THE CHOSEN DAILY DEVOTIONAL...THEME: UNFORGIVENESS IS A BARRIER TO JOY



THE CHOSEN DAILY DEVOTIONAL...

DATE: Friday, January 19 , 2018.

TEXT: Matthew 18: 21-35

THEME: UNFORGIVENESS IS A BARRIER TO JOY

MEMORISE: “14 Follow peace with all men, and holiness, without which no man. 15 shall see the Lord: Looking diligently lest any man fail of the grace of God; lest any root of bitterness springing up trouble you, and thereby many be defiled.” ( Hebrew 12:14-15)

MESSAGE: 
Unforgiveness is a trap that the devil is using to ensnare many Christians today. It is true that many people have been offended in unimaginable ways. For example, some have had their reputation soiled by the lies of others which cause untold heart break and shame. Others have had their life savings stolen or defrauded by people they trusted and are now living in penury and suffering. 

Others have been denied critical help from people that could easily have given them that life saving help in time of need while others still have suffered many losses including life at the hands of other. Nobody can say that these things are not extremely painful especially when they have been caused by people we trusted and loved. 

It is because of examples such as these that many believe that unforgiveness can be justified in some instances and may not be counted against them. Nothing can be further from the truth.

In spite of the painful nature of offense, God has commanded us to forgive our offenders unconditionally. He expects us to forgive the person whether he or she deserves forgiveness or not even when the person maybe unrepentant. He also

does not expect us to seek revenge or retribution. God is not asking us for

something that He himself is not prepared to do. He forgave us all our sins no

matter how grievous they seem. He is willing to welcome the most vilest sinner once he truly repents. The Bible says that He forgave us while we were still sinners. What He forgave us for cannot be compared to what others have done to us.

When we refuse to forgive those that have wronged us we are not only sinning against God, we are also harming ourselves. This is because unforgiveness breeds bitterness. Have you ever seen a happy bitter man before? Of course not. 

So, you are robbing yourself of joy. It has also been scientifically proven that unforgiveness causes many physical ailments ranging from headaches to ulcers and even some cancers. There is a saying that unforgiveness is like drinking poison and expecting someone else to die. We must therefore forgive one another no matter the offence. Forgive and let God work out your vindication. Any other way will rob you of your joy.

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

1. Lord, give me the mind of Christ and grace to forgive even those things that seem hard to forgive.

2. Let your peace and joy that surpasses human understanding be my portion in Jesus name

3. I thank you Lord for the grace you have given my G. O and Mummy in the Lord to forgive those that offend them, I pray for more grace for them in Jesus name

THE CHOSEN DAILY DEVOTIONAL...THEME: CONTENTMENT BRINGS JOY



THE CHOSEN DAILY DEVOTIONAL...

DATE: Thursday, January 18 , 2018.

TEXT: Philippians 4:11-13

THEME: CONTENTMENT BRINGS JOY

MEMORISE: “But godliness with contentment is great gain.” (1 Timothy 6:6)


MESSAGE: 

Many people are not content with their situation and circumstances. It is important that we define what we mean by contentment in this context. Contentment means being grateful and appreciative of what we have been given. Acontented person is joyful and has serenity even when things may not be going his or her way. Contentment does not mean that you should not aim for a higher level or strive to rise above your present circumstances and improve your lot in life. You can always aspire and seek progress without being discontented and disgruntled.

Lack of contentment is evident in the life of a Christian who is always prone to murmuring and complaining. Just like the Israelites of old who always complained and murmured even after receiving from God, a discontented Christian never sees any reason to praise God for His blessings upon his life.

They see God's blessing not as a gift of mercy but their God given right. They often think that the blessing is too small or ordinary. For example, they don't see good health or life as a blessing so they don't feel they should be grateful for such blessings.

They also have the tendency to compare their situation/circumstances to other people. If they hear that a fellow brethren has been blessed with something they desire, instead of giving God the glory and trusting God to do the same for them they grow angry and weary to the point of losing faith. Discontentment has caused many to go astray and get into trouble as they try to achieve their desires outside of God's will.

Aperson who lacks contentment is a sure candidate for sorrow. On the contrary a person who is contented will find joy even when the going is tough. Let us follow the example of Apostle Paul who wrote that whatever circumstance he found himself in, either good or bad, he had learned to be content. That should be our goal as we journey towards home. In all things let us be contented so we can experience the joy of the Lord.

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

1. Holy Spirit, I pray that you will give me a mind of contentment so that I can appreciate all the blessings and goodness of the Lord in my life.

2. I rebuke the spirit of ungratefulness and entitlement that makes me take the goodness of the Lord in vain in Jesus name.

3. I pray for contentment in the body of Christ and decree that all striving and envy shall cease in Jesus name

4. Dear Lord, I pray that my G. O and Mummy in the Lord and their family; that all their needs be met and your peace and contentmentabide with them forever more, in Jesus name.

THE CHOSEN DAILY DEVOTIONAL...THEME: WAIT FOR GOD'S TIMING



THE CHOSEN DAILY DEVOTIONAL...

DATE: Wednesday, January 17 , 2018.

TEXT: Psalm 40:1-4

THEME: WAIT FOR GOD'S TIMING

MEMORISE: “For the vision is yet for an appointed time, but at the end it shall speak, and not lie: though it tarry, wait for it; because it will surely come, it will not tarry.” (Habakkuk 2:3)

MESSAGE: 

One Christian virtue we must all learn to cultivate is patience. Impatience has led many to go astray and end up in sorrow. As human beings, especially these days where we live in a culture of instant gratification, it is difficult to wait for unspecified amount of time for God to answer our prayers. We want it now without delay and tend to get discouraged when we don't see any signs of it coming to pass soon. This in turn causes sorrow and depression.

It is important for us to know that God's way are not our ways neither does His timing always align with ours. He will not give you something until He knows that you are ready for it. Sometimes it is not God that is delaying our answers but rather our disobedience and unwillingness to follow His leading are what delay our breakthrough.

 However, sometimes even when we are faithfully serving Him, He might decide to delay our answers till the timing is right. We have to trust that our Heavenly Father knows what is best for us at any given time. In addition, because He knows the future and is privy to knowledge we don't know, His timing will be in our best interest,

Impatience can only lead us into sorrow and trouble. When we try to run faster than God we only end up at a dead end or in a ditch. Trust Him and His judgment that He has our best interest at heart. As a parent, you will not buy a car for your ten-year-old no matter how much you love him and can afford to do so. You know that giving him such a gift at that age will lead to his untimely death because he does not yet have the capacity to make the right judgement behind the wheels at that tender age.

 Just as we know when it is the right time to give our children certain gifts, God knows when it is the right time to give us our desired breakthrough. Be patient. As long as you are serving Him in truth and spirit be rest assured that God will make sure He fulfils His promise concerning you in due course.

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

1. Holy Spirit, grant me patience as I wait upon you for the fulfilment of your word in my life, in Jesus name.

2. Dear Lord, let me not stray away from your presence or look for short cuts that will truncate my walk with you, in Jesus name.

3. Oh Lord, grant my G. O and Mummy in the Lord peace of mind and divine patience throughout their walk with you, in Jesus name.

THE CHOSEN DAILY DEVOTIONAL... THEME: EXPERIENCE THE JOY OF GENEROSITY



THE CHOSEN DAILY DEVOTIONAL...

DATE: Tuesday, January 16 , 2018.
TEXT: 2 Corinth 9:6-10
THEME: EXPERIENCE THE JOY OF GENEROSITY

MEMORISE: “I have shewed you all things, how that so labouring ye ought to support the weak, and to remember the words of the Lord Jesus, how he said, It is more blessed to give than to receive.” ( Acts 20:35)

MESSAGE: 

There is joy in serving others. When Jesus came to the world, He derived joy in obeying God and going around and doing good for humanity. He went around preaching the gospel and healing the sick and broken hearted. 

There were times that He forgot to eat and His disciples had to urge Him to rest and eat. His reply was that doing the will of His Father was bread for Him. This goes to show that He found joy and fulfilment in being a blessing to others. As true disciples of Christ we should follow in His example.

When God blesses you, He does not mean it for you to enjoy the blessing alone. He expects that you in turn will be a good steward of the resources that He has bestowed on you and be a blessing unto others. When you do this, He will be encouraged to bless you more. He charged the Israelites to remember the poor amongst them. 

He wants you to be your brother's keeper. While we are commanded to preach the good news to all people we should also be committed to meet not only their spiritual needs but their physical needs as well. Jesus hinted that on the last day all the help you rendered to the sick and needy will be remembered and counted as righteousness and vice versa. 

The early apostles also were known to share all their possessions with one another without holding back. We too should be generous with the gifts that God gave each of us for God loves a cheerful giver.

There is also a a certain joy that accompanies giving. When you genuinely and ungrudgingly help others in their time of need, you also are rewarded with an inner joy and satisfaction that you were a blessing to someone and by so doing were an example of God's love towards that person. Remember the Bible tells us that it is more blessed to be give than to receive. Let us be committed to being generous to others so that we not only spread joy buy experience the joy of giving.

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

1. I thank you Lord for the numerous blessings that you have showered upon me and my family.
2. Give me the grace to be a cheerful giver and a blessing to others.
3. Dear Lord, may my hand never lack and may I be daily be replenished in Jesus name
4. Dear Lord, I pray that your blessings shall increase daily in the life of my G. O and Mummy in the Lord as they go around the world being a blessing to many in Jesus name
5. I decree that my G. O and Mummy in the Lord will never lack any good thing and that you will grant the desires of their hearts in Jesus name.

THE CHOSEN DAILY DEVOTIONAL...THEME: GUARD YOUR HEART



THE CHOSEN DAILY DEVOTIONAL...

DATE: Monday, January 15 , 2018.

TEXT: Matthew 15:16-20

THEME: GUARD YOUR HEART

MEMORISE: “A wise man's heart is at his right hand but a fool's heart at his left.” (Ecclesiastes 10:2)

MESSAGE: 
The heart is the most important part of the human body. Once the heart stops beating, life ceases and it will be the end of the person's physical existence. Likewise, in spiritual terms the heart is also very important. The Bible tells us that the heart is where the issues of life flow from. Our diet affects the condition of our physical hearts. If you eat healthy nutritious whole foods your heart will be in good condition and it will serve you well. 

On the other hand if you eat junk processed foods all the time, your heart will be adversely affected and may give up functioning prematurely. It has been scientifically proven that consistently eating fruits and vegetables on a daily basis can reverse heart disease without the use of medication.

Similarly, we must be careful with what we feed our spiritual hearts with. What ways do we feed our heart and soul spiritually? Its by what we see, hear, say and believe. 

We must guard against pollution and contamination by ensuring that we constantly feed our hearts with a healthy diet of God's word every day. We should also be very careful about what we watch, read, and listen to. Do not spend your time listening to worldly music or watching worldly movies and expect to maintain righteousness and purity. 

The message and imaging that you have allowed into your heart will subtly start to influence and guide your behaviour. You should also not surround yourself with friends or things that constantly say or promote messages that are contrary to the word of God. For example there is an ongoing debate about whether or not one should pay tithes. 

The word of God is unequivocal about this. Tithing is a biblical commandment of God. Do not get involved in such debates but rather seek God's word for your guidance on the matter. Listening to such debates has the potential to deceive and confuse you.

It is therefore our duty to make sure that we feed our hearts with God's word and holy thoughts and not allow any undue influences to affect our spiritual growth and well-being. What is in our hearts is what ultimately cumulates in our outward behaviour. It is what influences our faith. If we want to successfully run our race here with the aim of finishing well and receiving a joyful welcome on judgment day, it is very important that we guard our hearts jealously.

Worship/praise God and then take the following prayerpoints:

1. I commit my body, heart and soul into thy hands. Give me the grace to diligently seek the things that make for spiritual growth in Jesus name.

2. I bind every negative influence that seeks to contaminate my heart and soul and cast them into the abyss in Jesus name.

3. Dear Lord I plead for a hedge of fire to surround my G. O and Mummy in the Lord and their children so that no harm will befall them, in Jesus name.

THE CHOSEN DAILY DEVOTIONAL...THEME: GOD ANSWERS PRAYERS



THE CHOSEN DAILY DEVOTIONAL...

DATE: Sunday, January 14 , 2018.
TEXT: Matthew 7:7-11
THEME: GOD ANSWERS PRAYERS

MEMORISE: “Be careful for nothing; but in every thing by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God.” (Philippians 4:6)

MESSAGE:

The first thing a new comer sees when they first come to The Lord’s Chosen is a sign over the pulpit that boldly proclaims that 'The God of Chosen Answers Prayers'. Many Christians today do not believe this assertion to be true.

They have prayed over a particular issue for years and have not received an answer. They have lost faith and believe that the Bible is just a fairy tale. They don't believe in miracles even when they hear of such. They believe that most are staged or at best a product of 'juju', black magic or demonic influences. This is ironic because this means they believe in demons but not the power of God!

Unfortunately, the state of many churches today where most are just glorified business centres offering motivational pep talks or occultist centres makes it difficult to blame them.

However, in The Lord's Chosen where the undiluted word of God is preached daily and holiness and righteousness the watch word, every word in the Bible is held as truth and obeyed.

This in turn has made God to honour His word that whatever we ask for in Jesus name shall be granted. We can boldly say that the God of Chosen answers prayers. Indeed, the caption on our logo that's says, “Power as of old' is a reality in The Lord’s Chosen. Countless of barren women who have been barren for years and have given up hope are now mothers of children.

The terminally ill who were written off by medical science are now healthy and living well. The poor have had their story changed and are now millionaires and billionaires. Those that were once in captivity or danger are delivered daily when they cry out to the God of Chosen. We have undeniable proof that God answers prayers which results in joy unspeakable.

However, to experience all the above, you must commit to righteous living. You need to live a life of purity inside and outside. You must give God your undivided attention and service and obey Him. It is only then that you can approach His throne with assurance of receiving your heart's desire.

You must also have unwavering faith that what He promised to do, He can do. If you do these things, you too will surely have reason to declare, The God of Chosen Answers Prayers!

Worship/praise God and then take the following prayerpoints:

1. Dear Father, thank you for answered prayers in Jesus name
2. I bind and cast into the bottomless pit every sprit of doubt, unrighteousness, and disobedience that will make God close His ears to my prayers, supplications and petitions, in Jesus name.
3. Dear Lord, let your unction upon my G.O and Mummy in the Lord increase daily in Jesus Name

THE CHOSEN DAILY DEVOTIONAL..THEME: SPREAD THE GOOD NEWS




THE CHOSEN DAILY DEVOTIONAL...

DATE: Saturday, January 13, 2018.

TEXT: John 4: 7-39

THEME: SPREAD THE GOOD NEWS

MEMORISE: “And He said unto them, Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature.” ( Mark 16:7)

MESSAGE: 
When you experience the goodness of God that makes for joyful existence, you are obligated to spread the good news to others so that they too can come in contact with the truth and experience a turnaround in their situation. It is an act of selfishness when you do not share your testimony with others.

There are many examples in the Bible where people that had an encounter with Jesus ran to tell others about their experiences and by so doing drew other people to the Lord. One of such was the Samaritan woman Jesus met by the well. After her encounter with Jesus, she was so excited that she left her water-pot at the well and ran to the city to tell others of her encounter.

Her testimony made many Samaritans who were traditionally enemies of the Jews to follow her to hear Jesus preach. It is recorded that many of them became converted because of the initial testimony of the woman even though they later confessed that after hearing from Jesus himself they believed Him based on His own words.

The point however is that it was the woman's initial testimony that resulted in them having contact with the Lord in the first place. If she had not shared her testimony it is possible that the town may not have had the opportunity to hear from Jesus directly.

We can therefore see that it is important to spread the good news. It is unfortunate that people are more prone to sharing bad news or gossip than good news that will bring a positive changes in peoples lives.

This should not be so for believers. Have you taken time to share the mighty wonders of the God of Chosen with your colleagues in the office or your place of business? Have you told your family and friends that are not yet saved about how people are being healed and delivered on a daily basis? Or is your discussions about politics, sports or the latest news that is trending? As beneficiaries of God's bountiful blessings, it is our duty to spread the news so that others around us can be partakers of God's joy that He has so graciously bestowed on us.

We should remember that Jesus mandated us to go out to the ends of the earth and spread the gospel. By obeying this command, He will further give us more reasons to be joyful.

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

1. Holy Spirit, give me the boldness to spread the gospel in and out of season so that others may encounter your goodness, in Jesus name.

2. I bind and cast out every sprit of timidity that makes sharing the word difficult for me, in Jesus name.

3. May your Spirit strengthen our G. O and Mummy in the Lord so that they can continue to spread the gospel all over the world, in Jesus name.

THE CHOSEN DAILY DEVOTIONAL...THEME: IN HIS PRESENCE THERE IS FULLNESS OF JOY



THE CHOSEN DAILY DEVOTIONAL...

DATE: Friday, January 12 , 2018.

TEXT: 1 Samuel 1:9-18

THEME: IN HIS PRESENCE THERE IS FULLNESS OF JOY

MEMORISE: “Thou wilt shew me the path of life: in thy presence is fulness of joy; at thy right hand there are pleasures for evermore.” ( Psalm 16:11) There are serval things that cannot stand in the presence of God. For example, no unclean or unholy thing can come into His presence. 

Another thing that cannot stay in His presence is sorrow. When a child of God comes into the presence of God to unburden his heart, he cannot go back sorrowful the way he came. Remember that He does not call the seed of Jacob to seek Him in vain.

Our reading today is a good example for how being in His presence drives away our sorrow and fears. Hannah had been barren for a long time and must have resigned herself to a life without children. While her husband, Elkanah, showed her love despite her inability to bear him children, she was not so lucky when it came to her co-wife, Peninnah who constantly provoked her to tears because she was barren. The situation was so bad that Hannah left the place where all of them were celebrating the yearly feast and ran into the presence of God in the temple to cry out all her pain and frustration. 

She was so grieved in her sprit that Eli the priest thought she was drunk. When she explained her situation to him, he as an oracle of God told her to go in peace and asked that God grant her petition. It is recorded in the Bible that she 'went her way, and did eat, and her countenance was no more sad'. That is what time in God's presence can do to the weary and broken hearted. It turns sorrow to joy.

What sorrow are you going through presently that makes you feel that there is no longer hope for you and you feel discouraged? Its time to take such matters to God's presence. It can never survive His touch. No wonder the psalmist proclaimed that in His presence there is fullness of joy. Remember that He asked all that are heavy laden to bring their burdens to Him and He will give them rest.

Stop trying to solve your problems by yourself. Come into His presence and cast all your troubles and fear at His feet and receive instead joy unspeakable and the answer to your situation. Only in His presence can true joy be found. Its time to approach His presence with full assurance that He will grant you peace just like he did for Hannah and all that approach His throne of grace with faithful expectation.

Worship/praise God and then take the following prayerpoints:

1. Dear Lord, I come into your presence today with full expectation that you will fill my cup with an oil of gladness and take away all my fears.

2. Every spirit of spiritual slothfulness that keeps me away from your presence receive Holy Ghost fire, in Jesus name.

3. I pray for the grace for my G. O and Mummy in the Lord to remain in your presence always in Jesus name.

ONLY GOD CAN DO THIS!!! TERRIBLE BREAST CANCER HEALED ON HER FIRST DAY IN CHOSEN.


Doctors and herbalists has failed to proffer solution to this sad development. Rather they subject the victims to chemotherapies and maintenance drugs then they gradually die. 


BREAST CANCER is considered one of the deadliest terminal ailment ravaging humanity today.


 Doctors and herbalists has failed to proffer solution to this sad development. Rather they subject the victims to chemotherapies and maintenance drugs then they gradually die. 


Just like HIV AIDS cancer has been responsible for the death of lots of prominent personalities in our societies. 


The poor is not left out too. 


Our government has failed to tackle this sad development but God is not silent.



THERE IS SOLUTION FROM ABOVE AND TODAY MRS STELLA EGBOM IS TESTIFYING TO THAT FACT.


What is difficult with men is very much possible with God. Mrs Stella was diagnosed with breast cancer and the ailments took her to different hospitals in search of solution but all they could do for her was chemotherapy and maintenance drugs but all was a futile effort as her health kept deteriorating. 


All hope seemed lost until the day she stepped her foot into THE LORD'S CHOSEN CHARISMATIC REVIVAL MINISTRIES. ABIA STATE HEADQUARTERS.


 As pastor was praying from the pulpit her case was mentioned and that was the end of the cancer that nearly claimed her life.

Are you suffering from such sickness or even a worse affliction come to CHOSEN today. 


Don't waste another minute in doubt and unbelief. 


God of Chosen is waiting for you. God is still in the business of healing and deliverance.

As you come He will visit you in Jesus name, Amen.

THE CHOSEN DAILY DEVOTIONAL...THEME: HIS WORD BRINGS JOY




THE CHOSEN DAILY DEVOTIONAL...

DATE: Thursday, January 11 , 2018.
TEXT: Acts 8:5-8
THEME: HIS WORD BRINGS JOY

MEMORISE: “Thy word is a lamp unto my feet, and a light unto my path” Psalm 119:105

MESSAGE: 

The word of God is full of power. By His word he created the heavens and the earth and all that is within it. Everything aspect of nature we see was created by His spoken word. His word also shines light where hitherto was darkness. His word also brings healing and deliverance. We can always rely on His word because it is the truth and it does not lie.

For every situation that we find ourselves in and for every question we have about life His word contains the answer. Are you needy? His word says he will provide for all our needs. Are you barren? His word says the righteous shall bear fruit even in old age. Are you sick? His word says that by His stripes you are healed. 

Are you in captivity and require deliverance? His word says even the lawful captive and prey of the terrible shall be delivered. Are you worried about the future? His word says that his thoughts towards us are good and not evil to bring us to an expected end. Are you fearful? His word says fear not. There are many more answers and words of assurance that God has made available to guide us through our earthly journey. We only need to search the scriptures and have faith that He that promised is faithful to bring His word to pass.

We should therefore be joyful that for every situation we may find ourselves God has made adequate provision for our breakthrough and deliverance. All life questions can be found in His word. For us to be able to remain joyful at all times we need to make sure that we diligently study His word and make it part of us. When we know God's mind concerning a situation we are better prepared to do His will and face life's challenges with the assurance that He will see us through.

We should therefore let His word be a source of joy and comfort to us. We are fortunate to have free access to His word. In some parts of the world, Bible are prohibited and people have to hide to read it in order not to be thrown in jail. We should therefore be thankful that we can freely read his word. Let His word be your source of joy from hence forth.

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

1. Lord, give me a specific word that will turn my situation around for good in Jesus name.
2. Let your word shine light into every area of darkness in my life in Jesus name
3. I bind every spirit of doubt and disbelief that will not allow your word to be effective in my life. I also rebuke every sprit that makes reading your word tedious in Jesus name
4. I pray that my G. O and Mummy in the Lord will continue to receive a new word from you for the advancement of the gospel in Jesus name

THE CHOSEN DAILY DEVOTIONAL...THEME: STOP LOOKING FOR JOY IN THE WRONG PLACES



THE CHOSEN DAILY DEVOTIONAL...
DATE: Wednesday, January 10, 2018.
TEXT: Judges 16:1-21

THEME: STOP LOOKING FOR JOY IN THE WRONG PLACES
MEMORISE: “There is a way which seemeth right unto a man, but the end thereof are the ways of death.” ( Proverbs 14:12)

MESSAGE: 

The devil is a very crafty and subtle creature. He uses the illusion of joy and pleasure to enslave many and send them to a place of utter darkness and everlasting sorrow and torture. I pray this shall never be your portion in Jesus name! We must therefore be vigilant and sober at all times and remain in the presence of God so that our joy will not be turned into sorrow.

Our Bible passage for today is a good example of how the devil can deceive/lure people into seeking joy in wrong places. Samson was destined from birth to be a great man of God. His parents were told that no razor should touch His head and he was to deliver His people from the hands of their oppressors, the Philistines. 

However, it seems as if Samson was more interested in pursuing pleasures than obeying God. While he was a thorn in the flesh of the Philistines, He provoked them more out of sport than in obedience to God's word. He sought pleasure in the hands of foreign women and prostitutes contrary to God's express commandments that they should not marry outside the tribes of Israel and against his parents' plea. Most of the things recorded in the Bible about Samson portrays 

him as a man whose main priority was not the things of God but to seek pleasure or self-gratification. He led a reckless life and ended up marrying a Philistine woman who later betrayed him for money. And while God was gracious enough to grant him his last wish of avenging himself of his enemies, he spent his last days as a blind powerless slave toiling at the grinding mills and dying the same death like his enemies. What a pity.

This is the same fate that befalls many when they seek joy in the wrong places. To be clear, anywhere outside Christ Jesus, is the wrong place to look for true and everlasting joy. Joy cannot be found in money, fame, possessions, position of power etc. There are millions of examples of people that have all these things but are not joyful. Only one person promises us joy and that is Jesus Christ. Stop looking elsewhere.

Worship/praise God and then take the following prayerpoints:

1. I praise your holy name Lord for the true joy that you bestow on all that seek and follow you faithfully and for the assurance of everlasting life.
2. Lord, give me the grace to be heavenly focused and not truncate my glorious destiny or lose sight of the source of true joy in Jesus name
4. I pray for my G. O and Mummy in the Lord and their family that they will stand firm till the end and receive their crown of glory in Jesus name

There is a local saying which when loosely translated means 'a thoughtful person will know that he should give thanks'. Many of us are guilty of the sin of ungratefulness. Most often than not, because the 'big' miracle we are waiting for has not yet arrived, we turn a blind eye to all the other things that the Lord has so mercifully and graciously given to us. We sometimes have an erroneous sense of entitlement that makes us believe that God and our fellow brethren owe us something. Let us be clear on one thing: God does not owe anybody anything else. On the contrary we owe God our very lives.

There are many mercies we take for granted and tend to think they don't mean much. For example, our health is often taken for granted till we lose it. They say health is wealth. So, anybody that is in good health is a very wealthy person whether the person realises this or not. Sometime, ago one of the wealthiest men on earth died of cancer. At the time of his death, it was purported that he was worth over $8billion (N2.9 trillion). 

Yet, all his money did not buy him an extra day. He had the best medical treatment available to him, but as the medical personnel will say, 'we care, God heals'. Meanwhile here in The Lord’s Chosen, God is healing cancer and many terminal diseases everyday free of charge. Is this not a reason for joy? 

What about the fact that we boldly confront danger without fear knowing that God is with us. How many people can confront armed robbers or ritual killers just by declaring the name of their church? Yet we hear of this type of testimony in their thousands all over the world where Chosen members are. How about the mighty breakthroughs in various aspects of our lives? The barren of many years are now happy mothers of children and the poor are now rich.

Indeed, we have a lot to be joyful for. We should never take the grace and mercy of God for granted because He owes us nothing. We are the ones that are indebted to Him. No matter what we give, we cannot match what He has done for us by giving us life and life eternal. So today, take time to take stock and count your blessings, especially those that money cannot buy and as you do so He will give you many more reasons to be joyful.

Worship/praise God and then take the following prayerpoints:

1. Dear Lord, grant me a grateful and joyful heart and never let me take your mercies for granted, in Jesus name.

2. I thank you for all the blessings and joy you have showered on me (name them)

3. I especially thank you for what you are doing in the lives of our G. O, Mummy in the Lord and their children, in Jesus name.

THE CHOSEN DAILY DEVOTIONAL...THEME: OBEDIENCE BRINGS JOY



THE CHOSEN DAILY DEVOTIONAL...
DATE: Friday, January 5 , 2018.
TEXT: 1 Samuel 15:22-23




THEME: OBEDIENCE BRINGS JOY
MEMORISE: “And having in a readiness to revenge all disobedience, when your obedience is fulfilled.” (2 Corinthians 10:6)

MESSAGE: 

When God created the heavens and the earth, His plan for us was that we should live in fellowship and harmony with Him and His creation. Man and animals moved freely amongst each other with all of creation submitting to man. 

God provided for man's every need. He did not have to toil for food or labour. When He saw that man did not have his own kind to fellowship with, He created a helpmate for him. He also was meant to live forever, Indeed God's plan towards man was good. The only thing man had to do on his part was just to obey and fellowship with God. 

Man had only one commandment and that was not to eat from one tree in the midst of the numerous trees that God had planted in the garden. As long as man obeyed, he lived in joy and peace. What brought sadness, death, pain and chaos into the world? Disobedience! Man's singular act of disobedience against the commandment of God is what brought all the chaos the whole world is now experiencing.

Unfortunately, all human beings have inherited this nature of sin from Adam. We are born into sin and have a natural tendency to disobey or do evil. However, the good news is that God has provided a means for us to re-connect to the original nature He intended for us. He sent Jesus Christ to die on the cross for us so we can reconcile ourselves to God and live a live free of sin and condemnation. 

As long as we accept and believe in Him, He has provided us with grace to overcome sin. All we have to do is approach His throne of grace each day and ask for grace to overcome sin and obey His will. Examples abound in the Bible and today of those who obeyed Him and received joyful testimonies as rewards.

Brethren, the obedience is a sure way to everlasting joy and peace. Don't be deceived to think that any act of disobedience can give you peace or joy. The pleasure that sin gives is short lived. For true and lasting joy, we must make sure that we remain obedient to His will always.

Worship/praise God and then take the following prayerpoints:

1. Dear Lord give me the grace to be obedient to your word and will in Jesus name.
2. Forgive me Lord, for any time that I been disobedient to your commandments. In your wrath remember mercy Oh Lord!
3. Any enemy action that has been assigned to make me go against your will receive Holy Ghost rebuke in Jesus name.
4. Dear Lord, please give grace to G. O and Mummy in the Lord to remain relentless and strong till your coming in Jesus name.
