    “How God anointed Jesus of Nazareth with the Holy Spirit and with power, who went about doing good and healing all who were oppressed by the devil, for God was with Him” (Acts 10:38 NKJV).

    The word of the Lord for NCC this year is Jeremiah 32:26-27, paraphrased “is there anything too hard for the Lord?” I therefore said in January it is our year of all things possible. Ecclesiastes 7:8 says “The end of a thing is better than its beginning...” so I am believing that this year is going to end on a more powerful note than it started, and since.

    “Shall the throne of iniquity, which devises evil by law, Have fellowship with You?” (Psalms 94:20 NKJV).

    The Christian walk with God can equate to the three sections of the tabernacle in the Bible, namely the Outer Court, Holy Place and Holy of Holies.

    Most professing believers are outer court christians. This is the stage of sin consciousness, falling in and out of sin on a regular basis. It is characterised with endless sacrificial cycle of sinning, repenting, and obtaining forgiveness. They are baby christians, and largely due to ignorance of the word, are more or less under law, striving to keep the commandments, and little or no intimacy with God.

    “It is for freedom that Christ has set us free. Stand firm, then, and do not let yourselves be burdened again by a yoke of slavery” (Galatians 5:1 NIV).

    If you are born again, then Christ has already set you free from sin, sickness and poverty. If you do not know this truth, then the devil will keep you in bondage to these evil through his lies. You will be sinning, because you don’t know you already have power not to sin, and you will be sick and broke because you think that is your lot in life. You are however required according to our text to stand firm, and not allow yourself to be burdened again by any of these yokes that will enslave you.

    “Then Jesus said to the disciples, “Have faith in God. I tell you the truth, you can say to this mountain, ‘May you be lifted up and thrown into the sea,’ and it will happen. But you must really believe it will happen and have no doubt in your heart. I tell you, you can pray for anything, and if you believe that you’ve received it, it will be yours”” (Mark 11:22-24, NLT).

    You can give expression to your faith in two ways: by SAYING IT, and by PRAYING IT. 

    From verse 23, you can say it, which is the same as making a demand. Jesus said in John 14:12-14, “I tell you the truth, anyone who believes in me will do the same works I have done, and even greater works, because I am going to be with the Father. You can ask for anything in my name, and I will do it, so that the Son can bring glory to the Father. Yes, ask me for anything in my name, and I will do it.” Peter demonstrated this with the lame man at the gate called Beautiful in Acts 3:6, “But Peter said, I don’t have any silver or gold for you. But I’ll give you what I have. In the name of Jesus Christ the Nazarene, get up and walk.” The man rose up and walked.
