1/20/13 MY DECISION 2

Joshua 24:15…..Choose for yourselves this
day whom you will serve, whether the gods which your fathers served that were
on the other side of the River, or the gods of the Amorites, in whose land you
dwell. But as for me and my house, we will serve the Lord……
I spoke last week
how indecision has held many people down; it has caused many people to go
through the problem the Lord did not create for them. We have to make our
decision this year; we have to make up our mind. When Joshua was going, he said
“choose for yourself whom you are going to serve, either the gods of the other
side, that your fathers served and died there; or the god of the Amorites, in
whose land you dwell. But as for me and my house, we will serve the Lord.” The
reason why God destroyed the Canaanites was because they were serving other
gods. Joshua said “this is the time to serve God because if we serve the gods
they serve; he will cut us off also. God made the children of Israel to
understand that if they do not obey His commandments I say to you; this land
shall vomit you. I gave this land to you because the people occupying it were
corrupt. But if you do the same thing they did; I will not say because Abraham
is your father; I will cause the land to vomit you. ” that is why when God
vomited them; God cannot be blamed for what the children of Israel is going
through right now. The fight in Gaza; there should not be anything, like that,
because the Lord gave them the land; but they did evil in the sight of God and
the land vomited them.

I want you to
understand that the Lord who delivered the children of Israel from servitude;
the same God destroyed them. He killed them in the wilderness because they did
not obey the voice of God; what is your decision this year? We have too much of
our self-interest; the bible said in Matthew 11:28…. “Come to me, all you who
labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.” Men cannot give us rest,
but Jesus said “I will give you rest.” Hebrews 4:8….If Joshua had given them rest;
he would not have prophesized another day to come. But Joshua did not give them
rest; he would not have spoken another to come. It is only God that gives you
rest, and Jesus is ready to give us rest; and we will have rest in Jesus name.

This is a new
year, God said “it is a year of testimonies” it means that there can be no
testimony if the miracle of God has not year been done. We are testifying to
the power of God because He has done his miracles in our life. It means that
the way I am going to look at the things that I need now, is that it has
already been done. You will be a living testimony this year in the name of
Jesus Christ. Let’s talk about what indecision can bring in our lives; some
people are unable to decide for their marriage; some people it is time to
decide for their business, but they will not go for it; they say “they don’t
have money.” They have forgotten in the book of Haggai 2:8&9…….The silver
is mine, and the gold is mine, says the Lord of hosts….. Verse 9 says….The
glory of this latter temple shall be greater than the former….. In the book of
Jeremiah 32:27…..I am the Lord the God of all flesh, is there anything too hard
for Me? Jeremiah 32:17…Ah Lord God! Thou has made heaves and the earth by your
great power and out stretched hand and there is nothing too difficult for
you.  Mark 9:23…..Jesus said “if you can
believe, all things are possible to him that believes.”

Roman 10:11….Who
ever believes in Him shall not be put to shame. Luke 1:37….For with God all
things are possible.  Malachi 3:6…..For I
am the Lord, I do not change; so you are not consumed, O offspring of Jacob. So
He is the same; He does not change. Hebrews 13:8…..Jesus is the same yesterday,
today, and forever. This is the time to make up our mind to decide; God does
not change; He has power over everything. You begin to look at your problem
already done; that is what is called winners
You have marched into 2013, and this is your year of
fruitfulness, and nothing is going to change it in the name of Jesus Christ…….  Whatever God says will surely be done; no
demon can stop the work of God; Satan is a creature; creature can never be
powerful as the creator. No matter how powerful Satan is; because Jesus has
dethroned him, and has cut him off; he is powerless. If Satan was powerful, he
would have allowed Balaam to curse the children of Israel. Numbers 23:20….I
have received a command to bless; he has blessed, and I cannot reverse it.
Irreversible blessing that is what the Lord is giving to you this year, in the
name of Jesus Christ……Your enemies have been defeated already, there is nothing
they can do; they have been destroyed in Jesus name……

Psalm 18:3…..I
will call on the Lord, who is worthy to be praised; so shall I be saved from my
enemies. The word of God made us to understand in Psalm 118:10….All nations
surrounded me, but in the name of the Lord I will destroy them. No matter what
they are, or who they are, you are going to destroy them in the name of Jesus
Christ. They have no power over you and they cannot have power over you. Psalm
63:9…Those who seek my life to destroy it shall go into the lower parts of the
earth. They shall fall by the word; they shall be a portion for the jackals.
And that shall be the portion of your enemies.

We have to make
up our minds this year; do not let people force you to come to the presence of
God. But believe that this is your year. If you serve God, let us see how God
will not do it. Proverbs 16:7…..When a man’s way please the Lord; He makes even
his enemies to be at peace with him. Money can be your enemy today; it will be
at peace with you; reason because your way pleases the Lord. May your way
please the Lord this year in the name of Jesus. People of God I want you to
know that God has power over everything. Micah 7:8…Do not rejoice not over me
my enemies when I fall, I will arise; when I sit in darkness the Lord will be a
light to me. When you fall you will rise again; this year you will rise again
in the name of Jesus. I don’t know if you or your business is going through
financial problem; when you fall you will rise again. It is a year of rising; a
year of lifting; you are going to rise again in the name of Jesus Christ. That
is the kind of attitude I want you to have this year; when they say you have
debt; tell them that even the nation has debt. But you will not go through debt
because the bible had made us to understand that you will lend to many nations,
but you will never borrow. Deuteronomy 28:12-13…..And the Lord will make you
the head and not the tail; you shall be above only and not beneath. You shall
lend to many nation but shall not borrow in the name of Jesus Christ…. 

This year we have
to be upright; we have to make our decisions. Joshua said “as for me and my
house, we will serve the Lord” because I know that God is good. If we refuse to
serve God; whom are we going to serve? Jesus Christ looked onto the apostles
the bible said I John 6:66-69…… Some of His disciples did not walk with him
anymore. In verse 67 He asked the twelve “do you also want to go away? In verse
68 Peter replied “to whom shall we go? You have the word of eternal life. And
we have come to know that you are the Christ, the son of the living God.”  Any one that does not serve God will serve
some element they are greater than. After God is it us because in Psalm
104:4…..He makes his angels spirit and His ministers a flam of fire. Genesis
1:26…..He created us in His own image. All these idols and demons are they
image of God?  We are the express image
of God; He created us in His own likeness He gave us power. Demons have no
power over us. May I say this, that any man. Any woman that is being afflicted
by demonic power; the Lord will deliver you today in the name of Jesus
Christ…….. And whoever is attacking or afflicting you, the fire of God will cut
them off today in the name of Jesus Christ…… My God will consume them with fire,
in the name of Jesus Christ” Our decision is to serve Jesus Christ.


1.       Delays our victory. We may not be able to get our victory
Judges 20: 18-25….When the children of Israel asked God who shall go to the
battle first? God said Judah, but they did not take Judah to go first; and what
happened?  They lost the battle; in verse
20 they were first cut off twenty-two thousand; later in verse 24, eighteen
thousand also was cut off. They lost forty thousand people in two days because
they did not make their decision according to the will to God.

2.       It delays our blessing: Joshua 18:3….Joshua said to the children of Israel “how long
will you neglect to go and possess the land which the Lord God of your fathers
has given you?”

3.       It hinders our progress for the next level: Deuteronomy 2:2-3…..You have skirted
this mountain long enough; turn northward…… This is the time to cross over to
the next level.

4.       It steals our joy and testimony: This is your time of testimony in
Jesus name……..

5.       It keeps us out of the race of the champions: When we are not decided yet; it keeps us out of
the race of the champions. Revelations 12:7……War broke out in heaven; Michael and his angels fought
with the dragon; and the dragon and his angels fought, but they did not
prevail….. Verse 8, neither is there any place for them in heaven; verse 11
said but they overcame by the blood of the lamb and by the word of their
testimony, and they did not love their lives to the death. Whoever wants to
make it this year, will not be afraid of his life; if you do not risk it, you
cannot have it; that is how life is. When you are afraid you will not be able
to get it. Psalms 56:3……Whenever I am afraid, I will trust in you….. We need to
trust in God this year.

6.       It brings a word of regret to people’s life:   Genesis 19:26….The wife of Lot look back
behind him, and she became a pillar of salt…. It was regret for her, saying
“why did I do this.”

7.       It leads people to eternal damnation:  When people are supposed to give their lives
to Jesus they do not; by the time they die they will be regretting, gnashing of
teeth; they will be kept in the blackness of the earth, and it is eternal doom,
and there is no way out. So this year our goal is to work with God; when we
work with the Lord; it said trust and obey for there is no other way to be
happy in Jesus than to trust and obey. We need to work with God today; Enoch
worked with God; Genesis 5:24…..the bible said he was no more…… What of father
Abraham; when God told him move out of this land, he departed; father Abraham
was the best patriarch that obeyed the Lord to the last core.   Genesis 12:4 ….So Abram departed as the Lord
had spoken to him. God said “get out of your family’s house”; Genesis 15:1…I am
your exceedingly great reward; I am your shield… In verse 6.  Abraham believed in the Lord and it was
reckoned to him as righteousness. He obeyed the voice of the Lord. We walk with
God, and Abraham did not regret; he was 99 years old, the Lord told him “walk
before me and be perfect” he was still strong you will be strong in Jesus name

Psalms 92: 14; Even at your old
age you shall still bear fruit… Genesis 24:1….Abraham was old and well advance
in age; and the Lord had blessed Abraham in all things. God blessed Abraham in
everything; he worked with God; he had the secret of God in his hand. Psalm
25:14……The secret of the Lord is with those who fear Him, and He will make them
to have His covenant. Genesis 18:17…..The Lord said “shall I hide from Abraham
what I am doing?” because he worked with God, he has the secret of God. This
year you will have the secret of God. David worked with God; Psalm 89:20; 28, &35…..I have
found My servant David; with My holy oil I have anointed him. In verse 28….My
mercy I will keep for him forever…….. Verse 34……My covenant I will not break,
nor alter the word that has gone out of My lips. In verse 35……Once I have sworn
to David, I will not lie to him. …Praise the name of the Lord……….…..


How To Work with God:

By receiving His word: Acts 2:41; Acts 8:14-15; and John
8:47……God said “whoever is of God hears God’s words; therefore you do not hear
because you are not of God.” Everyone who is of God hears the word of God. You have
to receive the word of God to work with Him.

 Believe the word of God: Acts 16:30-31; Romans 10:9-11;
James 2:19. You have to believe in His Words Mark 11:22……Jesus said “have faith
in God.”…..

Accept His word: James 2:10…..You accept everything,
you cannot over rule His commandment; every commandment must be kept.

Obey the word of God: you have to obey His word. 1 Samuel
15:22… Obedient is better than sacrifice. Joshua 24:24…The whole Israel said
“we will obey the voice of God.” When you obey the voice of God- Deuteronomy
4:30; Matthew 5:29; Hebrews 11:8…..I want you to understand that we have to
obey the voice of the Lord.

Meditate in His word: Psalm 19:15; Psalm 1:1-3; Psalm
5:1; Joshua 1:8; Psalm 16:6 Philippians 4:8……Finally my brethren, whatever
things are true, whatever things are noble, whatever things are just, whatever
things are pure……….You cannot find anything of good report in any other thing
than the word of the Lord. This is where the good report is; it is the word of
God that said you are victorious; it is the word of the Lord that says you are
healed; it the word of God that say you are blessed; Praise the name of the
Lord…… Psalms 1: 1-3….Blessed is the man who walks not in the counsel of the
ungodly, nor stands in the path of the sinners, nor sits in the seat of the
scornful…….. May I prophecy in every person’s life today, you shall prosper in
the name of Jesus…… The word of the Lord will prosper you; you shall prosper in
the things that you are doing; in the name of Jesus Christ… Nothing will stand
against you; nothing will stand against your purpose, nothing will stand
against the plan of God for your life; you shall prosper in the name of Jesus
Christ. You will not fail; you will not be rejected any more; no more
afflictions, intimidation, the power of the Lord will lift you up in the name
of Jesus. Joshua 1:8…..The book of law shall not depart from your mouth, for
you shall meditate on it day and night that you shall observe carefully all
that I have commanded in it, then you shall make your way prosperous……

Keeping His word without

By using the word of God: I want you to use the word of God
in every situation. God wants you to use His words. Luke 5:5….Peter said
“Master we have toiled all night and caught nothing, but at your word, we will
let down the net….” They let down the net and they caught great fish because
they used the word of God. Acts 3:4-7….Look at us, so he gave them the
attention expecting to get something from them; and Peter said to him “we do
not have money to give you” in verse 6…Gold and silver I have none but what I
have, I give you in the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, rise up and walk.
Verse 7 he took him by the right hand and lifted him up; immediately, his feet
and ankles bones received strength. And the man was jumping and leaping praise
the Lord. It happened because someone used the word of God. Use the word of God
against every situation in your life.


Jesus Christ said in Luke 4:4, 8 &12…… “It is written, man shall not
live by bread alone, but by every word that proceeded from the mouth of God.”
in verse 8 Jesus said “get behind me Satan! For it is written, ‘You shall
worship the Lord, and only Him shall you serve.’” In verse 12, Jesus said “it
has been said, ‘thou shall not tempt the Lord your God.’” After that what
happened? Satan left Him; he departed from Him because He used the word of God
against Satan. This year you have to work with God by using His word. Use the
word of God against finances that is disturbing you, against all those evil
powers that are disturbing you. Isaiah 59:19….So shall they fear the name of
the Lord, from the west, and his glory from the rising sun. When the enemy
comes in like a flood, the spirit of the Lord will lift a standard against him.
Use the word of God against every situation and it shall bow down to you, in
the name of Jesus.


Jesus said in Matthew 24:35“Assurely I say unto you, heaven and earth
will pass away but every word that proceeded out of my mouth will by no means
pass away. ” Jeremiah 1:12….For I am ready to perform my word. God is ready to
perform His word in your life. Psalm 102:13……. You will arise and have mercy on
Zion; for the time to favor her, yes, the set time has come. The appointed time
has come for you. Jesus said in John 4:23-24……The hour is coming now is when
the true worshipers will worship God in truth and spirit, for the Lord seeks
such to worship Him. Verse 24…… God is spirit and those who worship Him must
worship in spirit and truth. When you worship God in truth and spirit, you use
the word of God, against everything that is turning against you.
Alleluia……  This year I want to know what
will stand against the word of God in your life; I want to see what will stand
against the word of God in your life. Those who seek the Lord shall not lack of
any good thing. The bible says “those who trust God shall be like mount Zion
which cannot be moved, but abides forever.” Nothing can move me this year;
situation cannot move you this year; witches and wizards cannot move you; your
enemies cannot move you; global economy recession cannot move you; what people
say cannot move you; this is your year, I want you to be bold, take authority,
over everything; every land, every situation and over every power of darkness
that has been invading your life. We are the children of the almighty.


Psalm 82:6….For you are gods, and all of you are the children of the Most
High….. What do they do to the gods? They worship the gods; Satan must worship
you this year, must bow down to you because Ye are gods. Gods over
Satan, gods over principalities and powers; gods over rulers of darkness of
this age. God said to Moses in Exodus 7:1…..See I have made you as God over
Pharaoh….. As Moses was going to Pharaoh, he did not look unto Pharaoh as
somebody anymore; he looked at him as someone that had been under his foot because
God made him as god over Pharaoh. You will become god over all Pharaoh of your
life; over all Goliath of your life. We are not going to look unto the size,
weight, experiences of Goliath, but we are going to look unto Jesus Christ,
that this is my year; and I will work with God. When you work with God, He does
wondrous things in your life.


The bible cannot be edited because God has already edited it; and it is
already perfect. I will stand in the word of God that has no 1st, 2nd
or 3rd edition. The word of the Lord is perfect. Psalm 19:7……The law
of the Lord is perfect, converting the soul; the testimony of the Lord is sure,
making wise the simple. I am ready to be with the word of God; not with the
word of man; man will speak and it will fail, but when God speaks, it comes to
pass. The word of the Lord can never fail, Jesus is the Lord. John 1:1-5 &
14….. In the beginning was the word and the word was with God; and the word was
God and through Him all things were made; and without Him nothing was made that
was made……… Jesus is the word of God…….. 
Psalm 37:25, 34, & 37 …….I have been young, now I am old; yet I have
not seen the righteous forsaken nor his children begging for bread. Verse
34……..Wait on the Lord and keep His way and He shall exalt you to inherit the
land; when the wicked are cut off you shall see it. This year the wicked shall
be cut off; in your life, all those wicked people in your family, they shall be
cut off. All those who are behind or responsible for your predicament, they
shall be cut off this year in the name of Jesus Christ……. When the wicked are
cut off you shall see, because the word of the Lord has said it. In verse 37….
Mark the blameless man, and observe the upright for the future of that man is
peace. Jeremiah 5:14……Because you speak this word, I will make the words from
your lips fire. All these people that are against you, fire shall burn them
this year. We will use the word of God; the word from our mouth shall become fire,
and our enemies shall become wood and fire shall devour them. Those who are
standing against you finances, and purpose, the fire of God will devour them;
in the name of Jesus……..


God says “He is ready.” Exodus 3:10-15…….Come now and am sending you to
Pharaoh, to take my people, the children of Israel from Egypt. And Moses said
“who am I that I should go to Pharaoh and bring the children of Israel from
Egypt.” And God said “I will certainly be with you.” Tell the children of
Israel that I am that I am has sent you…… this is your year of liberty, your year
of freedom. Everyone in bondage I lose you in the name of Jesus…. There is
nothing God loves more than when you are using His word; He knows that you
believe in Him. When the children of Israel did not use His word; God Himself
use His word; Zechariah 4:7….. He said “who are you O great mountain? Before
Zerubbabel you shall become a plain……..” Every mountain before you shall become
a plain in the name of Jesus… When you wake up in the morning and you feel
dizzy and weary just say “why are you cast down O my soul; why are you
disquieted in me.” Hope in God…… Psalm 42:5; Psalm 43:5; continue to praise the
Lord when your soul cannot praise the Lord, you read Psalm 103:1-4….Bless the
Lord, O my soul; and all that is within me, bless his holy name. Bless the Lord
O my soul and forget not all His benefits…. Jesus has delivered you from your
destruction. Say to your soul that it must bless the name of the Lord. The word
of the Lord is perfect; it is good, holy, and great, in the name of Jesus


All those who wage war against the word of God, the word of God got rid
of them. Pharaoh waged war against the word of God in Exodus 5:2…..Pharaoh said,
“Who is that Lord that I should obey…..” When he entered into the pool of
destruction; it was too late for him to change his words. There is no one who
goes against God that the Lord will not go against him. Acts 12:21-24…….Herod,
arrayed himself in royal apparel and gave an oration to people, they were
shouting, “this is the voice of a god and not a man” The bible said  inverse 23 “immediately an angel of the Lord
struck him, and he was eaten by the worms…..” He gave up his ghost because he
did not give glory to God. Verse 24…..The word of God prevailed and grew
mightily. Herod went against God; God went against him. The word of the Lord
killed Herod, Pharaoh, Nebuchadnezzar, Belzelza, Jezebel and all those who went
against the word of God.  Prophet Elijah
said concerning Jezebel “dog will eat her flesh”.  And Jezebel fell down, and as she fell down,
before she gave up her ghost, dogs gathered and ate up her flesh. Every Jezebel
of your life dog will eat them In the name of Jesus….. Because the word of the
Lord has said it in the name of Jesus Christ…. 2 Kings 7:1…..Elisha said “Hear
the word of the Lord. Thus says the Lord “tomorrow about this time a seah of
barley shall be sold for a shekel by the gate of Samaria……. In your house
tomorrow about this time, there shall be a letter of Joy in the name of Jesus.
Tomorrow about this time solution will come concerning what you are praying for
and solution will come for you, I speak in the name of Jesus…….There shall be a
turn around, tomorrow about this time something great will take place, in the
name of Jesus……..


 Use the word of God against
anything. 1 Corinthians 9:27….. I discipline my body and bring it to
subjection, when I have preached to others; I myself should not be
disqualified. You have to use the word of God against you flesh; it must hear
the word of God; it must do the will of God. John 2:17…..And the world is
passing away, with all its lust; but he who does the will of God abides
forever. This year you must do the will of God. James 2:10…..Whoever keeps the
whole commandment and stumbles in one point has stumbled in all. So you have to
keep the word of God, this year you are going to work with God.

We will trust and live
inside His word
: we
are going to live inside the word of God this year. Psalm 26:1….Vindicate me O
Lord because I have walked in the integrity of my heart. Philippians 4:8…. ….Whatever things that are noble; whatever things that are  just, whatever things that are lovely, whatever things that are  pure; whatever things that are of good report, if there is any virtue, and if there is anything praiseworthy meditate on this things. from today meditate on the word of God.


Remain Blessed in the Lord
