MAIN TEXT: 2 Samuel 24
In verse 1 of today’s devotional, we see God giving a directive to King David (though out of anger) to count the people of Israel and Judah. Immediately, David obeyed God’s instruction and called Joab, his Chief of Staff to start the census exercise.
In a couple of months after, the result of the census was out having about 1.3 million able bodied soldiers that could stand the gap to fight for Israel. Continue reading
Bible Verse: MARK 5: 27-28Verses 27 and 28 of today’s scripture says: “When she had heard of Jesus, she came in the press behind, and touched his garment for she said, If l may touch but his clothes, I shall be whole.” Note: “When she had heard of Jesus” and “For she said.” One translation says: “for she continued to say.”That means before she touched, she HEARD, AND SHE SPOKE! Hearing The Word and then speaking and speaking before touching are secrets of virtue flow! Continue reading
Paul was particular about believers that were hypocritical: In his letter to the church in Corinth, he reported the case he heard about someone sleeping with his step mother. This was totally unbearable among Christian Believers. He was really disappointed on the level of immoral things going on and mentioned that even the heathen (the unbelievers were not as bad). He told them anyone found wanting in these immoral acts should be expelled from the fellowship. He stood for strong disciplinary action to be taken against any believer that got involved in such filthy acts. Continue reading

The world was shocked in late 2012 when the respected Robert Kiyosaki, author of the best-selling book, “RICH DAD, POOR DAD,” filed for bankruptcy. Kyosaki made the move after being wiped out by a $24 million lawsuit that he lost to the Learning Annex. Truth is that when you make millions giving financial advice to other people, the last thing anyone expects is for you to go bankrupt. Continue reading
Theodore Roosevelt said, “The only man who never makes a mistake is the man who never does anything.”Edison spent more than $100,000 to obtain 6,000 different fiber specimens, and only three (0.05%) of them proved satisfactory. Each failure brought him much closer to the solution to his problem. His friend Henry Ford was right when he said that failure was the “opportunity to begin again, more intelligently.” God runs us through various programmes according to His perfect plan for our lives and along the way, He uses mistakes and failures as part of His Road map to our destination.

A young man, the only son of a New England farmer, fell into ways of dissipation at college and incurred debts which he could not pay. He was arrested for forging the name of a friend of his father. After he was tried, convicted, and sentenced, he escaped from the police on the way to prison and hid in the far west.

It so happened that the detective was the former police officer from whom his son had escaped. The young man’s father gave the former officer a note for his son and sent him to find him. He did find him. Continue reading
The figure “13” is a prophetic number of GRACE AND REBELLION. Thank God for 2O13.
Until You Rebel, You Cannot Recover! In God’s Agenda, Rain And Recovery Are Twins,
Before Recovery, Divine Rain Must Fall! In 1 Kings 18:41. Elijah said to King AHAB: “…for there is a sound of abundance of rain.’ He was saying: “I hear the sound of an abundance of rain.” Elijah spoke those words in a place and a time where there had not been one drop of water from the sky or dew on the Ground in three and a half years.

MAIN BIBLE TEXT: 2 KINGS 3:5-19
God could not use Abraham till he left his people. God did not show Abraham the extent of his calling, till Lot left him. Samson did not know the Holy Ghost had left him. Remember that Elisha could not prophesy till a musician was brought to him. In this year 2013, determine that you will create the right ATMOSPHERE for God to move in your life, family and ministry. A family with hatred and quarrels will not allow the Holy Ghost to move. A pastor, church or ministry after politicking, power tussle, material centered, fame-seeking and with a prayerless life will drive out the Holy Ghost from that congregation. Continue reading

Some time ago, a story was told of a man who loved exotic fishes. He kept a large fifty-gallon aquarium in his apartment and enjoyed watching the myriad rainbow of fins flashing within the miniature ocean. This man whose job often required him travelling, decided to equip the aquarium with a state-of-the-art mechanism, which would automatically clean the tank, release food and keep the water temperature constant.
