When God Speaks, III

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.”

What should you expect when God speaks to you?

#1: As you are led by God’s Spirit, All Your Needs Will Be Met.

#2. As you are led by God’s Spirit, Your Placement Will Be Strategic.

#3. As you are led by God’s Spirit, You Will Live A Righteous Life.

#4. As you are led by God’s Spirit, Fear Will Be Far Away From You.

#5. As you are led by the Spirit of God, You Will Be Honoured.

#6. As you are led by God’s Spirit, You Will Be Promoted.

#7. As you are led by God’s Spirit, You Secure Your Place In God’s Presence. I pray, in the Name of Jesus, that in God’s presence your place will not be vacant. As His child, you have a place in God’s presence, and my prayer is that your place will not be vacant in the Name of Jesus. Read the rest of this entry

Voices II

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

Ultimate Substitute

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

New Season

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

Take It Back, V

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

Take It Back, II

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

Take It Back, I

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

It Is Time

John 4:10 “Jesus replied, “If you only knew the gift God has for you and who you are speaking to, you would ask me, and I would give you living water.”

How have you been responding to Jesus? The Samaritan woman got the gift God had for her and got to know who she was speaking to because she chose to be vulnerable. It is easy to look at this Samaritan woman and call her different names. But the question remains, Read the rest of this entry

The Price

Mark 15:34 “And at the ninth hour Jesus cried out with a loud voice, saying, “Eloi, Eloi, lama sabachthani?” which is translated, “My God, My God, why have You forsaken Me?” (NKJV)

Jesus’ first Words on the cross were, “Father, forgive them for they do not know what they are doing”. The second Words on the cross were, “I say to you, you will be with me in paradise”. The third Words on the cross were, “woman behold your son”. Read the rest of this entry

When Light Flows, III

Prov. 27:17 “Iron sharpens iron; so a man sharpens the countenance of his friend [to show rage or worthy purpose].” (AMPC)

My light flows and shines when I call things that be not as though they were and my light flows when I am engaged in community. There are things that you want to get, there are levels of light and revelation that you need for life that will only come when you do life with other Christians. Read the rest of this entry
