Resurrection

John 12: 24 “I tell you the truth, unless a kernel of wheat is planted in the soil and dies, it remains alone. But its death will produce many new kernels—a plentiful harvest of new lives.”

We will kick off today’s devotional with our final thought from yesterday. Mary, Martha, and Lazarus were Jesus’ friends. Unfortunately, Lazarus became sick and eventually died. Mary and Martha had sent a message to Jesus, but Jesus did not get there until Lazarus had passed on. Read the rest of this entry

Source Dependent I

Acts 17:28 “For in him we live and move and exist. As some of your own poets have said, ‘We are his offspring.’”

Blessings are spiritual streams. A stream should have a source and an outlet. Understanding the importance of the source and the outlet makes our lives pleasurable and easier. It Is The Source That  Creates The Stream and not the other way around. Read the rest of this entry

The New, The Overflow

Luke 5:37-38 “And no one puts new wine into old wineskins. For the new wine would burst the wineskins, spilling the wine and ruining the skins. New wine must be stored in new wineskins.”

Get excited because God is taking away ‘The Old’ in order to establish ‘The New’. God is on your side and God is all that you need. For someone today, God Himself is giving you a new name. The Lord God is giving you a new name. Read the rest of this entry

Destiny Dilemma II

2 Sam.9:1 “One day David asked, “Is anyone in Saul’s family still alive—anyone to whom I can show kindness for Jonathan’s sake?”

1 Sam.20:30-42 highlights Jonathan’s destiny dilemma. Should Jonathan have gone with David or did he do the right thing by staying with Saul? I know we dealt extensively with this in yesterday’s devotional. But I want to Read the rest of this entry

Never Empty

2 Kings 4:3 “…Borrow as many empty jars as you can from your friends and neighbors. 4 Then go into your house with your sons and shut the door behind you. Pour olive oil from your flask into the jars…” 7…sell the olive oil and pay your debts, and you and your sons can live on what is left over.”

Life is not a straight line, things happen to us. We get battered and we lose stuff. But the mistake most people make is to lose hope because of the things they have lost. Read the rest of this entry

Step Up

Rev.5:9 “…You are worthy to take the scroll and break its seals and open it. For you were slaughtered, and your blood has ransomed people for God from every tribe and language and people and nation. 10 And you have caused them to become a Kingdom of priests for our God…”

The final prophecy that we would be looking at is: the Messiah would be seated at God’s right hand. Read the rest of this entry

The Name

Luke 1:27 “to a virgin named Mary. She was engaged to be married to a man named Joseph, a descendant of King David… 30 “Don’t be afraid, Mary,” the angel told her, “for you have found favor with God! 31 You will conceive and give birth to a son, and you will name him Jesus.

The truth is that God knows exactly where you were born before you were born. You were not born by accident. Many of us think we are Nigerians by accident. Read the rest of this entry

Lead The Way

Mk.5:36 Overhearing what they said, Jesus told him, “Don’t be afraid; just believe.” 41 He took her by the hand and said to her, “Talitha koum!” (which means “Little girl, I say to you, get up!” {ARISE}). 42 Immediately the girl stood up and began to walk around…” [NIV, with emphasis].

First comes initiative, then personal prophesy, then good company, then the forth thing that lifts up is Instruction. Jesus gave the man an instruction and Jesus gave the girl an instruction. However, Read the rest of this entry

Submitted?

Job 23:14 “So he will do to me whatever he has planned. He controls my destiny.”

We have to submit to the process and let God expunge Egypt out of us. I have seen where curses are actually broken but the pattern of behaviour continued. Read the rest of this entry

Ten Strikes

Ex.12:12 “On that night I will pass through the land of Egypt and strike down every firstborn son and firstborn male animal in the land of Egypt. I will execute judgment against all the gods of Egypt, for I am the Lord!” [with emphasis].

You cannot negotiate with the devil, he is your arch enemy. It is truly erroneous to think that if you are good and you leave the devil alone, he will leave you alone. Read the rest of this entry
