David Abioye's Daily Devotional June 24, 2017 – It Takes Grace To Run The Race! (Part 2)

Topic: It Takes Grace To Run The Race! (Part 2) [Saturday June 24, 2017]

Our reference scripture says, “…Not many wise men after the flesh, not many mighty, not many noble, are called: But God hath chosen the foolish things of the world to confound the wise…” You have no reason whatsoever to bemoan yourself because the very thing that looks like a handicap or limitation in your life is the very reason God called you. Men may disqualify you, but if God chooses you, your weakness becomes your strength.

Joyce Meyer's daily devotional June 24 2017 – He Will Never Leave Us

Topic: He Will Never Leave Us [Saturday June 24, 2017]

[I will] not in any degree leave you helpless nor forsake nor let [you] down (relax My hold on you)! [Assuredly not!] — Hebrews 13:5

I was born again when I was nine years old. The night I was saved, I had to sneak out of the house to go to church with some relatives who were visiting us because my dad wouldn't have permitted us to go if we had asked. I knew that I went to be saved that night, and I don't even know how I knew that I needed salvation.

Open Heavens 24 June 2017: Saturday daily devotional by Pastor E. A. Adeboye – Consequences of Sin

Topic: Consequences of Sin [Saturday 24, June 2017]

Memorise: The wicked man travaileth with pain all his days, and the number of years is hidden to the oppressor. – Job 15:20

Read: Genesis 3:8-19 (KJV)

8 And they heard the voice of the LORD God walking in the garden in the cool of the day: and Adam and his wife hid themselves from the presence of the LORD God amongst the trees of the garden.

Kenneth Copeland’s daily devotional June 24, 2017 - Don't Tell It Like It Is

Topic: Don't Tell It Like It Is [Saturday June 24, 2017]

Death and life are in the power of the tongue: and they that love it shall eat the fruit thereof. - Proverbs 18:21

Words are serious business. And, as believers, we need to get serious about learning how to use them. We need to begin to put them to work for us like God Himself does. The Bible tells us that He uses words to “call those things which be not as though they were” (Romans 4:17).

Winning Wisdom: Freely Give

Topic: Freely Give [Saturday, 24th June 2017]

Heal the sick, cleanse the lepers, raise the dead, cast out devils: freely ye have received, freely give. Matthew 10:8

It is an established fact that God loves a cheerful giver (2 Corinthian 9:7). But we’ve limited this to relate only to monetary and material giving. It however goes way more than that. It also affects spiritual giving. Now we’ve all been bestowed with spiritual gifts for the advancement of the kingdom of God on earth (1 Corinthians 12:4-6; Matthew 25:15). The mistake some of us make is to hoard the gifts we’ve received for one reason or the other. For some, it is the fear that they may do the wrong thing. If you walk in line with the will of God, and follow His instructions in applying the gifts He has given you, there is no way you will go wrong. Trust God and start working.

Andrew Wommack’s daily devotional June 24, 2017 - It's Who You Know

Topic: It's Who You Know [Saturday June 24, 2017]

John 9:30 "The man answered and said unto them, Why herein is a marvellous thing, that ye know not from whence he is, and yet he hath opened mine eyes."

John 9:28-30

The "acid test" of whether or not someone is of God is by his actions. Jesus' actions were so miraculous and overwhelmingly consistent with God's Word that any reservations about whether or not He was of God should have been set aside. But, as in Mark 7:13, they had exalted their own traditions above God's Word, thereby making the Word of God of no effect in their own lives. Just as in this instance nearly two thousand years ago, theologians today are sometimes the last to accept a move of God if it violates their traditional beliefs. "The common people heard him gladly" (Mk. 12:37). "Knowledge puffeth up, but charity edifieth" (1 Cor. 8:1).

DCLM Daily Manna June 24, 2017 by Pastor Kumuyi – Avoid Being Defiled

Topic: Avoid Being Defiled [Saturday June 24, 2017]

Text: Leviticus 21:1-15

Key Verse: "But he shall not defile himself, being a chief man among his people, to profane himself" (Leviticus 21:4).

There are certain ways of life that would be considered to be out of place, inconsistent with and unbefitting for one’s call and social status. As one chooses a way of life, career or profession, he is expected to understand the ethics of such profession and be willing to abide by it. Anything done outside the norms is considered unethical and attracts some measures of penalty.

Dunamis’ Daily Devotional June 24, 2017 by Pastor Paul Enenche - Impacting Your Generation

Topic: Impacting Your Generation [Saturday June 24, 2017]

Scripture: How God anointed Jesus of Nazareth with the Holy Ghost and with power: who went about doing good, and healing all that were oppressed of the devil; for God was with him. Acts 10:38

Thought For The Day: A weightless person is a useless and impact-less person.

God’s purpose for His children is for them to shake their world by impact. Jesus lived three and half years of impact on earth. The world has not recovered from His impact till date. As followers of Christ, the only way to make God happy is to impact our generation for God.

Our Daily Bread Devotional, June 24, 2017 - Here to Serve

Topic: Here to Serve [Saturday June 24, 2017]

Read: John 13:3–17, Bible in a Year: Job 1–2; Acts 7:22–43

[Jesus] poured water into a basin and began to wash his disciples’ feet. John 13:5

It was time for our church to commission a new group of leaders. To symbolize their roles as servant-leaders, the church elders participated in a memorable foot-washing ceremony. Each of the leaders—including the pastor—washed each other’s feet as the congregation observed them.

Billy Graham’s daily devotional June 24, 2017 - An Angry World

Topic: An Angry World [Saturday June 24, 2017]

The wisdom that is from above is first pure, then peaceable, gentle, and easy to be intreated, full of mercy and good fruits, without partiality, and without hypocrisy. — James 3:17

The world, in the last few years, has reverted to a sort of barbarism. As practical Christianity has declined, rudeness and violence have increased. Neighbors quarrel with neighbors. Fighting is a major problem in our schools and the “gang wars” of the teenagers have come to present a serious menace in our cities. Fathers and mothers wrangle and bicker. Homes are disintegrating. High government officials in Washington engage in name-calling and in heated disputes not at all in keeping with the dignity of their office. Why and how has all this savagery crept into our social life?

Nkem Says: The Wahala of Dating Outside Your Social Class

Nkem Ndem
We grew up watching classics like Cinderella, Coming to America, Pretty Woman, Nollywood’s Violated and a couple of other movies where love conquered the social class divide.

Fast forward to 2017, the Internet rules; anyone can meet anyone, and nobody kicks up a fuss about cross-class relationships or marriages anymore. It is not considered overtly scandalous. We no longer factor it in when considering the root of our relationship problems, and we look to psychology or gender norms instead when trying to figure out why our partner is being an ass. We pretend that we live in a classless society where background does not matter as much as present compatibility. Things are changing and people’s classes are no longer inscribed in stone.

Joel and Victoria Osteen’s daily devotional June 23, 2017 – Prosper in All You Do

Today’s Scripture: "He will be like a tree firmly planted by streams of water, which yields its fruit in its season and its leaf does not wither; and in whatever he does, he prospers." - (Psalm 1:3, NASB)

Topic: Prosper in All You Do [Friday June 23, 2017]

Large trees represent power, majesty and stability. Have you ever noticed the difference between a tree planted by the water and a tree far away from water? The tree next to the water is much more healthy and vibrant. Its fruit and blossoms are the most beautiful.

A Promise For You From Bible Promises:

Topic: The Purpose Of Power [23/06/2017]

But ye shall receive power, after that the Holy Ghost is come upon you: and ye shall be witnesses unto me both in Jerusalem, and in all Judaea, and in Samaria, and unto the uttermost part of the earth. - Acts 1:8. Read: Matt 28:18-20

Topic: It Takes Grace To Run The Race! (Part 1) [Friday June 23, 2017]

“…Ye see your calling, brethren, how that not many wise men after the flesh, not many mighty, not many noble, are called: But God hath chosen the foolish things of the world to confound the wise; and …the weak things of the world to confound the things which are mighty; And base things of the world, and things which are despised, … yea, and things which are not, to bring to nought things that are: That no flesh should glory in his presence” - 1 Corinthians 1: 26-29
