“This is what the LORD says: ‘Because the Arameans think the LORD is a god of the hills and not a god of the valleys, I will deliver this vast army into your hands, and you will know that I am the LORD.'”
The Israelites defeated the army of King Ben-Hadad on the top of a mountain. One of his assistants said to him, “Their gods are the gods of the hills. That’s why they were stronger than us. If we fight them in the valleys, we will certainly defeat them.” So Ben-Hadad attacked the Israelites in the valley. God said to the Israelites, “They think I’m just the God of the mountains and not the valleys. I will help you defeat them to show them that I am the God of both.”
When we’re on the mountain, getting good breaks and life is good, we know God is with us. But sometimes when we’re in the valley, we think, “God, where are You? Why is this happening to me?” Be encouraged. Our God is also the God of the valleys. David says, “He’s a very present help in times of trouble.” When you’re in the valley, God is right there with you, a very present help.
Prayer for Today
“Father, thank You that You are God of both my mountains and my valleys. Thank You that when I am in the valleys, You will show out that You are my Lord. I believe and declare that You are my very present help in any time of trouble. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.”

Today’s Word with Joel Osteen 2 March 2021 Daily Devotional
Hebrews 12:1 says that seeing we are surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses, let us run the race that is set before us. Can I tell you, all of heaven is cheering for you? You are not running alone. Heaven’s grandstands are packed with people who believe in you. Jesus says that when you’re discouraged and tempted to give up, look up and by faith hear the cheers from the heavenly saints.
Imagine every morning if you received a personal text from Abraham, Sarah, David, Moses, Ruth, or Noah. When you woke up each day, there was a message telling you how much they believe in you and how you are well able to make it. After all that these heroes of the faith went through, their words carry some weight. If you could hear them, they’re saying, Stay encouraged. Victory is coming. Favor is coming. We made it, and you’re going to make it. God did it for us; He’s going to do it for you.
Prayer for Today
Father, thank You for the heroes of faith whose lives help show me how to live for You and who are cheering me on from heaven today. Thank You for their messages of perseverance and overcoming hardships. Help me to look up and listen and draw strength for my race. In Jesus Name, Amen.

Daily Hope with Rick Warren Devotional 2 March 2021 Today’s Message
Topic: How Do I Know I’m Saved?
Today’s Scripture: “It is by grace you have been saved, through faith—and this is not from yourselves, it is the gift of God—not by works, so that no one can boast.” Ephesians 2:8-9 (NIV)
Daily Hope with Rick Warren Devotional 2 March 2021 Message:
In Luke 23:42, one of the criminals hanging next to Jesus on the cross prayed, “Jesus, remember me when you come into your kingdom” (NIV).
By that time, Jesus was famous for doing miracles. But notice the man didn’t ask Jesus to stop his pain, although he would have been in excruciating pain. He didn’t ask Jesus to save him from death either.
He said, “Jesus, remember me.” Why? Because he knew his deepest need was salvation from sin and a home in heaven. And he believed Jesus could provide it.
The Bible says in Acts 16:31, “Believe in the Lord Jesus, and you will be saved” (NIV).
So how do you know for sure that you’re saved from sin? How do you know you’re going to heaven when you die? How can you be certain? How can you eliminate your doubt?
Your assurance of salvation doesn’t come from what you do, because you can’t earn your salvation. It’s not from your feelings, because feelings come and go.
So what can make you sure of your salvation? The promise of God’s Word. If God says it, that settles it, because God cannot lie. You can trust the promise of God’s Word. You can rest in it.
Jesus replied to the criminal hanging on the cross, “I assure you, today you will be with me in paradise” (Luke 23:43 NLT). Your assurance of salvation is the same: God promises you will be in heaven with him one day if you believe in faith.

Seeds of Destiny 2 March 2021 Devotional Guide By Dr. Paul Enenche
TOPIC: Relationship Affects Destiny
SCRIPTURE: Iron sharpeneth iron; so a man sharpeneth the countenance of his friend. Proverbs 27:17.
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: Relationships can either bring you acceleration or establish your stagnation.
Seeds of Destiny 2 March 2021 Devotional Message:
It has been confirmed that the right relationship is key to destiny fulfilment. Your relationship can either make or mar your life and destiny.
Now, I will like you to take note of these three key thoughts on relationships:
i. Relationships can either bring you acceleration or establish your stagnation (Genesis 13:14)
There are people who entered your life and your life shifted; and there are those who hung around you and you are stagnated. For example, until Lot left Abraham, Abraham’s destiny couldn’t open up (Gen. 13:14). That is why it is very important to observe and pray well before you marry someone or get into any relationship.
There are people whose best days in life were the days before their marriage. That will not be your portion in Jesus’ Name.
ii. Relationship can contribute to your preservation or facilitate your destruction
The wrong relationship can kill a person physically. A person can die prematurely because of being found with the wrong people at the wrong place. There are those who have died other people’s death, and others have lost properties because of wrong associations (Jonah 1:5). But that will never be your portion in Jesus’ Name.
iii. Relationships can never leave you neutral
Your relationship is either adding something to you or taking something from you. Your relationship will either sharpen your life (Proverbs 27:17) or leave you blunt. No one relates with you on a neutral ground; everyone either adds or takes something from you.
Beloved, make up your mind to engage wisdom in relationship if you want to reach your future.
Remember this: Relationships can either bring you acceleration or establish your stagnation.
1. Give attention to your relationships in order to have a buoyant destiny. Relate carefully.
2. Make up your mind to engage in profitable relationships.
PRAYER: Lord, I ask that You give me quality and productive relationships that will facilitate my destiny fulfilment, Lord, in Jesus’ Name.
