Matthew 6:33 – But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.
As unreal as it might sound to you, this really works. If only believers understand the logic behind the walking on the water by Peter in Matthew 14:28-30, they will know that the ‘physically’ impossible can only be possible to them if they can only stick to and focus their gaze on The WORD. That is, believe totally without an atom of doubt.
Peter was already walking on the water after the order from Jesus “come” but when he started hearing the whooshing sound of the wind, fear crept in and also doubt. And then what happened? He began to sink, Matthew 14:30.
The whooshing sound the devil is making you listen to now is the different form of negative sayings that fly around “there is no job anywhere”, “oko won lode (husband is scarce)”, “the economy is bad”, “there is no money in the Nation” (and some people are still embezzling billions o) etc.
What do you do when nothing is forthcoming? Most people think, some cut corners; involves in shady dealings, etc. Not knowing they are meant to get closer to their Bible the more during these periods. (Matthew 5:6,20)
When I finished service, after praying to God to fix me somewhere good to work, I went back to where I had my I.T experience and what I heard was ” We are looking to downsize not accept more staffs now”. I submitted enough C.Vs online and then one day this thought just came to mind; why don’t I just study my Bible and get more revelations on some sayings there of which I was finding difficult to comprehend. So I started studying and the Holy Spirit started opening my eyes to hidden things embedded in the WORD (Revelation 2:17), most times I even forget to eat my morning and afternoon food.
Some days later when I was busy ‘eating’ The Word, a call came in from the office I was told ” We are looking to downsize not accept more staffs now” to come and resume immediately. Thank God I picked that call that day because I was so engrossed in the Word, my initial thought was I didn’t want to be disturbed.
Up till now, I still get more and more revelations from the Word of God via the Holy Spirit (2 Corinthians 4:2, 1 Corinthian 2:7). You too can.
