C. O. T. II

Psalm 42:1-2 “As the deer longs for streams of water, so I long for you, O God. I thirst for God, the living God. When can I go and stand before him?”

One thing heaven can never ignore is a hungry soul. Remember the woman with the issue of blood? She was hungry for her healing. The other people wanted an appointment with Jesus or wanted Jesus to go to their house, that was their business. Afterall, they have enough clout to make it happen. Read the rest of this entry

The Journey

Ps.66:10-12 “He trained us first, passed us like silver through refining fires, brought us into hardscrabble country, pushed us to our very limit, road-tested us inside and out, took us to hell and back; Finally he brought us to this well-watered place.” (MSG)

For us that are in the New Covenant, the uncommon dream that God has for us, the God-sized dream that God has for us will take us on a journey of uncommon paths. The path that God is taking you through is not the path your brothers took. It is not the path that your sisters took. Read the rest of this entry

Heavenly Cover

Ps.91:3-4 “For he will rescue you from every trap and protect you from deadly disease. He will cover you with his feathers. He will shelter you with his wings. His faithful promises are your armour and protection.”

When the heavens open, you have clear communication, angels work for you, and you have the different dynamics and different sides of rainfall. Fourthly, you have Protection. Why? It is because open heavens attract attacks. Open heavens can be individualized; Read the rest of this entry

Secrets, III

Isaiah 22:22 “I will give him the key to the house of David—the highest position in the royal court. When he opens doors, no one will be able to close them; when he closes doors, no one will be able to open them.”

When the heavens open, the first thing to expect is Clear Communication With Heaven. The second thing to expect is Angels Will Work For You. Gen.28:12 And he dreamed, and behold a ladder set up on the earth, and the top of it reached to heaven: and behold the angels of God ascending and descending on it.” (KJV, emphasis added).

Sustainer

Isaiah 43:2 “When you pass through the deep, stormy sea, you can count on me to be there with you. When you pass through raging rivers, you will not drown. When you walk through persecution like fiery flames, you will not be burned; the flames will not harm you” (TPT)

What an assurance! Mark 8:25Jesus put his hands over the man’s eyes a second time and made him look up. The man opened his eyes wide and he could see everything perfectly. His eyesight was completely restored!” (TPT). Read the rest of this entry

Who He Is, II

Ps. 145:3 The Lord is GREAT. He is worthy of our praise. No one can understand how great he is.” (ICB, emphasis added).

The first reason why my life and your life should give God thanks is Because Of Who God Is. God is GREAT, God is HOLY, God is LOVE, and God is JUST. Does that mean God is fair or is God unfair? Some people think that God is unfair even though they are afraid to say it for fear of being Read the rest of this entry

Who He Is, I

Ps.50:23 “… giving thanks is a sacrifice that truly honours me.” (emphasis added)

When you are grateful, you cannot really be anxious. When you actually worship, you cannot be worrying, they cannot coexist. You have to choose one, is it going to be worry or is it going to be worship? Is it going to be anxiety or is it going to be gratitude? Read the rest of this entry

In Prayer

1 Kings 17:1 “Now Elijah, who was from Tishbe in Gilead, told King Ahab, “As surely as the Lord, the God of Israel, lives—the God I serve—there will be no dew or rain during the next few years until I give the word!”

Jesus is not just pleading for mercy when it comes to us, Jesus is pleading for justice. It is unjust to punish the same sin twice; Jesus already received the full punishment for our sin on the cross of cavalry. Jesus is saying to God, ‘You have to be just with them; look at Me I died for them. Read the rest of this entry

The Blood

Jude 1:24 “Now, to the one with enough power to prevent you from stumbling into sin[a] and bring you faultless before his glorious presence to stand before him with ecstatic delight.” (TPT)

We start today’s devotional by delving deeper into 1 John 1 from yesterday. We are still looking at the two things that must be in place for us to take bold steps towards God and they are righteousness and single-mindedness. Read the rest of this entry

Come Clean

James 4:8 Draw near to God, and he will draw near to you. Cleanse your hands, you sinners, and purify your hearts, you double-minded.” (NRSV, emphasis added)

What comes to your mind when you think about God? Someone said, ‘What comes to mind when we think about God is the most important thing about us.’ So, what comes to your mind when you think about God? Read the rest of this entry
