DAILY DEVOTIONAL: REMEMBER JESUS DIED FOR YOU.

TOPIC: REMEMBER JESUS DIED FOR YOU

Memorise: And that he died for all, that they which live should not henceforth live unto themselves, but unto him which died for them, and rose again. 2 Corinthians 5:15 KJV

Read: 2 Corinthians 5:15-17 15 And [that] he died for all, that they which live should not henceforth live unto themselves, but unto him which died for them, and rose again.

16 Wherefore henceforth know we no man after the flesh: yea, though we have known Christ after the flesh, yet now henceforth know we [him] no more. 17 Therefore if any man [be] in Christ, [he is] a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new.


One eternal event you must remember on a daily basis is the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ. This painful death of our dear Lord was actually for your redemption, forgiveness and prosperity. He died so you won’t need to die but live soberly to the glory of His name. He suffered, bled, died and was buried but he resurrected to bring you up to a point where the forces on the earth will have nothing with which they can harm you again. The journey to the cross was a mighty one all because the Lord wanted a channel of deliverance for you especially from the power of sin and iniquity and from the evil forces on the earth.

If there’s anything that can easily sink a man, it’s the venom of sin. May you acknowledge the work of grace that Jesus has done by surrendering your whole life unto Him. Daily as you live, the Lord wants you to breath the consciousness of the work he has done to redeem your soul from hell. You are no longer expected to remain the same if genuinely you have accepted the Lord Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior. You are now a new person. Old things especially your former manners of sin must pass away. God expects you to live a new life of worship, intimacy with Him and become a useful tool in His kingdom. These are signs that you remember how Jesus died for your sake. He wants you to live for him alone. This flesh profits nothing, it’s the Spirit of the Lord that quickens. Come closer to your Savior, run away from everything that this world is positioning to make you forget the love of God. Let your heart be renewed by His word and choose to follow Him the remaining days of your life. It shall be well with you.

Prayer Point: Father, I pray the death and resurrection of your Son Jesus Christ will not be in vain over my life. Help me to remember your love on a daily basis and to live for your own glory.

DAILY DEVOTIONAL: JESUS KIND OF SPIRIT.

DAILY DEVOTIONAL: JESUS KIND OF SPIRIT.

Memorise: But if the Spirit of him that raised up Jesus from the dead dwell in you, he that raised up Christ from the dead shall also quicken your mortal bodies by his Spirit that dwelleth in you. Romans 8:11 KJV

Read: Romans 8:11-14  But if the Spirit of him that raised up Jesus from the dead dwell in you, he that raised up Christ from the dead shall also quicken your mortal bodies by his Spirit that dwelleth in you.  12 Therefore, brethren, we are debtors, not to the flesh, to live after the flesh. 13 For if ye live after the flesh, ye shall die: but if ye through the Spirit do mortify the deeds of the body, ye shall live. 14 For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, they are the sons of God.



Jesus is our perfect example for godly living. You are his image on the earth and truly His ambassador if you will operate by his Spirit in accordance with the word of the Lord. Jesus is your role model and it’s therefore expedient that you pray to have his kind of spirit so as to operate faithfully and without impedance on the earth. His power flows by the force of the Holy Spirit.

The Spirit of the Lord is a quickening Spirit. He can never allow you to remain in your dead position but raise you up to become a force on the earth. That was exactly what happened to Jesus. You must be daily loaded with His word and remain effective in prayers to gain His kind of Spirit. Ezekiel said, And the spirit entered into me when he spake unto me, and set me upon my feet, that I heard him that spake unto me. Ezekiel 2:2 KJV. If you will allow the word of the Lord to get into your system and life, you will gain the power of the Holy Spirit and be equipped to rise above all forms of limitation. The power of the grave couldn’t hold Jesus down because of the quickening force within and around Him. He was raised back to life by the Spirit of the Lord. So shall it be unto you from this moment. The Spirit of the Lord will raise you up a conqueror and put to shame every element of this word that has been positioned to silence grace out of your life. You are rising to stardom from today and it shall be well with you.

Pray with me: Father, please raise me up by your Spirit. Quicken me by your anointing and make me unstoppable in the race of life.

DAILY DEVOTIONAL: ARE YOU ASHAMED OF JESUS?

DAILY DEVOTIONAL: ARE YOU ASHAMED OF JESUS?

 

TOPIC: Ashamed of Jesus?

Memorise: Whosoever therefore shall be ashamed of me and of my words in this adulterous and sinful generation; of him also shall the Son of man be ashamed, when he cometh in the glory of his Father with the holy angels. Mark 8:38 KJV

Read: Mark 8:34-38  34 And when he had called the people [unto him] with his disciples also, he said unto them, Whosoever will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow me. 35 For whosoever will save his life shall lose it; but whosoever shall lose his life for my sake and the gospel’s, the same shall save it. 36 For what shall it profit a man, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul? 37 Or what shall a man give in exchange for his soul? 38 Whosoever therefore shall be ashamed of me and of my words in this adulterous and sinful generation; of him also shall the Son of man be ashamed, when he cometh in the glory of his Father with the holy angels.


Your attitude and response to everything about God will count for you whether on the positive or the negative note. God is mindful of your decision to follow him and he values your dedication to his course on earth. The best you can offer is your life on the altar of worship and intense praise unto God. You must be ready to take your cross and follow Jesus even to the end. Anything contrary to neglecting the world in order to obey Jesus will give you no room in His heavenly kingdom.

Jesus despised the horrible shame of the cross as he approached death to bring you life. He was never ashamed to be beaten and molested by sinners. He was mindful of you. He took your place in death and brought you life eternal by the power of the Most High God. Are you now ashamed to declare your love for him? Isn’t it becoming a burden for you to share his love with others around you? I hope your heart is not after other lesser gods all in the name of fame, riches and affluence? There’s no better life outside Jesus. Your decision to identify with Him here on earth will determine if He will recognize you before God and His Holy angels. Take up your cross beloved, your stay on earth will never be eternal, live a life that will glorify God and shame the devil with all his flashy but fainting goodies. Go for more of God and let Jesus shine to the whole world through you. May you never regret coming to this world in Jesus’ mighty name.

Reflections: Are you wholly on the Lord’s side or you still prefer to identify with this world of sin? Keep your gaze on Jesus and never let him go.

WORD OF EXHORTATION- PASTOR E.A ADEBOYE: IGNORANCE OF PURPOSE RESULTS IN ABUSE

WORD OF EXHORTATION- PASTOR E.A ADEBOYE: IGNORANCE OF PURPOSE RESULTS IN ABUSE

IGNORANCE OF PURPOSE RESULTS IN ABUSE

Many people live and die without achieving the purpose of god for their lives because they do not even know this purpose.

(Hos 4:6 [KJV]) My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge: because thou hast rejected knowledge, I will also reject thee, that thou shalt be no priest to me: seeing thou hast forgotten the law of thy God, I will also forget thy children.

Some people make money and do not know why they have made the money. Some use the money God has given them to marry extra wives and this gives them extra problems.

We do not know the purpose of a cockroach, so we will kill it. We do not know the purpose of ants, so we will kill them.

If you fail tom achieve the purpose of honour for which you were made, three things will happen to you. The first thing is that you will be set aside. The second is that you will be replaced because there is no vacuum in the system of God. The third thing is that because God always has a purpose for everything, He can use an instrument of honour as a vessel unto dishonor. King Saul has the record of the first king ever to become a lunatic. This is an example of what can happen to a vessel of honour that fails to achieve his or her purpose.

DAILY DEVOTIONAL: BY PRAYER AND FASTING.

DAILY DEVOTIONAL: BY PRAYER AND FASTING.

TOPIC: BY FASTING AND PRAYER

 

Memorise: And he said unto them, This kind can come forth by nothing, but by prayer and fasting. Mark 9:29 KJV

Read: Mark 9:28-29 28 And when he was come into the house, his disciples asked him privately, Why could not we cast him out? 29 And he said unto them, This kind can come forth by nothing, but by prayer and fasting.


Jesus emphasized on prayer and fasting towards the delivery of special miracles, signs and wonder especially to those who desire such manifestations of God. You will need to obey this rule and not just talk about it. He expects his followers to exercise themselves through faith towards the realization of many great things. Beloved, except some will tell you lies, if you don’t pray earnestly with fasting and faith in the word of God, there are so many benefits in the kingdom that will elude you. Therefore, laziness in the things of the spirit is one enemy you must conquer as fast as possible.

There’s no magic in God’s kingdom. You must pay the required price to harvest the miraculous. Your faith also must be in place to pray and fast unto God for several great things that must happen to you for good. The refusal of many to seek after God as required of us in the above text is the reason you see them going to seek help from lesser gods and demons. Don’t desire microwave miracles and blessings. The devil is all out to cheaply lure many into false miracles and in turn afflict them with great problems in life. God will make you rich without adding any sorrow. He will heal you without any form of ritual. You will carry your babies with eating evil sacrifices. Don’t give the devil a foothold in your life. Call on God in spirit and in truth, wait patiently for Him and He will attend to your needs. May you not be deceived into false miracles by the enemies in Jesus’ name.

Pray with me: Father, I receive power to pray and be blessed in all ways. No scheme of the devil will succeed over my heart desires in Jesus’ mighty name.

DAILY DEVOTIONAL: LOSING TASTE AND VALUE? YE ARE THE SALT OF THE WORLD

DAILY DEVOTIONAL: LOSING TASTE AND VALUE? YE ARE THE SALT OF THE WORLD

TOPIC: LOSING TASTE AND VALUE?

Memorise: Salt is good: but if the salt have lost his saltness, wherewith will ye season it? Have salt in yourselves, and have peace one with another.
Mark 9:50 KJV

Read: Mark 9:49-50  For every one shall be salted with fire, and every sacrifice shall be salted with salt. 50 Salt [is] good: but if the salt have lost his saltness, wherewith will ye season it? Have salt in yourselves, and have peace one with another.

You have a beautiful life from the Lord. The redemptive power on Jesus has delivered you from the curse of the law so you are free to operate as a kingdom envoy and as a salt on the earth. Beloved, you have been enabled to live a good life. It’s the expectation of God that you will continue in this goodness and remain relevant as an agent of change. I pray you will not lose your place in the hands of God in Jesus name.

God wants the best from you always. He calls you a city set on the hill which cannot be hid. This should be your pride so as to stay on top and to keep in touch with His grace. Any other plan and arrangement to bring you down the scale is as scheme of the devil to make you lose value and taste. The flesh and the lust for earthly things are baits in the hands of the devil to seduce you into sinfulness. You must be careful with the love and drive for money and material possessions so you don’t begin to diminish in value as a child of God. You are the representative of Jesus on the earth therefore, separate from everything and anything that will turn you out a different specie from God’s plan. Keep growing in grace and let God guide your heart into all truths. May you not lose your kingdom value in Jesus’ name.

Pray with me: Father, please keep me from falling and never allow me to lose value and taste in Jesus name.

DAILY DEVOTIONAL: IN THE POTTER’S HAND.

DAILY DEVOTIONAL: IN THE POTTER’S HAND.

TOPIC: IN THE POTTER’S HAND

 

Memorise: O house of Israel, cannot I do with you as this potter? saith the Lord . Behold, as the clay is in the potter’s hand, so are ye in mine hand, O house of Israel.



Read: Jeremiah 18:1-8  1 The word which came to Jeremiah from the LORD, saying, 2 Arise, and go down to the potter’s house, and there I will cause thee to hear my words. 3 Then I went down to the potter’s house, and, behold, he wrought a work on the wheels.  4 And the vessel that he made of clay was marred in the hand of the potter: so he made it again another vessel, as seemed good to the potter to make [it].5 Then the word of the LORD came to me, saying, 6 O house of Israel, cannot I do with you as this potter? saith the LORD. Behold, as the clay [is] in the potter’s hand, so [are] ye in mine hand, O house of Israel. 7 [At what] instant I shall speak concerning a nation, and concerning a kingdom, to pluck up, and to pull down, and to destroy [it]; 8 If that nation, against whom I have pronounced, turn from their evil, I will repent of the evil that I thought to do unto them.

You life is in God’s hand. He’s your Maker and the Owner of your soul. He won’t allow you to be marred into a shapeless entity by the rudiments of this world but through your readiness will make you a better person though you have missed your ways unto victory and success. You have a God who is ready to repair your old wastes and to showcase you a rebranded soul to the nations of the world. So, while your friends and families thinks it’s over with you, the Lord is working out a better you to their widest amazement.

As the clay is the potter’s hand, so are you in the hands of the Lord. The clay will not struggle with the potter. You must stop struggling with your Maker and God. Allow the Lord to work through your destiny. Return to Him for a repair of your broken destiny and wounded heart. He’s the Repairer of destinies. He’s the greatest Potter of all ages. Stop crying all through the night. You have a Father who is more than able to restore joy and peace to your marriage and grant your heart desires. Do you have a broken marriage? The Lord our Potter is willing to bring you back to shape. Is your life and business going down? The Lord will help you going forward. Come unto Him with your burden of pains and heartaches. Surrender your fears unto Him and give your life wholly to Jesus. If you will trust the Lord for solutions, your destiny will be greatly repaired and restored unto God’s glory in Jesus’ mighty name.

Pray with me: Father, you are my Potter. Please arise to remould my destiny to your taste. Heal my wounded and broken spirit and give me your eternal joy and peace in Jesus’ name.

GOD’S GOODNESS OVERFLOWS

GOD’S GOODNESS OVERFLOWS

Who doesn’t want blessings? Who doesn’t want to be successful in life? Who doesn’t want to have complete happiness? Who doesn’t want to have contentment?

It is of people’s nature to answer those questions without hesitation, ‘I want’. We all want to be blessed, successful, happy and content in life. Most of us ask the next follow up question “How?” How can we gain all this things?

As I grew up in a Christian family one of my favorite verse is from Matthew 6:33.  But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.

 

What a beautiful promise it is.

In more than 20 years of existence here on earth I have experienced God’s goodness in my life. Miracles happen and prayers have been answered. But this year 2017 is really a great revelation to me. This year I have been so dependent in the will of God. I have plans of course but still I allow myself to be fully submitted in his will and plans for my life. Here are some of the things I can experience and can testify how great is out God.

  1. To resign or not? To get pregnant or not?
    I have resigned from my regular day job with hesitation and doubts that I will become financially burdened but still I follow what God says to me to stop working so I can bear a child. And guess what after a month I became pregnant!
  2. Financially stable
    God’s faithfulness still continues after I get pregnant. Sales of my husband from his job have gone wild having 5 condominium units sold in a month!!! And consistent sale every month. So overwhelming indeed. I also got a chance to work and earn from home. Doing online business and online jobs I get to add something in my savings account.
  3. Passed the Civil Service Exam
    This is my second try to take the exam and prayed that hopefully I will pass this time because I really wanted to work in a government institution. Blessed beyond measure, God granted the desire of my heart and he allows me to pass the exam!!!

Those are just a few of my experiences this year, being blessed by God beyond measure brings a joyful tears in my eyes. He is really worthy to be praised and He alone can answer all our questions on “How to be blessed, to be successful, and to be happy and content”

I pray and hope all of us was able to accept our Lord Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior and experience this wonderful things in our life here on earth.

 

Blessed day everyone!

DAILY DEVOTIONAL: IT’S FOR YOUR GOOD.

DAILY DEVOTIONAL: IT’S FOR YOUR GOOD.

TOPIC: IT’S FOR YOUR OWN GOOD

Memorise: And the Lord commanded us to do all these statutes, to fear the Lord our God, for our good always, that he might preserve us alive, as it is at this day. Deuteronomy 6:24 KJV

Read: Deuteronomy 6:20-25

Deuteronomy  6:20 And when thy son asketh thee in time to come, saying, What mean the testimonies, and the statutes, and the judgments, which the LORD our God hath commanded you?  6:21 Then thou shalt say unto thy son, We were Pharaoh’s bondmen in Egypt; and the LORD brought us out of Egypt with a mighty hand:  6:22 And the LORD shewed signs and wonders, great and sore, upon Egypt, upon Pharaoh, and upon all his household, before our eyes:  6:23 And he brought us out from thence, that he might bring us in, to give us the land which he sware unto our fathers.  6:24 And the LORD commanded us to do all these statutes, to fear the LORD our God, for our good always, that he might preserve us alive, as it is at this day.  6:25 And it shall be our righteousness, if we observe to do all these commandments before the LORD our God, as he hath commanded us.


Beloved, I want you to consider the word of the Lord in Hebrews 12:9-10: Furthermore we have had fathers of our flesh which corrected us, and we gave them reverence: shall we not much rather be in subjection unto the Father of spirits, and live? For they verily for a few days chastened us after their own pleasure; but he for our profit, that we might be partakers of his holiness. Every counsel of the Lord and the discipline you are receiving is for your profit and good. If you embrace them, you will reap the fruits therein and if you despise the instructions of the Lord, the consequences are better not explained. May you not regret your steps at the end in Jesus name.

God has mapped out your destiny. He concluded everything about you before you were created. There’s no secret about your life before Him. In Jeremiah 1:5, He says, Before I formed thee in the belly I knew thee; and before thou camest forth out of the womb I sanctified thee, and I ordained thee a prophet unto the nations. You don’t need other gods but to hold unto the Almighty who has your life plans in His hand. Ask for grace to obey Him so it can be well with you on the earth. Embrace now, the pains of discipline so as to escape the pains of regret in future. If you love a better life and really want to live long in total prosperity without sorrow, keep the commandments of the Lord and run far away from every earthly enticements to the destructive juices of life. Only God can offer you the best in destiny. Don’t live your life outside his grace and instructions. I know it will be well with you as you make up your mind to follow the path of righteousness without compromise.


Pray with me: Heavenly Father, I ask for the grace to follow your pattern for my life. Don’t allow me to journey into life’s vanity. Keep me away from every act of disobedience in Jesus’ mighty name.
