Connections

Isa.5:2&4 “He ploughed the land, cleared its stones, and planted it with the best vines… Then he waited for a harvest of sweet grapes, but the grapes that grew were bitter. What more could I have done… I expected sweet grapes, why did my vineyard give me bitter grapes?

Proverbs 6:6-8 “Take a lesson from the ants, you lazybones. Learn from their ways and become wise! Though they have no prince or governor or ruler to make them work, they labor hard all summer, gathering food for the winter.” And because they are ready for winter, when winter comes, it appears Read the rest of this entry

Two Things

2 Cor. 8:7 “Since you excel in so many ways—in your faith, your gifted speakers, your knowledge, your enthusiasm, and your love from us—I want you to excel also in this gracious act of giving.”

How can my life give thanks to God? By Singing From My Heart, by Thanking God In Prayer, by Telling Others The Good News. Fourthly, by Giving An Offering Back To God. Thanks and giving go together, that is why it is called thanksgiving. Read the rest of this entry

Backing

1 Sam.17:47-48 “And everyone assembled here will know that the Lord rescues his people, but not with sword and spear. This is the Lord’s battle, and he will give you to us!” As Goliath moved closer to attack, David quickly ran out to meet him.”

Do Not Confuse Outrage For Courage. Do Not Rush. The third thing crucial to taking bold steps in life is Audacity! Audacity!! Audacity!!! This is an entire chapter in my book, ‘Winning: gaining and sustaining victory in the battles of life’. Read the rest of this entry

In-Step

1 Samuel 9:24 “…Take a look. This was set aside for you. Eat and enjoy it all because this has been reserved for you until the appointed time… So Saul feasted with Samuel the rest of the day.” (Voice)

Do not rush. If you are an entrepreneur, I am sure you have heard the term first movers advantage. Another research shows that the first movers advantage is a myth. The research states that companies that are improvers, not the originators of the ideas, actually do far better than the Read the rest of this entry

Ask & Believe

Col.3:13-14 “Make allowance for each other’s faults and forgive anyone who offends you. Remember, the Lord forgave you, so you must forgive others. Above all, clothe yourselves with love, which binds us all together in perfect harmony.”

The first thing you need to know about the A. B. C. of taking bold steps in your relationships is A is for Asking. Matt.7:7-8 “Keep on asking, and you will receive what you ask for. Keep on seeking, and you will find. Keep on knocking, and the door will be opened to you. For everyone who asks, receives. Everyone who seeks, finds. And to everyone who knocks, the door will be opened.” Eric Schmidt, the Read the rest of this entry

Alone vs. Lonely

Luke 1:80 “John grew up and became strong in spirit. And he lived in the wilderness until he began his public ministry to Israel.”

We will kick off today’s devotion with our final thought from yesterday which is that the problem of loneliness cannot be solved by another human being. Erroneously, people look on the outside to solve a problem that can only be solved on the inside. Read the rest of this entry

Rise Up

Phil.3:12-13 Not that I have already obtained all this, or have already arrived at my goal, but I press on to take hold of that for which Christ Jesus took hold of me …one thing I do: Forgetting what is behind and straining toward what is ahead” (NIV, emphasis added).

There are barriers to moving from seeing to doing, barriers to taking bold steps, and the first is the barrier of complacency. The second is the barrier of loss or the unwillingness to bear loss. The third barrier is the barrier of pain and the fourth is the barrier of fear – the fear of failure, Read the rest of this entry

In Partnership

Luke 9:16 “Jesus took the five loaves and two fish, looked up toward heaven, and blessed them. Then, breaking the loaves into pieces, he kept giving the bread and fish to the disciples so they could distribute it to the people.” (emphasis added)

To multiply you have to organize, it has to be blessed, and it has to be given away for it to multiply.  The fourth lesson on multiplication is you must collaborate with people if you want to multiply. Jesus kept giving the bread and the fish to His disciples. Jesus could not do it by Himself. Read the rest of this entry

Step One

Luke 9:13 “But Jesus said, “You feed them…” “But we have only five loaves of bread and two fish,” they answered. “Or are you expecting us to go and buy enough food for this whole crowd?” (emphasis added).

This scripture is very personal to me, and I will share why. But first, let me remind you that all you need to fulfil your destiny is with you and in you already, even right now. When God’s Favourite House started, we were just a handful of people passionate for God, fired up with a vision. Read the rest of this entry

Engage

Luke 19:12-13 “He said therefore, A certain nobleman went into a far country to receive for himself a kingdom, and to return. And he called his ten servants, and delivered them ten pounds, and said unto them, Occupy till I come.” (KJV, emphasis added).

Our text over the next few days is from Luke 19:11-13 (KJV), Luke 19:15-26 (NLT), please read. The first thing we are told is that Jesus was near to Jerusalem, meaning Jesus was approaching the cross, the time He would leave His disciples and lay down His life. Read the rest of this entry
