Message Title: THE LAWS OF ENDURING BLESSING
[Date: February, 2019]
TEXT: 3John 1: 2-3
For blessing to be enduring, knowledge must be digital
The dynamics that made success yester-years have been overtaken by digital wickedness!
Knowledge is no longer enough to guarantee success; it is knowledge that can be PRACTICALLY APPLIED!
WEED YOUR LIFE REGULARLY. John 15:1-2
The plates that served you yesterday must be thrown away when it get broken – without apology!
You will not be blessed beyond the quality of those in your world
It is not everyone in ‘your Egypt’ that can understand ‘your Canaan’!
Know when something or someone has outlived their usefulness [the only exemption to this is marital relationships]
Any farm not regularly cultivated can never produce good crops
DETERMINE YOUR FRIENDSHIP COURTS
God has His holy of hollies, inner & outer courts; you must copy Him!
When the wrong people occupy your inner circle, blessings will not come
Not everyone is qualified to be your bestie!
There are people you can never jell with, no matter how you try: don’t force it!
Let people access you to the level of the tangible additions they contribute [physical, & otherwise]
When you are misjudged by those close to you, it will hinder goodwill from those far off
NEVER EMPTY YOURSELF TO ANYONE. Micah 7:5
It is good to empower people; not frenemies!
The most painful wounds are those inflicted by friends. Zech. 13:6
When those around you have not proven their loyalty, tread cautiously!
FIGHT FOR YOUR PEACE. Psa. 23:1-2
In a state of war [of any kind], progress is unattainable
If your life is always turbulent [naturally or man-made], blessing cannot abide!
The foundation for blessing is internal & external peace
Don’t settle for anything that does not give you peace
Don’t trade your peace to accommodate anyone
Don’t stay where peace in non-existent; except there is a guarantee of its return!
Without peace, blessing is not in view!
O LORD, CONNECT & POSITION ME FOR DOUBLE BLESSINGS THIS MONTH IJN
O LORD, AS WE ENTER THE ELECTION SEASON, ANY AGENDA CONTRARY TO THE PEACE OF THIS NATION; SCATTER IT IJN
