His Ways

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.”

1 Sam.17:49 And David put his hand in his bag, and took thence a stone, and slang it, and smote the Philistine in his forehead, that the stone sunk into his forehead; and he fell upon his face to the earth.” (KJV, emphasis added). Read the rest of this entry

Positive Progression

Ps.105:19-21 “Until the time came to fulfil his dreams, the Lord tested Joseph’s character. Then Pharaoh sent for him and set him free; the ruler of the nation opened his prison door. Joseph was put in charge of all the king’s household; he became ruler over all the king’s possessions.”

By the grace of God, your turning point has begun; so, expect a turnaround from Darkness to Light. Expect a turning point from the Prison to the Palace. Please read the story of Joseph in Genesis 39 – 45. Read the rest of this entry

Positive Turn

Ex. 17:11-12 “As long as Moses held up his arms, the Israelites won, but when he put his arms down, the Amalekites started winning …Aaron and Hur brought a stone for him to sit on, while they stood beside him and held up his arms, holding them steady until the sun went down.” (GNT)

Beginning today, by the grace of God, you will experience a definite positive turnaround in that specific area and in every area of your life in the Name of Jesus. A turning point is a point in time when something happens [like something is happening now], Read the rest of this entry

His Comfort

John 16:33 “These things I have spoken to you, that in Me you may have peace. In the world you will have tribulation; but be of good cheer, I have overcome the world.” (NKJV]

John 16:2For you will be expelled from the synagogues, and the time is coming when those who kill you will think they are doing a holy service for God.” So, what is it about being expelled from the synagogue and why does it have such a stronghold on the Jews? For us, when we think about it is like someone being expelled or excommunicated from church. Read the rest of this entry

The Way

John 8:4-6Teacher,” they said to Jesus, “this woman was caught in the act of adultery. The law of Moses says to stone her. What do you say?” They were trying to trap him into saying something they could use against him, but Jesus stooped down and wrote in the dust with his finger.”

When Pharisees and teachers of religious law call you, ‘Teacher’, you know you are in trouble. The truth is, they never acknowledged Jesus as a teacher in the first place. We concluded yesterday’s devotional saying that even though these men brought a woman caught in adultery to Jesus, the stones Read the rest of this entry

The People, II

John 7:24 “Look beneath the surface so you can judge correctly.”

In John 7:1-27 [please read], we see seven categories of people. Yesterday, we listed the first three categories; The Clueless, The Puzzled, and The Rulers. The fourth category is The Temple Guards. The temple guards are the ones that carry out the mission of the rulers. Read the rest of this entry

Refocus

Ps.121:1-2 “I will lift up my eyes to the hills [around Jerusalem, to sacred Mount Zion and Mount Moriah]—From whence shall my help come? My help comes from the Lord, Who made heaven and earth.” (AMPC].

We have to be totally unassuming when we are dealing with God. Sometimes, it is a pattern that God has established; the angel stirs the water, the first to get in gets healed. It was God that established it for them, but the man became fixated on it and it became his plan of how his healing would happen. Read the rest of this entry

New Wine

Mark 2:22And no one puts new wine into old wineskins. For the wine would burst the wineskins, and the wine and the skins would both be lost. New wine calls for new wineskins.”

1 Cor.12:7 To each is given the manifestation of the Spirit for the common good.” (NRSV, emphasis added). Yesterday, I shared how we used to take people through a spiritual experience. However, because we recognize that man is spirit, it is possible for people to be spiritually active even before they surrender to Jesus. 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

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
