Sound Mind (Daily Devotional)
Yesterday
Sound Mind (Daily Devotional)
Greetings and thank you for joining us today for our daily devotional. This week, we are talking about overcoming wrong thoughts and the third insight that we want to bring to us from God’s word is that we have a sound mind. One of the problems many people express is that they are not able to focus or what we would refer to as, they tend to have wandering mind, it is all over the place and they are not able to focus and suddenly goes off into strange thoughts, wrong thoughts and it is wandering here and there and unable to focus. Now, we got to deal with that. The bible tells us in 2 Timothy chapter 1, verse 17, ‘For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind.’ That means a mind that has a sound concentration, understanding and focused. This mind doesn’t wander here and there, running off into strange and wrong thoughts, no, it is a sound mind. So, you begin to affirm about your own mind, God has given me a sound mind, that what the bible says, a sound mind, concentration, focus, memory, it is alert and sharp and a mind that will stay focused, that can concentrate, it is not a mind that is wandering here and there, it is a mind that can concentrate. So, you declare that I have a sound mind, a sound concentration, I can focus, I reject everything that causes disturbances in my mind, that causes my mind to wander here and there, that causes my mind to think wrong things, no, I have a sound mind and concentration. I can focus my thoughts on things that are good, pure, holy, pleasing to God. Take hold of God’s word and declare that over your mind, you have a sound mind with a sound concentration and you will focus your mind on things that are pleasing to God. Let’s pray, Father, we thank you for your word and we declare over our minds that our mind is holy ground and we have a sound mind with which we can concentrate and focus on things that please you, thank you for that, in Jesus’s name, Amen.

Your Mind Is Holy Ground (Daily Devotional)

Your Mind Is Holy Ground (Daily Devotional)
Greetings and thank you for joining us today in our daily devotional and we thank you for the opportunity to come to you, spend these few moments with you. This week, we are talking about overcoming wrong thoughts. A wrong thought as we classify it is a thought that doesn’t agree with God’s ways and thoughts. So, it doesn’t agree with what the bible teaches us. How do we ensure that we align all our thoughts to God’s word and ways and thoughts? Yesterday, we mentioned that we must take charge of our mind, recognize that your mind is yours, you are in charge. You don’t give up control of your mind to someone else or something else. Secondly, you determine that your mind is holy ground. The bible tells us in 1 Thessalonians chapter 4, verse 3 that this is the will of God, your sanctification or you being completely set apart for God. For God has not called us to uncleanness but holiness, so this is God’s will that everything about us is holy, set apart to be holy, so, that includes our mind. So, God is saying, this is my will for you that you keep your mind holy, so you agree with God and say, my mind is holy ground. So, you begin to affirm and come into agreement with God and say, my mind is holy ground, only thoughts that are aligned to God’s word, ways and thoughts will occupy my mind. My mind is mine and I’m in charge. Secondly, my mind is holy ground, it is consecrated to God and only thoughts that are in agreement to God’s word, ways and thoughts are going to occupy my mind. So, now you are taking charge and you are deciding that your mind is going to be holy ground, it is going to be an area of your life that is going to be fully aligned to God. So, again that is a decision you make and that is the will of God for us. So, this is step two, your mind is hoy ground, affirm that, my mind is holy ground. Let’s pray, Father, we consecrate our mind, our reasoning, intellect, thoughts, our analysis, our reflections and everything that goes on in our mind, we consecrate it to you and may only what is aligned to your word, ways and thoughts, only what is pleasing to you, occupy our minds, we declare our minds as holy ground, in Jesus’s name, Amen.

Your Mind Is Yours! (Daily Devotional)

Your Mind Is Yours! (Daily Devotional)
Greetings and it is our joy to be able to come to you this week and spend time each day this week and also take a moment to pray with you. We are going to talk about overcoming wrong thoughts throughout this week and I would like to share a few insights form the word of God that would help us in this area. When we talk about wrong thoughts, we are talking about not only evil thoughts, things that are bad, it could be lustful thoughts, but we are also talking about all kinds of other wrong thoughts which could be thoughts of anger, hatred towards people, thoughts of bitterness, unforgiveness, wanting to take revenge, any thought that is contrary to God and His ways, we would classify as a wrong thought. God has His ways and His thoughts and anything that is not aligned to God’s ways and thoughts, we will call a wrong thought. It could have a wide range, whether its wrong thoughts of lust and evil or wrong thoughts of anger, revenge, hated or intending to do wrong. So, what we are going to learn this week is how can we make sure that out thoughts stay aligned to God’s ways and thoughts? So, that is the standard and how do we know God’s ways and thought? Through the word of God. The first important thing for us to understand is this, your mind is yours. You need to say this, my mind is mine, God gave it to me and therefore I’m going to decide what goes on in my mind. Sometimes, people say and express that they feel powerless about the kind of thoughts that come into their mind, they don’t know where it comes from, they say, my mind is suddenly flooded with bad, evil, wrong thoughts, thoughts intending to wrong and evil and so on and so forth, it almost seems like they are helpless, as though something else is overpowering their mind. But that is a lie, the truth is God created you, spirit, soul and body. Your soul/ mind belongs to you and you are the one who is in charge, so, it’s time to take charge of your mind. So, how do you do this? You say, God has given me my mind, my mind is yours, I will determine what goes on in my mind, I will not let the devil nor his bombardment of evil thoughts, or other people determine what goes on in my mind. God sanctifies you, spirit, soul and body. 1 Thessalonians chapter 5, verse 23, ‘God is the one working in you, spirit, soul and body, He has given you your mind, you take charge, that is step one. Let’s pray, Father, even as we learn to align all our thoughts to your ways and thoughts. Help us to take charge of our mind, not to give up control of our mind to the devil or to other people but you’ve given us our mind, help us to be in charge of what goes on in our minds, in Jesus’s name, Amen.

God Restores And Redeems (Daily Devotional)

God Restores And Redeems (Daily Devotional)
Shalom and welcome to the last episode in this series, where we’ve been having a wonderful time looking at the life of the judges and learning some valuable lessons for our lives here today. For our focus today, our last judge that we are going to be meditating on is Samson. Samson was the last judge of Israel. Just before the kings began to rule Israel, he came into leadership. He was chosen by God to be a judge and a leader of the Israelites, at the time when they were oppressed by the Philistines. The account of Samson shows us how he violated God’s law many times. He violated God’s law by marrying pagans; later after he had killed a lion, he ate the honey found on the carcass, something that was prohibited for a Nazarite and other situations as well. Samson willingly went into these situations that led to sin but each time, we see that God used him for His glory. We see that even through Samson’s life, even his sin couldn’t prevent God’s sovereignty from coming to pass. Samson’s most famous story revolves around his relationship with Delilah who was persuaded by the Philistines to discover the source of his strength. Ater many attempts, Delilah convinces Samson to reveal the secret and this led to the capture of Samson by the Philistines. They blinded him, imprisoned him and put him in a place where he was imprisoned. In a final act of strength, we see that Samson prays to God for his strength to return one last time and he pulls down the pillars of a Philistines temple killing himself and many of his enemies. We see a prayer there, Samson says in Judges chapter 16, verse 28, ‘Then Samson called to the LORD, saying, “O Lord GOD, remember me, I pray! Strengthen me, I pray, just this once, O God, that I may with one blow take vengeance on the Philistines for my two eyes!”’ In the midst of these failures, Samson experiences a moment of repentance and redemption. As he prays to God for strength one last time, God grants him the ability to bring down the Philistines. Samson’s story illustrates God’s ability to redeem even the most broken and flawed people. No matter how far we have fallen or how grievous our sins or our mistakes maybe, God is ready to forgive, He redeems us and restores us when we return to Him in repentance. Samson’s story offers a story of hope even in our weakest moments. As we reflect on the life of Samson, may we learn from his strengths as well as his weakness. May we find hope in God’s ability to redeem us and to restore us, even when we are broken and flawed. Let us rely on the strength of God to overcome temptation, to walk in His ways and to fulfill His purpose in our lives. Shall we pray together, Heavenly Father, we thank you for he lessons we learnt. Thank you that when we come to you in repentance, you are there to forgive, redeem and restore us. May we walk in your ways, may we not be led into temptations, may we stand by your word and may we be completely integral to you. Thank you for hearing our prayer and what we have learnt through this week, in Jesus’s name we pray, Amen.

Jephthah - God Redeems Brokenness (Daily Devotional)

Jephthah - God Redeems Brokenness (Daily Devotional)
Shalom and it is good to have you here, join us at a time where we are meditating on God’s word. Over the last week, we have been looking at the book of judges, picking up the lives of some judges and seeing what we can learn from them. For our devotion today, we are going to be looing at another judge by name, Jephthah. Jephthah served as a judge over Israel for 6 years following the leadership of another judge, Jaer. Following the patterns of the leaders in the book of judges, Jephthah was an unlikely leader. When we read Jephthah’s situation, we read that his early years were marked by rejection and hardship as he was born to a prostitute and he was driven out by his family. He fled from his brothers and lived in the land of Tob where he had gathered a few vain men, a few rebels and went out on raids with them and this is a time when God calls him. We read in Judges chapter 11, verses 1 and 2, ‘Now Jephthah the Gileadite was a mighty man of valor, but he was the son of a harlot; and Gilead begot Jephthah. Gilead’s wife bore sons; and when his wife’s sons grew up, they drove Jephthah out, and said to him, “You shall have no inheritance in our father’s house, for you are the son of another woman.”’ We see how he was rejected, probably a very broken person himself. It was about this time that the Ammonites began their war against Israel. When the Ammonites attacked Israel, the elders of Israel sent for Jephthah in the land of Tob. The elders of his tribe invite him back to fight the Ammonites. The elders of the Gilead offer to serve Jephthah if he helped them to defeat their enemies and Jephthah accepts this offer. Despite his painful past, God saw potential in Jephthah and raised him up to become a mighty judge in Israel and He gives him victory over the Ammonites. Like Jephthah, many of us may have experienced brokenness or rejection, maybe because of our past mistakes and sometimes maybe not because of our own doings but these haunt us. However, Jephthah’s story reminds us that our past doesn’t have to define our future. God is in the business of redemption and He can transform our pain into purpose. He can transform our scars into testimonies and our weaknesses into strengths. His story teaches us that while people may reject us, may set us apart, may underestimate our worth, God sees us differently. He has a purpose for our lives. Jephthah’s story teaches us that God specializes in redeeming brokenness and uses imperfect people for His glory. He teaches us that our worth and identity is found in our relationship with God. So, in every moment of your rejection and doubt, remember that our worth is not determined by human acceptance or affirmation but because of our identity as children of God. Let’s pray together, Heavenly Father, we bring each of our brokenness and our scars to you knowing that you will use each of that for your glory for great things. May we stand in alignment with the way that you see us and bring victory for your name, thank you for healing our brokenness and strengthening us, in Jesus’s name we pray, Amen.

God Sees Beyond Our Weakness (Daily Devotional)
6d ago
God Sees Beyond Our Weakness (Daily Devotional)
Shalom and welcome once again, as we meditate and look into God’s word and learn from the judges of Israel, take lessons for our own lives. Today, we are going to be looking at another judge, Gideon. We have been following some of the judges that we can learn from, from their accounts. When we look at the time of Gideon, we see that the Israelites once again did what was evil in the sight of the Lord and the Lord hands them over to an enemy for seven years and this time it being, the Midianites. The Midianites were extremely powerful and they oppressed the Israelites mercilessly. Every year, around harvest time, these Midianites would invade Israel. They would come in like locusts, ravaging the land, they would carry everything or they would destroy the things that they left behind. The bible reports that it was so bad that many of the Israelites used to leave their homes and hide in caves and strongholds because they feared for their lives. It is at this time, God calls Gideon, a judge. Giedion whose name means cutter or the feller of trees, he belonged to an undistinguished family and he expresses of how he sees himself as unfit for God’s service. God sees him very differently. God saw him as a mighty man of valor and urges him to go in the might of the Lord to save Israel from that hand of the oppressors. Gideon looks inwards, he looks at his limits, he focuses on the nots, his attention is on his weakest clan and being least in his father’s house, his attention is on his limitations, his doubts, his insecurities, but we see God looks at him with potential and equips him to take on that mission. Gideon asked God for signs to ensure his call and mission and God on the other hand puts him in situations which needed him to operate in faith. Imagine entering a battle with just three hundred men against an enemy troop that is described as thick as locusts and as countless as the sand on the seashore, but God wanted to show Gideon that the battle was not won on his own strength but that of the Lord’s. We see that there was peace in Israel for 40 years during the life of Gideon. No matter how small, settled, weak and doubtful you and I might feel, the story of Gideon teaches us that God doesn’t see us the way we see ourselves. He sees us with greater potential and He is the one who will patiently work with us and shape us. All we have to do is be willing to go in the strength of the Lord, take one step forward at a time and know that God will do the rest. With our faith in God, even our weaknesses can turn into strengths. Instead of limiting us, these are integral parts of who God creates us to be. Let’s pray together, Heavenly Father, we thank you that you see us very differently from the way you look at ourselves. Thank you that we can go in your strength and might. Thank you for what you call each one of us in the mission you have for us. May we look to you for your strength and power to lead us in every mission that you’ve called us, may we walk in your purposes with strength, in Jesus’s name we pray, Amen.

God Moves Through His Spirit (Daily Devotional)
1w ago
God Moves Through His Spirit (Daily Devotional)
Shalom and welcome to another episode of Living Supernaturally. We trust you are enjoying and learning through the book of Judges. The last two days, we went through and learnt lessons from two of the judges, Othniel and Ahud. Today, we are going to be looking at Deborah. We see that God moves in her life through His Spirit. The story of Deborah is seen in Judges’ chapter 4 and 5 and like many other stories, we do see the Israelites sinned against the Lord and He sells them to a nation. This goes on for twenty years until the Israelites cried out to the Lord for help because they are under the oppression of the Canaanites. Deborah as a judge, is best known for being one of the few woman prophetesses of the bible and the only woman judge in the book of Judges. She is also known to be one of the woman warriors. So, Deborah became a judge in Israel at a time when the nation faced oppression from the Canaanites and God allows this because of their disobedience. We read in her account the many things that the Lord did through her for the people of Israel. We see that the Lord used her to speak justice to the people of Israel, to set her people free and defeat the king of Canaan, the Lord puts her in a place of authority and leadership to lead the army of Israel, the Lord used her to bring the message to Barak that the Lord would deliver the king of Canaan and the Lord used her to prophesy that the honor for the victory would belong to a woman. When we read in Judges chapter 4, verse 9, ‘So she said, “I will surely go with you; nevertheless, there will be no glory for you in the journey you are taking, for the LORD will sell Sisera into the hand of a woman.” Then Deborah arose and went with Barak to Kedesh.’ Through this account, we can see that Deborah was operating in the wisdom of God and was led by the Spirit. It is the Spirit of God that does the work regardless of the person or the instrument the Lord chooses to use. Whether it is a man or woman, weak or strong, confident or hesitant, all are strong when they are moved by the Spirit of God and filled with His strength. Deborah was a woman of influence and her spiritual mantle created an atmosphere of courage for both men and women and we see Israel was undisturbed for 40 years. She had strategic counsel and wisdom for the people of Israel. She guided them in matters of governance, justice and warfare. We see how she relied on the Spirit of God for wisdom and discernment to offer that advice and wise decision. This is a great example for each of us to emulate. Like Deborah, we need to be in communion with the Spirit so we can influence others and live out the purposes of God. Deborah, being a woman in her time, relied on the calling of God and she went about it with all her heart, put every confidence in the Lord as she went about doing it. Her reliance was not on cultural beliefs but her focus was on the direction of the Spirit of God. So, let’s keep focusing and keep drawing our strength and wisdom from the Spirit of God. Let’s pray, Heavenly Father, we thank you for the lessons we are learning. As Deborah looked to you and the way you gave her counsel and wisdom to lead a nation, we pray that we will tap into the Spirit’s power in the things we need to do that we will see your wisdom and grace in all that we do, thank you for hearing our prayer, in Jesus’s name, Amen.

The Power Of God (Daily Devotional)
May 20 2024
The Power Of God (Daily Devotional)
Shalom and thank you for joining us today, as we look through the book of Judges. It is amazing to see the lives of people in the bible and the lessons that we can learn from them. Over the last two days, we had an overview of what the judges did and the faithfulness of God. We did see yesterday about the first judge, Othniel. Once Othniel died, the judge who we looked at yesterday, Israel quickly went back to the same cycle of idolatry and rebellion. And because of this sin that Israel committed, God strengthened the king of Moab. As a result, Israel was conquered by this pagan king and they had to serve him for eighteen years, under oppression until God raised another judge by name, Ahud to deliver them. Ahud was the son of Gera and belonged to the tribe of Benjamin. We read that he was a left-handed man. This detail will become important to the success of his mission. This story really isn’t about Ahud or his power but it is how great God is. When we read in Judges chapter 3, verse 15, ‘But when the children of Israel cried unto the Lord, the Lord raised them up a deliverer, Ehud the son of Gera, a Benjamite, a man lefthanded: and by him the children of Israel sent a present unto Eglon the king of Moab.’ This account of Ahud tells us, like we read that he was left-handed. We may think that there isn’t a big deal in this but it was Ahud’s left handedness that allowed him to hide his sword on his right thigh where probably the guard wasn’t likely to look. When Ahud was checked for weapons, his sword was apparently missed by the guards because it was in an unexpected location. He visits the Moabite king under the pretense of paying a tribute and it was this left handedness that allows him to catch the Moabite king by surprise with an unexpected thrust of the sword and had him killed. When the kings servanats find out later, Ahud had already escaped and had rallied the people of Israel. The Israelites then marched forward and cut off the Moabites and killed them in battle. Once they were free from the Moabite’s rule, the Israelites enjoyed 80 years of peace and it was the longest period of peace during the time of the judges. What do we see through the account of Ahud? We see the power of God and how He changed the entire course of the nation in a single day, when He responds to the cry of His people. Ahud responded to God’s call with obedience and courage and we see the power of God coming through these events. He was confident that the power of God backed him, as he was a lone man who walked into the enemy’s palace, assassinated the king and walked out without being captured. This was probably a very unexpected event that involved a great risk, we see the power of God there. This battle changed the next 80 years of Israel’s history. It shows how God in His power, changed the nation and Ahud’s success is the story of freedom. Just as God had redeemed Israel from Pharaoh’s and the land of Egypt, we see God redeemed Israel from the Moabite king. We may not be in situations like the judge, Ahad yet we serve the same God whose power is available in all situations. God leads is in His purposes because of His power and let us partner with God to see miraculous things happen. Let’s pray together, Heavenly Father, we acknowledge and stand in awe at your power and the way that your power leads us through. We pray that we will stand confident knowing that it is you who leads us through every battle and struggle. Thank you for the victory that comes from the power of God, in Jesus’s name we pray, Amen.

Be Attentive To God’s  Call (Daily Devotional)
May 19 2024
Be Attentive To God’s Call (Daily Devotional)
Shalom and welcome to another episode of Living Supernaturally, we trust that you are growing in the word of God. Today and in the week going forward, we are looking at the judges and looking at lessons that we can learn from some of the lives of the judges. So, through this week, we will be looking at some of the main judges that God had raised to deliver Israel and today, in our focus, we are going to be looking at the first judge whose name was Othniel. The judges, as we read were very fascinating people who were leaders of the Israelites, at a time that they had had no kings. We see that the judges sometimes were often prophets, who were instructed by God, was inspired by the Spirit of God, they could be also civic leaders who were given authority to judge Israel as God's mouthpiece. Some of them served as military commanders and led Israel in battle. There were 12 judges in all but today our devotional is focused on the first judge of Israel, Othniel who was also Caleb's nephew. We see that he overpowered the enemy with the power of God and the land rested for 40 years until his death. Othniel was a judge and a leader who was preceded by Joshua and his name means the strength of God. When the Israelites cried out to God for deliverance from their oppressors, Othniel answered the call. He was attentive to the call of God and through him, God liberated the Israelites from the hand of the Mesopotamians. We read that the Spirit of God was upon Othniel which means he was empowered and guided by the Holy Spirit to fulfill the task that God had appointed him to do, which was to rescue the Israelites from the hand of their enemies. We see that the Spirit of the Lord coming upon Othniel just signified an enablement for a specific purpose and a mission. Now this empowerment was not something Othniel could do on his own, he did not achieve it on his own merits but it was given to him by God in response to his faithfulness and willingness to obey God's call. We see Othniel paid attention and was willing to obey God's call. Othniel's faithfulness in obedience to God's call reminds each of us of the importance of paying attention to what God calls each of us to do and not just to be pay attention but to also respond with courage and with obedience because when we obey God's call, we can be sure that the empowering comes from God, by the Spirit of God. Whatever the task is, God will empower those He calls. If He calls you for a mission, He is sure to empower you as well. All we need to do is to be vigilant to pay attention to His call like Othniel did. Like Othniel, you and I are called to trust in God's strength and provision as we step out in faith to fulfill the purpose He has for our lives. Let's pray together, Heavenly Father, we come to you Lord with what we have learned from the life of Othniel, the way he paid attention to your call, the way he was willing to do what you called him to do. We pray that you will give us the courage, you will empower us to do things when you have called us to. Thank you that you continue to be faithful to our lives, may we step out bold into the purposes of God, in Jesus’ name we pray, Amen.

Faithfulness Of God (Daily Devotional)
May 19 2024
Faithfulness Of God (Daily Devotional)
Shalom and it's so good to be here with you to once again meditate God's word. This week, we are going to be looking at an interesting book and looking at a few lives of some people in the Bible. We're going to be learning a couple of lessons from the book of Judges. When we look at what happened preceded in Judges, we see Joshua, who was the successor of Moses, who led the people of Israel into the promised land. He had led them in battles and was instrumental in dividing the land among the tribes of Israel. Joshua towards the end of his life urges the people to fear the Lord, to love Him and to serve Him in sincerity and in truth. But after the generation along with Joshua passes away, the people of Israel rebelled and started following other gods. The book of Judges records a recuring cycle in which the Israelites repeatedly turn away from God to worship other idols and consequently the Lord allows nations to conquer and oppress them. Now, despite this repeated disobedience and idolatry, we see the faithfulness of God. We see God being faithful to His covenant promises and we see that when the Israelites cry out, God sent judges to deliver them from their enemies. We read in Judges chapter 2, verse 16, ‘the Lord raised up judges who delivered them out of the hand of those who plundered them.’ During the judges lifetime, there was peace and the Israelites remained faithful. However,, after the death of the judge they once again strayed from the Lord. This pattern repeats itself throughout that entire era of the judges. While some of the judges led the entire nation, some governed only a few tribes and at this time, Israel was a very loosely bound group of tribes. You would see that some of the judges were commanders, some of them were prophets. We notice and we see through the book of Judges that this cycle of disobedience, of oppression, of repentance and deliverance being seen portrayed in the book over and over again and this can offer such valuable lessons for us today. We see that the faithfulness of God as a common theme in the entire Bible. God's faithfulness in redemption is something we see throughout the books of the Bible and it culminates in the ultimate redemption through Jesus Christ. Just as God raised judges to deliver the Israelites, He sent Jesus, His Son to deliver humanity, to rescue humanity from sin and from death. Despite our failings, God remains faithful to His promises and He continues to extend His grace and mercy to all who call upon Him. God's love is unfailing and in His faithfulness, He has redeemed us as well. So, what do we learn from the judges? We must be quick to turn to Him in repentance and trust, knowing that He is always ready to rescue and restore us. Just as God was faithful to forgive and redeem the Israelites, He is always ready to forgive and redeem us, when we turn to Him in repentance. Let's pray together, Heavenly Father, we thank you for what we are going to be meditating on from the book of Judges. Thank you that you are a faithful God, a God who continues to restore our lives. We pray that you will teach us to come to you in repentance because we know that you are always there to redeem and restore us, we thank you Lord Jesus, in your name we pray, Amen.

Resist (Daily Devotional)

Resist (Daily Devotional)
Greetings and thank you so much for journeying with us throughout this week, where we have been talking about overcoming pornography and I believe that the truth of God’s word and the anointing of His Spirit has ministered to you and you have begun to experience freedom and I want to encourage you to walk in this freedom for the rest of your life. Don’t ever fall back into this addiction, you don’t need to, it doesn’t do you any good and you can live victorious in Jesus. I want to close this week by reminding us of what the bible teaches us in James chapter 4, verse 7, it says, ‘submit to God, resist the devil and he will flee from you.’ The devil is very faithful in coming to tempt us, he is going to keep coming; as long as we are on this earth, he is going to try to put those temptations on our path, but the bible tells us to live a life in submission to God and to keep on resisting the devil. No matter how many times he comes back with the temptation, you just stand your ground and say, no devil, I’m not giving you any chance, resist the devil, use the word of God, stay submitted and consecrated to Jesus, let the Holy Spirit fill your life and you say no to every temptation, any time it comes, resist the devil. Sometimes, it may come through people, some friend may say, hey, come let’s do this and that, some friends may try to influence you. Proverbs chapter 1, verse 10 says, ‘my son, if sinners entice you, do not consent.’ So, even if some people are trying to influence you, don’t give in to that, they want to do it, it is up to them, you don’t let them influence you, you don’t fall into their trap. So, you stand your ground, live your life completely free. We can be completely free from addiction to pornography, it doesn’t have to have any place in our lives, that is the way Jesus wants us to live. Let’s pray, Lord, we thank you that whom the Son sets free is free indeed and I declare complete freedom in each of our lives for where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty and freedom, the anointing of the Holy Spirit destroys every yolk. We thank you for your word and your Holy Spirit, may we live victorious lives, in Jesus’s name, Amen.

Stay Filled (Daily Devotional)
May 16 2024
Stay Filled (Daily Devotional)
Greetings and thank you for journeying with us throughout this week in these devotionals where we talking about overcoming pornography. Another very important key for you and me as believers to overcome sin, to overcome our flesh and the wrong desires of our flesh is to stay filled with the Holy Spirit. The apostle Paul teaches us in Galatians chapter 5, verses 16 and 17 and the entire passage there in Galatians chapter 5, it's worth reading it but he said this, ‘walk in the Spirit and you will not fulfill the desires of the flesh.’ So, we live yielded to the Holy Spirit, strengthened and empowered, led and under his influence, then we have the strength to overcome the unclean desires of the flesh. So, whenever you feel tempted, when the thought comes and you feel tempted, you feel your emotions being aroused, you feel like wanting to go and engage in pornography, you say, Holy Spirit, help me! A very simple prayer, four words, Holy Spirit, help me! Holy Spirit, please help me, please strengthen me, that means you are depending on the Holy Spirit that He fills you, He empowers you to say no, to keep your flesh in control. So, Holy Spirit I submit to you, Holy Spirit I bring my emotions in your subjection, Holy Spirit I bring my appetites in submission to you, Holy Spirit fill me; whatever simple prayer you want but lean on the Holy Spirit. Draw from Him, draw His strength. If you walk in the Spirit, you will not fulfill the lust of the flesh. Those who are Christ’, they have crucified the flesh with its affections and desire, how? By the power of the Holy Spirit. So, stay for filled with the Holy Spirit, let the Holy Spirit control you, let Him strengthen you, let Him influence you and you stay in touch. Keep drawing from His power by this simple prayer, Holy Spirit, help me and He'll help you to overcome and live free from this addictive behavior. Let's pray, Holy Spirit, we ask that you will fill each of us and especially in this area, flood our sexual appetites, our emotions, let them become holy, let them become consecrated, reclaim this territory and let it be holy ground, let every unclean spirit be expelled and let our emotions be in submission to you, in Jesus’ name, Amen.

No Chance (Daily Devotional)
May 15 2024
No Chance (Daily Devotional)
Greetings and thank you for the opportunity to come to you today and spend these few moments with you. This week, we are talking about overcoming pornography and just sharing a few insights from the word of God that will help us be free and build us up because the truth of God’s word will demolish and expose any unclean spirits that are controlling us and bring complete deliverance by the power of His Holy Spirit. A very important thing the bible teaches us, I’m going to reference two verses, Romans chapter 13, verse 14, the bible says, ‘make no provision for the flesh, to fulfill its lusts.’ Or to put it in simple language, don't give your flesh any opportunity. Jesus put it like this in Matthew chapter 5, verses 27 to30, ‘He said, if your right eye cause you to sin take it off, if your right hand causes you to sin cut it off.’ In other words, anything that is causing you to do something wrong, you deal with it with a sense of seriousness, you got to amputate, cut it out of your life. Now, when we talk about pornography usually there are certain things, maybe routines or habits or even things that we use which then become, which then give the opportunity to the flesh to indulge in pornography. For example, if there's a certain time of day or night when you are alone and that's when you normally engage in pornography; so, what does that mean? It means you've given yourself that provision and the Bible says make no provision for the flesh. Are we using your laptop or some device on which you watch these things? That device is now a provision in your life and you've got to stop that, I'm not saying we never use our laptop for work, of course but you've got to make sure that you don't let that enter into your life and take you down the wrong path. So, make no provision for the flesh. So, you need to think about how you can change your routine, change your schedule, change where you are working on your laptop so that you're not giving yourself the opportunity to go down that path of indulging in pornography. Deal with these things with severity, pluck it out, cut it off is what Jesus said. So, look at what's going on in your life and give yourself no chance, no opportunity to be exposed to going down that path where you indulge in pornography. Rework your schedule, rework where you work and how you engage with the devices so that you protect yourself, take that step. Let's pray, Father, we thank you for the truth of your word and right now, I pray for those who been listening this week and I declare in the name of Jesus, that by the power of your word and by the power of your Spirit, every yoke of pornography over their lives be broken and in the name of Jesus, I expel every unclean spirit, every spirit that has been controlling their sexual appetites, their minds, their emotions, in the name of Jesus, I command you to leave and Lord by your Spirit let them be 100% permanently free and help them to make the changes they need to make, so that they make no provision for the flesh, in Jesus’s name, Amen.

Thought Life (Daily Devotional)

Thought Life (Daily Devotional)
Greetings and thank you once again for the opportunity to come to you today and spend these few moments in God’s word and prayer. This week, we are talking about overcoming pornography, simple steps we can take to live a life that is completely free from pornography, where this thing will have no influence on us, we can live unscathed and untouched by this. The next thing I want to bring our attention to is controlling our thoughts, our thought life. You see, very often, this starts in the thought realm, the idea pops in your mind, maybe you are just sitting, you have nothing to do, you are very tired or whatever that moment is, this thought comes to your mind, tempting us to go and watch porn or something we know is not good for us, it is controlling us and disturbing our emotions. So, you got to stop it at the thought realm, take control of your thought life. Remind yourself of what of Paul said in Philippians chapter 4, verse 8, he said, ‘whatever things are good, whatever things are noble, whatever things are pure, whatever things are lovely, whatever things are praiseworthy, whatever things that are virtuous think on such things.’ So, you immediately tell yourself, no! I’m going to think on things that are healthy, pure and virtuous. The bible tells us in 2 Corinthians chapter 10, verses 3 to 5, it says, ‘we need to take every thought captive to the obedience of Christ.’ So, take control of your thought life. The moment that thought comes, you counter it with the word of God, you say, my mind is holy, I will only think on things that ae holy, I will set no wicked thing before my eyes, I will stay away from all appearance of evil. The moment the thought comes, you respond like this, you stop it in your thought and then, the deed will not follow. Many times, we receive the thought, we ponder on it and then the deed follows. If you stop it at the point of thought, the action will not come, your emotions will not be aroused and you will not do that. So, remember this, stop it at the thought. Let’s pray, Father, we ask that you will help us think on things that are pure, lovely, virtuous, praiseworthy and good and to bring every thought in our mind captive to the obedience of Christ, to keep it submitted to Jesus Christ. Help us to take control of our thoughts and to keep our mind clean and holy, in Jesus’s name, Amen.

Stay Away (Daily Devotional)
May 13 2024
Stay Away (Daily Devotional)
Greetings and thank you for the opportunity to come to you today and spend these few moments in God's word and in prayer. This week, we're talking about overcoming pornography. The next step in this journey is to stay away. In Psalm chapter 101, verse 3, the psalmist said, ‘I will set nothing wicked before my eyes.’ in 1 Thessalonians chapter 5 and verse 22, the Bible says, ‘stay away from all appearance of evil.’ So, this is a deliberate choice we make. God has given us something called the will, sometimes we use the term will power. God has given us a will which means it's the ability for you and me to make a deliberate choice. God has given you a will, He's given me a will, that means I can make a deliberate choice. Now the will may be weakened or may have been weakened because of what we intentionally yielded to but that's where we can start making a different choice and the more you make the opposing choice, the stronger your will becomes in order to do the right thing. So, at least one, you begin with the smallest step that you can take, you choose to stay away from every appearance of evil. Like the psalmist said you choose not to keep any wicked thing before your eyes. So, whether you're walking outside, you see a billboard, some sign or you pick up the newspaper and you see something there or some magazine or sometimes on a phone or a computer, wherever you tend to watch pornography, you stay away, you say, I will not set anything wicked before my eyes, I will stay away from all appearance of evil. You take it out, close it, put the newspaper away, put the magazine away, change what you are watching on your computer or your phone, just take it off, stay away from all appearance of evil. Now, you got to start with small steps, every time you say no, you're strengthening your will, you're becoming stronger in your ability to say no. So, every step you take matters and that's what staying away means, I will set no wicked thing before my eyes. You say that and you begin to practice it, one small step at a time. Let's pray, Father we ask for the strength we ask you to strengthen our will so that we will set no wicked thing before our eye, that we will stay away from all appearance of evil, wherever this evil appears to us that we'll just walk away from it, shut our eyes to it, turn away from it, refuse to give it access into our lives. Strengthen our will to take the steps we need to take, each and every time, in Jesus’s name, Amen.

Confess! Consecrate! (Daily Devotional)

Confess! Consecrate! (Daily Devotional)
Greetings and thank you for this time with you, to be able to bring God's word and spend a few moments in prayer. This week, we are talking about overcoming pornography. One of the first steps as we journey into a place of complete deliverance is to confess and to consecrate. There are three kinds of confession that I want to bring our attention to. First, there is the confession of sin that means we go before God and say God, I confess that I'm involved in this thing that is not pleasing to you and it's addictive to me, it's enslaving me, I confess it, it's sin, I call sin by its name and I say, Lord, I ask you to cleanse me and I ask you to release me. Second, there is a confession of consecration that means we need to say with our mouths that our bodies are dedicated to God. So, as you confess consecration, that your appetites, your sexual appetites, your sexual desires, your thoughts, your minds, your imagination, your body is consecrated to God, you need to say it, then it's going to break off all the things that are holding you in these areas and consecrate ourselves before God. So, there's a confession of consecration. We say who we are dedicated to, we say who is our Lord. Thirdly, there's a confession of our identity in Jesus that means we confess or we declare what God has done for us in Christ. I want to remind us of two scriptures in Romans chapter 6, verses 6, 7 and 14, the Bible says, ‘that the old, sinful man was crucified, so that the power of sin over our lives will be broken and we who are dead are free from sin.’ Verse 14 says, ‘sin will not have any dominion over you.’ So, we need to confess that, that's part of our identity in Christ, that in Christ, we are free from sin and no addictive behavior can control us. So, we begin with this, there's a confession of sin, there's a confession of our consecration to God and there's a confession of our identity in Christ. So, what God has made available to us in Christ and in this context, God has made complete freedom from sin available to you and me as a believer. Pornography does not need to control you, you can live absolutely free, completely free from this addiction. Let's pray together, Father, we thank you that when we confess our sins, the blood of Jesus Christ cleanses us from all sin. Lord, we confess that we consecrate our mind, our emotions, our appetites, our body to you. We declare that you are our God and our whole being, spirit, soul and body is consecrated to you and we also confess that we are free from the control of sin, sin will not have any dominion over us. We are free because Jesus has set us free, we thank you for this, in Jesus’s name, Amen, Thank you for tuning in to living supernaturally, for more resources to strengthen your spiritual strengthen your spiritual walk, please visit apcwo.org.Daily devotions to strengthen your faith each day.

Enslaved? (Daily Devotional)

Enslaved? (Daily Devotional)
Greetings and thank you so much for giving us the opportunity to come to you today and spend this week with you, each day in short devotionals and a time of prayer. This week, we're going to be talking about overcoming pornography. Now, this is an area of challenge for many believers, both men and women who seem to be trapped in this particular area in their lives of pornography. So, I want to assess the problem and then lead us through understanding of how God in His word would help us overcome this. But first of all we need to understand that this habit or this addiction actually enslaves a lot of people and we are obviously addressing believers in these devotionals. Jesus said in John chapter 8, verse 34, ‘whoever commits sin is a slave to sin.’ 2 Peter chapter 2, verse 19, I'm reading from the Contemporary English version it says, ‘people are slaves of whatever controls them.’ In Proverbs chapter 5, verse 22, it says, ‘his own iniquities entrap the wicked man and he's caught in the cods of his sin.’ So, you see sin in many ways and we're talking specifically about pornography actually enslaves and we use the word addiction, it becomes something that controls the person, man or a woman and they keep going back to it. Now, of course, many people they come up with this answer or response saying, well it's not hurting anybody, I'm not doing any harm to anybody. But think about it like this, first of all, you're hurting yourself because a person who is addicted to pornography is a slave to that. He may be apparently free in many ways but actually in his mind, in his emotions, he's enslaved. Secondly, he's another statistic to the market to the industry, that industry would not survive if it were not for the people who were consuming the kind of things that were being put out and if you can take yourself out of it, that's one statistic, one person less who's going to consume that content. it may not make much of a difference but you're making a statement that you will not subscribe to these kinds of things. So, this week we believe that God is going to set us free from being addicted to pornography. Now, I want to make mention of this, that many cases, there are demonic spirits involved, there are unclean spirits that are involved because of this habitual addiction. There are strongholds in the minds of people that are occupied by these unclean spirits and as I pray, as we pray, we're expecting those strongholds to be demolished by the truth of God's word and then by the anointing of the Holy Spirit, for those unclean spirits to be expelled out of our soul, out of our mind, out of those strongholds and that's how deliverance will come and you will experience complete freedom. So, open up your heart, open up your mind to Jesus and expect to be set free. We no longer need to be slaves to this addiction. Let's pray, Father, in Jesus’s name we consecrate our lives, we consecrate our minds, we consecrate our emotions, we consecrate our sexual appetites and in Jesus’ name we declare freedom in these areas. If there be anyone who's addicted to pornography, this week may complete full deliverance and permanent deliverance come into their lives through the ministry of your word and the ministry of your Spirit, in Jesus’s name, Amen.

Powerful Prayer (Daily Devotional)

Powerful Prayer (Daily Devotional)
Greetings and welcome to Living Supernaturally, thank you so much once again for giving us this opportunity to come your way and minister God's word and spend a few moments in prayer. This week, we've been looking at different aspects from the letter of James and today we'll close with powerful prayer. James chapter 5 and verse 16, ‘the effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much.’ The English word ‘fervent’ simply means impassioned, forceful, passionate, heartful, powerful or wholeheartedly. This verse translated in the King James version seems to indicate that a passionate, wholehearted prayer will accomplish much; implying that a half-hearted prayer may not be as effective. Prayer changes things. Maybe you and I have heard this statement before, maybe you've heard ministers preach on this verse that the prayers of a righteous man is powerful and effective. Maybe you've heard testimonies of people who said the power of prayer has affected their lives and change the course of action in their lives and maybe you have heard teachers preach about the importance of prayer. Why would God answer one person's prayer while apparently ignoring the prayer of someone else? How could it be that within a church family a newborn baby was miraculously brought back from near death, when just a few weeks ago probably a toddler passed away with an illness, with the same people praying? There is no human answer for such question but one thing we know for sure is that God hears each one of our prayers when we call on Him and God answers our prayers. God is a listening God, He answers in His own ways according to His own plans. As God revealed to the prophet Isaiah in Isaiah chapter 55 and verse 8, ‘my thoughts are not your thoughts neither are your ways my ways.’ The point James is making is that prayer is important and God answers prayers so we must make it our priority. On Mount Carmel, Elijah made a pronouncement that it would rain and then he prayed that it would rain. He prayed for rain seven times, after each prayer he sent his servant to see if the sky looked like it rained. When it did not, he prayed again, he prayed bent down to the ground with his face between his knees. This could be interpreted as an expression of earnest supplication. We don't have to be super Christians, we might be tempted to think that Elijah was some sort of a super Christian but James says that he was an ordinary man and God answered his prayer. However, sin in the life of one praying can block prayer's effectiveness. We should confess our sins and pray expecting God to answer. James also makes a point that prayer comes from a righteous man, Elijah was a righteous man and the results of prayer was beyond incredible. Someday, when Jesus comes again perhaps, we'll see how God answered our prayers and we may also understand more about God's works through our prayers. Let us pray, Father, we thank you for your word that we learnt today that the prayers of the righteous availeth it much. Lord, we are righteous because of what you have done on the cross for us, that righteousness was imputed upon each one of us and even as we pray, enable us to see be beyond what we see with our natural eyes, enable us to trust you that you are a God who answers our prayers. Help us to pray big and believe that you will do it in each of our lives, we thank you, we give you all the praise, in Jesus’s name we pray, Amen.
