TOPIC: You Are More Than A Conqueror (Sunday, 11 March 2018)
FIRE SCRIPTURE: Romans 8:35-39
“And having spoiled principalities and powers, he made a shew of them openly, triumphing over them in it.’’ –Colossians 2:15
What does it really mean to be “more than conquerors?” To be more than conquerors means we face the trials of life with the certainty that we are going to be victorious because we are not alone and we have a mighty Father who fights for us.
Topic: Growing as a Christian [Billy Graham’s Daily Monday March 12th, 2018]
Dear brothers, I have been talking to you as though you were still just babies in the Christian life . . . — 1 Corinthians 3:1 (TLB)
Some people have received Christ but have never reached spiritual maturity. They have been in church all their lives, and yet they have never become mature Christians. They are still considered “spiritual children” and “babes in Christ.” They know little Scripture. They have little desire to pray, and bear few of the marks of a Christian in their daily living.
Topic: God Answers Every Prayer [Andrew Wommack’s Daily Monday March 12th, 2018]
Matthew 7:7, “Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you:”
Text: Matthew 7:6-8
Prayer which meets the requirements outlined in God’s Word is always answered. Many times we don’t perceive the answer because it always comes in the spiritual realm first before it is manifested in the physical realm. If we waver from our confident faith, then we abort the manifestation of that answer (Jas. 1:6-7; Heb. 10:35). But God did answer. Everyone who asks receives.
Topic: As Your Soul Prospers [Kenneth and Gloria Copeland, Monday March 12, 2018]
Beloved, I wish above all things that thou mayest prosper and be in health, even as thy soul prospereth. – 3 John 2
Once you begin to believe it is God’s will to prosper you, you can’t help but wonder how He is going to do it. Is He going to put a check in the mail? Or start floating $20 bills down from the trees?
Topic: Three-Lettered Faith [Our Daily Bread 12 Monday March, 2018]
Read: Habakkuk 3:17–19, Bible in a Year: Deuteronomy 17–19; Mark 13:1–20
Yet I will rejoice in the Lord; I will be joyful in God my Savior. Habakkuk 3:18
With a tendency toward pessimism, I quickly jump to negative conclusions about how situations in my life will play out. If I’m thwarted in my efforts on a work project, I’m easily convinced none of my other projects will be successful either, and—even though utterly unrelated—I will probably never be able to touch my toes comfortably. And, woe is me, I’m an awful mother who can’t do anything right. Defeat in one area unnecessarily affects my feelings in many.
Topic: Stay Where You Are Planted [TREM’s Daily Monday March 12, 2018]
“Those that be planted in the house of the Lord shall flourish in the courts of our God”. – Psalms 92:13
There is a “there” for every child of God. Every Ministry has a peculiar assignment and every believer has a calling that aligns with where they are planted. Like you very well know, there are no denominations in heaven. The key to heaven is your acceptance of Jesus Christ as your personal Lord and Saviour. However, when you gave your life to Christ, God left you here on earth to fulfil a purpose and that is where the Church where you are planted comes in.
Topic: Create The Atmosphere This Year! [Our Daily Manna ODM Monday, March 12th, 2018]
Basic Scripture: 2 Kings 3:11-24
God could not use Abraham till he left his people! God did not show Abraham the extent of his calling till Lot left him. Samson did not know the Holy Ghost had left him because DELILAH was an ATMOSPHERE BLOCKER! The Holy Ghost will bulldoze every ATMOSPHERE SUCKER this week or this year.
Topic: Divine Intervention [Open Heavens 12th Monday March 2018]
Memorise: “In the day of my trouble I will call upon thee: for thou wilt answer me.” – Psalm 86:7
Read: Psalm 57:1-6 (KJV)
1 (To the chief Musician, Altaschith, Michtam of David, when he fled from Saul in the cave.) Be merciful unto me, O God, be merciful unto me: for my soul trusteth in thee: yea, in the shadow of thy wings will I make my refuge, until these calamities be overpast.

A father’s influence goes to the fourth generation after him. Whitney Houston’s parents Emily and John Houston divorced when she was at kindergarten. Together with her lover, Bobby Brown, Whitney smoked crack in the presence of their 5 year old daughter, Bobbi Kristina. At 22, Bobbi died of drug abuse…her mother Whitney died at 48 on similar grounds. Great careers and more importantly, great lives lost due to weak fatherhood.

Topic: Beginning With God [Tuesday December 2, 2018]
Scripture: Behold, I will do a new thing; now it shall spring forth; shall ye not know it? I will even make a way in the wilderness, and rivers in the desert. Isaiah 43:19.
Thought For The Day: It is the Nature of God to turn things around at the beginning of every new phase of life.
Topic: Pressing On — Tuesday January 2, 2018.
Read: Philippians 3:7–14, Bible in a Year: Genesis 4–6; Matthew 2
I press on toward the goal to win the prize. Philippians 3:14
As I walked past an outside wall of the office building where I work, I was amazed to see a beautiful flower growing up through a crack between concrete slabs covering the ground. Despite its deprived circumstance, the plant had found a foothold, rooted itself in the dry crevice, and was flourishing. Later, I noticed that an air-conditioning unit located directly above the plant dropped water on it throughout the day. While its surroundings were hostile, the plant received the help it needed from the water above.

Topic: An Intriguing Memorial — Tuesday January 2, 2018.
Text: Joshua 4:10-24
Key Verse: "And he spake unto the children of Israel, saying, When your children shall ask their fathers in time to come, saying, What mean these stones? Then ye shall let your children know, saying, Israel came over this Jordan on dry land" (Joshua 4:21,22).
Topic: Bad Thinking and Bad Product! [Tuesday, January 2, 2018]
Basic scripture: Philippians 4:1-10
Welcome this change-of-garment new Year! Some year ago, the Toyota company had a popular advert used for Toyota product: it was, “Good thinking, Good product”. Oh yes, you can also say quite the opposite: “BAD thinking; BAD product.” in this New Year 2018, it is great to create your own future and not your own failure by the thought you think! God gives us the ability to think, but unfortunately, he does not guarantee or supervise what we think!
Topic: The Proof Of Discipleship — Tuesday January 2, 2018.
“By this shall all men know that ye are my disciples, if ye have love one to another.” John 13:35 (KJV)
It is ironic that we leave the main issues and focus on the mundane things. We are caught up in what we wear, our hairstyle, style of music etc. when the proof of being a disciple is love one for another. Yesterday, we saw that the commanded blessing is in the place of unity and today, the word to us is to love one another.
Topic: Now, Or Then? [Tuesday January 2, 2018]
John 1:16, "And of his fulness have all we received, and grace for grace."
Text: John 1:1-18
The Christian life is not like an insurance policy that only pays off when we die and go to heaven. Every believer has now received the grace of God and the fullness of God. We are now complete in Him (Col. 2:9-10).
Topic: Look Up! [Tuesday January 2, 2018]
Consider [Jesus] that endured such contradiction of sinners against himself, lest ye be wearied and faint in your minds. - Hebrews 12:3
Look up...because in times like these, your very life may depend on it.
Some time ago, the Lord showed me that a spirit of weariness is trying to work its way into our lives these days through all the pressure and bad news that surround us. It's working to get our eyes off the Word of God by bombarding us with negative forces. It's trying to get us to look down at defeat instead of up at Jesus.
Topic: Encounter with fresh oil through praise!
We understand from scriptures that fresh oil (the anointing of the Holy Ghost) is the master key to a world of exploits. Also, as long as the oil remains fresh, continuous and unstoppable breakthroughs are guaranteed. Interestingly, among the mysteries in praise is an encounter with fresh oil. This is why only praiseful believers enjoy fresh oil.
Obviously, God the Anointer is also the custodian of the anointing. For instance, we saw how God anointed Jesus of Nazareth with the Holy Ghost and with power: who went about doing good, and healing all that were oppressed of the devil; for God was with him (Acts 10:38). However, the journey to having fresh oil begins with seeking access to God’s presence and there is no other way to access His presence except through praise. As it is written: Make a joyful noise unto the Lord, all ye lands. Serve the Lord with gladness: come before his presence with singing (Psalm 100:1-2; 92:10, 14).
Topic: Family Dominion, How Possible? (5)
So far, we have examined the possibility of family dominion. I started by explaining how obedience to God’s Word will enable you have dominion, how you can live peacefully with your family members, how you can enjoy rest in your family and how your choice of family friends can either make or mar your family.
It is my prayer that having sensitively gone through these teachings, you shall begin to experience all-round dominion in your family, in Jesus’ name!
