HELLO! HERE IS YOUR DAILY WORD. read, be blessed and share with others.

As a father has compassion on his children, so the Lord has compassion on those who fear him.
Psalm 103:13
Thoughts on Today's Verse... Compassion. Not pity, not anger, not shame, not impatience, not intolerance, not rejection, but compassion is what God, my Father, gives to me. He cares for my pain enough to enter into my world and share it in Jesus. My Prayer... Father of Mercies and God of all Compassion, thank you for not only knowing and caring about my struggles and problems but sending me help in Jesus and the Holy Spirit. By one I know your love and mercy and by the other I know your might and power. May your Spirit of compassion be found in my relationships. Through the grace of Jesus I pray. Amen.

Hello, here is your daily word

Be devoted to one another in brotherly love. Honor one another above yourselves.
—Romans 12:10

Thoughts on Today's Verse...
Being "devoted to another in brotherly love" requires that our church talk — we're family, brothers and sisters, children of God — must be more than mere words. We must enter each others lives, getting to know one another so that we can serve, love and bless each other. What have you done lately to get more involved in the lives of your fellow Christians? Devotion to others follows a commitment to know and be known by them!
My Prayer...
Father, thank you for giving me a world wide family. Thank you for loving me so completely. Father I ask that you help me be more open with myself and my time to those in your family. Give me a heart that burns to bless and be blessed by those you have made your children. Through my brother Jesus I pray. Amen.

Hello, here is your daily word

You, my brothers, were called to be free. But do not use your freedom to indulge the sinful nature; rather, serve one another in love.
—Galatians 5:13

Thoughts on Today's Verse...
Freedom is a wonderful gift when it is handled with responsibility. Not being under law is such a sweet grace, but we want to pass that sweetness on to each other through service, kindness, and care.
My Prayer...
O Great God of Deliverance, thank you for rescuing Israel from Pharaoh's grasp, David from the sword of Goliath, and Daniel from the lion's den. But O Great Deliverer, thank you most of all for the triumph of Jesus over sin at Calvary and his victory over death at the empty tomb. I long to see you face to face and thank you for my freedom. Until that day, guide me as I use this gift of liberation to serve you children and live for you. In Jesus' name I pray. Amen.

Here is your daily word

I appeal to you, brothers, in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that all of you agree with one another so that there may be no divisions among you and that you may be perfectly united in mind and thought.
—1 Corinthians 1:10

Thoughts on Today's Verse...
If people in our congregations are ever going to get along, the leaders of those churches must remind us of how important it is. Jesus' dying prayer was that we would be one. Why? So the world would know that the Father had sent him. Unity is not important, it is essential; not just as a theory or theology, but as a daily practice among the people who claim Jesus as Lord.My Prayer...
Lord Jesus, you have presented all of my prayers to our Father and I thank you for this grace. I promise that I will do all I can to bring glory of our Father, to live at peace and to serve in unity with those who belong to you. Please bless our church family with more passion for the unity that you desire. In Jesus' name and through the bless…

May the God who gives endurance and encouragement give you a spirit of unity among yourselves as you follow Christ Jesus, so that with one heart and mouth you may glorify the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ. —Romans 15:5-6
Thoughts on Today's Verse... Unity comes from God's Spirit as we follow Jesus. But, unity has a purpose much deeper than our getting along with each other. Jesus prayed we would be one so that the world would know that God sent Jesus into the world as his Son (John 17). We want to be united so that our praise can bring glory to God. Unity is far more than a goal. Unity is a process through which the world learns of Jesus. At the same time, we glorify the Father who sent Jesus to save us. Leading others to Jesus and glorifying God are what living for Jesus is all about! Let's make unity our passion! My Prayer... Great and Almighty God, Eternal Strength for all who call on your name, I apologize and ask your forgiveness for everything I've done…

Hello, Here is your daily word

The wisdom that comes from heaven is first of all pure; then peace-loving, considerate, submissive, full of mercy and good fruit, impartial and sincere. Peacemakers who sow in peace raise a harvest of righteousness.
James 3:17-18

Thoughts on Today's Verse... Now I know why righteousness is so hard to find: there aren't many sowers! Heavenly wisdom is full of sacrificial earthly action. That's a powerful reminder to me that wisdom is not what you know but what you sow! My Prayer... Holy and Wise Father, thank you for demonstrating purity, peace making, consideration, submissiveness, mercy, good fruit, impartiality, and sincerity in Jesus. I ask for the power and the courage to demonstrate these qualities this week as I seek to live like him. In Jesus' name I pray. Amen.

18TH MAY 2015 DAILY WORD

God is not unjust; he will not forget your work and the love you have shown him as you have helped his people and continue to help them.
—Hebrews 6:10

Thoughts on Today's Verse...
So much assurance in such a short verse! God is not unjust — boy is that an understatement: if he produced the atoning sacrifice for our sins, what will he deny us if we seek after him? He will not forget our work and love — an eternal record of the good we have done! When we help our brothers and sisters in Christ, we bless him! We are HIS people!! That's real motivation to keep on maturing in Christ. My Prayer...
God, you are so gracious. Thank you. Words cannot express my joy at hearing such a simple and profound statement describing your virtues. I am so glad I am your child. Through my brother Jesus I pray. Amen.

17 MAY 2015 DAILY WORD AND DEVOTIONAL

Image
Oh, the depth and riches of the wisdom and the knowledge of God! How unsearchable his judgments, and his paths beyond tracing out.
—Romans 11:33

Thoughts on Today's Verse...
God's plan to save us is incredible. His blueprints for the creation of our universe are beyond our imagining. He is so rich in wisdom and knowledge. What else can we do but go to him and ask him to open our minds to his work and his will in our lives. My Prayer...
Precious and Almighty Father, thank you for reawakening me each spring to the power of your sustaining presence in the world, but even more in my life. Bless me today as I seek to put you first in all I do. In Jesus name I pray. Amen.

16TH MAY 2015 DAILY WORD

The Lord your God is with you, he is mighty to save. He will take great delight in you, he will quiet you with his love, he will rejoice over you with singing.
—Zephaniah 3:17Thoughts on Today's Verse...
So God likes to sing too! He even likes to share his lullabies with those he loves. Not only is God Abba Father, he is also like a mother. He gently rocks and quiets his children with his affectionate care.My Prayer...
O God, I pray that when the storms of life rage against me, I will remember these words and find refuge, comfort and peace in your sheltering care. Make me aware, O God, of your singing in my life as you make your salvation more clear to me each day. Through my Savior Jesus I pray. Amen.

15TH MAY 2015

As you do not know the path of the wind, or how the body is formed in a mother's womb, so you cannot understand the work of God, the Maker of all things.
—Ecclesiastes 11:5

Thoughts on Today's Verse...
I don't know. I don't know! That has to be one of the hardest phrases for us to use. But when thinking about God and his ways, that's really all we can say. What we know about God is only what he in his grace has chosen to reveal to us. He is the Mystery of mysteries. He is the supreme knowable Unknown. Yet what we do know of him, what he has revealed to us in Jesus, is not only mighty and awesome, but loving and merciful.
My Prayer...
To you, O Lord God, I can only offer my wonder and awe. When I consider the vastness of the universe in which our tiny blue planet spins its existence, I am humbled at your wonderfully complex and expansive soveriegnty. At the same time, Abba Father, I treasure your nearness. You are the good far above all I know, the God who transcends…

14th MAY 2015 DAILY WORD

You created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother's womb. I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well.
—Psalm 139:13-14

Thoughts on Today's Verse...
I am made by God! You are made by God. Just as surely as ANYone has been made by God, we have been made by God. He knew us before anyone knew we were there. He had plans for us before anyone planned our arrival. And he made us well! How do we know? Look at all God has made.
My Prayer...
God Almighty, my Savior and Redeemer, thank you for knowing me before I was able to know. Thank you for choosing my life and giving it to me. Thank you for giving me the gifts, abilities and talents that you have given me. Now please help me live as if I was made special by you, because I am! Through Jesus I pray. Amen.

13th May 2015 daily word

Charm is deceptive and beauty is fleeting; but a woman who fears the Lord is to be praised.
—Proverbs 31:30

Thoughts on Today's Verse...
So many things we honor and exalt in our culture are shallow and temporary. The one thing that lasts in a beautiful woman is not her charm or her beauty, but her godliness. Let's make sure that our church families and our physical families value godly women and give them the praise they deserve!
My Prayer...
Holy God, please give us better eyes and more faithful hearts that we may value in all people qualities that reflect your character. Bless us as we raise our children that we may instill in them a sense of proper values as they choose their life partner. And dear God, please help us in our churches to value and praise women for their holy character. In Jesus' name. Amen.

12th May 2015 daily word

There is now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus, because through Christ Jesus the law of the Spirit of life in Christ has set me free from the law of sin and death.
—Romans 8:1-2


Thoughts on Today's Verse...
"Free at last! Free at last! Thank God Almighty, we are free at last!" Becoming a Christian means we have been liberated from law keeping. We now have God living in us through the Holy Spirit. The Spirit helps us to know God's will and then live it. Through the Spirit's power, we can do what no law could make us do: live up to God's standards of righteousness. We are set free to be like God and to be with God, free from the crippling power of law, sin, and death.
My Prayer...
Gracious father, thank you for all of your gifts to me. Today, I want to especially thank you for liberating me from law and empowering me with your Spirit. Fill me and empower me today with your Spirit as I commit to live my life for you. In the name and by the author…

11th May 2015 daily word

Be kind and compassionate to one another, forgiving each other, just as in Christ God forgave you.
—Ephesians 4:32

Thoughts on Today's Verse...
Be kind and compassionate — two qualities that seem to be in short supply. Maybe it's because we hold up the wrong heroes. Unfortunately these two qualities are often seen as signs of weakness rather than strength. To forgive as God forgave us requires great courage and great strength. So let's be strong!
My Prayer...
Holy God, there is no way I can adequately thank you for sacrificing so much to forgive me. So this day, I pledge to be more like you: to share more of your kindness and grace with those who have wronged me. Today, I ask you to help me release my bitterness toward _____________ and I ask you to bless this person with your kindness and grace. By the power of Jesus' example I ask this. Amen.

10th May 2015 daily devotional

If your brother sins against you, go and show him his fault, just between the two of you. If he listens to you, you have won your brother over.
—Matthew 18:15


Thoughts on Today's Verse...
The right thing is so hard to do sometimes. It seems so much easier to gossip about someone who has wronged us, or to mention them in a group prayer as needing help, or to pass around an innuendo when talking about struggling Christians. But, only one thing is the right thing when we have been wounded by the action of another brother or sister in Christ! Go to the person who has wronged you, try to keep the damage contained to just the two of you, and work on being reconciled. This is God's desire, and should be our goal as his children.

My Prayer...

Lord God Almighty, forgive my foolish and selfish ways. Give me courage to lovingly confront those who have sinned against me, but if I cannot bring reconciliation, help me through the power of your Holy Spirit to forgive as you have forgiven me.…

BETTER THAN RUBBIES

Image
Daily word

A wife of noble character who can find? She is worth far more than rubies... She watches over the affairs of her household and does not eat the bread of idleness. Her children arise and call her blessed; her husband also, and he praises her.
—Proverbs 31:10 27-28


Thoughts on Today's Verse...
Give honor to whom honor is due! This biblical principle is most certainly true of women, and especially those who are godly mothers. Let's make sure we praise the key women in our lives today!


My Prayer...
Father, I want to thank you for the women of character and grace, tenderness and fire, love and tenacity, who have helped shape my life in a way which helped me find, follow, and faithfully serve you. Please bless them this day. I ask this in Jesus' name. Amen.

KEEP YOUR VIRGINITY TILL MARRIAGE.

Image
"YOUR HEAT SHOULD BE PRESERVED ONLY FOR YOUR SPOUSE" Today's system has so much decayed that we hardly have young people whose "heat" are still intact. What heat do I mean? I don't mean a prefabricated heat. I mean such divine heat for sexual satisfaction between a married man and woman. Such heat is found in the bible in Ecclesiastes 4:11 (KJV) - "Again, if two (obviously married couple) lie together (obviously in bed having fun), then they have "HEAT": but how can one be warm alone?" That's the kind of heat I'm talking about.





But today we have people (men and women), whose heat(s) have been completely drained before marriage via premarital sex. What heat will be left to enjoy when you get married? ... God has so much designed this heat to be at its peak when one is a virgin and so much enjoyed when married and that's why you have to keep your heat (virginity) till you get married. In 1 Kings 1:2 (KJV) - "Let there be …

HOW TO PREPARE FOR MARRIAGE

Image
PREPARING FOR MARRIAGE
A man was travelling in an aircraft and he was wearing his wedding ring on the wrong finger and someone told him he was wearing his wedding ring on the wrong finger and he said " hey! Don’t worry, it's because I married the wrong woman"
A marriage you don’t prepare for will confuse you.
You don’t prepare in marriage, you prepare for marriage.
You don’t learn how to shoot gun in the battle front, you learn it before the battle begins.
The better time to prepare for marriage is when you are single.
Celebrate your season as a single
Being a single is not a disadvantage,
Being a single is not a sin
You are not under a curse because you are single.
Being a single is the time you prepare for marriage.
To be single is better than married and praying to be a single.
So many people prepare for wedding and not marriage. Wedding is different from marriage. After the wedding, marriage begins.
Wedding is an initiation into marriage.
The elaborate…

HOW TO BE SURE IF MY PARTNER IS GOD'S WILL FOR ME

Image
Before you finally decide--- please PRAY THROUGH all over again NOT Think through.
1. Be sure you know what marriage is: check The purpose of marriage
2. Does the man have vision?
3. Does he know where he is going to?
4. Is he the perfect will of God for your life?
You are a woman, and you still have the authority now that you are still single and you're not yet married to him but the moment you come from the altar, you've released your crown and have submitted the authority to him and he will automatically become your head and begins to rule over you.

Dear Sist,
You can still pray more, for it is not yet too late.

Woman, don't release your crown to a foolish man. Whoever fails to know the Lord is nothing but a foolish man, therefore; guide your crown jealously.
Be patient before releasing your authority and
Let God guide you BUT be sure it is God, NOT YOUR BRAIN. be sure it's GOD LEADING

NO WOMAN IS BORN USELESS

Marriage is more than just to have children or to satisfy one's desire or lust, this is because anybody can just decide to have children without necessarily getting married. There are so many bastard children around and as a result of unplanned Union. Meanwhile,  it was God who instituted marriage for his own purpose.
     God gave Eve to Adam not only because Adam needed help but ALSO because was lonely in the garden and God saw it wasn't good this way, so he gave Adam Eve to keep him company and to assist him to fulfill his mission in life.
     Therefore,  Adam needed Eve to succeed in life, Adam was not complete being alone, remember; God first created Adam but when He now decided to make the woman He really took His time to create her and He loaded her with keys and treasures of heaven which will be useful for the man and for the world.
     Adam was bored and lonely in the garden and satan was happy with his condition because he posed no threat or problem for him-s…

CAN I MARRY YOU?: and who says you are not beautiful?

I'm writing this post based on my experience and what I've seen around happening all the time.
most times, as a lady you might think men are not coming because of:

1. shape----not figure 8 that most men want.
2. face----round face, oval face, cat face and so on.
3. complexion----lot of men love fair ladies, then what will become of the dark ones
4. size of your breast---may you are even the type that doesn't wear padded bra.
I can continue to give you so many reasons you think is affecting you.
you have bought different kits of make-ups to make you look different.
padded bras, big-buttocks pants, fair complexion creams, plastic surgeries(face)-

But remember, God made you in his own image, a perfect image of God you are made.
Love yourself and love your look, in short; love everything about you.
Therefore, let that man leave if he's saying you are not pretty enough. The right man will come at the right time.

Don't get yourself all worked up when a friendship ends. Thank God for the time that person was in your life & understand seasonal friendships. When God closes that friend door, it's because that person is no longer going in the same direction as you. It's not that they are terrible people.. its just that God had to confuse your language because He is taking you somewhere different & their influence & voice can hinder that process. So, wave goodbye & love them from a distance as the LORD leads you. God is PROTECTING you & HE will provide godly friendships in each season.

Wouldn’t you agree that most arguments happen over the dumbest things? Often there’s a misunderstanding or a careless comment that is made and later regretted—but only after the damage is done. How can we minimize the careless comments in our marriage? How can we change-up our pattern and begin to say the right word at the right time? The wisest man who ever lived, King Solomon, wrote: “A word aptly spoken is like apples of gold in settings of silver.” (Proverbs 25:11) In the original language, the idea is a word given at just the right time is beautiful and valuable. Wouldn’t you agree that holds true in marriage as well? Often the right word comes at a time when we are struggling, sad, angry or needing to be lifted up. When the right thing is said there is connection, care, compassion, and encouragement. We feel understood and our spouse’s words are actually a blessing to us. Here are four things to keep in mind this week so that your words are “aptly spoken” and become a treasure …
