OPEN HEAVENS 14 MARCH 2018 DAILY DEVOTIONAL BY PASTOR E.A ADEBOYE

Topic: Enjoying The Divine Presence? [Open Heavens 14 March 2018]

Memorise: “And Elijah said, As the LORD of hosts liveth, before whom I stand, I will surely shew myself unto him to day.” – 1 Kings 18:15

Read: Hebrews 12:18-24 (KJV)

18 For ye are not come unto the mount that might be touched, and that burned with fire, nor unto blackness, and darkness, and tempest,

19 And the sound of a trumpet, and the voice of words; which voice they that heard intreated that the word should not be spoken to them any more:

20 (For they could not endure that which was commanded, And if so much as a beast touch the mountain, it shall be stoned, or thrust through with a dart:

21 And so terrible was the sight, that Moses said, I exceedingly fear and quake:)

22 But ye are come unto mount Sion, and unto the city of the living God, the heavenly Jerusalem, and to an innumerable company of angels,

23 To the general assembly and church of the firstborn, which are written in heaven, and to God the Judge of all, and to the spirits of just men made perfect,

24 And to Jesus the mediator of the new covenant, and to the blood of sprinkling, that speaketh better things than that of Abel.

Bible in One Year: Number 28-29, 2 Corinthians 11:1-15

MESSAGE: “The Divine Presence” is a term commonly used among Christians to describe the apparent presence of the Almighty God. In the Bible, we see instances of the divine presence associated with different manifestations. Some of these manifestations occurred with bright lights, fire, heavy vibrations, visible glory, whirlwinds, loud trumpet sounds and even great silence. There were also instances of divine presence without any manifestation. The Bible speaks of the presence of God in a remarkable number of ways, and the manifestation of His presence to His children comes with the assurance of peace and security, victory in battle, unmerited favor, miraculous deliverance, divine support, healing, unusual success and breakthrough. I pray that from this day onward, God will overshadow your life with His presence in Jesus Name.

The presence of God finds its greatest expression in the person of Jesus Christ. Colossians 2:9 says,

“For in him dwelleth all the fulness of the Godhead bodily.”

Apart from the work of salvation which He came to accomplish, Jesus also came into the world to perfectly demonstrate the nature and character of God, and to experience our pains, suffering and limitations as human beings (John 14:8-11, Hebrews 2:16-17). Through His works, He showed us the significance and benefits of enjoying the presence of the Almighty God. Just as God paid attention to the suffering of His people in Egypt and stepped in to deliver them at the right time, He is fully aware of your situation, and He is highly interested in helping you out. God will step into your situation today and turn your life around for good in Jesus’ Name. Jesus has broken down the wall of separation between God and humanity (Ephesians 2:14-16). We therefore have open access to the presence of God to enjoy salvation, abundant life, peace, joy, healing, deliverance, victory and all-round success in this world. More importantly, we also have access to the straight and narrow way that leads to heaven. Are you enjoying God’s Divine presence through Jesus Christ? If you are not, you are missing out on a lot of great things. Give your life to Christ, and the Holy Spirit will flood your life with the manifest presence of God. You will then have a taste of His wonderful presence as described in today’s Bible reading. If you are saved, begin to fellowship with the Holy Spirit, and He will manifest more of Jesus, who is the embodiment of the divine presence, to you. I pray that God will manifest Himself in your life so much that you will begin to tell your personal testimony all over the world in Jesus’ Name.

Prayer Point: Father, please show me Your presence in Jesus’.

Hymn 2: I Need Thee, Oh, I Need Thee.

1. I need Thee every hour, most gracious Lord;
No tender voice like Thine can peace afford.

Chorus:
I need Thee, oh, I need Thee;
Every hour I need Thee;
Oh, bless me now, my Savior,
I come to Thee.

2. I need Thee every hour, stay Thou nearby;
Temptations lose their power when Thou art nigh.

3. I need Thee every hour, in joy or pain;
Come quickly and abide, or life is vain.

4. I need Thee every hour; teach me Thy will;
And Thy rich promises in me fulfill.

5. I need Thee every hour, most Holy One;
Oh, make me Thine indeed, Thou blessed Son.

DCLM Daily Manna Devotional 25 September 2018 - Prayer, The Master Key

DCLM Daily Manna Devotional 25 September 2018 – Prayer, The Master Key by Pastor Kumuyi

Topic: Prayer, The Master Key

Key Verse: “Hitherto have ye asked nothing in my name: ask, and ye shall receive, that your joy may be full“ (John 16:24)

MESSAGE: DCLM Daily Manna Devotional 25 September 2018

The Bible says a lot about prayers and people who prayed. Abraham prayed and so did Jacob. Many people prayed in the Bible and they received answers to their prayers. The Bible even detailed notable prayers like that of Solomon at the dedication of the temple or the quick one that David prayed to God to turn the counsel of Ahitophel to foolishness. Women, like Hannah, prayed too and received miracle children. Even unbelievers like the sailors in Jonah’s day knew how to pray. Prayer is the believer’s heart-cry to the Almighty.

Jesus also prayed. The passage above shows us the master key Jesus gave His disciples. Four times, He told them to ask again and again from the Father so that their joy would be full. He then took them to the school of prayer. He lectured them on the why, what and how of prayer. Prayer must be in His name to be answered. He also taught them to be steadfast in prayer. The world is evil and troublous times are inescapable for the saints. But when such times come, we should pray because He has overcome for us already.

DCLM Daily Manna Devotional 25 September 2018 – Prayer, The Master Key by Pastor Kumuyi

The Church needs the master key of prayer today more than any other time. The key will open any door for the Church, families and the individual. Societal pressures are snuffing prayer times out of the daily schedules of many people. But how can you open doors of success if you abandon the passkey? There is an urgent call to prayer today for all and sundry. You must join them and use the key to make yourself relevant in time and eternity by opening every door blocking your progress. Remember God heareth not the sinners. He desires that sinners first pray for their salvation before He begins to add other blessings to them.

Thought For The Day: Prayer is the master key that opens all locked doors.

Memorize: I am the vine, ye are the branches: He that abideth in me, and I in him, the same bringeth forth much fruit: for without me ye can do nothing. – John 15:5

Abiding in Jesus isn’t something that comes automatically to any believer. It’s a lifestyle that involves discipline and effort.

We have to choose to give ourselves to our union with Him, to give Him first place where our attention is concerned. If we want to grow spiritually, if we want to walk in power and in fellowship with the Lord, we’ll have to spend the time it takes to know Him.

Kenneth Copeland Daily Devotional 25th September 2018 – Move Closer Every Day

That’s not something we can do for a while and then forget about either. We must continue in it every day. For the moment we stop moving closer to Jesus, we always start drifting away.

You see, here in this natural world you’re surrounded by ungodliness. You live in a body that is totally natural. Unless you purposely counter that with daily prayer and time in the Word, your body and your mind will simply give in to the pressures around you and go the way of the world. Kenneth Copeland Daily Devotional 25th September 2018 Kenneth Copeland Daily Devotional 25th September 2018

Right now, make a decision to give yourself to the things of God. Focus your attention on the Lord. Surround yourself with His Word. Listen to preaching and teaching tapes while you’re getting dressed, driving to work, preparing dinner, working on your car, exercising, cleaning house and when you go to bed. Listen to the Word of God anytime, anywhere! Kenneth Copeland Daily Devotional

Abide in Him today.

John 15:1-11
