*TOPIC: FAITH – A KEY TO GLORY .*
*SCRIPTURE* : Jesus said unto her, Said I not unto thee, that, if thou wouldest believe, thou shouldest see the glory of God? JOHN 11:40
*THOUGHT FOR THE DAY* : Life becomes glorious when faith is alive.
It has been established that the presence of faith commands the presence of profit in the life of a child of God. When faith is at work, there are evidences to show for it.
Now, one profit of faith is glory, *faith is key to the glory* . When you have faith in God, you experience a realm of His Glory. The faith realm is the glory realm. Everyone who occupies the realm of faith must also occupy the realm of glory.
Faith moves people to the realm of God, and the realm that God occupies is the realm of all possibilities. That means faith provokes access to the realm of all possibilities.
Mark 10:27 says:
And Jesus looking upon them saith, With men it is impossible, but not with God: for with God all things are possible. Also, in Mark 9:23, the Bible says, Jesus said unto him, if thou canst believe, all things are possible to him that believeth.
Look at this: with God, all things are possible (Mark 10:27); and with faith, all things are possible (Mark 9:23).
This means, faith moves a person to the realm where God operates.
In Mathematics, if A = B and B = C, it means that A = C. Faith moves God and God moves things.
So, the faith realm is the glory realm and the God realm is the glory realm. Faith moves a child of God to the realm of glory. Life becomes glorious when faith is alive. Events of your life will happen at the speed of the glory when you operate in faith.
*REMEMBER THIS* : Life becomes glorious when faith is alive.
*1. Make up your mind to dwell in the Glory.*
*2. Activate your faith to experience the Glory.*
*PRAYER* : Lord, I ask that You manifest Your Glory in my life. Increase my faith in You so I can experience more of Your Glory, Lord, in Jesus’ Name.

*DAILY READING: Nehemiah 9-11.*
*QUOTE* : Faith, which is a product of light, is a shield for man. Culled from “15 STRATEGIES FOR SURVIVAL” by Dr. Paul Enenche.
*AMAZING FACT* : By geographical landmass, Israel is very small. You can run through it from west to east in two hours and from top to bottom in nine days. But it is an unconquerable nation; no nation on earth can destroy Israel because it was founded on solid covenant with God.
*PROPHETIC DECLARATION/WORD* : May you explode into the glorious realm of all possibilities in this season in Jesus’ Name.
*Good Morning ☘️🌼*

THEME: BEWARE OF HYPOCRITES
For as he thinketh in his heart, so is he: Eat and drink, saith he to thee; but his heart is not with thee. Proverbs 23:7
READ: Luke 7:36-40
36 And one of the Pharisees desired him that he would eat with him. And he went into the Pharisee’s house, and sat down to meat.
37 And, behold, a woman in the city, which was a sinner, when she knew that Jesus sat at meat in the Pharisee’s house, brought an alabaster box of ointment,
38 And stood at his feet behind him weeping, and began to wash his feet with tears, and did wipe them with the hairs of her head, and kissed his feet, and anointed them with the ointment.
39 Now when the Pharisee which had bidden him saw it, he spake within himself, saying, This man, if he were a prophet, would have known who and what manner of woman this is that toucheth him: for she is a sinner.
40 And Jesus answering said unto him, Simon, I have somewhat to say unto thee. And he saith, Master, say on.
In the Bible reading for today, a Pharisee invited Jesus to his house to eat. It would be correct to conclude that this Pharisee was a firm believer in Jesus as the true Son of God, but that was not true. Of all the people in the house that day, it was this Pharisee – the host, who thought in his heart that Jesus was not a true prophet when the woman with the alabaster box washed His feet. This shows that the Pharisee was not really a firm believer in Jesus in the first place, yet he acted like one. To make matters worse, after the Pharisee had concluded in his heart that Jesus was not really sent of God, Jesus called him and he responded, “Master”. What a hypocrite! On the outside, he called Jesus Master, but on the inside, he said, “This man is not a man of God”.
I am certain that you have one or two people like this Pharisee around you. I pray that the Almighty God will reveal them to you, in Jesus’ name. Thank God Jesus was very discerning. He knew straightaway what the Pharisee was thinking. Many people have become victims of their enemies because they thought they were their friends. May that not be your portion, in Jesus’ name. Be careful of the people who call themselves your friends. It doesn’t matter how nice they seem to you, not every victory is celebrated publicly, because the celebration could fuel their hatred for you even more and lead to them planning an attack against you. If you don’t believe me, ask Joseph, Joseph was always quick to tell his brothers his great dreams. He thought that since they were his brothers, then they would be happy for him, but he was wrong.
Yes, it is important that you share testimonies about God’s goodness to you but you must seek divine wisdom to know what to share and when to share it as not everyone will be happy for you. You must also always keep certain secrets to yourself, especially when other people’s knowledge of those secrets can greatly affect your life and destiny.
Samson thought Delilah was his friend. She seemed to genuinely be in love with him, and he felt relaxed around her. He told her the secret of his power and this led to his destruction as she revealed it to his enemies (Judges 16:18-21). Some of the people who profess great love for you may actually be friends with your enemies; don’t share your secrets with them!
Not everyone who calls you friend is really your friend.
