Topic: Control Your Appetite [Saturday February 25, 2017]
“And Esau said to Jacob, Feed me, I pray thee, with that same red pottage; for I am faint: therefore was his name called Edom.” (Genesis 25: 30)
Your appetite can lead you into trouble if you are not careful. Men fail when they yield to diverse temptations.Answers to prayers come to you through altars.
In Gen 25:22, Rebekah became pregnant with a set of twins, Esau and Jacob, and inside her womb, was a battle for supremacy. Anyone who tells you life does not have battles is deceiving you. That is why I always feel sorry for those who come to church but are lukewarm. The reason the descendants of Esau can never defeat those of Jacob is because even before Esau and Jacob came into the world, Jacob had already defeated Esau in the womb. He settled it there.
If you must win the battles in your job, business, marriage, education, etc, you need to settle it from day one. January is the best time to start but February isn’t bad. Win your battles early and make the battles of the other months a stroll in the park.
The fact that God wishes something for you doesn’t mean you will automatically get it. You need to rearrange yourself to make it happen. Good things don’t just happen. Good people make them happen. Any battle you have won cannot be un-won.
You will defeat any human being and power that contends with you this year. You will defeat every contrary prophesy and satanic utterance from any other altar. The powers that once held you have released you. You will defeat those that want to take your job, your destiny, and your life, in the name of Jesus.
WORDS OF WISDOM: When an Esau grieves the mother, she turns around to support Jacob.
PRAYER/CONFESSION: Father, by Your grace, help me to give birth to my blessings and opportunities.
