What A Great Day I Live In Because Of What Jesus Has Done For Us. The Spirit Of God Lives In Me

What A Great Day I Live In Because Of What Jesus Has Done For Us. The Spirit Of God Lives In Me

That he would grant you, according to the riches of his glory to be strengthened with might by his Spirit in the inner man.
Ephesians 3:16

We are infused with inner strength by the Spirit of God. As we invite God to fill us and strengthen us, something begins to happen in our spirit. There is a new enthusiasm about life and the will of God for our lives. As we recognize and yield to the Holy Spirit, God is able to do exceeding abundantly above all we can ask or think. We have “joy unspeakable and full of glory” (I Peter 1:8).

What a great day we live in because of what Jesus has done for us. We are redeemed because of His death, burial, resurrection, and the power of His blood.

What a powerful revelation given by the Holy Spirit. You are in Christ, Christ is in God, and Christ is in you! The Spirit of God lives in us.

Confession:
That He would grant me, according to the riches of His glory to be strengthened with might by His Spirit in my inner man! Amen! Ephesians 3:16

Every Word God Has Spoken Concerning My Life Shall Come To Pass, Amen

Every Word God Has Spoken Concerning My Life Shall Come To Pass, Amen

“Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life [. . .].”

Psalm 23:6 (KJV)

You know after God created all things in Genesis, He said this is good. But after making man in His own image and likeness, He said this is very good. The goodness of God will overshadow you everywhere you go. The goodness of God will pursue you. It will not only pursue you, it will catch up with you and overtake you.

Every word God has spoken concerning your life will come to pass. The word that God has spoken concerning you has already overruled the power of darkness. So if the devil speaks, it is too late. Whatever the devil has spoken is too late because the word of God has gone ahead of you. And it shall come to pass in your life.

The devil will not cut you short. Plane crash will not kill you. Armed robbers will not kill you. Assassins will not kill you. Charms and enchantments will not kill you. Diseases will not kill you. You will fulfil the days of your life. Your life will preach the gospel. Whatever you lay your hands upon shall succeed. Your life shall remain a testimony. Everywhere you go, your light will shine. The light that is coming from you will overshadow all darkness.

As this year draws to a close, it will not end without your testimony. If in the last 11 months nothing has happened, don’t give up, don’t lose hope, there is still so much time left in the year for God to give you that miracle. In every area of your life, the Lord will satisfy you with His goodness. This year will be your greatest year yet. The devil will not have the final word in your life. God has not brought you this far to disappoint you. If no one testifies, you will testify. It is too late for the devil. You are about to break out, break forth, breakthrough and break in. Hallelujah! Amen!

The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want.

2 He maketh me to lie down in green pastures: he leadeth me beside the still waters.

3 He restoreth my soul: he leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for his name’s sake.

4 Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me.

5 Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies: thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over.

6 Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life: and I will dwell in the house of the Lord for ever.
Psalm 23:1-6

Salvation Prayers

If you don’t Know Jesus as your personal Lord and Saviour and would like to accept him into your life as your personal Lord and Saviour, Please say this prayer:

I invite Jesus to become the Lord of my life, to rule and reign in my heart from this day forward. Please send Your Holy Spirit to help me obey You, and to do Your Will for the rest of my life.

Joy Overflow. What My Enemies Meant For Evil, God Is Turning Them Around For My Good

Psalms_98-4: Make a joyful noise unto the LORD, all the earth: make a loud noise, and rejoice, and sing praise. Thank You Jesus

Psalms_98-4: Make a joyful noise unto the LORD, all the earth: make a loud noise, and rejoice, and sing praise .Thank You Jesus

Joy Overflow. What My Enemies Meant For Evil, God Is Turning Them Around For My Good

Therefore with joy shall ye draw water out of the wells of salvation.

Isaiah 12:3

You can make a withdrawal from your salvation account with joy. The wells of salvation are reservoirs of healing and blessing. Joy is your bucket to draw out your blessing. If you have great joy, you have a great bucket to draw much salvation.

James 1:2 says, “My brethren, count it all joy when you fall into divers temptations.” He did not say that it was a joy to have multiple troubles. He said to count it joy. Look at your problems and count. One joy…two joy…three joy…then laugh at the devil! What Satan meant for evil, God is turning around for your good. God paid too high a price for your victory for you to be defeated. Ha! Ha! Ha!

One translation of James 1:2 says to count it “Maximum Joy.” I like that! Smile, laugh, jump, shout, then dance turn it up and things will turn around!

Confession:

God brought me here to have a good time now I am going to have a good time! Hallelujah!

Romans_8-28: And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose

God Knows My Name. He Even Knows The Number Of Hairs On My Head

God Knows My Name. He Even Knows The Number Of Hairs On My Head

Matthew 10:30
But the very hairs of your head are all numbered.

Every day, your hair drops. Yet, God knows how many hairs are left on your head. And He also knows how many are growing back! He knows because He bothers to count them again. When it comes to you, He always has time for every little thing about you.

So when Jesus said, “But the very hairs of your head are all numbered,” He was not exaggerating. He never exaggerates. He means what He says and He says what He means. So for the Lord to say that the very hairs of your head are all numbered means that He wants you to know that He is very interested in you and has intimate knowledge about you—your body, family, finances, relationships…everything in your life!

He knows the pain you have been having in your body. He is aware of the financial worry which you have been keeping from your family. He sees how your nasty boss is treating you. He understands the hurts you have been keeping in your heart. He hears your heart’s cry for a miracle baby.

Your Heavenly Father wants you to know that as long as something concerns you, He does not overlook it.

God knows you intimately. He knows every small problem you are worried about and every single burden you have. And when you approach Him for help, He has all the time for you as if no one else exists. That is how valuable you are to Him and how absorbed He is in you! Thank You Jesus.

Matthew_10-30: But the very hairs of your head are all numbered.

It Is Awesome For God To Send His Son Jesus Christ To Die In My Place

It Is Awesome For God To Send His Son Jesus Christ To Die In My Place

12 Wherefore, my beloved, as ye have always obeyed, not as in my presence only, but now much more in my absence, work out your own salvation with fear and trembling.

13 For it is God which worketh in you both to will and to do of his good pleasure.

Philippians 2:12-13

Salvation is a wonderful gift of God to mankind, it is awesome for God to send His son to die in our place and thereby redeem us from sin and satan and reconcile us to Himself. It is a free gift from God and once we confess our sins, ask for forgiveness and confess Jesus Christ as Lord and Saviour, we are saved, it’s straightforward.
Nevertheless, many Christians struggle in their walk with God, as they feel once they get saved things just begin to work out, they feel they ought to become holy and immune to temptation automatically. Our text today makes it clear that, there is work to be done on our own part, it is like the case of a student who wants a university degree and has been given a free entry and scholarship into the university, the student still has to study, he can’t just assume he will graduate automatically without any effort on his own part, he has to attend lectures, study hard, write exams and pass.
So our walk with God requires ‘work’, we have to cultivate, carry out the goal, and fully complete our salvation; we need to work it for it to work for us. We need to know that it is a walk of Faith, (2 Corinthians 5:7), and not of fear that comes from sight walking, when we pray, we should believe that God will answer and ‘act’ accordingly.
We also ought to walk with self-distrust, with serious caution, tenderness of conscience, watchfulness against temptation, timidly shrinking from whatever might offend God and discredit the name of Christ.
Most important of all , we must know that we cannot do it by our power, and that it is God Who is all the while effectually at work in us [energizing and creating in us the power and desire], both to will and to work for His good pleasure and satisfaction and delight.
It becomes easier when we have more of God in our lives and less of ‘us’ in us.

Confession

I will not be lazy with regards of my salvation, I have the grace and strength to continuously work it out. Hallelujah!

Are You Industrious? Sermon And Prayer Points By Pastor E A Adeboye

Are You Industrious? Sermon And Prayer Points By Pastor E A Adeboye

Memorise:
Love Not Sleep, Lest Thou Come To Poverty; Open Thine Eyes, And Thou Shalt Be Satisfied With Bread.
Proverb 20:13

Read: Proverbs 31:10-13
10 Who Can Find A Virtuous Woman? For Her Price Is Far Above Rubies.
11 The Heart Of Her Husband Doth Safely Trust In Her, So That He Shall Have No Need Of Spoil.
12 She Will Do Him Good And Not Evil All The Days Of Her Life.
13 She Seeketh Wool, And Flax, And Worketh Willingly With Her Hands.

Message
In The School Of Life, Those Who Are Prone To Giving Excuses End Up As Failures. Greatness In Life Is Not For The Slothful But For The Diligent. It Is Not For Men Of Theoretical Faith, But For Those Who Can Put Their Faith Into Action. There Are Many People Walking Around Blind To Opportunities. They Always Complain About The Economic Situation Of Their Country, And For This Reason, They Have Refused To Take Their Destinies In Their Own Hands. Nothing Moves Until You Move. There Are Opportunities All Around You, But If You Can’t See Them, They Will Not Translate Into Tangible Results. To Be Industrious Is To Be Hardworking, Conscientious, Diligent And Productive. John 15:16 Says:

“Ye Have Not Chosen Me, But I Have Chosen You, And Ordained You, That Ye Should Go And Bring Forth Fruit, And That Your Fruit Should Remain: That Whatsoever Ye Shall Ask Of The Father In My Name, He May Give It You.”
God Expects His Children To Be Productive And Be Creative In Their Thinking. The Fact That You Belong To God Should Make You See Solutions To Issues Where Others Only See Problems. The Spiritual Controls The Physical; This Is Why You Need To Ask God To Open Your Spiritual Eyes. You Need To See The Good Things Coming Your Way From Afar Off, So That As They Come, You Can Tap Into Them. There Are Many People Sitting And Living Around Opportunities Without Exploring Them. There Is No Future For Lazy Fellows.

The Life God Expects From The Industrious Is A Life Of Fruitfulness In Every Area. Fruitfulness Is A Covenant Benefit Of God’s Children. If You Are Still In School, You Need To Be Industrious In Order To Graduate With Excellent Grades. If You Are Serving In God’s Ministry, You Need To Be Industrious, So That You Can Access The Anointing Required For Doing Spiritual Exploits. If You Are Engaged In Business, You Need To Be Hard-Working To Make More Profits And Access Greater Business Opportunities. If You Are In The Corporate World, Being Industrious Will Put You On The Cutting Edge Of Your Career. You Need To Keep Growing. You Need To Develop Yourself For The Glorious Future You See Ahead Of You. You Must Not Be Distracted With Those Things That Will Not Enhance The Quick Actualisation Of Your God-Given Dreams. There Is No Need Losing Your Head Over What You Don’t Have. What You Have Is More Than Enough For Your Breakthrough. Never Be Afraid Of Starting Small. Ask The Lord To Open Your Eyes So That You Can Multiply The Seed In Your Hands To Become A Forest.

Key Point:
Whatever You Don’t Value Can Never Add Value To You.

Attracting Greater Love Of God. Sermon And Prayer Points By Pastor E A Adeboye

Attracting Greater Love Of God. Sermon And Prayer Points By Pastor E A Adeboye

Memorise:
For It Became Him, For Whom Are All Things, And By Whom Are All Things, In Bringing Many Sons Unto Glory, To Make The Captain Of Their Salvation Perfect Through Sufferings.
Hebrews 2:10

Read: Genesis 22:15-18
15 And The Angel Of The Lord Called Unto Abraham Out Of Heaven The Second Time,
16 And Said, By Myself Have I Sworn, Saith The Lord, For Because Thou Hast Done This Thing, And Hast Not Withheld Thy Son, Thine Only Son:
17 That In Blessing I Will Bless Thee, And In Multiplying I Will Multiply Thy Seed As The Stars Of The Heaven, And As The Sand Which Is Upon The Sea Shore; And Thy Seed Shall Possess The Gate Of His Enemies;
18 And In Thy Seed Shall All The Nations Of The Earth Be Blessed; Because Thou Hast Obeyed My Voice.

Message
Your Love For God Is Something You Must Prove To Be Genuine. God Is Not Satisfied With Verbal Affirmations Only. He Is Not Satisfied With Promises To Love Surrounded By Procrastination. He Wants To See Your Love For Real; Hence, 1 John 3:18 Says:
“My Little Children, Let Us Not Love In Word, Neither In Tongue; But In Deed And In Truth.”
Have You Been Able To Prove Your Love For God Beyond Words? One Beautiful Truth Here Is That Whenever You Demonstrate Your Love For God, It Will Attract Greater Love From Him. This Principle Can Also Be Seen In The Natural World.
If I Smile At You, Unless You Are Angry With Me, You Will Return The Smile. Every Time You Prove To God That You Love Him, He Will Reciprocate By Showing You Greater Love. In Acts 20:35, Apostle Paul Echoed The Words Of Our Lord Jesus Christ That It Is Better To Give Than To Receive. Many People Find It Hard To Understand This. Simply Put, It Is Better To Give Because When You Give, You Automatically Open The Door To Receive More Than What You Gave.

The Act Of Giving Is Subject To The Law Of Harvest; Therefore, Everyone Who Gives Receives Something Much More Than What Was Given, Because The Harvest Is Usually Greater Than The Seed Sown. Hebrews 2:9-10 Tells Us That When God Gave His Only Begotten Son, He Brought Many More Sons Into Glory. God Gave One Son And Now Has Millions Of Sons And Daughters From Different Parts Of The World. There Are Some Desires That You May Not Receive Until You Give. There Are Certain Great Requests That May Appear Illusive Until You Give Your Best Seed. For You To Be Able To Receive All Your Requests, You Must First Be Prepared To Pay Any Price By Giving Anything God Wants You To.
What You Are Prepared To Give Determines The Extent To Which God Is Compelled To Give To You In Return. Are You Ready To Pay The Ultimate Sacrifice? Sacrificial Giving Never Goes Unrewarded. After Jesus Laid Down His Life For The Sins Of The World, He Was Rewarded With The Name Above Every Other Name (Philippians 2:8-11). Similarly, After Abraham Demonstrated His Love For God, The Lord Swore To Bless Abraham And His Children Beyond Measure, Promising To Multiply His Generations Like The Sand On The Seashore. What Are You Doing To Prove Your Love For God Today?

Key Point:
Every Act Of Love Towards God Is A Seed Sown On The Best Soil, Which Will Definitely Generate A Great Harvest Of Love.

I Am Blessed Beyond Measures In Christ Jesus. The Spirit Of Excellence Lives In Me

I Am Blessed Beyond Measures In Christ Jesus. The Spirit Of Excellence Lives In Me

Deuteronomy 28:4
“Blessed shall be the fruit of your body, the produce of your ground and the increase of your herds, the increase of your cattle and the offspring of your flocks.

Would you want to buy a chair that Jesus made? I would, even if it cost US$1,000 because it would be of superb quality. Whatever Jesus did, He did it with perfect excellence.

And because Christ is in you, the things which you produce will be of exceptional quality too. That includes your children, who will be champions. Deuteronomy 28:4 says, “Blessed shall be the fruit of your body, the produce of your ground and the increase of your herds, the increase of your cattle and the offspring of your flocks”.

God was using terms that the Israelites understood since they were farmers and shepherds. Today, “your ground” is the place of your work. This means that “the produce” of your work shall be of excellent quality.

That is not all. God promises that quantity will always follow quality because Deuteronomy 28:11 says that the Lord will “grant you plenty of goods, in the fruit of your body,” which means that you will have plenty of children, “in the increase of your livestock, and in the produce of your ground,” which means that your business will flourish and you will be a leading producer in the area of your specialty.

My friend, your excellence and plenty do not come by your efforts. They come by the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, who paid for you to have divine provision—“though He was rich, yet for your sakes He became poor, that you through His poverty might become rich”. (2 Corinthians 8:9)

Jesus was made destitute of all material things at the cross. He had nothing! As He hung on the cross, He watched the Roman soldiers gamble for His robe. His last possession on earth was gambled away. He became poor, so that you could be blessed with the excellent and the plenty!

God Will Not Remember My Sins Or Count Them Against Me, All Because Of Jesus

God Will Not Remember My Sins Or Count Them Against Me, All Because Of Jesus

Romans 4:7–8
“Blessed are those whose lawless deeds are forgiven, and whose sins are covered; blessed is the man to whom the Lord shall not impute sin.”

Some people think that if they were more “right” with God, then He would hear their prayers. For example, they sometimes believe that if they had not quarrelled with their wives or had those bad thoughts earlier in the day, then God would answer their prayers.

God is not like that. He wants you to know beyond any doubt that you can always come to His throne of grace with boldness and have every confidence that you will receive His mercy and grace. (Hebrews 4:16) You see, because of Jesus’ finished work on the cross, you are already right with God. You don’t need to do anything to make yourself more right with God.

In fact, by faith in Jesus, you have received the righteousness of God Himself! (2 Corinthians 5:21) And no matter how many mistakes you make, you will never lose that righteousness because in the first place, God gave it to you apart from your works. (Romans 4:5–6) In other words, God did not impute righteousness to you because you were good, but because you believed in Jesus.

Because of what Jesus has done for you at the cross, all your sins—past, present and future—are forgiven. God will by no means ever remember your sins or count them against you! (Hebrews 8:12, 10:17)

My friend, because Jesus has been punished for your sins, today, God is not counting your sins against you. This means that your sins won’t stop Him from hearing and responding to your prayers. So you can always run into His presence knowing that you can boldly stand in and enjoy His presence and His love.

When you know this truth, it is going to set you free in your relationship with God. You can talk to Him without fear or any sense of condemnation. You can practice His presence and trust that He always hears you. Should something happen at home or at work, you don’t always have to call for your church leaders—you pray and God hears you!

Beloved, you are righteous in Christ and God hears your prayers—all because of Jesus!
