HOLY GHOST CONGRESS 2017*
*DAY 1- 4th December 2017*
*VICTORY OVER SELF*
*_Daddy Adeboye’s Message_*
Prov 16;32 says
“He that is slow to anger is better than the mighty; and he that ruleth his spirit than he that taketh a city.” KJV
Dearly beloved, one of the most crucial victories is that of victory over self.Overcoming yourself is greater than overcoming a city. When you win the battle over yourself, other battles become easier to face and win.
*A) The 3 Major Enemies are*
(a) Death:This is the last enemy everyone must face (1 Corin 15:26;Hebrews 9:27).
Be happy that Jesus has conquered death for us (1 Cor.15:51-57)
(b)The devil:He goes about seeking whom to devour(1 Pet 5:8),but God’s eyes go to and from to show us mercy(2 Chronicles 16:9)
Also Jesus defeated the devil. So all left for you to do is to rebuke him.
(c) Yourself: Self goes with you everywhere
– self sleeps with you
– self wakes with you and is your biggest ally but God is always for you (Rom 8:31)
All forms of other enemies bow at the name of Jesus as you get aligned with Jesus(John 3:16).
Examples of those who could not control self:
1.Cain:He was a murderer so became a first born vagabond(Genesis 4:1-14)
2.Esau:He couldn’t control his stomach and ended up forfeiting his birthright (Gen.25:29-31)
3.Samson:Despite his great anointing, he fell due to lust and ended up a blind prisoner of his enemies(Judges 16:1-end)
*B) Seven Reasons Why you can be victorious:*
1.Being truly born again(John 1:11-12,1 Jn. 3:8-9)
2.Jesus overcame so you will also(Hebrews 4:14-16;Philippians 4:13)
3.God always provides escape route for His children in temptations (1 Corinthians 10:13).
4.God’s Word is settled, sin shall have no dominion over you(Romans 6:1-14)
5.God’s power keeps you (1 Pet 1:5, Ps.121:4-5)
6.Holy Spirit is our helper (Zech 4:6;Romans 8:26)
7.God loves you dearly (John 3:16;Romans 8:37).
*C) What to do*
1.Rely absolutely on God, arm of flesh will fail.
2.The more you serve God,the more precious you become in His hand
3.Flee from every appearance of evil
