and trust His ability. He can do for you in a second, what naturally should have taken you ten years to achieve.
Within the last part of this year, you can receive anything that you desire of Him. Jesus said in John 16:24, “…Ask, and you will receive, that your joy may be full.” He wants your joy to be full; therefore, keep your faith active; ask and receive. Stand firm; stay strong. Believe and keep affirming the Word even in the face of staggering oppositions. Never give up!

I refuse to live under pressure, for the Lord is my salvation, and upon Him, I’ve cast all my cares, living the transcendent life, and enjoying peace with prosperity. My path is as the shining light that shines brighter and brighter unto the perfect day. The Lord my God is my sufficiency, my refuge, my glory and my strength; He’s my all. Hallelujah!
