Growth in Business Acumen By Rev Eastwood Anaba

 Theme: Grow Up

 Topic: Growth in Business Acumen

Scripture Reading:

Acts 4:30-35

Main Text:

Acts 4:33-34

33 And with great power gave the apostles witness of the resurrection of the Lord Jesus: and great grace was upon them all.

34 Neither was there any among them that lacked: for as many as were possessors of lands or houses sold them, and brought the prices of the things that were sold,


Apart from shying away from the acquisition of wealth and possessions, one other thing believers should work on is our reluctance to create businesses. The world is far ahead of the Church in the area of business. It is common to find unemployed believers who spend hours praying for jobs, but afterwards shut their brains down. This ought not to be so. God gives us the power and wisdom to get wealth (Deuteronomy 8:18).


When Great Grace and Power were released upon the believers in the early Church, the grace and power "came to meet" people who knew how to make profit from business. Our focal scripture says they had lands and possessions, which they sold. Apostle Paul admonished believers who idled about and stole, to desist from that and labour with their own hands, so that they can care for the needy (Ephesians 4:28).


Growth in BUSINESS ACUMEN (shrewdness, intelligence, expertise) for profit is imperative – the believers who had lands and houses sold them. There are too many needy people around for able-bodied and intelligent believers to be providing just enough for they and their families. The LORD has promised to bless whatever you set your hands to do (Deuteronomy 28:8). Rise up in this confidence, and work towards that business.


Prayer:

1. Pray that the Holy Ghost will give you a business idea and wisdom for business.

2. Pray also for the Church that believers will grow in business acumen.

Theme: Purpose

Topic: Anointed for a Purpose

Scripture Reading:
Acts 13:19-22; Genesis 1:26-28

Main Text:
Acts 13:22
22 And when he had removed him, he raised up unto them David to be their king; to whom also he gave testimony, and said, I have found David the son of Jesse, a man after mine own heart, which shall fulfil all my will.From yesterday's devotional, we know that Without  purpose, life  is meaningless  and  unfulfilling. It is important for you to discover the purpose for which you were created,  blessed  and  anointed, and that God definitely created you for a purpose. God  anoints  you for a purpose.  Purpose  is  the  reason for the anointing.  Without purpose the anointing is either  wasted or abused. It is needful to also note that God  anoints people for a  purpose.You are  anointed to serve God  and touch people’s lives.  A powerful anointing  produces supernatural  results in others. God  anointed King David,  a  man after His…

Scripture Reading:Genesis 1:26-28;  
Main Text:Genesis 1:28And God blessed them, and God said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth,  and subdue it: and have dominion over the fish of  the sea, and over the fowl  of the air, and over every living thing that moveth  upon the earth.The Oxford dictionary  defines “purpose” as the reason for which something is done or created or for which something exists. Without purpose, life  is meaningless and unfulfilling. It is important for you to discover the purpose for which you were created,  blessed and anointed.  Purpose is not the prerogative of  a privileged few in the world – everybody should know his or her purpose in life.God created you for a purpose. He created  Adam and Eve and gave them the divine mandate to rule the universe and make the earth productive (Genesis 1:28). The  earth has great potential but it takes human beings to …

The Seven Spirits of God By Rev Eastwood Anaba

Theme: Purpose
Topic: The Seven Spirits of God
Scripture Reading:
Isaiah 11:1-2; Luke 4:1-19
Main Text:
Revelation 4:5
5 And out of the throne proceeded lightnings and thunderings and voices: and there were seven lamps of fire burning before the throne, which are the seven Spirits of God.
In  Isaiah  11:1-2, the  prophet Isaiah describes the seven-fold nature of the Spirit of the LORD who would rest on the Messiah. The Holy Ghost rests upon you with His perfect nature to subdue your human nature. His seven-fold nature overwrites your human inadequacies. His nature is superior to your human nature. He is what and who you are not. He does what you cannot do and gives what you cannot give.
In the book of  Revelation, John referred to the seven Spirits of God (Revelation 4:5). There is only one Holy Ghost so the term seven Spirits of God refers to the seven-fold character of the Holy Ghost. There is one Spirit with a seven-fold characterisation. Isaiah 11…
