Eagle

Soaring to greater heights: Introduction. (Part 2)

By Pastor Andrew Bawa

"But those who wait on the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings like eagles, they shall run and not be weary, they shall walk and not faint." Isaiah 40: 31 (NKJV)

Bible Readings: Deuteronomy 32: 8-14, Hebrews 12: 1-2, Ephesians 2: 6, Hebrews 1: 21, Numbers 23: 8, Genesis 49.

Life gives us choices. We choose what we want. Anytime you have a strange god, you cut down your life. Strange gods cut your destiny short. Before you look up to Jesus you have to remove the strange things. Those strange gods are weights that needs to be cut off. When you have strange gods it means you love it more than God. Everything about you should be more about God not the issue. What is a god in your life? What gods do you carry? Could your god be anger? The strange god's might be something near you, your character, something you give attention to. 

Avoid distractions. Strange god's distract you when you don't deal with it. It is dangerous to be distracted when you are on the sky. You can't attract what you don't celebrate. To go up, you have to lay aside these strange things. God has a way to recompense you to catch up on your blessings. Never feel like time is passing you by; the owner of time is your creator. 

When there was no strange gods, God would lead you to the top of the mountain and the sky. You must pass through the cloud. The crowd level distracts, its the cloud level that takes us to our destiny. If you look up you go up and of you look down you go down. Not everyone in the crowd loves you. Stop allowing people to limit you. The reason you are limited in your flight is because you are looking around you. You have to look up. When you look up, you are focused. 

You go through a turbulence because in the flight of life even though you are cruising, there are winds that come against you. What will destroy you has no been created. As long as God is your creator, that flight cannot come down.

All you need to do is be still and know that he is God. What you are worried about has a capacity to destroy you.

Soaring to greater heights: Introduction (Change of levels).

By Pastor Andrew Bawa

"But those who wait on the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings like eagles, they shall run and not be weary, they shall walk and not faint." Isaiah 40: 31 (NKJV)

Bible Readings: Deuteronomy 32: 8-14.

The bible equates our life with that of an eagle. What causes you to go higher? When and if God can find you, you are destined to go higher. A lot of people want to be lifted by God but are hiding from him. God is looking for you, where are you? In the plan for eternity and destiny, where are you? We are not there for God but we want him to be there for us. Wherever you are right now, is by the leading of his word. Not only did God lead you, he lifted you.

God's desire is to lift you up. But as you are being lifted there are forces pushing you, wanting you to go down and be grounded. What is trying to push you down? Christ never leads you without going through it himself. Forces try to push you down because they want you to be on the same level as them. 

Stop looking for a crowd to go with you. Stop looking for people's approval. You need to be with God, not the rest. The reason they force you down is because they do not want you to eat. You can't eat the best from the ground, you eat from the top. When you eat from the ground, you are limited. People that eat from the top have dominion while those that eat from the ground are grounded. When God picked you, He saw your situation, your cry.

Any time you are changing levels there are forces working to stop you. You may not see what you are going through but you can feel the weight. All the things you are facing happens at the take off stage. As long as you hope in the lord, there will be a renewal of strength. Whenever you hope in God, you have just renewed His commitment to you. The reason why God is leading you up is because from up, you will eat the best of the land. God has a purpose and plan. When things are pushing you down, just remember that it is because of where you are going to.

How to rise up, is to make sure there is no bitterness in you. When you are bitter, you cannot be better. Don't pay attention to those that criticize you. No matter the turbulence, it doesn't kill.

God never promised a smooth flight, but he promised a smooth landing.

I am favoured for expansion

By Pastor Mattew Kazeem

"But Simon answered and said to Him, “Master, we have toiled all night and caught nothing; nevertheless at Your word I will let down the net.” And when they had done this, they caught a great number of fish, and their net was breaking" Luke 5: 5-6 (NKJV)

Bible Readings: Luke 5: 1-11, Romans 9: 15, Hebrews 11: 1-5, Hebrews 11: 40, Hebrews 12: 1-2, 1 Corinthians 6: 11.

What doesn't make sense to you is what God wants to use. Your blessings is already packaged before you were born. God knows that you will pass through trials so he created an escape route for you.

The expansion of God concerning your life is not meant for you alone. God wants you to extent it to others. Your lifting from the position you are in is for God to also lift those around you. Irrespective of where you are coming from, if God favours you, he will lift you up. No one has the right to put you down.

If God wants to bless you, multiply you, he must see a "net" in your hands. When God wants to bless you, he must see what you have gone through and that is the avenue he would use to bless you. God can't make you soar when you don't have a wing. For God to increase you, you need something. If God did not allow you to go through it, he can't bless you through it! Your faith should be in Christ Jesus. Work in the faith of Christ that lives in you.

If God gives you an instruction, don't explain him. If you can explain God, he ceases to be God. If God gives you an instruction, stay in position. Position yourself in the place of prayer. 

Prayers

⁃ God distinct me from others. Give me a blessing that will distinct me from others.

⁃ Whatever be the net in my hand, I pray that I catch enough.

⁃ Anything that will stop you from harvesting your blessing, Holy Ghost fire, consume them.

Month of soaring to greater heights

By Pastor Andrew Bawa

"But those who wait on the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings like eagles, they shall run and not be weary, they shall walk and not faint." Isaiah 40: 31 (NKJV)

Bible Readings: Exodus 19: 4, Amos 3: 7,  Isaiah 40: 1-2.

Whatever you find yourself going through is not meant to kill you. You have to sense that something is coming and go into the place of prayer and you rise above it. Once your wings carry weight, it cannot take you higher in the situation of life. God designed and called us using the eagle.

If you want to succeed, you must be willing to rise above offences. The reason why your life is not going the right way is because you are offended at so many things. When you see disappointment, offences, bitterness coming, don't let it get to you, just lock it up! If you are able to lock yourself, what was supposed to kill you, will raise you up. Are you willing to lock it up? Your adversary can be turned to an advantage. The reason why you have been trapped where you are is because of the people you are associating with.

Discouragement is a spirit so be careful allowing people talk discouraging words to you. Not every eagle in the valley survive. You need encouragers, destiny helpers around you. You are meant to always look up. The moment you look down, you miss out. What are you looking at? Many of the people that take you down are the familiar people around you. Eagles don't move in a crowd, they move alone. You are at a place where you need to shed some of your friends. You are soaring to greater heights! You can soar to greater heights when you know the people that taunt you. It's good for people to talk against you so that God can lift you up. Don't allow anything get to your soul. Challenges are not meant to take you down but to take you up. It depends on your mindset.

Whenever you lock it up, you are destined for flight.
