BUILDERS DEVOTIONAL - MAKE ROOM FOR THE GLORY

BUILDERS DEVOTIONAL DATE: WEDNESDAY, SEPTEMBER 22,2021 TOPIC:  MAKE ROOM FOR THE GLORY TEXT:Gen 12:1-2 (NIV) _The Lord had said to Abram, "Leave your country, your people and your father's household and go to the land I will show you._ LESSON Consecration is a means to make room for the glory.We shall learn about this today. Consecration is speration plus dedication.You are separated from the world and dedicated to the kingdom.Two legs on which your consecration stands.This is the precursor for glory. God does not just need men that will hero-worship him  rather those that can represent Him. In fulfilling this same vision, consecration is a necessary step. At creation, man yearned only for God, but after the fall, men craved for things.The restoration of the soul to the condition of total yearning for the will of God is consecration.  Desire is the gate of the soul. When a soul absolutely desires God and his will, the manifest presence of Jehovah becomes real to such fellow. T

BUILDERS DEVOTIONAL - GLORY TO THE NATIONS

BUILDERS DEVOTIONAL DATE: TUESDAY, SEPTEMBER 21,2021 TOPIC: GLORY TO THE NATIONS TEXT:Josh 14:13 (NIV)  _Then Joshua blessed Caleb son of Jephunneh and gave him Hebron as his inheritance_ LESSON The mother of the church is the nation of Israel.The promise of God to the Israelites was to make them a light to all the nations.The work of the levite was to make them align with laws of God and the leaders  to lead them into their portion. An average Israelite was so ready for an inheritance among the heathens.This is to preserve the earth because the law of the Lord is the source of life that preserves the earth from decadence. We are the light of the world ( Mat 5:13,14), where no light is there will be darkness.This is the reason why we must spread every where with the light of love. Genuine love is the marker of the kingdom. Whoever claims to know God and does not love does not know God. See how sweet the world will be with brotherly love everywhere? Sin will be destroyed by the power of

BUILDERS DEVOTIONAL - SECRETS OF CHRISTIAN GROWTH

BUILDERS DEVOTIONAL DATE: MONDAY, SEPTEMBER 20,2021 TOPIC: SECRETS OF CHRISTIAN GROWTH TEXT: Heb 12:2(ERV)_We must always think about Jesus, like people who go on looking at him always. He is the example of someone who believes God completely. He leads us and he will cause us to believe completely. Jesus died on a cross that people had made from wood. He had a lot of pain and people were very ashamed of him. But he refused to think about that before he died. He knew that God had chosen the way for him. He knew that God had chosen to make him very, very happy later. And now he sits in the most important place next to where God sits as king_ LESSONS What you fellowship with determines what you become. Eve fellowshipped or entertained a thought contrary to God’s will and fell into carnality. This drew her and Adam from the will of God. In the above text, Jesus fellowshipped with God’s will for him always. He meditated on it, saw the benefit of working in it, always prayed about it etc. He

BUILDERS DEVOTIONAL - THE COMMONWEALTH

 BUILDERS DEVOTIONAL DATE: SUNDAY, SEPTEMBER 19,2021 TOPIC: THE COMMONWEALTH TEXT: Eph 2:12(NJKV) _that at that time you were without Christ, being aliens from the commonwealth of Israel and strangers from the covenants of promise, having no hope and without God in the world._  LESSON A believer need not envy the blessing someone else enjoys because we all have equal access to the Father's treasure.  Although we might have different levels of knowledge which is due to growth.  As read in Matthew 6:33 that meditation in Kingdom realities makes it real in our understanding.  The term  _commonwealth_ has its origin traced to the welfare of the public. It has a variety of uses today but the sense of a common benefit still appears in all. There is a commonwealth of Israel which the Jews have explored till date but now the Church has legally been grafted to a greater promise. The deposit of this wealth is in promises and covenants. This is the kingdom welfare provision as stated in the c

BUILDERS DEVOTIONAL - REST IS IN HIS PRESENCE

BUILDERS DEVOTIONAL DATE: SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 18,2021 TOPIC: REST IS IN HIS PRESENCE TEXT: Ex 33:14(NIV) _The Lord replied, "My Presence will go with you, and I will give you rest._ LESSON The mark that distinguishes believers as the chosen is the manifest presence. True rest lies in him. This is true in reality by this manifest presence.  The possibilities that find expression through his manifest presence are indeed enormous. His goodness is his presence. Ex 33:19  _And the Lord said, "I will cause all my goodness to pass in front of you, and I will proclaim my name, the Lord, in your presence. I will have mercy on whom I will have mercy, and I will have compassion on whom I will have compassion._ We were not only redeemed by the blood but we have access by his blood to his presence which is the holy of holies (Heb 10:20) Heb 10:20-22 _By a new and living way opened for us through the curtain, that is, his body, 21 and since we have a great priest over the house of God, 22

BUILDERS DEVOTIONAL - HUNGER FOR GOD’S MANIFEST PRESENCE

 BUILDERS DEVOTIONAL DATE: FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 17,2021 TOPIC:HUNGER FOR GOD’S MANIFEST PRESENCE Ps 42:1(NIV) _As the deer pants for streams of water,so my soul pants for you, O God_ LESSONS David's desire to know God’s ways and his person was the same as life itself.He discovered that real life is in Christ.A man that can survive without God’s  manifest presence is a man without one. The vacuum created by the absence of God’s life cannot be filled by something else. Without God’s manifest presence, divine direction is a problem, the battle is still your battle, your life is still your life, but when his manifest presence guides on daily basis,  nations will fear, power will flow, mountains will move (psalm 114). Ps 114:5-7(NIV) _Why was it, O sea, that you fled,O Jordan, that you turned back,  you mountains, that you skipped like rams, you hills, like lambs?  Tremble, O earth, at the presence of the Lord,at the presence of the God of Jacob_ Most often, it is problem that causes men t

BUILDERS DEVOTIONAL - POWER OF GOD’S PRESENCE

BUILDERS DEVOTIONAL DATE: THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 16, 2021 TOPIC: POWER OF GOD’S PRESENCE TEXT: Ex 19:4(NIV) _and brought you to myself._ LESSON The place we dwell in Christ is in Him. A believer can't manifest the glory of God in a greater measure than the value he has for God’s presence. His presence is kingdom in us.  Treasure and value God’s manifest presence. It is our greatest asset. Samson trivialized this and sin robbed him of the manifest presence. He became emptied and lost the glory of God. Moses treasured God’s  manifest presence and he was a man of His glory. In fact, it was impossible to behold his face as normal Israelites could not behold his face. His secret was his value for God’s presence. Ex 33:16(NIV) _How will anyone know that you are pleased with me and with your people unless you go with us? What else will distinguish me and your people from all the other people on the face of the earth?"_ Unbelievers can buy cars, build houses etc but only the presence of
