Wisdom For The Submitted Christian

Apostle Grace Lubega

1 Corinthians 11:1 (KJV): Be ye followers of me, even as I also am of Christ.

WISDOM FOR THE SUBMITTED CHRISTIAN

The instructions of your spiritual authority must always be submitted to the Word of God.

In the church of Christ today, it is sad to see some Christians exalting what is spoken by pastors, apostles, prophets or any spiritual authority above what God says.

Succinctly, it is this thinking and attitude that makes ‘God’ of the minister instead of Jehovah. It is therefore contrary to the gospel of Jesus Christ.

No man of God died for your sins only Jesus the Messiah did. So listen to your man of God but only according to truth!

Don’t perish because of him or her. Follow him or her as he or she follows Christ.

Christ is the standard. Hallelujah!

FURTHER STUDY: Ephesians 5:1-2, Hebrews 6:12

GOLDEN NUGGET:

The instructions of your spiritual authority must be submitted to the Word of God. Follow him or her as he or she follows Christ. Christ is the standard!

PRAYER: My God, I thank you so much for this wisdom. Lord, these truths in their simplicity and firmness preserve the Church and minister to us in the ways that grow us and make us accountable in the eyes of the many that study our patterns every day. You’ve taught me submission but you have also taught me the pattern of submission. It can only be in accordance to your Word and after Christ. My life is framed by this knowledge to the glory of your name. Amen.

Wisdom In The Liberties

Apostle Grace Lubega

1 Corinthians 6:12 (KJV): All things are lawful unto me, but all things are not expedient: all things are lawful for me, but I will not be brought under the power of any.

The law of liberty has given us access to many things in God.

However, this liberty must be exercised with caution.

The caution here, beloved saint, is that these lawful things may put one under their power.

It means that when the laws of the Spirit favour you and give you certain things, those things may divert you from your divinely ordained course.

The laws of the Spirit will favour you to have money but will money have power over you?

The laws of the Spirit will favour you to have a car but will that car become your god?

The laws of the Spirit will give you a wonderful ministry but will the ministry have power over you?

Will you feel exalted above measure and lose the pattern of the course of your life simply because God added a million dollars to your account?

No, it is not for you, child of grace to be brought under the power of the laws that favour you.

Your spirit has the stability to contain the blessings of God and everything that comes with them. Hallelujah!

FURTHER STUDY: Deuteronomy 32:15, 1 Corinthians 10:23

GOLDEN NUGGET:

It is not for you child of grace to be brought under the power of the laws that favour you. Your spirit has the stability to contain the blessings of God and everything that comes with them.

PRAYER: My God, I thank you because you have blessed me exceedingly and abundantly. I have open access to my divine inheritance. But Father, I choose not to be brought under the power of any of these things. Blessing is an opportunity to serve you even more. Everything you give is a tool for the gospel. In Jesus’ name. Amen.

The Fatness Of The Anointing

Apostle Grace Lubega

Isaiah 10:27 (AMP): So it will be in that day, that the burden of the Assyrian will be removed from your shoulders and his yoke from your neck. The yoke will be BROKEN BECAUSE OF THE FAT.

The anointing of God upon our lives has degrees and each of us functions according to the degree of that anointing that is at work within us.

Our theme scripture describes this as FATNESS and the yoke is broken because of the fat.

Here is an allegory.
Imagine a yoke tied around the neck of an animal. If that animal fattens and increases in size, it means that the yoke can no longer hold it.

So it is with the believer.

As you continue to yield to God and allow Him to work through you, you get to a point where certain yokes simply start to break off because they can no longer hold you.

As you grow, the fatness of the oil cannot allow certain yokes.

It doesn’t matter whether your family has a history of bareness; of terminal illness or of poverty.

Simply stir up the anointing, deliverance will come.

Stir up the anointing, change will come.

Understand the anointing, you will stand before kings.

The yoke is broken BECAUSE of the fatness. Hallelujah!

FURTHER STUDY: 1 John 4:4, Romans 8:10-11

GOLDEN NUGGET:
The anointing has degrees and each of us functions according to the degree of the anointing at work upon our lives.

PRAYER: My loving father, I am thankful for this Word. I grow in the anointing and also increase the anointing upon my life. I thank you because of the transformation in my life as I continue to yield to your power. In Jesus’ name. Amen.

The Fourth Man In The Fire

Apostle Grace Lubega

Daniel 3:23-25 (KJV): And these three men, Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego, fell down bound into the midst of the burning fiery furnace. Then Nebuchadnezzar the king was astonished, and rose up in haste, and spake, and said unto his counsellors, Did not we cast three men bound into the midst of the fire? They answered and said unto the king, True, O king. He answered and said, Lo, I see four men loose, walking in the midst of the fire, and they have no hurt; and the form of the fourth is like the Son of God.

Before Shadrach, Mesach and Abednego were thrown into the fire, the king had commanded that the furnace be heated seven times more! (Daniel 3:19).

These fearless men were then cast into the fire.

When it was expected that this blazing fire would reduce them to meaningless ashes, a fourth man appeared in the fire!

The fourth man, Jesus, is a consuming fire; He is too hot and it took a certain degree of heat in that furnace for Him to appear.

Never be afraid of the fires that men build to incinerate you! That is the very place Jesus will appear.

It does not matter how hot it burns. That fire, that circumstance that looks like it will consume you alive is the very opportunity God is waiting for to show up on your behalf.

In that fire, men will look at you and know that you are not alone for God is with you!

In that fiery storm, your enemies will examine your life and declare that Jehovah God is truly on your side!

What was set up to destroy you is the very thing with which you will demonstrate the everlasting faithfulness, love, kindness and power of the Almighty God. Hallelujah!

FURTHER STUDY: Isaiah 43:2, Hebrews 12:29

GOLDEN NUGGET:

Never be afraid of the fires that men build to incinerate you! That is the very place Jesus will appear. What was set up to destroy you is the very thing with which you will demonstrate the everlasting faithfulness, love, kindness and power of the Almighty God.

PRAYER: Father, I thank you for today’s Word. What a comfort to know that no matter how hot the flames, you are always with me. These are the convictions of Emmanuel–the knowledge that God is with me. How can I be afraid of circumstances when you can never let any fire consume me or any waters drown me? I don’t care how hot the furnace might be, I have God. I can never be defeated, I can never be consumed. Victory is my story. In Jesus’ name. Amen.

A Present Continuous Victory

Apostle Grace Lubega

John 1:5(KJV): And the light shineth in darkness; and the darkness comprehended it not.

The language of our theme scripture is that light “SHINETH” in darkness and the darkness “COMPREHENDED” it not.

Your testimony is that of a present continuous experience of victory [SHINETH] while that of the devil is a past experience of defeat [COMPREHENDED]!

The devil is stuck in the past.

You have no business bringing him into your present or your future.

He tried to understand you and failed!

He tried to defeat you and failed!

He tried to kill you and failed!

He tried to wreck your marriage and failed!

He tried to destroy your child and failed!

Look at every circumstance in your life through this lens of truth: the devil’s defeat is a past tense issue.

Continue to shine in the liberty of this knowledge. Hallelujah!

FURTHER STUDY: John 16:33, 1 John 4:4

GOLDEN NUGGET:
Your testimony is that of a present continuous victory while that of the devil is a past defeat.

PRAYER: My father, what a marvellous truth! Today, I embrace this understanding! I refuse to acknowledge the power of the enemy over my family, health, marriage or education. He was defeated, I am more than a conqueror reaping the benefits of Christ’s victory. I acknowledge the life of the Spirit that is continuously flowing out of me to your praise and glory! In Jesus’ name. Amen.

Live Expansively

Apostle Grace Lubega

2 Corinthians 6:11-13 (MSG); Dear, dear Corinthians, I can’t tell you how much I long for you to enter this wide-open, spacious life. We didn’t fence you in. The smallness you feel comes from within you. Your lives aren’t small, but you’re living them in a small way. I’m speaking as plainly as I can and with great affection. Open up your lives. Live openly and expansively!

God has called us to a glorious life in Him and that life is lived from the inside out.

Many people are conscious of what is around them: the pain, the poverty, the strife, the heartache or the sickness.

Their worlds are narrowed to only what they can perceive through the physical senses.

The Bible says, “The smallness you feel comes from within you.”

But listen to the Father, child of faith!

He says, “Your Life is not small but you are living it in a small way.”

Look at what God has done. Understand that you have treasure in earthen vessels (2 Corinthians 4:7).

Understand the infallible truth that He has placed the world in your heart. (Ecclesiastes 3:11).

How you live WITHIN determines how you live WITHOUT.

Your Life is not small. Live EXPANSIVELY. Hallelujah!

FURTHER STUDY: 2 Corinthians 4:7, Ecclesiastes 3:11

GOLDEN NUGGET:

How you live WITHIN determines how you live WITHOUT. Your Life is not small. Live EXPANSIVELY.

PRAYER: My Great Lord I thank you. What a great truth to know that He who made the universe lives in me; He who framed the earth and gave the ocean its course has made my body His home. Heaven is your throne, earth is your footstool, you who dwells in the lofty place and inhabits eternity. You live in me. How can I be normal? How can I think small? How can I be intimidated by circumstances? No! I am great, I am big and I am doing things that put a dent in the universe. The world marvels at what comes out of me. This is the story of my life because the greater one lives in me. In Jesus’ name. Amen.

The Eyes Of The Word

Apostle Grace Lubega

Hebrews 4:12 (KJV): For the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any twoedged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.

The Word of God has eyes.

In this dispensation, there are Christians who only look to men of God to tell them about God’s will for their lives.

Indeed, a man of God may see that you have a problem with your marriage but he might not see that there is a storm brewing at your work place in which you may get caught.

He may see the disease seeking after the life of your child but may not see that death is seeking you.

He may see some details of your life that need fixing but he won’t see it all.

But you have the WORD!

The Word searches, cuts asunder, separates bone and marrow and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.

Nothing is hid from Him and all things are open, exposed, naked and defenceless before Him (Hebrews 4:13 AMP).

The Word will look into your life and expose what you must fix.

The Word is the mirror that will tell you what needs to change.

The Word will expose the heart of your next business partner to you and you will know if they mean you harm.

The Word will lay bare the heart of your intended spouse and you will know if you have to choose them as a life partner or not.

He-the Word-will give you wisdom among the simple.

He will give you discernment among the naïve and gullible.

He will give you precision among those that aim for greatness.

Child of truth, always look at life through the Word of God!

FURTHER STUDY: Jeremiah 23:29, Psalms 119:130

GOLDEN NUGGET:

The Word of God has eyes. Always look at life through the Word!

PRAYER: My great and loving father, I delight in the knowledge that your will for my life is peace, joy, righteousness, grace and greatness! As a good, good father, you have laid your heart bare in your Word. Today, I have made the choice to read it with this knowledge. How can I be deceived when I have the Word? How can I not know my next step when I have the Word? How can I fumble like one in the darkness of the future when I have the Word? I regard your Word above ALL else because I know you have exalted your Word above your name. Thank you Lord. In Jesus’ name. Amen.

A Free Christian

Apostle Grace Lubega

Luke 13:15 (KJV): The Lord then answered him, and said, Thou hypocrite, doth not each one of you on the sabbath loose his ox or his ass from the stall, and lead him away to watering?”

From our theme scripture, in giving the analogy of loosing an ox or ass and leading it to water, Jesus explains one vital principle of the life of the Spirit: we are FREED to RUN to the WATERS.

One cannot speak of freedom in the things of God without making reference to ACCESS TO WATER.

This is not physical water. Water represents the Word of God.

Ephesians 5:26 speaks of the cleansing of the Church by the washing of water with the Word.

So, the true testimony of a person who is free is that they HUNGER for the Word of God.

It is okay to seek healing, deliverance, increase or multiplication in ministry but act like you are free!

Always look to the Word of God and make it a part of your daily life.

There is nothing as mighty and powerful as the Word of God; it is the FOUNDATION of God’s promises, the BEDROCK of our faith and the SOURCE of our freedom.

Study it like your life depends on it because it does!

Apply it like your life depends on it, because it does!

Never let your eyes depart from it, keep it in the midst of your heart!

Never compromise on giving the Word the attention it deserves.

Pray in it, confess it, seek God in it, worship in it, and pay the price to grow in it.

That is a free Christian! Glory to God!

FURTHER STUDY: Colossians 3:16, Joshua 1:8

GOLDEN NUGGET:

The true testimony of a person who is free is that they HUNGER for the Word of God.

PRAYER: Father God, your Word is priceless! When I had nothing, I had the Word. When I had it all, I still had the Word. This Word has kept me, preserved me, taught me, led me, instructed me and shown me how to see the world. Like David, I rejoice over it as one who has found great spoil. It forms the pattern of every area of my life. By it, I don’t only touch but I change my generation. In Jesus’ mighty name. Amen.

Till Your Land

Apostle Grace Lubega

Proverbs 28:19 (KJV): He that tilleth his land shall have plenty of bread: but he that followeth after vain persons shall have poverty enough.

The word spoken by a man or woman of God upon your life is not the absolute guarantee that what is spoken will come to pass.

Because some people have been deceived in thinking that all it takes is for a man of God to speak, they have set their hearts entirely on seeking men of God for what God is saying about them.

That should not be the life of a believer who seeks to grow in the things of God.

Like our theme scripture instructs, TILL YOUR LAND and you will enjoy plenty of bread.”

The land represents your heart. Tilling it means that you ALLOW the Word of God to be PLANTED and ROOTED in your spirit.

Seek and commit to understand how the spirit world works. You do this through studying the Word.

Give the Word of God first place in your life!

Pursue it!

Let it work in you and saturate every area of your life.

Speak it everywhere.

God has promised that you will have plenty of bread, which means you will have the results of the Word manifested greatly through you. Hallelujah!

FURTHER STUDY: Colossians 3:16, 1 Timothy 4:15

GOLDEN NUGGET:
Give the Word of God first place. Pursue it. Let it work in you and saturate every area of your life. Speak it everywhere. God has promised that you will have plenty of bread which means you will have the results of the Word manifested greatly through you.

PRAYER: My loving God, I thank you for the gift of your Word; the manual for my life, the campus for my divine travels and the road map of my destiny. I look to your Word above all else. It is on my lips, in my heart, mind and soul. Today, I make the choice by faith to live a Word patterned life. To the glory of your name. Amen.

Of Hidden Manna

Apostle Grace Lubega

Revelation 2:17 (KJV): He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches; To him that overcometh will I give to eat of the hidden manna, and will give him a white stone, and in the stone a new name written, which no man knoweth saving he that receiveth it.

When your ears in the spirit are opened, God reveals to you hidden things.

This is what the Bible has called HIDDEN MANNA.

In Moses’ day, manna used to fall every day; it was accessible to all of Israel while in the wilderness (Deuteronomy 8:16).

In the book of Revelation, God points us to that which is hidden.

This hidden manna are spiritual realities and truths that other people do not ordinarily see.
They are beyond human scrutiny.

This is why our Father God tells us, “Pray to me and I will show you great and unsearchable things that you know not”(Jeremiah 33:3).

The Hebrew word “BATSAR” for UNSEARCHABLE is translated to mean fenced, fortified, enclosed or inaccessible.

These things in God cannot be accessed by you searching them out.

They are accessed as you yield to God in LOVE!

You enter these places because you are established in the love of God and seek Him primarily because of your love for Him!

FURTHER STUDY: Jeremiah 33:3, Isaiah 45:3

GOLDEN NUGGET: 

When your ears in the spirit are opened, God reveals to you hidden things. You enter these places because you are established in the love of God and seek Him primarily because of your love for Him.

PRAYER: Father, I thank you for this Word. I delight in the knowledge that you want to reveal to me deep and unsearchable truths. I yield to the leading of your Spirit as He searches the bottomless things in you. What comes out of my spirit is what no eye has seen or ear has heard. I speak what is beyond the ordinary and utter the highest wisdoms of eternity. All to the glory of your name. Amen.
