SEEING, SEIZING AND SEALING OUR PROMISES

God commissioned me to minister a simple message of faith, hope and love. A message to awaken the Body of Christ to the realization of the potential God has put in us to walk into the reality of our God given visions and dreams.

Luke 13:10-17. This woman that had an encounter with Jesus was a ordinary member of the church. Loving the Word and faithfully attending services but something was amiss just like in most of us as church members.
The Bible says she was bent down and couldn’t look up in the natural. I believe that this also helps us to understand that we tend to be bent over in the spiritual and can’t see the Word eye to eye. She heard the Law taught but nothing happened until Jesus the reality of the law showed up spoke Himself in the life of this woman.

It was as though Jesus is teaching and saying “Do not just listen to the law but look upward in the Spirit and see your promise of healing and deliverance standing before you”
Therefore it is essential that firstly, YOU MUST SEE YOUR PROMISE.
Jeremiah 1:12 “Then said the Lord to me, You have seen well, for I am alert {and} active, watching over My word to perform it.” Our ability to see the Word when it is spoken determines how quicker it comes to pass in our lives. When we see right in the Word, our lives become right. God expects for you and me to see something in the Word concerning our situation. But for one to see, one must have an ear to hear according to the principles of the Word. It is equally vital that YOU MUST HEAR INORDER TO SEE.

Romans 10:17 –“ So faith comes by hearing [what is told], and what is heard comes by the preaching [of the message that came from the lips] of Christ (the Messiah Himself)”. Our faith must be based on the Word and without is it is impossible to please God.
In 2010, Lift up yourself and see your promises in God’s Word concerncing your marriage, business, relationships, educational life, healing and restoration in Jesus Name.

Secondly, from the this passage of scripture in Luke 13:12 And when Jesus saw her, He called [her to Him] and said to her, Woman, you are released from your infirmity! SEIZE YOUR PROMISE . And you do this by ALIGNINIG YOURSELF TO THE WORD. Jesus called this woman to Himself. The Word is calling us to life and a greater destiny. We do not call ourselves But He call us and all we do is to align our lives with His Word. He draws us to Himself through the power of His love. And there must be a willingness from our part to draw near to God and will drawn nearer.

Finally, in Luke 13:13 “Then He laid [His] hands on her, and instantly she was made straight, and she recognized {and} thanked {and} praised God”, YOU MUST SEAL YOUR PROMISE BY PRAISE AND WORSHIP. There are times we have prayed and fasted and claimed the promises of God and nothing seem to happen. It is time to seal your prayers and fasting with praise and Worship. Your high praises determine your higher places of life you travel.
Praise and worship does not bring God in our situation but instead God is manifested in our situation. Remember God is everywhere even though we might not sense Him at times but He is Here always. In praise and worship “we” manifest His presence around us for lack of a better way of putting it.

1 Cor 1:9 God is faithful (reliable, trustworthy, and therefore ever true to His promise, and He can be depended on); by Him you were called into companionship {and} participation with His Son, Jesus Christ our Lord.
