YOU ARE TOO LOADED TO FAIL

Categories: From the Bishop

‘’That the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may give unto you the spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of Him: Eph 1:17{KJV}

 As a result of the fall of man in the Garden of Eden, many believers still see themselves as ordinary, in-spite of the enormous deposits of God in their lives. Many do not have a clear understanding of the finished work of Christ and the benefits that accrued thereof. When Jesus died, He paid in full. In other words, His death did not only deliver to you the gift salvation, but every other thing you would ever need. It came as a total package.

Everything you would ever need to be all that God has ordained for you is already provided for in Christ. Let us look at the scriptures. 2 Corinthians 5:17 says that ‘’if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature, old things are passed away and all things are become new.’’ It also says in 1 John 5:4 -5 that whatsoever is born of God, overcometh the world and that everyone that is a believer is born of God. Are you a believer? If you are, then begin to see yourself as a world overcomer.

Child of God, see yourself in your inner man and not in the flesh. See yourself as God sees you – a winner, a victor, an overcomer and not a failure. You are the head and not the tail. That’s who you are! Stop seeing your human weaknesses and frailties, but rather see yourself attaining to great heights through Christ.  Never get to a point in your Christian experience where you are overwhelmed by challenges. No matter what comes your way, you should always know what to do. Can you imagine Jesus ever getting stuck with challenges and not knowing what to do? Was there any situation in scripture where He became overwhelmed or confused? No, you can never see that in scripture. He knew who He was and what to do at all times. If Jesus was never confused, then you also have no business getting confused.

Oftentimes, the problem with us as believers is that we fail to appropriate what God has already done for us in Christ. Beloved, whenever you see yourself as flesh, you are limited and you miss the point. God does not see you as you are. He does not see you as a sinner of failure. No. He sees you in Christ, because you have been In-Christed. When you made Jesus your Lord and Master, you became one with Him in the spirit. Colossians 1:27 says that ‘’Christ in you is the hope of glory’’. Beloved, simply put, Christ in you is the end of shame and embarrassment. Christ in you is the end of frustration, disappointment and failure.

Let me remind you that God will do anything for the sake of Christ that is in you. Remember He quickened you, raised you up and made you to sit with Christ in heavenly places far above principalities and powers. That is why you can never fail.

With Jesus in the inside and working on the outside you have more than what it takes. Remember Jesus didn’t have to die, but He did so you can walk in royalty. He wants you to be blessed so refuse to be satisfied with the crumbs. Put on the imagination of success. Take a step of faith today. Think big. Talk big. Meditate regularly on these truths and no power or circumstance can overwhelm you. I bless you.

Maranatha!
