WHAT WOULD YOU RATHER HAVE?


In a world where you're left with different choices everyday, faced with challenges to pick from options. What would you rather have? You don't have to change the plans God has placed in your heart just to make a pick because it looks nice. Stand and make a difference.
There will always be a time where you have to choose between doing what's right or wrong. What would you rather have? Not every door that opens up are to be accessed. You should be able to ask God what would you have me do?  Yes it could be on a platter of Gold and you see it as a favour but does it fit into the goal and God's plan for you.
It's not about pleasing yourself, to having what you want but the utmost priority is glorifying God in all you do. Always give a chance to that thought or voice telling you God first, don't be so overwhelmed with what you see that you forget what God has told you. There will always be that few seconds that gives you  a chance to say no, I'll rather have this because that's what God would have me do. Never say I don't/didn't have a choice if you're a person of purpose then you must stand and make a choice. Make choices or pick your choose according God's said word and agenda. You have that opportunity, yes but go for what God would want you have!

NUGGET: FAMILIAR FRIENDS
PSALM 41:9; Yea, mine own familiar friend, in whom I trusted, which did eat of my bread, hath lifted up his heel against me.

Friends are good and God has a reason why he has placed certain people in your life. But when a person who is meant to be a friend gives way to the devil to use them as a tool they become physical friends or spiritual foes. I'll share this with you,something very personal.Recently God revealed that a friend that a friend back in school gave me a drug while I was I'll and that drug was a had an evil agenda,but thank God for His mercies. A normal me don't eat or or things from people just anyhow let alone drug I'll rather go get it myself but because I had that confidence that this person was a friend I took it. Some people are suffering today because they have so entrusted themselves to the wrong people ,that even when the signs are there and the holy spirit is speaking it will difficult for them to hear. The truth is the devil will never use an outside to get to because you might not easily fall for that He uses friends. This kind of people are called familiar friends, because they know you so well that they can sell you out or hurt you. Be careful of the kind of friends you keep. Do a spiritual check on them with prayers, ask God how will this person affect my life positively or negatively. I pray God will deliver you from such friends in Jesus name.
O Lord deliver me from foes wearing friendly veil. O Lord give me the spirit of discernment. Father forcefully separate me from wrong company. Father avenge me of my adversaries. In the name of Jesus I rise from every spiritual lock down. The blood of Jesus cleanses my system of any poisonous element in my system in Jesus name, amen!

NUGGET: CAN YOU HEAR ME ?
PSALM 85:8-9; I will hear what God the LORD will speak: for he will speak peace unto his people, and to his saints: but let them not turn again to folly. Surely his salvation is nigh them that fear him; that glory may dwell in our land.

It is one thing for God to speak and it's another thing for you to hear Him. Sometimes you're so occupied with unproductive thoughts, caging the mind that all you hear is discouragement. But that moment when you are able to shut those thoughts out of your mind and say God speak to me,you will definitely hear him. You have to build a marriage relationship with God, so much that that your thoughts are aligned with His word. Though the devil will roar noise but you won't hear him because your mind is filled with divinity. Devil has screamed situation so loud in the ears of some people that it's the only thing they hear. The thing you constantly hear is what your heart begins to believe.
It's time to turn to God today and say father I want to hear you,declare it till it gets into your spirit. Keep saying I will hear what the Lord will say. It is God's voice I want to speak to me,for me and in me. Let every lies of the devil be shut up. God's grace is speaking high in me today. He speaks peace . I hear God's voice into life and purposeful living in Jesus nam,amen !

NUGGET: DIVINE DIRECTION
2SAMUEL 5:23-25: And when David enquired of the LORD, he said, Thou shalt not go up; but fetch a compass behind them, and come upon them over against the mulberry trees. And let it be, when thou hearest the sound of a going in the tops of the mulberry trees, that then thou shalt bestir thyself: for then shall the LORD go out before thee, to smite the host of the Philistines. And David did so, as the LORD had commanded him; and smote the Philistines from Geba until thou come to Gazer.

Sometimes in life there are steps people want to make but they lack direction. And this has frustrated so many dreams . How do I go about this? is the question question that pops up at such time and situation. Through my time of studying David and all the battles He fought and conquered, one thing was obviously common ,he had divine direction. If you read from verse 19 of the text you'll see that God already gave him a go ahead. This direction didn't just fall on his lap, he asked God for it, shall I go? Will you go with me? Because no man can attain victory without God. I don't know who is lost today, what you need is God's direction. His compass is what will get you to your destination. This particular passage of today's devotional struck me because this direction was precise. Means overtime David hath built a father and son relationship with God. David understood the importance of God's direction. A man without a compass going to an unknown destination will definitely get lost. This world is not our home, the only one that can help us reach our destination is God.
O Lord help me find my path. Tell me where to go and what to do. Order my step in your word Lord. Give me the grace to walk in your footprint. Help me retrace my step from a wrong track. Open my eyes to see my destiny map. I shall not walk in darkness but in a path of light in Jesus name, amen!

WHAT IS YOUR TOUCH ?


Every person has a different touch when it comes to influence, interaction, contacts and relationship. What is your own touch?  There must be something that you are known for. Look around you in that location where you find yourself, the impact you've made will become a pointer in your direction. Whatever impact you've made so far will be talked about and made reference to.
As much as we have our different or individual touch, make sure yours isn't a negative touch. Who you are is what you should represent. If you are a light your touch should illuminate lives. The impact or influence you've made will tell you the kind of touch you carry. You can't touch lives by causing  them hurt and pain. You have to make a positive difference. Whenever you get to a place give your touch. Also look for something that is lacking and give a touch of life, such way you make a greater impact . Your touch is not limited so far you're doing the right thing.
Flee whatever will have you make a wrong and negative impact. You are a seed of blessing and a reward from God. Live like it and shine the light. Don't try to be like every other person, be you and give your own touch.

NUGGET: HONOUR GOD WITH YOUR ALL
PROVERBS 3:10; Honour the LORD with thy substance, and with the firstfruits of all thine increase:So shall thy barns be filled with plenty, and thy presses shall burst out with new wine.

Honoring God goes beyond just honoring Him with material things or money. You are to honour God with your body, your behaviour, your lifestyle and all that you are because all you are and have comes from Him. As you honour Him in all things you give God a reason to entrust you with more. Your gift/offering can be rejected by God if your life doesn't please Him. And the Bible made it clear that if about to give and have scores to settle drop the offering at the altar go and settle it then come and give. Can I shock someone today, God is more interested in your heart than in your money. Honouring God starts with your personal life. As you honour God with your all He blesses you beyond what your barn can receive. There is more to honoring God than just giving him offering. The story of Cain and Abel has alot to say about this, God accepted one offering over the other because it was beyond just giving. One knew the importance of the heart connection the Father and honouring Him. God is not a beggar, He is the source. Don't think you are doing God a favour when you are actually the one that needs Him because he is the air you breath. I just want you to make that bold decision today. Honour God in all and with all.
Father I give you all that I am and would ever be. Take the best of me and use it for your glory. Be my guide for life. I bring myself totally in submission to your will. Break me, mold me and make what you want me to be in Jesus name, amen!

EVERY STEP


Each step you take have a way of shaping your life . From one step to another you've learnt, grown, have, be and experienced life. But the most important step anyone can ever take is that which is orders by the Lord.
When God orders your step, no matter how rough the journey looks He keeps you in safety and in the end He makes you rejoice. Taking steps ordered by the Lord is beyond just walking, it marks significance.
You may have taken some unproductive steps in the past, don't you think it's about time you step into the footprint of Jesus as you let Him be your guide.
True every step taken has it's impact in lives but you can never go wrong walking in Christ's footprint. Everyday you are faced with a new dawn do you ask Him to lead you or you just go ahead on your own?  How God takes you through the journey is beyond physical ability but in grace enablement. Every step can be more than just a step, if you let God lead you through into giant steps. Your destination is unsure until God leads you. His path is eternal.

2JOHN 1:6;  And this is love, that we walk after his commandments. This is the commandment, That, as ye have heard from the beginning, ye should walk in it.

 
You can't say you love God and love the world. You can't love outside God, that will be lusting after the world. Walking according to the will of God is a true expression of God's command of love. In the expression of love you have to love in accordance to the biblical qualities that love entails . You have to know those qualities and work according to it.

My little children, let us not love in word, neither in tongue; but in deed and in truth.

When your bowel of compassion is open, it means you see people beyond where they are or where life situation has placed them. It is in your attitude towards people and how you treat them. Compassion is a Christ nature, so as a child of God you shouldn't struggle to be compassionate towards others. When you are compassionate towards other you become less judgmental, you see a need to spread more light of love. Compassion moves you to manifest love in deed. Love which is the father's command.
Father give me a heart of flesh. Help me Lord to be compassionate towards others. Open my eyes to see reasons to embrace others in love. Father forgive in anyway I have neglected your direction to be a blessing. Uproot every hate and judgmental spirit in me Lord in Jesus name, amen!

1JOHN 2:9-10; He that saith he is in the light, and hateth his brother, is in darkness even until now. He that loveth his brother abideth in the light, and there is none occasion of stumbling in him.
God is the foundation of love, and God is light. That is why God commands us to love because when we love we shine the light of Christ. Where there is light there is direction. Love is an evidence that you are a child of God. You can't shine the light with hate, in fact it will mislead you in the wrong direction. If you seek a fruitful path, a path as a shining light you have to live in love. Love can break barriers, no matter how strong hate is love will always prevail because where light is darkness can't comprehend. So don't give any room for hate, that is darkness trying to creep into your heart and overshadow you. Remember that whatever you do is not for earthly pleasure but for eternal reward and glory.
In the name of Jesus I am free from bondage of hate. I express faith through love. I spread the light of love in every place. I am an express image of my Father in heaven, He lives in me, His love dwells in me therefore darkness has no place in me in Jesus name, amen!

The enemy doesn't fear status, class or even effort. What he fear's is the spirit of God in you. One with God is a majority. Devil fears your relationship and right standing with God. Despite how many times Saul tried to kill David he failed because God was with Him. You have to grow pass just saying you know God to being a carrier of His presence. As a child of God, the evidence of your relationship and spiritual maturity will always be put to test. There have to be something that makes you different from the world. Having God in you and on your side is best thing that can ever happen to you.

1SAMUEL 17:39-40,49; 39  And David girded his sword upon his armour, and he assayed to go; for he had not proved it. And David said unto Saul, I cannot go with these; for I have not proved them. And David put them off him.And he took his staff in his hand, and chose him five smooth stones out of the brook, and put them in a shepherd's bag which he had, even in a scrip; and his sling was in his hand: and he drew near to the Philistine.And David put his hand in his bag, and took thence a stone, and slang it, and smote the Philistine in his forehead, that the stone sunk into his forehead; and he fell upon his face to the earth.

It Is not just enough to have to skill but to also have wisdom to apply it. David was wise enough to know that all the heavy armour weren't His skill so he rejected them. He wasn't worried about what people would say or think of him. He knew his capacity in the area of his skill. His skill was what God needed to use to bring the win. Now the skill sometimes may not be common, may look ordinary but when God's hand is upon it then extraordinary things happen. David skill was His armour.
O Lord my own crown shall flourish upon my head. O Lord give me grace to nurture my potential inside me. O Lord give me wisdom and divine insight to know when and how to apply my skill. O Lord shape me to what you want me to be. I shall not be limited by worldly assumptions and dictation. I receive unusual boldness to face challenges and come victorious in Jesus name, amen!

NUGGET: DIVINE SETTLEMENT
PSALM 68:10; Thy congregation hath dwelt therein: thou, O God, hast prepared of thy goodness for the poor.

There is a difference between a man trying to get settled and when God settles a man. How the message translation interpreted precisely the b part of the text it says "they went from rags to riches".This was evidently the hand of God. When God settles you He moves you from a nobody to somebody. When God blesses you He announces you for favour. It is not in how smart you are, or how well you can plan but by His grace alone. What is that area you feel you have tried all you can but yet to no avail, why not turn it over to God. He wants to settle you. Don't struggle on your own when His divine power has made everything readily available to you. He is able to change every rags to kingship garment.
O Lord set me up for good things. I gaze my eyes on you Lord fix me up. Father settle every troubled area of my life. Every satanic manipulation to frustrate my effort comes to an end today. I reject bitterness, I must eat the good fruit of the land. Wrong place and location will not trap my destiny. I enter into my divine place of rest.

THE PERSISTENT BELIEVE


Every time there is a challenge, in the natural sense the tendency to be doubtful and discouraged comes up. But you have to remind yourself of the reason why you made that decision, choose that path,why you won't give up ,most of all who you are in Christ. No matter the many reasons you have to quit ,keep saying what you want to see and take your eyes off what the situation pushes you to see. You must believe beyond the circumstances to be able to overcome it. Persistent believe is believing when you have every reason to quit.
It goes beyond believing in anything or just anyone but believing in the one true God. He is the hope of that future you look forward to. How ready you are to stay in the place of faith regardless of life's push shows in how much you believe. There is a reason why your faith is being tested, to see if your faith just in words or it is mixed with action. The trying of your faith isn't for you to quit but to be persistent in your believe. Look within and you will find many reasons to keep pushing further, the world awaits your manifestation!

1 SAMUEL 15:24; And Saul said unto Samuel, I have sinned: for I have transgressed the commandment of the LORD, and thy words: because I feared the people, and obeyed their voice.

It is okay to have cares and concerns but at the expense of obeying God's word is a no no. Saul had a command but He feared the people than he feared God. God's word is true, it is yea and amen. Means there is no blithering to His word. Stop fearing things and prioritizing relationship with people than you fear God. Put a check and rethink to those cares and concerns of yours that are making you loose your place with God. Don't let them push you in the wrong direction. Nothing is worth coming between you and God. Saul loosed His place of kingship in the sight of God by placing the creation above the Creator. Cares are to be placed at His feet not carried on your shoulder. if He told God of those cares and concern ,He would have gotten direction, right instruction and courage to do the right thing. He would have depended on God for by strength shall no man prevail.
O Lord I will not place my cares above you. Give me grace to follow you whole heartily. I refuse to move controlled by my fears and emotions but in faith and led by the spirit of truth in all things.
