COVETOUS THINKING -2

For as he thinks in his heart, so is he…

PROVERBS 23:7

When there was intense idol worship in Africa, what brought civilization to Africa was the Gospel. If we take the gospel out of this continent, we will be in trouble because the church is the only hope for Africa. Churches own most of the powerful schools in Africa. It was a church that established the first private university in Ghana. The church is playing a very significant role in our societies and so the way you are serving God as if you are doing someone a favour, shows that you lack understanding .

The reason you attend church the way you do, is that you think you can make it without God. It is a kind of covetous thinking.

I went to America one time and discovered that the lives of those who are not serving God are extremely miserable; they commit suicide like drinking water; but for those who are serving God, life is not easy but somehow they are able to stand because of whom they have believed.

Until you change your mind, you will go nowhere. Covetous thinking begins with the heart because everything starts from the heart. And so, the state of your heart determines the state of your life. How do I know this? “As a man thinks in his heart, so is he”. If you can change the way think, you can change your circumstance.

PRAYER:

• Pray and say Lord help me think the right thoughts in my heart (Phil. 2:5)

TODAY`S QUOTE:

• I cannot change your future until I change your mind.

SCRIPTURE READING:

• Philippians 4:8, Proverbs 4:23

1 YEAR BIBLE READING:

• 1 Samuel 10-12 and Luke 9:37-62

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…
