The God of all Abilities and Enablement, by Pastor Victor Olobaniyi
TEXT :Phil 4 vs 13.
As we know that this is our covenant month of Divine Abilities and Enablement. It may be necessary to be familiar with the words that make up our theme. The term “covenant” is of a Latin origin (con venire), meaning a coming together of two or more parties. In the Bible,it is an agreement between God and His people, in which God makes promises to His people and, usually requires certain conduct from them.
Abilities may be defined as, Skills, talents, expertise, potential,capacity and power to do something.
Enablement simply means Empowerment.
Paul the Apostle in our text said I can do all things through Christ that strengthens me. Phil 4 vs 13. This is a pure confession of faith, as he is confident of whom the Lord is and has never being let down by this God almighty.
In Daniel 11 vs 32, the bible says that they that know their God shall be strong and do exploits, so for you to be divinely enabled, you need to have a relationship with this God of the creation. Also in the book of Isaiah 40 vs 31. The bible records that, they that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength, they shall mount up with wings as eagles, they shall run and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint.
In the scriptures let us consider a few that were divinely enabled and given special abilities to do the uncommon.
Moses was empowered and he was able to bring out the children of Israel from the land of Egypt. Exo 3 vs 10.
Abraham was empowered that the so called childless became father of many nations, through divine ability.
Peter a timid and very fearful person, was empowered that he confronted the elders, preached a sermon and 5,000 souls were converted and added to the church Acts 4vs4.
Paul the Apostle was empowered; his handkerchief and apron was healing the sick Act 19 vs 12.
Jesus Christ when he was on earth, was empowered, that He did all sort of exploits Isaiah 61 vs 1, Luke 4 vs 18.
I pray in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ in this season and henceforth, you are also empowered for breakthrough, to succeed where others are failing, to buy where people are selling, to become rich and wealthy , to live in abundance even in the mist of famine, scarcity and economic downturn like Isaac Gen 26 vs 12., Empowered to be lifted high up where they are shouting there is a casting down Job 22 vs 29.
And your words are empowered to win souls for the kingdom in Jesus mighty name.Go and manifest in this divine abilities and enablement in Jesus wonderful name. (Amen)
