Delight In The Lord

Apostle Grace Lubega

Psalms 37:4 (KJV): Delight thyself also in the Lord: and he shall give thee the desires of thine heart.

God is love, and it is important that as His child you relate with Him as LOVE.

Love is not an attribute of His; Love is His PERSON and very NATURE!

A man who has understood what it means to delight in the Lord is one who has understood how much God loves Him.

Delighting in the Lord is the joy of basking in the knowledge that He loves you.

This wisdom ought to define how you pray.

Some Christians go to God only to present problems or to beg.

They cry, “God this has happened…Why me? Why my family? What did I ever do to you God? God give me a new car…God I am tired of this job…God this…God that…”

But they never take time to simply delight in Him.

Regardless of your present circumstance, you must learn to delight in God.

Simply get into the presence of God to bask in the knowledge of the things He has done for you and how much He loves you.

“God I thank you for my wonderful life. I thank you that you chose me, called me, sanctified and separated me! I thank you because I did not seek you, by love you sought me! I thank you that nothing can separate me from your love, not life, not death, not things present not even things to come”

Delight in God.

“Oh, I am so blessed! I can count my blessings one by one and know that you have been faithful. I look at how much you have given me and dance with joy. I did not deserve it but you gave. You answered before I called. You provided before I prayed. What a faithful God! What a loving father!”

Delight in the Lord!

Hallelujah!

FURTHER STUDY: John 15:16, Psalms 21:2

GOLDEN NUGGET:
Delighting in the Lord is the joy of basking in the knowledge that He loves you.

PRAYER: Father, I thank you for this day. What a wonderful privilege to be a child of God! I rest in the knowledge that I am loved. Your love has cast out all fear. It is the reason nothing shakes me. I cannot be afraid of tomorrow or what the future holds because your love has been to my future and cast out anything that could have given me cause to fear. Today, I dance under the showers of your love and delight in the endless blessings you have made my portion. In Jesus’s name. Amen.

The Folly In Strife

Apostle Grace Lubega

1 Corinthians 3:1-3 (KJV): And I, brethren, could not speak unto you as unto spiritual, but as unto carnal, even as unto babes in Christ. I have fed you with milk, and not with meat: for hitherto ye were not able to bear it, neither yet now are ye able. For ye are yet carnal: for whereas there is among you envying, and strife, and divisions, are ye not carnal, and walk as men?

Love is the FORCE and BEDROCK by which many forces in the spirit function.

Faith works by love (Galatians 5:6).

Revelation increases in your spirit when you have understood and are established in the love of God.

When you look at what grieved Paul about the Corinthian church (envy, strife, divisions), all these were manifestations of not walking in love.

But imagine the consequence!

Paul was unable to feed them on spiritual meat and could only treat them as babes capable of only taking spiritual milk.

They could not advance to the next level of spiritual growth because of envy and strife. How sad!

Divisions, envyings and strife cut out the voice of God and of His revelation.

Pursue peace if you wish to continue hearing and knowing God deeply.

FURTHER STUDY: Hebrews 12:14, 1 Corinthians 13

GOLDEN NUGGET:
Divisions, envyings and strife cut out the voice of God and of His revelation. Pursue peace if you wish to continue hearing and knowing God deeply.

PRAYER: My God, I thank you for this Word. You have taught me the virtue in pursuing peace with all men. I desire to hear your voice over and over so I choose this day to set aside any kind of strife and envy that may hinder me. I walk in love because it is the testimony of those that truly know you. Thank you that as I live more and more by this pattern, you launch me into deeper depths of your Spirit. In Jesus name, Amen.

Love, The Law By Which We Utter

Apostle Grace Lubega

2 Corinthians 12:3-4 (KJV): And I knew such a man, (whether in the body, or out of the body, I cannot tell: God knoweth;) How that he was caught up into paradise, and heard unspeakable words, which it is not lawful for a man to utter.

Paul speaks of an experience where he was caught up in paradise and heard unspeakable words which it is not lawful for a man to utter.

The fact that it was not lawful for a man to utter these things does not mean that there was no place or provision in the spirit for these things to be uttered.

There is a place in God that lifts the constraints off these laws of utterance.

This place is in the love of God.

When love allows utterance, it communicates by means that are beyond merely speech.

Some Christians have been deluded to think that unless something is spoken, then it has not been communicated. But, there is a degree of love that doesn’t seek to speak.

Speaking is not the only way to minister to people.

When you understand the royal law of love, even your silence, thoughts and meditations minister.

In this realm, you don’t function by the gift upon your life.

The weakness of men that function purely by the gifts upon their lives is that they will seek to prove themselves in the places where God demands silence.

So when Paul speaks of the things which were unlawful to utter, in some instances he refers to functioning under the gift in the absence of love.

May God teach you to love, for love is the greatest liberty of the Spirit, and in love there are no limitations to utterance.

FURTHER STUDY: James 2:8, 1 John 4:8

GOLDEN NUGGET
Love is the greatest liberty of the Spirit, and in love there are no limitations to utterance.

PRAYER: My gracious father, thank you for this Word. Some truths cut us asunder and cause us to understand the heart by which we must seek God. Every day you remind me about this love that cuts through all dimensions. Depth is in love. Breadth is in love. Length is in love. Height is in love. I am a love creature and every day as I soar on the wings of the Spirit and launch into deeper experiences, it is only because I have been grounded in this love by you. In Jesus’ name. Amen.

Love Constrains Us: Regard No Man After The Flesh

Apostle Grace Lubega

2 Corinthians 5:14-16 (KJV): For the love of Christ constraineth us; because we thus judge, that if one died for all, then were all dead…Wherefore henceforth know we no man after the flesh: yea, though we have known Christ after the flesh, yet now henceforth know we him no more.

The character of love as revealed to us in the Bible sets a very high bar on how we ought to treat fellow men.

In 1 Corinthians 13:7 AMP, the Bible says of love, “love bears up under anything and everything that comes, is ever ready to believe the best of every person, its hopes are fadeless under all circumstances and it endures everything [without weakening].”

How does love believe the best of every person and endure everything without weakening?

The constraints of love, like the theme scripture says, dictate that we regard no man after the flesh.

It means that we do not judge men according to what they do in the flesh.

Yes, she is annoyingly quarrelsome but ignore that weakness in the flesh. Yes, he is rebellious but ignore that weakness in the flesh.

Consider the righteousness of God that he or she is (2 Corinthians 5:21). Consider the wisdom that God has placed inside them (1 Corinthians 1:30). Consider the treasure in earthen vessels (2 Corinthians 4:7).

Never judge a man for sin in the flesh. Look at their identity in God and pray for them so they walk in who they truly are in Him.

FURTHER STUDY: 1 Corinthians 13:8, 1 John 3:9

GOLDEN NUGGET:
Never judge a man for sin in the flesh. Look at their identity in God and pray for them so they walk in who they truly are in Him.

PRAYER: Father, I thank you for the revelation of your love. Lord, knowledge and prophecies may cease but love never fails. Abba, you have revealed that when I love, I can never fail to change a man; when I love, I can never fail to change circumstances. My spirit has been recreated in the image of love, I am the very love of God. Every day, I walk in its dictates: believing in people and looking at them through the very eyes that you look at them. By this, I know that I will change the world, because I am qualified with the highest degree, which is your love. In Jesus’ name. Amen.

Love Constrains Us: Other Men’s Burdens

Apostle Grace Lubega

2 Corinthians 5:13 (KJV): For the love of Christ constraineth us; because we thus judge, that if one died for all, then were all dead.

Through the years I have spent in ministry, I have learnt to continually pray for other people; it is the way of love.

When love constrains you, you learn to consider the needs of others above your own.

If you must see God, child of truth, you have to get to a place where prayer is not just about your needs.

He says “cast your burdens unto Him and He shall sustain you.” (Psalms 55:22).

The constraints of love dictate that we cast our own burdens to the Lord and carry other men’s burdens in our prayer.

Casting your burdens to Him means that you never allow them to take your attention even for a moment because you know that God cares and answers even before you ask. God’s part is to sustain you.

Lay aside your needs and embrace the cause of the gospel!

There are people whose prayer closets can make you weep. They never pray for anyone else except themselves; how wrong!

If your heart has not been opened to the needs of those nearest to you, how will God reveal to you the need of a nation, a continent or the world?

By love, CAST your burdens and CARRY other men’s burdens. We must be our brothers’ keepers.

Love must constrain us. Amen!

FURTHER STUDY: 1 Peter 4:8, 1 John 4:8

GOLDEN NUGGET:

By love, CAST your burdens and CARRY other men’s burdens.

PRAYER: My loving father, I thank you because you teach me to walk in love every day. This love causes me to look past my burdens to those of the people around me. This love is patient in me, it is long suffering in me, is kind in me, believes all things in me and always looks for the best in every person. This love teaches me the true spirit of the intercessor: that which puts others before self. I grow in this character every day. In Jesus’ name. Amen.

Love Constrains Us: The Heart Of Revival

Apostle Grace Lubega

2 Corinthians 5:13 (KJV): For the love of Christ constraineth us; because we thus judge, that if one died for all, then were all dead.

I have gotten to a place in my life where if God revealed to me that He intends to use a certain person to revive a place, I will pray for that person and do all I can to help them walk in that call.

It is good to ask God to use you but you must learn to pay the price for those who will never know that you did anything for them.

Do not seek God because you are waiting on Him for your opportunity to shine; seek Him out of the purity of a heart that truly loves Him.

Love constrained a man to die for this gospel that today we preach so freely and openly on the streets.

You may never meet the person who prayed for your pastor to give his life to Christ so he can in turn preach to you.

You may never meet the person who paid for the conference at which you met our Lord and saviour Jesus Christ. But, someone somewhere paid a price for someone they did not know.

That is the Spirit that gives the gospel its continuity. Love is the lifeblood of the gospel.

This is not about us. We are not after titles, positions or to be seen by men; we labour to please God.

Love must constrain you to CARRY the VISION of REVIVAL in your spirit: to intercede for those who may never know that you were a part of their revival, people who may never wish to associate with you and people who may never love you regardless of what you do.

Love must constrain you!

FURTHER STUDY: 2 Corinthians 12:15, Colossians 1:24

GOLDEN NUGGET:
Love must constrain you to CARRY the VISION of REVIVAL in your spirit: to intercede for those who may never know that you were a part of their revival, people who may never wish to associate with you and people who may never love you regardless of what you do.

PRAYER: Father, I am so humbled to be alive in these times. The days are speaking and I am privileged to be a part of your great work in the earth. The consciousness of this drives how I pray and seek your face. This is not about me; if you seek a man to stand in the gap, I am available. I stand in the gap for the prophet who must be a voice for the nations; I stand in the gap for the apostle who must carry a distinctive message for this generation; for the evangelist with a grace to win countless souls; for the mothers who must raise the greatest leaders of our generation; for the father who must mentor the next David; for the Hannah who must raise the next Samuel. I will not stop until I see these things in my generation. By love, I spend and I am spent for the sake of the gospel. To the glory of your name. Amen.

Ministry Is From The Inside

Apostle Grace Lubega

Ephesians 3:20 (KJV); Now unto him that is able to do exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think.

When God ministers to your spirit, he does so by impartation. This is because the spirit is the part of you that can articulate the divine things.

Our theme scripture says that God is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all that we ask or think according to the power that works within us.

What you see physically such as the depth of revelation, the healing of the blind, lame and deaf or the demonstration of the Spirit is all a part of what is inside the spirit of the minister.

We minister from our spirits and not from our minds.

What comes from the mind will only touch the mind but what comes from the spirit will touch the spirit.

And when the spirit is impacted, we realise the place of true transformation. Hallelujah!

FURTHER STUDY: Romans 1:11, 1 Corinthians 2:13

GOLDEN NUGGET:
What you see physically such as the depth of revelation, the healing of the blind, lame and deaf or the demonstration of the Spirit is all a part of what is inside the spirit of the minister.

PRAYER: Father, I thank you for your Spirit in the inside of me. I stand in the confidence that whatsoever I do is not by power, not by might but by your spirit. I operate by the power within. By this, I not only touch lives but I transform and change them to the glory of your name. Amen.

The Blessing To Attract

Apostle Grace Lubega

Deuteronomy 33:18 (KJV); And of Zebulun he said, Rejoice, Zebulun, in thy going out; and, Issachar, in thy tents. They shall call the people unto the mountain; there they shall offer sacrifices of righteousness: for they shall suck of the abundance of the seas, and of treasures hid in the sand.

In our opening scripture Zebulun and Isscahar received this blessing: that they would rejoice in their going out and in their dwelling places.

The name Zebulun, in the Hebrew means ‘exalted’. And the name Issachar means ‘there is recompense’ or ‘one who brings reward’.

Child of God, you suck the abundant treasures of the spirit every time you yield to the God who exalts you and rewards you in the places of your habitation.

There is a blessing for the man who has understood that God and He alone exalts and honours His servants (John 12:26) and that He and Him alone is your reward (Genesis 15:1).

It is in this place that you learn how to attract blessings, wisdom, greatness, and riches.
This is the reason we rejoice in our going out and in our tents! So, rejoice always! Rejoice that you are His righteousness, and that you attract blessings by His anointing.

You prosper in the desert, valley or plain because the blessing upon you attracts good things. Hallelujah!

FURTHER STUDY: Psalm 15:4, Psalm 19:7-11

GOLDEN NUGGET:
You suck the abundant treasures of the spirit every time you yield to the God who exalts you and rewards you in the places of your habitation. There is a blessing for the man who has understood that God and He alone exalts and honours His servants and that He and Him alone is your reward.

PRAYER: Heavenly Father, I thank you for the blessing of the Holy Ghost. I thank you because I am blessed with every blessing in the heavenly places in Christ Jesus. I have all things that pertain to life and godliness. I cannot want. In every circumstance I know how to profit. I am blessed of the Lord. God is my reward, and He that exalts my crown. In Jesus’ name. Amen.

The Effectual Working Of The Word

Apostle Grace Lubega

1 Thessalonians 2:13 (KJV); For this cause also thank we God without ceasing, because, when ye received the word of God which ye heard of us, ye received it not as the word of men, but as it is in truth, the word of God, which effectually worketh also in you that believe.

In our theme scripture we understand that the church at Thessalonica, at the time the Gospel was preached unto them, did not receive the Word of God as preached by Paul as though it were the words of a mere man. But they received it as the Word of God in truth.

For this reason, the Word which Thessalonica received worked effectually in them that did believe it.

The Greek word that is used to translate the words “effectually worketh” in our opening scripture is “energeō” which means to put forth power.

The Word of God you believe has a definite effect in your spirit. The moment you believe it, it starts to put forth power to make things around you respond to it.

Child of God, what does the Word of God say about you? Believe it and speak it upon your life.

Paul admonished us in his letter to Philemon, teaching us that ‘the communication of your faith is made effectual by the acknowledging of every good thing that is in you’ (Philemon 1:6).

Learn to communicate the Word of God with your mouth. Speak it upon your life. As you believe and speak it, it releases the power to cause results. Hallelujah!

FURTHER STUDY: Philemon 1:6, Mark 9:23

GOLDEN NUGGET:

The Word of God you believe has a definite effect in your spirit. The moment you believe it, it starts to put forth power to make things around you respond to it.

PRAYER: Dear Father, thank you for this great assurance. I thank you because all things are possible to him that believes. I live a life that demonstrates the miraculous. I abound in faith and I am fruitful in every good work, bearing results in my ministry, in my education, in my business, at my workplace, in my health and in my family life. I see your Word work in my life! Hallelujah!

The Revealed Things

Apostle Grace Lubega

Deuteronomy‬ ‭29:29 ‬(‭KJV);‬ The secret things belong unto the Lord our God: but those things which are revealed belong unto us and to our children for ever, that we may do all the words of this law.‬‬‬‬‬‬ God has made truth available to every man but only the truth revealed to you sets you free.

The Bible says “And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.” (John‬ ‭8:32‬).‬ ‬‬‬

Truth that is hidden from you will not benefit you.

From our theme scripture, the Bible says that the revealed things belong to us and our children.

This means that we have the grace to preserve posterity when things are revealed to us.

The scriptures tell us about all the things that the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ purchased for us.

But it’s only until these things are revealed to us that they are truly ours.

Our responsibility as children of God is to seek revelation of the same. Hallelujah!

FURTHER STUDY: Daniel 2:22, Amos 3:7

GOLDEN NUGGET:
God has made truth available to every man but only the truth revealed to you sets you free.

PRAYER: Father in the name of Jesus, I thank you for your word. I thank you Lord for the Spirit of revelation that is working in me. By it, I walk in the fulfillment of your promises. This Word works effectually in me and I see results in every area of my life. In Jesus’s name, Amen.
