Back to the Basics 5

Supernatural Settlements

"But the God of all grace, who hath called us unto his eternal glory by Christ Jesus, after that ye have suffered a while, make you perfect, stablish, strengthen, settle you." - 1 Peter 5:10

Bible Reading: Psalms 2:1-4, 2 Corinthians 8:3, James 1:17, Hebrews 10:38, Romans 1:17, Galatians 3:11

Your settlement depends on your connection to your source. Mary was connected to the tribe of Judah, a lineage of David. 

Whose house are you from? Are you of the house of God? 
Are you connected with a thriving moving ark of destiny? Are you established by God? 
Are you eating a balanced heavenly diet from the word of God? Expect a settlement. 

What you eat determines what you become in life, you are a product of what you eat and where you are eating from is vital to your settlement

Are you genuinely connected to your spiritual father? Are you a consistent tither? Are you a dangerous sower? Are you consistently advancing the kingdom through evangelism outreach and by giving to increase the church? Are you prayerful? Are you always full of praises? Are you living a life of thanksgiving? Expect a settlement

Hindrances to Your Settlements
•    Wrong/Negative Mindset
•    Lack of expectations
•    Fear of what people will say
•    Fear of the destination
•    Lack of faith
•    Lack of joy
•    Negative speech
•    Incessant complaints
•    Fear of being rejected
•    Fear of tomorrow
•    Being too comfortable with the status quo

Praise That Settles Your Case


By Pastor Andrew Bawa

"Now Jericho was straitly shut up because of the children of Israel: none went out, and none came in. And the Lord said unto Joshua, See, I have given into thine hand Jericho, and the king thereof, and the mighty men of valour. And ye shall compass the city, all ye men of war, and go round about the city once. Thus shalt thou do six days. And seven priests shall bear before the ark seven trumpets of rams' horns: and the seventh day ye shall compass the city seven times, and the priests shall blow with the trumpets. And it shall come to pass, that when they make a long blast with the ram's horn, and when ye hear the sound of the trumpet, all the people shall shout with a great shout; and the wall of the city shall fall down flat, and the people shall ascend up every man straight before him." - Joshua 6:1-5 (KJV)

Bible Reading: Psalm 149, Ephesians 1:21, 2:6

The devil knows God's promise for you and is determined to make it impossible. Life is a welfare! There are things that are God's will and there are things we need welfare for. There are spiritual forces that see your potentials and are determined to be an obstacle to your progress. We have to be determined to stop them.

There is a place for prayer and there is a place for praise. Sometimes you need a combination of praise types described in Psalm 149 for your case to be settled. These praise types include Halal (Hallelujah), Tephillah (Praise prayer) and Zamar (Praising God with instruments).

Let your speech and praise amplify your faith. Praise God before anything else! Sing for joy and rejoice in the Lord and He will grant you success. Why do you need to sing aloud? When you shout, your praise will shake and scatter the foundations of your issues.
