THE CHOSEN DAILY DEVOTIONAL…THEME: GOD IS GOOD ALL THE TIME!



THE CHOSEN DAILY DEVOTIONAL…
DATE: Tuesday, October 31st, 2017.
TEXT: Psalm 103

THEME: GOD IS GOOD ALL THE TIME!
MEMORISE: Taste and see that the Lord is good. (Psalm 34:8a)

MESSAGE: 

Another month has ended and God has been faithful and merciful to the Chosen ones. He has seen us through from January till now and we have all reason to declare His goodness and mighty works. He has saved us from the evil that is prevalent all around us. Many have lost their properties, health, limbs and even life but we have been protected and even promoted to higher levels! Glory to God of Chosen!

Because of the Chosen ones God brought the economy of Nigeria out of recession after the declaration of His servant. God has provided for us and made sure that we lack no good thing. He has healed the sick amongst us and daily we hear testimonies of mighty deliverance from evil traps. He has made the weapons of armed robber to become powerless and made the token of ritualist to lie. 

He has made paupers to become instant millionaires. He has broken the yoke of bareness over and over again making many childless women to become happy mothers. He has made the blind to see, the deaf to hear, the dumb to speak, the lame to walk. He has risen the dead and given them a second chance at life. Most importantly of all he has given us genuine salvation through the undiluted word of God.

Indeed, God of Chosen has been good to us and he deserves our praise and adoration. We also need to spread the word of His goodness so that others may also come and taste that the Lord is good. It will be unfair if we keep the testimony of His goodness to ourselves. We need to invite others and proclaim to the end of the earth that of a truth God of Chosen is good all the time!

Worship/praise God and then take the following prayer points:

1. Thank you Lord for allowing me to see the end of another month and guiding me safely to this point of the year. I give you all praise and adoration.

2. I thank you for your wonderful works in my life and that of the entire church. I thank you for choosing us to shower your mercy, blessing and grace. We appreciate you.

3. Lord we commit the remaining two months into your hands. We decree that all of us shall make it safely to the new year in Jesus' name.

4. Dear Lord, preserve my G. O, Mummy in the Lord and their children. I plead a hedge of fire and your protection over them in Jesus’name.

32 YEARS BARRENNESS EXCHANGED WITH TWINS (BOYS)



The whole congregants were enraptured in Heavenly Bliss when the accompanying choristers sang the song "Onye ahụ merem ézé mụ ga-eme ya ézé, é zé ebighebi..., 

which is literally translated as, He that made me king, I'll make Him an Everlasting King". This was because of what the Lord did for the families of Mr and Mrs Jude Ezike from Ichida in Aniocha Local Government Area of Anambra State, Nigeria. The yoke of 32 years barrenness in their family was smashed and exchanged with two bouncing baby boys. This indeed called for great jubilation.

The sister whom the God of this Great commission smiled on got married at the age of 16 and throughout 32 years of her marriage, she was childless. Imagine the trauma she'd been through but thank God for the lovely husband, exceptionally different amongst men. 

He endured with the wife. He knew the wife was not barren that she's only waiting on God and at the appointed time, their stories would be turned around for good. He did not allow the pressure from his family being the only male child to weigh him down. He remained resolute in his faith in the Lord.

Our beloved sister had her first issue at the age of 48 which is almost at menopause; a natural phenomenon heaven does not respect as was the case of Sarah - Abraham's wife whom God blessed with child at an old age. In her words during her testimony, she said, "I knew I was not barren, I was only waiting on God, she also encouraged other sisters that are expectant to view their case like she did that at the appointed time, God would remember them".

You can watch the video below:




This confession really caught my attention and other worshippers. At God's stipulated time of remembrance, she's indeed honoured, not with just one baby but, two babies. One took after her and the second took after the husband. 

There is no lost hope in God. One with him surely have a future and a good one at that. He is a perfect God who reveals His glory through the ugly circumstances of men. 

Do you have ugly circumstance staring you at your face. May be your own case have degenerated into something that men have written you off or even you yourself have concluded that you will go with that problem. 

Hear me this day, the God that exchanged 32 years barrenness with two bouncing baby boys will remember you soon, as the world is celebrating our sister's testimony, yours shall follow suit in no distant time. Your testimony is the next to be published in Jesus’name.

THE CHOSEN DAILY DEVOTIONAL…THEME: THE WISDOM OF THIS WORLD IS FOOLISHNESS



THE CHOSEN DAILY DEVOTIONAL…
DATE: Monday, October 30th, 2017.
TEXT: 1 Corinthians 3:18-20
THEME: THE WISDOM OF THIS WORLD IS FOOLISHNESS

MEMORISE: But God hath chosen the foolish things of the world to confound the wise; and God hath chosen the weak things of the world to confound the things which are mighty. (1 Corinthians 1:27)
There is a way that seems right to man but the end of it is destruction. Many have forsaken God in today's world because they believe in the wisdom of man. They rather believe in the scientific theory that heaven and earth was a product of evolution rather than God's creative power. They believe that human beings evolved from apes or monkeys despite the fact that they can not explain the reason why some apes did not evolve into humans.

Science and technology has made many to question the existence of God. Scientist try to explain every miracle through logic or formula. Recently there was an article published by some scientist that said that there is a mysterious thing that is holding the earth together that does not allow the inhabitants of earth to fall off as the earth rotates on its axis. Normally we should have fallen off the face of the earth as it spins around the sun. They acknowledge that some force is holding the earth together but they are still trying to find out what that force is.

We that profess Christ do not need to do any ground-breaking research before we know what that force is. The Bible says that God holds the whole world in His hands. While they are still searching we are rest assured that our God is in control of the universe. Do not be carried away by the advance of technology or science. It can never take the place of God. Man can not create life neither can he live for ever or raise the dead.

Worship/praise God and then take the following prayer points:

1. O Lord God my Father, you are the awesome being of heaven. None can compare with you. Receive all adoration and praise, in Jesus' name.
2. Arise and execute judgment on your enemies, O Lord, in Jesus' name.
3. I decree that no weapon of the enemy formed against our G. O, Mummy in the Lord and their children shall prosper, in Jesus' name.

THE CHOSEN DAILY DEVOTIONAL…Theme: THE ENEMY HAS BEEN DEFEATED



THE CHOSEN DAILY DEVOTIONAL…
DATE: Sunday, 29th October, 2017.
TEXT: Psalm 27:1-6

Theme: THE ENEMY HAS BEEN DEFEATED
MEMORISE: For this purpose the Son of God was manifested, that he might destroy the works of the devil. (1John 3:8b)

MESSAGE:

Many Christians are running around and living in constant fear of their enemies. It is either a wicked uncle or aunty, a village strongman or woman, a neighbour, a co-worker, a friend turned enemy that is after their life or destiny. The truth is that we have only one real enemy and that is the devil. All the so called enemies that we see are only his agents that he uses to get things done. Once you can defeat the source of their power they also are defeated.

Jesus came so that He can destroy the works of the devil. He not only destroyed them but also made a public spectacle of them. He defeated the devil once and for all and collected the keys of death and hell from him. Glory hallelujah! We are on the Lords side and therefore are on the winning side. The devil nor his agents have no power over us. They can only try but they have no hold over us.

The bible says God has given us authority to trample on snakes and scorpions and to overcome all the power of the enemy and nothing can harm us. If God is for us who can be against us? His angels watch over us night and day. All you have to do is continue living right and maintain purity inside and outside and you will sit back and watch God avenge you of your enemies. He will set a table before you and anoint your head with oil in their very presence.

So do not be afraid because your enemies have already been defeated. They have lost the battle.

Worship/praise God and then take the following prayer points:

1. Thank you Lord for defeating all my known and unknown enemies and giving me victory over them, in Jesus' name.

2. I stand against every enemy waging war against me and command the Holy Ghost fire to consume them, in Jesus' name.

3. All the enemies of The Lords Chosen Charismatic Revival ministries receive fire of the Holy Ghost. I bind and cast you into the abyss in Jesus' name.

4. Any battle going on against our G. O, Mummy in the Lord and their children, end in defeat for the enemy, in Jesus' name.

THE CHOSEN DAILY DEVOTIONAL…THEME: EXPECT GOOD NEWS



THE CHOSEN DAILY DEVOTIONAL…
DATE: Saturday, October 28th, 2017)
TEXT: Luke 1:19

THEME: EXPECT GOOD NEWS
MEMORISE: And in the sixth month the angel Gabriel was sent from God unto a city of Galilee, named Nazareth. (Luke 1:26)

MESSAGE: 

As you engage in active work for the Lord, expect to receive miraculous blessings. One of God's programs for your life this month is to send an angel that will bring you good tidings. He sent this type of tidings to Elizabeth the mother of John the Baptist and Mary, the mother of Jesus Christ. Before then, His angels had embarked on similar assignments to the house of Abraham where they assuredly informed Sarah that by the same time during the next season she would deliver her baby. All these good tidings translated to reality and there were great rejoicing and jubilation. Even today, God is still sending angels to go and deliver good tidings unto His people. In the case of Mary, Angel Gabriel was sent to her in the sixth month of the year. Though this is the eleventh month, God will send His angel to bring you good tidings in the area of your business, marriage, career, vocation, academics, etc. Since no one knows the hour of His visitation; it makes sense to be in constant expectation.

God will definitely visit us to nourish us spirit, soul and body, in Jesus' name. What is it that you have been praying for over the years? Be in expectation! Which areas have you been expecting God's touch in your life? Do not lose hope. He is perfecting the plan to send an angel that will come and help you and nourish you. Luke 1:19 states, And the angel answering said unto him, I am Gabriel, that stand in the presence of God; and am sent to speak unto thee, and to shew thee these glad tidings. God is set to give you a divine spiritual experience that will translate all your dreams to reality. Just be in expectation.

Worship/praise God and then take the following prayer points:

1.
Any power monitoring my blessings to hinder, usurp, oppose, hijack or divert them; be destroyed by fire, in Jesus' name.
2. O God, release the angel of good tidings for my sake, in Jesus' name.
3. Reposition our G. O's and Mummy in the Lord's spiritual antenna for greater reception of spiritual signals, in Jesus name.

THE CHOSEN DAILY DEVOTIONAL…THEME: GOD WILL AVERT DISASTROUS END FOR YOU



THE CHOSEN DAILY DEVOTIONAL…
DATE: Friday, October 27th, 2017.
TEXT: Luke 17:32, Genesis 19:24

THEME: GOD WILL AVERT DISASTROUS END FOR YOU
MEMORISE: And God said unto Noah, The end of all flesh is come before me; for the earth is filled with violence through them; and, behold, I will destroy them with the earth. (Genesis 6:13)

MESSAGE: 

The bible records that at the point when the world had become very corrupt, God declared that the end of all flesh had come before Him. Subsequently, He destroyed the world with flood and only eight persons were saved in that flood which lasted for 150 days on the face of the earth. Since then the world has even become more corrupt than the first one as it devises newer ways of sinning against God. Without doubt, the sin of the world had gotten to God in heaven and He is determined to repay sinners for their wickedness. By the prophecies of the bible, it is certain that the world is about to face another disastrous end.

For any believer who is serious about escaping God's wrath that is to come, the most reasonable thing is to do everything possible to avert a disastrous end. That can only be possible when such believer is fully reconciled with God and living a life of holiness and righteousness. The program and plan of the devil for believers in Christ is that they would lose eternity and so, qualify for destruction. Having in mind this program of the devil for the believers, you must do everything possible to escape his clutches.
Check your life. The bible says that he that commits sin is of the devil. (1 John 3:8) Why? The devil sinned from the beginning and that is the reason for Jesus' unveiling. If you can align with Jesus Christ through genuine repentance, it means that you will escape the devil's ploy for a disastrous end for you.

Worship/praise God and then take the following prayer points:

1. Every disaster awaiting me; be averted by the grace of God, in Jesus' name.
2. Every program and plan of hell for me; be averted by Jesus' victory on the cross of Calvary, in Jesus' name.
3. Any 'ember month' disaster assigned against my life; be disbanded by fire, in Jesus' name.
4. Any evil determined against our G. O, Mummy in the Lord and their children; be averted, in Jesus' name.

THE CHOSEN DAILY DEVOTIONAL…THEME: BE A BLESSING TO OTHERS



THE CHOSEN DAILY DEVOTIONAL…
DATE: Thursday, October 26th, 2017.
TEXT: Deuteronomy 16:17

THEME: BE A BLESSING TO OTHERS

MEMORISE: And I will make of thee a great nation, and I will bless thee, and make thy name great; and thou shalt be a blessing. (Genesis 12:2)

MESSAGE: 

Many people erroneously think that you have to be rich or have extra before you can be a blessing unto others or even contribute towards church projects. Many that earn little deprive themselves of open heavens because they feel their income is too small to remove 10%. They do not know that the reason their income is not adequate for their needs is because they are under a curse and God has not blessed their efforts. The bible said that he that is faithful with little will be faithful in much while he that is dishonest in little will also be dishonest in much. Which tithe do you think is easier to pay N100 or N100 million? A person who cannot pay N100 on N1,000 income will not pay N100million on a N1billion income.

It is not the amount that you earn that matters but the spirit that operates within you. Some people have a stingy and selfish spirit which makes them to only want to be on the receiving end all the time. Some people in this category believe they are too poor to help anybody else. Help does not always have to be in the form of money. It can be in form of rendering a help, prayer or words of encouragement. Even some well to do brethren have this spirit. Their money is only for them and their immediate family. Even though God has blessed them they refuse to be a blessing unto others. This is very unfortunate.

God expects us to be a blessing unto others no matter the position you find yourself in, the old woman who fed Elijah for three years was poor. If she did not surrender her last meal to Elijah she and her son would have died after eating it themselves. The widow who donated her last two mites to the treasury trusted that God will provide for her needs and Jesus took note of her sacrifice. Brethren do not let stinginess and lack of trust rob you of your blessings. Surrender what you have and see if God is not faithful to fulfil his promise of supplying your needs.

Worship/praise God and then take the following prayer points:

1. Lord, give me the grace to be a blessing unto others so that they may experience your love through me, in Jesus' name.
2. I bind and cast out into the abyss every sprit of stinginess, selfishness, and doubt, in Jesus' name.
3. I ask for fresh empowerment upon our Daddy and Mummy in the Lord, in Jesus' name.

FROM ISLAM TO CHOSEN

FROM ISLAM TO CHOSEN


Isaac Ibrahim is from Kaduna State, Nigeria. He has been an ardent follower of Mohammed until he got converted to a Christian in The Lord's Chosen.

He was not thinking about sin and redemption, not until his present status. He was not worried about heaven and hell. Having a personal relationship with Jesus was only a distant suggestion of a thought. No, all he wanted was to follow Islamic dictates and manner of worship. Happy to say, however, these ideologies have  all treaded the easily-forgetful path of history.


THE CHOSEN DAILY DEVOTIONAL…THEME: YOU ARE THE SALT OF THE WORLD



THE CHOSEN DAILY DEVOTIONAL…
DATE: Wednesday, October 25th, 2017.
TEXT: Matthew 5:13

THEME: YOU ARE THE SALT OF THE WORLD

MEMORISE: 34 Salt is good: but if the salt have lost his savour, wherewith shall it be seasoned? 35 It is neither fit for the land, nor yet for the dunghill; but men cast it out. He that hath ears to hear, let him hear. (Luke 14:34-35)

MESSAGE: 

Salt is an important ingredient when cooking. Without it the food that is being prepared will have no flavour. It will be bland and tasteless. You can do without other seasonings but you can not prepare a delicious meal without adding salt. Aside from being a seasoning, it is also used as a preservative. If you rub salt on meat even if you do not put it in the fridge or freezer it will prevent it from spoiling. It is also a cleansing agent and can be used to wash off bacteria and germs. From the foregoing we can see that salt is a very useful and import ingredient.

It is therefore not surprising that Jesus likened believers as the salt of the world. We are supposed to add impact the world just the same way salt impacts the taste of food. When we are present in a situation we are supposed to make a difference in that environment. Just as salt is a preservative so also are we to preserve souls so that they will not end up in hell fire. We are also supposed to be a cleansing agent as we turn once impure hearts back towards their creator and make such hearts pure again.

However, if you open salt and put it on the shelf for a long period of time the air in the atmosphere will contaminate it and it will no longer be potent or useful for purpose. You will have to throw it away. The same goes for Christians who fail to impact their environment. Instead they leave themselves open to compromise. Instead of them impacting their world the world contaminates them and they are no longer useful for the kingdom. Such people will be casted away from God's presence on the last day. Are you performing your role as the salt of the world or has your salt lost its flavour and is no longer useful for the Master? It is time to examine yourself before it is too late.

Worship/praise God and then take the following prayer points:

1. Lord, give me the grace to be the salt of the world and not lose my flavour in Jesus' name.
2. Everything working against my ability to be a light to my generation; receive the fire of the Holy Ghost, in Jesus' name.
3. Holy Ghost help me to be an instrument/vessel worthy of the Master's use, in Jesus' name.
4. Any power on assignment to contaminate our G. Os and Mummy in the Lords anointing; I declare you a loser, in Jesus' name.

THE CHOSEN DAILY DEVOTIONAL…DON'T LOSE YOUR PLACE



THE CHOSEN DAILY DEVOTIONAL…
DATE: Tuesday, October 24th, 2017.
TEXT: Acts 1:16-26


THEME: DON'T LOSE YOUR PLACE

MEMORISE: Bring forth therefore fruits worthy of repentance, and begin not to say within yourselves, We have Abraham to our father: for I say unto you, That God is able of these stones to raise up children unto Abraham. (Luke 3:8)

MESSAGE: 

The way some people behave you will think that they are doing God a favour by serving Him. They grudgingly give their tithes and offering and complain when pledges are called for special projects. They also find it hard to offer their services to the church and always complained about others who serve willing. They find fault in almost everything that is going on in the church. Even when they pray to God they give Him ultimatum such as if He does not answer them within a particular time frame, they will stop coming to church or stop serving Him. If they stop serving Him who is the loser? Is it God that will lose out or they that will spend eternity in hell? God does not need anybody to be God. He has the power to wipe out all creation and create a whole new universe. We are the ones that are privileged to be called sons of God. When He sent the flood to wipe out humanity He only found 8 people that were worthy of being saved. 

He does not lower His standards to accommodate anybody. He wiped out the whole of Sodom and Gomorrah and spared only Lot and his household. When the Israelites rejected Jesus Christ He extended the offer of salvation to the Gentiles and made them heirs of Abraham. If you refuse to praise Him He has the power to raise stones in your place.

We must therefore be careful the way we approach God. While He is a merciful and compassionate God who enjoys our fellowship, He is not in any way needy or reliant on us. We should therefore approach His throne of grace with fear, awe and humility. 

It is very wrong for you to give God an ultimatum. I am very certain that no one can approach a King or President of a nation and begin to insolently ask for something and not expect to suffer some consequences. If you can't approach a fellow human being who happens to be in authority like that why would you approach the King of Kings and the Lord Almighty like that? Retrace your steps fast before you lose your place.

Worship/praise God and then take the following prayer points:

1. Dear Lord, I am sorry for any time I may have given you an ultimatum out of desperation or offered you an unworthy sacrifice. I ask that you forgive me and promise to give you the honour that you rightly deserve in Jesus' name.

2. I pray that our G. O, Mummy in the Lord and their entire family will retain their place in heaven, in Jesus' Name.

THE CHOSEN DAILY DEVOTIONAL…THEME: HE WILL KEEP YOU SAFE



THE CHOSEN DAILY DEVOTIONAL…
DATE: Monday, October 23rd, 2017.
TEXT: Psalm 91

THEME: HE WILL KEEP YOU SAFE
MEMORISE: Cast thy burden upon the Lord, and he shall sustain thee: he shall never suffer the righteous to be moved. (Psalm 55:6)

MESSAGE: 

It is easy to be fearful as one hears the news of what is happening all around the world. Every day it is a new story of terror and disaster. The heart of men has grown desperately wicked in these end times that when you hear of the atrocities committed nowadays you begin to wonder if indeed the perpetrators are human beings. Every day one goes out and comes back home safely is a reason to thank God. There is no safe place. Bombs are going off in the market places, robbers are attacking offices and homes, children and adults are being kidnapped off the streets, natural disasters are happening every day, fire outbreaks, accidents, murders, incurable and deadly diseases are spreading daily and economic recession etc.

Nevertheless, for people that are under God's protection we should not be like others that are fearful of what is happening around them. God has promised to be a place of refuge for those that trust and obey Him. He has promised us that we shall only see with our eyes the punishment of the wicked but that no harm will come near our dwelling. He has promised to keep our going in and coming out. He watches over us day and night so that no evil will befall us.

We have witnessed the fulfilment of this covenant in The Lord's Chosen. Countless number of testimonies abound of encounters with armed robbers where their weapons failed to harm Chosen ones after their declaration that they are Chosen. What about numerous people that fell into the hands of ritualists but were chased away when it became apparent that He that was in them was greater than the powers they were working with. Or is it the countless accidents that Chosen people came out not only as the only survivors but completely unscathed. How about kidnappers that have released countless members without collecting any ransom? It is therefore clear that when we happen to encounter any evil, it is an opportunity for the demonstration of God's power. We should therefore not be fearful when we happen to encounter any evil. We should remember His covenant of peace and blessing and be rest assured that He will see us through. He will keep us safe.

Worship/praise God and then take the following prayer points:

1. Dear Lord, I thank you for your covenant of peace, blessing and protection that you have with the Chosen ones and for always honouring your covenant in times of trouble.

2. Every spirit speaking fear and doubt, I silence you in Jesus' name.

3. I pray that you renew your covenant of peace and blessing with my G. O and Mummy in the Lord and grant them more grace and anointing in Jesus' name.

THE CHOSEN DAILY DEVOTIONAL…THEME: ITS TIME TO GO TO THE NEXT LEVEL


THE CHOSEN DAILY DEVOTIONAL…
DATE: Sunday, October 22nd, 2017.
TEXT: Genesis 1:26-28

THEME: ITS TIME TO GO TO THE NEXT LEVEL
Memorise: For the earnest expectation of the creature waiteth for the manifestation of the sons of God. (Romans 8:19)

MESSAGE: 

Stagnation is not in God's vocabulary. He wants you to keep on attaining new heights everyday and conquering new territories. You never should feel that you have arrived after achieving some level of success. Thank God for making you to achieve that height and get ready to move on to a new challenge. God created us to have dominion. His original plan was for us to dominate His creation. Consequently, that means that God has deposited a lot of potential in us which the average man fails to apply.

Many of us are just living an average life while the plan of God for us is to excel and dominate. We are satisfied with just having enough to care for our immediate families and a bit of excess for small pleasures. If only you know what God deposited in you and the untapped potential inside of you begging for expression! The bible says that they that know their God shall be strong and do exploits. It also tells us that creation is earnestly waiting for the manifestation of the children of God. These verses point to the fact that we are created for greatness. However, because many people are not connected to the source of power i.e. God, they fail to realize their potential.

We however, are connected to the source of power and have no excuse not to excel. It is not only on material level but also on the spiritual level. We should be making an impact wherever we find ourselves. The early apostles were described as people 'that were turning the whole world upside down'. As small as they were, they made such a great impact wherever the went that their fame went all over the world. Daniel and his friends were ten times better than their peers that ate at the kings table. This is what happens when a person aligns himself with God. It is time for Chosen ones to start making an impact in our environment. We have already started but it's time to go to the next level. We have been called to dominate our world.

Worship/praise God and then take the following prayer points:

1. Every spirit of complacency and slothfulness causing me not to reach my full potential; be dethroned by the fire of the Holy Ghost.

2. By the power in the spoken word of God, I command the power for fruitfulness and dominion to be activated in my life, in Jesus' name.

3. Dear Lord, I ask for extraordinary grace upon our G. O and Mummy in the Lord to operate in the supernatural, in Jesus' name.

THE CHOSEN DAILY DEVOTIONAL…THEME: REJOICE IN THE LORD ALWAYS



THE CHOSEN DAILY DEVOTIONAL…
DATE: Friday, October 20th, 2017.
TEXT: Philippians 4:4

THEME: REJOICE IN THE LORD ALWAYS

MEMORISE: neither be ye sorry; for the joy of the LORD is your strength. (Nehemiah 8:10b)

MESSAGE: 

The bible tells us that the joy of the Lord is our strength. This means that as Christians we should continually rejoice in the Lord. No matter the circumstances you find yourself in you, have been commanded to rejoice. This is because the assurance that we have in Christ for a glorious future far outweighs any temporary discomfort or pain we might be facing presently. 

Aside from this, the fact that God has promised to give us victory, it is also a cause for us to rejoice. He has promised never to forsake or leave us. He has promised that whatever we ask for in His name shall be granted as long as we are obedient to His word. When we are sad, we allow the devil to introduce evil thoughts that will lead us away from Christ. 

He will make us feel discouraged and then tempt us to look for solutions outside Christ. That is why we must remain joyful and thankful always. We draw our strength in times of trouble from the assurance that we have in God that what He promised, He will surely do. He is not man that He should lie nor the son of man that He should repent. He will surely deliver on His promises if we do not faint or grow weary.

In times of trouble, we should look back and reflect on all the past benefits we have received from the Lord just like the psalmist. We can also draw inspiration from what He has done in the lives of others and thank Him for His mercy and grace towards us even when we are undeserving. When you thank God for the past blessings He will be moved to do more. But when we are sad and refuse to acknowledge His goodness because of temporary setbacks, 

He will not be pleased with us. He was angry with the Israelites of old because they always forgot His mercy towards them as soon as they encountered a fresh obstacle. They were very ungrateful. Their thanks lasted as long as things were going smoothly. Once challenges appeared they will start to murmur. We should not be like them; we should praise God always and never forget His benefits. Rejoice always for we have assurance of a glorious future as long as we do not faint.

Worship/praise God and then take the following prayer points:

1.
Make a list of all the wonderful things that God has done for you in time past and thank Him for them one by one.
2. God fill me with your oil of gladness so that I will always be joyful in your presence, in Jesus' name.
3. I thank you Lord for what you are doing in the midst of the Chosen and for your grace upon my G. O and Mummy in the Lord, in Jesus' name.

THE CHOSEN DAILY DEVOTIONAL…THEME: BY THEIR FRUITS YOU SHALL KNOW THEM



THE CHOSEN DAILY DEVOTIONAL…

DATE: Thursday, October 19th, 2017.
TEXT: Luke 6:43-44

THEME: BY THEIR FRUITS YOU SHALL KNOW THEM
MEMORISE: Wherefore by their fruits ye shall know them. (Matthew7: 20)

MESSAGE: 

There are so many people claiming to be Christians today peddling different doctrines of grace, liberty and freedom that if one is not grounded in the word it is easy to be deceived. The good thing is that the bible foretold these times so that it will not take us by surprise. Indeed, there are many teachings today that encourage people to continue to live a godless life while still claiming to be born again. They have removed the transforming/redemption power of the gospel from their messages and propagate the deception that nobody can live a pure or holy life despite the fact that God commanded that we should be holy even as He is holy. God will not tell us to do something that He knows is not possible. His commands are not burdensome or grievous.

Many people have fallen prey to these preachers of false doctrine and they believe they are in the right place. How can one know for sure that a place is a place of true worship? The bible says that by their fruits you shall know them. A good tree can not bear bad fruit and a bad tree can not bear good fruit. There is no argument about this. You can not go to an apple tree and expect to pluck oranges or mangoes. The fruit of a tree is the direct product of what type of tree it is. When you see a congregation that most of its members are corrupt, sexually immoral, thieves, drunkards and given to riotous living you can be sure that they are products of a bad tree. 

We give glory to God that in The Lord's Chosen we can bear witness to the product of good fruits. We see sinners transforming their lives. Former robbers, herbalists, assassins, prostitutes, drug and alcohol addicts, homosexuals, etc, are now evangelists, intercessors, pastors and committed workers in the church. Ordinary members carry with them power to perform miracles such as healing the sick and raising the dead. The proud have become humble. People outside grudgingly admit that Chosen is different. As a chosen, you must make sure that you continue to bear good fruit so that you will be a good ambassador of Christ and the church wherever you go. Let people see Christ in you always.

Worship/praise God and then take the following prayer points:

1. Lord, give me the grace to continue to bear good fruits all the days of my life, in Jesus' name.
2. Every place preaching false doctrine that is leading people astray catch fire in Jesus' name.
3. Thank you Lord for my G. O and Mummy in the Lord and I pray that you give them the grace to continue to bear good fruits, in Jesus' name.

THE CHOSEN DAILY DEVOTIONAL…



THE CHOSEN DAILY DEVOTIONAL…
DATE: Wednesday, October 18th, 2017.
TEXT: 1 Timothy 2:1-4
THEME: ITS TIME TO STAND IN THE GAP
MEMORISE: Also I heard the voice of the Lord, saying, Whom shall I send, and who will go for us? Then said I, Here am I; send me. (Isaiah 6:8)

MESSAGE: 

The whole world is in turmoil. Everywhere you look, there is disaster and crisis. There is nowhere that is at peace. Stories of daily terrorist attacks all over the world in both developed and developing nations, natural disasters such as earthquakes, hurricanes, flooding and tsunamis, etc, have become common place, rumours of war and senseless killings all over the world. In addition, we hear of new deadly incurable and highly infectious diseases that have the potential to wipe out whole populations if care is not taken. Even the places people used to think were places of security and refuge are no longer at ease. If you turn on the news, it is bad news all day and nowhere is at peace.

A discerning Christian who is spiritually sensitive should know that this is the beginning of sorrow that Jesus foretold us about shortly before His death. All the signs are there. It also means that the end is near and time is running out for humanity. Despite all the warning signs, multitudes are still living their lives as if there is nothing at stake. In fact, many have left the faith and are now atheists who say they don't believe there is a God or that He is coming back.

 They don't believe in heaven or hell. There are others who claim to be Christians who believe that their coming to church everyday has guaranteed them a spot in heaven. Some of such people are our family and friends. It is time for every true believer to stand in the gap and start interceding for the lost souls. We have a duty to rescue the perishing just as we too were rescued. You are saved not just for yourself but so that you can join in saving other lost souls. We should have the mind of Christ who when he saw the lost souls was moved with compassion and toiled day and night to see that many were saved. God will require the blood of all those we could have preached to but didn't, from us. From today, let us make a commitment to actively stand in the gap, intercede, search and recover lost souls all over the world.

Worship/praise God and then take the following prayer points:

1. Dear Lord, I pray for all my family, friends and colleagues that are yet to be saved and pray that you soften their hearts so that they may be receptive towards your word, in Jesus' name.

2. Dear Lord, I commit my country and our leaders into your hands. Give them wisdom and let the fear of the Lord come upon them so that they will govern your people justly, in Jesus' name.

3. Father, decorate our Daddy and Mummy in the Lord with the anointing that no problem can intimidate, in Jesus' name!
