Cherished

John 14:19 “In just a little while the world will no longer see Me, but you’re going to see Me because I am alive and you’re about to come alive!” (MSG, emphasis added)

Please read Mark 15:21-41. The night before Jesus was crucified, He made a very strange statement; strange considering the context He was in. The disciples were expecting the Messiah as a conquering king that will come and physically liberate the nation of Israel. Read the rest of this entry

Freed

Rom. 3:23-24 “For everyone has sinned; we all fall short of God’s glorious standard. Yet God, in his grace, freely makes us right in his sight. He did this through Christ Jesus when he freed us from the penalty for our sins.” (emphasis added).

Being a Christian is summed up in one word and that word is “Done”. It is because of what Christ has done that we can do what He has called us to do! We stand tall not on the authority of our dos [prayers, giving, serving], but on the authority of the complete work of Jesus on the cross of Cavalry. Read the rest of this entry

Better Life

John 14:19 “Soon I will leave this world and they will see me no longer, but you will see me, because I will live again, and you will come alive too” (TPT, emphasis added).

The week before Easter in the Church calendar is what is known as the passion week. The passion week is the week where we commemorate the suffering of Jesus, the crucifixion, the death, and the resurrection of Jesus. Read the rest of this entry

Only Jesus!

John 10:11 “I am the good shepherd. The good shepherd sacrifices his life for the sheep.”

We often start the New Year with a lot of zest, a lot of energy, and we are fired up. But sometimes, in a few weeks or one month, we have taken some hits and lost bearing. Fear creeps in and we begin to doubt all that we set out to achieve. Most times, what we need is for God to realign us. Read the rest of this entry

Blazing Love

Zec. 2:5 (KJV) “For I, saith the Lord, will be unto her a wall of fire round about, and will be the glory in the midst of her.”

Yesterday, we established that ashes are proof of a negative progression. Wherever you see ashes, greatness was previously pre-destined, but the enemy has done this. Note that, fire only answers to fire. Fire does not answer to grammar. Read the rest of this entry

The Place

Ps. 91:1 & 4 (NKJV) “He who dwells in the secret place of the Most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty… He shall cover you with His feathers, and under His wings you shall take refuge; His truth shall be your shield and buckler.

Regardless of how bad you think you are, or how good you think you are; you will receive help from above today in the Name of Jesus. No one is too bad or too good that God cannot help. No situation is too bad that God cannot save. Read the rest of this entry

With Him

Isa.7:10-12 “Later, the Lord sent this message to King Ahaz: “Ask the Lord your God for a sign of confirmation, Ahaz. Make it as difficult as you want—as high as heaven or as deep as the place of the dead.” But the king refused. “No,” he said, “I will not test the Lord like that.”

 

In yesterday’s devotional, we established the fact that while Ahaz response to God on the surface sounded deeply spiritual. It sounds spiritual but it had no spiritual weight. It sounded pious but was arrant nonsense, crap. When God says, “give me a sign”, Read the rest of this entry

For Everyone

Matt.1:20 “As he considered this, an angel of the Lord appeared to him in a dream. “Joseph, son of David,” the angel said, “do not be afraid to take Mary as your wife. For the child within her was conceived by the Holy Spirit.”

 

Matt.1:21-22And she will have a son, and you are to name him Jesus, for he will save his people from their sins.” All of this occurred to fulfil the Lord’s message through his prophet“. What was the Lord’s message? Read the rest of this entry

Take A Stand

1 Kings 18:21 “Then Elijah stood in front of them and said, “How much longer will you waver, hobbling between two opinions? If the Lord is God, follow him! But if Baal is God, then follow him…”

 

Please read 1 Kings 18:20-40a. Owing to the weakness of Ahab as a king and the witchcraft of Jezebel his wife, the nation of Israel turned from the True and Living God and began to worship Baal. Baal is known as the god of rain Read the rest of this entry

Full Armor

Eph.6:13 “Therefore, put on every piece of God’s armor so you will be able to resist the enemy in the time of evil. Then after the battle you will still be standing firm” (emphasis added).

What keeps you standing and standing firm after the battle is not will power. What makes you and I remain on our feet after each battle is not our strength or our abilities. Read the rest of this entry
