Let RISKY love flow!
It’s been rightly said that an opportunity does not come to someone twice. The blessings that God will enrich your life with will come in form of opportunities; and if you don’t seize those opportunities, you will definitely miss out on God’s blessings. One of the opportunities that will come your way to receive the blessings of God is the opportunity to love someone. Love is an action word. Love is not a feeling. Love is a commitment to do something good to someone regardless of what they have done, or that you think they will do back in return. Love doesn’t consider what it will benefit before it reaches out to bless someone. I want to challenge you today, seize every opportunity you have to lavish the love of God on the people that you meet. Pay attention to the words of Max Lucado, “There is a time for risky love. There is a time for extravagant gestures. There is a time to pour out your affections on others! And when the time comes —seize it, don’t miss it.” Our Basic Scripture vs. 10 sums it up: “As we have therefore opportunity, let us do good unto all men, especially unto them who are of the household of faith.” This means that you must be ready to do good at every opportunity that comes your way. Don’t get in the habit of making excuses. Excuses Never Moved Someone Into Their Place Of Success And Glory. Excuses Are Seeds Of Failure That Will Definitely Produce A Harvest Of Regrets! As opportunities come your way to do good today or any day, go ahead and do it. If you want to enjoy the goodies that God has packaged for you, you must not for any reason withhold good from people even if they are not LOVABLE or even if they have hurt you beyond words! God has anointed you to be a channel of love. I call it “RISKY LOVE.” Let that love flow today!

Welcome to today’s devotional encounter with He that creates each new day after the order of His eternal plan! Do you know that today is going to be one of the best days of your life? And each new day given to you by God can be the best you have ever lived? How do I know? Because today’s 1st devotional scripture vs. 19 makes it very clear: “Blessed be the Lord, who daily loadeth us with benefits, even the God of our salvation.” GOD’S PLAN IS TO DAILY LOAD YOU WITH BENEFITS! Each New Day Has Something Special From The Throne Room For You And All Yours! Long before you opened your eyes to behold this beautiful new day or indeed any day, God blessed you and He has a plan. God looks into each day and fills it with great opportunities called “BENEFITS” for you to enjoy His goodness and greatness. The Bible says that the eyes of the Lord run to and fro throughout the whole earth to show himself strong on behalf of those whose hearts are loyal to Him. As far as God is concerned, today or indeed any new day in the remaining days of your life is not just another day. It’s not just a day like every other day. It’s a special day. It’s a day that has been crowned with BENEFITS for you. Your duty is to discover the BENEFITS in each day and to stop ALL BENEFIT-ROBBERS from touching them! Hear Ruth A Schabacker: “You need to realise that each day comes bearing its own gifts. Untie the ribbons.” YES, EVERY DAY IS A GIFT! It’s time for you to untie the ribbons of the gift called TODAY OR ANY OTHER DAY you live to see! Expect the best! Expect the crown of favour, the rain of mercy, grace, gain and not losses, the sunshine of healing, good health, open doors, dignity, glory, promotion, shame of your enemies, faster speed, GOOD NEWS, restoration, recovery and deliverance over premature death. Arise today and speak to all BENEFITS’ ROBBERS: Today is my day! Every day is a gift from my Father God! Loose off your hands in Jesus name!!! PRAYER POINTS:Take a song of worship as you’re led 1. In your own words, pray about today’s word as led now. 2. Father, I receive all the BENEFITS/blessings that You have packaged for me to enjoy today and DAILY this year! 3. Devil, I rebuke you in the name of Jesus. You BENEFITS’ ROBBERS; take your hands off my benefits. Take your hands off my treasures today in Jesus name. 4. Every good thing loaded into today for me; COME TO ME NOW (Pray this seriously for the next 7 days). 5. Every evil thing packaged for me FROM THE PIT OF HELL; GO BACK TO SENDER IN MULTIPLE FOLDS IN JESUS NAME (Pray this seriously). Pray about today as led now.
BASIC SCRIPTURE: GENESIS 18:15-22
A TOP SECRET OF ABRAHAM! One thing that God saw in Abraham that caused Him to choose him as His covenant partner was: “I know that he will train his children and his household to follow in his footsteps, and they shall keep the way of the Lord…” Note: “I know that he will train his children and his household.” God was saying that training children and your HOUSEHOLD is a vital secret to attract His attention! Prayer/fasting are great! Giving/tithing are great, but they are not enough! You must train your household to follow your footsteps and to follow the BIG FOOT of Jehovah God (His ways)! That means GOOD PARENTING or helping to parent is a covenant secret! That means also that the way you treat your children/HOUSEHOLD and the quality of the training you give them will go a long way in determining whether the promises God has made concerning you will become a reality. Zig Ziglar said “The best way to raise positive children in a negative world is to have positive parents who love them unconditionally and serve as excellent role models.” Be a positive parent or determine that you will be one when your season comes! “Good parenting helps foster empathy, honesty, self-reliance, self-control, kindness, cooperation, and cheerfulness” (Steinberg). It also promotes intellectual curiosity, motivation, and desire to achieve. It helps protect children from developing anxiety, depression, eating disorders, anti-social behavior, and alcohol and drug abuse. Some secrets of training are: 1. Pick your battles. Kids can’t absorb too many rules without turning off completely. Forget arguing about little stuff like fashion choices, etc. Focus on the things that really matter – like no hitting, no rude talk or lying, etc. 2. Stop the curses/bitterness! The Holy Ghost is showing me that there are at least 12, 780 parents using today’s devotional who are not at peace or in good relationships with their children! That’s a satanic lie to de-rail the destiny of such children! 3. Determine to be a role model – the word “FOOTSTEPS” means ROLE MODEL! Don’t be a liar. Keep your words and be the best hero/role model that they can ever have. 4. Dont hide your mistakes/failures. Teach them that you are human and that mistakes are normal and that the real failure is he/she who refuses to rise again! 4. Kiss and hug your spouse in front of the kids. Your marriage is the only example your child has of what an intimate relationship looks, feels, and sounds like. So it’s your job to set a great standard. Even if you have failed, it is NEVER TOO LATE to start and if you are not married, use today’s devotional to key into your marital miracle! 4. Don’t raise a spoiled kid. Keep this thought in mind: Every child is a treasure, but no child is the center of the universe. Teach him/her accordingly. Satan will not have the last laugh concerning your children or other children in Jesus name! Pray now! PRAYER POINTS: Take any song of worship as you’re led. 1. Pray generally about today’s word as you’re led now. 2. Every evil eye monitoring my children/grand children/loved ones; GO BLIND in Jesus name (Pray it seriously). Pray about today!
