Preached by Apostle André Pelser in Cape Town, South Africa.
‘As we draw near to God continually, He strengthens us to believe that our weaknesses will be turned into strength and our unbelief into strong faith. The dew of His presence and the power of His love will cause the change in us by His powerful Word.’ (Smith Wigglesworth)
Dare to believe God will lift you up into a place of abundance beyond all you can ask or think. (Ephesians 3:20) God wants to lift you above poverty into a bountiful place of supply. He wants to open His eternal treasures to you. God puts you into a position where you are worthy to receive what He has prepared for you.
God wants to move you to a fixed position with Him where you can no longer be moved by any situation. As children of God He wants to lead us to that place where we are also free from sin. (I John 3:1-10)
Listen, it is God speaking to you! He looks past your weaknesses, past your human depravities, even past the faults in your character and personality and wants to lift you into a place of purity and beauty where He tells you: ‘you are lovely, my beloved!’ There is no spot or wrinkle. God blots out all our transgressions in a thick cloud and our sins and iniquities He forgives and forgets. (Isaiah 43:25)
The Lord is gentle and easy to be entreated, without partiality. He helps us to live in the world but overcoming it. We can be master of every labor we have to perform as long as we keep our minds stayed on Him. (Isaiah 26:3) Whatever we do we do to the glory of God. (I Corinthians 10:31) Whatever work you have to do will be easier if you keep your mind stayed on the Word of God. Take a Scripture with you into your day and meditate on it continually and it will strengthen you.
‘I have chosen you I have ordained you, that you should go forth bearing much fruit and that your fruit should remain.’ (Interpretation of tongues)
The God of hope gives us hope for the future: hope of sonship, hope of ministry, hope of transmitting life wherever we go. As we speak His Word it brings life. Jesus says, ‘My Word brings life.’ (John 5:24)
God wants you to live in this world with peace, His peace. The first message the angels brought into the world to announce the birth of the Son of God, was ‘Peace on earth and good will towards men.’ (Luke 2:14) God desires you to be as much at peace as if you were in heaven.
God wants to deliver you of all pain and sickness and rid you of all diseases. He wants you to reign over all demonic powers that attack you. (Luke10:17) God forgives all your sins and do not remember them. (Jeremiah 31:34) On the authority of your believing God’s Word I can bring you into a new place of abundant peace and joy in believing. (Romans 15:13)
God strengthens you and give you mental strength to master evil thoughts. The devil projects thoughts at you and does not know which ones will affect you. But when you discern the work of the devil you can resist it and say, ‘get behind me Satan,’ and he has to leave.
When difficulties and perplexities arise, we need to remember the Lord is greater that the things we face. We have to expect to see the Master’s hand work on our behalf.
Christ was manifested to destroy the works of the devil. (Galatians 5:24) He wants to destroy sinful passions in our flesh and bring carnality to an end. He wants to defeat sin and dethrone sin. Sin shall not reign over you. (Romans 6:14)
Believe that God is bringing you into that place where Christ reigns in you and is manifested in you. It is a place of divine abundance. It is a divine place of sublime faith where you see possibilities of all the promises like Moses overlooking the Promised Land from Mount Pisgah and seeing the large bunches of grapes.
It is the position of a conqueror. This is a place of endowment of power. It is a place of holiness. Christ has become our holiness. (I Corinthians 1:30,31)
Disease will be dethroned, and you will stand as a child of God with power. All things become possible if you dare to believe God’s Word.
