Topic: When you are at Crossroads (Open Heaven 31 March 2019)

Memorise: “Thus saith the LORD, Stand ye in the ways, and see, and ask for the old paths, where is the good way, and walk therein, and ye shall find rest for your souls. But they said, We will not walk therein.”- Jeremiah 6:16

Read: Isaiah 30:18-21, Acts 16:6-10 (KJV)

Isaiah 30:18-21:18 And therefore will the LORD wait, that he may be gracious unto you, and therefore will he be exalted, that he may have mercy upon you: for the LORD is a God of judgment: blessed are all they that wait for him.

19 For the people shall dwell in Zion at Jerusalem: thou shalt weep no more: he will be very gracious unto thee at the voice of thy cry; when he shall hear it, he will answer thee.

20 And though the Lord give you the bread of adversity, and the water of affliction, yet shall not thy teachers be removed into a corner any more, but thine eyes shall see thy teachers:

21 And thine ears shall hear a word behind thee, saying, This is the way, walk ye in it, when ye turn to the right hand, and when ye turn to the left.

Acts 16:6-10:6 Now when they had gone throughout Phrygia and the region of Galatia, and were forbidden of the Holy Ghost to preach the word in Asia,

7 After they were come to Mysia, they assayed to go into Bithynia: but the Spirit suffered them not.

8 And they passing by Mysia came down to Troas.

9 And a vision appeared to Paul in the night; There stood a man of Macedonia, and prayed him, saying, Come over into Macedonia, and help us.

10 And after he had seen the vision, immediately we endeavoured to go into Macedonia, assuredly gathering that the Lord had called us for to preach the gospel unto them.

Bible in One Year: 1 Timothy 1-6, Jeremiah 8:4-17

Open Heaven 31 March 2019 Sunday MESSAGE:

At a point in everyone’s life, we all come face to face with crossroads. Many people don’t know what to do when they find themselves at crossroads, and so they take steps in the wrong direction, leading to setbacks or destruction. This will not be your portion in Jesus’ Name. However, for this not to be your lot, you need to know what to do when at crossroads in life. The Holy Spirit offers an excellent solution in today’s memory verse. From His recommendations, the first thing you need to do is to pause and consider the options before you. He said “Stand ye in the ways, and see.” Some people are always in a hurry to make decisions at such moments, but this is not a wise thing to do. Do not allow your emotions or anyone rush you into making a decision when at crossroads. You need to learn to wait for the Lord, especially at such moments. Wait to hear expressly from God for Him to give you a sign on the right thing to do. In today’s Bible reading, when Paul and his company faced a dilemma on where next to take the message of the gospel, they waited until God gave them a sign through a night vision. Mind you, they were obeying the commandments of the Lord “to go ye into the world and preach the gospel”, and yet the Holy Spirit forbade them from preaching in two places. The Holy Spirit who forbade them from preaching in two places. The Holy Spirit who forbade them from preaching in those places did not expressly tell them where they would preach next. They had to wait for the Lord until He showed them the path to toe. How marvelous are the ways of our God! No wonder Isaiah 30:18b from our Bible reading says:

“for the LORD is a God of judgment: blessed are all they that wait for him.”

After pausing to see, the next step the Holy Spirit recommends in Jeremiah 6:16 is to ask for the old paths. There is a Nigerian adage that says “He who asks questions will not miss his way”. You need to ask questions on how the issue you are facing was handled by those who have gone ahead of you and what their results were. It is unfortunate that today’s men and women tend not to see anything good in the old paths, and yet these sometimes hold the key to their future. However, take careful note of the words used by the Holy Spirit in Jeremiah 6:16. He did not say you should ask for the old paths and walk in them; He said you should ask for the old paths and walk in them; He said you should ask for the old paths and make further enquiries on where the good way is. The old paths are not necessarily the good way, but they can point you in the direction of where the good way is. Don’t be fixated on doing things the way they have always been done, except that is seen to be the good way. You need to have a relationship with the One who declared Himself to be The way, in order for you to discover where the good way is in all situations (John 14:6). When you are His sheep, you will hear His voice behind you, telling you which way to go. When you yield to His voice, you will surely find rest for your soul.

Open Heaven 31 March 2019 Sunday Action Point:

Apply the principles of Jeremiah 6:16 to any crossroads you are facing today.

Jeremiah 6:16: Thus saith the LORD, Stand ye in the ways, and see, and ask for the old paths, where is the good way, and walk therein, and ye shall find rest for your souls. But they said, We will not walk therein.

Open Heaven 31 March 2019 Sunday Hymn 3: Trust and Obey

1 When we walk with the Lord
In the light of His word
What a glory He sheds on our way!
While we do His good will,
He abides with us still,
And with all who will trust and obey

Chorus:
Trust and obey,
For there’s no other way
To be happy in Jesus,
But to trust and obey.

2 Not a shadow can rise,
Not a cloud in the skies,
But His smile quickly drives it away;
Not a doubt nor a fear
Not a sigh nor a tear,
Can abide while we trust and obey.

3 Not a burden we bear,
Not a sorrow we share
But our toil He doth richly repay;
Not a grief nor a loss,
Not a frown nor a cross,
But is blest if we trust and obey.

4 But we never can prove
The delights of His love
Until all on the altar we lay;
For the favour He shows,
And the joy He bestows,
Are for them who will trust and obey.

5 Then in fellowship sweet
We will sit at His feet,
Or we’ll walk by His side in the way;
What He says we will do
Where He sends we will go
Never fear, only trust and obey.

Topic: The Call To preach The Gospel

And all things are of God, who hath reconciled us to himself by Jesus Christ, and hath given to us the ministry of reconciliation (2 Corinthians 5:18).

Every Christian is called to take the Gospel to the ends of the earth. Jesus said: “…Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature” (Mark 16:15), and everything we require to achieve this divine commission is already available to us. Recall what the Master said to His disciples in Luke 22:35, “…When I sent you without purse, and scrip, and shoes, lacked ye anything? And they said, Nothing.”

When God sends you on an assignment, He sees to it that everything you require to accomplish that assignment is made available to you. All He needs is your commitment to His dream. You have to be determined that there’ll be no limit to how far you’re willing to go and do for the Gospel, for it is the power of God unto salvation to everyone who believes. It’s the power of God to make sinners righteous. It’s the power of God to catapult the poor from obscurity and misery to a life of prosperity, glory, and excellence.

The sinner needs to know that Jesus already bore the penalty for his sins. The poor needs to know that they’ve been brought out of poverty, into prosperity and abundance. The sick needs to know that divine health is available in Christ; Jesus has taken away every pain; all they have to do is call on His Name. But Romans 10:14 says, “How then shall they call on him in whom they have not believed? and how shall they believe in him of whom they have not heard? and how shall they hear without a preacher?”

That’s where you come in; you’re the bearer of the good news of Christ’s salvation. Decide that through you, those in your world who haven’t yet known the Lord will hear and receive the Gospel. Like the Apostle Paul, take the call to preach the Gospel seriously; make it your life’s work.

Paul said in Romans 1:16, “…I am not ashamed of the Gospel of Christ….” Then in 1 Corinthians 9:16, he said, “Woe unto me, if I don’t preach the Gospel!” Have the same mentality about the Gospel, for it’s been committed to your trust.

PRAYER Dear Father, I thank you for the glorious Gospel of Christ, through which life and immortality is unveiled. I’m convinced that the Gospel is the power of God unto salvation; therefore, I’m committed to its spread around the world. Today, many are brought out of sin, into righteousness, and into the glorious liberty of the sons of God, as the Gospel is preached around the world, in Jesus’ Name. Amen.

March 30, 2019 EL-SHADDAI By Pastor Paul Enenche

EL-SHADDAI By Pastor Paul Enenche

[ad_1]

WORSHIP, WORD AND WONDERS NIGHT – 29TH MARCH 2019 ANCHOR SCRIPTURE(S): PSALM 91:1-2; GENESIS 22:14 MESSAGE TOPIC: EL-SHADDAI

View previous MESSAGES by Pastor Paul Enenche

El-Shaddai is one of the Hebrew names of God that means ‘Almighty’ and means ‘all powerful’ and also means ‘the many breasted God’.

El-Shaddai in two words means ‘Divine Provider’ and ‘Divine Protector’

FIVE DIMENSIONS OF THE DIVINE PROVISION CAPACITY OF EL-SHADDAI:

1. He is the incomprehensible Provider

He beats your imagination with His provision capacity.

With man you may understand how he will provide a thing for you, but with God His provision capacity is incomprehensible, it beats the imagination of man.

If you want to comprehend God, you can never go far with Him and He can never go far with you.

2. He is the incomparable Provider

There is nobody to compare God with; that is why when you begin to look up to man, God begins to look away from you.

There is no human being that is a yardstick that you can measure God with.

3. He is the inexhaustible Provider

He is the Ocean that never dries and the Supply that never finishes.

4. He is the indefatigable Provider

5. He is the infallible Provider (Matt. 6:11)

He is the unfailing Provider; He is always there (Matt. 6:11)

FIVE DIMENSIONS OF THE DIVINE PROTECTION CAPACITY OF EL-SHADDAI:

1. He is the indomitable Protector (Col. 3:3)

Before anyone can locate you, they have to pass through Christ in God (Col. 3:3)

2. He is the incredible Protector

He has the capacity to protect you in unbelievable ways.

There are things to thank God that you have and there are things to thank God that you never had.

There are times Almighty doesn’t give you things because He doesn’t want to spoil you (Heb. 5:8)

3. He is the indispensable Protector

HOW TO EXPERIENCE THE PROVISION AND PROTECTION OF EL-SHADDAI:

1. Connect Divine direction (Ps. 23:1-6)

God protects and provides for who He directs.

Don’t walk in assumption, let God lead you.

God cannot protect you where He did not direct you.

If you need Divine provision and Divine protection, you must have Divine direction.

2. Connect Divine Presence (Ps. 91:1)

Make God your habitation; dwell inside God through prayer, study of the Word and worship and you won’t beg for what to eat.

3. Connect sacrificial giving/living (Gen. 8:20-22; 9:1-2)

PRAYER

El-Shaddai, my Provider and Protector welcome. Take Your place in my life, in Jesus’ Name.

View previous devotional HERE

This is the day that the Lord has made; let us rejoice and be glad in it. — Psalm 118:24

Enjoying the abundant life Jesus died to give you is based on a decision you make, not on your circumstances. Thankfully, you can decide to be happy right where you are and to enjoy the life you have right now on the way to where you are going. You can make a firm decision to enjoy your journey.

You can begin by saying out loud, “I am going to enjoy my life.” Until you get that thought established in your mind, every morning when you wake up, before you even get out of bed, I encourage you to declare out loud, “I am going to enjoy this day! I am seizing the day! I am taking authority over Satan—the joy thief—even before he tries to come against me. I have made up my mind that I am going to keep my joy today!”

Having a right mind-set always helps in every situation.

Prayer Starter: I thank You today, Father, that I can choose to live in the abundant life Jesus died to give me. I don’t have to live a miserable, unhappy life. I can choose to celebrate Your goodness and enjoy the life You have given me. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.

From Joyce Meyer’s Ministries.

DCLM Daily Manna 30 March 2019 – Nose For Details

[ad_1]

Topic: Nose For Details [DCLM Daily Manna 30 March 2019 Daily Devotional by Pastor William Folorunso Kumuyi]

Text: Exodus 26:1-15 (KJV)

Key Verse: “Moreover thou shalt make the tabernacle with ten curtains of fine twined linen, and blue, and purple, and scarlet: with cherubims of cunning work shalt thou make them” (Exodus 26:1).

MESSAGE:

Sir William Osler was an eminent professor of medicine at Oxford University. In demonstrating his lesson on the necessity of observing details to his eager students, he dipped a finger in a bottle containing urine and then into his mouth. He passed the bottle round and bade the students to do exactly what he did. After each of the students in turn had dipped a finger in the bottle and bravely sampled the fluid, the professor announced their failure in observation. They did not observe that he put his index finger into the bottle but his middle finger into his mouth.

God is a God of details. This is clear in our text where He gave Moses instructions regarding the making of the tabernacle. Observe the minute and accurate description given here concerning both the outer and inner aspects of the tabernacle. The inner part was to comprise ten curtains with specified length, loops and clasps. The outer coverings were to be made of goat’s skin comprising eleven curtains. A cover was also to be made to secure the tabernacle from the weather.

The specifications for the tabernacle emphasised both aesthetics and functionality. The finest materials and colours were prescribed to reflect the glory and majesty of God whose dwelling place the tabernacle represented. The house of God today should attract no less attention. The tabernacle was to be designed as a moveable structure because Israel was still journeying in the wilderness. A permanent temple was built when they eventually settled in the Promised Land. The curtains were to be embroidered with cherubim – an indication of the angelic ministry to God and His people.

In lifestyle and Christian service, we must endeavour to pay attention to details and ensure we build according to the divine pattern.

Thought For The Day: The weight of our faithfulness shows clearer on minor scales.

For God hath not appointed us to wrath, but to obtain salvation by our Lord Jesus Christ, who died for us . . . — 1 Thessalonians 5:9,10

Look at Christ’s death. In one biography of the great American, Daniel Webster, 863 pages deal with his career and just five pages are devoted to his death. In Hay’s life of Abraham Lincoln there are 5,000 pages but only 25 are devoted to the dramatic story of his assassination and death. In most biographies the deaths of the subjects are mere incidents at the close of the books. But when we come to the four “biographies” of Jesus, the four Gospels, we are confronted with a strange fact. One-third of Matthew is given to a description of the death of Christ. One-third of Mark, one-fourth of Luke, and one-half of John are given to His death. All these pages are devoted to the last 24 hours of His life. The death of Jesus Christ is a significant fact in human history, because Jesus Christ came for the express purpose of dying for sinners. When He left heaven, He knew He was going to the cross.

Prayer for the day: Lord Jesus, what agony You suffered for me upon the cross. I deserve Your judgment, yet You have given me forgiveness and eternal life. I praise Your beloved name.

Written by Billy Graham, Founder of Billy Graham Evangelistic Association(BGEA). BGEA exists to proclaim the Gospel of Jesus Christ by every effective means and to equip the church and others to do the same.
