Father! …I didn’t Come today to ask for power or fire, I am here today to ask you, TO TEACH ME TO LOVE YOU!
1 Corinthians 13:1; Though I speak with the tongues of men and of angels, and have not (love)charity, I am become as sounding brass, or a tinkling cymbal.
13:2 And though I have the gift of prophecy, and understand all mysteries, and all knowledge; and though I have all faith, so that I could remove mountains, and have not (love)charity, I am NOTHING.
13:3 And though I bestow all my goods to feed the poor, and though I give my body to be burned, and have not (love)charity, it profiteth me NOTHING.
13:8 (Love) Charity never faileth: but whether there be prophecies, they shall fail; whether there be tongues, they shall cease; whether there be knowledge, it shall vanish away.
13:13 And now abideth faith, hope, charity(love), these three; but the greatest of these is (Love) charity.
If your kingdom journey is not backed up with THE LOVE OF GOD, it is just a waste of time
What drive a man to do anything for the kingdom,…It is not Spiritual Hunger or Desire or passion, it is just L.O.V.E
It was Love that started this Spiritual journey and it must be the love of God that must continue it and end it
Remember, John 3:16, it was God’s Love that gave us salvation and it is that same love that gave us grace and still that same love that gave us the Holy spirit
Love started every thing, then that love of God must follow you through fulfilling your purpose.
If you are trying to FULFILL your Destiny and purpose and you NEVER remember about HIS LOVE then you will find it hard to understand the ways of God upon your life
When the Love of God is removed then you will see men going to Services and programs so that they can receive impartation….all they are after is impartation and power after that, nothing else
Ahhh!!!… And these are the same people claiming they want to carry God….The true reason they want God is so that their church and fellowship will know a man with the power of God have arrive!
Ahhh!!!… Revival can’t come like that
The MAJOR reason for Seeking God is to BE LIKE HIM… The Bible says in 1 John 3:2 that; “Beloved, now are we the sons of God, and it doth not yet appear what we shall be: but we know that, when he shall appear, WE SHALL BE LIKE HIM; for we shall see him as he is.”
THE REASON FOR YOU BEEN AN APOSTLE OR EVANGELIST OR PASTOR OR MEMBER OR A CHRISTAIN…. Your focus must not be power or fire or prosperity or might or breakthrough…. YOUR FOCUS MUST BE GOD AND ONLY GOD
Many seek for their heart desires in God and not God himself and after the desires have been granted, their Prayer life will reduce and the way they read their Bible will decrease
Why? … it is because THEY ARE NOT TRULY SEEKING GOD
What is that reason you are going to God???
Some people can come to God to ask for ask for a positive thing with their mouth but their heart is saying some else
You can see a man coming to God crying for prosperity or breakthrough but his heart is telling God that he is on a revenge mission so that he can prove to his friends and family in the village that he is not a failure and he is financially sound
Ahhh!!! …God can’t answer such kind of prayer, because the reason for your asking doesn’t glorify God
You can see a youth crying for power but his heart is telling God that he need it for his street and his church so that they will know that he is a true apostle of power
Ahhh … these set of people can’t be used for revival
If your reason for seeking God is to become powerful in the spirit, you have missed it because that is not the true Love of God
Many don’t love God for who he his, they only love him because of his power.
Many people love him because of abundant wealth, might, marital/financial/academical breakthrough and many more…… which supposed not to be
NO UNCONDITIONAL LOVE ANYMORE… These is an insult to the God of heaven and Earth.
No wonder, Other religion can die for their god… Even at the point of death they can still give their LIFE to their gods…
what cause such kind of action???
That action is an action of LOVE for their gods that they love their god unto death
If they can do it and we, the sons and daughters of the true God can give our life for our God then something is wrong somewhere
CHECK YOUR LIFE DEEPLY!!!
WHERE HAVE I MISSED IT
Jesus said “Nevertheless I have somewhat against thee, because thou hast left THY FIRST LOVE.” (Revelation 2:4)
Do you know what make you an Apostle/
Evangelist/ Pastor is because of his LOVE
and Jesus specifical said “THY FIRST LOVE”…. That means many have other love, i.e love for prosperity, breakthrough, fire, power, wisdom, prophecy and many more….
THE FIRST LOVE contain and involve one person and that person is GOD
That means the true reason of my prayer points is not on the issues of life… The true reason is because I LOVE YOU LORD!
David said “O God, thou art my God; early will I seek thee: my soul thirsteth for thee, my flesh longeth for thee…” (Psalms 63:1)
That is a king that is not after any other thing, all he is after is GOD and GOD ALONE… No wonder God said “David is a man after my heart”
Are you after God’s wealth/power OR you are after His Heart, to love him beyond measure
WHO IS THIS GOD TO YOU???
You will so love God to an extent that If He decide not to give you what you want, I will still remain with him and I won’t leave his side…. that is the LOVE OF CHRIST
If all you prayer points is occupied with you, you and you!…and God is not involved in your request, you lack his true love.
You haven’t spend time to pray the prayers from the heart of the Father… your reason for praying every night is for God to give you legions of angels so that you can manifest greatly… You have truly missed it
Many people of our Generation today! are not really seeking God as they are supposed to, many have turned God to an ATM, that when they need things to satisfy their lust then they remember God
You can see an average Christian pray fervently for power and manifestation but this same people haven’t spend time to pray that God should make them know him more…
With Paul experiences with different dimensions of God and the kind of power he have received, Paul still bring himself down and said “That I may know him, and the power of his resurrection…
.” (Philippians 3:10)
Until you come to the knowledge of the truth… you can’t go far in God.
YOU HAVE TO ACKNOWLEDGE THE TRUTH THAT THE REAL SOURCE TO MY REQUEST IS MY LOVE FOR GOD
2 Timothy 3:7 says “Ever learning, and never able to come to the knowledge of the truth.”.
It is a pity that, all many of us know about God is that, he is a MONEY GIVER…
It is a pity that all many know about God is that God is a GIVER OF POWER and FIRE, and any time an average Christian wake up in the night, the only thing he will reminding God is that “God have given others and he haven’t given him what he asked”
That is an insult to God’s infinite personality
You can see an average Christian carrying long list of Prayer request waiting to go to the place of prayer to Tax God and bombard him with multiple of his/her request
I know there is a place of asking but there is also a place of recognition of his infinite Presence
You don’t just come to God’s presence to bombard him with your request when you have not recognize his Mercy and grace upon your life
The reason Apostle Paul was Beheaded was because he knew that if he die some people will rise and continue from where I stopped
Peter was crucified on the cross upside down so that you and I can see his life and know the reason for his death
He didn’t die for you to receive your desires so as to prove points or so that people on your WhatsApp and Facebook will know that you are working….. The Martyrs death is a sign for their love for God
What is your love for God?
There is call to LOVE GOD not because you will receive breakthrough or power or prosperity or prophecy or impartation but to LOVE HIM FOR WHO HE IS…
that is UNCONDITIONAL LOVE
Let your heart cry be “FATHER TEACH ME TO KNOW YOU AND LOVE YOU MORE”
Jesus didn’t Die on the cross for you to claim Position but to LOVE GOD FOR WHO HE IS and not what you want to receive from him.
Ezekiel 22:30 says “And I sought for a man among them, that should make up the hedge, and stand in the gap before me for the land, that I should not destroy it: BUT I FOUND NONE.”
God is not looking for men of PRAYER REQUEST, he is looking for MEN WHO CAN LOVE HIM AND GIVE THEIR LIFE TO HIM.
Are you available and ready to Love Unconditionally???
