GOD SAYS, “YOU ARE MY PEOPLE”

🔥ANCIENT WORDS DEVOTION🔥
Monday, June 4, 2018

Good Morning! 🙂

📜2 Corinthians 6:16 “And what union can there be between God’s temple and idols? For we are the temple of the living God. As God said: “I will live in them and walk among them. I will be their God, and they will be my people.”

🏰God has chosen to dwell in us. This goes to show how important we are to Him. Consider this: Even the heavens cannot contain God due to His vastness (1 Kings 8:27). We can therefore have as much of God’s presence within us as we want. The key is to have enough timber to keep our spiritual lives burning for more. “An immense amount of timber will be needed, for the Temple I am going to build will be very large and magnificent.” 2 Chronicles 2:9

🌊The more we abide in God, the deeper our relationship with Him gets, thus we get to know Who exactly dwells in us. We get to know His likes and dislikes, His Power, His desires, etc. We basically get to know the essence of Him coming into our lives. (Study John 15:1-11)

💡Once we have known Who God is, then we will be able to manifest His presence. We can only manifest that which we have taken time to study. We shall lay hands on the sick and they shall be healed only after we have been with the Healer. There must be a place of experience and encounter with the God behind the Power.

🌹Let us therefore treat our bodies with utmost care; keeping away from sin, eating well, taking enough rest, appreciating and empowering ourselves, etc. Prioritize growth in God above all other things.

🔥The fact that God dwells in me makes my body holy! Pastor Paraz. (Ref: 1 Corinthians 3:16,17)

🙏🏾Father, what an honor it is for me, that You have chosen to make my heart Your home! Thank You for staying. I pray that I may host You in the best way possible, that I may become more like You, in Jesus Name and by the Power of the Holy Spirit, Amen.

🙏🏾Have a God-filled day always!🙏🏾

HOW GOD REMEMBERS US

🔥ANCIENT WORDS DEVOTION🔥
Friday, June 1, 2018

A Glorious New Month To You! 🙂

📜Nehemiah 13:14 “Remember me, O my God, concerning this, and do not wipe out my good deeds that I have done for the house of my God and for His service.”

📜Nehemiah 13:22b “…For this also remember me, O my God, and have compassion on me according to the greatness of Your lovingkindness.”

📜Nehemiah 13:31b “…Remember me, O my God, for good.”

🛠Year after year we have followed the teachings in the Bible; doing good, serving in church, observing the Sabbath, giving, praying, fasting, etc. None of this has gone wasted. “So, my dear brothers and sisters, be strong and immovable. Always work enthusiastically for the Lord, for you know that nothing you do for the Lord is ever useless.” 1 Corinthians 15:58

🤔We therefore need to know why we do the things we do. “Whatever you do, do it from the heart, as something done for the Lord and not for people.” Colossians 3:23

🏰 When we do good, we establish the Kingdom of God and when the Kingdom of God is established, our issues are sorted. “Seek the Kingdom of God above all else, and live righteously, and He will give you everything you need.” Matthew 6:33

🕕Half of the year is almost done. Do not feel as though it’s gone wasted. Every effort counts. Commit everything to God. (1 Peter 5:7 “Casting all your cares on Him, because He cares about you.”)

💡You’ve got to first be a member, to be ‘re’membered (renewed membership). Subscribe to the Kingdom of God.

🙏🏾Father, thank You for remembering me time after time. By Your grace I shall remain as a member of Your Kingdom, in Jesus Name, Amen.

🙏🏾Do have a ‘re’membered day🙏🏾

FATHER-SON RELATIONSHIP

🔥ANCIENT WORDS DEVOTION🔥
Thursday, May 31, 2018

Good Morning🙂

📜Luke 1:37 “For with God nothing shall be impossible.”

📜Philippians 4:13 “I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.”

🔗 We’re only able to enjoy a limitless life when we’re linked to God since He is the only One who is all knowing. “Do you not know? Have you not heard? The Everlasting God, the LORD, the Creator of the ends of the earth Does not become weary or tired His understanding is inscrutable.” Isaiah 40:28

👑 God governs heaven and He has graced us to govern earth. “The heavens are the LORD’s, but the earth He has given to the human race.” Psalm 115:16. The only way to be effective in governing earth is by inquiring from the Maker of heaven and earth, and that’s why we pray like this, “Your Kingdom come, Your will be done, on earth as it is in heaven.” Matthew 6:10

✅For us to enjoy continuous success, we simply need to do what we see our Father in heaven do. “So Jesus explained, “I tell you the truth, the Son can do nothing by Himself. He does only what He sees the Father doing. Whatever the Father does, the Son also does.” John 5:19

🔥After you have become a son of God, don’t stop there. Daily commune with your Father and you will be surprised at the things you’re capable of achieving. #SupernaturalLife

💡Father + Son = Limitless Possibilities! ©αnneobure

🙏🏾Father, thank You for making me Your son and empowering me to do the things You do. I pray I may never disappoint You, by the Power of Your Spirit in me, in Jesus Name, Amen.

🙏🏾Do have a supernatural day🙏🏾

A TWO-IN-ONE AGENDA

🔥ANCIENT WORDS DEVOTION🔥
Wednesday, May 30, 2018

📜Hebrews 4:12 “For the Word of God is living, and active, and sharper than any two-edged sword, and piercing even to the dividing of soul and spirit, of both joints and marrow, and is able to discern the thoughts and intentions of the heart.”

💪🏾We know that God is all powerful and we also know that He has magnified His Word above His Name (Psalm 138:2). He goes ahead and assures us that no Word that proceeds from His mouth returns empty, without accomplishing His desire and without succeeding in the matter for which He sent it. Isaiah 55:11

✝We should therefore be very careful with the Word of God. The same Word that delivers also destroys, depending on the state of our hearts. The Spirit of God is never absent from His Word.

💥Everytime we come into contact with the Word of God (through personal study, sermons, or even one-on-one exhortation), something happens within us. The Word illuminates our innermost beings and sorts the good from the bad. Thereafter we need to take action, as the Spirit of God leads.

🤷🏽‍♂”But someone who does not know, and then does something wrong, will be punished only lightly. When someone has been given much, much will be required in return; and when someone has been entrusted with much, even more will be required.” Luke 12:48

🔥👉🏾You’re better off not reading the Bible than puffing yourself up with knowledge without following the instructions therein.

💡The Word of God works; not by us bending it to suit our situation, but by God mending us to spot the revelation. ©αnneobure

🙏🏾Father, only You could make The Word alive and active. Remind me to remain aware of the Power (The Holy Spirit) behind Your Word (Jesus Christ) at all times, that I may not abuse You, in Jesus Name, Amen.

🙏🏾SHALOM🙏🏾

CHRISTIAN CODE OF CONDUCT

🔥ANCIENT WORDS DEVOTION🔥
Tuesday, May 29, 2018

📜1 Peter 2:12 “Be careful to live properly among your unbelieving neighbors. Then even if they accuse you of doing wrong, they will see your honorable behavior, and they will give honor to God when He judges the world.”

🇮🇱Watch that you do not misrepresent The Kingdom of God. Act as though you are the only ‘Bible’ the people around you will ever read. They will only come to believe in a Gospel that’s already been tried and tested and proven successful.

❓Am I saying that we should live a lie? Certainly not! What I’m trying to say is that we should publicly give God the glory that is due to Him; for who He is and for all that He has done for us, and to privately seek Him for deliverance in the areas we’re still allowing Him to work on.

🗑There’s usually a clothes basket at a hidden corner in your bedroom meant for the dirty clothes and a clothes line right outside your house meant for the laundered clothes.
🧥“👚“👖“👔“👗“👘

⚠Having dirty linen accumulate is bad enough; airing this dirty linen out in the open is another horrible story altogether. Deal with your inner heart issues so that you are able to truly live as the Kingdom expects you to. “Dear children, let’s not merely say that we love each other; let us show the Truth by our actions” 1 John 3:18

🤔God in His Sovereignty would have caused Christ to be born on earth and when He was 2 years old, He’d have allowed King Herod’s plan in Matthew 2:16 of killing the Messiah to succeed thus Christ dying for our sins. The reason Jesus Christ stayed a while before ultimately being killed is so that we could have a ‘Master Copy’ to work with. “Those who say they live in God should live their lives as Jesus did.” 1 John 2:6

🚫No situation we face should act as an excuse for us living substandard lives. Approach the Master whenever you face challenges. “This High Priest of ours understands our weaknesses, for He faced all of the same testings we do, yet He did not sin.” Hebrews 4:15.

💡Retreat into the secret place with the burden and rejoice in the public place with the blessing. ©αnne¤bure

🙏🏾Father, forgive us for all the times we have misrepresented Your Kingdom in commission of sin or omission of a thriving existence. Guide us to be Your true ambassadors, in Jesus Name and by the Power of the Holy Spirit, Amen.

FROM VICTIM, THROUGH VICTORY, TO VICTOR

🔥ANCIENT WORDS DEVOTION🔥
Thursday, May 24, 2018

📜2 Corinthians 1:3,4 “Let us give thanks to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the merciful Father, the God from whom all help comes! He helps us in all our troubles, so that we are able to help others who have all kinds of troubles, using the same help that we ourselves have received from God.” GNT

💭Let your TBT (Throw Back Thursday) for today be all the troubles that God has delivered you from. There was a time you had an ‘impossible’ situation and the God of all possibilities came through for you. “…with God all things are possible.” Matthew 19:26

⏭Don’t stop at that. Use these experiences as tools for helping others that are experiencing similar troubles. Let the Light of God in you shine by glorifying Him (giving Him the glory for the deliverance you received) by sharing your testimony, so that they too can glorify your Father. “Matthew 5:16”

😨Having the problem was a headache;
🙂Getting your problem solved is a relief;
😇Helping someone solve their problem will be glorious.

📝Therefore take notes as the Lord delivers you. Each step is crucial; not only for you but also for those you are called to.

💡 In the morning, the issue was a problem. At noon it is a problem solved. In the evening you become a problem solver.©αnneobure

🙏🏾Father, over and over You have bailed me out. Today I ask You to remind me of all the successes I have had in You so that I may encourage others. Thank You for Your Word, in Jesus Name and by the Power of the Holy Spirit, Amen.

🙏🏾SHALOM🙏🏾

EARTH – LIMITED EDITION

🔥ANCIENT WORDS DEVOTION🔥
Wednesday, May 23, 2018

Praise God!

📜Psalm 90:12 “So teach us to consider our mortality, so that we might live wisely.”

🕒Compare our time here on earth with eternity. There is definitely no comparison at all. The former is short (in a limited way) while the latter is long (in an infinite way).

🤔Our choices here on earth will determine our final destination (life after physical death). Choose Christ and live forever.

↩Yesterday was Tuesday the 22nd of May, 2018; gone, never to return. Today we are a day older; there’s no time our age will reduce.

⬆If we’re convinced of eternity, then we’re better off allowing only the things that positively affect our final destination to take up our time. “Set your affection on things above, not on things on the earth.” Colossians 3:2

🌍”And this world is fading away, along with everything that people crave. But anyone who does what pleases God will live forever.” 1 John 2:17

🕚Time and tide wait for no man. St Marher, 1225.

💭Today we celebrate the life of Mr. Obure Ochoro (Dad) who went ahead of us on this day, 9 years ago. He always emphasized on “Doing the right thing, at the right TIME, at all TIMES.”

🙏🏾Father, thank You for reminding us of the things that truly matter. Help us to fully utilize our time here on earth with heaven in mind, in Jesus Name and by the Power of the Holy Spirit, Amen.

🙏🏾SHALOM🙏🏾
