Morning Devotions

[3/26, 5:17 AM] Pastor Emmanuel Oshevire: Today’s SOD – 2020-03-26
TOPIC: THE POWER OF THE COVENANT

SCRIPTURE: And Abram said to the king of Sodom,”I have lift up mine hand unto the Lord, the most high God, the possessor of heaven and earth, That I will not take from a thread even to a shoelatchet, and that I will not take any thing that is thine, lest thou shouldest say, I have made Abram rich”: Genesis 14:22-23

THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: When you connect to God,”you become a progenitor of generational blessings.

In life, I have come to discover that one of the best thing that can happen to anyone is to be connected to God. The union of mortal man and the Most High God is the union of mortality with Immortality; it is the union of that which can die with that which Cannot Die. It is the union of impotence with Omnipotence. It is the union of the limited with the Limitless. It is the union of impossibility with Possibility. 

That was the kind of union that changed the life and destiny of Abraham. 

Now, what do we see from the union of God and Abraham? You can take note of the following”:

1. The union moved Abraham from existence as an unknown personality to existence as a generational principality. Nobody knew Abraham until he got connected to God,”the El-Shaddai, and was turned to a generational principality. No one can claim ignorance of Abraham (Genesis 12″:1-5).

 

2. The union moved Abraham from being a victim of generational curses to becoming a channel of generational blessings (Genesis 12:2-3).

The union of Abraham broke the curse and limitation of Abraham’s life and made him a generational blessing. When you connect to God,”you become a partaker and progenitor of generational blessings.

 

3. The union of Abraham with God moved him from the realm of chronic barrenness to the realm of ceaseless fruitfulness. (Genesis 17″:5-6).

The union broke the yoke of barrenness in the life of Abraham and made him to become a father of nations.

 

4. The union moved Abraham from existence as an individual to existence as an institution. 

Abraham came to a point where he was not just a person anymore but an institution. 

Beloved,”make up your mind to be addicted to God always. Don’t allow anything stand between you and your Maker.

 

REMEMBER THIS”: When you connect to God,”you become a progenitor of generational blessings.

ASSIGNMENTS”:

1. Determine to maintain a quality walk of covenant with God. 

2. Live with the mentality that you are destined to be a generational blessing and not a generational burden. 

PRAYER: Lord,”thank You for making me a partaker of the Blessing Covenant, and by this Blessing, every generational curse in my life and family is broken, in Jesus’ Name.

[3/26, 5:19 AM] Pastor Emmanuel Oshevire: OPEN HEAVENS DAILY DEVOTIONAL

DATE: THURSDAY 26TH MARCH 2020.

THEME: GOD’S PRINCIPLE.

MEMORISE:

Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap. Galatians 6:7

READ: Galatians 6:4-5

4 But let every man prove his own work, and then shall he have rejoicing in himself alone, and not in another.

5 For every man shall bear his own burden.

MESSAGE

God has principles and even He abides by them. For example, His principle is that for the cleansing of sins, there must be the shedding of blood, so when the blood of animals was not enough to take away sins, He did not change the principle; rather He sent His own Son (which was a great sacrifice) who was completely unpolluted to shed His blood for our sins (Hebrews :13, 10:12). This is why I wonder how people do things contrary to the principles of God, yet expect good result. If God, in His sovereignty abides by His own principles, then we ought to also.

One of His principles is that if you don’t work, you will not eat (2 Thessalonians 3:10). So, when a lazy fellow is asking for a breakthrough, I wonder if he expects God to drop the money into his lap. If you want to be wealthy, then you have to be willing to work and work hard. Another principle of wealth that God has laid down is the principle of giving. Do you know that even herbalist use this principle and it works? Yes, because God’s principles are universal; whoever obeys them will reap the fruits. The reason many Christians are still in poverty is simply because they do not give. Luke 6:38 says:

“Give, and it shall be given unto you; good measure, pressed down, and shaken together, and running over, shall men give into your bosom. For with the same measure that ye mete withal it shall be measured to you again.”

One general principle of God is that whatsoever you sow is what you will reap (Galatians 6:7). , This means that if you want kindness, sow kindness to others. If you want help, help others. There are so many prayers that will not be answered until we begin to work in line with God’s principles. His word is yea and amen; you cannot use prayers to cajole Him into going against His word. Do the right thing!

KEY POINT:

When you want something from God, check what His word says about it, then obey.

BIBLE IN ONE YEAR: Joshua 16-18

AUTHOR: PASTOR E. A. ADEBOYE

HYMN 30: WHEN WE WALK WITH THE LORD.

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

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
Trust and obey
For there’s no other way
To be happy in Jesus
But to trust and obey

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
Trust and obey
For there’s no other way
To be happy in Jesus
But to trust and obey

*STANDARD OF THE SPIRIT*

*Text: “…When the enemy shall come in like a flood, the Spirit of the Lord shall lift up a standard against them” Isa 59:19*

As we go through the journey of 2020 I want to inspire you afresh to stay conscious of God’s impenetrable defense around your life.
The battles of life that come against us are primarily spiritual. There are contentions on our lives every day that are not visible to the physical eyes. This optical limitation is not a reason for us to be victims in life. We also have a defense that is not visible to the physical eyes which is far more real than whatever the enemy can bring up against us. The Spirit of God raises a standard against every challenge that comes our way. A standard here simply means a defense, a barrier, something far stronger than what is coming against us. The Spirit of God has all it takes to confront whatever level of opposition that faces us.
The servant of Elisha woke up one morning and he saw that they were surrounded by the armies of the Syrians. The King of Syria rose up against Elisha with a flood of horses, chariots, and a great host. The servant of Elisha was so afraid and cried to meet his master. He was that fearful because he did not realize the existence of the “standard of the Spirit”. Elisha on the other hand was so relaxed because he was conscious of what was going on in the realm of the Spirit which the ordinary human eyes could not see. In response to the prayer of Elisha the eyes of the young servant was opened to see that Elisha was surrounded with horses and chariots of fire. This is a manifestation of the “standard of the Spirit”. This is a supernatural arrangement to deal with whatever challenge that comes our way in life.
Every time you are faced with such opposition in life, declared God’s word over yourself and take charge in prayer. The Spirit of God will raise a standard.

*PRAYER:*
Thank you Lord for the standard of the Spirit available for us in life. The enemies are rendered useless.

*PRAYER REQUEST: We curse the root of corona virus in the name of Jesus. Phil 2:9-11*

[3/26, 5:25 AM] Pastor Emmanuel Oshevire: *Morning Showers*** 🌦*
With Kingsley and Kemi Tobi
*26/03/2020*

    *The Covenant of Exemption part 1*
*Text* : Ex 8:22
” _But on that day I will deal differently with the land of Goshen, where my people live; no swarms of flies will be there, so that you will know that I, the Lord, am in this land. I will make a distinction between my people and your people. This sign will occur tomorrow_ .”

During the plagues which befell the land of Egypt, the Lord God made a covenant of exemption for His people. He said, “I will deal differently with the land of Goshen where my people live.” He made a distinction between His people and the Egyptians. He is the same God then and now. He has not changed. In this era of pandemic plaque, He will deal with us differently in the name of Jesus Christ, amen.

# Mal 3:16-18#
“On the day when I act,” says the Lord Almighty, “they will be my treasured possession. I will spare them, just as a father has compassion and spares his son who serves him. And you will again see the distinction between the righteous and the wicked, between those who serve God and those who do not.”

*There is a difference between those who serve the Lord God Almighty and those who do not.* He has promised to spare those who serve Him. What a good God He is. Those on the Lord’s side shall be safe from the enemy’s attacks. Let’s hold on to His word because He who has promised is able to perform it. Amen.

*Shalom* !
