Compassion, Faith & Action

Acts 3:6-7 “But Peter said, “I don’t have any silver or gold for you. But I’ll give you what I have. In the name of Jesus Christ the Nazarene, get up and walk!”  Then Peter took the lame man by the right hand and helped him up. And as he did, the man’s feet and ankles were instantly healed…”

Yesterday, we looked at our first lesson, compassion, from the four friends in the story in Mark 2:1-12 [please read]. 1 Cor. 10:24 “People should be concerned about others and not just about themselves.” (GW, emphasis added). Read the rest of this entry

In Preparation

Hab. 2:1 “I will take my place at the watchtower. I will stand at my post and watch. I will watch and see what He says to me. I need to think about how I should respond to Him when He gets back to me with His answer.” (Voice)

Thank God for His kindness over us and it is our prayer that God will breathe upon us and change our lives even as He speaks His Word to us. I want to start by celebrating you for hanging in there with God and trusting God all through, regardless of how this year has been so far. 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

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

Humble Your Heart

James 4:10 “Humble yourselves in the Lord’s presence. Then he will give you a high position, and he will make you great.” [GW & ERV]

I humble myself because God resists the proud. I humble myself because God gives grace to the humble. Humble yourself because it is the key to your lifting. Humble yourself because it is the key to your promotion. Read the rest of this entry

Provoked Turn

1 Kings 17:13 “But Elijah said to her, “Don’t be afraid! Go ahead and do just what you’ve said, but make a little bread for me first. Then use what’s left to prepare a meal for yourself and your son.”

Earlier on in my walk with God, I struggled with this scripture. How can a prophet who withdrew the rain by the finger of God, has been feeding fat by divine provision, now come and demand for the first portion from this widow who probably had emaciated and had a son to care Read the rest of this entry

Worship Stance, I

2 Sam.6:18-19 “Then he blessed the people in the name of the Lord of heaven and gave a present to everyone—men and women alike—of a loaf of bread, some wine, and a cake of raisins. When it was all over, and everyone had gone home” (TLB)

Today’s anchor scripture is a demonstration of letting your worship flow into your words and deeds. Even though David had sacrificed after every six steps, he went further to sacrifice again when the Ark of God entered Jerusalem. Read the rest of this entry

Do It Now!

Eccl. 11:4 “Farmers who wait for perfect weather never plant. If they watch every cloud, they never harvest.”

Prov. 6:4 “Don’t procrastinate—there’s no time to lose.” (MSG). Most times, we just waste time. There is not going to be an ideal time, start it now! Just get it done! Do not waste time, the conditions are not going to be perfect. Read the rest of this entry

Shift!

3 John 1:2 Beloved, I wish above all things that thou mayest prosper and be in health, even as thy soul prospereth. (KJV)

As a child of God, wherever you are on the face of the earth, you are designed to prosper regardless. And this is not just a pep talk or prosperity talk. I have shown you from scriptures, Read the rest of this entry

Stop It!

1 Kings 22:48 “Now Jehoshaphat built a fleet of trading ships to go to Ophir for gold, but they never set sail–they were wrecked at Ezion- Geber.” (NIV)

By the grace of God, as a Pastor, I am committed to seeing the people God has called me to, fulfil their destiny. It is my life’s commitment. Our lives must glorify God. God must look at us and say, ‘these are My children’. Read the rest of this entry
