LIFE IS EMPTINESS

LIFE IS EMPTINESS

This is about you and you alone!!!


A woman died recently. She was a widow. She also had no child. She died in her late 50s. She has been buried.


When the family went to clean her property, they were amazed. She was a hoarder. The type you watch on American and British reality shows. She had stuffs filling her apartment. 

Piles of new materials. 

Piles of expired food products. 

Piles of gifts and souvenirs dating 10 years. 

6 television sets. 

5 new freezers. 

4 new generating sets. 

New gas cookers. 

Kerosine stoves of the 80s. 

All new.  

Expired vegetable oil. 

Decaying bags of rice. 

And so forth. 

There was no sitting space in a 4 bedroom apartment. 

Littered with junk.  


Plenty of stuff was thrown away. Many shared by family members who had no clue on how she lived. I am certain she has  a decent amount in the bank. She was prudent. Almost much too prudent. Bordering on...


Many of us are like her. We can’t give away stuff that we do not need. We pile “junk” that might be useful to anothers. We have clothes in wardrobes all over. We hoard everything we own. Lace of 92, gele of 88. 


Many even hoard love and praise. They hoard affection. No one is deserving of love. No one is deserving of help. When they lose one they love, they cry, because they hoarded words of affection and more. 


Life is meant to be lived. That we will die is certain. The uncertainty is when and how. The wise one lives everyday as the last. 


This is not to be read as encouraging wastage. Or failing to save for tomorrow. 


Empty your barns regularly to the needy so you also can have new.


At the end, the only thing you take with you, is how well you impacted the lives of others and your relationship with God, Nourish that..........


AND DON'T HOARD THIS POST TOO

OPEN HEAVENS DAILY DEVOTIONAL FOR TUESDAY 18TH MAY 2021: HAVE FAITH, NOT FEAR

OPEN HEAVENS DAILY DEVOTIONAL FOR TUESDAY 18TH MAY 2021: HAVE FAITH, NOT FEAR

THEME: HAVE FAITH, NOT FEAR

 

MEMORISE:

For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind. 2 Timothy 1:7

 

READ: Psalm 91:5-6

5 Thou shalt not be afraid for the terror by night; nor for the arrow that flieth by day;

6 Nor for the pestilence that walketh in darkness; nor for the destruction that wasteth at noonday.

 

MESSAGE:



If you have given your life to Jesus, then you should have nothing to fear because you will begin to dwell in the secret place of the Most High where you are assured of His protection. There was no fear in man until he allowed the devil in. It was when the devil convinced Adam and Eve to disobey God that fear came in. After Adam and Eve sinned, they had to hide themselves when they heard God coming. When God called, Adam said he heard God's voice and he was afraid (Genesis 3:10).

Fear is the opposite of faith. While faith means that you believe God, fear means that you believe the devil. In other words, if you do not have faith, then you have fear. Fear belongs to the children of the devil. However, once you cross from the side of the devil to the side of God, there will be no more fear. This is because fear comes from darkness and since Jesus is Light, He will dispel all forms of darkness. When Jesus comes into your life, rather than fear, He gives you the Spirit of love, power joy and of a sound mind. Romans 8:14-15 says:

"For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, they are the sons of God. For ye have not received the spirit of bondage again to fear; but ye have received the Spirit of adoption, whereby we cry, Abba, Father."

Children of God are guided by the Holy Spirit. Jesus has promised to give all His children the power of the Holy Ghost so as not to be afraid. If you are a child of God, you have no business with fear. From time immemorial, God has always put a dividing line between those who serve Him wholeheartedly and those who refuse to. He always rewards everyone according to their works. If you are righteous, He rewards you so that you can remain so, if you are living in sin, He arranges for you to forsake wickedness and join the righteous family of God. Psalm 121:7says:

"The Lord shall preserve thee from all evil: He shall preserve thy soul."

With all these wonderful promises, you have no cause to fear as God's child. Whatever is causing you to panic, the Lord will destroy it in your life and family in Jesus’ name. Do not be afraid, God is your refuge and the Present Help in the time of need (Psalm 46:1).

 

ACTION POINT:

Check your life and prayerfully do away with whatever brings fear, panic and anxiety.

  

HYMNAL: STANDING ON THE PROMISES OF CHRIST MY KING 

1. Standing on the promises of Christ my King,

through eternal ages let His praises ring;

glory in the highest, I will shout and sing,

standing on the promises of God.


Refrain:

Standing, standing,

Standing on the promises of God my Saviour;

Standing, standing,

I’m standing on the promises of God.

 

2. Standing on the promises that cannot fail,

when the howling storms of doubt and fear assail,

by the living Word of God I shall prevail,

standing on the promises of God.

 

3. Standing on the promises of Christ the Lord,

bound to Him eternally by love’s strong cord,

overcoming daily with the Spirit’s sword,

standing on the promises of God.

 

4. Standing on the promises I cannot fall,

listening every moment to the Spirit’s call,

resting in my Saviour as my all in all,

standing on the promises of God.

Daily Motivational Quote for today Monday 17th May, 2021: Get up, get up, get up!!!


Sometimes life knocks you on your ass... get up, get up, get up!!! Happiness is not the absence of problems, it's the ability to deal with them.


Two things define your personality, the way you manage things when you have nothing.. The way you behave when you have everything...

OPEN HEAVENS DAILY DEVOTIONAL FOR MONDAY 17TH MAY, 2021: HE WILL TAKE YOU THERE!

THEME: HE WILL TAKE YOU THERE!


MEMORISE:

To him that overcometh will I grant to sit with Me in My throne, even as I also overcame, and am set down with My Father in His throne.

Revelation 3:21


READ: John 14:1-3 

1. Let not your heart be troubled; ye believe in God, believe also in Me.

2. In My Father’s house are many mansions; if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you.

3. And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto Myself; that where I am, there ye may be also.


MESSAGE:



The ultimate goal of all genuine Christians is to make Heaven; this is why Jesus died for mankind. Jesus said of Himself in Luke 19:10:

"For the Son of man is come to seek and to save that which was lost.


Only overcomers can make it to Heaven. How then can you overcome? First, you must overcome all the evil thoughts in your heart. Our Lord Jesus said in Revelation 3:20:

"Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: if any man hear My voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with Me."


Proverbs 23:26 also says 

"My son, give me thine heart, and let thine eyes observe my ways."

Beloved, when we allow Jesus Christ to come into our hearts, He will give us victory over all the thoughts that defile us and make us candidates of hell. You must allow Jesus into your heart because naturally, the heart of man is desperately wicked (Jeremiah 17:9).

What exactly is in the heart that makes it wicked? Mark 7:21-23 provides the answer to this question:

"For from within, out of the heart of men, proceed evil thoughts, adulteries, fornications, murders, Thefts, covetousness, wickedness, deceit, lasciviousness, an evil eye, blasphemy, pride, foolishness: All these evil things come from within, and defile the man."


It is only those who overcome the above listed sins who would get the power to enter into Heavenly bliss. You cannot do it by yourself; this is why you need Jesus, who can give you the power to live above sin. The power that overcomes sin is the power we need to make Heaven and Jesus is ready to give you if you are willing to forsake Satan, sin and every form of wickedness. You must make conscious efforts to flee all appearances of evil like Joseph did in Potiphar’s house. Beginning from now, your struggles with sin are over in Jesus’ name.


The power of “Go and sin no more” as was given by Jesus to the woman caught in the act of adultery shall be yours today and you shall make Heaven at last, in the mighty name of Jesus.


PRAYER POINT:

Father, please give me the power to overcome sin today. Make me a candidate of heavenly bliss, in the mighty name of Jesus.


HYMNAL: CONQUERORS AND OVERCOMERS NOW ARE WE

1. Conquerors and overcomers now are we,

Thro’ the precious blood of Christ we’ve victory

If the Lord be for us, we can never fail,

Nothing ‘gainst His mighty pow’r can e’er prevail.


Refrain:

Conquerors are we, 

thro’ the blood, thro’ the blood,

God will give us victory, 

thro’ the blood, thro’ the blood

Thro’ the Lamb for sinners slain,

Yet who lives and reigns again,

More than conquerors are we,

More than conquerors are we.


2. In the name of Israel’s God we’ll onward press,

Overcoming sin and all unrighteousness;

Not to us, but unto Him the praise shall be,

For salvation and for blood-bought victory.


3. Unto him that overcometh shall be giv’n,

Here to eat of hidden manna sent from heav’n,

Over yonder he the victor’s palm shall bear,

And a robe of white, and golden crown shall wear.

The truth is, unless you let go, unless you forgive yourself, unless you forgive the situation, unless you realize that the situation is over, you cannot move forward.


Be Brave and Take Risks: You need to have faith in yourself. Be brave and take risks. You don't have to have it all figured out to move forward.

OPEN HEAVENS DAILY DEVOTIONAL FOR SUNDAY 16TH MAY, 2021: YOU CAN BE RICH AND RIGHTEOUS

THEME: YOU CAN BE RICH AND RIGHTEOUS


MEMORISE:

Riches and honour are with Me; yea, durable riches and righteousness. Proverbs 8:18


READ: Malachi 3:10-12 

10 - Bring ye all the tithes into the storehouse, that there may be meat in Mine house, and prove Me now herewith, saith the LORD of hosts, if I will not open you the windows of heaven, and pour you out a blessing, that there shall not be room enough to receive it.

11 - And I will rebuke the devourer for your sakes, and he shall not destroy the fruits of your ground; neither shall your vine cast her fruit before the time in the field, saith the LORD of hosts.

12 - And all nations shall call you blessed: for ye shall be a delightsome land, saith the LORD of hosts.


MESSAGE:



Many children of God have misconceptions about prosperity. Some think that being a Christian means that they have to be poor, forgetting that God Himself said in Proverbs 8:18:

"Riches and honour are with Me; yea, durable riches and righteousness."

Imagine God, our Father having the possession of riches and righteousness. This revelation counters the notion that you cannot be righteous and rich at the same time. Today, I decree that the power to get wealth shall come upon you in Jesus’ name.

Those people who think that wealth is alien to God run after the devil and he deceives them into thinking that he has wealth. The devil tried this with Jesus in Luke 4:6-7, but our Saviour knows better. The truth is that only God can give you power to get wealth (Deuteronomy 8:18). He blessed Abraham, Isaac and Jacob in their generations as we see in Genesis 22:15-18; 26:12-14; 32:9-10. When Jabez cried unto God in 1 Chronicles 4:10, God blessed him greatly. Peter, the struggling fisherman, encountered the King of glory at the lake of Gennesaret, and suddenly he became prosperous, looking for additional hands to help him gather his bountiful harvest (Luke 5:4-9). This same God will give you power to get wealth today in Jesus’ name.

The question now is “How do we get this power to become wealthy?” It is simple. Always worship the Lord with fear and trembling. Commit to meditating on His word (Joshua 1:8, Deuteronomy 28:1). You must also not forget to be like Him in your dedication to service. God would only give His riches and honour to diligent people; you must never be lazy or idle. Furthermore, you must keep His commandments in the area of tithe, offering and first-fruits, remembering the needy, the widow and the orphans (Proverbs 19:17). Finally, you must live and spend your income prudently because Proverbs 21:17 says “He that loveth pleasure shall be a poor man:…”

We shall be wise, in the mighty name of Jesus.


PRAYER POINT:

Father, please give me the power to get wealth and I will become a channel of blessing to the world.


HYMNAL: THERE SHALL BE SHOWERS OF BLESSING.

There shall be showers of blessing:

This is the promise of love;

There shall be seasons refreshing,

Sent from the Saviour above.


Refrain:

Showers of blessing,

Showers of blessing we need;

Mercy drops ’round us are falling,

But for the showers we plead.


There shall be showers of blessing:

Precious reviving again;

Over the hills and the valleys,

Sound of abundance of rain.


There shall be showers of blessing;

Send them upon us, Oh Lord!

Grant to us now a refreshing;

Come and now honour Thy Word.


There shall be showers of blessing;

Oh, that today they might fall,

Now, as to God, we’re confessing,

Now as on Jesus we call!

MEMORISE: 1 John 5:14

And this is the confidence that we have in Him, that, if we ask any thing according to His will, He heareth us:

 

READ: 1 John 5:14-15 

14 And this is the confidence that we have in Him, that, if we ask any thing according to His will, He heareth us:

15 And if we know that He hear us, whatsoever we ask, we know that we have the petitions that we desired of Him.

 

MESSAGE:



There is power behind asking and receiving. If you do not believe this, read the story of Jesus and the boy who was possessed by a demon in Matthew 17:14-21. Only a child of God can decree a thing and shall be established as promised in Job 22:28. This is why it is important to be born again. The boldness to ask in faith and the power to receive belong to God, and He freely gives them to His children. 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."

Going by the Scripture above, there is a need to be filled with the Holy Spirit if we would get this divine power. In other words, the power of prayer is given by the Holy Spirit. Jesus' disciples found it difficult to pray effectively when the Holy Spirit had not come upon them, as seen in Matthew 17:14-20. However, when the Spirit came upon them, not only were they able to pray effectively, they also started decreeing mighty things (Acts 4:31). You can also get this power to ask and receive, by resting on God's promises as contained in His word. For example, in John 16:23, Jesus said

"...Whatsoever ye shall ask the Father in My name, He will give it you."

It is one thing to have the power to ask and it is another to have the power to receive. Sometimes, when God gives out His blessings to people, they may not have power of sonship to receive them. Peter almost missed his blessing but for the mercy of God. When he encountered Jesus at the lake of Gennesaret, he pleaded with Jesus to get away from him because he was guilt-ridden (Luke 5:8), whereas Jesus was actually offering him an apostolic office.

To get power to receive God's benevolence, therefore, you must have faith In Jesus. You must also live a life free of sin (Psalm 66:18). In addition to that, your prayer must not be marred with lust or ulterior motives (James 4:3). Beginning from now, you will be empowered to ask and receive in the mighty name of Jesus.

  

PRAYER POINT:                                          

Father, please give me the power to pray effectively so that whatever I decree here on earth shall be established in Heaven.

 

HYMNAL: STANDING ON THE PROMISES OF CHRIST MY KING

1. Standing on the promises of Christ my King,

through eternal ages let His praises ring;

glory in the highest, I will shout and sing,

standing on the promises of God.


Refrain:

Standing, standing,

standing on the promises of God my Saviour;

standing, standing,

I’m standing on the promises of God.

 

2. Standing on the promises that cannot fail,

when the howling storms of doubt and fear assail,

by the living Word of God I shall prevail,

standing on the promises of God.

 

3. Standing on the promises of Christ the Lord,

bound to Him eternally by love’s strong cord,

overcoming daily with the Spirit’s sword,

standing on the promises of God.

 

4. Standing on the promises I cannot fall,

listening every moment to the Spirit’s call,

resting in my Saviour as my all in all,

standing on the promises of God.

Daily Motivational Quote for today Thursday 13th May 2021: Be yourself, You owned nobody any explanation


Don't waste your time with explanations, people only want to hear what they want to hear.


Be yourself, don't change being you for anyone, if they don't like you for who you are then they don't deserve to be in your life. You are you and you can't be anyone different.


If you want to reach a goal, you must see the reaching' in your own mind before you actually arrive at your goal.

OPEN HEAVENS DAILY DEVOTIONAL FOR THURSDAY 13TH MAY, 2021: HEARKEN UNTO GOD

THEME: HEARKEN UNTO GOD


MEMORISE:

Watch ye and pray, lest ye enter into temptation. The spirit truly is ready, but the flesh is weak. Mark 14:38


READ: Mark 14:37-38

37. And he cometh, and findeth them sleeping, and saith unto Peter, Simon, sleepest thou? couldest not thou watch one hour?

38. Watch ye and pray, lest ye enter into temptation. The spirit truly is ready, but the flesh is weak.


MESSAGE:



It is always good to pay close attention to instructions given by anyone you consider to be your guide or guardian. More often, we miss many opportunities, breakthroughs and victories because we fail to pay attention to the details of the instructions given to us.

The apostles of old also struggled with this lack of adequate attention to detailed instructions and we must learn from them. When our Lord came face to face with the reality of the cross, He admitted that it was not an easy burden to bear (Mark 14:34). There is only one way to pass the tests of these present times – prayer. He went to pray and told the disciples to do the same - though not for Him, but themselves.

In our memory verse today, Jesus said they should watch and pray so as not to enter into temptation but they were busy sleeping.

At a point, Jesus was so moved by their insensitivity to the reality at hand that He said to Peter “Simon, sleepest thou? Couldest not thou watch one hour?” (Mark 14:37).

Beloved, to make it to the end of our Christian race, let us pay close attention to the details of the Lord’s injunctions and we shall be glad we did. When the Lord said “Bring ye all the tithes to the storehouse” – Malachi 3:10, He meant all the tithes. You do not need an Advanced Learners Dictionary to understand what ‘all' means. It is clear that in this case, ‘all’ means everything that makes up one tenth of your income. The Bible says in (1 Corinthians 11:6):

"For if the woman be not covered, let her also be shorn: but if it be a shame for a woman to be shorn or shaven, let her be covered."

Here, Apostle Paul did not say much on why a woman should cover her head while praying or prophesying. However, a conscientious child of God would not press for too many details before she jumps at this simple instruction of covering the head while praying. We should learn to hearken to the word of God whether it is convenient to do so or not.

Paying close attention to the details of God’s instructions can make the difference between speedy results and delayed blessings. God asked Abraham to leave his entire family and he obeyed but not completely as he took Lot – his nephew along with him. The manifestation of God’s promise in the life of Abraham did not come to pass until Lot separated from him. Hearken unto God.


PRAYER POINT:

Father, please give me the grace to pay attention to the details of Your instructions, even when I do not understand them fully, in the mighty name of Jesus.


HYMNAL: I NEED THEE EVERY HOUR

 1. I need Thee every hour, 

most gracious Lord;

No tender voice like Thine 

can peace afford.


Refrain:

I need Thee, oh, I need Thee;

Every hour I need Thee;

Oh, bless me now, my Saviour,

I come to Thee.

 

2. I need Thee every hour, 

stay Thou nearby;

Temptations lose their pow’r 

when Thou art nigh.


3. I need Thee every hour, 

in joy or pain;

Come quickly and abide, 

or life is vain.


4. I need Thee every hour; 

teach me Thy will;

And Thy rich promises 

in me fulfill.

OPEN HEAVENS DAILY DEVOTIONAL FOR WEDNESDAY 12TH MAY, 2021: YOU TOO CAN BE A CHILD OF GOD

THEME: YOU TOO CAN BE A CHILD OF GOD


 MEMORISE:

But as many as received Him, to them gave He power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on His name: John 1:12


READ: John 1:11-12 

11. He came unto His own, and His own received Him not.

12. But as many as received Him, to them gave He power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on His name;


MESSAGE:



There is virtually nothing anyone can do without power. It is generally described as the ability to act or produce an effect; it can also mean the possession of control, influence, legal and or official authority over others. Power can be physical, mental, political, economic or spiritual. The power we are looking at today however, encompasses all spheres of human endeavours; it is the divine power available for children of God as we see in the memory verse for today.

Seeing that some degree of power is required in order to become a child of God, the question then is how can a person get this power. Beloved, this divine power is given by the Father Himself. If anyone wishes to become a child of God, he or she must first come to the Father in repentance. Many have perished in sin, sickness, poverty, addictions, and other forms of bondage, because they rejected the Gospel of the Father and so did not receive the power to become children of God. Romans 3:23 says:

"For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God;"

Thus, to become a child of God, you must be born again by the power of the Holy Spirit (John 3:3-5). The power to become a child of God is also hidden in the word of God (Ephesians 5:26). You must begin to act on the infallible word of God. It is only then that the power to become His child would come upon you mightily (James 1:22-25).

There are so many rights and privileges of being God’s child. If you are yet to be born again, you are missing a lot. When you become a child of God, you immediately become joint-heirs with Jesus Christ in glory. Thus, you become bold to confront your adversaries and they will flee from you. You receive all-round protection according to Isaiah 54:17. Your prayers will receive speedy answers from your Father in Heaven and finally, you will make it to Heaven when you close your eyes in death. In other words, you will escape the agony of the second death as it is written in Revelation 21:8. Praise the Lord!


PRAYER POINT:

Father, give me the power to become Your child today. I reject the devil and his deeds. I confess Jesus Christ as my Lord and Saviour forever, in the mighty name of Jesus.


HYMNAL: ROCK OF AGES, CLEFT FOR ME 

1. Rock of Ages, cleft for me,

Let me hide myself in Thee;

Let the water and the blood,

From Thy wounded side which flowed,

Be of sin the double cure,

Save from wrath and make me pure.

 

2. Not the labours of my hands

Can fulfill Thy law’s demands;

Could my zeal no respite know,

Could my tears forever flow,

All for sin could not atone;

Thou must save, and Thou alone.

 

3. Nothing in my hand I bring,

Simply to the cross I cling;

Naked, come to Thee for dress;

Helpless, look to Thee for grace;

Foul, I to the fountain fly;

Wash me, Saviour, or I die.

 

4. While I draw this fleeting breath,

When my eyes shall close in death,

When I soar to worlds unknown,

See Thee on Thy judgement throne,

Rock of Ages, cleft for me,

Let me hide myself in Thee.

MEMORISE:

For whosoever shall give you a cup of water to drink in my name, because ye belong to Christ, verily I say unto you, he shall not lose his reward. Mark 9:41

 

READ: Matthew 10:40-42


 40 He that receiveth you receiveth me, and he that receiveth me receiveth him that sent me.


41 He that receiveth a prophet in the name of a prophet shall receive a prophet's reward; and he that receiveth a righteous man in the name of a righteous man shall receive a righteous man's reward.


42 And whosoever shall give to drink unto one of these little ones a cup of cold water only in the name of a disciple, verily I say unto you, he shall in no wise lose his reward.

 

MESSAGE:



Another reason Elisha achieved uncommon greatness is that he was devoted to God's servant, Elijah. The Bible says that Elisha poured water on Elijah's hands, meaning that he served him. Beloved, there are lots of blessings reserved for those who serve God's prophets. Matthew 10:41 says:

 "He that receiveth a prophet in the name of a prophet shall receive a prophet's reward; and he that receiveth a righteous man in the name of a righteous man shall receive a righteous man's reward."

 

When a man of God says, "God bless you", he is not just speaking idly; he is loading you with prophetic blessing that will give you tremendous testimonies. This is why you must be ready to do anything that will qualify you for such a divine blessing. One of my sons-in-the-Lord in the United States once shared his testimony thus: "The last time the General Overseer (G.O.) was here, my pastor told me I had been chosen to drive him throughout the duration of his visit I tried to explain that I was preparing for a major examination and might not be able to. However, the pastor insisted. In the end, I decided that since the G.O would only be spending one day, I could manage to combine the driving assignment with my preparation for the crucial examination. To my surprise the G.O. spent a whole week. When he was finally leaving, he simply said to me "God bless you". To the glory of God, despite the limited time I had for studying, I passed my examinations with flying colors and I got a new job. Now that the G.O. is here on another ministerial visit, I must be the one to drive him". You will never miss your reward in Jesus' name.

 

Elisha was committed to the business of the kingdom; that was why the only thing he wanted from Elijah was a double portion of his spirit He knew if he had what he would use for God's work he would get every other thing as promised in Matthew 6:33. God is looking for believers who are committed to kingdom business. Will you be available? As you work for God and serve His anointed ministers, God will remember your labor of love and bless you tremendously in the mighty name of Jesus.

 

ACTION POINT:

Think of what you can do to extend the frontiers of God's Kingdom on earth and begin to act decisively today.

For whosoever shall give you a cup of water to drink in my name, because ye belong to Christ, verily I say unto you, he shall not lose his reward. Mark 9:41

 

READ: Matthew 10:40-42


 40 He that receiveth you receiveth me, and he that receiveth me receiveth him that sent me.


41 He that receiveth a prophet in the name of a prophet shall receive a prophet's reward; and he that receiveth a righteous man in the name of a righteous man shall receive a righteous man's reward.


42 And whosoever shall give to drink unto one of these little ones a cup of cold water only in the name of a disciple, verily I say unto you, he shall in no wise lose his reward.

 

MESSAGE:



Another reason Elisha achieved uncommon greatness is that he was devoted to God's servant, Elijah. The Bible says that Elisha poured water on Elijah's hands, meaning that he served him. Beloved, there are lots of blessings reserved for those who serve God's prophets. Matthew 10:41 says:

 "He that receiveth a prophet in the name of a prophet shall receive a prophet's reward; and he that receiveth a righteous man in the name of a righteous man shall receive a righteous man's reward."

 

When a man of God says, "God bless you", he is not just speaking idly; he is loading you with prophetic blessing that will give you tremendous testimonies. This is why you must be ready to do anything that will qualify you for such a divine blessing. One of my sons-in-the-Lord in the United States once shared his testimony thus: "The last time the General Overseer (G.O.) was here, my pastor told me I had been chosen to drive him throughout the duration of his visit I tried to explain that I was preparing for a major examination and might not be able to. However, the pastor insisted. In the end, I decided that since the G.O would only be spending one day, I could manage to combine the driving assignment with my preparation for the crucial examination. To my surprise the G.O. spent a whole week. When he was finally leaving, he simply said to me "God bless you". To the glory of God, despite the limited time I had for studying, I passed my examinations with flying colors and I got a new job. Now that the G.O. is here on another ministerial visit, I must be the one to drive him". You will never miss your reward in Jesus' name.

 

Elisha was committed to the business of the kingdom; that was why the only thing he wanted from Elijah was a double portion of his spirit He knew if he had what he would use for God's work he would get every other thing as promised in Matthew 6:33. God is looking for believers who are committed to kingdom business. Will you be available? As you work for God and serve His anointed ministers, God will remember your labor of love and bless you tremendously in the mighty name of Jesus.

 

ACTION POINT:

Think of what you can do to extend the frontiers of God's Kingdom on earth and begin to act decisively today.

’Twas believing on His name, hallelujah!

I trusted and He saved my soul.

Daily Motivational Quote for today Monday 10th May 2021: Being positive in hard times of life will help you to overcome sooner


Life is too short to wake up in the morning with regrets. So love the people who treat you right and forget about the ones who don’t.


Being positive in the hard times of life will help you to overcome it sooner and effectively than being negative about it.

 

 When everything is wrong, fight and don't give up until it's right.

OPEN HEAVENS DAILY DEVOTIONAL FOR MONDAY 10TH MAY, 2021: EXPECTING A BETTER TOMORROW

OPEN HEAVENS DAILY DEVOTIONAL FOR MONDAY 10TH MAY, 2021: EXPECTING A BETTER TOMORROW

THEME: EXPECTING A BETTER TOMORROW


MEMORISE:

But as it is written, Eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered into the heart of man, the things which God hath prepared for them that love Him. 1 Corinthians 2:9


READ: 1 Kings 19:19-21 

19. So he departed thence, and found Elisha the son of Shaphat, who was plowing with twelve yoke of oxen before him, and he with the twelfth; and Elijah passed by him, and cast his mantle upon him.

20. And he left the oxen, and ran after Elijah, and said, Let me, I pray thee, kiss my father and my mother, and then I will follow thee. And he said unto him, Go back again; for what have I done to thee?

21. And he returned back from him, and took a yoke of oxen, and slew them, and boiled their flesh with the instruments of the oxen, and gave unto the people, and they did eat. Then he arose, and went after Elijah, and ministered unto him.


MESSAGE:



Some people do not get the best from God because they hold on to what they think is good, and miss out on something better. Elisha was rich; he was the son of one of the wealthiest farmers of his era. By today’s valuation, his father could be said to have had twelve tractors working on his large farmland. Any farmer who had twelve tractors, without doubt, can be classified as a multimillionaire. Elisha was comfortable; however, God had something greater for him.

 Don’t be among those who settle for the minimum level of prosperity while the maximum is begging for possession. God wants to take you to the highest level of wealth attainable. Elisha thought he was wealthy, but he did not know that a day would come when kings would serve him and call him “Father!” He thought he was going to die a rich farmer but God had a better plan for him. God has a glorious plan for you too. Presidents will serve you before you leave this world.

Elisha was wise. When he encountered God, he traded his level of achievement for a higher one by allowing God to have His way in his life. Elisha surrendered; he gave up sugar to receive honey. On the day the mantle of Elijah fell upon him, his life changed. God brought Elisha to the realm of ultimate greatness. He knew then that to receive ultimate greatness from God, he needed to surrender what he was holding on to. Beloved, you must offer God what appears to be your best at the moment, so that He can give you what is better than your best. Peter and the disciples did the same in Mark 10:28, and were eventually rewarded:

"…Lo, we have left all, and have followed Thee.”

How will God give you the best He has in store for you? What will God do to make you rich beyond your wildest imagination? I don’t really know. However, one thing I know is that God can do anything just to bless you. Whatever He has promised, He will definitely fulfil. If you are expecting a better tomorrow, be prepared to give up and surrender your best to God today. He will surely reciprocate by giving you something better than your best.


PRAYER POINT:

Father, please help me to surrender all to You, so that what I consider to be good will be replaced by those better things You have for me, in the mighty name of Jesus.


HYMNAL: TAKE MY LIFE, AND LET IT BE

Take my life, and let it be

Consecrated, Lord to Thee;

Take my moments and my days,

Let them flow in ceaseless praise,

Let them flow in ceaseless praise.


Take my hands, and let them move

At the impulse of Thy love;

Take my feet, and let them be

Swift and beautiful for Thee,

Swift and beautiful for Thee.


Take my voice and let me sing

Always, only, for my King;

Take my lips and let them be

Filled with messages from Thee,

Filled with messages from Thee.


Take my silver and my gold;

Not a mite would I withhold;

Take my intellect, and use

Every power as Thou shalt choose,

Every power as Thou shalt choose.


Take my will and make it Thine,

It shall be no longer mine:

Take my heart, it is Thine own;

It shall be Thy royal throne,

It shall be Thy royal throne.


Take my love, my Lord, I pour

At Thy feet its treasure store;

Take myself, and I will be

Ever, only, all for Thee,

Ever, only, all for Thee.

OPEN HEAVENS DAILY DEVOTIONAL FOR SUNDAY 9TH MAY 2021: NO HOPELESSNESS IN GOD

THEME: NO HOPELESSNESS IN GOD

  

MEMORISE:

For there is hope of a tree, if it be cut down, that it will sprout again, and that the tender branch thereof will not cease. Job 14:7

 

READ: 2 Kings 4:1-7


1 Now there cried a certain woman of the wives of the sons of the prophets unto Elisha, saying, Thy servant my husband is dead; and thou knowest that thy servant did fear the LORD: and the creditor is come to take unto him my two sons to be bondmen.


2 And Elisha said unto her, What shall I do for thee? tell me, what hast thou in the house? And she said, Thine handmaid hath not any thing in the house, save a pot of oil.


3 Then he said, Go, borrow thee vessels abroad of all thy neighbours, even empty vessels; borrow not a few.


4 And when thou art come in, thou shalt shut the door upon thee and upon thy sons, and shalt pour out into all those vessels, and thou shalt set aside that which is full.

5 So she went from him, and shut the door upon her and upon her sons, who brought the vessels to her; and she poured out.


6 And it came to pass, when the vessels were full, that she said unto her son, Bring me yet a vessel. And he said unto her, There is not a vessel more. And the oil stayed.


7 Then she came and told the man of God. And he said, Go, sell the oil, and pay thy debt, and live thou and thy children of the rest.

 

MESSAGE: 



When God steps into any situation, He turns things around. God can transform a debtor to someone who lends to nations, He can turn a destitute widow to the richest person in her community.


There is a beautiful story in the Scripture reading of today; it illustrates how God can change anyone's story provided the fellow is obedient. When you have an encounter with God, you only need to carry out the divine instructions given to you for your story to become a reference point of the wonders of God. The widow who had lost all hope, had an encounter with God through His prophet, Elisha and her story changed for good.

 

We can learn a few things from her. You would see that she desperately cried for help. Beloved, if any hopeless fellow will receive aid from the "Present Help in trouble" (Psalm 46:1), such a person must cry to God in desperation. God is eager to intervene in the affairs of those who will cry unto Him for help. Jeremiah 29 :13 says:

 "And ye shall seek me, and find me, when ye shall search for me with all your heart."

  

Anyone who makes the effort to seek God will surely find him. However, as long as you decide to manage without crying to God in prayer, you will remain in your present condition. When you are truly tired of your situation, like the woman in the Bible reading of today, you will cry out to God in desperation. The Bible did not say the widow had a chat with Elisha, rather it says that she cried unto Him because she was in desperate need of a miracle. She did not murmur before the prophet, neither did she grumble to attract his attention nor seek the sympathy of the people. Instead, she cried out for divine intervention, got Heaven's attention and her problem was permanently solved.

  

As you cry to God today, He will answer you and every hopeless situation in your life will turn around for good. Hope will rise for you and you will sing a new song of victory in the mighty name of Jesus.

  

ACTION POINT:

Cry unto God today and ask Him to intervene in your situation.

Resting in my Savior as my all in all,

Husband and wife decided to attend a new church, the husband drives in an expensive car valued #25,000.000.00 , each day they arrive church the husband will alight first, then he will move to the passenger seat to open the car for his wife to alight, 


The practice of opening the car for his wife continued over time, later other women in the church began to envy the woman, accordingly they began to challenge their poor husbands at home for not treating them like the man who opens car for his wife, that after all, the man is rich yet treats his wife like a queen.


It became a serious issue in some families. While women were praising the man , the men regarded him as foolish man. When the matter got to the man's notice,, he requested permission from the pastor to address the church and his permission was granted


He said:


 The reason I open the car for my wife is because the car lock is faulty and can only be opened from outside, it will cost me about #500,000.00 to fix because it has a security chain that connects other systems in the car and I do not have such money now. It is not my normal style to open car door for my wife, we are just managing the car problem.

19 ways to fix your Wife - when she is falling apart

19 ways to fix your Wife - when she is falling apart

Very interesting food for thought for every man around the world 

____________________


Your wife can be dying in silence while still performing her wifely duties. You will need to know her to know when she needs to be fixed.

.

When a woman is always moody, cries a lot, yells on Children, can easily sleep or sleeps a lot, she may be battling with something you are not careful enough to see.

.

A real man will not allow his wife to fall apart without fixing her and making her better and happy.

If you discover your wife is falling apart, watch out and fix the following:

.

Pic by wikihow.com

1. *CHECK IF YOU ARE THE PROBLEM*

You might be her problem, but out of her respect and love for you, she may not tell you. Ask, let her talk sincerely

.

2. *BE AWARE OF HER RESPONSIBILITIES*

Get to know how her work load is killing her. Regardless of whether she stays at home or goes to work, do you know what she does all day? If you don’t, ask her. Her to-do list is probably overflowing with tasks that far outweighs her time and energy.

.

3. *BE APPRECIATIVE*

Be mindful of her needs and appreciative of her sacrifices. The work a woman does at home can be too common that nobody will appreciate her for them, this can be killing her. Appreciate your wife

.

4. *GET INVOLVED BEFORE SHE BURNS OUT*

Don’t just be appreciative, but get involved. The best time to begin helping your wife is now. Don’t wait until she breaks down to offer a helping hand.

.

5. *GET MACHINE*

Get all the machine needed for her work at home (the ones you can afford). Dish washer, gas cooker, refrigerator, oven, laundering Machine, etc

.

6. *BE AN ACTIVE PARTICIPANT*

Be totally involved at home, stop delegating parenting and family life. Don’t be a “visiting Professor”, be an active partner in this business of your life. It takes two to parent. It takes two to make a marriage work. It takes two to run a household. Be fully involved in every aspect of your family life.

.

7. *HOLD HER*

Hold her like a lover and a friend. Place your hands on her shoulder, her laps, hold her hands, just hold her and let her feel you.

.

8. *JUST LISTEN*

Most men are known to be good talker but very bad listeners. At times what your wife needs is for you to just listen. Do not interrupt, let her unburden, let her talk. Sometimes the best way for a woman to reset is by getting all of her thoughts out. Let your wife talk through her feelings and problems. Show empathy. Listen carefully. Ask questions. Be fully engaged in the conversation.

.

9. *BE A PARTNER NOT A TEACHER*

Most men do fall into the “Teaching trap” when they are supposed to be a partner, showing love and consideration. Do not blame, just be there for her. Just listen. That’s all you need to do. And if she wants you to offer solutions, she’ll ask for them

.

10. *GIVE HER HOPE*

No matter what happens, don’t ever raise up your hands in surrender. Giving up, crying or weeping will hurt your wife more. Encourage her. Let her know what you love about her. Help her see the good in any situation. Avoid being critical or negative. When she has hit the rock bottom, be the man who lifts her up, and brings light and hope back into her life.

.

Very interesting food for thought for every man around the world 

____________________


Your wife can be dying in silence while still performing her wifely duties. You will need to know her to know when she needs to be fixed.

.

When a woman is always moody, cries a lot, yells on Children, can easily sleep or sleeps a lot, she may be battling with something you are not careful enough to see.

.

A real man will not allow his wife to fall apart without fixing her and making her better and happy.

If you discover your wife is falling apart, watch out and fix the following:

1. *CHECK IF YOU ARE THE PROBLEM*

You might be her problem, but out of her respect and love for you, she may not tell you. Ask, let her talk sincerely

.

2. *BE AWARE OF HER RESPONSIBILITIES*

Get to know how her work load is killing her. Regardless of whether she stays at home or goes to work, do you know what she does all day? If you don’t, ask her. Her to-do list is probably overflowing with tasks that far outweighs her time and energy.

.

3. *BE APPRECIATIVE*

Be mindful of her needs and appreciative of her sacrifices. The work a woman does at home can be too common that nobody will appreciate her for them, this can be killing her. Appreciate your wife

.

4. *GET INVOLVED BEFORE SHE BURNS OUT*

Don’t just be appreciative, but get involved. The best time to begin helping your wife is now. Don’t wait until she breaks down to offer a helping hand.

.

5. *GET MACHINE*

Get all the machine needed for her work at home (the ones you can afford). Dish washer, gas cooker, refrigerator, oven, laundering Machine, etc

.

6. *BE AN ACTIVE PARTICIPANT*

Be totally involved at home, stop delegating parenting and family life. Don’t be a “visiting Professor”, be an active partner in this business of your life. It takes two to parent. It takes two to make a marriage work. It takes two to run a household. Be fully involved in every aspect of your family life.

.

7. *HOLD HER*

Hold her like a lover and a friend. Place your hands on her shoulder, her laps, hold her hands, just hold her and let her feel you.

.

8. *JUST LISTEN*

Most men are known to be good talker but very bad listeners. At times what your wife needs is for you to just listen. Do not interrupt, let her unburden, let her talk. Sometimes the best way for a woman to reset is by getting all of her thoughts out. Let your wife talk through her feelings and problems. Show empathy. Listen carefully. Ask questions. Be fully engaged in the conversation.

.

9. *BE A PARTNER NOT A TEACHER*

Most men do fall into the “Teaching trap” when they are supposed to be a partner, showing love and consideration. Do not blame, just be there for her. Just listen. That’s all you need to do. And if she wants you to offer solutions, she’ll ask for them

.

10. *GIVE HER HOPE*

No matter what happens, don’t ever raise up your hands in surrender. Giving up, crying or weeping will hurt your wife more. Encourage her. Let her know what you love about her. Help her see the good in any situation. Avoid being critical or negative. When she has hit the rock bottom, be the man who lifts her up, and brings light and hope back into her life.
