Pressure Cooker!

2 Samuel 22:33 “God is my strong fortress, and he makes my way perfect.”


We will pick up from where we left off yesterday and that is in James 1:2-4 Consider it a sheer gift, friends, when tests and challenges come at you from all sides. You know that under pressure, your faith-life is forced into the open and shows its true colours. So don’t try to get out of anything prematurely. Let it do its work so you become mature and well-developed, not deficient in any way.” (MSG). Read the rest of this entry

Just Stay

Hebrews 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.”


Faith is powerful. Faith is a prerequisite to walking with God. Hebrews 11:6 “…without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him.” (KJV). Read the rest of this entry

Only Believe

John 11:39 “Roll the stone aside,” Jesus told them. But Martha, the dead man’s sister, protested, “Lord, he has been dead for four days. The smell will be terrible.”


The year 2023 is not yet over. I know some of us just want the year to be over already. But it is not over yet. God loads us daily with benefits, and cumulatively, God loads us yearly with benefits. Some of the benefits earmarked for this year will not be relevant in 2024. You need to take delivery of these blessings in the Name of Jesus. Read the rest of this entry

The Way Maker

John 11:43-44 “Then Jesus shouted, “Lazarus, come out!”  And the dead man came out, his hands and feet bound in graveclothes, his face wrapped in a headcloth. Jesus told them, “Unwrap him and let him go!”


We will kick off today’s devotional with our final thought from yesterday which is, Lazarus was delivered but he was not free. Do you mean that after that powerful Word brought the man from the dead, carried him, and presented him before the people, he still was not free? No! We confuse deliverance with freedom many times.

John 11:26 Everyone who lives in me and believes in me will never ever die. Do you believe this, Martha?”


We have looked at the way of “A” Access to Jesus, “B” Belief, and “C” Concerted Effort. The fourth way I am praying will open to you is The Way Of Deliverance. John 11:43-44 “Then Jesus shouted, “Lazarus, come out!” And the dead man came out…”. In the Name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, I speak into your life, everything that represents Lazarus I say, hear the voice of the Lord, Lazarus come forth, in the Mighty Name of Jesus.

Open Up!

Ecclesiastes 4:9-10 “Two people are better off than one, for they can help each other succeed. If one person falls, the other can reach out and help. But someone who falls alone is in real trouble.”


Be careful of what you think – you think particularly about God. Check where your expectation is as your expectation determines what you actually think and believe about God. Ezekiel 37:1&3 “…I was carried away by the Spirit of the Lord to a valley filled with bones… Then he asked me, “Son of man, can these bones become living people again?” “O Sovereign Lord,” I replied, “you alone know the answer to that.Read the rest of this entry


Isaiah 64:3-4 “When you came down long ago, you did awesome deeds beyond our highest expectations. And oh, how the mountains quaked! For since the world began, no ear has heard and no eye has seen a God like you, who works for those who wait for him!”


Martha made very boastful statements about what she believed, but did Martha really believe? John 11:39 Roll the stone aside,” Jesus told them. But Martha, the dead man’s sister, protested, “Lord, he has been dead for four days. The smell will be terrible.”Martha objected, protested, carried a placard, she resisted Jesus. Sometimes we say very high-sounding nonsense. Read the rest of this entry

Access & Believe

Mark 9:23-24 “What do you mean, ‘If I can’?” Jesus asked. “Anything is possible if a person believes.” The father instantly cried out, “I do believe, but help me overcome my unbelief!”


John 11:5-6 “So although Jesus loved Martha, Mary, and Lazarus, he stayed where he was for the next two days.” The way of access to Jesus is open to you, receive it, in the Mighty Name of Jesus. However, what do you do when it appears that the way to The Way Maker is blocked? Read the rest of this entry

The Way

John 14:6 “Jesus told him, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one can come to the Father except through me.”


For the next few days, we will be turning our focus to John 11:1-44. Please read it. We must not lose the art of reading the Bible. Even if you are familiar with the text and the story, do not skip any verse because, with God, you have to go through the scriptures. Read the rest of this entry

Biblical Attitudes, VII

Proverbs 16:3 “Commit your works to the Lord [submit and trust them to Him], And your plans will succeed [if you respond to His will and guidance].” (AMP)


To get your work to a place where it is transformed and heaven’s blessings are upon it, first, Work Enthusiastically Wherever You Are Right Now. Second, Understand Who You Are Really Working For. Third, Concentrate On Building CHARACTER. Read the rest of this entry
