DaFruits of Decision Making with God.❤

IMG_1989

Even though your enemies will try to pursue you, they will never find you because The Lord God Almighty is with you.

“So he said, “Go and see where he is, that I may send and get him.” And it was told him, saying, “Surely he is in Dothan.”
II Kings 6:13
“Therefore he sent horses and chariots and a great army there, and they came by night and surrounded the city.”
II Kings 6:14
“And when the servant of the man of God arose early and went out, there was an army, “And when the servant of the man of God arose early and went out, there was an army,
II Kings 6:15
“So he answered, “Do not fear, for those who are with us are more than those who are with them.””
II Kings 6:16
“And Elisha prayed, and said, “ LORD, I pray, open his eyes that he may see.” Then the LORD opened the eyes of the young man, and he saw. And behold, the mountain was full of horses and chariots of fire all around Elisha.”
II Kings 6:17
If only we knew the power working within us, if only we knew how great our God is then there would be no excuse for us to fear.
We’re an army rising up!
To break every chain.
If only you knew the angels that God Himself has sent to protect you.
Brethren, we must pray for God to open our spiritual eyes.
Remember we are dead to the flesh, but we are alive in Christ.
Therefore, we must pray to see what God sees, and we must pray to hear what God hears.
The young man was afraid, because he could not see but Elisha he had an encounter with God he knew God and that is why he was not afraid.
We must pray for encounters, before we receive His power we must first have an encounter with The Lord.
I can not expect to see more of God if I have not first yielded myself to the perfect will of God.
Think about what it is that you are seeing physically that just seems to be bothering you so much.
Brethren, pray to God to open the eyes of your heart so that you can receive His power and love.
We must have a desire to see the fullness of God.
Elisha prayed, and God answered what makes you think that God won’t do the same for you?
God answers the prayer of the righteous.
“God says, “I will save those who love me and will protect those who acknowledge me as Lord.”
Psalms 91:14
“When they call to me, I will answer them; when they are in trouble, I will be with them. I will rescue them and honour them.”
Psalms 91:15
“I will reward them with long life; I will save them.””
Psalms 91:16
And do you know what I love most about 2 Kings 6:17 is when it says ‘Then the Lord opened the eyes of the young man’
He opened the eyes of a man that was young.️😊☺

God is not a respecter of persons, age, status, pedigree, culture, you name it all that does not matter to God.
God is not a respecter of persons, age, status, pedigree, culture, you name it all that does not matter to God.
Those things cannot guarantee you a place in heaven, titles do not give you an all access pass to see God.
What God sees is the heart, and He manifests His presence amongst the humble.
“For the preaching of the cross is to them that perish foolishness; but unto us which are saved it is the power of God.”
1 Corinthians 1:18
“Because the foolishness of God is wiser than men; and the weakness of God is stronger than men.”
1 Corinthians 1:25
“For ye see your calling, brethren, how that not many wise men after the flesh, not many mighty,not many noble, are called:”1 Corinthians 1:26
“But God hath chosen the foolish things of the world to confound the wise; and God hath chosen the weak things of the world to confound the things which are mighty;”
1 Corinthians 1:27
“That no flesh should glory in his presence.”
1 Corinthians 1:29
“But of him are ye in Christ Jesus,who of God is made unto us wisdom,and righteousness, and sanctification, and redemption:”1 Corinthians 1:30
“That, according as it is written, He that glorieth, let him glory in the Lord.”
1 Corinthians 1:31
The Lord will fight against those who fight against you.
The Lord shall come as a fire in the midst of your enemies, and He shall consume them.
When the presence of The Lord comes down He does not come down ordinarily, but extraordinarily.
He brings the super to the natural.
When the presence of The Lord comes down He does not come down ordinarily, but extraordinarily.
He brings the super to the natural.
They came with their horses and chariots against Elisha, but God came with horses and chariots of Fire!
Pray to witness the presence of God, to dwell in His glory, and to be filled with His fire.
If someone was to ask me how do I know that the Lord is faithful?
I would simply reply because He has never failed me with His Word.️❤
“So when the Syrians came down to him, Elisha prayed to the LORD, and said, “Strike this people, I pray, with blindness.” And He struck them with blindness according to the word of Elisha.”
II Kings 6:18
If we really humble ourselves, to the point where we are so much in need of our Heavenly Father like an innocent baby is in need of their parents, I believe only then will we see more of God.
We must become like little children in the presence of God.
IMG_2012
“At that time the disciples came to Jesus, saying, “Who then is greatest in the kingdom of heaven?””
Matthew 18:1
“Then Jesus called a little child to Him, set him in the midst of them,”
Matthew 18:2
“and said, “Assuredly, I say to you, unless you are converted and become as little children, you will by no means enter the kingdom of heaven.”
Matthew 18:3
“Therefore whoever humbles himself as this little child is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven.”
Matthew 18:4
“Then they brought little children to Him, that He might touch them; but the disciples rebuked those who brought them.”
Mark 10:13
“But when Jesus saw it, He was greatly displeased and said to them, “Let the little children come to Me, and do not forbid them; for of such is the kingdom of God.”
Mark 10:14
“Assuredly, I say to you, whoever does not receive the kingdom of God as a little child will by no means enter it.””
Mark 10:15
“And He took them up in His arms, laid His hands on them, and blessed them.”
Mark 10:16
Humility is the key to receiving eternal life through Jesus Christ.
Pride is the key to receiving eternal damnation through satan.
You choose.
Free will comes from God, even though He created you.
If we are adamant on living a life in doubt, then we will never see the goodness of God.
“Then Elisha said, “Hear the word of the LORD. Thus says the LORD: ‘Tomorrow about this time a seah of fine flour shall be sold for a shekel, and two seahs of barley for a shekel, at the gate of Samaria.’ ””
II Kings 7:1
“So an officer on whose hand the king leaned answered the man of God and said, “Look, if the LORD would make windows in heaven, could this thing be?” And he said, “In fact, you shall see it with your eyes, but you shall not eat of it.””
II Kings 7:2
Wow, take note that Samaria was in a time of famine.
God declared His Word through Elisha that He would provide food,
but the officer doubted and because of this he saw the goodness of God, but he never tasted of it.
IMG_2008
Why do we do that?
God has declared His promises in our lives, but yet we still doubt.
Why do we often forget what The Lord has already done in our lives?
It’s sad that we often focus on the now rather than the promises of God.
And that is a harsh punishment you know, to see food in the midst of famine but yet unable to eat of it imagine the torture.
I am sure that this is a Word in season for all of us, to focus on God rather than on all that is going on around us
God is more than able to turn the impossible to possible, He is more than able to turn any and every situation around.
We just need to trust Him more, brethren He is more than able to open up the windows of heaven and pour out blessings for you.
You just need to be patient and pray for God to open your spiritual eyes so that you can see what He sees.
Believers, our future is bright because it has been established in JESUS Christ.
You need to get rid of this enemy called doubt, and just make a decision to trust the good thing that God has said concerning you.
Jesus is the light of the world, and His light shines through us for all the world to see.
When we doubt we are unable to make decisions, we are unstable.
It’s difficult to make decisions without God, and that is why we must involve God in every area of our lives.
That is why it is also very important to be in God’s perfect will, don’t resist Him just trust Him.
And because I know that it is never too late with God, I am encouraged and I am progressing in faith with God by my side.
And with God by my side how can I fail.
I won’t.
A lot of things that God has said have not made sense to me, I was expecting it to be this way,
I was expecting it to be similar to those around me,
and because of that I was frustrated lol and dare I say a tad bit stubborn
but I have learnt and I have realised, that in this life it is always best to listen to God.
The officer that doubted God’s Word placed himself in stagnation, because he didn’t believe God’s Word could be possible.
As Christians we must believe that The Word of God is possible.
Doubting God is a never ending cycle of never getting to where The Lord has destined for you to be.
Doubting God leads to procrastination, which leads to frustration, which leads to stagnation, and the final destination is destruction.
You see doubt just spirals out of our control and into the control of satan, that is why we must place everything in the Hands of God.
God must take full control of our lives.
And let me tell you something if God does not have control over your life, then best believe satan does.
Here is another example of how doubt causes delay.

“And Zacharias said to the angel, “How shall I know this? For I am an old man, and my wife is well advanced in years.””
Luke 1:18
“And the angel answered and said to him, “I am Gabriel, who stands in the presence of God, and was sent to speak to you and bring you these glad tidings.”
Luke 1:19
“But behold, you will be mute and not able to speak until the day these things take place, because you did not believe my words which will be fulfilled in their own time.””
Luke 1:20
We must silence the voice of doubt which is the voice of the enemy, and believe that The Word of God will be established in His own time.
I pray that God will help us in regards to decision making.
I pray that we will make decisions based on God’s Word, and not based out of frustration, the word of man, fear, or doubt.
“Trust in the LORD with all your heart, And lean not on your own understanding;”
‭‭Proverbs‬ ‭3:5‬
“In all your ways acknowledge Him, And He shall direct your paths.”
‭‭Proverbs‬ ‭3:6‬
“I will instruct you and teach you in the way you should go; I will guide you with My eye.”
‭‭Psalms‬ ‭32:8‬
We do not have to allow our current situations to make decisions for us.
That should not be our focus.
Our focus should be based upon the faith that we have in God.
Focusing on God is what gives us determination, and the strength to not only persevere but to also endure and overcome all things.
“Now there were four leprous men at the entrance of the gate; and they said to one another,“Why are we sitting here until we die?” II Kings 7:3
“If we say, ‘We will enter the city,’ the famine is in the city, and we shall die there. And if we sit here, we die also. Now therefore, come, let us surrender to the army of the Syrians. II Kings 7:4
“And they rose at twilight to go to the camp of the Syrians; and when they had come to the outskirts of the Syrian camp, to their surprise no one was there.”
II Kings 7:5
IMG_2010
Believers, these were leprous men they were excommunicated because of their disease.
Yet they were tired of remaining stagnant.
Have you ever gotten to a place where enough is enough?!
You’re just tired of being afraid, tired of not progressing?
Well then it is time for you to pluck up some courage and walk in boldness.
The four lepers got up, they decided not to sit in self pity anymore because self pity produced no results.
They made a decision based on faith, and that decision produced results because brethren, there was no one there to pursue not attack them!
Honestly, why do we worry?
Oh Lord forgive us for worrying.
God says that we must work out our faith with fear and trembling for a reason.
With God there’s no such thing as comfortable, best believe with God you will be pushed beyond your limits because God is limitless.
When we trust God things because so much easier, if you do not believe me then at least believe what He has already declared in His Word.
Believers if we desire to see the fullness of God, if we desire to see results then we must make decisions based upon The Word of God.
“For the Lord had caused the army of the Syrians to hear the noise of chariots and the noise of horses—the noise of a great army; so they said to one another, “Look, the king of Israel has hired against us the kings of the Hittites and the kings of the Egyptians to attack us!””
II Kings 7:6
“Therefore they arose and fled at twilight, and left the camp intact—their tents, their horses, and their donkeys—and they fled for their lives.”
II Kings 7:7
“And when these lepers came to the outskirts of the camp, they went into one tent and ate and drank, and carried from it silver and gold and clothing, and went and hid them; then they came back and entered another tent, and carried some from there also, and went and hid it.”
II Kings 7:8
“Then they said to one another, “We are not doing right. This day is a day of good news, and we remain silent.
If we wait until morning light, some punishment will come upon us. Now therefore, come, let us go and tell the king’s household.”” II Kings 7:9
Forever The Word of God is settled, and it is so sweet to trust in Jesus.😊
These four lepers were not only wise, but they were also honest.
When we involve God in the decisions that we make we will not be selfish, and we will not be pretentious.
Finally, often we are unaware that most of the decisions we make have a great affect on others whether positively or negatively.
The four lepers had no idea that the army of The Lord was with Elisha, yet they still made a decision to step out in faith, and that decision caused others to know what The Lord had done!
Listen, your decisions shall create testimonies for you in Jesus Name!
Please, do not be discouraged embrace the season in which you are in, pray to see what God sees, and make a decision to trust God always.
It is never too late to trust God, and remember that with God no wrong decisions can be made.
There should always be a purpose to the decisions we make.
I pray in The Mighty Name of Jesus that we shall never make meaningless decisions.
Amen.🙏
It’s so sweet to trust in Jesus and to dwell upon His Word
And to dwell upon His promise
And to know thus says The Lord.️🙏
Jesus, Jesus how I trust You and how I’ve proved you over and over!
Jesus, Jesus precious Jesus.
Oh for grace to trust You more.❤🙌️
The more you wait on God the more God will bless you.️🙏
There are so many scriptures that The Lord is encouraging me with today, but let me encourage you with one more.
There is a lady in the bible who was told to leave where she was because there would be a famine, and to return in seven years.
Seven years!
Let’s see if she made the right decision.☺
“Then Elisha spoke to the woman whose son he had restored to life, saying, “Arise and go, you and your household, and stay wherever you can; for the LORD has called for a famine, and furthermore, it will come upon the land for seven years.””
II Kings 8:1
“So the woman arose and did according to the saying of the man of God, II Kings 8:2
“It came to pass, at the end of seven years, that the woman returned from the land of the Philistines; and she went to make an appeal to the king for her house and for her land.”
II Kings 8:3
“Then the king talked with Gehazi, the servant of the man of God, saying, “Tell me, please,all the great things Elisha has done.””II Kings 8:4
“Now it happened, as he was telling the king how he had restored the dead to life, And Gehazi said, “My lord, O king, this is the woman, and this is her son whom Elisha restored to life.””
II Kings 8:5
“And when the king asked the woman, she told him. So the king appointed a certain officer for her, saying, “Restore all that was hers, and all the proceeds of the field from the day that she left the land until now.””
II Kings 8:6
Can you now understand the decisions we make are not to glorify ourselves, but to glorify God.
The Shunamite woman could have made the decision to not leave where she was, she could have even interrupted the process by returning before the seventh year but she didn’t she heeded to The Word of God, and because of that God used what He had already done in her life to restore all that she had lost.
IMG_2001
Isn’t our God good, isn’t our God amazing, isn’t our God faithful.️😊
Jesus is our blessed assurance.
Remember there is a time for everything, and God’s time is the best.
