Isa 14:14 _”I will ascend above the heights of the clouds…”_
Cruising at the altitude of over 32, 000 feet above sea level, while sitting by the window section of Air Côte d’Ivoire enroute to Lagos, the Holy Spirit ministered to me to look out of the window. I heard the word… “You can live and operate beyond the cloud”
Only airplanes operate beyond the clouds while cars and other mode of transportation operate beneath the cloud.
We can say, to operate beyond the cloud, you must be a high flyer
One major factor that affects our lives from going higher is the CLOUD. Cloud works for us both positively and negatively.
*Low flyers face STORMS. ..High flyers face CLOUDS*
Cloud represents many things:
#What we go through daily.
#Challenges we face daily
#Things that overwhelm us
#Things that control us
#Things that put us under subjection
For the airplane to gain altitude and stability, it must go beyond the cloud. It must operate in the sky to connect to its destination.
There are so many people on the journeys of life who are going through several clouds and they find it difficult to ever settle down and enjoy life.
The Word of God for you right now is that you can go beyond the cloud and fulfill your God-given assignment.
You have taken off on your journey…the strength to break through your cloud is in you to succeed in Jesus name.
Follow me as we continue tomorow on this series.
Join us today in our spirit-filled midweek communion service by 4 pm or 6 pm @Soulwinners church works layout Off Imsu junction Owerri.
Remember: You Are Winning in Life, You Cannot Be Stranded!
*Living and operating Beyond the Cloud #2*
Let’s take look at the CLOUD
Cloud is one of the major confrontations of the airplane. So also, life’s cloud or circumstances are major hindrance to high flyers
In my journeys on mission, I have observed that clouds in the sky come in three dimensions or levels;
– We have *Bright cloud*
– We have *Thick cloud*
– We have *Dark cloud*.
The scriptures attest to this.
– *Bright cloud* is easy to penetrate. It is light.
Zec 10:1 says _”Ask ye of the LORD rain in the time of the latter rain; so the LORD shall make *bright clouds*… “_
Job 37:11 _”Also by watering he wearieth the thick cloud: he scattereth his *bright cloud*’_
*- Thick cloud* is the one that makes the airplane shake vigorously and it sometimes makes some passengers be afraid. it’s like their hearts would jump out of the body
Job 26:8 _”He bindeth up the waters in his *thick clouds;* and the cloud is not rent under them”_
– *Dark cloud* is the one carrying water that drops heavy rain to the earth. It can be destructive if not managed well by an experienced pilot. The dark cloud can block the view of the pilot…but he must rely on the compass for direction
Job 22:13 _” And thou sayest, How doth God know? can he judge through the *dark cloud?*”_
When Elijah prayed in 1 Kings 18:45, heaven was black with clouds and wind, and there was a great rain
One important announcement you will hear from the pilot at this point is: *”Fasten your seat belt, we are going through turbulent weather”*
This is where everyone keeps quiet and just watch and muddle up some prayers.. The best thing the pilot will do is to navigate the plane above the clouds
God made cloud to profit the earth, but same cloud can become turbulent when it is not approached rightly.
Yes…life is full of turbulence …the clouds of confrontation. The facts that you are confronted with clouds shows you are on your journey to the top of your career… You must break through the cloud to succeed in Jesus name.
Are you going through some clouded situations? The power of God will help you to navigate beyond them in Jesus name!
Join us this morning in our Thursday Prophetic and Deliverance Prayer Summit by 9am @Soulwinners Church works layout off Imsu junction Owerri
God has answer for every situation.
*Living and Operating Beyond the Cloud #4*
We saw how the law of Aerodynamics broke the force of gravity. For this to happen, Aerodynamics has to be Superimposed over gravitational force.
If there are spiritual law of gravity pulling you down, You must SUPER IMPOSE the law of God over it.
It is called: *THE LAW OF THE SPIRIT OF LIFE*
_”For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus hath made me free from the law of sin and death”_ Rom 8:2.
In this phrase three things are composed together: law, Spirit, and life. This law is the 4th law that Paul mentions in Romans. In chapter 7, there are three laws:
#the law of God,
#the law in our members, and
#the law of the mind.
The law of the Spirit of life, no doubt, is the law of the *divine life*. By New Birth, we received the divine life into our spirit, and with this highest life, there is the highest law. This law liberates us from the law of sin and death.
The law of sin and death which is of the flesh are the forces that pull us down
Natural or scientific laws, like the law of gravity, or the law of aerodynamics, or Newton’s laws of motion, they are laws that work consistently every time without fail (assuming nothing supernatural intervenes).
The Law of the Spirit is activated by the *law of Faith* (Rom 3:27)
By using the law of faith we can obtain any of the promises of God, and break through barriers.
I pray today…We superimpose the law of the Spirit and speak life over every negative circumstances in Jesus name.
Join us in an of our three services tomorrow 7am, 9am, or 11am @Soulwinners Church works layout off Imsu junction Owerri. There is faith to restore all your losses.
*Living and Operating Beyond the Cloud #5*
Living Beyond the Cloud is the life of High Flyers.
Deut 28:1 says
_”And it shall come to pass, if thou shalt hearken diligently unto the voice of the LORD thy God, to observe and to do all his commandments which I command thee this day, that the LORD thy God will set thee on high above all nations of the earth’_
Verse 13 says:
_”And the LORD shall make thee the head, and not the tail; and thou shalt be above only, and thou shalt not be beneath…”_
It costs much more to remain grounded and remain a low flyer.
I have discovered that struggling takes extra efforts, strain, and stress.
Low flyers stay under cloud and struggle in life. They can’t see farther and go further.
The difference between struggling and success is just one step away.
– To succeed is by choice, not chance.
– If you succeed by chance, you will end up falling again.
– There is no accidental success. Every accidental success ends up having accident.
What you consciously do to achieve greatness will never slip away from your hands.
I live in Cape Town. Traveling from Cape Town to Johannesburg by road takes 18 hours… while flight takes 2 hours.
– Traveling by road – you can waste time spending long hours. It looks cheaper, but cheap things are things that delay our destiny. Most times you miss appointment going by road. You sleep, wake, sleep, wake up until you get very tired before you arrive your destination.
But flight is faster – You enjoy nice meal, meet with inter continental people and professionals. The price difference can be little at times.
Success in life begins with you.
*What You Must Do*
It begins with your decision to be significant. Chose to succeed. Life is a progressive process and your choice matters
God has given us the power of choice (Deut 30:19)
2. *Fight against Ignorance*
Ignorance is a destroyer (Hosea 4:6)
It puts you below ebb in life.
When you don’t know what others know, you’ll be under their control.
Let’s continue tomorow. .. you won’t fail in Jesus name.
Join us this morning in any of our 3 services 7am, 9am, and 11am @Soulwinners Church works layout Owerri.
God has promise us anointing to find that which was lost in this service
