POSITION YOURSELF FOR CELEBRATIONS

TEXT: PSALMS 118:15

Welcome to your season of celebrations. This means that pleasant and joyful events will happen in your life and household that will call for occasions of festivities.

I want to assure you that when the Lord loads you with celebrations, you will forever be grateful to Him all through your lifetime in Jesus’ name.

God is faithful and He is not a man that He should lie, neither is He the son of man that He should repent of His promises concerning your life. He will surely do what He says He will do. So, be assured of your celebrations and always position yourself to receive from Him.

HOW DO YOU POSITION YOURSELF?

  1. BY BEING RIGHTEOUS:

You must be righteous. Psalms 118:15 tells us that celebrations and gladness can only found with the righteous. So, you must be righteous to qualify for the celebrations God has slated for all His children. This righteousness is not the works of the flesh but it is the one you portray by having Jesus as your Lord and Saviour, living in Him, continuing in Him; surrendering all your life to Him and walking in His statutes and love. Do not live in sin this year (Gal. 5:19-21), instead yield your entire life as a servant of righteousness unto holiness (Rom. 6:19). With that, you will be qualified for celebrations.

  1. BY BELIEVING HIS WORD:

You have to believe His word. When God gave a promise to Mary through the mouth of an angel, as impossible as the circumstance appeared, she believed and said, “Be it unto me according to your word” and it was so. A doubtful man can never receive anything from God (James 1:6-8). No matter what you may have gone through in 2014, believe the word of God for a celebration in 2015. God specializes in turning mourning for you, don’t remain in that state but believe His word and your morning will be turned into dancing. Your mourning is turning into dancing and celebrations this year in Jesus name.

  1. BY PRAYING YOUR WAY THROUGH:

You need to pray daily for your celebrations (Matt. 7:7-8). We are expected to ask so that we can receive. Don’t just fold your hands and expect celebrations to fall from the sky simply because the Lord has promised. You need to press on by praying for your celebrations daily. In some cases, you may need to add fasting to get whatever you are asking for.

  1. BY PRAISING GOD AND APPRECIATING HIM:

There is absolute need for you to give God praise and thanks in anticipation of the manifestation of your celebrations. As you do this, God will bless you (Psalms 67:6) and as God blesses you, you must not shy away from testifying of His goodness in your life. It is very important that you testify at each event of celebrations in your life this year and you will be glad you did.
