Born of God
Updated: Dec 20, 2018
You are born for victory and dominion. Your purpose is to bring God's kingdom on earth as it is in heaven. You can however only achieve that mission if you follow God's will and use His power!
Welcome to your victorious hours as you take your steps of faith towards your Promised Land.
It always take a step of faith to commit God's power to manifest over His promise.
though God had given the city of Jericho to the Children of Israel before they even began to march around its walls (Joshua 6:2, 16), it was when the people of God, by faith, followed the commands of God that the walls of Jericho fell down (Joshua 6:20). The lesson there is that sometimes God's commandment and instructions can sound foolish but they make miracles.
Joshua was wise enough to follow God’s instructions obediently. When the people did finally shout, the walls of Jericho collapsed instantly, offering Israel a cheap victory.
Born to overcome, by faith!
“ For whatever is born of God overcomes the world. And this is the victory that has overcome the world our faith. 1 John5:4.”
If God be for us, who can be against us?
Victory also requires practising God's presence - in Bible study and mediatation, fasting and prayer and in acts of thanksgiving, praise and worship (Psalm 100:4).
It is the impartation you secure in God's presence that empowers you to impact your world.
It is our responsibility to enter His gates with thanksgiving and into His courts with praise.
God dwells in the praises of His people (Psalm 22.3).
While God cannot resist praise, the enemy cannot withstand it.
Paul and Silas used it and the prison chains fell off their bodies (Acts 16:25).
Praise is a spiritual warfare for defeating the enemy for it attracts God's presence.
The Children of Israel used it as they paraded the wall of Jericho and the wall collapsed. (Joshua 6:20; Hebrews 11.30)
It takes the presence of God!
"What, then, shall we say in response to these things? If God is for us,who can be against us? Romans 8:31"
The presence of God makes a man invincible to his oppositions.
God is behind every great manifestation of signs and wonders in the lives of men (Mark 16:20, Acts 10:38, Acts 19:11-12.) We need His presence to enjoy breakthrough. He created the first man- Adam and Eve- in His presence, Eden. When they lost Eden, they entered in to trouble.
It took the saving grace of Jesus Christ to be restored back into God's presence. That is why like Moses, we need to seek God's presence before seeking His glory.
In God's presence is His power and His Glory!

“ The wind bloweth where it listeth, and thou hearest the sound thereof, but canst not tell whence it cometh, and whither it goeth: SO IS EVERY ONE THAT IS BORN OF THE SPIRIT.” – John 3:8”
From the above scripture, we recognize that:
Every child of God is born a wonder to his world – John 3:8
Every child of God is born for signs and for wonders – Isaiah 8:18
The supernatural is the natural realm of those born of God – Isaiah 7:14-15; John. 17:18

But miracles are no accidents; they are the deliberate acts of God in response to the desperate faith of men (Matthew 9:27-29). Only those who take the responsibility to walk in faith can harvest the fruits of faith. Without faith it is impossible to please God (heb.11:6).
God is a God of principle. Success are products of applying principles.
God has given everyman dominion over a purpose in life.
It takes faithto locate your purpose, prepare it and serve it to your generation.
It is the right time to rise up in faith and start creating your own future.
