Word&You Today: 9th March, 2020


If ye abide in me, and my words abide in you, ye shall ask what ye will, and it shall be done unto you. John 15:7 (KJV)

Have you ever prayed and the answer was not there? Your expectation was high, you are committed to God’s assignments the way you have been thought by the preachers. You fast and even do night prayers, may be you have visited different solution Prayer Mountains or services, you are a regular tither and sacrificial giver and there and then nothing happened? I know you have got many of such experience.

I can tell you how it feels to pray and get no response or answer. It is disappointing, frustrating and many questions crosses your mind at intervals. But who is to be blamed for prayer without answer? You or God? The text we have considered today answered that clearly. John 15:7 says “If ye abide in me, and my words abide in you, ye shall ask what ye will, and it shall be done unto you.” That means you can have everything you want if you are guided by this scripture. The fault is not God’s but yours.

Listen to our belief about God and how He is to be accessed are wrong in most cases. Doing the wrong things and we expect to get right result that will be pretty hard. Jesus said “If you abide in me and my words abide in you then when you say what you want you will have – John 15:7. The question will be how do I abide in Him? How will His word abide in me? Until that happens you will keep struggling to have answer to your prayers it does not matter if you have done all the services listed above or not. NO! That was not a requirement for getting things from God in Christ Jesus, NO! This is a bitter truth the religion preachers will never tell you.

The way you abide in him is the same way His word abides in you. It is all about faith in His word. Jesus said the word I speak to you they are life and spirit. And by this same spirit we abide in him and him in us – 1 John 3:24, John 4:23-24. Everything in this kingdom answers to faith, it is called the Spirit of faith – 2 Cor 4:13. By faith we were saved and by faith we can only receive from God only through faith in Christ Jesus. Galatians 5:6, Mark 9:23

We serve a God that has no limit. And we have the same anointing of no limit from Him because as Jesus is; so are we in this world – 1 John 4:17, 1 John 2:27. No witch or devil can limit Him or you because He is the one working things out in you, with you and for you – Philippians 2:13, 4:13. It is only you that can limit yourself from accessing things in God through Christ Jesus. We keep setting boundaries to the manifestation of the grace and power of God in our lives daily because we are not knowledgeable enough about Christ who is the word of God. 1 John 5:7.

His knowledge is what knocks of limits not what we do as services in the kingdom. Yes they have their place of reward which you have no control over. He rewards you as he deems it fit. – For God is not unrighteous to forget your work and labor of love, which ye have shewed toward his name, in that ye have ministered to the saints, and do minister. – Hebrews 6:10.


Stop setting boundaries to yourself in life. Begin to learn the truth, learn about Christ, He is your true image, look, character and victory. Not any other character in the Bible especially from Old Testament. That is where we failed from. Taking the Old Testament characters and obeying them above the words of Jesus Christ. How can you say you want to suffer no witch to live as said by Moses against bless give them food, Bless them do not curse as said by Jesus? See how you are bankruptcy of the truth and the knowledge of Christ. It means Christ is not in you and His word is not abiding in you.

Apostle Paul told the church of Ephesians at a point in time that the reason they are always having problems is not because they are not coming to church regularly or giving or praying etc. He said it is because they have not learned Christ enough – Ephesians 4:20. Until you know Christ too well the problems of life will not identify you to avoid you. Jesus said you will know the truth and the truth will set you free – John 8:32.


I am unlimited. I have the nature of Christ. I succeed with ease. Everything works for my good daily. Every trouble of life must know me to avoid me in Jesus name.


Father Lord in the name of Jesus Christ. I receive the grace and spirit of understanding to learn Christ daily in Jesus name. I pray that my life will daily manifest the image, look, character and victory of Jesus Christ in Jesus; name. Amen.
