Exploring The Potency of The Word

Exploring The Potency of The Word

Reading Time: < 1 minute

We are still looking at a verse in the book of Jeremiah. And today we will be exploring the potency of the Word.

Then you will call upon me and come and pray to me, and I will hear you.

Jeremiah 29:12 [ESV]

Yesterday’s devotional was about prayer.

Today, we will be talking about CONFESSING GOD’S WORD.

This means speaking out God’s promises to come into manifestation in your life. This should be a habit.

Children, ensure that you always confess God’s promises into your lives till you see the manifestation.

Always confess, saying:

I shall be the head and not the tail.

I am for signs and wonders.

The Lord give His angels charge over me to guide me in all my ways.

The Lord will satisfy me with long life…and so on.

The more you do this, the more you have strength for daily living.

God bless you. Amen

Prayer:
Lord, help me to understand the potency of your word in Jesus name.

Action point:
Declare God’s promises over your life.

Declaration:
My children confess God’s word always. They daily declare God’s word over their affairs.

The Difference Between Love And Lust

The Difference Between Love And Lust

Reading Time: 4 minutes

Our generation is beleaguered with so much pressure that believers are even compromising heavily, and yet the truth is that God will not lower or change his standard because of the peculiarity of our generation or the pressures of our environment. God’s word remains forever. Love differs from lust.

Look at the following verse:

Eph 4:17 KJV
This I say therefore, and testify in the Lord, that ye henceforth walk not as other Gentiles walk, in the vanity of their mind,’

The Spirit of God writing through Paul here says, as children of God, we cannot walk as the unbelievers walk. There has to be a distinguishing. We cannot be lumped together. Our light must shine in the midst of darkness. We must stand out. The life of God in us will not allow us to live carelessly.

Message translation says we cannot move with the crowd!

Eph 4:17 MSG
And so I insist–and God backs me up on this–that there be no going along with the crowd, the empty-headed, mindless crowd.

You as a child of God cannot flow with the tide. Having done all, you’ve got to stand, unmoved, unshaken and unyielded to the grip of iniquity.

Verse 20 says:

Eph 4:20 KJV
But ye have not so learned Christ;

That is not what we learn about Christ when we gave our life to Christ. At what point did we accommodate the devil’s antics into the program of our lives? At what point did we think that as a child of God, you can be dating three people at a time? At what point did we somehow believe that God does not mind us having emotional affairs that our spouses are not aware of?

At what point did we start combining a life of fornication with a life of leading others in worship? At what point did pastors think they can go free with sleeping with naïve church members because they are anointed? That is not how we learned Christ!

Take a look more at the scriptures:

Eph 5:1 MSG
Watch what God does, and then you do it, like children who learn proper behavior from their parents.

Amplified version says to be imitators of God. How do we do that when we cannot see Him? We watch what He does by watching what He has done in His word. As we read God’s word, we learn His ways and we understand how we are supposed to live here.

Let’s look at the next verse:

Eph 5:2 MSG
Mostly what God does is love you. Keep company with him and learn a life of love. Observe how Christ loved us. His love was not cautious but extravagant. He didn’t love in order to get something from us but to give everything of himself to us. Love like that.

You’ve got to learn a life of love and not a life of lust. God did not love in order to get something from us! The moment you say you are in love with a person and then you want something you can get, either money or fun, you have moved from love into lust. People ask me, how can I know whether he or she loves me? That is the answer right there!

Love wants to improve the other person’s life, not deplete it. If you are in a relationship with a person, and your Christian life goes down, watch it. God will not lead you into a relationship where all you have is the anguish of the soul, a life iniquity, and a life full of lust. You cannot tell me you love a lady whom you have impregnated thrice and paid for abortions. That is not love!

Look at the next verse:

Eph 5:3 MSG
Don’t allow love to turn into lust, setting off a downhill slide into sexual promiscuity, filthy practices, or bullying greed.

The moment you get involved in some perversion; that is no longer love. It’s lust. How can two believers who are not married be compromising habitually? That is no longer love! If the guys end up in bullying greed, always having his way, and even quoting scripture to justify a sinful lifestyle, that is no longer love.

Let’s conclude with the next verse:

Eph 5:4 MSG
Though some tongues just love the taste of gossip, Christians have better uses for language than that. Don’t talk dirty or silly. That kind of talk doesn’t fit our style. Thanksgiving is our dialect.

As children of God, you should have better uses of your mouth than gossip. Don’t join some others to tear apart your leaders after a church service. Something is not quite right with that. Stop tearing apart your Pastor’s wife.

The scripture advises, don’t talk dirty or silly. Why? That is the same mouth you are supposed to use to confess your way into what you want to possess.

Dirty and silly talk doesn’t fit our style. You cannot be using the ‘F” word and tell me God is okay with that! That is not our style. Our style doesn’t permit punctuating every word with the ‘F” word or with words like ‘Shit!’ Why? Thanksgiving is our dialect! You see it right there. All these things matter!

Conclusively, Amplified version puts it this way:

Eph 5:4 AMP
Let there be no filthiness (obscenity, indecency) nor foolish and sinful (silly and corrupt) talk, nor coarse jesting, which are not fitting or becoming; but instead voice your thankfulness [to God].

Call God to help you and cleanse you if you have the need to, He is always there to bail you out, if you make up your mind.

Selah!

Dear Singles, Stop That Comparison – Part 2

Dear Singles, Stop That Comparison – Part 2

Reading Time: 2 minutes

Dear singles, It’s vital we don’t compare ourselves with one another. That is why this topic is being taught. We started yesterday and we looked at reasons you cannot compare yourself with others. You can read it here.

Let’s look at a few more things today.

Our anchor scripture remains;

For we dare not make ourselves of the number, or compare ourselves with some that commend themselves: but they measuring themselves by themselves, and comparing themselves among themselves, are not wise. (2 Corinthians 10:12 KJV)

Dear singles, these are the following things to do to become free from comparison traps?

1. Know who you are in God
To overcome comparison traps, you have to know who you are in God! Declare your stand in God and keep confessing that.

2. Acknowledge the good things in you.
The scriptures says

That the communication of thy faith may become effectual by the acknowledging of every good thing which is in you in Christ Jesus. (Philemon 1:6 KJV)

When you recognize and acknowledge every good thing in you, your gifting and talents, the communication of your faith or the effectiveness of your spiritual life will become a reality.

3. Fill yourself with God’s word
To deal with comparison traps, you have to keep filling yourself with God’s word. The word of God is like a mirror.

But we all, with open face beholding as in a glass the glory of the Lord, are changed into the same image from glory to glory, even as by the Spirit of the Lord. (2 Corinthians 3:18 KJV)

When you begin to read and study God’s word, you will be changed into the picture of that which God shows you in His word. You will be free from comparing yourself with other mortals.

4. Learn to praise God for all things.
Learn to praise God always and appreciate Him for what He has done and what He is doing in your life! At the root of comparison trap is an ungrateful heart. As you begin to genuinely appreciate God for His mercies and His blessings, you will be severed from unnecessary pressure to compare yourself with others.

I pray for you this morning and by the Spirit of God, I declare that all wrong spirits behind competitive jealousy lose their power over you in Jesus name!

CONFESSION FOR THE DAY
I will not be a victim of competitive jealousy

PRAYER FOR THE DAY
Declare over your life your freedom from all wrong spirits

THOUGHT FOR THE DAY
Now unto him that is able to keep you from falling, and to present you faultless before the presence of his glory with exceeding joy, (Jude 1:24 KJV)

ACTION PLAN FOR THE DAY
Free yourself form all comparisons from today
