Faithful in Unrighteous Mammon

Luke 16:11 (KJV) If therefore ye have not been faithful in the unrighteous mammon, who will commit to your trust the true riches?

Ekene worked in his boss’s shop as an apprentice. He often added to the price of the goods sold and stole from his boss to make some extra money. He did this throughout his apprenticeship and was never caught. After finishing his apprenticeship, he started his own business, but he never prospered. Frustrated, he sought help from his pastor. By prophecy, his pastor revealed how he had been an unfaithful apprentice and told him what to do if he wanted his situation to change.


Luke 16:12 (KJV): And if ye have not been faithful in that which is another man's, who shall give you that which is your own?

Before God commits true riches to your hands, He will first test your faithfulness with the unrighteous mammon (money). For Ekene, he had to work under a boss. For you, it may involve managing the finances of a small group such as a church, family, or even your personal earnings—examples include tithing, offering, giving to others, and how you spend money. When you are unfaithful with the little at hand, you will not receive the much that is desired.

Luke 16:10 (KJV): He that is faithful in that which is least is faithful also in much: and he that is unjust in the least is unjust also in much.

If you desire the true riches of the kingdom, you must learn to be faithful in the unrighteous mammon (money). Except you are found trustworthy, God will not entrust you with the riches of His kingdom, which includes earthly wealth.

Go into today knowing that God is willing to give you true riches. However, you must forsake all unrighteous ways of seeking money.

Prayer: Lord, help me walk in Your true riches and live above all limitations. Amen.

The Fear of The Lord

Philippians 2:12 (KJV) Wherefore, my beloved, as ye have always obeyed, not as in my presence only, but now much more in my absence, work out your own salvation with fear and trembling.

One of the most painful things is having to deal with believers who have no integrity. Some so-called believers are outright frauds, yet they profess the name of Christ and are even prominent members of large church congregations. Many professing believers now walk unrepentantly in iniquity, claiming they are under grace. What a delusion!

Because of this, the name of our Lord is blasphemed among unbelievers (Romans 2:24). It is becoming harder for people who reason critically to come to the light of Christ because of the filthy shadow cast by lukewarm believers everywhere.

Growing up as a child, I remember that the church in my country was not as wealthy and large as it is today, but it was much more powerful. True conversions, even among the biggest antagonists, were commonplace. The name of the Lord was more revered and honored, even in the media. No comedians dared mention the name of the Lord or make a caricature of His ministers—something that has become too common today.

But things changed along the way, and now everyone feels comfortable in church with unrepentant hearts. The fear of the Lord was skillfully and gradually removed from the Christian creed. Suddenly, believers no longer walked in the fear of the Lord. Foolishness became celebrated in the organized church as politicians known for corruption were given titles in the church. The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom (Proverbs 9:10). To fear the Lord less and less is the beginning of foolishness.

Some argue that believers should not fear the Lord but only have 'reverential awe' because He is our heavenly Father. They claim that today's Bible verse was not properly translated, suggesting we are to work out our salvation with 'reverential awe,' not fear. The problem with this view is that reverential awe does not invoke trembling. But the verse clearly says, "work out your salvation with fear and trembling." Whatever awaits believers who do not obey this command is something that should be terribly feared and dreaded by anyone.

It is time for the fear of God to return to His people everywhere because when God comes to judge the world, judgment will begin at the household of God (1 Peter 4:17). May we not be found wanting. May we not be cast away after laboring in God's house.

Go into today praying with this verse:
1 Corinthians 9:27 (KJV): But I keep under my body, and bring it into subjection: lest that by any means, when I have preached to others, I myself should be a castaway.

Lay Hold On Eternal Life

Hebrews 2:1 (NET): Therefore we must pay closer attention to what we have heard, so that we do not drift away.

Nonye had believed in the Lord since her time on campus, but now it seemed her faith was waning. Years ago, she believed in divine healing, experienced it, and even ministered it to others. However, she was now doubting if she could be healed supernaturally. Determined not to let her faith fade, she decided to "fight the good fight of faith and lay hold on eternal life" (1 Timothy 6:12). She resolved to be more intentional about her spiritual growth.

Nonye took a break and went on a three-day retreat, dedicating her time to prayer and reading faith-building books—the same ones she used to read ten years ago when she was spiritually on fire. During the retreat, her faith was rekindled, and she started walking at a higher level of faith. She became so engrossed in God's Word that she forgot to worry about the disease troubling her. Many days passed, and she realized she was now totally healed.

The kingdom of God allows for a forceful approach, and the determined take it by force (see Matthew 11:12). Often, if believers are not deliberate and intentional about their spiritual growth, they may find their faith waning and themselves being cheated by the devil daily.

Naturally, after we have learned and understood something, we tend to set it aside and move on to the next new thing. However, this is not how the word of faith should be handled. We must pay closer attention to what we have heard before so that it does not slip away (Hebrews 2:1). Every word that has ever become Rhema to you should be your daily bread, not an occasional menu.

Go into today remembering to fight the good fight of faith and lay hold on the realities of your divine (eternal) life daily. Remember that our weapon is the word of God (see Ephesians 6:17).

Prayer: Dear Lord, please help me walk in an increasing measure of Your grace daily. Amen.

Prioritizing God's Word

Hebrews 2:3-4 (KJV) How shall we escape, if we neglect so great salvation; which at the first began to be spoken by the Lord, and was confirmed unto us by them that heard him; God also bearing them witness, both with signs and wonders, and with divers miracles, and gifts of the Holy Ghost, according to his own will?

From when he was a child, Julius knew that there was a call of God upon his life to become a minister of the gospel. After receiving the baptism of the Holy Spirit, certain remarkable spiritual gifts became evident in his life. As he gave himself steadfastly to prayer and fasting, these spiritual gifts grew stronger. Unfortunately, Julius did not devote himself much to the ministry of the Word.

When he felt the time had come to launch into ministry, he started prayer meetings and gathered large crowds because of the spectacular spiritual gifts in his life. The ministry was built on his spiritual gifts and not the Word. Because he had no substantial word to teach the people, he was always under pressure to demonstrate spiritual gifts, even when the Spirit was not moving. As a result, he eventually resorted to gimmicks and tricks to meet the expectations of the insatiable crowd.

Julius missed it in ministry because he failed to realize that signs and wonders, miracles, and gifts of the Spirit are given by God as a confirmation of our witness for Christ. Witnesses for Christ bear the message of the gospel accurately.

Signs and wonders are a confirmation by God of the message of the gospel. The message is the priority, not signs and wonders. Ministers who change this order will inevitably find themselves in the kind of mess that Julius found himself.

Go into today remembering that God gives the manifestation of the supernatural to confirm your witness of Christ. Spiritual gifts are given to confirm the message of the gospel that your life and doctrine preach. Every minister should "Study to shew [himself] approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth." (2 Timothy 2:15).

Prayer: Ask the Lord to help you serve Him accurately. Ask the Lord to help you build on the foundation of Christ and build accurately so that your work will not be burnt away on judgment day (see 1 Corinthians 3:13-15).

"Lord, help me that on that day, I will receive Your commendation, not Your rebuke. Amen."

Joseph's Bones

Broadcast 4088

Watch today's Vidoe: streamglobe.org/vid4088
Genesis 50:24-25 (NET): Then Joseph said to his brothers, “I am about to die. But God will surely come to you and lead you up from this land to the land He swore on oath to give to Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob.” Joseph made the sons of Israel swear an oath. He said, “God will surely come to you. Then you must carry my bones up from this place.”


There is an assurance that God's word must birth in you, an assurance so strong that the reality of His promises becomes more real than anything else. This is God's desire for every believer.

Joseph had attained royalty in Egypt, but he never lost sight of God's promise. He told his brethren, "Surely God will come. God will lead you out of this land, and God will lead you into the land He promised to Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob."

Anyone can follow when physical evidence abounds—the Israelites who perished in the wilderness are proof of that. They ate manna, ate quails, saw the Red Sea part, and walked on dry land in the middle of the sea, yet they never truly believed God.

Not so with Joseph. He basically said to them, "God will do what He said He will do. To show how much I believe that, take my body with you when you leave here."

Make the meditation of God's word of utmost importance. Have a posture of mind that receives God's word as an immutable revelation and not just some divine opinion. Build yourself on your most holy faith. Then you will take God's word as truth.

A man who sees God's word as truth will order his life according to God's word. The voice of God, as spoken by the Word, will be sharp and clear in his heart, even in the midst of the deafening din of this world's counsel.

Are you ordering your life according to God's word, or are you cowering to this world's counsel? Abide in God and let the word of Christ dwell in you richly.

Prayer: Heavenly Father, help me order my life according to Your truth and be fruitful in all things. Amen.

Hebrews 2:5 (KJV) For unto the angels hath he not put in subjection the world to come, whereof we speak.


After Oyemade told his brethren about the threats from the people who wanted him to join their secret cults, they prayed together and agreed that he was to continue with the political race. He was thinking of leaving the race before because he understood that we believers would still reign over this earth when the Lord returns, but when it became clearer that his major opponent was an antichrist liberal whose agenda was to implement certain antichrist liberal policies, he was emboldened to continue in the race. Two months to the election, he was having a prayer walk in his compound at night when someone appeared to him through the back fence wall. Oyemade noticed that the man that appeared to him was surprised that he wasn't afraid but rather spoke in tongues and commanded him to get out of his compound. Apparently, the man came to scare him out of the race, but Oyemade didn't give the man the benefit of even speaking before he exercised authority over him—he vanished in terror.

In spite of the opposition from the kingdom of darkness, Oyemade won the election and was able to stifle the tide of antichrist liberal policies in his city.

The reason Oyemade could win that election against the will of the prince of this world (and his principalities) was because he too was a functional prince in God's eternal kingdom and he used the superior authority of the Kingdom to conquer on the earth. Every true believer is a prince in God's kingdom, but many are not functioning in their capacity because of spiritual ignorance and laziness.

Many believers who get to the high places in this world and become overpowered fail because they do not surround themselves with the right people and the right systems. A believer representing Christ in the high places of this world (media and entertainment, big business, government, politics, etc.) must be as committed to prayer and the Word as an apostle at the forefront of missionary work in hostile places.

Daniel is a good example. He was so committed to prayer (see Daniel 6:10) that even his enemies took notice. David is another good example of a man that succeeded in fulfilling God's purposes in the high places of this world. He too was a man committed to prayer and the Word. He prayed in the evening, morning, and afternoon every day (Psalm 55:17). He prayed and meditated on God's Word at night (Psalm 119:148). He had men of God around him who were not dazzled by his earthly greatness. Nathan could bring a message of stern rebuke from the Lord to King David and he would repent (see 2 Samuel 12:1-14).

Those who would be witnesses for Christ in the high places of this world must realize that they are there for God's kingdom agenda, not for themselves. They must rid themselves of the love of money and always remember that they have the backing of God's eternal government that rules over everything.

Prayer: Lord, give me the strength to stand for you in the high places of this world. Amen.

The Eternal Government Part 1

Hebrews 2:5 (KJV) For unto the angels hath he not put in subjection the world to come, whereof we speak.

Oyemade was quite sure that he had his political game plan perfectly worked out. It was going to be easy for him to get elected as mayor of the city, even though he was a minority. As the election day was getting closer, and it was becoming clearer and clearer that Oyemade's party was going to win the election, Oyemade started getting strange invitations from people he never knew existed. Because the mayoral seat in his city was very important (his city was so strategic and important), everyone was interested in who sat on that seat. Oyemade started getting veiled threats. He started getting invitations to join "powerful" secret societies. One of his closest allies told him that "boss if you don't join them, they won't let you win this election".

The aspiration for such a great political office made it clearer to Oyemade and his brethren that indeed, the systems of this current world are ruled by Satan the prince of this world (see John 14:30, 1 John 5:19, Ephesians 6:12, 2 Corinthians 4:4).

In this current world order, if you go high enough in most systems, you would interface with the devil. He is the ruler of this present world. The only people that can truly contend his authority on this earth are the sons of God: believers in Christ Jesus who are no longer [spiritual] babes but sons. They can contend territorial authority out of the hand of the prince of this world because their Lord has received 'all authority in heaven and on earth' (see Matthew 28:18).

This current world system is under the subjection of angels. The prince of this world (Satan) is an angel (a fallen angel), and so are his principalities that rule territories in this present world. But from today's verse, we see that this will not be the case in the world to come.

One very important component of the gospel message we preach is the second coming of Jesus, the resurrection of the dead, and the coming rule and reign of Christ (with the saints) over the earth, and over all things (see 1 Corinthians 15, 6:1-3, Philippians 3:20, Revelations 21:7).

This current world system is in its last days (see Hebrews 1:1-2, Acts 2:17). The devil knows that his time is short and that all authority has now been given to Jesus who will return and take over the governments of this earth, so he is more desperate than ever. The kingdom of this world will literally become the kingdom of our God and of His Christ, and we [His saints] shall reign on the earth (Revelation 5:10, 11:15, 20:4).

Go into today remembering that the world [order] to come will not be under the subjection of angels but under the subjection of man, ruled by the man Jesus Christ. With this sure expectation in your heart, walk in this present world with the authority of Christ and remember to lay for yourself treasure that will have value in the worlds to come (Matthew 6:19-21).

Prayer: Lord, help me walk in the fullness of your plan for my life. Deliver me from the distractions of this present world that is passing away and help me fulfill your plan for my life. Amen.

What the Gospel Does

Broadcast 4085
Listen to today's audio: streamglobe.org/aud4085
Watch today's Vidoe: streamglobe.org/vid4085
Hebrews 2:3-4 (NKJV) how shall we escape if we neglect so great a salvation, which at the first began to be spoken by the Lord, and was confirmed to us by those who heard Him, 4 God also bearing witness both with signs and wonders, with various miracles, and gifts of the Holy Spirit, according to His own will?

Suzanne had a hard time discerning false prophets from true ones. She observed that some of the false prophets had become very smart by embracing 'holiness' doctrines. But she had a personal encounter with one of such holiness preachers and realized he was as greedy and filthy as the rest. She also realized that most of the false prophets were not interested in winning souls for the Lord, they were only interested in the money.

We can see from today's Bible verses that salvation was first preached by the Lord Jesus Himself, and was confirmed to us by those who heard Him (His disciples who echoed His gospel). In Matthew 9:35 and Luke 8:1, we see that the Lord Jesus went to different towns and villages teaching and preaching the Gospel of the Kingdom. We also see that His disciples did the same. Many wonder what gospel message Jesus and the Apostles preached since Jesus was not yet crucified? Well, Jesus preached the message of salvation. What makes a person receive eternal salvation is believing that Jesus is Lord (the Christ of God, the Messiah). Even before Jesus died on the cross, people were being saved through believing in Him. We see in Luke 19:9 that Jesus said salvation had come to the house of Zacchaeus [because he believed in Him].

Before and after His death and resurrection, believing that Jesus is Lord was the key to salvation. The resurrection was God's token proof that Jesus is Lord. The Jews crucified Him because He said He was the Christ (the Son of God, the King of the Jews). But God raised Him up on the third day as proof that He is indeed the Christ (Lord, Anointed One, the Messiah). The gospel we preach today now includes this vital truth—that God raised Jesus from the dead (see Romans 10:9).

In John 4, we are given a rare peek into the content of the gospel message that Jesus preached while He walked the streets of Israel. We see Jesus preaching to the Samaritan woman, and their conversation headed up to Him revealing to her that He is the Messiah (see John 4:25-26). The woman believed in Him and even invited others to come and see the Christ (see John 4:29).

Whether then, or when the Apostles preached, or today, the gospel message has been about bringing people to receive the Lordship of Christ Jesus. People who receive the gospel live under the Lordship of Christ. That's why they repent of their old ways that do not align with life under Christ's government.

Go into today remembering that God confirms His gospel with signs and wonders, miracles and gifts of the Spirit. The next time you want to discern whether a prophet is false or not, look at the fruits of his ministry (Matthew 7:16). Is he raising people whose allegiance is to Christ (this shows by their lives of submission to the Lordship of Christ) or is he raising people whose true allegiance is to him and to mammon?

Prayer: Heavenly Father, please help me be a true minister of Your salvation. Stretch out Your hand to confirm Your word in my life with signs and wonders, miracles, and gifts of the Spirit. In Jesus' name. Amen.

Love not the world

Broadcast 4084

Watch today's Vidoe: streamglobe.org/vid4084

1 John 2:15-17 (KJV) Love not the world, neither the things that are in the world. If any man love the world, the love of the Father is not in him. For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh, and the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life, is not of the Father, but is of the world.
Ada believed that she loved God, but she realized that she didn't have as robust a relationship with the Lord as she needed to. She had seen her friend Linda pray simple prayers and receive instant answers from the Lord. She saw how Linda had peace in spite of any situation because of her relationship with the Lord. Ada knew that she did not have this. She later realized that even though she claimed to love the Lord, she still loved the world so much. This was the reason it appeared as though she was not known by God.

One of the many advantages of loving God is that you will be known by God (see 1 Corinthians 8:3). Of course, God knows everyone, but what 1 Corinthians 8:3 is talking about is what Linda had that Ada did not have. Some people have the Lord's ear, but most people do not. The secret is loving God.

It is impossible to love God and love the world at the same time. You can only deceive yourself that you love God if you still love the world because love for the world would always make you do things that show that you don't truly love God. A person who loves the world would love the things that are in the world. They include lust (lust of the flesh), greed (lust of the eyes), and pride (pride of life).

If a person loves lust, he would find that he would regularly disobey the Lord in that area. Ada had a boyfriend who would come and spend the weekend with her at least once every month. She knew this was wrong because she knew God did not approve, but she still loved her lust (a thing in the world).

For some, their number one pursuit in this life is material things and money. This lust motivates even their prayer discipline and spiritual practices. They do not realize that a person who truly loves God has God's kingdom as his first priority. Wealth and other things become additions to facilitate his kingdom assignment; they never become the priority of a person who truly loves God.

Pride of life is the reason people compare themselves with others and have 'sleepless nights' because they too want to be seen as successful. Living that way is too much of a burden for the soul of a man who would be productive in God's kingdom.

Go into today remembering that the love of the Father and the love of the world cannot exist together in any human heart. Ask the Holy Spirit to search you and expunge from your heart every love for the world and the things therein.

Prayer: Heavenly Father, please help me to love you and enjoy a robust relationship with you. In Jesus' name. Amen.

The Supernatural Dimension

1 Corinthians 12:1 (WEB) Now concerning spiritual things, brothers, I don’t want you to be ignorant.

Dean had become a grandmaster in the occult. He gave himself so much to the occult because he wanted power. He thought he had power until one prayerful widow moved next door to him within the same apartment.

This woman had more power than Dean had ever seen. She was a real prayer warrior. Many times she prayed in the night, and Dean saw strange things like powerful angels whose presence terrified the demons that normally empowered him. Because she was his next-door neighbor and her presence and prayers kept terrifying and subduing him, he eventually surrendered to Christ because of her influence.

This woman could lead Dean to the Lord and effectively disciple him because she was not ignorant concerning the things of the spirit and the supernatural dimension of the faith. The first night she slept in that apartment, she discerned who Dean was in the spirit, and from then on she intentionally demobilized him spiritually. That was what ultimately led him to salvation.

She would have never been able to lead a man like Dean to the Lord if she was not exposed to the supernatural and prophetic dimension of her walk with the Lord. Revelations, spiritual gifts, angelic encounters, etc., were not strange to her.

Go into today remembering that you are more effective in life and ministry when you are not ignorant concerning spiritual things.

Prayer: Ask the Lord to guide you into all truth so that you may experience the supernatural and power dimension of His kingdom. Amen.

Praying the Will of God

1 John 5:14 (ESV) And this is the confidence that we have toward him, that if we ask anything according to his will he hears us.

Praise was discipled by Precious and they became very close. As time passed, Praise observed that whenever Precious prayed, she received answers. Unlike her, Precious did not have to pray and fast all the time to solve a problem. She simply mentioned it to her Heavenly Father or would speak to the situation, and she always got results. When she asked Precious for the secret to this success in prayers, Precious responded: “I have learned to know and pray the will of God.”

The effectiveness of prayer is not always in how long we pray, it is not even in how pressing the need is, nor is it in how sincerely we are asking. Prayer becomes effective when God's will [that we know] becomes the basis of our prayer. Note that His will is expressed in His word.

All that you will ever need was known to God, provided by Him, and packaged in His will long before your arrival (birth) here on earth. Not living the will of God is living a failure. Jesus taught us to pray that “your (God) will be done on earth as it is in heaven.“ This should be the fulcrum of all our prayers. That was how Jesus prayed (see Matt 26:39).

Go into today determined to spend your time and energy seeking to always walk in God's will. I recommend that you read the devotionals titled 'Discerning the Will of God' again. Find out what God already said concerning your needs and ask God from that standpoint. I guarantee you will become more effective.

Prayer: Father, help me always walk in Your will. Amen.

Titus 2:11-13 (NET) For the grace of God has appeared, bringing salvation to all people. It trains us to reject godless ways and worldly desires and to live self-controlled, upright, and godly lives in the present age, as we wait for the happy fulfillment of our hope in the glorious appearing of our great God and Savior, Jesus Christ.

After Byrum believed in the Lord Jesus, he was baptized in the Holy Ghost, and as a result, was empowered by the Spirit to overcome his addictions and live a godly life. This happened because he submitted to the instructions of righteousness given to him by his pastor. He had to change his apartment because his neighbor was his drug dealer, he had to leave his old friends and totally disconnect from his old way of living. He was filled with the Spirit and was taught to stay filled. In this way, his body was empowered by the indwelling Holy Spirit (Romans 8:11) and he could cope with the withdrawal from the drugs. He spent a lot of time praying and singing in the Spirit because he needed to stay filled with the Spirit. The infilling of the Holy Spirit affects even our mortal bodies.

One of the things the grace of God would teach us is that "bad company corrupts good character" (1 Corinthians 15:33). Those who are taught by grace become very particular about the company they keep. They guard their hearts with all diligence by guarding the information they feed into it.

We saw yesterday that the grace of God trains us or teaches us how to reject ungodly ways and fleshly lusts. There are very practical things we must be willing to do in keeping with the teaching of grace. We must be willing to forsake our worldly ways and deny the flesh.

Go into today remembering that as a student of grace, you have to be willing to obey the demands of God's kingdom for your life. This is the only way to allow the divine life to excel over the old life.

Prayer: Heavenly Father, please lead me to your green pastures and help me be fed and led by your living word. Help me to live a godly and fruitful life. In Jesus' name. Amen.
—Abraham Damilola Arigi

Titus 2:11-13 (NET) For the grace of God has appeared, bringing salvation to all people.  It trains us to reject godless ways and worldly desires and to live self-controlled, upright, and godly lives in the present age, as we wait for the happy fulfillment of our hope in the glorious appearing of our great God and Savior, Jesus Christ.

When Byron accepted the Lord Jesus, he was a drug addict who had been to rehab twice. He didn't believe it was possible for him to overcome his addiction to drugs until he came in contact with the grace of God.

After accepting the gospel, he realized that he was now enrolled in God's educational system. Through the power of the indwelling Holy Spirit and the ministry of the Word, he was trained to reject all his previous godless ways and to now live a self-controlled godly life. Because he was a medical doctor, he understood the physiological ramifications of his addiction, so he knew that it was the power of God that made it possible for him to be trained out of his addictions into a godly life.

Many believers talk a lot about grace but experience too little of it because they do not realize that grace empowers us to overcome sin through a training or educational process administered by the Holy Spirit and the ministry of the Word. Believers who give very little time to the learning of the Word will experience very little grace in their lives.

Today's Bible verses show us that the grace of God trains or teaches us how to reject ungodly ways and fleshly lusts; grace trains us how to live godly lives in this present world. But you cannot isolate all these from the backdrop of our blessed hope as believers. This hope is the expectation of the glory that will be revealed in us when the Lord appears. This expectation keeps us pure as we await the appearing of our God and Savior Jesus Christ (see 1 John 3:3).

Go into today remembering that the grace of God is appropriated in your life through submission to discipleship and learning. Every believer is a disciple. The word disciple means follower, student, or apprentice. Every believer in Christ is a student of grace.

Prayer: Lord, please help me know greater measures of your grace daily. Amen.

Romans 8:24 (KJV) "For we are saved by hope: but hope that is seen is not hope: for what a man seeth, why doth he yet hope for?"

When Sharon was a little girl, she used to be very afraid of the dark. This fear stayed with her until she became an adult. But when she accepted the Lord Jesus, she realized that she had the ability in Christ to conquer all her fears. One of the first lessons she learned was to change her expectations and align them accordingly. This was how she conquered her fears.

Sharon used to be very afraid because her native expectations were always negative. She feared the dark because unknown to her, her expectation was that bad things are bound to happen to her in the dark. This was generally her outlook on life, and she lived in so much fear. But she overcame her fears when she rearranged her expectations according to God's word and promises. She no longer expected evil to meet her in the dark because she now believed that "surely, goodness and mercy shall follow her" (Psalm 23:6).

The way the word [translated as] hope was used by the early believers is very different from the way it is used today. Hope for them was a sure expectation predicated on God's promises, not just wishful thinking.

Today's Bible verse shows us that our salvation was predicated on certain sure expectations based on God's promises.

Most of the expectations of our salvation are things pertaining to eternal life, not merely things pertaining to this temporary form of life (see 1 Corinthians 15:19). Because you are saved, you would not perish like the rest of the world but have everlasting life and rule and reign over the universe with Christ forever (John 3:16, 2 Timothy 2:12, Revelation 21:7). Because we are saved and abide in Christ, we would rule and reign with Christ over this very same earth for a thousand years when the Lord Jesus returns, and thereafter, would replace these heavens and the earth with a new one (see Revelation 20:1-6, 21:1). Because you are saved, you are empowered by the Holy Spirit to live according to God's script concerning you (see Psalm 40:7-8). You will be rewarded according to how faithful you are.

Go into today with your hope unwavering, remembering that our faith is a substance of things hoped for (Hebrews 11:1). True faith is predicated upon expectations informed by the word and promises of God.

Prayer: Ask the Lord to fill your heart with the right expectations so that you would live accurately before Him in accordance with His will.

The Blessed Hope

Romans 8:22-23 (NET) "For we know that the whole creation groans and suffers together until now. Not only this, but we ourselves also, who have the firstfruits of the Spirit, groan inwardly as we eagerly await our adoption, the redemption of our bodies."

Whenever you hear of an earthquake, a tsunami, or a volcanic eruption, it is a sign that creation is groaning and suffering. Whenever you struggle to pray, struggle to meditate on God's Word, or struggle with the flesh, it is a sign that you too are groaning. God didn't make us to struggle; God created us to enter into His rest.

The firstfruits of the Spirit are manifestations of the Holy Spirit within us. When a believer begins to interface with the power of the Holy Spirit, he would immediately realize that there is much more for him in God, but he would also realize that there is a great hindrance to walking in these realities.

It takes a level of spiritual maturity and walk with the Spirit to realize that our spirits are groaning in expectation of something. Very much like the way a woman in labor groans in expectation. But what is this expectation for which creation and believers who have the firstfruits of the Spirit await in groaning? It is the resurrection of the dead. This is when mortality shall put on immortality. This is when our bodies would be changed to glorious bodies that cannot die, grow old, or decay. These bodies have the capacity to reveal our true nature as sons of God. When the resurrection happens, creation too would be set free from its bondage of corruption. This earth would begin to work properly and would be able to relate with man according to the original design. During the millennial reign of Christ and the saints on this earth, the earth would know such peace and harmony that has never been experienced. We would take charge of every territory on earth and bring peace to the nations.

Go into today with the hope of our calling sure in your heart. When the Lord returns, the dead in Christ shall rise first, then those who are alive and remain in Him would also resurrect into the glorious body that can manifest the glory and power of God in ways our minds are too limited to fully comprehend right now.

For The Joy

Broadcast 4077
Click here for the audio version:
Hebrews 12:2 (KJV): "Looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith; who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is set down at the right hand of the throne of God."

God's eternal plan is to establish His kingdom both in heaven and on earth. Scriptures make us understand in Revelation 21:1 that even after this present earth passes away, a new heaven and earth will come, one in which Christ and all the saints will rule forever.

Scripture says in 1 John 3:2-3: "Beloved, now are we the sons of God, and it doth not yet appear what we shall be: but we know that, when he shall appear, we shall be like him; for we shall see him as he is. And every man that hath this hope in him purifieth himself, even as he is pure." This should make you joyful. You are going to be like Christ. Mortality shall put on immortality, and life shall swallow up death forever. Our flesh shall be celestial, not this terrestrial that perishes; this corruptible shall put on incorruptible (1 Corinthians 15:53). Glory to God!

So for this joy, for this kind of majestic life, for the glory that shall be revealed in us, and for the hope that we have of being like Jesus, we purify ourselves as He is pure. Hallelujah! We allow God's Word that is spoken to us to wash away every impurity in us, for we are cleansed by the Word that is spoken to us (John 15:3). We give free course to God's Word to reproof, correct, and instruct us in righteousness, thereby becoming perfect and prepared for good works at all times, as we await His glorious appearing (2 Timothy 3:16-17). Hallelujah!

Prayer: Dear Father, thank You for the joy that is set before me to reign with Jesus for eternity. And for this joy, I purify myself through the instrumentality of Your Word and Spirit that You have made available for me. I will be presented in Your glorious presence at Your coming, by Your Spirit, perfect and without blemish, to enter into Your joy. In Jesus' name, Amen.

The faith of the believer

Broadcast 4076
Click here for the audio version:

Romans 8:11 (NET): "Moreover if the Spirit of the one who raised Jesus from the dead lives in you, the one who raised Christ from the dead will also make your mortal bodies alive through his Spirit who lives in you."

Martha had lived her life in fear of the dark spiritual forces in her village. When she became born a believer in Christ Jesus, one of the first things she learned was that Jesus Christ rose from the dead, and there was no power in hell that could stop Him from resurrecting.

When she understood that the very same Holy Spirit who raised Jesus from the dead now lived within her, she was no longer afraid of the dark spiritual forces in her village. She knew she now had power over them. As time passed, she became a real terror to them. Her faith now produced such spiritual power that none of them could resist; she who used to be terrorized became the one now terrorizing them.

All the while she was afraid of the dark spiritual forces and was even terrorized by them after believing, she had the Holy Spirit living within her, but she didn’t have the faith required to reveal His mighty power.

Every attribute of the divine nature that you have received in your spirit will have to be revealed through faith. Even your righteousness is revealed by faith (see Rom 1:17). This means you have to first believe that you are now righteous, and then this faith produces the physical manifestation of your righteousness. In the same way, you have to first believe that you have been healed, and this faith will produce the physical manifestation of your healing, etc.

Go into today remembering to believe and confess everything you have in Christ Jesus (see 2 Cor 4:13).

Prayer: Thank God for giving you all things in Christ (2 Pet 1:3).

Predestination 2

Broadcast 4075
Click here for the audio version:
Romans 8:30 (KJV): "Moreover whom he did predestinate, them he also called: and whom he called, them he also justified: and whom he justified, them he also glorified. What shall we then say to these things? If God be for us, who can be against us?"
A rich, generous king prepared a big banquet and was kind enough to invite all the nobles and honorable people in his kingdom. But unfortunately, they all despised his invitation and made it clear that they were not coming. Because of this, he extended his invitation to everyone else—the commoners were now invited. Everyone else was now to be part of the banquet (see Matthew 22:1-14).

Salvation was initially for the Jews (see John 4:22). They were the noble people of the earth because they were the nation separated unto God from their inception. But the door was opened to the Gentiles because the Jews rejected the call of God (see Romans 11:12). This was demonstrated in the fact that they were the ones who gave the Lord over to be crucified. But God was aware of all this. It played into His eternal plan to save not only the Jews but the whole world.

Today, many are called, and we can see from today's Scripture that it is those who have been predestined that are called. But we also see in Matthew 22:14 that out of the many called, few are chosen. Our response to the call is what will determine whether we are chosen. Because man has free will, the fact that he was predestined and called does not automatically mean that he will be chosen. We have to respond to the call.

For those of us who have responded to the call of God to become conformed to the image of His dear Son, we need to continue in our conviction to the end (Hebrews 10:23). Let's not allow distractions, pressures, and cares of this life to hinder us from being fruitful. Let us endure to the end so that we would receive our crown and not be ashamed when our Lord appears.

Go into today remembering that God's got you. Your salvation was planned from the foundation of the world. Your life is not a coincidence and all things are working together for your good because you love God and are called according to His purpose.

Prayer: Thank you, Heavenly Father, for choosing me before I knew anything. I ask that you help me walk worthy of this glorious call and please you in all regards. Amen.

Predestination

Broadcast 4074
Click here for the audio version:
Romans 8:29 (NET): "because those whom he foreknew he also predestined to be conformed to the image of his Son, that his Son would be the firstborn among many brothers and sisters."
The doctrine of predestination is probably one of the most misunderstood. Some people think it means there are individuals who cannot be saved because they were not predestined to be so. But that is not true. God wants all people to be saved (1 Timothy 2:4, 2 Peter 3:9). Jesus did not die for the sins of only the predestined, but for the sins of the whole world.

Others say predestination means nothing, believing we are all products of our choices and are ultimately the masters of our destinies. This is also not entirely true.

Our limited minds may not be able to fully comprehend the dynamics of predestination right now, just like the concept of eternal life may be difficult to wrap our minds around. God's realm of eternity is quite different from time. When things happen in time, it is because they have already happened in eternity, but if they fail to happen in time, they cease to exist in eternity. That's why people's names can be erased from the Book of Life (see Revelation 3:5, 22:19, Exodus 32:32-33), even though names were written there from the foundation of the world (see Revelation 13:8).

So important is this realm of time that God invested Himself in His fullness into it. In Christ Jesus (the resurrected Christ) dwells the fullness of the Godhead bodily (see Colossians 2:9). Things that exist in everlasting dimensions in eternity can be scaled into time. The three distinct persons of the Godhead came together and said, "Let us make man in our image." One man in the image of three persons. That should give a picture of the relationship between eternity and time. Yet the things on the earth are only sketches and patterns of the things in the spirit realm (see Hebrews 9:23). Here lies the shadow, there the reality.

This should make us sober because decisions that may look trivial here in time have eternal ramifications of unimaginable magnitude. When Adam sinned by "simply" eating the forbidden fruit, he probably did not know how much damage this caused in the realms. It took God becoming a man to remedy the damage. The things in the heavens were also defiled and needed to be cleansed because of sin committed on the earth (see Hebrews 9:23).

If a person believes in Christ, it may look like a momentary decision, but it has eternal ramifications.

This space is not even sufficient for us to establish a brief foundation for the doctrine of predestination. But if there's anything you should take from today's study concerning predestination, it is that God does not do anything He never planned to do. He is never taken unawares by happenings. He is in control of everything. You can rest in this knowledge.

Go into today with this prayer: Lord God, thank you for the awesome privilege of being created in your image. Please help me walk worthy of my calling and please you in all things. Amen.

Maturity and The Blessing

Broadcast 4073
Click here for the audio version:
Ephesians 4:14 (NET): "So we are no longer to be children, tossed back and forth by waves and carried about by every wind of teaching by the trickery of people who craftily carry out their deceitful schemes."

Sandra had a challenge that really troubled her. She was a believer and had certain spiritual gifts, but this challenge proved stubborn. After praying and fasting for months over the issue, she decided to meet her discipler concerning it. He got a prophetic insight into the problem and prayed for her from that standpoint, and the problem was solved. Sandra’s discipler could pray once and solve a problem she had battled for months because through spiritual maturity, he walked in more spiritual might and authority than her.

Sandra knew it was time for her to become spiritually mature and stable.

One attribute of spiritually mature believers is the willingness to give. Babies don’t give anything or contribute anything to the family; they only know how to take. But when babies grow to become responsible adults, they begin to give to their parents and not just take.

There are believers who give to the work of God, but only because they believe that is a way to get more out of God. This is the same ‘take-take’ mentality of spiritual babes.

The spiritually mature give because of love. They give because they know they are blessed [with all blessings in heavenly places], not primarily because they want to be blessed. Spiritually mature believers are stable and are not blown about by every wind of doctrine. They don’t give impulsively because someone promised a breakthrough in return. They give purposefully and cheerfully (2 Corinthians 9:7) because they see a need and desire to meet it, honor God by giving to His ministers and ministries, and honor God by giving to their parents (both physical and spiritual).

Go into today knowing that your spiritual maturity is determined by your actions. Renounce every way and conduct of spiritual infancy, and you will begin to see the fruits of maturity in your life. The fruits of maturity include spiritual stability, walking in spiritual might and authority, etc.

Prayer: Lord, help me renounce childish ways and grow into the fullness of your will. Amen.

The Believer's Hope

Broadcast 4072
Click here for the audio version:
Colossians 1:5 (NET): "Your faith and love have arisen from the hope laid up for you in heaven, which you have heard about in the message of truth, the gospel."

When the gospel was first preached to the people in Colossae, they were told about the hope of their calling. They understood that they were now part of an eternal kingdom that will soon be made visible to every eye. They understood that they were going to be resurrected with the kind of body that Christ possesses right now (Philippians 3:21)—a body that makes it possible for Him to partake in the realms of heaven and earth (spiritual and physical realms), for Jesus ascended bodily into heaven. This body could never be destroyed and would reveal our true unlimited nature as sons of God (see Romans 8:23 in the AMP version).

In this body, we would have the power to easily and naturally speak to literal mountains and command them to move into the ocean. We would not need to study books to have the deepest knowledge of things, for we would know all things, including the secrets of the universe.

When Jesus physically returns to this world with His saints (Jude 1:14), we would literally take over the governments of this world, rule over the world, and judge both people and angels (see 1 Corinthians 6:2-3). We would be irresistible because we would come with glorified indestructible bodies with unlimited power.

This is a brief summary of the hope laid up for you as a believer. Anyone who has this hope purifies himself (read 1 John 3:2-3).

Many believers do not understand the hope that they have been called into, and their faith wanes because they limit their hope to earthly expectations.

Go into today remembering that you are part of God’s eternal kingdom if you believe in Christ Jesus.

Kingdom Approach To Work 2

Colossians 3:23-24 (KJV): "And whatsoever ye do, do it heartily, as to the Lord, and not unto men; Knowing that of the Lord ye shall receive the reward of the inheritance: for ye serve the Lord Christ."
Because of Grace’s experience before and after her attitudinal change toward work, she now took it upon herself to enlighten those who were caught up in her past mistake. Sandra was one of those she shared her story with. However, Sandra did not listen to Grace because, unlike Grace, she never had a struggle with finances. "If God is not pleased with me, why is He blessing me?" she thought.

If you are like Sandra, who seems to have enjoyed being blessed despite unfaithfulness to work, remember that the ultimate reason for your job is not just to earn money; you are there as Christ's ambassador.

Philippians 2:14-15 (KJV): "Do all things without murmurings and disputings: that ye may be blameless and harmless, the sons of God, without rebuke, in the midst of a crooked and perverse nation, among whom ye shine as lights in the world."

It is by being blameless and harmless that you tell the world that you are a son of God. It is by these virtues that you will be able to shine as light and correct the wrongs in your workplace.

Go into today knowing that God is aware of the perversion in your workplace and has sent you there to shine as light.

Pray this way: Lord, I will shine your light in my workplace by following your precepts for work. In Jesus' name, amen.

Colossians 3:23-24 (KJV): "And whatsoever ye do, do it heartily, as to the Lord, and not unto men; Knowing that of the Lord ye shall receive the reward of the inheritance: for ye serve the Lord Christ."

After working with a government establishment for twenty years, Grace continued to struggle financially. She was very committed to prayers, evangelism, and other church activities but was lackadaisical with her job, and this was the general attitude of her coworkers too. They would often say, "It’s government work, I cannot kill myself for it."

Grace had received all her due promotions when they were due, but things were very tight for her financially. Her frustration led her to seek counsel from her pastor who, by the word of knowledge, told her that her attitude toward her job had been a hindrance to her financial freedom. Grace turned over a new leaf and began to do her work as to the Lord, putting her best effort into her job. After she changed her attitude, her financial struggles ended. She received wisdom to better manage her resources, and new financial doors opened for her.

Ecclesiastes 9:10 (KJV) says, "Whatsoever thy hand findeth to do, do it with thy might..." and in Philippians 2:14-15 (KJV), we are to, "Do all things without murmurings and disputings: that ye may be blameless and harmless, the sons of God, without rebuke, in the midst of a crooked and perverse nation, among whom ye shine as lights in the world."

If you are a child of God, you must do all your work as to the Lord. This is how you will be distinguished from the perverse and crooked coworkers among whom you are to shine as light. Your workplace is a platform for evangelism.

Go into today knowing that God is the one who rewards you when your work is done as unto Him.

Prayer Confession: I will do my work as to the Lord and shine as God's light in my workplace in Jesus' name. Amen.

Growing In the Knowledge of God

Broadcast 4069
Click here for the audio version:
Colossians 1:9-10 (NET): "For this reason we also, from the day we heard about you, have not ceased praying for you and asking God to fill you with the knowledge of his will in all spiritual wisdom and understanding, so that you may live worthily of the Lord and please him in all respects - bearing fruit in every good deed, growing in the knowledge of God."

Mitch observed that whenever his roommate slept in the room, he did not have the terrible nightmares and demonic attacks that had now become part of his adult life. Even though he was now a believer, he knew that his roommate walked in greater spiritual authority. He found out that this was because his roommate had a more robust relationship with the Lord.

The last part of today's Bible text makes it clear that it is possible for a believer to grow in the knowledge of God. This growth is the secret of manifesting great spiritual power. This is the secret of multiplied grace that makes us manifest the divine life in this present world (2 Peter 1:2-3).

We also see that it is possible for us to be fruitful in every good work. God wants you to be fruitful in every good area of your life. Living worthily of the Lord is the most important fruitfulness, as it enables you to have a robust relationship with God and grow in His grace and mighty power. Remember that the fruit of the Spirit affects the way you live.

Being fruitful in every area is only possible when you are filled with the knowledge of God’s will in all spiritual wisdom and understanding.

Go into today remembering that the knowledge of God’s will is received when you pay attention to His word.

Prayer: Ask the Lord to help you apply your heart to His word.

Go for understanding 4

Proverbs 4:7-8 (KJV): "Wisdom is the principal thing; therefore get wisdom: and with all thy getting get understanding. Exalt her, and she shall promote thee: she shall bring thee to honour, when thou dost embrace her."

Aarav became five times more successful in his business when he started running it according to the principles of God's kingdom. At first, it seemed as if he would not make as much profit because he reduced his interest rates and improved his quality of service. It looked as if he was committing business suicide, but with time, he established himself as the most trusted name in that business in his city. No one had the volume of turnover that he had, and he started making more profit than those with ungodly interest rates.

Yesterday we saw that the true definition of walking in wisdom is walking in the will of God (see Ephesians 5:17). Those who seek the will of God in all things are those who seek to walk wisely in all things. Every foolish decision I have ever made in my life was because I did not consider the will of God as the top priority in that decision-making process.

If you truly seek the will of God as the top priority of your life, you will find it, if you seek it with all your heart. Jeremiah 29:13 says (KJV): "And ye shall seek me, and find me, when ye shall search for me with all your heart."

It takes faith to connect with the will of God and see the wisdom therein. Faith provides better sight than natural sight, which is why we should walk by faith and not by sight (see 2 Corinthians 5:7). When walking in faith, patience is required. Hebrews 6:12 (KJV): "That ye be not slothful, but followers of them who through faith and patience inherit the promises."

Go into today determined to walk in the will of God as your top priority. Remember that wisdom is the principal thing, and walking in the will of God is the way to walk wisely.

Prayer: Lord Jesus, please help me to exalt Your will and walk wisely all the days of my life. Amen.

Go for understanding 3

Ephesians 5:17 (NET) For this reason do not be foolish, but be wise by understanding what the Lord’s will is.

Aarav read all the psychology books about marriage he could find because he wanted to have a successful marriage. But he found that all his knowledge (and its application) was not strong enough to save his marriage. Things became too mechanical, and the marriage was heading for a crash.

When he accepted Christ, he sought and discovered God's will concerning marriage. He realized and understood true love. He found that by simply loving his wife and being the head (through sacrifice and not by manipulation or coercion), his marriage became much better and sweeter.

He came to discover that walking in God's will is wiser than the best of human wisdom.

Wisdom can be defined as the right application of knowledge to achieve set goals. But the best of human knowledge sometimes proves insufficient to solve the real issues of life (because many have spiritual roots). The wisest thing for a person is to understand the will of God concerning things and walk in it. Walking in the will of God produces great spiritual power.

Understanding is a function of the human spirit (see Job 32:8). It takes a regenerated human spirit to understand the will of God. When a person accepts the Lordship of Christ Jesus, his spirit is born again [after God's nature] and now has the ability to understand God's will. God has His will concerning every area of life. With the help of the Word and the Holy Spirit, we can understand God's will, and walking in God's will is the true definition of wisdom.

We are eternal beings; we will all be alive and conscious in the next millions and billions of years. Many decisions made outside of the will of God may look wise within the context of time [under the sun], but they would end up being revealed as very foolish decisions when seen from an eternal perspective. The only way we can truly walk wisely is to seek to understand the will of the Lord and walk in it.

Go into today with a renewed desire to understand God's will concerning every area of your life. This is the key to walking in eternal wisdom.

Proverbs 4:7 (KJV): "Wisdom is the principal thing; therefore get wisdom: and with all thy getting get understanding."

Prayer: Lord Jesus, please help me walk wisely in life by understanding Your will in all areas of life. Amen.

The power of fellowship 2

Hebrews 10:23-25 (NLT): "Let us hold tightly without wavering to the hope we affirm, for God can be trusted to keep His promise. Let us think of ways to motivate one another to acts of love and good works. And let us not neglect our meeting together, as some people do, but encourage one another, especially now that the day of His return is drawing near."

After Sharon graduated from university and got a very good job, she became so busy that she no longer had much time for her fellowship with the Lord and with brethren. She didn't realize that this was draining her spiritually until she traveled with her family to the village for Christmas and found that she was now being afflicted in her dreams—something that used to happen to her when she was a little girl before she accepted the Lordship of Christ Jesus.

When she got back to the city, she determined that she was not going to continue to run after everything else but God. She started waiting on the Lord in prayer and fasting. She began having long prayers with her friends over the phone daily and became more serious about finding a church that upholds the truth of God's Word because the church she was attending in the city was just a "feel-good" church with very little spiritual substance. Most of her colleagues who were workers in that church were fornicators, and she knew this.

Many believers backslide when they change environments because they are not diligent in maintaining their spiritual disciplines, which may not fit into their new environment. Believers who continue to grow are those who value their Christian fellowship and fight to maintain it. Today, we are in an age of information technology—let's take advantage of it. With conference calls, it is easy to maintain fellowship and prayer meetings with your brethren (of the same spirit) even if you are far away from each other.

Go into today remembering that your company matters a lot. That's why God has commanded us not to neglect the fellowship of our brethren. Much life and power are generated when believers who love the Lord and each other gather together under His authority.

Prayer: Father Lord, please help me not to neglect the fellowship of my brethren. Strengthen me with might in the inner man by Your Spirit, in Jesus' name. Amen.

Go for Understanding 2

Broadcast 4065
Click here for the audio version:
1 Thessalonians 4:3 (NET) For this is God’s will: that you become holy, that you keep away from sexual immorality.

I remember having a conversation with a backslidden brother who argued with me about the definition of fornication. He tried to convince me that if two people have agreed to marry each other and become intimate, they are not committing fornication because marriage is about consent. I tried to show him from scripture that while marriage involves consent, a lady is given in marriage by the constituted [spiritual] authority over her. She does not give herself in marriage; her father or someone occupying that position in her life is the one who gives her in marriage.

My conversation with this brother (whom the Lord is now restoring) opened my eyes to an important issue I had not properly considered: sexual immorality is a major source of stumbling for many believers, but little is said about it in many church assemblies. Many have gotten into trouble in this area because of carelessness in small things. I remember having to instruct one of my mentees to never be alone with a sister when she visits.

God's will for us as believers is that we become holy. Nothing hinders this more than sexual immorality. Fleeing sexual immorality is not a suggestion for believers; it is an instruction. If we are to continue living and excelling spiritually, we must put to death the works of the flesh (see Romans 8:13), and the first on that list is sexual immorality (see Galatians 5:19).

We live in a world that is increasingly sensual. Temptations are everywhere, but remember that where sin abounds, grace abounds much more. Grace empowers us to resist sin and teaches us how to deny worldly lusts (Titus 2:11-12). For example, grace would teach an unmarried young man not to tell a lady he does not intend to marry that he loves her.

Go into today asking the Lord for grace to stand firm in this area. This grace is received by faith. You have to believe that you can stand and stay pure.

Prayer: I expel and resist every latent influence of the spirits of immorality. I walk in holiness and inherit God's promises. Amen (2 Corinthians 7:1).

Go for Understanding

Broadcast 4064
Click here for the audio version:
Ephesians 5:17 (NET): "For this reason do not be foolish, but be wise by understanding what the Lord’s will is."

Lara was a very fruitful believer because she was truly wise. In every place she found herself, she first sought to understand God's will for sending her there. Then she would properly manage her time and resources to ensure that she fulfilled God's purpose for her being there. This was why she was never found wasting time on things that were not essential to fulfilling her purpose in any location she found herself.

Unfortunately, not many believers are like Lara. It is possible to be a believer and yet remain foolish because of a lack of spiritual understanding. Today's Bible verse is directed to believers, instructing them not to be foolish but to be wise. We also see from the verse that the way to be wise is to understand what the Lord's will is. It is one thing to know the will of the Lord, but it is another to understand it. For example, a person may know that lying is not the will of God, but he walks in divine wisdom when he understands that his tongue is one of the powerful assets that God has given him, and telling lies diminishes the power of his tongue to decree things and see them come to pass.

Go into today remembering that the secret to walking in divine wisdom in any area is understanding God's will in that area. "In all your getting, get understanding" (Proverbs 4:7).

Prayer: Lord, help me understand your will for me in every situation and walk in it. In Jesus' name, Amen.

The Power of Fellowship

Broadcast 4063
Click here for the audio version:

2 Corinthians 6:14 (KJV)  "Be ye not unequally yoked together with unbelievers: for what fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness? and what communion hath light with darkness?"

Biodun became really lonely because his friends had left him. He was now "too born again" for them, and the only friend who didn’t leave stayed around because of Biodun’s money, and Biodun knew this. Biodun decided that it was time to make new friends, but he found that he wasn’t connecting with many of the brethren he had met. They saw life quite differently.

He decided to pray about this: he asked the Lord to link him with people who would help him grow. The next morning, he went to church. The minister preached on evangelism and encouraged everyone in the church to be actively involved in making disciples. Biodun knew that the message was for him. He decided that he was going to make disciples for the Lord according to His command (see Matthew 28:19). The first day he left his house to evangelize in his neighborhood, he met some youth corps members and evangelized to them. Three among them believed. They were honored to be close to Biodun because he was a very successful person. Biodun scheduled a Bible study meeting with them, and they all came promptly. They also brought their friends.

They would pick a book (such as those by Watchman Nee or Kenneth Hagin) and read certain chapters, and they would discuss it in their Bible study meetings (there was always food at the Bible study). Many of them had questions. If the questions were difficult for Biodun to answer, they would go to church to ask their pastor.

Your faith as a believer thrives in the community of believers. Fellowship is very important in Christianity (Acts 2:42). We thrive in fellowship and community; that’s the way God designed it. Even God exists in a community—the Trinity.

If you find yourself in a place where there are no disciples of Christ for you to fellowship with, make disciples (Mark 16:15, Matt 28:19).

Prayer: Lord Jesus, please give me the grace to make disciples everywhere you place me. Amen.
