TODAY’S DEVOTIONAL (Thursday 21st January 2021)

“You crown the year with your goodness, and your paths drip with abundance. They drop on the pastures of the wilderness, and the little hills rejoice on every side.

The pastures are clothed with flocks; the valleys also are covered with grain; they shout for joy, they also sing.” Psalms 65:11-13 NKJV


The scripture of our devotional text this morning was just a scripture thousands of years ago, but today it has become a reality in the lives of many of us. We believe that no matter what this year holds for us, it was already crowned with God’s goodness before we ever stepped our feet in it.

One beautiful thing about our God is the hallmark of finishing things before He starts that exits in His kingdom. That is what makes it impossible for Him to be defeated in any battle. We believe He has finished this year for us before we even started it. He has finished our lives before we started living it. He has finished the Cry of the Spirit Ministry before it even started.

He has finished everything in His plans for your life before it even started. That is why you should be confident!

These 21 days of this year, we have seen the goodness of the LORD defeat the plans and purposes of evil and aggrieved people against us. We have seen things maliciously cooked against us defeated.

We have tasted the abundance of God’s presence that drips with Heavenly things. We have seen miracles, signs and wonders in our lives that testifies of the goodness of GOD in our lives. Hallelujah!

These are the things that tells us the rest of the year is covered; every minute is divinely insured. So, fear not! Do not be dismay, for the LORD our God is with you like a mighty terrible one.

Our mandate is gradually moving from a regional mandate to a globe one. That mandate is people. Wherever a soul dwell on the face of the earth, that person is our mandate. You are our assignment under God. We are reaching you and every other people under Heaven as the LORD increases the frontiers of His mercies through us.

As our assignment, our job is to continue to reach you with the word of the LORD.

And as you continue to listen to Him through us; receiving edification, comfort and exhortation, and doing all He says we should all do, the best is yet to come. Do not forget one of the insightful part of yesterday’s devotional. It says our destiny in times like this is for the glory of the LORD to be risen upon us. The glory of the LORD shall be risen upon you!


There will be outbreaks of God in your life that you have never seen. People will see those outbreaks and glorify God. Some will burn their occult books and come to the apostolic truth like it happened in the days of Paul just by observing your life.

When the same happened in the days of Paul, the Bible says;

“Also, many of those who had practiced magic brought their books together and burned them in the sight of all. And they counted up the value of them, and it totaled fifty thousand pieces of silver.

So the word of the Lord grew mightily and prevailed.” Acts 19:19-20 NKJV

The Church global need to come into this same season, because what most preachers have preached and written down will not let the glory of the LORD rise upon us. It is far from the knowledge of God’s glory. It is the knowledge of the evil one, and need to be taken out of our hands and hearts.

There are lots of charismatic magical books in the hands of so many today. That is why they are in Ichabod situations. You may even be having one in your hands. Books that tells you everything but how to become a temple for God in the Spirit. A lot of people have taken those Charismatic magical books for God’s miracle books.

The books teach them about stars, and all kinds of spirits, and shows them how to use salt, water, candle, sand, money, fasting, incantation prayers at midnight and all forms of spiritism to invoke the supernatural. It tells them why they must be redeemed as first born, why they must give first fruits, use anointing oil and serve themselves unholy holy communion leading to outbreak of the demonic in their lives.

When you take Charismatic magical book to be God’s miracle books you will be booked for seasonal afflictions. A lady who had all the books written by certain preachers came to me some time ago in tears, sharing and demonstrating how helpless the books have been to her.


When I listened to her, I discovered that the books she was talking about are full of New Age doctrines and all forms of demonic and humanistic Philosophies wrapped in twisted scriptures. That was why none helped her faith in Christ Jesus. They only helped the preachers to smile to the bank.

Friend, if you take books filled with charismatic witchcraft and sorcery for miracle books, you will have yourself to blame while the authors smile to the bank!

As the people begin to encounter the knowledge of God’s glory, they will come to the very moment of truth that this lady came into.

They will realize the errors in those books and burn them like the believers in the Days of Apostle Paul. They will not burn them because they hate the authors, no! They will burn them because the content did not teach them the difference between the holy and the unholy; the clean and the unclean; what is of God and what is not of God.

Friend we live in the days of hyper deception. The books that will help you are books that will expose the deception and make you a temple for God in the Spirit, not books that will tell you about voices crying against you form the village, spirit husband and etc.

The burning of the charismatic magical books in our days will be an act of the Spirit of God living in the people, because the Bible says the priests who did not teach God’s people the difference between the clean and the unclean will be rejected in the days of His glory.

The greatest need of the hour are preachers who will teach and train believers to walk in discernment and function as temples for God in the Spirit indeed. People God will live or sit on to unleash His glory. Heaven want to end time Church to be fair as the moon, clear as the Sun and terrible as an army with banners.


The Bible says;

“When Israel went out of Egypt, the house of Jacob from a people of strange language, Judah became His sanctuary, and Israel His dominion.” Psalm 114:1-2 NKJV

Prophetically, some in the body of Christ have come out of Egypt (sin) but Egypt is yet to come out of them. Hence there is no presence of God upon their lives. God want to change that! He wants to change everything that is why we must separate ourselves from those nonsense and come into the glory of the only begotten of the father; full of grace and truth.

When we become temples for God in the Spirit, we will become a blessing. When we say becoming a blessing we are not saying having enough money to give to others. That is the mentality of those who have been corrupted by the false gospel.

Becoming a blessing is causing God to break out in the lives of others like Abram did for Lot. It is carrying a presence of God that makes empowers others to prosper as soon as they come in contact with you.

Do not forget, the most accurate will of God for your life is not just for you to be blessed, but for you to be a blessing to others. Yes, God’s utmost desire is to display the riches of His mercies, the riches of His grace, and the riches of His glory in and through us.

We become a blessing to those around us when that happens.

Like I stated in our Book, “Riding on Covenant Wings” there are three manifestations of the supernatural in the kingdom of GOD. In other words, three classes of things that the supernatural realm of God does in the lives of men. The supernatural of God Releases Miracles, Blessings, and the Covenant into our lives.

Now, faith brings the miraculous, the anointing brings the blessing because it breaks yokes and lift burdens, but the glory brings the covenant. When God is aligning you for miracles He will talk to you about faith. When He is aligning you for blessings, He will begin to talk to you about obedience, but when He is aligning you with His Glory He will talk to you about the covenant.

The covenant is where God will hide you anytime He wants to demonstrate His glory in your Life! That is why it is stronger than the miraculous or the blessing. In fact, a man or woman who carries it will produce miracles and cause blessings to rest on others. You see that in the life of Abraham. God wanted all nations to be blessed in Him. He did not just teach him faith and obedience, He brought him into the covenant.


A man in covenant is a man in proper order. He can activate the riches of God’s mercy by faith, and bring the miraculous to people. He can also activate the riches of God’s grace by truth because He is operating in the riches of His glory. I hope you understand me.

God want you to be a blessing to people not a burden. I think I should wrap up this devotional with that.

God is ready to pour Himself into your life is that you can be just that. The question is, are you ready? Are you ready to come to the place of the covenant where you can operate in the riches of His glory and activate the riches of His mercies and the riches of His grace upon people?

Sadly, many are burdens instead of a blessing to people. A lot are burdens even to ministers of the gospel. They make ministers of the gospel lament because of their demands. They are anointed to drain us through cruel demands for help.

They make us their ‘God’ and bring us into serious problems with God who called and put us into ministry. I have seen people who literally treat me like their El-shaddai (their all sufficient one) instead of calling on GOD, our true all sufficient one. They forget that I am a worm Jacob who need God to move in my finances like they need.

It is not the will of God for any of us to be a burden to any of us. I know preachers who are a burden to their members, and I know what the members go through; people will never be blessed when you become a burden to them. So I decided not to be so to even those I have labored for. I try my best not to be a burden on the Church I pastor. For instance, I just managed to pay my rent yesterday. That is since January 1st.

These folks do not know that I spend so much to run so many things in the ministry and my family, and most times the offerings are not enough. God have to do crazy miracles that astonishes me to bail Himself out. I have the God given right to stand before the Church and ask them to contribute to my kids’ school fees, my house rents and everything.


The best way to live is to be a blessing not a burden. And you can never be a blessing to people until you start ridding on covenant wings and throw away some grave yards’ clothes! Yes, there are set mentalities you must do away with. There are decisions you must make. God lifts the poor from the dunghill and set them among princes. He can do the same for you. Just change your mindset.

Quit depending on people and start deposing on God. If you do, He will pour Himself into you and make you a blessing. You will move from being a burden to others to becoming a blessing them.

Come out of the set mentality of calling on people to help you. Use the same energy to call on God, and then allow Him to move people to help you. Stop moving the people yourself. You will remain a reproach. God can talk to people about your need if you are truly in synch with Him. But if you a worshiper by mouth instead of by heart, things will be difficult for you until you begin to pursue the prosperity of the wicked.

Being in sync is key to living a blessed life on earth. God does not bless a life in disorder. He will first put that life in a good Church and use that church to put the life in order before blessing it. He set the solitary in family to bring those who are bound into prosperity.

Make this day a day of one critical decision; the decision to be a blessing to everyone and no longer a burden to anyone.

Then take yourself to the throne of grace, in prayer. Assemble all of GOD’s written promises in scripture and begin to pray standing on them. As you do He will begin to show you the church to go plant yourself in for molding if you have none. Then He will begin to use your spiritual authority to position you to be a blessing.

You will also need to understand what it means not to trust in man. Any one in need who make people their El-shaddai will die in need. There will never be any help from God for that person. You must understand that perfectly.


This is what the LORD says:

“Cursed is the one who trusts in man, who draws strength from mere flesh and whose heart turns away from the LORD.

That person will be like a bush in the wastelands; they will not see prosperity when it comes. They will dwell in the parched places of the desert, in a salt land where no one lives.

“But blessed is the one who trusts in the LORD, whose confidence is in him. They will be like a tree planted by the water that sends out its roots by the stream. It does not fear when heat comes; its leaves are always green.

It has no worries in a year of drought and never fails to bear fruit.” Jeremiah 17:5-8 The Message
