Be Patient. RCCG Open Heavens. Prayer Points. Action Points And Sermon By Pastor E A Adeboye. Daddy G O

Memorise:
That ye be not slothful, but followers of them who through faith and patience inherit the promises.
Hebrews 6:12

Read:
Matthew 4:1-4

1 Then was Jesus led up of the Spirit into the wilderness to be tempted of the devil.
2 And when he had fasted forty days and forty nights, he was afterward an hungred.
3 And when the tempter came to him, he said, If thou be the Son of God, command that these stones be made bread.
4 But he answered and said, It is written, Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceeded out of the mouth of God.

Message

One common point of weakness in the life of many believers today is impatience. It is unfortunate that this weak point is being exploited by the devil to prey on believers. The tempter sometimes capitalises on the fact that a believer is hungry, to tempt him or her to “turn stone into bread”. At such moments, the believer should react like his Master did in Matthew 4:4c by saying this in response:

“Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of God.”

But what do we see today? Some couples go all out in search of the fruit of the womb when there is an apparent delay. This they do in spite of numerous scriptural passages that enjoin us to patiently run the race that is set before us (Hebrews 12:1). The Bible in Genesis 41:1 says:

“And it came to pass at the end of two full years, that Pharaoh dreamed: and, behold, he stood by the river.”

This scriptural passage speaks volumes and our understanding of its deep meaning will go a long way to cure us of the spiritual disease of impatience. Whatever and however terrible the situation a child of God is passing through, the promise of God is that it shall not last forever; rather it shall come to pass! Two full years passed from the commencement of Joseph’s expectation of release from prison to the time Pharaoh had the dream that would eventually set him free.

Why is the Christian life characterised by challenges? It is because the world hates the godly lifestyle of a believer. It takes determination for believers to stand in the face of adversities which the world puts as a stumbling block to cause their fall. This is why Jesus Christ prayed for believers in John 17:15-16 saying:

“I pray not that thou shouldest take them out of the world, but that thou shouldest keep them from the evil. They are not of the world, even as I am not of the world.”

Beloved, let us keep on looking unto Jesus, the Author and Finisher of our faith, who was once tempted like us, but remained determined to endure everything for our sake. And because he was victorious, we shall be victorious; for the scripture in Romans 8:37 says this concerning us:

“Nay, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him that loved us.”

Prayer Point:
Holy Spirit Divine, please see me through the challenges of life with Your comfort and guidance.

May God Bless Nigeria, America And Israel And Take Care Of Us; May God Make His Face Shine Upon Us, And Be Gracious To Us; May The Lord Lift Up His Countenance Upon Us, And Give Us Peace, In Jesus Christ Name, We Pray! Amen!

May The Grace The Lord Jesus Christ, And The Love Of God, And The Fellowship Of The Holy Spirit Be With You All. Amen!

  2. O God, the nations have invaded your inheritance;
    they have defiled your holy temple,
    they have reduced Jerusalem to rubble.
    2 They have left the dead bodies of your servants
    as food for the birds of the sky,
    the flesh of your own people for the animals of the wild.
    3 They have poured out blood like water
    all around Jerusalem,
    and there is no one to bury the dead.
    4 We are objects of contempt to our neighbors,
    of scorn and derision to those around us.

    5 How long, Lord? Will you be angry forever?
    How long will your jealousy burn like fire?
    6 Pour out your wrath on the nations
    that do not acknowledge you,
    on the kingdoms
    that do not call on your name;
    7 for they have devoured Jacob
    and devastated his homeland.

    8 Do not hold against us the sins of past generations;
    may your mercy come quickly to meet us,
    for we are in desperate need.
    9 Help us, God our Savior,
    for the glory of your name;
    deliver us and forgive our sins
    for your name’s sake.
    10 Why should the nations say,
    “Where is their God?”

    Before our eyes, make known among the nations
    that you avenge the outpoured blood of your servants.
    11 May the groans of the prisoners come before you;
    with your strong arm preserve those condemned to die.
    12 Pay back into the laps of our neighbors seven times
    the contempt they have hurled at you, Lord.
    13 Then we your people, the sheep of your pasture,
    will praise you forever;
    from generation to generation
    we will proclaim your praise.

  3. And he doeth great wonders, so that he maketh fire come down from heaven on the earth in the sight of men,

    14 And deceiveth them that dwell on the earth by the means of those miracles which he had power to do in the sight of the beast; saying to them that dwell on the earth, that they should make an image to the beast, which had the wound by a sword, and did live.

    15 And he had power to give life unto the image of the beast, that the image of the beast should both speak, and cause that as many as would not worship the image of the beast should be killed.
