Read: Romans 8:14-17 (KJV)

14 For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, they are the sons of God.
15 For ye have not received the spirit of bondage again to fear; but ye have received the Spirit of adoption, whereby we cry, Abba, Father.
16 The Spirit itself beareth witness with our spirit, that we are the children of God:

Message: Open Heaven 16 April 2018
There are many names used to describe God in the Holy Scriptures. While all His names are important in many ways, the name “Abba” is one of the most significant names of God in understanding how He relates with mankind. The word Abba is an Aramaic word that means “Daddy” in common parlance. It is a loving name that young children use to address their father. This name shows the intimate relationship that exists between father and child, and it conveys the absolute trust children have in their fathers.

Open Heavens 16 April 2018 Daily Devotional – ABBA FATHER

It is important to recognise that although all those who believe in the Almighty can call Him God, not all of them can call Him Abba. Who then can refer to the Almighty as Abba? Only those who have the boldness to call Him “Daddy”. These are people who believe in Jesus, the Son of the Living God, and in the work of atonement He has accomplished for all mankind (John 1:12-13). Galatians 4:6 says,

“And because ye are sons, God hath sent forth the Spirit of his Son into your hearts, crying, Abba, Father.”

Furthermore, only those who honour God as a child honours his or her daddy can call the Almighty Abba. Malachi 1:6a says,

“A son honoureth his father, and a servant his master: if then I be a father, where is mine honour?”

RCCG Open Heaven 16 April 2018 Daily Devotional By Pastor E. A. Adeboye – Abba Father

Your attitude towards God as a Father will determine whether you can call Him Abba, because Abba is an appellation that confirms your intimate relationship with the Almighty. You may want to ask: How can I honour God as Abba? You honour Him by keeping His commandments. Some so-called children of God erroneously believe that grace means lawlessness. They couldn’t be further from the truth (Romans 6:1-2)! There are many blessings we receive when we are true children of the Great Abba. In Genesis 17:1, Abba Father declared Himself as the Almighty God. Read: Sunday Open Heaven 15 April 2018 – Touch Not My Anointed

Because He is almighty, He grants His children their requests and daily loads them with blessings (Psalm 3:4, Psalm 68:19). Beloved, do you belong to this loving Daddy? I congratulate you if your attitude towards Him is that of total disregard for His person or blatant disobedience to His commandments, then you need to change your ways today. You stand to lose a whole lot if you don’t have God as your Father.

Prayer point: Open Heavens 16 April 2018
Abba, Father, transform my attitude towards You and draw me close to You in Jesus’ Name.

Open Heavens 16 April 2018 Daily Devotional Messages was written by Pastor E.A. Adeboye, the General Overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God, one of the largest evangelical Church in the world and also the President of Christ the Redeemer’s Ministries.

Sing Hymn 15 – NEARER MY GOD TO THEE
  1. Nearer, my God, to Thee,
    Nearer to Thee;
    E’ en though it be a cross
    That raiseth me,
    Still all my song shall be
    Nearer, my God, to Thee,
    Nearer, my God, to Thee,
    Nearer to Thee.

2. Though, like a wanderer
The sun gone down,
Darkness comes over me,
My rest a stone;
Yet in my dreams I’d be
Nearer, my God, to Thee
Nearer, my God, to Thee
Nearer to Thee.

3. There let me see the sight,
An open heaven;
All that thou sendest me,
In mercy given;
Angles to beckon me
Nearer, my God, to Thee
Nearer, my God, to Thee
Nearer to Thee

4. Then, with my walking thoughts
Bright with Thy praise,
Out of my stony griefs
Bethel I’ll raise,
So by my woes to be
Nearer, my God, to Thee,
Nearer, my God, to Thee,
Nearer to Thee

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.

FOR FURTHER UNDERSTANDING, GET THIS MESSAGE: THE FUEL OF CHARACTER (PART 2)

PRAYER: O LORD, fill me with the Power of the Holy Spirit. Help me to maintain a positive character and make me a standard bearer in my generation, Lord, in Jesus’ Name.

QUOTE: The strength of your destiny is affected by the strength of your character. Culled from WHO ARE YOU? by Dr Paul Enenche.

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

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.

QUOTE: The reason why it bothers you is because you have been packaged to handle it! Culled from GO IN THIS THY MIGHT by Dr Paul Enenche.

DAILY READING: Isaiah 48:12 to 50:11, Ephesians 4:17 to 32, Psalm 69:1 to 18, Proverbs 24:5 to 6.
