You Shall Have Whatever You Say

Author: Emode Victor
A Promise For You From Bible Promises:

Topic: You Shall Have Whatever You Say [23/01/2017]

Therefore I say unto you, What things soever ye desire, when ye pray, believe that ye receive them, and ye shall have them. Mark 11:24. Read: Mk 11:22-24

You shall have whatever you declare with your mouth not what others declared to or into your life. Other people's declaration over your life cannot be much effective than what you declare to your life. Your life is in God's hand and your hands. David said, I have put my life in my hand. The Bible says that, there are things that are given to you freely in the spirit realm and those things can only become real or reality when you align yourself in the spirit which can be done with your mouth. You must speak those free things in the spirit realm to the physical or else, they end up in there. Light existed in the spirit realm, but God spoke it to be because it's not met for that realm but physical. David declared to Goliath that he would cut off his head even when he was with sling and stones, but God provided him sword.

Joyce Meyer's daily devotional January 23, 2017 – Be Renewed

Topic: Be Renewed [Monday January 23, 2017]

God selected . . . what the world calls weak to put the strong to shame. And God also selected (deliberately chose) what in the world is lowborn and insignificant and branded and treated with contempt, even the things that are nothing, that He might depose and bring to nothing the things that are, so that no mortal man should [have pretense for glorying and] boast in the presence of God. — 1 Corinthians 1:27-29

If you are weak in faith, in mind, in body, in discipline, in self-control, or in determination, simply wait on God. He will be strong through your weakness.

Memorise: For as the rain cometh down, and the snow from heaven, and returneth not thither, but watereth the earth, and maketh it bring forth and bud, that it may give seed to the sower, and bread to the eater: – Isaiah 55:10

Read: Genesis 15: 5-18 (KJV)

5 And he brought him forth abroad, and said, Look now toward heaven, and tell the stars, if thou be able to number them: and he said unto him, So shall thy seed be.

Let God be first! (3) by Pastor Faith Oyedepo

Topic: Let God be first! (3)

Dear Reader,

I count it a great privilege to share few thoughts with you today. I told you in my first teaching that God’s help is all you need. I, also, showed you how your obedience to God and His Word in all that concerns you can guarantee your exemption from the troubles, woes and calamities that befall others, in our world today. Last week, I taught on God’s requirements for a fulfilled life.

Today, I want to discuss on: Ingratitude towards God. Many homes are where they are today because of ingratitude, murmuring and complaining. Perhaps you have tried many things, yet there seems to be no way out. Why not give thanks to God for keeping you alive and for the privilege of seeing this New Year? Many wish to be alive today, but they are not.

Topic: Grow Up! [Monday January 23, 2017]

Like newborn babies you should crave (thirst for, earnestly desire) the pure (unadulterated) spiritual milk, that by it you may be nurtured and grow unto [completed] salvation. - 1 Peter 2:2, The Amplified Bible

Have you ever been in a room full of babies? Infants crying. Crawlers hollering for certain toys. Toddlers pushing and whining to get their way. It can be quite a handful, can't it?

Billy Graham’s daily devotional January 23, 2017 - Wait Upon the Lord

Topic: Wait Upon the Lord [Monday January 23, 2017]

Glory in the Lord; O worshipers of God, rejoice. Search for him and for his strength, and keep on searching! — Psalm 105:3,4 (TLB)

Jerome, one of the early Christians, said, “Ignorance of the Bible means ignorance of Christ.” Job once said, “I have esteemed the words of his mouth more than my necessary food.” Jeremiah said, “Thy words were found and I did eat them; and thy word was unto me the joy and rejoicing of mine heart.” To read the Bible one needs a “quiet time.” Christian students often ask, “How do you maintain your spiritual high? What do you do on a daily basis?” I tell them about my “quiet time.” Some days it is in the early-sometimes late-morning, sometimes evening.

Our Daily Bread devotional, January 23, 2017 - Lack Nothing

Topic: Lack Nothing [Monday January 23, 2017]

Read: Mark 6:7–12, Bible in a Year: Exodus 7–8; Matthew 15:1–20

God is able to bless you abundantly, so that . . . you will abound in every good work. 2 Corinthians 9:8

Imagine going on a trip without luggage. No basic necessities. No change of clothing. No money or credit cards. Sounds both unwise and terrifying, doesn’t it?

DCLM Daily Manna January 23, 2017 by Pastor Kumuyi – Ward Off His Wrath

Topic: Ward Off His Wrath [Monday January 23, 2017]

Text: 2 Chronicles 19:1-11

Key Verse: "And Jehu the son of Hanani the seer went out to meet him, and said to king Jehoshaphat, Shouldest thou help the ungodly, and love them that hate the LORD? therefore is wrath upon thee from before the LORD" (2 Chronicles 19:2).

It is commonly said that "there is no smoke without fire." Most things that happen to people, especially those that are unpleasant and unfortunate, are not causeless. The Bible rightly says that "As the bird by wandering, as the swallow by flying, so the curse causeless shall not come" (Proverbs 26:2). There are times that some Christians experience things that shouldn’t naturally befall a child of God going by the promises of the Scriptures.

Dunamis’ Daily Devotional January 23, 2017 by Pastor Paul Enenche – The Power of Knowledge

Topic: The Power of Knowledge [Monday January 23, 2017]

Scripture: And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free. John 8:32.

Thought For The Day: Knowledge can make or mar one’s destiny depending on the kind of knowledge.

One of the powers that facilitates the realization of destiny and the fulfilment of God’s purpose for one’s life is the power of knowledge. The power of knowledge cannot be underestimated.

A New Wine For A New Bottle (3) by Pastor Faith Oyedepo

Author: Pastor Faith Oyedepo
Topic: A New Wine For A New Bottle (3)

Dear Reader,

It is a great privilege to share with you from the Word of God. Last week, I shared on: God’s move for the end-time. Today, I will be examining the topic: “The requirement for the New Wine”

What Can I Do To Be A Partaker Of This New Wine?

What can I do to become a new bottle in the hands of God? The Bible says: But new wine must be put into new bottles; and both are preserved” “No man also having drunk old wine straightway desireth new: for he saith, the old is better (Luke 5:39). If you sit down to think about it, you will discover very clearly that there are certain things that vessels who want to become new bottle in the hands of God must be ready to do, in order to partake of this new move. In the course of this teaching, I will mention one of these qualities.

Man Is Not God

A Promise For You From Bible Promises:

Topic: Man Is Not God [22/01/2017]

For we have not an high priest which cannot be touched with the feeling of our infirmities; but was in all points tempted like as we are, yet without sin. Hebrews 4:15. Read: Lk 22:39-46

A man decided to play  the role of God Almighty in a play (film). He sat on the throne to attend to the people one after the other. He discovered that every moment, billions of people troop in with one complaint and another. One would complain of lack, hunger, sickness, anger, pain, frustration, hatred, malice, suicide case, abortion, murder etc. When he couldn't bear it, he stood up and said, I cannot be God again if this is what God Almighty goes through every moment attending to all the complaints of all humans on earth. He walked away from the throne. Man can never be God. God is God forever.

Slack and lack are close neighbours.

Those who trade with slack hand will end in lack. Start your journey with slack and end it in lack.

Joyce Meyer's daily devotional January 22, 2017 – Be a Blessing

Topic: Be a Blessing [Sunday January 22, 2017]

So then, as occasion and opportunity open up to us, let us do good [morally] to all people [not only being useful or profitable to them, but also doing what is for their spiritual good and advantage]. Be mindful to be a blessing, especially to those of the household of faith [those who belong to God's family with you, the believers]. — Galatians 6:10

Our daughter Sandra shared that she was dreading seeing a certain individual because in the past that person had not been very pleasant to her. As she struggled with negative thoughts about the upcoming encounter, God spoke to her heart and said, You don't need to be concerned about how others treat you; your concern should be how you treat them. This message had a strong impact on Sandra's life as well as on mine. How true it is.

DCLM Daily Manna January 22, 2017 by Pastor Kumuyi – Staying In His Love

Topic: Staying In His Love [Sunday January 22, 2017]

Text: John 15:9-17

Key Verse: "If ye keep my commandments, ye shall abide in my love; even as I have kept my Father's commandments, and abide in his love" (John 15:10).

There are times it appears that some people within an organization tend to enjoy the favour and attention of the leader above others within the same group. The reason for this is very simple. It is usually because such people are found to be loyal and obedient. Nothing endears a child to the love and affection of the parents more than obedience and submission.

Kenneth Copeland’s daily devotional January 22, 2017 - Live Like Jesus

Topic: Live Like Jesus [Sunday January 22, 2017]

But [Christ Jesus] made himself of no reputation, and took upon him the form of a servant, and was made in the likeness of men. - Philippians 2:7

The truth of this verse hasn't really dawned on most people. They mistakenly think that Jesus was able to work wonders, to perform miracles and to live above sin because He had divine powers that we don't have. Thus, they have never really aspired to live like He lived.

Our Daily Bread devotional, January 22, 2017 - God’s Face

Topic: God’s Face [Sunday January 22, 2017]

Read: 2 Corinthians 4:4–15, Bible in a Year: Exodus 4–6; Matthew 14:22–36

For God . . . made his light shine in our hearts to give us the light of the knowledge of God’s glory displayed in the face of Christ. 2 Corinthians 4:6

Much of my career as a writer has revolved around the problem of pain. I return again and again to the same questions, as if fingering an old wound that never quite heals. I hear from readers of my books, and their anguished stories give human faces to my doubts. I remember a youth pastor calling me after he had learned that his wife and baby daughter were dying of AIDS because of a tainted blood transfusion. “How can I talk to my youth group about a loving God?” he asked.

Billy Graham’s daily devotional January 22, 2017 - Angels Around Us

Topic: Angels Around Us [Sunday January 22, 2017]

But the angel of the Lord by night opened the prison doors, and brought them forth . . .  — Acts 5:19

Demonic activity and Satan worship are on the increase in all parts of the world. The devil is at work more than at any other time. The Bible says that because he realizes his time is short, Satan’s activity will increase. But his evil activities are countered for the people of God by His ministering spirits, the holy ones of the angelic order. Christians should never fail to sense the operation of angelic glory. It forever eclipses the world of demonic powers, as the sun does a candle’s light. If you are a believer, expect powerful angels to accompany you in your life experiences. And let those events dramatically illustrate the friendly presence of “the holy ones” as Daniel calls them. Certainly, the eye of faith sees many evidences of the supernatural display of God’s power and glory. God is still in business.

Dunamis’ Daily Devotional January 22, 2017 by Pastor Paul Enenche – Created To Be In Partnership with God

Topic: Created To Be In Partnership with God [Sunday January 22, 2017]

Scripture: And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth. Genesis 1:26.

Thought For The Day: One of the greatest privileges on earth is the privilege of being used by God.

The primary reason God created us is to fulfil His purpose on earth by establishing His Dominion, Rulership and Authority on the earth according to our anchor scripture. One of the greatest privileges on earth is the privilege of being used by God. It is exciting to partner with God to fulfil His purpose on earth. So, fulfilling God’s purpose is a privilege.
