I will be your God

Hebrews 8:10 …and I will be their God, and they shall be My people. When God says, “I will be your God,” that is a declaration that He will work miracles in your life. So if it is a miracle you need, it is a miracle you will get! If there is a huge sea blocking the way to your blessing and God says, “I will be your God,” it means that He will open the sea for you so that you can receive your blessing. If you are poor and God says, “I will be your God,” it means …

Let HIM Love you more

1 John 4:10 In this is love, not that we loved God, but that He loved us and sent His Son to be the propitiation for our sins. “You have to love God more! You must have more passion for God!” You have probably heard this type of preaching and may have even tried your best to love God, only to fail miserably. But what is the true definition of love? Let the Bible define it for us: “This is love, not that we loved God, but that He loved us.” Yes, it is not about our love for Him, but His love for …

Christ has Redeemed us from every sickness

Galatians 3:13 Christ has redeemed us from the curse of the law, having become a curse for us (for it is written, “Cursed is everyone who hangs on a tree”), The One who cleansed lepers, opened blind eyes and made the lame to walk took your sins, sicknesses and every curse when He hung on Calvary’s tree. The curses that were meant for you because of your sins fell on Him instead. He was cursed in your place to redeem you from every curse that comes as a result of breaking God’s laws. What are these curses? They are listed …

God’s Super abounding Grace is for you

And God is able to make all grace abound toward you, that you, always having all sufficiency in all things, may have an abundance for every good work. If you were in the same synagogue as the man with the withered hand (see Luke 6:6–11), how would you see him and what do you think you would say to him? Jesus was preaching in that synagogue when He saw the man with the withered hand. But He also saw superabounding grace around that hand for healing and wholeness. He sees differently from us. He sees the invisible. He sees that …

You are Complete in Christ

Colossians 2:10 and you are complete in Him, who is the head of all principality and power. When you look at yourself, what do you see? Do you see someone who is imperfect and lacking in many areas, or someone who is whole and complete in Christ? There are believers who see themselves as incomplete. This is because they are conscious of their lack and imperfections. They say, “There are so many things imperfect about me! How can I be complete if there are so many things I am lacking in?” They see their weaknesses, condemn themselves and feel inferior …

You have the Victory in Jesus name

Romans 8:37 Yet in all these things we are more than conquerors through Him who loved us. If God’s Word says that we are more than conquerors through Christ, then we are. We are not going to become, we already are. We may be experiencing some failures or setbacks in life right now, but only good will come out of our situations because God says that “in all these things we are more than conquerors.” We have the victory! You see, God has placed us in Christ, whom He has exalted to the highest place in the universe. We are not trying …

Live the ‘Abundant Life’

Romans 5:17 For if by the one man’s offense death reigned through the one, much more those who receive abundance of grace and of the gift of righteousness will reign in life through the One, Jesus Christ… When God created man, He did not intend for man to grow old, become weak and powerless, suffer diseases and die—first the physical death, then the second or eternal death. God never meant for man to go through all these and for death to reign. But because of one man’s offense—that man being Adam—death reigns. The ultimate death is the second or eternal …

The Antidote to Fear

1 John 4:18 There is no fear in love; but perfect love casts out fear… Experts tell us that babies have two natural fears: the fear of falling and the fear of loud noises. A study on fear was conducted on 500 adults of varying ages, backgrounds and lifestyles. The results showed that they shared some 7,000 different fears. This means that they must have learnt 6,998 fears since they were born. That is a lot of fears! Actually, our bodies are designed for faith. Fear was foreign to man until Adam sinned against God. For the first time, Adam …

God is not on a Sin hunt

1 Thessalonians 5:9 For God did not appoint us to wrath, but to obtain salvation through our Lord Jesus Christ, When you think of Sodom and Gomorrah, what comes to your mind? God’s wrath and fiery judgment? The truth is that God was not all out to judge the people of Sodom and Gomorrah. He was not on a sin hunt. He was, in fact, on a righteousness hunt! This is evident because if God was on a sin hunt, He would not have allowed anyone to stop Him. But we know that He let Abraham in on what He …

The Battle is the Lord’s

2 Chronicles 20:15 …Do not be afraid nor dismayed because of this great multitude, for the battle is not yours, but God’s. When faced with a problem or challenge, we tend to ask ourselves, “What am I going to do?” And well-meaning family members and friends will come along and ask, “What are you going to do?” Jehoshaphat faced a multitude of enemies. But instead of focusing on what he would do, he prayed, “O our God, will You not judge them? For we have no power against this great multitude that is coming against us; nor do we know what to do, but …

Everything is beautifully timed by God

Ecclesiastes 3:11 He has made everything beautiful in its time… Nothing happens to you by accident when you have God in your life. Even a “chance” meeting with someone is part of His plan to set in motion His blessings in your life. Such was the divinely arranged meeting of the Shunammite woman and Prophet Elisha. It led to the prophet pronouncing over her the blessing of a miracle child even though she was barren and her husband was old (see 2 Kings 4:8–17). A few years later, it was this friendship with the man of God, which saw her …

Feed on God’s Word daily

Matthew 4:4 But He answered and said, “It is written, ‘Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceeds from the mouth of God.’” The Bible tells us that God breathed into man and he became a living being (see Genesis 2:7). It also tells us that all Scripture is God-breathed (see 2 Timothy 3:16, NIV). This means that when you read the Bible or listen to God’s Word preached, you are imbibing the very breath of God which gives you life. That is why there may have been times you walked into church feeling tired …

Receive the Good News as you hear it

  Romans 1:16 For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ, for it is the power of God to salvation for everyone who believes… If you have been to motivational seminars, you would probably have heard the speakers say, “If you follow these five steps, then you will come to a place of financial increase.” They would probably have told you also that if you don’t succeed, it is because you did not follow the steps correctly or diligently. Thank God that the gospel or good news does not work like that! The minute you hear or read …

You are Perfect in God’s sight

Hebrews 10:12, 14, KJV But this man, after He had offered one sacrifice for sins forever, sat down on the right hand of God…For by one offering He hath perfected forever them that are sanctified. God sees you with no flaw, spot or imperfection, so honor His Word and the finished work of His Son by saying, “Amen!” Don’t doubt your perfection in Christ. To see yourself as being far from perfect is not modesty, but a failure to understand the perfect sacrifice that Jesus has made for you. The Bible tells us, “For by one offering He hath perfected forever them …

Convince Yourself, Not God

Mark 5:28 For she said, “If only I may touch His clothes, I shall be made well.” With a crowd thronging Him, Jesus was touched by a lot of people that day (see Mark 5:31), but only the touch of one woman drew a response from Him. And her touch sparked off instant healing in her body, releasing her from a sickness that had plagued her for 12 years. Do you want to know how to touch God and receive the miracle you need? When the woman heard that Jesus was coming by her village, she said to herself, “If …

We are to Rest in Jesus our True Ark

  Hebrews 4:10–11 …he who has entered His rest has himself also ceased from his works as God did from His. Let us therefore be diligent to enter that rest… A baby learns to sit first before he starts to stand and walk. The Christian life also begins with sitting. God “raised us up together, and made us sit together in the heavenly places in Christ Jesus” (Ephesians 2:6). How well we walk after that depends on how well we sit and rest in the finished work of Christ. The promised land was a land of rest where God promised …

Life above the Sun

John 10:10 …I have come that they may have life, and that they may have it more abundantly. When you are not enjoying abundant life, you will feel as if life is full of toil. In your heart, life is meaningless and empty. You feel like someone “grasping for the wind” (Ecclesiastes 2:11). It seems as if nothing you do adds up to much. The Bible calls this life “under the sun” (Ecclesiastes 2:11). Someone who lives life under the sun may or may not know God, but God is either forgotten or not the center of things in his …

Everything that comes forth from you shall be blessed

Deuteronomy 28:4 Blessed shall be the fruit of your body… The Bible records that Jesus’ spit healed a blind man (see Mark 8:23–25), Peter’s shadow healed the sick (see Acts 5:15), and handkerchiefs and aprons from Paul’s body drove out evil spirits and diseases (see Acts 19:11–12). This tells us that what comes forth from our bodies can be so blessed that it brings about blessings and miracles to others. Indeed, God said, “Blessed shall be the fruit of your body…” He was not just referring to your children, or He would have simply said, “Blessed shall be your children.” …

The Lord is my Refuge

Psalm 91:1–2 He who dwells in the secret place of the Most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty. I will say of the Lord, “He is my refuge and my fortress; my God, in Him I will trust.” Every day, we are bombarded with news of conflicts, natural disasters, diseases and new strains of drug-resistant viruses. We also hear of people losing their loved ones in freak accidents. And we ask ourselves, “Is there a place where I can take refuge from a world gone mad?” Yes, there is! God foresaw all these things and He has …

Don’t give up at Thirtyfold

Mark 4:8 “But other seed fell on good ground and yielded a crop that sprang up, increased and produced: some thirtyfold, some sixty, and some a hundred.” Perhaps you have marveled at God’s instantaneous healing miracles. Perhaps you believed that He would do the same for you. But now, when you see your own healing taking so long to manifest, you are tempted to give up. My friend, when the manifestation does not come instantaneously, we are not to be discouraged because Jesus let us in on a secret when He shared the parable of the sower (see Mark 4:3–20). …
