*God Will Use You to Do the Impossible*
_Ezekiel 3751-4, 7 (NIV)_
_The hand of the LORD was on me, and he brought me out by the Spirit of the LORD and set me in the middle of a valley; it was full of bones. .. I saw a great many bones on the floor of the valley, bones that were very dry. He asked me, “Son of man, can these bones live?” I said, “Sovereign LORD, you alone know.” Then he said to me, “Prophesy to these bones *So I prophesied as I was commanded. And as l was prophesying, there was a noise, a rattling sound, and the bones came together, bone to bone._
As we studied yesterday, there are situations occurring in the lives of people that are not God’s will for them. Nonetheless, they may have accepted them as the norm because they no longer believe there can be a change. Some may even feel that they deserve those negative conditions because of one thing or the other that they might have done. God is going to use you to change such situations in the lives of such people. No matter how dry their situation may be, the life of God is going to flow out of you to bring hope, restoration and solutions to their lives.
The hand of God shall be mighty upon you. You will know what to do or say and as you do or say it, the glory of God will be revealed. You shall rise up in the spirit and in the name and the authority of Christ and you shall declare the glory and the power of God into their lives. Jeremiah 1:17 (NLT) says, “Get up and prepare for action. Go out and tell them everything I tell you to say….” As Ezekiel obeyed God and spoke to those dry bones as he was commanded, the impossible began to happen. Bone come to bone, restoration began to take place and eventually, a mighty army was raised out of those dry bones.
Do not be afraid. It is not you that is transforming their lives and situations. it is God that is transforming them through you as you yield yourself to Him. God says,”l. the LORD, have called you and given you power to see that justice is done on earth. Through you, I will make a covenant with all peoples; through you I will bring light to the nations. You will open the eyes of the blind and set free those who sit in dark prisons,” Isa.42:6.
Prayer: I yield myself to You, dear Lord. Use me to bring about unimaginable transformations in the lives of people today. Begin to touch their lives now!

*Rhapsody Of Realities Daily Devotional Study*
*Theme: *Discover Jesus And Your Search Is Over.*
*Date: Saturday November 7th, 2020.*
*Author: Rev Dr Chris Oyakhilome. DSc, DD, PhD.*
_*For there is one God, and one mediator between
God and men, the man Christ Jesus (1 Timothy 2:5).*_
Man doesn’t know reality until he finds Jesus, the Son of
the living God. But who exactly is Jesus, the man of
Galilee? First, He’s the Word- incarnate. This is an amazing truth.
Think about it: Your word is the expression of who you are. It’s the expression of your views, opinions, thoughts, emotions, and ideas.
In the same way, the Word of God is the totality of God’s
thoughts, ideas, opinions, will, and emotions. John 1:14 NKJV tells
us that God’s Word was personified, and the result was the man, Jesus: _*“And the Word became flesh, and dwelt among us….”*_
His laughter was God laughing; His smiles were the smiles of
God. When He stretched out His hand, that was God stretching out
His hand. When He loved, it was God’s love manifested. Everything He did was the expression of God.
Secondly, He’s the character and essence of God. The Bible
tells us something beautiful about Him in Hebrews 1:3: _*“Who being the brightness of his glory, and the express image of his
person….”*_ He’s the perfect personification of the abstract
idealisation of God.
In the world, the term “God” doesn’t convey a person; it
conveys an idea. God doesn’t make sense to the human mind, because they can’t find or define Him. The Bible, however, presents
Jesus as God’s perfect imprint, the icon of the unseen God.
Thirdly, Jesus Christ is the glory of the Father. He’s the
outshining of the Father’s glory, the radiance of the Father.
The world doesn’t understand why we can be so passionate
about the man, Jesus. Until you know Jesus, God will only be an
idea to you. Your search, however, stops when you meet this
awesome, glorious, Lord of heaven and earth. That’s why we tell
people, “Discover Jesus!” When you discover Him, you discover
reality; you discover life.
*As Jesus is, so am I; I’m one with Him! In Him, I live, and move
and have my being. I have His righteousness, life, and nature in
me. I’m the effulgence of His glory and the express image of His
person. Therefore, I think, act, and live as His perfect
*Colossians 1:15-19* Who is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn of every creature: 16 For by him were all things created, that are in heaven, and that are in earth, visible and invisible, whether [they be] thrones, or dominions, or principalities, or powers: all things were created by him, and for him: 17 And he is before all things, and by him all things consist. 18 And he is the head of the body, the church: who is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead; that in all [things] he might have the preeminence. 19 For it pleased [the Father] that in him should all fulness dwell;.
*Hebrews 1:1-4* God, who at sundry times and in divers manners spake in time past unto the fathers by the prophets, 2 Hath in these last days spoken unto us by [his] Son, whom he hath appointed heir of all things, by whom also he made the worlds; 3 Who being the brightness of [his] glory, and the express image of his person, and upholding all things by the word of his power, when he had by himself purged our sins, sat down on the right hand of the Majesty on high; 4 Being made so much better than the angels, as he hath by inheritance obtained a more excellent name than they.

*EMPTY OF UNDERSTANDING*
*Text: “And behold among the simple ones, I discerned among the youths, a young man void of understanding.” Prov 7:7*
The phrase “void of understanding” occurs several times in the book of proverbs. This is to show us how important this is. Void means empty. This is actually a state in which an individual lack understanding.
Our anchor scripture is a description of a young man who went on to have an affair with a married woman. The scripture categorically explained to us that the young man never knew that he was like an ox going for a slaughter, or as a bird walking right into a trap. The woman involved painted a picture of a night full of love for him and he fell into it. The Bible also said that her house was the way to hell and so many men have been destroyed by her. These were the understanding that the young man lacked. If he had known all these he would have thought twice before falling for this trap.
When a man or woman is void of understanding they take irrational steps that will eventually destroy them. A man or woman empty of understanding will settle for the immediate benefits rather than the eternal repercussions. Joseph was full of understanding of the eternal consequence of sleeping with his master’s wife. If he had done it he would have aborted his destiny. Samson was powerful, but was empty of understanding until he lost the grace of God on his life.
Getting understanding should be a top priority for you in life. It will go a long way to determine how you function in life. Each one of us is a reflection of the content of the understanding we possess. The word of God is the source of good understanding (Ps 119:130). The deeper our depth of understanding the better we function in life.
I am full of understanding. The Spirit of understanding is at work in my life.

[11/7, 5:48 AM] Pastor Emmanuel Oshevire: *LIFE AND FAVOUR*
*Rev. Anthony Akinmoyo,*
Lifeway Christian Centre,
Isaiah 41:10 (KJV)
*Fear thou not; for I am with thee: be not dismayed; for I am thy God: I will strengthen thee; yea, I will help thee; yea, I will uphold thee with the right hand of my righteousness.*
Matthew 28:20 (KJV)
*Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world. Amen.*
What a great word of comfort from the throne of God to us this morning.The Lord says He is with us always not sometimes. Bear in mind that when God is with us, nothing can be against us and succeed. Therefore, we have no reason to be afraid.
Ephesians 4:27 (KJV)
*Neither give place to the devil.*
Dr. Len Jones once said, “fear is the devil’s second name.” Until you give the devil a place, he cannot operate. The fear you accommodate through your words or thoughts is an avenue or opportunity given to the devil to carry out his evil acts.
Ecclesiastes 10:8 (KJV)
*”…whoso breaketh an hedge, a serpent shall bite him.”*
Job is a good example in this case. Scripture made it known that Job was heavily protected by God to the extent that satan bore witness of Job’s super safety.
Job 1:9-10 (KJV)
 *Then Satan answered the Lord , and said, Doth Job fear God for nought?*
 *Hast not thou made an hedge about him, and about his house, and about all that he hath on every side? thou hast blessed the work of his hands, and his substance is increased in the land.*
The root of disaster and evil that visited Job was his fear, Job’s fear ensnared him. Satan could not strike Job until he broke the hedge by himself. He declared with his mouth that he was not in safety.
Job 3:25-26 (KJV)
 *For the thing which I greatly feared is come upon me, and that which I was afraid of is come unto me.*
 *I was not in safety, neither had I rest, neither was I quiet; yet trouble came.*
Job 3:25-26 (MSG)
 *The worst of my fears has come true, what I’ve dreaded most has happened.*
 *My repose is shattered, my peace destroyed. No rest for me, ever—death has invaded life.*
In the law of the Spirit, both faith and fear have magnetic forces. Each draw or attract its kind. Whatever you believe God for will surely come. The same way whatever you are afraid of or fear will surely come. Fear is the gateway to evil occurrences. Job was perpetually living in fear before the evil he was afraid of came upon him.
Mark 11:23 (KJV)
*”…he shall have whatsoever he saith.”*
Proverbs 23:7 (KJV)
*”For as he thinketh in his heart, so is he…”*
Beloved, it is time we close the door of our destinies against the devil by checking out all forms of fear. I acknowledge there are so much negative news out there but you can choose to believe in the report of the Lord such as:
Psalms 91:10 (KJV)
*There shall no evil befall thee, neither shall any plague come nigh thy dwelling.*
Job 5:19-20 (KJV)
 *He shall deliver thee in six troubles: yea, in seven there shall no evil touch thee.*
 *In famine he shall redeem thee from death: and in war from the power of the sword.*
Hebrews 13:5 (KJV)
*Let your conversation be without covetousness; and be content with such things as ye have: for he hath said, I will never leave thee, nor forsake thee.*
Zephaniah 3:15 (KJV)
*The LORD hath taken away thy judgments, he hath cast out thine enemy: the king of Israel, even the LORD, is in the midst of thee: thou shalt not see evil any more.*
Disregard what the devil is doing and focus on the strength and integrity of your Father the Almighty. Do not submit your life to the tricks of the devil, resist him by standing firm on the word of God and he will flee from you.
James 4:7 (KJV)
*Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you.*
I see you and your family celebrate the goodness and close this year with outstanding testimonies in the mighty name of Jesus!
> Thank you my Father for this beautiful day you have made.
> Thank you my Lord for the salvation of my soul.
> Thank you Lord for supernatural supply
> Thank you my Father for your word I have received this morning.
> John 8:32 (KJV)
*And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.*
Thank you Father for the liberty I have received through your word this morning.
1 . 2 Kings 6:17 (KJV)
*And Elisha prayed, and said, Lord, I pray thee, open his eyes, that he may see. And the Lord opened the eyes of the young man; and he saw: and, behold, the mountain was full of horses and chariots of fire round about Elisha.*
O Lord my Father, open my eyes to see your divine provision for my all-round safety in Jesus mighty name!
2. Psalm 34:13 (KJV)
*Keep thy tongue from evil, and thy lips from speaking guile.*
O Lord my Father, I cancel all negative words I have spoken into my life and family knowingly or by error in Jesus mighty name!
3 . Psalm 118:17 (KJV)
*I shall not die, but live, and declare the works of the Lord.*
i. I cancel all spells of death around my life and family in Jesus mighty name!
ii. Anywhere I have ignorantly or mistakenly called death, I reverse it to life in Jesus mighty name!
iii. I declare I shall live to see good old age full of riches and honour in Jesus mighty name!
iv. I decree I shall not cast my young in Jesus mighty name!
V. I declare my seed shall be great on earth in Jesus mighty name!
4. Ezekiel 36:11 (KJV)
*And I will multiply upon you man and beast; and they shall increase and bring fruit: and I will settle you after your old estates, and will do better unto you than at your beginnings: and ye shall know that I am the Lord.*
O Lord my Father, settle me with my heart’s desire (husband, wife, children, job, promotion, lifting). Settle me o Lord in Jesus mighty name!
5. Psalm 17:5 (KJV)
*Hold up my goings in thy paths, that my footsteps slip not.*
O Lord my Father, uphold my going, do not allow the trap of the enemy catch up with me in Jesus mighty name!
6. Isaiah 60:11 (KJV)
*Therefore thy gates shall be open continually; they shall not be shut day nor night; that men may bring unto thee the forces of the Gentiles, and that their kings may be brought.*
O Lord my God, open the doors of greatness to me and my children in the mighty name of Jesus!
7. Psalms 65:11 (KJV) *Thou crownest the year with thy goodness; and thy paths drop fatness.*
O Lord my God, crown this year for me with testimonies that will humble the pride of men in the mighty name of Jesus Christ!
I decree and declare, kings shall come to my rising.
I shall eat in plenty and be satisfied.
I declare good old age, full of riches and honour is my portion in the mighty name of Jesus Christ!
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,
*Pray without ceasing.*

THEME: DON’T MISS HEAVEN.
And the twelve gates were twelve pearls: every several gate was of one pearl: and the street of the city was pure gold, as it were transparent glass. Revelation 21:21
READ: John 14:1-3
1 Let not your heart be troubled: ye believe in God, believe also in me.
2 In my Father’s house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you.
3 And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself; that where I am, there ye may be also.
No matter how beautiful any earthly city is, none is one-tenth as beautiful as heaven, and this is a fact. Do you know any city with streets and highways of pure gold? The answer is ‘NO’, however, Revelation 21:21 says the streets of Heaven are made of pure gold. Jesus says in John 14:2:
“ In my Father’s house are many mansions…”
Many years ago, I had the privilege of seeing my mansion in Heaven. It was already as big as an entire city, yet it was still being built. I asked the angel taking me on a tour what I would need a mansion that big for and he said there was a room in it for each of my spiritual children whenever they came to visit.
I once heard the story of an old couple who died and went to Heaven. When the angel taking them round got to a place where food was stored, they were surprised to see all sorts of food there- some of which their doctors had told them to stay away from on earth. The man, surprised, asked if those food items were not dangerous to their health. The angel told them there are no health issues in Heaven. The man turned to his wife in excitement and said “You should have let us eat whatever we wanted, so that we would have died and gotten here much earlier”
If you love music, Heaven is a place where you can hear the best music ever. The angels have such melodious voices that we coined the phrase ‘Angelic Voices’. Their melody and harmony is so sweet and perfect that when you hear them, you would get lost in the music.
A long time ago, some of us were praying for an elder who was dying when he suddenly looked up and said “Oh what beautiful voices, of what sweet music!” I knew he was hearing the angels singing to welcome him to Heaven, so we stopped praying and let him go.
In Heaven, there is no pain, no worries, just fun and worship to the Most High God. I am determined never to miss Heaven; I don’t know about you.
With the way you live your life now, are you on your way to Heaven or hell?
BIBLE IN ONE YEAR: Matthew 25

HYMN 27: TAKE MY LIFE AND LET IT BE.
1. Take my life and let it be
Consecrated, Lord, to Thee.
*Take my moments and my days,
Let them flow in endless praise.
2. Take my hands and let them move
At the impulse of Thy love.
Take my feet and let them be
Swift and beautiful for Thee.
3. Take my voice and let me sing,
Always, only for my King.
Take my lips and let them be
Filled with messages from Thee.
4. Take my silver and my gold,
Not a mite would I withhold.
Take my intellect and use
Every pow’r as Thou shalt choose.
5. Take my will and make it Thine,
It shall be no longer mine.
Take my heart, it is Thine own,
It shall be Thy royal throne.
6. Take my love, my Lord, I pour
At Thy feet its treasure store.
Take myself and I will be
Ever, only, all for Thee.

*TOPIC: DEALING WITH IDLENESS*
🗣️Refuse to sit down doing nothing. Do not watch time moving and nothing is happening in your life. Work for God! Give out a tract! Lead a soul to Christ! Engage in voluntary services! Invest your energy in lending a helping hand to someone in need of physical help. Do something!
*SCRIPTURE* 📖: Whatsoever thy hand findeth to do, do it with thy might; for there is no work, nor device, nor knowledge, nor wisdom, in the grave, whither thou goest. Ecclesiastes 9:10.
*THOUGHT FOR THE DAY* 🤔: Do what you find until you find what you want.
In our previous studies we saw the dangers of idleness.
Now, we shall seek to answer the question: What is the way out of idleness?
*I shall give you two counsels as a way of answering the above question.*
*1. Destroy idleness by all means (Ecclesiastes 9:10)*
Refuse to sit down doing nothing. Do not watch time moving and nothing is happening in your life. Work for God! Give out a tract! Lead a soul to Christ! Engage in voluntary services! Invest your energy in lending a helping hand to someone in need of physical help. Do something!
*2. Do what you find until you find what you want*
Do what you find until you find what you want. For example, if you have a master’s degree in Architecture and there is no vacancy for master’s degree holders in Architecture yet; if the only work you see is a menial job at a construction site, make up your mind to go for that job. If you studied Marine Engineering and there is no sea in the city where you live, look for anything you can lay your hands on to do.
Ecclesiastes 9:10 says, “Whatsoever thy hand findeth to do…” The Scripture did not say, “…whenever you findeth your profession; whenever you findeth what you studied in school”. Rather, the Scripture says: “Whatsoever your hands findeth…” When you look for whatever is “findable”, you will definitely see what to do.
So, make up your mind to destroy the spell of idleness.
Remember this: Do what you find until you find what you want.
*1. Refuse to maintain an idle mind; destroy idleness by all means* .
*2. Do what you find until you find what you want* .
*PRAYER* 🙏🏼: O Lord, I destroy idleness from my life. I receive the grace to do with all my might whatsoever my hands find to do, Lord, in Jesus’ Name.
