You are the Lord that is Your Name, You will never share Your glory with anyone, You will never share glory with anybody, Almighty God that is Your Name 2x. // I will lift up Your name (repeat), I will lift up Your Name above every other Name O God!

Yes Lord let Your Name be lifted up to the Highest for You are God and You liveth forever more. Blessed be Thy Holy Name forever. Thank You Father, for another privilege to come into Your presence. Thank You for we do not take it for granted, because in Presence there is love, peace, protection, fruitfulness, safety, in Your Presence there is healing , there is deliverance and restoration. Thank You for as many as we read today’s devotional will take their portions in Jesus Name.

Beloveth, how are doing today? Wow! It’s been great, isn’t it? Well we Thank God Who is forever Faithful and ever Loving, Who will never be tried of us because we are His creation and He delight to see us happy, hearty and rejoicing. Glory be to His Holy Name forever and forever.

Am excited this morning, do you why? If I allow you to guess, do you think your will be right? Well, let me help you and keep down the suspense. I am excited about who I am in God. Wow! Of all things God created, none has the image of God but for me He said ‘ let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over…… so God created man in the image in His own image, in the image of  God created He Him; male and female created He them (Gen 1:26-27).

Beloved, He went further to one important thing that only Him can do and that is written in verse 28 of chapter 1 genesis, “And God blessed them, and God said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it: and have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over every living thing that moveth upon the earth.

Beloved, have you seen why I am excited. First God made in His image, secondly He blessed me and thirdly, He give me an injunction to have dominion. Do still remember what our yearly theme is?

I want remind us that so many things might dragging your authority as a child of God. This message is coming to tell you that in blessing God has pronounce His blessings on upon your life. He has also given you dominion over that depleting situation that is you are facing now, that health challenge that is question the finished work of Calvary.

Jesus fulfilled what was spoken of Him by prophet Isaiah himself took our infirmities, and bare our sicknesses. Right now can you cast that burden upon Him in faith never to take it back again (Ps 55:22). Remember what we taught in faith dominion month-

Have God kind of faith. For verily I say unto you, That whosoever shall say unto this mountain, Be thou removed, and be thou cast into the sea; and shall not doubt in his heart, but shall believe that those things which he saith shall come to pass; he shall have whatsoever he saith. 24 Therefore I say unto you, What things soever ye desire, when ye pray, believe that ye receive them, and ye shall have them Mark 11:23-24 (KJV).

Everything God said came to pass as you see in Genesis chapter 1. Having been made in the image of God and having His likeness all what we desire and confess should have naturally come to pass but man lost this position to Satan having compromise the dominion injunction of God to man. This is another opportunity heaven is placing on you to take back what has been given from the beginning. Are you ready and willing to secure your destiny again in the blood of Jesus?

Beloved, there is so much in the blood of Jesus. Tap into it and uphold your testimonies in Jesus Name. There is power in the blood of Jesus.

Today’s ministration is coming your way to reassure you of God original plan concerning you. my prayer is that whatever be it You are going through that lift the Name of Jesus above it and made whole. However, the second ministration is telling us the danger that lies if we fail to live a righteous life and dally in sin else the fallen nature we inherited from our first parents will continue to be the order of the day (I reject that for using Jesus name).

Let’s get going:

“I will rejoice over them to do them good.” Jeremiah 32:41

How heart-cheering to the believer is the delight which God has in His saints! We cannot see any reason in ourselves why the Lord should take pleasure in us; we cannot take delight in ourselves, for we often have to groan, being burdened; conscious of our sinfulness, and deploring our unfaithfulness; and we fear that God’s people cannot take much delight in us, for they must perceive so much of our imperfections and our follies, that they may rather lament our infirmities than admire our graces.

But we love to dwell upon this transcendent truth, this glorious mystery: that as the bridegroom rejoiceth over the bride, so does the Lord rejoice over us. We do not read anywhere that God delighteth in the cloud-capped mountains, or the sparkling stars, but we do read that He delighteth in the habitable parts of the earth, and that His delights are with the sons of men.

We do not find it written that even angels give His soul delight; nor doth He say, concerning cherubim and seraphim, “Thou shalt be called Hephzibah, for the Lord delighteth in thee”; but He does say all that to poor fallen creatures like ourselves, debased and depraved by sin, but saved, exalted, and glorified by His grace.

In what strong language He expresses His delight in His people! Who could have conceived of the eternal One as bursting forth into a song? Yet it is written, “He will rejoice over thee with joy, He will rest in His love, He will joy over thee with singing.” As He looked upon the world He had made, He said, “It is very good”; but when He beheld those who are the purchase of Jesus’ blood, His own chosen ones, it seemed as if the great heart of the Infinite could restrain itself no longer, but overflowed in divine exclamations of joy.

 Should not we utter our grateful response to such a marvellous declaration of His love, and sing, “I will rejoice in the Lord, I will joy in the God of my salvation?”

And as we are making that declaration may cease to dally in sin…… let continue reading

When We Dally In Sin, Our Bond Of Intimacy With Christ Is Broken

 

A spiritual dullness and hardness of heart sets in. We begin to wander from God by growing indifferent to Him. We find our heart easily seduced by other affections. (Hebrews 3:13; 5:11; James 5:19; Proverbs 4:23; 2 Corinthians 11:3)

When King David broke that bond of intimacy with God through his liaison with Bathsheba, rationalization and self-deception became a way of life. (Psalm 32)

In David’s prayer of repentance, he implored God for three attitudes of the heart (Psalm 51),

Renew a steadfast spirit within me.” (Verse 10) – That is, he prayed that his broken relationship with God would be repaired. Rebuilt. He asked God for a spirit of stability, faithfulness, and firmness as he sought to be reestablished in his walk.

Grant me a willing spirit.” (Verse 12) – By this request, David was appealing to God to uphold, or sustain him in his spirit. He may also have been asking God for a renewed spirit of nobility.

You may recall that David, after 15 years of eluding King Saul’s murderous pursuits, was crowned King of Israel. Once his position as monarch was established, he inquired if there were any good he could do for Saul’s family. Aids brought Saul’s crippled son Mephibosheth to his attention. And in response, David offered to provide for his material needs which included sitting regularly at his table. Now, that is a noble spirit! (2 Samuel 9)

The sacrifices of God are a broken spirit.” (Verse 17) – Here, David acknowledged the importance of a crushed spirit in repentance. When we began to grasp the cost Jesus paid for our redemption, we will find no place for a cavilier or “oops” attitude in our confession. Rather, we will be crushed over our sin.

Recently, I had lunch with a Christian businessman who had cheated clients in several financial transactions. I had been told that he had “repented” of his actions. Yet, while chatting over lunch, he chided me for not responding to him during his backslidden state in a manner that was to his liking. Upon reflection of our meeting together, it seemed to me the element of “brokenness” was missing from his so-called “repentance.”

Perhaps today, our prayer could be, “Lord, grant me a steadfast, willing and broken spirit.

Beloved, Psalms 51 is among the popular psalms if not the most. But this came about as result of brokenness that is lacking in the generation today. God is not unkind and He promised to forgive our trespasses if we ask of Him. David is man after God’s heart as declared by God Himself. As result God made a promise to him that his seed will continue to seat on the throne of which Jesus is. His meekness exemplified after thousands of years in the life Jesus.

We need to ask Parents, what kind of DNA are passing on to your children and generation yet unborn. You need find out. Beloved, stay far from sins and live a life of dominion in Jesus Name.

Honour God by living right and bring up your children in the way of the Lord. Shun arrogance in your life and rebuke your child when you see a trace of it in their behavior. May God grant you grace in Jesus Name and may through glory uplift the Name of Jesus by your life style in Jesus Name.

I decree God’s blessings in your life and endeavours and everything that pertained to you in Jesus Name. Go in that strengthen that “God is rejoicing over you”

Remain blessed in the Lord.
