ROR – Be Content With What You Have – Monday, May 11th, 2020 – By Pastor Chris Oyakhilome PhD. DSc. DD.

Keep your lives free from the love of money and be content with what you have, because God has said, “Never will I leave you; never will I forsake you” (Hebrews 13:5 NIV).

God wants our lives to be void of covetousness; don’t lust after what belongs to others. Be content with what you have. That doesn’t mean you shouldn’t dream or desire to attain greater levels of success; rather, it emphasizes being fulfilled and understanding that what you have is enough to get whatever else you want. But the truth is that there isn’t really anything that you don’t have.

The Bible says all things are yours (1 Corinthians 3:21); better than that, Christ is in you, and Christ is everything. So, in Him you have all things. When the crippled beggar at the gate of the temple called ‘Beautiful’ asked Peter and John for alms, Peter didn’t say, “I don’t have what you’re asking for,” and walk away; he knew he had something, and what he had was enough to produce whatever else may be required. He used what he had: the Name of Jesus in the power of the Holy Spirit, to effect a cure and restore life to the man’s hitherto dead and crippled limbs.

Always be conscious of what you have: the power and glory of Christ in your spirit. Your heart is the habitation of the Lord; do you know what that means? The ability of God is operational in you. How could anyone know this and ever be in lack or need or be envious of others? That’s why this knowledge is coming to you now, so you’d be content and confident in who you are, what you have, and all that Christ is to you and in you, and has wrought in your spirit.

Never think, “If I only had this or that”; you have what’s most important: Christ; and that’s all you need. Christ in you is the hope, the guarantee that everything else you could ever require is already in you. Glory to God!

Prayer

Precious Father, you’re my all; I thank you for filling me with yourself, which is the greatest and best of all—Christ in me! That’s my assurance that everything I could ever require is already in me as I produce fruits of righteousness for your glory, in Jesus’ Name. Amen.

#KeepSayingIt

I’m from above! My origin is in God. I refuse to live an ordinary life that is subject to sickness and disease! I declare that I dwell in radiant health and strength by the day. No disease or infirmity can dwell in me. The Word of God has creative power to transform my life. It brings health and life to my body, and transforms the circumstances of my life. I’ll never be sick in my life, in Jesus Name. Amen.

MY DAILY CONFESSIONS – I’M A JOINT HEIR WITH JESUS.

I boldly affirm that I belong to Christ, therefore, I am an heir according to the promise and a joint – heir with Jesus. Abraham’s blessings are mine. Virtues of perfection, excellence, and fruitfulness are common traits associated with me. I am blessed in the city, and the field, I am blessed coming in and going out, I am blessed to be a blessing; I am more than a conqueror! It’s impossible for me to fail because in me is God’s seed of greatness.

Excellence and productivity are my daily experiences. I’m a partaker of the divine nature. Therefore, the life of Christ flows through my being. I walk always in PERFECTION; the word guides me and keeps me steady in the path of success, victory, prosperity, abundance, honor and glory. I’m reigning in life. Hallelujah!

#TalkingSession – KINDLY SAY THESE WORDS OUT LOUD.

Blessed Lord Jesus, You’re my life, and my all; the very air that I breathe: my lover and best friend. Thank You for Your wisdom that guides me, and Your grace that is superabundant upon me. Your Word has transformed me, causing me to ride upon the high places of the earth. What a wonder You are, precious Saviour!

Thank You for Your love and eternal kindness towards me. I love You with all my heart! I rejoice for the presence of Your Spirit in my life, and the grace which causes the wilderness to be a fruitful field, and the fruitful field to become a forest. I am persistently productive in every area of my life: in my job, in my finances, in my academics, and in the Gospel.

I walk worthy of You always, pleasing You in all things, producing fruits and works of righteousness. I thank You for giving me Your Word to live by and to use in creating a glorious, victorious, and an ever-triumphant life! I am healthy, strong, and prosperous; my family, work, and ministry are flourishing exceedingly!

Your grace for increase and expansion is multiplied in my life by the day. My steps in life are directed and ordered by You, through the Word and Your Spirit. I am positioned in the right place and at the right time for Your purpose, in Jesus’ Name. Amen.

• Keep saying it, publish it everywhere; noise it abroad! In Christ, we’ve got something to shout about. Let’s flood the airwaves, internet, and print media with the reality of Christ.

Speak in other tongues now. ~ Pastor Chris Oyakhilome.
