TOPIC*: *DON’T FINISH WHAT GOD* *HAS NOT FINISHED* !*Memory verse*: “BEING CONFIDENT OF THIS VERY THING, THAT HE WHICH HATH BEGUN A GOOD WORK IN YOU WILL PERFORM IT UNTIL THE DAY OF JESUS CHRIST” (PHILI 1:6)
God has been good, that you are alive, is a sign that satan has lost the vital battle for your destiny. No matter what has happened or is happening, God wants you to know that winners win because they always finish whatever they start. ( Heb 12 : 2) describes him as the author and the FINISHER of your faith. A job only halfway completed rarely paves the way to the winners circle .Winners start, winners work, winners FINISH. Yes! resist the many lies of the devil and Don’t stop! Don’t finish what God has not finished!
PRAYER:Thank God for today’s word, satan is a liar, ! i am alive shows that God has not finished with me . I resist discouragement, depression and fear in Jesus name i pray….Amen🙏

*TOPIC*:THE TRUE CHRISTIANS (BELIEVER’S)*Memory verse*: “BE CONCERNED ABOVE EVERYTHING ELSE WITH THE KINGDOM OF GOD AND WITH WHAT HE REQUIRES OF YOU, AND HE WILL PROVIDE YOU WITH ALL THESE OTHER THINGS” (MAT.6:33 GN).
As a child of God your topmost priority is to place God first above everything you do. For instance, when you receive money/salary, take out God’s portion (tithe) first. When you are always conscious of putting God first, God will bless you. (Matt19:29) KJV says, “And every one that hath forsaken houses, or brethren, or sisters, or father, or mother, or wife, or children, or lands, for my name’s sake, shall receive an hundredfold, and shall inherit everlasting life.” To have God’s first mentality, you have to be addicted to God and have in mind that without Jesus Christ our Lord you cannot do anything.(2 Chro27:6 (GN) says, “Jotham grew powerful because he faithfully obeyed the Lord his God. Let nothing move you from God, stick to him, be humble and obedience to his commands. Let God be the first thing in your life and you will be successful in everything. Through holiness we shall see the Lord so prepare the highway in holiness.AMEN!
*PRAYER:* 🙏🏽Lord, have your Way in me,be the centre of my life in Jesus’ name, Amen.

*Memory verse*: Then the LORD God formed the man from the dust of the ground. He breathed the breath of life into the man’s nostrils, and the man became a living person. (NLT) -Genesis 2:7➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖ We identify with people and things in our lives, such as friends, music, jobs, or grades in school. Sometimes we associate our identity with these things, but we are more than the categories by which we define ourselves. These things don’t entirely reflect or define us. Our identity is found in our Creation as a Son or Daughter of the Most High.
*PRAYER:* Heavenly Father I thank You, For making my identity as Your likeness.
Tuesday 24th March.
Memory verse*:Likewise reckon ye also yourselves to be dead indeed unto sin, but alive unto God through Jesus Christ our Lord. *Roman’s 6:11(KJV)* ➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖Through Jesus Christ alone are we made “alive unto God.” If we are dead to sin, then it will lose its power over us. If we are alive to God, we will respond in love and obedience to his Word and his Spirit. ➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖ *PRAYER:* *Prayers*. Help us to live this day as dead indeed to sin and alive indeed to You, O Lord. You are the source of our life and the focus of our life. All of the spiritual exercises that You animate in us are directed back to You as the object of our affection and praise. With renewed minds and wills, let us serve You out of pure heart faithfully. *In Jesus mighty name I pray Amen.🙏🏽
*Memory verse*: _”YOU LOVE WHAT IS RIGHT AND HATE WHAT IS EVIL. THAT IS WHY GOD, YOUR GOD, HAS CHOSEN YOU AND HAS POURED OUT MORE HAPPINESS ON YOU THAN ON ANY OTHER KING” (PSALM 45:7 GN)_.
Sometimes it might look like you have come to the end of your life, nothing seems to be working and your expectations are not met. A prophecy was released upon Abraham and Sarah’s lives that they would give birth to a covenant child, but years passed without any sign. They might have said to themselves, “Will this promise ever come to pass?’ No wonder Abraham and Sarah laughed at different times when God reminded them of the promise (Gen. 17:17, 18:12 GN).No matter the pain, disappointment, and shame you have been through when God anoints you with the oil of gladness, everything changes. Your joy makes you forget every pain you have experienced. After Isaac was finally born, Sarah said, _”God has brought me laughter, and everyone who hears about this will laugh with me.” (GEN. 21:6 GN)_.Hear what God says to you in Isaiah 61:3 _”To give to those who mourn in Zion Joy and gladness instead of grief, A song of praise instead of sorrow. They will be like trees that the Lord himself has planted. They will all do what is right, and God will be praised for what he has done_. Stand and claim this verse today. Enough of the sleepless nights and shame, rise up and pray like Hannah in your room and cry out to God to anoint you with the oil of gladness. Avail yourself for the oil of the Lord; the power of God is all that we need to live holy and pure for the Lord’s second coming. Let’s repent and wait to receive the Lord’s power. *PRAYER:* 🙏🏽Lord, please arise and let the enemy be scattered. Anoint me with the oil of gladness in Jesus’ name. AMEN!
“MEMORY VERSE”: “If my people ,which are called by my name, shall, humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear them from heaven,and will forgive their sin, and will heal their lands”. 2 Chronicles 7:14 KJV)
It is time to revive on our Christianity journey and be focused on the LORD. Believers should be strong in the LORD, for this is not the time to listen to human, but only GOD because it will be a time people will be stoned and assaulted critically, but when all begins to be strong in the LORD and even be in the act of worship and praise to the LORD.(Psalm 34:15-22, Psalm 33:16-22).
PRAYER: Our heavenly Father, Omnipotent, Omniscient and Omnipresent God, we thank You for Your mercies and strength to stand both spiritually and physically to fight a good fight till the end in JESUS mighty name. AMEN
Memory verse: “So you too, must keep watch! For you don’t know what day your Lord is coming.” (Matthew 24:42 NLT)
If you knew Christ was returning within a year, how would that change your perspective in life? When we realize His return will bring pain to those who don’t recognize Him, sharing our faith in Christ becomes more urgent. We want our friends and families to experience the joyful news that God heals our hurts and loves us with purity. No one knows the day or the hour of Christ’s return, but no one also knows the minute of their last heartbeat. Take a moment tonight to pray for an opportune time to share your hope with a loved one who is on your heart.
PRAYER: Our Heavenly Father, we thank you. We need Your Spirit that can help us to bear the fruit of soberness to watch and keep stronger in our Faith until Your second coming in Jesus’ Name I Pray. Amen
MEMORY VERSE: “BUT WHO WILL BE ABLE TO ENDURE THE DAY WHEN HE COMES? WHO WILL BE ABLE TO SURVIVE WHEN HE APPEARS? HE WILL BE LIKE STRONG SOAP, LIKE A FIRE THAT REFINES METAL” (MALACHI 3:2 GN).
John the Baptist went about preaching in the wilderness of Judea saying, “Repent of your sins and turn to God, for the kingdom of God is near.” This message is being echoed till now and it will continue until Jesus appears in his glory to take His prepared Bride—the wise Church (Christians). If John the Baptist started preaching about the second coming of Christ over two thousand years ago, then it means this present generation is much closer to that day, and it could be today, tomorrow or anytime ahead of us, so let’s repent and be the image of Christ. We must, therefore, be ready while we go about our daily activities. “For you yourselves know very well that the Day of the Lord will come as a thief comes at night” (1Thess 5:2-3 GN). That day will come as suddenly as the pains that come upon a woman in labour, and many cannot escape. Jesus is coming for those whose garments are clean; those who are Righteous and have set themselves apart for Him.
Ecclesiastes 9:8 says, _”Let thy garments be always white; and let thy head lack no ointment.”_ Preparation for a wedding can take about weeks, months, or a year of vigorous planning to ensure that everything is ready by the set date. If a lot of time, money and energy is put into something that will only last here on earth, shouldn’t we go the extra mile to prepare for the most important day that will last forever? Beloved, the day of the Lord is at hand, a thousand years is like a day in His sight. Clothe yourself with Righteousness and live ready for the return of the Bridegroom. It’s time to repent and prepare in holiness for the Messiah is coming.
PRAYER: 🙏🏽Father, let my garment always be white while waiting for your coming in Jesus’ name. Amen
Memory verse: “God is the Lord, which hath shewed us light: bind the sacrifice with cords, even unto the horns of the altar” (Psalm 118:27 KJV)
God is light and in Him there is no darkness; He shines in and around us. 1John1:5 says, “This then is the message which we have heard of him, and declare unto you, that God is light, and in Him is no darkness at all”. Light can represent revelation, presence or glory depending on the context it is used. When a person has a revelation about something, it affects his thought pattern. Light brings change. When we encounter God’s light (Word), any area of our lives that is experiencing darkness begins to shine. Just as God said “Let there be light: and there was light” (Genesis 1:3), you are empowered to change any situation with your words. Let the light of God shine in every aspect of your life and you will never remain in darkness. God also expects us to walk in this light so that people around us can see and connect with it.
Isaiah 60:1 says, Arise, Jerusalem, and shine like the sun; the glory of the Lord is shining on you. Light attracts. When Esther rose and shined the king was attracted to her. You are a peculiar people, a chosen generation, a royal priesthood so arise and shine for your light to attract others to Christ. May the light of God position you for holiness and righteousness unto the Lord. We must always abide in the presence of God for our lights to shine brighter each moment of our lives. The presence of God is the source of light. Holiness and Righteousness also produces light and bring us the joy of the Lord. Psalm 97:11 says “Light shines on the righteous and joy on the upright in heart”. Stay connected to God and let your light shine before men.
PRAYER: Lord Jesus, please let Your light shine on me to attract others unto You in Your mighty name. Amen.
