THEME: Beware Of The Crowd (II)
SCRIPTURE: – Matthew 6:33 “But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.”
As we continue to look into reasons for staying clear of the crowd. In the crowd, you sometimes get to lose valuable items to pick pockets and street boys. These are the physical representatives of the roaring lion that goes about seeking who to devour. The unusual and tight closeness in the crowd makes it easy for stealing and other nefarious activities to prosper. My candid advice this morning is that you take a step to recover at all cost what the crowd might have stolen from you, in the name of Jesus.
Like the woman with the issue of blood, refuse to allow the crowd hinder you from getting your healing and your miracle! She pushed through the crowd. It was a relentless effort. She made up her mind to touch Jesus by all means, if she didn’t succeed in seeing him. Strong faith indeed! She ended up touching the edge of His garment. Alleluia! She was made whole!
What would have been her lot if she had remained resigned in her mind, filled with self pity, and decided to accept her situation, continue in her suffering? She would have ended her life in misery. She didn’t allow the crowd to hinder her. You can say No, to the crowd too. Do not allow people and situation to hinder your progress and success. God expects you to arise and do the uncommon to make the impossible possible by the power of God.
Zaccheus was another man who has to do the unexpected to get his desire. In spite of his small stature, he climbed the sycamore tree to see Jesus. Not only did he see, he got saved and received a divine visitation, hosting the Saviour Himself. What if he had kept quiet and remained unperturbed. Or perhaps full of excuses, grumbling and complaining?
Jesus had to put aside the crowd to get to Lazarus tomb and called him forth. He did the same at the house of Jairus, where He brought back to life his sick but dead daughter (Mark 5:35-41). Remember, that Jesus knew what is on the heart of men, else, He brushed aside the wailers and mourners miserable comforters, so that their doubts, unbelief and fear would not hinder the people from witnessing the manifestation of God’s power.
It is time for you to wade through the crowd and get your long expected miracle, in Jesus’ name.
- Any good thing that the crowd has stolen from me, I recover them by fire, in the name of Jesus.
- Evil crowd hindering me from reaching my place of blessing in good time, vanish, in the name of Jesus.
- Father Lord, help me to remain focus, in the name of Jesus.
- Power of divine priority baptise my life, in the name of Jesus.
- I shall not be a victim of evil counsel, in the name of Jesus.
- Negative comparison and evil compromise, depart from my life, in the name of Jesus.
- O God my Father, set my feet on the right path and guide me with Your Spirit, in the name of Jesus.
