December 2018 – Godliness Engenders Greatness
New Dawn greetings in the name of Jesus Christ.
All through scriptures, godliness has proved to be the foundation for all-round breakthroughs. This is because godliness entitles us to the following among others:
- Answered Prayers – Ps 66:18-19
- Health and Vitality – 2Jn. 2/ Jn. 5:1-8/14
- Access to Revelation – Ps/ 25:14/ Mk. 4:11/ Is. 60:1-3
- Supernatural Breakthroughs – Job 1:1-3/ 8-9/ Mk. 3:1-8
- Eternity with Christ – 1Cor 6:9-11/ Gal 5:19-21/ Eph 5:5-8
All that life would ever demand both in the now and hereafter can be fully realized through a lifestyle of godliness.
Therefore, we must stay spiritually awake at all times because if we surrender to the spirit of slumber, we shall become vulnerable to the deceitfulness of sin Mat. 13:23-28/ Eph. 5:14/ Heb. 3:13
We should also be reminded that righteousness is not just who we are in Christ but also what we do to prove who we are. This is why we are told to work out our salvation with fear and trembling – Mat. 7:16-21/ Ph. 2:12
And this is the reason why war against uncleanliness is the fiercest battle believers face –Zech. 3:1-4/ Heb. 12:3-4.
On the other hand, we recognize that spirituality is at the root of our dignity, nobility and royalty in Christ and that at the root of a fruitful, enviable and impactful life in the Kingdom is godliness. –Rm. 8:6/ 2Tim. 2:19-21.
Therefore, the prophetic focus for the month of December 2018 is:
GODLINESS ENGENDERS GREATNESS – Isa. 35:7-10
If God said “Be ye holy for I am Holy…” then we can be holy – Lev. 11: 44-45/ 1Pet. 1:16
If Christ said: “Be ye perfect as your heavenly father is perfect…”, then we can be perfect – Mat. 5:48
God cannot tell us to be what He has not empowered us to be because His commandments are not grievous- 1Jn. 5:3
I believe this is one major way to see God crown this year with His goodness and all His path dropping fatness upon us, our families, our businesses, our careers and all that pertains to us.
Therefore, Awake thou that sleepest and arise from the dead and Christ shall give thee light – Eph. 5:14
Recommended books of the month authored by me include:
- Walking in the Newness of Life
- Conquering Controlling Powers
- The Blood Triumph
Remain ever blessed.
Jesus is Lord!
