“Your Attitude determines your Tragettory and it is Time bound ”
Inspiration gotten from Deuteronomy 1
Attitude is very key to every human existence. when it even comes to waiting for God it is not even how long we wait it is “how”we wait , when we wait the “Attitude” and there is time for everything … you having the right attitude at the wrong time cannot yield positive result … so we must put on the right attitude at the right time… when God says go you must go … you must put on the armour or the attitude of faith because your life can depend on it, when you act irreplaceable God can change his mind and your punishment can and will be supervised by him and it is not a new thing that “no one can stand against the Lord ” looking at the children of Israel in unbelief they disobeyed God …. they where to go possess the land instead of them to go with boldness and work by faith and not by sight they choose wrong by wearing the garment of unbelief , groaning then they suffered rejection and unspeakable pain in the wilderness …. as short journey became a lengthy one i.e. begin to run in circles. In the book of Deuteronomy 1 they employed the right attitude but at the wrong time … when they decided to gird up their loins it was too late God’s anger was already kindled and he had swore …
In the bible it is written “there is time for everything” so it is imperative we put up the right attitude at the right time …. even Jesus knew this , you ought to know that there is a time when we cannot afford to “show weakness” it is surprising to see how the children of Israel knew God by his act before their very eyes and yet they get scared when they encounter new challenges such as going to war when they need to …
it is not easy to put up this attitude all that needs to be learnt is that we are to.make conscious effort to master the act of wearing the right attitude at the right time.
There will be no one to pass the blame to because everyone is responsible for their choices for the attitude they put up at certain time of their lives and that Attitude can determine if you will make it to the promise land…
It is true that people will come into our lives some are bound to leave, some are bound to stay … Because the people who are predestined to stay in our lives and make positive influence..does not negate the fact that we can drive them away.
yes they are bound to stay but our attitude can drive them away or not even make us meet them in the first place…. people make impact in the lives of people even without them knowing i.e. creating remarkable turn around (attitudinal change) , some people have drifted away worthy friends , impactful friends because of their Attitude.
Our attitude can be a danger to us… that is why the concept of saving people from themselves exist.
By every standard we cannot go a day without using attitude. some people have changed the tragetory of their development, focus because of their Attitude. People have missed life opportunities , door opening opportunities because of their Attitude.
Common bad attitude; fear, procrastination, cirsimg, pride, envy,lying etc
How can you give up without even trying ? it is a bad attitude .. i the writer is guilty of this but i am not a failure because I have identified it as a weakness and I am making a conscious effort to remove it.
What promise land ?
That your envisage destination.
The pinnacle of achievement.
The circumference of increase.
Place or point of fulfilment.
When do we need to put forth the right attitude ?
Everytime (attitude is contegious)
How do we do it ?
You engage the work by ” faith and not by sight syndrome”
You ask God for help.
We must be humble.
Make conscious effort to remove or suppress those volatile and self destructive attitude we have, change is a constant so You Can.
I pray for you today you will not put up the right attitude at the right time.
Everyone needs to “Turn” Deuteronomy 1:7 up next
The book of Deuteronomy 1 … This book just told me of how long I and my family have tarried in that place, it is time to possess. It is a decree from God “Turn you and take your Journey ” verse 8 “Go and possess the land which the Lord sware unto your fathers” Father help me to possess the land which you have set before me, which is not just a land but an inheritance… Where I am is not my present size, this not the way I started I see the increase but I need your speed to pursue overtake and recover for my strength fail me and an I made vulnerable by my thoughts, you resonate those words in my ear that I should “go in and possess the inheritance you swore unto me” I just pray lord in your mercy move me because it is clear to myself that I need a change, my burdens needs to be lifted, the thoughts of the welfare of those I left behind makes my heart skip, please in this transition ensure I don’t stop half-way, tho it seem so uncertain, very confusing I beseech you restore me and fill me up.
It is not a destination it is a transition, you must refuse to give up there and you must pray to see it and get there… May the lord open our understanding.
1 Timothy 1:12 12I thank Christ Jesus our LORD, who has given me strength, that he considered me trustworthy, appointing me to his service.
I stand amazed
Psalm 69:9 “For the zeal of thy house consumes me and the insults of those who insult you fall on me ”
Colossians 2:7 “Let your lives overflow”
with thanksgiving for all he has done. The bible recognizes that you need more than just a flow but an Over-flow. It is when you have an over-flow that is when your heart can send forth thanks-giving to God and bring down more blessings and deliverances.
We ought not to remain satisfied with less because we are suppose to Thrive and not Survive.
Eldad and Medad- ( Numbers 11: 29) They were asked to converge before the tabernacle but they were both absent and the spirit that was upon Moses came upon the 70 elders and yet the two men that were absent caught the over-flow and then they spoke in tongues. so the overflow is vital, they received it and their life changed entirely. So you need it.
When you have an Over-flow people will envy you …
Numbers 11:29 29 But Moses replied, “Are you jealous for my sake? I wish that all the LORD’s people were prophets and that the LORD would put his Spirit on them!”
What is an over-flow?
It is defined; as the excess or surplus not able to be accommodated by an available space.
From the above definition I can extract the following “not able to be accommodated” which takes us to;
“Then I said, I will not make mention of him, nor speak any more in his name. But his word was in my heart as a burning fire shut up in my bones, and I was weary from holding it back, and I could not.”
From the above verse I made to understand that if you have an over-flow you will be tired of holding it in and you will find out that it is more peaceful and fulfilling to utilize that power than hold it in… you will no longer have room for fear, timidity you will see yourself witnessing about Christ at any opportunity you have and to every body. Beloveth it is not negotiable we need an over-flow, we need more than enough to manifest as children of the most-high.
You want to Love your enemies you need an over-flow because you need more than the average kind of love to love your enemies.
We were not given just any kind of Love by the father but a supreme kind of love (Agape Love) which is an over-flow, which was manifested in the perseverance of Jesus as he endured the cross, no one would watch his or her son humiliated, beaten just for the sake of saving those who crucified him, that is an Overflow
The bible says in
Hebrew 12:2 ” looking unto Jesus, the author and finisher of our faith, who for the joy that was set before Him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is set down at the right hand of the throne of God.” permit me to para-phrase ;
For the Love he had for us (You and I) he endured the cross… Jesus Christ is a representation of Love to the word not just the son of God. He is a perfect symbol of Love.
When you have an overflow you receive that kind of testimony you cannot hide even when you want to, it is that testimony that announces you for decoration.
Your cup will run over in Jesus name.
When do you need an Over-flow?
If you find you are struggling to forgive, give, pray, joyful and so many more you need an over-flow.
People that have an over-flow of the fruit of the spirit they have gone above and beyond in their desperation to meet with God and possess that power that will enable them manifest like him, power to Love, heal the sick, show forth wisdom the mind cannot comprehend, to discern, patience, humility and so much more.
If you are to look at challenges in the face and your resolve is to be stable, unshakable you need an over-flow you can have an overflow in faith, Anointing (Holy-spirit), grace of which that is not for us to give but it is freely given unto us all but we must understand that grace on everyone’s life is in degrees but it is always sufficient a practical example of one who had an over-flow of grace was David, he fell short so many times but that grace spoke. I.e. when you have an over-flow you don’t need to struggle because it will speak with or without your consent and when it speaks there is always a lifting.
I pray today that Grace, mercy, favor will speak for you today. In Jesus name.
Proverb 24:10 “If you faint in the day of adversity, your strength is small” If you see yourself fainting during adversity, you need an Overflow, the strength you have is not sufficient enough, “The lord is our strength” if the lord be your strength as you decree and you still faint then you need more of him…
Why do you need an Overflow?
-If you are not contented with the level you find yourself.
– If you are tired of your situation.
– If you want to live above the average.
-If you want to exceed your predecessors.
-If you want to posses the inheritance God has giving, you need an overflow.
-If you want that Joy that transcends human understanding you need an over-flow.
-If you a Joy that will discourage your enemies and your circumstances you need an over-flow.
-If you seek an increase in all dimensions you need an over-flow
-if you are ready to be more than a conqueror you need an overflow.
-If you are tired of surviving and you want to thrive you need an overflow.
-if you are tired of the minimum you need an over-flow.
As far as the blessing of God is concerned we need more than just enough, we need abundance of supply in, Grace, Love, peace, Testimonies, Breakthrough, wisdom, anointing.
psalm 23:5 “Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies: thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over.” We need an Overflow.
(a) Father fill me till I over-flow.
(b) Father defend your interest in my life.
(c) Mercy speak for me
(d) Father take me to the rock that is higher than I.
(e) Father I am tired of being ordinary, single me out for decoration.
Christ the Hope of Glory, the lifter of my Head…. I stay confident of my emancipation from the guilt of my past because in you there is no condemnation.
Light is a representation of hope, guidiance , step worthy movements , salvation , peace , Jesus ….
Jesus said in as much as he is on this earth he is the light of the world so when he died on the cross he replicated himself in us so we ought to manifest as the light … We should be a beam of hope to the depressed , people must glorify God in us, men and women must reckon with us …
Genesis 1:4 “God saw the light and it was good” when we manifest as that light we delight God , we become a sweet smelling savour to him.. gone are the days when I use to be ashamed of the gospel .. how can I be ashamed of the God that saved me from myself , my decisions …
It is like a man saying he is ashamed of the first aid box that he used to heal himself because he wants to show he is infalliable … When we live a sinful life we fail to walk in that light which has been given to us, We abandon that hope , peace , step worthy direction …. I am happy to be filled again with this boldness …. I am no longer ashamed of the gospel , I am from above because my father is and I will not operate under the limitations of this world … My joy must sprout up , my head must be lifted in my humble beginings even now I saw what the Lord could do
It is all because of you … The challenges have shaped me your Logos are comforting , for I know now that by the words in John 6:44
“I was drawn to him by grace ” -Akpederi Raymond
The feeling Is simply magical …. And everyday I live my life knowing I am. Terrible person to love , you did not have to do it but you did it anyway, I am thankful … I grieved you countless number of times when my resolve becomes submissive to external forces … For you see the heart of the stranger and you deal deligently with it … My heart is heavy father I need an exchange , you said;
Matthew 11:28-29King James Version (KJV)
28 Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.
