There are many voices speaking daily to us. We speak to ourselves, and many more speak to us, our spouses, sponsors, children, friends, religious leaders, secular leaders, and so on.
Wisdom demand that we sift through what we hear, and take hold of that which nourishes our soul.
Every and any word spoken that gives you unholy sorrow or is contrary to what God says about you, you must reject right away. Do not give room for such words, regardless of the guise in which it was spoken a resting place to alight in your mind.
What has God spoken concerning you, your life’s situation, and circumstances? What are you hearing left right and center? Just because the prophecy is spoken by all and sundry does not make it The Truth.
You need to remember Jehoshaphat in 2 Chronicles 18 – all 400 prophet prophesied the same thing and they were all wrong. Measure words with The Word of God.
At a point Jesus had to rebuke Satan speaking through Peter. Matthew 16:22b This shall never happen to you! How many good things, godly things have the naysayers say will never happen to you? Rebuke it!!
Jesus turned and said to Peter, “Get behind me Satan! You are a stumbling block to me; you do not have in mind the concerns of God, but merely human concerns.” Matthew 16:23
By now you should know there are some Peters around you that need to be rebuked, from the pulpit to the bedroom, the statehouse to the classroom, and even in your own head!
Rebuke every voice that is not speaking the concerns of God in your ears. You have the power and authority to rebuke! Use it!!!!
Death and life is in the power of the tongue – Proverbs 18:21
Your actions and reactions now that you have been transformed is going to be weighed, put on different scales, scrutinized and probed.
Stay true to yourself and to God. Be led by the Holy Spirit through the word of God. I say again friends, be led by the word of God or else your John will be called Zechariah. Yes!
There must be an overhaul of the old in your life and mine, making room for the new. The Lord is doing a new thing!
You have been #transformed! From #glorytoglory- it is #continuous.
Overtime as you walk with the Lord and He works in you to will and to act daily in order to fulfill His good pleasure in you, with you, and through you, you begin to grow and mature.
Those irritants, the irritants of life becomes less and less of an irritant because He is working in you and you are getting it!
You see the games as its been played on different angles, God and His sovereign plan and purpose on the one hand, and the devil and His manipulating cohort on the one side.
You then daily choose to dance a tango in rhythm to the tune of heaven knowing fully well who is holding your hands.
Fear and doubt begin to dissipate as you step here and there in rhythmic patterns as ordained of God!
No happenstance friends! It’s all part of His plan.
You are much wiser, see clearer, understand better, more confident and grounded. You are evolving! Own It! It Is yours! ☀️Radiant Glory
Shalom! Shalom! Shalom!
Discernment will guide you from sharing your dreams with your enemies like Joseph did with his brothers – Genesis 37:5 Even those that should love and celebrate the fact that you can dream at all may kick against your lofty dreams like Jacob did. No matter how Jacob kicked against it, regardless of the evil schemes of Joseph’s brothers, the Word of God came to pass. So shall the Word of God concerning you come to pass for the glory of His Holy name. Amen
Saul was smart enough to keep the part about the anointing from his uncle. He took a cue from 1 Samuel 9:27 As they were going down to the outskirts of the city, Samuel said to Saul, “Tell the servant to go on ahead of us.” And he went on. “But you stand here awhile, that I may announce to you the word of God.” Many lack discernment and would ignore cues to avoid pitfalls. May the Lord himself guide us all. Amen
1 Samuel 10: 14 Then Saul’s uncle said to him and his servant, “Where did you go?” So he said, “To look for the donkeys. When we saw that they were nowhere to be found, we went to Samuel.” 15 And Saul’s uncle said, “Tell me, please, what Samuel said to you.” 16 So Saul said to his uncle, “He told us plainly that the donkeys had been found.” But about the matter of the kingdom, he did not tell him what Samuel had said.
Beware of those that act like they care for you and you know, kind of, its all a facade. They are only acting as such to know your plan so as to jeopardize you. Pray for discernment to see through such, but more importantly yourself, for the heart of man is desperately wicked, who can know it.
Revelation knowledge brings assurance, confidence, and peace. Lord release unto us access to hidden secrets that will accelerate the fulfillment of our destiny today in Jesus’s name. Amen. —- Culled from Pastor E. A. Adeboye, Open Heavens Devotional, May 2nd, 2018

God speaks! Are we listening? His words( The Bible) are the means through which we primarily hear from him. He also speaks through dreams and visions. He has spoken again! He who has ears should listen. We must all examine ourselves! What error have we fallen into? What pact have we agreed to?
The Lord showed me myself, in a place taking care of children, lots of them, more like a teacher in a school. I looked and saw a scene, a boardroom sort of, with men in suit. Then a crash, a break in through the walls. Here comes in, a gorilla, huge, fearsome looking stretching out its hands. The men collectively wrote out a cheque and gave it to the gorilla and it left.
The men were converging to discuss what just happened when the gorilla returned and demanded cash. In my heart, I was wondering what this was all about. I moved quickly like a mother hen to defend the children, but the gorilla was not looking our way.
I saw the men carrying bags of money, lots and lots of it to give to this gorilla, still looking on when I woke up.
What is this Lord I asked in my prayers when I woke up! What could it mean? Could it be that the men made a pact with the gorilla and it has come to get paid as agreed? What does the gorilla represent? Who are those men in suits? A boardroom? What is this Lord? Refusing a cheque and demanding for cash means now. It wants to be paid right now!.
What pact could these well-dressed men have made with a gorilla that warrants it barging in on them like this? Many questions have been raising in my mind since then! I have been praying but honestly, I don’t even know how to pray other than for mercy, whatever that means in this situation!
Lord God Almighty you are the All-knowing, all-seeing, and only wise God. You know what these means and only you can protect and shield the innocent. Lord have mercy on all concerned. Prevail over the wicked and strike evil down among your people in Jesus mighty name. Let your name alone be glorified.
Let every evil pact be destroyed today by the blood of Jesus Christ. Let us not pay the debt we do not owe Lord. Let the blood of Jesus that speaks of better things than that of Abel speak for your children.
Oh Lord arise! Arise in judgment over the wicked. Every tongue speaking guile be silenced. Expose every wolf in sheep’s clothing! Arise Oh Lord! Arise in your wrath and execute vengeance upon the unrepentant evil one I pray in Christ Jesus mighty name. Amen.
Let your Kingdom come and, your will be done. Praise unto your Holy name Oh Lord! Amen
Shalom! Shalom! Shalom!
As a man thinks, so is he! Dare to see yourself standing in your full stature! In the glory of the Lord your God! No micro managing here! Live large! ☀️Radiant Glory
