Psalm 27:8 “My heart has heard you say, “Come and talk with me.” And my heart responds, “Lord, I am coming.”

Our third lesson from Daniel about praying in and through a crisis is, I Let God Speak to Me Before I Speak to Him. And this is huge. I pray through a crisis when I let God speak to me before I speak to Him. We often pray in a hurry. Calm down because everything originates from God, everything. Read the rest of this entry

You Decide

Hebrews 11:26 “He valued suffering in the Messiah’s camp far greater than Egyptian wealth because he was looking ahead, anticipating the payoff.” (MSG).

You cannot change what happens to you, but you can change what you do with your life. People can hurt you, yes, they can. People can harm you, yes, they can. People can scar you, yes, they can. But no one can ruin you except you, not even satan. Read the rest of this entry

Chapter B

Isaiah 55:8-9 “My thoughts are nothing like your thoughts,” says the Lord. “And my ways are far beyond anything you could imagine. For just as the heavens are higher than the earth, so my ways are higher than your ways and my thoughts higher than your thoughts.”

We will pick up today from our final thought of yesterday, which flowed from Hebrews 11:25Moses chose to be mistreated along with the people of God rather than to enjoy the pleasures of sin for a short time.” (NIV, emphasis added). Read the rest of this entry

Refuse It

Hebrews 11:24 “By faith, Moses, when he had grown up, REFUSED to be known as the son of Pharaoh’s daughter.” (NIV, emphasis added).

Only the right choices based on the right values would give you the right future. Moses made four major choices that shaped his life and destiny. And the first choice Moses made was he refused to be defined by others. Moses refused to be known as the son of Pharaoh’s daughter. Read the rest of this entry

The Gap

Ephesians 6:18 “Pray in the Spirit at all times. Pray with all kinds of prayers, and ask for everything you need. To do this you must always be ready. Never give up. Always pray for all of God’s people.” (ERV)

Prayer is a conversation; you speak to God, and you are spoken to by God. So, prayer is not just talking, prayer is also listening, and hearing. But God says always pray in the Spirit, never stop praying, never give up. So, when do we listen, and when will we hear Him? Read the rest of this entry

Secure Step

Isaiah 30:21 “Your ears will hear sweet words behind you: “Go this way. There is your path; this is how you should go” whenever you must decide whether to turn to the right or the left.” (Voice)

The world that we live in is very fragile, just one outbreak of some virus and everybody is wondering what is going to happen. Has the end come? A whole nation can be wiped off with a nuclear weapon. One would think that because of how fragile the world is that humanity will be humble, that man will be humble. Read the rest of this entry

Just Listen!

Romans 12:2 “Don’t be so conformed to culture that you fit into it without thinking. Instead, let God transform you by changing the way you think.” (MSG/NLT)

Yesterday, we established that listening is a language of love, listening validates people, and listening communicates value. You must learn to listen, just listen. For a lot of us, our parents sent us away when we initiated conversations with them. Read the rest of this entry

Pay Attention

James 1:19 “Understand this, my beloved brothers and sisters. Let everyone be quick to hear [be a careful, thoughtful listener], slow to speak [a speaker of carefully chosen words and], slow to anger [patient, reflective, forgiving]” (AMP)

In my walk with God, I have gone through seasons of dryness, seasons where it seems like I am searching for Jesus like Mary and Joseph (Luke 2:41-50). One of my fastest ways of reconnecting is calling up a friend that I know loves Jesus and talking about scriptures. Read the rest of this entry


Psalm 27:8 “When You said, “Seek My face [in prayer, require My presence as your greatest need],” my heart said to You, “Your face, O Lord, I will seek [on the authority of Your word].” (AMP)

We will kick off today’s devotional with our final thought from yesterday which is, the places you are present determine the presence you carry. If you want to carry light, the presence of God which you will carry in the Name of Jesus, you need to spend time with light. Read the rest of this entry

Look & Learn

Philippians 3:13 “…but I focus on this one thing: Forgetting the past and looking forward to what lies ahead.”

The light forward response to guilt is to Learn From The Past, without the past discouraging you from taking hold of your preferred future. One of the biggest things you can do for yourself is to learn from the past. Different people approach the past in different ways. Read the rest of this entry
