    REMEMBER HIS MERCIES

    Nehemiah 9:1-31

    On this faithful day, the children of Israel assembled together to fast, pray and worship the Lord their God. They began to mention the things God did for them; they described God as gracious and merciful (verse 31).

    Have you ever set a day aside to remember and appreciate the goodness of God? or you remember and appreciate the things God did not do for you? Have you ever set a day and worshiped him for all His mercies towards you? if no, make haste and do that. God does not require anything from you but your thanksgiving. “If I were hungry, I would not tell thee: for the world is mine, and the fullness thereof. Will I eat the flesh of bulls, or drink the blood of goats? Offer unto God thanksgiving: and pay thy vows unto the most high:” (Psalm 50:12-14)

    As you start today to count your blessings and name them one by one, it will surprise you what the Lord has done.

    MEDITATION:

    Bless the Lord O my soul and forget not all his benefits. (Psalm 103:2)

    PRAYER POINTS:

    1.    Pray and thank God for his mercies in your life.

         Pray that you will always remember to appreciate His mercies towards you.

    POWER IN CHRIST

    John 1:12

    The word – “Power” can be said of one having the ability to cause or prevent an action; it can also be said as one having to make things happen or the discretion to act or not to act. Power can be political, religious or social. Today, our focus is on the power that God gives to anyone who receives Jesus Christ as their Lord and  personal Saviour – “But as many as received him, to them gave He power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on His name.” (John 1:12).

    This is the power that saves, heals, delivers and helps us overcome sin. It is this power that makes a difference between the believer and unbeliever. You can receive this power today. But, the only way you can have it is by accepting Jesus Christ as your Lord and personal Saviour.

    When the Lord Jesus comes into your heart, He will change your heart and make you a new person (creature), your old life, old habits and old desires will be changed, you will stop living such life and start living for Christ alone.

    MEDITATION:

    But these are written, that ye might believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God; and that believing ye might have life through his name. (John 20:31)

    PRAYER POINTS:

    1. Pray and thank God for today and for the word.
    2. Pray that God’s power will be seen in your life.

    DESPISING THE LORD

    Numbers 11:1-6

    When the Israelites left Egypt, they came out with a mixed crowed, that is, other people who did not know the Lord. These people looked down on God, did not keep His commandments and complained about everything. Their grumbling made God very angry and He sent fire to burn them. But Moses prayed to God and He had mercy on them and stopped the fire.

    Do you know why the mixed crowd complained? They complained because they did not like the manna God was providing for them, they wanted to eat cucumber, garlic, onions and other food they ate while in Egypt. They told Moses “but now our whole being is dried up; there is nothing at all except this manna before our eyes” (Numbers 11:6).

    Sadly, they did not remember that God was taking them to the Promised land and because of food, they wanted to go back to Egypt, a place where they were slaves. They let God down. Sometimes, we are not grateful for the good things God has done for us and for our families. Maybe, because we ask God for other things like a car for our parents and it has not come so we despise God and we begin to think that God has not done anything for us. We murmur against the Lord and we forget He has given us life, salvation and provision. God’s children should not behave like this.

    MEDITATION:

    Be not wise in thine own eyes: fear the Lord and depart from evil.(Proverbs 3:7)

    PRAYER POINTS:

    1. Look around you, mention the things God has done for you and thank Him for it.
    2. Pray that the situation in your life will not make you despise God.

    DOING IT ALONE

    John 1:43-51

    Our Lord Jesus Christ, in order to properly carry out divine assignment, chose some disciples to assist him. If Jesus Himself had helpers, you cannot do it alone in life. Even in the heavenly race you need the assistance of the Lord, the Holy Spirit and fellow brethren to stand firm and work perfectly.

    While Jesus was raising disciples, they were at the same time bringing their close friends and brothers to join them. You must preach to your friends to accept Jesus Christ as their Lord and Saviour. If you are not yet born again, then hurry and accept Him today into your life.

    Dear friends, how are you doing God’s work? Are you struggling with an assignment He has given you? Are you struggling with personal assignment, school and other responsibilities in your life? You need the help of God and other people to enable you succeed in your given responsibilities.

    MEDITATION:

    He will keep the feet of His saints, and the wicked shall be silent in darkness; for by strength shall no man prevail (1 Samuel 2:9).

    PRAYER POINTS:

    1. Thank the Lord for making you His own and all those that have also answered His call.
    2. Ask the Lord to give you the grace to remain faithful to His call over your life.

    GOD’S WISDOM

    Daniel 2:14-16

    Everything in life demands wisdom and if you want to have wisdom you must first fear God; because the fear of God is the beginning of wisdom (Psalm 111:10). You cannot get wisdom from attending school; rather you only acquire knowledge from school.

    The king of Babylon had a dream and none of the wise men of Babylon could interpret it. Daniel had wisdom from God. With this wisdom, he prevented the killing of all the wise men, he invited his friends to join him pray for an answer from God and he was able to interpret the king’s dream. “Blessed be the name of God forever and ever; for wisdom and might are His”. (Daniel 2:20). Ask God today for wisdom.

    MEDITATION:

    Wisdom is the principal thing; therefore get wisdom: and with all thy getting get understanding. (Proverbs 4:7)

    PRAYER POINTS:    

    1. Pray that God’s wisdom should envelop you in all that you do.
    2. Ask for God’s mercy in any way that you have acted outside God’s wisdom and guidance.

    CLEANING THE TEMPLE

    John 2:15-22

    The Church of God which is God’s Temple is meant to be clean and holy at all times, because it is a place where believers go to worship and have an encounter with God., but from our lesson we could see that the Jews had turned it into a trade center where they bought and sold things.

    The Lord Jesus Christ did not take this unholy behavior lightly. He became angry in His Spirit so much so that He literally flogged the people out of the temple, overthrew their tables and drove away their animals out of the Temple.

    Do you also know that your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost? If Jesus was not pleased with the attitude of the people towards the Temple, how much more will He be displeased if He finds you- His living Temple, misusing His temple (Your body) (1 Corinthians 3:16-17;6:19).

    As Christians, we ought to be mindful of what we do with our body, what we wear and what we watch and our actions. Your body is no longer yours, you have being bought with a prize and on the day of accountability, God will ask you what you have done with His Temple. May God help you to make a change today.

    MEDITATION:

    For ye are bought with a price: therefore glorify God in your body, and in your spirit, which are God’s. (1 Corinthians 6:20)

    PRAYER POINTS:

    1. Ask God to help you to always keep your body (His temple) clean at all times.
    2. Ask God to help you also keep His church clean.

    YOU MUST BE BORN AGAIN

    John 3:1-8

    Nicodemus, a Pharisee and a ruler of the Jews came to Jesus Christ by night to commend the works (miracles) of Jesus. The Lord Jesus Christ answered him: “Verily, Verily, I say unto thee, except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God” (John 3:3). Nicodemus became confused when he heard what Jesus told him. He asked “Born again? Do you mean I will go back into my mother’s womb and be born as a baby again? Jesus made him understand that he was not talking about a physical rebirth but a spiritual one. He used the movement of the wind to explain further to his understanding.

    Dearly beloved, do you know that except you are changed and transformed by the blood of Jesus Christ, you cannot go to heaven? When God touches you, your old nature will die, along its activities such as: stealing, lying, envy, immorality, etc. Why not repent today and totally surrender your life to Christ and forsake the world and the things of this world. Jesus said: “Love not the world, neither the things that are in the world. If any man love the world, the love of the father is not in him” (1 John 2:15)

    MEDITATION:

    For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh, and the lust of the eyes, and the pride of this life, is not of the father, but is of the world. (1 John 2:16)

    PRAYER POINTS:

    1. Tell the Lord to help you to be born again.
    2. Pray that nothing will keep you from being saved.
