DO THINGS ALWAYS HAVE TO BE HARD? The answer is capital No, beloved, they do not. It is only the way of the transgressor that is suppose to be hard. Pro. 13:15 Good understanding giveth favour: but the way of transgressors is hard. If you are not the wicked how can your ways be hard? Pro.4:19 The way of the wicked is as darkness: they know not at what they stumble. When your life ceases to be "yoke easy and burden light", then you know you have strayed from the path of life. = If God created our life to be hard, He wouldn't have been moved when the Jews cried to Him in Egypt to be deliver from their hard task master. And He answered them. = If God Created Our Life To Be Difficult He Wouldn't Have Listened To The Prayer Of Hannah In The Bible = If God Created Things Ayo Be Hard For Us He Wouldn't Have Told Us To Come To Him For Less Burden. Matt. 11:28- WHY ARE OUR LIFE HARD? OUR LIFE IS HARD BECAUSE -1- Our Life Is Hard Because We Don't Know The Ways Of God If God could make known His ways to Moses in the Old Testament Era, it stands to reason, God is more than willing to do same for us today. Ps. 103:7 He made known his ways unto Moses, his acts unto the children of Israel. What Is The Ways Of God? Please understand the ways of God means the laws of God, His methods of administration; the principles on which He governs mankind, and the conditions on which He will save people. God made His ways known to Moses because he was faithful Num. 12:7 My servant Moses is not so, who is faithful in all mine house. -2 - Our Life Is Hard Because We Don't Take Everything To God In Prayer. SONG:- WHAT A FRIEND WE HAVE IN JESUS -3- Our Life Is Hard Because We Have Allowed The Enemy To Interfere In Our Destiny. If we are not hot in the Lord, if we are not spiritual and alert the enemy can always interfere negatively in our lives. Matt. 13:24-28 24 Another parable put he forth unto them, saying, The kingdom of heaven is likened unto a man which sowed good seed in his field: 25 But while men slept, his enemy came and sowed tares among the wheat, and went his way. 26 But when the blade was sprung up, and brought forth fruit, then appeared the tares also. 27 So the servants of the householder came and said unto him, Sir, didst not thou sow good seed in thy field? from whence then hath it tares? 28 He said unto them, An enemy hath done this. The servants said unto him, Wilt thou then that we go and gather them up? The Bible tells us to Watch and Pray You may never escape from the the hardship of life if you neglect prayer and watchfulness. Matt. 26:40-41 40 And he cometh unto the disciples, and findeth them asleep, and saith unto Peter, What, could ye not watch with me one hour? 41 Watch and pray, that ye enter not into temptation: the spirit indeed is willing, but the flesh is weak. -4- Our Life Is Hard Because We a Listen To & Take Wrong Counsels From Others Instead of God. The story of Amnon, Tamar and Jonadab is a lesson not to take counsel from just anybody. 2Sam. 13: -5- Our Life Become Hard Because We Stray From The Way Of God Hard life is the portion of many in the church of Jesus because they went astray. Ps. 119:67 Before I was afflicted I went astray: but now have I kept thy word. To keep His Word is to walk in obedience to Him in all areas of your life. Pro. 15:10 Correction is grievous unto him that forsaketh the way: and he that hateth reproof shall die. -6- Our Life Become a Hard When We Allow Our Circumstances To Control. "I am not a product of my Circumstances. I am a product of my decisions" Ps. 137:1-4 1 By the rivers of Babylon, there we sat down, yea, we wept, when we remembered Zion. 2 We hanged our harps upon the willows in the midst thereof. 3 For there they that carried us away captive required of us a song; and they that wasted us required of usmirth, saying, Sing us one of the songs of Zion. 4 How shall we sing the LORD’S song in a strange land? It is not what you are going through but how you respond to it. = Please Be Informed In The Beginning It Was Not So...Matt.19:8 What was not so in your life in the beginning I decree and declare it will not be so in your life now.
ACTION, IS THE NAME OF THE GAME 2Tim.1:6-7 6 Wherefore I put thee in remembrance that thou stir up the gift of God, which is in thee by the putting on of my hands. 7 For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind. - The Lord is saying today, don't fall into the trap of passively waiting for things that will never come. - The kingdom of God is voice-activated and motion-activated - The Lord is saying, what you do with what I have already said is much potent than what you are waiting for me to say or do further. - Things can be different, so ask yourself, what is that in your hand? What can you do? You have asked for instruction, and God's Word to you is to do what you can with what you have and stick with it. Despise not the days of small beginnings. Refuse to get bogged down in the snare of perfectionism. Everything doesn't have to be perfect. Even God doesn't plant anything in a row, so waiting for things to line up "just so" is foolishness. - Step out. Act now. Don't look what the enemy is threatening but look at what I have promised. - Child of God, do you know that things can be a lot different in your life if you will just shake yourself from the lethargy of religious thinking and take action. Remember you are not stuck in a place of no escape or no exist. God's kingdom does not come with observation LK. 17:20 And when he was demanded of the Pharisees, when the kingdom of God should come, he answered them and said, The kingdom of God cometh not with observation: - If you are merely going to wait for what God is going to do next - nothing will change in your life. How many of God's children have squandered decades of their life waiting for what they are sure God will do next when the next move was already upon them, but they refuse to see it. Some of God's children are waiting for a special move of the Spirit, while all the time the Spirit was already moving amidst them. - Beloved, you need to be ready to actively participate in the activities of your life instead waiting for things to happen. Please understand watching and waiting does not bring changes You have to do something. Observing is passive. The opposite of passive is participation. God is calling you to participate with Him and see Him do things in your life you least expect. PRAYERS TO WAKE YOU UP TO ACTION - All satanic manipulations aimed at changing my destiny, be frustrated, in the name of Jesus. - Oh Lord I command all demonic reverse gears installed to hinder my progress to be roasted, in the name of Jesus. - My Father, mt Father, I pray every spirit of limitation against my breakthroughs, die, in the name of Jesus. - In the miracle working name of Jesus, I decree every evil game plan over my success, die, . - Every evil game plan over my success, die, in the name of Jesus.
2Chro. 20:20 And they rose early in the morning and went forth into the Wilderness of Tekoa; and as they went forth, Jehoshaphat stood and said, “Hear me, O Judah, and ye inhabitants of Jerusalem: Believe in the Lord your God; so shall ye be established. Believe His prophets; so shall ye prosper.” It is the Word of God you believe that work for you. Therefore, your ability to believe the Word of God is extremely important as to what happen to you. When you believe God it is for your good. All over the world the Spirit of the Lord is opening up the heavens over people's life. I see a release of God's blessings to you from His storehouse. The Lord is sending His rain on every barren area of your life. You are about to see the blessing for all the works of your hands. Every time you were overlooked, ignored, shut down, you are about to receive that which rightfully belongs to you. Instead of borrowing, the Lord says you will be in a position to give away to others. For I am about to release that which you have asked me for even that which you dreamed about 2 years ago. For I am going back into time and righting the wrongs and you will see a harvest of My glory in your life! Deut. 15:6 For the LORD thy God blesseth thee, as he promised thee: and thou shalt lend unto many nations, but thou shalt not borrow; and thou shalt reign over many nations, but they shall not reign over thee. The Lord is going to pour out such a blessing upon you that all will see and know that the Lord is with you. He is going to cause you to grow even when everything around you seems to be dying. He is going to increase your miracle supply. You are going to a new level in me. Even though the Lord have been releasing things in increments, He is teaching you how to handle it so that when it all comes in a lump sum you are able to manage it with excellence. The prodigal Son did not survive in the time of his plenty because he didn't know how to manage it. But that shall not be your case in the name of Jesus Christ. Lk. 15:13-16 13 “Not long after that, the younger son got together all he had, set off for a distant country and there squandered his wealth in wild living. 14 After he had spent everything, there was a severe famine in that whole country, and he began to be in need. 15 So he went and hired himself out to a citizen of that country, who sent him to his fields to feed pigs. 16 He longed to fill his stomach with the pods that the pigs were eating, but no one gave him anything. Don't be impatient. Don't be afraid. For the Lord have not forgotten you. Time and time again, the Lord will remind you again of His faithfulness. The heavens are opening up over your life. Even with the employment situation says the Lord. Expect God's favor to cause people to begin to give you special treatment. For in this season the Lord will make out of you His very important personality. Be reminded that God has not forgotten you Some of us the Lord has been teaching us of the principles of seed time and harvest. Because those who sow sparingly will reap sparingly. Those who sow bountifully will reap bountifully. Generosity is the antidote to lack. The cycle is breaking today. Look at the seed I have provided for you says the Lord. Child of God, don't eat your seed. Instead, let the Lord use it to release the harvest you are believing God for.

If you are a child of God you would have found out that the battles of life are real. well, if you haven't witness any battle in life you might be excusable, however the battles of life are real and sometimes could be very intense. They could be spiritual and may be physical in some cases. Job was a man in the Bible who experienced first hand the battles of life and had to pen this down for us in the verse of Scripture below: Job 14:1 Man that is born of a woman is of few days, and full of trouble. And you and I knew the kind of war Job had to fight in his days and generation.He was stripped of all he had including his children because of this battles. However, his later end was better than his beginning. Job 42:10-12 10 And the LORD turned the captivity of Job, when he prayed for his friends: also the LORD gave Job twice as much as he had before. 11 Then came there unto him all his brethren, and all his sisters, and all they that had been of his acquaintance before, and did eat bread with him in his house: and they bemoaned him, and comforted him over all the evil that the LORD had brought upon him: every man also gave him a piece of money, and every one an earring of gold. 12 So the LORD blessed the latter end of Job more than his beginning: for he had fourteen thousand sheep, and six thousand camels, and a thousand yoke of oxen, and a thousand she asses. In fact, since that war that took place in heaven that culminated in Satan been driven down to the earth, war has never stopped on the face of the earth. Right now the war for the souls of men is still raging. The war between the forces f light and darkness is very much on. See what the Book of Revelation has to say about this. Rev. 12:7-12 7 And there was war in heaven: Michael and his angels fought against the dragon; and the dragon fought and his angels, 8 And prevailed not; neither was their place found any more in heaven. 9 And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, which deceiveth the whole world: he was cast out into the earth, a nd his angels were cast out with him. 10 And I heard a loud voice saying in heaven, Now is come salvation, and strength, and the kingdom of our God, and the power of his Christ: for the accuser of our brethren is cast down, which accused them before our God day and night. 11 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. Looking into the life of King David we saw a man who was always involved in warfare with the surrounding neighboring nations. Biblical . account has it that he fought about 32 wars without defeat and his Son Solomon didn't fight any because the father fought for him. Here is a little bit of the summary of the various wars he fought and won. 1Chro. 18:1-13 1Now after this it came to pass, that David smote the Philistines, and subdued them, and took Gath and her towns out of the hand of the Philistines. and he smote Moab; and the Moabites became David's servants, and brought gifts. 3 And David smote Hadarezer king of Zobah unto Hamath, as he went to stablish his dominion by the river Euphrates. 4 And David took from him a thousand chariots, and seven thousand horsemen, and twenty thousand footmen: David also houghed all the chariot horses, but reserved of them an hundred chariots. 5 And when the Syrians of Damascus came to help Hadarezer king of Zobah, David slew of the Syrians two and twenty thousand men. 6 Then David put garrisons in Syriadamascus; and the Syrians became David's servants, and brought gifts. Thus the Lord preserved David whithersoever he went. 7 And David took the shields of gold that were on the servants of Hadarezer, and brought them to Jerusalem. 8 Likewise from Tibhath, and from Chun, cities of Hadarezer, brought David very much brass, wherewith Solomon made the brasen sea, and the pillars, and the vessels of brass. 9 Now when Tou king of Hamath heard how David had smitten all the host of Hadarezer king of Zobah; 10 He sent Hadoram his son to king David, to enquire of his welfare, and to congratulate him, because he had fought against Hadarezer, and smitten him; (for Hadarezer had war with Tou;) and with him all manner of vessels of gold and silver and brass. 11 Them also king David dedicated unto the Lord, with the silver and the gold that he brought from all these nations; from Edom, and from Moab, and from the children of Ammon, and from the Philistines, and from Amalek. 12 Moreover Abishai the son of Zeruiah slew of the Edomites in the valley of salt eighteen thousand. 13 And he put garrisons in Edom; and all the Edomites became David's servants. Thus the Lord preserved David whithersoever he went. THE LORD JESUS The Lord Jesus also fought on our behalf and He has given us the victory. It stands to reason in the same vein that because Jesus has fought on our behalf we can also have victory in life. 1Cor. 15:57 But thanks be to God, which giveth us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ. As we look into the Book of Psalm we shall see that God has decided to end the wars or battles of our lives Ps. 46:9 He maketh wars to cease unto the end of the earth; he breaketh the bow, and cutteth the spear in sunder; he burneth the chariot in the fire. - On Ancient of Days, bring every battles of my life to an end now in Jesus miracle working name. - O Rock of Ages, arise and fight my battles - Oh God Mercy, let your mercy turn my portion around for good - Every strong battle that say, my life will be stagnant like pond water, break and die now - You strong battle that has taken laughter away from my life, enough is enough, die - Battle and its owner that has vowed to die with me, I am not ready to die now, die by fire - Oh Lord, end suddenly every battle of my life and family - Oh God, put to open shame, all enemies of my career
