What Do You See?

What Do You See?

Recently I had a dream that people were receiving parcels and packages and envelopes that carried discouraging news and reports. I could feel the failure, shame and deep disappointment grip their hearts as they read them. I could sense that these reports carried an assignment of the enemy to delay, stunt, and disable growth in God’s people as well as cause deep heart wounding. As I woke up I felt such a strong impression from the Lord: “Don’t accept the delivery!” Much of what I saw in this dream God was revealing was not the truth at all, so I asked Him, “Then what are You saying, Lord?” He answered me with a Scripture:

“The word of the Lord came to me: ‘What do you see, Jeremiah?’ ‘I see the branch of an almond tree,’ I replied. The Lord said to me, ‘You have seen correctly, for I am watching to see that My Word is fulfilled.'” (Jeremiah 1:11-12)

You see, while the enemy wants you to believe that the outcome is set and final in the many areas of your life that have been under fire, God is calling you to see differently and come into agreement with the report of Heaven. Many of us in this season have simply been focusing on the wrong report and been rehearsing the wrong version of our futures.

When Elijah told his servant to go “look toward the sea” in 1 Kings 18, he was giving the same command and teaching him to see differently. After 7 times of looking, he saw a cloud the size of a man’s hand and the long drought ended.

When God called Ezekiel to the valley of dry bones he was teaching him to see differently, to look beyond the bones in the natural to what Heaven’s view and the prognosis was. This season God is stirring us to not just accept what we see but to come into agreement with Heaven so that God’s promises for us are fulfilled.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I want to prophesy over those whose circumstances have been dire and by all outward appearances seem hopeless. I prophesy this week THE REPORT IS CHANGING in Jesus’ name! Whatever you have stacked against you, rise higher and get the download of Heaven for your situation so that you not only overcome it, but you MOVE FORWARD.

DIVINE ARRANGEMENT

DIVINE ARRANGEMENT

 

INTRODUCTION

 

It was a normal day for Saul but it was an arranged day from God! From now your days will be arranged. The dad sent him on an errand like any other kid could have been sent but by the end of the day – He had become a king! He did not lobby for it. He did not bed for it – purely by divine arrangement! We will take the scriptures line upon line to use to pray!

 

DIVINE ARRANGEMENT CAN WORK FOR ANYBODY!

1Sa 9:1  There was a man of Benjamin whose name was Kish, the son of Abiel, son of Zeror, son of Becorath, son of Aphiah, a Benjaminite, a man of wealth.

 

1Sa 9:2  And he had a son whose name was Saul, a handsome young man. There was not a man among the people of Israel more handsome than he. From his shoulders upward he was taller than any of the people.

 

“a man of wealth.”

 

That which is bigger than what money and my family can buy – Arrange it for me oh Lord!

“a handsome young man”

 

God – all that I have – my beauty, my brain ETC – ARRANGE IT FOR YOU, GLORY LORD!

Where no one has ever been to, What no one has ever touched in my lineage – let divine arrangement take me there.

Father, In every area of my life – make me exceptional!

“ From his shoulders upward he was taller than any of the people.”

 

  1. Lord, I do not want to be physically taller – arrange an uncommon height for me!

 

THE DAY OF DIVINE ARRANGEMENT IS LIKE EVERY OTHER NORMAL DAY

1Sa 9:3  Now the donkeys of Kish, Saul’s father, were lost. So Kish said to Saul his son, “Take one of the young men with you, and arise, go and look for the donkeys.”

 

1Sa 9:4  And he passed through the hill country of Ephraim and passed through the land of Shalishah, but they did not find them. And they passed through the land of Shaalim, but they were not there. Then they passed through the land of Benjamin but did not find them.

 

 

 

On the day that promotion is arranged, let me be selected for an errand.

Lord – let today be my day of visitation.

As I step out of this prayer session, I receive a divinely arranged call to greatness!

In the name of Jesus, let my legs walk me into a divine program

 

 

“passed through the land of Shalishah but did not find them.” and ” passed through the land of Benjamin but did not find them.”

 

  1. I decree concerning you (insert your name) all your setbacks will be arranged to favor you!

 

  1. Let every setback in my life become an arranged platform for my coronation.

 

FRUSTRATIONS MUST NOT BE ALLOWED TO DESTROY A DIVINE PLAN

1Sa 9:5  When they came to the land of Zuph, Saul said to his servant who was with him, “Come, let us go back, lest my father cease to care about the donkeys and become anxious about us.”

 

1Sa 9:6  But he said to him, “Behold, there is a man of God in this city, and he is a man who is held in honor; all that he says comes true. So now let us go there. Perhaps he can tell us the way we should go.”

 

Lord, while the power of divine arrangement is working behind the scene, let me not be breakdown!

Arrange a helper into my life who will initial my walk into a divine arrangement!

Let my pains push me to you! Let my cries be heard in heaven!

Make me a source of help to people who need a divine arrangement

Every demonic and evil arrangement intended to derail me, STOP

I decree that I will not take that step that will make me miss or walk away from divine arrangement,

  1. DIVINE ARRANGEMENT STARTS DAYS AND A LONG TIME BEFORE IT MANIFESTS

 

1Sa 9:14  So they went up to the city. As they were entering the city, they saw Samuel coming out toward them on his way up to the high place.

 

1Sa 9:15  Now the day before Saul came, the LORD had revealed to Samuel:

 

Every arrangement that you have been working for me, FAST TRACK it – let it manifest today!

The one that you have arranged to help me – talk to him.

No matter how far away they are – the one you have ordained to pull me up – speak to him loud and clear!

Every helper that is the divinely arranged plan for my future – manifest!

Every power blocking the arrangement Heaven has made for me – be destroyed permanently!

DIVINE ARRANGEMENT IS REAL!

1Sa 9:16  “Tomorrow about this time I will send to you a man from the land of Benjamin, and you shall anoint him to be prince over my people Israel. He shall save my people from the hand of the Philistines. For I have seen my people, because their cry has come to me.”

 

” Tomorrow about this time”

 

Lord! Speak now that my tomorrow will be alright!

” I will send to you a man from the land of Benjamin”

 

Send me Lord to where the arrangement that will give me rest has been made in the name of Jesus!

” and you shall anoint him to be prince over my people Israel”

 

By reason of the anointing of Divine Arrangement on my destiny today – coronate me as King!

By reason of the anointing of Divine Arrangement on my destiny today – I will not struggle again!

DIVINE ARRANGEMENT LEADS TO DIVINE IDENTITY

1Sa 9:17  When Samuel saw Saul, the LORD told him, “Here is the man of whom I spoke to you! He it is who shall restrain my people.”

 

1Sa 9:18  Then Saul approached Samuel in the gate and said, “Tell me where is the house of the seer?”

 

LORD, before I arrive at the place of greatness, arrange a “space” for me.

Lord! By the anointing of divine arrangement – Identify me and promote me!

DIVINE ARRANGEMENT SOLVES PROBLEMS EASILY

1Sa 9:20  As for your donkeys that were lost three days ago, do not set your mind on them, for they have been found. And for whom is all that is desirable in Israel? Is it not for you and for all your father’s house?”

 

Lord! arrange ease into my life!

Lord! arrange ease into my family!

Lord! arrange ease into this ministry!

Lord! arrange ease into Our nations!

Lord I submit – let divine arrangement sort me out in the name of Jesus!

IN JESUS NAME! AMEN!

Righteous People in Wrong Places

Righteous People in Wrong Places

(1Co 10:5) But with many of them God was not well pleased: for they were overthrown in the wilderness.
(1Co 10:6) Now these things were our examples, to the intent we should not lust after evil things, as they also lusted.
(1Co 10:7) Neither be ye idolaters, as were some of them; as it is written, The people sat down to eat and drink and rose up to play.
(1Co 10:8) Neither let us commit fornication, as some of them committed, and fell in one day three and twenty thousand.
(1Co 10:9) Neither let us tempt Christ, as some of them also tempted, and were destroyed of serpents.
(1Co 10:10) Neither murmur ye, as some of them also murmured, and were destroyed of the destroyer.
(1Co 10:11) Now all these things happened unto them for examples: and they are written for our admonition, upon whom the ends of the world are come.
(1Co 10:12) Wherefore let him that thinketh he standeth take heed lest he fall.

Better Men Have Fallen

Sometimes we get the impression that the children of Israel were just a bunch of losers that were too ungrateful and selfish to deserve to be God’s chosen people. I believe that if we could know some of these individuals as real people and not just as the children of Israel, we would find that they were probably no different than you and I. Only they did not live in the dispensation of grace as you and I do today.  Many times, their sins were dealt with quickly and severely.

I believe we might see a different picture. A picture of good people faced with troubles, and temptations, the fault as many of us, to choose complaint, murmuring, manipulation, deceitfulness to solve their problems rather than trusting God to solve their dilemma.

You see that’s our example. That God’s chosen people on the way to prosperity and the promise land got lost in their hearts and minds for forty years running from what we all run from many times. They yielded to the master’s direction, and provision. Good people, promised people, chosen people, but on the wrong place.

The pull of two paths

Proverbs 9:1-6 / 9:13-18

  • Describes two voices from two houses Wisdom and The Foolish Woman, and they cry out to the SIMPLE. Who is the SIMPLE? You and Me. God’s creation that are ignorant of the spiritual things, the eternal rewards (Wisdom) or the eternal consequences (Foolish Woman’s House).

  • You can read for yourself and see the difference between the two.

  • You will find Wisdom or the Kingdom of God, offers information, knowledge, direction, rest, understanding, and purpose. So complicated and much too inconvenient to consider quickly.

  • Then the Foolish Woman, who offers every kind of pleasure rather than understanding.

  • Her knowledge comes easy and from the surface. She seduces her victims and draws them in at their weakest moments only to find themselves deceived and trapped in the belly of hell.

7:12-19

Describes her ways. Look at how she traps and seduces the simple.

It is our fall time after time, not so much that we have deliberately ran to sin, but that behind the curtain of what is seen, and felt and touched there is the supernatural, the truth of our everyday decisions. Our destination is heaven but roads of dishonesty, lust, and greed many times sidetrack us.

Abraham walked down the path of Dishonesty -(see Gen_12:10-20)

(Pro 26:27) Whoso diggeth a pit shall fall therein: and he that rolleth a stone, it will return upon him.

Many times in war, soldiers would dip pits to trap their enemy, only sometimes in the confusion of battle they,, at times, would fall into their own pit. Thus, if you are deceitful eventually, you might find yourself trapped in your deceit. The same for the rock returning upon you. Soldiers would push a rock up to the top of a hill or cliff to push off on passing opponents, only sometimes in the attempt to defend themselves with their device, they were flattened themselves. Deceit sometimes catches up with us. This is often the problem with lying; eventually, you have to lie to cover up your lies.

Pro 20:17 Bread of deceit is sweet to a man, but afterwards his mouth shall be filled with gravel.

  • David was a Righteous Man in the Wrong place:

  • The Road of Impurity – 2 Sam 11:2

DISCOURAGEMENT – (Elijah)

(Psa 42:4) When I remember these things, I pour out my soul in me: for I had gone with the multitude, I went with them to the house of God, with the voice of joy and praise, with a multitude that kept holyday.
(Psa 42:5) Why art thou cast down, O my soul? and why art thou disquieted in me? hope thou in God: for I shall yet praise him for* the help of his countenance.

DISOBEDIENCE- (Jonah)

Jonah found himself continually going down from the presences of the Lord until down brought him to the belly of the fish at the bottom of the sea.

“Sin will take farther than you want to go and keep you longer than you want to stay.”

Righteous People sometimes in Wrong Places!

MY PLACE WILL NOT BE TAKEN

MY PLACE WILL NOT BE TAKEN

 

 

 

INTRODUCTION
There is nothing as sad and frustrating in life than been harassed and forced to leave a position that is rightly yours and that you have worked for – for years! A lot of things can cause this and as you know I prefer a preventive approach to spiritual things!

The king Xerxes called a party/banquet for six months with unlimited alcohol and in the state of drunkenness asked Vashti the Queen to come and do a fashion parade and she refused. He was advised to depose and remove her!

 

FACTORS THAT CAUSES REMOVAL FROM PEOPLE’S PLACES

  1. WRONG DECISION AND WRONG PROJECT
    Est 1:3 In the third year of his reign he gave a banquet for all his officials and administrators. The armies of Persia and Media were present, as well as the governors and noblemen of the provinces. 
    Est 1:4 For six whole months he made a show of the riches of the imperial court with all its splendor and majesty.
  2. Lord – this year I will not start a project that will destroy me!
    2. Any project/decision that anyone who has a say on my life wants to take and will hurt me – TERMINATE IT.
    3. The spirit of error that causes a man to make the wrong decision, I bind and cast out of my life in Jesus name!
    4. I, (insert your name) will not take a wrong turn again for the rest of my life!

” For six whole months”
5. The next six months of my life will not be spent in foolishness and vanity.
6. That year of failure will not come in my life
7. Every decision by someone close to me that will destroy be – I abort them in Jesus name
8. I, (insert your name) will not suffer for another person’s stupidity.

Est 1:5 After that, the king gave a banquet for all the people in the capital city of Susa, rich and poor alike. It lasted a whole week and was held in the gardens of the royal palace.

  1. In whatever way I am derailing and rotting away secretly now, stop in Jesus name!
    10. The road that leads to destruction – I exit you NOW in Jesus name.
  2. HABITS AND ADDICTION
    Est 1:8 There were no limits on the drinks; the king had given orders to the palace servants that everyone could have as much as they wanted.
    Est 1:9 Meanwhile, inside the royal palace Queen Vashti was giving a banquet for the women.
  3. Every addiction and habit that is programmed to destroy me and give away my place in the future – uproot in the name of Jesus
    12. In the name of Jesus, I will not use my hand to destroy my destiny!
    13. I break the influence of negative habits in my life and family!
    14. Any poisonous behavior in my life that I am celebrating – open my eyes!
  4. INTOXICATION
    Est 1:10 By the seventh day, KING XERXES WAS FEELING HAPPY BECAUSE OF SO MUCH WINE. And he asked his seven personal servants, Mehuman, Biztha, Harbona, Bigtha, Abagtha, Zethar, and Carkas,
    Est 1:11 to bring Queen Vashti to him. The king wanted her to wear her crown and let his people and his officials see how beautiful she was.
  5. Lord, every evil power that will influence anyone who has authority over me to abuse me – I dethrone them
    16. Everything that you have given me that makes me beautiful will not be compromised!
    17. Everything that you have given me that makes me beautiful will not be abused and taken for granted!
  6. LACK OF TACT AND WISDOM

Est 1:12 The king’s servants told Queen Vashti what he had said, but she refused to go to him, and this made him terribly angry.
Est 1:15 The king said to them, “Queen Vashti refused to come to me when I sent my servants for her. What does the law say I should do about that?”

  1. Lord give me the wisdom to manage tough situations I am going through now.
    19. I am at my wit end Lord – intervene and help me!
    20. Even when I missed it – have mercy on my
    21. Every event that has or wants to diminish my quality or worth – I cancel them.
  2. LACK OF A VOICE AND NEGATIVE ADVICE/ADVISE
    See how these advisers added fuel to the fire!

Est 1:16 Then Memucan told the king and the officials: Your Majesty, Queen Vashti has not only embarrassed you, but she has insulted your officials and everyone else in all the provinces. 
Est 1:17 The women in the kingdom will hear about this, and they will refuse to respect their husbands. They will say, “If Queen Vashti doesn’t obey her husband, why should we?” 
Est 1:18 Before this day is over, the wives of the officials of Persia and Media will find out what Queen Vashti has done, and they will refuse to obey their husbands. They won’t respect their husbands, and their husbands will be angry with them.

  1. Every adviser agitating for my removal from my place! Silence them!
    23. Any mouth that is recommending pain for me – shut it oh lord!

Gen 37:20 Let’s kill him and throw him into a pit and say that some wild animal ate him. Then we’ll see what happens to those dreams.”
Gen 37:21 Reuben heard this and tried to protect Joseph from them. “Let’s not kill him,” he said.

  1. Even when it’s hopeless – raise a voice for me
    25. THIS WEEK, THIS MONTH, RAISE A VOICE OF PROTECTION FOR ME!
  2. STRANGE DECREES AND POLICY
    One single stroke of a pen from a government office can kill people!
    Est 1:19 If it pleases Your Majesty, issue a royal proclamation that Vashti may never again appear before the king. Have it written into the laws of Persia and Media, so that it can never be changed. Then give her place as queen to some better woman. 
    Est 1:20 When your proclamation is made known all over this huge empire, every woman will treat her husband with proper respect, whether he’s rich or poor.” 
    Est 1:21 The king and his officials liked this idea, and the king did what Memucan suggested.
  3. Every proposal targeted towards me to cause me pain – STOP!
    27. Every agreement targeted towards me to cause me to lose my place – STOP!
    28. Every mind and life planning as we speak to depose me – distract them! Keep them busy!

Psa 92:8 But you will rule over all of us forever, 
Psa 92:9 and your hateful enemies will be scattered and then destroyed.

  1. Every conspiracy against my destiny – Cancel it.
    30. Every form of irresponsibility and negligence in our governance – Lord purge it!
    31. Every kingmaker in Nigeria that wants to install pain – depose them!

WHEN GOD OPEN YOUR EYES

WHEN GOD OPEN YOUR EYES

  1. YOU WILL SEE CLEARLY
    You can look and not see! You can look and it looks like you are seeing but you may be not seeing what you should see. Three people can look at you and see different things. What they see will determine the way they see you and respond to you! After now – may you see clearly!

BLIND MAN WHO SAW MEN WALKING LIKE TREES
Mar 8:23 And he took the blind man by the hand and led him out of the village, and when he had spit on his eyes and laid his hands on him, he asked him, “Do you see anything?”
Mar 8:24 And he looked up and said, “I see people, but they look like trees, walking.” 
Mar 8:25 Then Jesus laid his hands on his eyes again; and he opened his eyes, his sight was restored, and he saw everything clearly.

  1. Lord, open my eyes, internal and external and cause me to see clearly!
    2. I am begging you Lord, the power, grace, and freedom to see clearly – give me now!

” And he took the blind man by the hand and led him out”
3. In every area of my life that I have been blind for years – let your light shine and remove the darkness
4. Take my hand and lead me to where my breakthrough is!

” And he looked up and said, “I see people, but they look like trees, walking.”
5. Every partial sight that I have been carrying that is leading my life the wrong way – Lord, make me see clearly! very clearly!
6. What I need to see, What I need to know, What I need to observe – show me!
7. Every obstruction that is still blocking my sight – remove it now!

” Then Jesus laid his hands on his eyes again; and he opened his eyes, his sight was restored, and he saw everything clearly.” 
8. Holy Spirit, Please! Please lay hands on me again – until I see clearly!
9. I command ( insert name) – see clearly

Remove the log in your eyes
Mat 7:3 Why do you see the speck that is in your brother’s eye, but do not notice the log that is in your own eye?
Mat 7:4 Or how can you say to your brother, ‘Let me take the speck out of your eye,’ when there is the log in your own eye?
Mat 7:5 You hypocrite, first take the log out of your own eye, and then you will see clearly to take the speck out of your brother’s eye.

  1. My Father, please remove every form of log blocking my sight from making progress
    11. Every hypocrisy that is making me focus on the minor – free me!
    12. Every ideology of men that I have held “religiously” unto for years that is killing me and my dreams – destroy it the hard way!
    13. Everyone I am killing with my mean and condemnation attitude – I repent
    14. Every word that has been spoken to me that has made me believe I have no future – delete them from my software
  2. YOU WILL SEE THREATS

Elisha, King of Syria and His Servant

2Ki 6:9 Each time, Elisha would send this warning to the king of Israel: “Don’t go near there. That’s where the Syrian troops have set up camp.” 
2Ki 6:10 So the king would warn the Israelite troops in that place to be on guard. 
2Ki 6:11 The king of Syria was furious when he found out what was happening. He called in his officers and asked, “Which one of you has been telling the king of Israel our plans?” 
2Ki 6:12 “None of us, Your Majesty,” one of them answered. “It’s an Israelite named Elisha. He’s a prophet so he can tell his king everything–even what you say in your own room.”

  1. Wherever the enemy is planning to destroy me – expose their plans publicly
    “Each time”
    17. Each time the kingdom of darkness is planning for my downfall – EACH TIME – they will fail!
    18. I decree, for every plan of hell against me, I will always be one step ahead.
    19. Father, every path of pain and destruction that is hidden, with “Holy Ghost infrared” I escape them!
    20. The warning I must hear and obey to, I will hear and take heed!

” Elisha would send this warning to the king of Israel”
21. Surround me with people whose eyesight and insight are sharper than mine!

“” Which one of you has been telling the king of Israel our plans?”
22. Every traitor that I have been carrying around for years – expose, expel and expunge

2Ki 6:14 He ordered his best troops to go there with horses and chariots. They marched out during the night and surrounded the town. 
23. Every order that has been released to hurt me and my family member – be canceled in the name of Jesus!
24. Every ” march” toward me to cause me pain – be terminated!

2Ki 6:15 When the servant of the man of God rose early in the morning and went out, behold, an army with horses and chariots was all around the city. And the servant said, “Alas, my master! What shall we do?” 
2Ki 6:16 He said, “Do not be afraid, for those who are with us are more than those who are with them.” 
2Ki 6:17 Then Elisha prayed and said, “O LORD, please open his eyes that he may see.” So the LORD opened the eyes of the young man, and he saw, and behold, the mountain was full of horses and chariots of fire all around Elisha.
25. Every response of hell to my new sight and revelation – backfire in Jesus name.
26. The laws of grace, the power of victory, the angels of protection – what are you waiting for? I command you, ARISE AND FIGHT FOR ME!

” for those who are with us are more than those who are with them”
27. In any area that I have been losing the battle because of lack of help -Raise my hand and fight with me!
28. I reject fear, legit or not – I reject you!
29. Open my eyes to see that help is here!
30. The powers and their human agent that has refused to back off me, THE NAME OF JESUS – STOP!
31. I (insert name) will never lack help!

2Ki 6:18 And when the Syrians came down against him, Elisha prayed to the LORD and said, “Please strike this people with blindness.” So he struck them with blindness in accordance with the prayer of Elisha.

  1. Every eyes spiritual or physical that is stressing me – SHUT THEM!

FOR IN JESUS NAME, WE HAVE PRAYED. AMEN.
