You are God’s peculiar treasure, please know your worth in

“I hate myself”.
“There is nothing good in me.”
Have you ever met folks who talk this way?
Such people sometime wouldn’t even look at themselves in the mirror anymore.  It’s a pity that many people don’t know their
worth. It’s your responsibility to know what you’re worth; to discover the
treasure God has placed in you, and use it to beautify your life.

The Bible says, “For
we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus unto good works, which God hath
before ordained that we should walk in them”
(Ephesians 2:10). So you see,
you’re God’s best and He wants you to discover the treasures He has deposited
in you. He gave you the necessary material which is the Word so you can live in

It’s your responsibility to discover your worth by studying
the Bible. If you could only look inward and use the Bible to build yourself
up, you’ll always value yourself. The Word – the Bible is your mirror: “But we all, with open face beholding as in
a glass the glory of the Lord, are changed into the same image from glory to
glory, even as by the Spirit of the Lord”
(2 Corinthians 3:18).

As you discover your worth, you’ll also discover God’s
purpose for your life. You’re valuable to Him that’s why He placed you on earth
to affect the lives of many in this world. You have to acknowledge what He has
deposited in you and walk in the light of it.


I know who I am. I am
conscious of the life of Christ in me and I know I can do all things, through
Christ that strengthens me. I am His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus unto
good works and God’s eternal glory, Amen!

God Takes Pleasure In The Prosperity Of His Children.

God takes pleasure in the prosperity of His children. The fact
is, He longs to see His children live every day in prosperity. Once you can
find your place in God, you’ll prosper as God has ordained: “The blessing of the Lord, it maketh rich,
and He addeth no sorrow with it”
(Proverbs 10:22). Any of His children who
is not prospering in His Word hasn’t found his place yet.

God will never withhold any good thing from us (Psalm
84:11). As a fact, He loves to give to us more abundantly above all that we can
ever think or imagine (Ephesians 3:20). He can give you whatever you desire
beyond what your mind could ever fathom. All you need do is to believe and
trust Him; you shouldn’t limit Him in anyway.

God created the galaxy, the sun, the moon, and the starry
heavens. The earth is just a minute part of everything God created. The best of
all His creation is you; you are His masterpiece, the crown of His creation
(Ephesians 2:10). The sun was created big, the earth was created spherical and
big, but you were created with the greatest precision, even to the most
minuscule detail. For example, you were created with fingerprints that are
unique to you alone. You were beautifully and wonderfully created to produce results
(Psalm 139:14). The whole creation isn’t complete without you for every other
thing was created for you.

This is why I love to celebrate God. When you learn to
celebrate Him without reservations and in spite of your situation, His power
will be released upon your life. That power makes you a productive and fruitful
person. Remember, you’re the fruit-bearing part of the vine.


Dear Father, I thank
You for giving me Your Spirit to remind me constantly of Your unending love for
me. Let this love be evident in my life and continually flow from my lips so
all will know that You take pleasure in them as You do in me, in Jesus Christ
Name, Amen!

Dear Heavenly Father! I come to You in the Name of Jesus
Christ Your only begotten Son. Your Word says, “…..whosoever shall call on the Name of the Lord shall be saved” (Acts

I ask Jesus Christ to come into my heart to be the Lord of
my life. I receive eternal life into my spirit and according to Romans 10:9, “That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth
the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised Him from
the dead, thou shalt be saved,”
I am saved; I am born-again; I am a child
of God! I now have Christ dwelling in me, and greater is He that is in me than
he that is in the world! (1 John 4:4). I now walk in the consciousness of my
new life in Christ Jesus. Hallelujah!

If you have just said this prayer with me CONGRATULATIONS! You are now a child
of God.

You are now seated above all principality and power and
might and dominion, and every name that is named (failure, poverty, sickness, infirmities,
limitations, lack, diseases, fear)not only in this age but also in that which
is to come with Christ Jesus Our personal Lord and Saviour.  Amen! (Ephesians 1:15-23)

Receive power to succeed in every area of your life. Study your
Bible diligently and meditate in it day and night (Joshua 1:8).

And lastly, don’t forget the fellowship of the Saints; prayerfully
find and belong to a Bible – faith believing Church and watch God fulfil all
His Word concerning You!


God Embraces Our Imperfections,That’s Why Jesus Came And Died For Us

A breakfast.

God understands our imperfection, that’s why He sent His only
begotten son Jesus Christ, to redeem us from every condemnation (Romans 8:1; 3)

The popular little
story below illustrates it all:

“When I was a little boy, my mom liked to make breakfast
food for dinner every now and then. And I remember one night in particular when
she had made breakfast after a long, hard day at work. On that evening so long
ago, my mom placed a plate of eggs, sausage, and extremely burned toast in
front of my dad. I remember waiting to see if anyone noticed! Yet all my dad
did was to reach for his toast, smile at my mom, and asked me how my day was at
school. I don’t remember what I told him that night, but I do remember watching
him smear butter and jelly on that toast and eat every bite! When I got up from
the table that evening, I remember hearing my mom apologize to my dad for
burning the toast. And I’ll never forget what he said. “Baby, I love burned toast.”

Later that night, I went to kiss Daddy good night, and I
asked him if he really liked his toast burned. He wrapped me in his arms and said, “Little Buddy, your Momma put in a hard day at work today and she’s
real tired. And besides a little burnt toast never hurt anyone! You know, life
is full of imperfect things…..and imperfect people. I’m not the best
housekeeper or cook.”

What I’ve learnt over the years is that learning to accept
each other’s shortcoming – and choosing to celebrate each other’s differences –
is the one of the most important keys to creating a healthy, growing, and
lasting relationship. And that’s my prayer for you today – that you will learn
to take the good, the bad and the ugly part of your life and lay them at the
feet of GOD. Because in the end, He’s the only One who will be able to give you
a relationship where burnt toast isn’t a deal – breaker! We could extend this
to any relationship in fact – as understanding is the base of any relationship,
be it a husband – wife or parent – child or friendship!

Don’t put the key to your happiness in someone else’s pocket
– but into your own.

See through God’s eyes and feel through God’s heart, and you
will appreciate the value of every soul including yourself.

People will always forget what you do, and they will always
forget what you say, but they will never, ever forget the way you make them

God Is More Willing To Give To You, Than You’re Willing To Receive

And it came to pass,
when He was in a certain city, behold a man full of leprosy: who seeing Jesus
fell on his face, and besought Him, saying, LORD, if thou wilt, thou canst make
me clean (Luke 5:12)

There’re lots of people today whose mindset is like that of
the leper in the scripture above. They know God has the power to do anything
for them but they’re not sure He’s willing to grant them the miracle they
greatly desire. “I don’t know if it’s
God’s will to heal me,”
they’ll say, and then run to the doctor for help!

Notice that the leper didn’t question the power of God. He
knew God had the power to heal him. He had heard about Jesus the Healer, so he
wasn’t questioning His power to heal him of his leprosy. His only problem was
he didn’t know if Jesus would be willing to. In other words, he knew Jesus
could, but didn’t know if He would.

It often amazes me how people are quick to say they don’t
know God’s will while at the same time they demonstrate a desire for good
things. Philippians 2:13 says, “For it is
God which worketh in you both to will and to do of His good pleasure.”
other words, that desire in you for good things is a reflection of God’s desire
and His will for you to have a good life. There’s no good father who wants his
children to go through life suffering. If you’re a good parent, you won’t plan
for your children to become victim in life; you’d work hard so they won’t have
to suffer.

You couldn’t be better than God in taking care of your
family. God is more willing to provide for you than you could ever be willing
to receive provision. He desires to bless you and give you good things more
than you’re ready to receive them. That’s why Jesus said you don’t need to make
vain repetitions when you pray (Matthew 6:7).

God loves you, and He’s more passionate and concerned about
your success and prosperity in life than you could ever be. He’s more willing
to give to you than you’re willing to receive.


Dear Father, thank you
for making your love known to me and enlightening the eyes of my understanding
to know that You’re willing to give me all things. I rejoice in the knowledge
of Your Word today, and declare that success, prosperity, victory and health
are mine in the Name of Jesus Christ, Amen!

Be Encouraged, God Is With You

Have not I commanded
thee? Be strong and of a good courage; be not afraid, neither be thou dismayed:
for the LORD thy God is with thee whithersoever thou goest (Joshua 1:9)

The story is often told of a man who went on a journey with
God. Though he couldn’t see God physically, he could see God’s footprints in
the sand as they walked together. So each time he saw that extra pair of
footprints, he knew the Lord was with him.

On the way, things got harder and harder, and he experienced
turbulent moments as they journeyed, “I’m
supposed to be on this journey with God, how come things have gotten so rough
and tough?”
he queried. So, he looked to check if God was still there, and
saw only one set of footprints and cried out: “Lord, where are you? How come you left me at the most difficult part
of the journey?”

“I never left you” the
Lord replied, “I’ve been with you every step of the way.”

“No, you haven’t” the
man cried. “I’d been seeing two pairs of
footprints all along, and now there’s only one left in the sand.”
gently, the Lord replied him, “The
footprints you saw weren’t yours but mine. I had to carry you when the journey
became too tough and rough!”

How loving and caring our Lord is! Even when we don’t
realize it, He’s there with us. At the most difficult part of the journey, when
we think we’re all alone, He’s still there with us; not to partake of trouble
with us, or suffer along with us, but to bring us out victoriously. In Hebrew
13:5-6. He says “……I will never leave
thee, nor forsake thee so that we may boldly say, ‘The Lord is my Helper, and I
will not fear what man shall do unto me.”

The Lord commanded Joshua in our opening scripture to be
strong and courageous. That’s because He knew the time would come when certain
things that could instigate fear and cause discouragement would happen. But He
reassured Him by saying, “……..the Lord
thy God is with thee whithersoever thou goest.”
The Lord is saying the same
to you today. “Be strong and courageous!”

Men may have given up on you because of your decision to
serve the Lord with your life, or you might even be facing tough times at home,
in the office, or in school. Be encouraged! The Lord is with you: “when thou passest through the waters, I will
be with thee; and through the rivers, they shall not overflow thee: when thou
walkest through the fire, thou shalt not be burned; neither shall the flame
kindle upon thee. For I am the Lord thy God, the Holy One of Israel, thy
Saviour: I gave Egypt for thy ransom, Ethiopia and Seba for thee. Since thou
wast precious in my sight, thou hast been honourable, and I have loved thee:
therefore will I give men for thee, and people for thy life. Fear not: for I am
with thee…..” (
Isaiah 43:2-5).


I refuse to be
disheartened by any situation. Rather, I rejoice because I know the Lord is
with me, and He’ll always make me victorious, for He’s my Strength, my Guide
and my Deliverer. Amen!

Submit to God’s leadership and God’s authority

Stained glass at St John the Baptist's Anglica...

You’re the product of the information to which you expose
yourself. You’re the result of the leadership to which you submit yourself.
There are different forms of leadership in the world, but there’s only one
which is of God; that’s the leadership of the Word of God.

Some people listen and hearken to all sort of information,
refusing to be guided by God’s Word. Most of such people are ruled by their
senses and therefore estranged from God. The Bible says, “They which are the children of the flesh, these are not the children
of God…”
(Romans 9:8). Whenever you open yourself to unrestricted
information, you’re bound to yield to all kinds of worldly advice, which are
void of the revelation of God’s Word.

You must make up your mind that God’s Word would be the only
compass that guides the course of your life, and not what someone who doesn’t
even have the Holy Spirit says.

You can’t live the rest of your life on the opinions of men
and women that have nothing but human experiences to share with you. Don’t
build your home on fickle counsel that’s constantly changing with the senses
and times. Rather, build your life on the proven and tested Word of God that’ll
never change. This is the reason you must let His Word abide in you richly.


Dear Heavenly Father,
I recognize that Your Word is not of men, but the divine light. I yield my
whole being to its leadership or rulership today and by it I find my way
through life.  I declare that the Word of
God is my light and life, in Jesus Christ Name. Amen!


We Walk By Faith Not By Sight: Miracle

Jesus is considered by scholars such as Weber ...

Image via Wikipedia


God told Abraham to get up and look beyond the horizon,
because he was going to receive as far as his eyes could see. The man who was
healed of blindness at Bethsaida made a very striking statement before his
sight was completely restored. He said he saw men as trees, walking (Mark

What you see is dependent on how you see what you see. You
could say, “My money is reducing fast,” or “I still have some money.” You could
also say, “My brother is sick” or “My brother is recovering”.

Jesus instructed the blind man to look up, and placed His
hands on his eyes again and he was restored, totally healed. You might be
praying earnestly for something without getting results. It’s time to look up
and say, “I will lift up my eyes to the
hills, from whence cometh my help. My help cometh from the LORD, which made
heaven and earth”
(Psalm 121:1-2).

If you believe your help comes from heaven, begin to see it,
say it, and act it. Stop celebrating the problem. That will only serve to
magnify it. Rather, say, “it is settled. I am walking by faith and not by
sight”. When you look above the problem, you activate faith in God. In that
atmosphere of faith, you’ll get a miracle. Speak what He says, and not what you
see. Then He will be in charge, and He will perform it.


I do not look at
visible things that are temporal, but I keep my eyes on Jesus, the Author and
Perfecter of my faith. I walk by faith and not by sight.

The Lord Is My Shepherd. I Shall Not Want.

God’s divine power
has already given unto us all things that pertain to life and godliness. Note
that this scripture (2 Peter 1:2-3) is in the present perfect tense; therefore
it’s not a promise. This means that God has already done it; His divine power
has already given us all things that we need to live the good and prosperous
life. Praise God, all my needs are met and I have no reason to lack anything in
life! No wonder the Psalmist said, “The
Lord is my Shepherd, I shall not want”
(Psalm 23:1).

You must copy or imitate his mentality. You shouldn’t lack
for the Lord is now your Shepherd. He makes you lie down in green pastures, He
leads you beside the still waters, and He restores your soul (Psalm 23:3).

Refuse to lack anything. Reject the lack mentality. How do
you do this? It is by being supply – conscious! Don’t be afraid of your supply
drying up. Rather, look to your ever-loving Shepherd who supplies your every
need according to His riches in glory. Two men were asked the level of fuel in
the tank. One answered, “It is half-empty”. The other looked and happily
declared, “It is half-full”. Definitely, the first man was lack-conscious while
the second was supply-conscious. Learn to be supply – conscious.

Know this, you’re a child of God, therefore your life is in
the Shepherd’s hands. This is why you can say like the Psalmist, “The Lord is
my Shepherd, I shall not want for money, shelter  or food; I shall not want for any good thing
in this life.” Glory to God! Amen!


Young lions may go
hungry or even starve, but I trust the Lord, therefore I will never lack
anything good. The Lord supplies all my needs according to His abundant riches
in glory by Christ Jesus, Amen!

Once God Anoints You With The Holy Spirit Nothing Can Stop You

Once God anoints you with the Holy Spirit nothing can stop
you anymore. The anointing maybe unseen and unheard, nevertheless you can see
what the anointing does.

The anointing is the power of the Holy Spirit that rests on
a man. It brings the glory of God upon your life and gives you direction in
life. When that anointing rests on you. It’ll change you from an ordinary man
to a supernatural being: “And it shall
come to pass in that day, that his burden shall be taken away from off thy
shoulder, and his yoke from off thy neck, and the yoke shall be destroyed
because of the anointing”
(Isaiah 10:27).

The anointing imparts authority to your words and brings
grace into your life causing you to walk in divine favour. Things just fall
into place for you; failure, poverty and defeat become separated from you. This
is why the Bible says, “….all things work
together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according
to His purpose”
(Romans 8:28).

When you receive that anointing upon your life, no weapon
fashioned against you shall prosper. If you would receive the anointing of God
into your life, you’ll only see progress. The Bible says, “But the path of the just is as the shining light, that shineth more
and more unto the perfect day”
(Proverbs 4:18). There are no ups and down
for the man that walks in the anointing of the Holy Spirit. You don’t have
failure today, success tomorrow and then failure. Rather, you success shines
brighter and brighter to the perfect day; you just keep moving forward, making
progress unto perfection.

These are the kind of things the anointing of the Holy
Spirit will do for you.


Dear Father, my heart
is open to see the revelations of Your Word. Let Your Spirit reveal the many
hidden treasures and benefit residing in me by virtue of Your anointing upon my
life, in Jesus Christ Name, Amen!
