You are Worthy to be praise My Redeemer the Holy One of Israel, let Your Name ring all through the nations far and wide that those who knew You not will come to know You and praise You forever more. The heathen will come to You from the risen of what you will do in the lives of Your children. The kingdom of God is not in word but in power of the Most High God (Rev 12:11). Let Your Name be praise for ever more.
Blessed Redeemer, have Your way today in the lives of Your children, strengthen us from the inner mind (Phil 4:13). Let Your Glory come down and fill this place. O! that Your Glory will fill us to overflowing, that healings will begin in the lives of Your children. Let everyone reading this devotion today experience Your Presence in their lives and situations in the Name of Jesus.
Spirit of the Living God fall afresh on us. Come with Your sweet aroma and turn every bitterness in our lives to sweetness in the Name of Jesus. Whatever that represent bitterness in the lives of children, Holy Spirit deal with it until it surrenders to You. Make us indeed an aroma of Christ in the Name of Jesus (2 Cor 2:15; Lev 2:9; Eph 5:2). May our lives be pleasing unto You alone Who is Worthy of our praise.
Beloved, the Spirit of God is here presence and I prophesy into your lives that whatever represent a stumbling block in your worship of God be removed this day in the Name of Jesus. Because it has defiled the Name and the glory of God upon your life, let the Hand of the Almighty destroyed it this day in the Name of Jesus.
I stand to testify of the healing of a “Shift Disc” I had at my early adult stage while cleaning the house. As I was about to lift a heavy object, I had a crack at my waist region. The pain was excruciating and unbearable. I visited hospitals and undergo pelvic scan but the source of the pain was not discovered. I was given pain killer just to help me whenever the pains come on.
During one of the revival held in my church, I told God that the only thing I want to take away from this meeting is the healing of the pains down my waist region for I did not know the medical name by then. Beloved, I have finished all the prayer points I can remember to pray and I started praising God and here came the gentle touch in form of a push from my left shoulder or side and I heard a sound down my waist region and that was it.
O! I felt strengthen up, the pains gone. I cannot contain my unlimited joy to myself, it was a glorious day. The undefiled philistines of my life left me. It was some weeks after while watching a program on the television that a doctor was explaining the symptoms of a shift disc that I got to know what I went through for seven years. The power and the mighty Hand of God saved me.
Beloved, I was made whole and from that day forward, I was able to enjoyed driving my car which was a source of agony especially when I encounter a traffic jam. I was able to breastfed my other two children unlike before, when throw pillows will be pile up my back to support me. The enemy stole the joy of my motherhood except to the saving grace of God.
So today be ready for your miracles, it is for a take, just ask the Lord and He will supply you the smoothest stones that will bring down your goliath this day in the Name of Jesus:
David said to the Philistine, “You come against me with a dagger, spear, and sword, but I come against you in the name of the Lord of Hosts, the God of Israel’s armies—you have defied Him. Today, the Lord will hand you over to me.”—1 Samuel 17:45–46a
David was certainly an optimist! Regardless of his circumstances, David could always see God’s activity! A pessimist focuses on the problems, concentrating on the reasons why something cannot be done. The optimist sees those same problems, but he sees them from the perspective of God’s presence.
David was just a young boy when he faced Goliath, an intimidating veteran warrior who frightened even the bravest Israelite soldier. As he prepared for battle, David saw that Goliath was a giant. He heard his boastful taunts. He could not fail to notice his enemy’s weapons: a sword, a shield, and a javelin. David did not barge into the battle unprepared for a fight. He armed himself with five smooth stones. David was prepared for God to grant him victory with the first stone he hurled at the giant or the fifth. David was ready to accept God’s victory, whether it came easily or with much effort.
Optimists do not ignore the difficulties, they are keenly aware of them. But the knowledge of God’s presence prevents them from becoming discouraged or giving up. It is impossible to stand in the presence of God and be a pessimist!
The account of David and Goliath vividly pictures the source of the Christian’s faith—not our own size, strength, or resources, but the power of almighty God. If we focus on our opposition and problems, they will seem gigantic. But as we focus on God, we will see our situation in the proper perspective and be assured that all things are possible with God (Phil. 4:13).
Beloved, whatever be it that is disturbing your life, it takes nothing than God to get out of it. Focus on the Mightiness of God. David chose five stones; yours might be more than that, do not be discourage, keep aiming at your obstacle until you bring it down. Then will you cut off its head and celebrate your victory to the glory of God the father (Rev 2:7). Praise the Lord!
Have you ever found yourself in a situation where there is nothing left other than questioning God? It is not the best option but that’s what the devil wants. Like Job’s wife, he wants you to curse God and die. Then tell me, when you are dead, where will you end up? Hell! Where he will torment you day and night. Do not be deceived, try as much as you can, also ask the Holy Spirit to help you to keep your unspotted in the world (Jas1:27). His grace will be sufficient for you and you will surly triumph in the Name of the Lord Jesus:
Then the Lord answered Job from the whirlwind. He said:
Who is this who obscures [My] counsel with ignorant words?
Get ready to answer Me like a man; when I question you, you will inform Me.—Job 38:1–3
Job was a righteous man who, from a human perspective, did not deserve to suffer. He lived a blameless life and followed God’s laws to the letter. As he was experiencing great tribulation, Job cried out in frustration and questioned why God was allowing him to suffer. God came to Job in the form of a whirlwind with His answer. As soon as God spoke, Job recognized that he should not have challenged God’s wisdom. God turned to Job and asked him several sobering questions: “Where were you when I laid the foundations of the earth? Where were you when I set the oceans in their place? Where were you when I put the constellations of stars in position?” God’s questions humbled Job and reminded him that his own wisdom did not begin to compare with God’s.
When God finished asking His questions, Job replied, “I have uttered what I did not understand, / Things too wonderful for me, which I did not know” (Job 42:3). In a moment of despair and frustration, Job had challenged God’s wisdom. God had firmly reminded Job that He was still sovereign and that this truth was enough for Job. Whether Job ever knew that his life had been the focus of a cosmic struggle is unclear. Perhaps Job never realized that his experience brought glory to God in the face of Satan’s challenge (Job 1:8–12). But Job was satisfied to know that God’s wisdom was flawless.
At times you may not understand why a loving Father would allow you to suffer as you are. You may question the wisdom of God’s direction for your life. Learn from Job. Review the awesome power and wisdom of almighty God (Job 38–41). Have confidence that this same God is directing your path.
Something happened recently, during one of my worship time, I wanted to tell God about it. To pour my heart as it was for me. Immediately, then I heard Him speaking to me, but I gave you and the children life, so why don’t you praise me for that. Whoop, I immediately began to praise Him, the burden was lifted of my spirit. The challenge is still on but God lifted my eyes from the situation on to Himself and I had so much peace even though I am yet to come out of it.
Beloved, whatever be it, lift up your eyes from it and look steadily unto God, He will yet speak and it will be to your favour. He will glorify Himself in that situation in the Name of Jesus. Ask for His grace to abide (Heb 4:16; Rom 8:31; Isa 12:2).
Remain blessed in the Lord.
