Studying About Jesus

Studying About Jesus

Reading Time: < 1 minute

Jesus is one important person you cannot help but study about. Studying about Jesus is important, and the bible talks about Him all through from the start to the end.

You could start from the prophecies about Him, His conception, birth, death, and resurrection. These are key aspects of His life that will definitely benefit and bless your life.

Study what He did, how He did it, where He did it and why He did it. It’s a wonderful thing to study about Jesus. His whole being and existence is the bedrock of salvation.

And as you study, ask Him to bless you with a revelation about Him. Amen.

Prayer:
Lord Jesus, give me more revelation about you. Help me know you more. Amen.

Action point:
Take your time to study about Christ.

Declaration:
As I study, there is illumination on my path.

The Work Of The Holy Spirit

The Work Of The Holy Spirit

Reading Time: 2 minutes

The Holy Spirit works in us. Thirteen-year-old Funmi asked her mother for some money but her request wasn’t granted. When her mother went to the kitchen, Funmi quickly took money out of her mother’s purse.

She felt good knowing that she had money to spend with her friends at school. Her friends always had lots of money to spend at school and she didn’t want to be any different.

But she kept having a feeling. As much as she was happy, the feelings of happiness were slowly dwindling. What could it be, she wondered. Soon, she began to feel bad about taking the money. 

A voice kept telling her it was wrong of her to have taken the money. It kept telling her she had stolen the money. But I didn’t steal the money, Funmi said to herself. It’s my mother’s money and she has lots of it.

Funmi was hearing the voice of the Holy Spirit. When you sin, the Holy Spirit convicts you of it. He speaks to your heart and tells you what you did wrong.

When the Holy Spirit speaks to you and can convict you to the point where you change your ways or confess your wrongdoings, you are stillborn in a safe zone. You still have a conscience.

Funmi didn’t spend the money at school that day or went with her friends to buy things. She felt bad about taking the money and knew what she had to do – tell her mother the truth, ask for her forgiveness, and never steal again in her life.

May the Holy Spirit give you a healthy conscience. Amen.

Prayer

Sweet Spirit of God, thank you for the power to convict me of all sins. Please give me a heart that will listen and obey you in Jesus’ name. Amen.

Action point: 

Has the Holy Spirit ever spoken to you about something wrong you did? How did you respond? Did you do what He said or not? Decide to always listen to and obey His instructions.

Declaration:

My conscience is not seared. I listen and obey the Holy Spirit.

Three Areas To Pay Attention To As Singles

Three Areas To Pay Attention To As Singles

Reading Time: 2 minutes

I want to quickly discuss three areas that I believe all singles should pay attention to. These areas will affect all other areas of our lives, invariably.

Here they are:

  1. Food Intake
    As singles, you need to take care of your body. Watch what you eat! Like someone savagely puts it, don’t let your teeth become shovels with which you dig your grave!

But in reality, that is what happens to some people. That will not be your portion in Jesus name!

Some of us are addicted to certain kinds of food. This is not good.

It is a lack of self-control that will make you overeat. The one who overeats and the one who gets high on drugs are basically the same.

Gluttony is a terrible sin the bible frowns at. The Bible says

For the drunkard and the glutton shall come to poverty: and drowsiness shall clothe a man with rags.

Pro 23:21

No matter how strong the spirit is, once the body comes apart, the spirit will have to move. This is why it is important to take care of your body.

  1. Money
    You are supposed to have money, not more having you. Money is good, but the love of it is evil according to scriptural injunctions.

You must not allow the Mammon spirit to take over your life and regulate it. You must continually love God and never allow the love of money to be prioritized above God in your life.

Honor God with your finances and see him lift you up.

  1. Your Love walk
    Avoid all works of the flesh as bitterness, bickering, animosities, and unforgiving spirit.

Learn to forgive quickly and really quick. This way, you will not harbor a wrong spirit within you.

Be blessed in Jesus name.

CONFESSION FOR TODAY
I am disciplined.

PRAYER FOR TODAY
Lord, help me to pay attention to these areas.

THOUGHT FOR TODAY
Proverbs 9:10 (KJV)The fear of the LORD is the beginning of wisdom: and the knowledge of the holy is understanding.

ACTION PLAN FOR TODAY
Put your body under.

BIBLE READING FOR TODAY
Prov 9

Handling Stress In Marriage – Part 6

Handling Stress In Marriage – Part 6

Reading Time: 3 minutes

Well, we have finally come to the end of our series on handling stress in marriage.

In our final series, I will be talking about

  1. Ungratefulness

The whole bible is from the old testament to the new testament has several instances where gratitude, Thanksgiving, the gratefulness of heart is encouraged and even commanded.

The human heart has the capacity to be ungrateful and to forget where we were and where we were coming from. Once we get relieved, we are quick to forget the hands that held us up.

Now, I would like to write today about gratitude to God and gratitude to those who were there for us and how it helps in handling stress in marriage.

If we don’t learn to show appreciation and train ourselves to be thoughtful enough to show gratitude, we will stress our partners.

No matter how difficult your spouse is, we can still choose to be grateful to God for them.
Someone said, don’t complain you have an headache, thank God that you even have a head.

How true this is. On matter our condition, the place of praise and thanksgiving will still remain intact.
We may however, choose not to see it or cease the opportunity to be grateful.

Let check out few places in the bible we were admonished to live a thankful life.

Enter his gates with thanksgiving; go into his courts with praise. Give thanks to him and praise his name.
Psalms 100:4 NLT

Don’t worry about anything; instead, pray about everything. Tell God what you need, and thank him for all he has done.
Philippians 4:6 NLT

And give thanks for everything to God the Father in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ.
Ephesians 5:20 NLT

And let the peace that comes from Christ rule in your hearts. For as members of one body you are called to live in peace. And always be thankful.
Colossians 3:15 NLT

We are encouraged in scriptures to show gratitude to God in everything and at all times.

If you think, you will be able to thank.
If you think that you didn’t create yourself, you can’t sustain yourself, the breadth that you breadth you didn’t provide it for yourself, the hair on your head, you didn’t put it there, that you go to work and come back meeting everything intact is because God is a merciful God.

So when you think of all the goodness of the Lord you should return gratitude to Him.

If you are grateful for the many things God has done for you, it will also flow also in gratitude to others. It is the same heart it takes to be grateful to God that it takes to be grateful to others.

A spouse who is always complaining and has an entitlement mentality is a pain in the neck.

When a couple learn to appreciate each other in little things and show gratitude for efforts and every little attempt to improve, there will be bliss.

It takes a heart of understanding to give thanks. Someone said when you are thankful your tank will be full. This is the one of the best things to do when handling stress.

Everything dries up in an atmosphere of complaint.

Don’t put the strain on your marriage rather put the strain off your marriage.

I hope we have learnt one or two things from our series.

Your marriage is a living entity, and as such you don’t want to do things that will quench the fire of passion.

I pray if any marriage is being besiege by stress or its effect, God will cause peace to reign in Jesus name

God bless our marriage.

These Notions About Relationships Are So Wrong

These Notions About Relationships Are So Wrong

Reading Time: 4 minutes

Marriage is instituted by God. The devil hates marriages. That is why the devil attacks marriages with a passion. A lot of people have terribly wrong notions of what marriage is.

In looking at the scriptures, we see a picture of what marriage is supposed to be. This morning, we’ll look at some of those underlining principles. Here are some wrong notions.

1. Marriage is a necessary evil

God does not create evil. In Genesis, everything He created, He said, “It is good.” However, the devil has succeeded in most people at misrepresenting the original intentions of God as concerning marriage. Marriage is not a necessary evil. If it were, then God will be unjust to set us up in that way. If I may put things in perspective, I will say Marriage is a blessing. It is a beautiful, thoughtful idea of God on humanity.

God’s idea is that one will chase a thousand, but two shall put ten thousand to a flight! God’s idea is that in marriage, your strength is multiplied. Marriage is not a nemesis, it is not a mistake, it is a divine arrangement of God to fulfill His purpose on earth.

2. Marriage is not necessary; I can just have one or two children

I have heard several ladies say this. I don’t want to get married to any man, but I want to have children. In the arrangement of God, children are supposed to come from a couple, a husband and wife, a man and a woman. God created Adam and Eve, not Adam and Steve, not Eve and Eva! God’s idea is that children are raised in the atmosphere of love, with a man and a woman, a father and a mother. Every time, that man has flouted this, it has landed him into trouble.

Our prisons are filled today with people in a large percentage that were raised without a father or mother figure. Every time, a father or a mother was not there, it had produced dysfunctional children and ultimately dysfunctional families. By the time you have a dysfunctional generation, what you have in the end is a dysfunctional society.

3. There are no good men; all the good men have died

This is a wrong conclusion. Usually, ladies who have gone through harrowing and unpleasant experiences and disappointments in the hands of several men usually sing this song. Well, experiences, no matter how intense, cannot replace the truth of God’s word.

The reality is that there are still faithful men and good men! The danger here is that what you believe is what you attract. That is the law of life.

You see, it is always good to do things God’s way and not try to put things into your hands. When you try to follow your own limited wisdom, things can really get awful. You are not designed to do it by yourself or in your own strength!

4. You cannot be a ‘celebrity’ and have a good marriage

This is another lie of the devil. First of all, who does God see as a celebrity? I am not sure it is the same way our society views that. But that topic is for another day. Let’s follow the secular definition of who a ‘celebrity’ is.

Here are few things that usually land them in many unsuccessful attempts at marriage.

a. They have a lot of fame. With that comes a massive ego and a lot of pride. Usually, the selflessness that makes a marriage work does not come with all that.

b. They have a lot of money, so submitting to a husband or loving a woman is a great challenge. Without the constant renewal of mind which comes as a result of God’s word, this is usually a challenge.

c. There is something called deceitfulness of riches. It makes one feel you can do all you want to do and you don’t really need God. But then, this kind of attitude to life usually comes with its consequences as seen in today’s world.

d. They usually stay away from marriage because they feel that would tie them down and not allow them to live the kind of life they wanted.

e. A few of those who were married ended in divorce ad separation because they were not able to give time and attention to their spouses.

f. Their lifestyle and nature of work usually attract adulterous relationships. This further complicates the whole equation.

g. They are not able to submit to any authority figure for spiritual accountability purposes.

5. Marriage succeeds as long as there is money.

It does not work that way. Marriage requires both parties to work at it, loving themselves genuinely, understanding and speaking their love languages, spending quality time, and giving attention to the marriage.

I pray that God will give us more wisdom on this topic as we all work towards a successful marriage.

I pray for all going through one challenge or more in their relationships or marriages, I ask for peace on every storm and pray specially for God’s intervention in Jesus name!

CONFESSION FOR THE DAY
I have the wisdom of God. I am delivered from the wrong relationship.

PRAYER FOR THE DAY
Lord, help me to discard every wrong notion about marriage in my mind.

THOUGHT FOR THE DAY
But from the beginning of the creation God made them male and female
(Mark 10:6 KJV)

ACTION PLAN FOR THE DAY
Decide to live by God’s principles.

BIBLE READING FOR THE Day
Gen 2
