TOPIC: DIVINE INSPIRATION A KEY TO SPEED
SCRIPTURE: But there is a spirit in man: and the inspiration of the Almighty giveth them understanding. Job 32:8
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: Inspiration is a ladder for distinction; nothing makes a star like divine sense
Divine inspiration is gaining access to that which only God knows. It is coming to the point where you are supernaturally connected to hidden secrets from God.
The truth is,”the common man depends on his common sense and that is why he sees only common results in his life. But Kingdom people depend on Kingdom or Divine sense and experience extraordinary or excellent results in life. Divine inspiration is a ladder for distinction. There is something God would show you that can make you achieve in one day what would take others one year to achieve.
Divine secrets are behind the making of kingdom stars. Nothing makes a star like divine sense. Nothing distinguishes people like the wisdom of God.
Divine inspiration is critical to gaining unusual speed in life. To be devoid of supernatural wisdom is to wallow in struggles and frustrations in life. Nothing slows life and destiny down like the deficiency of divine inspiration and direction.
Beloved, do not molest yourself by waiting for a mortal man for hours to beg for money. Rather, desperately wait on the Lord for a divine idea. One idea that God would give you can wipe off your long-term pocket affliction (poverty) and terminate the yoke of slow motion in your life.
Today, I declare the release of fresh light, insight, inspiration, wisdom and idea that would give you a 360-degree turnaround, in Jesus’ Name.
REMEMBER THIS”: Inspiration is a ladder for distinction; nothing makes a star like sense
1. Get desperate and ask God to show you what to do that would turn your life around.
2. Consciously dig into the Scripture to contact insight or light for your total transformation.
PRAYER: Lord,”I make demands on fresh light that would terminate my night. I connect Your grace for speed in all my life’s endeavours. Satisfy me early O Lord, in Jesus’ Name.

[10/10, 5:38 AM] 919063: Clearly established goals
Thursday 10th October 2019
‘I press on towards the goal to win the prize for which God has called me.’ Philippians 3:14 NIV
In 1972, Life magazine published a story about the amazing adventures of John Goddard. When he was 15, his grandmother said, ‘If only I had done that when I was young.’ Determined not to make that statement at the end of his life, John wrote out 127 goals. He named ten rivers he wanted to explore and seventeen mountains he wanted to climb. He set goals of becoming an Eagle Scout, a world traveller and a pilot. Also on his list was riding a horse in the Rose Bowl parade, diving in a submarine, retracing the travels of Marco Polo, reading the Bible from cover to cover, and reading the entireEncyclopedia Britannica. He also planned to read the entire works of Shakespeare, Plato, Dickens, Socrates, Aristotle and several other classic authors. He desired to learn to play the flute and violin, marry, have children (he had five), pursue a career in medicine and serve as a missionary for his church. Sound impossible? At age 47, he had accomplished 103 of his 127 goals!
Now, your list of goals may not be as extensive as his, but if you don’t have some goals for your life you’ll have little motivation to get up in the morning and little satisfaction when you put your head on your pillow each night. And unless you try something beyond what you’ve already mastered, you won’t grow.
So set your goals in prayer, and with God’s help work towards them each day.

THEME: CROWD PULLING MIRACLES.
And a great multitude followed him, because they saw his miracles which he did on them that were diseased. John 6:2
READ: Matthew 19:1-2
1And it came to pass, that when Jesus had finished these sayings, he departed from Galilee, and came into the coasts of Judaea beyond Jordan;
2 And great multitudes followed him; and he healed them there.
All through the gospels, we see that great multitudes followed Jesus wherever He went. One reason for this is the great miracles He performed in people’s lives. We see an example of this in today’s Bible reading, where great multitudes followed Him and He healed them. Jesus is still in the business of healing and performing miracles today. Those who teach that the days of miracle are over are wrong. Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today and forever (Hebrews 13:8). He is risen from the dead and remains alive today and forevermore (Revelation 1:18). That same Jesus who healed the sick, raised the dead and cleansed lepers can do the same works today because He is alive, working His miracles through His followers. The signs that the Lord said will follow those who believe indicate that the days of miracles are not over (Mark 16:15-18). Moreover, our Lord also said that we will do the works that He did and even do greater works than His (John 14:12). Some argue that these miraculous works ended with the early apostles of Jesus Christ. This is equally wrong, because while giving us the mandate of the Great Commission, our Lord said in Matthew 28:20:
“Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you always, even unto the end of the world. Amen.”
If He is with us today as He was with the apostles, then He will also do through us the works He did through them.
Nevertheless, as we proclaim the message of the good news, we must not be lopsided in our preaching or indulge in preaching half-truths. The totality of God’s word must be preached to all. Our Lord Jesus Christ was not imbalance in His teachings on the kingdom of God. Unfortunately, some preachers today tend to be like the Pharisees and scribes of Jesus’ days by focusing on some aspects of Christ’s messages to the detriment of others. Such preachers should take heed take heed to Jesus’ words in Matthew 23:23, which says:
“Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye pay tithe of mint and anise and cummin, and have omitted the weightier matters of the law, judgment, mercy, and faith: these ought ye to have done, and not to leave the other undone.”
Jesus Christ is here saying, “I do not condemn you for teaching on tithing the tiniest income, but you left out some things that are more important, which you ought to do in addition to what you are doing already.” Brethren, how do we show people the reality of Jesus’ resurrection without manifesting His miracles? Even the most ardent critic cannot argue against physical proof of God’s power (John 4:48, Acts 1:3). When your local assembly becomes a miracle center, you will need little or no publicity before people begin to troop in to discover the Jesus whom you preach. Are signs and wonders following your declaration of the gospel?
Father, please establish Your word in my mouth with signs, wonders and miracles.

HYMN 17: HOLD THE FORT.
1. Ho, my comrades, see the signal, waving in the sky!
Reinforcements now appearing, victory is nigh.
“Hold the fort, for I am coming,” Jesus signals still;
Wave the answer back to Heaven, “By Thy grace we will.”
2. See the mighty host advancing, Satan leading on;
Mighty ones around us falling, courage almost gone!
3. See the glorious banner waving! Hear the trumpet blow!
In our Leader’s Name we triumph over every foe.
4. Fierce and long the battle rages, but our help is near;
Onward comes our great Commander, cheer, my comrades, cheer!
