Prayer for courage

Posted by Joseph Iwaye on Saturday, December 3, 2016, In : Prayers 
Courage is the innate capacity to do what is right when everyone around you is doing the opposite. Courage gives you the ability to proclaim Christ when others are denying him. Taking a brief look brief at the scripture, I found out that courage can give you the zeal, the boldness and the strength to fulfill your God-given destiny (Deut. 31:7, 1Chr. 22:13). Courage can energise you to kill your Goliath and thereby announce you to the world (like the case of David). Courage can take you from o...

Let there be light

Posted by Joseph Iwaye on Saturday, January 2, 2016, In : Christian Devotions

Light, as we all know, is very important in human life. Imagine a sudden absence of all form of light (the sun, the moon, electricity, solar, etc) in the whole world. What do you think? A beautiful dark world or a disgusting and awful dark planet to live in? I guess your answer is as good as mine: The world will be a miserable place to live in! Sorrow will not be uncommon! The future will be gloomy! And death will be commonplace.  Believe me or not, such is the situation with everyone who doe...

The power of courage

Posted by Joseph Iwaye on Wednesday, February 12, 2014, In : Christian Devotions 

Only be thou strong and very courageous, that thou mayest observe to do according to all the law, which Moses my servant commanded thee: turn not from it to the right hand or to the left, that thou mayest prosper whithersoever thou goest. (Joshua 1:7)

courage and fearOne outstanding characteristic of great men of God is courage. Daniel was courageous to refuse the king’s meat (Daniel 1:8). Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego put on the garment of bravery and strong determination to face the wrath of Kin...

How to receive the promises of God

Posted by Joseph Iwaye on Tuesday, February 12, 2013, In : Christian Devotions 

Scripture Reading:Hebrews 6:12-15

Memory Verse

“That ye be not slothful, but followers of them who through faith and patience inherit the promises” (Hebrews 6:12)

hand receiving from GodThis week devotion is centred on how to receive the promises of God. You might be aware that God has a lot of promises for his children, but do you know that most of those promises elude the children of God because they don’t understand how to receive them? Beloved, it is of no use to know that those promises exist if we don...

Murdered Twice Yet Alive

Posted by Joseph Iwaye on Thursday, September 20, 2012, In : christian messages 
 
Jesus on the crossRevelation 13:8 reveals to us that the Lamb of God was slain from the foundation of the world. What an interesting scripture! But how come? Because we know Jesus as the Lamb of God (John 1:29). He came to this world just around 2045 years ago and was crucified some 2012 years ago. As we know, the world has been in existence long before Christ was born into this world. So how come the scripture says He was slain before the foundation of the world? And who actually slay him from the fou...

Prayer of Blessing - Bible Based Prayer of Blessing

Posted by Joseph Iwaye on Wednesday, August 15, 2012, In : Prayers 

Prayer of blessings should be an integral part of everyone seeking to prosper in this evil world. Why? Because it is the desire of God to bless his children and not just to bless them but to also make them a channel of blessing unto others (Genesis 12:2). Blessing is the opposite of curse. While God desires to bless his children, the enemy secretly pronounce curse upon them to bring them down. That is why some Christians find it difficult to move forward in spite of every effort to do ...

Posted by Joseph Iwaye on Friday, May 25, 2012, In : Christian Marriage

Christian Devotions Memory Verse

 

“Blessed are the undefiled in the way, who walk in the law of the LORD” (Psalm 119:1 KJV)

 

One class of those people that God will bless is the undefiled. The undefiled represent the group of people who are without blemish or spot. Their ways of life are blameless and their walk with God is faultless. The heart of the undefiled does not conceive evil let alone do it. The Lord, our God is interested in these people and He’s dete...

Christian Devotions Memory Verse
“And God saw the light, that it was good: and God divided the light from the darkness” (Genesis 1:4)
 
 
And God saw the light, that it was good. Now, let us imagine the earth without any form of light; no sun, no moon, no electricity. How do you think it will look like? I guess it will be total darkness, confusion and chaos beyond imaginable; such is the life of anyone who doesn’t have Christ. No wonder some celebrity with all ...

Beware of Pride

Posted by Joseph Iwaye on Sunday, April 15, 2012, In : christian messages 

God expect every of his children to grow up to maturity (1Peter 2:2) after being born again. It is lack of spiritual growth that usually brings backsliding. Growing spiritually involves some effort as well as total reliance of the grace of God; Effort in the area of praise, worship, prayer, studying the word of God and obedience to the Holy Spirit inspired message of God (the bible). Lack of obedient to the word of God will certainly hinder Christian spiritual growth. One of such important wo...
