Saul and his men spared Agag’s life and kept the best of the sheep and goats, the cattle, the fat calves, and the lambs—everything, in fact, that appealed to them. They destroyed only what was worthless or of poor quality. 1 Samuel 15:9 NLT

http://bible.com/116/1sa.15.9.NLT
The concept of being smarter and wiser than God is ridiculous but unfortunately the thought of many. Our text reveals Saul displaying this attitude, when he spared Agag, and the things devoted to destruction in the battle against the Amalekites. His argument was useless because it ran contrary to God’s instruction. 
Beloved, you have reasons for every action you take or don’t take. However, whenever your actions run counter to God’s instructions, whenever you spare the Agag and things devoted to destruction in your life, you’re in error, and it pitches you against God. Such rejection of God’s word, means His rejection and results in your rejection too. Examine yourself today and see if there are things devoted to destruction, not meant to live you’re sparing. Destroy them today or they’ll destroy you! 
Grace upon grace!

Then he said to Thomas, “Put your finger here. Look at my hands. Put your hand here in my side. Stop doubting and believe.” John 20:27 ERV

http://bible.com/406/jhn.20.27.ERV
Doubt is an inverted faith, believing in the opposite direction, being uncertain about something, to fear, suspect and distrust something for lack of evidence. These Thomas did because he didn’t v have the Holy Spirit. Our text reveals Jesus’ command to him to shift gears and switch camp, because the blessings of God can only be accessed and activated by faith; which Thomas did. 
Beloved, we usually condemn Thomas’s unbelief but ironically we often do same through selective believing, which places us outside God’s salvation policy.  However, the moment you receive the Holy Spirit and allow Him to lead and control your life, you’ll always believe God and experience every of His abundant provisions and salvation. Let the Holy Spirit lead you today and every doubt will flee and your testimony will charge!

BE DRUNK! 

READ: EPHESIANS 5:15-20 

And don’t get drunk with wine, which leads to reckless actions, but be filled by the Spirit: Ephesians 5:18 HCSB

http://bible.com/72/eph.5.18.HCSB
To be drunk is to be filled with so much alcohol in the blood that the person looses control and facilities are impaired. Our text reveals this is never permitted among Christians as it leads to destructive and reckless actions that ruins life, but gives 
Beloved, if you’re going to have a blissful life and fulfilled destiny, you must please God always. If you’re to please God always, you must be led by the Spirit; if you’re to be led, you must loose control of your life to, be drunk with, the Spirit. If you’re to loose control of your life to, then you must be filled with the Holy Spirit. If you’re to be filled with the Holy Spirit, you must be drunk with Him, which is only possible when you ask this of your Father! Remember, your level of drunkenness with the Holy Spirit, determines your level of excellence before God! 
Grace upon grace!

READ: PSALM 31:9-24 

In panic I cried out, “I am cut off from the Lord !” But you heard my cry for mercy and answered my call for help. Psalms 31:22 NLT

http://bible.com/116/psa.31.22.NLT
Pleas for mercy are made only by the helpless who have faith, to the person  BELIEVED to be able to show him mercy. Our text reveals the unfailing love of God who out of His abundant goodness and mercy saved David even in his seemingly helplessness and hopelessness, because he believed in God and cried out in faith for mercy. 
Beloved, like was established yesterday, mercy is the only basis of obtaining God’s favor and receiving anything from Him. However, mercy can only be activated, and that given by God, only be received by faith. Therefore, no matter how hopelessly bleak your situation is, exercise faith in God’s mercy by crying out to Him now and salvation will definitely be the result. Reason? He has more than enough abundant goodness in store for YOU!
Grace upon grace!

LORD OF MERCY! 

READ: MATTHEW 9:1-8

But so you may know that the Son of Man has authority on earth to forgive sins” — then He told the paralytic, “Get up, pick up your mat, and go home.” Matthew 9:6 HCSB

http://bible.com/72/mat.9.6.HCSB
Mercy is kindness or compassion shown to someone who’s in a very bad and desperate situation or under your power. Our text reveals both the friends of the paralyzed man and Jesus doing this to him, resulting to his deliverance from sin and it’s consequence, sickness. 
Beloved, the mercy of God is always abundant  and available to meet every of your need. Without it, you cannot receive anything from Him, both deliverance from sin and it’s consequences. He bestows and showers mercy on whoever He wants. You must however attract, provoke and tap into this mercy to receive and experience it. Faith is the only point of attraction and means of provoking and tapping into it. Whenever and wherever God sees faith, His mercy is invoked and bestowed. Whenever mercy is invoked, everything changes for the best!

READ:MATTHEW 12: 22-32 

Or how can someone enter a strong man’s house and plunder his goods, unless he first binds the strong man? Then indeed he may plunder his house. Matthew 12:29 ESV

http://bible.com/59/mat.12.29.ESV
A strong man is known primarily for his strength and ability to secure what he has. Our text reveals satan is a strongman and plundering him is practically impossible except he’s overpowered. 
Beloved, all satan the strongman has are legally yours, which he stole from you. Whatever is lacking in your life he stole, thereby denying and depriving you of their benefits. Until you’re bold enough to attack him, you can’t discover he’s been  overpowered, and until you do, you can’t bind him. Until he’s bound, whatever he has is secured, and until they’re in your hands, they remain unprofitable to you! Jesus disarmed and overpowered him. All that remains is only for you to believe this and exercise your authority over satan, then you’ll have back all that’s yours that he stole!

PROMISE WITH AN OATH!

READ: PSALM 110:1-7 

The Lord has made a promise with an oath and will not change his mind: “You are a priest forever— the kind of priest Melchizedek was.” Psalms 110:4 ERV

http://bible.com/406/psa.110.4.ERV
A promise is a firm declaration, pledge or vow to do something. When a promise is mixed with an oath, it doubly guarantees what was promised must definitely be done. Our text reveals the eternally irrevocable priesthood of Jesus in the order of Melchizedek because of God’s promise with an oath. 
Beloved, if Jesus’ priesthood is irrevocable and He’s eternally seated on the Throne, it implies your authority is equally eternally irrevocable as long as you’re in Him. God’s promise with oath, to answer you before you call for help, and to help you before you finish  asking is also eternally irrevocable and dependable. All you need is discover and depend on them no matter what you see, feel or hear, and they’ll surely come to fulfillment!

READ: PSALM 106:32-48

Again and again He rescued them, but they chose to rebel against Him, and they were finally destroyed by their sin. Psalms 106:43 NLT

http://bible.com/116/psa.106.43.NLT
Sin which is rebellion against God and His ways is synonymous with disgrace and destruction. Grace window is the period when sin can be forgiven. Our text reveals God employed every resource at His disposal to deliver and save Israel from the disgrace and destruction of sin during their grace window. Unfortunately, they kept turning against Him and doing the evil they wanted instead of obeying Him, until they were destroyed as a nation. 
Beloved, like Israel, the Lord will exhaust every avenue and resource to rescue you from the disgrace and destruction of sin. However, if you continue in your rebellion, He’ll be forced to give up on and give you over to the destructive hands of sin, when your grace window expires. Now is your day of salvation, repent and return to the Lord and experience His deliverance and salvation before its too late! 
Grace upon grace!

STAYING AFLOAT! 

READ: MATTHEW 14:22-32 

But while Peter was walking on the water, he saw the wind and the waves. He was afraid and began sinking into the water. He shouted, “Lord, save me!” Matthew 14:30 ERV

http://bible.com/406/mat.14.30.ERV
Keeping afloat is the ability of not sinking even when you’re supposed to, operating above the norm and in a different dimension. Our text reveals Peter operating above the norm, in the realm of faith, hence he kept afloat. Unfortunately he flunked and lost his faith and the new dimension when he lost focus on Jesus and ceased depending on Him and His Word. 
Beloved, operating above the norm, walking on the storms amidst the raging waves and not sinking, keeping afloat, is the common and normal everyday life God designed for you. If you never loose focus of Jesus, depend on His Word and never see your environment, the wind and storms, you’ll always keep afloat. If you don’t focus on your environment, you’ll never loose your faith; and if you don’t loose your faith, you’ll always keep afloat. In other words you’ll know no impossibility, as you’ll walk on all storms! 
Grace upon grace!

THE SAME WAY! 

READ: ACTS 1:1-11 

They said, “Men from Galilee, why are you standing here looking into the sky? You saw Jesus carried away from you into heaven. He will come back in the same way you saw Him go.” Acts 1:11 ERV

http://bible.com/406/act.1.11.ERV
Same way means no difference or distinction in occurrence and sequence. Our text reveals the coming of Jesus Christ to restore the Kingdom to Israel, will be exactly in the same way as His ascension, publicly and suddenly but glorious. 
Beloved, His ascension, enthroned you in heaven, far above the angels, principalities and powers as well as made everything subject to you. As a regent, you’re clothed with royalty and authority, which must be exercised through your words and the Holy Spirit is the seal. This, you must jealously guard with great caution, to avoid being caught unawares, since His return is going to be in the same way, suddenly and openly. 
Grace upon grace!
