THE GOOD NEWS BEARER 

"What I tell you in the dark, speak in the daylight; and what is whispered in your ear, proclaim from the housetops." ~ Matthew 10:27

Deborah Toyin Daniel

Deborah "Toyin" Daniel is an Evangelist, a Missionary, and Christian Author. She grew up in a strict religious household but found Christ on her own, when it became clear to her that she had no relationship whatsoever with Him in spite of her strict upbringing, and had no purpose in life.  Deborah surrendered her life to Christ in 1992, but kept running from her calling owing to the severe trials she faced and the cares of the world, until she had a personal encounter with Him in 1999. She steps out of her comfort zone as led to fulfill her calling.  She also speaks openly about her childhood difficulties and the struggles she has had in life, to testify of the mercy of God and His awesome power. For more messages and a heart talk on living a fulfilled life in Christ, get the book, Walk the Winning Walk - free and available to new converts/believers in Christ from Divine Literature International.

MY 'MATTHEW 11:12 (KJV)' TESTIMONY

February 12, 2016

Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places. ~ (Ephesians 6:11-12)

 

Are we dashing in and out of the Lord’s presence?

 

If the devil spends the whole day prowling the earth like a roaring lion in search of who next to devour (1 Peter 5:8), and we spend just 5-10 minutes of the day praying, what do we think? 

 

Some years back, I had a big challenge. I wept and wept, but my tears brought me nothing. The Holy Spirit then gave me a verse in my sleep one night to let me know that I was not serious at all about getting the matter resolved.  He didn’t quote the verse - He just simply said "Matthew 11:12".  I was not good at memorizing Bible verses at the time, so I had to dash to my Bible when I woke up.  "I see," I said, when I read the verse. Then I did the needful. I got my victory the next day, and continually had my needs met. 

 

People and certain versions of the Bible give different interpretations to the verse Matthew 11:12, but the Holy Spirit gives understanding. It means: PRESSING TO FINISH YOUR RACE:  Pressing to resist temptation; pressing to fulfill God’s purpose for your life; pressing to obtain your blessings (spiritual and temporal) as if you would grab them violently. In other words: Doing so with fervent prayer, worship, praise, much zeal, and serious commitment.

 

If you have a friend, family member, associate, business partner, boss, or colleague in Christ who communicates with the Lord very well, you are indeed blessed.  You are blessed, not because you are waiting on them to pray for you, but because you have a good model.  Get close to them.  Begin to watch, and learn from them.  There is nothing wrong with learning from others to your own advantage. As you do that, you will become a prayer warrior as well in no time.

 

If you want to survive the viciously wicked, dangerous, and perverted world that we now live in, you need to pray without ceasing.  A quick five or ten-minute prayer will not do much for you - and this is the truth. Surely, there must be so much going on in your life for you to just breeze in and out of the Lord’s presence in five or ten minutes. Praying without ceasing is often misinterpreted as repeating the same request over and over, or reciting prayer lines for a good amount of time. Wrong (Matthew 6:7-8)!  You want to spend time giving thanks, discussing all things with your Father, seeking for guidance, giving petitions, interceding for others and the Body of Christ.  Remember also, to give the Lord quality Praise and Worship as you spend time with Him. Then testify of what He is doing in your life, as things will certainly begin to take a new turn. 

 

Shalom, good people!
