WE WILL BE DEDICATING MASSIVE CHURCH BUILDINGS IN WARRI, UYO AND JOS THIS MONTH. IT’S NOT BY POWER OR MIGHT BUT BY GRACE
WHAT GOD DID FOR YOU THAT ONLY YOU CAN HANDLE IS STILL A CHILD’S PLAY COMPARED TO WHAT GOD IS LONGING TO DO
THE CHALLENGE OF MOST PEOPLE IS THAT WE ARE SEEKING OTHER THINGS OF LIFE FIRST AND TRYING TO ADD GOD LAST
MAKE GOD THE PRIORITY OF YOUR LIFE AND YOU WON’T STRUGGLE FOR THE PROSPERITIES OF LIFE
THERE ARE PEOPLE WHO ARE TO WISE FOR GOD TO HELP. THEY CONSIDER THEMSELVES SUCH EXPERTS THAT GOD JUST LEFT THEM TO THEIR WISDOM
– Dr. Pastor Paul Enenche on “THE BLESSING OF THE WORD OF GOD” September Blessing Service Glory Dome, Abuja – Part B.
5. The Power to amplify efforts.
The effort of a whole night did not produce any result but the effort that happened after the Word. Can I ask you a question?
How many fishing seasons do you think that Peter would have needed to fill two ships? Maybe a thousand attempts at fishing. I don’t know of any fisherman that went and came back home with ship filled with fish in one fishing.
You are talking of a thousand fishes or a hundred, do you know what that means to you?
That you took one step and got the result of a thousand steps.
The Word of God has such capacity to amplify efforts that the results you’re seeing is not commensurate with your efforts.
People will be thinking that you’re a champion or something else but they don’t know that there’s something working for you and working with you.
– I don’t know who God sent me to speak to here this morning but I think you have laboured enough. You have tried your best and that best of yours have not produced the results you’ve been expecting but I stand here to announce today, in a short while to come, starting from today, you shall see the amplification of your efforts and results!
– look at your neighbour, say “get ready for results that are beyond your efforts!”
I will be dedicating a Dunamis Church in Rayfield, Jos tonight. I will be dedicating another Dunamis Church in Uyo, Akwa Ibom this month, I will be dedicating another one in Warri, Delta State this month. It’s not by power, it’s not of him that willeth or runneth.
These are buildings being built in millions, some properties bought with over 200 million, just for the land alone, especially as you move down south. Now, there are properties of billions, yes. Not of him that willeth or runneth but of God who shows mercy.
This same month is the month in which we have a program in Chicago and the New York crusade.
The grace is supplied, energy is supplied, resources supplied. I think the major part of it is the energy. What do you think? If you doubt, I can give you to try it (laughs). Hallelujah!
– I speak to somebody here today, my God and your God is about to give you a change of story!
– lift your right hand say, in the name of Jesus, I receive the Power of the Word to amplify my efforts in my life! I receive it!
The reason why God must do things in a hurry is because if we follow things in the normal schedule, we won’t achieve anything even in a thousand years, we won’t achieve much till Jesus comes. That is why there must be the amplification of our efforts.
6. The Power of the Word to unlock and untrap potentials.
The way it occurred to me is like that lake had the potential for that result but it was trapped and locked and the Master came and unlocked it.
You know the way a bird is caged and the cage just got opened and the bird flew out. There are many things about our lives and many things about what we do with our lives that can produce more results than we see. That business endeavour, that career, that ministry assignment has more to offer than what you currently see and what the Word of God does is to unlock it.
Look at Moses, what he carried in his hand as a rod that he was using to do business of tending flock was the destiny of a Nation.
That rod was critical for the deliverance of a country but he carried it for 40 years without knowing what it could do until God’s presence and God’s Word unlocked that potential.
What should be used to deliver people is being used to drive animals until God unlocked it.
– somebody get ready because something is about to be unlocked!
7. The Power of the Word to generate results beyond expectations and capacity of handling.
Results that are beyond expectations and beyond handling capacity. What Peter got was beyond what he expected and it was also beyond what he could handle.
That is, God has the capacity to give you a result that you alone can’t handle. Listen, any result that only you can handle is still at the kindergarten stage of possibility; what God did for you that only you can handle is still a child’s play compared to what God is longing to do.
Peter beckoned on his partners in the other ship, “o boss, I have something here that is beyond my power. There’s a contract here that if only me attempts to do it, I will just collapse. There’s a project here, I’m looking for people”, that was what happened. Ephesians 3:20.
– somebody say Amen!
What are the secrets to the Power of the blessing of the Word?
1. Seek God first.
You know Peter laboured, he toiled all night and caught nothing. Matthew 6:33. Peter sought Him first because it came to the point where his effort was not working and he decided to abandon that effort.
Jesus was passing and Jesus asked that they pushed the ship and he pushed out the ship and Jesus stood on it to preach, Peter sat there to listen with the others. Seek God first. The challenge of most people is that we are seeking other things of life first and trying to add God last. Seek God first, make God the priority of your life and you won’t struggle for the prosperities of life.
2. Surrender your wisdom and expertise to Him. There are people who are to wise for God to help. They consider themselves such experts that God just left them to their wisdom.
Peter came to the point where he knew that his fishing wisdom and expertise could not help, so he surrendered it. When Jesus said, “launch your net”, he didn’t say, “you know I was born in this thing? You know I’m an expert here, who are you to tell me how to fish?” He said, “I surrender”. We must come to a point in our lives, “Yes, Lord, I have a First Class degree. Yes, Lord, I’m beautiful and handsome. Yes, Lord, I was trained in this or that, but I want to surrender it to you. I want to surrender my wisdom to your wisdom and my expertise to your expertise. I want to behave like I don’t know anything”.
That was what Solomon did, he said,”I’m a small child, I don’t know how to go out and I don’t know how to come in, I need your wisdom” and God gave it to him and the rest, they say, is history. Surrender!
