But the Lord is the true God, he is the living God, and an everlasting king: at his wrath the earth shall tremble, and the nations shall not be able to abide his indignation. Jer. 10:10 A life without God is as one living in a dark room full of obstacles unclear to the eye. God in one's life is a light that shines to give meaning and guide to life as a lamp that shines a path. Without God, the demands of life situations draw people into all sorts of things that make them lose their way in life. Some have ended up resorting to beliefs in creations, some even ask for the dead to pray for them; others make things they have created themselves to be gods of their lives, all because of a vacuum in man’s heart, which only the true God can fill. The opening scripture declares God as the true God. It goes on to say He is the living God, and an everlasting King. Note that in using the words ‘true’, it is intended to distinguish this God from the false gods. Saying He is the living God, implies that there are other dead gods. This God is King, and His reign has no end, for He reigns forever. Until you recognize God as the true God, until the heart opens to the knowledge of God, life will always be a mystery. Since the truth is a reality, for God to be true, He has revealed Himself in reality. He is not a counterfeit and pretender as idols, but He is a living reality of what He has revealed Himself to be. He is one we can depend upon for help in life situations; in whom and by whom all essence of truth in life resides. By His son Jesus Christ, God has come into our world and dwelt amongst us as the true living God. Scripture says and the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth, John 1:14. That word that made the world we see dwelt among us in physical form to reveal God to us. God is no longer a mystery, as Men and women witnessed and beheld Jesus in all truth and glory. Jesus lived among men as the embodiment of God we can physically relate to. By honouring Jesus and acknowledging Him, we acknowledge the true God. Scripture says, "and we know that the Son of God has come, and he has given us understanding so that we can know the true God. And now we are in God because we are in his Son, Jesus Christ. He is the only true God, and he is eternal life." 1 John 5:20 NLT. Notice that Jesus as the son gives us the understanding to know the true God. Son here implies God tabernacled in humanity. By appearing to us in human physical form, he gave us an understanding of God, to know God in a form we can relate to. For there is no God outside Christ. The whole of God is in Christ. We cannot know the true God in any other way, but by knowing Christ. He says, “…He that has seen me has seen the Father.” John 14:9. Therefore, honouring, accepting, and loving Jesus, is to honour and love the true God – the everlasting King, immortal, invisible and the only wise God. Honour Him and He will honour you, by revealing himself in your life. Christ in your life is like having a navigator in your life. Leading and guiding you in a victorious life. God does not come in our lives to condemn us, but to be an ever-present help in our lives. Having Jesus Christ in your life grants you a relationship that banishes loneliness and misery yet offering you the joy of life the world cannot offer. So, before you long for anything in life, give Christ Jesus, our God, his rightful place in your life and all you are searching for will find you. Jesus is the pearl that meets all needs. The Scripture says, the word is nigh thee, even in thy mouth, and in thy heart: that is, the word of faith, which we preach; that if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved. Rom 10:8-9. It is as simple as saying I believe, and God comes into your life forever. Until you confess and believe these words, God is not in your life. The word of faith we believe and confess brings God in our lives. Confess and believe Jesus Christ as the risen Lord, who died to remove your sins and was raised from the dead to justify you before God. When you say and believe those words, you are saved and belong to God. Hallelujah! Prayer Dear Heavenly Father, I acknowledge you as Jesus Christ, the Lord and God of my Life. I pray I honour you every day in my life. I pray I live my life according to your will. You are God and King of my life. Thank you for revealing yourself to me. In Jesus name, I pray. Amen.

In the morning sow thy seed, and in the evening withhold not thine hand: for thou knowest not whether shall prosper, either this or that, or whether they both shall be alike good. Eccl 11:6 In life, nothing just happens. Everything has a reason for its occurrence. Life is a chain reaction of events. Whatever we do, will either be a cause of an event or a consequence of what happened before. Simply put, we reap what we sow and sow what we reap. Life without seed sown has no future. The seed of anything carries the future possibilities and benefits. The seed is a capsule of potential. The least a seed could be without sowing is itself. When sown, the seed has the potential to multiply into numerous possibilities. Jesus was the seed for the future of the Christian faith. He equated himself to a seed when he said, Except a corn of wheat fall into the ground and die, it abideth alone: but if it dies, it bringeth forth much fruit. John 12:24. So, believers today are the fruits of Christ the seed that died and rose to bring many to life. Implying the future of Christianity is secure because Christ, the perfect seed is always bringing forth fruit. A life without sowing is uncertain of the future as its limited to a measure of its own self, with limited possibilities of progress. The opening verse admonishes us to sow seeds expecting them to prosper. A Sower must sow and prepare for a future harvest. Many people always wonder why they never increase. It is because they concentrate on achieving a harvest that has no seed. Everything you have in your life has a seed factor in it. It has a potential to produce the things that you want in your life. A seed is any given thing that can make a world of difference in another person’s life. It may be your time to comfort someone or your possession. Scripture says while the earth remains, seedtime and harvest, and cold and heat, and summer and winter, and day and night shall not cease. Gen 8:22. This amazing truth reveals that life on earth is tied to sowing and reaping. God tied this principle to the life span of the earth. Just as winter affects anyone living in wintery areas, anyone who lives in the earth faces seedtime and harvest. You either practice sowing, or you do not, but the opportunities to sow for a harvest are always available. This gives us a perspective that lack is a result of choice. When you chose not to sow, you chose not to harvest. But be wise and sow good seeds. Allow the principles of life to work in your favour. Sow seeds that are beneficial to you, but helpful to others. Sow patience, love, time, kindness, they will come back to you exceedingly. You see, scripture says be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man sows, that shall he also reap. Gal 6:7. God is the Lord of harvest and be sure he will not mistake your harvest. He will give you what you sowed. Therefore, sow your good seeds and be the person you want others to be to you. Put a smile on someone’s face. Find a good ground, like the House of God and sow your seed into God’s work. A life of sowing seeds has a future in waiting, therefore sow and set forth your future. Prayer Dear Heavenly Father, I pray I take advantage of the sowing times you bring in my life. I pray I recognize the seeds I have in my life which I can sow to expect a harvest. I thank you that my harvest will not delay, but it will come to me in its due time. In Jesus name, I pray. Amen.

Seest thou a man diligent in his business? He shall stand before kings; he shall not stand before mean men. Proverbs 22:29 One of the known secrets of life is that diligence has rewards. To be diligent is to be careful, meticulous, or thorough in what one is doing. Such people avoid mistakes, but if they make mistakes, they are careful to learn from the experience never to repeat it. To be diligent is to be industrious and hard-working, never giving into slackness. As stated in the opening scripture, these kinds of people have a quality that attracts them to people of high status like Kings. Any place worth going to will cost you to get there. Similarly, to get your life to another level, you must be prepared to acquire qualities that will draw you to that level and sustain you there too. It is of no good to you, to sit and admire to be something that you are not prepared to bear. For instance, do not admire having a car when you are not prepared to pay for driving lessons, insurance, road tax, fuel, and maintenance. Everything you desire comes with attached responsibilities that require one to be diligent in meeting them. Diligence makes one rich. Scripture says He becometh poor that dealeth with a slack hand: but the hand of the diligent maketh rich. Prov. 10:4. As you practice diligence, you will avoid mistakes in your life as you develop a pattern of doing things without rushing. The result will be to have plenty of time and resources as scripture says the thoughts of the diligent tend only to plenteousness; but of everyone that is hasty only to want. Prov. 21:5 As you practice diligence, you may not know it, but someone is watching you. Even God is watching you as the scripture say He rewards those that seek him diligently, Heb 11:6. In whatever you do, the level of diligence you use will reward you. When you fail having done all you can, get up, cast the dust off yourself and try again. Your failure has just taught you how not to do it, and if you keep at it, soon you will see your handwork rewarded. So, keep on practising your diligence. Be diligent in going to church, in reading God’s word, in working on your career and it will pay off. As you perfect your skill, you will become a leading force in what you do. Eventually, others will pay for what you diligently committed yourself to do. Scripture says the hand of the diligent shall bear rule: but the slothful shall be under tribute, Prov.12:24. Therefore, the ancient secret of life I have for you today is to keep on being diligent. It will pay off. Prayer Dear heavenly father, I thank you for your word. I pray I am diligent in all that I do. I pray am diligent in seeking you and the reading of your word. I pray you are at work in me to cause me to do your will diligently, in Jesus' name I pray, amen.

And he called the multitude, and said unto them, Hear, and understand: Not that which goeth into the mouth defileth a man; but that which cometh out of the mouth, this defileth a man. Mat 15:10-11 One of the determining factors of framing your destiny is the mouth. When you fail to master the use of the mouth to your advantage, you will soon see your life going nowhere. Mastering the use of the mouth will channel your life into the destiny you have spoken. In the opening scripture, Jesus lets us know that the defilement of a person is not by anything else, but the mouth. In saying this, He equally implied that a person is built up and purified by the words of his or her mouth. Out of the mouth proceed with things that determine the course of our lives. As a steering wheel is turned to change the course of the vehicle, the tongue in the mouth, speaks words that control the course of your life. If used well, you will see and live in your destiny. Scripture says, and a tiny rudder makes a huge ship turn wherever the pilot wants it to go, even though the winds are strong. So also, the tongue is a small thing, but what enormous damage it can do. James 3:4-6 NLT. That little member in your mouth has an enormous responsibility in determining the course of your life. You must learn to use it rightly. Many times, you regret speaking certain things, because you fail to control your tongue. These incidents may result in long time conflicts, which could be avoided if the tongue is controlled. You see, if you can control the mouth, you can control the whole body. Scripture says, for in many things we offend all. If any man offends not in word, the same is a perfect man, and able also to bridle the whole-body James 3:2. So how can one avoid offending in words? Firstly, it is important to know that the mouth is an outlet of the heart. As scripture says, for out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaks, Mat 12:34, it is what comes out of the heart, through the mouth, that defiles a man. What comes out of the mouth is the fruit of the seed in the heart. Whatever you have stored in your heart will either make you or break you. If it is good, you will have good in your life as scripture says, "A man shall eat good by the fruit of his mouth: but the soul of the transgressors shall eat violence." Proverbs 13:2 Until the heart has the right content, the person will keep defiling himself or herself, by what he or she speaks. You must fill your heart with the word of righteousness that you may speak words that are consistent with the life God has for you. A life of victory and not failure. So, when you have this word in you, speak it over your life that you may channel the course of your life to align to God’s will. Scripture says, "the mouth of the righteous speaks wisdom, and his tongue talks of judgment [justice]." Psalms 37:30. This wisdom is God’s word, so speak God’s word over your life. Train your tongue in speaking the right destiny for your life as you speak peace, truth, and all the fruit of righteousness. In doing so you will become the product of what you speak. Scripture says, "for by the words of thy mouth shall thou be justified, and by thy words, thou shall be condemned....", Mat 12:37. So, the use of your mouth is key to determining your status. Use it for good by speaking the things you want to see in your life. Prayer Dear heavenly Father, I thank you for your word. I pray my tongue speaks the wisdom of God that channels the course of my life. My life is on the course you have destined for me. In Jesus name, I pray, amen.

“And ye are complete in him, which is the head of all principality and power:” (Col 2:10, KJV) The Greek word used in the scripture for complete is "pléroó" - which means to render full; or to fill to the top: so that nothing shall be wanting or lacking, fill to the brim. So, what is it that can fill a man and make him never wanting again? What is a complete life? how does one determine they are complete? Quite often life completeness is regarded by the level of material wealth a person possesses. Yet this is also relative from person to person. The greatest lie in the world is the notion that one is not complete until one gets the latest technology, or gets married, or gets a child. It is a cycle that always keeps us wanting to have that we may be complete. Too many people live life chasing a dream or something to satisfy their need for a complete life. However, there is a "completeness" made available for us in Christ Jesus. A believer in Christ has been made complete in all things of life and godliness. By being in Christ the believer is filled with all things many are trying to have. For instance, the believer is filled with the Joy of the Lord. Christ said, "these things have I spoken to you, that my joy might remain in you, and that your joy might be full." John 15:11. A believer's joy does not stem from the material wealth he has, but from what Christ has supplied within Him. A believer does not love because of what he gets from another, but he loves because the love of God has been shed in his heart by the Holy Spirit. In the opening scripture, by the virtual of being in Christ, the believer has all he needs without the aid of other factors. He is complete without the need for Jewish ceremonies, complete without the help of a philosopher, complete without the invention of superstitions, and complete without human merits. So, don't walk as one lacking, you have everything within you. The completeness within a believer is cultivated by embracing the finished work of Christ. By accepting the benefits of the resurrection of Christ. His resurrection brought a new life to us. that new life is in us today. we must speak and believe those things that relate to the new life in the resurrected Christ. Confession I am the righteousness of God in Christ Jesus. I am justified in Christ. The love of God has been shed abroad in my heart. I have peace with God. Nothing by any means shall be able to separate me from the love of God in Christ Jesus. I am complete in all things relating to life and godliness. Thank you, Jesus. Amen
YOU ARE COMPLETE IN CHRIST. content media

Therefore he said unto Judah, Let us build these cities, and make about them walls, and towers, gates, and bars, while the land is yet before us; because we have sought the Lord our God, we have sought him, and he hath given us rest on every side. So they built and prospered. 2 Chron. 14:7 During the time of rest, it is common for people to relax and enjoy their luxuries. Some go for holidays and others pass their time playing games, while others prefer to have outings of different sorts. All these things are done to occupy a time of physical rest and they minister to the body. However, whereas these things are good for the healthy keeping of the body, they do very little for our spirit man. A rest is characterised by an end of pursuing, a break or arrival to a settlement. As there is a “physical rest”, there is equally a "spiritual rest" in which your spirit man is at peace. That rest is in Christ Jesus. A man in Christ is a man in God’s rest. He is a man, whose search is over as he has arrived at a place of all things. All that is required of him is to know and embrace the enormity of blessings in Christ. Spiritual rest is experienced by embracing the finished work of Jesus Christ who has provided all spiritual things a person requires. When we believe and affirm to ourselves the truth of what Christ has done for us and teach our hearts to uphold that truth, we build our spirit man in the spiritual rest in Christ. That affirmation comes from learning God’s word to know and experience God’s rest. When we have our physical rest, we must use it to build our conviction of what Christ has done for us by acquiring more knowledge of God’s word. In the opening scripture, King Asa of Judah shows us how to use our spiritual rest. During the rest of the land, King Asa did that which was good and right in the eyes of the Lord. He used the time of rest to inspire restoration in the land by breaking down all the images of strange gods, to turn the hearts of the people back to God. He built up fenced cities to protect himself and the people from the attack of the enemies. By building fenced cities, he developed the land and God prospered the people. He did that which attracted the favour of the Lord to come upon the land Similarly, you ought to use your spiritual rest in Christ to build your spirit man from the attacks of the enemy. Get rid of everything that affects your relationship with God, like teachings that reduce your confidence in God. Get to learn the power at work in you. Your hobbies cannot defend you against the devil when he attacks, but the word of God in you will defend you against his devices. Instead of unnecessary window-shopping trips, attend your church regularly to be built up in your faith by the preaching of God’s word. Use your time to edify yourself in whatever is lacking in your faith. If it is patience, read about it. If it is fear, learn how to avoid it. Use your rest to buildup your spirit man against the attacks of the enemy. You alone know your weaknesses; learn how to outgrow them in Christ Jesus. Whatever you do, do not neglect to use your rest time to build yourself up. Prayer Dear Heavenly Father, I pray that in my time of rest, I am dedicated to building up my spirit man to receive an understanding of your word. Fill me with the revelations in your word. I pray Your purposes are fulfilled in my life that I may be found pleasing in your sight. In Jesus name, I pray, amen.

Ye are of God, little children, and have overcome them: because greater is he that is in you, than he that is in the world. 1 John 4:4 In life, the understanding of who you are outweighs the knowledge of what you know. Nothing can override the knowledge of your identity. Your identity sets you to be distinctive and unique. Knowing your uniqueness determines your confidence in the way you deal with issues in life. Unfortunately, many of God’s children have not developed the understanding of their spiritual identity in God. Most of them relate to themselves according to the physical identity of their natural birth and the identity society has labelled them. For this reason, many live under obscurity. You see, when we become born again, we take on a new identity. Scripture says therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new, 2 Cor. 5:17. All the things of the fleshy identity count no more. They are of no value to you anymore as expired groceries would be to a housewife. For this reason, we no longer have confidence in the flesh, (Phil. 3:3). We have taken on a new identity of the spirit with no record from the past. In the opening scripture, we are made aware of our new identity. We are of God; implying, you are born of God. You are hailed from God. You came forth from God. You are of a species that has conquered its adversary. God has anointed you and secured you from all infectious fears and false teachings in the world, which corrupts your mind set, by giving you the greater one, the Holy Spirit. This is your composition that describes your new identity. Knowing your composition in God develops confidence in yourself, because the greater one is in you. For this reason, Paul is able to say, I can do all things through Christ, which strengthens me, Phil 4:13. His confidence was in that which Christ made him. Similarly, you ought to have confidence in yourself. You can do anything that you put your will to. God has made you into an invincible species in which the God and man attributes are working together in you. Do not let yourself down by walking in fear and failure. You are a design of success. You may have failed before, but you learnt how not to fail again. So, get yourself together and rise to the heights God expects you to be. The greater one is in you to help you overcome your adversaries along the way. Confession I believe the greater one is in me. God has designed me for success. Failure is not my portion. Everything I do and everything around me works out for my good. I am of an overcoming species I cannot fail, in Jesus name, amen.

For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this age, against spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places. Therefore take up the whole armour of God, that you may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand. EPH 6:12-13 As a Christian, it is practically impossible to prevail over the enemies of salvation without the armour of God. There are many trials that should never have overcome believes if they only had put on the armour of God. Its high time you suit yourself up in the armour of God ready for combat in the day of evil. The challenges of life are not merely caused by the people who seem to be the cause of our frustrations. In most cases the people themselves have no clue that they are as a puppet on a string, used to cause havoc in another's life. Most of our battles in life are caused and designed in the spirit realm. In the opening scripture, we are told we do not wrestle with flesh and blood. The first mistake we do in trying to solve situations is to focus our emotions and feeling on the person we think is to blame for our problem. All People are born good until the devil manipulates their thinking. No one is born a cheat or liar, people become these things when the devil and the principalities, powers and rulers of darkness and spiritual host of wickedness in heavenly places influence their thinking and derail them from the moral good of God. It is when People are derailed from the moral conduct of God that are often used by the dark forces to cause evil days or evil moments in people's live. So, Until we address the root cause of the situations, we always will be fighting the wrong battles. In the scripture we are advised to putting on the whole armour of God in readiness for these moments of combat against the forces that cause trouble in our lives. The armour of God is the might weapon the Lord has given believers to defeat the devil and his allies. Satan and his allies can not overcome this armour. The Armour of God has the truth as the belt. Truth sets free. Christ promised to give us truth that our adversaries cannot answer back, Luke 21:15. Once you stand by the truth the accuser has nothing to claim over you. Secondly, it has the breastplate of Righteousness. This is what protects the vitals, as it shelters the heart. It fortifies the heart against the attacks of Satan. This is were faith in Our God and love for the brethren is. As believer you have received the righteousness of Jesus and you are the righteousness of God. Accept what God has said over you as a believer and stand by it. Then have the readiness to witness the Gospel of peace by avoiding any provocation, or quarrel, but showing all gentleness and patience to all that you may deter all temptation and persecutions. Above all, the shield of Faith. We must be convinced, persuaded and fully assured of God's promises. Faith is all we need in the time of temptation. Also the helmet of salvation, the sword of the spirit and prayer to implore help from God against all these spiritual adversaries. Once you have done all these things, Stand in wait and see the salvation of the Lord. In whatever you find yourself in, All you have to do is stand and let the Lord prove Himself, for he always does. Prayer Dear Holy Father, I chose today to stand by your word concerning the armour of God. Grant me grace, wisdom and strength to exercise your word of putting on the whole armour of God. I stand in truth, in righteousness, in faith, in salvation with prayer to see and receive victories over my adversaries, in Jesus name, amen.

And there came a voice to him, Rise, Peter; kill, and eat. But Peter said, Not so, Lord; for I have never eaten any thing that is common or unclean. And the voice spake unto him again the second time, What God hath cleansed, that call not thou common. Acts 10:13 -15 How inclusive is your faith? Does it accommodate people from other Christian denominations? Are you tolerate to other believers who happen not to go to your own church? The test of our Christianity is in the unity of our faith. How open minded is your faith? In reaching out to the masses, the early church encountered radical turnaround in the way they worshiped God. Most of them having come from the Jewish background, found it unusual to worship with Gentiles (non-Jews). However, because Christ had died for the sins of the whole world, God had to open the gates of the Gospel to be preached to non-Jews, even to the entire ends of the world. In achieving this, God used animals that He had forbidden the Jews to eat, to deliver a message to Peter. In this, God illustrated to Peter that the gospel has no boundaries. Therefore, whoever was willing to hear and believe in the Gospel of Christ, was welcome to the faith. When Peter brought the news that a gentile named Cornelius had become a believer in Christ, the believers in Jerusalem were shocked and did not know how to respond. However, Peter said that God had overcome his objections and led him to Cornelius. In fact, God had given Cornelius the Holy Spirit—proof of salvation. After Peter’s colleagues heard the whole story, they praised God and accepted this new development as great news (Acts 11:2-18). As this incident shows, conflict with other Christians may arise over important faith issues. When this happens, we should guard ourselves against the bias of our initial reaction. We need to listen and speak respectfully, not jump to conclusions that promote divisive results. Have an open mind as you hear what others have to say. Consider everything in the light of the will of God revealed in Christ Jesus who earnestly prayed for the unity of all believers, John 17. Before judging the behavior of fellow believers, let them tell their side of the story. The Holy Spirit may have something important to teach you through them. Prayer Dear Heavenly Father, I thank You for Your Word. I pray I am tolerating to others and that I exercise my faith with the aim for the unity of all. Teach me to walk in oneness with others. I pray for an understanding heart with the ability to discern the perfect will of God in Christ Jesus. In Jesus name, I pray. Amen. o

For I reckon that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory which shall be revealed in us. Romans 8:18 Life in this present world keeps throwing to us all kinds of complicated situations that sometimes we may feel like giving up. Today in the world circles, the truth is rare and the hunger to succeed by all means possible is at its peak. This makes it tough for Christians to stand strong on the values of their faith. However, as for you child of God, the best is yet to Come. Anything that you endure for Christ in this present time will never be in vain. There is no measure of suffering for Christ that can out weigh the Glory to be revealed. The bible calls the suffering of the present moment as light afflictions. It is these light afflictions that work for us a far more exceeding and eternal weight of glory (2 Cor. 4:17). In everything you experience, there is a glory to be revealed in you. For this reason you ought not to let what you see to blind you from what is coming ahead of you. As a Christian, according to 2Cor. 4:18 you ought to know, that what you see presently in your life, is temporary. If you can see the problem in your life, know for sure that it is about to change, but the glory that is to be revealed in you, is eternal and it is here to stay. You can begin to experience this glory right here in this world as you begin to study God’s word. Not only are you able to see this glory, but it shall be revealed in you. You will become your full potential when this glory is revealed in ways only God can perform it in you. Consider Joseph, how he suffered for upholding the values of his faith. He was sold to slavery by his own brothers for having a dream, as the scripture says that a man’s enemies are those of his household. While in slavery, he was accused for something he did not do and was sent to prison where he stayed for more than 10 years of his life. Nevertheless, he kept holding on to the faith and when the moment came for the glory in him to be revealed, he was taken out of prison and raised to a governing position of second in command in the greatest Empire of the time. You too, ought to endure the present moments for the glory to be revealed in you. God has the best in store for you. Scripture says about this glory to be revealed that eye has not seen, nor ears heard, neither have entered into the heart of man, the things which God hath prepared for them that love him (1 Cor. 2:9). No one truly knows what is to be revealed in you, but as you hold on to the Lord, He will fulfil your dreams. So hold on, Your time is coming soon, for you to shine and reign with Him. The bible says. If we endure, we shall also reign with Him. If we deny Him, He also will deny us, 2 Tim. 2:12 so then, hold on, the best is yet to come Confession I believe great things wait for me. In my life all things work together for my good. And I declare my loyalty to the faith in Christ Jesus. In Jesus’ name, amen

For which cause we faint not; but though our outward man perish, yet the inward man is renewed day by day. 2 Cor. 4:16 One of the modern trends today is to look young at whatever age one may be. Many buy small and tighter clothing to fit in and others go to the extent of unnecessary surgical operations to change their looks. All these things are done in the name of fashion so as to fit into the modern times. However, for a child of God, do not be engrossed in those things that are destined to perish, but set yourself to those things that evolve to a glorious state. Unlike your outward man which is your body that ages and dies eventually, your inward man, as the scripture says has the potential to be transformed, renewed and invigorated from glory to glory. Many people concentrate on the appearance of the outer man and they neglect the inward man. For this reason many live depressed lives as their inner man lacks the rejuvenation required for a joyful life. As a child of God in Christ Jesus, your life ought to be interesting day by day, as scripture say the path of the just is as the shining light, that shins more and more unto the perfect day, pro 4:18. Your inward man is ever being renewed day by day to emerge stronger by the spirit of God (Eph 3:16) and wiser by the knowledge of Christ Jesus (Col. 3:10). Your inward man has been regenerated with the divine nature of the Christ-like abilities in you. Through the studying of the Word of God, your inward man identifies with these abilities. That is why it is important to study the Word and get to identify with your true nature in strength, Knowledge and wisdom that you may express what is already resident in your inward man. In the Bible, scripture testifies that the man Caleb grew to the age of 85 years old and demanded from Joshua the promise God made him when he was just 40 years old. Caleb said “… and now, lo, I am this day fourscore and five years old. As yet I am as strong this day as I was in the day that Moses sent me: as my strength was then, even so is my strength now, for war, both to go out, and to come in. Now therefore give me this mountain …” (Joshua 14: 10-12). See how an 85 years old man had the courage and strength for war because he followed the Lord throughout his life and identified his strength in God when he said, “If the Lord delight in us then he will bring us into this land and give it us …” (Num 14:80). Therefore, you too can give attention to the grooming of your inner man that you may identify these qualities. You will be stronger and efficient in what you do. Being a child of God, your inward man is created to conform to Christ Jesus by the knowledge you learnt about Him. The person of Christ is embedded within your inner man. The more you learn the Word of God, the more you identify with your spiritual nature in the inner man. That man in you longs to shine in your life. Don’t be governed by the outward man when you can reign with the inward man who is ever being renewed. Prayer Dear Heavenly Father, I greatly thank You for Your Word. I pray that I am renewed daily in my inward man as I study Your Word. Give me an understanding heart to meet all my spiritual requirements. In Jesus name I pray. Amen.

…and, behold, the bush burned with fire, and the bush was not consumed. And Moses said, I will now turn aside, and see   this great sight, why the bush is not burnt.  Ex 3:3‐4  In life, many Christians have experienced great ordeals that have challenged their faith. During such times, some have given up, some learnt lessons no one can never teach them, yet others have become living testimonies in today’s society.  When Moses was watching over the sheep of his father-in-law, he saw a bush blazing with fire, but astonishingly, the bush was not burning to destruction. What he saw caught his attention that he had to get closer to see if this could possibly be happening. However, as he got there, God addressed him out of the burning bush and gave him an assignment to be a deliverer of His people Israel.    The burning bush experience depicts moments in the life of a believer. They are moments of afflictions in ones life that seem to be challenging to the believer, but the believer is not destroyed. Looking at a believer undergoing challenges in his life from the outside, one may conclude defeat and failure. It is easy to think that he will never survive the ordeal. Many may even concoct stories thinking the believer will never become better. However, what does the scripture say, many are the afflictions of the righteous: but the Lord delivereth him out of them all, Psalms 34:19. As the burning bush, the believer may burn but he is not destroyed.  Paul the apostle wrote, We are troubled on every side, yet not distressed; we are perplexed, but not in despair; persecuted, but not forsaken; cast down, but not destroyed; always bearing about in the body the dying of the Lord Jesus, that the life also of Jesus might be made manifest in our body, 2 Cor. 4:8-10. Notice that the outcome of your ordeals is to manifest the life of Christ in you.   In the Moses experience, a normal bush in the back of a  desert  became  famous  throughout all generations, because God used it to talk to Moses. Similarly, God is able to use your ordeals to speak to you. As you live for God while in these ordeals, the life of Christ will manifest in you. People may think you will never rise again, but little do they know, that at the appointed time, God is going to establish you once again. You will be a sign for others to be attracted to God. As Moses turned to see what had happened to the burning bush, many will turn to you, asking and wondering how you made it. Be strong and courageous in your ordeals, for God will speak through them to testify of His goodness.  Therefore, do not fret at the situations surrounding you. Learn from them, and keep your attention to what God is saying to you. As the voice of God came from the burning bush, out and within your situations, God is talking to you. So give attention to Him, He is your immediate help in time of  trouble.  Prayer  Dear Heavenly Father, I thank You  for Your Word. I pray for strength  and courage during trying times. I  thank You for victory over all trying  times.  I  believe  my  life  shines  brighter  and  brighter  to  a  perfect  day, in Jesus name I pray. Amen.

And he said, Hearken ye, all Judah, and ye inhabitants of Jerusalem,  and thou king Jehoshaphat, Thus saith the Lord unto you, Be not  afraid nor dismayed by reason of this great multitude; for the battle  is not yours, but God’s. 2 Chron. 20:15  What do you do when the odds are against you? Do you run and hide to bury your head in the sand or do you stand to face the  challenge?  In  life,  the  odds  are  often  against us. Finances, for example, are a continual struggle for many. Work always seems to exact much too high a price for the little reward it returns, but in the midst of all this, we must stand.  In today’s Bible reading of the Old Testament, the odds are against Jehoshaphat and his army. They are no match for the combined forces that are moving against them. However, in all this, Jehoshaphat loves God and follows him. Although Jehoshaphat does not have military might, he is on God’s side. Jehoshaphat keeps his trust in God throughout his military exploits, despite his allies’ lack of faith. As you read this passage, look for the secret of Jehoshaphat’s success.  When the enemy bore down on the army of Judah, God spoke through prophet Jahaziel as noted in the opening scripture: “Be not afraid nor dismayed by reason of this great multitude; for the battle is not yours, but God’s” (2 Chronicles 20:15). We may not physically fight an enemy army, but every day we battle temptations, pressures, and “those powers of darkness who rule this world” (Ephesians 6:12), who want us to fail or to stop doing good.  Nevertheless, do not fret when the odds are against you. Remember that we who are believers have God’s Spirit in us. If we ask for God’s help when we face struggles, God will fight for us and God always wins.  In considering Jehoshaphat’s victory, how can you let God fight for you? Firstly, you must invite God by asking Him in prayer for help in your daily battles. God has promised to answer those who call on Him with a sincere heart, (Is. 58:9).  Secondly, when you call on Him you must realize the battle is no longer yours anymore, but it is the Lord’s. The battle being the Lord’s means it will be fought on God’s terms. God specifically told them when to go against the enemy, and where to find the enemy. Don’t lean on your own understand, just follow God’s leading. Thirdly, you must recognize your human limitations and allow God’s strength to work through your fears and weaknesses. Overcome your fears by obeying God’s instruction. Submit under His leading and you will not need to raise a finger in the fight.  Fourthly, make sure you are pursuing God’s interests and not just your own selfish desires. God’s interests are always righteous and set to glorify Christ.  Lastly, in all you do, trust God and do not force your ideas. Many Christians have learnt the hard way when they invited God into their problem and then tried to force their ideas. Some have lost everything even when God was with them. Nevertheless, God has always rebuilt whatever they lost. Do not wait to learn the hard way, abide in the Lord and receive victory in your due time. The odds against you cannot match God’s ability to make you succeed.  Prayer Dear heavenly Father, I invite You to  help me in my daily battles. Guide  in  the  way  of  victory.  The  battle  belongs  to  You.  And  I  receive  the  victory in Jesus name. Amen

Wherefore be not unwise, but understanding what the will of the Lord is. Eph. 5:17 Many times we do things in the name of God that look good, sound good, even feels right in trying to compromise or accommodate with the world, but they are not consistent with the will of God. At times we find such things meet popular acceptance but they have no spiritual fulfilment. Other times what we do even provoke hate yet we say its the devil resisting our work for God. Sadly many people don't take time to pause and enquire of the Lord's will in what they are doing. The apostle Paul wrought the opening scripture to the church of Ephesian when they where experiencing difficult times of immorality and persecution. He admonished them not to be unwise. in saying this, He implored them that because of the badness of times, not to be unwise in being ignorant of their duties and being negligent of their souls, but to understand what the will of God is towards their duties and souls. From this scripture we are drawn to understand that ignorance of our duty to the kingdom of God and negligent of the salvation of our souls, are the evidences of greatest folly; yet while an acquaintance with the will of God and care to comply with it, bespeaks the best and truest wisdom. You can make God's will your wisdom. In Deut. 4:6, Moses says to the Children of Israel that the statutes and commandments he had given to the would be their wisdom and their understanding in the sight of the nations. You can apply God's word in your active life as your wisdom. When we become Born again, we are admonished not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is that good and acceptable and perfect will of God. Rom 12:2. God's will is revealed in His word. To make God's will your wisdom you must be willing to study God's word and adopt it in your daily life. You need not worry whether you have the ability to understand it, for God has said in his word we have received the mind of Christ, 1Cor. 2:16; we are encouraged that we have received Spirit of a sound mind, 2Tim 1:7. Therefore you have all what is needed to make God's will your wisdom. In everything you set to do, endeavour to apply God's word and soon you will realise your life is dwelling in the will of God. So make God's will your wisdom. Prayer Dear Heavenly Father, it is my heart desire to make your will my wisdom for living. I pray you grant me the ability to exercise your will in my life. I pray your word is before me all the days of my life to guide me in all that I do, in Jesus name I pray, amen.

And when the devil had ended all the temptation, he departed from him for a season Luke 4:13 What do you do when your are tempted? Do you ever recognise a temptation when it comes? It is inevitable that temptation comes to all of us, yet nothing can best prepare you for the season of temptation like the Lord. Seasons of temptations are designed to test ones loyalty to a commitment. When Jesus was setting to begin his ministry, he set himself apart into a desert to seek the Lord God His Father in fasting. at the end of His 40 days fast, it is recorded that the devil tempted Him three times. The nature of the temptation where designed to derogate and diminish the commitment Our Lord had to God the Father. The devil failed in all his attempts, and left Jesus to return to Him at another season. Temptation comes to us all and no man is immune to it. However, Remember scripture encourages us that No temptation has overtaken you except such as is common to man; but God is faithful, who will not allow you to be tempted beyond what you are able, but with the temptation will also make the way of escape, that you may be able to bear it. 1Cor. 10:13. God knows what you are able to bear, don't buckle under temptation. When you are tempted, don't depend on your personal attributes, rely on God to protect you and reveal a way of escape for you. At other times scripture encourages us to resist the devil and he will flee. However, if you don't have it in you to resist, at best, literary run for your life to escape the devils devises. Do whatever it takes, to avoid the devils temptation. Every devils temptation is designed to produce the effects of killing stealing and destroying the person. What is important is to have the ability to know your season of temptation and apply God's wisdom to avoid temptation. Scripture says for we are not ignorant of the devil's devises. So before the season ever comes, equip yourself with the word of God, that you may be strengthened and your eyes may be enlightened, to notice the devils temptations when they come. Prayer Dear Heavenly Father, I pray for your protection when am tempted. Take me not into temptation, but deliver me from evil. Guide me and guard me that I may not falter my commitment to you. I Jesus name I pray.

Now as He drew near, He saw the city and wept over it, saying, "If you had known, even you, especially in this your day, the things that make for your peace! But now they are hidden from your eyes. For days will come upon you when your enemies will build an embankment around you, surround you and close you in on every side, and level you, and your children within you, to the ground; and they will not leave in you one stone upon another, because you did not know the time of your visitation." Luke 19:41-44 I remember when I was coming to England for my first time, It was the end of October when the fall winter season is meant to be setting in. I had never lived in England or been to a country with wintery season, but I was all suited up with three quarter court and a few layers underneath. You can say I was ready to face the winter weather. Just like natural seasons physically happen on earth, there are spiritual seasons that come to us all. Unfortunately the greatest dilemma is many people including Christians miss their season. If we only can learn to notice and learn to live in a spiritual season, we would gain much lessons from our experience in a season. Scripture makes us understand that, to every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heavens, Eccl 3:1. Jesus stressed this elsewhere when he says, it is not for you to know the time or the season, which the father has put in his own power, Acts 1:7. From this we clearly understand that nothing just happens by luck or by chance. God in his divine power is the controller of all things and has the specific plan, purpose and timing for every one of our life experiences. As there are natural seasons suited for specific hemispheres, Spiritual seasons are divinely determined times with personal experiences, that God allows to come to a person in the aim of fulfil three main things. Produce greater or deeper spiritual growth and maturity in us Prepare him for future task or ministry calling Promote him to positions that acquire victories over forces darkness However to achieve these things one has to yield to God who purposes these seasons in our lives. In the opening scriptures, Israel was for a long time hoping and waiting for the coming of the messiah. Unfortunately when he eventually came, they never recognised him and they missed their visitation. Consequently, forty years after Christ's prophesy, their enemy, Titus of Rome. arouse over them and besieged Jerusalem and broken down. They were powerless to defeat him as they lacked what they spiritual visitation season had intended to add to them. Don't let your spiritual season pass you by. God wants you to be prepared for spiritual seasons. There are numerous indications left for us in the scriptures to help us prepare for spiritual season. People of God perish for lack of Knowledge but you ought to be ready that you may not buckle under your spiritual season. Whatever it takes and How ever devastating the season may be, don't give up. it has something to add to you. Prayer Dear Heavenly Father, I believe you are in control of all things and you intend well to allow spiritual seasons to come into my life. I pray that I receive the wisdom to learn from my spiritual season. I pray you grant me the strength to prevail while in the spiritual season. in Jesus name I pray. amen.

Thus says the Lord, thy redeemer, the holy one of Israel; I am the Lord  thy God who teacheth thee to profit, which leadeth thee by the way  that thou shouldest go. Isaiah 48:17  Before we continue, can you faithfully answer these questions about you? Are you teachable? Are you submissive to leadership? Are you willing to be led? Many times when we fail to admit to our inner struggles, we end up coming short of the results we wanted because we failed to address those issues when we had a chance. There is nothing as hurtful as failing when it was in your capacity to achieve victory. Many of God’s children have the capacity and capabilities to achieve great things, but many are not teachable. They want the result that comes from learning God’s word, but they are not willing to be taught. They want the profit but not able to learn what it takes to have the profit. In the opening scripture, God is emphasizing that He is a teacher and a leader. What every teacher needs is a student and what every leader needs is a follower. The most a student can ever do to a teacher is to repeat back what he learnt from the teacher. When God says He teaches us how to profit, in essence, He expects us to live by His standards that we may learn from Him how to regain the costs back and even get profits. Note that profit is what you did not have before; it is an increase; it is a measure of excess above the cost. Many Christians are living life on the average, only getting their costs back. They are bearing with just enough, yet God wants them to have overflowing abundance. Do yourself a favour; let God teach you how to profit. Jesus said I am come that they might have life and that they might have it more abundantly, John 10:10. Implying that the life of Christianity is not a life of bear survival, but it is a life of excess, a life of more than enough. To have this life in its essence, firstly you must be teachable. The entirety of God’s word is about teaching. God is a great investor. Before He adorns you with His glory, He has to teach you how to walk in the glory that you may sustain it. Scripture advises not to give that which is holy unto dogs, neither cast your pearls before swine, lest they trample them under their feet, and turn again and rent you, Mat 7:6. The dogs and the swine will behave that way because they have no understanding of what is presented before them. So it is of a person who is not taught God’s word. He will behave carnally without putting value to spiritual things. However as for you, be teachable that you may understand what God has for you. Secondly, be a follower. Humble yourself under leadership. God is a leader, and leaders need followers. Have humility in you that you may follow diligently those that God has chosen to lead you. The glorious life is meant for you. Prayer Dear Heavenly Father, I thank you for  your word. I pray I receive a teachable  spirit that I may learn of your ways. I  receive understanding and wisdom of  your  word  to  guide  me  in  my  life  everyday. In Jesus name I pray amen

Therefore, brethren, stand fast, and hold the traditions which ye have  been taught, whether by word, or our epistle. 2 Thess. 2:15  There are problems in life that happen and make us bewildered with no answer. A car accident wipes out a family. Cancer strikes a young wife and mother. A poor managerial decision puts an eager, productive employee out of work. Rebel soldiers slaughter people huddled in a church. Some events in life make no sense at all. That is why we call them tragedies. Many time we these events destabilise believers in their faith In today’s NT Bible reading, Paul offers no easy answers for life’s hardships. However, He does offer one piece of advice that, if followed, brings real comfort and encouragement for those who are persecuted. At the same time, he warns us of the evil in this world, in particular, of those who speak falsely for God. In the opening scripture text, God had given gifts of infinite value to the Thessalonians. Paul urged the Thessalonians to thank God for these gifts, yet Paul also knew that they would face challenges of their belief in Christ. They would have doubts, and certain people and circumstances would encourage those doubts. Unless the Thessalonians had a firm conviction about all they had been taught, their faith would die. So Paul urged them saying “stand firm and keep a strong grip on everything we taught you” (2 Thessalonians 2:15). They had the Scriptures and the letters that Paul had written to keep them on track in their faith. In these Paul trusted that they would find comfort, inner peace and strength to persevere in the challenges they faced. As He did for the Thessalonians, God has given us a great gift- His Word, yet it is so easy to take this gift for granted and not use it. When we stop using His gift, we make ourselves more susceptible to falsehoods. To strengthen our faith and protect ourselves from falsehoods, we need to spend time in God’s Word everyday. If you do not spend time reading your Bible everyday, think of things you can cut from your schedule to make time for God. If you faithfully spend time in the Word, challenge yourself to spend even more time with God. Every gift you ever want from God is in His word. Whatever happens, don't let go of your faith. Gather with brethren to encourage your self in the faith. Do whatever it takes to Hold on tight to your faith and you will be blessed. As scripture says weeping may endure for a night, but joy comes in the morning, (Ps 30:5b). You may be in the night of your faith, but hold on tight, the morning of your faith will soon show up with joy. Prayer Dear  Heavenly  Father,  I  thank  you  for your word. I pray I learn to hold  on to your word at all time. I pray for  strength  and  stability  during  trying  times.  Use  me  to  be  an  encouragement  to  others.  In  Jesus  name, I pray. Amen.

“Get out of your country, from your family and from your father’s house, to a land that I will show you. I will make you a great nation; I will bless you and make your name great; and you shall be a blessing…” (Genesis 12:1-3) Many people are limited in their progress in life because they value themselves according to their skills, level of education and the background of their natural family. So if no one has ever been successful in their family, they also consider themselves failures. God forbid. I always hear people that say, ‘‘for us in our family, we have never been able to see good days.'' My friend, if you are a born Again Christian, I want to remind you that you belong to a blessed heritage, a blessed family - the family of God; you have broken the mould. So think Generational Blessings. its important for a believer to get out of the thinking that blurs ones vision for greater things. Until one steps out of the usual kind of thinking that captivate the mind to think according to the limits in the ability of skills or in the ability of your natural family, it is hard to see the blessings of God. For God to bless this 75 year old man, Abram, He had to change his way of thinking. COMING SOON........ He had to take Abram away from the things that have contributed to his low self esteem. When God spoke to Abram, which is interpreted as "assumed father", he was already on his way to Canaan the promised land but Abram was still dwelling in his father's company (Gen 11:31). As much as a place may hinder your breakthrough, changing your thinking and that which influences the thinking is of great importance. God had to take Abram away, not only from a place, but from the people that had contributed to his thinking that he is only an assumed father. Time came that he had to separate from Lot his nephew. Some times in life, you have to change your friends to change your thinking. You have to change who you tell your secrets to. The bible says, ''wherefore come out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the Lord, and touch not the unclean thing; and I will receive you, and will be a Father unto you, and ye shall be my sons and daughters, saith the Lord Almighty.'' 1 Corinthians 6:16-17. Until you step out of a mind-set that has been influenced by the world you live in, your result will not change much. You must step out of the confinement that has held you back and believe God for the unusual. If you do the usual, expect a usual outcome. But as you do the unusual expect the unusual. Seek for the Lord more, increase your Church attendance, and do more than the usual. Step out of your norms and let God guide you. Change your confession, Change your talk, and you life will evidently reveal the change you speak. Prayer  Dear Heavenly Father, I pray that  You lead me and guide me in the  way that I should live my life.  In  Jesus name I pray. Amen
