When you reach the end of yourself and your own meagre and inadequate resources, know that in and by faith you can draw nigh to Him and begin to experience what He has available. Learning to live in and off Him really is the secret of dynamic life and service. You will never be able, in spite of your seeming personality and potential, to perform in a prevailing manner and measure. Only as you seek the LORD and begin to experience the spiritual flow that comes from Him will you rise to fulfil any great expectations. But that is why He has come to you, to release His potential in and through you and cause things to occur of a heavenly order. It can occur right now, in and through you.


“Humble yourselves therefore under the mighty hand of God, that He may exalt you in due time”- 1 Peter 5:6

The best promotion and exaltation is always through God in His time and place, when His grace has performed the best in you, then you can handle yourself and new status.               


In and through Christ, God the Father has blessed you with the Holy Spirit who has come inside of you to add to your life. He comes to produce both fruit and gift and both are purpose to make you Christ-like. In 1 Corinthians 12 Paul reveals that there are at least none gifts to be known within the Christian community in its life and witness. The appeal within the chapter is to ‘desire spiritual gifts’ – v31 “But covet earnestly the best gifts”. The gifts are planned to make the Christian powerful and influential in ministry and service.

“to another the working of miracles” – v10. To many, miracles are not the norm. Christ found no problem in performing the unique and extraordinary in the course of His life and ministry. His desire and design was that His Christian disciples should follow suit and the Church would experience such. Peter had no difficulty in raising Dorcas from the dead, and Paul, Eutychus and many were impacted with the Gospel of Christ. The Holy Spirit is still able to impart such a gift and electrify a community with outstanding wonders. Being filled with the Holy Spirit gives Him the opportunity for



One of the charges levelled at this ancient people was that of senselessness. Although God was speaking and doings things to try and make then understand and see sense, they appeared to be void of the knowledge that mattered. A contrast is adopted from creation to underline this factor. It is affirmed: “Yea, the stork in heaven knoweth her appointed times; and the turtle and the crane and swallow observe the time of their coming; but my people know not the judgment of the Lord” – v7. The birds hear the distinct call within for migration and do not hesitate to respond.

God’s people were hearing the distinct summons of the Lord to make a decisive return to the Him in repentance but they were paying no attention and thus showing an awful irrationality. Through the voice of the prophets and the Spirit they were being called by God to respond to His grace into something better but there was no aptitude to listen, take note and be on their wing to God. They were under the foul illusion of evil and paid no notice to the effort that was being put forth by God to bring them into harmony and blessing with Him.

It is a terrible thing to think that one’ knows and understands and yet really be in a state of ignorance. How vital it is to be aware of the opportune seasons in life when God certainly speaks and seeks to produce an important change that will mark the beginning of His greater movements! Are you sensitive to His voice appealing for some inward response to His will that will ensure your future in relation to His plan for your life? Do not allow the anything or anyone to interfere with the great things He wants to achieve in and through you at this hour.
