GOD WORKS WONDERS- TESTIMONIES

God is still doing strange works and strange acts among His people. He did not end sign and wonders  in the old and new testament era. He is still working wonders, miracles and breakthroughs. Testimonies have the power to replicate. David testified of how God helped him to defeat the lion and the bear and he had victory over Goliath  1 Samuel 17:34-50. So I will bring to you striking testimonies shared in Living Faith Church Worldwide  a.k.a Winners Chapel International this year(2015). I pray that as you go through this testimonies, you will have a delivery of your own testimonies.
‘SS’ TURNED TO ‘AA’! “My genotype has never been an issue until when my marriage was in view. It became a burden in my heart. During the 21-days fasting, on the 4th day, the man of God declared that, ‘SS’ was turning to ‘AA’. I keyed into it. I prayed then brought out my expectation card and ticked the prayer point as answered. After the last breakthrough service, I had a conviction in my heart to check my gen…

BE GRATEFUL AND GIVE THANKS

Image
PSALMS 118:1 O give thanks unto the Lord, for He is good: because His mercy endureth forever.
We have three (3) days to go before 2015 wraps up and we move into 2016. There are lots of reflections to be done and one of it is ‘thanksgiving’. Lets ask ourselves this questions:
Have you really thanked God for bringing you thus far?
Have you thanked Him for preserving and keeping you?
Have you...?
Maybe , you are saying that God has not done anything for you. Beloved, God has done alot for you.
You are complaining that 2015 has ended and nothing has happened in your life, ‘am not married and I don’t have job’. There are mentally deranged people on the street and in the psychiatric hospital, no one is thinking about marrying them. Thank God you are even fit for marriage and for a job.
You are even saying: ‘i keep seeing my menstrual flow, when will I have a children. There is someone that is even praying to see her own. Have faith, your baby will come. Thank God.
‘Father, am still a tenant. Many a…

KEEP PRESSING.

LUKE 18:1-8

And he spake a parable unto them to this end, that men ought always to pray, and not to faint; 2 Saying, There was in a city a judge, which feared not God, neither regarded man: 3 And there was a widow in that city; and she came unto him, saying, Avenge me of mine adversary. 4 And he would not for a while: but afterward he said within himself, Though I fear not God, nor regard man; 5 Yet because this widow troubleth me, I will avenge her, lest by her continual coming she weary me.
Things don't just go away, you make them go. Things don't just happen, you make them happen. The widow in our scriptures today showed persistence in her asking in verses 3-5. She kept coming and asking. She fixed her focus on her purpose and kept pressing. Are you pressing enough? Are you praying enough?  Ask yourself, what am i not doing for my answers to come forth.
Many of us relax after one breakthrough. We give up after trying for so long or have you tried changing the method you are using. Wors…

ASK YOUR FATHER.

Matthew  7:11
If ye then, being evil, know how to give good gifts unto your children, how much more shall your Father which is in heaven give good things to them that ask him?

What do you need? What do you want?
Ask your Father in Heaven and He is sure to give it to you. He is a God that gives good gifts to His Children.

Note: His 'children'.
You have to be His child to have the right to ask Him of anything.
Meaning, you have to be born again; John 3:3-7. And then you have that right to ask freely.

Again I ask, what do you need? What do you want?
Is it a wife, husband, child, house, car, job or in need of deliverance, healing, restoration etc. Ask! Matthew 7:7

And be very specific. Jesus asked the blind man, what do you want me to do for you and he said that I may receive my sight. He did not dabble around. He was very specific with his request.

Mark  10:51
"And Jesus answered and said unto him, What wilt thou that I should do unto thee? The blind man said unto him, Lor…

"I CAN'T PRAISE GOD"...

ISAIAH  61:3
"To appoint unto them that mourn in Zion, to give unto them beauty for ashes, the oil of joy for mourning, the garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness; that they might be called trees of righteousness, the planting of the LORD, that he might be glorified."

Let's see this instance of why people say "I can't praise God"

Tayo is a graduate of Chemical engineering, has been looking for a job for the past 12years but in spite of his struggles, he managed to get married and has two lovely kids. But still he is saying 'I can't give God praise'.

He has forgotten that it was this same God who saw him through school, helped him pay his fees when there was no hope of finishing school.
He graduated top of his class when his mates where lamenting with extra year.
He got a scholarship to carry out his Masters.
He got married, has two kids.
And yet He can't praise God.
How ungrateful is that?

Yes!, It may be true that you are not where y…

PATIENTLY WAIT.

PSALMS  62:5 
"My soul, wait thou only upon God; for my expectation is from him."

Most times, it seems as if you don't know how you are going to get there or even where you are heading.
You are feeling lost, forgotten and dejected.
2015 is ending and 2016 is fast approaching and nothing has happened in your life. Funny enough, if you check closely you will see a little thing that has happened in your life that is worth thanking God for.

You have been waiting for your promise to come to past.
And it seems that God has forgotten you. He hasn't!
Hebrews  10:23 "Let us hold fast the profession of our faith without wavering; (for he is faithful that promised)"
So hold fast on the promise of God for He too faithful to fail you.
Patiently wait on Him Hebrews  10:36 says  "For ye have need of patience, that, after ye have done the will of God, ye might receive the promise."
Don't rush! Follow his timing and leading.

Be encouraged and stand your ground. …

EX-LESBIAN NOW A BORN-AGAIN CHRISTIAN SENDS PLEA TO ALL PASTORS IN AMERICA

Image
Dear Pastors,

There are things I urgently need for you to know. And there are things desperately need you to tell
me. I shudder to think where I'd be today if my pastor had not been bold enough to tell me the truth regarding homosexuality, a lifestyle in which
I lived for more than 30 years. Pastors, please take time out of your busy schedule to read my humble plea.
First, I need you to tell me in no uncertain terms that homosexuality is a sin. Show me what the Bible says and tell me that the Word of God is
eternal and does not change with the times. Please don't tell me that you won't address it or that you don't have an opinion. Because if you
don't speak up, I am going to think that it's all right and will be headed for an eternity in hell.
Pastors, when I come to you seeking answers, I need you to boldly speak the truth in love. My very salvation depends upon it.
Next, please let me know that Jesus' death on the cross was enough to cover any sin I hav…

THE NOTE IN THE BIBLE

Image
An 8 year old girl left a note in a Bible addressed to Jesus at an elementary school in Kentucky. In the note, she pleaded with Jesus to stop Eric Rivera from abusing her again. From the note, it was known that she has been abused since she was 6 years old.

Covington, Kentucky, police found the note and interviewed her. She disclosed to detectives everything that had been going on. A search was carried out by officers in the suspects home and pornographic magazines and 180 pornographic images on his phone was found.

Eric Rivera, after two years of litigation was arrested and charged for first degree sodomy, first degree sexual abuse and several other felonies. He pleaded guilty and now faces up to 25 years in prison.

Isn't God wonderful? He sure answers prayers.

FACE YOUR FEAR

Image
Let me start by asking you this question: What is your fear?
Each and everyone of us at one point in time had fears that prevented us from achieving our dreams and goals.
And this article is to help you recognize your fear(s) and face it(them).

Now using Norman Vincent Peale concept of overcoming our fears. Two magic words: Do It!
"Have you an idea?
Do you have a dream?
Do you have an ambition?
Have you some great impulses, some burning desire?
Are you defeated by something?
Are you afraid of something? " DO IT!

No one can attain great heights in life if he can't stand up and face his fears by taking a step towards realizing his dreams and goals. Either a long or short term goals.
What is it you think you can't do? You have the fear of speaking in public, singing in public or you just feel you are not good enough. Stand up and proof to yourself that you can.

Overcome your fear by taking a step towards what you fear and overcome it. Do the things you think you cannot…

Image

About 3000 people have been evacuated from the remaining inhabitants of the 35 villages on both sides of Khabur river.

Newsweek says, ISIS might use the Assyrian hostages for a prisoner swap with Kurdish fighters.

Calls made by relatives of the captives were answered  by ISIS members telling them that nothing can be done to be done for the hostages.

Last week, ISIS beheaded 21 Egyptian Coptic Christians in Libya.

Personally, I believe all…

A WORD FOR YOU

Image
NUMBERS 23:19. God is not a man, that He should lie; neither the son of man, that He should repent: hath He not said, and shall He not do it? or hath He not spoken, and shall He not make it good?

What is that miracle you want God to do in your life? God will bring it to pass if only you believe. Am encouraging you not to give up hope. Hold unto His word, locate where in his word is talking about your need specifically and see changes in your life. It shall come to pass. Believe!


WORD FOR TODAY-HE WILL SUPPLY...

PHILIPIANS 4:19
But my God shall supply all your need according to his riches in glory by Christ Jesus.

Every Christian loves this scripture and I love it too but we fail to look at what we need to do to bring about the supplying. God's promises is ever sure, He never fails; though it may tarry it will surely come to pass.

Let's look at Philippians 4:1-19 verse by verse and see what we need to do to bring about our God given supply

Verse 1= Stand fast in the Lord. Hold unto His word.

Verse 2= Be of the same mind. Don't keep malice, have hatred and envy towards one another.

Verse 3= Offer help and assistance to your fellow brethren.

Verse 4= Rejoice always. Don't let sadness and depression take hold of you. Remember "with joy shall you draw waters out of the wells of salvation". Be joyful at all times no matter the circumtances surrounding you.

Verse 5= Let your stand be know to all men. Others may, I will not. Get involved in soul winning. Jesus is coming soo…

SCRIPTURE FOR TODAY

Habakkuk 2:1-4 Habakkuk  2:1 I will stand upon my watch, and set me upon the tower, and will watch to see what he will say unto me, and what I shall answer when I am reproved.

2:2 And the LORD answered me, and said, Write the vision, and make it plain upon tables, that he may run that readeth it.

2:3 For the vision is yet for an appointed time, but at the end it shall speak, and not lie: though it tarry, wait for it; because it will surely come, it will not tarry.

2:4 Behold, his soul which is lifted up is not upright in him: but the just shall live by his faith.

PRAYER: Father let every plan and purpose you have for my life find practical fulfillment now in Jesus Name. Amen.

GOD'S WORD MEDITATION

READ: PSALMS 84:7-12

Psalms  84:7 They go from strength to strength, every one of them in Zion appeareth before God.

Psalms  84:8 O LORD God of hosts, hear my prayer: give ear, O God of Jacob. Selah.

Psalms  84:9 Behold, O God our shield, and look upon the face of thine anointed.

Psalms  84:10 For a day in thy courts is better than a thousand. I had rather be a doorkeeper in the house of my God, than to dwell in the tents of wickedness.

84:11 For the LORD God is a sun and shield: the LORD will give grace and glory: no good thing will he withhold from them that walk uprightly.

Psalms  84:12 O LORD of hosts, blessed is the man that trusteth in thee.

ARE YOU BORN AGAIN?

"Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away behold all things are become new." 2 Corinthians 5:17.

God wants whats best for everyone. He gave you the life you are living. He loves you. How? He sent His only son to die for your sins(John 3:16). All He is asking is for you to give that life back to Him for safe keeping. Yes! You may be a committed church goer but 'are you really in Christ and Christ in you?'

"For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God;"

Look at it this way, you trust the bank for the safe keeping of your money even when you know the bank can fold at any time. Why don't you give your life to God and trust Him with it. God is calling.

If you want to take this important decision, pray this prayer:

Heavenly Father, I come to you today. Thank you for this opportunity you have given me. I believe that Jesus died for my sins. I repent of all my sins. Please forgive me. Take me as your son. Wa…
