His Praise

Ephesians 3:21 “Glory to him in the church and in Christ Jesus through all generations forever and ever! Amen.”


We are still on the question – ‘why church?’ Remember, the longer we stay with the question, the deeper our revelation. So, why church, why do we exist? Beginning today, we will be looking at four main reasons why we exist. The first is, we exist to celebrate God’s Presence [Worship]. When we gather, we celebrate the presence of our King, our God, and our Maker. Read the rest of this entry

Your Lifting

Psalm 18:16-17 “You reached down from heaven, and you lifted me from deep in the ocean. You rescued me from enemies, who were hateful and too powerful for me.” (CEV).


God has said this is your season of lifting and to lift is to raise, to elevate, to move not just from one level to another, but from a lower level to a higher level. So, God will lift you mentally in the Name of Jesus. For some people, the challenge is that the level of their mental reasoning is just too low. 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?

Sing. Pray. Tell.

Isa.12:4 “Thank the Lord and praise his name! Tell the world about his wonderful love!”(LB, emphasis added).

Ps.147:7Sing out your thanks to him; sing praises to our God.” (LB, emphasis added). We are to sing out our thanks to God. You cannot be singing, ‘God, You are the greatest! You are the mightiest! with your hands folded across your chest. You can insist that you are singing but what does your body language communicate? Read the rest of this entry

Why & How?

Ps. 9:14 “I will praise you and rejoice because you saved me!” (NCV, emphasis added).

My life and your life should give God thanks because of who He is, because of what He has done, and because of what He has PROMISED. For believers, the biggest promise we should thank God for is the gift of eternal life. Read the rest of this entry

Set Time

Ps.119:126 “Lord, it is time for you to act, for these evil people have violated your instructions.” (emphasis added)


Today, we will go back to our final thought from yesterday that flowed from Ps.105:44 When the time was right, He gave them land from other nations and they took possession of the wealth of the peoples” (The Voice, NRSV, emphasis added). Read the rest of this entry

The Nine, IV

Ps.34:1&3 “Lord! I’m bursting with joy over what you’ve done for me! My lips are full of perpetual praise. Join me, everyone! Let’s praise the Lord together. Let’s make him famous! Let’s make his name glorious to all.” (TPT)

Luke 17:17Jesus asked, “Didn’t I heal ten men? Where are the other nine?” We have been searching for the nine and so far, we have found six. The first one listened to the voice of doubt. The second one said his healing was a coincidence. Read the rest of this entry


James 5:13 “Is anyone among you afflicted (ill-treated, suffering evil)? Are any of you suffering hardships? You should pray. Are any of you happy? You should sing praises.”(AMPC & NLT)

Acts 16:25-26 And at midnight Paul and Silas prayed, and sang praises unto God: and the prisoners heard them. And suddenly there was a great earthquake, so that the foundations of the prison were shaken: and immediately all the doors were opened, and every one’s bands were loosed.” [emphasis added].

Praise Point

Acts 16:35-36 “The next morning the city officials sent the police to tell the jailer, “Let those men go!” So, the jailer told Paul, “The city officials have said you and Silas are free to leave. Go in peace.”

After reading today’s anchor scripture, I wrestled with it. God is All-knowing, He created the heavens and the earth, He knew that they were going to release Paul and Silas the following day. Read the rest of this entry

Worship Happens When…

John 4:22-23 “You Samaritans know very little about the one you worship… But the time is coming—indeed it’s here now—when true worshipers will worship the Father in spirit and in truth. The Father is looking for those who will worship him that way.”

2 Sam.6:20 “…Michal …said, ‘How the king of Israel has distinguished himself today, disrobing in the sight of the slave girls of his servants as any vulgar fellow would!’ (NIV). 2 Sam.6:21-22 “David said to Michal, ‘It was before the Lord, who chose me rather than your father or anyone from his house… I will celebrate before the Lord. I will become even more undignified than this, and I will be humiliated in my own eyes. But by these slave girls you spoke of, I will be held in honour.’” (NIV). This is so huge! I urge you to spend some time just meditating on it. Read the rest of this entry
