There is a message

in the feeding of the five thousands (5,000) with Five loaves and Two fishes…. there is a lesson;  God can turn little into abundance. if you look deeply you will notice that the food was a need in that present time i.e. what ever the case might be Jesus is creative enough and mighty enough to improvise, augment, transform for your sake. Jesus blessed the food and abundance followed.

The waiting process sometimes is terrifying but there is always a response, we are citizens of heaven on assignment on the earth because he has made us witnesses and our life must glorify him who sent us he would not live us stranded, i turned not to God out of religious inheritance or by the reason of birth into a straight laced christian home but by the fact that when i needed response in my time of need, emptiness there was a deafening silence on different occasions from all dimensions of life, God intervened and he made know it was only him endued with power to deliver, this reaffirms the words of the most productive book in the world the “bible”  …No man receives anything except giving to him by the father” because in my uncertainty he has given me  unparalleled victory.    I might forget all but each time i remember how unworthy i am to have this provisions i stand Amazed and the fire is rekindled.

Prayer
I just pray that today and now God will be made strength in your weaknesses.
He will turn lack to abundance even before needs gets a name in your life… THANK YOU jESUS.

Reign in my vulnerability

From the genesis of my awakening and irreversible awareness of your existence, i am made to understand that you pull us strongly when we are vulnerable so that you become our strength in our vulnerable state…
Every Fear i have conquered was made possible through you, my victory is in you evidently, when people see me and see you in me i am filled with joy because it is a fulfillment of the scripture Gal 1:24 “And they glorified God in me.” And i am grateful for each redirection, for they are delightful and unforgettable, Psalm 119:24 “Thy testimonies are my delight and my counsellors”

Grace the gas for the race of life … 

Raymond Akpederi 

I have been made to understand that for you to be saved in the first place is by grace. That Grace is the only fundamental item you must have and retain for you to run the race of life … 

Grace gives you mandate … I am a benefactor of that grace but I speak to someone today who needs to forgive and release his or her hate to the wind I will be dammed if I neglect this topic .. yes Grace gives you the mandate to access God’s blessing and say bodly that you are a child of God … If you cause another man to SIn you are equally as guilty as the person who falls into temptation 

We must understand the bargain in the lords prayer as “forgive us our sins as we forgive those who tresspass against us” 

It is a bargain and it is not negotiable , it matters not if you wrong or right you must release that hate to the wind it is too much burden … It is a portal to sickness and diseases e.g. Eye blood pressure etc. 

When you choose to hold too against a person it gradually becomes a personal and a catalyst for a negative change 

Unforgiveness is a spirit … It is a hard one , you have to pray for grace to forgive , the grace to forgive is a superlative than the basic kind of grace . It is a virtue 

If you die with that hate in your heart where do you think you are headed ?? 

Save your soul !! Don’t let those battles you have won in the Christian race be in vain … You will run out of gas … You ought to be on the increase … God will help you try more … I had problems with tossing my hate, pain , anger  to the wind until I had an Encounter .. This might be your own encounter . 

Pray 

Fill me up Jesus and remove unforgiveness from my life. 

Father help me not to run out of grace in the race of life. 

Patience and Faith 

Behold, God is mine helper: the Lord is with them that uphold my soul. Psalm 54:4 

Father help me through my trials , I know having faith is by choice but  father help me to be still and have that faith to wait on you, sometimes I am firm in my resolve and sometimes I loose the faith out of anxiety .. help me father to live above the things of this world .. because I am not from Here. 

In search of solace 

You seek stillness in the storm of life seek God In him you will victory … Never accept that situation as a normal pray and keep praying for a change … I know sometimes my faith falls below expectations , I ought to have a violent faith but I do not know how my resolves shifts focus and reduces In durability and steadfastness but in this I am not ignorant of the testimonies you have given me each time I turned to you and times when I fail to turn … But I tarry for so many things my expectations and needs are exceedingly great and I have refused to limit myself because you are bigger than all my needs and fears which is greatly facillitated with uncertainty… Lord be my right hand and manifest strongly for I am long over due for your intervention, I no longer want to feel this way liberate my house hold and restore stillness again. Keep mevl standing for you.

OPEN HEAVENS DAILY DEVOTIONAL…
DATE: MONDAY JULY 17TH 2017
THEME: NO SHAKING!
Memorise:
Therefore will not we fear, though the earth be removed, and though the mountains be carried into the midst of the sea; Psalm 46:2
Read: Psalm 46:1-3
46:1 God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble.
46:2 Therefore will not we fear, though the earth be removed, and though the mountains be carried into the midst of the sea;
46:3 Though the waters thereof roar and be troubled, though the mountains shake with the swelling thereof. Selah.
Message:
When you have God as your refuge, you stand to derive numerous benefits. Having God as your Refuge places you in an advantageous position and makes you truly blessed. One of the blessings that money cannot buy is having divine cover over your life that keeps you safe from the enemy. If you consider your strengths and weaknesses, and take a stock of the opportunities and threats you are exposed to continuously, you will realize that having God as a Refuge is priceless benefit indeed. With God as your cover, you are shielded from so many attacks of the enemy. Even the losses that are programmed to come your way are terminated by God before they get to you. If you are not yet enjoying the strength of God’s cover, you are experiencing a big minus in your life.
Another benefit of having God as your Refuge is that His strength will be made available to help you in the time of trouble. Speaking about God’s strength, 1 Corinthians 1:25b gives this insight:

“…. and the weakness of God is stronger than men.”
In several scriptures, Good promises to help us in the time of need. For instance, Psalm 50:15 says,
“And call upon me in the day of trouble: I will deliver thee, and thou shalt glorify me.”

If God is not your Refuge and you call on Him when you need help, He may not respond to you. On the other hand, He easily responds to those under His cover. Are you under God’s cover? Is He your Refuge?

Moreover, when God is your Refuge, no matter what happens, there is no cause for alarm. Just think about this for a minute: Psalm 46:2-3 says that as you are under God’s cover, when there is an earthquake and uproar in the seas or even if the mountains are blown off their locations, you will still be safe where you are. Praise God! It is an anomaly for you to be under God’s protective cover and still be afraid of storms of life. Beloved, do not be scared of the storms confronting you! Don’t be afraid of the earthquake! Don’t even shake when the unmovable are moved from their secured places. Why? As long as God is your Refuge, you cannot be moved. Whatever cannot move God cannot move you. If out of fear, you have been displaced from under God’s cover, in the Name of Jesus Christ, as you repent of your lack of faith, the Lord will return you to the place of His Refuge! With God as your Refuge, there is no shaking for you!
Prayer Point:
Father, because You are my Refuge, let everything that is designed to shake me fail.

BIBLE IN ONE YEAR:

2 Samuel 10-11

Ezekiel 10:3-19
AUTHOR: PASTOR E. A. ADEBOYE
HYMN 9: ON THE HILL FAR AWAY
1. On a hill far away stood an old rugged cross,

The emblem of suff’ring and shame;

And I love that old cross where the Dearest and Best

For a world of lost sinners was slain.
Refrain:

So I’ll cherish the old rugged cross,

Till my trophies at last I lay down;

I will cling to the old rugged cross,

And exchange it someday for a crown.
2. Oh, that old rugged cross, so despised by the world,

Has a wondrous attraction for me;

For the dear Lamb of God left His glory above

To bear it to dark Calvary.

Refrain:
3. In that old rugged cross, stained with blood so divine,

A wondrous beauty I see,

For ’twas on that old cross Jesus suffered and died,

To pardon and sanctify me.

Refrain:
4. To the old rugged cross I will ever be true;

Its shame and reproach gladly bear;

Then He’ll call me someday to my home far away,

Where His glory forever I’ll share.

Refrain:

Battling my fears and winning the war 

Through every change I had to adapt to and find my bearing positively … I have had to battle my fear for the uncertain … It more like a feeling of getting scared of surprises … I have ambitions even greater than myself because the greatness I envisage as only be conceived by a glimpse by my mind , I need reassurance and solace from one who is higher than I am , God of my fathers … I speak to him but sometimes the defeaning silence sends fear down my entire being, what if I have done something wrong ? But I am lead back on track by the grace that pulled me to him in the first place despite all my wrong doings …. If he had not struck me down those times his mercy will speak. 

My fears are begining to take root trying to manifest in concrete and cystal clear imagery In  my dreams irrespective of my fears I will not accept the results of those fears so I renounce them and pray for its manifestation if it is positive , Lord do not tarry answer the prayers of my heart which is kick started at every moment I am lost In  thought and at peace with nothing on my to-do-list feel me Lord with boldness .. I cannot leave comfortabely knowing I hurt someone .. if I have heal me and have mercy … Shew me thy glory , show yourself strong …. #introspection 

I need your grace to run the race of life
