Verse Of The Day : Behold, I am the LORD, the God of all flesh: is there any thing too hard for me? Jeremiah 32:27
LISTEN : God is bigger than everything and everyone. The more you appreciate and acknowledge the greatness of God, the more of His goodness you will experience. My dear, God is greater than your troubles, but you cannot experience the power of His greatness in your troubles until you believe that He is truly greater than all. You will become stronger and confident in time of trouble when you realise that there is nothing greater than God. Where God is involved no opposition can prevail against His plans. He succeeds in what He does, because no one is too powerful to stand in His ways and not be crushed. Beloved, power lies with God. Therefore, if God is bigger than our problems it means that He can do all things; and if God can do all things, it means we can have what we ask of Him if we ask in faith and in line with His will. My dear, do not be afraid. God is the strength of the weak and the hope of the hopeless. When it is established that, you have reached the limit of your struggle for survival and knows nothing else to do, God will strengthen you for exploit. When you put your trust in Him He will give you what you ask of Him. Do you believe that? The Bible says, “Jesus said unto him, If you can believe, all things are possible to him that believes.“ (Mark 9:23). Beloved, nothing is impossible to achieve if you can believe (Luke 1:37). So, do not give up. You are too precious to God to be abandoned. Just trust in God. Remember, God is bigger than your troubles. Be wise!
Having read today’s devotional, what is expected of you?
1. Believe the word of God and always act in line with His will.
2. Do what you can do, and God will do what you do not have the strength to do.
3. Always remember that, if God is for you no one can prevail against you.
4. Believe what God says about you and stop doubting His promises.
Prayer : Heavenly Father, You are the most powerful God. Therefore, help us to trust our inabilities in your hands, in Jesus’ name, amen!
Reflection : God is greater than your troubles, but you cannot experience the power of His greatness until you believe He is truly greater than all.

TOPIC : RUN WITH THE TIME
Bible Verse : To every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven. Ecclesiastics 3:1
LISTEN : There is time for everything. Neglecting to make the most of your time is accepting to end a failure. Time waits for no nobody. So, learn to do the right thing at the right time. Pursue your God-given purpose when you still have the time. My dear, life is too short and will be meaningless without purpose. Our purpose in life is the very meaning of our existence, and without understanding of this fact, we will suffer as a result of our own ignorance. We cannot make the most of our lives if our purposes of existence are not known. We will be tempted to believe and conclude that our lives do not matter, and we cannot impact our generation. From our Bible text above, we have many insights into the purpose of man on Earth and how to live a meaningful life by making the most of our time. It is imperative to know that time is important to every purpose in life. Hence, when time is undermined purpose is equally undermined. Beloved, pursue your purpose when you still have the time. Be wise!
Prayer : Dear Lord, help me to pursue your purpose for my life when there is still time, amen!
