*LET THE WORD LEAD YOU*
2 Timothy 3:16-17 (KJV)
 *All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness:*
 *That the man of God may be perfect, throughly furnished unto all good works.*
The word of God is the manual of life. As any product without a manufacturer’s manual might be misused and damaged, so it is with human life. God is our Creator (manufacturer) and the Bible is our life manual. Without it, No one can navigate properly. The most authentic and reliable form of direction is the word of God. Whatever we do in life must be according to the word of God. It is a perfect life manual.
The Bible contains information, revelation and instruction on every issue of life. The world we dwell in is full of so many cruelty and darkness and we need the light of God, which is His word to navigate our ways through darkness.
Psalms 119:9 (MSG) *How can a young person live a clean life? By carefully reading the map of your Word.*
Psalm 119:105 (KJV)
*Thy word is a lamp unto my feet, and a light unto my path.*
Psalm 132:17 (KJV)
*There will I make the horn of David to bud: I have ordained a lamp for mine anointed.*
The only solution to darkness is light. When you are armed with the relevant word of God on any specific area, you become a master in that area because His word is the carrier of His wisdom. The more of the Word of God you have, the more wisdom you will manifest. When you have the Word concerning marriage, your marriage must be a model and blissful union. The Word of God is the light of our lives.
John 8:12 (KJV)
*Then spake Jesus again unto them, saying, I am the light of the world: he that followeth me shall not walk in darkness, but shall have the light of life.*
We all need light of the word of God to access our glorious destinies in Christ and without it stumbling is inevitable. There are so many instructions for business, politics, literature and history in the word of God than you can find in any other book. Let the Word lead you by acting on it and doing all it asks you to do. God designed every instruction in His word to direct your steps in life and to keep you out of danger and errors.
> Thank you my Father for the gift of life and a new day.
> Thank you my Father for your loving-kindness and mercies upon me.
> Thank you for the blessing of your word I have received this morning.
> Thank you my Father for the gift of a lovely family that you gave me.
1. Job 23:12 (KJV)
*Neither have I gone back from the commandment of his lips; I have esteemed the words of his mouth more than my necessary food.*
O Lord my Father, help me to strongly desire your word every day of my life in Jesus mighty name!
2. Jeremiah 15:16 (KJV)
*Thy words were found, and I did eat them; and thy word was unto me the joy and rejoicing of mine heart…*
O Lord my God, cause me to be a lover of your word more than my necessary food in Jesus mighty name!
3. Psalms 141:4 (NLT) *Don’t let me lust for evil things; don’t let me participate in acts of wickedness. Don’t let me share in the delicacies of those who do evil.*
O Lord my Father, keep my heart, do not let me be attracted to evil things, deeds and ways in Jesus mighty name!
4. Psalm 43:3 (KJV)
*O send out thy light and thy truth: let them lead me; let them bring me unto thy holy hill, and to thy tabernacles.*
O Lord my Father, send forth your light, let it lead me into greatness in Jesus mighty name!
5. Job 32:8 (KJV)
*But there is a spirit in man: and the inspiration of the Almighty giveth them understanding.*
i. O Lord my God, drop divine ideas for wealth transfer into my spirit in Jesus mighty name!
ii. O Lord my God, give me divine ideas for exploits in life in Jesus mighty name!
6. 1 Chronicles 12:32 (KJV)
*And of the children of Issachar, which were men that had understanding of the times, to know what Israel ought to do; the heads of them were two hundred; and all their brethren were at their commandment.*
i. O Lord my God, help me to understand my time and season in your divine calendar in Jesus mighty name!
ii. O lord my God help me to see through your eyes in Jesus mighty name!
7. Proverbs 4:18 (KJV)
*But the path of the just is as the shining light, that shineth more and more unto the perfect day.*
O Lord my God, let my favour doors be turned to favour gates for greater manifestation of your beauty and glory in the mighty name of Jesus!
8. Job 9:10 (KJV)
*Which doeth great things past finding out; yea, and wonders without number.*
O Lord my God, let my life and family be an expression of your wonders in Jesus mighty name!
9. 2 Samuel 3:1 (KJV)
*Now there was long war between the house of Saul and the house of David: but David waxed stronger and stronger, and the house of Saul waxed weaker and weaker.*
O Lord my Father, continue to weaken the strength of all opposition to my progress in the mighty name of Jesus!
10. Ezekiel 30:15 (AMP) *And I will pour My wrath upon Pelusium, the stronghold of Egypt, and I will cut off the tumult, the prosperity and the population of No or Thebes.*
O Lord my Father, arise and destroy the strength of all that are opposing my progress and promotion in Jesus mighty name!
11. Psalm 140:7 (KJV)
*O God the Lord, the strength of my salvation, thou hast covered my head in the day of battle.*
i. O Lord my God, cover my head in the day of battle in Jesus mighty name!
ii. O Lord my God, do not allow my enemy to access my strength in Jesus mighty name!
iii. I declare goodness and mercies shall locate me this week in Jesus mighty name!

Thank you Father for working exceedingly and abundantly above all that I ask or think.
Receive my thanks and praise in the mighty name of Jesus!
See you tomorrow,

*PILLOW IN THE STORM 2*
*Text: “And there arose a great STORM of wind…and he (Jesus) was in the hinder part of the ship, asleep on a PILLOW.” Mark 4:37-38*
Jesus was in a storm but the storm was not inside him. He was fast asleep on a PILLOW. He wasn’t sleeping out of carelessness. He was sleeping out of the inner peace that he was safe. He was so sure that the word he spoke about going to the other side will come to pass. Jesus was completely at rest. *The PILLOW was a symbol of rest and peace.* Jesus was so much at rest that his restful state was a concern to his disciples.
The normal response to the storm was what the disciples did; they were afraid. Fear is a position of loss. It’s an attitude that gets a man defeated.
Jesus demonstrated for us that it’s possible to have rest in the midst of the storms of life. He also demonstrated for us what it takes to overcome in the midst of the storms of life. If there is no peace and victory on the inside we cannot command victory on the outside. Before the storm came Jesus had given a word “….Let us pass unto the other side…” That word had gone forth and it must come to pass. That must have been the basis of the peace that Jesus had. We actually draw peace from the word that God had spoken over our lives ahead of the storm or in the midst of the storm. That God had spoken over your life is never a guarantee that there won’t be a storm; but it’s important we are able to hold on to what God had spoken over us.
The presence of the storm is never an indication that God is absent. In many cases the presence of God actually attracted the storm just to bring forth the glory of God in your life. Jesus heard about the sickness of Lazarus and he still died; but all was for the glory of God. In the midst of whatever storm you face the first thing you must ensure is that you have the presence of God.
Lord I declare that you are God in this situation.

THEME: FOR YOUR GOOD.
And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose. Romans 8:28
READ: Genesis 50:19-22
19 And Joseph said unto them, Fear not: for am I in the place of God?
20 But as for you, ye thought evil against me; but God meant it unto good, to bring to pass, as it is this day, to save much people alive.
21 Now therefore fear ye not: I will nourish you, and your little ones. And he comforted them, and spake kindly unto them.
22 And Joseph dwelt in Egypt, he, and his father’s house: and Joseph lived an hundred and ten years.
If we could see things the way God does, our lives would be far better. Sometimes, criticism comes because God wants to make you more popular and influential. Some people may even harm you because God wants to promote you. If you cannot see things from God’s point of view, you may miss the coming blessing. As long as you remain in love with God, you can rest assured that all things are working together for your good. Ephesians 1:3-6 says the purpose of God for your life had been settled before the foundations of the world. All the things you have gone through and people you have met in your life- whether good or bad, are part of the purpose of God for you.
I find the story of Joseph (Genesis 37-46) very instructive. He was one person who saw things from God’s point of view. His father loved him greatly and gave him a coat of many colors- prophetic of where he was going. His brothers became jealous of him because of his dreams of greatness and they sold him into slavery. If his brothers had accepted him, they would not have sold him into slavery, he would not have arrived in Egypt, and neither would he have reached the throne. If he had not gotten to the throne, his brothers would not have come to bow to him as God had shown him many years before.
Joseph saw things from God’s point of view; he knew that if he could just stay holy, everything happening to him would eventually lead him to the throne. He never let his wilderness experience take away his hope or make him sin against God. At every stage of his ordeal (as a slave in Potiphar’s house and as a prisoner), his leaders attested to the fact that God was with him.
God is working out His purpose for your life. Those who hate you and those who love you are part of the plan. Stay holy, keep trusting Him; your reward is just around the comer. Galatians 6:9 says:
“And let us not be weary in well doing: for in due season we shall reap, if we faint not.”
As long as you are still in the will of God, don’t worry; everything around you is working for your good (Romans 8:28).
BIBLE IN ONE YEAR: Matthew 3
AUTHOR: PASTOR E. A. ADEBOYE
HYMN 30: WHEN WE WALK WITH THE LORD.
1. When we walk with the Lord in the light of His Word,
What a glory He sheds on our way!
While we do His good will, He abides with us still,
And with all who will trust and obey.
Trust and obey, for there’s no other way
To be happy in Jesus, but to trust and obey.
2. Not a shadow can rise, not a cloud in the skies,
But His smile quickly drives it away;
Not a doubt or a fear, not a sigh or a tear,
Can abide while we trust and obey.
3. Not a burden we bear, not a sorrow we share,
But our toil He doth richly repay;
Not a grief or a loss, not a frown or a cross,
But is blessed if we trust and obey.
4. But we never can prove the delights of His love
Until all on the altar we lay;
For the favor He shows, for the joy He bestows,
Are for them who will trust and obey.
5. Then in fellowship sweet we will sit at His feet,
Or we’ll walk by His side in the way;
What He says we will do, where He sends we will go;
Never fear, only trust and obey.

*Topic: The Satanic Confrontation Of God’s Purpose*
SCRIPTURE: Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour. 1 Peter 5:8.
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: Knowing that destiny is very crucial, the devil fights it with passion.
Previously, we established that you were created by God for a purpose. God has a plan for your life.
In our study today, it is important to look at the confrontation of the devil against the purpose of God in our lives.
Look at this: The devil does not care about what people become in life as long as they do not become what God wants them to be. So, knowing that destiny is very crucial, the devil fights it with passion.
Now, one way satan fights God’s purpose for your life is through the enemies of purpose. It is important to note that there are deadly enemies that the devil uses to fight destiny and render people useless on earth.
Today, many great destinies roam about being rendered destitute in the world by these deadly enemies of destiny. There are many people who would have gone farther in life than their current positions if their lives had not been crippled by these enemies of destiny.
When you look through Scriptures, you would see examples of great destinies that were crippled by enemies of destiny. People like Samson, Achan, Gehazi, Judas Iscariot, and Queen Vashti were examples of those destroyed by enemies of destiny in the scripture.
Beloved, you shall never be destroyed by these enemies of destiny. Live to fulfil purpose.
Remember this🦋: Knowing that destiny is very crucial, the devil fights it with passion.
1.Identify the way(s) satan is fighting God’s purpose for your life and deal with him.
2.Refuse to follow the pathway of people who were destroyed by the enemies of destiny.
PRAYER: 🙏👸🤴O Lord, show me the ways satan is fighting Your purpose for my life. I receive the grace not to do anything outside Your purpose, Lord, in Jesus’ Name.

QUOTE: You will not leave this world without fulfilling God’s purpose and destiny in your life. Culled from “21 FOOLISH THINGS PEOPLE DO” by Dr Paul Enenche.
DAILY READING: Zechariah 9-11
AMAZING FACT: The world’s deadliest animal isn’t a shark, bear or tiger, but something far smaller – the mosquito. According to the World Health Organization, 725,000 people are killed each year from mosquito-borne diseases, such as Malaria, dengue fever and yellow fever.
PROPHETIC DECLARATION/WORD: Grace to live a fulfilling destiny be released upon you in Jesus’ Name.Share On:
