You Can Overcome – RCCG Open Heavens Devotional Saturday 31st August 2013
YOU CAN OVERCOME! BY PASTOR E. A. ADEBOYE

Memorise:
Nay, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him that loved us. Romans 8:37

Read:
Matthew 4:1-11

Then was Jesus led up of the Spirit into the wilderness to be tempted of the devil. Matthew 4:1

And when he had fasted forty days and forty nights, he was afterward an hungred. Matthew 4:2

And when the tempter came to him, he said, If thou be the Son of God, command that these stones be made bread. Matthew 4:3

But he answered and said, It is written, Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of God. Matthew 4:4

Then the devil taketh him up into the holy city, and setteth him on a pinnacle of the temple, Matthew 4:5

And saith unto him, If thou be the Son of God, cast thyself down: for it is written, He shall give his angels charge concerning thee: and in their hands they shall bear thee up, lest at any time thou dash thy foot against a stone. Matthew 4:6

Jesus said unto him, It is written again, Thou shalt not tempt the Lord thy God. Matthew 4:7

Again, the devil taketh him up into an exceeding high mountain, and sheweth him all the kingdoms of the world, and the glory of them; Matthew 4:8

And saith unto him, All these things will I give thee, if thou wilt fall down and worship me. Matthew 4:9

Then saith Jesus unto him, Get thee hence, Satan: for it is written, Thou shalt worship the Lord thy God, and him only shalt thou serve. Matthew 4:10

Then the devil leaveth him, and, behold, angels came and ministered unto him. Matthew 4:11

Open Heavens Devotional Message
To bring down a believer, the devil focuses on his or her weak points. Everyone has at least one point of weakness. Yet to overcome the overtures of the devil, you must focus on what he focuses on. That is, if he is focusing on your weakness so that he can bring you down by it, you too should focus on how to use the word of God and prayer to work on it, until it becomes your strong point. Do you know that if your weakness is that you find it difficult to resist anything in skirt, God can help you to the extent that even when a lady is naked before you, you will not be under any pressure to sin with her? Such character does not evolve by itself. It takes a careful study of the word of God, prayer and discipline. Are you ready to turn your weakness into your strong point?

Satan is good at showing people things to tempt them. That he showed you sometimes does not mean that you have already sinned. In Matthew 4, he took Jesus to a height and showed Him the glory of this world. Thereafter, he offered to give these to Him if only He could bow to him. Oh! How cheap you may say! Just one innocuous bow and you get all these? What a lie! A bow to Satan is more than an ordinary bow. That single bow will subordinate you to him and his evil government. That bow would make you his slave for a life time. That bow would separate you from the Lover of your soul and drown you in hell eternally. 

One way out is to refuse to see what the devil wants to show you. In your office as an accounts or finance officer, Satan can show you the loop hole in the organization’s account and tell you to exploit it and make ‘clean’ money for yourself. Don’t agree with him. Do you know that, Satan’s agent of temptation, who is saddled with the task of making you sin, can be converted? Today, some ladies who came to lure some brothers to fornication have ended up giving their lives to Christ. This is why when the spiritual battle is getting too hot, Satan withdraws his agents out of fear of losing them. You can overcome the devil!

Bible In One Year:
1 John 3-5

Key Point
Just as Satan can set you up to fall into sin, you too can prayerfully set up Satan’s agent to be saved. And Satan will be in sorrow.

A Debtor In Thanks – RCCG Open Heavens Devotional Friday 30th August 2013
A Debtor In Thanks – RCCG Open Heavens Devotional Friday 30th August 2013
A DEBTOR IN THANKS? BY PASTOR E. A. ADEBOYE

Memorise:
Neither filthiness, nor foolish talking, nor jesting, which are not convenient: but rather giving of thanks. Ephesians 5:4

Read:
Ephesians 5:1-4

Be ye therefore followers of God, as dear children; Ephesians 5:1

And walk in love, as Christ also hath loved us, and hath given himself for us an offering and a sacrifice to God for a sweetsmelling savour. Ephesians 5:2

But fornication, and all uncleanness, or covetousness, let it not be once named among you, as becometh saints; Ephesians 5:3

Neither filthiness, nor foolish talking, nor jesting, which are not convenient: but rather giving of thanks. Ephesians 5:4

Open Heavens Devotional Message
To become a divine favourite, you must be ready to be different. When people are busy discussing things of no heavenly values, you will keep them at a distance. 2 Timothy 2:23 says such an individual must avoid foolish and unlearned questions, while Ephesians 5:4 says,

“Neither filthiness, nor foolish talking, nor jesting, which are not convenient: but rather giving of thanks.”

Instead of saying anything that does not glorify God or make jest of people, God expects you to give thanks. In other words, in God’s estimation, all the man hours wasted on filthy or immoral communication, gossips, exaggerations and jesting are seen as time for thanksgiving that was not given to God. This means if you have spent one hour speaking what does not edify yourself and others or glorify God, you have just robbed God of an hour of thanksgiving. By the time God uses this scripture to take stock of our lives; people will owe Him so much in thanksgiving. Stop complaining of the nation or of bad leaders; complaining does not stop them from their evil. Rather use such time to thank God and pray for them, this will deliver you something worthwhile.

Divine favourites do not waste their time in frivolities but use free moments to appreciate their God. They spend time discussing heavenly things. They are not only special but also peculiar. People must be able to look at you and say you are different. The definition of fanatical Christianity is actually that the fellow loves Jesus more than you do. If others decide to soil their hands in that business deal, you will remember according to Psalm 24:3-5, that your hands and heart must be clean, and so you would rather choose not to join them. You are special to God. You cannot afford to behave like others. Eagles do not eat dead animals. It is vultures that do that and may even prefer rotten ones. Are you an eagle or a vulture? Your Father is holy, how come you do not mind sinning? Be like the eagle you have been called to be and God will back you up. Separate from all shady deals. In any case, are you a debtor to God in thanksgiving?

Bible In One Year:
1 John 1-2

Key Point
Thanksgiving is a work of righteousness, faith and love. It adds to your credit with God.

WHERE IS THE FIRE? BY PASTOR E. A. ADEBOYE

Memorise:
And of the angels he saith, Who maketh his angels spirits, and his ministers a flame of fire. Hebrews 1:7

Read:
Hebrews 1:5-7
For unto which of the angels said he at any time, Thou art my Son, this day have I begotten thee? And again, I will be to him a Father, and he shall be to me a Son? Hebrews 1:5

And again, when he bringeth in the firstbegotten into the world, he saith, And let all the angels of God worship him. Hebrews 1:6

And of the angels he saith, Who maketh his angels spirits, and his ministers a flame of fire. Hebrews 1:7

Open Heaven Devotional Message
Repercussion for sins done on earth will not only come in eternity but also in this present world. During one of the Divine Encounter services we had sometimes ago, I asked the Lord what was happening concerning His promise to raise several millionaires and He replied: “Do you want me to prosper those who are stealing?” this speaks of the limitation of man.

There was this surgeon in charge of bones in one of the Nigerian hospitals. Whenever someone who had an accident was brought to him, he would take a look and charge exorbitantly. If they complain about his fee, he would pick up an axe and threaten to amputate the leg. Through this means, he got people in pain and sorrow to pay him and he became very wealthy. Then one day, he too took ill and went everywhere but the problem could not be diagnosed. After he spent all he had, it was then he got to know that he was suffering from cancer of the liver, and yet he could not survive it.

What are you pursuing? Elisha was pursuing the double portion of the anointing on his master. Esau was pursuing food. Judas was pursuing money! When I was still very young in the faith, my prayer night and day was that I did not want to be an ordinary Christian. Are you a minister of God? What are you pursuing? What is taking most of your time? What is giving you the greatest level of happiness? If it is mundane things, then like Gehazi, then you have missed it.

Focusing on the wrong things accounts for a greater percentage of wastage in the Kingdom of God. According to Hebrews 1:7, God’s servant should be fire brand. You were called to be a flame of fire. You are supposed to be hot because you operate from God’s power house. Take a look at Elijah who was indeed a fire brand and could call fire down on anyone who messed up with him. Where is your own fire? Where is the heat you were supposed to generate? Go back to God for that fire!

Bible In One Year:
Song of Solomon 7-8

Action Point
Ask for a fresh baptism of fire.

Emotional Wellbeing: 3 Effective Tips To Healing After A Heartbreak
Emotional Wellbeing: 3 Effective Tips To Healing After A Heartbreak
Emotional Wellbeing: 3 Effective Tips To Healing After A Heartbreak

A fellow blogger Darren Shilling wrote this this piece about how to handle loss of a someone in love and I thought it will be useful to my readers. Read and be benefited.

Things change, people change, times change, ideals change. Sometimes after all that change we find ourselves standing on the other side of a significant loss. Sometimes we find ourselves heart broken without a clue about what to do. Here are three things I have learned to do in the direct aftermath of an emotional direct hit.


Don't Take It Personally
This direct attack on your happiness and security was an accident. They once loved you and you once loved them. Maybe they even wanted to be with you but felt that they couldn't. Maybe they took your situation for granted and let their emotions fade. Maybe you were still fully in love and they did some things that destroyed you because they didn't have the courage to be honest with you. No matter what their actions what they did was an accident.

At this point I'd like to add that if they are still in love with you and you are still in love with them but you broke up with them because what they did was “unforgivable”, nothing is unforgivable if you are in love.

That being said if there emotions changed it was an accident. You can fall out of love as quickly as you can fall in love. The pain you are feeling wasn't an intentional attack on you. It wasn't premeditated and purposeful. It just happened. They also thought you were going to be there when they died. They also planned a future for the two of you. They also loved you. Now that has changed but they also didn't want it to. It just did. It's unfair to hold them accountable for something that is out of their control like their feelings changing. 


Treat Everyone Involved Gracefully
At the end of the day the situation isn't going to change. The movies love to make you think that the best thing to do is lash out and attack them and burn their clothes and smash their car. It's not. Your heart is broken. I get it. It's difficult. I know that.

Any attack you make will be made on someone you once loved. Weather you like it or not they still contain something you once loved. Your pain and anger and hurt are yours to deal with. Lashing out with emotions like anger and fear is only meant to be done in the event of an emergency to get you to a place of safety. Once you have used those emotions to get away from the source of danger their purpose is over. Revenge and spite and retribution can only serve to hurt someone else. Using your pain as a motivation to attack another human being will only end up extending your pain.

Distance yourself form the situation but don't attack. You're going to recover a lot quicker if you allow those initial emotions to settle down so you can move on to the upcoming stages of acceptance, and forgiveness. Remember your goal is healing yourself so you no longer feel this pain.


Be Grateful For Having Felt Love
Maybe it's not that big of a deal to you. Maybe it's something you figure everyone gets to have at some point in their lives. Let me tell you sister (or brother) it's rare. What you felt there for a while no matter how long you felt it is an extremely rare thing on this planet. Not everyone gets to feel real love in their lifetime. Some people don't even get to feel familial love. Some people can't even find a dog that likes them.

It's pretty easy to take all kinds of things for granted if you're in a privileged country. Just like access to clean water, grocery stores, and medical care what you had was rare and valuable. Don't forget that. You received a gift that is far more rare than the diamonds they put in wedding rings. Allow yourself to celebrate the receiving of that great gift. The pain you feel now that it's over pales in comparison to the value of what you have gotten to feel and celebrate with your former lover.

Take the time to throw up a little thank you prayer to whomever you like to thank in your prayers for what you were given. It was a great reward for being a human being.

In Conclusion
You will heal and you will move on and you will love again. You are capable of feeling this again. Weather you like it or not love ends.Either someone dies or someone leaves. Either way the value of what you had with that other person is not diminished by it ending.

Dare To Be Different – RCCG Open Heavens Devotion Wednesday 28th August, 2013
DARE TO BE DIFFERENT! BY PASTOR E. A. ADEBOYE

Memorise:
But Daniel purposed in his heart that he would not defile himself with the portion of the king's meat, nor with the wine which he drank: therefore he requested of the prince of the eunuchs that he might not defile himself. Daniel 1:8

Read:
Daniel 1:8-16

But Daniel purposed in his heart that he would not defile himself with the portion of the king's meat, nor with the wine which he drank: therefore he requested of the prince of the eunuchs that he might not defile himself. Daniel 1:8

Now God had brought Daniel into favour and tender love with the prince of the eunuchs. Daniel 1:9

And the prince of the eunuchs said unto Daniel, I fear my lord the king, who hath appointed your meat and your drink: for why should he see your faces worse liking than the children which are of your sort? then shall ye make me endanger my head to the king. Daniel 1:10

Then said Daniel to Melzar, whom the prince of the eunuchs had set over Daniel, Hananiah, Mishael, and Azariah, Daniel 1:11

Prove thy servants, I beseech thee, ten days; and let them give us pulse to eat, and water to drink. Daniel 1:12

Then let our countenances be looked upon before thee, and the countenance of the children that eat of the portion of the king's meat: and as thou seest, deal with thy servants. Daniel 1:13

So he consented to them in this matter, and proved them ten days. Daniel 1:14

And at the end of ten days their countenances appeared fairer and fatter in flesh than all the children which did eat the portion of the king's meat. Daniel 1:15

Thus Melzar took away the portion of their meat, and the wine that they should drink; and gave them pulse. Daniel 1:16

Open Heavens Devotional Message
To shine is to be peculiar according to 1 Peter 2:9. Those who are peculiar are usually different. It also means to stand out from the crowd. In 2 Kings 2:1-8, there were many sons of the prophets but only Elisha stood out and shone all the way. To shine you must be willing to be special. Acts 19:11-12 says God performed special miracles through one of His servants who was willing to shine. Do you know that God is ready to use you to do the impossible?

Do you know that everything you need to succeed in life and ministry is already prepared by God? The problem is that we are not willing: we are often not ready. Do you know some of us keep God on His toes? He is ever ready but are we? Before God ever sent you on an errand, He had provided everything for you to successfully carry out that assignment. Even when you are faced with lack, God does not see any lack because He has made provision for all things. All you need to do is to go to Him in all sincerity and ask.

Another reason many of us cannot shine is because we refuse to pay the price to shine. God will not ask you to pay the price that you cannot. He is no taskmaster. If you are special, your standard must be quite high. You cannot afford to eat what every other person is eating. Daniel was special and he refused what others ate and at the end, he and his pals had a different result from every other person

 If you want to end differently let your consecration level and loyalty level be different. If you do what every other person is doing, but expect to end somewhere else, then you must be a joker. Are you prepared to pray more intensively, worship more in spirit and truth and study the Word as never before? Are you prepared to make sacrifices for the kingdom? It is what you are prepared to give up or to give in that will determine what God is willing to give out to you.

Action Point
Ask God for the grace to be positively different.

DARE TO BE DIFFERENT! BY PASTOR E. A. ADEBOYE

Memorise:
But Daniel purposed in his heart that he would not defile himself with the portion of the king's meat, nor with the wine which he drank: therefore he requested of the prince of the eunuchs that he might not defile himself. Daniel 1:8

Read:
Daniel 1:8-16

But Daniel purposed in his heart that he would not defile himself with the portion of the king's meat, nor with the wine which he drank: therefore he requested of the prince of the eunuchs that he might not defile himself. Daniel 1:8

Now God had brought Daniel into favour and tender love with the prince of the eunuchs. Daniel 1:9

And the prince of the eunuchs said unto Daniel, I fear my lord the king, who hath appointed your meat and your drink: for why should he see your faces worse liking than the children which are of your sort? then shall ye make me endanger my head to the king. Daniel 1:10

Then said Daniel to Melzar, whom the prince of the eunuchs had set over Daniel, Hananiah, Mishael, and Azariah, Daniel 1:11

Prove thy servants, I beseech thee, ten days; and let them give us pulse to eat, and water to drink. Daniel 1:12

Then let our countenances be looked upon before thee, and the countenance of the children that eat of the portion of the king's meat: and as thou seest, deal with thy servants. Daniel 1:13

So he consented to them in this matter, and proved them ten days. Daniel 1:14

And at the end of ten days their countenances appeared fairer and fatter in flesh than all the children which did eat the portion of the king's meat. Daniel 1:15

Thus Melzar took away the portion of their meat, and the wine that they should drink; and gave them pulse. Daniel 1:16

Vaginal Hygiene: How To Keep The Vagina Clean, Tight And Prevent Odour
Vaginal Hygiene: How To Keep The Vagina Clean, Tight And Prevent Odour
Vaginal Hygiene: How To Keep The Vagina Clean, Tight And Prevent Nasty Odour

I saw this post about how to keep your vagina clean, odourless and tight on RML and thought I share it with you. Even if you don't have a vagina like me, I'm sure you know someone close to you who does, and this post about vagina hygiene will definitely be useful to them. Prevention they say is better than cure. The earlier you start practicing these healthy steps the better for your vaginal health and hygiene.

Below is what she wrote;
Have you ever wondered once or twice or more, how tight your vagina was, or whether your vagina has a bad smell? If you're married or sexually active, you probably have. It will definitely be on your mind when you want to do the do or it's time for your partner to go 'down'.

For getting your vagina tight, I know Kegels are great and I practice them when I remember. By the way, am I the only one who gets aroused doing Kegel exercises?

About how to keep away the bad vagina smells, bear in mind that all vaginas have their own natural smell, maybe I should say scent. That unique scent can be an aphrodisiac for your partner, but when your vagina starts smelling too fishy, there's something fishy.

You need to get rid of that foul vagina smell from the inside out, and from the outside in.
Here are some tips I found;

1. Eat a good quantity of citrus fruits like Oranges and Lemons

2. I don't know what Indian Gooseberry is but it's supposed to help for OK vaginal odor

3. Add fresh yoghurt to your diet

4. Garlic is your friend, as it helps keep away bacterial infections

5. Tea Tree Oil is mentioned too, I've never used it. I know it's great for hair too.

6. Drink lots of water, of course.

7. Use water every time you use a toilet, a wipe may be better than tissue paper. Avoid using douches.
    Wash your vagina with unscented soap or simple feminine wash for the external area only.

8. Keep the vaginal area clean and dry also keep your pubic hair short.

9. Choose cotton underwears or those with cotton in the vagina area. Or go commando, that is, without
    undies at all. A pretty bold airing move the virgie

10. During your period, change your sanitary pads or tampons frequently and use panty liners during your           ovulation.

I would love to hear your own ideas on how to prevent vaginal odour. Please leave a comment below.

PS, who can count how many times I said vagina in this post?

Below are some useful Youtubes videos to help you keep your vagina clean, tight and prevent odour.

Expedited Progress – RCCG Open Heavens Devotion Tuesday 27th August, 2013
Expedited Progress – RCCG Open Heavens Devotion Tuesday 27th August, 2013 - Flying Eagle
EXPEDITED PROGRESS BY PASTOR E. A. ADEBOYE

Memorise:
For he had possession of flocks, and possession of herds, and great store of servants: and the Philistines envied him. Genesis 26:14

Read:
1 Samuel 16:11-13

And Samuel said unto Jesse, Are here all thy children? And he said, There remaineth yet the youngest, and, behold, he keepeth the sheep. And Samuel said unto Jesse, Send and fetch him: for we will not sit down till he come hither. 1 Samuel 16:11

And he sent, and brought him in. Now he was ruddy, and withal of a beautiful countenance, and goodly to look to. And the LORD said, Arise, anoint him: for this is he. 1 Samuel 16:12

Then Samuel took the horn of oil, and anointed him in the midst of his brethren: and the Spirit of the LORD came upon David from that day forward. So Samuel rose up, and went to Ramah. 1 Samuel 16:13

Open Heavens Devotional Message
Besides motionlessness and crawling, the next category of motion is walking. The first two categories have to do with immaturity. When a month old baby is placed somewhere, the legs and hands can be moving in the air but there will be no physical motion. Also, it is toddlers that crawl on their hands and feet; when a toddler wants to move towards maturity, he or she will begin to stand and walk. To walk means to move from one point to another at a uniform pace on foot. The progress that can be attained with this kind of motion is minimal. Most people are at this level of motion. They move from month to month just managing to exist.

However, apart from walking there is leaping as another category of motion. In Acts 3:1-8, when the lame fellow was healed, he began to walk and to leap. To leap is to move by jumping forcefully with a long or high arc. Even though the upward height attained by leaping is temporal, it is still better than just waling. There are some things ordinarily beyond your reach but when you leap, you are able to access them. This can be compared in financial terms with a business man who gets one contract in three years. Another category of motion is running. To run is to make steady, speed progress. In Genesis 26:12-14, we read that Isaac’s financial and material blessings took a progressive trajectory. Verse 13 of this scripture says,

And the man waxed great, and went forward, and grew until he became very great

That is progress at some speed. The next category is flying. To fly is to make a fast upward motion and to sustain motion at the height so attained for a while. If you were to go from Lagos to Abuja by running, it could take you at least two days if you are very strong, but if you were to fly in an airbus, it would take you less than an hour. In other words, when you fly, time and results are in you favour. What will take your colleagues so long to accomplish would be achieved at a considerable shorter time by you. For instance, in 1 Samuel 16:11-13, David woke up that morning as a shepherd boy but before evening, he had been anointed king. That is expedited progress far beyond running and this will be your portion this season.

Song of Solomon 1-3

Prayer Point
Father, give speed to my progress.

Be Wise Win Souls – RCCG Open Heavens Devotional Monday 26th August 2013
BE WISE, WIN SOULS BY PASTOR E. A. ADEBOYE

Memorise:
The fruit of the righteous is a tree of life; and he that winneth souls is wise.
Proverbs 11:30

Read:
Proverbs 11:29-31

He that troubleth his own house shall inherit the wind: and the fool shall be servant to the wise of heart. Proverbs 11:29

The fruit of the righteous is a tree of life; and he that winneth souls is wise. Proverbs 11:30

Behold, the righteous shall be recompensed in the earth: much more the wicked and the sinner. Proverbs 11:31

Open Heavens Devotional Message
Psalm 111:10 says if you will be wise at all, you will start by fearing God. Proverbs 3:7 says,

“Be not wise in thine own eyes: fear the LORD, and depart from evil.”
Proverbs 3:7

This means it is not what men think wisdom is that is truly wisdom but what God calls wisdom. Also, it tells us that it is wisdom to avoid sin in its entirety and foolishness to live in sin. Are you born-again? God says you have started your journey into wisdom. Any step into sin therefore is dumping wisdom for foolishness. Show me a wise believer and I will show you a believer who keeps sin at arms-length. How close are you to sin?

“The fruit of the righteous is a tree of life; and he that winneth souls is wise.”
Proverbs 11:30

Another yardstick for measuring wisdom is the ability to win souls. The scripture did not say the fellow who wins a soul to Christ once in a long while – say three or six months, is wise, but the fellow who continues to win souls. If you win souls once in a while, you are to be commended: you are at the periphery of wisdom. But if you want to be counted as wise, you must do so more often. We live at the end time and there is a massive assignment God has for today believers in Christ that involves serious, planned and sustained soul winning.

The wise believers will be actively involved in soul winning irrespective of their primary calling or department, while the foolish believers will occupy themselves with activities that have no bearing with soul winning. Someday God will draw a line between the wise and the foolish, between the soul winners and believers who refuse to win souls. On that day, where will you fall? How many souls have you won to the Lord this year, this month or this week? Key into soul winning and key into wisdom and eternal blessing today!

Prophesy Into Your Salvation – RCCG Open Heavens Devotional Sunday 25th August 2013
PROPHESY INTO YOUR SITUATION BY PASTOR E. A. ADEBOYE

Memorise:
A man shall eat good by the fruit of his mouth: but the soul of the transgressors shall eat violence. Proverbs 13:2

Read:
Proverbs 13:2-3
A man shall eat good by the fruit of his mouth: but the soul of the transgressors shall eat violence. Proverbs 13:2

He that keepeth his mouth keepeth his life: but he that openeth wide his lips shall have destruction. Proverbs 13:3

Open Heavens Devotional Message
For over three years, there had been no rain. Suddenly, Elijah emerged and said he heard the sound of much rain. This ultimately led to a turnaround. We ought to learn some lessons from this story.

“And Elijah said unto Ahab, Get thee up, eat and drink; for there is a sound of abundance of rain.”
1 Kings 18:41

In the midst of so much famine and dryness, the man of God heard the inaudible. Amos 3:7 says before God does anything, He would first reveal it to at least one of His prophets. Revelation 2:7 says the Spirit is saying something but it will take only those who have spiritual ears to hear the divine message. This shows that in the unpleasant situation you are going through, God is saying something. Have you heard what God is saying? Concerning that situation of joblessness, God is saying something. Concerning that need for a spouse, God is saying something. Concerning that state of famine or financial dryness, God is saying something. But have you heard what the Spirit is saying to you about that situation? Before you know the next thing to do, first know what He is saying.

In addition, after the man of God heard something, he spoke it out – that is, he announced it or prophesied about it even when the situation appeared bleak. The best time to prophesy or announce what God has spoken to you concerning a situation is when it is still hopeless, helpless and bleak. In Genesis 1:1-3, it was in the midst of chaos, emptiness and darkness that God spoke. What are you saying in that situation of repeated disappointment? Stop confessing negative things, but start speaking God’s word into your negative situation. As you speak His word or promise into your dark situation, God’s light is released and as you continue to prophesy the word, the light of God continues to spread in that situation until it completely takes over the situation, leaving you with nothing but a testimony. Confess God’s word into your situation from today.

Bible In One Year:
Revelations 16-18

Action Point
For the next 30 days, make prophetic declarations about yourself, family, work, ministry and destiny everyday.

Empowered To Comfort Others – RCCG Open Heavens Devotional Saturday 24th August 2013
Empowered To Comfort Others – RCCG Open Heavens Devotional Saturday 24th August 2013
EMPOWERED TO COMFORT OTHERS BY PASTOR E. A. ADEBOYE

Memorise:
For the Lamb which is in the midst of the throne shall feed them, and shall lead them unto living fountains of waters: and God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes.
Revelation 7:17

Read:
Revelation 7:15-17

Therefore are they before the throne of God, and serve him day and night in his temple: and he that sitteth on the throne shall dwell among them. Revelation 7:15

They shall hunger no more, neither thirst any more; neither shall the sun light on them, nor any heat. Revelation 7:16

For the Lamb which is in the midst of the throne shall feed them, and shall lead them unto living fountains of waters: and God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes. Revelation 7:17

Open Heavens Devotional Message
Apart from consuming stones, the fire that came down from heaven equally dried up the water poured on and around the sacrifice Elijah made on mount Carmel (1 Kings18:38). Water here stands for tears and sorrow. One reason the Holy Spirit is called comforter is because He is a specialist at delivering comfort to those who are in sorrow or who are hurting. Revelation 7:17 says,

“For the Lamb which is in the midst of the throne shall feed them, and shall lead them unto living fountains of waters: and God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes.”

If you are a man or woman of the Spirit, He will definitely use you to deliver comfort to those in need of it. The level of comfort you are able to deliver to your generation is a function of the measure of the Holy Spirit you have in you, and the level of closeness you share with Him.

“The Spirit of the Lord GOD is upon me; because the LORD hath anointed me to preach good tidings unto the meek; he hath sent me to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim liberty to the captives, and the opening of the prison to them that are bound;”
Isaiah 61:1

From the above scripture, we see that it takes the infilling of the Spirit to be able to effectively preach salvation to the lost sinners, heal broken hearts, set the captive free and release inmates from Satan’s prison. If a pastor is full of the Spirit and he is transferred to a parish with lots of sorrow, sickness, poverty, loss, failure, etc., you will discover that before long, all those tokens of the liar will disappear and in place of tears, there shall be tears of joy and lots of miracles. If you want to truly be of help to anyone – be it in ministerial or secular matters, get close to the Holy Spirit. When you have the Spirit in you, you will save lots of effort and needless struggles. Merely saying, ‘It is well’ to a hurting fellow will have a great impact in comfort. Besides merely showing sympathy, if you are full with the Holy Spirit, He can reverse the source of the sorrow and deliver permanent joy. Are you prepared to impact your generation?

Bible In One Year:
Revelations 13-15

Action Point
Prayerfully identify 10 brethren who need comfort and by the power of the Holy Spirit, using the Word and other materials, extend comfort on them.

Physical 'UnFitness': Imagine If Animals Ate Fast Food (Video) - Hamburger, Chips and a Drink
The wildlife would've been unfit to be called wild had the animals been eating fast food like humans. These animals are usually healthy because they stick to the healthy living plan of healthy diet and exercise regimen set out for them by mother nature. The crocodile part in the video was the funniest of them all lol. In other humans will live a lot better stay off fast foods.

Watch the video below

Cultural Divide? Difference In Foreign And Nigerian Response To Advice Issues
Cultural Divide? Difference In Foreign And Nigerian Response To Advice Issues
Cultural Divide? Difference In Foreign And Nigerian Response To Advice Issues

Nature and nurture has remained a strong force in forming an individual's personality. These factors are in turn affected by culture. Cultural divide across the globe account for some mind bugling disparities in peoples way of life and behaviour. The post you are about to read below regarding different manner in which foreigners and Nigerians respond to advice issues shouldn't be taken lightly. It is all over the web. It is like a comic relief, yes because I laughed hard at it. But in reality, it's tragic. Is it a cultural response?


This is really a typical Nigerian forum response. Imagine someone seeking advice and look at the kind of responses coming from Nigerians, compare it with the foreign responses. Some of the Nigerian responses are totally unrelated to the subject. Some have the holier-than-thou tone, etc. Someone needs advice to better her life and relationship not invitation to ridicule. If you don't have any sensible thing to say, then don't say nonsense. Note also that the response is not always like this, but most times, it is.

Check the sample responses below;

Foreign Complainant:

Hello, My name is Sandra Stone, I'm from the UK, I love my husband so much and I do anything to please him in bed. I go down on him but he has refused to reciprocate. Please advice me on how to tell him to go down on me cos I really want him that way.

Foreign Comments:
John Silva:
I think you need to talk to him, marriage is communication.

Kerry Water: Oh my dear, sorry about that, I have been in your shoes before. I told him right away and he is an expert at it.

Michael Paper: I get down with my wife, its cool I love doing it. You should talk to your husband.

Nigerian Complainant:
My name is Aminat, I stay In Abuja, married with a kid, my husband has refused to go down on me, what should I do? No insults abeg.

Nigerian Comments:
Sule: First to comment, Space Booked!

Dayo Muyiwa: Fool, sex na food?

Nkiru Joy: You are a disgrace to womanhood. SHAME on you.

Idris Kunle: Any news about ASUU Strike?

Toheeb Sule: If you want I go down on you, call my name. 070012345677878

Funmi: I no blame you at all, better go find something to do with your life. suck kor, soak-away ni?

Richard: Abeg who get BB charger?

Amaka: U be ashewo!! You need deliverance

Lynda: Sign of Endtime, Anti Christ among us, Please repent

Taofeek: Thunder fire you!! You are a disgrace to womanhood!!

Superman Movies: Batman Character In Man Of Steel Sequel To Be Played By Ben Aflack
Superman Movies: Batman Character In Man Of Steel Sequel To Be Played By Ben Aflack

Ben Affleck one of J-Lo's ex will be playing superhero but not for Jennifer Lopez. Ben will be donning the Batman's cape and cowl in the Man of Steel sequel. Did it ever cross your mind? Now the whole web is on fire searching Ben Afleck Batman, Ben Afleck New Batman, etc. I was surprised too sort of.

According to Warner Bros. 41-year-old actor-director will star as a new incarnation of the Dark Knight in a film bringing Batman and Superman together.

The studio said Affleck will star opposite 30-year-old Henry Cavill, who will reprise his role as Superman from "Man of Steel." The movie will also feature "Man of Steel" stars Amy Adams as Lois Lane, Laurence Fishburne as Perry White and Diane Lane as Martha Kent.

The big-screen DC Comics superhero mash-up was first revealed by director Zack Snyder at last month's Comic-Con International in San Diego.

Snyder, who will direct the sequel written by "Man of Steel" screenwriter David S. Goyer, said in a statement that Affleck will provide an "interesting counter-balance" to Cavill's Clark Kent.

"(Affleck) has the acting chops to create a layered portrayal of a man who is older and wiser than Clark Kent and bears the scars of a seasoned crime fighter, but retain the charm that the world sees in billionaire Bruce Wayne," said Snyder. "I can't wait to work with him."

Production on the as-yet-untitled film is expected to begin in 2014 for release July 17, 2015.

It won't be Affleck's first time in superhero garb. He played a blind Marvel crime fighter in 2003's "Daredevil" and portrayed 1950s Superman actor George Reeves in 2006's "Hollywoodland."

STAND OUT! BY PASTOR E. A. ADEBOYE

Memorise:
Wherefore come out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the Lord, and touch not the unclean thing; and I will receive you, 2 Corinthians 6:17

Read:
Acts 19:11-12
And God wrought special miracles by the hands of Paul: Acts 19:11

So that from his body were brought unto the sick handkerchiefs or aprons, and the diseases departed from them, and the evil spirits went out of them. Acts 19:12

Open Heavens Devotional Message
There are people who have gone through the best of theological institutions and have been certified and recognised by men, but they are nowhere to be found among God’s favourites because they have not drawn closer to God as He expects of them. May you be among the divine eagles! However, among eagles, there are stand-out eagles. Acts 5:12-16 says special miracles were performed by the hands of some eagles while others only experienced ordinary miracles. All the apostles were eagles but only Peter had his shadow healing the sick.

One of my very young children returned from Sunday school one day and asked: ‘Dad, do you really know the Bible?’ ‘I know the Bible very well I replied’. Then he said ‘Who is Prochorus?’ I told him I don’t know that person. ‘What about Nicanor?’ Then I asked, ‘Is that in the Bible?’ He further asked, ‘what about Timon?’ ‘Do you mean Simeon?’ He said no. so I said ‘I don’t know what you are talking about’. ‘But Dad, I thought you said you know the Bible; these are among the seven deacons in the early church’. I said, ‘God have mercy on them because I only know Stephen and Philip’. I obviously lost sight of the others because they were hardly ever mentioned afterwards, whereas Stephen and Philip were shinning stars as God’s favourites.

Believe it or not, some Christians may never taste of the level of special miracles that Paul saw God doing through him in Acts 19:11-12. To become a divine favourite, there is a price to pay. First, you must be prepared to separate from every unclean thing (2 Corinthians 6:14-18). Nobody can become outstanding if he or she is unwilling to stand out. While pigeons gather together, eagles fly alone. You cannot afford to do things the way others are doing them if you want to become God’s favourite. Others may overeat or oversleep but you cannot afford such luxury because of where you are going. Are you ready to pay the price to become His favourite?

Bible In One Year:
Revelations 10-12
Prayer Point
Father, everything that will work against my standing out, separate them from my life today.

Beyond The Bargain – RCCG Open Heavens Devotional Thursday 22nd August 2013
Beyond The Bargain – RCCG Open Heavens Devotional Thursday 22nd August 2013
BEYOND THE BARGAIN BY PASTOR E. A. ADEBOYE

Memorise:
Then when lust hath conceived, it bringeth forth sin: and sin, when it is finished, bringeth forth death. James 1:15

Read:
John 12:1-6

Then Jesus six days before the passover came to Bethany, where Lazarus was which had been dead, whom he raised from the dead. John 12:1

There they made him a supper; and Martha served: but Lazarus was one of them that sat at the table with him. John 12:2

Then took Mary a pound of ointment of spikenard, very costly, and anointed the feet of Jesus, and wiped his feet with her hair: and the house was filled with the odour of the ointment. John 12:3

Then saith one of his disciples, Judas Iscariot, Simon's son, which should betray him, John 12:4

Why was not this ointment sold for three hundred pence, and given to the poor? John 12:5

This he said, not that he cared for the poor; but because he was a thief, and had the bag, and bare what was put therein. John 12:6

Open Heavens Devotional Message
Gehazi was being prepared to be a highly anointed man of God but he was busy chasing after wealth and riches. He got what he wanted and even beyond it. If you are pursuing wealth, you will get more than you bargained for. It is one thing to acquire wealth but another thing to live to spend it. The only blessing that will make you rich without adding sorrow is the blessing that comes from God. If you are stealing or doing illegal business, even before you die, it will take its toll on you. Gehazi got the money but he also got the disease that Naaman was prepared to pay any amount to get rid of. He could not enjoy his reward of iniquity and he brought leprosy to his generation.

You cannot tell where that seemingly little sin could lead you. All that David wanted to do that day as he saw Uriah’s naked wife, was just to have sex, but he got more than he bargained for. That sin was just the beginning of several more sins and it brought a lasting curse upon David’s family. You can tell the beginning of a sin but you may not be able to tell its end. When Judas Iscariot was pursuing money, little did he know that it could make him to sell his master, lead to suicide and cause him to be abhorred eternally. Be mindful of your steps.

Are you thinking of stealing from the offerings of the church? You will be biting more than you can chew! Are you secretly planning to commit fornication or adultery? Did you say it will only be once and you will never try it again? The truth is, that single act of sin will surely attract others in quick succession and each will come with their repercussions. When you avoid committing a sin, you keep yourself from several unpleasant consequences. If you do not want an evil harvest, steer clear of sin – no matter how small, seemingly hurt free or secretive it appears. You cannot effectively hide sin no matter how smart you are.

Bible In One Year:
Acts 10-12

Key Point
Behind sin are terrible consequences. Every sin you avoid, you save yourself, family and generations multitudes of evils.

How Profitable Are You? – RCCG Open Heavens of Wednesday 21st August 2013
How Profitable Are You? – RCCG Open Heavens of Wednesday 21st August 2013
HOW PROFITABLE ARE YOU? BY PASTOR E. A. ADEBOYE

Memorise:
Take therefore the talent from him, and give it unto him which hath ten talents. Matthew 25:28

Read:
Matthew 25:24-30

(Matthew 25:24) Then he which had received the one talent came and said, Lord, I knew thee that thou art an hard man, reaping where thou hast not sown, and gathering where thou hast not strawed

(Matthew 25:25) And I was afraid, and went and hid thy talent in the earth: lo, there thou hast that is thine.

(Matthew 25:26) His lord answered and said unto him, Thou wicked and slothful servant, thou knewest that I reap where I sowed not, and gather where I have not strawed:

(Matthew 25:27) Thou oughtest therefore to have put my money to the exchangers, and then at my coming I should have received mine own with usury.

(Matthew 25:28) Take therefore the talent from him, and give it unto him which hath ten talents.

(Matthew 25:29) For unto every one that hath shall be given, and he shall have abundance: but from him that hath not shall be taken away even that which he hath.

(Matthew 25:30) And cast ye the unprofitable servant into outer darkness: there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth. 

Open Heavens Devotional Message
Believers have different endowment of grace from God. God has given us different talents. It is one thing to have a talent and another thing to use it. In Acts 8:5-8, Philip shone for the Lord and brought joy to a city. How many individuals, families or communities have you delivered joy to? If one man with the same Holy Spirit you have can deliver joy to a city, you have no excuse for not being a source of joy to others. On the other hand, if light fails to shine, darkness will take over. If you consider the aftermath of not trading with the talent given in the parable of the talents, no believer in his or her right mind will like to go through such (Matthew 25:28-30). Instead of a commendation, the unprofitable servant received a rebuke. May the Lord not rebuke you for neglecting your talent!

Besides rebuke, the servant who received one talent lost it to his colleague who traded with his. Do you now that apart from eternity, some believers can lose their talents to fellow believers on earth? This is one reason to use whatever God has given you in a most productive way to glorify Him. If God is totally glorified in the way you use the resources He has given you, there will be no need to give it to someone else. Today, there are many believers who once had certain talents or abilities but because they failed to use them well, the grace to operate such divine endowments was withdrawn; they can only point to other people they see using the talents they once had. That shall not be your portion in Jesus name!

The servant was tagged an unprofitable servant. Can God call you a profitable servant? What kind of profit has your presence and involvement brought to the Kingdom of God? Finally, the servant has to share eternity with unbelievers. In other words, if your salvation through the blood of Jesus cannot benefit God’s Kingdom, one can still end up in hell. May you end up in Heaven! Rise up, dust your talents and begin to use them from now.

HOW PROFITABLE ARE YOU? BY PASTOR E. A. ADEBOYE

Memorise:
Take therefore the talent from him, and give it unto him which hath ten talents. Matthew 25:28

Read:
Matthew 25:24-30

(Matthew 25:24) Then he which had received the one talent came and said, Lord, I knew thee that thou art an hard man, reaping where thou hast not sown, and gathering where thou hast not strawed

(Matthew 25:25) And I was afraid, and went and hid thy talent in the earth: lo, there thou hast that is thine.

(Matthew 25:26) His lord answered and said unto him, Thou wicked and slothful servant, thou knewest that I reap where I sowed not, and gather where I have not strawed:

(Matthew 25:27) Thou oughtest therefore to have put my money to the exchangers, and then at my coming I should have received mine own with usury.

(Matthew 25:28) Take therefore the talent from him, and give it unto him which hath ten talents.

(Matthew 25:29) For unto every one that hath shall be given, and he shall have abundance: but from him that hath not shall be taken away even that which he hath.

On Motion – RCCG Open Heavens of Tuesday 20th August 2013
On Motion – RCCG Open Heavens of Tuesday 20th August 2013
ON MOTION BY PASTOR E. A. ADEBOYE

Memorise:
But they that wait upon the LORD shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint. Isaiah 40:31

Read:
Isaiah 40:28-31
(Isaiah 40:28) Hast thou not known? hast thou not heard, that the everlasting God, the LORD, the Creator of the ends of the earth, fainteth not, neither is weary? there is no searching of his understanding.

(Isaiah 40:29) He giveth power to the faint; and to them that have no might he increaseth strength.

(Isaiah 40:30) Even the youths shall faint and be weary, and the young men shall utterly fall:

But they that wait upon the LORD shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they (Isaiah 40:31) shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint.

Open Heavens Devotional Message
There are seven categories of motion. The first is total stagnation which indicates a state of no motion. In Mark 2:1-12, we read of a paralysed man who could not do anything for himself except someone else helped him. He was in a state of total stagnation. This is the worst state of motion. Some people are in that state. No matter their efforts, their situation remains the same. In other words, it appears there is nothing they can do to change the situation.

If you are in this state, the Lord will reach out to you in Jesus name. That force or power that is keeping you on the same spot is paralysed now. For some people, the evil people spiritually manipulated their destinies never to leave where they have been. No matter how old some people become, they keep dreaming of their primary or secondary school days, or see themselves serving in the hose of a particular uncle, aunt, or relation where they lived many years ago. They have been tied to their past and are not meant to leave their past. Every evil tie to your unpleasant past is destroyed today in Jesus name. You are set free to fulfil your destiny.

Crawling is the next category of motion after motionlessness. In John 9:1-7, we read of a man who was born blind. Whenever he had to go somewhere, he could not move fast for lack of sight. At this stage, there is motion but it is very limited and slow. Are you experiencing slow progress? If you labour so much but have little result to show for it, then you are crawling. If what is taking others one year to achieve is taking you 10 years, you are crawling. Today, in the name of Jesus, I speak forth divine speed into your motion! You shall make quick progress henceforth.

Bible In One Year:
Acts 3-5

Prayer Point
Every evil tie to my negative past, be broken in Jesus name.

He Judges His Ministers – RCCG Open Heavens Of Monday 19th August 2013
He Judges His Ministers – RCCG Open Heavens Of Monday 19th August 2013
HE JUDGES HIS MINISTERS BY PASTOR E. A. ADEBOYE

Memorise:
For we must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ; that every one may receive the things done in his body, according to that he hath done, whether it be good or bad. 2 Corinthians 5:10

Read:
Numbers 12:1-10

(Numbers 12:1) And Miriam and Aaron spake against Moses because of the Ethiopian woman whom he had married: for he had married an Ethiopian woman.

(Numbers 12:2) And they said, Hath the LORD indeed spoken only by Moses? hath he not spoken also by us? And the LORD heard it.

(Numbers 12:3) (Now the man Moses was very meek, above all the men which were upon the face of the earth.)

(Numbers 12:4) And the LORD spake suddenly unto Moses, and unto Aaron, and unto Miriam, Come out ye three unto the tabernacle of the congregation. And they three came out.

(Numbers 12:5) And the LORD came down in the pillar of the cloud, and stood in the door of the tabernacle, and called Aaron and Miriam: and they both came forth.

(Numbers 12:6) And he said, Hear now my words: If there be a prophet among you, I the LORD will make myself known unto him in a vision, and will speak unto him in a dream.

(Numbers 12:7) My servant Moses is not so, who is faithful in all mine house.

(Numbers 12:8) With him will I speak mouth to mouth, even apparently, and not in dark speeches; and the similitude of the LORD shall he behold: wherefore then were ye not afraid to speak against my servant Moses?

(Numbers 12:9) And the anger of the LORD was kindled against them; and he departed.

(Numbers 12:10) And the cloud departed from off the tabernacle; and, behold, Miriam became leprous, white as snow: and Aaron looked upon Miriam, and, behold, she was leprous.

Open Heavens Devotional Message
Many people view wisdom from different angles. But if we were to use the fear of God as the yardstick for measuring wisdom, then you can be very certain we have quite a number of foolish people among us. Psalm 111:10 says,

“The fear of the LORD is the beginning of wisdom: a good understanding have all they that do his commandments: his praise endureth for ever.”

Not many of us fear God – even ministers of God! We fear our bosses in our work places. We fear those who approve contracts for us. We fail to fear the One who should be our fear and dread (Isaiah 8:13). Can you believe that some ministers of God find it difficult to join the congregation in praising God? At praise or worship time, you will find some of them standing straight and looking in a sanctimonious way as if they have forgotten that the day they became ministers of God, they were placed right in God's palms. If God wants to deal with His ministers, He does not need to search for them; all He needs to do is close His hands.

Do you say you are a worker or minister and you still tell lies? Do you steal? Do you falsify reports or approve reports that you know are not true? Remember God is seeing you. Do you know that many titled orthodox ministers fear God more than we so called Pentecostals; this is why many scandals are rife in our midst than theirs. If you do not know anything about God, do know that He is a Consuming fire. He is quiet because He is so powerful.

When a river is shallow, it makes a lot of noise. In Numbers 12:1-16, when Miriam and Aaron spoke against Moses, God summoned the three of them and asked the offenders why they were not afraid to speak against His faithful servant. God left in anger without doing anything, yet as soon as He left, Miriam was covered with leprosy. What if He had decided to do something, would Miriam have survived it? Ministers of God, God still judges His servants. Tread carefully and fear Him.

Bible In One Year:


Key Point
Like any of God's children, ministers of God will give account to God, but God will use a higher standard for them as much is expected of them.

Let Your Hope Arise – RCCG Open Heavens Devotional Sunday 18th August 2013
Let Your Hope Arise – RCCG Open Heavens Devotional Sunday 18th August 2013
LET YOUR HOPE ARISE BY PASTOR E. A. ADEBOYE

Memorise:
Which hope we have as an anchor of the soul, both sure and stedfast, and which entereth into that within the veil; Hebrews 6:19

Read:
1 Samuel 1:9-18

(1 Samuel 1:9)  So Hannah rose up after they had eaten in Shiloh, and after they had drunk. Now Eli the priest sat upon a seat by a post of the temple of the LORD.

(1 Samuel 1:10)  And she was in bitterness of soul, and prayed unto the LORD, and wept sore.

(1 Samuel 1:11)  And she vowed a vow, and said, O LORD of hosts, if thou wilt indeed look on the affliction of thine handmaid, and remember me, and not forget thine handmaid, but wilt give unto thine handmaid a man child, then I will give him unto the LORD all the days of his life, and there shall no razor come upon his head.

(1 Samuel 1:12)  And it came to pass, as she continued praying before the LORD, that Eli marked her mouth.

(1 Samuel 1:13)  Now Hannah, she spake in her heart; only her lips moved, but her voice was not heard: therefore Eli thought she had been drunken.

(1 Samuel 1Sa 1:14)  And Eli said unto her, How long wilt thou be drunken? put away thy wine from thee.

(1 Samuel 1:15)  And Hannah answered and said, No, my lord, I am a woman of a sorrowful spirit: I have drunk neither wine nor strong drink, but have poured out my soul before the LORD.

(1 Samuel 1:16)  Count not thine handmaid for a daughter of Belial: for out of the abundance of my complaint and grief have I spoken hitherto.

(1 Samuel 1:17)  Then Eli answered and said, Go in peace: and the God of Israel grant thee thy petition that thou hast asked of him.

(1 Samuel 1:18)  And she said, Let thine handmaid find grace in thy sight. So the woman went her way, and did eat, and her countenance was no more sad.

Open Heavens Devotional Message
Certain events take place at some point in one's life which causes one's hope to soar. This season, your hope will soar. In 1 Samuel 1:9-18, Hannah had been going to Shiloh and had been praying without receiving any change in her situation. She was probably never noticed. But one day, while praying, the man of God noticed her but misjudged her – taking her for a drunkard; by the time she explained herself, the man of God asked God to grant her request. From that moment, Hannah was no longer sad; she was free with everybody and happy because suddenly her hope began to rise. Even though she was yet to see the manifestation of her miracle, she had however experienced an incident that had convinced her beyond reasonable doubts that the tide will surely turn.

Similarly, in Mark 10:46-52, blind Bartimaeus had been staying at the same road side begging for years without receiving the help he so much needed, until one day, the Helper of the helpless passed by. As he began to shout out the name of Jesus, he heard someone say, 'Be of good cheer, Jesus is calling you'. On hearing that good news, his hope arose. The king of glory was about to pass judgment on his problem of many years. Yes, his hope soared high even though he was not yet healed. He threw away his garment and headed for the Lord because something told him that at last, his tide was about to turn.

Also, in Acts 3:1-8, the lame man had begged from the same location for several years until he gave up hope of ever receiving any healing other than alms. But one day, the same men who had always given him alms came by and as usual, he asked and they said to him, 'Focus on us'. As he looked on them, he saw the glory of God. At that point, hope arose in his heart to receive something of them. It does not matter how long you have been at that particular bus stop of your life, the Lord is passing your way this season. Let your hope arise today, be full of expectation of his touch because the tide is about to turn in your favour.

Bible In One Year:


Action Point
Worship the Lord throughout today and thank Him for your expected turn around.

Do Something To Be Something – RCCG Open Heavens of Friday 16th August 2013
DO SOMETHING TO BE SOMETHING BY PASTOR E. A. ADEBOYE

Memorise:
Whoso keepeth the fig tree shall eat the fruit thereof: so he that waiteth on his master shall be honoured. Proverbs 27:18

Read:
2 Kings 2:1-8

(2 Kings 2:1) And it came to pass, when the LORD would take up Elijah into heaven by a whirlwind, that Elijah went with Elisha from Gilgal.

(2 Kings 2:2) And Elijah said unto Elisha, Tarry here, I pray thee; for the LORD hath sent me to Bethel. And Elisha said unto him, As the LORD liveth, and as thy soul liveth, I will not leave thee. So they went down to Bethel.

Do you know that you can go through this world without your impact being felt? Surprisingly, this is the experience of most people all through their lives; they lived without being noticed. If you look at the scriptures, you will find quite some names which were mentioned once or twice in the bible which never amounted to anything in God’s Kingdom. May that not be your portion! During state functions, while special attention is given to important dignitaries such as governors, ambassadors, ministers, commissioners, etc. every other person will be classified and received in the common place. For such people, it really does not matter to the organisers of the function whether they are entertained or not.

The reason some people will never become God’s favourite is that even when they have the potential, they refuse to develop it. They have the wings but just refuse to fly. In 2 Kings 2:1-15, it was common knowledge that Elijah, the nation’s prophet and spiritual head was about to be taken to Heaven. All the sons of the prophets in the prophetic school knew of this, yet they refuse to fly. Only Elisha acted on that information and he became a divine eagle. Before that transition, many sons of the prophets in the prophetic school looked down on Elisha. They saw him no more than a servant that he was. He was not schooled in theology like they were. He was not certified like they were.

They were recognized as prophets-to-be but he was only a messenger. Even on the day of Elijah’s transition, when they saw Elisha, they flaunted the spiritual information at their disposal: ‘Hi messenger, do you know that you are about to be separated from your master today?’ it is not impossible that some of them really desired to take over from Elijah but they did nothing about it. At the end, after a receipt of the double portion of the spirit upon Elijah, they bowed to Elisha having seen the evidence that he was now carrying twice what his master once carried. Doing nothing simply takes you nowhere.
