JUNE 30; FAITH TO DO EXPLOITS!

Hebrews 11;1-2 ‘Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen. For by it the elders obtained a good report.’

DAILY READING; 1 Thessalonians 5; Isaiah 23-24; Psalm 116

Pastor John Hagee is a globally known Televangelist. He is the founder and senior pastor of Cornerstone Church, in San Antonio, Texas.
In the beginning years of his ministry, he was unknown and it seemed he could not make any headway in life. But he nursed
great visions within him, despite the fact that he lacked the resources and wherewithal for their accomplishments.

One day, while attending a convention, he felt a strong compulsion to write down these visions and trust God for their fulfilment. He then wrote down in the back cover of his Bible these visions he had for his ministry. He wrote that one day he would have a television ministry that would reach the nations of the world. This vision became fulfilled by 2015, as more than a hundred nations began hooking up to watch live services and other programs of Cornerstone church in San Antonio, Texas.
Pastor Hagee also wrote on the back cover of his Bible that Cornerstone Church would have a conference center with a campground where people would receive training, teachings, and deliverance. That vision also has become a reality today and is located in Tarpley, Texas.

Pastor Hagee wrote down that the ministry would build a school which would be a place to raise up godly children with a Christ-centered education. That vision became a reality in 1993 as
Cornerstone Christian Schools.

Pastor Hagee wrote each of these dreams down just as Habakkuk 2 instructed to write down the vision and make it plain. He laid these dreams before the Lord and despite great challenges and battles he had to fight, God has faithfully fulfilled every single one of those visions.

Today, on his office wall hangs the back cover of the Bible where he had first written down his vision while in a Conference in the early 90s. It is a constant reminder to him that faith indeed works and God always does what He says He will do.

Due to the challenges we often face, we may sometimes wonder if our dreams and visions would ever come to pass.
But we have to understand that the journey of destiny is a walk of faith.
Though you may not have enough resources or qualification, when you desire to please God, and walk in obedience, He will work in and through you to accomplish His will on earth.
Despite what may look like obstacles and inadequacies, as you continue to trust God, He can accomplish great things through you..

Our vision comes to pass according to the level of our faith. The height of every vision is a function of the depth of faith that is at work. Faith is what eventually gives substance to the ideas in our hearts that may initially appear impossible and unattainable.

Hebrews 11;1 ‘Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.’

Faith is a spiritual perspective that makes your vision real despite the odds against you. It makes the future so bright and so possible to you, that you despise current challenges. It is a deep inner confidence that makes you see the invisible and call those things that be not as though they were.

Faith moves us to act. It always leaves us with a responsibility, because faith without works is dead. When we are moved to act on what God commands, He becomes committed to perform.

To step into the fullness of our destiny, and see our dreams and visions come to pass, faith is indeed a great neccessity.
Meditating on Scriptures paints the pictures of possibilities that propells us forward despite obstacles and setbacks. When our natural reasoning is telling
us, “It’s never going to work out” knowledge of God’s faithfulness from His Word emboldens us to keep pressing forward.

No matter the hindrances and limitations, God can take us beyond our wildest dreams. It is not about our strength, it is about God who works in us both to will and to do of His good pleasure.
Certainly, God is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all we could ever ask, think or imagine.

Therefore, on this last day of June, let us remain full of hope and expectant about what God wants to do in our lives.
And as we keep praising Him and keep walking in faith and obedience, it is only a matter of time before we see our visions come to pass and arrive at that glorious place God has destined for us.

PRAYER: Lord, please help me to stop focusing on limitations, challenges or obstacles. Certainly, through Christ I can do all things and attain the glorious heights You destined for me in Jesus Name.

[6/30, 3:58 PM] Pst Emmanuel.O. Oshevire: *ABOVE ONLY DEVOTIONAL*

*BY: ARCHBISHOP M. E. BENSON IDAHOSA*

*THURSDAY JUNE 30TH, 2022.*

*YOU ARE NO LONGER A SLAVE TO FEAR*

*Daniel 3:16-18, 2Timothy 1:7 (NKJV, TPT) Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego, answered …, O Nebuchadnezzar, we are not careful to answer thee in this matter. .., our God whom we serve is able to deliver us from the burning fiery furnace, and he will deliver us out of thine hand, O king. But if not, … we will not serve thy gods, nor worship the golden image…thou hast set up. *For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind. *For God will never give you the spirit of fear, but the Holy Spirit who gives you mighty power, love, and self-control.*

The bondages and limitations in the lives of many people is basically a result of the fear(s) they have in their hearts; the greatest of which is the fear of death. But I am glad to tell you child of God, that Hebrews 2:14-15 (NIV) declares, “Since the children have flesh and blood, he too shared in their humanity so that by his death he might break the power of him who holds the power of death—that is, the devil— and free those who all their lives were held in slavery by their fear of death.” Jesus has set you free from every fear and every bondage or limitation in your life. In Psalm 34:4, David said, “I sought the LORD, and he heard me, and delivered me from all my fears.” In Christ, God has delivered from all your fears.

Not being afraid is a major key by which we overcome the devil and many temptations and challenges in our lives. Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego did not allow the fear of King Nebuchadnezzar’s fiery furnace to make them doubt God or compromise their faith. Revelation 12:11 (NLT) says, “And they have defeated him by the blood of the Lamb and by their testimony. And they did not love their lives so much that they were afraid to die.”

You are victorious child of God. You are no longer a slave to fear and you are no longer a slave or in bondage to anything. You are free indeed because Jesus has made you free, (John 8:36). Celebrate your freedom and boldly walk in it. You have a new spirit in you. It is the Spirit of Christ. In the New International Version, our last text above says, “…the Spirit God gave us does not make us timid, but gives us power, love and self-discipline.”

*Faith Declaration:*
There is no fear or limitation in my life. Jesus has set me free! Jesus has given me His Spirit of power, love and boldness!

*BIBLE IN ONE YEAR READING PLAN*
