Topic: Push People Up [Wednesday October 18, 2017]

We all need somebody to believe in us more than we believe in ourselves. We all need people who will push us up, so to speak. After all, there are enough people trying to push us down in life. There are enough people telling us what we can’t become and how we don’t have what it takes.

Our Daily Manna October 18, 2017: ODM devotional – When It Does Not Make Sense

Topic: When It Does Not Make Sense [Wednesday, October 18, 2017]

Basic Scripture: Isaiah 55: 1-10

Most instructions that God will send to you for the lifting of your destiny will never make sense to you at first instance. For example, the Word of God to Abraham (Genesis 15: 1-3); Moses (Exodus 4: 10-14); Joshua (1: 9, 3:15); Joseph (Matt. 1: 19-20); Jeremiah (Jer. 1:6), etc, did not make initially.

The word says, “His ways are not our ways, neither are His thoughts our thoughts” (Isaiah 555:8-10).

When God called great men like late Oral Roberts, the late archbishop Idahosa, the late Lester Sumrall, the late Pastor Akindayomi (RCCG founder), Pastor W.F . Kumuyi, the late Pastor Collins Babalola, etc, it did not make sense then, but it made sense later!

Many Christians are lying along the roadside of life discouraged and depressed because they have not learned how to deal with disappointment. But it’s not God’s will for you to live a disappointed, depressed or discouraged life today—or any day.

Home Breakers! (3) by Pastor Faith Oyedepo

Topic: Home Breakers! (3)

Dear Reader,

I am sure that you have been enjoying peace and God’s blessings, after letting go of impatience, as taught last week. This week, I will be teaching on “Covetousness.”

Covetousness is a strong urge or desire to possess something that belongs to someone else.  You see something on or with someone and you immediately start scheming and planning to have it. Discontentment is what usually drives people into covetousness. Many people are possession obsessed.  They are never satisfied with what they have per time and nothing is ever enough. They always want more. Life means much more than the abundance of your possession. Luke 12:15 warns: Take heed, and beware of covetousness: for a man’s life consisteth not in the abundance of the things which he possesseth.

“And when Moses was gone into the tabernacle of the congregation to speak with him, then he heard the voice of one speaking unto him from off the mercy seat that was upon the ark of testimony, from between the two cherubims: and he spake unto him.” (Numbers 7:89 KJV)

The Ark of the Covenant was furniture that is like a box. It was a wooden chest clad with gold. Inside it were the two stone tablets of the Ten Commandments as well as Aaron’s rod that budded and a pot of manna. A golden lid known as the “mercy seat” which is covered with 2 golden cherubim lay above the Ark.

Luke 22:32 "But I have prayed for thee, that thy faith fail not: and when thou art converted, strengthen thy brethren."

Text: Luke 22:32

The concept of "conversion" is mentioned in the Holy Scriptures at least 14 times. The basic meaning of the term is a turning or returning to God. This implies a turning away from sin and a turning to God. Repentance and putting faith in God are corresponding synonyms to conversion.

I will both lay me down in peace, and sleep: for thou, Lord, only makest me dwell in safety. — Psalm 4:8

In a materialistic world which has tried to sever diplomatic relations with God, we have nowhere to retreat except within ourselves. We are like turtles in a traffic jam—the best we can do is to pull our heads into our shells and shut our eyes.

He was pierced for our transgressions, he was crushed for our iniquities. Isaiah 53:5

After centuries of war and destruction, the modern city of Jerusalem is literally built on its own rubble. During a family visit, we walked the Via Dolorosa (the Way of Sorrow), the route tradition says Jesus followed on His way to the cross. The day was hot, so we paused for a rest and descended to the cool basement of the Convent of the Sisters of Zion. There I was intrigued by the sight of ancient pavement stones unearthed during recent construction—stones etched with games played by Roman soldiers during their idle moments.

Topic: Call Out Seeds of Greatness [Tuesday October 17, 2017]

Very often, we see potential in other people that they can’t see in themselves. When you speak vision into them, when you tell them what they can become, you can help set the direction for their life. Your words have the power to push people into their divine destiny. I believe that the reason some people are not living at their full potential is because no one has ever spoken faith into them. No one has taken the time to say, “Hey, you’re great at this. You’ve got a gift here. You’re going to do something amazing.”

Topic: Maintaining Purity in Courtship (3)

Dear Reader,

In courtship, you have to protect your marital destiny by protecting yourselves from defilement. As I said last week, do all in your power to see that the foundation of marriage you lay during courtship is not destroyed through the lust of the flesh. Defilement of bed is the defilement of marital destiny. It takes the mercy of God to restore the honour in marriage, once it is defiled. This week, I shall be talking about “Abstaining from all appearances of evil.”

And he sent him away to his house, saying, Neither go into the town, nor tell it to any in the town. Mark 8:22-26.

Thought For The Day: If you want to experience the touch of God, you must be willing to be led by Him.

Our anchor scripture tells the story of a blind man of Bethsaida who was brought to Jesus Christ to be touched by Him. Jesus took the blind man by hand and led him out of the town and after a little process; the man regained his sight.

Topic: Focus On The Victory That You Have In Christ — Tuesday October 17, 2017.

For whatsoever is born of God overcometh the world: and this is the victory that overcometh the world, even our faith.” (1 John 5:4 KJV)

The bible tells us that we have been quickened, raised and made to sit together in Christ Jesus. We are already seated with Christ. Deliverance operates from the standpoint of victory. This is the victory that overcomes the world, even our faith. That is why he did not say we are changed from weakness to glory, but from glory to glory and from strength to strength. This is the victory! God has already given you victory! So focus on the victory. Focus on the victory that will make you overcome the world. That victory is “even our faith”. Faith is the substance of things hoped for and the evidence of things not seen. The victory that overcomes the world is the word of God. No matter what the devil is doing you are coming out.

Matthew 26:33 "Peter answered and said unto him, Though all men shall be offended because of thee, yet will I never be offended."

Text: Matthew 26:33

Just like Peter, we are often more confident of ourselves than God is. Many Christians are devastated when they fail in some area that they thought they had long since grown past. We need to realize that as long as we are in this mortal body, we cannot fall asleep at our battle station against the works of the flesh. If we do, our flesh is just as capable of sin as anyone else's. If we fall, it should concern us but not surprise us. We should simply realize with Paul, that "in my flesh dwelleth no good thing," get back into the spirit through confession and forgiveness, and go on with Jesus.

This week, I shall be discussing what I titled “Communication Blocks.” While defining what communication is, I said it is the passing across of information between two persons. Communication blocks are the things that you do, through your words and actions that prevent you from connecting at a deeper level with someone else.

Topic: Covenant Success Habits!

Even though success is a universal desire, many people go about chasing shadows because they do not understand how to get there. Interestingly, success is much more a function of character than activity (2 Peter 1:10). Principles and character must go together to maximise result in the pursuit of destiny. A wise man once said, ‘You don’t decide your destiny; you decide your habit and your habit decides your destiny.’ In other words, where we find ourselves in life is entirely a function of our habits. That is why I have often said that it is our attitude that ultimately determines our altitude.

Therefore, there are certain Covenant Success Habits which I believe we need to possess to enhance our success in life. These habits are fundamental in the school of success because without them our success is not in view. They include:

If you truly receive the gospel of grace, it will make you love God so much that sin will not have dominion over you. In fact, you won’t be thinking about sin and you won’t be sin conscious. You will be righteousness conscious. That is why Paul, writing in our text says awake to righteousness and sin not. He said, be conscious of your righteousness and you will not sin.

Most of us have a distorted idea about patience. We think of it as something designed to help us suffer failure gracefully, but according to these scriptures, it will actually put us on the path to success!

Topic: The Blood of Jesus [Sunday October 15, 2017]

And when that time comes, you will ask nothing of Me [you will need to ask Me no questions]. I assure you, most solemnly I tell you, that My Father will grant you whatever you ask in My Name [as presenting all that I AM]. Up to this time you have not asked a [single] thing in My Name [as presenting all that I AM]; but now ask and keep on asking and you will receive, so that your joy (gladness, delight) may be full and complete. — John 16:23-24

The concept of Christ's blood confuses some people, but without a proper understanding of it, believers cannot appropriate its power.

David Abioye's Daily 15 October 2017 Devotional - How To Overcome Weariness

Topic: How To Overcome Weariness [Sunday October 15, 2017]

Weariness is satan’s weapon to frustrate the saints from taking their blessings.

It comes when hope seems gone and waiting seems not necessary any longer.

When weariness is not stemed it extends to frustration which in turn can open the door to all kinds of evil.

DCLM Daily Manna 15 October, 2017 by Pastor Kumuyi - Lot Of The Wicked

Topic: Lot Of The Wicked — Sunday October 15, 2017.

Text: Job 21:22-34

Key Verse: "That the wicked is reserved to the day of destruction? they shall be brought forth to the day of wrath" (Job 21:30).

Death does not respect any man, as it comes at its own timing. It does not discriminate along social status, economic well-being, financial security, level of education, and numerous other things that matter to men today. While responding to the rebuke of his friends, Job noted that the wicked may prosper but they remain unrecognized by God and unrespected by wise people.

Our Daily Manna October 15, 2017: ODM devotional – Call Yourself To Order!

Topic: Call Yourself To Order! [Sunday, October 15, 2017]

Basic Scripture: Genesis 3: 1-24

Indeed Aristotle said: “I count him braver who conquers his desires than him who conquers his enemies: for the hardest victory is the victory over self.”Most people cannot control their weight, appetite, temper, sleep, etc, and they blame the devil for that.

You do not always cast out the devil as a solution to problems. For example, concerning food, you make up your mind and say things like: “I will go on a diet plan.” Concerning your spouse, believe and say things like: “I will not beat my wife” or “I will not be disrespectful to my husband again.” These are acts from your God-given powerful human will. You must believe that by the grace of God, you can do all things. You can stop adultery and fornication!

Seeds of Destiny 15 October 2017 by Pastor Paul Enenche — Supernatural Strength Through Fasting And Praying

Topic: Supernatural Strength Through Fasting And Praying [Sunday October 15, 2017]

Scripture: But they that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint. Isaiah 40:31

Thought For The Day: If your strength is not small, you are not permitted to crumble before any battle.

It is clear from Scriptures that God gives power to the faint and imparts strength on those who lack might. The Will of God for His children is to exist in supernatural strength and not in weariness.

TREM’s Daily 15 October 2017 Devotional by Dr. Mike Okonkwo - Let Not Your Heart Be Troubled

Topic: Let Not Your Heart Be Troubled — Sunday October 15, 2017.

Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you: not as the world giveth, give I unto you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid.” (John 14:27 KJV)

Jesus is the Prince of peace. He is the Prince of Shalom. Nothing broken and nothing missing. His peace passes human understanding. Jesus said let not your heart be troubled, believe in God and believe in me. Are you wondering what you will put on? Let not your heart be troubled. Are you wondering on what you will eat? Don’t worry. Have you set target for yourself and it has not manifested? Don’t worry. The truth is that when it starts to manifest, it will be double miracle.

Kenneth Copeland’s Daily October 15, 2017 Devotional: The Heart of the King

Topic: The Heart of the King [Sunday October 15, 2017]

The king's heart is in the hand of the Lord, as the rivers of water: he turneth it whithersoever he will. - Proverbs 21:1

Think about that for a moment! God has reserved the right to override the will of a nation's leader, if need be, to see that His people are governed according to His will.
