Kenneth Copeland Devotional 27 March 2019 – From Believing to Perceiving

[ad_1]

Topic: From Believing to Perceiving [Kenneth Copeland Devotional 27 March 2019]

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

The Bible calls us kings and priests (Revelation 1:6) and world overcomers (1 John 5:4). But for most of us, those are just phrases. They haven’t become real to us. That’s why the devil’s been able to hoodwink us into living lives of defeat. It hasn’t actually dawned on us who we really are.

If you’ll look in 1 Chronicles 14, you’ll see that David had a similar problem. He’d been anointed king by the prophet Samuel when he was just a teenager. He’d known for years that someday he’d rule over Israel. Yet somehow, it hadn’t really sunk in.

But look what happens in verse 2: “And David perceived that the Lord had confirmed him king over Israel, for his kingdom was lifted up on high, because of his people Israel.” Finally, it dawned on him! David perceived that the Lord had confirmed him king. I can just imagine David saying to himself, I’m king. I’m actually king! I am king! At that moment, being king ceased to be something David had only thought about. It became something he really was. He could see himself king.

What does that have to do with you and me? Much like David, you and I have been given a royal office. We’re just having a hard time believing it. But until we do, we cannot exercise the power or authority that goes with that office.

Say, for example, you’re sick. You can yell, “By His stripes I’m healed,” 50 times a day. You can hope for healing. You can try to believe for healing till your hair turns gray. But if you don’t really perceive yourself as whole and healthy in Christ Jesus, if you don’t see yourself as “the healed” instead of “the sick,” you won’t get any supernatural help. Yet once that realization hits you that you are, in fact, “the healed,” no one—not even the devil himself—will be able to keep you from getting well.

Don’t let the devil hoodwink you any longer. Step over the line from trying to believe to actually knowing by dwelling on the Word of God. Read it and think about it. Practice seeing yourself through the eyes of the Word until the reality of your royalty in Christ rises up in you!

TREM Devotional 27 March 2019 – Celebrate Your Expectations

[ad_1]

Topic: Celebrate Your Expectations [TREM Devotional 27 March 2019]

“Now whatever city or town you enter, inquire who in it is worthy, and stay there till you go out. And when you go into a household, greet it. If the household is worthy, let your peace come upon it. But if it is not worthy, let your peace return to you. And whoever will not receive you nor hear your words, when you depart from that house or city, shake off the dust from your feet.” – Matthew 10:11-14 NKJV

In the above scripture, Jesus sent His disciples to the neighbouring towns and villages and told them to dwell in any place that celebrated their coming or else leave the place. The analogy from this scripture is that whatever you do not receive and celebrate will inevitably exit your life. I have come to challenge you not to allow anything make you disbelieve God. Remember He did not call you to seek Him in vain.

If you’ve ever waited on the Lord, then learn to roll out the drums and celebrate your expectations. You need to consciously celebrate that healing, that new job, that new contract, that breakthrough even when you have not seen anything yet.

Beloved, when you celebrate your expectations, you are demonstrating your faith. You are simply agreeing with all that God has packaged for you. Mary said in Luke 1:38, ‘’Be it unto me according to your word.’’ In other words, she put the responsibility of seeing the prophecy come to pass squarely on God. In addition, celebrate all that God ministered directly to your spirit. Receive the Word and stand upon it until you see it fulfilled.

In this season, you will experience a type of harvest you have never experienced before. Incredible things will happen for you. It is a new season in your life and it is a new day for you. Just be open to the Holy Spirit. He will give you instructions that will move you to the next level. I will hear your testimonies. I bless you in Jesus’ name.

DCLM Daily Manna 27 March 2019 – His Perfect Will

[ad_1]

Topic: His Perfect Will [DCLM Daily Manna 27 March 2019 Daily Devotional by Pastor William Folorunso Kumuyi]

Text: Genesis 27:41-46; 28:1-9 (KJV)

Key Verse: “Arise, go to Padanaram, to the house of Bethuel thy mother’s father; and take thee a wife from thence of the daughters of Laban thy mother’s brother” (Genesis 28:2).

MESSAGE:

God laid the foundation of the institution of marriage in the Garden of Eden. Adam, the first man was oblivious of his own need for a partner. God noticed that and created a woman as a partner for him. Our Lord Jesus validated the act by re-emphasising monogamy as the express will of God for all marriages in His earthly ministry.

The fall of man brought in its wake, degradation of morals and values. The 21st century has ushered in the depth of moral corruption. Polygamy today, is a measure of man’s dexterity and masculinity. Polyandry gives the indication that “what man can do, a woman can outdo him”. Same-sex marriage is an audacious affront to the “nosy” conservatives to mind their own business. Trial marriage by the youths, according to them, is not sin, but an insurance against an uncertain future. Even world famous “Men of God” divorce at will and remarry without anyone blinking an eye. The blueprint of marriage has been discarded by man to his own hurt. The institution of marriage is dire distress.

Isaac was eminently qualified, as a monogamist, to sermonise to Jacob how to “take a wife” from his own people. He could easily remember his father’s charge to Eliezer, his chief of staff, to pick a wife for him from the same location. Abraham and Isaac were aware of the dangerous influence of the Canaanites, and would not leave the marriage of their descendants to chance.

As youngsters prepare for the future, it is essential they fervently pray and seek the face of the Lord for the perfect will of God in marriage. “With God all things are possible.”

Thought For The Day: “One man, one wife for life is the perfect will of God”.

MFM Mountain Top Life Daily Devotional 26 March 2019 By Dr. D.K Olukoya – Dangers of Leaving God Out Of the Calculation (III)

TOPIC: Dangers of Leaving God Out Of the Calculation (III) (Mountain Of Fire and Miracle Ministries, MFM Daily Devotional 27 March 2019)

BIBLE IN ONE YEAR: Judges 1-3; Luke 4:1-30

FIRE SCRIPTURE: Genesis 13:1-7

MEMORY VERSE: “And Abram said unto Lot, Let there be no strife, I pray thee, between me and thee, and between my herdmen and thy herdmen; for we be brethren.” – Genesis 13:8

The MESSAGE:

In the journey of life, there are people you must not meet and there are those you must not miss, if you must achieve your divine destiny. This assertion is even more important when you have a divine call or assignment like Abraham. To ensure you do not miss the right persons and meet the wrong persons, you must consult God in t selection of your team members. This consultation covers all the facets of life including choice marital partner, career, organisation to work for, church denomination to attend, house and environment to live in, friends to keep, etc. The decisions you do not any choice over are matters like your country, village of birth, your parenthood, your gender, your race and all other things exclusively decided by God.

In God’s plan for Abraham, Lot was not included and to make matters worse, Abraham did not bother to ask God if he should go with him. Lot later became a burden rather than a good company to Abraham as soon as he became financially independent. He failed to caution his herdsmen who had the audacity to engage in strife with Abraham’s herdsmen over the struggle for pastures. You begin to wonder how many family fights have been caused by the love of money and struggle over family inheritance. People who used to love each other and enjoy each other will begin to attack each other just to get money, not realising that money cannot buy the blessings that families freely give.

Even though the problem was not an easy one, for it involved land and wealth, yet Abraham confronted it in a unique way. He determined to be a peacemaker and not a troublemaker. It was bad enough that this dispute was between brethren, but even worse, the heathen people of the land were watching and listening. When Christians have disputes, it hurts the testimony of the Lord if unbelievers had to get involved in peace making. Abraham chose to live for others, not for self as he put God first and others next. As the “elder statesman” of the camp, Abraham had every right to decide the issue and tell Lot what to do, but he gave Lot first choice (Romans 12:10). The spiritual Christian does not insist on his or her own rights but gladly yields to others. Abraham is the example of what every believer should do when there are disputes about material things.

Can two walk together, except they be agreed? (Amos 3:3). Abraham chose to bear the brunt of the consequences of his decision over the inclusion of Lot in his company. He let go so that peace could reign Lot, however, demonstrated the behaviour of a natural man who is greedy and covetous. He was comfortable to part ways with Abraham as long as he could get the best location for himself. This explains why we see the alarming rate at which churches split due to the activities of carnal Christians who are not walking with the Lord or with other believers but are merely interested in what would benefit them most.

Abraham lived by faith, not by sight. No matter what Lot did, Abraham was not worried about his future; for he knew that everything was in the hands of the Lord (Psalms 47:4; Matthew 6:33). He had met God at the altar and he knew that everything was under control. When God is first in your life, it makes no difference who is second or last. Lot had a tent but no altar (Genesis 13:5), which meant he did not call on the Lord for wisdom in making decisions (James 1:5). Instead of lifting up his eyes to heaven, Lot lifted up his eyes to the plain of Jordan (Genesis 13:10) and stopped there. The eyes see what the heart loves. Abraham had taken Lot out of Egypt, but he could not take Egypt out of Lot. Outlook helps to determine outcome. Abraham’s eyes were on the holy city of God (Hebrews 11:13-16), and he went on to walk with the Lord and inherit blessings. Lot’s eyes were on the sinful cities of men, and he went on to worldly success, spiritual failure, and a shameful end.

Whenever you get into a near-mess as a result of wrong decisions, face it squarely like Abraham, make necessary sacrifices, and return to the Lord for help and divine direction. May you have the wisdom to choose by faith and not by sight, in Jesus’ name.

MOTIVATIONAL QUOTE: A LIFE WITHOUT CHRIST IS FULL OF CRISIS.

PROPHETIC WORD: Every crisis in your life shall receive divine attention!

PRAYER POINTS:

MORNING

Any Lot in my walk with God, I detach you from my divine call today, in the name of Jesus.O Lord, grant me the wisdom to handle the problems I am facing as a result of the presence of Lot in my life’s journey, in the name of Jesus.O Lord, deliver me from every evil cage, in the name of Jesus. EVENINGO Lord, empower me to let go and let peace be my lot, in the name of Jesus.Lord, give me the right focus in life, in the name of Jesus.Every rebellion in my heart against constituted authority, I cast you out by fire, in the name of Jesus.O Lord, empower me to give up my rights in order to gain Your acceptance, in the name of Jesus.

Confirm That Word – Open Heavens for Teens 27 March 2019

[ad_1]

Topic Confirm That Word [Open Heavens for Teens 27 March 2019]

Memorise: “These were more noble than those in Thessalonica, in that they received the word with all readiness of mind, and searched the scriptures daily, whether those things were so. – Acts 17:11

Read: 2 Corinthians 11:13-15

13.For such are false apostles, deceitful workers, transforming themselves into the apostles of Christ.

14.And no marvel; for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light.

15.Therefore it is no great thing if his ministers also be transformed as the ministers of righteousness; whose end shall be according to their works.

Bible In One Year: Joshua 19-20, Luke 5:17-39

MESSAGE:

More often than not, many teenagers feel that it is easy to be spoon-fed since they are not adults yet. So they wait for everything to be done for them. in school, they take everything their teachers say without reading further. In church or even on television and social media, they take whatever anybody says is in the Bible without reading the Bible themselves to confirm if it is true or not.

You have to understand that your salvation is very personal, hence you have to know God for yourself. You have to become conversant with the Word of God so well that it becomes a habit to go back to it and confirm or further study anything that your Pastor or Sunday school teachers says. It is in doing this that you personalize that word and make it work for you. From Today, whenever a preacher says “The Bible says…”go back to the quoted verses and read it for yourself, then ask the Holy Spirit for a deeper understanding of that verse. More importantly, when someone gives you a spiritual order or directive, don’t just do it, go to the Bible and confirm if it is correct.

Reflection: When last did you do a personal Bible study?

He Settled The Sin-Problem – Rhapsody of Realities 27 March 2019

[ad_1]

Rhapsody of Realities 27 March 2019 By Pastor Chris Oyakhilome – He Settled The Sin-Problem

Topic: He Settled The Sin-Problem

For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord (Romans 6:23).

Some people only think of God’s wrath. They believe He’s fuming at the world from heaven, looking forward to the day He’ll finally execute judgement on man and this sinful world; no! God isn’t concerned about sin as many think. He was concerned about sin, and His concern made Him send Jesus.

Today, the emphasis is no longer on the wages of sin, which is death, but on the gift of God, which is eternal life through Christ Jesus (Romans 6:23). God wants the world to receive the salvation which He already made available in Christ Jesus. The Bible says He’s unwilling that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance (2 Peter 3:9).

When Jesus died on the Cross, the problem of sin was dealt with forever. The death, burial, and resurrection of Jesus Christ brought an end to sin and brought us into the life of righteousness: “For he hath made him to be sin for us, who knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of God in him” (2 Corinthians 5:21).

God isn’t mad at you; He settled the sin-problem in, and through Jesus Christ. Now you can appreciate why He said, “…sin shall not have dominion over you…” (Romans 6:14). What you need do is trust His righteousness; trust what Jesus came to do! You’re the fruit—the result of Christ’s redemptive work. Accept and walk in His righteousness, and live continually in His love, glory, and grace.

2 Corinthians 5:19 says, “To wit, that God was in Christ, reconciling the world unto himself, not imputing their trespasses unto them; and hath committed unto us the word of reconciliation.” Think about it: God isn’t even mad at the sinner, let alone you that are His offspring! Therefore, rejoice and be glad; your heavenly Father loves you, and never holds you accountable for your sins. The Bible says, “…If, when we were enemies, we were reconciled to God by the death of his Son, much more, being reconciled, we shall be saved by his life” (Romans 5:10). How gracious and kind He is!

CONFESSION My heavenly Father loves me; and I serve Him with gladness, pleasing Him in all things! I’m His crown and beauty; His righteousness spreads through me. His grace and love reaches out to the nations through me; I’m His light in a dark world! Through me, the Kingdom of God is established in the earth and in the hearts of men. Praise God forevermore!
