Get Restless was taught by Rev. Dunamis Okunowo on the 10th of October 2021 at Shouts of Grace Center, Joke Plaza, Beside Trans Amusement Park, Bodija-UI Road, Ibadan.
In his teaching, Rev. Dunamis made mention of the following important points:
God’s word cannot go back to Him, and say, “I cannot do this.”
So shall My word be that goes forth from My mouth; It shall not return to Me void, But it shall accomplish what I please, And it shall prosper in the thing for which I sent it.Isaiah 55:11 (NKJV)
You do not speak against the source of your blessing.
The things of the spirit cannot be logically explained. Sometimes you don’t understand but you just obey.
The word of God is life.
The blessing is tangible; it can be transferred.
But he said, “Your brother came with deceit and has taken away your blessing.”Genesis 27:35 (NKJV)
The blessing is different from miracle.
The force that played out in the life of Jacob was mercy.
As it is written, “Jacob I have loved, but Esau I have hated.” What shall we say then? Is there unrighteousness with God? Certainly not! For He says to Moses, “I will have mercy on whomever I will have mercy, and I will have compassion on whomever I will have compassion.” So then it is not of him who wills, nor of him who runs, but of God who shows mercy.Romans 9:13-16 (NKJV)
It is the LORD that shows mercy.
Thank God for the things you can do (your skills, your oratory power, etc.) but ask for mercy!
There’s something about the mercy of God which you must factor into your life.
So then it is not of him who wills, nor of him who runs, but of God who shows mercy.Romans 9:16 (NKJV)
We are not saying you should not will or that you should not run, but in your ‘willing’ and ‘running,’ remember mercy.
You will be under the yoke until you grow restless.
By your sword you shall live, And you shall serve your brother; And it shall come to pass, when you become restless, That you shall break his yoke from your neck.”Genesis 27:40 (NKJV)
No matter what you have done in the past, there’s the mercy of God. The Holy Spirit brings you to the place of realization, not a place of condemnation.
What distinguished Joseph is found in Gen 39:21.
But the LORD was with Joseph and showed him mercy, and He gave him favor in the sight of the keeper of the prison.Genesis 39:21 (NKJV)
Mercy has to be shown before favour can be given. You have to see a revelation about mercy for favour to rest on you.
