IN THE QUIET – HE IS SPEAKING

🔥 *ANCIENT WORDS DEVOTION*🔥

📆 *14/08/2018*
📜 *—Psalm 46:10 NIV*
_*“Be still, and know that I am God; I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth.”*_

💥When you enter into prayer, you need to eliminate distractions and become quiet. You can’t pray effectively when all around you the children are playing, music is blaring, the television is on, and people are asking you questions.

☀Prayer necessitates collecting yourself—your thoughts, your attention, your concentration. We are usually distracted by many things when we come to prayer. Our bodies are there, but our minds are somewhere else. We might be experiencing all kinds of emotions. Therefore, you need to put yourself in a position where you can become quiet.

🌹Let the Lord calm your heart, for He is more than enough. “You will keep in perfect peace him whose mind is steadfast, because he trusts in you” _*(Isaiah 26:3).*_ God provides everything you need, so you don’t have to be distracted by worry when you pray. When you come before the Lord in your private place, be quiet and listen to nothing but Him. The Lord says, “Be still and know that I am God.” In relation to this command, we can say, “Prayer is the expression of man’s dependency upon God for all things.”

🥀Let’s learn to spend time in quiet contemplation before the Lord. Don’t worry about speaking. It’s all right to say nothing. Just be quiet and bring your whole self to God in prayer. Calm your heart and come into the quiet place where you can hear Him. That’s when you are really praying.

☝ *GOLDEN THOUGHT*☝
_Silence helps bring you into a unity of heart and purpose with yourself and God._

🙏 *PRAYER*🙏
_Father, I long to be still and know You. I want to commune with You in the quiet of my heart. Help me find that place of rest in You in Jesus Christ’s Name. Amen!_

THE UNSEARCHABLE RICHES OF GOD’S GRACE

🔥 *ANCIENT WORDS DEVOTION*🔥

📆 *13/08/2018*
📜 *—Ephesians 1:3 NIV.*
_*“Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us in the heavenly realms with every spiritual blessing in Christ.”*_

💥Imagine an elderly couple living in a dilapidated farmhouse. They can barely afford the few groceries and medicines that they need. There isn’t even enough money to keep the heat on all the time.

☀Then a short while after they both have died, a huge deposit of oil is discovered on the old homestead. All their years of poverty were lived out sitting on top of untapped wealth.

🌹Sadly, many Christians go through life like that elderly couple. Such believers have distilled Christianity down to its most basic elements: God saved me and someday I’ll go to heaven. Though Jesus offers an abundant life now _*(John 10:10),*_ they aren’t living it. Spiritually poor believers fail to tap into the reservoir of God’s grace. Eternity begins the moment we are saved; there is no reason to wait until heaven to enjoy the Lord’s riches.

🥀God has lavished His grace upon believers. We receive righteousness, freedom from legalism, and an unbreakable union with our Father. In return, He desires that we invest time and energy in our relationship with Him. As we open ourselves to the Father, everything He has to offer pours freely into our lives. Our connection with Him makes it possible for us to live joyful, contented lives overflowing with blessing.

🌺True wealth isn’t measured by your bank account or automobile. As fellow heirs with Christ _*(Romans 8:17),*_ believers have access to God’s riches, which include unspeakable joy, unconditional love, and peace beyond understanding. Invest in your spiritual life, and enjoy these blessings of grace.

☝ *GOLDEN THOUGHT*☝

_Father, thank You for the unsearchable riches of Your Grace and Mercy unto me, take me deeper and higher in knowing Your heart that I may tap into them in Jesus Christ’s Name. Amen!_

SHABBAT DECLARATIONS

🙌 “`Praise Our God, Precious Saints……..“`

📜 *Job:22:28*
_*”Thou shalt also decree a thing, and it shall be established unto thee: and the light shall shine upon thy ways.”*_

👌Remember there’s power in declaring The Word of God over your life daily.

🙏I boldly and audibly decree and declare that:-

🔥 _I am confident of this very thing, that He who has begun a good work in me will complete it until the day of Jesus Christ_ *(Philippians 1:6).*

🔥 _God works in me both to will and to do His good pleasure_ *(Philippians 2:13).*

🔥 _I do all things without grumbling or complaining so that I will prove myself to be blameless and innocent. I am a child of God who is above reproach in the midst of a crooked and perverse generation, among whom I appear as lights in the world_ *(Philippians 2:14-15).*

🔥 _I hold fast to the word of life. In the day of Christ’s return, I will have reason to glory because I did not run or labor in vain_ *(Philippians 2:16).*

🔥 _I always rejoice in the Lord and my gentleness (graciousness or forbearance) is known to all people_ *(Philippians 4:4,5).* In Jesus Christ’s Name. Amen!

GOD — THE EVERLASTING ONE

🔥 *ANCIENT WORDS DEVOTION*🔥

📆 *10/8/2018*
📜 *—Isaiah 40:28-31 KJV*
_*“Hast thou not known? hast thou not heard, that the Everlasting God, the LORD, the Creator of the ends of the earth, fainteth not, neither is weary? there is no searching of his understanding. He giveth power to the faint; and to them that have no might he increaseth strength. Even the youths shall faint and be weary, and the young men shall utterly fall: But they that wait upon the LORD shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint.”*_

💥Depending on The EVARLASTING GOD is not a slogan; it should be a commitment, and the foundation for our lives. Isaiah provided important reasons why we must focus on Him.

☀First, He is “everlasting.” This means that He is beyond time. He is God today, and throughout all eternity. He is the same in every generation. He is the LORD of every place, and every person. The Creator. The One who originated all things. He knows everything about everyone, and everything.

🌟Since we are limited, we can forget that He has no limits. Since we have weaknesses, we can forget that God has no weaknesses. His power never ends. We can call on Him with confidence, at any time, for any need.

⭐Isaiah tells us that His understanding is unsearchable. This means that, no matter how hard we try, we never can fully grasp all that He has done, or planned. Knowing these truths, to realize the importance of prayer. To seek a more intimate relationship with Him. To study His Word.

👌If we grasp these truths, we will understand why God rewards those who wait on Him. He is prepared to give us what we need from His inexhaustible resources. Even young people, in the prime of life, become weary. But, eventually, every person will fall, and fall short.

🚨Everything changes for those who wait on the Lord. When we aren’t impatient but expect Him to answer our prayers. When we don’t waiver. As we wait, we demonstrate that we trust Him and understand His character. That we have placed our hope in Him.

🙏 *PRAYER*🙏
_Father I thank You because You’re the Everlasting God, my heart rejoices in that fact, therefore I wait on You, I’ll not run out of strength, I run and not grow weary and I will walk and not faint this year in Jesus Christ’s Name. Amen!_

A CALL TO SHINE

🔥 *ANCIENT WORDS DEVOTION*🔥

📆 *9/08/2018*
📜 *—Daniel 12:3 KJV*
_*“And they that be wise shall shine as the brightness of the firmament; and they that turn many to righteousness as the stars for ever and ever.”*_

💥In a series of visions, Daniel was told of a time filled with distress. But he also was told that “everyone who is found written in the book” will be rescued.

☀While these words pointed to the future, Daniel also was given insights with practical implications for our daily lives. In fact, we are to “shine brightly like the brightness of the expanse of heaven.” Here, in this life, we are to point others toward God.

🌟The message is that our lives are to be characterized by a shining brightness. For us to demonstrate the reality of the Gospel through our lives.

⭐As Jesus taught, His followers are to be “the light of the world.” As lights, we are to shine for Him. This means realizing that He puts us in situations so that others might see His light through our lives.

🚨In these situations, we are to let the light of the Gospel shine through us. Others should see that the Gospel is real through our example. We are to shine in such a way that others will glorify our Father in Heaven _*(Matthew 5:14-16).*_

☝Remember the old hymn? “`“We Shall Shine as the Stars.” In this present world, we may “tarry awhile here as strangers,” but after Jesus comes again, He “will crown us in glory.”
We may not be famous or “rich in earth’s treasures.” But in eternity we will “be rewarded.” Then we will “shine as the stars of the morning.” Thanks to Jesus, eternally we will “shine as the sun.”“`

👌This season, make sure that your light is shining brightly through the words that you speak and the things you do. Allow God’s light to shine through you.

🛑 *GOLDEN THOUGHT*🛑
_The message is that our lives are to be characterized by a shining brightness. For us to demonstrate the reality of the Gospel through our lives._

🙏 *PRAYER*🙏
_Father, I dedicate my life to You. May Your light shine brightly through me. Use me that others might know the truth and that the Gospel might be brought to the Nations in Jesus Christ’s Name. Amen!_

THE DEVIL IS A LIAR!!

🔥 *ANCIENT WORDS DEVOTION*🔥

📆 *8/8/2018*
📜 *John 8:44*
_*When [the devil] speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it.*_

🤷‍♂Some people find it difficult to believe God’s promises because they’ve seen so many things in the natural world that seem to contradict them. They’ve seen faithful tithers go broke. They’ve seen sick Christians fail to receive their healing.

🚫In reality, it would be more accurate to say that they think they’ve seen those things. Because, you see, there’s a deceiver at work in the world. A deceiver who’s busily doing the same thing he’s been doing ever since the Garden of Eden: tricking mankind into believing God’s Word isn’t true.

❌And, after working on it for thousands of years, he’s a master at it. Think about that the next time he tries to make things look as though God’s Word is not going to work for you, when he makes it look like all hope is lost. Say, “I don’t care about appearances. I believe the Word and I refuse to doubt it.”

☝Let me show you what I mean. Have you ever seen a magic show where someone crawls inside a box and then is sawn in half? You can see it with your own two eyes. The guy’s feet are sticking out one end of the box and his head is poking out the other, and the box is plainly cut in two. Then the magician slides the two halves back together and the sawed-apart fellow jumps out of the box in one piece.

👏Now tell me, did you really believe, even for a moment, that fellow was truly cut in half? Of course not! You knew that you’d seen a trick, a deception, something that appeared one way when, in reality, it was a different way altogether. You may not have known how it was done. You may not have been able to explain it. But you knew a person couldn’t be sawn in half, then put back together, so you refused to believe your eyes.

✋That’s exactly the way you need to be where the Word of God is concerned. You need to learn to trust it and rely on it to such an extent that when Satan shows you something in the natural world that appears to contradict it, you just say, “Well, I saw that, but I’m not going to be gullible enough to believe it. I’m just going to stick with the Word.”

♦If you’ll do that, the father of lies will never be able to put one over on you.
*I pray for you, that God will grace you to stand firm on His promises against all odds.*

🛑 *FURTHER READ*🛑
Psalm 119:89-104

🙏 *PRAYER*🙏
_Father, Thy Word is Truth, for it makes the simple wise. With the whole amour of God on me, I stand to rebuke all the lies of the devil sent to endanger my faith. I believe the Word of God, I can do what it says I can do, and I am what it says I am, In Jesus Christ’s Name. Amen!_

WAKE UP TO GOD’S DREAM

🔥 *ANCIENT WORDS DEVOTION*🔥

📆 *7/8/2018*
📜 *Exodus 3:11-12*
_*And Moses said unto God, Who am I, that I should go unto Pharaoh, and that I should bring forth the children of Israel out of Egypt? And he said, Certainly I will be with thee.*_

💭Have you ever had a Holy Spirit-inspired dream, a dream of doing something really great for Jesus? A dream of being so prosperous, for instance, that you can finance a nationwide revival? A dream of leading thousands of people to the Lord?

⛔At one time or another, you probably have, but perhaps you backed away from it. You thought, Oh my, I couldn’t do that. satan’s kept me defeated for so long I have a poor self-image.

♦If so, I have some good news for you. If you’ll believe God, even a poor self-image won’t keep you from success. Look in the book of Exodus and you’ll see a man who proved that. His name was Moses.

🔴Moses didn’t have a very good self-image. He’d made a terrible mistake early in his career. It was a mistake that drove him into the wilderness and kept him there for 40 years herding someone else’s sheep.

📍He’d once dreamed of being a deliverer of God’s people, but no more. As far as he was concerned, he was finished…a failure…a flop!

👏But God didn’t think so. In fact, when God came to Moses in that wilderness, He didn’t ask for Moses’ credentials. He didn’t mention his shady history. He just told him to go see Pharaoh and tell him to let God’s people go.

💥Moses, however, was still wrestling with his poor self-image. “Who am I that I should go to Pharaoh?” he stammered.
You know what God said in response? He just said, “Certainly, I will be with thee.”

☀You see, it didn’t matter who Moses was. What mattered was that the living God was with him. The same thing is true for you today. You don’t need a history of successes behind you to answer God’s call. You don’t need a string of spiritual credentials. All you need is the presence of the Lord.

💫Think about that when the devil tells you you’re a failure, when he says you’ll never be able to do what God has put in your heart to do. Put him in his place. Tell him it doesn’t matter who you are because the living God is with you. *Then dare to wake up to God’s dream for Your life!*

🛑 *FURTHER READ*🛑
Exodus 3:1-14

🙏 *PRAYER*🙏
_Father, I praise You for Your generous call on my life. Here am I LORD, fulfill Your agenda through me like You did with the prophets of old. Deliver me from the traps of satan that are geared to hinder me from Your dream for my Life. Let my life bring You glory in Jesus Christ’s Name.Amen!_
