Morning Devotions

[2/3, 5:04 AM] 919063: Today’s SOD – 2020-02-03
TOPIC: DOMINION IN DISCOVERY

SCRIPTURE: And Jesus answered and said unto him,”Blessed art thou, Simon Barjona”: for flesh and blood hath not revealed it unto thee,”but my Father which is in heaven. And I say also unto thee, That thou art Peter, and upon this rock I will build my church; and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it.  Matthew 16″:17-18

THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: The level of dominion you have exercised so far is a function of your discoveries.

Many years ago,”Paul Yonggi Cho was trying to cast out a demon from someone. He said he did everything he could but the devil remained. All of a sudden, he got a flash of light in his spirit and he told the demon”: “demon,”you have to go out now! Two thousand years ago, my elder brother, Jesus Christ defeated you on my behalf and I stand in His shoes to ask you to get out.” The devil replied with something like, “Hold on, hold on! I will go but please do not tell anyone this secret because many people are not aware of it.” Then the demon left. 

Beloved, it is the knowledge of whose you are and who you are that gives you dominion in life. Search the Scripture and let God reveal you to you.

When Jesus said to His disciples, who do men say I am? Peter said, you are the Christ the son of the Living God (Matthew 16″:15-16). By that discovery,”Jesus said to Peter, thou art Peter, and upon this rock I will build my church; and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it. That is, step into dominion by what you have just discovered.

Beloved, there is something you can see out of Scripture that will make you shift in power, authority, audacity, and boldness. The level of dominion you have exercised so far is a function of the discoveries you have made. Light is reflective. When you carry light, you do not beg darkness; darkness naturally excuses itself as light arrives. So, if you are lacking in power or dominion, then you must step up in discoveries, discoveries from Scripture. 

REMEMBER THIS”: The level of dominion you have exercised so far is a function of your discoveries.

ASSIGNMENT(S):

1. Locate Scriptures that will position you as an authority in the realms you desire,”and meditate on them.

2. Surrender your will completely to God so that your dominion and audacity can be established.

PRAYER: Lord,”I surrender my will to You. Please show me a revelation that will shift me to a higher realm of dominion and power with You, Lord, in Jesus’ Name.

DAILY BIBLE READING”: Deuteronomy 7-10.

QUOTE: Who you are determines your voice and your audience; it determines your authority. Culled from WHO ARE YOU? By Dr Paul Enenche.

AMAZING FACT: In his lifetime,”A. A Allen Revival, Inc. was publishing ‘well over’ 60 million pieces of literature a year to propagate the gospel.

DON’T FORGET TO ATTEND”: The Healing and Deliverance Service by 9:00 am tomorrow. Invite someone. God bless you as you do so.

PROPHETIC WORD/DECLARATION: In this season, your destiny opens up drastically, dramatically and dimensionally in Jesus’ Name.

[2/3, 5:22 AM] 919063: How’s your marriage? (1)

Monday 3rd February 2020

‘He who finds a wife finds a good thing, and obtains favour from the Lord.’ Proverbs 18:22 NKJV

If you’re over sixty, chances are you grew up in an era where you didn’t know too many divorced couples and the subject was taboo. Now your children are growing up in a world where marriages fail every day. If you don’t want yours to be one of them: (1) Learn to show your love. Psychologist William James says, ‘The deepest principle in human nature is the craving to be appreciated.’ And if we don’t feel appreciated at home, there’s a good chance we won’t feel appreciated at all because, generally speaking, the world doesn’t fulfil that desire. The best thing you can do for your spouse and your children is appreciate them and love them – not based on their performance, but simply because they’re yours.

(2) Pay attention. The Reverend Theodore Hesburgh, President Emeritus of the University of Notre Dame, said, ‘The most important thing a father can do for his children is to love their mother.’ And that works both ways. A successful marriage is one that can go from crisis to crisis and keep getting stronger. Commitment, not emotion, is what carries you through. If you only intend to stay married as long as you feel like you’re in love, you might as well quit now. Like anything worthwhile, a good marriage requires constant attention.

(3) Protect your time together. If you feel like you ought to be at work when you’re with your family and vice versa, something’s wrong. Call a family conference and agree on how much time you should spend together. If you prioritise and protect those times, your marriage will thrive.

[2/3, 5:27 AM] 919063: OPEN HEAVENS DAILY DEVOTIONAL

DATE: MONDAY 3RD FEBRUARY 2020.

THEME: LET YOUR MODRATION BE KNOWN 1

MEMORISE:

Let your moderation be known unto all men. The Lord is at hand. Philippians 4:5

READ: Deuteronomy 4: 23-24

23 Take heed unto yourselves, lest ye forget the covenant of the LORD your God, which he made with you, and make you a graven image, or the likeness of any thing, which the LORD thy God hath forbidden thee.

24 For the LORD thy God is a consuming fire, even a jealous God.

MESSAGE

This generation is generally called the digital age because with a handheld device, you can connect with anyone in the world. This is actually very good but the concern is in such device taking total control of you. These days, many are so preoccupied with their phones that they do not have time for God and what matters to Him. For some, the first thing they pick when they wake in the morning is the phone and not the Bible. Others can spend one hour on social media yet cannot spend same studying God’s word or praying. This shows that such hearts are more drawn to the phone than God. Don’t give the devil the liberty to rob you of God’s blessing.

Are you not already giving a phone the place of God? Have you observed that the position many take when using a phone is such that their heads are bowed? (Exodus 34:14). Exodus 20:2-3 says:

“I am the LORD thy God, which have brought thee out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of bondage. Thou shalt have no other gods before me.”

If you have to delete applications on your phone that you are addicted to, do so. If it will take you to place a Bible over your phone at night so when you reach out for the latter in the morning, it is the former you would pick instead, do so. Put measures in place to ensure you prioritize activities that will make you grow spiritually.

Many Christians now prefer electronic Bibles. However, with the Bible applications on the phones and tablets, there would be distractions from other applications on the device and the Spirit in the word of God cannot minister to a distracted mind. If you must use the electronic Bible, it would be best to go offline to cut off distractions from calls and messages. I play the audio Bible before I go to bed so that all night, God’s word is being read aloud in my room while I am sleeping. You can do so too.

REFLECTION:

Which one takes more of your time daily, you Bible or social media? If it is the later, repent and commit to amending your ways.

BIBLE IN ONE YEAR: Exodus 13-15
