2 Timothy 2:15 “Work hard so God can say to you, “Well done.” Be a good workman, one who does not need to be ashamed when God examines your work…” (LB).
The first Biblical attitude for work metamorphosis is, You Must Work Enthusiastically Wherever You Are Right Now! There are two keys to enthusiasm. So, if you see someone that is not enthusiastic, they lack those two keys. Also, if you find that you are not enthusiastic at work, Read the rest of this entry
Colossians 2:6-7 “Since you have accepted Christ Jesus as Lord, live in union with him. Keep your roots deep in him, build your lives on him, and become stronger in your faith, as you were taught. And be filled with thanksgiving.” (GNT).
Yesterday, we looked at two of the things that can lead to faith becoming weak – Lack of INTEREST and Poor Lifestyle CHOICES. Whenever you change your belief to line up with your behaviour, you short-change your life and your destiny. You are to change, by the power of God, to what God’s ways are.

Rom.8:26 “…by our faith—the Holy Spirit helps us with our daily problems and in our praying. For we don’t even know what we should pray for nor how to pray as we should, but the Holy Spirit prays for us with such feeling that it cannot be expressed in words.” (TLB)
When you pray in tongues you charge yourself up spiritually like a battery. When you pray in tongues you pray from your spirit. When you pray in tongues your prayer is dictated and directed by the Holy Spirit. When you pray in tongues you operate instantly in the spirit realm. Read the rest of this entry
Ezekiel 34:14-15 “Yes, I will give them good pastureland on the high hills of Israel. There they will lie down in pleasant places and feed in the lush pastures of the hills. I myself will tend my sheep and give them a place to lie down in peace, says the Sovereign Lord.”

John 10:4-5, & 27 “After he has gathered his own flock, he walks ahead of them, and they follow him because they know his voice. They won’t follow a stranger; they will run from him because they don’t know his voice… My sheep listen to my voice; I know them, and they follow me.”
We will pick up today’s devotional from where we stopped yesterday. We said that out of the multitude of voices in the world, we will zero in on twelve and we highlighted four yesterday. First is the voice of God. Second is the voice of parents. Read the rest of this entry
Heb.2:10 “God, for whom and through whom everything was made, chose to bring many children into glory. And it was only right that he should make Jesus, through his suffering, a perfect leader, fit to bring them into their salvation.”
So far we have looked at two ways by which point of contact operates and they are; Point Of Contact By Symbols And Tokens and Point Of Contact By Seeds. The third way by which point of contact operates is Point Of Contact By Substitutes. Read the rest of this entry
Isaiah 11:1 “Out of the stump of David’s family will grow a shoot—yes, a new Branch bearing fruit from the old root.”
When you search the Bible for the phrase point of contact, I am not sure you will find it. I have checked the different translations that I could lay my hands on and I did not find it. So why do we do it? It is because everything we do, by God’s grace, is scriptural. Read the rest of this entry
Rom.14:17 “The Kingdom of God is not a matter of what we eat or drink, but of living a life of goodness and peace and JOY in the Holy Spirit.” (emphasis added).
I get my joy back by first admitting I lost it, analyzing the cause, correcting what is wrong, focusing on the good in your life, and spending time with God every day. Next find a way to give back. Find a way to sacrifice, find a way to be a blessing. Read the rest of this entry
Psalm 139:23-24 “Search me, O God, and know my heart; test me and know my anxious thoughts. Point out anything in me that offends you, and lead me along the path of everlasting life.”
After we have admitted that our joy is lost, the next thing we need to do to get our joy back is to analyze the cause. We have to identify the kill joys and we are going to run through a few to get you started. This list is not exhaustive, but it is pretty detailed. Read the rest of this entry
Ps.43:4 “There I will go to the altar of God, to God—the source of all my joy. I will praise you with my harp, O God, my God!”
In yesterday’s devotional, God began to talk to us about the importance of having joy in our lives as His children. Cranky Christians are bad witnesses. So, how do we get our joy back and how do we sustain our joy? Seven things! Are you ready? Read the rest of this entry
