RCCG Open Heaven 11 June 2018 Daily Devotional

Topic: The Glory of a Consecrated Life

Memorise: And at the end of ten days their countenances appeared fairer and fatter in flesh than all the children which did eat the portion of the king’s meat. Daniel 1:15
Read: Daniel 1:5-20 (KJV)

5 And the king appointed them a daily provision of the king’s meat, and of the wine which he drank: so nourishing them three years, that at the end thereof they might stand before the king.
6 Now among these were of the children of Judah, Daniel, Hananiah, Mishael, and Azariah:
7 Unto whom the prince of the eunuchs gave names: for he gave unto Daniel the name of Belteshazzar; and to Hananiah, of Shadrach; and to Mishael, of Meshach; and to Azariah, of Abednego.
8 But Daniel purposed in his heart that he would not defile himself with the portion of the king’s meat, nor with the wine which he drank: therefore he requested of the prince of the eunuchs that he might not defile himself.
9 Now God had brought Daniel into favour and tender love with the prince of the eunuchs.
10 And the prince of the eunuchs said unto Daniel, I fear my lord the king, who hath appointed your meat and your drink: for why should he see your faces worse liking than the children which are of your sort? then shall ye make me endanger my head to the king.
11 Then said Daniel to Melzar, whom the prince of the eunuchs had set over Daniel, Hananiah, Mishael, and Azariah,
12 Prove thy servants, I beseech thee, ten days; and let them give us pulse to eat, and water to drink.
13 Then let our countenances be looked upon before thee, and the countenance of the children that eat of the portion of the king’s meat: and as thou seest, deal with thy servants.

14 So he consented to them in this matter, and proved them ten days.
15 And at the end of ten days their countenances appeared fairer and fatter in flesh than all the children which did eat the portion of the king’s meat.
16 Thus Melzar took away the portion of their meat, and the wine that they should drink; and gave them pulse.
17 As for these four children, God gave them knowledge and skill in all learning and wisdom: and Daniel had understanding in all visions and dreams.
18 Now at the end of the days that the king had said he should bring them in, then the prince of the eunuchs brought them in before Nebuchadnezzar.
19 And the king communed with them; and among them all was found none like Daniel, Hananiah, Mishael, and Azariah: therefore stood they before the king.
20 And in all matters of wisdom and understanding, that the king enquired of them, he found them ten times better than all the magicians and astrologers that were in all his realm.

Message: Open Heaven 11 June 2018
A while ago, I was led to make a statement which some people did not take seriously, because it did not meet with faith in their hearts. The statement was that the use of excessive make-up is a sign of inferiority complex. I went further to say that people only try to “make up” for what is not good enough.

RCCG Open Heaven 11 June 2018 Daily Devotional – The Glory of a Consecrated Life

I strongly believe that the Almighty God is the most perfect designer, and in His infinite wisdom He has designed you the way He feels is best for His glory. After all, in Revelation 4:11, the Holy Spirit reveals that He created us for His pleasure:

“Thou art worthy, O Lord, to receive glory and honour and prayer: for thou hast created all things, and for thy pleasure they are and were created.”

RCCG Open Heaven 11 June 2018 Daily Devotional By Pastor E. A. Adeboye The Glory of a Consecrated Life

If God created you for His pleasure, it means that what any other person says about how your mouth is shaped, your colour, your height, the hair on your head or even your accent is irrelevant! The reason for the inferiority complex a lot of people suffer from can be traced to the fact that the glory of God is absent from their lives. Not only was Adam satisfied with they way God made him before the fall, he also appreciated the looks of his wife and admired her with a passion (Genesis 2:23-25). However, after the fall, he was not only fed up with himself, he also saw fault in the wife God “gave” him (Genesis 3:10-12).

Today’s Bible reading narrates the determination of some young Hebrew men who decided to live a consecrated life, in spite of the fact that they were captives in a strange land. This should serve as a lesson to Christians who live outside their homeland and decided to throw decency out of the window because of the prevailing situation in the land of their sojourn. Beloved, I implore you to seek something that is needful today, which is the glory of God upon your life through living a consecrated life. Once the glory of God is upon you, you will be the delight of your generation.

Sin robs man of God’s glory, and when God’s glory is out of a man’s life, his or her life becomes miserable and susceptible to demonic attacks. It was the glory of God upon Daniel that shut the mouths of lions that would have devoured him. It was the glory of God on the young Hebrew men’s lives that made them look fairer and fatter than their peers. May the glory of the Lord come upon you today as you consecrate your life to the Almighty in Jesus’ Name.

Prayer Point: Open Heavens 11 June 2018
Father, please grant me grace to live a consecrated life, and cover me with Your glory.

Sing hymn 15 – NEARER MY GOD TO THEE

Nearer, my God, to Thee,
Nearer to Thee;
E’ en though it be a cross
That raiseth me,
Still all my song shall be
Nearer, my God, to Thee,
Nearer, my God, to Thee,
Nearer to Thee.

Though, like a wanderer
The sun gone down,
Darkness comes over me,
My rest a stone;
Yet in my dreams I’d be
Nearer, my God, to Thee
Nearer, my God, to Thee
Nearer to Thee.

There let me see the sight,
An open heaven;
All that thou sendest me,
In mercy given;
Angles to beckon me
Nearer, my God, to Thee
Nearer, my God, to Thee
Nearer to Thee

Then, with my walking thoughts
Bright with Thy praise,
Out of my stony griefs
Bethel I’ll raise,
So by my woes to be
Nearer, my God, to Thee,
Nearer, my God, to Thee,
Nearer to Thee.

Andrew Wommack 22 September 2018 Daily Devotional – The Two Greatest Commands

Published

Andrew Wommack 22 September 2018 Daily Devotional 

Topic: The Two Greatest Commands

Scripture: Matthew 22:36 “Master, which is the great commandment in the law? Jesus said unto him, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind. This is the first and great commandment. And the second is like unto it, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself.“

Text: Matthew 22:34-46

Jesus revealed that all of the Old Testament laws were designed to instruct us how to love God and love others. Therefore, the two commands that dealt directly with loving God and others (Lev. 19:18 and Dt. 6:5) were the most important.

Message: The religious leaders had become so obsessed with keeping every minor detail of the law that they had lost sight of its ultimate purpose. They neither loved God nor their fellow man, yet they thought they were keeping the law.

The same thing is happening today. Some of the cruelest acts of men towards their fellow men have been done in the name of the Lord by people who thought they were defending God’s holy commandments. However, if we violate one of the two greatest commandments in an effort to enforce some other commandment, then we are misapplying God’s Word just as these religious Jews did.

Andrew Wommack 22 September 2018 Daily Devotional – The Two Greatest Commands

The Old Testament law and the New Testament concept of grace compels men to the same end, that is to love God and their fellowmen. However, the motivations to this end are different. The Old Testament law motivated men to love God and their fellowman through fear of punishment if they failed to comply. The New Testament concept of grace freely gives men a God-kind of love that is unconditional and tells them to love others as they are loved.

It is possible to display actions of holiness, but not love God. It is impossible for God’s kind of love not to produce holiness. Holiness is a fruit and not a root of loving God.

TREM Daily Devotional 22 September 2018 

Topic: When You See Jesus

Scripture: “In the year that king Uzziah died I saw also the LORD sitting upon a throne, high and lifted up, and his train filled the temple.” Isaiah 6:1 (KJV)

Message: One thing is to be born again, but another thing is to truly see the Lord and what He has done on your behalf. There are many who are born again, but are yet to see Him as He is. The scripture declares that in the year king Uzziah died, Isaiah saw the Lord. That means Isaiah had been a prophet, called and anointed by God but had not seen Him. He has not come to terms with the God that called him and the God that was using him. God had to get Uzziah out of the way because Uzziah had become like a god to Isaiah. Thereafter, as soon as Uzziah was taken out of the way, his eyes were open for the first time to the God that called him.

TREM Daily Devotional 22 September 2018 – When You See Jesus

There are many of us believers that love God with all our heart but we’ve not truly seen Him because He is not reflected in the way we do things. Yes, you’re born again, you speak in tongues, you’re in church at all times but you have not really seen Him.

Imagine what happened to Isaiah after he beheld the Lord; he immediately realized his filth. He said to himself “…Woe is me!”, because he was then able to see himself in the light of God. “Woe is me, for I am undone; because I am a man of unclean lips…” In other words, he was not qualified to come before the Lord. At that point, an angel from God’s presence placed hot coal on his mouth, and declared that his iniquity had been taken away, and his sins purged. Immediately something happened to him. Guess what Isaiah’s response was to God’s grace and mercy? He immediately made himself available for the Master’s use.

TREM Daily Devotional 22 September 2018 – When You See Jesus

Beloved, when you see Jesus, everything else loses value. He becomes the center of your life’s endeavours. Nothing will be too big a price to pay for the sake of Jesus, because He paid the ultimate price for your sake.
