HELP FROM ABOVE 1

Sermon by Pastor J. A Adesanya

Text: 2Chronicles20:1-4

Topic: SEEKING HELP FROM ABOVE

Scriptures

Psalms 121:1-2 (KJV) I will lift up mine eyes unto the hills, from whence cometh my help.
My help cometh from the LORD, which made heaven and earth.

Psalms 70:1-5 (KJV) Make haste, O God, to deliver me; make haste to help me, O LORD.
Let them be ashamed and confounded that seek after my soul: let them be turned backward, and put to confusion, that desire my hurt.
Let them be turned back for a reward of their shame that say, Aha, aha.
Let all those that seek thee rejoice and be glad in thee: and let such as love thy salvation say continually, Let God be magnified.
But I am poor and needy: make haste unto me, O God: thou art my help and my deliverer; O LORD, make no tarrying.

INTRODUCTION

When we talk about help from above, we are talking of help from ONE whose decision is the FINAL SAY. The maker of heaven and earth, The greater than the greatest.

Strong Points

The most dangerous thing to do is to seek help from other source than THE GOD ALMIGHTY.

SPEAK RIGHT

A soft and gentle and thoughtful answer turns away wrath, But harsh and painful and careless words stir up anger. The tongue of the wise speaks knowledge that is pleasing and acceptable, But the [babbling] mouth of fools spouts folly. The eyes of the Lord are in every place, Watching the evil and the good [in all their endeavors].

DON’T TELL IT AS IT IS

by Kenneth Copeland

“Death and life are in the power of the tongue: and they that love it shall eat the fruit thereof.” Proverbs 18:21

Words are serious business. And, as believers, we need to get serious about learning how to use them. We need to begin to put them to work for us like God Himself does. The Bible tells us that He uses words to “call those things which be not as though they were” (Romans 4:17).

STEP OUT OF THE BOAT

A Devotional

by Kenneth Copeland

“And Peter answered him and said, Lord, if it be thou, bid me come unto thee on the water. And he said, Come. And when Peter was come down out of the ship, he walked on the water….” Matthew 14:28-29

It’s easy to be so afraid of making a mistake that you never get around to stepping out on faith. You can spend all your time wondering, Is this faith? Or is it presumption? What if I exercise my faith for something and find out later I’ve missed God’s will?

Don’t worry. God can handle any mistake you can make. I know because I’ve made plenty of them. When I did, I’d just go to the Lord and He’d tell me, Stay on the Word, son. Together we’ll overcome this thing. And we always did.

LIVE THE LOVE LIFE

A Devotional

by Kenneth Copeland

“But whoso keepeth his word, in him verily is the love of God perfected: hereby know we that we are in him. He that saith he abideth in him ought himself also so to walk, even as he walked.” 1 John 2:5-6

There is nothing―absolutely nothing―that is more important than learning to love. In fact, how accurately you perfect the love walk will determine how much of the perfect will of God you accomplish. That’s because every other spiritual force derives its action from love. For example, the Bible teaches us that faith works by love. And answered prayer is almost an impossibility when a believer steps outside of love and refuses to forgive or is in strife with his brother.

DON’T FORGET THE JOY

A Devotional

by Kenneth Copeland

“Rejoice in the Lord always: and again I say, Rejoice.” Philippians 4:4

Years ago, I decided I was going to walk by the Word of God. I told God that, as far as I was concerned, His Word was final and I’d confess it the rest of my life no matter what. That was the most important decision I’ve ever made.

Not too long after that, I decided that no matter what happened, whether I felt like it or not, I’d walk in love. Because the Bible clearly says “faith worketh by love.” It won’t work any other way.

CURE FOR PROCRASTINATION

WORK YOUR SCHEDULE LIKE SOMEONE’S LIFE DEPENDS ON IT

I used to be an award winning procrastinator. Like I could literary sit back and do nothing while I allowed the important task to sleep till the next day.

And oh, the next day came as always and I still didn’t find the will power to do those tasks, until when the need of such tasks didn’t matter anymore, then I’ll beat myself into self pity and think of how I’m gonna turn out better next time.

And yes the next time did come, not once, not twice; and oh well we know how these vicious circles go…

USE GOD’S MO

by Kenneth Copeland

“Through faith we understand that the worlds were framed by the word of God, so that things which are seen were not made of things which do appear.” Hebrews 11:3

God uses words to create. He used His Word to “frame” the worlds. Just look in the first chapter of Genesis and count how many times you see the phrase, “And God said.” “And God said, Let there be light: and there was light…. And God said, Let there be a firmament…. And God said, Let the waters under the heaven be gathered together…. And God said, Let the earth bring forth…” (verses 3, 6, 9, 11).

TAKE SOME NEW GROUND

A Devotional

by Kenneth Copeland

“Again I say unto you, That if two of you shall agree on earth as touching any thing that they shall ask, it shall be done for them of my Father which is in heaven.” Matthew 18:19

As believers, you and I are part of a conquering army, constantly claiming new ground for the kingdom of God. Right?

Well, yes, that’s the way it should be. But just about the time the army tops the hill and is ready to advance, it seems that Satan pulls out his big gun―division―and scatters believers in every direction.

How can we strike back against the strategy of division? By launching an even more powerful attack of our own. By using one of the most powerful resources given us by the Lord Jesus: the prayer of agreement.

DONT WASTE TIME WANDERING

A Devotional

by Kenneth Copeland

“Wherefore be ye not unwise, but understanding what the will of the Lord is.” Ephesians 5:17

So many believers wring their hands and worry about whether or not they’re praying according to God’s will. “Oh, dear me,” they say, “I certainly can’t expect God to do something for me that’s outside His will.” And they’re absolutely right.

But they don’t need to waste time standing around looking puzzled. They need to grab their Bibles and find out what the will of God is.
