44 Then Jesus cried out and said, “He who believes in Me, believes not in Me but in Him who sent Me.”
Today’s Inspiration: Our responsibility is to share the Good News. He who believes in Jesus believes in God who sent Jesus to show us the way, the truth and the Life. John 12:44. He comes as a light to the world and he who believes in Jesus should not abide in darkness. Therefore, if you are a believer of Jesus, then you should not be walking in the dark but come out of it despite the challenges you are facing. It’s all about your faith. And if anyone does not believe He does not judge him for He was sent not to judge the world but to save the world. V46-47. Therefore we should not judge those who don’t believe but keep sharing the timeless truth. Judgement will only be done on the last day according to the word that were spoken. V48. He has been given a command to speak only what His Father wants Him to speak. So Likewise we speak words not beyond what He wants His word to be delivered. He does not speak on His own authority. V49. His command is everlasting life. V50. Let your words be few and concise straight to the point that pierced one’s heart to yield this season.
Year 2020 we have to take heed not to speak beyond what our Father speaks lest we be judged. It’s the year of the spoken words, therefore we should sharpen our ears to hear. Jesus in his life has spoken many words and have done many signs and wonders yet the people do not believe in Him that the words of Isaiah may be fulfilled. Isaiah 6:9-10. Matthew 12:39-40. This is in view of their hardened hearts.
Unbelief is a tool Satan used on God’s people and it’s one of the greatest tool of Satan. This is why whenever a word is spoken, Satan will distort it and prevents people from receiving a healing, financial or redemptive miracle. This mental stronghold is wrecking the lives of many of God’s people, hindering their progress. The Israelites in the wilderness had such stronghold embedded in them that despite so many miracles, signs and wonders, they could not possess the promised Land. To defeat this stronghold, you are not to look left or look right but to focus on Jesus as the center of your faith and draw the measure of faith from him to apply to your situation for breakthrough. Those who do not waver from the promise had their promises fulfilled and are enjoying the fruit of the promise.
Therefore shake free from the mental stronghold ‘unbelief.’ Satan used unbelief to destroy your future. But Jesus comes to give you abundant Life and to grant you success in all that you do. Let not the thorn in the flesh hinder you from being exalted above measure. 2 Corinthians 12:7.
