Priority One

Nehemiah 10:35 “We promise to bring the first part of every harvest to the Lord’s Temple year after year—whether it be a crop from the soil or from our fruit trees.”

A lot of people are confused about tithing and there is a lot of abuse on tithing. But the truth is, it does not change the fact that tithing is a principle legitimately engraved in the Word of God. I shared with you yesterday that I have been tithing for as long as I can remember. Read the rest of this entry

The Place

Ps.5:1-3 “O Lord, hear me as I pray; pay attention to my groaning. Listen to my cry for help, my King and my God, for I pray to no one but you. Listen to my voice in the morning, Lord. Each morning I bring my requests to you and wait expectantly.”

Prayer is the place of admitting our need. Prayer is the place of adopting humility. Prayer is the place of claiming dependence upon God. Prayer is the practice of God’s presence. Jesus said to His disciples, “when you pray say, Our Father who art in heaven, hallowed be thy name….” Read the rest of this entry

Voices III

2 Sam.2:1 “After this, David asked the Lord, “Should I move back to one of the towns of Judah?” “Yes,” the Lord replied. Then David asked, “Which town should I go to?” “To Hebron,” the Lord answered.”

The voice of God, the voice of parents, the voice of friends, the voice of adversaries, the voice of the Bible, the voice of the flesh, the voice of the devil, and the voice of Prophets. Even though the office of the prophet has been heavily abused and commercialized,  God still speaks through people, through Read the rest of this entry

Christ Alone

Rom.5:18-19 “Yes, Adam’s one sin brings condemnation for everyone, but Christ’s one act of righteousness brings a right relationship with God and new life for everyone. … because one other person obeyed God, many will be made righteous.”

Let me tell you the story of a student and his professor. The student completely displeased with his result, barged into the professor’s office complaining, “I do not deserve to get zero on this course. How can you give me such a grade?” Read the rest of this entry

Forgiveness & Salvation

Psalm 79:9 “Help us, O God of our salvation! Help us for the glory of your name. Save us and forgive our sins for the honour of your name.”

Luke 23:34Jesus said, “Father, forgive them, for they don’t know what they are doing…” These were Jesus’ first Words on the cross of Calvary, and they were the words of forgiveness. Jesus looked at what was being done to Him and said, “Father, forgive them…” Read the rest of this entry

The Journey

Isa. 53:7 “He was oppressed and treated harshly, yet he never said a word. He was led like a lamb to the slaughter. And as a sheep is silent before the shearers, he did not open his mouth.”

Easter is a very emotional time for a lot of Christians. Not because Jesus is suffering. Jesus is alive and well. But because Jesus suffered. I am always extremely honoured when I get the opportunity to share my thoughts at a time as this. Read the rest of this entry

When Light Flows, V

Matt.7:24-25 “Everyone who hears my teaching and applies it to his life can be compared to a wise man who built his house on an unshakable foundation. When the rains fell and the flood came, with fierce winds beating upon his house, it stood firm because of its strong foundation.” (TPT)

You need to take a stand before your light can shine. You need to take a stand before your light can flow. However, taking a stand is not always convenient but you have to take a stand. Note however that, taking a stand must be on Christ and Christ alone. Read the rest of this entry

Unique Light

1 Cor.15:41 “Even among the heavenly bodies, there is a different level of brilliance: the sun shines differently than the moon, the moon differently than the stars, and the stars themselves differ in their brightness.” (Voice).

Do you know that the glory of the moon is a reflection of the glory of the sun? However, the sun cannot do what the moon does. So, to say that the moon is useless is to misunderstand the purpose of creation, of glory, of brightness, and of light. Honestly, parents need to get this. Read the rest of this entry

Unwavering

Heb.10:23Let us hold tightly without wavering to the hope we affirm, for God can be trusted to keep his promise.”

We will kick off today’s devotional with our final thought from yesterday which is, God always always always keeps His Word. God is not like us humans; we do not always keep our word. Sometimes we mean to keep our word, but we do not always get to keep our word. Read the rest of this entry

His Pleasure & Promise

Psalm 16:11 “Because of you, I know the path of life, as I taste the fullness of joy in your presence. At your right side I experience divine pleasures forevermore!” [TPT].

I was in a mentorship session with about forty or so other pastors some time ago with a great man of God in the United States. And he had us introduce ourselves to each other because we did not know each other. Read the rest of this entry
