Spirit and Life Devotional is a daily publication by Pastor Chinaemerem Ibezim, senior pastor of Able Ministers Chapel, a church based in Calabar, Cross River State. 

Isaiah 59:1 NKJV “Behold, the Lord’s hand is not shortened, That it cannot save; Nor His ear heavy, That it cannot hear.”

You know, people get confused when they’ve done everything they know to do and there’s no positive change in their situations: they pray, fast, sow, believe, serve and confess, yet no change. At that point they begin to think that maybe God doesn’t want to do it for them or that He will do it later.

So, the problem is not of God but ours. One cause of stagnation is that instead of moving forward only, people take steps forward and then do things that make them take steps backwards. May that not be your portion in Jesus name.

But before you say Amen, what’s your attitude like? How do you treat other people? Is there unforgiveness in your heart against someone? What kind of words and thoughts proceed from your heart? Yes, check; is there any thing you do that displeases God? Understand that there’s a relationship between everything.

There’s got to be consistency. Don’t talk faith in prayer and then turn around and gossip; do you understand? Don’t hinder God in any way from helping you. God is a Being and not just a principle or some substance that you can apply when ever you need it: He has His Will, His expectations and His desires.
