Topic: Careless Warriors

Memorise: Take ye heed, watch and pray: for ye know not when the time is. Mark 13:33

Read: 1st Samuel 30:1-6 (KJV)

1 And it came to pass, when David and his men were come to Ziklag on the third day, that the Amalekites had invaded the south, and Ziklag, and smitten Ziklag, and burned it with fire;
2 And had taken the women captives, that were therein: they slew not any, either great or small, but carried them away, and went on their way.
3 So David and his men came to the city, and, behold, it was burned with fire; and their wives, and their sons, and their daughters, were taken captives.
4 Then David and the people that were with him lifted up their voice and wept, until they had no more power to weep.
5 And David’s two wives were taken captives, Ahinoam the Jezreelitess, and Abigail the wife of Nabal the Carmelite.
6 And David was greatly distressed; for the people spake of stoning him, because the soul of all the people was grieved, every man for his sons and for his daughters: but David encouraged himself in the Lord his God. Open Heavens 13 February 2018

Message: Open Heavens 13 February 2018
I have watched with pity and dismay as many children of God, particularly ministers of God, carelessly fight spiritual battles at the expense of their own lives and family. If you desire to be triumphant in every area of life, you need to pay close attention to what the Lord Jesus Christ told His disciples in today’s memory verse. You need to apply caution and be strategic in all that you do. To see the big picture of the challenges confronting you, you need to watch. To get direction and strength from heaven to help you confront these challenges, you need to pray. (Open Heavens 13 February 2018)

In today’s Bible text, we have the story of a careless group of warriors: David and his mighty men of valour. While they went about fighting for survival as mercenaries, they left their own camp unprotected. Before they returned from their raid, their own camp had been raided and burnt, and their wives and children were taken away as captives by the enemy. open heavens 13 February 2018. When they discovered what the enemy had done, these men of war were so distressed that they wept like babies. They didn’t just weep, they wept until they had no more strength to weep. In their grief, they even revolted against their leader, David, and spoke of stoning him to death. However, faced with his volatile situation, David did something worthy of emulation: he encouraged himself in the Lord (1st Samuel 30:6).

There are a good number of lessons we can learn from this story; first of which is that you fight the Lord’s battles, even the Lord of Hosts expects to watch your back. Our God does not expect you to be presumptuous. The words of our Lord Jesus Christ concerning counting the cost before building a tower or fighting a foe are pointers to strategic planning in spiritual warfare (Luke 14:28-32). Secondly, there should be division of labour in spiritual warfare. We should not all be at the war front at the same time. All bases must be covered. The early church realised this truth on time, and so the apostles gave themselves to the ministry of the word and prayer while they appointed others to look after the administration of corporate social responsibilities (Acts 6:1-7).

Thirdly, persons in leadership positions should always be proactive. David’s proactive move to seek God’s face was what saved the day. He inquired of the Lord on how to go about recovering all that they had lost (1st Samuel 30:7-8). At the end of the day, what they should have done in the first place was what they later did. They learnt that they should always organise themselves into bands with different roles. When they pursed to recover all, not all of them pursued after the raiders, but when they shared the spoils of war, those who waited behind to look after their stuff. The principle did not go down well with some of David’s men who did not understand it (1st Samuel 30:21-24). Indeed, God’s ways are not our ways (Isaiah 55:8)!

Key Point: RCCG Open Heavens 13 February 2018
Watch and pray as you engage in spiritual warfare.

TREM Daily Devotional 19 September 2018

TREM Daily Devotional 19 September 2018

Topic: Rest On The Grace Of God

Scripture: “Stand fast therefore in the liberty wherewith Christ hath made us free, and be not entangled again with the yoke of bondage”. Galatians 5:1 (KJV)

Message: Today, I want to ask you a very important question. Where are you resting? Are you resting in what the newspapers say or what your tradition says? Or what one lying prophet told you? Or are you resting on the infallible word of God which gives assurance and stability?

Let’s consider the story of Samson as documented in the book of Judges chapter 16. When the Philistines shaved his hairs, they removed the seven locks. Seven means Sabbath, which is rest. When he was resting with his locks on his hair, the Philistines could not get him. The moment they shaved his hair, they took away his source of strength. Then, were they able to remove his eyes, tie him, arrest, imprison and humiliate him.

TREM Daily Devotional 19 September 2018 – Rest On The Grace Of God

The church has been humiliated over the years because we have refused to rest. We are living as if Christ did not die, and this baffles me. Beloved He died, He was buried and He rose triumphant over death, hell and grave. Now, you have been quickened, raised and made to sit with him. We are called to sit, not to struggle. He raised you up to show you what He has completed before you came on the scene. He has completed the job, the business, the finance, your Christian life, ministry, family, marriage, and the babies. Our Christian life begins from the point of “It is finished”. That’s why Paul could say; “Now thanks be unto God who always causes us to triumph in Christ…” (2 Cor. 2:14). That means, before the battle even started, the victory is already yours.

TREM Daily Devotional 19 September 2018 – Rest On The Grace Of God

When they shaved his hair, Samson got up and realized that he was without strength. He soon realized his eyes were gone, his freedom was gone. That’s what happens when you walk in the law. You lose your freedom. You then discover that you are constantly under condemnation, accusation and judgment, when the alternative is to walk in the liberty wherewith Christ has set you free. Child of God, the law cannot give you rest. Rest only comes from your knowledge of the finished work of Christ. Choose to rest.

Deeper Life Daily Manna 19 September 2018 Devotional

Deeper Life Daily Manna 19 September 2018 Devotional by Pastor W.F. Kumuyi

Topic: For A Fruitful Land!

Text: Isaiah 32:9-20 (KJV)

Key Verse: “Until the spirit be poured upon us from on high, and the wilderness be a fruitful field, and the fruitful field be counted for a forest“ (Isaiah 32:15).

MESSAGE: Deeper Life Daily Manna 19 September 2018 Devotional – For A Fruitful Land!

God has always expressed great displeasure towards any society that allows vices such as corruption, profanity, violence and injustice to characterise its system. Such society has often been visited with divine judgment.

In Israel, at this time, particularly in Judah, the sin of idolatry appeared good to all. The people turned their backs on God and concentrated on pleasures; they no longer looked unto the holy One of Israel, neither did they seek the Lord. Instead they went down to Egypt for help (Isaiah 31:1). Judah was soon to be destroyed and taken into captivity. In the light of this, God, in His infinite mercy, sounded an alarm to the careless women who remained at ease. The requirement for their deliverance and fruitfulness was to tremble and cry out to God in humility until He poured out His Spirit of righteousness upon the land.

Deeper Life Daily Manna 19 September 2018 Devotional – For A Fruitful Land!

Human depravity such as moral decadence, corruption, political dysfunctions, cultism, social vices, love for self more than God and so on are the fruit of ungodliness with which Satan destroys societies today.

For our land to experience true fruitfulness (spiritually and physically), believers must not fold their hands and stay aloof. We must rise up as individuals, families and congregations in humility and passionately, persistently seek the Lord in prayers so that His Spirit can reign in the affairs of our land. Then shall our dry and barren land become a fruitful field.

Thought For The Day: A land devoid of God’s presence is full of darkness and disaster.

Dunamis Seeds of Destiny 19 September 2018 Daily Devotional 

Topic: What Are You Living For?

Scripture: “6 For I am now ready to be offered, and the time of my departure is at hand. 7 I have fought a good fight, I have finished my course, I have kept the faith: 8 Henceforth there is laid up for me a crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous judge, shall give me at that day: and not to me only, but unto all them also that love his appearing.” – 2 Timothy 4:6-8.

Thought For The Day: The most important thing to do on Earth is to do His Will.

Message: We live in a generation with inverted priority; a generation where many people do not understand the essence of life. Many people think that life is all about making ends meet; they think that once one has a job and is able to meet the basic necessities of life like having food to eat,”clothes to wear and the ability to pay one’s children’s school fees, one is living. The question is, is that all that life is all about? Not at all!

Now, if working, receiving salary and meeting basic needs of life is not the essence of life, what then is the essence of life?
It is living to do God’s Will!

Dunamis Seeds of Destiny 19 September 2018 Daily Devotional – What Are You Living For?

God has a plan for us in each area of our lives – how to serve Him, who to get married to, the kind of work to do etc. Let me give you a practical example”: in my own life,”I planned, studied and trained to be a medical doctor, but later in life, I discovered His Will for me which is to be a preacher; that is why I am preaching the gospel today. So, the most important thing to do on Earth is to do His Will.

Beloved, I would like you to assess your life and ask yourself a question, ‘Am I doing the Will of God for my life? Am I in the centre of His will?
My counsel is, locate God’s Will in every area of your life and decide to live according to His Will for your life.

Remember this”: The most important thing to do on Earth is to do His Will.
