Heavenly Father we thank You, we bless Your Name, we exalt You forever and ever. Thank You for the gift of this day. Be Thou magnify in the Name of Jesus. You are excellent, You are Wonderful, You are Great, You are Mighty, receive our Praise, receive all honour, receive adoration, glory be to Your Name forever and ever.

Thank You for yesterday and thank you for yet another mighty thing You will yet do in our life today, for Your Word is new every morning, glory be to alone, Amen!

Beloved, you are welcome to the another destiny changing session, yesterday was good, today will be better in Jesus Name. we established yesterday that sin will hinder the promise of God in any mans life, therefore, we urged us to repent from any known or unknown sins in our lives. Put a road block to any way through which have access to our lives. Repent from all our evil ways and turn to Jesus, Who died that we may live.

Beloved, another eye opener to every child of God is that Jesus died that we may have life and have it abundantly. Always worthy to note is that Jesus came not in His nature as Son of God but He took the nature of man and suffered all that we will suffer. Jesus was hungry at a time that He sent His disciples to go buy food and that same day the city of Samaria was won over to the Lord. (Jn 4:1-42)

Jesus won a whole city of Samaria while He was hungry and needed to eat. He did not hinder His passion to save the unsaved, to heal the disease among them. Even His disciple was wondering if someone brought Him food while they were away.

Beloved, what excuse do you have that is hindering the work of God in Your hand? Don’t forget that Jesus won the whole city of Samaria with an empty stomach.

Another destiny changing revelation worthy of note is that Jesus slept while the storm is ragging. Wow! The Master slept in the middle of a ragging storm(Mk 4:35-41). Beloved what are those things that are taking away sleep from your eyes? Jesus did not lose sleep over it and He was not drowned in it either, rather the Master of the universe rebuked the storms and it obeyed Him and calmed down.

Now by the raising of this revelation, I rebuke every ragging storms in the life of everyone reading this devotional to remain calm in Jesus Name. No more storms in Jesus Name! We are victorious in Jesus Name. We will no longer stay below but we will look up and stay up in Jesus Name. No more below but above only in Jesus Name.

Beloved, Jesus was tempted as were but He did not fall, therefore today let us ask for the grace to stand firm and through all the trials and temptation that might come our way in Jesus Name. Don’t forget “above only,” going forward in Jesus Name.

Let’s discover more:

For since He Himself was tested and has suffered, He is able to help those who are tested.—Hebrews 2:18

You will never face a temptation so strong that God has not made complete provision for you to overcome it. God, out of His love, has done everything necessary for you to be victorious whenever you face temptation. He has clearly revealed His will to you in Scripture so that you will not be confused about the right thing to do. He has placed the Holy Spirit within you to guide you in your decisions and to convict you when you make harmful choices. With every temptation God also provides a way of escape so that you never have to yield to it (1 Cor. 10:13). Everything is in place for you to experience victory over every temptation.

God in His infinite love, however, has done even more to safeguard you from temptation. He has allowed Himself to suffer the full brunt of temptation. The very Son of God humbled Himself, taking on all the limitations of frail human flesh, and was tempted in every way that we are. Jesus knew what it was like to grow tired, to be hungry, to experience the same limitations we have; yet He was without sin. It is to this One that we turn when we are facing temptation.

Ours is not an unsympathetic God who is unconcerned with our struggle to live righteously, but we follow a God who knows how difficult it is to resist sin and withstand temptation. We can approach Christ with confidence, knowing that He understands our plight. He knows how to aid us when we are tempted.

Yes! He truly knows how to help us in hour of our trials and temptations. Therefore take heed let nothing deceive you or hinder you from spreading the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ everyone He give you opportunity to be. Ensure you represent Him well enough to draw all men to Him. Praise the Lord let learn more from below:


But the seed in the good ground—these are the ones who, having heard the word with an honest and good heart, hold on to it and by enduring, bear fruit.—Luke 8:15


At any time, the receptiveness of your heart will determine your response to God’s word (Luke 8:5–18). If your heart is like the trampled ground, hardened by the sin of bitterness and unforgiveness, you will be unable to accept a message from God. Though you hear the words of the message, you will remain unchanged. If your heart is like the shallow soil on top of a rock, you will accept God’s word in your mind, but the truth will not penetrate your heart to make a difference in your actions.

A heart like thorny soil is a life that is distracted by the cares of the world; the pursuit of earthly pleasures prevents God’s word from taking hold and producing righteousness. The heart that is like good soil receives a word from God, applies it, and brings forth fruit in due time. This is the heart that Jesus desires in us, for the fruit will be a Christlike life.

Any time you hear a word from God, whether through Bible reading, prayer, or worship, the way you respond will depend on how you have cultivated your heart (Hos. 10:12). How do you develop a heart that is like good soil? Repent of any bitterness, anger, or unforgiveness that is hardening your heart. Meditate on God’s word until it enters deep into your heart and not just your mind.

When you read or hear a word from God, apply it to your life and let God bring His word into reality in your life (Gal. 6:9). Protect your lifestyle. See that you don’t devote all of your energy to worldly concerns, rather than to pursuing your relationship with God. The condition of your heart will vary, depending on how you cultivate it. If it was receptive to a word from God yesterday, this does not guarantee it is receptive today. Daily prepare your heart for the word God has for you!

Did you just read the last paragraph and the last two sentences, “yesterday grace and anointing is not sufficient for today’s work,” so make sure you have a daily refill and the Lord will bless you and honour you in Jesus Name.

Always remember that in all things our Master Jesus was also tempted but He never gave in rather He triumphed and became the first born from the dead. Won’t you like the same to be your lots.

Remain blessed in the Lord.
