Topic: You Have Been Empowered To Succeed [Sunday March 4, 2018]
“Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who hath blessed us with all spiritual blessings in heavenly places in Christ”. Ephesians 1:3 (KJV)
You already have all in Christ. You are not going to have all you already do. You have it! Just as it was given to Adam in Genesis 1:28: “… God blessed them, and said unto them, be fruitful, multiply, replenish the earth, subdue it and have dominion…”. The blessings are there inside you. It works from inside to outside. Ephesians 1:3 declares: “Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who hath blessed us with all spiritual blessings in heavenly places in Christ”. Always say to yourself: “I am blessed!” And say it in a manner that will make the devil get mad. You are blessed! Yes, that’s who you truly are. Blessed!
Do you know what it means to be blessed? It means that you have been empowered to succeed. You have been empowered to make it in life. You have been empowered to overcome anything that stands against you. You have the empowerment inside you. You are empowered to have a husband, to have a wife, to have children, to pass that exam; to have a job, to be creative and to be promoted. You have been empowered with knowledge of witty inventions. You are empowered to finish the house you are building. You are empowered to buy that land and to buy that car. You are empowered to overcome delays, disappointment and frustration in your life. You are empowered to overcome sicknesses and diseases. You are empowered!
It is there inside you. You have been empowered to raise your children. You have been empowered to be a good husband and to be a good wife. You have been empowered to rise above recession and economic instability. This is why I know that you can never be a failure. You are already empowered to succeed and you will surely succeed in Jesus’ Name.
