(Message synopsis 12272015- Pastor Sola Olowokere)
As a child of God, it is my responsibility is to believe what God has said. However, it’s God’s responsibility to perform what He has said. And blessed is she that believed: for there shall be a performance of those things which were told her from the Lord (Luke 1:45).
Where there’s no believe, there’s no performance- Jesus couldn’t perform much miracle because the people did not believe. Is not this the carpenter, the son of Mary, the brother of James, and Joses, and of Juda, and Simon? and are not his sisters here with us? And they were offended at him. But Jesus, said unto them, A prophet is not without honour, but in his own country, and among his own kin, and in his own house. And he could there do no mighty work, save that he laid his hands upon a few sick folk, and healed them (Mark 6:3-5).
Four Resources for God’s children
God’s word is the greatest resources available to His children. The word ensures that you cannot be dominated by darkness. In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. The same was in the beginning with God. All things were made by him; and without him was not an thing made that was made. In him was life; and the life was the light of men. And the light shineth in darkness; and the darkness comprehended it not (John 1:1-5).
Peter heard the word and his poverty was gone. The Centurion tapped into the power that’s in the word and his servant was made whole. He sent his word, and healed them, and delivered them from their destructions (Psalm 107:20).
- The blood of Jesus is one of the greatest resources form God to His children. The blood does not just cleanse from unrighteousness, it also protects. And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony; and they loved not their lives unto the death (Rev 12:1). And the blood shall be to you for a token upon the houses where ye are: and when I see the blood, I will pass over you, and the plague shall not be upon you to destroy you, when I smite the land of Egypt (Exodus 12:13).
- Angelic assistance- God’s angels are still around to help God’s people. Be not forgetful to entertain strangers: for thereby some have entertained angels unawares (Heb.13:2).
- The anointing is the crown of all of God’s resources. It ensures the performance of God’s Word. Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies: thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over (Psalm 23:5).
When God want to ensure that His word is not compromised, He sends the anointing! This was what God sent to David. See 1Samuel chapter 16
David’s throne could not be overthrown till date because of the anointing. Where Saul ended was where David started because of the anointing!
