Don’t let sexual sin, perversion of any kind, or greed even be mentioned among you. This is not appropriate behavior for God’s holy people. It’s not right that dirty stories, foolish talk, or obscene jokes should be mentioned among you either. Instead, give thanks ⌊to God⌋. Ephesians 5:3‭-‬4 GW

http://bible.com/70/eph.5.3-4.GW

 

Perversion is the  process of improperly changing something that is good. Our text reveals sexual perversion, greed obscene jokes, dirty stories and foolish talks are categorized together. 
Beloved, the contemporary Church has witnessed all forms of sexual perversions and immorality more than any other. It has the highest level of greed, obscenity, dirty jokes and foolish talks ever. They’ve become entrenched in us to the point of almost becoming a norm. Our pastors bring them to the altar and we take pleasure in them. It’s very difficult these days to distinguish a believer and an unbeliever from their speeches and actions, a club and a church from their activities. Greed has driven many families into trauma through lotto, lotteries, pools betting, MMM and the likes. These are inappropriate! Let’s be filled with and led by the Holy Spirit and we’ll stay pure and not perverted. 
Grace upon grace!

When the dew fell upon the camp in the night, the manna fell with it. Numbers 11:9 ESV

http://bible.com/59/num.11.9.ESV
Manna was the angelic food God fed the Israelites on their way to the Promised Land. Our text reveals they didn’t labor or struggle for it, but it came fresh every morning with the dew.  
Beloved, God never ceases to supply all your needs. He always use a known channel to provide the unknown. As long as the dew falls, the manna will fall; as long as the manna falls, they just have to wake up every morning and step out in faith to gather it and their needs will be met. Unless they step out, they won’t enjoy it. Every of your need is supplied daily by God, but you have to step out into your day by faith in His Word to receive it. Until you do, you’ll still be hungry whereas you have manna to feed on. Step out in faith to gather the fallen manna and end your hunger today!

But love your enemies, and do good, and lend, expecting nothing in return, and your reward will be great, and you will be sons of the Most High, for he is kind to the ungrateful and the evil.  Be merciful, even as your Father is merciful. Luke 6:35‭-‬36 ESV

http://bible.com/59/luk.6.35-36.ESV
A Canon is an acceptable measuring rule or standard, which falling short is an error and sinful. Our text reveals the canon for dealing with our enemies. 
Beloved, hatred, destruction and retaliation naturally should be the attitude to an enemy, because he’s the worst person in your life, who always plan and work against you. Amazingly, Jesus sets the opposite, love manifested in mercy and kindness as the canon. Your attitude to your enemies is a proof of the depth of your relationship with God. Is it below, up to, or above the canon? Do you really love your enemies? Remember, you never plan or pray for the destruction of whoever you love!

The Lord redeems the life of His servants; none of those who take refuge in Him will be condemned. Psalms 34:22 ESV

http://bible.com/59/psa.34.22.ESV
The guilty is whoever that has been judged and condemned. Normally what follows such is penalty and punishment. Until condemned, there’s no penalty. Our text reveals immunity to condemnation as the inheritance of God’s servants who take refuge in Him. 
Beloved, immunity to condemnation means although crime was committed, but the penalty and punishment for it has been fully paid and served in Christ, this is the inheritance of His servants who take refuge in Him. If your penalty Has been fully paid and punishment served, no demon can afflict, torment or deny you of inheritance, so long as you’re His servant and do take refuge in Him. You can be His servant but refuse to take refuge in Him, therefore you’ll stand guilty and condemned. Taking refuge in Him, means accepting and believing what He said and did, and living it out no matter what seeming contradictions you feel or see!

But David learned of Saul’s plan and told Abiathar the priest to bring the ephod and ask the Lord what he should do. 1 Samuel 23:9 NLT

http://bible.com/116/1sa.23.9.NLT
Confusion is a natural phenomenon of living and a proof of the limitations of humanity. Without it there won’t be errors, therefore prosperity is guaranteed.  Our text reveals one of the confusions of David and how he dealt with it, which guaranteed his prosperity. 
Beloved, God not being unaware of the grave danger of confusion,  provided channels of overcoming and soaring through it to prosperity. Your intimate relationship with Him and His Word guarantees hearing His voice, as well as obedience. Like David, your “Priest” should be invited whenever you’re unable to hear Him. This guarantees your continued prosperity!

The Lord your God will make you successful in everything you do. You will have many children. Your cattle will have many calves. Your fields will produce good crops. He will again be happy with you, just as he was with your ancestors. Deuteronomy 30:9 ICB

http://bible.com/1359/deu.30.9.ICB
All-round and embracive success/prosperity was and still is, God’s desire and design for His children. Our text reveals success in everything–  relationship with Him, marriage, childbirth, livestock, crops, career and health are imbedded in this package. 
Beloved, like Adam in the Eden, amazingly you don’t have to struggle to succeed and prosper in any area of your life, because it’s the Lord your God that’ll prosper you. Your prosperity is unconnected with your geographic location and situation. It’s only yardstick is your position in Christ, translated by and demonstrated with your diligent obedient faith. Even if you’ve strayed and have been experiencing near success syndrome, God wants to end that cycle and change the story instantly, but you must do what He tells you to do!

For freedom Christ has set us free; stand firm therefore, and do not submit again to a yoke of slavery. Galatians 5:1 ESV

http://bible.com/59/gal.5.1.ESV
The absence of coercion or constraint in choice or action is freedom. Usually, it’s never lost without consent, except when overpowered. Our text reveals freedom as an inheritance of the believer in Christ, which must be jealously guarded and never relinquished. 
Beloved, your position in Christ gave you the causative power that produces resultant effects. Since you cannot be overpowered, therefore loosing your freedom is only by choice. Until your freedom is directly or indirectly lost, you cannot become a slave to sin, sickness, sorrow or suffering. Until you’re a slave, you can have whatever you want. Remember, your freedom can only be kept, experienced and enjoyed by faith working through love, which keeps you in obedience to Christ!

God has spoken once. I have heard it ⌊said⌋ twice: “Power belongs to God. Psalms 62:11 GW

http://bible.com/70/psa.62.11.GW
Power is the ability or right to act or produce an effect, and control people or things. Our text reveals this ability is primarily God’s. This was repeated when Jesus declared “all power in heaven and on earth has been given to me”. 
Beloved, everything that happens is the effect of a cause, therefore whoever has power has control of causes, and it’s consequent effects. When the Psalmist said: God spoke once, I heard it twice, he meant, whatever God says He backs with undeniable proofs, hence He’s undeniably in charge. If you want to control all things around you, definitely you need power which is only available in the Owner. Through obedient faith in Jesus your authority can be demonstrated!

Cast your burden on the Lord , and he will sustain you; he will never permit the righteous to be moved. Psalms 55:22 ESV

http://bible.com/59/psa.55.22.ESV
A burden is any difficult duty, responsibility or load that is heavy, oppressive or worrisome. Burdens crushes and destroys whatever it overcomes. Our text reveals the best way of dealing with burdens, casting, throwing them off with reckless abandon, far away, upon the Lord. 
Beloved, all humanity naturally have burdens, the difference however is what each does with them. Giving unmet desires and dreams to the Lord with reckless abandon is the only hope and guarantee of your meeting them and survival, because it makes you obedient and righteous.  Whatever you give up, you never worry about, whatever you never worry about is powerless over you. Once your burdens are truly given to the Lord, it may delay, but victory is guaranteed!

For the Lord God is a sun and shield; the Lord bestows favor and honor. No good thing does he withhold from those who walk uprightly. Psalms 84:11 ESV

http://bible.com/59/psa.84.11.ESV

The sun is a channel of goodness, that lavishly provides light, power and protection essential for living, but one must be under its rays to experience them. Our text reveals the Lord as the source of all goodness, favor, honor and protection which all humanity cannot do without. 

Beloved, every good thing you need, the favor and glory, the guidance to walk without stumbling into sin, protection from every assault of the enemy, fulfillment of your desires and dreams, are freely provided in the Lord, there’s no holding back. But you must live with integrity, innocently, and obediently in His paths to experience them. Glory to God, all these conditions are fulfilled and activated by faith in Jesus, hence those who recklessly abandon themselves to God have all their needs lavishly met by Him! 

Grace upon grace!
