My Father! Happy Father’s Day, Dad

Proverbs_22-6: Train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it

Proverbs_22-6: Train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it

My father taught me so many things, like how to ride my first bike. He gave me my first driving lesson and taught me how to play tennis, and study. He also taught me lessons that are harder to measure and put into words:

How to believe in myself,

Be happy and deal with life’s challenges.

Exodus_20-12: King James Bible Honour thy father and thy mother: that thy days may be long upon the land which the LORD thy God giveth thee

Exodus_20-12: King James Bible Honour thy father and thy mother: that thy days may be long upon the land which the LORD thy God giveth thee

  1. You Are What You Do, Not What You Say You’ll Do. Don’t be a big talker; let your actions speak for you. Don’t make empty promises and follow through on your words.
  1. If You Want To Achieve Greatness, Stop Asking For Permission. You have a special inner strength to live your life without constantly looking for the approval of those around you. You don’t need anyone else’s permission to achieve your dreams.
  1. Know How To Be Your Own Best Friend. Friends are crucial and close family connections are blessings, but there will be times in life when it seems like no one can understand you or give you the support you need. Sometimes you will need to help and encourage yourself. And that’s okay.
  1. Look In The Mirror. That’s Your Competition. Don’t compare yourself to others. Work on improving yourself. Be better than you were yesterday.
  1. It’s Not Going To Be Easy But It’s Going To Be Worth It. Work Hard. Overcome obstacles. Stay focused on your goals.
  1. If You Ever Find Yourself In The Wrong Story, Move. Don’t Stay In Situations That Aren’t Right For You. Don’t let your life become a place where you aren’t happy. Stay away from negative people and unhealthy environments. Be proactive. Write your own story.

Thank you, Dad for all that you have taught me and continue to teach me each day. Happy Father’s Day!

Deborah, Patriotic Woman, RCCG, Redeemed Christian Church Of God, RCCG Open Heavens, Sermon And Prayer Points By Pastor E A Adeboye, Daddy G O

Memorise:
Who can find a virtuous woman? For her price is far above rubies.
Proverbs 31:10

Read: Judges 4:4–9

4 And Deborah, a prophetess, the wife of Lapidoth, she judged Israel at that time.
5 And she dwelt under the palm tree of Deborah between Ramah and Bethel in mount Ephraim: and the children of Israel came up to her for judgment.
6 And she sent and called Barak the son of Abinoam out of Kedeshnaphtali, and said unto him, Hath not the LORD God of Israel commanded, saying, Go and draw toward mount Tabor, and take with thee ten thousand men of the children of Naphtali and of the children of Zebulun?
7 And I will draw unto thee to the river Kishon Sisera, the captain of Jabin’s army, with his chariots and his multitude; and I will deliver him into thine hand.
8 And Barak said unto her, If thou wilt go with me, then I will go: but if thou wilt not go with me, then I will not go.
9 And she said, I will surely go with thee: notwithstanding the journey that thou takest shall not be for thine honour; for the LORD shall sell Sisera into the hand of a woman. And Deborah arose, and went with Barak to Kedesh.

Proverbs_31-30-1: Favour is deceitful, and beauty is vain: but a woman that feareth the LORD, she shall be praised

Proverbs_31-30-1: Favour is deceitful, and beauty is vain: but a woman that feareth the LORD, she shall be praised

Message

Deborah was a patriotic woman. She was a prophetess, who used the anointing of God on her life to judge and instruct Israel in the way of righteousness. Are you a virtuous woman? In what way is your life affecting your community? The name Deborah means ‘bee’. She lived up to her name by her industry, sagacity and great usefulness to the society, her sweetness to her friends and her sharpness against her enemies. How far does your name influence you? What influence does the name of Christ have upon you? Have you been able to influence others to Christ? Deborah was said to be the wife of Lapidoth. ‘Lapidoth’ means ‘lamp’. As one associated with light, Deborah was a blessing to her community. Are you a blessing or a curse to your family, friends, acquaintances, neighbours, community, state or nation? Deborah was intimately acquainted with God. She was a judge and a prophetess. How close are you to the Almighty? From the life of Deborah, we learn that God depends on man to carry out His rescue operations and programmes. However, no man should see himself as indispensable. God can use anyone. Any man or woman who purges himself or herself can be used as a vessel unto honour by the Master. 2

2-Timothy_2-19: Nevertheless the foundation of God standeth sure, having this seal, The Lord knoweth them that are his. And, Let every one that nameth the name of Christ depart from iniquity

2-Timothy_2-19: Nevertheless the foundation of God standeth sure, having this seal, The Lord knoweth them that are his. And, Let every one that nameth the name of Christ depart from iniquity

Timothy 2:21 says:
“If a man therefore purge himself from these, he shall be a vessel unto honour, sanctified, and meet for the master’s use, and prepared unto every good work.”
Don’t be too big for God. He has alternatives. As a prophetess and a judge, Deborah’s head was perpetually greased by the oil of the anointing. To excel in God’s service, you need the anointing. It is the anointing that destroys the yoke. Deborah was picked from among the rebellious multitude in Israel. God still has His own vessels. He uses whoever yields himself or herself to Him. Deborah did not allow her gender and other issues of time and life to block her focus or stifle her consecration. She was entirely devoted to the service of God in Israel. There is no person without challenges. However, God expects diligence and total consecration in whatever is committed to your hands. Deborah was a good leader. She gave her followers the assurance of victory and did not fail. She raised their hope, and she delivered. Are you a morale-booster or a discourager? She helped the faith of her subordinates to grow strong. She was also submissive to her husband. How submissive are you?

Key Point:
God is no respecter of persons. What He needs from you is holy living. Live a life of holiness and you will be used of God.
May God Bless Nigeria, America And Israel And Take Care Of Us; May God Make His Face Shine Upon Us, And Be Gracious To Us; May The Lord Lift Up His Countenance Upon Us, And Give Us Peace, In Jesus Christ Name, We Pray! Amen!

May The Grace The Lord Jesus Christ, And The Love Of God, And The Fellowship Of The Holy Spirit Be With You All. Amen!

Divine Promotion For The Wise. RCCG. Redeemed Christian Church Of God. RCCG Open Heaven. Sermon And Prayer Points By Pastor E A Adeboye. Daddy G O.

Pastor E A Adeboye, Daddy G O, RCCG

Pastor E A Adeboye, Daddy G O, RCCG

Memorise:
The wise shall inherit glory: but shame shall be the promotion of fools.
Proverbs 3:35

Read: Psalm 75:5-7

5 Lift not up your horn on high: speak not with a stiff neck.
6 For promotion cometh neither from the east, nor from the west, nor from the south.
7 But God is the judge: he putteth down one, and setteth up another.

Proverbs_9-10-2: The fear of the LORD is the beginning of wisdom: and the knowledge of the holy is understanding

Proverbs_9-10-2: The fear of the LORD is the beginning of wisdom: and the knowledge of the holy is understanding

Message

Divine promotion is a reward for those who live holy. God is the Judge, and only He can promote you. The devil is not the one who will promote you. There are two types of promotion according to Proverbs 3:35. These are: GLORY and SHAME. There is glorious promotion for the wise and shameful promotion for fools. Who are the wise? The Bible says that the fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom (Proverbs 1:7). Those who are wise fear God, and because of this, they live a holy life. They depart from sin. God says that such people will have a glorious promotion. A classical example of a wise man, who as a result of his fear of God abstained from sin, is Joseph in Egypt. He refused to have carnal knowledge of his master’s wife, though it was offered to him ‘free of charge’. In Genesis 39:9, He queried this offer saying:
“……how then can I do this great wickedness, and sin against God?”
The end of the story is that Joseph became the Prime Minister of Egypt. Who are fools? Fools are those who can see danger ahead and still walk into it.

Romans_6-23: For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord

Romans_6-23: For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord

Fools are those who know that the wages of sin is death and yet continue to sin. Fools are those who know that the only way to get to the kingdom of God is by becoming born-again and yet they refuse salvation. Fools are those who have decided to continue living in sin, after knowing that without holiness, no man shall see God.

You must live a holy life if you want glorious promotion. God is no respecter of persons. He will never bend His standards. Promotion puts you on top. Being on top comes with very many advantages, according to Deuteronomy 28:1:
“And it shall come to pass, if thou shalt hearken diligently unto the voice of the Lord thy God, to observe and to do all his commandments which I command thee this day, that the Lord thy God will set thee on high above all the nations of the earth.”
God will give you divine promotion if you live holy. However, if you do not live holy, you will go down. Those who are on top enjoy it up there. Those who are below remain in suffering. I prefer being on top. When you are on top, you will get special protection. The one who is on top is special and of more value than the one who is below.

Ephesians_6-10-1: Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord, and in the power of his might.  11 Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil

Ephesians_6-10-1: Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord, and in the power of his might. 11 Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil

Can you see how wise it is to live holy? I pray that today, the Lord will give you the grace you need to live holy for divine promotion, in Jesus’ Name. All you need to do is to make up your mind that you will no longer live a life of sin anymore, and the Lord will help your decision.

Prayer Point:
Father, put Your fear in me so that I may shun evil for holy living, and grant me divine promotion this season in Jesus’ Name, Amen!

May God Bless Nigeria, America And Israel And Take Care Of Us; May God Make His Face Shine Upon Us, And Be Gracious To Us; May The Lord Lift Up His Countenance Upon Us, And Give Us Peace, In Jesus Christ Name, We Pray! Amen!

May The Grace The Lord Jesus Christ, And The Love Of God, And The Fellowship Of The Holy Spirit Be With You All. Amen!
