*Text: “Now the Lord is that Spirit: and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty.” 2 Corinth 3:17*

I sense there is someone today that must be set free from every form of emotional and mental barrier. I have come today to declare over you the liberty of the Spirit. Every form of bondage on your life is illegal; the son of God sets you free. Your freedom was concluded on the cross. You don’t have to stay another day in that self-pity and guilt mood.

There is no disadvantage in the realms of the Spirit. You can reach for as much as you desire. What someone else has is never a barrier to what you can have. What someone else has done has no hindrance to what you can do. No man can limit what you can get in God. A man may limit what they give to you and what they do for you; but they cannot determine what God does with you. You have a limitless privilege in God. If you will face life daily with this mind-set you will be am amazement to your world.
Romans 10:12 says “For there is no difference between the Jew and the Greek; for the same Lord over all is rich unto all that call upon him.” Everyone that will call upon God in faith and a true heart has an equal privilege to receive from him. What an awesome privilege that we have in God to be the best we can be by taking advantage of all that God has made available for us. God has given us an open check to reach out for as much as we desire. There is no legitimate expectation that we place on God that will be too much for God.
Let your faith rise higher; there is no limit in God. Any form of limitations around us is artificial and temporary.

Please go out today with the mind-set of a champion. You are not turning back from any challenge today. Like David you can face any Goliath that shows up today in the name of Jesus.

There are no limits on my life. I’m riding on the wings of the Spirit. The everlasting arms are carrying me.

[8/17, 6:22 AM] Pastor Emmanuel Oshevire: MESSAGE FROM:

*Rev. Anthony Akinmoyo*
Lifeway Christian Centre,


Isaiah 58:11 (NLT) *The Lord will guide you continually, watering your life when you are dry and keeping you healthy, too. You will be like a well-watered garden, like an ever-flowing spring.*

As we commence our journey into a new week let us be mindful of God’s leading because it is His presence and guidance that guarantee rest in life. I believe, that was why David prayed on several occasions that God should tell him what to do and to show him the right way.

Psalms 27:11 (TLB) *Tell me what to do, O Lord, and make it plain because I am surrounded by waiting enemies.*

Beloved, the pathway to destiny fulfilment is too complex to walk it alone.

Proverbs 14:12 (MSG) *There’s a way of life that looks harmless enough; look again—it leads straight to hell.*

Who guides you will determine what follows you. Who you are following will determine what will be following you. You cannot be following God and disaster will be following you. No! It cannot happen. It is goodness and mercy you will be enjoying. Therefore, whatever steps you are taking in life, be it marital, business, career, educational etc., let God be the One leading you and you will be commanding unusual results.
Ps 23:1,6

Moses asked the Lord who will go with him and the Lord promised him that He will go with him and give him rest.

Exodus 33:13-14
[13] *Now therefore, I pray thee, if I have found grace in thy sight, shew me now thy way, that I may know thee, that I may find grace in thy sight: and consider that this nation is thy people.*
[14] *And he said, My presence shall go with thee, and I will give thee rest.*

Please, never take any step without full assurance that the Lord is the One that will lead you. Many are miserable today because all their past decisions excluded God. They moved only by physical appearance or material assets and they ended in frustration. Some are in wrong career, location, marriage and business just because they followed the crowd rather than God. But when God leads, He will make greatness out of your life. Therefore, whatever step you are to take in life, make sure God is with you to lead and guide you. Kindly avoid being guided by carnality or crowd but let God lead you. Commit your thoughts and ways into His hand and He will guide your steps.

Proverbs 16:3 (NLT) *Commit your work to the Lord, and then your plans will succeed.*

One wrong step can destroy an entire destiny: marriage, business empire. Be wise and be led!


1. Thank you my Father for the gift of a new day with new mercies.

2. Thank you my Father for your unspeakable peace in my life and family.

3. Thank you my Father for always being mindful of me.

4. Jeremiah 29:11 (KJV)
*For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith the LORD, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end.*

Thank you my Father for your plans to prosper me and give me an expected end.

5. Psalms 143:10 (KJV)
*Teach me to do thy will; for thou art my God: thy spirit is good; lead me into the land of uprightness.*

O Lord my Father, teach and show me the way to fulfil your divine purpose in my life in the mighty name of Jesus!

6. Psalm 43:3
*O send out thy light and thy truth: let them lead me; let them bring me unto thy holy hill, and to thy tabernacles.*

O Lord my Father, let your light lead and guide me always in Jesus mighty name!

7. O Lord my God, lead me into your next phase for my life in the mighty name of Jesus!

8. Matthew 6:13
*And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil…*

O Lord my God, lead and guide me out of error and temptation in the mighty name of Jesus!

9. Deuteronomy 8:7
*For the LORD thy God bringeth thee into a good land, a land of brooks of water, of fountains and depths that spring out of valleys and hills.*

O Lord my God, grant me access into the realm of more than enough in Jesus mighty name!

10. Isaiah 45:2
*I will go before thee, and make the crooked places straight: I will break in pieces the gates of brass, and cut in sunder the bars of iron:*

O Lord my Father, let your presence go before me and break down every barrier between me and my glorious throne in Christ.


> I decree in the name of Jesus, whatever that has been limiting my life and destiny is broken asunder.

Esther 7:10 (KJV) *So they hanged Haman on the gallows that he had prepared for Mordecai. Then was the king’s wrath pacified.*

> Whoever that says my destiny will not go up, go down for me in Jesus mighty name!

> I decree nothing shall stop my greatness in the mighty name of Jesus!

> I decree I shall rise above every storm in the mighty name of Jesus!

> I decree and command the earth to bring forth increase unto me in the mighty name of Jesus!

Isaiah 60:22 (KJV) *A little one shall become a thousand, and a small one a strong nation: I the LORD will hasten it in his time.*

> I decree and declare I shall never be small in the mighty name of Jesus!

> I declare, lines are fallen unto me in pleasant places in the mighty name of Jesus !

> I declare, doors and gates of greatness are open on to me in the mighty name of Jesus!

Thank you Father for working exceedingly and abundantly above all that I ask or think.

Thank you Father for the uncommon results and answers.

Receive my thanks in Jesus mighty name!

See you tomorrow,
*Rejoice evermore.*
*Pray without ceasing.*
1 Thessalonians 5:16-17

Rejoicing in hope; patient in tribulation; continuing instant in prayer. Romans 12:12

READ: Matthew 5:10-12

10 Blessed are they which are persecuted for righteousness’ sake: for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.

11 Blessed are ye, when men shall revile you, and persecute you, and shall say all manner of evil against you falsely, for my sake.

12 Rejoice, and be exceeding glad: for great is your reward in heaven: for so persecuted they the prophets which were before you.


Abraham, despite being childless at ninety, kept his hope to be a father of many nations (Romans 4:18). However, many Christians today have lost hope in God’s promises, waiting for their physical manifestation before they believe.

If you are in the category of Christians described above, ask God today for grace to remain hopeful in His promises for your life.

Abraham for example enjoyed this grace (Romans 4:16) even before Jesus was born and our savior confirmed this when He said: “Your father Abraham rejoiced to see my day: and he saw it, and was glad” (John 8:56). The grace was so sufficient that he hoped against all odds and developed faith that earned him friendship with the Almighty God.

Hope is a key element in describing faith (Hebrews 11:1) without which no man can please God (Hebrews 11:6). Hope ensures that we obey His command to always rejoice (1 Thessalonians 5:16) even in the midst of tribulations.

Hope is the assurance that what we desire will come to pass (Romans 8:24). Today’s memory verse also lets us know that through hope, we can develop patience and strength especially in tribulation. It is saddening however, that some Christians lose hope and backslides in the face of trials. This ought not to be.

In today’s Bible reading, Jesus talks about rejoicing as a means of endurance, as well as the blessings attached to enduring persecution. James 1:12 also says:
“Blessed is the man that endureth temptation: for when he is tried, he shall receive the crown of life, which the Lord hath promised to them that love him.”

Hope also helps one to tarry for results in the place of prayer. Someone who lacks hope wont pray long before searching for an alternative.

Abraham had faith in God and it was imputed to him for righteousness (Romans 4:17-22). Beloved, are you losing hope already? Please do not, because there is glory ahead of you. Be patient so you can obtain (Colossians 1:27).


Take time to give God intense worship even when it seems difficult to do so. Hope shall rise for your comfort.

BIBLE IN ONE YEAR: Jeremiah 38-40. Psalm 74, 79



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.

o Refrain:
Rejoice, rejoice,
Be glad in the Lord and rejoice;
Rejoice, 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!
