Morning Devotions

[5/15, 5:52 AM] Pastor Emmanuel Oshevire: Today’s SOD – 2020-05-15

SCRIPTURE: For we wrestle not against flesh and blood,”but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places. Ephesians 6″:12

THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: The strength of your spirit determines the extent of your victory in the conflicts of life.

It is true that spiritual power and strength are necessary for the journey of destiny. We live in days where we cannot afford to be weak spiritually. The welfare of your destiny is determined by the buoyancy of your spirit.  Nobody can be weak spiritually and have a future in life. 

Now,”why is spiritual strength necessary? 

1. The strength of your spirit determines the extent of your victory in the conflicts of life (Ephesians 6″:10-13).

It was Bishop Oyedepo who said that life is warfare and not funfair,”a battlefield and not a playground. Your success or victory in battle is determined by your strength. When your strength becomes higher than that of the opponent, the battle becomes cheap to win.


2. The strength of your spirit determines the extent of your exploits (Daniel11″:32). 

It takes the strong to do exploits. Exploits refers to attention-commanding results. Exploits belong to the strong,”the aggressive, the violent and the audacious.

Today, I decree the release of spiritual audacity and fervency on you. The grace to step into the realm of results that will command your generation’s attention is released on you. Receive the grace for the kind of exploits that will destroy the devil and his kingdom, in Jesus’ Name.

REMEMBER THIS”: The strength of your spirit determines the extent of your victory in the conflicts of life.


1. Always make demands on spiritual strength at the place of prayer.

2. Ask for the grace to step into generational exploits and greatness.

PRAYER: Lord,”I ask for the grace to do exploits and destroy the works of the enemy here on earth, Lord in Jesus’ Name.


QUOTE”: To see His intervention in your life and in your Ministry,”you must endure to the end. To give up is to miss it completely. Culled from MAKING FULL PROOF OF MINISTRY by Dr Paul Enenche


AMAZING FACT: Humans shed 40 pounds of skin in their lifetime,”completely replacing their outer skin every month.

PROPHETIC WORD/DECLARATION”: Receive a fresh impartation of spiritual/supernatural strength now in Jesus’ Name.

[5/15, 5:53 AM] Pastor Emmanuel Oshevire: *INSPIRATION*
(Giving direction to your day)
*Ola Aina*

Friday 15th May, 2020


*Text: “For at that time day by day there came to David to help him, until it was a great host, like the host of God.” 1 Chron 12:22*

David was anointed to become a king over Israel right from a tender age. He really did not have any resources by himself to get to that throne. There were so many hurdles to cross to get to that throne. What God did was to organise men in thousands that literally helped David to get to where he was going.
These men came with weapons, resources, food materials, expertise and all that was required to establish God’s counsels for David.

This did not happen by chance. God organised this men to be available. This is also what God wants to do with our lives. There are people he had lined up in our path in life to get us to where we are going. The journey becomes easier and faster when we encounter such divine networking.

The mother of Moses dropped him by the sea side. By divine networking the daughter of Pharaoh picked him up and then employed the mother to take care of him. This didn’t happen by chance; God orchestrated everything. He knows who to place right where you’re going. This means in your life, there shouldn’t be unpleasant surprises; He’s the first and the last, and He’s organized everything from start to finish. Make a choice to go only in the direction He’s already charted for you. Some people go in the direction they created for themselves, and this is dangerous. In that path, there’s a lot of trouble, struggling and hardship. In God’s path, however, there’s no darkness. Everything is already prearranged according to the timing of His Spirit to be right there at the time you require it. This divine networking occurs as we learn to pray consistently in the Spirit. Men and resources are been moved in our favour.

Thank you Lord for opportunities you have created on my path in life. Thank you for networking my life.

*PRAYER REQUEST: Lord we ask for daily outpouring of your Spirit over the daily reading of Inspiration. Joel 2:28*

[5/15, 5:53 AM] Pastor Emmanuel Oshevire: OPEN HEAVENS DAILY DEVOTIONAL




Nevertheless let every one of you in particular so love his wife even as himself; and the wife see that she reverence her husband. Ephesians 5:33

READ: Ephesians 5:21-25

21 Submitting yourselves one to another in the fear of God.

22 Wives, submit yourselves unto your own husbands, as unto the Lord.

23 For the husband is the head of the wife, even as Christ is the head of the church: and he is the saviour of the body.

24 Therefore as the church is subject unto Christ, so let the wives be to their own husbands in every thing.

25 Husbands, love your wives, even as Christ also loved the church, and gave himself for it;


Likewise, ye husbands, dwell with them according to knowledge, giving honour unto the wife, as unto the weaker vessel, and as being heirs together of the grace of life; that your prayers be not hindered. 1 Peter 3:7

It is not God’s will for His children to do so well across many areas of life and then fail in their marriage. He wants us all to have successful Christian homes. Today, we shall look at the secrets of making your marriage heaven on earth.

Firstly, the couple must respect each other’s opinion even in controversial matters. Nobody has a monopoly on wisdom; hence they must be able to counsel each other. A man should never feel that his wife cannot give godly counsel. What is deficient in the husband may abound in the wife and vice versa.

Secondly, the wife must submit to the Lordship of the husband. Some women have been misled by modern concept to think submission is stupidity or slavery; this is not true, obedience to God’s word- no matter how illogical, brings success in life, including marriage. Years ago, one of my daughters-in-Christ came in for counseling because of cracks in her marriage. I realized she was arrogant, and the Lord asked me to tell her to be submissive to her husband. She disagreed, saying she was just as educated as he. When the crisis in her home persisted and I would offer no alternative, she complied and peace returned.

Thirdly, the husband must love his wife unconditionally. Don’t love her because of what you can gain from her; rather love her selflessly as Jesus loves the church. This is the only way to guarantee success in marriage (Ephesian 5:25). Jesus loves us with all our imperfections and is still working to perfect the saints for the last day.

With these foundational truths and other lessons the Holy Spirit will teach as we study the word of God on marriage, every believing couple can rest assured of a home that is heaven on earth.


Father, let my home be like heaven on earth, in the mighty name of Jesus.

BIBLE IN ONE YEAR: Psalm 3-4. 12-13, 28, 55.



1. God give us Christian homes!
Homes where the Bible is loved and taught,
Homes where the Master’s will is sought,
Homes crowned with beauty Your love has wrought;
God give us Christian homes;
God give us Christian homes!

2. God give us Christian homes!
Homes where the father is true and strong,
Homes that are free from the blight of wrong,
Homes that are joyous with love and song;
God give us Christian homes;
God give us Christian homes!

3. God give us Christian homes!
Homes where the mother, in caring quest,
Strives to show others Your way is best,
Homes where the Lord is an honored guest;
God give us Christian homes;
God give us Christian homes!

4. God give us Christian homes!
Homes where the children are led to know
Christ in His beauty who loves them so,
Homes where the altar fires burn and glow;
God give us Christian homes;
God give us Christian homes!
