Use Your Faith

…Verily I say unto you, If ye have faith as a grain of mustard seed, ye shall say unto this mountain, Remove hence to yonder place; and it shall remove; and nothing shall be impossible unto you.  Matthew 17:20

The Word of God is real and true, but that doesn’t mean the experiences of your life will automatically line up with it. You’re the one to make them so. This is the fight of faith the Apostle Paul talked about in 1 Timothy 6:12: “Fight the good fight of faith, lay hold on eternal life, whereunto thou art also called, and hast professed a good profession before many witnesses.”

You’re the one to appropriate all that Christ has accomplished on your behalf in spite of everything your physical senses may otherwise perceive. You’re the one to subdue the circumstances around you, the forces or the symptoms that attack you, and effect the change! There’re those who say, “I believe the Word, but why are things not working out right for me?” It’s like someone who’s hoping that God will set him free someday; that’s not going to work, even though he believes it, because that’s not faith.

“Believing” the Word is not enough; your believing must translate to faith. Faith declares the Word to be real and true NOW, and acts accordingly. The contrary circumstances will not change by themselves, or change because you believe. Romans 10:10 says, “For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness….” Believing sets your heart right with God; it makes your heart acceptable to Him; that’s the reason you know in your heart that God loves and accepts you, but that’ll not change the circumstances of your life. For your situation to change or to maintain a life of continuous progress and triumph, it’s got to be by your faith.

Hebrews 11:1 says “Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.” Faith is calling real that which you’ve hoped for; you count it done now! It’s like the title-deed to a property. You don’t have to be in the property to know it’s yours; faith is the title deed. Take a hold of God’s Word and affirm your healing and health, prosperity, success, and victory in Christ Jesus! The second part of Romans 10:10 says, “…with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.”

Say this to yourself:

My faith is the victory that overcomes the world; nothing is impossible unto me! I live victoriously today because I live in, and by, the Word; I’ve taken hold of my victorious life in Christ Jesus, basking gloriously in health, peace, prosperity, success, and abundance, in Jesus’ Name. Amen.

ReachOut Cameroon 2012

My alarm clock went off on Monday morning. I had deliberately kept the alarm far from my bedside so that I would not slam it off once it buzzes off, I would have to walk a few yards before I could turn it off. The sound was so loud and disturbing that I jumped off the bed and walked hurriedly to the clock. It was 5:30am. By the time I turned off the alarm I was fully awake. I had my talking sessions for about fifteen minutes then dashed into the bathroom. Few minutes after, I was fully dressed in my special costume, a shirt, pants, hat and shoes, all in the Cameroonian national colours. I spent a little more time in front of the mirror doing my face-paint. When I checked the time again, it was a quarter to seven already. Jeez!  I dashed out of my apartment, headed for the church premises.

I got to church a few minutes after seven and by then the church was getting full already. The brethren were praying in tongues. I got in the midst of them, grabbed the hands of the two people on my left and right and started speaking in tongues. After a while, Pastor ended the session with an authoritative prayer and then went on to address us, giving us specific instructions for the day. When he was through, I was already feeling the word in my spirit and I just wanted to dash out and start showing some love.

It was the 21st of May, the Labour Day in Cameroon. I stepped out of the church premises in the company of other Partners of the Rhapsody of Realities. The city of Yaoundé was already awake and despite the fact that it was the Labour Day, everyone stopped to look at us. Many even approached us and inquired whom we are and what we were celebrating.

I was very fulfilled to be in the company of other Partners of the Messenger Angel, not just because of the magnificence of our company but because we gave life on that day. Everyone who received a copy of the Rhapsody of Realities left with joy in his or her heart.

We had the ReachOut Cameroon 2012 at the monument of Cameroon’s reunification, which symbolizes the oneness of Cameroon as a unitary state, promoting the peace, prosperity and patriotism in Cameroon. The sound of drums, vuvuzela and singing filled the air as we preached the gospel and gave out free copies of the ROR.

We also embarked on community development projects as part of our campaign. We gave out fifty-five [55] branded Safety Helmets in Limbe Municipality to commercial bike riders and a council Hospital in Limbe received new branded lockers from us as well. Seventeen thousand, two hundred and eighty-one [17,281] souls were won to Christ because of our campaign.

When I got home in the evening, the excitement in me was so intense I could not even eat. It’s already quarter past one in the morning and I am not even feeling sleepy. I wish every day was a ReachOut Day; we would get salvation to the whole world in a lot quicker time.

P.S: Since then, several Outreaches and fellowships have been birthed; including Kumbo Outreach, Ngaoundere, Mbalmayo, Kribi, and Ebolowa and in other regions because of the impact of ReachOut Cameroon 2012.
