In Christ Alone
1 Jn.1:10 “If we claim we have not sinned, we are calling God a liar and showing that his word has no place in our hearts.”
Everyone born of a woman is born a sinner, but when you come to Christ your sin is forgiven. Once and for all God saves you from the penalty of sin. God also saves you from the power of sin; while it is once and for all, it is on the level you are in. Read the rest of this entry
See & Do!
Isa.43:19 “For I am about to do something new. See, I have already begun! Do you not see it? I will make a pathway through the wilderness. I will create rivers in the dry wasteland.” (emphasis added).
You can almost hear the pain in God’s voice when He asks, Do you not see it? And this is usually the challenge God has with people most times. What do you see? What does a pathway through the wilderness look like? What will rivers in the dry wasteland be like? Read the rest of this entry
1 Cor.9:26 “So I run with purpose in every step. I am not just shadowboxing.”
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.

His Plan, His People
Neh.2:17-18 “But now I said to them… Jerusalem lies in ruins, and its gates have been destroyed by fire. Let us rebuild the wall of Jerusalem and end this disgrace!” Then I told them about how the gracious hand of God had been on me… They replied at once, “Yes, let’s rebuild the wall…”

His Name Sake
Eze.36: 22 “Therefore, give the people of Israel this message from the Sovereign Lord: I am bringing you back, but not because you deserve it. I am doing it to protect my holy name…” [emphasis added].
We will pick up today’s devotional with our final thought from yesterday which is if there is one thing you must do in your life it is to ensure that people know you with God’s Name. When you are associated with God, God will do certain things for you not because of you, but because of His Name. Read the rest of this entry
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
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
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
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
