Lazarus Arise, and Come Forth!!!

God is doing wonderful things for HIS people; and HE is using his Man of God: Bishop Bobby Wellons, Sr. to bless the Body of Christ is such a major way. We at New Changing Life Deliverance Church are so blessed to be a part of something that God is pleased with. We are not perfect, but we serve a perfect God. A God that revealed special things to us on this passed Sunday concerning our present time. Some of us (God’s Saints) has been facing difficult and hard times; either in mind, body, soul, finances, or family. He sees the tears and hears the cry of HIS people. With that said, those same tears and crying petitions have touched the heart of God unto repentance. Some of these trials and circumstances were chosen by God to bring us to another level; and others derived from pure disobedience. God does not want HIS people to suffer, however, disobedience brings curses that only God can change. Once you jump into obedience, you can eat the good of the land (Deut. 28 KJV).

We received a message that opened up our faith to see that “IT’S TIME TO LIVE!” Signs and wonders are following us with a blessed assurance of eternal miracles. We don’t have to wait until tomorrow to receive what we need and/or want, all we have to do is ASK: ASK< SEEK<KNOCK!!!! God is telling us to pray and believe for what we are requesting from God. Know that whatsoever you ask God for (IN FAITH), that you shall receive. We don’t have to worry, or be so cumbered about everything that’s going on around us, all we have to do is pray, give it to God, and sit at the feet of Jesus (Luke 10:38-42 KJV). Sitting at Jesus’ feet doesn’t mean sitting in an idle place, it means to stay busy for the Lord, seeking what God would have you to do, and obeying his command. As long as we keep Jesus and his requirements first, everything else will be added (Matthew 6:33 KJV). Working for God should not just be a substitute, or Plan B. Working for God is a reasonable service that keeps you wrapped up in HIM, and in HIS safety.

On a personal note, I realize that the busier I get for God, my mind becomes clear from all nonsense, or worries that can profit me nothing but stress. As I sit as Jesus’ feet, I begin to let go of all burdensome activity while ultimately letting go of burdens that are to no avail. I love God, and I choose HIM above all else. My time with HIM becomes a world of love, joy, peace, and freedom. It becomes a world where I am happy to surrender and give myself away to Him and only Him. It’s one on one, face to face time with my heavenly Father, and Lord and Savior; it’s my secret place. The devil doesn’t want us to be in that place, because he knows it’s a place of safety. Remember to find yourself in God; a place of holiness and sweet surrender.

Now, there is a difference between staying busy for yourself versus staying busy for God. Some people are busy doing the world’s work, or things that they “think” God wants them to do; but they haven’t sought God’s approval on the matter. This can cause you to become tired and running on empty in your own mind and thoughts. God’s thoughts are not our thoughts, HIS ways are not our ways. HE can give you direction if you ASK; without the danger of failure, or even a nervous breakdown. Find the ways of God, and you can accomplish anything. Include God in your plans, and HE will definitely include you in HIS plans.

Saints, this is the season where you need to ask God “Lord, whatever you’re doing in this season, please don’t do it without me”. He is blessing in miraculous ways that HIS saints need to be a part of. We don’t want God to pass us by. Jesus performed miracles everywhere he went, and if HE is “passing by”, then a miracle is soon to follow. The woman with the issue of blood reached out and touched Jesus as he passed by. He felt the virtue from HIS body leaving; and it was the virtue of Jesus that gave her the wholeness that she desperately needed. Her faith made her whole. Have you reached out and touched Jesus with your faith? Are you asking, seeking, and knocking for a “RIGHT NOW” miracle? She needed her miracle right then; she couldn’t wait any longer. It was only because of her faith that she received results like never before. Her problem lasted 12 long years, your problem does not have to linger another year. Seek Jesus while he may be found, knock and the door of your miracles shall be opened unto you.

Problems are just for a moment in time. Weeping may endure for a night, but joy cometh in the morning. Trouble don’t last always and God does the testing within this moment of your life in order to build your trust in HIM . This moment of trouble is used to bless you and take you to another level in faith. It’s time for our faith to come together and produce results. While we go through the trials, take time to recognize when it’s time to come out; and RIGHT Now is the acceptable time. It is time for the blessing and eternal miracle to come to fruition. It has been well worth the wait. We as Saints, pressed through the pain, trials, troubles, and just plain ‘ole tests of God; however it’s time to come out of that pain, trial, trouble, and test. “You have been in this place long enough, and your mountain side has been rough; the struggle is over for you”. Arise Lazarus, and come forth!!!
