The Danger of Compromise by Pastor David Ibiyeomie

Topic: The Danger of Compromise

Compromise is to be conformed to the world which the scripture condemns. Today, compromise means nothing to people.

2 Corinthian 6:17-18 -Wherefore come out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the Lord, and touch not the unclean thing; and I will receive you. 18 And will be a Father unto you, and ye shall be my sons and daughters, saith the Lord Almighty.

When you reduce God’s word to the standard of the world, you will get the same result they get; whether in business, career and family. Compromise is a deadly sin. Let the word of God be your standard of living. There is no civilization in the world that can make the Bible to be outdated; it is the same old-rugged truth that can never change. If it worked for Abraham, it will still work for you. It is the most powerful book on earth.

When you compromise; thinking you are looking for a short-cut, you will end up losing everything around you. Many have lost their destinies because they compromised. Most marriages today are in crises because the believers compromised and are paying the price

Proverbs 14:12 -There is a way which seemeth right unto a man, but the end thereof are the ways of death.

Compromise is agreeing to secure momentary gain and later face shame and reproach. In 1Kings 3, Solomon loved the Lord but a time came in his life that he began to compromise his faith. The same man that built temple for God began to build shrines for idols. His father David never worshipped any idol but Solomon compromised.

1 Kings 11:5-6 – For Solomon went after Ashtoreth the goddess of the Zidonians, and after Milcom the abomination of the Ammonites. 6 And Solomon did evil in the sight of the Lord, and went not fully after the Lord, as did David his father.

The same man that loved God fell from being great king; full of good reputation to being a rejected, frustrated and confused man of no honour because he compromised. Watch what you are doing. Every time you compromise, you are simply heading for a crash but God forbid.

Many Christians compromise because of the love of money. God is not against you having money; He is against money controlling you. When a man loves money, he can do anything to get it. Love of money is the root of all evil.

1 Timothy 6:10 – For the love of money is the root of all evil: which while some coveted after, they have erred from the faith, and pierced themselves through with many sorrows.

Another reason Christians compromise is due to covetousness. Many are not content with the blessings of God upon their lives per time. When you always look at what you don’t have and constantly wish you have it though you know you don’t have money to acquire that thing; be careful because the spirit of covetousness is nearby and it can lead you to compromise.

Luke 12:15 -And he said unto them, Take heed, and beware of covetousness: for a man’s life consisteth not in the abundance of the things which he possesseth.

Most times external pressure and influence can cause you to compromise too. Please don’t allow external pressure to make you do what you don’t want to do.

1 Samuel 15:24 -And Saul said unto Samuel, I have sinned: for I have transgressed the commandment of the Lord, and thy words: because I feared the people, and obeyed their voice.

Saul offended God because people pushed him to do what God instructed him not to do. Therefore, don’t allow people to push you to compromise the standards of God.

Every habit is started in one day; so the day you decide not to compromise anymore, you can also stop it. So take a decision to stop that which you have been compromising for long. As you make this decision today, may God release HIS grace in that direction to help you stop that habit and overcome every work of the flesh in Jesus name –Amen!

God bless you

Text: Exodus 16:22-31 (KJV)
22 And it came to pass, that on the sixth day they gathered twice as much bread, two omers for one man: and all the rulers of the congregation came and told Moses.
23 And he said unto them, This is that which the LORD hath said, To morrow is the rest of the holy sabbath unto the LORD: bake that which ye will bake to day, and seethe that ye will seethe; and that which remaineth over lay up for you to be kept until the morning.
24 And they laid it up till the morning, as Moses bade: and it did not stink, neither was there any worm therein.
25 And Moses said, Eat that to day; for to day is a sabbath unto the LORD: to day ye shall not find it in the field.
26 Six days ye shall gather it; but on the seventh day, which is the sabbath, in it there shall be none.
27 And it came to pass, that there went out some of the people on the seventh day for to gather, and they found none.
28 And the LORD said unto Moses, How long refuse ye to keep my commandments and my laws?
29 See, for that the LORD hath given you the sabbath, therefore he giveth you on the sixth day the bread of two days; abide ye every man in his place, let no man go out of his place on the seventh day.
30 So the people rested on the seventh day.
31 And the house of Israel called the name thereof Manna: and it was like coriander seed, white; and the taste of it was like wafers made with honey.

Key Verse: “And it came to pass, that on the sixth day they gathered twice as much bread, two omers for one man; and all the rulers of the congregation came and told Moses” (Exodus 16:22).

MESSAGE:

George Muller, a renowned evangelist, built many orphanages at Ashley Down, England. Without salary, he relied solely on God to supply the money and food needed to support the hundreds of homeless children he accommodated in the name of Christ. Being a man of extraordinary faith, he kept a motto on his desk for many years that brought comfort, strength and confidence to his heart. It reads: “It matters to Him about you.” Muller believed that those words captured the meaning of (1 Peter 5:7) and he rested his claim for divine help on that truth. He testified at the end of his life that the Lord had never failed to supply all his needs.

The Israelites had complained of hunger and God had sent them bread from heaven with specific instructions. Although they were disobedient, He cared and provided food for them in the wilderness.

In view of life’s difficult circumstances, we are sometimes tempted to ask whether or not God really cares for us just as did Israel when they murmured against Moses because of hunger. As true Christians, we are precious in the sight of God. We were “not redeemed with corruptible things… But with the precious blood of Christ, as of a lamb without blemish and without spot.”

You can be rest assured that God who redeemed you from your sins loves you enough to provide for all your present needs. He knows your peculiar condition and He delights in providing for your needs, healing your sicknesses, delivering you from oppression and giving you joy in exchange for sadness. No matter how serious or terrible your situation may seem to be, rest assured that God is interested in your welfare. He has neither forgotten nor forsaken you.

Thought For The Day: Jesus redeemed you; you matter to Him.

From Faith to Faith—Daily Devotionals June 14, 2019 – Cast Your Cares on Him – Gloria Copeland The Father’s Heart

Topic:Cast Your Cares on Him
Kenneth Copeland

Humble yourselves therefore under the mighty hand of God, that he may exalt you in due time: casting all your care upon him; for he careth for you.
1 Peter 5:6

Kenneth Copland

When I first learned to cast my cares on the Lord, I was down in south Texas preaching a meeting that no one was coming to. I’m telling you, people were staying away from that meeting by the thousands; and after a service or two with just the preacher, one or two others and me in attendance, I was starting to sweat it. But the Lord said, Cast that care on Me, so I did.

I started walking around grinning and whistling. I told the devil, “I’m not going to frown or have one worried thought. I came here to preach and that’s what I’m going to do, and it’s God’s business whether anyone shows up or not. I couldn’t care less!”

I went around so happy I felt downright foolish. The devil said, “What’s the matter with you? Don’t you even have sense enough to worry over something like this?” I suppose people were saying, “I guess he’s too dumb to worry. I think it’s because he’s never been to seminary. He can’t tell a landslide from a flop.”

But I told the Lord, “I have my care rolled over on You, and if no one shows up but that one dear old woman, she’s going to be the most preached-up old woman in the state of Texas because I’m going to preach just the same as if there were a crowd.”

I didn’t realize then what was happening, but that carefreeness put me in a noncompromising position with the devil. He couldn’t get to me anymore. He couldn’t get me in fear and unbelief anymore. He couldn’t pressure me and get me to compromise because I didn’t care. I’d given all my care to God!

Are you ready to be free of care? If you are, just make this confession of faith:

“I’m a believer. I’m not a doubter. The Word works in me. And at this moment, I humble myself under the mighty hand of God. I cast all my care over on Him. From this moment forward, I refuse to worry. Instead, I will pray. I will use my faith and believe, and He’ll exalt me over the problem and over the devil. For I belong to Jesus and He cares for me!”

Be Exempted From Evil by David Ibiyeomie

Be Exempted From Evil by David Ibiyeomie

Pastor David Ibiyeomie

Topic: Be Exempted From Evil

Psalm 37:25 -I have been young, and now am old; yet have I not seen the righteous forsaken, nor his seed begging bread.

You are the righteousness of God in Christ Jesus; that is why God will exempt you from anything that will want to make you beg in the name of Jesus! Shame will come to an end in your life!

Many people are walking the streets of life without hope; they cannot even give account of their lives but as a child of God, I came to tell you that your case is different! The entire world may look bleak but in the midst of gross darkness, God will cause you to be exempted! He will turn around every dark situation in your life to good in the name of Jesus!

Hardship is not new. There had been hardship in the time of Abraham that he had to relocate to Egypt because of famine. There was severe famine in the time of Isaac and God instructed him to remain in Philistine. Even in the time of Jacob, there was still famine that he had to send his children to Egypt buy food. In the time of Joseph, there was famine too and in the time of Jesus, there was no food in the wilderness.

In the above cases, God ensured that He separated His own. Therefore, what is happening now is not new. If God exempted his own in the midst of hardship, then the time of your exemption has come! You don’t pray against hardship; it is part of God’s agenda for the end time.

There was a time in Egypt when there was pestilence but the people of God dwelling in Egypt were exempted. You will not appreciate light until there is darkness. Sinners will not be humbled until there is hardship. It is in the midst of hardship, when they trust in their wealth and their wealth fail them as you blossom as a child of God, that they will say, “Of a truth, you serve a living God”. No matter the hardship in the world, you will be exempted; your case is different in Jesus name!

Ex. 8:22-23 -And I will sever in that day the land of Goshen, in which my people dwell, that no swarms of flies shall be there; to the end thou mayest know that I am the LORD in the midst of the earth. 23 And I will put a division between my people and thy people: tomorrow shall this sign be.

Ex. 9:26 – Only in the land of Goshen, where the children of Israel were, was there no hail.

This is how your case will look like! When the world is complaining of disaster and difficulty, you will be celebrating the goodness of God. No matter the retrenchment, it will not get to you! No matter the evil, you will be separated in the name of Jesus Christ! You will be exempted!

Gen. 47:27 -And Israel dwelt in the land of Egypt, in the country of Goshen; and they had possessions therein, and grew, and multiplied exceedingly.

The children of Israel grew and multiplied when there was famine in Egypt. This was because they were covenant children. Don’t mind what is happening in the world now; have no fear because your case is different. There is nothing new under the earth. If God has done something in the past, it will not be a problem for Him to repeat it. If God exempted His people when there was severe hardship, doing it again now will not be a new thing to Him.

You will have surplus when people are talking about lack; you will have more than enough! Not minding the city you are residing, the evil happening in that city will not happen to you! Though you are in this world, what is happening to the world cannot happen to you because your case is different! You are God’s own; you are programmed by God to be exempted.

No matter what is happening in this world, you don’t belong here because you dwell in a new-testament Goshen. Think like that, act like that, talk like that and it will be like that in Jesus name! Refuse to be afraid; you cannot suffer what the world suffers.

Isaiah 60:1-3, 10-11 -Arise, shine; for thy light is come, and the glory of the LORD is risen upon thee. 2 For, behold, the darkness shall cover the earth, and gross darkness the people: but the LORD shall arise upon thee, and his glory shall be seen upon thee. 3 And the Gentiles shall come to thy light, and kings to the brightness of thy rising. 10 And the sons of strangers shall build up thy walls, and their kings shall minister unto thee: for in my wrath I smote thee, but in my favour have I had mercy on thee. 11 Therefore thy gates shall be open continually; they shall not be shut day nor night; that men may bring unto thee the forces of the Gentiles, and that their kings may be brought.

You will hear good news because God’s glory will come upon you! It is the glory of the Lord that makes a difference in a man’s life. If God’s glory is upon you, you become a centre of attraction. When God’s glory follows a business man, he does not need to lobby; anywhere he goes, doors open for him. God’s glory will distinguish you and no devil can erase it! It will be as God has commanded!

Job 5:22 – At destruction and famine thou shalt laugh: neither shalt thou be afraid of the beasts of the earth.

In famine, you shall laugh! This means that when there is hardship in the world, you will be laughing because you will never be a victim. Destruction and famine is already in the world but God said you will laugh!

Can God lie? If God cannot lie, then it will be so! You shall laugh! God is going to make something happen in your life that people will hear and join you to laugh! You will laugh!!! When people are saying they cannot pay school fees; that is when you will be buying cars!!! When they say things are tough, you will be building houses! Biblical prophecies are more real than any prophecy from any man because heaven and earth shall pass away, but God’s words shall not pass away (Matt. 24:35)

Therefore, believe it, say it and act it and you will see it in Jesus name –Amen!!!

God bless you

Misplaced Priority by Pastor David Ibiyeomie

Proverbs 18:15 -An intelligent heart acquires knowledge, and the ear of the wise seeks knowledge.

Pastor David Ibiyeomie

Wisdom is not common sense; it is a very costly sense. Benjamin Franklin; one of the founding fathers of the United State of America, read his way to greatness. He did not wish for greatness; he worked himself into greatness. He had only 2years formal education but he founded a university which is still relevant up till date. When you are sold out to an undying quest for knowledge, you will earn your place in history.

1 Cor. 12:8 -For to one is given through the Spirit the utterance of wisdom and to another the utterance of knowledge according to the same Spirit,

You cannot talk of wisdom without mentioning knowledge. Wisdom is the principal raw material for the making of leaders and knowledge is the raw material for the making of wisdom. Therefore, leaders are made of applied knowledge.

Knowledge is not doing what you think; knowledge is doing what you have discovered to be right and it takes a lot of energy to do so. If anything can come out of Benjamin Franklin, then there is something inside of you; you just have to order your priority.

Students don’t fail just because they are not intelligent; most times, students fail in school because they have wrong priorities. They are in club when they ought to be in the Library studying. Wrong priority erodes one’s capacity to learn. Therefore, when a man misplaces his priority in his quest for leadership, he fails to become a leader; knowledge is key.

Eccl.7:12 -For the protection of wisdom is like the protection of money, and the advantage of knowledge is that wisdom preserves the life of him who has it.

Col.2:3 -In whom are hidden all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge.

If you truly have a quest for spiritual growth, then go for spiritual resources. If you have a quest for business breakthroughs, go for materials that will help you to actualize it. If you are not a committed reader, you will never emerge a leader. Therefore, reorder your priority if you want to experience greatness.

God bless you!

Lasting Wealth by Pastor David Ibiyeomie

Be Determined by Pastor David Ibiyeomie

Topic: Lasting Wealth

1 John 4:8 He that loveth not knoweth not God; for God is love.

God is love. God answers prayers but He is not prayers. He works miracles but He is not miracle; God is love. When you understand the love of God, what answers to God will answer to you. Until this love question is answered, your financial dominion will not be answered. The reason most people have not gotten business secrets is not because they are not born again, God reveals things to those that love Him.

1 Corinthians 2:9-10, 12 But as it is written, Eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered into the heart of man, the things which God hath prepared for them that love him. But God hath revealed them unto us by his Spirit: for the Spirit searcheth all things, yea, the deep things of God. Now we have received, not the spirit of the world, but the spirit which is of God; that we might know the things that are freely given to us of God.

Secrets revealed by God was what made men wealthy right from the Bible days. Secrets are revealed to those who love Him; not people who come to church. It is not about proximity but is connectivity; it is the relationship you have with God. The secret for wealth is loving God.

1 Corinthians 13:8 Charity (love) never faileth: but whether there be prophecies, they shall fail; whether there be tongues, they shall cease; whether there be knowledge, it shall vanish away.

When you walk in love, you cannot fail because God is love and God never fails. You cannot be sold out and not make impact in life. Solomon never prayed for money but was the richest man in his time.

1 Kings 3:3 And Solomon loved the LORD, walking in the statutes of David his father: only he sacrificed and burnt incense in high places.

Solomon loved the Lord and he showed his love through his actions, his giving the best to God. As a result, God gave him even those things he did not ask for.

1 Kings 3:13 And I have also given thee that which thou hast not asked, both riches, and honour: so that there shall not be any among the kings like unto thee all thy days.

You must have a revelation of God’s love to enjoy everlasting wealth. Struggling for wealth is a misplacement of priority; just love God.

Luke 1:45 And blessed is she that believed: for there shall be a performance of those things which were told her from the Lord.

Struggling to give is a proof that you do not love God. God loved the world and He laid down Jesus without struggle.

John 3:16 For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.

Whatever you cannot lay down disqualifies your love for God. Love is laying down something precious; your best. God never laid down Angel Gabriel or Angel Michael. He laid down Jesus, His only son. Most of us give but do not give their very best; they give our second best. Anyone you see getting wealthy laid the foundation of love and gave his best.

Romans 5:5 And hope maketh not ashamed; because the love of God is shed abroad in our hearts by the Holy Ghost which is given unto us.

The love of God is there already in your heart. May the Holy Spirit help you to give it expression in Jesus name-Amen!

God bless you.

Compete with Yourself by Pastor David Ibiyeomie

Topic: Compete with Yourself

Excellence is being truly the best at something, outstandingly successful. It is surpassing others in some good qualities. It is dong a common thing uncommonly well. Excellence is delivering first-class quality in everything you do.

Be Determined by Pastor David Ibiyeomie

Ecclesiastes 10:10 (KJV) If the iron be blunt, and he do not whet the edge, then must he put to more strength: but wisdom is profitable to direct.

If you don’t have a sharpened skill, you may have to put in more strength. The quality of your life is determined by your commitment to excellence. Seek to improve on what you’ve learnt. School will inform you but personal development will transform you. Maximize your potential. There is something you can do that you have not yet done. Challenge yourself to be better than your previous result. Compete with yourself; not people.

God is a God of excellence. When He created all things in Gen. 1, the Bible recorded that it was very good; that means it was excellent. When Jesus came to the earth, Mark 2:12 recorded that people were amazed at Him.

Mark 2:12b -…insomuch that they were all amazed, and glorified God, saying, we never saw it on this fashion.

To be excellent, you must learn to never give up. That someone is opposing you does not mean you should give up. Do not look at the Goliath; look at the crown after the Goliath. That things are not showing does not mean things are not working. To easily give up means to not get to the top.

Hebrews 10:36a (KJV) For ye have need of patience.

You must embrace self-discipline to excel. You may not like what you are doing but you should continue to get what you want. You easily excel when you have a good character. Pay the price to build character. Shallowness of character leads to pride, greed and abuse of power.

Character is having the will to do the right thing even when it is hard.

Philippians 3:8b (KJV) For whom I have suffered the loss of all things, and do count them but dung, that I may win Christ.

Challenge yourself, improve continuously from your present state and excel.

God bless you.

Topic: Be an Overcomer

In every warfare, until you are on the offensive, you cannot become a victor. In warfare, those who retreat and defend don’t win the battles of life. It is only those who are ready to advance that can put the enemy under check. An army that must win in warfare has to be on the offensive.Satan is the one behind every killing, stealing and destruction. Though he is not powerful; he thrives in subtlety. He is the arch-enemy of the believers; he capitalizes on the ignorance of the believers. He has been a master deceiver; very subtle. His major weapon is deception.Eph. 4:27 –Neither give place to the devil.

Pastor David Ibiyeomie

Satan tempted Jesus with turning stone to bread because he knew Jesus was hungry as a result of the fast; so, he uses your weakness to attack you.

Matt. 4:4 –But he answered and said, It is written, Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of God. Jesus responded with the Word of God; so when you give the devil the written word, you cannot be written off. You don’t converse or chat with the devil; you give him back the Word of God. Never try to deal with the devil outside the word of God. It is the understanding of God’s word that permanently puts the devil under check. Satan usually take advantage of people’s ignorance. Every time you are not concentrating on God’s word, satan will deceive you with something. So, until you arrest him, you cannot take charge because his ministry is to kill, steal and destroy.

One of the areas through which satan and his cohorts gain advantage over ignorant believers is through insensitivity to divine signal. You can forestall or escape any work of the devil through divine signal. Through divine signal, Elisha knew that the enemies were coming to attack him and he prayed that they go blind. Many fare falling prey to the devil through insensitivity. You cannot have the Holy Spirit in you and not hear when He speaks. Every time the Holy Ghost gives you a signal, be very sensitive.

Acts 20:22-23– And now, behold, I go bound in the spirit unto Jerusalem, not knowing the things that shall befall me there: 23 Save that the Holy Ghost witnesseth in every city, saying that bonds and afflictions abide me.

Apostle Paul in the above scripture, was insensitive to the voice and warning of the Holy Ghost not to go to Jerusalem and never came back alive. When you play with divine signal, you may head for devastation. Most tragedy is because of insensitivity. May you never be deaf anymore in Jesus name!

I pray for you today, whatever is evil will not see you! You are touch-not to evil; even poverty will be far from you! All arrows of the wicked will not see you. The aircraft, car or boat you board shall arrive safely. Evil will clear from your path henceforth in Jesus name –Amen!!!

Topic: Be Determined

Determination means the act of coming to a decision of fixing or setting a purpose. It also means quality that makes you continue trying to do or achieve something that is difficult. Determination is the vision that is fueled by passion.

Be Determined by Pastor David Ibiyeomie

Nothing great can be achieved without determination. What will separate the successful from the failure is determination.

Thomas Edison, the inventor of the light bulb and one thousand and ninety-one other revolutionary technologies persisted through so many failures but was determined; he never gave up on his dreams.

Obstacles are only stepping stones for miracles. As a child of God, you should have long-ranged goals that will keep you from frustration of short-ranged failures.

Hebrews.12:2 fixing our eyes on Jesus, the pioneer and perfecter of faith. For the joy set before him he endured the cross, scorning its shame, and sat down at the right hand of the throne of God.

Jesus did not allow His temporary challenge to affect His long-term vision, so do not allow short term challenges to affect your long-term goal.

Genesis 26:12-22- READ

Despite all the challenges Isaac faced while he dug the wells, he was determined not to give up and he had his peace. No matter the challenges, never lose sight of your goals.

Proverbs.24:16- For a just man falleth seven times, and riseth up again: but the wicked shall fall into mischief.

Without determination there will be no success, what makes things happen is determination.

A wise man said “many of the world great failures did not realize how close they were to success when they gave up”.

It is not because things are difficult that we do not dare, it is because we do not dare, that things are difficult. A wise man said, “I will go anywhere as long as it is forward”. Therefore, be determined!!!

You can be talented and intelligent without reaching the top. You may have all the quality but without determination, it will amount to nothing. Until you make up your mind never to quit, you will remain a part of the 95% of people who’ll never take success. Don’t settle for mediocrity; stop complaining about how bad life has treated you. The world is not blessed by talkers, it is blessed by those who are determined to make success out of it. So perceiver, keep the momentum going until you cross the finish line, and I see you succeed in the name of Jesus!!!

People and things can stop you temporarily, but only you can stop yourself permanently. Determination starts with a desire. Determination will birth ability, ability will propel action and action will generate results. Be determined that no matter what, you won’t give up. Don’t let disappointment, discouragement, failure, problems, tough times, opposition, misfortune or defeat keep you down. Refuse to quit. Quitters never win and winners never quit. Persevere against all odds and succeed.

Genesis.32:24-29- READ

Jacob refused to take a NO for an answer, and he later became a nation. May your story change after today in the name of Jesus!!! Avoid Excuses by Pastor David Ibiyeomie

Push your way through, break through the crowd; there may be challenges but don’t give up. When you are trying to go up in life, there comes a period when it looks as if nothing is working but if you’re determined not to give up, after a while, you will enter into your rest. That your life is not the way you want it now doesn’t mean you should throw in the towel. Satan will not oppose you if you don’t have something great. Refuse to quit!!!

Determination can change an individual to a nation. If you look again at the story of Jacob, he encountered the Angel as one man and left as Israel, a nation. If you want to be great, then don’t give up. You can be small but with determination, life will turn around. Do not allow challenges weigh you down.

The reason you are going through all these challenge is because God wants to make you great. And the devil doesn’t attack anyone without a great future. Anytime satan attacks, just know that God is involved. Don’t forget that the bible says that “a great and effectual door is open unto you but there are many adversaries”. Every opposition is contesting for your position.

It is not late yet, you can open a new chapter for your life today!

God bless you

The favour of God can be described as tangible evidence that a person has the approval of the Lord. It is the special affection of God toward you that releases an influence on you, so that others are inclined to like you, or to cooperate with you.

The favour of God is what determines the limits of every man’s destiny. Once you are favoured, you are made. Favour is the mother of destiny. Favour is what converts labour into fortune. It enhances the value of your labour. The limit of your destiny is defined by the level of favour operating in your life.

Pastor David Ibiyeomie

When God’s favour is at work in your life, it makes you prosper wherever you are; even in strange lands. Favour made Daniel to prosper in Babylon, it distinguished Isaac in Philistine and made Joseph to prosper in Potiphar’s house. Even pharaoh handed the whole Egypt to Joseph just by the favour of God. That is why I know that the favour of God will distinguish you today in the name of Jesus!

When supernatural comes, natural laws are suspended. By the supernatural favour of God, things will turn for your sake! Today’s favour will change your story! Natural laws will be suspended for your sake in the name of Jesus!

When God’s favour is at work in your life, your promotion is certain. Joseph was kept in prison and he prospered even inside the prison. The bottler forgot Joseph when he went back to the palace but God did not forget him. You may be delayed but your blessing must surely come to pass.

Psalm 75:6-7 – For promotion cometh neither from the east, nor from the west, nor from the south. 7 But God is the judge: he putteth down one, and setteth up another.

God supernaturally arranged Joseph’s lifting and he was remembered supernaturally. Today, things might be looking as if God has forgotten about you, I came to announce to you that God will remember you now! The same God that remembered Joseph at the appointed time is remembering you now! This is your appointed time to be remembered for favour! There will be no more delay! Begin to enjoy supernatural promotion from now on in the name of Jesus the Christ –Amen!

God bless you.
