Never Lose Your Cool by Pastor Chris Oyakhilome
Bless them that curse you, and pray for them which despitefully use you (Luke 6:28).

Never find yourself offended or losing your cool over the attitude of others towards you. It makes no difference if they mistreat you or take undue advantage of you; maintain the right attitude of love. Someone else’s bad attitude should never change your good behaviour. If anyone has a bad attitude, that’s their problem, but your responsibility is to walk in love towards all.

 Some people make “new year resolutions,” part of which is a list of people whom they claim offended them, perhaps, in the previous year, and have decided never to talk to them or relate with them anymore. This is wrong. There shouldn’t ever be people or someone you don’t like or decide never to talk to, irrespective of what they may have done to you. The Word tells us to seek peace and pursue it (1 Peter 3:11).

God never promised that we’ll be well treated by everybody. You may not be treated right; you may not be treated the way you want or think you deserve to be treated; that’s not what’s important! What’s important is your response in whatever circumstances you find yourself; that’s where the blessing really is. If you respond negatively, because someone treated you badly, you’ll get in trouble with the Lord.

 Read the Master’s statement in our opening verse; He said, “Bless them that curse you, and pray for them which despitefully use you” (Luke 6:28). Emulate Jesus. He wasn’t vengeful at the wicked men who crucified Him, though the pain was real, and He felt it. They spat at Him. He asked for water, they gave Him vinegar to drink. Think about how they mistreated Jesus; yet, He said, “...Father, forgive them; for they know not what they do…” (Luke 23:34). Keep walking in love. Let that be something you’ve decided to do this year more than ever before.

Always remember that, irrespective of how you’re treated, you can never be disadvantaged. Romans 8:28 says, “… all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose.” If you’d live and act according to the Word, you’ll continually walk in blessings, and nothing would truncate your joy or dissipate your faith and progress in the Lord.

CONFESSION
I walk in love towards all. I express love and goodwill towards all, thus invoking the blessings of peace and salvation upon them, in Jesus’ Name. Amen.

Open Heavens: Our Heavenly Father by Pastor E.A Adeboye
Saturday January 19th 2019
Memorise: Beloved, now are we the sons of God, and it doth not yet appear what we shall be: but we know that, when he shall appear, we shall appear, we shall be like him; for we shall see him as he is. 1st John 3:2

Read: Matthew 6:9-13 (KJV)
9 After this manner therefore pray ye: Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name.
10 Thy kingdom come, Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven.
11 Give us this day our daily bread.
12 And forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors.
13 And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil: For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, for ever. Amen.

Mark 9,
Isaiah 16:12-17:14,

Hymnal:
Sing hymn 9

Message:
The prayer outlined in today’s Bible text, popularly called “The Lord’s Prayer”, is of great value to us as believers.

Through it, our Lord Jesus Christ introduced God to us as our Heavenly Father (Matthew 6:9). In so doing, He used the known to teach us about the unknown. Everyone is familiar with the relationship that exists between a father and his child. Our Lord used this prayer to open our eyes to the nature of the relationship that exists between God and us after we become born again. I came to understand this truth when I gave my life to Christ. I therefore began to call my Heavenly Father “Daddy”, because I knew He surpasses all earthly fathers. This same sentiment is present in the writings of John the Beloved. Carefully meditate on what he wrote in 1st John 3:1-2:

“Behold, what manner of love the Father hath bestowed upon us, that we should be called the sons of God: therefore the world knoweth us not, because it knew him not. Beloved, now are we the sons of God, and it doth not yet appear what we shall be: but we know that, when he shall appear, we shall be like him; for we shall see him as he is.”

It is indeed amazing to be called children of God. If you are wondering how a mortal being can become a child of the immortal and Eternal God, I refer It is indeed amazing to be called children of God. If you are wondering how a mortal being can become a child of the immortal and Eternal God, I refer you to John 1:11-12, which says:

“He came unto his own, and his own received him not. But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name.

Jesus Christ revealed the secret behind this mystery to Nicodemus in John 3:5-6, where He said:

“….Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born of water and of the Spirit, he cannot enter into the kingdom of God. That which is born of the flesh is flesh; and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit.”

God is Spirit, and once you are born of the Spirit by giving your life of Christ, you become a child of the Spirit and a spiritual being. Having received this endowment, there is an obligation that follows it. 1st John 3:3 tells us what this obligation is:


“And every man that hath this hope in him purifieth himself, even as he is pure.”

Purity makes us resemble our Heavenly Father, and it is a compulsory virtue for us to manifest. The good news is that when you are empowered to God to become His child, He also implants His seed into you to enable you live like Him in this wicked world. The Holy Spirit tells us in 1st John 3:9:

“Whosoever is born of God doth not commit sin; for his seed remaineth in him: and he cannot sin, because his is born of God.”

A glorious transformation occurs in us when we become born again! Believe in this transformation and determine to exhibit its character by faith.

Action point
Outline the transformation that occurs in a life that is born again and weigh yourself against it. Apply your faith as areas where you are not yet manifesting who you really are.

The Joy of Knowing by Billy Graham
Happy is he . . . whose hope is in the Lord his God.
—Psalm 146:5

Happy is the man who has learned the secret of coming to God in daily prayer. Fifteen minutes alone with God every morning before you start the day can change circumstances and remove mountains! But all of this happiness and all of these unlimited benefits which flow from the storehouse of heaven are contingent upon our relationship to God. Absolute dependency and absolute yieldedness are the conditions of being His child. Only His children are entitled to receive those things that lend themselves to happiness; and in order to be His child, there must be the surrender of the will to Him. Man does not come to know God through works—he comes to know God by faith, through grace. You cannot work your way toward happiness and heaven, you cannot moralize your way, you cannot reform your way, you cannot buy your way. It comes as a gift of God through Christ.

Read more about living daily with God.

Prayer for the day
Thank You, heavenly Father, for the gift of joy which comes from knowing Your Son, Jesus Christ.

From Messes to Miracles by Kenneth Copeland
A fool's mouth is his destruction, and his lips are the snare of his soul.

Proverbs 18:7

We have what we say. As believers, we know that's a vital biblical truth. We can see it in Mark 11:23, Matthew 21:21, James 3:2 and many other verses. Yet we often let it slip.

We allow ourselves to begin talking like the world instead of talking the Word. And eventually we get what we've been asking for—a big mess.

If that's happened to you, remember, whatever you have in your life is a product of what you've been saying. In order to change what you have, you must change what's coming out of your mouth. To head your life in a different direction—from death to life, sickness to health, failure to success—you must take charge of your words.

That's a lot easier said than done. But that's the key: It must be said in order to be done!

How do you start?

First, realize that it can't be done just in the natural. This is a spiritual law, so it must be handled with spiritual power.

James 3:7-8 says the tongue can't be tamed with the same power with which man tames animals. It takes God's wisdom from above. God's Word is His wisdom (Proverbs 2:6). He also said His words are spirit and life. That means it takes God's words to tame our tongues.

Second, repent before God for ever allowing your tongue to be used by anyone except the Holy Spirit. Then give Jesus your tongue. Be determined to speak His words of love, faith, joy, peace and grace. Words of faith stop the fiery darts of hell.

The third thing to do is what Jesus said in Mark 4:24: Take heed, or listen, to what you hear. Listen to yourself! Think, Do I want what I just said to come to pass? If the answer is no, then stop and correct yourself right then. Replace those negative words with praise (Ephesians 5:4).

If you've gotten sloppy about what you say, change your course today by changing your words. Ask God to help you set a watch over your mouth (Psalms 141:3). Put the power that's in your tongue to work for you instead of against you. Stop using it to make messes, and start using it to make miracles. There is a miracle in your mouth!

Scripture Reading:
James 3:1-13

A Pine Tree by Tammy Lang Jensen
The Lord showed me a hand this morning peeling the bark from a Pine tree. He said, “What happens to the tree if the bark is peeled away?”

When a tree has been damaged by removing a ring a bark, the tree might die depending on how completely it was removed. The reason for damage is the phloem layer of tissue just below the bark is responsible for carrying food produced in the leaves by photosynthesis to the roots of the tree.

And just as the Lord‘s word in you produces fruit. If the world strips it out of you day after day, what the Lord has been growing will surely die. You have been called to be the first fruits, the produce of His labor. Unless the Lord builds the house, the builders labor in vain. Unless the Lord watches over the city, the guards stand watch in vain (Psalm 127:1). I am the vine; you are the branches. If you abide in me and I in you, you will bear much fruit; apart from me you can do nothing (John 15:5). I am the way-maker, the vinedresser, away from me nothing lives. I am the protective bark that covers you.

I protect you from the wind, the storms and the words spoken against you. No weapon formed against you shall prosper, and every tongue which rises against you in judgment you shall condemn. This is the heritage of the servants of the Lord. And their righteousness is from me, says the Lord (Isaiah 54:17). I create the fruit of the lips; peace, peace to him that is far off, and to him that is near, saith the Lord; and I will heal him (Isaiah 57:19). The Lord promises peace and healing if we are doing things his way.

My ways are sweeter than honey, taste and see that I am good. You are the branch and I am the vine and I will perfect you in all your ways. How sweet are your words to my taste, sweeter than honey to my mouth (Psalm 119:103). I will teach you to love unconditionally, and extend grace and mercy; just as it was extended to you. I will teach you to look with eyes of faith and to speak to those things that be not as though they are. I will teach you to believe in miracles and you will say like the father of the child. “Lord, I believe; help my unbelief!” And you will know all things are possible to those who believe.

And even if you were a tree bear naked without bark. In the twinkling of an eye, the Lord will cover you and restore all that was lost or stolen. Too long has the world taken from my children. I pace over them like a roaring lion. Protector of the universe, protector of my child. No evil will befall you. No evil will befall you, no plague will approach your tent (Psalm 91:10).

By this I know that you are pleased with me, because my enemy does not shout in triumph over me (Psalm 41:11). I am raising a mighty army to purge the land of darkness and they shall not be defeated....WARRIORS ARISE!!!!

Father's DNA by Deborah Waldron Fry
Beloved. Do you know who you are, My Child? You are not who the world says you are. You are not an earth dweller or a victim of your circumstances. 

No, Dear One. You carry the testimony of Jesus. You are a new creation, born from above.

You are in the world, but not of it. You have your Father's DNA. You have passed from death unto life. This is the faith that overcomes the world. Faith that I have saved you to the UTTERMOST; completely, entirely, perfectly, THROUGH ALL TIME. No one can change this, Beloved. You cannot lose your salvation. The old man has died, and the new man has been raised.

The devil would have you live in fear. He would have you live FAR BELOW your heavenly position. You are a joint heir with Jesus Christ. You are ROYALTY. You are in the world, but not of it. I shall help you to SEE this, My Child. This is who I have made you to be. I have crowned you with MY Glory and Honor. It pleased Me to do this, Precious One. Let no man dissuade you with false arguments. As I am, so are you in this world. Dare to believe the Truth of who you are. No longer be tormented by fear. I have PERFECTED you in My Love. Rise up, Beloved of the Lord. The Spirit of Prophecy lives in you.

TO SAVE:SOZO:Strong's Greek 4982: To save, heal, preserve, rescue, deliver, protect
UTTERMOST:Strong's Greek 3838: Complete, entire, perfect, THROUGH ALL TIME.

...Hebrews 7:25 Wherefore He (Jesus) is able also to save them to the UTTERMOST that come unto God by Him, seeing He ever liveth to make intercession for them.

...Revelation 19:10 And I fell at his feet to worship him. And he said unto me, See you do it not: I am your fellowservant, and of your brethren that have the testimony of Jesus: worship God: for the testimony of Jesus is the spirit of prophecy.

...Hebrews 2:3How shall we escape, if we disregard so great a salvation (sozo) which at the first began to be spoken by the Lord, and was confirmed unto us by them that heard Him;

...Psalm 8:4what is man that You are mindful of him, or the son of man that You care for him? 5You made him a little lower than the angels; you crowned him with glory and honor. 6You made him ruler of the works of Your hands; You have placed everything under his feet,

...1 John 4:15Whoever confesses that Jesus is the Son of God, God abides IN Him, and he IN God. 16We have come to know and have believed the love which God has for us. God is love, and the one who abides in love abides in God, and God abides in him. 17By this, love is perfected with us, so that we may have confidence in the day of judgment; because AS HE IS, so also are we in this world. 18There is no fear in love; but perfect love casts out fear, because fear has torment, and the one who fears is not perfected in love.

Make a Plan for Your Money by Rick Warren
“The wise man looks ahead. The fool attempts to fool himself and won’t face facts” (Proverbs 14:8 TLB).

Money is a tool to be used for God’s purposes. We’re not to hoard it. We’re not to stockpile it. We’re not to worship it. We’re to use it! We can use temporary resources—what God has put in our hands—for permanent good.

In Luke 16, Jesus turned the dishonest but shrewd manager into the hero. The manager knew he was going to be fired, so he decided to make some friends by lowering the debts owed to his master.

What did Jesus like about this guy? The man was dishonest, but he did three things right, and those three things reveal lessons that God wants you to learn and apply to your finances.

The manager looked ahead.

Most people never look ahead when it comes to their finances. We’re not saving anything, and that’s not smart.

Proverbs 14:8 says, “The wise man looks ahead. The fool attempts to fool himself and won’t face facts” (TLB).

The manager made a plan.

How do you know if you’ve got a financial plan? It’s really simple: Do you have a budget? A budget is simply planned spending. A budget tells your money where you want it to go rather than wondering where it went. You’ve got to have a plan.

The Bible says in Proverbs 16:9, “We should make plans—counting on God to direct us” (TLB).

The manager acted quickly.

Luke 16:4 says, “I know how to ensure that I’ll have plenty of friends who will give me a home when I am fired” (NLT).

The manager didn’t procrastinate; he didn’t delay. He set his plan in motion. He didn’t say, “Someday I’m going to get my finances in order” or “Someday I’m going to start saving for retirement.”

Jesus didn’t commend the manager’s dishonesty but his attitude, which said, “I’m going to think ahead. I’m going to make a plan. And I’m going to invest in relationships that will benefit others and me in the future.”

That’s smart! And Jesus wants you to do the same when it comes to your finances. Are you spending your treasure here on Earth or looking ahead and storing up treasure in heaven?

Talk It Over

What facts do you need to face up to in your finances?
How do you need to start planning for the future when it comes to your finances? What do you want to accomplish in the future with your money?
How have you procrastinated when it comes to managing your finances and saving for the future? What can you do today to move forward in these areas?

Revive Your Joy by Joel Osteen
All together now—applause for God! Sing songs to the tune of his glory...
Psalm 66:1, MSG

TODAY'S WORD:

There are three simple things you can do each day that will breathe new life into everything you do. First, speak words of faith and victory out loud. As a child of the Most High God, you should have a boldness when you declare, "I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me! My path is getting brighter and brighter." Next, take time to write down the good things that God does for you each day. When you begin to look for His goodness, you will quickly discover that He is working in your life. Finally, be thankful. Take a moment every day to thank the Lord for all He has done for you. When you develop a thankful heart, you are changing your focus from how big your problems are to how big your God is!

PRAYER FOR TODAY:

God, I praise You for your life-changing power and unconditional love. I want to give new life to my relationship with You by keeping a record of blessings and answered prayers and giving thanks for Your work in my life. In Jesus' Name - Amen.

Start with What You Have by Joyce Meyer
Love bears up under anything and everything that comes, is ever ready to believe the best of every person…

— 1 Corinthians 13:7 (AMPC)

We can have good intentions and still be disobedient. Procrastination is very deceptive. We don't see it as disobedience because we intend to obey God; it is just that we are going to do it when—when we have more money, when we are not so busy, as soon as Christmas is over, after we get the kids in school this year, as soon as vacation is over, etc.

There is no point in praying for God to give you more money so you can be a blessing to others if you are not being a blessing with what you already have.

Don't believe Satan's lies that you have nothing to give. Even if it is only a pack of gum or a ballpoint pen, start using what you have to bless others.

Prayer Starter: Father, help me to be a blessing today. Show me ways I can impact someone’s life—even in a small way. Help me to use the resources You have given me to love others and glorify You. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.

Count for Something by John Hagee
2 Corinthians 10:4
For the weapons of our warfare are not [a]carnal but mighty in God for pulling down strongholds

What would happen if you decided right now that you were going to do everything in your power to make today count for something? What if you decided that when you prayed, it wasn’t just going to be another prayer, but it was going to be a prayer that makes a difference? Prayer is your privilege. Prayer is where you get the chance to reach heaven from down here on earth. So when you take the opportunity to come before God, make sure you come boldly and make it a prayer of power.

Use your prayer as a moment to pull down spiritual strongholds and powers and principalities that are set against you. Use it to bind what is coming against you and loose the power of God within you. Use it to shape the destinies of your children. Use it to conquer sickness in your body. Use it to defeat the giants that are standing against you. Use it to move heaven and earth. But whatever you do, when you open your mouth to pray, make it count!

Blessing:

And now may the Lord bless you and keep you. May the Lord make His face to shine upon you be gracious unto you. May the Lord give you the power to make right choices which will shape and sculpt your destiny that God has ordained for you from the foundations of the earth. May your home be as the suburbs of heaven. May your heart be pure toward God and man as He guides you in paths of righteousness and brings to you, your children and your children’s children the unlimited blessings of God. In Jesus’ name we pray and receive this blessing for the righteous, Amen.

Robbing the Body of Christ by Dr. Charles Stanley
FRIDAY
18
1 Corinthians 12:14-21

Every day, you get out of bed, put on clothes, and walk to the kitchen to eat breakfast. You maybe watch the news or check your email, and a few minutes later, you drive to work at 60 miles per hour on a road where other vehicles can pass by within feet. In the first hour or so that you’re awake, your body completes thousands of complex tasks that are so routine they go unnoticed. We hardly even think about them.

Our physical frame is a creation of remarkable beauty and intricacy. And while certain parts seem more attractive than others, all are useful. The body’s interdependent nature—that is, the way the different parts rely on one another to perform properly—is an apt metaphor for a Christ-centered church. When believers use their gifts and talents to operate and depend on each other, the whole body functions properly to the glory of God.

However, many people in church today feel insignificant. Upon seeing the successful work of others, they decide they’re not really needed or assume they haven’t got the “right” talents to make a worthwhile contribution. Those are lies from the devil. When his misguidance succeeds—which is all too often—one more Christian backs away in hopes that someone else will do the Lord’s work.

Hanging back instead of seeking a place to serve is unfair to the congregation, because your unique contribution is integral to the unity of God’s church. Your role might not be center stage, but it is vital to Jesus Christ and to His body on earth.

God Is Waiting On You by Jerry Savelle
January 18, 2019
But those who seek the Lord shall not lack any good thing (Psalm 34:10 NKJV).

When you consistently seek God with your whole heart, it is impossible to lack in anything good thing. To diligently seek and obey God, yet lack in a good thing, means God lied. And it is impossible for God to lie.

So, if you are lacking something in your life, it’s time to evaluate your heart. You may think you are waiting for God to give you good things, but in reality He is waiting for you to seek Him and give yourself to Him with a whole heart. God is eager and willing to give His children every good thing, but it is up to you to qualify for the promise. You have to position yourself to receive it.

Psalm 31:19 NKJV declares, “How abundant are the good things that you have stored up for those who fear you, that you bestow in the sight of all, on those who take refuge in you.” The good things of God remain stored up until you put yourself in a position to receive them. And the only way to get into that position is by seeking God and His will for your life.

When you seek God, He will speak the words you need to hear. He will tell you how to change the way you think about certain matters. He will show how to walk in greater wisdom and success. As you trust in His goodness and walk in obedience, you will move into position to receive the good things that are stored up for you.

So stop waiting on God. He is waiting on you. His goodness is available and ready to be poured out on you if you will seek Him with your whole heart.

Confession: I make the decision today to position myself to receive all of the good things God has prepared just for me. As I seek God with my whole heart, I will allow Him to direct my thinking so that I can walk in greater wisdom and success according to the promises in His Word.

Jesus Understands Your Struggles by Joseph Prince
Hebrews 4:15

For we do not have a High Priest who cannot sympathize with our weaknesses, but was in all points tempted as we are, yet without sin.

Imagine meeting the new politician who is to represent your district or neighborhood only to discover that he is not familiar with your neighborhood’s needs and problems. You will wonder, “Can this guy really represent us? Does he know anything about our living conditions? Is he familiar with the various challenges that families here are facing? Can he help me get my child into one of the schools here?” I am sure that you would prefer someone who truly understands your challenges to represent you!

In the same way, I am so glad that right now at the Father’s right hand, we have someone who came as a Man to redeem us, and who fully understands what man goes through. When Jesus walked on earth, He went through every human emotion so that He could identify with us in all points. Jesus is God, but He is in the Father’s presence as a Man, representing us.

My friend, you may feel that no one understands your struggles. Listen, while this may be true of man, it is not true of Jesus. He knows exactly what you are going through and He can sympathize with your weaknesses because He was “in all points tempted as we are, yet without sin.”

None of us have been tempted in all points. But God allowed Jesus to be tempted in all points so that He can understand and identify with the struggles of every single person on this earth. He can be touched by our humanity—our weaknesses, tears, disappointments, griefs...all points!

There is no trial, difficulty, challenge or temptation that you face that Jesus cannot identify with. My friend, the moment you go through it, right there and then, He feels it too. That is the kind of representative you have in Jesus! That is the love of God so that you will draw near to His throne of grace (not judgment) to find mercy and grace in time of need (see Hebrews 4:15–16)!

Open Heavens: Divinely Satisfied? by Pastor E.A Adeboye
Friday January 18th 2019
Memorise: And having food and raiment let us be therewith content. 1st Timothy 6:8

Read: 1st Timothy 6:6-10 (KJV)
 But godliness with contentment is great gain.
7 For we brought nothing into this world, and it is certain we can carry nothing out.
8 And having food and raiment let us be therewith content.
9 But they that will be rich fall into temptation and a snare, and into many foolish and hurtful lusts, which drown men in destruction and perdition.
10 For the love of money is the root of all evil: which while some coveted after, they have erred from the faith, and pierced themselves through with many sorrows.

Bible in one year: 
Mark 7-8,
Isaiah 15:1-16:11,

Hymnal: 
Sing hymn 7

Message:
Contrary to common belief, satisfaction in life is not a matter of how much you have. Our Lord Jesus Christ said in Luke 12:15:

“….Take heed, and beware of covetousness: for a man’s life consisteth not in the abundance of the things which he possesseth.”

In other words, abundant possessions do not guarantee joy, peace or fulfilment in life. The Lord is asking you today, “Are you divinely satisfied? What is your satisfaction in life dependent on?” The reason why a lot of people are never satisfied in life is due to the lack of contentment. In today’s memory verse, the Holy Spirit instructs us to be content with having food and clothing. This is a command and not a piece of advice. To measure up to this heavenly standard, we must endeavour to discover what true blessing is and the source of it. Concerning true blessing, Proverbs 10:22 says:

“The blessing of the LORD, it maketh rich, and he addeth n sorrow with it.”

True blessings from the Lord have three characteristics: they bring riches in all ramifications; they are devoid of sorrow and are accompanied with contentment.

Irrespective of what a man has, if he is not content, he will restlessly pursue satisfaction throughout his life time. The Almighty God, in whose image we were created, is a great example to us on contentment. Genesis 1:31-2:2 says:

“And God saw every thing that he had made, and, behold, it was very good. And the evening and the morning were the sixth day. Thus the heavens and the earth were finished, and all the host of them. And on the seventh day God ended his work which he had made; and he rested on the seventh day from all his work which he had made.”

From the scripture above, we learn that God saw everything that he had made as being very good. In other words, God was content with what He had achieved in six days. This divine satisfaction made Him take a rest on the seventh day! We know that God continued His work after He rested on the seventh day because Jesus Christ said in John 5:17b:

“My Father worketh hitherto, and I work.”
The secret behind God resting on the seventh day even though He still had more work to do is not far-fetched: God was content with His achievements. This is why the Bible says in 1st Timothy 6:6

“But godliness with contentment is great gain.”

This verse shows that one may be godly but not have contentment. Beloved, when we become obsessed with work because we want to acquire more wealth to the detriment of our worship of God and even to the point of harming our body system, then we have fallen into the snare of the devil described in 1st Timothy 6:9. Are you divinely satisfied?

Prayer Point:
Father, please grant me the grace to live a life of godliness with contentment.

Get Yourself Together by Kenneth Copeland
Can two walk together, except they be agreed?

Amos 3:3

When it comes to faith, a lot of believers feel like they have one foot nailed to the ground. No matter how hard they try, they just can't seem to make any progress.

If you'll watch them, you can see why. They literally haven't "gotten themselves together." One minute they'll be telling you, "Oh yes, amen, I believe the Word," and the next minute they'll be spouting unbelief like it's going out of style. "I know God says He'll prosper us, but I'll tell you what, my business is doing so badly, it's about to give me ulcers. I can't sleep at night for worrying."

Dig a little deeper and you may find out that they've pulled their actions out of line with the Word as well. "Well, you understand, brother, I can't possibly tithe with my income like it is. I'd go under!"

Faith just won't work for a person like that.

You see, you're a triune being. You are a spirit. You have a soul, which consists of your mind, will and emotions. And you live in a body. Each of those areas has a specific role to play in your faith walk. You have to get all three in agreement before you can go anywhere at all!

Start by feeding your spirit on the Word of God. Just like the body produces physical strength when you nourish it with food, the spirit produces spiritual strength when you nourish it with the Word. That spiritual strength is called faith. Develop that faith, and instead of your spirit being dominated by the other two areas, it will be the one in charge.

Next, bring your soul in line. Set your mind on "things above." Meditate on the Word until your thoughts begin to agree with it. Keep your attention on it until even your emotions yield.

Finally, bring your body in line. Once you truly get your spirit and soul established on the Word, that won't be hard. The body is a follower, not a leader. It will do whatever you train it to do. Begin teaching your body to act on the truth you've planted in your mind and spirit, and it will follow right along.

Don't try to walk in faith with your foot nailed to the ground. Get yourself together! Bring your spirit, soul and body in harmony—and the Word will take you as far as you want to go.

Eyes to See by Billy Graham
To open their eyes, and to turn them from darkness to light...
—Acts 26:18

The blind man, Bartimaeus, threw off his cloak and ran trembling to Jesus. And Jesus said, “What do you want me to do for you?”

He said, “Lord, that I may receive my sight.” In that moment as he said, “Lord,” his spiritual eyes were opened. And Jesus said, “Your faith has made you whole.” Notice-not your intellectual understanding, not your money, not your works-but your faith. Faith! That’s all it takes! Immediately Bartimaeus, who had been blind all of his life, began to open his eyes, and the first thing he saw was the face of Jesus. What an experience-to open one’s eyes and look straight into the strong, tender face of Jesus! Bartimaeus met Jesus and the record says he “followed Jesus in the way.” When you go back to your business, or your home, or your neighborhood, or your friends, or your school, you don’t go alone. Christ goes with you.

It's All In You by Pastor Chris Oyakhilome
According as his divine power hath given unto us all things that pertain unto life and godliness… (2 Peter 1:3).

Every seed has in it all that it requires to produce other seeds, and invariably, a forest. Being born again, you’re like a seed, loaded with everything you’ll ever need for growth and success in life.

When a seed is planted, it sprouts, develops a stem, branches, leaves and, eventually, fruits. Question: Where did the stem, leaves, branches and fruits come from? They all came from that seed! Everything the seed needed to have a normal plant-life; to become a big tree and to reproduce fruits with seeds in them, was in the seed. All the seed needed was to be in the right environment.

God has given us everything that pertains to life and godliness. He’s already done it! You have within you everything you require for an excellent, triumphant, and balanced life. Everything you require for success and the effectual life of righteousness here on earth is all in your recreated human spirit! Everything you’ll be, and have, is in you.

Therefore, all you need is to be in the right environment, where you can build your inner man, and hear the right things, to help you think the right thoughts, and speak the right words. This is so  important because if you hear the wrong things, you’ll say the wrong words and the result would be the wrong fruits showing up in your life, instead of fruits of righteousness.

1 Corinthians 2:12-13 gives us some further insight; it says, “Now we have received…the spirit which is of God; that we might know the things that are freely given to us of God. Which things also we speak….” Here’s the connection: God has given us everything we require for life and godliness, but the Spirit of God teaches us and helps us know the things which God has given us freely in the spirit. You must learn to speak them as the Spirit gives you utterance in divine wisdom. Hallelujah!

Thus, every so often, affirm, “Glorious things are spoken and written of me. I’m a success and a victor; greater is He that’s in me than he that’s in the world. I reign and rule with Christ, triumphing gloriously every day!” Hallelujah!

CONFESSION
My origin is of God and that makes me an overcomer because greater is He that’s in me than he that’s in the world. The good life, health, success, strength, promotion and prosperity are mine, in Jesus’ Name. Amen.
