Dare to Take Your Place -Kenneth Copeland

A covenant of grace. That’s what you and I have with Almighty God. If you could truly grasp the significance of that, you’d never be the same again.

The Prince of Peace By Billy Graham

In Christ the middle wall of partition is broken down, the Bible says. There is no Jew or Gentile, or black or white or yellow or red. We could be one great brotherhood in Christ.

If you have an insurance policy but you don’t know what it covers, then you won’t know what you can claim if you have an accident.

Scripture teaches that many Christians suffer so that they may fellowship with others who are in affliction. Only those who have known sorrow and suffering can have fellowship with those in affliction.

Problems Prepare You for Eternity – Rick Warren

When you understand this, life begins to make sense. You stop asking, “Lord, why is this happening?” because you know why.

Open Heavens: What is Man? – Pastor E.A Adeboye

Sunday December 15th 2019Memorise: And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping things that creepth upon the earth. Genesis 1:26Read: Psalm 8:1-9 (KJV)        O Lord, our Lord, how excellent is thy name in all the earth! who hast set thy glory above the heavens.

Out of the mouth of babes and sucklings hast thou ordained strength because of thine enemies, that thou mightest still the enemy and the avenger.When I consider thy heavens, the work of thy fingers, the moon and the stars, which thou hast ordained;What is man, that thou art mindful of him? and the son of man, that thou visitest him?For thou hast made him a little lower than the angels, and hast crowned him with glory and honour.Thou madest him to have dominion over the works of thy hands; thou hast put all things under his feet:All sheep and oxen, yea, and the beasts of the field;The fowl of the air, and the fish of the sea, and whatsoever passeth through the paths of the seas.O Lord our Lord, how excellent is thy name in all the earth!

Message:-The topic of today’s devotional is a question that has confounded the minds of many and has persistently been on people’s lips down the ages. 

People are confounded by this question because they have refused to accept the answer that God provides on this in His word. The reason why they reject what God’s word says about it is that they don’t want to be subject to God’s authority as their Creator. They have therefore developed an alternate reality for themselves that says man evolved from apes. This is a lie of the devil. Fabricated to debase the glory of man and keep him oblivious of the power and dominion he stole from him.
The essence of man is revealed in today’s memory verse. This scripture explains that man emanated from God. In other words, man is the image of God. When we read through the first two chapters of the book of Genesis, we see that man is God’s representative on earth and a co-ruler with Him. Man is the visible representation of the Almighty God, who is a spirit. How awesome this is! No wonder the Psalmist was astounded when he caught a revelation of who man is in today’s Bible reading. He observed in Psalm 8:6:

“Thou madest him to have dominion over the works of thy hands; thou hast put all things under his feet:”
The lesson from this scripture is that man must not live below the standard which God set for him to live by. What brings man down to live below God’s standard for him is sin. Man is fearfully and wonderfully created by God to be in charge of all circumstances of life. Beloved, if you are not living in dominion, you are not living out the man in you. I don’t mean what man became after the fall; I mean the man described by God in Genesis 1:26 and 31. The question is, what can man do today to regain his dominion? The scripture is clear about this: man must be regenerated by being born again. There must be a spiritual re-engineering in the fallen man for him to return to God’s original design for his life. This is the reason why Jesus told Nicodemus in John 3:3b

“Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.”
After we are born again, we have an inheritance in Jesus Christ to have our dominion restored to us (Ephesians 1:11-18). Beloved, Jesus Christ takes away the image of the fallen man and brings back the original man in you for dominion, if only you will genuinely accept Him today and live by His principles and ideals. Prayer Point:Father, please remove every trace of the curse of the first Adam from my life today, and restore me to the original image in which You made me.

A Carefree Christmas -Kenneth Copeland

Be careful for nothing; but in every thing by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God.

Philippians 4:6

Can you really have a merry Christmas even when you have a thousand and one pressures bearing down on you? Yes, you can—and you don’t have to leave the country to do it. No matter how intense or how trivial the problems are that you’re facing right now, you can have the most wonderful, most carefree Christmas season you’ve ever had in your life; and you can start having it today.

As a believer, you’re probably familiar with that scripture that says to be anxious for nothing. But, have you ever taken it seriously enough to put it into action? There’s a good chance you haven’t because you haven’t understood just how dangerous those anxieties are. You probably haven’t realized that they’re a deadly part of the devil’s strategy against you.

That’s right. Worry is one of the chief weapons of his warfare. If he can get you to worry about them, he can use the financial pressures and family pressures and scheduling problems that are just a “normal” part of everyday life to weigh you down and drag you into more trouble than you think possible.

Medical science tells us that a high percentage of the people hospitalized in the U.S.A. are there with ailments caused by worry and tension. Yet, a great many believers worry without even thinking about it. They’ll worry about being too short or too skinny. They’ll stew over this and that and not even realize they’ve been sinning.

“Sinning, Brother Copeland?”

Yes! For the born-again, Spirit-filled believer who owns a Bible—worrying is a sin. So, even if the Christmas cards are late and 45 people are coming to your house for Christmas dinner, don’t worry.

Instead, do what the Bible says to do. Pray, making your request known to God…and praise Him for the answer. Then you’ll have peace.

Now, go ahead and have a truly merry Christmas, you carefree thing you!Scripture Reading:

Matthew 6:24-34

Not Too Young – Billy Graham

Let no man despise thy youth; but be thou an example of the believers . . .
—1 Timothy 4:12

Lord Chesterton once said, “I believe in bedside repentance, but I do not want to depend upon it.” During a serious illness a person’s mind does not function normally. Getting right with God is something one should do in the bloom of health. However, as far as the Lord is concerned, “His ear is not heavy that He cannot hear, nor His arm shortened that He cannot save.” He loves us equally, in sickness or in health; while we are living, or while we are dying. In my experience, I have not known of too many people who found Christ on their deathbed. When we come to Christ in our youth, a life is saved. When we come in old age, a soul is salvaged and life eternal is assured; but the opportunity to live a life for Christ has been lost.

Prayer for the day

Lord God, burden my heart to reach out to the young persons starting their adventure in life—and the old persons dreading the end of their journey. Let me tell them the message of Your saving love.
