    Put Your Body Under - Rhapsody of Realities - Sun 22 Jan 2017

    Pastor Chris Oyakhilome

    RHAPSODY OF REALITIES SUNDAY, 22ND JANUARY.

    PUT YOUR BODY UNDER.

    But I keep under my body, and bring it into subjection: lest that by any means, when I have preached to others, I myself should be a castaway (1 Corinthians 9:27).
    As a child of God, one thing you have to consciously do is to put your body in subjection to the Word. There’re Christians who can’t undergo such a spiritual exercise as fasting. They just can’t fast for a reasonable period of time. Why? They’re too lazy! Once it’s time to fast, their bodies wouldn’t let them; they start struggling. That’s when they suddenly remember the cake that’s been in the fridge for weeks; a voracious appetite for food suddenly wells up in them and sustaining the fast becomes a struggle.

    But the truth is, any time such a thing like this happens, your spirit will always talk to you; it’s just whether or not you’ll listen to your spirit. At such times when your body is trying to lord it over you, if you yield to your flesh rather than to your spirit, you’ll lose another opportunity to make your body conform to your spirit. In the day of trouble, your body will be
    the master, and God doesn’t want that.

    The Apostle Paul, in our opening verse, said, “But I keep under my body, and bring it into subjection: lest that by any means, when I have preached to others, I myself should be a castaway” (1 Corinthians 9:27). Every time there’s an opportunity for a spiritual exercise, take advantage of it. For example, when it’s time to pray, pray! Refuse to feel tired or sleepy; put away everything that’s likely to distract you, and discipline yourself to observe your prayer times. By so doing, you’re training your spirit to dominate your body.

    The outward man (your body) has its senses, and your spirit has its senses as well. The outward man has a mind that holds the memory, and the human spirit also has memory. So, whichever one you train is what will determine the quality of your life. Those who live according to their senses are terribly limited; they’re the ones that experience failures and defeat in life. But those who are led by the Spirit, those who have trained their spirits, have the mastery.
    Make up your mind to let your spirit gain the dominion over your body; live beyond this earthly realm.


    CONFESSION
    I belong to Christ, and I’ve crucified the flesh with its passions and desires. I reckon myself to be dead indeed unto sin, but alive unto God through Jesus Christ. I walk by the Spirit always, and manifest fruits of righteousness. My spirit is alive unto God! Hallelujah!

    Staying In His Love - DCLM Daily Manna - Sun 22 Jan 2017

    Sunday January 22, 2017
    STAYING IN HIS LOVE
    - JOHN 15:9-17

    KEY VERSE:

    "If ye keep my commandments, ye shall abide in my love; even as I have kept my Father's commandments, and abide in his love" (John 15:10).

    There are times it appears that some people within an organization tend to enjoy the favour and attention of the leader above others within the same group. The reason for this is very simple. It is usually because such people are found to be loyal and obedient. Nothing endears a child to the love and affection of the parents more than obedience and submission. This is not a matter of favouritism or nepotism but a natural order. Nobody will want to continue to shower affection and favour on a stubborn and rebellious person. Even in a family, parents get fed up with stubborn, disobedient and an incorrigible child. Jesus, in our text, tells us that obeying the commandments of God is the secret of staying within His love. There are times when some people doubt if God really loves them. They want to know the secret of enjoying God’s love and having His favour. At times, when they see how God blesses and favours their fellow, they wonder why they are not enjoying such favour. Why are they not having speedy answers to prayers? Is it that God is partial? The answer is obviously no. If we are going to stay in His love and enjoy His loving care and favour, then we must keep His commandments. What commandment does God want us to keep in order to continue to enjoy His love and favour? It is very simple. It is to love Him absolutely and to love our neighbours as ourselves. In fact, the natural evidence that we love God is that we want to obey Him. And if we love our fellow men, we will not want to hurt them. How do you fare in keeping these commandments? Are there things or people you love more than God that make you disobey and displease Him? Then, there is no way you can enjoy the full benefits of His love. Set things right from today. Make up your mind to love God absolutely and obey Him in everything and you will see how He will continue to lavish His love on you.

    Thought for the day: To stay in His love, you must obey His Word.

    Pathway of the Foolish - RCCG Open Heavens - Sun 22 Jan 2017

    Open Heavens Devotional Sunday 22 January 2017:- Pathway of the foolish
    PATHWAY OF THE FOOLISH – Sunday January 22nd 2017

    Memorise: The fool hath said in his heart, There is no God. They are corrupt, they have done abominable works, there is none that doeth good. Psalm 14:1
    Read: Psalm 14:1-4 (KJV)
    1 The fool hath said in his heart, There is no God. They are corrupt, they have done abominable works, there is none that doeth good.


    2 The Lord looked down from heaven upon the children of men, to see if there were any that did understand, and seek God.

    3 They are all gone aside, they are all together become filthy: there is none that doeth good, no, not one.

    4 Have all the workers of iniquity no knowledge? who eat up my people as they eat bread, and call not upon the Lord.



    Bible in one year: Mark 14, Isaiah 19:1-15, Hymn: Sing hymn 11
    MESSAGE:


    One of characteristics of the godless is that they seek their personal goals without thinking about God. The things they seek after have overtaken the space that God created in them for Himself. Do you know that today, believers, using the excuse of not having time, are chasing after material things at the expense of cultivating a personal relationship with God?

    “The fool hath said in his heart, There is no God. They are corrupt, they have done abominable works, there is none that doeth good.”
    Psalm 14:1

    If you think in your heart that God does not exist, even when you have not verbalised such thoughts, God has heard you. Open Heavens Devotional Sunday 22 January 2017:- Pathway of the foolish. If you are one of those who believe that although God exists, He is too slow, too weak or too inconsequential to bring about the needed intervention in a given situation, you are in the same class with the godless. God simply call such people fools.

    Why would God call someone a fool? If a person considers the whole observable universe – the sun, the moon, the stars, galaxies, planets, plants, the seas, lakes, rivers, beautiful landscapes, all the mineral deposits in the soil, water springs, the skyline, rain and various weather conditions – and still concludes in his or her heart that these things created themselves, though accepting that no human hand created them, such a person is best described as being on a fool’s path. You do not need anyone to tell you that there is a God somewhere; a very great and massive God who created all these things, and who supervises their operations. A fool is someone who denies obvious truths and facts. Similarly, a fool is one who decides to live the way he or she pleases. Many people live the way he or she please. Many people live their lives the way they do they do right now because they never think of the day of reckoning. Believe it or not, that day will come for everybody. A fool also is the fellow who pushes God aside but pursues the gift and blessing He gives. How can you desire to receive gifts from God without wanting to know the Giver of such gifts? Unfortunately, many believers are letting go of their personal relationship with God for material pursuits and are fast becoming fools. Open heavens 2017 manual. They are on the highway of foolishness. Are you considered a fool? Repent, beat a retreat and make God your number one priority today.


    Key Point:
    Men hardly fail to take credit for their achievements, yet they readily rob God of His.

    Knowing You’ve Truly Forgiven Someone - UCB Word For Today - Sun 22 Jan 2017

    TODAY'S WORD FOR TODAY
    Knowing you’ve truly forgiven someone
    ‘They didn’t even smell of smoke!’

    Daniel 3:27

    The UCB Word for Today - 22 Jan 2017

    When King Nebuchadnezzar threw Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego into the fiery furnace, God brought them out and ‘they didn’t even smell of smoke!’ We’ve all encountered people who still ‘smell like smoke’. Their attitude says, ‘I’ve been through a hard time, and I’m still upset about it.’ How about you? Have the experiences you’ve been through hardened your heart or softened it? When you speak, do you sound positive or negative? Are you bound by the memories of your past? Do you talk about your pain to anyone who will listen? Don’t you see what you’re doing - chaining yourself to the past? When circus elephants are young and unaware of their strength, they’re bound by a chain to a stake to limit their mobility. Later when they’re full-grown and have the strength to break that chain, they’re still bound by it. Why? Because they accept this limitation as permanent! But it’s not the chain that binds them, it’s the memory! If you are bound by painful and debilitating memories, the word for you today is: ‘O LORD our God, masters besides You have had dominion over us; but by You only we make mention of Your name. They are dead, they will not live; they are deceased, they will not rise. Therefore You have punished and destroyed them, and made all their memory to perish’ (Isaiah 26:13-14 NKJV). Whatever your haunting memory is, you must begin to declare your deliverance from its bondage. By standing on God’s Word, you activate its power to set you free.

    Luke 1:39-56, Ps 7-9
