Topic: You need the Holy Spirit (Open Heaven 27 March 2019)

Memorise: “Pray without ceasing.”- 1 Thessalonians 5:17

Read: Matthew 26:37-41 (KJV)

37 And he took with him Peter and the two sons of Zebedee, and began to be sorrowful and very heavy.

38 Then saith he unto them, My soul is exceeding sorrowful, even unto death: tarry ye here, and watch with me.

39 And he went a little further, and fell on his face, and prayed, saying, O my Father, if it be possible, let this cup pass from me: nevertheless not as I will, but as thou wilt.

40 And he cometh unto the disciples, and findeth them asleep, and saith unto Peter, What, could ye not watch with me one hour?

41 Watch and pray, that ye enter not into temptation: the spirit indeed is willing, but the flesh is weak.

Bible in One Year: Philippians 1-4, Jeremiah 6:6-21

Open Heaven 27 March 2019 Wednesday MESSAGE:

Journeying through this world as a Christian in these end times without the help of the Holy Spirit is such an impossible task. Unfortunately, many Christians lack knowledge of the important roles He plays in ensuring that we make it to heaven. Some do not even believe in the baptism of the Holy Spirit. One cannot run the Christian race without having a relationship with God in the place of prayer. The question is, how much prayer is needed to enable us successfully reach the finish line of our heavenly race? From today’s memory verse, the answer is that we ought to pray without ceasing! How is this possible? We do not have the capacity to pray for long periods, nor do we even know how to pray as we ought, so how do we pray without ceasing? Well, it is possible only with the help of our tireless Ally, the Holy Spirit. Revealing this truth, Romans 8:26 says:

“Likewise the Spirit also helpeth our infirmities: for we know not what we should pray for as we ought: but the Spirit itself maketh intercession for us with groanings which cannot be uttered.”

With the realization that the Holy Spirit is needed to make our journey to heaven successful, if I were you, I would desire to have Him on my side at all times. Moreover, you need to be conscious of the fact that the Holy Spirit is a person and not a force. He therefore has emotions! Some things make Him happy, while some things can grieve Him (Isaiah 63:7-14). When He is grieved, He withdraws Himself. For this reason, Ephesians 4:30 says:

“And grieve not the Holy Spirit of God, whereby ye are sealed unto the day of redemption.”

The Holy spirit is grieved when we live contrary to the life and principles of Jesus Christ, who made Him His representative in us till he returns (John 13:14).

Today, as the Lord said to peter in Matthew 26:41, He also says to you:

“Watch and pray, that ye enter not into temptation: the spirit indeed is willing, but the flesh is weak.”

Without the Holy Spirit, you cannot watch and pray effectively, leaving you prone to be overcome by temptations in the face of adversities. God forbid that you fall away from the faith in Jesus’ Name. The antidote to this is effective prayer aided by the Holy Spirit. Today, if you have been baptized in the Holy Spirit, I encourage you to spend some time praying in the Spirit. If you have not partaken of this experience, I encourage you to tarry in God’s presence today and ask the Lord to baptize you in the Holy Spirit. You can also seek the help of a true and trusted member of the Body of Christ to lead you into this free gift of God.

1.Deeper, deeper in the love of Jesus
Daily let me go;
Higher, higher in the school of wisdom,
More of grace to know.

Oh, deeper yet, I pray,
And higher every day,

Take me deeper still,
Till my life is wholly lost in Jesus,
And His perfect will.

3.Deeper, deeper! though it cost hard trials,
Deeper let me go!

Let me fruitful grow.

4.Deeper, higher, every day in Jesus,
Till all conflict past,

Perfected at last.

Holy faith and true;
In His pow’r and soul exulting wisdom
Let me peace pursue.

Topic: God is in Your Corner [Joyce Meyer Devotional 26 March 2019]

Let us then with confidence draw near to the throne of grace, that we may receive mercy and find grace to help in time of need. — Hebrews 4:16

Did you know that God is interested in every single detail of your life and that He loves to hear from you? For years, I felt like I was bothering God with my prayers or, when I did pray, I was certain I wasn’t doing it the right way. However, God never meant for prayer to be complicated.

Prayer is a simple, powerful way to fight the enemy because we release our faith through prayer. When we pray, we open the door for God to come into our problems and situations and work on them.

God desires for us to view prayer as a simple conversation with Him. It’s asking Him to meet our needs or someone else’s. It’s praising Him and thanking Him. It’s talking to Him about everything and anything that matters to us.

So, no matter what battle you’re fighting or what your circumstances look like, know that you have God Himself in your corner. He sees where you are, He hears your prayers, and He delights in coming to your rescue.

Prayer Starter: I thank You today, Father, that prayer doesn’t have to be long and complicated. You hear even my short, heartfelt prayers. Remind me that I can have a continuous conversation with You all through the day, and that You hear and answer me. In Jesus’ name, Amen.

March 26, 2019 Lily among Thorns – Anglican Communion 26 March 2019

Lily among Thorns – Anglican Communion 26 March 2019

[ad_1]

The Daily Fountain Daily Devotional of the Church Of Nigeria (Anglican Communion) 26 March 2019 – Lily among Thorns

TOPIC: Lily among Thorns

READ: Songs of Solomon 2:1-17 King James Version (KJV)

1 I am the rose of Sharon, and the lily of the valleys.

2 As the lily among thorns, so is my love among the daughters.

3 As the apple tree among the trees of the wood, so is my beloved among the sons. I sat down under his shadow with great delight, and his fruit was sweet to my taste.

4 He brought me to the banqueting house, and his banner over me was love.

5 Stay me with flagons, comfort me with apples: for I am sick of love.

6 His left hand is under my head, and his right hand doth embrace me.

7 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.

8 The voice of my beloved! behold, he cometh leaping upon the mountains, skipping upon the hills.

9 My beloved is like a roe or a young hart: behold, he standeth behind our wall, he looketh forth at the windows, shewing himself through the lattice.

10 My beloved spake, and said unto me, Rise up, my love, my fair one, and come away.

11 For, lo, the winter is past, the rain is over and gone;

12 The flowers appear on the earth; the time of the singing of birds is come, and the voice of the turtle is heard in our land;

13 The fig tree putteth forth her green figs, and the vines with the tender grape give a good smell. Arise, my love, my fair one, and come away.

14 O my dove, that art in the clefts of the rock, in the secret places of the stairs, let me see thy countenance, let me hear thy voice; for sweet is thy voice, and thy countenance is comely.

15 Take us the foxes, the little foxes, that spoil the vines: for our vines have tender grapes.

16 My beloved is mine, and I am his: he feedeth among the lilies.

17 Until the day break, and the shadows flee away, turn, my beloved, and be thou like a roe or a young hart upon the mountains of Bether.

THE MESSAGE:

The bridegroom first of all reminds the bride that she is a lily among thorns (verse 2). We need to realise that believers are like lily flowers existing in the midst of the thorns of the world. We must be careful to remain beautiful for God and not to be crushed or destroyed by the world. The bridegroom also stresses the need to sit with delight in God’s presence so that we can be sustained (verse 3&5). There is the need to drive away the little foxes of sin that spoil our Christian faith and behaviour (verse 15).

God, like the King in verse 9, is able to look through windows, walls and lattices of our lives and situations. We need to listen to instructions in His word for He sees and knows beyond us.

The King told his bride when to rise or come away because of the change in seasons. Similarly we need to obey God when He calls us to pray, study the bible, have retreats or vigils due to changes in the seasons of life.

Recognise that seasons of cold, heat, etc., exist in life. His instructions will help us to be victorious over each season and if we hold His hand, He will guide us through the rocky mountains (verse 14).

PRAYER: Lord please help me to be an obedient bride so that I can radiate Your beauty as a flower and remain uncrushed among the thorns of this life.

March 26, 2019 Divine Visitation by Pastor David Ibiyeomie

Divine Visitation by Pastor David Ibiyeomie

Divine Visitation by Pastor David Ibiyeomie

Topic: Divine Visitation

Luke 19:41-44 -And when he was come near, he beheld the city, and wept over it, 42 Saying, If thou hadst known, even thou, at least in this thy day, the things which belong unto thy peace! but now they are hid from thine eyes. 43 For the days shall come upon thee, that thine enemies shall cast a trench about thee, and compass thee round, and keep thee in on every side, 44 And shall lay thee even with the ground, and thy children within thee; and they shall not leave in thee one stone upon another; because thou knewest not the time of thy visitation.

Divine visitation refers to when heaven intervenes in the affairs of man to bring about a drastic turnaround in man’s situation. Divine visitation can turn a wilderness or barren land to become a fruitful place. When God visits you, promises and prophesies come into manifestation, destiny fulfilled and tangible results are seen. Divine visitation is the answer to every form of frustration and stagnation in life.

Also Read: God’s View Concerning Marriage (Part 3) by Pastor Faith Oyedepo

A time of divine visitation is the period when your expectations are delivered to you in the presence of God. When God visits a man, everything about his life turns for good. Abraham did not miss his time of visitation when he unknowingly ministered unto the angels that were on their way to destroy Sodom and Gomorrah. Rebekah also did not miss her time of divine visitation when she ministered unto Abraham’s servant in Gen. 24

Every frustration in the journey of life is traceable to missing one’s time of visitation. God is ready to visit you with the oil of dominion; hence, don’t allow Jesus to weep over you as HE did over Jerusalem because they did not recognize their time of visitation.

Constantly position yourself for a divine visitation encounter, whether in the church or not and you will be free from every frustration of life. We are in a very strange time and every attempt of the devil to rob you of any aspect of your destiny is cursed today! Every of his attempt to rob you of anything that belongs to you in God is cursed right now! I stand as a New Testament prophet and I declare an immediate restoration of all that you have already lost in Jesus mighty name –Amen!!!

God bless you

TREM Devotional 26 March 2019 – Stick with the Process until it Manifests

[ad_1]

Topic: Stick with the Process until it Manifests [TREM Devotional 26 March 2019]

“For assuredly, I say to you, whoever says to this mountain, ‘Be removed and be cast into the sea,’ and does not doubt in his heart, but believes that those things he says will be done, he will have whatever he says.” Mark 11:23 (NKJV)

I will liken the above scripture to planting a seed in the ground. After planting, you keep nurturing the seed and ensure that it is adequately exposed to sunlight. You water the seed and you do all that you know to do just to ensure that the seed grows into a plant. You don’t go and uproot the seed simply because the next day or week after planting you haven’t seen the corn tree; No! You stick with the process until it manifests. The same thing goes for the Word of God. You must stick with the process until you see the manifestation. And the Word of God guarantees you that there will be a manifestation.

What happens to most of us is that we give up too easily. We stand for a little bit, and when things don’t seem to go like we expected, we conclude that it is not working. ‘May be God didn’t really mean what He said.’ Settle this in your heart once and for all that GOD CANNOT LIE! It is not in His character to do so! Every promise He has made is guaranteed by Christ’s eternal sacrifice on the cross. And the sacrifice cannot be violated.

Child of God, don’t fall for the lies of the devil. It is your responsibility to cast down every imagination and every thought that tries to exalt itself above the knowledge of God. Don’t give it any room to take root and grow in your life; instead, counter it with the Word of God. God attaches a great deal of importance to His Word. He does not pull punches. He says what He means and He means what He says. All that we are expected to do is to lay hold on them, and keep standing until we see the promise fulfilled.
