Turn Around

By Pastor Andrew Bawa

"You have skirted this mountain long enough; turn northward." Deuteronomy 2: 3 (NKJV)

Bible Readings: Deuteronomy 1: 17, Psalms 126: 1-4, Genesis 22, 2 Timothy 4, Matthew 13: 4-5, Isaiah 45: 13, Ezra 1: 2-3, Exodus 23: 25-27, Psalms 100: 2, Psalms 22: 30, Isaiah 45: 1-3.

Many at times, people feel like when God does a 360 degree turn for you, it means you are coming back to where you started from but God is saying no. There have been certain destinies that have been locked and for God to open it, he has to turn things around.

When God decides to turn things around he wants you to soar, to achieve greatness. There has to be certain covenant you have to do for things to turn around in your life. Until you do certain things yourself, nothing will turn around. 

⁃ Prompt obedience: you must be willing to obey. On whose terms do you serve God? Half obedience is not obedience. Don’t ever think you can outsmart God; he is your creator. Enjoy good things but not at the expense of God’s things. obey God’s words, his voice, his precepts, his principles. “To obey is better than sacrifice”. Disobedience is equivalent to witchcraft. Anything God asks you to do will align with his word. Nothing God will say will contradict his word.

⁃ Kingdom service: be focused on kingdom service. Engage in it. Don’t just show up in church and sit down; show up and be a vessel. Once you begin to serve the lord, God will begin to fight for you. Serve God truthfully and not men. Serve with gladness. Serve him with soul winning.

Get ready for your turn around

By Pastor Andrew Bawa

"He sent a man before them— Joseph—who was sold as a slave. They hurt his feet with fetters, He was laid in irons. Until the time that his word came to pass, the word of the Lord tested him. The king sent and released him, the ruler of the people let him go free. He made him lord of his house, and ruler of all his possessions, to bind his princes at his pleasure, and teach his elders wisdom." Psalms 105: 17-22 (NKJV)

Bible Readings: Psalm 126:1.

What do you need for things to turn around in your life?

You need a word from God. If the Word of the Lord shows up, shackles will break. The word for your turnaround is in the word.  He sends forth his word. If you believe the word, search the word and get the word. The word would work for you. Sometimes the closer you want to get to your dream that God has shown you, the farther you get. But wherever you are right now, God has kept you there.

Never allow anyone tell you what you should be. Never allow anyone look down on you and tell you what you should be. You are an eagle, don't let people push you down or define you. Don't settle for what you are not suppose to be.

You are meant to be a Joseph to make a way for other people to come in. As you make room for someone, God will make a way for you. There are emotional, marital, financial prisons that you put yourself and ones that the devil put you but you can come out of them.

When your word comes, you will break out and things will turn around for you.
