QUOTE OF THE DAY: “YOU ARE NOT HEARD BECAUSE YOU HAVE NOT SPOKEN”

Memory Verse: “For if you remain silent at this time, relief and deliverance for the Jews will arise from another place, but you and your father’s family will perish. And who knows but that you have come to royal position for such a time as this?” Esther 4:14.

It is good to be silent, but not in all cases. There are times your silence will do more harm than good. One of the major ways to express feelings, opinions, thoughts and to make contribution is to speak out. By the way, why must you speak out? There are many reasons:
You as an individual is the most valuable resource on the earth. When you speak, express, project something meaningful, your business, your community and even your own life immediately get better. Besides, sinners will be saved, ‘so then faith comes by hearing…’ (Romans 10:17). Thus, you owe humanity a duty to say the truth that will liberate them. Also, when you speak out, pent up positive or negative feelings are expressed and your opinions are made known to the rest of the world (James 5:6).

QUOTE OF THE DAY:“IN THE SPIRIT, YOU CANNOT BE FEARFUL AND BE POWERFUL”

Memory Verse: “What I feared has come upon me; what I dreaded has happened to me” Job 3:25.

There was a boxer whose strategy of defeating his opponents was to inject fear into them by the use of intimidating words prior to the commencement of their fight. Thus, he weakens them with these words and when they are weakened, he pounces on them and defeats them. This is exactly what Satan does via the instrument of fear. One of the strategies lions use in capturing their potential prey is roaring. Whenever and wherever a lion roars, all animals within that vicinity would feel jittery and scamper for safety. The essence of its roar is to make them jittery and fearful. In the process, they lose the power to run and escape. This is exactly what Satan does ‘1 Peter 5:8 – ‘Be self-controlled and alert. Your enemy the devil prowls around like a roaring lion looking for someone to devour’. (more…)

QUOTE OF THE DAY: “IF THERE IS A VICTORY YOU HAVE NOT WON, IT MEANS THERE IS A REVELATION YOU HAVE NOT YET CAUGHT”

Memory Verse: “I want to know Christ and the power of his resurrection and the fellowship of sharing in his sufferings, becoming like him in his death” Philippians 3:10.

The more of God in you, the more of His spirit in you, the more of battles you win, and the more of freedom you will enjoy. As a matter of fact, freedom is first of all mental before it is physical. The strength of any captivity is ignorance; thus, as long as you are ignorant, you are vulnerable to defeat.

God must be known, and revealed to your spirit at all times – meaning that every challenge, experience of yours must draw you nearer to God. It must take you deeper in God, and it must increase the measure of God in you. For instance, if you pray for the sick, whether they are healed or not, it must move you to another level of prayer. If you pray for a person who is deaf and his ears open, the next time you see another deaf person, you will become more audacious in prayer. (more…)
