Topic: You Can Make it – by Pastor Raphael


Text: Genesis 26:12-14

12. Then Isaac sowed in that land, and received in the same year an hundredfold: and the Lord blessed him.
13. And the man waxed great, and went forward, and grew until he became very great:
14. For he had possession of flocks, and possession of herds, and great store of servants: and the Philistines envied him. Genesis 26:12-14

Beloved ‘… With God all things are possible’, says the Bible (Matt. 19:26b). If all things are possible for God to do, all things are possible for His children (cf. Jn. 14:12). Why? God dwells in them and the power of the Holy Spirit is in them. Children of God, go ahead to do everything within God’s purpose and programme for your lives, in the power and strength of God. Moses thought that he would use his human power to deliver the children of Israel from Egyptian slavery, but God showed that it was neither by power, nor by might (Exo. 2). God told him, ‘I will certainly be with you’ (Exo. 3:12a). The presence of God in your life makes it possible for you to succeed. You can succeed in all areas of your life.

You will succeed as long as God is in you. You carry the power of God for success in you. There is no room for failure in your life, when your life is rooted in God of success. God’s ability has been deposited in you from the beginning. You just need to activate His power to succeed. There are gifts of God in you for success. The Word of God says, ‘I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.’ Philippians 4:13

The practical gifts of God in you are tools to make you succeed in life. The level of faith and boldness with which you approach your life, will guarantee your success. Just do away with fear in your life and pursue your life’s purpose with great faith in God. Success is sure. Hallelujah!

Be An Overcomer!


1. I reject failure in my life, in the name of Jesus Christ.
2. Lord, equip me with everything I need for life and godliness, so that I will succeed and be prosperous the way You want it for me.
3. Lord, help our teeming youths to stop pursuing success the wrong way in life – internet fraud, prostitution, money rituals, etc.

I am delivered from the evil of this present world for it is the will of God. Galatians 1:4

“I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.” Philippians 4:13

Isaiah 66
