PROGRESS IS MADE WHEN STEPS ARE TAKEN
BISHOP OYEDEPO SAID-WHAT YOU DON’T WANT, YOU DON’T WATCH!
WHAT MUST BE RELEASED MUST BE PROPHESIED AND WHAT MUST BE CLEARED MUST BE DECLARED.
YOU MUST PROPHESY AND DECREE ON WHAT MUST BE IN YOUR LIFE.
YOU DON’T WISH CHANGE INTO HAPPENING, YOU PRAY CHANGE INTO HAPPENING.
THE SPIRIT OF FAITH IS A SPEAKING SPIRIT.
–Dr. Pastor Paul Enenche on “NAVIGATING THE JUNCTIONS OF LIFE” Power Communion Service Glory Dome, Abuja – Part B
6. Supplication (Prayer)
You don’t wish change into happening, you pray change into happening. In 1 Chronicles 4:9-10, we saw a man by the name Jabez, how he prayed the change into happening. He needed change, a phase must change, he must step into a new season, he did not wish it, he prayed it. In Genesis 32:24-28, we saw how Jacob wrestled until his name was changed from Jacob to Israel. God’s servant, Bishop David Oyedepo will say: ‘What you don’t want, you don’t watch it, you pray it’. If you don’t want it, don’t watch it, just keep dealing with it until it is handled.
That is, speaking boldly about what you have desired and decided; speaking boldly about what your desired outcome should be. The Spirit of Faith is a speaking spirit. 2 Corinthians 4:13. At creation, God spoke. Genesis 1:3. Ezekiel 37:7.
Listen to this, whatever must be realized, must be prophesied. I’m not talking of external Prophets prophesying and shaking their body for you, I’m talking of you prophesying and decreeing on what must be in your life. You know there are a lot of funny Prophets these days.
One said that: ‘And the Lord said that as I used my servant Abraham to lead my people from Egypt to Israel’, then he realized: No, it was not Abraham, it was Moses. Then he said: ‘Oh! The Lord said it is not Abraham, it was Moses’. Very terrible! Caricature, mockery! That’s not the type I’m talking about. I’m talking about you being the Prophet of your own destiny.
‘I can’t be stranded, 2023 is not permitted to end until the glory rises upon my life. Until light shines on me on every side’. What must be released must be prophesied and what must be cleared must be declared.
If you want Heaven to clear it for you, like Custom you know how they clear goods? If you want it cleared, you must have it declared. If it is not declared, it may not be cleared. At the junction, that was what God did at creation. He was declaring and it was being cleared. He was prophesying and it was being realized.
Progress is made when steps are taken. No matter how interested you are, until steps are taken progress is never made. Progress is made when steps are taken, until steps are taken, progress is never made. Genesis 12:1-5. The action you may take may require separation and consecration – Which means you change your lifestyle in certain ways, which means you change certain associations in certain ways in order to gain acceleration. It may require that.
Your action may require confrontation, the confrontation of the negative situations like God told the children of Israel in Exodus 14:15. Forward into where? Into the Red Sea, dare it! And as they moved towards the Red Sea, the Red Sea moved apart. As they moved forward the Red Sea moved apart. 2 Kings 7:4-6. You may need to ask God: ‘Lord! What steps do you want me to take at this junction? What moves do you want to make at this junction? This junction of my life? How do you want me to navigate? How do you want me to move’? He will tell you the steps to take and the moves to make.
-And I believe it’s a change of story for somebody.
So you are moving from reflection to appreciation to vision to decision to determination to supplication to declaration to action and the whole outcome of everything is the manifestation.
