March 27, 2019 Seeds of Destiny 27 March 2019 Devotional – Avoiding the Lifestyle of Lukewarmness

Seeds of Destiny 27 March 2019 Devotional – Avoiding the Lifestyle of Lukewarmness

[ad_1]

Topic: Avoiding the Lifestyle of Lukewarmness [Seeds of Destiny 27 March 2019 Devotional]

God is calling you to resist the lifestyle of lukewarmness by being dedicated to Him.

SCRIPTURE: So then because thou art lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will spue thee out of my mouth. Revelation 3:16.

THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: God is calling you to resist the lifestyle of lukewarmness by being dedicated to Him.

It has been confirmed that the lifestyle of lukewarmness is an enemy of destiny. When a person is lukewarm, he is neither hot nor cold, and when a person is not hot or cold, our anchor Scripture reveals that God would spew such a person from His Mouth (Revelation 3:16). This means, God does not associate with lukewarm Christians. Therefore, it very important to avoid the lifestyle of lukewarmness.

Now, how can we avoid the lifestyle of lukewarmness?

i. By the possession of spiritual intensity, fervency and vibrancy

To resist the lifestyle of lukewarmness means the possession of spiritual intensity, fervency and vibrancy. One who is on fire for God does not need anyone to follow him up in order to go to church; there is no room for lukewarmness, lethargy or passivity in his life.

ii. By existence as a mobile revival

To exist as a mobile revival is to resist the lifestyle of lukewarmness. When you are on fire for God, everywhere you arrive, something happens because you are revival in motion. There is something about your appearance or your face that makes someone want to pray or be holy. Your appearance carries convicting power.

Beloved, God is calling you to resist the lifestyle of lukewarmness by being dedicated to Him. Dedicated people have a spiritual life that challenges and imparts others; their spiritual life is a motivation to others. You can never classify them as lukewarm. You do not beg a dedicated person to worship, pray or fast. This is the kind of dedication that makes God to prove Himself in the life of a person. Therefore, make up your mind not to be lukewarm in life.

Remember this: God is calling you to resist the lifestyle of lukewarmness by being dedicated to Him.

ASSIGNMENTS:

Make up your mind to possess spiritual intensity, fervency and vibrancy always.Exist as a mobile revival.

PRAYER: O Lord, I receive the grace to possess spiritual intensity, fervency and vibrancy always. Help me to exist as a mobile revival, Lord in Jesus’ Name.

God’s Promise of Fruitfulness (Part 4) By Pastor Faith Oyedepo

Topic: God’s Promise of Fruitfulness (Part 4)

Dear Reader,

Today, we shall be exploring on the topic ‘Having and Raising Godly Children’. Every child needs to undergo a process of moulding when he or she is instructed and drilled in preparation for the contest of life. In other words, every child needs training. Why? Simply because God is in search of a godly seed, and the only way to arrive at having godly seed is through training.

The Bible speaking to the couple says: Yet is she thy companion, and the wife of thy covenant. And did not he make one? Yet had he the residue of the spirit. And wherefore one? That he might seek a godly seed. Therefore take heed to your spirit, and let none deal treacherously against the wife of his youth (Malachi 2: 14-15). For us to make a difference as parents, we must learn the act of not only having but also raising children unto the Lord – Godly children who will live and take their generations for Christ.

No one comes into the world by chance. For every human creation of God (male or female), there is a purpose for him or her. We must be ready, therefore as caretakers of God’s creature, to discharge our duties with utmost care and according to the pattern, even as God Himself would have done it. I believe, therefore, that this article will be a useful tool for both the singles and the married.

For the singles, you have the additional privilege of having all the aces in your hands before you actually begin the experience. If you are young now, remember, one day it will be your turn to marry and begin to raise a family. You need the wisdom of God. If you know these things now, and you set yourself to applying them, then the Bible says, happy will you be. The Word of God never grows old. For those who are about to get married, as you look forward to a Godly man coming your way, also begin to plan and get ready for raising Godly children. We must see the ways of God as higher than our own ways and also better and more result-producing if we must find rest for our souls. For the grannies, the Bible commands to ‘teach the younger women‘ (Titus 2:4). Let us learn and pass Godly instructions to the future generation so that our world will be a better place. May the good Lord give us all understanding!

The Word of God can never fail. He doesn’t speak idle words. Our life and future depend on it. As parents, it is important that we understand how God sees our children because until we do, we cannot show them the exact direction to go. What is God’s perspective of our children?

Children are God’s heritage

The Bible says: Lo, children are a heritage of the LORD: and the fruit of the womb is his reward (Psalms.127:3). As far as God is concerned, children are His heritage. The word heritage means inheritance. Just as divine health is part of your inheritance in redemption, so are children. Just the same way you will react against sickness and disease, knowing that it is the devil trying to rob you of your inheritance, you must react against barrenness.

The devil comes to you in the thoughts of your mind and tells you there’s no way you can have children. Don’t start weeping, No! You have what it takes to stand your ground and tell him, “Devil, to hell with you! Children are the heritage of the Lord, not you. They are part of my inheritance in redemption. You can’t rob me of my inheritance. Now lose your grip!” I assure you that despite any negative medical report, you will carry your own children in your hands! You can stand your ground and God will honour your faith! In case the devil has made you shed secret tears because you are yet to have children, I want you to settle this in your heart that God has more than enough children for you and He will not deny you the privilege of carrying your own children!

Children are in His agenda

God must see children as important, otherwise, they would not have played an important role in His agenda, right from the beginning. Look at Samuel, as a child, he had begun to hear and understand the voice of God. What about David? It was as a youth (not an adult) that he killed Goliath. Then what would you say about Jesus? By the time He was twelve, the Bible says He was already in the temple, reasoning with doctors of the law. So, as a child, He was already in God’s agenda. All over the Scripture, children have always played an important role in the agenda of God. That is why I know that there is a place in God’s agenda for your children. Please allow them to fit into that.

Jesus Blessed Them

One further proof that God sees our children as very important is found in the life of Jesus. Jesus spent a great part of His ministry blessing children (helping, healing, raising dead children, etc.) If Jesus spent time blessing them, why do you see yours as a curse? The Bible records in Matthew 19:13-15: Then were there brought unto him little children, that he should put his hands on them, and pray: and the disciples rebuked them. But Jesus said, Suffer little children, and forbid them not, to come unto me: for of such is the kingdom of heaven. And he laid his hands on them.

Jesus not only carried the children and blessed them, But He also taught His disciples to respect them! So, children too deserve respect. What is wrong in saying sorry to them when you offend them? That word of apology may look small but those children never forget. But if you keep hurting them and never say sorry, you may think that they have forgotten but even after many years, the pain will still be there. If the disciples had to learn to respect children, so must you, because the children of today are the generation of adults tomorrow! Children are therefore not nonentities! They are young human beings. If you have this perspective of them, you will be able to train them more effectively.

It takes being a child of God to truly comprehend and understand the place of a child in God’s agenda. If you are not yet born again and you would like to, please pray this simple prayer: Having a Christian home begins with accepting Jesus Christ as your Lord and Saviour. Dear Lord Jesus Christ, I come to You today. I am a sinner. Forgive me my sins and cleanse me with Your Blood. I accept You as my Lord and personal Saviour. Make me a child of God today. Thank You for delivering me from sin and satan to serve the living God and thank You for accepting me into Your Kingdom.

Congratulations! If you prayed this simple prayer of faith with me, you are now born again and a child of God. He loves you and will never leave you. Read your Bible daily, obey God’s Word and seek Christian fellowship (John 14:21).

With this, you are guaranteed all-round rest and peace in Jesus’ Name! Call or write to share your testimonies with me through contact@faithoyedepo.org, 07026385437 OR 08141320204.

Billy Graham Devotional 27 March 2019 – The Greatest Act of Humility

Topic: The Greatest Act of Humility [Billy Graham Devotional 27 March 2019]

. . . he that shall humble himself shall be exalted. — Matthew 23:12

In almost every instance in the Bible, as well as in life, pride is associated with failure, not success. We hear a great deal about the inferiority complex, but the superiority complex of pride is seldom spoken of. It was pride that caused the fall of Lucifer, and he became Satan, the devil. It was pride that led King Saul down to a shameful and untimely death. It was pride that caused Peter to deny his Lord.

The greatest act of humility in the history of the universe was when Jesus Christ stooped to die on the cross of Calvary. And before any man can get to heaven, he must kneel at the foot of the cross and acknowledge that he is a sinner, that he has broken the Ten Commandments of God, and that he needs the grace of God in Christ. No man can come proudly to the Savior.

Prayer for the day: Lord Jesus, You suffered such humiliation and pain for me on the cross. I ask You, humbly, to forgive my pride and errant ways that nailed You there.

TOPIC: When The King Seems Lost

READ: Songs of Solomon 3:1-11 King James Version (KJV)

1 By night on my bed I sought him whom my soul loveth: I sought him, but I found him not.

2 I will rise now, and go about the city in the streets, and in the broad ways I will seek him whom my soul loveth: I sought him, but I found him not.

3 The watchmen that go about the city found me: to whom I said, Saw ye him whom my soul loveth?

4 It was but a little that I passed from them, but I found him whom my soul loveth: I held him, and would not let him go, until I had brought him into my mother’s house, and into the chamber of her that conceived me.

5 I charge you, O ye daughters of Jerusalem, by the roes, and by the hinds of the field, that ye stir not up, nor awake my love, till he please.

6 Who is this that cometh out of the wilderness like pillars of smoke, perfumed with myrrh and frankincense, with all powders of the merchant?

7 Behold his bed, which is Solomon’s; threescore valiant men are about it, of the valiant of Israel.

8 They all hold swords, being expert in war: every man hath his sword upon his thigh because of fear in the night.

9 King Solomon made himself a chariot of the wood of Lebanon.

10 He made the pillars thereof of silver, the bottom thereof of gold, the covering of it of purple, the midst thereof being paved with love, for the daughters of Jerusalem.

11 Go forth, O ye daughters of Zion, and behold king Solomon with the crown wherewith his mother crowned him in the day of his espousals, and in the day of the gladness of his heart.

THE MESSAGE:

The terrible things happening in the world today often make people to wonder whether God is still in control. Again, faithful believers often face challenges of unemployment, barrenness, sickness, poverty, bondages, business downswings, erring children, etc., making it seem as if God is lost.’ Such believers spend time with Jesus but fail to find Him like the bride in time of their need (verse 1).

The response of the bride in this passage is a lesson for us during such trying times. In verse two, she decided to find her king and she remained resolute even when she could not find him (verse 2). She also asked about her King from watchmen who could not provide satisfactory answers. Undeterred, she continued her search till she found him in verse 4, held him and brought him into her mother’s house.

Do you abandon or look for God during trying periods? Do you meet the right people for godly counsel? Do you ensure that the testimony of your miracle when it happens is an avenue to touch members of your family or friends? Learn from the bride who brought the King to her mother’s house. Hold on in spite of the prolonged silence of heaven till your miracle occurs. Your testimonies will transform lives in Jesus’ Name.

Prayer: Lord help me not to waiver in trying times but to hold on till my miracle manifests to change lives around me in Jesus’ Name, Amen.

God’s Kind Of Love – Andrew Wommack Devotional 27 March 2019

[ad_1]

Topic: God’s Kind of Love [Andrew Wommack Devotional 27 March 2019]

Matthew 8:9-10, “For I am a man under authority, having soldiers under me: and I say to this man, Go, and he goeth; and to another, Come, and he cometh; and to my servant, Do this, and he doeth it. When Jesus heard it he marvelled, and said to them that followed, Verily I say unto you, I have not found so great faith, no, not in Israel.”

Text: Matthew 8:5-13, Luke 7:1-10

There were only two things in all of scripture that caused Jesus to marvel. They were (1) the Centurion’s faith and (2) the Jews’ unbelief (Mk. 6:6). A faith that made Jesus, who is the author and finisher of our faith, marvel is worth examining. This centurion believed that the spoken word of Jesus was sufficient to produce his miracle. He didn’t need Jesus to come to his house. He had faith in Jesus’ word. Therefore, we can see that the person who simply believes the written Word of God is operating in a much higher form of faith than those who require additional proof. Compare this centurion’s faith with the “little” faith of Thomas in John 20:24-29!

Thomas refused to believe what He couldn’t see or feel. Our five senses were given to us by God and are necessary to help us function in this life. But if we do not renew our minds to acknowledge the limits of the five senses, they will keep us from believing. Faith can perceive things that the senses cannot (Heb. 11:1).

The type of faith that Thomas operated in was a human or natural faith that was based on what he could see. Jesus said there was a greater blessing to be obtained. That greater blessing comes from using a supernatural, God-kind of faith that is based only on God’s Word.

Jesus and God’s Word are one (Jn 1:1, 14). Believing God’s Word is not just putting your trust in some printed words on the pages of a book we call the Bible. There is much more involved. It is a relationship with a person, the person behind the words. Get to know Him through His Word.
