What God Did

Rom 8:3

3 For what the Law could not do, weak as it was through the flesh, God did: sending His own Son in the likeness of sinful flesh and as an offering for sin, He condemned sin in the flesh,

NASB

The law on its own is not weak, as a matter of fact if it were possible to keep the law accurately; there would be salvation for us because of that. The basic problem with the law was that its requirements were in the flesh, the law walked with the flesh and because of the weakness of the flesh the law could not bring to mankind what God intended.

The law was unable to save us because we were unable to keep the law in its entirety and this was because we all share a sinful weak nature. God solved this problem by giving Jesus as the ultimate sacrifice for sin so that we would not have to suffer again the consequences of breaking the law when we accept Him. He did this because of His great love for us.

The Law of life part 1

Rom 8:2

For the law of the Spirit of life [which is] in Christ Jesus [the law of our new being] has freed me from the law of sin and of death.

AMP

When you were born into this world you were born with a law of sin and death that operated through (and because of) the flesh, that is the reason why you naturally sinned and no one had to teach you how to commit essential sins (like lying etc.). The law of life now operates in you through the Spirit of Christ(the Holy Spirit) that dwells in you because you are born again by believing in Christ Jesus and accepting Him into your life as your Lord and personal savior.

One of the attributes of the law of sin and death is that it causes you to sin and sin leads to death. This law dwells in your sinful flesh but when you are born again you have the ability to now walk in the spirit and not in the flesh.

Gal 5:16-18

16 This I say then, Walk in the Spirit, and ye shall not fulfill the lust of the flesh.

17 For the flesh lusteth against the Spirit, and the Spirit against the flesh: and these are contrary the one to the other: so that ye cannot do the things that ye would.

18 But if ye be led of the Spirit, ye are not under the law.

Praise, O servants of the Lord,

Praise the name of the Lord!

2 Blessed be the name of the Lord

From this time forth and forevermore!

3 From the rising of the sun to its going down

The Lord's name is to be praised.

NKJV

When I think of all God has done for us. That today we, who were far away, without God and without hope, can be called sons of the most high God; how that he has called us out of darkness into His light, and given u power over all the powers of the enemy. My soul can only bless His name for His goodness and kindness.

There is none who can show you as much love as the lord. There is none who can be so faithful and true. If have never had an encounter with the lord. He stands at the door of your hear and knocks. It is your prerogative to either let Him in which will be the best choice you’ll ever maker or loose this chance.

The name of the lord is to be praised from generation to generation; He is good at all times.

Gen 1:3-5

And God said, "Let there be light," and there was light. 4 God saw that the light was good, and he separated the light from the darkness. 5 God called the light "day," and the darkness he called "night." And there was evening, and there was morning — the first day.

NIV

God said it and there was light. God is the author of all good things. This God who is so powerful is on your side and He is interested in your future. He is more interested in your future than you. He has a plan for you that’s greater and better than your plans.

All you need to do to start living in the reality of His power and grace is for you to submit yourself totally to Him. Let His kingdom come in your world by establishing His righteousness in your life and in your world.

Go into today with the assurance that you are a creator of Good things just like your father who is in heaven

Ps 91:2-3

2 I will say of the Lord, He is my Refuge and my Fortress, my God; on Him I lean and rely, and in Him I [confidently] trust!

3 For [then] He will deliver you from the snare of the fowler and from the deadly pestilence.

AMP

There comes a time when you need to say to yourself that the lord and He alone is your refuge and your fortress. He is the one who protects and preserves you from the world and from danger. These are times when you look around and see that a lot may be going wrong around you. When there may begin to come the temptation of asking why. You need to encourage yourself in the lord and remind yourself of the reality; that because you dwell in the secret place of the most high, you are under His protection and there is absolutely nothing that can happen to you without God’s permission, all that can happen to you will only turn out for your good and favor. God will not allow anything that will not be for your good.

Go into today with a solid knowing that the Lord God of the heavens and the earth is your shield and protector.

Ps 91:7-8

A thousand may fall at your side, and ten thousand at your right hand, but it shall not come near you.

8 Only a spectator shall you be [yourself inaccessible in the secret place of the Most High] as you witness the reward of the wicked.

AMP

God has created you as an object of His mercy. You are more so when you dwell in His secret place. When you are in this place, even though evil things are happening everywhere because of the wickedness of the world, it will not come near you. You will be kept safe and secure by God’s mighty power.

You need to know that it is God’s desire to keep you always safe and happy, He wants the best for you. You get to receive this when you have constant fellowship with Him.

This is what it really means to dwell in the secret place of the most high; It means to have a solid father child relation with God who indeed wants to be your father. This can begin by asking Him to fill your heart with His Holy Spirit, and keeping a habit of praying in an atmosphere of God’s word. You need to devote time to prayer and the word of God.

Under God’s Protection

Ps 91:1
HE WHO w dwells in the secret place of the Most High shall remain stable and fixed under the shadow of the Almighty [Whose power no foe can withstand].
AMP

 
God who has all the power will be a shield to he who dwells in His secret place.
This is not a wishful thinking by a saint but a promise from God. And God NEVER fails on His promises. Heaven and earth may pass away but God’s word stands sure. And His word is that you will dwell under His unbeatable protection when you dwell in His secret place.
The secret place of God is the place where you and God meet. This is not a physical place but a spiritual one because God and you (the part of you God fellowships with) are spirits. The secret place is your place of personal fellowship and communion with your father in heaven. This is administered by the Holy Spirit who dwells in you. Those who have this will always enjoy God’s protection and power.
Go into today knowing that you have a secret place of fellowship with the most high. Let your day be filled with a constant conscious link of fellowship with your Father in Heaven.

God’s Basis for Judgment

image

Audio Version (click to listen or right click and select save link as to download

John 3:19

The [basis of the] judgment (indictment, the test by which men are judged, the ground for the sentence) lies in this: the Light has come into the world, and people have loved the darkness rather than and more than the Light, for their works (deeds) were evil.

AMP

I have always maintained some believes as a Christian, and this our bible verse only helps to buttress them. I have always believed that there are some people that are essentially evil, they love darkness, there is nothing you can do about it; they will always choose the dark over the light. I have always maintained that God is a just, and that God does not just select people based on how He feels but based on who they really are. God selected Jacob from HIS mother’s womb because God knew who Esau and Jacob were even before they were born. God knew this because He is the eternal I AM; he exists in the present, past and future all at the same time. This is also the basis for which judgment will come upon some. Because they saw the light and Chose to follow darkness. God who knows the choices that we would make before we were born decided to select and use us before we were born.

Going back to our study, Jesus says that people are judged because they loved darkness rather than light, and he says something most revealing here, he says because their deeds are evil. I would have thought that people’s deeds were evil because they love darkness, but I see here that they love darkness because their deeds are evil.

Examine your ways and see(decide) whose side you are on

God’s Power that works in you

AUDIO VERSION (Right click and ‘save link as’ to download)

Eph 3:20-21

20 Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us, 21 to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, for ever and ever! Amen.

NIV

FURTHER STUDY: JOHN 15:1-16(click to read)

I believe we must have heard that all power belongs to God, all authority in heaven and on earth has been given unto Jesus. This means that all the right and authorization to exert any form of power is given unto Jesus. Because you are joined with Christ; a member of His body, you automatically tap into this power that He has. The more effectively joined to Christ you are, the more flow of His power you will have in your life.

I want you to think of a branch that is joined to a tree; that branch enjoys from the substance of the tree, the power and life with which that branch survives is drawn from the tree. If a portion of the part connecting the branch to the tree has been severed, then the branch begins to die out and suffer, it may not die completely if it has a wound, but the branch will be deficient of substance till its connection to the tree is healed. If for some reason a branch gets infected with a disease, it will affect the flow of power in that branch and it needs to get healed to regain its normal stature. We are branches and Jesus is the vine.

Some of the things that sever our link with Christ are iniquity, guilt, and unbelief. One of the major causative factors of spiritual disease is guilt (listen to the audio for more insight).

God wants to do so much for you and through you, so much more than you can ever imagine. God will do this through the power that is in you. You get this power by staying joined to Christ.

Remember Jesus said “If ye abide in me, and my words abide in you, ye shall ask what ye will, and it shall be done unto you”. John 15:7 KJV

The key to receiving more from God is having His power in your life, the key to this power is abiding in Christ, and the key to abiding in Christ is trusting in Him and obeying His word

NEVER TOO LATE TO GET JESUS INVOLVED

image

Click to listen to Audio (Right click and save link as to download)

John 2:1-11

On the third day a wedding took place at Cana in Galilee. Jesus' mother was there, 2 and Jesus and his disciples had also been invited to the wedding. 3 When the wine was gone, Jesus' mother said to him, "They have no more wine."

4 "Dear woman, why do you involve me?" Jesus replied. "My time has not yet come."

5 His mother said to the servants, "Do whatever he tells you."

6 Nearby stood six stone water jars, the kind used by the Jews for ceremonial washing, each holding from twenty to thirty gallons. a

7 Jesus said to the servants, "Fill the jars with water"; so they filled them to the brim.

8 Then he told them, "Now draw some out and take it to the master of the banquet."

They did so, 9 and the master of the banquet tasted the water that had been turned into wine. He did not realize where it had come from, though the servants who had drawn the water knew. Then he called the bridegroom aside 10 and said, "Everyone brings out the choice wine first and then the cheaper wine after the guests have had too much to drink; but you have saved the best till now."

11 This, the first of his miraculous signs, Jesus performed at Cana in Galilee. He thus revealed his glory, and his disciples put their faith in him.

NIV

One of the reasons Jesus intervened in the wedding running out of wine was because His mother INVOLVED Him.

He clearly stated that his time had not yet come yet here we see Him performing His first great miracle.

One of the greatest secrets to receiving from the lord is getting Him involved in your life and then doing as He says. There may be undesired situations you have gotten into because you did not get Him involved in the first place and logically speaking, you do not think He will be willing to get involved right now because you tell yourself things like ‘ I have really messed this one up big time, God is not pleased, I’m on my own’ you may even be getting signals from your spirit that the Holy ghost is not pleased and you will have to suffer the consequences of your actions. Nevertheless, you can still receive an intervention and a miracle from the lord Jesus when you invite Him into the situations and do as He says. No matter how far a matter has gone, it is not too late to get the Lord involved and begin to do what He says. Remember He is a present Help in time of need.

FILLED WITH THE HOLY SPIRIT

LISTEN TO AUDIO

Luke 11:11-13

11 If a son shall ask bread of any of you that is a father, will he give him a stone? or if he ask a fish, will he for a fish give him a serpent?

12 Or if he shall ask an egg, will he offer him a scorpion?

13 If ye then, being evil, know how to give good gifts unto your children: how much more shall your heavenly Father give the Holy Spirit to them that ask him?

KJV

After Reuben gave his life to Christ, he still experienced a great deal of demonic attacks because of his family background and some demonic things he had indirectly involved himself in before he was saved. He knew he was saved but he still witnessed certain demonic attacks and limitations. These all changed when something phenomenal happened to him; he was baptized in the Holy Ghost.

Being baptized in the Holy Ghost is not a Christian luxury or extra benefit, it is a necessity and everyone who wants to live a victorious Christian life needs this. God is willing and happy to give the Holy Spirit to all His children. I want to encourage you to desire a baptism in the Holy Spirit if you haven’t already been baptized. Ask your father in heaven for the infilling of the Holy Spirit because He is our source of spiritual power. This is the same power that gives you victory over sin and the devil. And you will need to constantly walk in the spirit in order to stay victorious

Jesus promptly pointed that the Holy Spirit only comes to those who love Him, obey Him and continue in His love. This also means that a man who plans to sin in the evening will not receive the baptism of the Holy Spirit in the morning

Go into today filled with the Holy Spirit by asking your heavenly father to fill you afresh.

Prayer: Heavenly father. I thank you for your love. I pray that you fill me with your Holy Spirit in

LOOKING UNTO JESUS

LISTEN TO AUDIO

Heb 12:1-2

Therefore we also, since we are surrounded by so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which so easily ensnares us, and let us run with endurance the race that is set before us, 2 looking unto Jesus, the author and finisher of our faith, who for the joy that was set before Him endured the cross, despising the shame, and has sat down at the right hand of the throne of God.

NKJV

In our bible text you are instructed to lay aside every weight and the sin which so easily ensnares you and run with endurance the race that is set before you.

What are weights: weights are things that slow you down as a child of God. They slow you on your path to spiritual progress. You know those weights and I know them. They are things that may not be sins in themselves but may ultimately lead to you committing sins. They are things you do that you know the Spirit of God within is not pleased when you do them, even though you have told yourself that it is not a sin. It could be anything as long as your heart is not right with it.

I must point out at this point that these things are always things that the flesh (the part of you that is not saved and can never be saved) enjoys and love. These things are things that the Spirit (the part of you that was literally born again) does not want.

It could be anger, talking too much, movies, over eating, some company, or whatever you know that you are not where you should be because of its presence in your life.

To be continued…

Prayer: Dear heavenly father, I thank you for your love and grace. I pray lord God that you help me identify and remove every weight in my life, in Jesus name. Amen

HAVE MERCY UPON ME, O GOD

Ps 51:1-3

Have mercy upon me, O God, according to thy lovingkindness: according unto the multitude of thy tender mercies blot out my transgressions.

2 Wash me throughly from mine iniquity, and cleanse me from my sin.

3 For I acknowledge my transgressions: and my sin is ever before me.

KJV

There are certain times that this prayer becomes a necessity for a Christian.

In times when there is an overpowering and subduing in a transgression, in times when there is a true conviction there the mark has been willfully missed; in times of willful disobedience, this cry comes out of the heart of a true son in God’s kingdom.

It is better to fall into the hands of the lord than the hands of His enemies and yours.

For we know that it is only by and through God’s mercy that we survive.

We are empty before Him and can only be filled because of His everlasting mercies.

The mercy of the lord reminds us there is room for any sinner who wants to repent and forsake his sin…there is room at the cross for me.

Prayer: Dear Heavenly father, thank you for your loving kindness and tender mercies. I pray that you show me your unfailing love and fill me with your nature. In Jesus Holy name I pray. Amen

GRACE FOR GRACE

Click to listen to Audio (Right click and save link as to download)

John 1:16-17

16 From the fullness of his grace we have all received one blessing after another. 17 For the law was given through Moses; grace and truth came through Jesus Christ.

NIV

The grace of God is the ability He has given you to live a victorious blessed life on the earth.

There are many Christians who think they are good enough so they do not seem to need any external help from the lord God to make them good. They have limited the work of the lord Jesus Christ by reducing it to a mere set of rules and regulations; They do not know that Jesus has come to give them new life; that they are to be totally under the lordship and government of the lord Jesus Christ in order for them to see His grace at work. They are to do this by depending on Him and not on their works as what gives them access to the presence of God the father.

When we walk under His grace and not under the law (which is opposed to grace), we get to receive the fullness of His blessing and lead a victorious life, but when Christians begin to observe rules and regulations as if those rules will grant them access into God’s presence, that is when they see a scarcity of the manifestation of the blessing.

Go into today determined to live under grace and truth and not under the law. Let the Holy Spirit who is the administrator of God’s grace be your closest companion and best friend.

Prayer: dear heavenly father, I thank you for giving me the Holy spirit to administer your grace in my life.

A discussion with my friend on Grace

John 1:16

And of his fullness have all we received, and grace for grace.

KJV

I had a long discussion yesterday with Ayo my friend, we discussed at length about the grace of God and how grace empowers a Christian to live the victorious life. We agreed that many Christians do not really understand the grace of God because of religion and the deception of the devil.

Grace is the ability that God gives you to live a victorious blessed life that is above sin.

If one lives in law and sin consciousness, that person cannot live in the grace of God.

God chose and ordained you to live a life that is pleasing to Him by depending on Him to do this. You need to remember that the reason why you are made right with God is because of what Jesus Christ has done for you. He is the one who gives us access to the throne of God.

Go into today with the full assurance that you are God’s beloved child and the Spirit of Christ that testifies with your spirit that you are His child dwells within you. Do not let the devil sow any seed of legalism or self confidence in you. You are who you are because of Christ alone.

Prayer: Our dear heavenly father. We thank you for filling us with your grace and making us beneficiaries of your blessings. We pray o lord that we will lead lives that are victorious and glorious as we live and walk in you, in Jesus mighty name. Amen

God has made you a custodian of knowledge and wisdom for your generation. You are the salt of the earth and the light of the world. As long as you are born of God, you are His messenger and men should seek instruction from you. Everyone who is a child of God is a priest; you have direct access to God and you can talk to Him anytime. You can plead to God on the behalf of others. You are God’s representative here on earth. Let the words of your mouth and the meditation of your heart be pleasing to the Holy Spirit who lives within you.

Go into today knowing that you are a representative of the most high God in your current location.

FOR THE LORD IS GOOD pt3

image

Click to listen to Audio (Right click and save link as.. to download)

Ps 100:5

For the Lord is good; His mercy and loving-kindness are everlasting, His faithfulness and truth endure to all generations.

AMP

Why we should recognize that the lord is good is because a working conviction of this truth will be a great gain as we seek to know God more. When it sinks into your spirit that the lord your God is good; it further helps as a filter to discern what God’s word and will is per time. The more of God and His nature you know, the more difficult it will be for you to be tossed to and fro by every wind of doctrine; the cunning and craftiness of men that deceive in the name of God.

There are some people who say they have revelations of Jesus and heaven but tell stories about our lord that only suggest He is not really a good God. They tell stories that present God as a wicked task master; they brought back new laws instead of teaching us about the grace of God (which is opposite of the laws), they never talked about the Holy Spirit or any such essential truth that will help Christians overcome sins and grow. Condemnation characterizes their messages mixed with a feeling that no one can make it (to heaven). They rightfully feel so since they have embarked on a journey to heaven by their own strength and ability to keep the laws they brought. These laws are supposed to be kept in order for them to enter heaven (they seek to enter God’s kingdom and heaven by their own strength and their own wisdom). They do not know that no law they can keep can qualify them for entrance into heaven or even the kingdom of God; that grace which teaches us how to live is what can accomplishes this for us and grace is administered by the Holy Spirit who they rarely mention in their sermons.

When you know God for yourself, you will be convinced that He is good and any message or prophesy that will lead to a contrary deduction is false.

Prayer: Dear heavenly father. I thank you for your love and grace you have given me; I thank you that I get to know you personally as father. I pray that your love will be shed abroad in my heart that I may radiate your goodness to all I come in contact with. In Jesus name I pray. Amen

Ps 100:5

For the Lord is good; His mercy and loving-kindness are everlasting, His faithfulness and truth endure to all generations.

AMP

Do you know how it hurts to be misunderstood and wrongly perceived?

There are many people who live in this world with a mindset that gives room to the notion that God is a hard and tough task master who can never be pleased. They make it look as if there is no way one can please God or be accepted by God.

There is much truth in the reality that God is a judge and this means He is severe. But it is important for you to know that God is essentially good. His severity even reveals His goodness and not the other way round. Being good and being God means He has to judge wickedness in order that righteousness, justice and goodness may be eroded.

There is no doubt that God chooses mercy over justice. He is more lenient than any human being can possibly be. We as His children are to be like that. We are to live lives that glorify Him by being loving and merciful like our father in heaven.

Those who might see God’s grace and mercy as an occasion to continue to displease Him do this because they do not realize that God’s demands are because of our wellbeing and not because of anything He might gain. The more they live in sin, the more they harm themselves by corruption the substance of their spirits.

Prayer: dear heavenly father, I thank you for your goodness and love. I pray you fill me with this nature and a heart of compassion. I thank you for your faithfulness. In Jesus mighty name.

Ps 100:5

For the Lord is good; His mercy and loving-kindness are everlasting, His faithfulness and truth endure to all generations.

AMP

One thing you should never forget about God is that He is good. Our God is a good God; He is a loving and compassionate God. He is always on your side and He cares about you. God is more interested in your progress in life than any other person; He is more interested in your progress than you. Do not be deceived into thinking that God is a wicked God or that He is really is not Good.

In defining goodness as a character virtue there are certain essential attributes that must be present. The first is Love and mercy, the second is kindness, faithfulness and truth. If you are to be like your father in heaven, these attributes cannot be missing in your life.

There are many gods and lords; they are mostly out rightly wicked. Our God who is the only true God is good. He is the reference for defining goodness.

Go into today knowing that the lord your God is good. He wants the very best for you in this life and He will not withhold any good thing from they that love Him.

Prayer: thank you dear lord for being so good to me. I thank you for your mercy and grace. I pray that you help me to be Holy by expressing these attributes of goodness in my life. In Jesus name I pray. Amen

ONE ATTRIBUTE OF WISDOM

Prov 8:8

8 My advice is wholesome.

There is nothing devious or crooked in it.

NLT

I have seen a lot of people claim to be wise when they want to do something shady or tricky. Many people claim to be wise when they cheat or cleverly take what is not theirs.

When a man acts in ways that are devious and crooked, he not being wise but being foolish. The devil who is the deceiver has deceived the world into thinking foolishness is wisdom. God wants His children to know that the true wisdom that comes from Him is wholesome and truthful; there should be nothing devious and crooked about your ways when you are walking in wisdom.

God wants every one of us to walk in wisdom. This kind of wisdom is the type that even astonishes the kingdom of darkness. God’s wisdom will empower you to always be steps ahead of your enemies. You will be literally invincible before them.

Go into today knowing that God’s wisdom within you does not need trickery and crookedness to get ahead. Walk in God’s wisdom as administered by the Holy Ghost.

Prayer: dear lord God, I thank you for your wisdom that you have given me. I pray that you help me walk in more wisdom day by day in Jesus name. Amen

1 Cor 8:5-7

For though there be that are called gods, whether in heaven or in earth, (as there be gods many, and lords many,)

6 But to us there is but one God, the Father, of whom are all things, and we in him; and one Lord Jesus Christ, by whom are all things, and we by him.

7 Howbeit there is not in every man that knowledge: for some with conscience of the idol unto this hour eat it as a thing offered unto an idol; and their conscience being weak is defiled.

After giving your life to Christ and allowing Him to change the way you think, do not let the devil deceive you into thinking the way the world thinks again, he always wants God’s children to think they have less than what God has given them; he always uses the system of the world to deceive others that the world has more to offer. You keep your renewed mind by continuing to be renewed through practicing the word of God.

As a Christian you need to maintain a habit of filling your heart and mind with the word of God because this will serve as a safeguard against the tricks of the devil. Try and practice, meditate, study, listen to God’s word in an atmosphere of prayer.

Jesus has come to set you free from the bondage of the devil and the spiritual lords that have held your family in bondage. When you accept His gospel and give yourself to Him wholly, you then become His responsibility. Nothing will ever happen to you by accident. And even if unpleasant things have happened to you, they will end up working together for your good.

Go into today with a renewed zeal for God’s word and prayer. Let the kingdom of God fill your world and see a greater dimension of the blessing.

Prayer: our dear father. We thank you for giving us this day our daily bread. We pray for those who do not have, that you provide for them. We pray you make us more aware of your presence in our world, in Jesus name. Amen

6 But to us there is but one God, the Father, of whom are all things, and we in him; and one Lord Jesus Christ, by whom are all things, and we by him.

7 Howbeit there is not in every man that knowledge: for some with conscience of the idol unto this hour eat it as a thing offered unto an idol; and their conscience being weak is defiled

Those demonic lords got to be lords because some human beings yielded themselves to them. All the children of those people also were born into that bondage of being under the lordship of a demon that is an idol. There are many Christians who were born under such unfortunate circumstances; they were born into a family controlled by the kingdom of darkness and there was always a spiritual strong man trying resist them in their path to (spiritual) progress.

One of the ways such Christians can break free from bondages is to submit themselves totally to Lord Jesus. They need to give their bodies totally to the lord Jesus as a living sacrifice and allow the lord Jesus to change the way they think. After doing this they can resist the devil; demons, idols and he will flee from them.

James 4:7 says:

Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you.

KJV

Prayer: our heavenly father. We thank you for making me your child and calling me to a kingdom that is most powerful. I pray that you fill me with all knowledge and wisdom I need to walk free of all satanic influences and walk constantly in the light of your Spirit. I pray this in Jesus mighty name. Amen

1 Cor 8:5-7

For though there be that are called gods, whether in heaven or in earth, (as there be gods many, and lords many,)

6 But to us there is but one God, the Father, of whom are all things, and we in him; and one Lord Jesus Christ, by whom are all things, and we by him.

7 Howbeit there is not in every man that knowledge: for some with conscience of the idol unto this hour eat it as a thing offered unto an idol; and their conscience being weak is defiled.

KJV

When a Christian acknowledges an idol or spiritual lord, it means the Christian still thinks they have power but God may have more power than them. I have heard about Christians who still observe demonic rights and take part in demonic rituals for the dead and during certain occasions. Many of them do this because they fear of the power of the idol to which they submit themselves by taking part in those rituals.

The problem began from they still acknowledging that those idols and demons still have power over them. I have even heard of such people saying that they were only giving unto Caesar what was Caesar’s.

Acknowledging that a demon has power is a denial of the power of the spirit of Christ in you as a Christian if acknowledge and do things that proves that you are convinced that that demon has power over him. All power belongs to Jesus; Either Jesus has all power in your world or He has no power in your life.

When Jesus died he told us that “All power is given unto me in heaven and in earth” - Matt 28:18. This means that when you are in His kingdom and He is in you, you get to walk in the reality of this truth and there is no other power that can exist in your world (of influence) except His power.

Prayer: I thank you father for your revelation that I am in your kingdom and that there is no other power relevant enough to control my decisions. I pray that you fill me with grace to walk in the reality of this truth, In Jesus name, Amen

HOW TO WORSHIP GOD

image
Rom 12:1-2
And so, dear brothers and sisters,* I plead with you to give your bodies to God because of all he has done for you. Let them be a living and holy sacrifice—the kind he will find acceptable. This is truly the way to worship him.* 2 Don't copy the behavior and customs of this world, but let God transform you into a new person by changing the way you think. Then you will learn to know God's will for you, which is good and pleasing and perfect.
NLT
God’s will for you is good and pleasing and perfect. It is one that will ultimately please you because God made you and knows what is best for you.
We offer our bodies to God by living our lives according to His word and will. We build our lives around the principles of the kingdom of God. When we do this it means that we will live righteous lives, we will do things that are peaceful and things that make for peace and our lives will be filled with joy that comes from the Holy Ghost.
You need to live with a fundamental mentality that your body is not your own but it belongs to the lord. You need to go about with a Holy Spirit consciousness that make you walk in His presence and completely surrender your body to the lord God. Please do not do things that you know will grieve the Holy Spirit that lives within you.
Prayer: dear heavenly father. I thank you for giving me a body that I can offer you. I ask that you receive my reasonable and humble sacrifice, that it will bring Joy to your heart dear God. In Jesus mighty name I pray. Amen

7 Howbeit there is not in every man that knowledge: for some with conscience of the idol unto this hour eat it as a thing offered unto an idol; and their conscience being weak is defiled.

KJV

The kingdom of God came with light into this world. Anywhere the church of Christ which is the embassy of His kingdom is, there should be such light that darkness becomes irrelevant.

We learn in our bible text that though there be gods and spiritual lords, to us in the kingdom of God there is but one God; the father, the maker of all things. His presence in our lives makes those other gods and spiritual lords irrelevant and completely powerless.

Not all have this knowledge; that all power belongs to the Spirit of Christ who now dwells within them and idols and demons are totally powerless when the Spirit of God lives in them. Many demons are still so powerful in the life of Christians because they still acknowledge those demons.

We are to live a life dominated by a God consciousness and one that does not give any regard to the presence of reality of demons. We do this not because we are ignorant of their existence and devices but because we are more than conquerors over them and we have the light of life within us.

Continues tomorrow…

Prayer: Dear heavenly father. I thank you for giving authority in the name of the lord Jesus. I thank you because I have power over all the powers of the enemy. I pray you give me strength to constantly walk in this reality in Jesus name. Amen

Rom 12:2

2 Don't copy the behavior and customs of this world, but let God transform you into a new person by changing the way you think. Then you will learn to know God's will for you, which is good and pleasing and perfect.

NLT

We were born into this world with its customs and ways. We were born into a world filled with people, the majority of which tend to think in certain ways that might not bring glory to the lord God. The world is a pleasure seeking kingdom; it has self-pleasing customs with a culture characterized by selfishness. The kingdom of God is the kingdom that you are now in if indeed you have been born again. This kingdom is the most powerful kingdom in existence; every citizen of this great kingdom is to be a king and priest. This kingdom is a God pleasing kingdom with a culture characterized by selflessness and Holiness which is the nature of God.

Go into today knowing that you are a citizen of a superior kingdom and that the power of the most high God dwells within you and you are doing exploits for Him in this world. Go into today knowing that the inferior (kingdom of this world) should copy the superior (you who are in the kingdom of God) and not the other way round.

Prayer: dear lord, I thank you for today you have made for me to show forth your praises and populate your kingdom. I pray you bless me with the remembrance of who I am and the power I have everywhere, every time and under every situation. I pray this in Jesus mighty name. Amen

I WILL NEVER LEAVE YOU

I WILL NEVER LEAVE YOU

Heb 13:5

Let your conversation be without covetousness; and be content with such things as ye have: for he hath said, I will never leave thee, nor forsake thee.

KJV

I have come to discover that one of the major reasons money is so powerful is because it provides security; having money means there will be food to eat and water to drink, there will be cloth to wear and ability to pay bills…etc.

There is tendency to be covetous and love money because of the need for all forms of security that money can provide. God does not want this for His children because He is more than money and money can take His place in their hearts. When you have God in your life, it is better than having all the things in this world because He created all things; He wants you to have more than you could ever work for and He doesn’t want your attention to shift away from Him to material things. He wants to remain the center of your heart because that is the best for you.

One of the strongest forces against total trust in the lord is love of money. You use money, you need money, but you cannot afford to love money because loving it means you cannot love God. You cannot serve God and mammon (Luke 16:24). The love of money is the root of all evil.

When one loves money, it means the most important thing in that person’s life is making money and not pleasing and worshiping God; he goes to church because he wants God to open doors of money for him, he prays because he wants God to bless him financially and do other such things… they do all they do because of an inert want for more money.

We are not to be like that as children of God. We are to be different from the world and the most important thing to us as children of God should be pleasing and worshiping God; being in His presence. Remember, He is the ultimate source of security. God will cause a all grace to abound towards you so that in all things you will see His abundance and wisdom such that you can keep your love for Him intact and lead a glorious life here on earth. Remember to make Him your ultimate goal in life and do not stop loving Him beyond all else.

PRAYER: thank you dear father for filling our hearts with your love. We pray that love for money or any other thing will never dominate our hearts; that we will always love you above all else. We pray this in Jesus mighty name. Amen

Matt 18:3-4

And said, Verily I say unto you, Except ye be converted, and become as little children, ye shall not enter into the kingdom of heaven.

4 Whosoever therefore shall humble himself as this little child, the same is greatest in the kingdom of heaven.

KJV

Life has taught us to be very calculative and very ‘responsible’ in order to make it. We grow into responsible people by taking charge of our lives; we don’t leave anything to chance, we plan, strategize and even worry about every high thing or challenge we face. That is how we are…

Jesus tells us to be converted and become as little children in order to enter His kingdom and be great therein. He tells us this because our calculative minds as ‘adults’ will usually tend to limit the lord God in our lives. Our ‘adult’ minds have been trained to work by sight alone but we need a childlike heart in order to walk by faith and not by sight. You need to trust in the lord and obey Him at all times. This is the only way you can walk with Him.

Prayer: Dear heavenly father. I thank you for this glorious day and your word which you have sent to me. I pray that if there is any way my heart is still not childlike before you, that you change my heart and convert me to the nature that is compatible with your will. I pray this dear God, in Jesus mighty name. Amen

Rom 8:1-3

So now there is no condemnation for those who belong to Christ Jesus. 2 And because you belong to him, the power* of the life-giving Spirit has freed you* from the power of sin that leads to death.

NLT

The important question here is ‘do you belong to Christ. Do you have the seal of Christ in you who is the Holy Spirit?’

When you gave your life to Christ Jesus, you were literally transferring the ownership of your life to the lord Jesus Christ. You ultimately became His responsibility. You became a child of God and become free from the bondage of the devil, the world and sin.

When you live with this consciousness, you are living the way you should. You always have a choice whether to walk in the spirit or in the flesh; whether to walk under grace or under the law; whether to live in the new and better covenant or to live in the old ( even though the two are still covenants)

There is always going to be condemnation for those who walk in the flesh; walk under the laws of dos and don’ts. There is no condemnation for those who walk in the spirit; under the grace that teaches us (how)to be God’s children.

Go into today knowing that you belong to Christ and that you can never be condemned but you will judge the angels of darkness that seek to condemn you.

Prayer: Heavenly father. I give you all the praise for your goodness and your love. I ask that you help me walk in a constant awareness of your presence and power in my life, in Jesus name I pray. Amen

Rom 8:15-17

So you have not received a spirit that makes you fearful slaves. Instead, you received God's Spirit when he adopted you as his own children.* Now we call him, "Abba, Father."* 16 For his Spirit joins with our spirit to affirm that we are God's children. 17 And since we are his children, we are his heirs. In fact, together with Christ we are heirs of God's glory. But if we are to share his glory, we must also share his suffering.

NLT

the best thing that can happen to any man is for him to become a child of God. When you received the lord Jesus into your life, you were given the license to come into the household of God and become His child. This license is the Holy spirit. When a man who has received the Holy spirit chooses to obey and walk in the spirit, such a man will successfully migrate to sonship in the household of God, but when a man refuses to be led by the spirit and continues in his former sinful nature, even though he is now born again, such a man will not be a son in the household of God.

If you are born again God has put His spirit within you. Your conscience being the voice of your spirit is a safeguard if your spirit has been regenerated. Whatever it is you do that causes friction in your heart, including sins, are the things that hinder you from reaping the full benefits of a child of God. But if you chose to obey the leading of the spirit, and keep your conscience active and sensitive by not walking contrary to its leading, then you will grow in the kingdom of God.

Prayer: Heavenly father. I give you all the praise for your goodness and your love. I ask that you help me walk in a constant awareness of your presence and power in my life, in Jesus name I pray. Amen

Rom 8:12-14

Therefore, dear brothers and sisters,* you have no obligation to do what your sinful nature urges you to do. 13 For if you live by its dictates, you will die. But if through the power of the Spirit you put to death the deeds of your sinful nature,* you will live. 14 For all who are led by the Spirit of God are children* of God.

NLT

What does God means when he says that anyone who is controlled by the sinful nature will die? God is life and He is the source of all life. Sin is death and that was what the devil introduced to mankind in the Garden of Eden. When a man walks in the flesh; following the dictates of the sinful nature, that man will die spiritually. You must know that this instruction is to those who are already spiritually alive in the Lord Jesus. As you now have this new nature of righteousness in the lord Jesus you are required to walk in it and not in your old nature of sin that you were born with. The more you walk in the new nature, the more the old one fades away.

God’s plan for you is that you walk in His nature which is holiness. This nature is one that yields joy, peace, prosperity, Favor, power, might, wisdom and many more good things.

Go into today with a determination to follow your spiritual nature and abandon your fleshly nature. Walk in the spirit that you may not gratify the lusts of the flesh.

Prayer: Heavenly father. I thank you for your grace and your light you have shown in my heart. I pray that this day I will walk in my new nature as your child. That I will not walk in the flesh for any moment. I pray this in Jesus name. Amen

Rom 8:9-11

9 But you are not controlled by your sinful nature. You are controlled by the Spirit if you have the Spirit of God living in you. (And remember that those who do not have the Spirit of Christ living in them do not belong to him at all.) 10 And Christ lives within you, so even though your body will die because of sin, the Spirit gives you life* because you have been made right with God.

NLT

The spirit that lives in a man controls the man. You were born with a spirit that was sinful in nature and that was why you were born a sinner. When you became born again, it was your spirit that was born again into a new man; born of the Holy Spirit thereby producing the nature of the Holy Spirit (the former was born of flesh). The Holy Spirit therefore dwells in your Spirit and He quickens, controls and strengthens your spirit, mind and physical body so that you can do the will of God.

If you have the Holy Spirit living in you, you cannot be controlled by the sinful nature but by the Spirit.

Many Christians that walk in the flesh usually do this because they have left the Holy Spirit’s control. You cannot afford to do this if you want to live the life of peace and joy in the kingdom of God.

Make up your mind that you will go around with a Holy Spirit consciousness (a God consciousness). Let the words of God dwell in you richly that you may express His nature indeed.

Prayer: Dear Lord God, I thank you for this day. I thank you for your love and mercy. I pray that you fill me with the Holy Spirit that I may walk on the earth as your child. Thank you father for hearing me, I Jesus name I pray. Amen

Rom 8:5-7

Those who are dominated by the sinful nature think about sinful things, but those who are controlled by the Holy Spirit think about things that please the Spirit. 6 So letting your sinful nature control your mind leads to death. But letting the Spirit control your mind leads to life and peace.

NLT

Now that you are born again, You have two natures. Before you were born again, you had one nature which was the sinful nature; this nature is the reason why nobody needed to teach you how to lie or commit any sin. But you now have the nature of the Holy Spirit who now dwells within your heart.

You now get to choose the nature you will walk in, whether the sinful nature that may look appealing but leads to death or the Spirit’s nature that leads to eternal life in this world and in the world to come.

There are several reasons why many Christians let their sinful nature control them instead of letting the other nature they have to control them. One of these reasons may be that they do not know how to let their other nature which is the nature of the Holy Spirit control them. Some others are deceived into thinking that they have only one nature and this nature is the nature of the spirit, therefore when they see the evidences or even the vestiges of the sinful nature appear, they get condemnation in their hearts plus guilty conscience which interfaces you with the sinful nature.

You need to know first of all that you have a new nature even though the nature of sin you had may seem very easy to switch into because you were born in that nature and you may have probably spent more time exploring it, but as you walk more in the spirit, it will be harder for you to go back there.

We must also point out that walking under the laws of dos and don’ts is a sign of the sinful nature, but walking under grace is a sign of the Spirit’s nature.

Walking under grace means that your relationship with God is not like master and slave but like father and son. ‘For we have not received the spirit of fear but the spirit of children’ (paraphrased Romans 8:15). This means that you do not depend on rules to have a relationship with God but His Spirit who gives you His nature.

Prayer: My father who art in heaven. I thank you for adopting me into your family. I pray that you fill me with your nature that I may have a good relationship with you. Thank you father for hearing me, In Jesus mighty name. Amen

ADVANCING IN THE KINGDOM OF HEAVEN

Matt 11:12

And from the days of John the Baptist until now the kingdom of heaven suffereth violence, and the violent take it by force.

KJV

The Abrahams found a huge rat in their master bedroom. It really perturbed them because they wondered how it got there in the first place; It must have been when the carpenter came to work and left the back door open’ Helen said. it was quite troubling for them because they couldn’t help but wonder what else might have crawled into the house. They did all they knew to get rid of the rat. They eventually decided to give it rat poison- this killed the rat and they got rid of its carcass.

So many times we have situations that make us remember that there are unwanted visitors that would come uninvited. There are habits that could come because we were not guarding against them. What do we do in such situations? We take strong measures until we see the stranger gone. Many times, Christians take such measures against physical enmity but fail to do so against spiritual enmity.

If there is a new habit in your life that is not in agreement with your new nature as a child of God, do as the Abrahams did. Do not rest until the stranger is gone. This is what being violent is all about, It begins with you; you have to be hard on yourself to grow.

The best way to do away with besetting sins, impulsive habits that are sinful or any such thing is to face it head on. You may need to seek help from your pastor or someone you trust. You may need to pray long and even fast. Whatever it is, do all you can till you see that stranger go away.

The greatest poison I know against such strangers is to soak yourself in the un adulterated word from God.

Go into today with filling your heart with the word of God under and atmosphere of prayer. This is a sure way to poison an unwanted guest in your life.

Prayer: heavenly father, I give you all the praise and glories for all that you have for me. I praise you for giving another chance to partake in your kingdom. I pray you give me the strength to grow in the kingdom. In Jesus name I pray. Amen

The name of Jesus is not Just a name that He has, the name of Jesus is the seal of authority that His personality commands.

When we talk about the name of the lord we are talking about who He really is. The integrity of a person is reflected in His name.

‘The name of the lord is a strong tower, the righteous runs into it and is safe. The only people that get to utilize the name of the lord are the righteous. The righteous are those who have faith in the name of the lord and who are under the authority of that name.

When you are under the authority of the name of the lord (which is when you are under the authority of the lord), like peter and John, you will be able to utilize the power in that name to perform miracles. Like the psalmist, you will be able to find help in the name of the lord.

Go into today under the authority of God’s glorious name and let the power of God ooze out through you.

THE BLESSING OF THE LORD

Prov 10:22

The blessing of the Lord makes one rich,

And He adds no sorrow with it.

NKJV

The story is told of a man who went to the occult realm to get wealth, he was really rich, but he never had peace because he was given a condition that in order to stay rich, he must sacrifice the life of someone close to him periodically. He was hunted by ghosts in his dreams, he was a troubled man totally void of peace…

There are several spirits other than God that can bless; these spirits are evil spirits and this means they are fundamentally evil, so when such spirits bless people, they unfailingly add sorrow with their blessing.

People who join cults in order to stay on top in their careers, in entertainment or any other endeavor of life are also in this category of those who are blessed with sorrows added. The sorrow added will eventually make the blessing a curse.

The Spirit of the lord is the only Spirit who blesses and adds no sorrow; He is the original blessing giver.

If you are a child of God, you need to know that you are a recipient of the blessing of the Lord. One thing about blessing is that it is a spiritual thing; the evidences are worked out physically when the enabling physical things are done. For example, if you have a specific blessing to be a very successful business man because that is your destiny in God, and then you never venture into any business, you may never know that you have been blessed?

Go into today knowing that God has blessed you with every spiritual blessing in heavenly places. You can plug into any one you want in earthly places.

Prayer: Dear heavenly father. I thank you for blessing me with all blessings. I thank you that I can be whatever you say I can be. I commit my life unto your hands and I pray you keep me and lead me into all truth. That I will walk in all your plan for my life. I pray all this in Jesus’ Holy name. Amen

I say to you that likewise there will be more joy in heaven over one sinner who repents than over ninety-nine just persons who need no repentance.

NKJV

Lucy the sheep strayed far away from the ranch in search for food. she looked all over the place and could not find her way back, she was hungry, weak and very miserable. She was lost indeed…

We are sheep in the pasture of our lord, and if one sheep strays away, just like Lucy, our lord knows how horrible it will be for him or her. Our lord is so interested in the repentance of a sinner that all of heaven rejoices with Him when one sinner repents.

Anyone who is not saved is not safe because out there is the roaring lion (the devil) seeking who to devour. There are many people in this world who are not saved, there are some of them where you work, school or live. God wants you to be the one through whom salvation will come to those. I don’t know about you but I really want great joy once more in the whole of heaven  because I led a soul to repentance.

Go into today with a determination to bring joy to the heart of your heavenly father who loves you so much; share the gospel with someone; be a witness and let their interaction with you be like an interaction with Christ.

Prayer: father in heaven, I thank you for making me a sheep in your pasture. I thank you that I will not stray away from your watch. I pray that starting from this day, you use more in bring lost sheep to the fold, in Jesus name, Amen

But we are bound to give thanks to God always for you, brethren beloved by the Lord, because God from the beginning chose you for salvation through sanctification by the Spirit and belief in the truth, 1

Your salvation is because of the Holy Spirit who has sanctified you by setting you apart for God’s purpose.

God chose you not because of your good works but because of His love for you. While you were still a sinner, Christ died for you. Now I know how this sounds since you were not even yet born when Christ died, but you need to know that you already existed in the mind of God when Christ died and you, even you were one of whom he died for.

He who believes in this gospel receives adoption into the eternal family of God’s kingdom.

Go into today renewed in your hope because you know God has before ordained you to walk in His good pleasure.
