THE CHOSEN DAILY DEVOTIONAL
DATE: WEDNESDAY, 23RD DECEMBER, 2015.
THEME: HAVE NO FEAR, GO FORWARD.
TEXT: Deuteronomy 9:1-3
1 Hear, O Israel: Thou art to pass over Jordan this day, to go in to possess nations greater and mightier than thyself, cities great and fenced up to heaven.
2 A people great and tall, the children of the Anakims, whom thou knowest, and of whom thou hast heard say, Who can stand before the children of Anak!
3 Understand therefore this day, that the LORD thy God is he which goeth over before thee; as a consuming fire he shall destroy them, and he shall bring them down before thy face: so shalt thou drive them out, and destroy them quickly, as the LORD hath said unto thee.
MEMORY VERSE: And Moses said unto the people, Fear ye not, stand still, and see the salvation of the LORD, which he will shew to you to day: for the Egyptians whom ye have seen to day, ye shall see them again no more for ever. Exodus 14:13.
There is no hurdle that is insurmountable to the children of God. If fear is overcome in any venture or even in the war, 50% of the battle is won. In that case it is important to overcome fear at all time. In the text above the Israelites seem to have been satisfied staying on one side of the Jordan, leaving the other part. They have stayed long on that one spot.
God had to remind them that the entire promised land of Canaan must be fully occupied. He then urged them to move forward. When He started ordering them to move forward and cross to the other side of the River Jordan, He emphasized that He, God, was with them. The Bible says in Romans 81 "What shall we then say to this these things? If God be for us, who can be against us?" God is with this ministry The Lord's Chosen Charismatic Revival Movement. As long as you are a member of this ministry, God is with you. Therefore fear not and go ahead and carry out any project of your choice that is in accordance with the will of God.
Is there any business venture you want to go into but afraid of the financial involvement, go ahead with the little you have, as you start it humbly, God will bless it to grow. Many people nurse the opinion of going into full time ministry in answer to the call of God but are afraid of their survival. God will never allow His people especially His servant who labours for Him to beg bread.
Again, do not fear your enemy, trust in God and go ahead with your venture, God will see you through.
Pray that fear will no longer stop longer stop you from carrying out your choice projects.
Pray that God will go before you in everything you want to do.
AMEND YOUR WAYS: If you are not born again you must do something as a matter of urgency. He that commits sin is of the devil (1 John 3:8). If you are into lying, cheating, bitterness, keeping malice, pride, manifesting anger, quarreling, unforgiveness, hatred, envy, contention, strife, gossiping, taking or giving bribe, selfishness, kidnapping. If you are into masturbation, fornication, adultery, prostitution, abortion, lesbianism, homosexuality, you need to repent. Are you into idolatry, do you make or use charms, rituals, bow down to images, Are you into occultism? Do you smoke cigarette, cocaine, heroine? Are you lusting, covetous, alcohol drinking, divorcee or into worldliness?, you must stop bleaching your body, or painting your lips, eyes, fixing attachments, weave-on, earrings (Gen 35:2-4) Are you one of those that put on nude dresses, short skirts, transparent dresses to seduce (A seducer is not a Christian) do you wear trouser as a woman? Repent and give your life to Jesus Christ.
LET'S PRAY: If you want to give your life to JESUS pray this short prayer with me: Almighty God, I come unto you in the name of Jesus. Father I confess that I am a sinner. All my sins I confess to you. I am very sorry for all my sins. Lord I promise you that from today I will never continue in them anymore. I believe that Jesus Christ died and rose again on the third day for my justification. Almighty God, use the blood of Jesus to wash my sins away. Lord Jesus, come into my heart, be my Lord and Personal Savior. I surrender my life to you. Cancel my name from the book of death and give me grace to make Heaven. AMEN!
