‘Soaring Faith Devotional’ - DAY 259‘Worship On Earth As It Is In Heaven’ By Pastor JoelJesus said in John 16, when the Holy Spirit comes He will take the things that are His and will show them to us! The promise is, He will show us things to come. The prophet Joel declared, in the last days God would, pour out His Spirit on all flesh, old men will dream dreams, young men will see visions. It is time to believe to see this more and more.Kenneth. E. Hagin said “I often pray in the Spirit, at times for hours. I pray until I hit the ‘realm of revelation’”. In other words, you can tell when you are filled with the Spirit of God to overflowing, because you start seeing things.Ephesians 5 v 18 - 19 “…be filled with the Spirit speaking to one another in psalms, hymns and spiritual songs, singing and making melody in your heart to the Lord”. Live continually flooded and filled with the Holy Ghost! Smith Wigglesworth said: “Anything less then being filled to overflowing is dis-pleasing to God. God would have us move from Faith to Faith, from Glory to Glory and from fullness to overflowing”. We are to be heavy in the spirit!The quickest way to enter God’s presence and be shown revelations untold is; thanksgiving and praise. Psalm 100 v 4 (TPT): “You can pass through his open gates with the password of praise. Come right into His presence with thanksgiving. Come bring your thank offering to Him and affectionately bless His beautiful Name”. Joy-filled praise energises and renews, that is why Paul encouraged those in Philippi to rejoice continually (Philippians 4 v 4).When Jesus taught His disciples, He told them to prayer: “Your Kingdom come, Your will be done, on earth as it is in heaven”. The Lord’s plan for us is that we have times of heaven on earth. The accounts and testimonies I have heard from people who have been to heaven and back, I have noticed they all talk about ‘the worship’. Because, worship is the very thing that pervades the atmosphere of heaven, and the way to have heaven on earth is to do what heaven is doing.What is heaven doing? Heaven is worshipping, so when we worship God on earth, we are stepping into heaven’s flow and His Kingdom comes on earth as it is in heaven! In Ephesians 3, Paul gives us an insight to the family we belong to, “whom the whole family in heaven and earth is named” (Ephesians 3 v 15). We are one family, in different locations. Whether in heaven or earth, He has created us all to worship. God’s plan is for His whole family, in both locations to be in the same worship flow. God answers our prayers but He lives in our praises! Not much comes close to the power of your heart felt spirit filled praise, it gives God’s kingdom an avenue to come on earth as it is in heaven.#Fearless2021 ... See MoreSee Less

‘Soaring Faith Devotional’ - DAY 258‘Pray In The Name of Jesus’ By Pastor JoelIn John 14, 15 and 16, Jesus is telling His disciples that He is going to leave. The disciples are extremely up set about it. But Jesus begins to explain to them, “I am giving you something that is going to be even better then Me being here with you….”The first thing Jesus talks to them about is, the Holy Spirit. John 14 v 16: “I will pray the Father, and he shall give you another Comforter, that he may abide with you for ever”. Jesus explained, the Holy Spirit is just like Him, He is an other Comforter. He told His disciples what to expect, He explained He will be with them forever to help, guide, reveal God’s will and bring to their remembrance all that is needed. Jesus said the Holy Spirit will show them things to come and empower them for life and effective ministry! Jesus was telling them: “….everything that I have been to you, the Holy Spirit will be exactly that and then some”. The difference between Jesus and the Holy Spirit for the disciples was: if Jesus was in Capernaum then they would have to be in Capernaum to be with Him, but where ever they went, there He the Holy Spirit would be forever!Then Jesus explains to His disciples: “….not only am I going to give you another Comforter, but I am going to give you something that is going to be just like Me being there with you”. Notice what Jesus tells them in John 14 v 12: ““Most assuredly, I say to you, he who believes in Me, the works that I do he will do also; and greater works than these he will do, because I go to My Father”. The disciples at this point are thinking “…how in the world are we going to do what You did Jesus and then do greater works”. Watch what Jesus tells them next: John 14 v 13 - 14: “And whatever you ask in My name, that I will do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son. If you ask anything in My name, I will do it”. In other words “you want to know how you’ll do the greater works? Whatever you ask, ask in My Name and I, I, I Jesus will do it”.What Jesus is getting at here is “I will take full responsibility for it. My Name will be exactly what I would be if I was there. My Name will do exactly what I would do if I was there doing it!”. Jesus was basically saying: “I will assume full responsibility for it”. When we ask in the Name of Jesus, we are assigning full responsibility to Jesus to make it happen! Jesus knew the disciples minds were struggling to get their heads around what He had just told them, so notice He tells them again: John 16 v 23: "….whatever you ask the Father in My name He will give you” verse 24 “Until now you have asked nothing in My name. Ask, and you will receive, that your joy may be full”. Do you know what happened this time? The disciples believed Him! Do you know what I pray? That we too would believe Him! The disciples believed Him so strong that they actually starting asking. The first miracle account using the Name of Jesus is recorded in Acts 3. What we see is, the Name of Jesus did exactly what Jesus would have done had He been there! Jesus not long before this account, told them “Anything you ask the Father in My Name, I will do it”. They believed ‘the Name of Jesus’ would do exactly what Jesus would do if Jesus was there!#Fearless2021 ... See MoreSee Less

‘Soaring Faith Devotional’ - DAY 256‘All The Answers To All The Hows: Word and Spirit’ By Pastor JoelNotice how far you have to read in your Holy Bible to see that the Spirit of God is moving on the earth, Genesis 1 v 2. "And the earth was without form, and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters”. and there is no where in the Word that tells us He has stopped moving! Right after we see the Spirit of God moving upon the face of the waters the Bible says “..God said, Let there be….” (Genesis 1 v 3). This whole world got started by the Word and Spirit, this little event called creation happened because of the combination of the Word and the Spirit working together. It wasn’t just the Word, it wasn’t just the Spirit, it was the Word of God and the Spirit of God together.In Luke 1 v 30 the angel said to Mary: “Do not be afraid, Mary, for you have found favour with God”. Verse 31: “And behold, you will conceive in your womb and bring forth a Son, and shall call His name Jesus”. Verse 32: “He will be great, and will be called the Son of the Highest; and the Lord God will give Him the throne of His father David”. Verse 33: “And He will reign over the house of Jacob forever, and of His kingdom there will be no end.”.Mary asks the same question that anyone of us would have asked if we were in her situation, “How! How can this be, since I do not know a man?”. (Luke 1 v 34)Mary had received a Word from God, but now she is asking how on earth is this going to happen? Luke 1 v 35: “…the angel answered saying “The Holy Spirit will come upon you, and the power of the Highest will overshadow you…”.The answer for Mary’s how was; the Word and the Spirit will come upon you. All the answers to all the how’s you may have is, the Holy Spirit will come upon the Word you have received. The same power that moved upon the earth and took the Word of God and caused it to be, is the same power upon you! In summary, this world got started with the Word and the moving of the Spirit. Jesus came into the Earth (through Mary) by a Word and the moving of the Spirit. The Church came on the scene in Acts 1 v 4 - 5, 8 and Acts 2 v 1 - 4, by the Word and the moving of the Spirit. Luke 1 v 37 AMP: “For with God nothing is ever impossible and no Word from God shall be without power or impossible of fulfilment”.It is never Word alone, Jesus said “there is no Word from God that is without the Holy Spirit and power!”. Be encouraged, when you receive a Word from God, you have also received the power in that Word, as well as Holy Spirit’s help. He will take the Word you have been given and will cause it to be! Zechariah 4 v 6: “This is the word of the Lord to Zerubbabel: ‘Not by might nor by power, but by My Spirit,’ Says the Lord of hosts”.#Fearless2021 ... See MoreSee Less

‘Soaring Faith Devotional’ - DAY 257‘The Hidden Revealed’ By Pastor JoelJeremiah 1 v 5 (NLT) “I knew you before I formed you in your mother’s womb. Before you were born I set you apart and appointed you…”. What is it that God gave you as a believer in Jesus Christ that sets you apart? Just because you are not visible right now, doesn't mean your not valuable! What did God placed on the inside of you that causes you to be the head and not the tail?1 Samuel 16 v 13: “…David stood there…..Samuel took the flask of olive oil and the Spirit of the Lord came powerfully upon David from that day on”. It is the anointing within and upon us that sets us apart! David wasn't forgotten, David was hidden for God’s purposes.David was the last on the list, David was overlooked, under valued, marginalised, hidden in a field, but who man rejects God selects! Refuse to feel disqualified because of how people treat you! Refuse any dis-qualifying thought, not to be used, because God is finding the kings amongst the sons, just like David was found by Samuel. Ephesians 2 v 10: “For we are God’s masterpiece. He has created us anew in Christ Jesus, so we can do the good things he planned for us long ago"It is time for the hidden to arise and shine! The story of the ‘feeding of the five thousands’ was five thousand men, their wives and families were not counted. Notice God used a boy who wasn’t even counted, to provide the means for the miracle to feed the counted! God knows how to locate you and use you to reach the multitudes! God is getting ready to do what Paul told the Romans: “…this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory which shall be revealed in us”. Verse 19: “For the earnest expectation of the creation eagerly waits for the revealing of the sons of God” Romans 8 v 18 - 19.God is about to pull the curtain on the gifts and on the treasures that has been inside of you, that He has been building and establishing within over the years. This is that time you have been hidden for, because God had to make sure your character matched your calling. Get ready pull the curtain on the gifts within, God knows how to locate you and use you to reach the multitudes.Declare Psalm 139 v 14 over your life: “I will praise You, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made; Marvellous are Your works, And that my soul knows very well”.#Fearless2021 ...

‘Soaring Faith Devotional’ - DAY 255‘Swift To Hear + Advance’ By Pastor JoelJames 1 v 19: “Wherefore, my beloved brethren, let every man be swift to hear, slow to speak, slow to wrath”. The Greek word for the word ‘slow’ is: ‘bradus’ (brad-ooce) when translated it means: to be dull and slow, it describes someone who struggles to verbalise his words. In other words, James was saying: when it comes to blaming God about tests and temptations, it would be better if you were verbally dull and dumb! Be slow to speak, be very slow when forming your words, it could be a matter of life or death!James also said: “…let every man be swift to hear”. Hearing is a huge part of believing! Faith doesn't just look at facts and say: "Well I might as well give up”. No, faith looks at circumstances that look like defeat and listens to heaven instead!When David fought the Philistines in 2 Samuel 5 v 24, God told David to pull off to the side of the field when he got to the battle field. God told him to get under a grove of mulberry trees, notice “When you hear the sound of rustling, marching in the tops of the mulberry trees, then you shall advance quickly”. When we are swift to hear, then we can be swift to advance. David is looking at an advancing army of Philistines coming right towards him and God says “I do not want you to be focused on what you see, and what looks like defeat. But I want you to hear, and when you hear the sound of the angel chariots marching on the tops of the Mulberry trees, then you move out and I will give you the victory”.Do not go by what you see, go by what you hear from God. Before you advance forward into anything, you need a heard Word from the Lord. You can’t move out and experience victory until you have heard from God! What will cause you to win in your advance is hearing God in advance. 1 Kings 18 v 41: “Then Elijah said to Ahab, “Go up, eat and drink; for there is the sound of abundance of rain”. Right in the middle of watching famine, Prophet Elijah said “I hear something…I am hearing abundance”. If he would have gone by what he was seeing, everything was drying up, it would have stayed that way. Elijah wasn’t moved by what he saw, he said: “I hear something different to that what my eyes are watching, I am hearing something that is a contradiction to what I am seeing…”.That is what faith does and as people of faith, we need to determine within ourselves “we are going to listen to what we hear from God and then we shall advance quickly and experience victory after victory”#Fearless2021 ...
