The Renewed Mind

Click here for the Audio Version: https://bit.ly/aud2559
1 Corinthians 2:9-10 (NKJV) But as it is written: "Eye has not seen, nor ear heard, Nor have entered into the heart of man The things which God has prepared for those who love Him."
But God has revealed them to us through His Spirit. For the Spirit searches all things, yes, the deep things of God.

When Laide was going through the challenges she faced as a student on campus, she almost lost all hope and gave up. But what kept her going was the word of God and the Holy Spirit.
One way the Holy Spirit comforts us is by revealing things to us that will comfort us. The things He reveals to us are the basis of our hope and tokens of God’s love for us. They do not only span things in time, but they cover things in eternity that God has purposed for us.

An unrenewed mind does not have the ability to decode and understand the things revealed to his spirit by the Spirit of God. Those who are spiritually mature are those whose minds have been renewed to conform to the mind of Christ. The fact that you are born again does not mean you have a renewed inner man. The new man you have put on needs renewal through the knowledge of the word (see Col 3:9-10).

Go into today knowing that spiritual maturity is through the renewal of your mind by the word of God and by prayer. It is only a renewed mind that can understand the things the spirit reveals--things that the natural human mind cannot comprehend.
prayer: Ask the Lord to help you always walk in the newness of the mind.
—Abraham Damilola Arigi

Finding Grace

 

Click here for the Audio Version: https://bit.ly/aud2558

Hebrews 4:16 (NET) Therefore let us confidently approach the throne of grace to receive mercy and find grace whenever we need help.

Yomi found that unlike him, Gbenga walked in the divine nature and enjoyed the benefits of the divine life; the promises of God found fruition in his life. Yomi wondered why that wasn't the case with him. "But I quote scriptures like Gbenga, why don't they work in my life as they do in Gbenga's life?". After living with Gbenga for some time, Yomi observed that unlike him, Gbenga lived a truly holy life before the Lord. This was the reason why he could appropriate the promises of God so easily.

In today's verse, notice that from the throne of grace, mercy is received but grace is found. In order to receive a thing, we need to simply ask. But in order to find something, we need to seek [for] it. Jesus was the one who said 'ask and you shall receive, seek and you shall find'(Matthew 7:7). In order to walk in God's grace, we need to first receive mercy. Mercy is the reason we have righteousness (right standing) with God, but grace is the reason(empowerment) we can walk in holiness and thus appropriate our privileges as sons of God (See 2 Corinthians 7:1). Holiness is required for God's people to possess their possessions (see Obadiah 1:17).

In order to find grace, you need to search for it with the lamp of God's word. This lamp is oiled by the indwelling Holy Spirit who gives life(understanding) to God's word. Listen and meditate on God's Word until it crystallizes grace in your spirit concerning that area of need.

The way by which we connect with grace is through faith. God has given us great and exceeding promises. As we believe these promises, we are able to walk in them and partake in the divine nature. But this is only possible after we, through grace, have escaped the corruption that is in the world through lust(see 2 Peter 1:4).

Go into today remembering that mercy is received but grace is found. Grace is found using the searchlight of God's word which imparts faith.

Prayer: Father, help me find grace to finish this race victoriously, in Jesus' name. Amen.

In Whom Do You Trust?

Click here for the Audio Version: https://bit.ly/aud2557

Psalms 91:2 (NKJV) ...My God, in Him I will trust.

After Lekan graduated from the University, it took him some time to get a good job. His uncle was the managing director of a big company, and he expected that his uncle would naturally help him secure a good job. But it just didn't happen. After waiting and waiting for his uncle, he decided to turn to God and pray. This was when he realized that concerning getting a good job, his trust was never really in the Lord, but in his uncle. (See Jer 17:5, Psa 146:3).

Whoever you put your trust in and depend on is the one who is your God. The reason why the Lord warns us against serving Mammon (even more than He warns us against serving the devil) is because it is very easy for a person to trust in his money and lean on the strength of mammon. Rich people fall into this trap more than the poor because they, more than other people, know the power of money. That is why the Lord particularly warns His children who are rich in this world not to put their trust in uncertain riches (see 1 Tim 6:17).

The way to trust in God is to acknowledge that all good things come from Him and He uses anyone and anything to help you. This means you now see people and systems as only channels that God uses and never as your source of help. You understand that God is your help, with or without them.

Go into today remembering that it is better to trust in the Lord than in any other. People fail, money fails, but they that trust in the Lord will not be moved (see Psalm 125:1).

Prayer: Ask the Lord to help you trust Him with all your heart.

I Will Say of the Lord

Click here for the Audio Version: https://bit.ly/aud2556
Psalms 91:2 (NKJV)I will say of the Lord, "He is my refuge and my fortress; My God, in Him I will trust."

Dare and Lekan were friends from when they were in elementary school. They both became born again and were both baptized in the Holy Spirit (with the evidence of speaking in tongues) on the same day. Dare would always say great things concerning God and concerning the things that he believed God was going to do for him. He said God was going to make him very great and prosperous in life. Lekan, on the other hand, was most sanctimonious. He didn’t say much about what God could do for him.

As they became older, Dare saw more of the power of God in every area of his life and was very prosperous. He later discovered that the prosperity and greatness he saw in his life were a result of the things he had always said of the Lord.

Today's Bible verse begins with ‘I will say of the Lord’. My question for you today is what are you saying of the Lord? Are you saying He is your provider and source? Are you saying He will keep you holy and present you blameless before God on that day? Are you saying He is your refuge and fortress? Or are you only seeing Him as the one who is displeased with sin?

What you say of the Lord is very important because it is what you say about Him that you will see manifest in your life.

Go into today determining to say definite great things about the Lord that you want to see in your life. As you continue to say these things in your heart and with your mouth, you will see the manifestations.

Prayer: Ask the Lord to help you say the right things.

Inviting God Through Thanksgiving

Click here for the Audio Version: https://bit.ly/aud2555
John 6:11 (NET) Then Jesus took the loaves, and when he had given thanks, he distributed the bread to those who were seated. He then did the same with the fish, as much as they wanted. 

I heard the story of a great servant of God who had a cook that was heavily possessed with unclean spirits. Each time she cooked for him, she would cast a spell on the food. But before he ate his food every time, he would give thanks and the spell would be removed. Unknown to her, the man of God knew all she was doing, but never fired her.

When her day of deliverance came, she was the one who confessed all she had been doing and how she would see her demonic spell leave the food each and every time. His secret was thanksgiving.

Have you noticed that Jesus gave thanks each time he broke bread? Have you noticed that He also gave thanks before he raised Lazarus from the dead? (See John 11:41). One of the easiest ways to usher God into a situation is to give Him thanks. When you acknowledge God by thanking Him, you are inviting His presence into whatever you are thanking Him for.
As you go into today, determine to magnify God in your life by being thankful in all things. This is the easiest way to invite God and see His mighty power at work in your life. Read 1 Thess 5:18 and Psalm 22:3 in KJV.

When we thank God we acknowledge Him for what He has done, when we praise Him, we acknowledge Him for who He is. Remember that the Lord inhabits the Praises of His people(Psalm 22:3). Let the presence of God fill your life this week; let thanking and praises never cease from your heart and mouth this week.

Prayer confession: Henceforth, I will thank the Lord in all situations; I will experience a greater dimension of His power and glory in my life. Amen.

Overcoming Fears


Click Here to Download Devotional Audio ☞ http://bit.ly/audio2243


Psalms 34:4-5 (NET) I sought the Lord’s help and he answered me; he delivered me from all my fears. Those who look to him for help are happy; their faces are not ashamed.

After Funbi's fiance met her parents, they fixed a wedding date and everyone in her family was happy for Funbi because she was now over 35. After some weeks, Funbi realized that the old fear of failure started lurking in her heart again. She went to the Lord in prayer concerning it as she did with her previous fears, but this time, the fear didn't seem to go away. She just had this feeling that her wedding wasn't going to hold.

When Funbi discussed this fear with her discipler, she educated Funbi that seeking the Lord could also involve fasting because fasting helps to humble us and cause the grace of God toward us to be multiplied. Funbi decided to go on a fast the following Saturday. She put off her phone and shut off all engagements for the day. She spent the whole day behind closed doors, reading a faith-building book, praying in the spirit, and praising God for giving her victory over those her fears.


After doing this, she realized that the fear in her heart had faded away. She went on to have a very successful wedding according to schedule. Somehow she knew that if she did not conquer that fear, it would have materialized and her wedding would not have held. She knew this because that was her experience with such fears in the past, they always materialized.


Turning aside to seek the Lord in prayer and fasting is usually more effective when certain fears have refused to leave your heart even after you have prayed about them normally. The problem is that when many believers fast, they do not focus on God and ensure that their hearts are rid of all fear and anxiety, they rather focus on demons and their enemies. But the biggest battleground is in the mind. Through the word of God and prayers, we are to bring into captivity every thought and imagination that is contrary to the revealed will of God (see 2 Corinthians 10:5).


Go into today remembering that fear and anxiety allowed to linger in the heart of a believer is a precursor to defeat.

Prayer: Lord, help me seek you until my fears and anxieties fade away. Help me walk perpetually in the victory of faith, In Jesus' name. Amen.
-Pst Abraham Damilola Arigi

The Manifold Grace Of God

Click here for the Audio Version: https://bit.ly/aud2554

1 Peter 4:10 (KJV) “As every man hath received the gift, even so minister the same one to another, as good stewards of the manifold grace of God".

Duke graduated as the best graduating student in his faculty and won all the academic awards for the year. He set a new record in academic excellence in that faculty. Because of his performance, he was retained in the school, won several scholarships, and in few years, earned several other degrees including three doctorate degrees. Because of his academic excellence, he became really proud. He, however, could not get married because no woman was willing to live with him because of his arrogance. It was at his 45th birthday that he discovered that his academic excellence was simply the product of a manifestation of God's grace. This humbled him so much that he repented from his pride and began to ask God's grace for marriage. He got married few months after this discovery.

The grace of God is many-sided and is manifested in varied forms, however, the purpose is the same; ministry (service) to the body of Christ and to all people by extension.

The grace of God manifested in Bezaleel (Exo. 31:3) and Daniel (Dan.1:17) as wisdom, understanding, knowledge, and skill. It manifested in Solomon as wisdom and power to get wealth (1 Kings 10:23). It manifested in Elijah as [spiritual] power and authority (1 Kings 17:1) and in Deborah as leadership acumen(Judges 5:7), just to list a few.

If you enjoy uncommon strength in an area of life, it is most likely because you have found grace in that area, and if you are week in other areas it is most likely because you are yet to find grace in such areas. If you have found an area of weakness, the appropriate and godly response should be to ask for grace. Keep on asking and seeking until strength is manifested in that area (2 Corinthians 12:9), and if you have found strength, keep a humble disposition (1Peter 5:5).

Go into today remembering that the grace that you have received was given to you for the sake of edifying(building up and embellishing) the body of Christ.

Prayer: pray against pride in your area of strength and ask for grace in your area of weakness(s).
—Dr. Emmanuel James

Promotion Comes From God


Click here for the Audio Version: https://bit.ly/aud2553
Psalms 75:6-7 (NKJV) For exaltation comes neither from the east Nor from the west nor from the south.But God is the Judge: He puts down one, And exalts another.

 

Since Emeka knew he could not do the unrighteous things his colleagues were doing to lobby for the new post everyone wanted, he decided he was not going to be disappointed or sad if he did not get the job.

He was the best at what he did, but at that point, being the best wasn’t all it took to get the job.

As he read the Bible one evening, it occurred to him that he could simply pray and ask God for the promotion. He remembered that promotion does not come from the east nor from the west (your span of achievements) nor from the south (your location or where you come from), but it comes from God. As soon as he finished praying, he knew he was going to get the promotion. The next weeks to come, things played out in his favor and he got the job.

Do you seek to be promoted? Stop trusting in the arm of flesh and in human maneuvers, but trust in God. Remember that promotion comes from God. You can simply ask Him for your promotion. He loves it when we ask Him in faith for the things we want.

If a man gets his own promotion by human maneuvers, it is because a man who God wants to promote is not in the picture.

Go into today knowing that if God promotes you, no one can demote you. If He opens a door, no one can close it (see Rev 3:7). Remember that the greatest exaltation anyone can receive is the one that sets him up for eternal glory with Christ.

Abide Under God's Covering

Click here for the Audio Version: https://bit.ly/aud2552
Psalms 91:1 (NKJV) He who dwells in the secret place of the Most High Shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty.
Dwelling in the secret place of the Most High is a choice we can all make as believers, but unfortunately, it is also a choice we can refuse to make. How do we refuse to make this choice? By not abiding in the Lord but going back to the world. Those in the world are ruled by lust, greed, and pride.

In John 15, the Lord told His disciples who believed in Him to abide in Him and He would abide in them. Those days, I used to wonder what it really meant to abide in the Lord, then I heard a song written by a friend of mine (who used to be a very notorious unbeliever but today is now a pastor and one of the truest believers I know). His song helped me properly understand what it means to abide in the Lord. A part of the song goes thus:

I would settle down, settle down, I'll sit back and relax
I won't run away, anymore, I'll sit back and relax
I'll be faithful unto you, I'll sit back and relax
I'll be faithful unto you, I'll sit back and relax...

You can see the writer say "I won't run away anymore". The question is 'runaway how?' He used to be in the word and had built an 'eco-system' there, most of his friends were in the world. Running away for him meant going back to the world, it meant not being truly faithful to the Lord in all things, It meant living a life of compromises and doing things he knows are wrong for a believer to do.

Abiding in the Lord means staying in Him. Jesus tells us to abide in Him because there is a possibility of not abiding in Him even though we have been grafted into Him(see Rom 11:19-22). There is a possibility to want to go back to the world because of its pleasures and deceitfulness of riches.

Go into today remembering that what it means to dwell in the secret place of the Most High is to abide in the Lord and be faithful to Him. Repent of every unfaithfulness and determine that from today, with the help of the Spirit, you would abide in Him.
Remember that it is those who abide in Him that enjoy His universal protection and covering(read Psalm 91).

Pray: Lord, help me abide in you and be fruitful in every good work.  Amen.

Under The Shadow of the Almighty

Click here for the Audio Version: https://bit.ly/aud2551
Psalms 91:1 (NKJV)He who dwells in the secret place of the Most High Shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty.

After Ladi accepted Christ, she still didn’t fully understand what it meant to dwell in the secret place of the Most High. Because of this, she was still a fearful person.

One day, she had to pass through a street that was known for being very dangerous at night, especially for young ladies. But she didn’t have any other choice but to walk through that street on her way home that night. She saw a group of very bad-looking boys staring at her, and she could hear her heartbeat because of fear, but she simply walked as fast as she could to pass them.

The next time she went for hospital evangelism, she saw a wounded young man who had been in a bike accident. She preached the gospel to him and he accepted Christ. He later told her that he was one of the young men staring at her that night. He said they wanted to steal her bag and harm her, but there was a strange presence that scared and withheld them. He said that was an experience he had not forgotten.

Ladi now understood that she had been dwelling under the shadow of the Almighty.

Those who dwell in the secret place of the Most High abide under the shadow of the Almighty. The way to dwell in the secret place of the Most High is to abide in Christ and let His words abide in you (see John 15:7). This is only possible when you have received Christ as Lord and savior.

Go into today remembering that you are under the shadow of the Almighty if you are in Christ.
