Recognition

1 Cor.15:41 “The sun is glorious in one way, the moon is glorious in another way, and the stars are glorious in their own [distinctive] way; for one star differs from and surpasses another in its beauty and brilliance.” (AMPC].

John 3:27 “John answered them, “A person cannot receive even one thing unless God bestows it.” (TPT]. Look to God and God alone as your source and do not be jealous of any man. The truth is, it does not make sense to be arrogant because you are nothing without Jesus – nothing! Read the rest of this entry

Gift Thanks

Ps. 107:21-22 (KJV) “Oh that men would praise the Lord for his goodness, and for his wonderful works to the children of men! And let them sacrifice the sacrifices of thanksgiving and declare his works with rejoicing.”

For the past few days, we have been looking at how to show our gratitude to God. Gratitude is big and we cannot over emphasize the importance particularly for us God’s people. We can show gratitude by singing from our hearts, by telling others the good news, by serving with the abilities He has given us, and by giving an offering back to God. Read the rest of this entry

The How

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

From The Heart

Ps.145:3 “The Lord is GREAT and worthy of our praise; no one can understand how great he is.” (NCV, emphasis added)

How grateful are you today? Are you grateful? An old saying reads, ‘’Your life is God’s gift to you, but what you do with your life is your gift to GOD.’’ Your life is indeed God’s gift to you. However, what you do with your life is the gift you give back to God. Read the rest of this entry

New Reality

Gal.2:20 (KJV) “I am crucified with Christ: nevertheless I live; yet not I, but Christ liveth in me: and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by the faith of the Son of God, who loved me, and gave himself for me.”

Rom.12:2Don’t let the world squeeze you into its mold, but let God remake you so that your whole attitude of mind [your person] is changed.” (Phillips, paraphrased, emphasis added). The Lord wants to make you up. 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

Uphold Her Glory!

Isa.54:14 “You will be secure under a government that is just and fair. Your enemies will stay far away. You will live in peace, and terror will not come near.”

Today, we are taking a break from our study to focus on our Nigeria. Sometimes, when we think about Nigeria, particularly for those who are vested in this country, it is a sweet and sour experience. Read the rest of this entry

Is He?

Ps.23:1 The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want.” [NKJV, with emphasis]

The first question Psalm 23 [please read] confronts us with is, who is your shepherd? David categorically says the Lord is my shepherd. You and I need to answer this question for ourselves, who is your shepherd? Read the rest of this entry

My Need

Philip.2:9 “Therefore, God elevated him to the place of highest honor and gave him the name above all other names, 10 that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, in heaven and on earth and under the earth, 11 and every tongue declare that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.”

I am humble when I let go of my privileges for God. I have deliberately chosen not to have a special parking spot because I noticed that when I start parking in a certain location, before long it becomes the desired parking space. Read the rest of this entry

Sweet Holy Spirit

Ps. 119:103 (JUB) “How sweet have been thy spoken words unto my taste! yea, sweeter than honey to my mouth!”

Today, we will pick up from our last thought from yesterday’s devotional and that is, “You hold on to the Word until you hear His voice!” A profound truth I had never heard in my over two decades of walking with God. Read the rest of this entry
