Be More!

1 Sam.1:11 And she made this vow: “O Lord of Heaven’s Armies, if you will look upon my sorrow and answer my prayer and give me a son, then I will give him back to you. He will be yours for his entire lifetime, and as a sign that he has been dedicated to the Lord, his hair will never be cut.”

We are not asking just to get more from God, we are asking of God so that we can be more for Him. God is going to saturate your life with favour, in the Name of Jesus. Read the rest of this entry

His Name Not Yours

Dan.9:17 “O our God, hear your servant’s prayer! Listen as I plead. For your own sake, Lord, smile again on your desolate sanctuary.”

I have found in my walk with God, that one of the strongest pleas in supplication is “for your own sake” and Daniel also deployed this. Read the rest of this entry

Of The Heart

Acts 9:39 “So Peter returned with them… they took him to the upstairs room… filled with widows who were weeping and showing him the coats and other clothes Dorcas had made for them. 40 …then he knelt and prayed… 41 …Then he …presented her to them alive.”

 

What is your contribution? It is in our contribution that we find fulfilment in our marriages, in our homes, in our organizations and in our businesses.

In Step

John 14:“Jesus told him, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one can come to the Father except through me.”

 

Our heavenly Father is a perfect example of love, wisdom, and sufficiency. He says, “I Am that I Am – I Am sufficient in Myself” and we should follow His example.

To Action

Dan.9:2 “During the first year of his reign, I, Daniel, learned from reading the word of the Lord, as revealed to Jeremiah the prophet” [with emphasis]

 

Our scripture reference today shows us that Daniel did not have the answers. But Daniel learned from reading Books – the Word of the Lord in the Book of Jeremiah. Bottom line, Daniel was really smart but he still had to read. Read the rest of this entry

Step Up Lesson 1

Gen.4:When it was time for the harvest, Cain presented some of his crops as a gift to the Lord. Abel also brought a gift—the best portions of the firstborn lambs from his flock. The Lord accepted Abel and his gift, but he did not accept Cain and his gift…”

 

Cain must have thought, after all, the cattle on a thousand hills belong to God so He really does not need anything. So Cain gives God a shabby offering and moves on. But the Bible says that God had no respect for Cain and for his offering. Read the rest of this entry

Evidence of Faith

James 2:18 (Voice) “I know what you’re thinking: “OK, you have faith. And I have actions. Now let’s see your faith without works, and I’ll show you a faith that works.”

 

Works are an evidence of faith. You cannot separate works from faith. Some people claim to have faith but not works and others pride themselves in their works without faith. However, James is saying “how can you have faith without work or how can you have works without faith?” Read the rest of this entry

Active Faith

Heb.11:6 “And it is impossible to please God without faith. Anyone who wants to come to him must believe that God exists and that he rewards those who sincerely seek him”

 

God wants us to Step Up in different areas of our lives. We have looked at how to step up financially and spiritually. Over the next few days, we will be looking at a component of stepping up that is indispensable and that is Faith. It is impossible to Step Up without faith. Read the rest of this entry

Earn Some!

2 Thess. 3:12 “In the name of the Lord Jesus Christ, we appeal to people–no, we command them: Settle down and get to work. Earn your own living” [with emphasis]

 

When it comes to stepping up financially, there are seven areas in which you have to Step Up in concurrently otherwise you will have a problem stepping up financially. But if you Step Up in these areas, you will inevitably Step Up financially, in Jesus Name. Read the rest of this entry

Higher Still

1 Tim. 6:10 “For the love of money is the root of all kinds of evil. And some people, craving money, have wandered from the true faith and pierced themselves with many sorrows.” [with emphasis]

 

It is crowded at the bottom; there is a lot of confusion and limited visibility. At the bottom is where contention and strife thrive. There are certain advantages you cannot take at the bottom. Read the rest of this entry
