Rhapsody Of Realities May 2nd 2018 | MEDITATE ON THE WORD…NOT THE CHALLENGES



Today's TopicMEDITATE ON THE WORD…NOT THE CHALLENGES
Teacher: Pastor Chris Oyakhilome D.D. D.Sc

Opening Scripture 

_While we look not at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen: for the things which are seen are temporal; but the things which are not seen are eternal (2 Corinthians 4:18)._

In Mark 11:23, the Lord Jesus gave us the recipe for effecting a change in any situation. He said, “you shall have what you say.” In other words, to change hopeless situations, what you need do is to talk to the mountain. Sadly, what we find is people talking about the mountain, instead of talking to it, and that’s not going to change things.

As long as you’re discussing the challenges, you’re fellowshipping the problems. You should rather fellowship the Word. Meditate on the Word, not on the problems you seem to be going through, because the so-called problems aren’t real; only the Word is real. What you need is to meditate on what the Word says about your situation.

Maybe it’s a growth in your body and you’ve been complaining about it to everyone around you; it’s time to change things! Declare the Word. Say, “Growth, die and pass out of my body in Jesus’ Name, because my body is the temple of the Holy Ghost.”

Perhaps, it’s your financial condition that needs a change; get on a Word-therapy. Start poring over scriptures that talk about your financial prosperity, such as 3 John 1:2, Psalm 23:1, 2 Corinthians 9:8, 2 Corinthians 8:9, 1 Corinthians 3:21, Acts 20:32, etc. Meditate on them until all you can think, see, and talk is prosperity. God gave you a mouth, not just for eating, but primarily for meditation; so you can speak and effect the changes you desire.

In Joshua 1:8, the Lord gave Joshua the simple recipe for success: meditating on the Word. Rather than waste precious time bemoaning the problem, focus on the power of God and the efficacy of His Word to put you over and effect a change in that situation.

PRAYER

Precious Father, I thank you for your superabundant grace in my life, and your glory that I bear. Thank you for the grace of Jesus Christ that has made me rich in all things. You’ve granted me all things that pertain to life and godliness, and for this I praise your holy Name.

Further Study:
|| Psalm 1:1-3 Blessed [is] the man that walketh not in the counsel of the ungodly, nor standeth in the way of sinners, nor sitteth in the seat of the scornful. 2, But his delight [is] in the law of the LORD; and in his law doth he meditate day and night. 3, And he shall be like a tree planted by the rivers of water, that bringeth forth his fruit in his season; his leaf also shall not wither; and whatsoever he doeth shall prosper. ||

|| Acts 20:32 - And now, brethren, I commend you to God, and to the word of his grace, which is able to build you up, and to give you an inheritance among all them which are sanctified. ||

|| 2 Corinthians 4:17-18 - For our light affliction, which is but for a moment, worketh for us a far more exceeding [and] eternal weight of glory; 18, While we look not at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen: for the things which are seen [are] temporal; but the things which are not seen [are] eternal. ||

Conclusion:
God gave us the mouth, tongue and his word as a weapon so we can use it to affect our lives and world positively. Use them tightly to cause changes in whatsoever you say and believe "It's a done deal"

Praise the Lord.
