“Then came to him the mother of Zebedee’s children with her sons, worshipping him, and desiring a certain thing of him.
“And he said unto her, What wilt thou? She saith unto him, Grant that these my two sons may sit, the one on thy right hand, and the other on the left, in thy kingdom.
“But Jesus answered and said, Ye know not what ye ask. Are ye able to drink of the cup that I shall drink of, and to be baptized with the baptism that I am baptized with? They say unto him, We are able.”
We serve the God of turnaround, who has committed Himself to continuous turnaround experience in the life of His children Psa. 126:1-6; Ezk. 21:27. No matter the level at which God meets the believer; His promise is to keep lifting until the individual appears at the top Pro. 4:18. We must understand that our God is not a Father Christmas, but a covenant keeping God Psa. 89:34. In essence, there are His conditions that must be met in order to become entitled for what He offers Deu. 28:1-2. Serving God is the master key that gives access to every provision of God 2Chr. 15:12-15.
The Provisions of the kingdom and conditions to experience them.
The scriptures identify forces of wickedness in life; they have the mission to make man sorrow, struggle, and fail in life Eph. 6:12-13, 1Jn. 5:19. Redemption positions the believer far above these forces in life Eph. 2:5-6; 1:20-21. But we don’t actualize this by begging, we serve our way into it Exo. 4:22-23; 23:25-28.
Generational curses are real; they are negative forces that run in a lineage to ruin the glorious destiny of everyone Exo. 20:4-5. New birth exempts a believer from generational curse Gal. 3:13-14. But it doesn’t answer to crying in prayer, we serve our way into freedom Gen. 12:1-3; Job 36:11.
God is not looking for whom to disgrace, He is looking for whom to empower for triumphant living Psa. 89:20-24. Remember, service is commitment to kingdom promotion.
Jesus is Lord!
Father in the name of Jesus, empower me afresh by your Spirit for kingdom service as you turn me into an effective and efficient soul winner Acts 1:8.
Get on the field again, get souls for Christ!
The oil of God on your life shall be on the increase from today!
As you engage in advancing God’s kingdom, your destiny shall advance supenrnatually!
