Confess your faults one to another, and pray one for another, that ye may be healed. The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much. James 5:16
READ: Ecclesiastes 4:9-12
9 Two are better than one; because they have a good reward for their labour.
10 For if they fall, the one will lift up his fellow: but woe to him that is alone when he falleth; for he hath not another to help him up.
11 Again, if two lie together, then they have heat: but how can one be warm alone?
12 And if one prevail against him, two shall withstand him; and a threefold cord is not quickly broken.

HYMN 22: OH LORD MY GOD!.
1. O Lord my God, When I in awesome wonder,
I see the stars, I hear the rolling thunder,
Thy power throughout the universe displayed.
Then sings my soul, My Saviour God, to Thee,
How great Thou art, How great Thou art.
Then sings my soul, My Saviour God, to Thee,
How great Thou art, How great Thou art!
2. When through the woods, and forest glades I wander,
And hear the birds sing sweetly in the trees.
When I look down, from lofty mountain grandeur
And see the brook, and feel the gentle breeze.
3. And when I think, that God, His Son not sparing;
Sent Him to die, I scarce can take it in;
That on a Cross, my burdens gladly bearing,
He bled and died to take away my sin.
4. When Christ shall come, with shout of acclamation,
And take me home, what joy shall fill my heart.
Then I shall bow, in humble adoration,
And then proclaim: “My God, how great Thou art!”

‘None of them belonged to us.’ 1 John 2:19 NIV
There are some people in life we get along with well, and others we don’t. And in some cases, we’re not supposed to! Now let’s be clear: we’re not talking about being unloving, insensitive or divisive. Paul says, ‘Do all that you can to live in peace with everyone’ (Romans 12:18 NLT). We’re talking about people God specifically tells us to break away from.
When it comes to those who don’t belong in your life, here are two things to consider. First, there’s the revelation. The Bible says: ‘They went out from us, but they did not really belong to us…if they had…they would have remained…but their going showed that none of them belonged to us’ (1 John 2:19 NIV). Just like you can’t fit a square peg in a round hole, or mix oil and water, there are people who simply don’t belong in your life. Second, there’s the separation. Paul said: ‘Do not be yoked together with unbelievers…what fellowship can light have with darkness? What harmony is there between Christ and Belial?…what does a believer have in common with an unbeliever? What agreement is there between the temple of God and idols? For we are the temple of the living God. As God has said: “I will live with them…walk among them…be their God, and they will be my people.” Therefore, “Come out from them and be separate…and I will receive you.”… “I will be a Father to you, and you will be my sons and daughters”‘ (2 Corinthians 6:14-18 NIV).
When God tells you a relationship is not right for you, listen, and obey him.

(Giving direction to your day)
Friday 14th February, 2020
*Text: “Not because I desire a gift: but I desire fruit that may abound to your account.”Phil 4:17*
If you walk into any bank in your country to make withdraws one of the first thing that the cashier will check is if you have any bank account, there or not. Then it will also be confirmed if you have money deposited into your account or not. There can never be withdrawals without a deposit. Nobody will allow you to withdraw from another person’s deposit.
There is also a heavenly bank account from which any of us can make withdraws from depending on the deposits we have made into our heavenly account.
So many of us don’t even have any deposit to draw from. Unlike the earthly banks we don’t carry physical cash to the bank of heaven.
Deposits are made in our heavenly accounts as we make doing good a way of life. We must go out of our ways to reach out to people around us. We actually make deposits in our heavenly accounts as we make deposits in men. Every act of love and kindness is filling our heavenly account with deposits (1 Tim 6:17-19).
The beauty about this is that in the day of challenge we can always make withdrawals from our account. What we get from our accounts is not just money. We get divine interventions in our health, our academics, businesses and career. Hezekiah was told that he should prepare to die because he was very sick. What he simply did was to remind God of all the deposits he had made for years. From that deposit he withdrew an extra fifteen more years.
Get conscious of making deposits in your heavenly account. Every opportunity to be a blessing is an opportunity to increase your heavenly account from where you can eventually draw out from.
In the name of Jesus I receive grace to be highly involved in filling up my heavenly account.

TOPIC: THE CANCELLED APPOINTMENT WITH DEATH
SCRIPTURE: Let the sighing of the prisoner come before thee; according to the greatness of thy power preserve thou those that are appointed to die. Psalm 79:11
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: When you walk in power,”you are not under any obligation to keep a satanic appointment.
Sometime ago, before one of our major conferences, I encountered one green-eyed demon in the dream of the night who gave himself, not me, a deadline to live; he gave himself the time he would die. When I woke up, I trashed the dream. And to confirm how useless that dream was, I did not tell my wife anything about it. Such a dream is too inconsequential, infinitesimally insignificant to be considered a matter. The date came and passed very well before I told my wife. The devil was so mesmerised. That was an appointment with death that was cancelled.
There is something they call satanic hit list – the list of people to be eliminated by the devil. There are people against whom witches have planned in their covens or occult realms that within so and so time they would die but such appointments against you are scattered in Jesus’ Name.
Beloved, the power of God is what cancels appointments with death; it delivers God’s people from every demonic appointment with death. The scripture says, …according to the greatness of thy power preserve thou those that are appointed to die (Psalm 79″:11). So,”when you walk in power, you are not under any obligation to keep satanic appointments.
I declare that every demonic schedule they have given you in the realm of the spirit is hereby cancelled, in Jesus’ Name!
REMEMBER THIS”: When you walk in power,”you are not under any obligation to keep a satanic appointment.
1. Always believe that you are not an easily wastable material.
2. Connect to the preservation power of God’s Word continually.
FOR FURTHER UNDERSTANDING,”GET THIS MESSAGE”: PRESERVED BY HIS POWER
PRAYER: O Lord,”thank You for the privilege of walking in Power. By Your Power Lord, I have no appointment with the devil and his agenda. I shall fulfil my days in the land of the living, in Jesus’ Name.
DAILY BIBLE READING”: Joshua 17-20
QUOTE: No devil can find a person whom God hides. Culled from PRINCIPLES AND POWER OF PRAYER by Dr Paul Enenche.
AMAZING FACT: Limits of the universe have never been discovered. But as large as it is,”the God that we serve is bigger. The heaven declares the glory of God because the vastness of the heaven declares the vastness of our God.
DON’T FORGET TO ATTEND”: The Home Church meeting by 6:00pm tomorrow at a Dunamis Home Church near you. Also invite your friends and neighbours. God bless you as you do so.
PROPHETIC WORD/DECLARATION: Every appointment of death for you or anyone related, connected or associated with you is cancelled in Jesus’ Name.
