Mark 2:22 “And 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
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
Jer.29:11 “For I know the plans I have for you,” says the Lord. “They are plans for good and not for disaster, to give you a future and a hope.”
We are in the season of New-Streams and the rivers of God are flowing already. I want to encourage you to stay focused on God alone, dive in and God will meet with you in Jesus Name. Read the rest of this entry
Eze.34:2 “…Shouldn’t shepherds feed their sheep… 4 You have not taken care of the weak. You have not tended the sick or bound up the injured. You have not gone looking for those who have wandered away and are lost…” [with emphasis].
Two people are only as intimate as what exists between them. What exists between you and God is what makes your relationship personal and intimate. There should be things that exist only between you and God. Read the rest of this entry
Acts 13:11 [MSG] “But now you’ve come up against God himself, and your game is up. You’re about to go blind—no sunlight for you for a good long stretch.” He was plunged immediately into a shadowy mist and stumbled around, begging people to take his hand and show him the way.”
The final thought from yesterday’s devotion was, do not go against someone that is on assignment because God will back him or her up even when he or she does things that do not make sense. Read the rest of this entry
Ps.139: 5 “You go before me and follow me. You place your hand of blessing on my head.”
Happy New Year! In this New year, God will continue to fill us to the over flowing with the life of Christ Jesus. God will continue to release us into our destinies and God’s Favourite House
2 Tim. 1:6 (NIV) “For this reason I remind you to fan into flame the gift of God, which is in you through the laying on of my hands.”
The Bible says that Moses laid his hand on Joshua and the Spirit of wisdom entered into Joshua because Moses had the Spirit of wisdom. You cannot give what you do not have.
Lu.9:23 (KJV) “If anyone would come after me, let him deny himself and take up his cross daily and follow me” [with emphasis].
What then is this cross that Jesus is speaking to us about? A lot of the things we are calling our cross are the things that The Cross of Jesus came to sort out. Those things are not your cross. Read the rest of this entry
Deut.11:18 “So commit yourselves wholeheartedly to these words of mine. Tie them to your hands and wear them on your forehead as reminders. 19 Teach them to your children. Talk about them when you are at home and when you are on the road…”
Our lesson today is from the life of Samuel, Hannah’s son. Hannah had a deal with God; He would give her a son and she will give the son back to God to serve God. And that was exactly what happened. God gave her Samuel and immediately she weaned him, she dedicated him to God and dropped him off at the temple. You can imagine how young the boy was but she actually left him in the temple with Eli. She would visit him from time to time to give him new clothes. When you dedicate your children to God, believe that Read the rest of this entry
Gen.32:5 and now I own cattle, donkeys, flocks of sheep and goats, and many servants, both men and women…10…When I left home and crossed the Jordan River, I owned nothing except a walking stick. Now my household fills two large camps!
Be alert and expectant because God is changing destinies from Jacob to Israel in this season. Jacob and Esau were twin sons of Isaac and Rebecca. Isaac tilted towards Esau, while Rebecca tilted towards Jacob. From birth both sons struggled, even though Esau came out first; Jacob held on to his heel. Esau felt that he had won but Jacob had the birthright in view. He waited for the opportuned time and took it. Note: Jacob took the birthright; he did not steal it – two different things. Esau got really angry and was going to kill Jacob.
