Think On These

Luke 11:10 “For everyone who asks, receives. Everyone who seeks, finds. And to everyone who knocks, the door will be opened.”

We start today’s devotional with the concluding thought from yesterday which is, “Lay hands suddenly on no man…” (1 Tim. 5:22, KJV). John provides us with the missing link regarding Jesus choosing the disciples. We see from John’s account that Jesus already knew these men before He engaged them. Read the rest of this entry

Turn-Around

2Cor.4:17 For our present troubles are small and won’t last very long. Yet they produce for us a glory that vastly outweighs them and will last forever!” [with emphasis]

God wants you to know that your troubles, no matter how big and complex they may seem, are small. Who will you believe, the problem or God? Read the rest of this entry

The Test

Dan.6: 14 “Hearing this, the king was deeply troubled, and he tried to think of a way to save Daniel. He spent the rest of the day looking for a way to get Daniel out of this predicament.”

Life will consistently present you with situations where you are helpless, the question is, what will you do at such time? Yesterday, I told you about my position never to cheat in any examination, right? I was a computer Read the rest of this entry

How It Works

Dan.3: 25 “Look!” Nebuchadnezzar shouted. “I see four men, unbound, walking around in the fire unharmed! And the fourth looks like a god!”

Ambassadors of God’s Kingdom know that honour is given to whom honour is due and worship is given to Whom worship is due. God alone, the Maker of the heavens and the earth, is worthy of the worship of His people. If like Read the rest of this entry

Ripening

James 1:2 … when troubles of any kind come your way, consider it an opportunity for great joy. 3 For you know that when your faith is tested, your endurance has a chance to grow. 4 So let it grow, for when your endurance is fully developed, you will be perfect and complete, needing nothing.”

The greater your threshold for pain, the greater your capacity for leadership. In positions of leadership, expect people to will say horrible things about you, can you take it? People will stab you in the back and in Read the rest of this entry

Face The Fear I

Ps.105:19 “Until the time came to fulfil his dreams, the Lord tested Joseph’s character.”

 

We all are drawn to people that have character. I love people that have character and I am sure you do too. Think about this; who will you leave your child with?

At The Roots

Ps.32:3 [MSG] “When I kept it all inside, my bones turned to powder, my words became daylong groans. 4 the pressure never let up… 5 Then I let it all out… Suddenly the pressure was gone –my guilt dissolved, my sin disappeared. 6 These things add up…”

 

Unfortunately, unlike David, a lot of us sometimes are unable to connect the trouble we are in with the decisions we have made. We cannot connect the mess with the source. Read the rest of this entry

Arise!

Prov. 22:29 (LB) “Do you know a hard-working man? He shall be successful and stand before kings!” [with emphasis]

 

Today, I will start you off with some shocking background stories to the success stories a lot of us celebrate and wish for today. Oprah Winfrey was fired as a television presenter; they said she was not good enough. Today, she owns her television network. So you got fired –big deal! Turn it around. Michael Jordan’s high school basketball coach said he was not good enough to play basketball. Michael Jordan went ahead to win Read the rest of this entry

Classroom

Luke 16:10 “Whoever can be trusted with very little can be trusted with much…”

 

God wants us to work; work is God’s idea and work is a tool He uses to supply our needs. The third reason why God wants us to work is because work develops our character. God uses work as a testing ground for us. Read the rest of this entry

Boast In These

Jer.9:24 “But those who wish to boast should boast in this alone: that they truly know me and understand that I am the Lord who demonstrates unfailing love and who brings justice and righteousness to the earth, and that I delight in these things. I, the Lord, have spoken!”

 

Job 38:Who is this that questions my wisdom with such ignorant words? Brace yourself like a man, because I have some questions for you, and you must answer them.” How does one boast when his or her ignorance is revealed? Read the rest of this entry
