[4/3, 5:38 AM] Pastor Emmanuel Oshevire: Today’s SOD – 2020-04-03
TOPIC: THE PROFIT OF UPRIGHTNESS
SCRIPTURE: It pleased Darius to set over the kingdom an hundred and twenty princes,”which should be over the whole kingdom; Then this Daniel was preferred above the presidents and princes…Then the presidents and princes sought to find occasion against Daniel concerning the kingdom; but they could find none occasion nor fault; forasmuch as he was faithful, neither was there any error or fault found in him. Daniel 6″:1,”3-4.
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY”: Integrity upholds destiny just as iniquity destroys destiny; to live upright is to end right up.
Our anchor Scripture makes it clear that Daniel was set above the princes and presidents because an excellent spirit was found in him. The princes wanted to find an occasion of accusation against him,”but they could not find any because there was no fault or error in him. He was faultless and blameless.
Always know that integrity upholds destiny just as iniquity destroys destiny. Let me give you one illustration”: The lion is the king of all the animals that move on land while the eagle is the king of all the birds that fly in the sky. And one thing that is common to these two animals is that they will never taste corruption.
Once a piece of meat is rotten,”it is not for the eagle. It may be for the vulture but not for the eagle. If a piece of meat is meant for the eagle, it must be fresh and dripping blood. The eagle has only one mate in its lifetime and that is why it is always up. No wonder it can fly at ten thousand feet above sea level and can also carry a weight that is three times its size. The eagle is regarded as a symbol of power, royalty and decency across many cultures in many nations of the world. For instance, the eagle is in the Coat of arms of countries like Nigeria, the USA and others. One reason the Eagle is the king of the birds is because of its purity.
Beloved, to live upright is to end right up. The profits of uprightness far outweigh any gain of iniquity. My counsel is, make up your mind to fulfil destiny by living right.
Remember this”: Integrity upholds destiny just as iniquity destroys destiny; to live upright is to end right up.
1. Refuse to be entangled with the corruption of the people of the world.
2. Make up your mind to live right always.
PRAYER: O Lord,”I ask for the grace to live right always. Deliver me from the pollutions and corruptions of this world, Lord, in Jesus’ Name.

AMAZING FACT”: The Lion begins to roar at the age of two.

[4/3, 5:39 AM] Pastor Emmanuel Oshevire: Read the fine print
Friday 3rd April 2020
‘Can two walk together, unless they are agreed?’ Amos 3:3 NKJV
When it comes to forming relationships, read the fine print. Somewhere in the fine print of meeting, dating and interacting with someone, it warned you, albeit ever-so-slightly, that they were going to be a certain way. The red flags were always there, even though they started out as a lovely shade of pink. You saw how quickly he got angry. You knew she was always late when you picked her up. He invariably went into a panic checking every line item on the restaurant bill. She never failed to flirt with the waiter – and anyone else who looked her way. You noticed, but you didn’t listen to the little voice inside of you.
Poet Maya Angelou said, ‘When someone shows you who they are, believe them the first time!’ Before you order something, read the fine print to make sure you can afford the payments. Maybe the fine print became obvious when you saw how he interacted with his family – or didn’t! Maybe it was in the way his eyes lingered on every woman who walked by. Or in the phone calls she took out of earshot when you were around. Chances are you saw it, but you didn’t pay attention. You overlooked the temper tantrums, the possessiveness, the jealousy and lack of integrity, thinking you could change them, or that they’d change for you. Now you know better.
There’s a reason the Bible asks, ‘Can two walk together, unless they are agreed?’ Yes, the God who gives ‘beauty for ashes’ can change your partner’s heart (see Isaiah 61:3). But if you’re dating or considering a long-term relationship, pray about it and read the fine print.

Friday, April 3rd.
_*Now ye are clean through the word which I have spoken unto you (John 15:3).*_
There’s a strong connection between bad habits and demonic influence; and frankly, they flow into each other. The human person is a spirit, and so, if he has a habit, it’s a spiritual habit. Habits are formed from repetition of actions. There’re good habits and there’re bad habits. If you practise good actions, they result in good habits; if you practise bad actions, they result in bad habits.
Satan often takes the opportunity of bad habits to manipulate people. However, he can’t force his will upon anyone ordinarily; rather, it’s about man yielding himself to the devil or refusing to do so. If he yields himself to the devil, then the devil takes advantage of him. Most people yield themselves without realizing they’re doing it. Hence, walking in the spirit and the knowledge of the Word is vital to a victorious Christian life.
In our opening scripture, Jesus said, _*“Now ye are clean through the word which I have spoken unto you.”*_ This means the Word of God is a cleanser; it purifies you. If you take the Word of God and meditate on it, it’ll rid you of anything that’s unwholesome or unclean. It’ll eradicate the darkness from your life.
Once, I was ministering to a lady, and rebuking the devil from her, and there was a young man standing behind me among those who were watching. When I was done, he got my attention and said, “Pastor, I used to have the same problem that you just dealt with in that lady. I had those same evil spirits in me.” I said, “So what happened?” He said, “Through meditation on God’s Word, they all left me.” That’s the power of God’s Word!
You don’t need to have deliverance services to cast out devils from Christians; teach them the Word. The Christian is superior to Satan; he’s seated with Christ, far above principality and power. So, if you’ve been under some demonic attacks or influence, if you’d consciously meditate on God’s Word, you’ll free yourself. You can say, “In the Name of Jesus Christ, I break the influence of Satan and evil spirits over my life and my actions and refuse to yield to their sway henceforth!”
