DO YOU THINK GOD IS DONE WITH YOU

DOUBLE DESTINY DAILY DEVOTIONAL

Tuesday 20th October, 2020

Text:
Matthew 2:13-23

Topic:
DO YOU THINK GOD IS DONE WITH YOU

Memory verse: 
“Let perseverance finish its work so that you may be mature and complete, not lacking anything” (James 1:4).

Message:
Just when Joseph and Mary were getting settled in Egypt, God instructed them to pack up and return to Israel. When they got there, they could not go back home because it was not yet safe. However, God directed them to go to Nazareth.

The story may sound simple to today’s readers of the Bible. But in the New Testament time, it was quite an arduous task considering the mode of transportation, the difficult terrain, the distance and all the tensions involved in these movements, Yet, it all ended well under divine watch.

Had there been times you wondered why God chose to deal with you the way He did? However, even you did not understand His dealing, all He did was an expression of His love and goodness. Your journey so far may not be what you had bargained for from the beginning but God is at work for eternity. All things are working for your good. No matter how events have unfolded around you, lift up a grateful heart to the one who has brought you this far. He is not done with you.

CONTROLLING THOUGHTS:
A living dog is better than a dead lion.

PRAYER:
I shall not die, but live, and declare the works of the Lord. Amen.

BIBLE READING FOR THE YEAR:
1Samuel 17-18; 2Peter 2

DO YOU KNOW THE DANGERS OF PRIDE

DOUBLE DESTINY DAILY DEVOTIONAL

Wednesday 14th October, 2020

Text:
2Kings 5:1-12

Topic:
DO YOU KNOW THE DANGERS OF PRIDE

Memory verse:
“Whosoever exalteth himself shall be abased; and he that humbles himself shall be exalted” (Luke 14:11).

Message:
Naaman arrived Israel purposely for the healing of his leprosy. As he got to the house of the Prophet Elisha, who was to pray for his healing and with his entourage on horses and chariots, the prophet did not come out to welcome him. Rather, the prophet sent him information to go to River Jordan and dip himself in water for seven times, in order to be healed of his leprosy.

Naaman could not take this; he felt humiliated and not respected by the prophet. How dare the prophet ask him to go to River Jordan and take a bath? Is he insinuating that he did not take his bath before coming or the one he took in Syrian river was not good enough? Does it mean he did not know the kind of personality who came to see him? Did he know that he was dealing with the Commander of the host of Syrian army? The above were probably questions that filled Naaman’s mind.

Naaman went away in anger until his servants begged him to go back and obey the prophet. When he did, the leprosy left him. If he had remained angry and in his arrogance had refused to do what Elisha asked him to do, he would have remained a leper all his life. What a shame it would have been to such a prestigious man!

Many times we have lost great opportunities because of pride. People have cut short apprenticeship because their master was rude to them. People have even left the church because the pastor scolded them over a wrong attitude. A lady moved out of her elder sister’s house because her sister demanded that she should help take care of her babies. And she is not faring any better today.

Jesus said if a man does not humble himself he may not be exalted. Many great masters today were once servants. The great prophet Elisha once poured water into the hands of Elijah (2Kings 2:11). After he had completed his service in humility and faithfulness, the master showed him the way that catapulted him to greater prophetic height. Elisha eventually got the double portion of Elijah’s anointing. Humility is a virtue that leads to exaltation. Avoid pride; God brings down the proud.

CONTROLLING THOUGHTS:
He that humbles himself shall be exalted.

PRAYER:
God, give me the heart to serve in humility for that is the pathway to honour. Amen.

Ezekiel 45-46; John 19:23-42

ARE YOU STILL HIDING

DOUBLE DESTINY DAILY DEVOTIONAL

Tuesday 13th October, 2020

Text:
Luke 8:16-18

Topic:
ARE YOU STILL HIDING

Memory verse: 
“For there is nothing hidden that will not be disclosed, and nothing concealed that will not be known or brought out into the open” (Luke 8:17).

Message:
Our text is drawn from the eschatology discourse of the Lord. However, it equally captures some of the things happening in our world today as a result of the increasing advance in technology. True to the words of our Lord, technology revolution is opening up the world in tremendous ways. It keeps forcing on us more and more openness in almost everything we do. Daily, we see collaborations happen on astronomical basis- both by choice and by force.

Courtesy of the “smartphone technology”. We hardly can tell these days whose camera is on us. Even in our most vulnerable moments, we don’t know whose video camera is recording us and streaming our lives on the internet for the whole world to see. Just by a click or a push of a button, most of those things we thought to be secret and private, could be spread across the globe (via the internet) by someone whom we may not even know was around us.

Simply put, we’re now compelled to live most aspects of our lives in the OPEN – both consciously and unconsciously. Our boundaries, both as individuals and as institutions (both sacred and secular), are now becoming more and more porous, fluent and open.

Knowing that we’re becoming more revealing, it is now an age of compulsory openness. Some people somewhere might have already scrutinized and shared globally that which we thought was a secret and protected. And if we’re found to be lacking in integrity, if we’re found to be the very opposite of the very things we advocate, that will be terribly pathetic.

Integrity, therefore, has become an indispensable asset we all must possess in this age of compulsory openness! In all we do, we must stick, not only to worthy goals, but to godly values, also. Preserve your integrity in the contemporary world.

CONTROLLING THOUGHTS:
Integrity is an indispensable asset in this open society.

PRAYER:
Lord, I pray for uncommon integrity. Amen.

Song of Solomon 6-8; Ephesians 2

WHAT A GREAT LOVE

DOUBLE DESTINY DAILY DEVOTIONAL

Thursday 08 OCTOBER 2020

Text:
John 15:9-14

TOPIC:
WHAT A GREAT LOVE

Memory Verse:
John 15:13

Message:
In September 2018, the news went viral that Rev. Father Charles Chukwukelue Ebele, the Parish Priest of St. Jude Thaddeus Catholic Church, Inoma in Anambra West Local Government Area of Anambra State had lost his life in a boat accident. But, what really captured the attention of the world to his death was that he had given out his life jacket to save his friend when their boat was about to capsize on the Anambra river.

The incident sufficiently takes our minds to the sacrifice made for mankind’s salvation by Jesus Christ over 2000 year ago. The difference though is that while the Rev. Father’s death saved his friend, the sacrifice of Jesus was for the entire human race from the power of sin and eternal damination in hell. What sacrifice are you prepared to make to share the gospel and save the soul of your friends, relations, neighbours and kinsmen who are still living in sin?


CONTROLLING THOUGHTS:
One of the seven social sins is worship without sacrifice.

PRAYER:
O Lord, give me the grace to do what is in my power to bring souls into Your kingdom following the example of my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.

BIBLE READING FOR THE YEAR:
2 Samuel 6-8;  1 John 1

WHAT IS BETTER THAN LIFE

DOUBLE DESTINY DAILY DEVOTIONAL.

Tuesday 06 October 2020

Text :
Psalm 63:1-7

Topic :
WHAT IS BETTER THAN LIFE

Memory verse:
Psalm 63:3

Message:
Of course, even a little child knows that the most cherished thing in the universe is life. Nothing commands a higher Value of greater attention and care than the physical life we have now. Nothing is more expensive, better maintained and nourished than life. People would give anything to save their life when it is threatened by disease or danger. Some even do the outrageous things just to keep body and soul together!

However, divine wisdom punches a big hole on our mediocre efforts to enthrone physical life as the ultimate. It tells us about something better than this our physical life and it is called God’s loving Kindness.

Loving kindness is taken from the Hebrew word “Hesed” which represents God’s highest level of Mercy, love, Kindness, favour, grace, goodness, forgiveness, and deliverance. God created man for His pleasure; but in His loving kindness, He gave man eternal life (John 3:16). God’s loving kindness is made available to keep and preserve you until you enter life through Jesus Christ. May He command His loving kindness on you today to keep and preserve you to see and enter eternal life through Christ His son. Amen.

CONTROLLING THOUGHTS:
God’s loving kindness is available to you if you put your trust in Him.

PRAYER:
O God, cause me to hear thy loving kindness in the morning; for in thee do i put my trust, Amen.

Ecclesiastes 1-3; Revelation 10

DO YOU KNOW YOUR DESTINY IS IN YOUR HANDS

DOUBLE DESTINY DAILY DEVOTIONAL

Monday 5th October, 2020

Text:
1Chronicles4:9-10; Matthew 11:12

TOPIC:
DO YOU KNOW YOUR DESTINY IS IN YOUR HANDS

MEMORY VERSE:
“Fight the good fight of faith” (1Tim. 6:12)

Message:
Jesus said that since the time of John the Baptist till now, the Kingdom of God has advanced *_(progressed)_* forcefully *( _by force_ )* and only the people who are able to force *_(push)_* their way through enter into it *_(paraphrased)_* (Matt. 11:12). The road to the kingdom of God is full of oppositions and obstacles, only a man who can breakthrough these barriers will make heaven.

Life is full of battles and in Christianity we fight more dangerous wars. We are at war with the flesh, the world, principalities and powers. It is not a battle that is waged with weapons of physical violence. It is a spiritual battle. Our enemies are real and will not bow to them. This demands a fight!

Jabez is a Bible character that understands the nature of spiritual warfare. Though his world was turned upside down, he did not sit down crying and bemoaning his fate. He took his destiny into his hands interceded for himself. Jabez called on the God of Israel. ( *1Chronicles 4:10* ). He did not just mumble prayers; he ‘called’. He shouted; he screamed; he cried out! A man in serious need does not mumble prayers. When you see a Christian praying and falling asleep, know that he has not sensed real danger. When his pains become excruciating or his condition unbearable, he cannot but cry out.

What are you doing in your own case? Only those who seek the Lord earnestly will find Him (Jer. 29:13). Ask, if you are to receive. Seek, if you are to find. Knock, if the door is to be opened to you (Matt. 7:7). Arise, take your destiny into your hands and fight for your liberation. No one can help you better than yourself. So, arise and fight! “The kingdom of God suffereth violence” and only the violent take it, and this they do by force. Take your destiny into your hand in the fervency of prayers.

CONTROLLING THOUGHT:
Prayer sharpens destinies.

PRAYER:
As I take my destiny into my hands today and fight for my liberation, may every opposition or barrier in my way be dismantled. Amen.

BIBLE READING FOR THE YEAR:
Ezekiel 35-36; John 17

ARE YOU HIDING IN THE RIGHT PLACE

DOUBLE DESTINY DAILY DEVOTIONAL

Friday 02 October, 2020

Text:
Psalm 27:1-5

TOPIC:
ARE YOU HIDING IN THE RIGHT PLACE

Memory Verse:
Psalm 27:5

MESSAGE:
Have you ever watched children play hide and seek? They look for the best place to hide in the house or yard and wait quietly for their friend to try and find them. It’s a fun game for kids, but even as adults, we need a good place to hide from time to time. Sometimes, we need a place of refuge, we need a place of safety, and we need a place to rest when we feel overwhelmed by the circumstances of life, a place where the enemy of our soul can never find us.

The good news is that God has the perfect hiding place for you! You don’t have to hide in your job. You don’t have to hide in relationships. You don’t have to hide in food or addictions because God Himself promise to hide you! He freely offers you shelter from the storms of life any time you call upon His name.

Remember, there’s only one place the enemy cannot find you. There’s only one place where opposition cannot steal from you. There’s only one true place of safety and rest for your soul, and that is in the arms of Jesus. Know that He loves you, and He is ready to receive you when you call upon His name!

CONTROLLING THOUGHTS:
Where you hide determines your vulnerability.

PRAYER:
Father, Thank You for hiding me in Your shelter and keeping me safe from the storms of life.

HOW MANY “TRUSTS” HAVE YOU BETRAYED

DOUBLE DESTINY DAILY DEVOTIONAL

Thursday 1st October 2020

Text:
Luke 16:1-8

TOPIC:
HOW MANY “TRUSTS” HAVE YOU BETRAYED

Memory Verse:
Luke 16:8

Message:
In mid-September 2018, all major news outlets went to town with story of a legislator of the Osun State House of Assembly who was caught stark naked on camera bathing in the market in the wee hours of the night. He was said to have been tricked by blackmailers who pretended to be spiritualists to believe that if he did the ritual, his space in public life and power would be secured. Unknown to him, everything was a setup. When he took the bait, they videoed him and used it to allegedly collect over #40 million from him to keep the video from going public.

In lieu of this, let’s take another look at the story told by Jesus in Luke 16 about the fraudulent steward. How devious the children of this age are! But come to think of it all, consider the complex thinking, the planning, the gathering of all the bits and pieces that went into this scheme, the co-ordination, the perfect execution, and you will agree that the children of this generation indeed have something to teach the saints of light about commitment to achieve goals.

How many Christians operate a business or company together? How many cooperate well in a group even inside the church? How many Christians trust the next saint? How many saints will not betray the trust of his/her brother or sister?

CONTROLLING THOUGHTS:
We need to do better than unbelievers.

PRAYER:
Father, help me to rise above the rot of this age, help me to live above the fallen standards of this world in Jesus’ name, Amen.

IS SAUL AMONG THE PROPHETS

DOUBLE DESTINY DAILY DEVOTIONAL

Tuesday 29 September 2020

Text:
1 Samuel 10:1-11; 19:20-24

TOPIC:
IS SAUL AMONG THE PROPHETS

Memory Verse: 
1 Sam. 10:11

MESSAGE:
The surprises  expressed by the people when they heard Saul prophesy seems to suggest that there is more to being a prophet than prophesying. In fact, for repeating the question, “Is  SAUL also among the prophets?” One should be left to maintain the claim that the hood does not really make the monk.

Being a prophet of God requires that one will first of all be a child of God. And then in answer to God’s call to service the person will dedicate his or her life to prayer, walking with God solitude, living a life of a moral rectitude, developing a courageous heart and labouring in His vineyard. Unfortunately, Saul could not really answer that question.

Assuming YOU are being posed with the same question today, what will be your response? Certainly, our generation is in dire need of true prophets. Our nation is the way it is today because genuine prophets are scarce. There are voices that declare without fear or favour the mind of God and provide direction for destiny fulfilment.

Can it be truly said that you are one of God’s prophets? Is anyone doubting your Christianity? It is time to prove them wrong.

CONTROLLING THOUGHTS:
Prove that you are among the prophets.

PRAYER.
Lord, help me prove to my generation that your hand is truly upon my life.

Psalm 46-48; Acts 19:21-41

ARE YOU LIVING TO PLEASE GOD

DOUBLE DESTINY DAILY DEVOTIONAL

Monday 28th September, 2020

Text:
1 Thessalonians 4:1-12

Topic:
ARE YOU LIVING TO PLEASE GOD

Memory verse: 
“We ask you and urge you in the Lord Jesus, that as you received instruction from us about how you must live and please God…..that you do so more and more” (1Thess.4:1)

Message:
Many people live as though the world started with them and will eventually be concluded by their own terms. They think very little about God and His ways and more about self and things thereto.
Every time you look down on others or deny them of their rights and privileges, you are no better than Pharaoh and his taskmasters. The painful reality is that when you hold down a person, you are holding yourself. The fact that we profess Christianity makes it contradictory; for Christ liberates, self-enslaves. Slavery continues to take place in our homes today under the guise of house-helps, apprentices and the likes. In every generation, God is ever looking for a man who will stand in the gap so that others could be assisted. Whenever He finds any, God is pleased in no small measure. For such ones are helping to answer somebody’s prayer. The Bible says, a liberal soul shall be made fat and he that waters shall be watered also. We are the instruments God uses for His work if we make ourselves available. If a person is not forthcoming, God scouts for a replacement.

Samuel replaced Eli’s family.
Saul replaced Samuel’s family.
David replaced Saul’s family.
God concluded that those who honour Him, He will honour and those who despise Him, will be treated as nothing. For, “in His hand is the life of every creature and the breath of all mankind” (John 12:10). When a bird is alive it eats ants but when a bird dies ants eats it. Time and circumstances can change at any period. Try as much as you can never to devalue or hurt anyone in life.
You may be powerful today but remember, time is more powerful than you!
In 1985, Dasuki arrested Buhari when Babangida upturned the government through palace coup. By 2015, Buhari arrested Dasuki, when he came back to power as a civilian President. (just within 30years interval)
Be an imitator of God; don’t destroy. For God is a builder not a destroyer. Build someone today and you will be pleasing God.

CONTROLLING THOUGHTS:
When you help someone, you have become the extension of God’s hand to the person.

PRAYER:
God grant me the grace to assist somebody today in Jesus’ name. Amen.
