The Dunamis Power of God by Deborah Waldron Fry
I saw a Believer and all around him was what looked and sounded like crackling electricity and I heard it was the "Air of Expectancy; the Dunamis Power of God."

"Beloved. Expect miracles to happen. You no longer walk in the flesh, but in the Spirit. I have chosen you. I have made known to you the glorious riches of My Mysteries, which is Christ in you, the hope of GLORY. As you walk in faith, the very atmosphere of heaven invades your space. You carry My Presence. My Spirit dwells in your heart. My Child, this Holy Potential Energy within you is always ready to be released. I have positioned you right where you need to be for such a time as this. I will show you HOW GREAT this Treasure within you is.

Just ask, Dear One. Be in a constant state of expectancy that something GOOD is about to happen. I am GOOD and there is no darkness in Me. My plans for you are always for GOOD and not for evil. I have anointed you to lay hands on the sick, to cast out demons, to open blind eyes, and to raise the dead. This Dunamis power, My Power, is in your hands. I am the Vine, you are the branches. Draw upon Me, My Child, for My Supply is unlimited and never ending. All of creation waits in eager expectation for My sons and daughters to be revealed. I baptize you with Fire. I am blowing upon the embers. You shall be like an electrical storm in the midst of the darkness, Beloved. Arise and shine in the Power of My Shekinah Glory, release the very Zoe LIFE of your God!

AIR OF EXPECTANCY:The state of thinking or hoping that something, especially something good, will happen.
POTENTIAL ENERGY: the energy possessed by a body by virtue of its position relative to another. Stored energy; electric charge.

SHEKINAH GLORY:the visible manifestation of the Presence of God.
DUNAMIS: Greek:Strong's 1411:INHERENT power, power residing in a thing by virtue of its nature, or which a person or thing exerts and puts forth; Power for performing miracles. Strength, power, ability.

...2 Corinthians 4:7 Now we have this treasure in earthen vessels, that the surpassing greatness of the power is from God, and not of us,
...Romans 8:18 I consider that our present sufferings are not comparable to the GLORY that will be revealed in us. 19The creation waits in eager EXPECTATION for the revelation of the sons of God.
...Colossians 1:26the mystery that was hidden for ages and generations but is now revealed to His saints. 27to whom God has chosen to make known among the Gentiles the glorious riches of this mystery, which is Christ in you, the hope of glory.

A Bouquet of Flowers by Tammy Lang Jensen
As I met Jesus in the garden, he handed me a bouquet of flowers. As I looked at them, I realized they were constantly changing in my hand. 

One minute they were jasmine, then irises, then orchids. I asked Jesus,”Why is the bouquet changing every couple of minutes?”

He said, because I know you love many flowers, not just one and my heart desire is that your life would be full of the things you love. But then he showed me something, with a lesson in it. We were in a lush green valley standing in the middle of the most magnificent herd of horses you have ever seen. I immediately started looking at all the horses thinking of names, daydreaming of my vision for a ranch. Before long, I realized I was no longer talking with Jesus. I was enamored with the blessing and all I needed to do.

Did you know the enemy can bless you right out of your relationship with Jesus? Again I tell you, it is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle, then for someone who is rich to enter the kingdom of God (Matthew 19:24). This is a gentle nudge to keep your eyes fixed on Jesus and not on his hand. As long as your heart is buried in your savior you can never go wrong....

Excellence Requires Discipline by Pastor Chris Oyakhilome
Seest thou a man diligent in his business? he shall stand before kings; he shall not stand before mean men (Proverbs 22:29).

When it comes to the quality of your work, it’s either what you do is excellent or it’s lackluster. As a child of God, whatever you do, wherever you work, make up your mind to be excellent, because you’re of an excellent spirit. Tell yourself, “If it’s not excellent, I’m not done.”

Everything you do and are involved with must be the best, because you’re a child of the best. Don’t settle for average. To be excellent, you’ve got to practise it. If you’re a structural engineer, for example, don’t construct mediocre structures; structures that can’t, and wouldn’t stand the test. Go all out to apply the right engineering principles and technology to build quality design and construction. Refuse to cut corners; use only the best materials.

Carry out detailed research on your work, on the right tools and materials you need to make you the best and the preferred amongst many other great options. Distinguish yourself as someone with an excellent spirit. The Bible says concerning Daniel, “…an excellent spirit was in him; and the king thought to set him over the whole realm” (Daniel 6:3).

Yes. Excellence makes you a leader, but it requires discipline. The Bible says, “And every man that striveth for the mastery is temperate in all things…” (1 Corinthians 9:25). The word, “temperate” means discipline, to have self-control. 1 Corinthians 9:27, “But I keep under my body, and bring it into subjection….” Again, this refers to discipline; subjecting yourself to the right and necessary trainings, and sometimes rigours, in order to be the best at what you do.

There’s excellence in your spirit, and it’ll manifest in all you do as you carry out your assignments with a lot more diligence.

CONFESSION
I have an excellent spirit, and I produce excellent results in all I do. The Holy Spirit is at work in me, both to will and to deliver excellence, in accordance with His perfect will. I’m a success, because I function with the wisdom of Christ and His superabundant grace. Glory to God!

Memorise: He raiseth up the poor out of the dust, and lifteth up the beggar from the dunghill, to set them among princes, and to make them inherit the throne of glory: for the pillars of the earth are the LORD’S, and he hath set the world upon them. 1st Samuel 2:8

Read: Genesis 41:39-46 (KJV)

39 And Pharaoh said unto Joseph, Forasmuch as God hath shewed thee all this, there is none so discreet and wise as thou art:
40 Thou shalt be over my house, and according unto thy word shall all my people be ruled: only in the throne will I be greater than thou.
41 And Pharaoh said unto Joseph, See, I have set thee over all the land of Egypt.
42 And Pharaoh took off his ring from his hand, and put it upon Joseph's hand, and arrayed him in vestures of fine linen, and put a gold chain about his neck;
43 And he made him to ride in the second chariot which he had; and they cried before him, Bow the knee: and he made him ruler over all the land of Egypt.
44 And Pharaoh said unto Joseph, I am Pharaoh, and without thee shall no man lift up his hand or foot in all the land of Egypt.
45 And Pharaoh called Joseph's name Zaphnathpaaneah; and he gave him to wife Asenath the daughter of Potipherah priest of On. And Joseph went out over all the land of Egypt.
46 And Joseph was thirty years old when he stood before Pharaoh king of Egypt. And Joseph went out from the presence of Pharaoh, and went throughout all the land of Egypt.

Message:
As observed by the Preacher in Ecclesiastes 1:9, some life events are capable of repeating themselves in history.

One of these is the rags-to-riches story described in today’s Bible reading. Joseph had been sold into slavery in Egypt by his brothers, and as if that was no enough, he was also framed and cast into prison, where he remained for some years until God’s favour rose over his destiny and took him to the throne as second-in-command of the largest empire on earth, even though he was a stranger there. The familiar story has some hidden lessons we can learn. First of all, God will do whatever He has purposed in His heart to do, regardless of any obstacles on the way. Although Joseph was destined to be great, his brothers thought they could abort God’s plan for his life by selling him to slavery. They could never have imagined that they were actually sending him to the place where his dreams of greatness would be fulfilled. Likewise, when Potiphar’s wife framed him, little did she know she was only acting as an instrument to bring about the fulfilment of God’s plan for him. In fact, Pharaoh’s butler could been reinstated without him dreaming about it. God however made him dream about it so that Joseph could be known, and his gift of interpreting dreams could be used to save lives (Genesis 50:18-20).

Beloved, are you passing through the furnace of envy and jealousy of those you consider to be your brethren? Joseph’s experience can be repeated in your life. All you need to do is keep your focus on where God is taking you to. Joseph was focused and that was why he achieved his purpose in life. Some people give up on their dreams in the face of adversity. This is not right, because Proverbs 24:10 says:

“If thou faint in the day of adversity, thy strength is small.”

Are you in the prison of despondency and uncertainty? I prophesy into your life today that you will ascend from that prison to the throne of joy and glory in Jesus’ Name. Those looking down on you shall begin to look up to you, and you will fulfil your destiny in Jesus’ Name. For you to fulfil your destiny gloriously, you need to align yourself with the Author of your destiny: Jesus Christ is His Name. That destiny which Satan, sin and the wicked people of this world have battered shall be restored, and today shall be your day of coronation in Jesus’ Name. Congratulations!

Prayer Point
Father, please take me to the place where Your purpose for my life will be fulfilled in Jesus’ Name.

God Wants You Well by Kenneth Copeland
If thou wilt diligently hearken to the voice of the Lord thy God, and wilt do that which is right in his sight, and wilt give ear to his commandments, and keep all his statutes, I will put none of these diseases upon thee, which I have brought upon the Egyptians: for I am the Lord that healeth thee.

Exodus 15:26

Has the devil ever tried to put you under condemnation by telling you that it’s contrary to the principles of faith to use doctors and medicine when you need healing? If so, here are some encouraging words that I believe will help you put your heart at rest.

It is God’s will to heal you. That’s the first and most important thing for you to understand. If your faith is strong and you can believe the Word without wavering (regardless of what circumstances or symptoms come against you), then you’ll be able to receive that healing by faith alone.

But that kind of faith takes more than just hearing a few sermons about healing. It takes a deep personal revelation of God’s healing power. So, if you haven’t yet developed that kind of faith, the doctor is your best friend.

If you’re not certain whether your faith is strong enough or whether you need a doctor’s help, follow the instructions of the Apostle Paul (Colossians 3:15) and let peace be your umpire.

If fear rises up within you when you think about doing without medical help, then go to a doctor. And go in faith! On the other hand, if you have a sure confidence within you that healing is yours strictly by faith, let your faith do its work and receive your healing directly. Whether or not you go to the doctor is not the issue. It is what you do with your faith.

Either way, you can rejoice knowing God is working with you, meeting you at the level of your faith. Thank God for your healing—however it comes!—and do not let Satan put you under condemnation. It is none of his business!

Deuteronomy 7:8-15

A Sacred Institution by Billy Graham
Follow after the things which make for peace, and things wherewith one may edify another.
—Romans 14:19

The home is basically a sacred institution. The perfect marriage is the uniting of three persons—a man and a woman and God. This is what makes marriage holy. Faith in Christ is the most important of all principles in the building of a happy marriage and a successful home. The secret strength of a nation is found in the faith that abides in the hearts and homes of the country.

A strong marriage starts with God at the center.

Prayer for the day
May we so love one another, through You, Lord Jesus--that our homes will be reflections of the glory of Your inestimable love.

How Will Your Decision Affect Others? by Rick Warren
“Each of us will give an account of himself to God. So don’t criticize each other anymore. Try instead to live in such a way that you will never make your brother stumble by letting him see you doing something that he thinks is wrong” (Romans 14:12-13 TLB).

One of the biggest mistakes we make in life is forgetting how much our actions influence the people around us. Every day you are tempted to make decisions that may seem best for you but could have a devastating effect on the people around you. If you want to make wise decisions, you need to ask, “Will my choice harm other people?”

That’s the opposite of our culture. Our society teaches us to think only of ourselves. But God wants you to think about others, not just yourself. In fact, the Bible says that one day you’re going to be judged by God on how your decisions affected other people.

Romans 14:12-13 says, “Each of us will give an account of himself to God. So don’t criticize each other anymore. Try instead to live in such a way that you will never make your brother stumble by letting him see you doing something that he thinks is wrong” (TLB).

You may not like hearing this, but you are being watched—all the time. If you’re a parent, you should be especially aware that little eyes are always observing. You’ve got to be careful about what you say and do because you’re influencing not just your life but the next generation as well.

Show respect for authority. If a police officer pulls you over for a ticket, even if you think he’s wrong, you treat him with respect.

Don’t call in sick when your family is actually going to the beach for the day.

Don’t bring supplies home that you stole from the office to use for personal benefit.

Don’t cheat on your taxes—and then brag in front of your kids about all the ways you’re ripping off Uncle Sam.

Don’t watch the awful stuff that’s on TV and in the movies with your kids. Think about whether you should be watching it at all.

Mature people limit their freedom for the benefit of others. Not because you’re afraid of what other people think, but because you’re motivated by love. In situations where there is no clear right or wrong, you have to ask yourself, “How will my decision affect other people?”

Talk It Over

How does pride affect your ability to clearly consider how your choices affect other people?
Does it matter if the other person thinks what you’re doing is wrong even if you think it’s right? Why or why not?
Practically speaking, what does it look like to limit your freedom for the benefit of others?
