APPRECIATION AND SUPPLICATION (1-3) – Dr. Paul Enenche

ANCHOR SCRIPTURE(S): MATTHEW 6:9; JOHN 6:11; ROMANS 4:17-20

SERVICE OBJECTIVE(S): Seeing the link between thanksgiving and prayer.

THINGS TO NOTE:

  1. Appreciation is a major component of fruitful praying
    Nobody has prayed well until they have thanked and praised well
  2. Appreciation is both the beginning and end of praying (Matt. 6:9, 13)
    Prayer is sandwiched in thanks

THE FOCUS OF APPRECIATION:

  1. Appreciation for His Character of faithfulness (Ps. 92:1-2; 36:5; 89:33-35)
  2. Appreciation for what He did in time past (1Sam. 17:37)
    If there is anything God has done for you before, it is an ingredient of your prayer.

OUTCOME OF APPRECIATION:

  1. When you appreciate His faithfulness, you cause Him to reproduce His acts of faithfulness in your life
  2. Appreciation for His previous action is qualification for His next action (Ps. 103:2)

THINGS TO NOTE:

  1. Appreciation is application for more – Bishop David Oyedepo
  2. Appreciation is the recognition of the Source of all supplies
    THE FOCUS OF APPRECIATION:
  3. Appreciation for His Character of goodness (Ps. 27:13; 136:1-End; Isa. 63:7)
  4. Appreciation for what He is doing now (Ps. 103:2-3; John 6:11-12)
    There may be other things not working yet, appreciate Him for what is working now
    There may be other things not available yet, appreciate Him for what is available now

OUTCOME OF APPRECIATION:

  1. When you appreciate His goodness, you multiply His goodness in your life. (John 6:11-12)
  2. When you appreciate the Source, you connect His resources.
    You never run out of resources if you never run out of appreciation for the Source

THINGS TO NOTE:

  1. Appreciation is an expression of faith in the possibilities of God
    People of faith know how to praise
  2. Appreciation is acceleration of manifestation
    If you want God to do anything fast, thank Him for what he has done and what he is doing now

THE FOCUS OF APPRECIATION:

  1. Appreciation for His promises in the Word (Ps. 56:4,10; 106:12)
    You don’t only praise God, you praise His Word
  2. Appreciation for what He is yet but sure to do (John 11:41)
    No devil can stop you from getting married, having children or fulfilling your days, so start thanking God for all of it
    If you cannot thank God for what He is yet to do, then you are in doubt of what He is yet to do

OUTCOME OF APPRECIATION:

  1. The praise of faith moves God into action for desired outcome (Acts 16:25)
  2. The praise of faith leads to the acceleration of expected manifestations

2ND MESSAGE
ANCHOR SCRIPTURE(S): 3 JOHN 1:2
MESSAGE TOPIC: BREAKING FINANCIAL LIMITATIONS AND EMBARGOES

It is the Will of God for His people to be financially stable
Scarcity and shortage are not the Will of God for His people (3John 2; Ps. 35:27; 1Tim. 6:17)
God is interested in His people enjoying and not enduring life (1Tim. 6:17)

WHAT TO DO TO SEE FINANCIAL LIMITATIONS BROKEN OFF YOUR LIFE:

  1. Understand the position of the Word for your finances (3John 2; Job 36:11; Ps. 35:27; 1Tim. 6:17; 2Cor. 8:9; Rev. 5:12)
    What is revealed to you is what can be released to you (Deut. 29:29)
    God is happy that you are financially successful
  2. Develop faith in God as your Source of all things (Gen. 14:22-23; Phil. 4:19)
    If you are connected to the Source of all things, it doesn’t matter what changes on the earth, your life is intact.
    As long as God is your Source, you never run out of supplies.
    As long as God is your Source, He will compel resources from where you don’t know
    Man can be a channel but God must remain your Source
    Don’t place your faith in your education, connections or effort
    For as long as you look up to men and systems, shame is inevitable. (Ps. 34:5)
    Respect and value people but look up to God
  3. Maintain the vision of supernatural supplies (Gen. 13:14-15; Prov. 21:5; 4:23; Eph. 3:20)
    God can only give what man can see; if it doesn’t cross your mind it cannot cross your life
    Vision will become the magnet of provision
    Think large if you want to live large – think in terms of changing a community, city or nation
    Don’t let your situation affect your vision
    If God puts N1billion in your hands what will you do with it (for God and the Kingdom)? Maintain that vision in your mind
    What goes through your heart determines what God will put in your hands
  4. Walk in the Covenant of supernatural supplies (Gen. 8:22; 2Cor. 9:6-7; Acts 20:35)
    If there is a seed time, there must be a harvest time.
    Your destiny is not tied to what you get but to what you give
    Life remains tight for those who refuse to tithe
    No one is permitted to be a receiver that is not a giver
    The opportunity to give is the opportunity to be raised
    Receiving without giving is dying without knowing
    Tithes, poor/less privileged, freewill offerings, to the priests, Kingdom projects etc.
    You can get things by labour but it is better to get by Divine favour
  5. Walk in financial integrity (Job 1:1-3; Prov. 20:7; 5:12)
    Financial integrity means, what belongs to you belongs to you by right
    If you want God to do what you want Him to do, you must do what He wants you to do.
    Anything that is not your own don’t take it!
    Anything God does not give you will not increase you; if you got it crookedly, it will only reduce you.
    God can give you supernatural supplies but you have to deal on the grounds of integrity

PRAYERS
