GOD IS AN ENABLER BY PASTOR JOSHUA
TEXT: 2kings 13:14-19
GOD IS AN ENABLER
God is an enabler, when God gives us dreams he ensures provisions for the manifestation of the dreams . When God delights in a man, he brings such man in to dominate the promised land. There is no doubt about the promise of God and of God’s interest in man.
Every man alive has a land ahead of him to conquer, like king Jehoash. The king was at a point of being discouraged as the prophet was on the verge of death. The king was lackadaisical because he thought the prophet was only trying to encourage him from losing faith and he struck the ground with little faith. The engagement of God comes from an angle we do not envisage.
HOW TO BE ENABLED OF GOD
1. Never put your trust in man – it’s why the King gave up on his battle when the prophet was about to die. Trusting man erodes the preparation of God for our lives.
2. Don’t ever discount the Lord’s instructions – it is mandatory to do that God or his prophets instruct us to do. We should not be selective about God’s messages , every of Gods word is an inspiration of the Holy Spirit (2Kings 3:16).
3. We must put our faith to action. The king could not get total victory because he acted haphazardly; we must make efforts in faith, because of the enablement of the Holy Spirit. God will not increase any inactivity but exercised faith through works.
There is a land that flows with milk and honey before us(Num 14:3), that God wants to show and bring us into by embracing the love of God. The benefits of redemption finds us when we embrace God’s love, as we prepare for the promised land.
