The Grace Of Endurance

Apostle Grace Lubega

2 Timothy 1:8 (KJV): Be not thou therefore ashamed of the testimony of our Lord, nor of me his prisoner: but be thou partaker of the afflictions of the gospel according to the power of God…

When you are deeply anointed by God, it also follows that you will be deeply afflicted for the sake of the gospel. Some Christians forget this.

They admire the miracles and demonstrations of power and hunger for the portion of the anointing on another man’s life.

But the question is, are you ready to be a partaker of the afflictions of the gospel?

The anointing has a price to it and part of this price is ENDURANCE.

Be ready to pay the price. But in paying this price, remember that the grace is always greater than the price to be paid.

So, we are not of those who speak of a price without the grace to pay for it.

Like our theme scripture has revealed, you can only endure affliction according to the power of God. The Message version says, “We can only keep on going after all, by the power of God.” Hallelujah!

FURTHER STUDY: 2 Timothy 2:3, John 16:33

GOLDEN NUGGET:
The anointing has a price to it and part of this price is ENDURANCE. Be ready to pay the price. But in paying this price, remember that the grace is always greater than the price to be paid.

PRAYER: My God I thank you for your Word. I am grateful for your strength and power that is constantly at work through me. It builds in me the convictions of fortitude and the ability to endure all things for the sake of the gospel. This gospel is my life and nothing can ever cause me to draw back because of your grace and power at work in me. In Jesus’ name. Amen.

The Grace Dispensation

Apostle Grace Lubega

Ephesians 3:2 (KJV): If ye have heard of the dispensation of the grace of God which is given me to you-ward.

The grace of God is not just a doctrine.

Neither is it merely one of the attributes of God such as mercy and forgiveness.

Our theme scripture calls it a DISPENSATION.

It means that in both history and eternity, it was accorded a time period.

When we say that we are living in a grace dispensation, it means that anything done outside the revelation of this grace is not in accord with these times as understood in the Spirit.

You must understand these times, child of truth because these times are tagged to purpose and the divine plan of God. Hallelujah!

FURTHER STUDY: 2 Peter 1:12, John 1:17

GOLDEN NUGGET:
The Grace is not just a doctrine, it is a dispensation.

PRAYER: Father God, what a pleasure to be alive in this day! I thank you for your grace. Thank you for the new covenant that is built on better promises. Thank you for the blood of Christ that speaks better things than that of Abel. Thank you because this is not a day of vengeance but of your mercy poured out to us. I grow in grace and as I do, I am aligned to eternal purpose and course.
In Jesus’ name. Amen.

The Crown Of Wisdom

Apostle Grace Lubega

Ephesians 3:10 (KJV): To the intent that now unto the principalities and powers in heavenly places might be known by the church the manifold wisdom of God

God has revealed to us the incredible truth that it is the responsibility of the Church to demonstrate the MANIFOLD WISDOM OF GOD to the powers and principalities.

Principalities do not understand a prayer warrior, they understand the WISDOM of a prayer warrior.

You may pray so hard but if your prayer is not in the WISDOM OF GOD, you will never have the results of prayer.

You need WISDOM!

These principalities are waiting to see the wisdom coming out of your spirit, they will bow to you!

When God wants to fix your marriage, He will give you wisdom. When He wants to heal your body, He gives you wisdom. When He wants to change your finances, He will give you wisdom.

Seek wisdom and this wisdom is in the precious Word of God. Hallelujah!

FURTHER STUDY: Romans 11:33, 1 Corinthians 2:7

GOLDEN NUGGET:
God has revealed to us the incredible truth that it is the responsibility of the Church to demonstrate the MANIFOLD WISDOM OF GOD to the powers and principalities.

PRAYER: My father, I thank you for the crown of wisdom. This wisdom operates in every area of my life and causes circumstances to bow to the knowledge of who you are. Oh! I am wise! I am wise in my relationships, I am wise in my business, I am wise in my career, I am wise in my family! To the glory of your name. Amen.

Love, The Revealed Experience

Apostle Grace Lubega

Ephesians 3:19 (AMP): And [that you may come] to know [practically, through personal experience] the love of Christ which far surpasses [mere] knowledge [without experience], that you may be filled up [throughout your being] to all the fullness of God [so that you may have the richest experience of God’s presence in your lives, completely filled and flooded with God Himself].

Love is an experience.

There are some that claim to love God but don’t really love Him. When they say they love Him, it is because it sounds like a good thing to say or they heard it in a song.

But when you truly examine their spirits, such people are very far from the true definition of love.

You can never understand God’s love without the experience of it.

When your love relationship starts from the place of experience, it is then that you will start to truly know God.

Your relationship ceases to comprise of one sided conversations and becomes a deep friendship which is a two way street; you responding to God and God responding to you.

Seek love, the revealed experience. When you receive it, God substitutes all your pleasures with Himself.

The things that used to give you joy, if they are not of God will nolonger give you that joy because you have truly fallen in love with God.

FURTHER STUDY: Psalms 16:11, 1 John 4:8

GOLDEN NUGGET:
Love is an experience. You can never understand God’s love without the experience of it.

PRAYER: Father, I thank you for your love; it is the depth in depth; the breadth in breadth; the height in height. It fills all things and saturates every area of my life. Today I choose to walk in the deep assurance that I am sincerely and overwhelmingly loved by you and that nothing can ever separate me from this love. In Jesus’ name. Amen.

An Open Invitation

Apostle Grace Lubega

Song of Solomon 1:4 (KJV): Draw me, we will run after thee: the king hath brought me into his chambers: we will be glad and rejoice in thee, we will remember thy love more than wine: the upright love thee.

Solomon speaks of an intimate relationship between the King and His love, which represents the relationship between Christ and each one of us, His bride the Church.

He says, “Draw me, we will run after thee: the king hath brought me into his chambers.”

This starts with an invitation from God Almighty; it is He who draws us.

You can never have a proper relationship with God without understanding that it is He who invites you into His chambers rather than you inviting yourself.

God wants you to relate with Him based on your response to His invitation.

Go into the presence of God with the knowledge that He invited you and eagerly awaits to spend time with you.

Have the constant expectation that with this open invitation, God delights in communing with you.

This is what makes prayer A LOVE AFFAIR! Hallelujah!

FURTHER STUDY: John 6:44, Hosea 11:4

GOLDEN NUGGET:
God wants you to relate with Him based on your response to His invitation. Go into the presence of God with the knowledge that He invited you and eagerly awaits to spend time with you.

PRAYER: My loving father, thank you for the open invitation into your courts. Boldly, I come to the throne of grace knowing that you are my audience and I have your attention. I delight in basking in your presence because of the things you make me feel. Thank you for your love, for the things you reveal and for the constant and absolute pleasure of simply being with you. In Jesus’ name. Amen.

Why We Preach The Grace: The Pleasure Principle

Apostle Grace Lubega

Psalms 16:11 (KJV): Thou wilt shew me the path of life: in thy presence is fullness of joy; at thy right hand there are pleasures for evermore.

Pleasure is more often than not, greater than pain.

I wish you to understand the power of pleasure from this simple example.

A man might be diagnosed with lung cancer because of a consistent smoking problem. He may even be told that if he keeps up the habit, he will surely die. I assure you that this man may not necessarily stop smoking because of the threat to his life.

This is because at this point, the pleasure of smoking is greater than the pain of death.

When pleasure takes over the senses of a man, it does not matter how much pain he may suffer.

Look at the people who inject drugs into their bodies; they may do this several times a day with no regard to pain because of the subsequent pleasure of it.

You can never deliver such a man from his addiction until you substitute this pleasure with another pleasure.

Don’t be deceived into thinking that you can substitute pleasure with pain, that’s a waste of time.

You can never beat or shame a man out of his carnal pleasure.

You can only change him by introducing a higher pleasure–Jesus Christ, who is the ultimate pleasure of our souls.

He gives the drug addict a greater ‘high.’

He intoxicates the drunkard with the sweeter wine of the Holy Spirit.

Praise God!

FURTHER STUDY: Psalms 36:7-8, Proverbs 2:10

GOLDEN NUGGET:
You can never beat or shame a man out of his pleasure. You can only change him by introducing a higher pleasure–Jesus Christ, who is the ultimate pleasure of our souls.

PRAYER: Father God, you are my delight and the lover of my soul. I joy in who you are every day of my life. The knowledge of who you are has taken over my soul and nothing satisfies like you. Each day I bask in the wonder of simply knowing you, for nothing matters like this greatest of joys.
Thank you my Lord.
In Jesus’ name. Amen.

Life And Immortality To Light

Apostle Grace Lubega

2 Timothy 1:10 (KJV):…But is now made manifest by the appearing of our Saviour Jesus Christ, who hath abolished death, and hath brought life and immortality to light through the gospel.

It is one thing to have the revelation of life, to understand that the life of God is in you and that it revitalises your mortal body and kills the transactions of the flesh but it is another to have the revelation of both life and immortality.

This is the purpose of the gospel!

Our theme scripture says that it has brought life and immortality to light.

It means that through the gospel we have received the revelation of both the life of God and the fact that anything we do under the operation of that life is immortal.

Without this revelation, people walk in the darkness of two things: the fear that some thing will die and the further fear that if it dies, it will not revive again.

Child of eternity, not only do you have the God life but whatsoever you do and have in God is immortal. Hallelujah!

FURTHER STUDY: Matthew 24:35, John 10:10

GOLDEN NUGGET:

Through the gospel we have received the revelation of both the life of God and the fact that anything we do under the operation of that life is immortal.

PRAYER: My loving God, I thank you for this day. I am grateful for this revelation and the weight of this truth! Oh, how great is this understanding! I have the life of the Spirit and whatsoever I do and touch will never die. My ministry, vision and everything about my life demonstrates the life of God but deeper than that, they will never die. In Jesus’ name. Amen.

The Miraculous Faculty

Apostle Grace Lubega

Romans 1:11 (KJV): For I long to see you, that I may impart unto you some spiritual gift, to the end ye may be established;

In our theme scripture, the word used for “gift” is charisma, which among other things, is translated to mean, a “miraculous faculty”.

Paul sought to impart in the church a faculty and not just the product of the faculty. He sought to impart a miraculous faculty rather than to simply perform miracles amidst them; to show them how to fish rather than give them fish; to make them suppliers of spiritual things rather than just receivers of them.

Saints, it is maturity to place a demand on the faculty as opposed to just what the faculty can do.

So, child of God, don’t just ask for a job, get something that causes jobs to look for you. Don’t ask for fish, ask for how to fish. Don’t ask for healing, ask for what makes you heal. Hallelujah!

FURTHER STUDY: Matthew 4:19, 1 Corinthians 2:6

GOLDEN NUGGET: 
Child of God, don’t ask for a job, get something that causes jobs to look for you. Don’t ask for fish, ask for how to fish. Don’t ask for healing, ask for what makes you heal.

PRAYER: Father, I thank you for this day. Thank you for your instruction on how to pray and the things that define how I must seek you. Today, I choose to place a demand on the things that make men; the things that distinguish us in substance. To the glory of your name. Amen.

To Feel After God

To Feel After God

Apostle Grace Lubega

Acts 17:27(KJV): That they should seek the Lord, if haply they might feel after him, and find him, though he be not far from every one of us:

As Christians, sometimes we are selfish in our pursuit of God because we seek Him for our personal needs and gratification.

Someone is asking for the anointing and the grace to flow in the miraculous simply for his own benefit so that he or she may be seen as being powerful.

Where is the feeling after God?

Where is compassion?

Instead of panting for the anointing and the power to heal or to demonstrate the Spirit, ask yourself, ‘Do I feel His compassion? Do I love like Jesus loves?

This is because that is the very reason Jesus heals; the very reason He wins souls; the very reason He casts out devils.

I weep for the generation that does not want this love but wants its products!

Until you truly start to feel after God, you will never be able to die for the cause of what God is doing in this day.

You may be attracted to its glory and yet be too alive in the flesh to die for it.

FURTHER STUDY: 2 Corinthians 12:15, Matthew 14:14

GOLDEN NUGGET: 

Until you truly start to feel after God, you will never be able to die for the cause of what God is doing in this day. You may be attracted to its glory and yet be too alive in the flesh to die for it.

PRAYER: My loving God, I thank you for this Word. My heart is on the altar this day and yield to the working of your grace and Spirit. You cause me to love like you do, see things like you see them and desire what your heart desires. Out of the abundance of what you do in me, I minister. To the glory of your name. Amen.

To Be Dealt With By God

Apostle Grace Lubega

Romans 15:18 (MSG): I have no interest in giving you a chatty account of my adventures, only the wondrously powerful and transformingly present words and deeds of Christ in me that triggered a believing response among the outsiders.

There is a difference between what God does IN a man and what He does THROUGH a man.

You may heal the sick and stay sick; you can cast out demons and stay demonised. You may teach wealth and be poor.

The grace of God that causes men to respond to the message you preach both in word and in deed comes when a man ministers from what God has done IN him.

What isn’t coming from what God has done and placed within you cannot reproduce a grace to work in another man’s life.

As a Christian who seeks to grow, you ought to be more focused on what God works in you than what He works through you. Hallelujah!

FURTHER STUDY: Galatians 6:17, John 21:18

GOLDEN NUGGET:
The grace of God that causes men to respond to the message you preach both in word and in deed comes when a man ministers from what God has done IN him.

PRAYER: My loving God I thank you for the life you have given me and the great call you have ordained me for. Thank you because you are dealing with me every day and working in me the character of the Spirit: integrity, diligence, faithfulness, fortitude and the many things that set me apart as a child of God.
In Jesus’ name. Amen.
