2018 Easter Retreat Fasting & Prayers DAY 7 (Thursday March 29th)

What Do You Think?

Scriptures For Meditation — Mark 9:14-29; Luke 6:45; Proverbs 4:23

“Guard your heart above all else, for it determines the course of your life.” Pro 4:23, NLT

Normally, conventional wisdom would advice that people should think before they speak. However, if some people did that, it would undoubtedly be a grave mistake for them indeed! (more…)

2018 Easter Retreat Fasting & Prayers DAY 6 (Wednesday March 28th)

Tongue In Check!

Scriptures For Meditation — Proverbs 18:20-21; Romans 4:17-21; Ezekiel 37:1-10
“Death and life are in the power of the tongue, And those who love it will eat its fruit.” Pro 18:21
The scripture quoted above, is a relatively familiar verse of scripture that we may have heard referenced a few times before now. As I meditated on today’s devotional, I realised that the verse before actually gives this latter verse a more rounded meaning.

Please Agree With Me

Scriptures For Meditation — Gen 11:1-6; Mat 18:19-20; Ecc 4:9-12

One of the most important statements that Jesus made in the bible concerning prayer, is the power that is released when two or more people come together in prayer.

He says in Mat 18:19 -20—

“Again I say to you that if two of you agree on earth concerning anything that they ask, it will be done for them by My Father in heaven.
For where two or three are gathered together in My name, I am there in the midst of them.” NKJV (more…)

Dare To Believe!

Scriptures For Meditation — Gen 15:1-21; Gen 17:1-22; Heb 6:11-15


As Good As It Gets…

Yesterday, we spoke about expectations and how we needed to be excited and expectant about what we are sure God is about to do in our lives.

The truth however, is that many people after waiting and hoping for a while without the manifestation of that which was hoped for, begin to lose heart — they get to a place where it is: “No thank you; not another prayer meeting; not another prophecy; not another “word of encouragement” or maybe in your case, it is “Oh no, not another retreat”.

2018 Easter Retreat Fasting & Prayers DAY 3 (Sunday March 25th)

Dare To Be Expectant!

Scriptures For Meditation — Psalm 62:5-8; Ephesians 3:20


I’ll like to begin today’s devotional by asking you a very important question about your attendance of the coming Easter Retreat —

What Are Your Expectations?

What are you really believing God for — are you just coming to simply “make up the numbers”, or are you determined and expectant that the time you will spend will count towards the advancement and fulfilment of your destiny? (more…)

Reflection & Thanksgiving

PRAYER FOCUS — Acknowledging and Celebrating God’s Past Faithfulness

Scriptures for Meditation — Psalm 66:1-20; Psalm 67:5-7

What Do You Say?

Our first scripture text today (Ps 66) takes us through a litany of exultations from the Psalmist, extolling how awesome the deeds of God have been particularly towards him, and towards man in general.
In his exuberant testimony to others extolling the greatness and goodness of God, He invites them to come and share in his experiences as well.
Hear what he says —

Blessed be God, Who has not turned away my prayer, Nor His mercy from me! Psa 66:20 (more…)
