The Better Life

John 4:14 (TLB) “But the water I give them,” he said, “becomes a perpetual spring within them, watering them forever with eternal life.”

In yesterday’s devotional, we established that everyone wants to have “the good life” and the good life means different things to different people. However, in the pursuit of the good life, we experience exhaustion; we are tired because it is draining. Read the rest of this entry

Take-Action

Ps.12:6 (TLB & NKJV, emphasis added) “The Lord’s promise is sure. He speaks no careless word; all he says is purest truth… Like silver tried in a furnace of earth, purified seven times.”

The power of prayer is not in our prayers but in His answering. Some people are so confident in their prayers. Have you heard statements like this, “When I pray…”? Who are you? It is good to pray and if you think you pray well, praise God for you. Read the rest of this entry

Insist On It!

John 14:13-14 “You can ask for anything in my name, and I will do it, so that the Son can bring glory to the Father. Yes, ask me for anything in my name, and I will do it!”

 

Can you stand to be blessed? Many of us are afraid to step into what God has for us. Caleb said, Bring-It-On! Bring on the promises of God. Can you stand the backbiting and the wave of jealousy? Josh.14:12 “So give me the hill country that the Lord promised me…” (emphasis added). Caleb stood and demanded that God’s promise to him be fulfilled. You need to stand and demand that God’s promise to you be fulfilled. In Joshua 14, we see that every other tribe of Israel got their portion of land through lot [divine lot]. But Caleb demanded for his own and this is a big deal – huge! What Caleb did is a big deal and I will explain. Read the rest of this entry

Hebron

Joshua 14:12 “So give me the hill country that the Lord promised me…” (emphasis added)

 

You can be as strong as you are at eighty-five as you are at forty, do you receive that promise? Please read Joshua 14:6-12. When God has a promise for you, what will happen to that promise is up to you, you must decide really. God said to Caleb through Moses, “Hebron is yours – take it”. The word Hebron is from the Hebrew word spelled “Chevron” and it is derived from Hebrew words: “chevar “(meaning to unite, to join); “chever” (association), “chaver” (companion). Hebron was previously called Kiriath-arba. Arba is one of the descendants of the Amorites [the giants] and he was a great hero of the descendants of Anak [Joshua 14:15]. Read the rest of this entry

Let go & Let GOD

Isa. 43:18-19 (NIV & Voice) “Forget the former things; do not dwell on the past. Watch closely: I am preparing something new; it’s happening now, even as I speak, and you’re about to see it. I am preparing a way through the desert; Waters will flow where there had been none.”

 

We are grateful to God for the New-Streams that are bursting forth. Paul said to the Galatian Church in Gal.5:7 You were running the race so well. Who has held you back…?”. By God’s grace, we are determined that nothing will hold us back in Jesus Name. However, now that God has helped us identify the things that are capable of blocking the flow of our streams, we must be deliberate about taking them out. The beauty about our God, is that He did not only help us identify the problem, He also gave us the solution so that nothing blocks the flow of our New-Streams. Nothing will hold us back; we will continue to flow well in Jesus Name. Read the rest of this entry

By Blood

Lev.17:11 (NKJV) “For the life of the flesh is in the blood, and I have given it to you upon the altar to make atonement for your souls; for it is the blood that makes atonement for the soul.”

 

When it comes to wrongs, the solution is the Blood of Jesus. The only antidote to your past wrongs and regrets is the Blood of the Lamb. The same way the brass serpent was lifted up [Numbers 21:9], anyone that looks unto Him shall be saved [John 3:14-15]. Jesus is the solution! If you keep carrying the regrets, you are not helping yourself. You need to let go of your wrongs. Sometimes, we need to forgive ourselves. We are willing to forgive other people, but we are tougher on ourselves. Read the rest of this entry

Even If

Luke 17:4 “Even if that person wrongs you seven times a day and each time turns again and asks forgiveness, you must forgive.”

 

Forgiveness is not foolishness. Forgiveness is to choose to let it go. Forgiveness is not for the weak. In fact, if you are not strong, you cannot forgive. It is only the strong that can forgive. Read the rest of this entry

Implications II

Joshua 1:9 “This is my command—be strong and courageous! Do not be afraid or discouraged. For the Lord your God is with you wherever you go.”

God’s promise of New-Streams means we can expect New-Streams of colours and New-Streams of New-Wine. It is important to remember that the New Wine of the Holy Spirit, cannot be put in an old skin of the same way you have been behaving. Read the rest of this entry

Needless Worrying

Isa.40:28 “Have you never heard? Have you never understood? The Lord is the everlasting God, the Creator of all the earth. He never grows weak or weary. No one can measure the depths of his understanding. 29 He gives power to the weak and strength to the powerless.”

 

Anyone that will look Jehovah, the Creator of the heaven and the earth in the face and say, I want to raise my throne like your own is a bastard. Jehovah is your Father and He is the source of all spirits, the God of all flesh. Read the rest of this entry

Action Sequence

Gen.22:16-17 “This is what the Lord says: Because you have obeyed me and have not withheld even your son, your only son, I swear by my own name that I will certainly bless you. I will multiply your descendants beyond number, like the stars in the sky…”

 

If you are going to walk with God, you need to understand this. God will ask you to do things sometimes that will not make sense. All in a bid to make you feel what He is feeling. God will take you through a path that you cannot understand all because you are His friend. Read the rest of this entry
