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
THOUGHT OF THE DAY : Serving the all-powerful God and believing in His power is key to experiencing His power.
LISTEN : God is all-powerful, and the all-powerful God is greater than all because He is from above. He is God of the blacks and whites ; tall and short; high and low, rich and poor, etc. He is not limited by anything, but He could be limited in our lives by our own faithlessness. Lack of faith would close the door to our requests. Faith is the channel that links us up to God, as lack of faith makes it difficult for God to relate freely to us. As a matter of fact, where faith is missing God cannot be pleased. The Bible says, “Without faith it is impossible to please God...(Hebrews 11:6). Faith in God is the pathway to His blessings. Yes, the power of God travels in the direction of faith. Faith brings the power of God to our situations. Where faith is, God is present. And it is not possible to be full of faith and be empty of divine intervention. My dear, do you want to experience divine intervention? Then, put your trust in the all-powerful God. Know that He is the Almighty God and with Him nothing is impossible. Friend, to see God turn your impossibilities to possibilities you must believe who He is. He declares, “Behold, I am the LORD, the God of all flesh : is there any thing too hard for me?” (Jeremiah 32:27). The truth is, if you cannot believe who God is and what He can do you cannot experience His power. Therefore, trust in God and He will reveal His power to you. Be wise!

TOPIC : SING TO GOD
Sunday, June 21, 2020
Bible Verse : I will sing to the LORD, because he has been good to me. Psalms 13:6
LISTEN : God’s goodness to humanity should trigger a heart of praise for Him. When we praise God, God will release His blessings. My dear, let us rejoice in the Lord for He is good, and His mercy endures forever. (Psalms 136:1-25). Let us sing to God for He is good to all, both young and old. No one can deny His goodness to humanity. Beloved, life is expression of God’s goodness to you. So, do not take it for granted, or complain about what you think is not good enough in your life. Learn to acknowledge and appreciate the goodness of God no matter what. If you can praise God for what He has done for you no matter how little, He will do more for you. David understands how reasonable it is to reciprocate God’s goodness, and he said, “I will sing to the LORD, because he has been good to me.” (Psalms 13:6). Beloved, is God not good to you? If really He is good to you, then, sing and honour Him for His goodness in your life today, and never stop to rejoice for what God has done for you. Sing a new song to the Lord and glorify Him for His favours. Remember, your mouth of praise will provoke God’s hand of blessings. Be wise!
Prayer : Dear Lord, I will praise You for your goodness in my life, amen!
