INSIST ON SOMETHING BETTER
We travelled out of base and had to lodge in a hotel. The moment we checked into the hotel, I saw some faults in the room. I told Irewamiri that “This does not look like what we paid for”.
We made some complaints and we managed the first night. The next day, I refused and asked for something better or I get a refund. We got another room- far bigger and better than where we were.
We were both like, “So there was something better and we were settling for less”.
Beloved, if you do not insist on what is better, you will stay on the same spot. Jesus paid for better promises by His blood. You must insist on what has been paid for.
“But now He has obtained a more excellent ministry, inasmuch as He is also Mediator of a better covenant, which was established on better promises” Hebrews 8:6
Look around you- Does everything look like what Jesus has paid for? Does your health look like it? Does your marriage look like it? Does your calling and ministry look like it? Whatever does not look like it is your ignorance at least or the devil at worst trying to play a quick one on you. Refuse substandard. Jesus paid for premium.
How do you insist on it? Abraham is an amazing example.
“He did not waver at the promise of God through unbelief, but was strengthened in faith, giving glory to God, and being fully convinced that what He had promised He was also able to perform Romans 4:20,21
First, hold on to the promise of God as revealed by the Word of God. Reject unbelief.
Second, strengthen your faith by giving God all the glory. Third, rely on the faithfulness and ability of God to do whatever He says He will do.
