Open Heaven Thursday 4th February 2021 MESSAGE:
Many people do not get the benefits God has promised in His word simply because they do not follow the instructions attached to those benefits. My mathematics background has made it easy for me to understand this scriptural principle. In mathematics, there are always conditions to be fulfilled to solve certain problems. It is the same in the kingdom of God; if you want the blessings, you must first fulfil the conditions.
Today’s memory verse did not just say “if you are willing”, it says you must also be obedient to eat the good of the land. I have been invited to Ministries where the Holy Communion is served in the morning or afternoon and I always politely decline from partaking. The Bible says it is the Lord’s Supper, not the Lord’s Breakfast or Lunch. It is very clear; the Communion is to be taken in the evening if you would get the benefits attached.
Some other people also say they have not been getting the benefits of paying tithes as promised in the Bible. Malachi 3:10 says:
“Bring ye ALL the tithes into the storehouse…”
The Scripture says ALL, not some; it also says you are to bring the tithes to His storehouse. If you take it anywhere else or do not bring ALL, you should not expect the benefits meant for faithful tithers.
My Father-in-the Lord once gave this analogy back in the day when the National Electric Power Authority (NEPA) was in charge of electricity distribution in Nigeria. He asked “If you find a NEPA pole fallen by the road as you are going to pay your electricity bill, and you decide to use the money meant to settle the bill to fund the repair, would you get a bill waiver at the NEPA office simply because you have used your money to erect their pole?” No, you would still be billed because the instruction is clear: you are to pay your bills into a designated account!
Beloved, when you see a blessing in the Bible that you want to claim, check thoroughly for all the conditions attached to it. Fulfil the conditions and then you can enjoy the blessing.
Make up your mind to always obey God’s commands, if you want His blessings.

Open Heaven Tuesday 2nd February 2021 HYMNAL:
HYMN 8 – HO! MY COMRADES, SEE THE SIGNAL
1. Ho! my comrades! see the signal,
Waving in the sky!
Reinforcements now appearing,
Victory in nigh!
“Hold the fort, for I am coming,”
Jesus signals still,
Wave the answer back to heaven,
“By Thy grace we will.”
2. See the mighty host advancing,
Satan leading on;
Mighty men around us falling,
Courage almost gone.
3. See the glorious banner waving,
Hear the trumpet blow;
In our Leader’s Name we triumph
Over every foe.
4. Fierce and long the battle rages,
But our help is near;
Onward comes our great commander,
Cheer, my comrades, cheer!

Joel Osteen Devotional 3 March 2021 – Better Is Coming
Topic: Better Is Coming
Ecclesiastes 7:8, AMPC – Better is the end of a thing than the beginning of it.
Today’s Word with Joel Osteen Devotional 3 March 2021
You may have had a rough start, but you don’t have to have a rough finish. Better is the end. Don’t keep dwelling on the negatives of the past. God is saying, Something better is coming. You may be going through a rough spot today, but better is coming. Don’t cancel out the better by dwelling on the regrets, the failures, and what didn’t work out. If your mind is always on yesterday, you’re going to move in that direction. Better is coming, healing is coming, and breakthroughs are coming.
You’re not defined by your past; you’re prepared by your past. If the past hadn’t happened, you wouldn’t be prepared for the better that is coming your way. You may have made some mistakes, but you can’t do anything about what happened yesterday. Living with guilt is not going to make anything better. It’s time to drop it. You’ll not only feel a weight lift off of you, but you’ll step into the better things God has in store.
Prayer for Today
Father, thank You for my past, the successes and victories as well as the mistakes and failures. Thank You that the past has prepared me for today and for the better things You have in store for me. I believe breakthroughs are coming, new opportunities are coming, and healings are coming. In Jesus Name, Amen.

In Touch Daily Devotional 3rd March 2021 By Dr Charles Stanley – The Struggle With Jealousy
Topic: The Struggle With Jealousy
Today’s Scripture: 1 Samuel 18:5-16(King James Version)
6 And it came to pass as they came, when David was returned from the slaughter of the Philistine, that the women came out of all cities of Israel, singing and dancing, to meet king Saul, with tabrets, with joy, and with instruments of musick.
7 And the women answered one another as they played, and said, Saul hath slain his thousands, and David his ten thousands.
8 And Saul was very wroth, and the saying displeased him; and he said, They have ascribed unto David ten thousands, and to me they have ascribed but thousands: and what can he have more but the kingdom?
9 And Saul eyed David from that day and forward.
10 And it came to pass on the morrow, that the evil spirit from God came upon Saul, and he prophesied in the midst of the house: and David played with his hand, as at other times: and there was a javelin in Saul’s hand.
11 And Saul cast the javelin; for he said, I will smite David even to the wall with it. And David avoided out of his presence twice.
12 And Saul was afraid of David, because the Lord was with him, and was departed from Saul.
13 Therefore Saul removed him from him, and made him his captain over a thousand; and he went out and came in before the people.
14 And David behaved himself wisely in all his ways; and the Lord was with him.
15 Wherefore when Saul saw that he behaved himself very wisely, he was afraid of him.
16 But all Israel and Judah loved David, because he went out and came in before them.
In Touch Daily Devotional 3rd March 2021 By Dr Charles Stanley
Jealousy is an emotion of displeasure over someone else’s good fortune. Constantly comparing ourselves to others leads to discontent, resentment, and bitterness. If these negative emotions remain unchecked, they can poison our relationships. What’s more, they can eventually flare into suspicion, anger, and hostility.
This is what happened to King Saul. His jealousy caused him to distrust David, who had served him faithfully. Saul’s suspicious attitude led to hostility and irrational behavior—so much so that he hurled a spear at David while the young man was playing music (1 Samuel 18:10-12). Instead of being grateful for David’s loyalty and steadfast service, the king repaid him with animosity and death threats. As a result, David was eventually forced to flee and hide in the wilderness (1 Samuel 23:15-26).
Jealousy is not something to be excused or rationalized. Ask the Lord to examine your heart and show you if any of these symptoms of jealousy are present in your life. If they are, confess them as sin and ask Him to uproot them from your heart. Then focus on God’s faithfulness instead of comparing yourself with others.

Seeds of Destiny Devotional 3 March 2021 – You Must Live
TOPIC: You Must Live (Scroll down for Seeds of Destiny 3 March 2021)
SCRIPTURE: I call heaven and earth to record this day against you, that I have set before you life and death, blessing and cursing: therefore choose life, that both thou and thy seed may live: Deuteronomy 30:19.
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: You have a choice in the matter of your life and destiny.
Seeds of Destiny Devotional 3 March 2021 Message:
Sometime ago, I went to visit a woman who was critically ill at the hospital. Her health condition had deteriorated. At a point, they fixed an oxygen mask on her to breathe.
At this time, four of her children were not yet married, and they were in the hospital with her. I pointed at them one-by-one and told her that she must live to see them get married. She must live to see her children’s children. When I said that, there was an injection of fire into her. The matter was over! Then she said, “I will live. I will take care of my children. I must see my children get married. I must see my children’s children.” Instantly, she was healed, and under twenty-four hours, the oxygen mask was removed from her.
Today, all her children are married.
Beloved, you have a choice in the matter of your life and destiny. You are not at the mercy of the devil; the devil is at your mercy. You shall fulfil your days. You shall fulfil your destiny. You shall fulfil the purpose of God for your life, in Jesus’ Name.
But you must first make the choice to live.
REMEMBER THIS: You have a choice in the matter of your life and destiny.
1. Refuse to bow to the forces of danger and death.
2. Always have something to be alive for.
PRAYER: Lord, I receive the grace to always place the future before me. Help me not to bow to the forces of death and destruction, Lord, in Jesus’ Name.
