1 Corinthians 2:14 (NET)
The unbeliever does not receive the things of the Spirit of God, for they are foolishness to him. And he cannot understand them, because they are spiritually discerned.

Daramola observed that many things they taught in the church didn’t make too much sense to him. Even though he was born into a Christian family, he did not understand how a person would live for a kingdom that they cannot see. As far as he was concerned, life was about making as much money as possible and enjoying the money.

One of the first things that happened to him when he became born again was that it became clearer and clearer to him how empty and vain worldly possessions really were. They could no longer satisfy him, and unlike before when he sought to get satisfaction by seeking more of them, he now understood that the material things of this world didn’t have the ability to satisfy. He didn’t have this wisdom before. He kept running after more and more, and was never really satisfied (Eccl 1:12).

Daramola came to realize that the solution to the thirst and hunger in his soul was only found in Christ. For the first time in his life, he found rest for his soul (see Matt 11:29). He was no more seeking to be validated by things and people; he knew he was accepted and loved by Almighty God (Eph 1:6).

If you notice that the things of the Spirit of God are beginning to look less important to you, it is an indication that your faith is under attack. You may want to spend more time in prayer and be more careful about the persons you spend much of your time with (see 2 Cor 6:14). Unbelief is a spiritually contagious disease.

Go into today remembering that as believers, we are kingdom agents who live for the advancement of God’s kingdom. Everything else comes second (see Matt 6:33).

1 Corinthians 2:12-13 (NKJV)
Now we have received, not the spirit of the world, but the Spirit who is from God, that we might know the things that have been freely given to us by God.
These things we also speak, not in words which man's wisdom teaches but which the Holy Spirit teaches, comparing spiritual things with spiritual.

Computers can control very many external devices like printers, joysticks, speakers, scanners, etc. But for this to happen, their respective drivers must first be installed in the operating system of the computer. This is what gives the computer knowledge about the hardware and enables it to use the hardware.

When a hardware driver is installed, it informs the computer about the hardware and enables it to use the hardware. No matter how new and perfect the hardware you connect to a computer is, if the driver software is not installed, the computer would not be able to recognize and use it.

No matter what we have been freely given by God, if we do not receive knowledge and empowerment from the Holy Spirit, we would not be able to use them. If we only have mental knowledge of these things, we are unable to utilize them and walk in them. The kind of knowledge given by the Holy Spirit doesn’t just inform, it empowers.

You may know that ‘by His stripes, you are healed,’ but when the Holy Spirit furnishes that knowledge in your heart, it will empower you to walk in that reality.

Go into today remembering that the knowledge furnished by the Holy Spirit does not just help you know the things freely given to you by God, it helps you receive them.

Prayer: Lord, help me to know and receive all your gifts by the Spirit. Amen.
—SD Abraham

1 Corinthians 2:12 (NET)
Now we have not received the spirit of the world, but the Spirit who is from God, so that we may know the things that are freely given to us by God.

After Ugochukwu became baptized in the Holy Spirit, he realized that he had more power within him to do the things of God. Prayer became much easier and he could now pray for much longer. He had always desired to pray longer each day because he understood that that was the secret of walking in great supernatural power, but he did not have the ability to pray long until he became baptized in the Holy Spirit.

Ugochukwu became bolder and was now able to share the gospel with people he used to be too shy to share the gospel with. He also observed that when he now read the Bible, he understood it. There were now many things that he just now understood in his heart that he didn’t understand before. He also observed that he now understood the fear of the Lord and saw how it was the beginning of wisdom.

I have met Christians who underestimate the importance of spiritual knowledge and wisdom because they are more interested in spiritual power. What they do not understand is that great power can only be revealed because of the right knowledge, and knowledge is power.

One kind of knowledge that the Holy Spirit brings is what I call native knowledge. It is like the kind of knowledge that a lion has and it knows that it is to roar and rule. Without this native knowledge, no matter how potentially power the animal is, it would never utilize this power.

Go into today thanking the Lord for the privilege to have the indwelling Holy Spirit.
Prayer: Lord, fill me with all spiritual wisdom and understanding (pray with Col 1:9-10).

WHAT IS MAN?

1 Corinthians 2:11 (NET)
For who among men knows the things of a man except the man’s spirit within him? So too, no one knows the things of God except the Spirit of God.

The word Bârâ in Hebrew means to create something out of nothing. It was only used twice in the whole account of creation. It was used when Genesis reported that the heavens and the earth were created (Gen 1:1), and when Genesis reported that man was created (Gen 1:27). Everything else was made (not created) out of something already existing.

That says a lot about the value God places on man.

In today’s Bible verse, why would the Holy Spirit (through Paul) compare the way the human spirit operates in man with the way the Holy Spirit operates in the Godhead? It is because man was created not just in the image of God, but also in the likeness of God. God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit are three different persons that agree in one (1 John 5:7-8). It wasn’t the decision of one of them to create man; it wasn’t just the decision of the Lord God (Jehovah) --who is the second person of the Godhead, and the pre-incarnate Jesus. It wasn’t just the decision of the Holy Spirit who was exclusively the one who hovered over the face of the deep before the earth was formed. It was the decision of the plurality of the Godhead to make man. Thus, it says ‘let us make man in our image’.

That is why Jesus who is God become flesh was described in this way. ‘For in him all the fullness of the Godhead dwells bodily’ (Col 2:9). This is because He became a man created in the image of the Godhead.

Go into today thanking God for the privilege to know Him in a way that angels cannot because we were created in a way that makes it possible for us to know and fellowship with all of the Godhead.

Romans 8:6-9 (NET)
For the outlook of the flesh is death, but the outlook of the Spirit is life and peace,
because the outlook of the flesh is hostile to God, for it does not submit to the law of God, nor is it able to do so.
Those who are in the flesh cannot please God.
You, however, are not in the flesh but in the Spirit, if indeed the Spirit of God lives in you. Now if anyone does not have the Spirit of Christ, this person does not belong to him.


When Ugochukwu became born again, he realized that he was no longer comfortable with the things he used to do as an unbeliever. No one told him when he deleted most of the unwholesome videos on his phone. He just knew keeping was wrong and dangerous to his new life in Christ. He also knew that the songs he had were no longer appropriate for him, so he deleted all the songs on his phone and laptop. He had a girlfriend and they were deeply in love, but he knew that the foundation and everything about that relationship was sin, so he called off the relationship.

Ugochukwu did all these because the Spirit of God was now within him and he yielded to the leading of the Spirit. He was told by the person who led him to Christ that yielding to the Holy Spirit is the only way to live this new born-again life.

One of the major things the Spirit of God will do within a believer is to change his outlook to life from that of the flesh to that of the Spirit. Every human being was born with the outlook of the flesh and lives to please himself. But when you become born again, by the word of God and the Spirit of God, that outlook is changed to one that seeks to please God.

1 Corinthians 2:9-10 (NKJV) 
But as it is written: "Eye has not seen, nor ear heard, Nor have entered into the heart of man The things which God has prepared for those who love Him."
But God has revealed them to us through His Spirit. For the Spirit searches all things, yes, the deep things of God.

When Laide was going through the challenges she faced as a student on campus, she almost lost all hope and gave up. But what kept her going was the word of God and the Holy Spirit.
One way the Holy Spirit comforts us is by revealing things to us that will comfort us. The things He reveals to us are the basis of our hope and tokens of God’s love for us. They do not only span things in time, but they cover things in eternity that God has purposed for us.

An unrenewed mind does not have the ability to decode and understand the things revealed to his spirit by the Spirit of God. Those who are spiritually mature are those whose minds have been renewed to conform to the mind of Christ. The fact that you are born again does not mean you have a renewed inner man. The new man you have put on needs renewal through the knowledge of the word (see Col 3:9-10).


Go into today knowing that spiritual maturity is through the renewal of your mind by the word of God and by prayer. It is only a renewed mind that can understand the things the spirit reveals--things that the natural human mind cannot comprehend.
prayer: Ask the Lord to help you always walk in the newness of the mind.

1 Corinthians 2:8 (NET)
None of the rulers of this age understood it. If they had known it, they would not have crucified the Lord of glory.

When Laide got into medical school, she was the best student in her class and all things appeared to be moving very smoothly for her. But when she became born again, it appeared that all hell broke loose against her. She was confused because she thought being born again meant that things were even going to get better.

As she chose to wait on the Lord despite the many challenges she was now facing, she was developing spiritual capacity and might. She grew in her knowledge of the Lord and became a person of high esteem in heaven.

This was why when she eventually became a medical doctor, she used to pray for her sick patients and get them healed of incurable illnesses. Many patients that would have died were healed because of her. She had a reputation in the hospital as the doctor who solves the most difficult and hopeless conditions. Cancers disappeared under her ministrations. Many very influential people in society came to the Lord through her because they were once her patients.

It takes the wisdom of God to know the counsel of God and understand what God is doing and how He is doing it per time. One thing we shouldn’t forget is that the rulers of the darkness of this world cannot decipher what God is doing in the world and in your life per time. They can only speculate and discover as it is unraveled.

Just like they did in the case of Jesus and unknowingly facilitated the agenda of God by crucifying Him, the worst they can do against a person under his lordship will end up facilitating God’s agenda.

Go into today remembering that as long as you are under the Lordship of Christ, the worst that the kingdom of darkness can do against you will ultimately work out for good.

1 Corinthians 2:7 (NKJV)
But we speak the wisdom of God in a mystery, the hidden wisdom which God ordained before the ages for our glory

A certain wealthy man traveled for a very long time. He left a great wonderful estate for his children. This estate was filled with all kinds of great and wonderful machines that were designed to do all kinds of great and wonderful things for his children. But by the time he traveled, his children were still too young so they could not read the manual that would help them utilize the house and machines. They would have to grow up and learn how to read before they can possess their possessions. The wealthy man engaged a teacher who would help his children through this.

There were all kinds of smart domestic animals in the estate, but no matter how smart the animals became, and no matter how old they grew, they could never read and understand the manual because it was written in a language higher than their comprehension.

The wisdom of God is encrypted in a code that only and He and His children can decode. It is only the mature, those schooled by the Spirit of God and transformed into the image of Christ, that will be able to decode this mystery. That is why it is through the Church that the manifold wisdom of God will be shown to principalities(smart animals) and powers (Eph 3:10). It is by this wisdom that we walk in the power and glory of God. It is by this wisdom that things are created and sustained (Prov 3:19, Jer 10:12).

Go into today remembering that as a believer in Christ, it is your heritage to walk in God’s wisdom as you submit to the educational system of the Holy Spirit who is our teacher. Thank God for this privilege.

1 Corinthians 2:6 (NET) 
Now we do speak wisdom among the mature, but not a wisdom of this age or of the rulers of this age, who are perishing.

I have observed over the years as Streamglobe Devotional has grown is that the pattern and the way the Holy Spirit has led us to edit the devotionals have changed as the number of people reading it increased. When the readers were relatively few and mostly more mature believers, the devotionals had fever stories, were longer in length and were packed with deeper spiritual wisdom --strong spiritual meat. But I have noticed that as the number of readers greatly increased, and many of them new believers and babes in the faith, the Holy Spirit has directed us to feed His lambs with more basic truths.

When Apostle Paul taught the Corinthians, he could only teach them the rudiments of the faith. He could not go further into the deep things of spiritual wisdom and revelation because they did not have the capacity to understand them as spiritual babes.

When deep spiritual wisdom is spoken among the immature, it profits nothing, and may even cause a loss. It is just like force-feeding babies with solid food and strong meat. But when wisdom is spoken among the mature, they have the ability to understand it and become more fruitful thereby.

The church is not a club for the spiritual babes nor is it one for the spiritually mature alone. It is a place where you will find a mix of both the mature and the babes. It is, therefore, wrong to always feed the people with spiritual food meant for only one category of the Lord’s fold.


Go into today remembering that as you are yielded to the Holy Spirit, He will guide you into the right things to teach to the right people. He will also guide your understanding of the words that you hear.

THE MIND OF A TRUE APOSTLE 2



1 Corinthians 2:4-5 (NET) 
My conversation and my preaching were not with persuasive words of wisdom, but with a demonstration of the Spirit and of power, so that your faith would not be based on human wisdom but on the power of God.

We saw earlier that one reason Paul chose to abide with the Corinthians in ‘weakness, fear and trembling’(1 Cor 2:3) was because he did everything possible to make them understand that he was an ordinary human being like them, even though he did very many superhuman things. He did this because he wanted them to put their trust in the Lord Jesus alone when they saw the demonstration of the spirit and power of God. If he didn’t do this, there was the possibility that their trust will also be on him because of the superhuman things that he did.

For this same reason, Apostle Paul chose not to preach to them with persuasive words of human wisdom, but with the demonstration of the Spirit and power of God.  He was introducing the people to Jesus by showing them His power. They believed in Jesus because they saw proof of His existence and superiority. Even though the Corinthians were in a society where the manifestation of supernatural power was common, the power of God (as it always does) proved itself to be superior, and this brought them to submit to Christ as Lord.

Apart from the fact that the words that Apostle Paul spoke were loaded with power that caused people to be convicted and repent, this power also caused miracles and wonders to happen.
Go into today asking the Lord to fill you with the power and make you an able minister of the new testament.

1 Corinthians 2:4-5 (NET)
My conversation and my preaching were not with persuasive words of wisdom, but with a demonstration of the Spirit and of power, so that your faith would not be based on human wisdom but on the power of God.

It is on record that when Billy Graham traveled long hours to preach, he spent most of the time praying. It is also on record that his words were not empty words, but they were packed with the power of God to convict people and draw them to salvation.

Note that Paul said my conversation and preaching were not with persuasive words of human wisdom. So he preached with words, but the purpose of his words was not primarily to persuade or wow people, it was to transmit spirit and power. Words can transmit knowledge and wisdom and that is the most common application of words. But words can also be used to transmit spirit and life (power). This was the way Jesus used His words when He preached. He said the words that I speak to you are spirit and life (see John 6:63). Those who listened to Jesus said no one ever spoke the way He spoke because the effect of His speaking was different from what they were used to (see John 7:46, Luke 24:32). The way Jesus spoke and preached should also be the way we speak and preach because as the Father sent Him, so has He sent us (John 20:21). We must use our words primarily to transmit spirit and life when preaching.

Go into today knowing that before your words can transmit power, you have to be full of power yourself. Those who walk in this dimension are people of prayer. Prayer is the surest way to make much power available (see James 5:16).

1 Corinthians 2:4-5 (NET) 
My conversation and my preaching were not with persuasive words of wisdom, but with a demonstration of the Spirit and of power,
so that your faith would not be based on human wisdom but on the power of God.

Feyi had come out for alter call to become born again, and attended discipleship class afterward. He believed he was born again, but there were certain sins that he easily fell into, and fell one time too many. At a given point, he was tired of the rising and falling and cried to God to help him live a holy life.

He saw a video on Facebook about the gospel message. The first point the preacher made was that ‘if a person is born again, it means he has accepted Jesus as his Lord’. The preacher went on to explain the meaning of the word Lord. He explained how those who believe in Jesus must be submitted to His authority. Feyi never knew this before. Jesus was not yet the Lord of his life, he (Feyi) was the still the Lord of his life. After watching the video, Feyi confessed Jesus as his lord and master, and he realized that after submitting to the Lord, he felt the power and dominion of the Holy Spirit like never before. That was the end of his struggle with sin.

No one can confess that Jesus is Lord except by the Holy Spirit (1 Cor 12:3). Many people in church today do not enjoy the grace of God supplied by the Holy Spirit because they are not yet submitted to the authority of the Lord Jesus.
Go into today remembering that being a believer means you have submitted to the authority and government of the Lord Jesus. His government (the kingdom of God) will regulate every area of your life.

1 Corinthians 2:3-4 (NKJV) 
I was with you in weakness, in fear, and in much trembling.
And my speech and my preaching were not with persuasive words of human wisdom, but in demonstration of the Spirit and of power


If you read the verses above, they may appear contradictory at first. Apostle Paul talks here about being with the Corinthians in weakness and much trembling, and yet in the same breath, he is talking about demonstrating the spirit and power of God.

‘I was with you in weakness and much trembling’. What does this mean?
This means Paul made it very clear to everyone that he was just an ordinary human being like them. He refused to elevate himself to superhuman status even though he did very many superhuman things.

For example, there was a time some of the people he preached to in Lystra wanted to begin worshiping him as a god (Acts 14:14). He tore his clothes and revealed his flesh just to make it clear to them that he was an ordinary human being like them.
 I can imagine that happening to some ministers today. They would sit on the throne offered to them and say something like 'after all, the scriptures say we are gods. We even have more authority than these idols they are claiming we are'. Such ministers can never raise disciples who will grow from being spiritual babes.

Because Paul made it clear to the people that he was a mortal human like them, when they saw the manifestation of the Spirit and power of God, they knew it wasn't Paul working but Christ working through Paul. Therefore, their faith was in Christ and not in Paul.

Go into today remembering that when people have their faith divided between men and God, they will not be able to grow in their knowledge of God. The Corinthian believers remained babes because of this very reason. Some said I am of Paul, others Apollos, etc. (see 1 Cor 3:1-4).

1 Corinthians 2:1-2 (NKJV)
And I, brethren, when I came to you, did not come with excellence of speech or of wisdom declaring to you the testimony of God.
For I determined not to know anything among you except Jesus Christ and Him crucified.


Apostle Paul went to Corinth with one purpose. He went to preach the undiluted gospel of Christ Jesus to them.

All Paul preached was Christ and Him crucified. What does this mean?

In Mathew 16:16, it was remarkable when Peter revealed that Jesus was the Christ-- the Son of the living God. This is the meat and the center of the gospel message. Implicit in this truth is the fact that Jesus is Lord and everyone should submit to Him. This is the gospel that Jesus and His disciples preached even before Jesus died on the cross (Matt 4:23).

The reason the Jews killed Jesus was because of this claim that He is the Son of God. As proof that Jesus and His disciples were not lying about His identity, God raised Jesus from the dead after the third day. This is the reason why today, the preaching of the gospel will always include the fact that Jesus resurrected-- it is God’s undeniable proof that Jesus is indeed Lord and Christ.

This was what Paul preached. He preached that Jesus is the Christ. He was crucified (for our sins) and resurrected from the dead after the third day. Those who believed this were the ones who received salvation.

As Romans 10:9 points out, anyone who truly believes that God raised Jesus from the dead believes and confesses that Jesus is Lord (the Messiah, the Christ) because Jesus's resurrection is proof that He is Lord.

Go into today remembering that what it means to be a believer is to believe and accept Christ Jesus as Lord. This means you submit to Him and let Him rule your life.

1 Corinthians 1:30-31 (NKJV) 
But of Him you are in Christ Jesus, who became for us wisdom from God--and righteousness and sanctification and redemption-- that, as it is written, "He who glories, let him glory in the Lord."

Before Ogundare became a believer, he had gone very far in the occult and was exposed to the depths of darkness.
He had a business competition with a believer and decided to take the battle to the spirit realm so that he would have the upper hand. This was when he discovered that God was eternity’s Holy King, and Christians are indeed God’s children that He watches jealously. What made Ogundare become a believer was his realization that Christians had access to a relationship with this God.

Because he understood spiritual things and spiritual protocols, he wondered how it was possible for ordinary mortal human beings to have a relationship with such a Holy and great God. Even great spirits could not attain to this standard. He understood that relationship with spiritual dignitaries required spiritual wisdom, and he knew that ordinary human beings could never possess the wisdom required to relate to almighty God. He later discovered that Jesus was made the wisdom of God for us, and it is through Him and because of Him that we have a relationship with God.

There are four major requirements for having a relationship with Almighty God, and they are mentioned in today's Bible verses. They are redemption, sanctification, righteousness, and [spiritual] wisdom. We as sinful mortal beings could never attain to these. Christ Jesus has become these for us [who believe in Him], that is why we are able to have a relationship with God. This is the reason why no one who truly knows God can take credit for it. He will always be grateful to Jesus.

 Go into today thanking the Lord for being the reason you have a relationship with Almighty God.

John 8:12 (AMP)
Once more Jesus addressed the crowd. He said, “ I am the Light of the world. He who follows Me will not walk in the darkness, but will have the Light of life.”

After it rained one evening, I watched in amazement how so many moths danced around a street light. They all were drawn to it as if their lives depended on it. I, therefore, decided to search out the reason why, but to my surprise, it still remains a mystery, as no finite answer has been given for this phenomenon.

Unlike the moth, we have a clear reason for following Jesus. In Him is light and His light is what gives us life (Jn 1:4). Unfortunately, many are no longer attracted to The Light. We must ask ourselves: Is being a follower of Jesus still attractive to us, and is the gospel still exciting to us just like when we first heard it?

Also, our attraction to Jesus must not just be for only certain aspects of our lives but must be for all aspects. If a house has its rooms lit up at night but remains dark in the kitchen or bathroom areas, wouldn't there still remain the potential for someone to stumble and get hurt? Every room in our lives must be illuminated by the Word (Col 3:16).

Summarily, in upholding our salvation, we must remain attracted to Jesus (1Cor 15:2, 1Jn 2:28). As we grow in Him, it is our responsibility, concerning every dark situation we desire to change, to take the light of His Word and apply it till all around us is bright (Pro 4:18).

Go into today walking in the light of His Word and as you do so, you will not stumble (Ps 119:105).

1 Corinthians 1:28-29 (NET) 
God chose what is low and despised in the world, what is regarded as nothing, to set aside what is regarded as something, so that no one can boast in his presence.

When Terna was a teenager, he used to hear the message of the gospel but he ignored it because he wanted to enjoy his life and the gospel looked like something that would deny him this enjoyment. He was a very adventurous person and liked trying new things out.

By the time he was 35 years old, he had been worn out and weary of ’enjoying life’. Many things had happened to him, his marriage was broken, he started having certain health challenges, and his heart was filled with hatred and anger. Two days after his wife left him, he was scrolling through some channels on the TV and he heard a preacher inviting the viewers to accept the Lord Jesus Christ. At this point in his life, he was now wary and burdened, he now remembered that there was peace and joy in Christ because he had heard the gospel all his life. He was now ready to accept the Lord Jesus.

You see, in order for a person to receive the gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ, they have to first acknowledge their need for God. Many times, a physical or material need reveals this need faster, and that is why the gospel is preached to the poor (Luke 4:18, Matt 11:15). Everyone needs the gospel, but not everyone knows that they need the gospel until a need they can understand reveals their spiritual poverty.

God loves to save those who are the lowest and most despised because through their lives, He manifests His superior power. He alone can make something out of nothing.

Go into today remembering that when the Lord saves the despised and downtrodden, he makes them into great people both in time and in eternity.

1 Corinthians 1:26-27 (NET)
Think about the circumstances of your call, brothers and sisters. Not many were wise by human standards, not many were powerful, not many were born to a privileged position.
But God chose what the world thinks foolish to shame the wise, and God chose what the world thinks weak to shame the strong.


Many of the Corinthian believers believed because they needed the Lord to solve their physical and material problems. Some of them were really poor and needy. They saw the demonstration of the spirit and power of God when the gospel was preached and this attracted them to receive the gospel(1 Cor 2:4).

Many people who eventually became born again came to the Lord because of their needs and wants. Some wanted the Lord to heal them or heal a loved one, and then they believed because they saw the Lord’s healing power. Others were in really tight situations of lack and want, and they needed the help of the Lord- and this drew them to the Lord. The unfortunate thing is that some people do not grow above that realm of needs-propelled faith without a desire for a relationship with the Lord God, and this is indeed the realm of spiritual babes.

God loves to choose the weaker and rejected ones in order for Him to use them to show forth His glory and power. Abraham and Sarah found it impossible to have children, but Abraham was the one the Lord chose to be the patriarch of His firstborn nation.

Go into today remembering that just as it is impossible for a person to receive the gospel unless he acknowledges his need for the Lord, it is impossible for God to use those who are proud and puffed up for His good works because He resists the proud. Those who receive His grace are those who are humble enough to look up to Him (James 4:6).

1 Corinthians 14:15 (KJV)
What is it then? I will pray with the spirit, and I will pray with the understanding also: I will sing with the spirit, and I will sing with the understanding also.

Prior to praying in the Spirit, Daniel would pray only in his understanding. Most times he prayed he would find himself drifting in thought while praying. This situation continued until one day he attended an impartation service and got baptized in the Holy Ghost with the evidence of speaking in tongues. This spiritual transformation changed his prayer life and made him now be able to pray without losing focus, understand and apply the right scriptures in his prayers, and obtain tremendous answers to his prayers (including for things he couldn't remember asking for).

Praying through can be simply put as effective communication with God. However, due to the inherent infirmity of the flesh and the human mind, there's always that tendency for it to be burdened, afflicted, or distracted by either men or the devil, leading to voided prayers.

God primarily communicates with us by the spirit and not by the flesh. Since our mind's ability to grasp the things of the Spirit is limited, the best way for us to pray through and obtain results is for us to pray in the Spirit (1Cor 2:10-15, 14:2).

Among other things, praying in tongues helps us present our case before God perfectly. It helps us shield our prayers from demonic obstacles and allows us wider coverage without praying amiss (Rom 8:26-27, 1Cor 14:2, Eph 6:18). Doing this consistently enables us to develop our faith to the point where our minds now begin to see the reality of answers (Jud 1:20).

Determine today to pray in tongues. As you do so, the power of God's anointing will cause you to receive answers to your prayers, based on His promises (2Cor 1:20-22).

Proverbs 22:12 (NKJV)
The eyes of the Lord preserve knowledge, But He overthrows the words of the faithless.

As a new believer, Mimi always left the place of prayer feeling very frustrated, as though there was a ceiling preventing her prayers from reaching God. But when she began to build herself up in faith by studying and meditating on God's Word, her resolve in the place of prayer was strengthened and in a short while, she started seeing great results.

One of the surest ways of praying through is praying using God's word. It says in Hosea 14 verse 2 (NASB): Take words with you and return to the Lord. Say to Him, "Take away all iniquity and receive us graciously, that we may present the fruit of our lips". It means we must always take God's word to Him in prayer.

From our scriptural text, lack of knowledge or a deceitful and misinformed use of God's Word is what leads to the frustration of voided prayers. God wants us to have all that He has already provided for us by grace through Christ. He looks to see if we're searching with all our hearts to receive them by faith when we pray (See Jer 29:12-13). It is only by faith that we receive that which grace has made available, and faith comes through the word (Rom 10:17).

Prayer is like a fire that grows. For it to keep burning and consume prayer requests, it needs a constant supply of wood which is the Word. If the wood is small, the fire dies easily (See Lev 6:12-13).

Delve into God's Word today, and as you pray in accordance with His will, you'll experience the joy of answered prayers (1Jn 5:14-15).

1 Samuel 1:15 (NLT)
“Oh no, sir!” she replied. “I haven’t been drinking wine or anything stronger. But I am very discouraged, and I was pouring out my heart to the Lord.


Many wear wristbands having the inscription P.U.S.H, that is, Pray Until Something Happens as part of their prayer slogan. On a closer inspection, it's fast becoming a clich├ę and an avenue to brag about how long or how hard one prays. Though not a bad idea, it should, however, be placed within the right context of coming to God in supplication.

As prerequisites, some have cited location as in Hannah' case, others have cited frequency as in Elijah's case and some others still mark a particular time of the day. However, praying through is not a function of time or place, but it is a function of the heart's motive (Jam 4:3).

The Word of God makes it clear that fervency should not be ignored for effective prayers, but the real subject matter should be the state of one's heart. Is the heart right with God or does it still harbor sin, guilt, doubt, etc.? (1 Thes 5:17, Jam 5:16, Psa 24:3-4, 66:18).

Therefore, in order to pray through, in sincerity, we must pour out or confess from our hearts the Word of truth with respect to any issue of worry, totally putting our trust in Him, without any provision for fleshly options. When we do this, as was the case with Hannah, we will experience peace (1 Sam 1:18, Phil 4:6-7).

Go into today, knowing that as you open up your heart in prayer, persistently focusing on God's truth, you'll soon receive your heart's desire.

1 Corinthians 1:25 (NET)
 For the foolishness of God is wiser than human wisdom, and the weakness of God is stronger than human strength.

Chief Ola was willing to give all his money in order to save his daughter who had a terminal illness. He loved her so much and she meant more to him than all the wealth he had gathered for over thirty years.
As an astute businessman, before he had his daughter, he would have considered the idea of giving away his hard-earned wealth because of a little girl plain foolishness. ‘With all that money, one could marry as many women as he wants and have as many daughters as he wants’ he would think. But love changed him and made him act ‘foolishly’.
Love can make us do things that we normally would not do. It can make us do things that we would otherwise have considered to be foolish.

Today’s Bible verse sounds really strange. It talks about the foolishness of God and the weakness of God. What does this mean? When did the all-wise God act in a way that He could consider foolish or weak?

A lot was put at stake when God became flesh in order to save man. The Lord God, the second person of the Godhead, became flesh and became vulnerable. God became weak and became poor so that we could be made rich (see 2 Cor 8:9).

“What is man, that thou art mindful of him? What are humans that you visit them? You even became lower than the angels in order to redeem them (see Ps 8:4-6, Heb 2:9)? Why not clean up the planet and create a new breed altogether? We know you have the power to do more than that"

But man found grace in the sight of God. God preferred to act ‘foolishly’ and become weak (flesh) in order to save us. That weakness in becoming flesh was still better than human strength. That foolishness paid off. It proved wiser than human wisdom. Today it is bringing many sons to glory. Hallelujah!

Go into today thanking God for His great love for you.
