Verse Of The Day : I can do all things through Christ which strengthens me. Philippians 4:13

LISTEN : You can’t be different from the capacity of your mind. You’re what you think. How you think affects what you do, and what you do will determine what you become in the long run. If you think it is possible to succeed in life, win the fight against terminal diseases, discouragement, failure, etc., you can achieve that through the help of the Holy Spirit. But if you think in your mind that nothing is possible, trust me, the devil will help you achieve nothing but misery. My dear, starting off your day in victory will make you never to recognise any form of impossibility. It will cause you to walk by faith and enjoy the dividends of faith. When your heart is full of faith, life is full of possibilities. Faith makes all things possible. Faith brings us up to where God is. The realm where God dwells is the realm of possibilities; and no one can access that realm without faith. The Bible says, “For with God nothing shall be impossible.” (Luke 1:37). Beloved, never lose hope in life or walk as some defeated folk; because where God is present everything is possible. So, cheer up! You can tap into such force of possibilities by faith in God. The Bible says, “… If you can believe, all things are possible to him that believes.” (Mark 9:23). My dear, can you see that you can’t be limited by any circumstance if your faith is alive? So, no matter what you are going through, exercise faith and learn to say, “I can do all things through Christ which strengthens me.” (Philippians 4:13). Lean on God and you’ll receive supernatural ability to overcome the impossible. Be wise!

Having read today’s devotional, what is expected of you?
1. Don’t be stopped by any circumstance, rather press on to victory.
2. Stop depending on your own understanding, rather lean on God’s power.
3. Always believe you can do all things through Christ and you’ll be strengthened.
4. Make decision to start off each day with victory in view, and you will not be defeated.

Prayer : Heavenly Father, nothing is impossible to you. Therefore, help me to walk in faith and overcome in life, in Jesus’ name, amen.

Reflection : He who leans on God will receive supernatural strength and ability to do what seems impossible.

Quote : “You can’t be different from the capacity of your mind. You’re what you think.”

Faith Confession : In Jesus’ name, I confess that faith makes all things possible. Therefore, I will grow my faith and receive the blessings, amen.

TOPIC : HOW TO ENJOY PEACE OF GOD

Author : Bishop Julius Okarike

Verse Of The Day : Great peace have they which love your law: and nothing shall offend them. Psalms 119:165

LISTEN : You can enjoy the peace of God. Yes, the seed of peace is planted in your heart the day you decide to obey the word of God; because there is no peace for the wicked. Peace is priceless and wonderful. Nothing is secured where peace is absent. Prosperity and development thrive in the ‘soil of peace.’ Sadly, peace has become a rare commodity in the world today because of wickedness of men. Many are driven by selfishness and greed, as a result, they can do anything to achieve their selfish aims, including instigating crisis and war. They enjoy crisis and war, and forget that loss of peace can result in loss of life. Absence of peace will create insecurity, fear, anxiety, etc. However, in a world of evil and wickedness, lovers of God can still find peace. When the world can’t find peace because of troubles, lovers of God can experience abundant peace in the midst of troubles. Beloved, peace is possible in Christ Jesus. Jesus said to His disciples, “I have told you these things so that in me you may have peace. In the world you have trouble and suffering, but take courage – I have conquered the world.” (John 16:33). The mystery behind the peace of God the believer enjoys in the midst of troubles is based on his relationship with God. The believer derives comfort and peace from the word of God. As a result, nothing can hurt or offend him. He is not afraid of bad news because his God is in control. Beloved, is your life characterised by crisis and war? Have faith in God and you’ll enjoy great peace. Be wise!

Prayer : Today, I receive the peace of God into my heart to end my crisis, amen.
