Verse Of The Day : A man that has friends must show himself friendly… Proverbs 18:24
LISTEN : Love to be loved. Yes, do not spread hate rather spread love around the world and let it leads. Love is good, and life is meaningless without it. My dear, life is a complete nightmare without love. The absence of love spells doom for humanity. The absence of love for one another, and lack of fear of God is reason for incessant killing, kidnapping, maiming, insecurity, hatred and all manner of evil in the world today. Thank God for those who fear Him. Who, in spite of all the evil against humanity and God still believes in loving others. Sadly, some people are practically too difficult to love. They do not appreciate the goodness of others. No matter the favour they receive from others, they still treat their benefactors as worthless and foolish. They respond to love with hate, resentment and disdain towards the one who loves them. The more you love them the more they become difficult to be loved. They are impossible. Beloved, does this description speaks of you? Then, you really need to adjust. When you receive love from others try to appreciate it. What you appreciate you attract, but what you despise you repel, forfeit and lose. Beloved, do not blame people for not loving you when you are behaving in a way that makes it difficult to love you. If you must be loved, then, determine to love others. Henceforth, do not make it difficult for people to love you. Be wise!
Having read today’s devotional, what is expected of you?
1. Don’t return hate for love, rather love others in return for love.
2. Appreciate genuine love and resent hate as much as possible.
3. Don’t be an impossible person, instead express with your actions that you can be loved.
4. Acknowledge that love is good, and life is meaningless without it.
Prayer : Dear Lord, You love us because your nature is Love. Therefore, help me to love others as long as I live, amen.
Reflection : When you receive love from others appreciate it, because you may lose it.
Quote : “Love is good, as life is meaningless without it. Absence of love spells doom for humanity; as it’s presence makes everything beautiful.”
Faith Confession : In Jesus’ name, I declare that we are created to love and receive love in return. Therefore, I will love others unconditionally, amen.
Biblical Fact : Did you know that the name Eve means, the mother of all the living? (Genesis 3:20).

TOPIC: GOD DELIVERS THOSE WHO TRUST IN HIM

Bible Verse : Deliver me from my distress; rescue me from my suffering! Psalms 25:17
LISTEN : God is the greatest deliverer. He delivers the oppressed, the hopeless, the afflicted, and all manner of people in any kind of unpleasant situations. There is nothing impossible with Him. He is a wonder-working God. His ears are itching to hear our distress call. He is pleased when you call Him for help in your time of trouble. So never give up no matter what. Instead, pray like David did in our verse of the day. David in the midst of his afflictions cried to God and said,“Deliver me from my distress; rescue me from my suffering” (Psalms 25:17). In his troubles he cried out to God in faith, God delivered him. His prayer was not rejected or despised, and therefore, he joyfully declared,“Surely he rescue me from all troubles, and I triumph over my enemies.” (Psalms 54:7). My dear, are you in some form of danger or distress? Are you in need of deliverance? Then, cry to the LORD today and He will hear your cry and deliver you. Be wise!
Prayer : Everlasting Father, you are the greatest deliverer. Deliver me from my troubles, in Jesus’ name, amen.
