The beauty of God’s creation

*Nice line from Ratan Tata's Lecture- in London*
👉🏿1.
Don't educate
your children
to be rich.
Educate them
to be Happy.
So when
they grow up
they will know
the value of things
not the price.

👉🏿2.
"Eat your food
as your medicines.
Otherwise
you have to
eat medicines
as your food."

👉🏿3.
The One
who loves you
will never leave you
because
even if there are
100 reasons
to give up
he/she will find
one reason
to hold on.

👉🏿4.
There is
a lot of difference
between
_human being_
and _being human._
A Few understand it.

👉🏿5.
You are loved
when you are born.
You will be loved
when you die.
In between
You have to manage…!

👉🏿6.
If u want to Walk Fast, 
Walk Alone..!
But 
if u want to Walk Far,
Walk Together..!!

👉🏿7.
Six Best Doctors in the World-
1.Sunlight
2.Rest
3.Exercise
4.Diet
5.Self Confidence
&
6.Friends
Maintain them in all stages of Life and enjoy healthy life

If you see the
moon …..
You see the
beauty of God …..
If you see
the Sun …..

THEME : A MOTIVATION MINDSET

DATE :– THURSDAY SEPTEMBER 7TH 2017

Memorise: So shall the knowledge of wisdom be unto thy soul: when thou hast found it, then there shall be a reward, and thy expectation shall not be cut off. Proverbs 24:14
Read: Haggai 1:12-15 (KJV)
1:12 Then Zerubbabel the son of Shealtiel, and Joshua the son of Josedech, the high priest, with all the remnant of the people, obeyed the voice of the Lord their God, and the words of Haggai the prophet, as the Lord their God had sent him, and the people did fear before the Lord.

1:13 Then spake Haggai the Lord's messenger in the Lord's message unto the people, saying, I am with you, saith the Lord.

1:14 And the Lord stirred up the spirit of Zerubbabel the son of Shealtiel, governor of Judah, and the spirit of Joshua the son of Josedech, the high priest, and the spirit of all the remnant of the people; and they came and did work in the house of the Lord of hosts, their God,

1:15 In the four and twentieth day of the sixth month, in the second year of Darius the king.

Bible in one year: 2nd Chronicles 14-16, Ezekiel 37:15-28, Hymn: sing hymn 7
MESSAGE:
Some people attend big Christian events for the sake of tradition, while some others attend because certain people are coming there. A crowd will often gather whenever there is an assembly where Jesus is present. If you attend such gatherings because of the crowd – just to belong or to show that you are current – you may not receive your desired blessings. In Mark 5:24-34, a crowd gathered around Jesus Christ on His way to Jairus’ house. For many of them, it was enough that they were in the crowd following Jesus, but right there in their midst, there was a woman who was not there because others were there; she was there because she so needed and desired to touch Jesus. She was determined in her heart that if only she could touch the hem of His clothes, she would receive her healing. She touched it and she was healed. That is what a motivated mindset can do. The Bible says she “came in the press behind”. She did not mind if people trampled on her, and she did not mind the pushing and shoving of the crowd; her singular focus was that she just had to touch the hem of the Master’s garment, no matter what it would take. To understand how motivated she was, you try getting to the front of a crowd from behind.

Moreover, another person who had a motivated mindset was Zerubbabel. Today’s Bible reading shows that when you have a focused mindset like Zerubbabel did, it will stir you up to take action. A motivated mindset fills your heart with conviction that you are overdue for a breakthrough, thereby ushering you into your desired blessing. For instance, when the man who was paralysed from the neck downwards was brought to Jesus, it was not for flimsy reasons (Mark 2:1-12). His friends felt he was overdue for a breakthrough, and so on their arrival, when the door was blocked off and there was no feasible way in through the window, they created a way through the roof. When you believe you are already overdue for a breakthrough, you will be compelled to take violent steps towards attaining your expectation. You will not care about the crowd, traditions or the need to socialize. You will not care about who is first, second or next to be attended to on a queue. All that fills your mind is that you are the next beneficiary of God’s mercy. Where do you stand now? Are you overdue for promotion, success, breakthrough, deliverance or prosperity? If you are, let your conviction on this drive you into your miracle. Such a belief has a way of motivating you to take actions that will trigger your blessing. It shall be well with you this season!
Key Point
While the expectations of the righteous are granted, those without expectations shall have nothing.

THE DAILY FOUNTAIN DEVOTIONAL CHURCH OF NIGERIA (ANGLICAN COMMUNION)

DATE: THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 7, 2017
READING: Colossians 4: 1-6

King James Version

1. Masters, give unto your servants that which is just and equal; knowing that ye also have a Master in heaven. Continue in prayer, and watch in the same with thanksgiving; withal praying also for us, that God would open unto us a door of utterance, to speak the mystery of Christ, for which I am also in bonds: that I may make it manifest, as I ought to speak. Walk in wisdom toward them that are without, redeeming the time. Let your speech be alway with grace, seasoned with salt, that ye may know how ye ought to answer every man.

TOPIC:  MORE INSTRUCTIONS FOR BELIEVERS

Superiors usually give instructions to those under them. The aim of such instructions is to enable those under them to perform their work well and to free them from possible problems. In the last chapter of this epistle, Paul gave six important instructions to children of God. First he enjoins Christians to treat those who work under them with fairness and equity, remembering that God is the master over all men. He also emphasized the need to live a life of thanksgiving, with fervent prayers and watchfulness. Our prayers should not only focus on our needs but also for the extension of the Kingdom of God. We are also to pray for boldness for ministers and evangelists as they labour in God's vineyard. Paul also emphasized the need for wisdom in our daily lives as we relate with others especially non Christians, discipline in time management and discretion in speech.

These instruction shows that Christians are not free to live anyhow they please. We must be aware of our mission as Christ's ambassadors, tasked with the responsibility of representing God here on earth and extending His kingdom. Are you adhering to these biblical instructions?

Hymn
1 Forth in thy name, O Lord, I go,
my daily labour to pursue;
thee, only thee, resolved to know,
in all I think or speak or do.

2. The task thy wisdom hath assigned
O let me cheerfully fulfil;
in all my works thy presence find,
and prove thy good and perfect will.

3. Preserve me from my calling's snare,
and hide my simple heart above,
above the thorns of choking care,
the gilded baits of worldly love.

4. Thee may I set at my right hand,
whose eyes my inmost substance see,
and labour on at thy command,
and offer all my works to thee.

5. Give me to bear thy easy yoke,
and every moment watch and pray,
and still to things eternal look,
and hasten to thy glorious day;

6. For thee delightfully employ
whate'er thy bounteous grace hath given,
and run my course with even joy,
and closely walk with thee to heaven.

Orin I.O.M. 4

Je ki nle se tayotayo;

Ki nsi mura d’ ojo ogo.

6. Ohunkohun t’o fi fun mi
Je kin le lo fun ogo Re:

PRAYER: Lord, help me to be committed to advancing the gospel and also to radiate your nature in my relationship with others.
