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

Just Flow, II

Eze.37:3Eternal One (to Ezekiel): Son of man, do you think these bones can live?

Ezekiel: Eternal Lord, certainly You know the answer better than I do.” (Voice).

Ezekiel is teaching us about an aspect of God through the way He addresses God. Ezekiel knew that God could do anything, but he also knew that God would do what He wants to do. He is God all by Himself. Read the rest of this entry

What God Says

Eze.37:7 “So I did what God told me to do: I prophesied to the bones. As I was speaking, I heard a loud noise—a rattling sound—and all the bones began to come together and form complete skeletons.” (Voice)

I am all for being educated and I think it is a fantastic thing to use our brains. However, when we see some things, we say to ourselves that we are realists, and we have to say things the way they are. Pastor, are you saying we should not say the truth? Read the rest of this entry

Voice It

Psalm 119:149 “Hear my voice in accordance with your love; preserve my life, Lord, according to your laws.” (NIV)

Your voice is indispensable for things to move in your favour. You must know how to deploy your voice in the spiritual. You must know how to use your voice when you pray. Jesus was hungry, He saw a fig tree and wanted to pluck its fruit. Read the rest of this entry

Together

1 Cor.3:8 “The one who plants and the one who waters work together with the same purpose. And both will be rewarded for their own hard work.”

Compassion. Faith. Action. Persistence. Creativity. Our sixth lesson from Mark 2:1-12 is Cooperation. The four friends of the paralyzed man worked together. Luke 5:19 “…they went up on the roof and lowered the man on his mat through the ceiling into the middle of the crowd.” (NCV, emphasis added). Read the rest of this entry
