All

Psalm 34:19 “Many are the afflictions of the righteous, but the Lord rescues them from them all.” (NRSV).

God wants us to remember even in the valley, that The Reward Will Last Forever! Remember God Has a Good Purpose Even For The Valley! And Remember that You Are Not Alone! God wants us to remember that regardless of the valleys we go through, we are never alone. I am not alone. Read the rest of this entry

Your Response, VI

Isaiah 60:5 “Your eyes will shine, and your heart will thrill with joy, for merchants from around the world will come to you. They will bring you the wealth of many lands.”

We learnt yesterday about positive phototropism and negative phototropism. With positive phototropism, the plants grow towards the light. But in negative phototropism, the plants grow away from the light into darkness. Read the rest of this entry

Your Response, IV

Psalm 34:5 “Look to Him and shine, so shame will never contort your faces.” (Voice)

We will kick off today’s devotional with our final thought from yesterday which is that where you look determines what flows to you. Are you looking at the Source of light or are you looking at social media and what is trending? Are you looking at which celebrity is saying what, or what is going on in the news?

Your Response, III

Psalm 27:1 “Yahweh, The Lord is my light and my salvation, my revelation-light and the source of my salvation — so why should I be afraid? I fear no one! The Lord is my fortress, protecting me. I’ll never turn back and run, for you, Yahweh, surround and protect me.(NLT, TPT)

Psalm 114:1-7 When the Israelites escaped from Egypt—when the family of Jacob left that foreign land—the land of Judah became God’s sanctuary, and Israel became his kingdom. The Red Sea saw them coming and hurried out of their way! The water of the Jordan River turned away. Read the rest of this entry

Your Response, II

1 John 1:5This, in essence, is the message we heard from Christ and are passing on to you: God is light, pure light; there’s not a trace of darkness in him.” (MSG).

Listen, there is no darkness whatsoever, there is no shadow of turning, no variableness in God. God is light, pure light. Since God is light and God is shining upon you, and you are like a tree, you will take the light of God and produce sustenance. Read the rest of this entry

Your Response, I

Isaiah 37:31 “And you who are left in Judah, who have escaped the ravages of the siege, will put roots down in your own soil and grow up and flourish.”

You will arise and you will shine. You will get up and you will be noticed for excellence. However, roots before shoots. In basic biology, the first thing that grows in a plant is the root. And it is because plants need water. The roots go down into the soil and get water for the plant. Read the rest of this entry

Created To Endure

Isaiah 60:1 “Arise, shine; For your light has come! And the glory of the Lord is risen upon you.” (NKJV)

God’s Word to us today is Arise and Shine. Why would God be telling us to arise and shine at such a time as this? Is that not counter-intuitive? However, I believe very strongly in my heart that God is speaking to you and to me and He is saying Arise and Shine. Read the rest of this entry

Doors

Revelation 4:1 “Then as I looked, I saw a door standing open in heaven, and the same voice I had heard before spoke to me like a trumpet blast. The voice said, “Come up here, and I will show you what must happen after this.”

Doors are a consistent concept in Scripture. In fact, doors are mentioned about four hundred times in the Bible. We have been engaging the concept of doors representing the options of the future that is ahead of us in this decade of destiny, this decade of light. Read the rest of this entry

Right People

2 Corinthians 6:14 “Don’t develop partnerships with those who are not followers of Jesus’ teachings. For what real connection can exist between righteousness and rebellion? How can light participate in darkness? (Voice)

Over the past few days, we looked at the reasons why we need to be a part of a community, why we need to join a team, and why we need to be part of a team. However, in choosing a team or in joining a team, there are a couple of things we should look out for. Read the rest of this entry

Place Value

Psalm 40:7-8 “Then said I, Lo, I come: in the volume of the book it is written of me, I delight to do thy will, O my God: yea, thy law is within my heart.” (KJV, emphasis added)

Today, we are going to focus on the book David was referring to in our anchor scripture because people often get the concept of the book wrong. As represented in the inserted illustration, the book of my life and your life has three chapters — Chapters A, B, and C. Chapter A is from birth to when you are of age. Read the rest of this entry
