Memorise:
Who can find a virtuous woman? For her price is far above rubies.
Proverbs 31:10

Read: Judges 4:4–9

4 And Deborah, a prophetess, the wife of Lapidoth, she judged Israel at that time.
5 And she dwelt under the palm tree of Deborah between Ramah and Bethel in mount Ephraim: and the children of Israel came up to her for judgment.
6 And she sent and called Barak the son of Abinoam out of Kedeshnaphtali, and said unto him, Hath not the LORD God of Israel commanded, saying, Go and draw toward mount Tabor, and take with thee ten thousand men of the children of Naphtali and of the children of Zebulun?
7 And I will draw unto thee to the river Kishon Sisera, the captain of Jabin’s army, with his chariots and his multitude; and I will deliver him into thine hand.
8 And Barak said unto her, If thou wilt go with me, then I will go: but if thou wilt not go with me, then I will not go.
9 And she said, I will surely go with thee: notwithstanding the journey that thou takest shall not be for thine honour; for the LORD shall sell Sisera into the hand of a woman. And Deborah arose, and went with Barak to Kedesh.

Message

Deborah was a patriotic woman. She was a prophetess, who used the anointing of God on her life to judge and instruct Israel in the way of righteousness. Are you a virtuous woman? In what way is your life affecting your community? The name Deborah means ‘bee’. She lived up to her name by her industry, sagacity and great usefulness to the society, her sweetness to her friends and her sharpness against her enemies. How far does your name influence you? What influence does the name of Christ have upon you? Have you been able to influence others to Christ? Deborah was said to be the wife of Lapidoth. ‘Lapidoth’ means ‘lamp’. As one associated with light, Deborah was a blessing to her community. Are you a blessing or a curse to your family, friends, acquaintances, neighbours, community, state or nation? Deborah was intimately acquainted with God. She was a judge and a prophetess. How close are you to the Almighty? From the life of Deborah, we learn that God depends on man to carry out His rescue operations and programmes. However, no man should see himself as indispensable. God can use anyone. Any man or woman who purges himself or herself can be used as a vessel unto honour by the Master. 2

2-Timothy_2-19: Nevertheless the foundation of God standeth sure, having this seal, The Lord knoweth them that are his. And, Let every one that nameth the name of Christ depart from iniquity

2-Timothy_2-19: Nevertheless the foundation of God standeth sure, having this seal, The Lord knoweth them that are his. And, Let every one that nameth the name of Christ depart from iniquity

Timothy 2:21 says:
“If a man therefore purge himself from these, he shall be a vessel unto honour, sanctified, and meet for the master’s use, and prepared unto every good work.”
Don’t be too big for God. He has alternatives. As a prophetess and a judge, Deborah’s head was perpetually greased by the oil of the anointing. To excel in God’s service, you need the anointing. It is the anointing that destroys the yoke. Deborah was picked from among the rebellious multitude in Israel. God still has His own vessels. He uses whoever yields himself or herself to Him. Deborah did not allow her gender and other issues of time and life to block her focus or stifle her consecration. She was entirely devoted to the service of God in Israel. There is no person without challenges. However, God expects diligence and total consecration in whatever is committed to your hands. Deborah was a good leader. She gave her followers the assurance of victory and did not fail. She raised their hope, and she delivered. Are you a morale-booster or a discourager? She helped the faith of her subordinates to grow strong. She was also submissive to her husband. How submissive are you?

Key Point:
God is no respecter of persons. What He needs from you is holy living. Live a life of holiness and you will be used of God.
May God Bless Nigeria, America And Israel And Take Care Of Us; May God Make His Face Shine Upon Us, And Be Gracious To Us; May The Lord Lift Up His Countenance Upon Us, And Give Us Peace, In Jesus Christ Name, We Pray! Amen!

May The Grace The Lord Jesus Christ, And The Love Of God, And The Fellowship Of The Holy Spirit Be With You All. Amen!

Divine Promotion For The Wise. RCCG. Redeemed Christian Church Of God. RCCG Open Heaven. Sermon And Prayer Points By Pastor E A Adeboye. Daddy G O.

Memorise:
The wise shall inherit glory: but shame shall be the promotion of fools.
Proverbs 3:35

Read: Psalm 75:5-7

5 Lift not up your horn on high: speak not with a stiff neck.
6 For promotion cometh neither from the east, nor from the west, nor from the south.
7 But God is the judge: he putteth down one, and setteth up another.

Proverbs_9-10-2: The fear of the LORD is the beginning of wisdom: and the knowledge of the holy is understanding

Proverbs_9-10-2: The fear of the LORD is the beginning of wisdom: and the knowledge of the holy is understanding

Message

Divine promotion is a reward for those who live holy. God is the Judge, and only He can promote you. The devil is not the one who will promote you. There are two types of promotion according to Proverbs 3:35. These are: GLORY and SHAME. There is glorious promotion for the wise and shameful promotion for fools. Who are the wise? The Bible says that the fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom (Proverbs 1:7). Those who are wise fear God, and because of this, they live a holy life. They depart from sin. God says that such people will have a glorious promotion. A classical example of a wise man, who as a result of his fear of God abstained from sin, is Joseph in Egypt. He refused to have carnal knowledge of his master’s wife, though it was offered to him ‘free of charge’. In Genesis 39:9, He queried this offer saying:
“……how then can I do this great wickedness, and sin against God?”
The end of the story is that Joseph became the Prime Minister of Egypt. Who are fools? Fools are those who can see danger ahead and still walk into it.

Romans_6-23: For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord

Romans_6-23: For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord

Fools are those who know that the wages of sin is death and yet continue to sin. Fools are those who know that the only way to get to the kingdom of God is by becoming born-again and yet they refuse salvation. Fools are those who have decided to continue living in sin, after knowing that without holiness, no man shall see God.

You must live a holy life if you want glorious promotion. God is no respecter of persons. He will never bend His standards. Promotion puts you on top. Being on top comes with very many advantages, according to Deuteronomy 28:1:
“And it shall come to pass, if thou shalt hearken diligently unto the voice of the Lord thy God, to observe and to do all his commandments which I command thee this day, that the Lord thy God will set thee on high above all the nations of the earth.”
God will give you divine promotion if you live holy. However, if you do not live holy, you will go down. Those who are on top enjoy it up there. Those who are below remain in suffering. I prefer being on top. When you are on top, you will get special protection. The one who is on top is special and of more value than the one who is below.

Ephesians_6-10-1: Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord, and in the power of his might.  11 Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil

Ephesians_6-10-1: Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord, and in the power of his might. 11 Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil

Can you see how wise it is to live holy? I pray that today, the Lord will give you the grace you need to live holy for divine promotion, in Jesus’ Name. All you need to do is to make up your mind that you will no longer live a life of sin anymore, and the Lord will help your decision.

Prayer Point:
Father, put Your fear in me so that I may shun evil for holy living, and grant me divine promotion this season in Jesus’ Name, Amen!

May God Bless Nigeria, America And Israel And Take Care Of Us; May God Make His Face Shine Upon Us, And Be Gracious To Us; May The Lord Lift Up His Countenance Upon Us, And Give Us Peace, In Jesus Christ Name, We Pray! Amen!

May The Grace The Lord Jesus Christ, And The Love Of God, And The Fellowship Of The Holy Spirit Be With You All. Amen!

How do you know if you are in a good relationship?

2-Corinthians_5-17-1: Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new

1 Corinthians 15:33, “Do not be deceived: Evil company corrupts good habits.”

Show me your friends and I will show you your future! The people you are associating with are the same people you are giving permission to influence and navigate your destiny. The casualties are endless. From the businessperson who selected the wrong partner and went bankrupt, to the troubled, soon to be in divorce court newlywed, who asked their thrice-divorced friend for marriage advice. Who doesn’t know teenagers who started running with the party crowd and found themselves imprisoned by addiction? The proof is undeniable.

John_15-13-1: Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends

Shady relationships always suffocate wise decisions.

However, the opposite is also true. Befriending honest people, dating people who are chasing God or marrying someone with character and integrity will always bring lifelong benefits. A fulfilled marriage, a God honoring dating life, a successful career or friendships that heal (instead of hurt) are as simple as who you choose to let in the door of your life. Although a mob of different characters will ring your doorbell only you can decide who is allowed to come in.

Proverbs_13-20: He that walketh with wise men shall be wise: but a companion of fools shall be destroyed

Proverbs_13-20: He that walketh with wise men shall be wise: but a companion of fools shall be destroyed

TWO KINDS OF RELATIONSHIPS
Once you sort through the currency of relationships there are only two kinds:
COUNTERFEIT
And AUTHENTIC.
One crowd loves things and uses people
and the other loves people and uses things. One group tempts, flatters and tantalizes. They whisper compromise. They encourage immediate gratification. They deceive.
The other crowd encourages and edifies. They promote integrity. They seek what’s best for you instead of their self. They pray.

1-Corinthians_15-58: Therefore, my beloved brethren, be ye stedfast, unmoveable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, forasmuch as ye know that your labour is not in vain in the Lord

1-Corinthians_15-58: Therefore, my beloved brethren, be ye stedfast, unmoveable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, forasmuch as ye know that your labour is not in vain in the Lord

Wrong relationships pursue life like no one is watching, while the right ones are living like God sees everything, because they know He does!

Are the people in your inner circle honest, faithful, worthy of trust, seeking to follow Christ? Are you becoming a better person and more dedicated believer through their influence? Do they cultivate your strength? If they are not, its time to reconsider the relationship.

Ephesians_4-29: Let no corrupt communication proceed out of your mouth, but that which is good to the use of edifying, that it may minister grace unto the hearers

Ephesians_4-29: Let no corrupt communication proceed out of your mouth, but that which is good to the use of edifying, that it may minister grace unto the hearers

The verse in 1 Corinthians warns against being tricked or deceived. This alarm bell must be sounding because people have tendencies toward the belief that wrong relationships will not influence their good habits. I used to tell my mother not to worry about my troubled friends because my positive influence would change them instead of them changing me. I couldn’t have been more wrong! I was not only swayed by their habits but they swept me under.

Ask God to bring people into your life that will help you and that you can help to become stronger and more Christ like.

Your relationships are pictures of your future.
May God Bless Nigeria, America And Israel And Take Care Of Us; May God Make His Face Shine Upon Us, And Be Gracious To Us; May The Lord Lift Up His Countenance Upon Us, And Give Us Peace, In Jesus Christ Name, We Pray! Amen!

May The Grace The Lord Jesus Christ, And The Love Of God, And The Fellowship Of The Holy Spirit Be With You All. Amen!
