The Word Of God Is More Powerful Than Any Witches And Wizards

The Word Of God Is More Powerful Than Any Witches And Wizards

“And blessed is she that believed: for there shall be a performance of those things which were told her from the Lord.”

Luke 1:45 (KJV)

The word of God is more powerful than any obstacle. It is more powerful than witches and wizards. It is more powerful than incantations, spells and divinations. It is more powerful than any pronouncement and negative things that are working against you. The word of God has been spoken. And he will see to it that the word spoken in your life will come to pass.

I encourage you, therefore, to hold on to the word. Hold fast the profession of your faith without wavering. Never give up your confidence. Cast it not away. God will see to it that the word is validated in your job, business, academics etc. Don’t be afraid, no matter what you encounter. There shall surely be a performance. “With God nothing shall be impossible” (Luke 1:1-37, KJV).

If you hold on to the word, you are guaranteed of victory. The word cannot fail. If it fails, it means God has failed. He has said His word will not return to Him void. That is why we have an edge against the world. They don’t have the word of God. We have an edge because we have the God factor. God is with you. With you, God will do mighty things. He will do the impossible. He will shut the mouth of the enemy. He is God. Beside Him there is no other.

Why do you think you are saved? Is it to become a disgrace to His kingdom? No! You are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, a peculiar person, a holy nation. Set apart to show forth the praises of Him who has called us out of darkness into His marvellous light. You may have missed it severally but you will succeed. Don’t go about with your head bowed to the devil. Lift up your head! God has already perfected everything that concerns you and He wants you to function from that standpoint.

Hebrews 6:9-20

9 But even if we speak like this, dear friends, we feel sure about you. We know that you have the better blessings that belong to your salvation. 10 God is not unfair. He will not forget the work you did or the love you showed for him in the help you gave and are still giving to other Christians. 11 Our great desire is that each of you keep up your eagerness to the end, so that the things you hope for will come true. 12 We do not want you to become lazy, but to be like those who believe and are patient, and so receive what God has promised.

God’s Sure Promise
13 When God made his promise to Abraham, he made a vow to do what he had promised. Since there was no one greater than himself, he used his own name when he made his vow. 14 He said, “I promise you that I will bless you and give you many descendants.” 15 Abraham was patient, and so he received what God had promised. 16 When we make a vow, we use the name of someone greater than ourselves, and the vow settles all arguments. 17 To those who were to receive what he promised, God wanted to make it very clear that he would never change his purpose; so he added his vow to the promise. 18 There are these two things, then, that cannot change and about which God cannot lie. So we who have found safety with him are greatly encouraged to hold firmly to the hope placed before us. 19 We have this hope as an anchor for our lives. It is safe and sure, and goes through the curtain of the heavenly temple into the inner sanctuary. 20 On our behalf Jesus has gone in there before us and has become a high priest forever, in the priestly order of Melchizedek.

Hebrews 10:35-39

35 Cast not away therefore your confidence, which hath great recompence of reward.

36 For ye have need of patience, that, after ye have done the will of God, ye might receive the promise.

37 For yet a little while, and he that shall come will come, and will not tarry.

38 Now the just shall live by faith: but if any man draw back, my soul shall have no pleasure in him.

39 But we are not of them who draw back unto perdition; but of them that believe to the saving of the soul.

God Says It! I Believe It! And That Settles It!

 

“It is the spirit that quickeneth; the flesh profiteth nothing: the words that I speak unto you, they are spirit, and they are life.”

John 6:63 (KJV)

The word of God will fight for itself. If Jesus did not fail, the word of God will never fail because Jesus and His word are one. Let the rain come down, let everyone be against you, but hold on tenaciously to His word. You may not understand the things around you but just hold the word. And you watch what the word will do.

In Mark 4:35, Jesus said “let us pass over unto the other side”. That was the word that came from the lips of Jesus. And they got into the boat and started going. Suddenly, there was a storm. The wind became contrary. But, nevertheless, they could not be stopped because Jesus had spoken.

Maybe, you are experiencing contrary situations in your life. You are experiencing things that are contrary to what God has spoken. The Lord has spoken that by His stripes you were healed. He has spoken that with long life will he satisfy you and show you His salvation. He has spoken that no weapon formed against you shall prosper. He has spoken that you are blessed going out and blessed coming in. He has spoken that you have been redeemed from every curse of the law. My friend, forget the devil. God’s words are spirit and life. They will not fail. Devil, I say to you get lost. God’s people shall manifest.

Beloved, God is not intimidated by the attacks of the devil. He would not start a thing and stop it halfway. God will overrule for you. There is a divine investment into your life that is about to shake nations and affect community. Don’t you ever think that God will just watch and allow the devil to mess with you. I declare to you that you are coming out of every pressure and every influence of the devil. The devil will never have the last word. If anyone will testify, it is you.

Joshua 21:43-45
43 And the Lord gave unto Israel all the land which he sware to give unto their fathers; and they possessed it, and dwelt therein.

44 And the Lord gave them rest round about, according to all that he sware unto their fathers: and there stood not a man of all their enemies before them; the Lord delivered all their enemies into their hand.

45 There failed not ought of any good thing which the Lord had spoken unto the house of Israel; all came to pass.

Welcome Address To SHILOH 2015, FROM GLORY TO GLORY, 2 Corinthians 3:18 By Bishop David O. Oyedepo. Winners Chapel, Living Faith Church Shiloh 2015

shiloh 2015 from glory to glory

Welcome Address To SHILOH 2015, FROM GLORY TO GLORY, 2 Corinthians 3:18 By Bishop David O. Oyedepo. Winners Chapel, Living Faith Church Shiloh 2015

Heaven on Earth greetings in Jesus’ name.
As we all know, our God specializes in doing new things over and again – Is. 43:19/Lam. 3:22-33
Again, we understand that by redemption, we are ordained for continuous and unending progress – Pro. 4:18
We also understand that God is committed to our continuous change of levels as His children– Ps. 84:7

Furthermore, we understand that all the forces that engender change of levels grow and that there is no end to the growth of all spiritual forces responsible for our change of story.

For example, some of the ever-growing forces responsible for our translation from glory to glory include:

The Force of Vision, but there is no end to seeing farther– Gen. 13:14-15/ Hos. 12:10
The Force of Faith, but there is no end to developing one’s faith – 2 Thess. 1:3/ Jn. 14:12
The Force of Revelation, but there is no end to growing in revelation– 2 Cor. 3:18/ 1 Cor. 8:1-2
The Force of Wisdom, but there is no end to growing in wisdom – Rom. 11:33/ Matt. 12:42
The Force of Love, but there is no end to growing in love – Eph. 3:17-19/ 1Cor. 2:9
The Anointing of the Holy Spirit, but there is no end to growing in the anointing – Ezek. 47:1-7/ Jn. 3:34
All of the above implies that:

There is no end to change of levels in God’s agenda for His people – Is. 43:18-19/ Deut. 28:1-13

There is no end to change of levels for the redeemed – Pro. 4:18/ Rom. 5:1

This is because:

As we grow in revelation, we scale new heights – 2 Cor. 3:18/ Is. 60:1-22

As we grow in love, we spring new surprises – Eph. 3:17-19/ 1 Cor. 2:9

As we grow in wisdom, we grow in impact – Rom. 11:33/ Matt. 13:54

As we grow in the anointing, we grow in exploits– Ezek. 47:1-7/Joel 2:23-26

This is why, there is no end to Next Levels for the Redeemed – Pro. 4:18/ Jn. 14:12

Indeed, there is no end to being translated from glory to glory, as we remain committed to walking in the ever-increasing light we access from scriptures.
Therefore, the prophetic theme for Shiloh 2015 is:

FROM GLORY TO GLORY– 2 Corinthians 3:18

We are all expected to get set to access new depth of insight, empowering us to break new grounds, scale new heights, break limits into greater realms of glory, resulting in the rise of giants at Shiloh 2015.

But according to scriptures, we can only be full beneficiaries of Shiloh 2015 if we fully engage in the spiritual preparations required for its maximum impact because the husbandman that labours is ordained to be the first partaker of the fruit – 2 Tim. 2:6

Remain ever blessed.

Jesus is Lord!

David O. Oyedepo

I Love You Dear! In The Hands Of God, My Words Will Be Used Like Nails To Secure My Spouse’s Self-Esteem

I Love You Dear! In The Hands Of God, My Words Will Be Used Like Nails To Secure My Spouse’s Self-Esteem

The words of wise men are like goads, and masters of these collections are like well-driven nails.
Ecclesiastes 12:11

When your marriage relationship hits a trouble spot, it may be difficult to find much to praise about each other. Yet those are the times we need praise the most. So I urge you to initiate praising your spouse. Make it a deliberate effort. Bring the power of positive words to him or her in the midst of trouble.

In the verse above, Solomon gave some very descriptive characteristics of well-spoken words. When you choose to encourage and praise your spouse, your words carry the ability to prod, or goad, him or her in the right direction. And notice the result: Those words become like “well-driven nails,” the kind that secure all types of building projects.

In the hands of God, your words can be used like nails to secure your mate’s self-esteem. Your wise and truthful words bring perspective to his or her life, to your relationship and to your situation as a couple. They make finding solutions to your problems a real possibility.

You may be asking, “What if all this praise goes to my spouse’s head? Won’t he become prideful?” There’s a difference between truthful praise and flattery.

Flattery gratifies a person’s vanity, but praise is based on a person’s character and deeds. When you truthfully praise and applaud your spouse’s choices, you reinforce the value of building godly character.

Paul exhorts us, “Speak truth each one of you with his neighbor” (Ephesians 4:25). A keyword in that phrase is “truth,” which is the only real standard for bringing value to another person. Truth results in assurance and security, in worth and value. It becomes the compass during the storm that confidently steers us in the right direction.

So praise your spouse in all situations, using wisdom to meet the need of the moment, speaking truthfully to help construct character. Your words of affirmation can help rebuild what life has torn apart.

PRAY

Pray for a heart that longs to build up, not tear down.

Children Need Role Models. Let’s Talk About Sex

Children Need Role Models. Let’s Talk About Sex

Flee also youthful lusts: but follow righteousness, faith, charity, peace, with them that call on the Lord out of a pure heart.

2 Timothy 2:22

Flee from sexual immorality. Every other sin a person commits is outside the body, but the sexually immoral person sins against his own body.
1 Corinthians 6:18

3 For this is the will of God, even your sanctification, that ye should abstain from fornication:
4 That every one of you should know how to possess his vessel in sanctification and honour;
5 Not in the lust of concupiscence, even as the Gentiles which know not God:

1 Thessalonians 4:3-5

I want you to be wise in what is good and innocent in what is evil.

ROMANS 16:19

Have you ever had that wave of paralyzing dread—the one where you fear you’ll come off looking and feeling like a hypocrite if you challenge your child to uphold standards you didn’t keep too well yourself when you were younger?

For many, this feeling is especially acute when talking to children about sexual behavior. I believe this is one of the ways the enemy attempts to silence parents. But don’t allow past failures to prevent you from calling your child to the standard of God’s Word.

After all, every one of us has lied, haven’t we? Yet we still teach our children to tell the truth. When it comes to talking frankly with your preteens and teenagers about what God expects of them sexually, you dare not let the fear of an embarrassing question force you into silence.

Most children won’t ask whether or not you were a virgin prior to marriage. But even if they do—and even if you weren’t—you could answer, “That’s a good question, and someday when you’re an adult, I want to answer you more fully. But for now, that information is off-limits.”

If your child isn’t satisfied and persists in digging further, you may want to admit, “Yes, I made some mistakes I really regret,” but not go into details.

Children need role models, especially in their parents. And it’s better if they don’t know certain things about you when they’re too young to understand.

When your child is grown, in the context of an adult relationship, you can decide how much you want to reveal. But for now, don’t let vivid descriptions become stumbling blocks in their lives and in your discussions.

Keep the subject on God’s standards and on His desire for their welfare and purity. They need to hear from you what God expects of them.

1 Corinthians 10:13 –
There hath no temptation taken you but such as is common to man: but God [is] faithful, who will not suffer you to be tempted above that ye are able; but will with the temptation also make a way to escape, that ye may be able to bear

Matthew 5:28 –
But I say unto you, That whosoever looketh on a woman to lust after her hath committed adultery with her already in his heart.

1 Corinthians 6:19-20

19 What? know ye not that your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost which is in you, which ye have of God, and ye are not your own?

20 For ye are bought with a price: therefore glorify God in your body, and in your spirit, which are God’s.

There Is God’s Supernatural Power In The Words I Speak

There Is God’s Supernatural Power In The Words I Speak

I want to share something with you today that many believers have yet to understand. It’s a truth that can help you stay at peace, knowing the power that is yours in Christ Jesus. I think that’s why I’m so excited to write this letter—I want you to see that…

There is supernatural power in the words you speak.

When our Lord Jesus Christ died on the cross and rose again to be seated at the right hand of the Father, the Bible tells us that we as believers were also seated in Christ at the right hand of the Father (Ephesians 2:4-6).

Today, seated in Christ at the Father’s right hand, you have divine authority! Because of this, your words carry incredible, divine, and supernatural power.

Beloved, the words you speak have life-giving, creative power. What you choose to say sets in motion the kind of life you are going to live.

And more specifically…

The words you speak by faith in the days to come will positively influence the direction of your life in 2016.

Let’s look at what that means for you and your family as you approach a brand-new year. If you’ll believe that God’s Word is true and speak His promises over your life in faith, you’re going to see greater things in the year to come…
•Improved health
•Restored relationships
•Increased provision
•Renewed youth

And these blessings are just the beginning…there is no limit to the grace and goodness of God through Christ Jesus!

It is amazing to see what Jesus taught about faith and the power of words in Mark 11 after He had cursed the barren fig tree.

The disciples were astonished that the unfruitful tree had withered just as Jesus had commanded it to. It was at this moment that Jesus taught His followers about the connection between what you believe and what you say.

Look carefully and you’ll see it…

So Jesus answered and said to them, “Have faith in God. For assuredly, I say to you, whoever says to this mountain, ‘Be removed and be cast into the sea,’ and does not doubt in his heart, but believes that those things he says will be done, he will have whatever he says.”

Did you catch it? Jesus used the word “says” three times, but He mentions “believes” only once.

Beloved, can you see that while right believing is important, it needs to go hand-in-hand with speaking words of faith? When you believe something, you speak it out (2 Corinthians 4:13).

Jesus mentioned “says” three times and “believes” only once because…

Giving voice to what you believe strengthens your faith and anchors your heart on God’s promises for your life.

That’s why your words are so important. Not only can you speak faith into your situation, you can speak life to your soul. So say…
•“I am the righteousness of God in Christ Jesus!”
•“I am healed. My body is growing stronger. I am whole!”
•“I have the favor of God. Good things happen to me and through me.”
•“My sins are forgiven. I am unconditionally loved by my heavenly Father.”

When you declare your righteousness, forgiveness, and healing in Christ, hope, faith, and strength rise in your heart. It determines how you respond to challenges, how you unlock God’s power in your circumstances and the direction your life will take.

Speaking life over every situation,

I Must Grow In Grace In Order To Accomplish Great Things For God’s Kingdom

I Must Grow In Grace In Order To Accomplish Great Things For God’s Kingdom

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

We can only advance in our spiritual maturity as the Holy Spirit comes upon us. It is then we are able, from within, to become what He has called us to be, and that is a powerful witnesses.

Jesus experienced continual growth and increase in His life from childhood. Therefore you and I must constantly be growing in our spiritual life if victory is our goal. Those who remain stagnate in their walk with God cannot walk in victory. We must grow in grace in order to accomplish great things for God’s Kingdom.

Luke 2:40,
“And the child grew, and waxed strong in spirit, filled with wisdom: and the grace of God was upon him…And Jesus grew in wisdom and stature and in favour with God and man.”

I Corinthians 13:11 says,
“When I was a child, I spake as a child, I understood as a child, I thought as a child: but when I became a man, I put away childish things.”

2 Peter 3:18 the apostle decrees,
“But grow in grace, and in the knowledge of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. To him be glory both now and for ever. Amen.”

We must always be in a process of spiritual growth for the sake of the King.

What A Great Day I Live In Because Of What Jesus Has Done For Us. The Spirit Of God Lives In Me

What A Great Day I Live In Because Of What Jesus Has Done For Us. The Spirit Of God Lives In Me

That he would grant you, according to the riches of his glory to be strengthened with might by his Spirit in the inner man.
Ephesians 3:16

We are infused with inner strength by the Spirit of God. As we invite God to fill us and strengthen us, something begins to happen in our spirit. There is a new enthusiasm about life and the will of God for our lives. As we recognize and yield to the Holy Spirit, God is able to do exceeding abundantly above all we can ask or think. We have “joy unspeakable and full of glory” (I Peter 1:8).

What a great day we live in because of what Jesus has done for us. We are redeemed because of His death, burial, resurrection, and the power of His blood.

What a powerful revelation given by the Holy Spirit. You are in Christ, Christ is in God, and Christ is in you! The Spirit of God lives in us.

Confession:
That He would grant me, according to the riches of His glory to be strengthened with might by His Spirit in my inner man! Amen! Ephesians 3:16

Every Word God Has Spoken Concerning My Life Shall Come To Pass, Amen

Every Word God Has Spoken Concerning My Life Shall Come To Pass, Amen

“Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life [. . .].”

Psalm 23:6 (KJV)

You know after God created all things in Genesis, He said this is good. But after making man in His own image and likeness, He said this is very good. The goodness of God will overshadow you everywhere you go. The goodness of God will pursue you. It will not only pursue you, it will catch up with you and overtake you.

Every word God has spoken concerning your life will come to pass. The word that God has spoken concerning you has already overruled the power of darkness. So if the devil speaks, it is too late. Whatever the devil has spoken is too late because the word of God has gone ahead of you. And it shall come to pass in your life.

The devil will not cut you short. Plane crash will not kill you. Armed robbers will not kill you. Assassins will not kill you. Charms and enchantments will not kill you. Diseases will not kill you. You will fulfil the days of your life. Your life will preach the gospel. Whatever you lay your hands upon shall succeed. Your life shall remain a testimony. Everywhere you go, your light will shine. The light that is coming from you will overshadow all darkness.

As this year draws to a close, it will not end without your testimony. If in the last 11 months nothing has happened, don’t give up, don’t lose hope, there is still so much time left in the year for God to give you that miracle. In every area of your life, the Lord will satisfy you with His goodness. This year will be your greatest year yet. The devil will not have the final word in your life. God has not brought you this far to disappoint you. If no one testifies, you will testify. It is too late for the devil. You are about to break out, break forth, breakthrough and break in. Hallelujah! Amen!

The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want.

2 He maketh me to lie down in green pastures: he leadeth me beside the still waters.

3 He restoreth my soul: he leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for his name’s sake.

4 Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me.

5 Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies: thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over.

6 Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life: and I will dwell in the house of the Lord for ever.
Psalm 23:1-6

Salvation Prayers

If you don’t Know Jesus as your personal Lord and Saviour and would like to accept him into your life as your personal Lord and Saviour, Please say this prayer:

Father, I know that I have broken your laws and my sins have separated me from You. I am truly sorry, and now I want to turn away from my past sinful life toward You. Please forgive me, and help me avoid sinning again. I believe that Your son, Jesus Christ died for my sins, was resurrected from the dead, is alive, and hears my prayer. I invite Jesus to become the Lord of my life, to rule and reign in my heart from this day forward. Please send Your Holy Spirit to help me obey You, and to do Your Will for the rest of my life.

Joy Overflow. What My Enemies Meant For Evil, God Is Turning Them Around For My Good

Psalms_98-4: Make a joyful noise unto the LORD, all the earth: make a loud noise, and rejoice, and sing praise. Thank You Jesus

Psalms_98-4: Make a joyful noise unto the LORD, all the earth: make a loud noise, and rejoice, and sing praise .Thank You Jesus

Joy Overflow. What My Enemies Meant For Evil, God Is Turning Them Around For My Good

Therefore with joy shall ye draw water out of the wells of salvation.

Isaiah 12:3

You can make a withdrawal from your salvation account with joy. The wells of salvation are reservoirs of healing and blessing. Joy is your bucket to draw out your blessing. If you have great joy, you have a great bucket to draw much salvation.

James 1:2 says, “My brethren, count it all joy when you fall into divers temptations.” He did not say that it was a joy to have multiple troubles. He said to count it joy. Look at your problems and count. One joy…two joy…three joy…then laugh at the devil! What Satan meant for evil, God is turning around for your good. God paid too high a price for your victory for you to be defeated. Ha! Ha! Ha!

One translation of James 1:2 says to count it “Maximum Joy.” I like that! Smile, laugh, jump, shout, then dance turn it up and things will turn around!

Confession:

God brought me here to have a good time now I am going to have a good time! Hallelujah!

God Knows My Name. He Even Knows The Number Of Hairs On My Head

God Knows My Name. He Even Knows The Number Of Hairs On My Head

Matthew 10:30
But the very hairs of your head are all numbered.

Every day, your hair drops. Yet, God knows how many hairs are left on your head. And He also knows how many are growing back! He knows because He bothers to count them again. When it comes to you, He always has time for every little thing about you.

So when Jesus said, “But the very hairs of your head are all numbered,” He was not exaggerating. He never exaggerates. He means what He says and He says what He means. So for the Lord to say that the very hairs of your head are all numbered means that He wants you to know that He is very interested in you and has intimate knowledge about you—your body, family, finances, relationships…everything in your life!

He knows the pain you have been having in your body. He is aware of the financial worry which you have been keeping from your family. He sees how your nasty boss is treating you. He understands the hurts you have been keeping in your heart. He hears your heart’s cry for a miracle baby.

Your Heavenly Father wants you to know that as long as something concerns you, He does not overlook it.

God knows you intimately. He knows every small problem you are worried about and every single burden you have. And when you approach Him for help, He has all the time for you as if no one else exists. That is how valuable you are to Him and how absorbed He is in you! Thank You Jesus.

It Is Awesome For God To Send His Son Jesus Christ To Die In My Place

It Is Awesome For God To Send His Son Jesus Christ To Die In My Place

12 Wherefore, my beloved, as ye have always obeyed, not as in my presence only, but now much more in my absence, work out your own salvation with fear and trembling.

13 For it is God which worketh in you both to will and to do of his good pleasure.

Philippians 2:12-13

Salvation is a wonderful gift of God to mankind, it is awesome for God to send His son to die in our place and thereby redeem us from sin and satan and reconcile us to Himself. It is a free gift from God and once we confess our sins, ask for forgiveness and confess Jesus Christ as Lord and Saviour, we are saved, it’s straightforward.
Nevertheless, many Christians struggle in their walk with God, as they feel once they get saved things just begin to work out, they feel they ought to become holy and immune to temptation automatically. Our text today makes it clear that, there is work to be done on our own part, it is like the case of a student who wants a university degree and has been given a free entry and scholarship into the university, the student still has to study, he can’t just assume he will graduate automatically without any effort on his own part, he has to attend lectures, study hard, write exams and pass.
So our walk with God requires ‘work’, we have to cultivate, carry out the goal, and fully complete our salvation; we need to work it for it to work for us. We need to know that it is a walk of Faith, (2 Corinthians 5:7), and not of fear that comes from sight walking, when we pray, we should believe that God will answer and ‘act’ accordingly.
We also ought to walk with self-distrust, with serious caution, tenderness of conscience, watchfulness against temptation, timidly shrinking from whatever might offend God and discredit the name of Christ.
Most important of all , we must know that we cannot do it by our power, and that it is God Who is all the while effectually at work in us [energizing and creating in us the power and desire], both to will and to work for His good pleasure and satisfaction and delight.
It becomes easier when we have more of God in our lives and less of ‘us’ in us.

Confession

I will not be lazy with regards of my salvation, I have the grace and strength to continuously work it out. Hallelujah!

Are You Industrious? Sermon And Prayer Points By Pastor E A Adeboye

Are You Industrious? Sermon And Prayer Points By Pastor E A Adeboye

Memorise:
Love Not Sleep, Lest Thou Come To Poverty; Open Thine Eyes, And Thou Shalt Be Satisfied With Bread.
Proverb 20:13

Read: Proverbs 31:10-13
10 Who Can Find A Virtuous Woman? For Her Price Is Far Above Rubies.
11 The Heart Of Her Husband Doth Safely Trust In Her, So That He Shall Have No Need Of Spoil.
12 She Will Do Him Good And Not Evil All The Days Of Her Life.
13 She Seeketh Wool, And Flax, And Worketh Willingly With Her Hands.

Message
In The School Of Life, Those Who Are Prone To Giving Excuses End Up As Failures. Greatness In Life Is Not For The Slothful But For The Diligent. It Is Not For Men Of Theoretical Faith, But For Those Who Can Put Their Faith Into Action. There Are Many People Walking Around Blind To Opportunities. They Always Complain About The Economic Situation Of Their Country, And For This Reason, They Have Refused To Take Their Destinies In Their Own Hands. Nothing Moves Until You Move. There Are Opportunities All Around You, But If You Can’t See Them, They Will Not Translate Into Tangible Results. To Be Industrious Is To Be Hardworking, Conscientious, Diligent And Productive. John 15:16 Says:

“Ye Have Not Chosen Me, But I Have Chosen You, And Ordained You, That Ye Should Go And Bring Forth Fruit, And That Your Fruit Should Remain: That Whatsoever Ye Shall Ask Of The Father In My Name, He May Give It You.”
God Expects His Children To Be Productive And Be Creative In Their Thinking. The Fact That You Belong To God Should Make You See Solutions To Issues Where Others Only See Problems. The Spiritual Controls The Physical; This Is Why You Need To Ask God To Open Your Spiritual Eyes. You Need To See The Good Things Coming Your Way From Afar Off, So That As They Come, You Can Tap Into Them. There Are Many People Sitting And Living Around Opportunities Without Exploring Them. There Is No Future For Lazy Fellows.

The Life God Expects From The Industrious Is A Life Of Fruitfulness In Every Area. Fruitfulness Is A Covenant Benefit Of God’s Children. If You Are Still In School, You Need To Be Industrious In Order To Graduate With Excellent Grades. If You Are Serving In God’s Ministry, You Need To Be Industrious, So That You Can Access The Anointing Required For Doing Spiritual Exploits. If You Are Engaged In Business, You Need To Be Hard-Working To Make More Profits And Access Greater Business Opportunities. If You Are In The Corporate World, Being Industrious Will Put You On The Cutting Edge Of Your Career. You Need To Keep Growing. You Need To Develop Yourself For The Glorious Future You See Ahead Of You. You Must Not Be Distracted With Those Things That Will Not Enhance The Quick Actualisation Of Your God-Given Dreams. There Is No Need Losing Your Head Over What You Don’t Have. What You Have Is More Than Enough For Your Breakthrough. Never Be Afraid Of Starting Small. Ask The Lord To Open Your Eyes So That You Can Multiply The Seed In Your Hands To Become A Forest.

Key Point:
Whatever You Don’t Value Can Never Add Value To You.

Attracting Greater Love Of God. Sermon And Prayer Points By Pastor E A Adeboye

Attracting Greater Love Of God. Sermon And Prayer Points By Pastor E A Adeboye

Memorise:
For It Became Him, For Whom Are All Things, And By Whom Are All Things, In Bringing Many Sons Unto Glory, To Make The Captain Of Their Salvation Perfect Through Sufferings.
Hebrews 2:10

Read: Genesis 22:15-18
15 And The Angel Of The Lord Called Unto Abraham Out Of Heaven The Second Time,
16 And Said, By Myself Have I Sworn, Saith The Lord, For Because Thou Hast Done This Thing, And Hast Not Withheld Thy Son, Thine Only Son:
17 That In Blessing I Will Bless Thee, And In Multiplying I Will Multiply Thy Seed As The Stars Of The Heaven, And As The Sand Which Is Upon The Sea Shore; And Thy Seed Shall Possess The Gate Of His Enemies;
18 And In Thy Seed Shall All The Nations Of The Earth Be Blessed; Because Thou Hast Obeyed My Voice.

Message
Your Love For God Is Something You Must Prove To Be Genuine. God Is Not Satisfied With Verbal Affirmations Only. He Is Not Satisfied With Promises To Love Surrounded By Procrastination. He Wants To See Your Love For Real; Hence, 1 John 3:18 Says:
“My Little Children, Let Us Not Love In Word, Neither In Tongue; But In Deed And In Truth.”
Have You Been Able To Prove Your Love For God Beyond Words? One Beautiful Truth Here Is That Whenever You Demonstrate Your Love For God, It Will Attract Greater Love From Him. This Principle Can Also Be Seen In The Natural World.
If I Smile At You, Unless You Are Angry With Me, You Will Return The Smile. Every Time You Prove To God That You Love Him, He Will Reciprocate By Showing You Greater Love. In Acts 20:35, Apostle Paul Echoed The Words Of Our Lord Jesus Christ That It Is Better To Give Than To Receive. Many People Find It Hard To Understand This. Simply Put, It Is Better To Give Because When You Give, You Automatically Open The Door To Receive More Than What You Gave.

The Act Of Giving Is Subject To The Law Of Harvest; Therefore, Everyone Who Gives Receives Something Much More Than What Was Given, Because The Harvest Is Usually Greater Than The Seed Sown. Hebrews 2:9-10 Tells Us That When God Gave His Only Begotten Son, He Brought Many More Sons Into Glory. God Gave One Son And Now Has Millions Of Sons And Daughters From Different Parts Of The World. There Are Some Desires That You May Not Receive Until You Give. There Are Certain Great Requests That May Appear Illusive Until You Give Your Best Seed. For You To Be Able To Receive All Your Requests, You Must First Be Prepared To Pay Any Price By Giving Anything God Wants You To.
What You Are Prepared To Give Determines The Extent To Which God Is Compelled To Give To You In Return. Are You Ready To Pay The Ultimate Sacrifice? Sacrificial Giving Never Goes Unrewarded. After Jesus Laid Down His Life For The Sins Of The World, He Was Rewarded With The Name Above Every Other Name (Philippians 2:8-11). Similarly, After Abraham Demonstrated His Love For God, The Lord Swore To Bless Abraham And His Children Beyond Measure, Promising To Multiply His Generations Like The Sand On The Seashore. What Are You Doing To Prove Your Love For God Today?

Key Point:
Every Act Of Love Towards God Is A Seed Sown On The Best Soil, Which Will Definitely Generate A Great Harvest Of Love.

I Am Blessed Beyond Measures In Christ Jesus. The Spirit Of Excellence Lives In Me

I Am Blessed Beyond Measures In Christ Jesus. The Spirit Of Excellence Lives In Me

Deuteronomy 28:4
“Blessed shall be the fruit of your body, the produce of your ground and the increase of your herds, the increase of your cattle and the offspring of your flocks.

Would you want to buy a chair that Jesus made? I would, even if it cost US$1,000 because it would be of superb quality. Whatever Jesus did, He did it with perfect excellence.

And because Christ is in you, the things which you produce will be of exceptional quality too. That includes your children, who will be champions. Deuteronomy 28:4 says, “Blessed shall be the fruit of your body, the produce of your ground and the increase of your herds, the increase of your cattle and the offspring of your flocks”.

God was using terms that the Israelites understood since they were farmers and shepherds. Today, “your ground” is the place of your work. This means that “the produce” of your work shall be of excellent quality.

That is not all. God promises that quantity will always follow quality because Deuteronomy 28:11 says that the Lord will “grant you plenty of goods, in the fruit of your body,” which means that you will have plenty of children, “in the increase of your livestock, and in the produce of your ground,” which means that your business will flourish and you will be a leading producer in the area of your specialty.

My friend, your excellence and plenty do not come by your efforts. They come by the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, who paid for you to have divine provision—“though He was rich, yet for your sakes He became poor, that you through His poverty might become rich”. (2 Corinthians 8:9)

Jesus was made destitute of all material things at the cross. He had nothing! As He hung on the cross, He watched the Roman soldiers gamble for His robe. His last possession on earth was gambled away. He became poor, so that you could be blessed with the excellent and the plenty!

God Will Not Remember My Sins Or Count Them Against Me, All Because Of Jesus

God Will Not Remember My Sins Or Count Them Against Me, All Because Of Jesus

Romans 4:7–8
“Blessed are those whose lawless deeds are forgiven, and whose sins are covered; blessed is the man to whom the Lord shall not impute sin.”

Some people think that if they were more “right” with God, then He would hear their prayers. For example, they sometimes believe that if they had not quarrelled with their wives or had those bad thoughts earlier in the day, then God would answer their prayers.

God is not like that. He wants you to know beyond any doubt that you can always come to His throne of grace with boldness and have every confidence that you will receive His mercy and grace. (Hebrews 4:16) You see, because of Jesus’ finished work on the cross, you are already right with God. You don’t need to do anything to make yourself more right with God.

In fact, by faith in Jesus, you have received the righteousness of God Himself! (2 Corinthians 5:21) And no matter how many mistakes you make, you will never lose that righteousness because in the first place, God gave it to you apart from your works. (Romans 4:5–6) In other words, God did not impute righteousness to you because you were good, but because you believed in Jesus.

Because of what Jesus has done for you at the cross, all your sins—past, present and future—are forgiven. God will by no means ever remember your sins or count them against you! (Hebrews 8:12, 10:17)

My friend, because Jesus has been punished for your sins, today, God is not counting your sins against you. This means that your sins won’t stop Him from hearing and responding to your prayers. So you can always run into His presence knowing that you can boldly stand in and enjoy His presence and His love.

When you know this truth, it is going to set you free in your relationship with God. You can talk to Him without fear or any sense of condemnation. You can practice His presence and trust that He always hears you. Should something happen at home or at work, you don’t always have to call for your church leaders—you pray and God hears you!

Beloved, you are righteous in Christ and God hears your prayers—all because of Jesus!

Ruth 4:15
And may he be to you a restorer of life and a nourisher of your old age…

Famine impoverished the life of Naomi, an Israelite. But it was the deaths of her husband and two sons that left her completely destitute. (Ruth 1:1–5) Or so she thought, until Boaz, who was a wealthy and close relative, entered her life.

As her kinsman-redeemer, Boaz married Ruth, Naomi’s widowed daughter-in-law. And through that union, Naomi had a grandson. The birth of her grandson gave her a new lease of life, causing the womenfolk in her village to declare that the restorer of life and the nourisher of her old age had come into her life. (Ruth 4:14–16)

Boaz is a picture of Jesus, our Kinsman-Redeemer. Jesus became our kinsman when He was born into this world as one like us. And He became our Redeemer when He paid with His life and blood at the cross to redeem us.

Jesus gave Himself to us as our restorer of life and nourisher of our old age. When the restorer of life is in our lives, what we have lost can be restored. (Joel 2:25−26) And with the nourisher of our old age in us, our bodies can be gloriously renewed even though we advance in our years.

That is why when Moses died at the age of 120, his eyes were not dim and his natural vigor was not diminished. (Deuteronomy 34:7) Caleb, at 85 years old, could still drive out the giants from the land. God had literally nourished his body and made it strong for war. (Joshua 14:11) Sarah was certainly rejuvenated in her old age by God for she was still desirable to a king at the age of 90. (Genesis 20:1–2) God even renewed her womb. She received strength to conceive seed (Hebrews 11:11), giving birth to Isaac in her old age.

Beloved, God is outside of time and your faith in Him brings you into this timeless zone. There, what the years have stolen will be restored. And even as your years increase, you will not grow weak and weary because the restorer of life and nourisher of your old age is in you!

I Am So Quick To Come To God In Times Of Need

I Am So Quick To Come To God In Times Of Need

Oh, that men would give thanks to the Lord for His goodness, and for His wonderful works to the children of men! – (Psalm 107:21)

How like us to forget to give thanks. We are so quick to come to God in times of need. We pray, “Lord, get me out of this” or “Lord intervene” or “Lord, provide for me.” We call on the Lord and then when He answers, we don’t offer up a word of thanks.

Worse yet is when we chalk it up to dumb luck. It reminds me of the guy who was on the roof of a three-story house, nailing down a loose shingle. Suddenly he lost his footing and began to slide. Knowing he was about to fall to his death, he cried out to God, praying, “Help me! Save me! God, don’t let me die! God, do something! Save me!”

Then, as he was nearing the edge of the roof, his belt loop suddenly caught on a nail, which stopped him. This allowed him to grab hold and then climb back up again. Reaching safety, he called out, “It’s okay, God! I got caught on a nail!”

That is how we are sometimes. We say, “Oh, Lord, provide for me. I have this financial need. Lord, You’ve got to come through for me.”

Then the next day, a rebate check for the exact amount arrives in the mail. “It’s okay, Lord,” we say. “The rebate check showed up.”

Do we ever stop and think, however, that God has provided that for us?

Are you giving God the glory for what He has done? We are so quick to ask for His help. But let’s remember to give Him the praise when He comes through. We should be as definite in returning thanks as we are in requesting help. Far too often we call on God in times of crisis, but we don’t follow through with our thanks.

God Wants To Bless Me Big Time

Ephesians_1-3. Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who hath blessed us with all spiritual blessings in heavenly places in Christ:

Ephesians_1-3. Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who hath blessed us with all spiritual blessings in heavenly places in Christ:

God Wants To Bless Me Big Time

Luke 5:4
When He had stopped speaking, He said to Simon, “Launch out into the deep and let down your nets for a catch.”

God wants to bless you—big-time! It was for this reason that He said to Simon, “Launch out into the deep and let down your nets for a catch.” The deep is where you will find a whole lot of fish. You won’t find them near the shore in shallow waters. But to launch out into the deep is to move away from the comfort of the shoreline.

My friend, God wants you to break away from your comfort zone and step out in faith to do what He has put in your heart. It may be something simple, but which you have never done before or only dreamt of, like attending a care group. A church member did just that and found love. Today, she is happily married.

Now, our Lord Jesus who said, “Launch out into the deep…” also said, “…let down your nets for a catch.” Notice that He used the plural “nets” and not the singular “net”. Beloved, God wants to give you more than what you need. His dream for you is bigger than anything you can ever dream of. Dream big and God will exceed your dream because He delights in giving you exceedingly abundantly above all that you ask or think. (Ephesians 3:20)

Another church member who was formerly working for someone else had wanted to start his own company. When praying with him, I received a word from the Lord for him to launch out on his own. When he did that, he made a handsome profit at the end of the first month alone! Today, he has more than one company and his businesses are flourishing. God is blessing him beyond his wildest dreams!

Beloved, God wants to bless you beyond your wildest dreams. He did it for Simon who was astonished at the size of the catch of fish. (Luke 5:9) But it was not until Simon launched out into the deep that he ended up with the net-breaking, boat-sinking load of fish. (Luke 5:6–7) You, too, will be astonished at your catch when you step out of your comfort zone and launch out into the deep with the Lord!

Power Of Praise

Psalms_9-1: I will praise thee, O LORD, with my whole heart; I will shew forth all thy marvellous works.

Text: Act 16:25-26

25 And at midnight Paul and Silas prayed, and sang praises unto God: and the prisoners heard them.

Introduction:
In Psalm 24:1 the Bible tells us that, “The earth is the Lord’s, and the fulness thereof; the world, and they that dwell therein.”
He owns everything and He doesn’t need anything from men except thanksgiving and praise. Praise means uplifting the name of God and giving Him all the glory.

Psalms_63-3: Because thy lovingkindness is better than life, my lips shall praise thee.

Psalms_63-3: Because thy lovingkindness is better than life, my lips shall praise thee.

Why do we need to praise the Lord?

1. Praise brings down the glory of God
Psalm 89:1
“I will sing of the mercies of the Lord for ever: with my mouth will I make known thy faithfulness to all generations.”

2. It is God’s command.

3. God inhabits the praise of His people.
1 Samuel 2:2
“There is none holy as the LORD: for there is none beside thee: neither is there any rock like our God.”

4. Praise provokes direct blessings from God.
(Psalm 50:23)
“He who offers a sacrifice of thanksgiving honors Me; And to him who orders his way aright I shall show the salvation of God.”

Psalms_113-3: From the rising of the sun unto the going down of the same the LORD'S name is to be praised

Psalms_113-3: From the rising of the sun unto the going down of the same the LORD’S name is to be praised

Psalm 103:1-22

Praise the Lord, my soul!

All my being, praise his holy name!

2 Praise the Lord, my soul,

and do not forget how kind he is.

3 He forgives all my sins

and heals all my diseases.

4 He keeps me from the grave

and blesses me with love and mercy.

5 He fills my life[b] with good things,

so that I stay young and strong like an eagle.

6 The Lord judges in favor of the oppressed

and gives them their rights.

7 He revealed his plans to Moses

and let the people of Israel see his mighty deeds.

8 The Lord is merciful and loving,

slow to become angry and full of constant love.

9 He does not keep on rebuking;

he is not angry forever.

10 He does not punish us as we deserve

or repay us according to our sins and wrongs.

11 As high as the sky is above the earth,

so great is his love for those who honor him.

12 As far as the east is from the west,

so far does he remove our sins from us.

13 As a father is kind to his children,

so the Lord is kind to those who honor him.

14 He knows what we are made of;

he remembers that we are dust.

15 As for us, our life is like grass.

We grow and flourish like a wild flower;

16     then the wind blows on it, and it is gone—

no one sees it again.

17 But for those who honor the Lord, his love lasts forever,

and his goodness endures for all generations

18 of those who are true to his covenant

and who faithfully obey his commands.

19 The Lord placed his throne in heaven;

he is king over all.

20 Praise the Lord, you strong and mighty angels,

who obey his commands,

who listen to what he says.

21 Praise the Lord, all you heavenly powers,

you servants of his, who do his will!

22 Praise the Lord, all his creatures

in all the places he rules.

Praise the Lord, my soul!

Psalms_139-14: I will praise thee; for I am fearfully and wonderfully made: marvellous are thy works; and that my soul knoweth right well.

Psalms_139-14: I will praise thee; for I am fearfully and wonderfully made: marvellous are thy works; and that my soul knoweth right well.

 

5. Praise moves God to action
Psalm 107:15-16
“Oh that men would praise the LORD for his goodness, and for his wonderful works to the children of men! For he hath broken the gates of brass, and cut the bars of iron in sunder.”

6. Praise brings down God’s awesome presence
Revelation 4:11
“Thou art worthy, O Lord, to receive glory and honour and power: for thou hast created all things, and for thy pleasure they are and were created.”

7. Praise makes you get the best from God.
Psalm 48:14
“For this God is our God for ever and ever: he will be our guide even unto death”

Psalms_108-3: I will praise thee, O LORD, among the people: and I will sing praises unto thee among the nations

Psalms_108-3: I will praise thee, O LORD, among the people: and I will sing praises unto thee among the nations

O Worship The Lord In The Beauty Of Holiness!

Jeremiah_32-27: Behold, I am the LORD, the God of all flesh: is there any thing too hard for me?

Jeremiah_32-27: Behold, I am the LORD, the God of all flesh: is there any thing too hard for me?

O Worship The Lord In The Beauty Of Holiness!

Bow down before Him, His glory proclaim;
With gold of obedience, and incense of lowliness,
Kneel and adore Him: the Lord is His Name!

Low at His feet lay thy burden of carefulness,
High on His heart He will bear it for thee,
Comfort thy sorrows, and answer thy
prayerfulness,
Guiding thy steps as may best for thee be.

Fear not to enter His courts in the slenderness
Of the poor wealth thou wouldst reckon as thine;
Truth in its beauty, and love in its tenderness,
These are the offerings to lay on His shrine.

These, though we bring them in trembling and
fearfulness,
He will accept for the Name that is dear;
Mornings of joy give for evenings of tearfulness,
Trust for our trembling and hope for our fear.

Psalms_28-7: The LORD is my strength and my shield; my heart trusted in him, and I am helped: therefore my heart greatly rejoiceth; and with my song will I praise him.
