Verse Of The Day : It is good that a man should both hope and quietly wait for the salvation of the LORD. Lamentations 3:26
LISTEN : No matter what, never lose hope or be weary of life. To be weary is to grow tired of or bored with something. Never come to the point where you are tired of life or wants to quit making attempts to succeed. My dear, are you troubled, confused or frustrated? Have you prayed countless times and God seems to have abandoned you? Don’t worry, God knows your needs and how you feel (Matthew 6:8,31-32). He will surely visit you at the right time. God cannot be late if He wants to deliver anyone from trouble (Luke 18:7-8). He comes at the right time and not just in our own time (Isaiah 55:8). And those who must receive from Him must learn to wait for Him in faith (Psalms 27:14). People tend to give up hope because they believe they have come to the end of the road in their lives. They believe it is all over, and therefore accept their misfortunes as their own fate. A lot of people think and end this way in times of troubles because they are not established in faith. Anything can shake them to their nerves because they are bankrupt of the word of God. Beloved, no matter what, you should learn to hope in God. Our verse of the day says,“It is good that a man should both hope and quietly wait for the salvation of the LORD.” (Lamentations 3:26). Truly, hope does not disappoint. Hence, keeping your hope alive is the key to your desired future. But when your hope dies, you have regrettably “murdered your future.” So, be strong and wait for God’s salvation. Henceforth, never lose hope or be weary. Be wise

TOPIC : YOU CAN’T FIND HIM UNTIL YOU ARE SERIOUS ABOUT IT
Thursday, February 6, 2020
Bible Verse : You will seek me and find me when you search for me with all your heart. Jeremiah 29:13
LISTEN : God wants your heart, and without your heart you can’t find Him. He needs your heart because what takes your heart has your attention. Until you are serious with God you can’t find Him. “Be serious about it”, a man urged his little daughter who was searching for her school bag and running late to school. Not long she intensified effort that she found it. In the same way, you will prosper in your quest for the knowledge of God when you seek God with all your heart. Truly, you can’t discover God if your love for Him and His word ends in your lips. Your faith and love for Him must not stop in your lips, but dwells in your heart. Beloved, it is quite difficult to find God when you have not felt His absence in your life. Until you realise that you are vulnerable and nothing without Him, it will be impossible to seek Him with all your heart. My dear, absence of God in your life will expose you to destruction and satanic manipulations. Yes! he who abandons God in favour of other gods, God will abandon him too. But those who return to Him in repentance will find Him and receive His mercy. Therefore, be serious with your search for God today. Be wise!
Prayer : Dear Lord, I am in desperate need of you today. Therefore, help me to be serious with my faith and service to you, in Jesus’ name, amen!
