One on one with the Holy Spirit..be expectant for creative prophetic expression.

“Seek God for your desired expressions of His Spirit within you. Most have never thought of doing so. What are your gifts and talents? How can the Holy Spirit assist you?

When you have a quiet time and have done your bible study, prayed and sang to the LORD, acknowledging the presence of the Holy Spirit, pause for a moment for the Holy Spirit may want to speak through you, praise or sing to God about His goodness or who He is through you…

As a born again believer you have the Holy Spirit indwelling you and the more you fellowship with Him as one in Christ the more He will flow as “living waters” out of your “belly” (John 7:38).

At times the utterance will be straight forward prophecies as words to be written, songs or psalms to be sang and can be set to music. Whether written or sang they may also have poetic expression.

Always have your journal ready to write and even a sound recorder to record. Be expectant and prepared to receive from the “living waters” or Holy Spirit flowing out of you as a believer in Jesus Christ, the “last Adam a Life giving Spirit” (1 Corinth. 15:45)…

Message to Father: A New Day

At this mountain top, never do I cease to see your face glistening as the sun.

In past times, I must admit I did the sprint so that far from you I run.

In present times, my once static frown has morphed into a smile of one having so much fun.

Pray, keep me anointed as I upscale greater heights to fulfil my mandate through the Son of Man. ©️July2018 DENyamekye

Part 1: Honouring the Holy Spirit – You Shall receive utterance & empowerment to be a blessing

image

Holy Spirit we honour You!

As born again Christians we all have the Holy Spirit indwelling us, a life abiding in God is an exciting life in which the Holy Spirit manifests as God’s power and testifies of our creative God through our lives in all His functions. He is the Spirit of God and therefore God Himself for God is Spirit and they that worship Him must worship Him in Spirit and in truth (John 4:24).

As you can see the importance of the Holy Spirit in you, a born again believer cannot be under-estimated.

Seek God for your desired expressions of His Spirit within you. Most have never thought of doing so. What are your gifts and talents? How can the Holy Spirit assist you?

When you have a quiet time and have done your bible study, prayed and sang to the LORD, acknowledging the presence of the Holy Spirit, pause for a moment for the Holy Spirit may want to speak through you, praise or sing to God about His goodness or who He is through you.

For your encouragement as one called and chosen by God to carry His vision and purpose to be birthed for the glory of God, it is worth remembering the following biblical personalities who were also God’s instruments. As in their case, you also have the ability to prophecy, or be His vessel for uttering His words or will to bless others:

1.Elizabeth – when she heard Mary’s voice the baby (John the Baptist; a child conceived for the purposes of God) leapt in her womb and Elizabeth was full of the Holy Spirit (Luke 1:41), as a result
42she spake out with a loud voice, and said, Blessed [art] thou among women, and blessed [is] the fruit of thy womb.43And whence [is] this to me, that the mother of my Lord should come to me?…45And blessed [is] she that believed: for there shall be a performance of those things which were told her from the Lord. (Luke 1:4243,45)

2.Mary, pregnant with Jesus having visited Elizabeth and heard her speak under the unction of the Holy Spirit, was also given utterance by the Spirit to sing a prophetic song
unto God, glorifying Him for choosing her and His mighty works on earth (Luke 1: 46-55).

3.Zacharias, a High Priest and John the Baptist’s father, after his son’s birth was full of the Holy Ghost and prophesied
the destiny of Jesus Christ and that of John the Baptist (Luke 1:67-79).

As is confirmed by these biblical characters, when God chooses you as His, you become His instrument to conceive His plans and purposes as an anointed vessel of God, your lifestyle and words should therefore testify of who you are to God. You do not need to be a prophet to be a vessel of prophetic utterance by the LORD.

As a born again believer you have the Holy Spirit indwelling you and the more you fellowship with Him as one in Christ the more He will flow as “living waters” out of your “belly” (John 7:38).

At times the utterance will be straight forward prophecies as words to be written, songs or psalms to be sang and can be set to music. Whether written or sang they may also have poetic expression.

Always have your journal ready to write and even sound recorder to record. Be expectant and prepared to receive from the “living waters” or Holy Spirit flowing out of you as a believer in Jesus Christ, the “last Adam a Life giving Spirit” (1 Corinth. 15:45).

In addition we often think more of the Holy Spirit as a doer, One with many functions, which is true, but He is fundamentally the power of God. POWER! DUNAMIS! The Holy Spirit’s act of being powerful is rooted in His function as a helper. He brings forth tremendous and evident transformation of lives. How do you want to be transformed personally? How do you want your situation to be changed? All for God’s glory! It is only possible by abiding in the powerful Holy Spirit.

In this way you allow God to express Himself powerfully through you by

1. Using you for the sake of others – Holy Spirit will empower you and activate your giftings and callings. This is the life of God within you at work (Roman 8:11).

2. Teaching you His ways, so that you can teach others under the anointing of the Holy Spirit.
-You shall be a true teacher by the enabling of the Spirit of truth (another name for Holy Spirit), the anointing of God which teaches you. (1 John 2:27/John 8:32/John 16:13).
Therefore as Timothy you shall be taught to teach (2 Tim. 2:2).

You shall be someone multitudes can trust amidst false teachers in these last days before the coming of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ.

3. Imparting spiritual gifts (Romans 12:6-8, 1 Peter 4:10-11, 1 Corinth. 12:1-31, Eph. 4:11-16) and the fruit of the Spirit (Gal…) so that you live a Christlike life and able to do all things because we have God’s strength or power (Phil 4:13)

May we live a supernaturally natural life unto God through our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ remembering that this is only possible when we are in daily fellowship with His powerful Holy Spirit.

Prayer:

Most High God, worthy of all honour and praise, I praise you for your goodness and miraculous works in all the earth and in my personal life.

I ask that as I live in fellowship with your Holy Spirit, you would activate praise in my heart whatever I am doing and wherever I am.

LORD, I also ask that I would burst forth into song at any given moment and opportunity. May your living waters flow through me so that I am given prophetic utterance  to bless individuals, families, churches and nations.

Dear Father,  I also pray for the expression of these utterances by your Spirit as new songs and psalms as well as direct prophecies that glorify you by bringing hope, encouragement and healing to multitudes.

This is my desire LORD as I live a worshipful life unto you. In Jesus’ name I pray. Amen.

You are blessed, determine to stay blessed!

All For His Glory

“Whatever I have, it is my desire that it is from the Most High’s hands.

Whatever I do, I pray will be His doing and approved by Him. For I live to give Him all the glory”. DENyamekye

Peter and John had this same desire and prayer as I do when they lived to fulfil their purpose in Christ.

They were without doubt that God was with them. Among other disciples of Jesus, they had received and been baptised in the Holy Spirit (John 20:22, Acts 2:4) and believed Jesus when he said they would do greater works than He did if they believe in Him (John 14:12). Everything they did was for the glory of God in Christ.

Peter and John knew that without Christ they were nothing (John 15:5) and their mission was not to build treasures for themselves on earth (Matt.6:19-20). Instead their heart was knitted with their purpose which was to preach the gospel and perform miracles of healing and deliverance.

This is evidenced in Peter’s response to the cripple at the temple gate called Beautiful. When he asked Peter and John for money Peter replied in humility

“I don’t have any silver or gold for you. But I’ll give you what I have. In the name of Jesus Christ the Nazarene, get up and walk!” (Acts 3:6 NLT).

They were bold because they exercised their Christ delegated authority and power knowing that whatever they ask in Jesus’ name will be granted to them as He had promised (John 15:7). As they did the works of Christ in his name, Christ gave glory to the Father through them (John 14:13).

After the cripple was healed, Peter knew that he had to give honour and glory to God for performing this miracle of healing when he saw all the people running towards him and John. He had a reverential fear of God and did not for one moment want the crowd to think he and John had any power of their own to heal anyone.

The bible states that Peter “saw his opportunity and addressed the crowd”:

“People of Israel,” he said, “what is so surprising about this? And why stare at us as though we had made this man walk by our own power or godliness? 13For it is the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob—the God of all our ancestors—who has brought glory to his servant Jesus by doing this. This is the same Jesus whom you handed over and rejected before Pilate, despite Pilate’s decision to release him.

14You rejected this holy, righteous one and instead demanded the release of a murderer. 15You killed the author of life, but God raised him from the dead. And we are witnesses of this fact!

16“Through faith in the name of Jesus, this man was healed—and you know how crippled he was before. Faith in Jesus’ name has healed him before your very eyes. (Acts 3:12-16NLT).

May God help us all to be as Peter and John as we live to fulfil our God given purpose on earth; Giving him all the glory and praise for every accomplishment however small or large.

Have a blessed day in Christ.

A Miracle-filled Life is Yours!

Sometimes we may be going through difficulties and not know where to turn. Let us be reminded that we have a God who is “our refuge & strength, a very present help in trouble” (Psa.46:1). He also said in His Word that He will never leave us nor forsake us (Heb. 13:5).

He is the same God who miraculously prevented Daniel and his friends from burning in the furnace (Daniel 6) and who answered the prayer of the saints on behalf of Peter so that he was miraculously released from prison (Acts 12). He is also the same God who came to earth as Christ through a miraculous birth, so that the inheritance of His people Israel would be extended to anyone who accepts Jesus Christ as their Lord and Saviour. If Jesus Christ is not your Lord and Saviour it is not too late, there is a miraculous life awaiting you!

He is also the God who never forgets your faithfulness to Him; many have toiled and laboured and some times wonder when they will either be healed from a particular sickness or receive answers to certain prayers which would change their situation for the better.

In fact some of you have been waiting on God through prayer for the fulfilment of prophecies spoken over your lives. “When LORD! when” is your desperate cry! But God is saying there are things that have to take place first and as you stay close to Him, He will give you understanding. Patience and perseverance in the place of worship regardless of the circumstance is what God is calling us all to.

Be encouraged today! In Christ a miraculous life is guaranteed!

In Him:

In the holy place

we seek His face,

there He appears to

wipe away our tears.

In our hearts

we call His name,

there flows His fountain

that heals our pain.

In Him

no more tears,

no more pain.

Prayer Room

Prayer for guidance & direction

Dear Gracious Father

By wisdom you founded the earth and by understanding you established the heavens. Your word also says “blessed is the man that finds wisdom and gets understanding” and also that you are the giver of wisdom knowledge and understanding. They are more precious than silver, gold and rubies.

Our righteousness is as filthy rags and our schemes are worthless without your knowledge and how to apply them wisely. Your word also says that without you we can do nothing.

Who can know and understand your ways? Who can gain your wisdom except by your Holy Spirit who instructs us about your ways and reminds us of the teachings of Jesus Christ.

Father I pray that you would forgive us for making decisions without consulting you or seeking your counsel. I ask you to graciously deliver us from self motivated decisions and actions.

“Shew me thy ways, O LORD; teach me thy paths.Lead me in thy truth, and teach me: for thou [art] the God of my salvation; on thee do I wait all the day.”

I also pray that you would take control of every aspect of our lives and help us to direct our focus on that which concerns you. Help us to know and prioritise what you perceive as a priority and to do only what you instruct us to do, redeeming the time, for your coming is soon.

Father, help us in our weaknesses and come in all your might and power to make us a people ready for the coming of the Lord.

In Jesus’ mighty name I pray Amen.
