John 2:11 “This miraculous sign at Cana in Galilee was the first time Jesus revealed his glory. And his disciples believed in him.”
John 2:9-10 “When the master of ceremonies tasted the water that was now wine, not knowing where it had come from (though, of course, the servants knew), he called the bridegroom over. “A host always serves the best wine first,” he said. “Then, when everyone has had a lot to drink, he brings out the less expensive wine. But you have kept the best until now!” (NRSV, emphasis added). Every time people look at your life and say, “We thought we had seen your best, but this is even better!” Read the rest of this entry
Jn.1:4 “The Word gave life to everything that was created, and his life brought light to everyone.”
Dabar, God’s Word, gives life and that life brings light. It is not the other way around; we will like to have light first before we put life into a situation. But God puts His life and His life brings the light. In Gen.1, in the beginning the earth was without form and void, Read the rest of this entry
Ps.9:1-2 “I will praise you, Lord, with all my heart; I will tell of all the marvellous things you have done. I will be filled with joy because of you. I will sing praises to your name, O Most High.”
It is one thing to know ‘why’ you should do something, but it is a totally different thing to know ‘how’. Our focus today is on how to live a life of thanksgiving to God. The first way is to thank God by Singing From Your Heart. Can the tone of your voice give your expression a different meaning? Certainly. God says sing from your heart; meaning, every time you show up before God, alone or in a crowd, God wants you to sing from your heart. Read the rest of this entry
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
Job 42:5-6 “I had only heard about you before, but now I have seen you with my own eyes. I take back everything I said, and I sit in dust and ashes to show my repentance.”
Sometimes, because we cannot see very far, we tend to argue with God. We look at our lives and we question God’s heart and His goodness. Why did You not do this and why did You not answer that prayer. Read the rest of this entry
2 Cor.4:17 (AMP) For our momentary, light distress (this passing trouble) is producing for us an eternal weight of glory (a fullness) beyond all measure (surpassing all comparisons, a transcendent splendour and an endless blessedness)!
When should I fast? You should fast in preparation to receive a Word from God. In God’s Favourite House, for example, we deliberately cut out special seasons where we fast in preparation to receive a Word from God. Read the rest of this entry
Rev.19:10 (Voice) “…Stop it. Don’t you see? I am a servant like you and your brothers and sisters, all who hold fast to the testimony of Jesus. Address your worship to God, not to me! For the testimony about Jesus is essentially the prophetic spirit.”
It was prophesied that the Messiah would be forsaken by God. The prophecy is in Ps.22:1 “My God, my God, why have you abandoned me? Why are you so far away when I groan for help?” [with emphasis]. Read the rest of this entry
Ps.119:90 “Your faithfulness extends to every generation, as enduring as the earth you created. 91 Your regulations remain true to this day, for everything serves your plans. 92 If your instructions hadn’t sustained me with joy, I would have died in my misery”.
The eighteenth prophecy about Jesus that we are considering is, the Messiah’s price money would be used to buy a potter’s field.What the thirty pieces of silver that Judas collected will be used for was even prophesied. Read the rest of this entry
Deut.8:3 (NKJV) “So He humbled you, allowed you to hunger, and fed you with manna which you did not know nor did your fathers know, that He might make you know that man shall not live by bread alone; but man lives by every word that proceeds from the mouth of the Lord.”
Yesterday, I shared my experience of being forced down with you and the gains I am still enjoying till this day. However, right in the middle of service year, Read the rest of this entry
Isa.65:22 “No longer will they build houses and others live in them, or plant and others eat. For as the days of a tree, so will be the days of my people; my chosen ones will long enjoy the work of their hands” (NIV, with emphasis).
Any one that takes a position against God’s plan for your life will be crushed by the weight of God’s glory. You will not be naïve all the days of your life. There are implications to aligning with God and there are implications to being against God. Read the rest of this entry
