You are Safe in God

Psalms 16:1 (NLT), Proverbs 18:10, Acts 16:31, Psa. 91:1-3 (GNB)
Keep me safe, O God, for I have come to you for refuge. *The name of the LORD is a strong tower: the righteous runneth into it, and is safe. *Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and thou shalt be saved and thy house. *Whoever goes to the LORD for safety, whoever remains under the protection of the Almighty, can say to him, You are my defender and protector. You are my God; in you I trust.” He will keep you safe …

Part of the meaning of the word ‘salvation’ in Romans 1:16, is ‘rescue’ or ‘safety.’ By virtue of our faith in Jesus, we have been rescued and saved by God and now our lives are safe, We have been delivered from the power of darkness and we have been translated into the kingdom of God’s dear Son, Col.1:13. We become righteous by believing in Jesus and we remain safe in God’s tower of protection, Pro.18:10. God is now our location. We now live inside God (Col.3:3) and we abide under His shadow, Psa. 91:1 .

We are also safe physically. God’s angels are watching over you (Psa. 91:10-12. & Psa. 34:7) and God Himself is watching over you. He that keeps you does not sleep nor slumber, Psa. 121:4. The Bible assures us except the Lord watches over a city, they that watch do so in vain, Psa. 127:1b.

Your future is also safe, both now and for eternity. “God cannot tell lies! And so his promises and vows are two things that can never be changed. We have run to God for safety. Now his promises should greatly encourage us to take hold of the hope that is right in front of us,” Heb.6:18 (CEV). As long as you keep your faith in Jesus, He wi|| continue to keep you safe and saved. The Bible says “…He is able also to save to the uttermost (completely, perfectly, finally, and for all time and eternity) those who come to God through Him, since He is always living to make petition to God and intercede with Him and intervene for them,” Heb. 7:25 (AMP).

Prayer Focus:
Thank God for saving you and for His promises to keep you saved and safe. Tell Him your faith is in Christ alone.
[6:24 AM, 6/6/2019] 919063: A prayer for your children

Thursday 6th June 2019

‘Children are a heritage from the Lord.’ Psalm 127:3 NKJV

When someone loves you enough to leave you an inheritance, you should treasure it and treat it in a way that honours them.

The Bible says that your children are a ‘heritage’ from the Lord. So here’s a prayer for them: ‘Lord, I cannot begin to tell you how blessed and grateful I am for my children. I recognise each of them as a beautiful gift from you. You have given them to me to love and care for, to enjoy and celebrate, to delight in and raise so that they may come to know you as the greatest heritage of all. Thank you that no one, not even me, can ever be as good to them as you are. Because you have given me the privilege and responsibility of bringing them to you, teach me the importance of lifting them up before you each day in prayer. Keep them in the centre of your love and designed purpose. Bless them with the knowledge of who you are. Help them to put their trust in you and stay on the path of life you have for them. Enable them to recognise the gifts and the calling that you have put in them, and to follow your leading as you develop them and use them for your glory. Make your face shine upon them, your grace be with them, and your love abound in them. In Jesus’ name I pray. Amen.’

Are your children serving the Lord? If not, stand on this Bible promise: ‘”There is hope in your future,” says the Lord, “that your children shall come back to their own border [the principles they were taught]”‘ (Jeremiah 31:17 NKJV).

THEME: BED UNDEFILED.  

MEMORISE
Marriage is honourable in all, and the bed undefiled: but whoremongers and adulterers God will judge.
Hebrews 13:4

Bible Reading: Proverbs 5:15-21
15 Drink waters out of thine own cistern, and running waters out of thine own well.

16 Let thy fountains be dispersed abroad, and rivers of waters in the streets.

17 Let them be only thine own, and not strangers’ with thee.

18 Let thy fountain be blessed: and rejoice with the wife of thy youth.

19 Let her be as the loving hind and pleasant roe; let her breasts satisfy thee at all times; and be thou ravished always with her love.

20 And why wilt thou, my son, be ravished with a strange woman, and embrace the bosom of a stranger?

21 For the ways of man are before the eyes of the LORD, and he pondereth all his goings.

MESSAGE
Whichever way you look at it, marriage is honorable, and this is why those who have rebelled against God in their sexual orientation want to cloak their dishonorable lifestyle with the honor God has bestowed on marriage. Despite what the world is trying to turn it into, the institution of marriage remains God’s perfect arrangement to meet the needs of companionship between a man and a woman who are adults. If discovering and choosing to love a person is beautiful in courtship is exciting, solemnizing a union in a wedding ceremony is divine. After a couple is joined together in holy matrimony and God’s blessings are pronounced on them, they become partners in a sacred institution. The sanctity of marriage is not a figment of human imagination. God indeed designed marriage to be holy, and so it should be approached with great respect and due veneration. This is why today’s memory verse describes marriage as honorable and advise against defiling it, with a strong warning that God’s judgement will fall on anyone who indulges in sexual immorality in marriage.

Another reason why God created the institution of marriage is the need to satisfy sexual desire within an environment of accountability and responsibility. God wants married couples to find sexual satisfaction in marriage (1 Corinthians 7:2). In His infinite wisdom, He provided marital sex as a wise alternative to infidelity and sexual disorder. Today’s bible reading says you should drink water out of your own cistern, meaning that sexual thirst should only be satisfied within the privacy of marriage. Furthermore, sexual body and sexual acts are not public property to be shared with strangers (Proverbs 5:16-17). “Strangers” in this context refers to anyone who has not “Known” you through marriage (Genesis 4:1). Only within marriage did God bless uninhibited sexual joys (Proverbs 5:18-19). Take note that God deliberately used the words “at all times” and “always” in Proverbs 5:19, to remove limits from a married couple’s sexual enjoyment of each other (1 Corinthians 7:3-5). Brethren, please abstain from sex outside marriage, for God has promised to judge all fornicators and adulterers (Hebrews 13:4). Your momentary sinful pleasure is liable for eternal judgment, so ask yourself, is it really worth it (Proverbs 5:20)? He who created all things in heaven and earth for His own pleasure has every right to guide human affairs in conformity with His supreme purpose. Think on these things, and may God engrave them on the tablet of your heart in Jesus’ Name.

PRAYER POINT:
Father, please uphold every marriage and let Your power reign in every home, in Jesus’ Name

TOPIC: KEY TO WALKING IN TRIUMPH

SCRIPTURE: For whatsoever is born of God overcometh the world: and this is the victory that overcometh the world,”even our faith. 1 John 5″:4.

THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: Faith has the capacity to make a victor out of a victim,”a captain out of a captive, and a conqueror out of the conquered.

Previously, we saw that faith is profitable in the life of the child of God. We have so far seen different dimensions of the profitability of faith. Today, we shall see yet another dimension of the profitability of faith, and that is WALKING IN TRIUMPH. Faith is key to walking in triumph.  

Faith is a guarantee of victory any day, anytime and anywhere, both in the physical and spiritual realms. Faith guarantees victory in any realm of life. Faith has the capacity to make a victor out of a victim, a captain out of a captive, and a conqueror out of the conquered. 

Hear what Apostle Paul says concerning faith in Hebrews 11″:32-34:

And what shall I more say? for the time would fail me to tell of Gedeon,”and of Barak, and of Samson, and of Jephthae; of David also, and Samuel, and of the prophets”: Who through faith subdued kingdoms,”wrought righteousness, obtained promises, stopped the mouths of lions, quenched the violence of fire, escaped the edge of the sword, out of weakness were made strong, waxed valiant in fight, turned to flight the armies of the aliens. 

By faith, you subdue kingdoms, humiliate dangers, escape calamities, turnaround battles and put the enemy on the run. Faith gives you the capacity to deal with the devil that has kept you under bondage. Faith is the reason why you will not lose another battle of life again.

Beloved, it doesn’t matter if you have been a victim of circumstances in life, I decree that you are rising today as a victor, conqueror and champion over the forces of the enemy. You shall not lose another battle of life again in Jesus’ Name. 

You need faith to triumph in life.

Remember this”: Faith has the capacity to make a victor out of a victim,”a captain out of a captive, and a conqueror out of the conquered.

ASSIGNMENTS”:

1. Refuse to live in the realm of defeat.

2. Make up your mind to live as a victor,”captain and conqueror by activating your faith in God.

PRAYER”: O Lord,”I reject the lifestyle of defeat. I walk in triumph by exercising faith, Lord, in Jesus’ Name.

FOR FURTHER UNDERSTANDING, GET THIS MESSAGE”: THE PROFITABILITY OF FAITH.

DAILY READING: 1 Kings 1:1-53,”Acts 4″:1-37,”Psalm 124″:1-8,”Proverbs 16″:24.

AMAZING FACT: Armenia became the first nation to adopt Christianity as a state religion in the year 301.

QUOTE: One light can handle your night. One revelation can handle your affliction. The quality of your insight (in the Word) assists your faith. Culled from  15 KINGDOM STRATEGIES FOR SURVIVAL by Dr Paul Enenche.

PROPHETIC DECLARATION/WORD: The last time you lost a battle shall be the last time forever, in Jesus’ Name.
