Welcome to the Month of November 2018, the month of Pleasant Surprises. Brethren, when results are visible, they are seen by all. However, it is possible that one may put in so much effort and yet nothing to show for it. The Bible tells us explicitly in Psalm 127:1, that except the Lord build the house that they labour in vain that build it; except the Lord keep the city, the watchman waketh but in vain. It is not every effort that brings results, it takes God for results to follow. The Bible says in 1 Corinthians 3:6, that Paul plants, Apollo waters, God gave the increase. I pray that as you continue to plant and water, that the Lord will grant you visible results from this month in Jesus name.
Simon Peter the Apostle in Luke 5:1-7, toiled all night trying to catch fishes. Despite all his expertise, he caught nothing. After he surrendered his boat to Jesus for his use, Jesus told him to cast his net into the same water that he had fished all night. This time around, the results were so great and visible that they beckoned unto their partners in the other ship to come and join to carry the great catch. As you surrender all to the Lord this month, God will touch your endeavours to bring forth great and visible results such that you will invite others to come and partake of blessings of the blessings of the Lord in your life, in the name of Jesus.
You may have been quietly serving God, supporting the work of God secretly and worshiping God in Spirit and truth, and it appears that there are no results to show for it. Never mind, the results are only being accumulated for you. The word of God says in Matthew 6:4 "...and thy Father which seeth in secret himself shall reward thee openly". Matthew 6:6 also re-echoed it saying "... and thy Father which seeth in secret shall reward thee openly". The Lord shall cause you to experience a great outpouring of results that shall be visible to all, in every area of your expectation in Jesus name.
To receive visible results, it is necessary to listen, hear and carry out the instructions of the Almighty God. In 2 Kings 5:1 -19, there is the story of Naaman, captain of the host of the king of Syria, The Bible described him as a mighty man of valour, 'but' a leper. When the Lord spoke to Naaman through prophet Elisha, to go and wash in the Jordan seven times and he would be healed, Naaman the "great warrior" did not get the type of response that he expected and almost missed the opportunity of receiving his miraculous healing that brought his visible results. Nevertheless, when he obeyed, he was fully healed of leprosy, the 'but' in his life was completely removed and his result was visible to everyone. Irrespective of what may have constituted a 'but' in any area of your life, by reason of that visible results coming your way this month, it shall be wiped away in Jesus name.
Also when Jesus told Simon in Luke 5:4 "Launch out into the deep, and let down your nets for a draught", Simon responded in the next verse saying, "Master, we have toiled all night, and have taken nothing: nevertheless at thy word, I will let down the net" His obedience led to the net breaking success that Simon experienced as a fisherman. As you listen and carry out every instruction of the Lord, you shall receive visible results this month in all spheres of your life in Jesus name.
Our God desires that we should have visible results, Romans 8:19 says that, "... the earnest expectation of the creature waiteth for the manifestation of the sons of God". The wor,d is waiting to see your results. Visible results cannot come without light as there is no visibility in darkness.
Welcome to your Month of Pleasant Surprises.
