Chronicles of UGGLIC

Time with #Minister Rex

In a deeply revelatory message preached by Minister Rexford Aryee at the 12th February Sunday Service, he shared five vital ingredients that can make our journey with Christ worthwhile viz.:
# Relationships
# Thoughts
# Words
# Willingness to accept the will of God
# Availing yourself to the Holy Spirit

He first touched on our relationships. Reading from Proverbs 13:20, we discovered that the one who walks with wise will become wise but a companion of fools will come to ruin. Psalm 1:1-3 also describes the state of the man who walks not in the counsel of the ungodly nor stands in the way of sinners nor sits in the way of sinners.

People in your sphere of contact are your relationship. He said, “Choose who you relate with wisely.”
Iron sharpens iron. Be careful whom you choose to be your friends.
Citing Biblical examples of relationships which led to destruction and the way of life, we saw that Adam would not have eaten of the fruit of the tree of knowledge of good and evil if Eve had not told him to.
We also understood that Esther would not have had the opportunity to get into the king’s court if she had not listened to her uncle Mordecai.

Minister Rex admonished, “Your relationship can either make you or unmake you!”

Reading from Hebrews 12:2, he helped us to understand that our relationship with God is the most important.

Secondly, the man of God touched on thoughts. He defined thoughts as pictures created by your imagination which either have destructive or constructive ability. Thoughts are a reflection of who you really are (Proverbs 23:7).

Quoting Elder Amos Kevin Annan, Minister Rex said, “Your thoughts become your actions and your actions become your habits and your habits become your lifestyle and your lifestyle leads to your destiny.”
The things within you influence what is without.
In Matthew 5:28, Jesus said that any man who looks at a woman lustfully has already committed adultery in his heart with her. Thus, our thoughts are so powerful that they have the potential to sin.
Remember that your soul drives your spirit.
Philippians 4:8 should guide your thoughts.

Moving on to words, Minister Rex read from Proverbs 18:21 which says that death and life are in the power of the tongue and they that love it shall eat the fruit thereof.

You create your world using your words.
Speak for things to go well for you (see Mark 11:23).
We don’t live by what we see. See through the eyes of God.
Don’t make decisions based on temporary situations.
To heal the sick or raise the dead, speak!
Don’t say anything that does not belong in your future (see Proverbs 6:2).
David had already won the battle over Goliath by his words.
Your words can lift or move mountain; that’s how powerful they are.

When the man of God got to accepting the will of God, he listed seven vital things about the will of God viz.:
The will of God means;
# you cannot have anything you want when you want it.

# you cannot keep everything God gives you.

# you cannot go anywhere you want to go.

# you cannot do anything you want to do.

# you cannot say anything you want to say when you want to say it.

# you cannot have what God has promised you when you want it.

# you cannot marry anyone you want to marry.

Remember, you don’t own yourself. Being saved is not a right; it’s a privilege.
Do what the Lord wants you to do, or say or think.
Seek the Kingdom of God first (Matthew 6:33).
Minister Rex quoted Pastor Benny Hinn saying, “Only when you abandon yourself and totally empty yourself can God fill you.”
Surrender to the Lord.

Finally, the man of God touched on availing yourself to the Holy Spirit. Reading from John 14:16, he hinted that if God didn’t know you’d need the Holy Spirit, He would not have sent Him to you.

Everything is possible when you partner with the Holy Spirit.
Give Him room to work.
Fellowship with the Holy Spirit.

These five will make your journey better!

Gloryyyyyy!!!
