Open Heavens Devotional Sunday 22 January 2017:- Pathway of the foolish

Open Heavens Devotional Sunday 22 January 2017:- Pathway of the foolish

PATHWAY OF THE FOOLISH – Sunday January 22nd 2017

Memorise: The fool hath said in his heart, There is no God. They are corrupt, they have done abominable works, there is none that doeth good. Psalm 14:1
Read: Psalm 14:1-4 (KJV)

The fool hath said in his heart, There is no God. They are corrupt, they have done abominable works, there is none that doeth good.
The Lord looked down from heaven upon the children of men, to see if there were any that did understand, and seek God.

They are all gone aside, they are all together become filthy: there is none that doeth good, no, not one.

Have all the workers of iniquity no knowledge? who eat up my people as they eat bread, and call not upon the Lord.


Bible in one year: Mark 14, Isaiah 19:1-15, Hymn: Sing hymn 11
MESSAGE:
One of characteristics of the godless is that they seek their personal goals without thinking about God. The things they seek after have overtaken the space that God created in them for Himself. Do you know that today, believers, using the excuse of not having time, are chasing after material things at the expense of cultivating a personal relationship with God?

“The fool hath said in his heart, There is no God. They are corrupt, they have done abominable works, there is none that doeth good.”
Psalm 14:1

If you think in your heart that God does not exist, even when you have not verbalised such thoughts, God has heard you. Open Heavens Devotional Sunday 22 January 2017:- Pathway of the foolish. If you are one of those who believe that although God exists, He is too slow, too weak or too inconsequential to bring about the needed intervention in a given situation, you are in the same class with the godless. God simply call such people fools.

Why would God call someone a fool? If a person considers the whole observable universe – the sun, the moon, the stars, galaxies, planets, plants, the seas, lakes, rivers, beautiful landscapes, all the mineral deposits in the soil, water springs, the skyline, rain and various weather conditions – and still concludes in his or her heart that these things created themselves, though accepting that no human hand created them, such a person is best described as being on a fool’s path. You do not need anyone to tell you that there is a God somewhere; a very great and massive God who created all these things, and who supervises their operations. A fool is someone who denies obvious truths and facts. Similarly, a fool is one who decides to live the way he or she pleases. Many people live the way he or she please. Many people live their lives the way they do they do right now because they never think of the day of reckoning. Believe it or not, that day will come for everybody. A fool also is the fellow who pushes God aside but pursues the gift and blessing He gives. How can you desire to receive gifts from God without wanting to know the Giver of such gifts? Unfortunately, many believers are letting go of their personal relationship with God for material pursuits and are fast becoming fools. Open heavens 2017 manual. They are on the highway of foolishness. Are you considered a fool? Repent, beat a retreat and make God your number one priority today. 
Key Point:
Men hardly fail to take credit for their achievements, yet they readily rob God of His.

TOPIC- HE BECAME LIKE US


Luke 2:52, "And Jesus increased in wisdom and stature, and in favour with God and man."



LUKE 2:52
How could it be that Jesus, who was God (Jn. 1:1; 1 Tim. 3:16), and in whom are hidden all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge, increased in wisdom? (Col. 2:3)

God is a Spirit (Jn. 4:24). Jesus, as God, had existed as a Spirit forever.


When He came to the earth as Jesus, he was Lord at birth, but that was in His Spirit (Lk. 2:11). His Spirit didn't have to grow or increase in wisdom but His physical body did.

The Lord could have done things differently, but He didn't. Jesus came into this world in His physical body exactly as we did. He had to grow and learn.
Daily Devotional with Andrew Wommack

He became just like us so that we could become just like Him (2 Cor. 5:21).


This is the great exchange. He became like us so that He could bear all our iniquities and become a mercy high priest for us (Heb. 2:14-18).

Christianity does not produce a changed life but an exchanged life. Christ does not reform us, but He transforms us through His union with us. In the same way that the Eternal Christ could come and inhabit the body of an infant and still retain all His deity, He now inhabits our bodies through the new birth in all His glory and power. Like Jesus, grow in your wisdom and understanding of who you now are in Christ.

TOPIC- Live Like Jesus



But [Christ Jesus] made himself of no reputation, and took upon him the form of a servant, and was made in the likeness of men.
Philippians 2:7


The truth of this verse hasn't really dawned on most people. They mistakenly think that Jesus was able to work wonders, to perform miracles and to live above sin because He had divine powers that we don't have. Thus, they have never really aspired to live like He lived.

"Oh my," they say with great humility, "I could never live like Jesus did. After all, He had an advantage. He was God!"

They don't realize that when Jesus came to earth, He voluntarily gave up that advantage, living His life here not as God but as a man. He had no innate supernatural powers. He had no ability to perform miracles until after He was anointed by the Holy Spirit as recorded in Luke 3:22. He worked wonders, not by His own power but by the power of the Father, saying, "The Father that dwelleth in me, he doeth the works" (John 14:10).

And when He prayed, He prayed not as a divine One who had authority as God, but as a man who walked obediently with God. And, as Hebrews 5:7 says, "His prayers were heard not because of His deity, but because of His reverence toward God" (The Amplified Bible).

Kenneth Copeland Ministries Daily Devotional  

Jesus, the divine Son of God, set aside the privileges and powers of deity for a time and lived as a man on earth. Once you grasp that, it will absolutely thrill your soul! Why? Because it means that you, as a reborn child of God, filled with the same Holy Spirit as Jesus was, have the same opportunity to live as He lived on earth. In fact, that is exactly what He intends. In John 17:18 He said to the Father, "Just as You sent Me into the world, I also have sent them into the world" (The Amplified Bible).


Jesus has sent you into the world to live as He lived. Through the new birth, He's enabled you to exchange the sinful nature of Adam for the sinless nature of God.

He's given you the ability and the command to live above sin, to live in fellowship with the Father, to preach the gospel, to heal the sick, to raise the dead, to cast out demons and to make disciples.

Once you realize that, you'll throw off the shackles of doubt that have held you back. You'll begin to live as Jesus meant for you to live—not as a sin-ridden son of fallen man, but as a reborn child of the Most High God. Then those around you will actually begin to see Jesus—in you.

OUR Daily Bread Devotional January 22, 2017;-  God’s Face By Philip Yancey

OUR Daily Bread Devotional January 22, 2017;- God’s Face By Philip Yancey

TOPIC;- -  God’s Face


Read: 2 Corinthians 4:4–15 

For God . . . made his light shine in our hearts to give us the light of the knowledge of God’s glory displayed in the face of Christ. 2 Corinthians 4:6



Much of my career as a writer has revolved around the problem of pain. I return again and again to the same questions, as if fingering an old wound that never quite heals. I hear from readers of my books, and their anguished stories give human faces to my doubts. I remember a youth pastor calling me after he had learned that his wife and baby daughter were dying of AIDS because of a tainted blood transfusion. “How can I talk to my youth group about a loving God?” he asked. OUR Daily Bread Devotional 

I have learned to not even attempt an answer to these “why” questions. Why did the youth pastor’s wife happen to get the one tainted bottle of blood? Why does a tornado hit one town and skip over another? Why do prayers for physical healing go unanswered?


For what we preach is not ourselves, but Jesus Christ as Lord. 2 Corinthians 4:5
One question, however, no longer gnaws at me as it once did: “Does God care?” I know of only one way to answer that question, and the answer is Jesus. In Jesus, God gave us a face. If you wonder how God feels about the suffering on this groaning planet, look at that face. OUR Daily Bread Devotional 

“Does God care?” His Son’s death on our behalf, which will ultimately destroy all pain, sorrow, suffering, and death for eternity, answers that question. “For God, who said, ‘Let light shine out of darkness,’ made his light shine in our hearts to give us the light of the knowledge of God’s glory displayed in the face of Christ” (2 Cor. 4:6).


God’s love for us is as expansive as the open arms of Christ on the cross.

Dunamis Gospel DIGC Seed of Destiny Sunday, 22 January 2017- CREATED TO BE IN PARTNERSHIP WITH GOD

TOPIC- CREATED TO BE IN PARTNERSHIP WITH GOD

ENGLISH FRENCH AND SPANISH 

SCRIPTURE: And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth. Genesis 1:26.



THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: One of the greatest privileges on earth is the privilege of being used by God.

The primary reason God created us is to fulfil His purpose on earth by establishing His Dominion, Rulership and Authority on the earth according to our anchor scripture. One of the greatest privileges on earth is the privilege of being used by God. It is exciting to partner with God to fulfil His purpose on earth. So, fulfilling God’s purpose is a privilege. 

God wants His children to represent Him and take the topmost positions in the government, politics, industry, ministry, etc. in order to enforce His agenda on earth.

Therefore, it is not God’s Will for us to live for ourselves without pursuing Divine agenda on earth, but to live a life that is beneficial to both Heaven and earth. We were created to be in Divine partnership or alliance with God to fulfil His mandate on earth. 


Beloved, your role in this Divine partnership is to make up your mind and take the responsibilities of fulfilling God’s purpose. Pay the price to stand out for God like Mary, Daniel, Shadrach, Meshach, Abednego and Esther. Represent God in any place you find yourself. Do not be a disgrace to the Kingdom. 

Remember this: One of the greatest privileges on earth is the privilege of being used by God. 

ASSIGNMENTS:
1. Discover the area you are meant to partner with God.
2. Make up your mind to fulfil God’s agenda for your life.
3. Determine to rise to the place of influence in your career or calling in life.

PRAYER: Give me the grace LORD, to partner with You by fulfilling Your purpose for my life, in Jesus’ Name.

SEEDS OF DESTINY IN FRENCH:SEMENCE DE DESTINEE


DIMANCHE, LE 22 JANVIER 2017
THEME: CREE POUR ETRE PARTENAIRE AVEC DIEU

LES SAINTES ÉCRITURES : Puis Dieu dit: Faisons l’homme à notre image, selon notre ressemblance, et qu’il domine sur les poissons de la mer, sur les oiseaux du ciel, sur le bétail, sur toute la terre, et sur tous les reptiles qui rampent sur la terre. Genèse 1:26.

PENSEE DU JOUR: L'un des plus grands privilèges sur la terre est le privilège d'être utilisé par Dieu.

Selon notre verset d’ancrage, la principale raison pour laquelle Dieu nous a créés est d'accomplir Son dessein sur la terre, en y établissant Sa domination, Son pouvoir et Son autorité.

L'un des plus grands privilèges sur la terre est le privilège d'être utilisé par Dieu. C’est excitant de s'associer avec Dieu pour accomplir Son dessein sur la terre. Ainsi, accomplir le but de Dieu est un privilège.

Dieu veut que Ses enfants Le représentent et prennent les positions les plus élevées dans le Gouvernement, la Politique, l'Industrie, le Ministère, etc. afin de faire respecter Son programme sur la terre.
Par conséquent, ce n'est pas la volonté de Dieu que nous vivions pour nous-mêmes sans poursuivre l'ordre divin, car Sa volonté est que nous vivions une vie qui soit bénéfique tant au ciel et qu’à la terre. Nous avons été créés pour être en partenariat avec Dieu, afin d’accomplir Son mandat sur la terre.

Bien-aimé, votre rôle dans ce partenariat divin consiste à accepter de prendre des responsabilités qui s’imposent, pour l'accomplissement du dessein de Dieu. Payez le prix qu’il faut pour vous démarquer pour Dieu comme Marie, Daniel, Shadrach, Meshach, Abednego et Esther. Représentez valablement Dieu partout où vous vous trouvez. Ne soyez pas une honte pour la Royaume.

Rappelez-vous ceci: L'un des plus grands privilèges sur terre est le privilège d'être utilisé par Dieu.

DEVOIRS :
1. Découvrez le domaine à travers lequel votre partenariat avec Dieu fonctionne.
2. Décidez-vous d'accomplir le plan de Dieu pour votre vie.

SEEDS OF DESTINY IN SPANISH:SEMILLA DE DESTINO


DOMINGO, 22 DE ENERO DE 2017
TEMA: CREADO PARA ESTAR EN ASOCIACIÓN CON DIOS

LA ESCRITURA: Entonces dijo Dios: Hagamos al hombre a nuestra imagen, conforme a nuestra semejanza; y señoree en los peces del mar, en las aves de los cielos, en las bestias, en toda la tierra, y en todo animal que se arrastra sobre la tierra. GÉNESIS 1:26.

PENSAMIENTO PARA EL DÍA: Uno de los mayores privilegios en la tierra es el privilegio de ser usado por Dios.

La razón principal por la cual Dios nos creó es para cumplir Su propósito en la tierra estableciendo Su Dominio, Gobierno y Autoridad en la tierra de acuerdo a nuestra escritura de referencia. Uno de los mayores privilegios en la tierra es el privilegio de ser usado por Dios. Es emocionante asociarse con Dios para cumplir Su propósito en la tierra. Por lo tanto, cumplir con el propósito de Dios es un privilegio.

Dios quiere que Sus hijos lo representen y tomen las posiciones más altas en el gobierno, la política, la industria, el ministerio, etc., para hacer cumplir Su agenda en la tierra.

Por lo tanto, no es la Voluntad de Dios que vivamos para nosotros mismos sin perseguir la agenda divina en la tierra, sino vivir una vida que sea beneficiosa tanto para el Cielo como para la tierra. Fuimos creados para estar en asociación divina o alianza con Dios para cumplir Su mandato en la tierra.

Amado, tu papel en esta asociación divina es tomar una decisión y asumir las responsabilidades de cumplir el propósito de Dios. Pague el precio de destacarse para Dios como María, Daniel, Sadrac, Mesac, Abednego y Ester. Represente a Dios en todo lugar en el que usted se encuentre. No sea una vergüenza para el reino.

Recuerde Esto: Uno de los mayores privilegios en la tierra es el privilegio de ser usado por Dios.

TOPIC- By What Authority?


Read the Scripture: Mark 11:27-12:27

Then Jesus said to them, Give to Caesar what is Caesar's and to God what is God's (Mark 12:17).



I remember reading some time ago of a brilliant young lawyer who had been raised a pagan and had no use for Christianity. Someone had given him the New Testament, and he was reading it through. When he came to this account in Mark, he read this question with great interest, for he himself had recently been involved with just such a dilemma. When the full impact of Jesus' actions hit this man, he was utterly astonished. He dropped the Bible and said to himself, That's the most amazing wisdom! For our Lord did not try to answer the question directly. In that wonderful way He had, He called for a coin—He had to borrow one, for He had none of His own—and held it up. Whose picture is on this coin? He asked. They said, Caesar's. He said, All right, then, it must be Caesar's money. Render to Caesar the things that are Caesar's. But God has His stamp upon you, so render to God the things that are God's.


He shows us that human authority is not only limited in duration; it is limited in its scope. It deals with only a part of people. The secular government is ordained by God. The apostle Paul tells us that plainly, and Peter says the same thing: Submit yourselves for the Lord's sake to every authority instituted among men: whether to the king, as the supreme authority, or to governors, who are sent by him to punish those who do wrong and to commend those who do right (1 Peter 2:13-14). Peter acknowledges that God is behind secular government—even bad government. For the king that Peter referred to was none other than Nero, wretched moral degenerate that he was. Yet Peter says to honor the king as the supreme authority.
Ray Stedman Daily Devotions


But human government, Jesus says, has only limited control over people. It has certain powers over its citizens' bodies and minds. It can regulate our conduct to some degree and has the right to influence and regulate our attitudes and actions and what we say and how we say it. But there is one area in human life over which secular power has no control, and that is the human spirit. Secular power cannot legislate who we worship, who governs our conscience, and who constitutes the ultimate authority of life. Give to Caesar what is Caesar's. Certain things do properly belong to Caesar; give them to him. But other things about you belong only to God, so give those to God.

The Russian author Solzhenytsin stands as an example of the wrong that is done by secular might when it tries to govern and control the worship of people. Almost single-handedly, he has defied one of the mightiest powers of earth and revealed the viciousness and the exploitation that always results when secular might seeks to invade that proscribed area of human existence, the human spirit. Jesus is saying that the ultimate issues of life belong to God, not to people, and human authority is therefore limited in its scope.


Father, thank You for this One who helps me to see things rightly, who puts things in proper perspective and makes me understand who I am, and what I am, and to whom I am responsible.
Life Application: To what extent do we need to avow and submit to human government? What are its limitations? What is the ultimate authority to which Christ's disciples are responsible?

We hope you were blessed by this daily devotion.

TOPIC- Angels Around Us


But the angel of the Lord by night opened the prison doors, and brought them forth . . . 
—Acts 5:19



Demonic activity and Satan worship are on the increase in all parts of the world. The devil is at work more than at any other time. The Bible says that because he realizes his time is short, Satan’s activity will increase. But his evil activities are countered for the people of God by His ministering spirits, the holy ones of the angelic order. Christians should never fail to sense the operation of angelic glory. It forever eclipses the world of demonic powers, as the sun does a candle’s light. If you are a believer, expect powerful angels to accompany you in your life experiences. 
Billy Graham Daily Devotional 

And let those events dramatically illustrate the friendly presence of “the holy ones” as Daniel calls them. Certainly, the eye of faith sees many evidences of the supernatural display of God’s power and glory. God is still in business.

Prayer for the day

When I am tempted by Satan, I will remember Your angels are around me, Lord.

Daily Hope Devotional BY RICK WARREN January 21, 2017- Spiritual Growth Requires a Plan

TOPIC- Spiritual Growth Requires a Plan


“You have been believers so long now that you ought to be teaching others. Instead, you need someone to teach you again the basic things about God’s word. You are like babies who need milk and cannot eat solid food” (Hebrews 5:12 NLT, second edition)

Millions of Christians have grown older without ever growing up; they act as though spiritual growth is automatic. They may have a plan to save for retirement. They may have a plan for sending their kids to college. But they don’t have a strategy for enriching their souls. They leave the single most important facet of human existence to chance! 

But a soul doesn’t automatically grow to maturity any more than a baby automatically grows to physical maturity. You need to have a plan for feeding, exercise, education — and especially potty training! — if a child is going to grow up healthy, strong, and mature. 

A baby left on its own withers and dies. The same thing is true of your soul. Our world is full of people who have grown older but are still babies when it comes to spiritual maturity. 

Daily Hope Devotional BY RICK WARREN 

Spiritual growth is not automatic, even for people who have opened their hearts to Christ. The writer of Hebrews sadly noted, “You have been believers so long now that you ought to be teaching others. Instead, you need someone to teach you again the basic things about God’s word. You are like babies who need milk and cannot eat solid food. For someone who lives on milk is still an infant and doesn’t know how to do what is right. Solid food is for those who are mature, who through training have the skill to recognize the difference between right and wrong” (Hebrews 5:12-14 NLT, second edition).

Spiritual growth doesn’t just happen. You have to have a plan!

Joseph Prince Devotional January 21, 2017- GOD IS NOT ON A SIN HUNT

TOPIC-  GOD IS NOT ON A SIN HUNT


1 Thessalonians 5:9For God did not appoint us to wrath, but to obtain salvation through our Lord Jesus Christ,

When you think of Sodom and Gomorrah, what comes to your mind? God’s wrath and fiery judgment? The truth is that God was not all out to judge the people of Sodom and Gomorrah. He was not on a sin hunt. He was, in fact, on a righteousness hunt!

This is evident because if God was on a sin hunt, He would not have allowed anyone to stop Him. But we know that He let Abraham in on what He was about to do and even allowed Abraham to entreat Him.

Abraham asked God if He would destroy Sodom if He could find 50 righteous people there. God’s reply was, “If I find in Sodom fifty righteous within the city, then I will spare all the place for their sakes.” (Genesis 18:26) Abraham then asked God if He would destroy the city if there were only 45…40…30…or 10 righteous. And each time, God’s reply was that He would spare the place for the sake of the righteous.

Abraham stopped at 10. If he had gone down to just one righteous man, I believe God’s reply would have been the same because He was on a righteousness hunt.

Now, if God was not all out to destroy then, how much more today, when God has already judged our sins in the body of His Son? At the cross, Jesus exhausted all of God’s fiery judgments until there was no more fire of God’s wrath left for us!
Joseph Prince Devotional 


Today, God is not judging us for our sins because He has found the righteousness of the one Man—Christ Jesus. So do not let anyone tell you that God judges you for your sins and punishes you with cancer, car accidents, business failures or brokenness. God would be unjust if He punished the same sins twice—in Jesus’ body and then in yours.

Beloved, God is not out to judge you but bless you today, not because you deserve it, but because Jesus was judged and punished in your place!

Thought For The Day
God would be unjust if He punished the same sins twice—in Jesus’ body and then in yours.

TOPIC- Delight in Him



Behold, what I have seen to be good and fitting is for one to eat and drink, and to find enjoyment in all the labor in which he labors under the sun all the days which God gives him—for this is his [allotted] part. Also, every man to whom God has given riches and possessions, and the power to enjoy them and to accept his appointed lot and to rejoice in his toil—this is the gift of God [to him]. —Ecclesiastes 5:18-19

I want you to notice the words allotted part and appointed lot in the above passage. What King Solomon is basically communicating here is this message: enjoy your life. Take your “appointed lot” in life and enjoy it. In other words, embrace the life—the personality, the strengths and weaknesses, the family, the resources, the opportunities, the physical qualities, the abilities, the gifts, and the uniqueness—God has given you.

Joel Osteen Ministries Devotional  January 21, 2017- Delight in Him

The only life you can enjoy is your own. That statement may seem so obvious that it’s unnecessary, but think about it. One of the primary reasons many people do not enjoy their lives is because they are not happy with the lives they have. When I speak to them about enjoying their lives, the first thought they often have is, I would enjoy my life if I had your life, Joyce! Instead of embracing the realities of their lives, these people spend their time thinking, I wish I looked like So-and-So. I wish I had So-and-So’s job. I wish I were married. I wish my marriage weren’t so difficult. I wish I had children. I wish my children would grow up. I wish I had a new house. I wish I didn’t have such a big house to clean. I wish I had a big ministry . . .

The truth of the matter is, the first step to enjoying our everyday lives is to be grateful for the lives we’ve been given. We must not allow jealousy to cause us to be absent from our own lives because we want what someone else has. You have to take what you have and decide you are going to do the best you can with it. What are you doing with what you have been given?

Trust in Him: God is asking you to be faithful with your life, not with someone else’s. Trust that God knew what He was doing when He gave your life to you.

When I speak to them about enjoying their lives, the first thought they often have is, I would enjoy my life if I had your life, Joyce! Instead of embracing the realities of their lives, these people spend their time thinking, I wish I looked like So-and-So. I wish I had So-and-So’s job. I wish I were married. I wish my marriage weren’t so difficult. I wish I had children. I wish my children would grow up. I wish I had a new house. I wish I didn’t have such a big house to clean. I wish I had a big ministry . . .
Joyce Meyer Daily Devotionals   January 21, 2017


The truth of the matter is, the first step to enjoying our everyday lives is to be grateful for the lives we’ve been given. We must not allow jealousy to cause us to be absent from our own lives because we want what someone else has. You have to take what you have and decide you are going to do the best you can with it. What are you doing with what you have been given?

Trust in Him: 
God is asking you to be faithful with your life, not with someone else’s. Trust that God knew what He was doing when He gave your life to you.

DCLM Daily Devotional by pastor Kumuyi Saturday January 21, 2017- ABSOLUTE TRUST IN GOD

TOPIC- ABSOLUTE TRUST IN GOD


TEXT-ISAIAH 28:18-27

KEY VERSE:"And your covenant with death shall be disannulled, and your agreement with hell shall not stand; when the overflowing scourge shall pass through, then ye shall be trodden down by it" (Isaiah 28:18).Pro

phet Isaiah was a balanced prophet. He was not the type of prophet with a sugar-coated tongue who only prophesied peace without condemning the iniquities of the people. This prophet was so bold as to let the Jewish people know that whatever they trusted for justification or protection, or for happiness or healing and deliverance, except for the righteousness of God and the influence and power of the Holy Ghost, would ultimately prove abortive and vain. According to the text, the Jews believed in their works of righteousness which God told them would not suffice. The text describes the bed as too short, and the covering too narrow. This tells us that trusting and resting on our own will and self-management will result in regret and gross disappointment. Religion is not enough; righteousness of Christ must be carefully sought and wisely husbanded. Prophet Isaiah compares God’s work among the nations to those of a farmer on his soil. 
DCLM Daily Devotional by pastor Kumuyi Saturday
The husband man (farmer) does his work with pains and prudence and handles the plants according to their nature. The Almighty God who gives men this great wisdom is wonderful in counsel and excellent in His working. Afflictions are God’s threshing instruments to loosen us from the world, to part between us and our chaff, and to prepare us for use. As the occasion requires, the Lord warns, corrects, spares, shows mercy or executes vengeance. How we need to heed God’s warning today and not to trust in anything outside Christ. It takes trust and diligence to please God. It takes confidence and faith in His promises to appropriate His blessings, with a firm and unflagging resolve to abide in His will.

Thought for the day: Life without Christ is full of crises.

HOW SELFLESS ARE YOU? – Saturday January 21st 2017

Memorise: Even as the Son of man came not to be ministered unto, but to minister, and to give his life a ransom for many. Mathew 20:28
Read: Matthew 20:24-28 (King James Version)

24 And when the ten heard it, they were moved with indignation against the two brethren.

25 But Jesus called them unto him, and said, Ye know that the princes of the Gentiles exercise dominion over them, and they that are great exercise authority upon them.

26 But it shall not be so among you: but whosoever will be great among you, let him be your minister;

27 And whosoever will be chief among you, let him be your servant:


28 Even as the Son of man came not to be ministered unto, but to minister, and to give his life a ransom for many.

MESSAGE:
The Holy Spirit made it clear that some of the prevailing characteristics of people living in the last days would be selfishness, self-centredness and inconsideration of others (2nd Timothy 3:1-5). But for those of us who are the elect of God, He says this to us:

“Look not every man on his own things, but every man also on the things of others.”
Philippians 2:4
If you are fully focused on yourself and hardly think of others, you have been overtaken by the bug of the last days. If all your prayer points are centred on yourself and your family, you will need the further work of grace to sanctify you. Open Heavens Devotional Saturday 21 January 2017:- How selfless are you? When you are filled with the compassion of Jesus, other people’s interests will be paramount in your heart. You will not want to offend them, and you will think more about their wellbeing. You will also intercede for people with various challenges in your extended family, church, community, state or nation. If you are struggling with helping others, you need to allow the Holy Spirit work on your mind to bring it in conformity with the mind of Christ.


When you manifest the mind of Christ, genuine humility will be seen in you. The mind of Christ will affect the way you run your business, ministry, family, etc. It will affect your love for those under you and the level of sacrifice you are willing to make for God and His people. Jesus could give up His life for many because of the kind of mindset He had. 2017 Open heavens devotional. If you have the mind of Christ, regardless of the number of signs, wonders and miracles God has done through you, you will be unable to boss people around, virtually expecting people to worship you. If you have the mind of Christ, you will be a true servant leader, and you will obey God without conditions or limits. Only the fellow manifesting the mind of Christ will be able to give anything the Lord requests of him or her. With this mindset, just like Paul, you will be prepared to suffer any hardship, take any risk and even lose your life for Jesus (Acts 21:8-14). With the mind of Christ, you will be able to say like Paul,

“For to me to live in Christ, and to die is gain.”
Philippians 1:21

Prayer Point
Ask that the Spirit of holiness will be manifest in the Body of Christ worldwide.

Dunamis Gospel DIGC Seed of Destiny Saturday, 21 January 2017- ROFITING FROM THE WORD

TOPIC- ROFITING FROM THE WORD



SCRIPTURE: Open thou mine eyes, that I may behold wondrous things out of thy law. Psalm 119:18.

ENGLISH FRENCH AND SPANISH 





THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: God’s Word works for those who work it.

God’s intention for giving us His Word is to make us benefit from it. All that we need in life to be everything God created us to be is in God’s Word. Therefore, studying God’s Word to know what is written is very important.

Now, how do we derive Divine benefits from the Word of God?
1. Pray for the light of God’s Word: When Jesus opened the book, He located the place where the Word concerning Him was written in the Bible (Luke 4:17-18). There are things our physical eyes cannot see from God’s Word until our spiritual eyes have been opened through prayer. It takes prayer to see light from God’s Word. 

2. Act on the Word: God’s Word works for those who work it. Do not just look for Scripture to quote but to act on. In 2 Kings 5:14, when Naaman agreed to act on the Word, he was healed. It is the doing of the Word that produces results (Luke 5:4-6). 

Beloved, act on the revealed Word. When you find the Word on a particular subject, practice it by doing what it says.


Remember this: God’s Word works for those who work it.

ASSIGNMENTS:1. Pray for the revelation of God’s Word before you study it.2. Act on every revealed Word in your spirit.

SEEDS OF DESTINY IN FRENCH:SEMENCE DE DESTINEE


SAMEDI, LE 21 JANVIER 2017
THEME: PROFITER DE LA PAROLE DE DIEU

LES SAINTES ÉCRITURES : Ouvre mes yeux, pour que je contemple Les merveilles de Ta loi! Psaume119:18.

PENSEE DU JOUR: La Parole de Dieu fonctionne pour ceux qui travaillent avec Elle.

En nous donnant Sa Parole, l'intention de Dieu était de nous en faire bénéficier. La Parole de Dieu c’est pour notre bénéfice. Tout ce dont nous avons besoin dans la vie pour devenir la personne que Dieu nous appelle à être se trouve dans Sa Parole. Par conséquent, étudier la Parole de Dieu pour savoir ce qui y est écrit est très important.

Alors, comment pouvons-nous tirer avantage de la Parole de Dieu?

1. Priez pour recevoir la lumière de la Parole de Dieu: Il y a des choses que nos yeux physiques ne peuvent pas voir dans la Parole de Dieu jusqu'à ce que nos yeux spirituels aient été ouverts par la prière. Quand Jésus a ouvert le Livre, Il a localisé l'endroit où la Parole qui Le concernant était écrite. (Luc 4: 17-18). Il faut prier pour voir la lumière de la Parole de Dieu.

2. Agissez sur la base de la Parole: La Parole de Dieu fonctionne pour ceux qui travaillent avec Elle. Ne cherchez pas simplement les Écritures que vous allez déclarer, mais aussi celles sur la base de laquelle vous devrez agir. Dans 2 Rois 5:14, quand Naaman a accepté d'agir sur la base de la Parole, il a été guéri. C'est le fait d’agir selon la Parole que l’on obtient des résultats (Luc 5: 4-6).

Bien-aimés, agissez selon la Parole qui vous est révélée. Lorsque vous trouvez un passage dans la Parole concernant un sujet particulier, mettez-la en pratique.

Rappelez-vous ceci: La Parole de Dieu fonctionne pour ceux qui travaillent avec Elle.

DEVOIRS
1. Priez pour recevoir la révélation de la Parole de Dieu avant que vous ne commenciez à l'étudiez.
2. Agissez selon chaque Parole qui vous a été révélée.


PRIERE: Ouvre mes yeux, Seigneur, pour que je puisse contempler les merveilles contenues dans Ta Parole. Donne-moi la grâce, Seigneur, d'agir selon Ta Parole, au Nom de Jésus.

LECTURE QUOTIDIENNE: Gen. 42: 18 à Gen. 43: 34, Mt. 13:47 à Mt. 14:12, Ps. 18:16 - 36, Prov. 4: 7 - 10.

SEEDS OF DESTINY IN SPANISH:SEMILLA DE DESTINO


SÁBADO, 21 DE ENERO DE 2017
TEMA: BENEFICIÁNDOSE DE LA PALABRA

LA ESCRITURA: Abre mis ojos, y miraré las maravillas de tu ley. SALMOS 119:18.

PENSAMIENTO PARA EL DÍA: La Palabra de Dios trabaja para aquellos que la practican.

La intención de Dios de darnos Su Palabra es para hacernos beneficiar de ella. La Palabra de Dios es para nuestro beneficio. Todo lo que necesitamos en la vida para lograr todo lo que Dios nos creó para ser está en la Palabra de Dios. Por lo tanto, el estudio de la Palabra de Dios para conocer lo que está escrito es muy importante.


Ahora bien, ¿cómo alcanzamos los beneficios Divinos de la Palabra de Dios?
1. Ore por la luz de la Palabra de Dios: Hay cosas que nuestros ojos físicos no pueden ver en la Palabra de Dios hasta que nuestros ojos espirituales son abiertos a través de la oración. Cuando Jesús abrió el libro, Él localizó el lugar donde la Palabra concerniente a Él fue escrita en la Biblia (Lucas 4:17-18). Se necesita oración para ver la luz de la Palabra de Dios.
2. Practique la Palabra: La Palabra de Dios trabaja para aquellos que la practican. No busque solo Escrituras para citar, sino para obrar. En 2 Reyes 5:14, cuando Naamán accedió a obedecer la Palabra, fue sanado. Es obediencia a la Palabra que produce resultados (Lucas 5:4-6).

Amado, actúe sobre la Palabra revelada. Cuando encuentre la Palabra en un tema en particular, practique lo que dice.

Recuerde Esto: La Palabra de Dios trabaja para aquellos que la practican.

TAREA(S):
1. Ore por la revelación de la Palabra de Dios antes de estudiarla.
2. Actúe sobre cada Palabra revelada en su espíritu.

ORACIÓN: SEÑOR abre mis ojos para ver las maravillas de Tu Palabra. Dame la gracia, SEÑOR, para obedecer Tu Palabra en el Nombre de Jesús.
