BE CONSCIOUS OF THE POWER IN YOU .
Tuesday, May 26th .
_*But ye shall receive power, after that the Holy Ghost is come upon you: and ye shall be witnesses unto me both in Jerusalem, and in all Judaea, and in Samaria, and unto the uttermost part of the earth (Acts 1:8).*_
2 Corinthians 4:7 says, _*“But we have this treasure in earthen vessels, that the excellency of the power may be of God, and not of us.”*_ There’s power in you. Ephesians 3:20 says, _*“Now unto him that is able to do exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that worketh in us.”*_ All of the power of divinity is at work in you; it’s not in heaven, but in your recreated human spirit. There’s no telling what you can do, how far you can go—the limitless extent of your success and prosperity—if you’d recognise and put the power in you to work.
What has affected many is their lack of consciousness of who they are and what they carry in them. The consciousness of the power of God in your life is the activating force. If you’re not conscious of who you are and what’s in you, it’ll not work. The Lord Jesus walked the earth with the consciousness of His divine origin and personality. He said, “All power is given to me in heaven and in the earth!” (Matthew 28:18). He knew it, and affirmed accordingly.
When He entered the synagogue, He said, _*“The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he hath anointed me to preach the gospel to the poor; he hath sent me to heal the brokenhearted, to preach deliverance to the captives, and recovering of sight to the blind, to set at liberty them that are bruised”*_ (Luke 4:18). What a consciousness! When He made that declaration, the devils couldn’t stand it; then He uttered words that brought healing and restoration to the sick and the afflicted. Glory to God!
1 John 4:17 says as He is, so are we in this world. The power of the Spirit is vested in you, because you’re one with Him; you’re a member of His body, of His flesh, and of His bones. You’re the representative of His Kingdom. The Holy Spirit came to live in you so the Kingdom, power, glory, righteousness and dominion of Christ would be manifested in and through you. Become conscious of this reality. Hallelujah!
*I’m an embodiment of divinity, an ambassador of Christ, replete with the maximum load of God! I refuse to think failure, defeat, or impossibilities, for I’m conscious of God’s indwelling power in me. Through meditation on the Word and speaking in tongues, I bring that power to bear on anything and in every area of my life, in Jesus’ Name. Amen.
Now unto him that is able to do exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that worketh in us, 21 Unto him [be] glory in the church by Christ Jesus throughout all ages, world without end. Amen.
2 Corinthians 4:7* But we have this treasure in earthen vessels, that the excellency of the power may be of God, and not of us.

*DAILY DEVOTIONAL BY DR PST PAUL ENENCHE*
*TUESDAY 26th MAY, 2020*
*TOPIC: WHAT ARE YOU ALIVE FOR?*
To be without prayer, study of the Word, praying in the spirit and worship, and still feel normal is a challenge. It is like a man satisfied without oxygen.
*SCRIPTURE* : For to me to live is Christ, and to die is gain. Philippians 1:2
*THOUGHT FOR THE DAY* : For a person to live in sin, stay disconnected from the Presence of God and feel normal is a disaster about to happen.
We understand from Scriptures that Abraham, without a doubt existed in his days as a generational blessing. He lived a life that even demons envied. Abraham is looked upon by everyone as a highly unusually fortunate personality.
Now, what was Abrahams secret? He was alive for only one thing and only one person, and that is Jehovah EL SHADDAI. He refused to give glory to any man for his blessings.
Now, in order to exist as a generational blessing, there are questions for us to answer and if we can answer them correctly, then our blessing in this generation cannot be contested, and in eternity, it is confirmed:
1. What are you alive for? (Philippians 1:21).
If it is not Christ, then there is no need to be alive. When your time to depart comes and you are no longer alive, what will be the implication of your absence?
2. Who is the strength of your confidence in life?
Some trust in their beauty and others trust in their certificates. Some even trust in their spiritual activities but who is the strength of your confidence?
3. What drives you?
What can be called your greatest passion on earth, to make money or to make impact? Is it to please God or to please self or people?
4. What gives you your greatest pleasure in life?
What is it that gives you your greatest excitement in life?
*Beloved,* for a person to live in sin, stay disconnected from the Presence of God and feel normal is a disaster about to happen. To be without prayer, study of the Word, praying in the spirit and worship, and still feel normal is a challenge. It is like a man satisfied without oxygen. Live with eternity in mind and you will be a generational asset to your generation and to the Kingdom of God.
*REMEMBER THIS* : For a person to live in sin, stay disconnected from the Presence of God and feel normal is a disaster about to happen.
1. Ask yourself the questions in this study.
2. Live with the consciousness of eternity always.
*PRAYER* : Lord, help me to be eternity-conscious. Let my life be free from sin and guilt, Lord, in Jesus Name.
*FOR FURTHER: UNDERSTANDING, GET THIS MESSAGE: BEING A GENERATIONAL BLESSING WHAT ARE YOU ALIVE FOR?*
*QUOTE* : Integrity compels audacity and iniquity invites calamity. Culled from *15 KINGDOM STRATEGIES FOR SURVIVAL by Dr Paul Enenche*
*DAILY BIBLE READING: Psalm 52-54*
*AMAZING FACT* : While lions and leopards usually do their hunting at night, cheetahs hunt for food during the day.
*PROPHETIC WORD/DECLARATION* : The grace to live with one focus alone in this life, and that is to please God, is released on you in Jesus Name.
*Good Morning 🌹*

THEME: CHOOSE HAPPINESS.
If ye know these things, happy are ye if ye do them. John 13:17
READ: John 13:13-17
13 Ye call me Master and Lord: and ye say well; for so I am.
14 If I then, your Lord and Master, have washed your feet; ye also ought to wash one another’s feet.
15 For I have given you an example, that ye should do as I have done to you.
16 Verily, verily, I say unto you, The servant is not greater than his lord; neither he that is sent greater than he that sent him.
17 If ye know these things, happy are ye if ye do them.
Today’s memory verse makes us know clearly that we can influence our happiness. We can also deduce that knowledge is a requirement for happiness and this knowledge is from God.
“ If any of you lack wisdom, let him ask of God, that giveth to all men liberally, and upbraideth not; and it shall be given him….. Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and cometh down from the Father of lights, with whom is no variableness, neither shadow of turning.” James 1:5,17
Getting knowledge too is a choice. There are people who have refused education despite so much persuasion. Most of such people end up as failures and become unhappy for the rest of their lives. It was however their choice. Likewise, some people deliberately follow other gods and this too could be a source of sorrow (Psalm 16:4). As temporal as wealth is when compared with spiritual and eternal blessings, lack of it may cause unhappiness. Even the Bible says “The rich ruleth over the poor, and the borrower is servant to the lender.” (Proverbs 22:7).
How can you become happy and remain so? Beloved, it is not enough to have knowledge, we must learn to do (John 13:17).
In today’s Bible reading, Jesus taught His disciples a secret of happiness- service to God and humanity. When you serve God and make Him the Lord over all your affairs, you will be happy (Psalm 144:15).
We would also be happy if you know how to get out of poverty in a Godly manner. Act according to Malachi 3:10 which commands us to pay our tithes so the widows of heavenly blessings can be open upon the works of your hands.
Beloved, I encourage you to choose happiness today. Jesus Christ, the Son of the living God and the Savior of the world is the only way to true happiness and eternal life (John 3:16-18).
Father, I choose to be happy today; I come to You through Your Son, Jesus. please, give me joy eternal.

HYMN 3: BE GLAD IN THE LORD AND REJOICE.
1. Be glad in the Lord, and rejoice,
All ye that are upright in heart;
And ye that have made Him your choice,
Bid sadness and sorrow depart.
Be glad in the Lord and rejoice;
Be glad in the Lord and rejoice.
2. Be joyful, for He is the Lord
On earth and in Heaven supreme;
He fashions and rules by His word—
The “Mighty” and “Strong” to redeem.
3. What though in the conflict for right
Your enemies almost prevail?
God’s armies, just hid from your sight,
Are more than the foes which assail.
4. Though darkness surround you by day,
Your sky by the night be o’ercast,
Let nothing your spirit dismay,
But trust till the danger is past.
5. Be glad in the Lord, and rejoice,
His praises proclaiming in song;
Let gratefulness give all a voice,
The loud hallelujahs prolong!
