THE CHOSEN DAILY DEVOTIONAL...THEME: IT’S ALL PRAISE, PRAISE, and PRAISE!

Image
THE CHOSEN DAILY DEVOTIONAL... DATE: SATURDAY 31ST, DECEMBER 2016. TEXT: Psalm 89 THEME: IT’S ALL PRAISE, PRAISE, and PRAISE!
MESSAGE: 
“1 I will praise thee with my whole heart: before the gods will I sing praise unto thee. 2 I will worship toward thy holy temple, and praise thy name for thy lovingkindness and for thy truth: for thou hast magnified thy word above all thy name. 3 In the day when I cried thou answeredst me, and strengthenedst me with strength in my soul. 4 All the kings of the earth shall praise thee, O Lord, when they hear the words of thy mouth.” (Psalm 138:1-4)
What an extraordinary year in which everything happened – the good, bad and ugly. For those that believe in God through Jesus Christ, there is reason to smile and be happy. Those that do not know Him and who only define success by exotic cars, houses and loads of cash will complain and not see enough reason to praise God though He preserved them till this day. As believers, we should be happy. Our confidence i…

THE CHOSEN DAILY DEVOTIONAL...THEME: HIS FAITHFULNESS IS SO GREAT

Image
THE CHOSEN DAILY DEVOTIONAL... DATE: FRIDAY 30TH, DECEMBER 2016. TEXT: Psalm 150, Psalm 36:5, Psalm 37:3 THEME: HIS FAITHFULNESS IS SO GREAT
MESSAGE: 
“22 It is of the LORD's mercies that we are not consumed, because his compassions fail not. 23 They are new every morning: great is thy faithfulness.” (Lamentations 3:22-23)
Thank God that you are among those that He has preserved even till this day. One thing though is very certain: It is by His mercies – your life, children, wife, husband, money, sound health, good job/career, business and what have you. They are given to you by the Lord because His compassions are renewed every day in your life. He performs His faithfulness with amazing consistency. Remember, the same road you have traveled many times this year alone, some other people passed through it and ended up terribly bad. Some ended up in mortuaries, hospitals, diagnostic centres, police stations and even prison yards. While you lived in sound body, many have been managin…

THE CHOSEN DAILY DEVOTIONAL...THEME: NO JUDGMENT OF DEATH AGAINST YOU SHALL STAND

Image
THE CHOSEN DAILY DEVOTIONAL... DATE: THURSDAY 29TH DECEMBER 2016. TEXT: Exodus 23:25-26, Psalm 79:11 THEME: NO JUDGMENT OF DEATH AGAINST YOU SHALL STAND
MESSAGE: 
“8 He will swallow up death in victory; and the Lord God will wipe away tears from off all faces; and the rebuke of his people shall he take away from off all the earth: for the Lord hath spoken it. 9 And it shall be said in that day, Lo, this is our God; we have waited for him, and he will save us: this is the Lord; we have waited for him, we will be glad and rejoice in his salvation.” (Isaiah 25:8-9)
The year is about to run out. Satanic calendars and evil time-tables are about being activated and ready to be implemented against innocent victims. Evil men and women, occult people, witches and wizards, temples, covens, and shrines have all set ultimatum for their different categories of victims. Some people that traveled home for Christmas have been penciled down to die before the year finally runs out or on their way back t…

THE CHOSEN DAILY DEVOTIONAL...THEME: THINGS MUST BE DONE DIFFERENTLY

Image
THE CHOSEN DAILY DEVOTIONAL... DATE: WEDNESDAY 28TH DECEMBER 2016. TEXT: 1 Samuel 1 THEME: THINGS MUST BE DONE DIFFERENTLY
MESSAGE:
“47 And when he heard that it was Jesus of Nazareth, he began to cry out, and say, Jesus, thou Son of David, have mercy on me. 48 And many charged him that he should hold his peace: but he cried the more a great deal, Thou Son of David, have mercy on me.”
(Mark 10:46-51)
Have you prayed and prayed and fasted and yet, nothing seems to be happening in your life? Then, it is time for you to change strategy. Hannah was going to Shiloh every year, yet she could not bear a child until she changed her strategy. When she observed that all her prayer, supplication and fasting had yielded no results; she decided to make a vow. This strategy paid off. Her vow moved the hand of God and she conceived and the following year she carried her baby. What about you? Are you complaining of having developed ulcer as a result of much fasting? Then it is also time to change your …

THE CHOSEN DAILY DEVOTIONAL...THEME:LEARN TO PRAY WITHOUT CEASING

Image
THE CHOSEN DAILY DEVOTIONAL... DATE: TUESDAY 27TH DECEMBER 2016. TEXT: Luke 18:1-5, 1st Thessalonians 5:17 THEME:LEARN TO PRAY WITHOUT CEASING
MESSAGE:
“Pray without ceasing. 18 In every thing give thanks: for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you. 19 Quench not the Spirit.” (1 Thessalonians 5:17-19) It is often very funny to hear people say they have prayed and prayed and got no answers. These are people whose pattern of prayer never tallies with the standard of God. Instead of deep-hearted prayer laced with groaning and intercession, they indulge in selfish prayer that only dwells on what God should give them such as cars, houses, promotions and so on. Sometimes, the reason for asking God to bless them is that their enemies will be ashamed – not that the name of God will be glorified. They pray in ignorance and without faith. Sometimes, they pray for a few minutes in the morning or not all and claim that it is not the duration of prayer that matters. Not praying all …

THE CHOSEN DAILY DEVOTIONAL...THEME: THERE CANNOT BE A BETTER TIME TO SOW

Image
THE CHOSEN DAILY DEVOTIONAL... DATE: MONDAY 26TH DECEMBER 2016. TEXT: Psalm 126:5, Ecclesiastes 11:4 THEME: THERE CANNOT BE A BETTER TIME TO SOW
MESSAGE:
“While the earth remaineth, seedtime and harvest, and cold and heat, and summer and winter, and day and night shall not cease.” (Genesis 8:22) The yuletide period is usually a celebration of the birth of our Lord and Master Jesus Christ. During this period, people give out lots of gifts as a mark of love. Some visit orphanages, give clothing materials and money to widows and the needy in general. So, unarguably, there can be no better time to sow in the house of God than now. Of course, you can be sure of bountiful reward especially when you sow in a church like The Lord’s Chosen where the power of God is evident. So, you must choose to sow a worthy seed offering to appreciate God for keeping you alive all through the year; for providing for you; fighting all your battles and giving you victory over your enemies and making a way for y…

THE CHOSEN DAILY DEVOTIONAL...THEME: THE DOMINION MANDATE HAS BEEN RELEASED

Image
THE CHOSEN DAILY DEVOTIONAL... DATE: SUNDAY 25TH DECEMBER 2016. TEXT: Hosea 4:6, Deuteronomy 28:1-13 THEME: THE DOMINION MANDATE HAS BEEN RELEASED
MESSAGE:
“And God blessed them, and God said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it: and have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over every living thing that moveth upon the earth.”
(Genesis 1:28)
Many people appear ignorant of the fact that God has already pronounced blessing and dominion upon them. Instead of engaging in tasks that will provoke such blessing, they are busy praying, “God bless me, God bless me.” Get it straight: The dominion mandate to become whatever you set out to be has been released right from the beginning of time. Therefore, what you make of this dominion will to a great extent determine what your life will look like. If you understand the above scripture and apply it, it will help rid your heart of any fear of the unknown. The bible says, “And God…

THE CHOSEN DAILY DEVOTIONAL..THEME: BEWARE OF EVIL CIVILZATION

Image
THE CHOSEN DAILY DEVOTIONAL... DATE: SATURDAY 24th December 2016) TEXT: Romans 8:7, James 4:4 THEME: BEWARE OF EVIL CIVILIZATION
MESSAGE: 
“In whom the god of this world hath blinded the minds of them which believe not, lest the light of the glorious gospel of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine unto them.”(2 Corinthians 4:4)
Civilization is a shift from the traditional mode of doing things whereby the world evolved from the Stone Age to the Bronze Age and then the modern age which ushered in the scientific and technological age. Within the context of civilization, many obsolete ideas gave way to newer and better ideas. All these reduced physical labour. Almost everything has gone digital. There appears to be a shift from analogue to digital. Today, there are vehicles, trains, airplanes, bicycles, calculators and computing machines, money economy etc as against earlier modes.
This latest social change experience is producing some may be unintended functions – the evil side of c…

THE CHOSEN DAILY DEVOTIONAL...THEME: YOU MUST GIVE SOMETHING TANGIBLE

Image
THE CHOSEN DAILY DEVOTIONAL... DATE: FRIDAY, DECEMBER 23RD, 2016. TEXT: Luke 6:38, Philippians 5:17 THEME: YOU MUST GIVE SOMETHING TANGIBLE
MESSAGE:
“Thou shalt not sacrifice unto the LORD thy God any bullock, or sheep, wherein is blemish, or any evilfavouredness: for that is an abomination unto the LORD thy God.” (Deuteronomy 17:1) Giving worthy sacrifices usually attract God’s blessings, while giving unworthy ones provokes Him to anger. Jesus Christ is God’s most prized possession and God gave Him for us as a sacrifice. 
As a matter of reciprocity, we are expected to give back to God something that has quality. Giving God such sacrifice often has a price. Giving something worthy to the Lord must cost the giver something tangible. The truth is that nobody can give above God. Unfortunately today, many people do not see any reason to give. And when they give, they do not give enough and they give grudgingly. They can offer lame and blind goats – with blemish; something that is afflicted. N…

THE CHOSEN DAILY DEVOTIONAL...THEME: YOUR OPPRESSORS SHALL RECEIVE DOUBLE OPPRESSION

Image
THE CHOSEN DAILY DEVOTIONAL... DATE: THURSDAY DECEMBER 22ND, 2016. TEXT: Exodus 3:7, Psalm 12:5, Psalm 72:14 THEME: YOUR OPPRESSORS SHALL RECEIVE DOUBLE OPPRESSION
MESSAGE: 
“And I will feed them that oppress thee with their own flesh; and they shall be drunken with their own blood, as with sweet wine: and all flesh shall know that I the LORD am thy Saviour and thy Redeemer, the mighty One of Jacob.” (Isaiah 44:26) To oppress someone is to subjugate that person; never allow him to rise at all. Politically, a people can be oppressed through the legislation of harsh laws which will hinder their growth socially, economically and otherwise. In the same way, many people can be oppressed through judgments, condemnations, attacks and other forms of manipulations, which aim at truncating that person’s destiny. Such oppression can manifest in the form of spirit husband/wife attacks, ancestral demons and idols, witchcraft attacks and so on. Sometimes, these attacks can be so overwhelming that they c…

THE CHOSEN DAILY DEVOTIONAL…THEME: LEARN TO FORGIVE

Image
THE CHOSEN DAILY DEVOTIONAL… DATE: WEDNESDAY DECEMBER 21ST, 2016. TEXT: Psalm 18:25, Psalm 37:26, Psalm 103:8 THEME: LEARN TO FORGIVE
MESSAGE
“And forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors.” (Matthew 6:12)
There are many instances where people have sought for deliverance without success and they kept wondering why they could not be delivered. Sometimes, they can even lay the blame at the feet of the pastor. “This or that pastor is not strong,” they claim. The truth is that deliverance does not lie entirely on the door of the pastor. The person seeking for deliverance has a role to play: to forgive others. God works with principles and one of His principles is that you must forgive others if you want Him to forgive you. You must show mercy to others if you desire God’s mercy. Put differently, one of the major qualifications for God’s divine intervention in difficult situations affecting His people is that they must have forgiving hearts and by extension show mercy unto others. Jesus …

THE CHOSEN DAILY DEVOTIONAL...THEME: FILTHY GARMENT CAN IMPEDE PROGRESSION

Image
THE CHOSEN DAILY DEVOTIONAL... DATE: TUESDAY DECEMBER 20TH, 2016. TEXT: Revelation 7:9-14, Zechariah 3:4 THEME: FILTHY GARMENT CAN IMPEDE PROGRESSION
MESSAGE
“3 Now Joshua was clothed with filthy garments, and stood before the angel. 4 And he answered and spake unto those that stood before him, saying, Take away the filthy garments from him. And unto him he said, Behold, I have caused thine iniquity to pass from thee, and I will clothe thee with change of raiment. 5 And I said, Let them set a fair mitre upon his head. So they set a fair mitre upon his head, and clothed him with garments. And the angel of the Lord stood by.” (Zechariah 3:3-5)
Filthy garment is a spiritual language which represents impurity. Therefore, whoever is described as having a filthy garment is tainted with sin. That was the argument which the devil raised as he stood to resist the angel who was standing by him. The filthy garment on the body of Joshua was an impediment against him making heaven and that was what m…

THE CHOSEN DAILY DEVOTIONAL...THEME: BEWARE OF EXCESSIVE LOVE OF MONEY

Image
THE CHOSEN DAILY DEVOTIONAL... DATE: MONDAY DECEMBER 19TH, 2016. TEXT: 1st Timothy 6:6, Proverbs 28:11 THEME: BEWARE OF EXCESSIVE LOVE OF MONEY
MESSAGE: 
“For the love of money is the root of all evil…..” (1 Timothy 6:10-11) During this period of the year, many people want to travel home with exotic cars, elegant wardrobe, lots of cash, bags of rice, tin tomatoes, groundnut oil, turkey and other things in order to prove to those in the rural areas that they have arrived. This desire to have all these things increases their aggressiveness to make it by all means. In this wise, they can do anything to have the cash to finance these desires. They can extort, defraud, cheat, dupe, deceive and even coerce people into parting with their money and goods just to have their way. This has landed many of such people in hot soup.
Excessive love of money appears to be the bane of our nation. Today, children in primary school already have an idea what a million naira can buy. Many youths have dropped ou…

THE CHOSEN DAILY DEVOTIONAL...THEME: BEWARE OF GREEK GIFTS

Image
THE CHOSEN DAILY DEVOTIONAL... DATE: SUNDAY DECEMBER 18TH, 2016. TEXT: Proverbs 18:16, Psalm 68:18 THEME: BEWARE OF GREEK GIFTS
MESSAGE: 
“16 And I have heard of thee, that thou canst make interpretations, and dissolve doubts: now if thou canst read the writing, and make known to me the interpretation thereof, thou shalt be clothed with scarlet, and have a chain of gold about thy neck, and shalt be the third ruler in the kingdom. 17 Then Daniel answered and said before the king, Let thy gifts be to thyself, and give thy rewards to another; yet I will read the writing unto the king, and make known to him the interpretation.” (Daniel 5:16-17)
The gift which God gives to all men is designed to pave way for the beneficiary. But the gift which a man receives from a fellow man is not always designed to pave way for him. Sometimes, such gifts are designed to get the receiver to compromise his/her position. Sometimes, such gifts actually ruin those who receive them. That is why you must scrutinize…

THE CHOSEN DAILY DEVOTIONAL...THEME: THROW DOWN YOUR FATHER’S ALTAR

Image
THE CHOSEN DAILY DEVOTIONAL... DATE: SATURDAY DECEMBER 17TH, 2016. TEXT: Exodus 34:13, Judges 6:25-26 THEME: THROW DOWN YOUR FATHER’S ALTAR MESSAGE:
“And Gideon said unto him, Oh my Lord, if the LORD be with us, why then is all this befallen us? and where be all his miracles which our fathers told us of, saying, Did not the LORD bring us up from Egypt? but now the LORD hath forsaken us, and delivered us into the hands of the Midianites.” (Judges 6:13) Many people are victims of their father’s altars. Those before Gideon whom God had rescued from their bondage in Egypt forsook Him and served other gods prompting God to hand them over to their enemies. They were seriously tormented and they cried out unto God. Gideon had wandered why things were they way he saw them and the angel told him to throw down his fathers’ altars. They were not entitled to God’s blessing, prosperity and protection while those altars were still standing. So, the angel instructed him that the altars must go down and i…
