Remedies against drifting

How has the message you have been hearing since changed you?
Change does not happen automatically but drifting does.
If you take the action towards the devil, you will sink.
To recognize the the power of the devil, you need to understand the power of God

Remedies against drifting
1. Keep rowing
The beat we row to is the word of God and we must learn to take one step at a time
2 Peter 1:5-10
Sometimes we have become barren Christians.
Phil 3:12- 15
Paul says he keeps rowing. 2 corth 4:16

2. Watch out for under current
Sin is like wild beast waiting to devour
Gen 4:7
Don’t let the under current control you but you control it
1 Peter 2:11, Gal 5:16-18

3. Expect to go against the current
Gen 39:11-15
Sometimes running away is the best sensible thing to do
When we start having conversation with the devil, we fall for it
Matt 7:13-14

4. We must have a strong anchor
Cool 2:6-7, Eph 4:14-15, Heb 6:18-19, Eph 3:16-18
Our Anchor should be God

Are you drifting?

We can always press the refresh button in our lives
Hebrews 2: 1-3
Drifting can happen to anyone so we need to be careful. 1 corth 10:12
Sometimes we realize too late. That is we drift away without realizing.
Little compromise makes us drift. It’s common to Christians to drift away while caught up in different things.
Drifting is spiritually fatal
Demas was a strong man working for God drifted. Phil 1:23-24, Col 4:7-14, 2 Tim 4:9-10
Drifting requires no effort. Drifting takes you downstream or flowing with the current

Signs that you are drifting
1. Shortened prayer life
2. Desire to do other things than the things of God
3. No love for other believers
4. Shortened God’s word

Soldier of Christ

We do the right thing without the lord’s strength and you are not enjoying it.
The enemy wants us to loose the joy
2 Tim 2:3-4
Many Christians received Jesus in their head rather than in their heart. The difference between a soldier and a normal christian is enduring hardship.
We are not on the playground but on a battleground. God has entrusted us to be soldiers. If God is your captain, then you have to obey him.

Things you need as a soldier
1. Commission as a soldier
A soldier has to have a commission. Many Christian are soldier but don’t know their commission
Heb 2:10
People know the cross but they don’t know Jesus. Many people are commissioned but we want vacation. It’s not possible
2. Conditioning as a soldier
You need to train yourself
3. Commitment as a soldier
You cannot save anybody, just lead them to who can save which is Jesus. Stop performing, God is not interested in your performance. Start being passionate about God.

God is always with you

God uses the worst-possible person in the sight of men to spread his word.
John 5:1-7
People come to church without knowing the power of God. We want God to lead us to our problems.
The man at the pool never knew who was with him. He thought Jesus was just a random man
Sometimes we do long distance relationship with God. However, it doesn’t work
Jesus has come to save the lost. Healing doesn’t start from the church, it start with us.
God is always with you

The theme of the word

The word of God is written by many authors but one writer. That is men wrote the Bible but God orchestrated it.
The word has life because God breathe in it. The Bible is about one theme: Everybody sins and needs to be saved and that savior is Jesus.
Only the word of God stays the same so do not trust in your feelings because they will fail or change.
The flesh and the spirit are always against each other. The word of the lord is flawless.
Psalm 12:6
We need to trust in the word of the Lord.
Jesus looks like God and has the same character as God. The word is the only thing that kept Eve away from the tree yet its the same word that Satan use to deceive Eve. He made Eve doubt God’s word.
The word of the lord is sharper than two edged sword

Obedience that led to healing

God trains us as we go deeper into the sea of life. We need to know how to face the storm through the help of God. He doesn’t want us to stay at the shore but to go into the sea.

2 kings 5:1-14
God used different people to bring victory to Naaman’s life
An important thing to note about lepers is that they loose sensitivity on the place the disease strike. Sometimes we are spiritual lepers. We have lost the sensitivity of God speaking to us.
Elisha died of disease yet he healed so many people. Don’t try to question God.
The word of God is not an explanation but a declaration. All u need do is obedience

Obedience that lead to healing
1. It took obedience from the part of the slave
Though she was a slave, she had a good attitude. All we need to do is to speak it

2. Naaman’s also had to obey the slave girl
He was desperate for a healing. Therefore he listened. Until you are desperate, you won’t see the move of God. The king tore his robe because he was trusting in his strength instead of trusting on God

3. Obedience from Elisha
He still obeyed his custom regardless of the fame and wealth of Naaman because Israelite cannot see lepers. He told him to go wash

Naaman was ready to go back without getting healed tho he was desperate. If he had gone back, we wont have received the healing. Partial obedience is disobedience

The hardest thing to do is the simple things
Are you willing to have complete obedience?

Hope

Concorde, Titanic and Louisiana Superdome have something in common which is fail-proof guarantee. However, they all failed.
Concorde was expensive, beautiful place but prestige over efficacy
Titanic: presumption before the fall
Louisiana Superdome: hit by Katrina hurricane
If there is life, there is hope. Everything that you hope in will disappoint. Only the hope in God doesn’t disappoint
Rom 5:5

People that hoped in the Lord

    1. Daniel: entered lions den
    2. Gideon: proved that numbers means nothing
    3. Mordecai: even with injustice prevailing was recognized and honored by the king
    4. Nehemiah: huge task, few workers, many mockers, but success comes from tge lord
    5. Peter: walked on water
    6. Paul: there was hope even for him that persecuted those that believed

    Just stay true to what God calls you for. There is hope but the question is where will you put your hope?

    What are your options
    1. Hope in wealth – King Solomon
    2. Hope in their own strength – Samson
    3. Hope in a position or prominence – Jeroboam
    4. Hope in Relationship – David and his sons
    5. Hope in Government – people of Israel and their many Kings
    6. Hope in yourself – You and me
    However, hope in God overcomes all.
    Isa 40:31

Shall you not know it?

Isaiah 43:19
God is giving us timeline by saying shall you not know it. When we don’t know the timeline of God or what God wants us to see, abuse is inevitable.
Before you can do anything for God, we need to be able to see. God wants us to look through our problems by having the eyes to see.
When we can’t see it, we won’t be able to experience what God has in stock for us.
Christians should be farsighted not shortsighted. What God did by sending his son to die for our sins was intentional not risk. Jesus was practical
Matt 25:1-13 : Do you have extra oil?
As there is a place for sharing and caring, so also there is a place for preparation.
Most Christians today are thoughtless and careless
The reason why the 5 foolish virgins didn’t have relationship is because they are thoughtless, careless and silly. It also applies to today’s Christianity.
When you don’t know someone, you can’t think about that person. The 5 foolish virgins never thought about what will make their journey complete.
Today’s complacency is tomorrow’s captivity
Thoughtfulness requires work
Judges 7:5-6
Those that knelt down are selfish whereas those that cup their hand were keeping their eyes on the enemy while drinking. We shouldn’t be consumed by our needs, we need to go extra mile. This reveals a special character
What extra are you doing today?
if you are doing something else instead of being in prayer meeting then you are living a thoughtless and silly life.
Every Christian is a minister
Nehemiah 4:6,17
Do you have a mind to work for God? Is your mind trained to do the things of God?
2 kings 4:1-7
The widow acted on the word that came upon her house. She had to work by getting several pots / vessels.
When you put work to it, you will get results. However, we are not saved by works but by grace but we are saved to work.
The call of God will not be on forever, we need to act fast now!!!

A stinking thinking

As God is doing a new thing, we have to let go of the old. Sometimes we are willing to take lie in our lives and rigid in our ways.
Your body is functioning at a different wavelength and your spirit is also on another wavelength but the mind brings them together.
There are so many things that your mind controls. An active mind cannot live in an inactive body.
We only prepare for the worst case scenario and never the best case scenario.
Romans 12:1-2
Renewing: You cannot enter the new with an old mentality. A stale mind is a devil’s breadbox.
If you don’t control your thought, someone else will.
We are following the opposite of what Philippians 4:8 say that’s why we have margarine, dishonesty etc.
We need to think on things that are pure, that’s how God sees us. We need to be dead to ourselves to go to heaven.
Satan wants us to be distracted.

A beautiful lame excuse

There can be harvest but if we don’t have the wisdom to handle the the harvest, it becomes a problem
Act 3:1-10
Though it’s a beautiful gate but things were not beautiful at the beautiful gate.
Ninth hour is a time of sacrifice. We all come to God with our needs and we get satisfied where we are but we shouldn’t be satisfied. We need to hope higher
If you don’t see it, you will miss it. The hardest thing to break is our mentality. God wants us to have a new mentality.
The price have been paid, the harvest is there but you need to reach out for it.
The lame man was expecting money but Peter gave him what he had which is Jesus.
It is not what we need, but what God thinks we need
The lame man has been lame for 40 years and 40 is significance. It means the generation of Man, trials and testing.
Peter was able to stand up and speak because he has also received the power in the upper room.
There have to be an overflow when there is harvest
