Sermon for the week

Today’s Churches must rule with the power of God(Psalm 110:2) and command mighty works that come from divine wisdom, the wisdom of God(Mark 6:2). The Word of God is quick, powerful, and sharper than any two-edged sword you can imagine or think of. It is powerful both in the natural and in the supernatural. It can change anything, and I mean any situation(Hebrews 4:12). God and the Word are inseparable. For by the Word was everything created(John 1:1). The entrance of the Word brings light and understanding into any man and leads to a victorious life(Ps. 119:130). 
Let's go into the Word of God for the week.

 As children of the Most High God, we have a known enemy, Satan. I can hear you saying you don't have anything in common with him, I quite agree with you, but you might be shocked, he has much against you. As you continue to be in right standing(righteous) with God, your father, Satan is your archenemy(number one enemy). His battle with you is spiritual and not carnal(2 Corinthians 10:4). He will tempt you with anxiety, fear, worry, and others. Most importantly, he will want you to doubt God, doing his best to “repackage” your situation to look very bad to the extent of disapproving God. Don’t ever be moved, these are some of his antics. He is an expert in deceiving people. Can you still remember his deeds in the Garden of Eden?

Satan is a liar, there is no truth in him, all the way from the beginning. Lies flow freely in him, it's his nature and the main constituents of his DNA.

“For you are the children of your father the devil, and you love to do the evil things he does. He was a murderer from the beginning.

He has always hated the truth because there is no truth in him. When he lies, it is consistent with his character;

for he is a liar and the father of lies.” - John 8:44 NLT.

Friends, under all conditions, trust God, it pleases Him. Your unshakeable faith is pleasant to Him.

The amplified version of Hebrews 11:6 says:

“But without faith, it is impossible to [walk with God and] please Him, for whoever comes [near] to God must [necessarily] believe that God exists and that He rewards those who [earnestly and diligently] seek Him.”

Your, unwavering trust is one of the most excellent ways to honor God. In addition, It is the gateway to a worry-free, fearless, stress-free, and anxiety-free life. Do you know that trusting God is a sure repellant for shame and reproach? 

As Scripture says, “Anyone who believes in him will never be put to shame.”  -Romans 10:11 NIV

In all circumstances, God wants us to trust Him not with our lips but wholeheartedly.

“Therefore the Lord said: “Inasmuch as these people draw near with their mouths And honor Me with their lips, But have removed their hearts far from Me, And their fear toward Me is taught by the commandment of men”. - Isaiah 29:13 NKJV

We should not forget that trusting God is a guaranteed way of invoking God's blessings.

“Blessed is the man who trusts in the LORD, And whose hope is the LORD.” - Jeremiah 17:7 NIV

According to the Scripture:” for we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, and powers and others.” (Ephesians 6:12). The only safety net against life battles is absolute trust in God. Yes, there’s safety in trusting God.

“Fearing people is a dangerous trap, but trusting the LORD means safety.” - Psalm 29:25 NLT

What is trusting God?

Anytime we demonstrate our absolute confidence in the intentions or acts of God, trust is the major player. Each time we rely or rest on God’s covenants, promises, words, and others, we are exhibiting our trust in Him.

Trusting God is a choice but a privilege if you so desire. There are countless happenings or excuses to support a single distrust of Him. On the other hand, there are plenty of reasons and happenings to trust Him.

Trusting Him or otherwise, is a choice. As for me, I will go in the way of the Psalmist, I will stick with the best and tested choice: no matter what, I will trust Him all the time.

“Trust in Him at all times, you people; Pour out your heart before Him; God is a refuge for us.”-Psalm 62:8 NKJV

Are you trying to trust God, or indeed trusting Him?

Are you resting in His faithfulness?

Are you still disturbed despite His promises?

If your response to any of these questions isn't in the affirmative or you’re not sure, you need to learn to trust God. Oh yes, you can learn to trust God. Furthermore, you can learn His ways and know His will. These are part of the Ministry of the Holy Spirit. (John 14:26)

  2. Never forget His past deeds and help, He can still do much more. (1 Samuel 17:36)

  3. Understand that He has been tested to be ever faithful. (Psalm 33:4)
