DAILY DEVOTIONAL: REMEMBER JESUS DIED FOR YOU.

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.

By |

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?

By |

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.

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

By |

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.

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.

DAILY DEVOTIONAL: LIKE A THIEF IN THE NIGHT.

DAILY DEVOTIONAL: LIKE A THIEF IN THE NIGHT.

​TOPIC: LIKE A THIEF IN THE NIGHT

Memorise: Therefore be ye also ready: for in such an hour as ye think not the Son of man cometh. Matthew 24:44 KJV



Read: Matthew 24:43-44

Matthew  24:43 But know this, that if the goodman of the house had known in what watch the thief would come, he would have watched, and would not have suffered his house to be broken up.  24:44 Therefore be ye also ready: for in such an hour as ye think not the Son of man cometh.


The coming of our Lord Jesus will be a sudden event and so many will miss that glorious day. May you not miss out of this eternal plan of the Lord in Jesus’ name. At His second appearance in the sky, nothing on earth will matter again. The only point that will make sense is whether you are ready or not. Right from now, search your heart and consider your ways if you are truly ready to go with Jesus when he comes.


What the Almighty God wants from you is continuous preparation for your final rest. This world is full of stress and struggles and the more you run the more you discover you haven’t begun the race. Instead of running towards vanities and elements that won’t last eternally, why don’t you consider a life made ready for Lord. Don’t allow your earthly pursuits to make you lose focus on divine provisions for your soul. As you journey to and fro your daily businesses, I encourage you to think of life after now. It won’t be palatable for those who will not reign with Jesus at the close of this age. Therefore, surrender your life to Jesus if you are not yet born again and begin to walk circumspectly towards the great day of the Lord. Your place in God’s eternal kingdom will not be vacant in Jesus’ name.


Pray with me: Father, don’t allow me to be carried away by my earthly pursuits. Help me to continue this race until you appear to take me home.

DAILY DEVOTIONAL: AVOID THEIR ABOMINATIONS

DAILY DEVOTIONAL: AVOID THEIR ABOMINATIONS



TOPIC: AVOID THEIR ABOMINATIONS

Memorise: When thou art come into the land which the Lord thy God giveth thee, thou shalt not learn to do after the abominations of those nations. Deuteronomy 18:9 KJV


Read: Deuteronomy 18:9-10

Deuteronomy  18:9 When thou art come into the land which the LORD thy God giveth thee, thou shalt not learn to do after the abominations of those nations.  18:10 There shall not be found among you any one that maketh his son or his daughter to pass through the fire, or that useth divination, or an observer of times, or an enchanter, or a witch.

No matter where you go or where you find yourself, please remember that you are a child of God and must you never desire to operate like the people of land. This generation is full of lawlessness and absolute lack of the fear of the Lord. The people of the world cannot be your friend except you want to return an enemy of God. Therefore separate the deal and let it be known that you have been redeemed by the precious blood of Jesus. You are a King’s seed and must be seen with the beauty and honour of the Lord. May you not lose your place in the heart of God in Jesus’ mighty name.

Wherefore come out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the Lord, and touch not the unclean thing ; and I will receive you. 2 Corinthians 6:17 KJV

The Lord will receive you into his kingdom if you will genuinely follow after righteousness and reject the abominations of your generation. The world is not thinking about joining God’s  kingdom and it’s amazing to know that it’s the church that’s always thinking and acting like the world. The kingdom of God is far better and greater in glory compared with the world of sin and unrighteousness. Your desire must be on things above and not again on the wasting resources of the world. Colossians 3:1-2. Set your affections correctly and let God begin to rule your thoughts and decisions. Concentrate on the love of God and reject the seductive elements of worldliness. Treasure your soul by departing from all forms of evil and wicked works. May you not be joined unto the abominable things of this world in Jesus’ name.

Pray with me: Father, lead me by your word. Refrain my feet from lust and worldly affection. Help me to follow you till the end in Jesus’ name.

DAILY DEVOTIONAL: FEAR NOT THE BATTLES.

DAILY DEVOTIONAL: FEAR NOT THE BATTLES.

TOPIC: FEAR NOT THE BATTLES

Memorise: When thou goest out to battle against thine enemies, and seest horses, and chariots, and a people more than thou, be not afraid of them: for the Lord thy God is with thee, which brought thee up out of the land of Egypt. Deuteronomy 20:1 KJV

Read: Deuteronomy 20:1-4  1 When thou goest out to battle against thine enemies, and seest horses, and chariots, [and] a people more than thou, be not afraid of them: for the LORD thy God [is] with thee, which brought thee up out of the land of Egypt. 2 And it shall be, when ye are come nigh unto the battle, that the priest shall approach and speak unto the people, 3 And shall say unto them, Hear, O Israel, ye approach this day unto battle against your enemies: let not your hearts faint, fear not, and do not tremble, neither be ye terrified because of them; 4 For the LORD your God [is] he that goeth with you, to fight for you against your enemies, to save you.


Don’t be afraid to fight in any of the battles of life because you won’t fight solo. The Lord has promised to fight with you in all those battles and to give you total victory. Therefore be ready to put the devil where he belongs. Keeping quiet and sobbing in tears won’t grant you the desired victory. You must be strong and of good courage to possess the land that the Lord has promised you. Every battle confronting your next level shall be scattered and won by the Lord in Jesus name. You will always emerge a victor.

Be prepared to always emerge a winner. The Bible says: For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind. 2 Timothy 1:7. You are expected to be sound, strong and fearless. Your faith in God and the power of His might are enough forces of destruction for the camp of your enemies. Engage them on your knees and go against your foes in prayers and fasting. Send the arrows of God’s word and let the fire of the Lord go before you to consume their weapons round about. Fear will only make you a loser but faith in God will bring you out a winner for life. I encourage you to stay on the Lord’s side and seek His help to overcome every devil rearing his ugly head against your marriage, ministry, business and prosperity. You shall not be defeated in Jesus’ name.

Pray with me : Father, please arise to fight in all the battles of my life. Don’t allow me to be defeated but put all my enemies to open shame.
