STAY IN ALIGNMENT!!!

Oct 17, 2021

He is the head of the body, the church, who is the beginning, of the firstborn …Colossians 1:18.

Behold, how good and how pleasant it is for brethren to dwell together in unity! It is like the precious oil upon the head, Running down on the beard,The beard of Aaron, Running down on the edge of his garments…Psalms 133:1-2

The flow of the anointing is only possible while you are in proper alignment.

Every time you step out of the alignment God has ordained for you, problems and trouble start.

The presence of problems doesn’t necessarily mean you are in the wrong place because salvation is not an immunity from problems.

Yes, and all who desire to live godly in Christ Jesus will suffer persecution…2 Timothy 3:12

However, hard times and problems that come when you are in your rightful place will only better you. You will eventually overcome them because there’s grace for you. ( Job 5:23, James1:2-4, Psalms 34:19.)

*Now there was a famine in the land, and Abram went down to Egypt to dwell there, for the famine was severe in the land…Genesis 12:10-20

Abraham left the land of promise because of an apparent famine as a result Pharaoh almost took his wife.

Many have jeopardized their place because of momentary disappointments.

Then the LORD appeared to him and said: “Do not go down to Egypt; live in the land of which I shall tell you…Genesis 26:2

Stay in the land, that issue will not take you out. Do not be driven by the senses.

Read Luke 15:11-32.

When you depart from your place, things can seem to be working for a season but eventually the real pain will show up.

There’s a way that seems right to a man but the end thereof is death…Proverbs 14:12

Ask God to help you return to your senses, swallow your pride, humble yourself and return home.

Return to that place, church, home, country or people that God ordained and connected you to. The place of your favor. You will be well received.

Get back in alignment and God will restore a million times what you lost. ( Lamentations 3:22-23).

Now the serpent was more cunning than any beast of the field which the LORD God had made. And he said to the woman, “Has God indeed said,…?”…Genesis 3:1

Do not listen to strange voices. Anything or anyone that contradicts what God has spoken to you is the devil and he is trying to take you out of your place.

Do not lose your place of favor. God doesn’t bless anyone or anything that is out of its place.

At times things like anger, bitterness,offense, unforgiveness, mean you are out of alignment.

For you have said in your heart: ‘I will ascend into heaven, I will exalt my throne above the stars of God; I will also sit on the mount of the congregation.. Isaiah 14:13

Greed will cause one to get out of their alignment.

Swallow your pride and return to the will of the Father through repentance.

Many believers have run to Moab because they can’t stand that little pain or famine. As a result they have lost their family members.( Ruth 1)

Don’t walk out of your blessing, favour and assignment. Stand and stay in the house, this too shall pass!. ( John 16:33)

And now I urge you to take heart, for there will be no loss of life among you, but only of the ship…Acts 21:44

You are safe amidst a storm as long as you carry the presence of God.

It’s never too late for you to return home. Do not wait for all evil things to happen to you to learn. We all mess up but it’s never too late to return home.

Read Jonah 1

Naomi which means ‘sweet’ returned calling herself  bitter because she had initially left her place.( Ruth 1:20). It’s until she returned that her life got back on track.

When you leave your place you expose yourself to the devil.

Matthew 26:36-40

When you are distressed and extremely sorrowful, pour out your heart to God. When you are in His will, you attract the help of heaven and God will  strengthen you.

Learn to pray until you surrender your will for His.

My house shall be a house of prayer… Matthew 21:13

Do not withdraw yourself from people unless it’s only during your prayer time. After that, return to them.

*STAY BLESSED AND HIGHLY FAVORED, WE LOVE YOU. PASTOR BEN OCHOLA!*
