DCLM Daily Manna 23 February 2018 Devotional by Pastor W.F. Kumuyi

Topic: Planted to Flourish

Bible Text: Psalm 92:1-15 – DCLM Daily Manna 23 February 2018

 Key Verse: “Those that be planted in the house of the LORD shall flourish in the courts of our God” (Psalm 92:13).

Message: There are marked differences between weeds and plants. The most noticeable of these is the fact that weeds are free-growing whereas plants are planted and cultivated. Weeds are often invasive and attain rapid growth but are undesirable. Plants, on the other hand, are delicate and are painstakingly nurtured to bear desirable fruits or for their aesthetic, therapeutic or other values.DCLM Daily Manna 23 February 2018

This horticultural reality aptly illustrates the contrast between the unrighteous and the righteous. Today’s text highlights this contrast in a most graphic way.

DCLM Daily Manna 23 February 2018 Devotional by Pastor W.F. Kumuyi – Planted to Flourish

The ungodly are very much like weeds. They may spring up as rapidly as grass and flourish outwardly like summer flower, but “it is that they shall be destroyed forever.” In contrast, “The righteous shall flourish like the palm tree: he shall grow like a cedar in Lebanon.” The righteous may not attain the rapid growth of weeds but he grows gracefully, steadily and enduringly towards God like the palm tree. Like the cedar, they are stable, incorruptible and fruitful. The righteous is God’s tree planted on the best of soils – the house of the Lord – where he is nurtured on His rich counsel, care and comfort. No wonder he continues to bear fruit even in old age.

DCLM Daily Manna 23 February 2018 Devotional by Pastor W.F. Kumuyi – Planted to Flourish

Are you a weed or plant? On what soil is your life planted? Are you rooted in the vanities and wickedness of this world or in the rich soil of God’s grace and fellowship? If you are not yet planted on this rich soil of grace, get that done through repentance and faith in Christ. And if you are already “planted,” consecrate to God for more growth and fruitfulness.

Thought for the day: It doesn’t matter where else you flourish if it is not in the house of God.
Bible Reading in one Year: Numbers 1-2

Seeds of Destiny 27th September 2018 – The Holy Spirit: The Sponsor of Righteousness

SOD THURSDAY 27TH SEPTEMBER, 2018

SCRIPTURE: Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven. Mathew 5:14-16

THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: The Holy Ghost is the secret of upright living.

Character is of capital value in life and destiny. One’s character determines the degree of influence one can command in one’s generation.

A Christian is meant to be a standard bearer, a road pointer, or a pace-setter for his or her generation. We were designed by God to show the rest of the world how to live. We are meant to colonize the world in excellence by our standards. The reason why our world is degenerating today is because most Christians do not operate by set Divine standards. Seeds of Destiny 27th September 2018

Now, it is very important to know that the Holy Ghost is the secret of upright living. The question is, how does the Holy Spirit help us to maintain an upright character in a degenerating world?

The Holy Ghost is the sponsor of righteousness (Romans 14:17). The Holy Ghost gives you peace, and supplies you joy and righteousness. Seeds of Destiny 27th September 2018

So, anyone who knows how to fellowship with the Holy Spirit by praying in tongues abundantly is a person whose character will be continuously moulded, enhanced and refined.
The Holy Spirit opens our eyes to insights from Scripture that can kill any unholy nature in us.

The Holy Spirit is the Spirit of liberty and transformation (2 Corinthians 3:17). That is, where the Spirit of the Lord is, you are not permitted to be bound by sin. Where the Spirit of the Lord is, the bondage of sin is broken.

By the power of the Holy Ghost, I decree that the siege of every negative habit over your life is broken in Jesus’ Name.

Remember this: The Holy Ghost is the secret of upright living.

ASSIGNMENTS Seeds of Destiny 27th September 2018:
1. Pray in the Holy Ghost abundantly and consistently.
2. Avoid anything that will defile your conscience.

Seeds of Destiny 26th September 2018 – The Power that enforces change by Pastor Paul Enenche

SOD WEDNESDAY 26TH SEPTEMBER, 2018

SCRIPTURE: And Jabez called on the God of Israel, saying, Oh that thou wouldest bless me indeed, and enlarge my coast, and that thine hand might be with me, and that thou wouldest keep me from evil, that it may not grieve me! And God granted him that which he requested. 1 Chronicles 4:10

THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: What you do not resist will persist.

It has been established that change, like every other phenomenon, is brought about by force. There is a force behind every change; nothing changes on its own. Every change experienced in life is powered by a force. Situations change when people decide to enforce a change. Seeds of Destiny 26th September 2018 – The Power that enforces change

That is why Jabez, from our anchor Scripture, did not just sit down and wait for things to change in his life. His life and situation could not have changed if he did nothing about them.
I once heard God’s servant, Bishop David Oyedepo say, ‘What you don’t want, you don’t watch.’ I can imagine Jabez say, ‘I don’t want this miserable life and I will not continue to watch it. I want the situations of my life to change so I have to go to God and place a demand for a drastic change.’

Seeds of Destiny 26th September 2018 – The Power that enforces change

Please note this: what you do not resist will persist; whatever you do not resist will remain.

What Jabez did was what Jacob also decided to do. When Jacob saw the situation of his life, he decided to pray about it. He also determined to fight it out (Genesis 32:24). Seeds of Destiny 26th September 2018

Beloved, you need a fighter spirit to change your destiny. Destiny changes when responsibility for change is accepted. When you make up your mind for change to occur, when you make up your mind to pray about it, then the change must happen.

Remember this: What you do not resist will persist.

ASSIGNMENT(S):
1. Accept the responsibility of effecting changes in the relevant areas of your life.
2. Take your burdens to the Lord in prayer.
3. Never quit the fight for your fulfilment in life and destiny.

FOR FURTHER UNDERSTANDING, GET THIS MESSAGE: THE PRAYER OF JABEZ 1

PRAYER: Lord, I cast my cares upon You. I refuse to be established in the status quo. Cause things to turn around in my favour, Lord in Jesus’ Name.
