October Bulletin - Our Month of Celebration

Month of Celebration

  • 2nd October 2016

Dearly beloved, it gives me great joy to welcome you to the month of October – our month of Celebration. When I look back at the last nine month in retrospect, I cannot but appreciate God for how He delivered us from all the attacks of the enemy both as a ministry and as individuals.I am particularly excited by the fact that the God we serve is a God of plan, purpose, design and objectivity. He knows the end of a thing from the very beginning, and that is why He has boldly declared ahead of time that this is our month of celebration and there is nothing the devil can do about it.

Boved, understand that no matter the economic and socio-political challenges going on in the world right now, there is a Goshen for the believer. Let me share with you what Jesus Himself said in the 16th chapter of John verse 33.

‘’I have told you these things so that in me you may have {perfect} peace and confidence. In the world you have tribulation and trials and distress and frustration, but be of good cheer {take courage, be confident, certain, undaunted} for I have overcome the world. {I have deprived it of the power to harm you and have conquered it for you.}’’AMP

Beloved, did you see that? Jesus has already overcome the world and its systems on your behalf, so that you can stand on the existing victory and truly celebrate.
No matter what the enemy brings out of his closet this month, your victory is already guaranteed. God did not bring you into this month only to allow you to be swallowed by the enemy. You need to walk with this revelation and see Him make a way for you every day.

Yes, it may be hard for others in the world, but I declare that there shall be divine happenings for you because Jesus has already conquered the world. It is not about what you can do, but it is all about what He has done. I declare that from today to the last day of this month, you will see the goodness of God in your life. Let the tempest rage, let the billows toss high, beloved, don’t expect the worst to happen to you, instead expect the best and believe that every day will bring good things to you.

This month, one sure way to stay in the celebration mood is to leverage on the word of God irrespective of prevailing circumstances. Take a quality decision to always remain connected to the errorless, impregnable word of God, which is the only thing that is constant. Every other thing would fail, but not the word. Fix your mind at all times on the word and bury your head in it. The scriptures in Habakkuk 3:17-18 says

‘’Although the fig tree shall not blossom, neither shall fruit be in the vines; the labour of the olive shall fail, and the fields shall yield no meat; the flock shall be cut off from the fold, and there shall be no herd in the stalls: yet I will rejoice in the Lord, I will joy in the God of my salvation.’’

In other words no matter what comes, I will still rejoice and celebrate because I know everything will turn for my good.

Secondly, you must know your rights in Christ so that you function as one who is in charge. Don’t remain a babe in Christ. Take a quality decision to grow in the things of the Spirit. Galatians 4: 1 – 2 says

‘’Now I say, that the heir, as long as he is a child differeth nothing from a servant, though he be lord of all; but is under tutors and governors until the time appointed of the father…’’

Beloved it is not enough to come to church, sing, dance and hi-five every person. As good as all that is, you must develop spiritual muscles, because if you don’t, the devil can still pluck out your eyes. That will not be your portion in Jesus name.

Another important decision you must take this month is to always sit at the feet of the Master and stay connected. As we climax the age, evil will increase and you cannot afford to toy with your Christian experience. Don’t choose the services to attend. When you skip services you will not be fully equipped to function like you are supposed to. In addition, make up your mind to stay committed and be a part of all church activities and as you do, the Lord will increase you on all sides.

This month, God will spring surprises in your life. This month, you will eat the good of the land and your barns shall burst forth with plenty. I bless you.

In His Royal Service
