TODAY’S DEVOTIONAL (Sunday 1ST August 2021)

“I will instruct you and teach you in the way you should go; I will guide you with My eye.

Do not be like the horse or like the mule, which have no understanding, which must be harnessed with bit and bridle, else they will not come near you.

Many sorrows shall be to the wicked; but he who trusts in the Lord, mercy shall surround him.” Psalms 32:8-10 NKJV


It’s the first day of the 8th Month of the year and what a devotional text to start the month with. The first lines said;

“I will instruct you and teach you in the way you should go;”

If we bend our ears to the LORD to be taught by Him and instructed, I believe we will have the best of GOD for the month.

Eight is the number of New Beginning. Sometimes the need for fresh beginnings cannot be over emphasized. So many of us need fresh beginnings in so many areas of our lives. God use fresh beginnings to bring what is not in His plans to an end, He also uses same to start what is in His plans.

So, we can believe Him to make the month our month of fresh beginnings of higher dimensions of blessings and manifestations of His Spirit. Yes, we need higher dimensions of blessings and manifestations of the Spirit to be all He has called or designed us to be within a particular time.

Jesus was designed to be the prime minister of Egypt, the minister of Agriculture, a father to Pharaoh and a senate president without even going to school. And that He became as designed by the LORD. But what made it happened was higher dimensions of God’s blessings on His life and Higher manifestations of the Spirit of God in his life.

The Spirit captured the heart of pharaoh. God’s blessings will always capture the heart of people to do you good. It can even turn or stir the heart of your haters to promote you.

Expect the best of God this month if you will spend its days in the center of His will for your life.

On the flip side, I see some innocent people giving new beginning seed to greedy preachers this month. Oh yes, a lot of greedy prophets and prophetesses will become rich this month using the desperation of suffering people.

Many have not really come to the understanding that prophetic numerology is not for money making or breakthrough seeking, but for us to walk with God in a perverse and crocked generation.


to walk with an invisible God will require His word – the Bible, an accurate preacher of that word, a good church and prophetic information hidden in numbers and other communication systems of God’s kingdom. All these will help you discern His footsteps and make them your pathways.

I grew up to discover that a people who do not know how to make God’s footsteps their pathways in a wicked world will always miss their way in life. When you miss your way in life, misery will become your companion and sin a lifestyle.

In fact, if someone misses their way in life, sin will become a norm and righteousness an odd thing. They will begin to accept defiled or ungodly things they ones rejected. Sometimes when that happens, things that are good will begin to be withheld from you, making it impossible for your life (land) to yield God’s increase.

At that time, you will find your life yielding the reward of your bad decisions, leading to sorrow. The Bible says;

“Yes, the Lord will give what is good; and our land will yield its increase. Righteousness will go before Him, and shall make His footsteps our pathway.” Psalms 85:12-13 NKJV

Friend, if you must miss anything in life, please do not miss your way through the wild of this wicked world. Learn to make GOD’s footsteps your pathways. It will help you produce good decisions.


Friend, I want you to understand that this is a new month; your decisions will make the greatest impact on your life. If there is anything you must give double attention to this month is your decision making process. Your life today is a product of the accumulated decisions and choices you made yesterday.

Your decisions are the reason you for your current state of life either you believe it or not. Your life TODAY is a product of the decisions you have made in all the years you have lived on earth.

I have made decisions for over 45 years. Some bad others good.

My life today is a product of all the decisions I made all the years. I am not satisfied with where I am today hence still pressing. I wished I had known better, I would have made better decisions that would have taken me further than where I am right now in my life and ministry.

Friends, decisions are some of the most powerful tools in this life.

People are in Heaven today because of the decisions they made. Others are in hell today because of the decisions they made. If you make a good decision, your life will be happy, and if you make a bad one your life will be sad and sorrowful.

Many times we blame the devil for how things turned out in our lives not knowing that our decisions are really responsible. God knows the power of decisions that is why he wants to guide us in our decisions making process this month.

Yes, He is a loving Father who hates to sees us in sorrows. His loving hands are forever stretched to help and guide us. Having made us free moral agents, He does not manipulate us to do His bidding. It is unclean spirits that do that, most times using some preachers.


“I will instruct you and teach you in the way you should go; I will guide you with My eye.

Do not be like the horse or like the mule, which have no understanding, which must be harnessed with bit and bridle, else they will not come near you.

Many sorrows shall be to the wicked; but he who trusts in the Lord, mercy shall surround him.” Psalms 32:8-10 NKJV

Many sorrows shall be to those whose decisions flow from their hearts, because the heart is desperately wicked who can know it. But those whose decisions flow from the Heart of God through the Holy Scriptures shall have peace.

Jesus painted a picture of the kind of life that we live if our decisions are from our hearts instead of His. He said

“For out of the heart proceed evil thoughts, murders, adulteries, fornications, thefts, false witness, blasphemies:

These are the things which defile a man: but to eat with unwashen hands defileth not a man.” Matthew 15:19-20 KJV

In other words, if our decisions are products of our carnal hearts, we will be doing things that will be defiling our lives and bringing many sorrows to us. If you see a fornicator, an adulterer, a thief, or false witness you have seen someone who made a decision to do all that from his heart.

Time has come to check where our decisions are proceeding from. For instance, I once have a preacher breaking the curses of single motherhood. I laugh with sadness in my heart; the rate of ignorance and deception in the Church calls for sober reflections. Most single mothers are not made singles mothers by demons, but by men they slept with and took in for prospective husbands.

Some made a decision to have sex but did not considered the consequences, and they became single with kids thereafter. The truth remains, if we all decide to keep sex where God created it to be, there will be no single motherhood on earth. In fact, not just single motherhood; there will be no adultery, fornication, lesbianism and all kinds of sexual abominations.


Friend, God want to instruct you this month. If we are not instructed, we will self-destruct. He wants to guide our decisions this month. Do not go on with the habit of listening to your heart and taking decisions based on your feelings, imagination or memory. Let God guide you!

As we bring this to a close, I want you to understand that our personal decisions come from five basic realms; (1). Our carnal nature (our hearts), (2) The realm of darkness, (3) The influence from the fallen world, (4) The realm of Light (The Holy Spirit) (5) People influence by either the carnal nature, the realm of darkness, the fallen world or the Holy Spirit.

Our lives will only be better off if our decisions proceed from the Holy Spirit of God in us. It’s my prayer that GOD will use this word to shape your journey through this month in Jesus precious name.

Happy New Month!
