IS GOD REALLY SLOW? – 1

For the vision is yet for an appointed time, but at the end, it shall speak, and not lie: though it tarry, wait for it; because it will surely come, it will not tarry.

HABAKKUK 2:3

Many people think that God is slow because their blessings are delaying; God is not as slow as you think. He will soon bring to pass the things you are hoping for, and in case the thing is delaying; He can even cut it short. Maybe the thing is supposed to take a year but God can shorten it to six months. What took others ten years to accomplish will take you one year. Whatever the plan is, God says He has the capacity to cut it short. So God is not as slow as you think.

Even in the days of the Bible, there were people who even thought that God was slow. One of such people was David. David was the one God even referred to as "the man after my heart". He was in the bush and God had to look for him to make him a king. He enjoyed a lot of divine blessings yet David complained at some point.

It is interesting to know that the people who even have God’s attention are rather the ones complaining. Let us check one of his complaints in Psalms 13:1 “How long wilt thou forget me, O Lord? Forever? How long wilt thou hide thy face from me?” David came to the conclusion that the thing he was looking for and that which he was not getting meant that God had forgotten about him.

This is a similar situation with many believers today. They think that God has forgotten them so their attitude towards church has even changed. Sometimes a little patience can help the situation. I pray that God will put you on a platform that will make you unshakable again, and once you become unshakable, the devil cannot delay the manifestation of your blessings.

PRAYER:

• Pray and ask God to give you the spirit of patience to wait for the appointed time. (Job 14:14)

TODAY’S QUOTE:

• It is our lack of knowledge in Divine operation that makes us think that God is slow.

SCRIPTURE READINGS:

• 2 Peter 3:9, Ezekiel 12:28

1 YEAR BIBLE READING:

• 1 Samuel 19-21 and Luke 11:29-59

Main Text:
Acts 13:22
22 And when he had removed him, he raised up unto them David to be their king; to whom also he gave testimony, and said, I have found David the son of Jesse, a man after mine own heart, which shall fulfil all my will.From yesterday's devotional, we know that Without  purpose, life  is meaningless  and  unfulfilling. It is important for you to discover the purpose for which you were created,  blessed  and  anointed, and that God definitely created you for a purpose. God  anoints  you for a purpose.  Purpose  is  the  reason for the anointing.  Without purpose the anointing is either  wasted or abused. It is needful to also note that God  anoints people for a  purpose.You are  anointed to serve God  and touch people’s lives.  A powerful anointing  produces supernatural  results in others. God  anointed King David,  a  man after His…

Main Text:Genesis 1:28And God blessed them, and God said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth,  and subdue it: and have dominion over the fish of  the sea, and over the fowl  of the air, and over every living thing that moveth  upon the earth.The Oxford dictionary  defines “purpose” as the reason for which something is done or created or for which something exists. Without purpose, life  is meaningless and unfulfilling. It is important for you to discover the purpose for which you were created,  blessed and anointed.  Purpose is not the prerogative of  a privileged few in the world – everybody should know his or her purpose in life.God created you for a purpose.

The Seven Spirits of God By Rev Eastwood Anaba

Topic: The Seven Spirits of God
Scripture Reading:
Isaiah 11:1-2; Luke 4:1-19
Main Text:
Revelation 4:5
5 And out of the throne proceeded lightnings and thunderings and voices: and there were seven lamps of fire burning before the throne, which are the seven Spirits of God.
In  Isaiah  11:1-2, the  prophet Isaiah describes the seven-fold nature of the Spirit of the LORD who would rest on the Messiah. The Holy Ghost rests upon you with His perfect nature to subdue your human nature. His seven-fold nature overwrites your human inadequacies. His nature is superior to your human nature. He is what and who you are not. He does what you cannot do and gives what you cannot give.
In the book of  Revelation, John referred to the seven Spirits of God (Revelation 4:5). There is only one Holy Ghost so the term seven Spirits of God refers to the seven-fold character of the Holy Ghost. There is one Spirit with a seven-fold characterisation. Isaiah 11…
