Jesus said to them, “They don’t need to go away. You give them something to eat.” Matthew 14:16 GW

Giving is the process of putting something into the possession of another, for the person’s use. Our text reveals it’s blessing.

Beloved, sacrificially loosing/reducing what you have to increase that of others and meet their need, looks foolish, because every reduction diminishes possession and diminished possession leads to increased need and reduced satisfaction. However Jesus both teaches and proves giving is great gain because its the only path to increased possession. Giving isn’t measured before God by quantity but quality, degree of sacrifice and desire to serve. Giving that brings great gain is giving to God to meet others needs. The disciples experienced an astronomical multiplication and increase because they abandoned themselves and their needs to give to God to meet the need of others. Same can be your portion!

PRAYER: Lord God, may I always understand sacrificially giving to You is the only way of increase and multiplication and never shy away from giving. As I give myself and all I’ve to You to first meet the needs of others, I decree and declare that I shall never be in need but always in abundance in Jesus name Amen.

I didn’t speak my message with persuasive intellectual arguments. I spoke my message with a show of spiritual power so that your faith would not be based on human wisdom but on God’s power. 1 Corinthians 2:4-5 GW

A foundation is the base, the ground, or principle that provides support for something. Our text reveals the basis of faith.

Beloved, a foundation is very important because it determines the stability and durability of whatever is built on it, as well as defines authenticity, originality and performance. Faith’s foundation is a belief on the demonstration of the awesome power of God. Without this demonstration, there’s absolutely nothing to believe. The demonstration of power is based on faith in the personality of Jesus Christ who’s the image of God. Wherever and whenever there’s a demonstration of the power of God, there’s always faith in Jesus Christ. Whoever believes in Jesus and what the Scriptures say about Him, has right faith and whoever has right faith experiences the awesome power of God in his life!

PRAYER: Heavenly Father, help me always present Christ through the demonstration of power that others may believe in Him. Today and always as I believe in Jesus Christ, may the demonstration of God’s power, settle every struggle in my life in Jesus name. Amen.

O Lord, your word is established in heaven forever. Your faithfulness endures throughout every generation. Psalm 119:89,90 GW

To settled is to become conclusively and permanently fixed, resolved or established. Our text reveals the Word as such and doing same.

Beloved, the world and everything in it were created by the Word, it also brings to rest and resolution whatever issue, situation or turbulence that it meets. That the Word is established and settled means it’s irreversible, irrevocable, unchangeable and undelayable. Before any issue arises, there’s a Word already spoken by the Lord to address and settle it. It takes a discovery and believing of that Word to experience the settlement it brings. Until discovered and believed, the settlement the Word brings may seem delayed and unfulfilled. Discover and believe the Word for your situation today and experience the conclusive and undelayable settlement it carries!

Grace upon grace!

PRAYER: Heavenly Father, teach me to love your Word, meditate on it and dwell in Your presence day and night, so I may discover and believe the Word for whatever situation I may find myself in. Lord, today and always, as I believe Your Word, I experience the settlement it brings without delay in Jesus name. Amen.

God settles the solitary in a home; he leads out the prisoners to prosperity, but the rebellious dwell in a parched land. Psalms 68:6 ESV

The God of salvation saves from danger, difficulty, evil, pain, sin and sorrow. Our text reveals His acts.

Beloved, when the God of salvation springs into action, His adversaries run from Him, enemies scatter, circumstances and situations are turned around for the best, impossibilities take place, stories are instantly changed, lost destinies are restored and new chapters are written. The barren, deserted, forgotten, hopelessly lonely, solitary and outcast are settled in their own families and homes. Prisoners are freed, given joy and prosperity, but those sinful rebels who fight against Him, through their unbelief, are left in a sun scorched, desolate, empty, parched, and unproductive desert land. The God of salvation only springs to action at the appointed time, when He detects faith. Until faith is detected, He’ll absolutely do nothing. Now is your appointed time!

Grace upon grace!

PRAYER: Lord God, whatever I’m passing through right now, no matter how hopeless it seem, may I always trust You and never in any way and time rebel against You. Because Your Word says, now is the time of salvation, therefore I receive your salvation and settlement as well as my promotion from every form of prison to prosperity in Jesus name Amen.

“How kind the Lord is!” she exclaimed. “He has taken away my disgrace of having no children.” Luke 1:25 NLT

Shame is the product of disgrace, dishonor, disrepute and ignominy. Our text reveals the effect of encounter with the Lord on shame.

Beloved, shame is an unfortunate situation that came into being through the Fall, therefore everyone associated and connected in anyway with the Fall cannot escape it. Shame manifests in the various dimensions of the consequences of the Fall like barrenness, sickness, poverty, demon possession and even death. Only Jesus can take away shame and it’s consequences. Whoever believes Him or His messenger, receives an encounter with Him and whoever receives an encounter with Him gets saved from shame. It doesn’t matter how long your shame have lasted, or what verdict men gave you, Jesus is here right now for you, believe His Word and be saved from shame!

Grace upon grace!

PRAYER: Dear Lord, I believe Your Word addressing my shameful situations no matter how hopeless it seems. Today and always I’m saved from all shame and transferred into elevation and exaltation in Jesus name Amen.

But when the Pharisees saw it, they said to him, “Look, your disciples are doing what is not lawful to do on the Sabbath.” Matthew 12:2 ESV

Unlawful things are things that are not right, against the law, not permitted and is prohibited. Our text reveals how to them.

Beloved, unlawful things break the law, disregard the rule and should be avoided at all cost. Every law has interpretation, and the best interpretation always comes from the maker. No action is unlawful until interpreted and interpretation stems from understanding. Since every law has a lacuna, therefore understanding and discovering this makes better interpretation possible. The denominator for a lawful and unlawful act in God’s sight is therefore intent. Since only God knows intent, men can condemn and crucify you, while God exonerates and justifies you. Whatever you do or say, watch your intent!

PRAYER: Lord God, may my intents and actions be always pure, acceptable and pleasing to You that I may stand justified in your sight always in Jesus name Amen.

…and a letter to Asaph, the keeper of the king’s forest, that he may give me timber to make beams for the gates of the fortress of the temple, and for the wall of the city, and for the house that I shall occupy.” And the king granted me what I asked, for the good hand of my God was upon me. Nehemiah 2:8 ESV

God’s good hand is His gracious guiding presence. Our text reveals it’s effects.

Beloved God’s good hand which brings His irresistible favor rests only on those whose lives are pleasing to Him. No life can be pleasing to God apart from the lives of those who believe His Word and obey it. The Word of the Lord is His counsel, desire and mind. It’s usually unpleasant and contrary to human desires. Believing it is believing the unnatural and resigning ones faith in God’s hand, which confers a supernatural status, which is a prevailing and triumphing status on an individual. It doesn’t matter the number of persons that are against you, or forces you’re contending with you, or insurmountable problems facing you. Once the good hand of the Lord that brings His favor is on you, you’ll always excel beyond measures!

PRAYER: Dear Lord, make me always trust and obey Your Words that Your good and favorable hands will always rest on me to make me irresistible and insurmountable in Jesus name Amen.

I waited patiently for the Lord ; he inclined to me and heard my cry. Psalms 40:1 ESV

Patience is the ability and capacity of remaining calm without complaint while confidently and trustingly waiting on the Lord to act. Our text reveals it’s result.

Beloved, patience enables and empowers to wait for the Lord to act after being consulted and contacted. Life is full of annoying, challenging and provocative adversities, difficulties and opposing circumstances that often lead to making hasty and impetuous decisions. These decisions not only leave us susceptible to destruction, but actually do make God’s salvation to elude us and bring destruction. Divine salvation in or from every circumstance and situation in life, though available, can only be experienced by activation, and it’s activation is impossible without patience. Patience is impossible without faith and faith is impossible without the Word.

Grace upon grace!

PRAYER: Lord Jesus, thank You for making provision for my salvation in whatever circumstance or situation I found myself in. Today and always, I refuse to allow circumstances influence my action, but choose to sow patience rather than impatience thereby activate Your salvation instead of destruction in Jesus name. Amen.

The one who offers thanksgiving as his sacrifice glorifies me; to one who orders his way rightly I will show the salvation of God!” Psalms 50:23 ESV

Salvation is the state of being helped and saved from danger, difficulty, evil, pain, sin and sorrow by and experiencing help from God. Our text reveals it can be activated.

Beloved, God’s salvation cannot be earned but has been freely provided, however must be activated to be experienced. When promises made to God are fulfilled, He’s given sacrifices and thanks offering, He’s called upon when trouble comes, His teachings aren’t hated, ignored or rejected but believed and obeyed, it proves faith in His personality and power, then His salvation is activated. Whatever unwanted, uncomfortable and unpleasant circumstance, situation or position you are or will be in, it doesn’t matter how long it’s been or terribly hopeless it’s seems, you’re coming out of and being saved from it right now as you believe and obey what the Lord has spoken about it.

PRAYER: Faithful Father, I believe Your declarations and judgments about me, my situations and circumstances. Right now, I cling to Your Word and activate, receive and experience Your promised salvation, with manifestations in Jesus name Amen.

But Zerubbabel, Jeshua, and the other family leaders of Israel answered, “No, you people cannot help us build a temple for our God. Only we can build the Temple for the Lord. He is the God of Israel. This is what King Cyrus of Persia commanded us to do.” Ezra 4:3 ERV

Satanic strategies are plans targeted at distorting, deceiving, distracting, disarming and destroying you. Our text reveals how to effectively deal with them.

Beloved, everything the devil does, whether offering you an assistance, a gift or robbing you, has your despoiling and destruction as its goal. However he never openly sets out to do this, but always very subtly and secretly, lures you to your ruin. Whatever and whoever gets you to doubt and disobey God is a satanic strategy. When the ploy of outright disobedience fails, hindrance and stoppage through open threat and intimidation is activated. Refusal of satanic partnership and outright resistance to him are the only way out. These are only possible through an indepth knowledge and understanding of the word. Your degree of knowledge of the word equals your degree of victory.

Grace upon grace!

PRAYER: Heavenly Father, keep me not only sensitive to every satanic strategy, but victorious over them so I’ll always please You, never be dispossessed in any form in Jesus name Amen.
