DON’T STOP, DIG DEEP, FIGHT IT THROUGH – Week 26 Devotion


TB Joshua Church Nigeria | tbjfansuk.wordpress.com

John 16:33, ““I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world.”
When God created man, He gave them the right to life; within that right was discretion, the     ability to decide what to do, without which life is meaningless. All of us who have fallen have made a decision and all of us who have not fallen, faced similar temptations but made a different decision. Child of God, why are you down because of discouragement? That trouble, sickness and discouragement will not come is a false doctrine. When it hits, speed up the attack. It is not the time to relax and become discouraged.
We fight through our failure and fear by maximising our forward motion. You can choose to walk out on wrong opportunities and you can choose to let the One who created you help you. You can choose to pray the more, fast the more and commit to God the more. Hear Jesus saying to you, in the Book of John 16:33, you who live in the world, I have given you the strength to overcome whatever comes. When discouragement comes, don’t stop; dig deep and fight it through. To His power, nothing is impossible.

A CLEAN HEART Week 25 Devotion


TB Joshua Church Nigeria | tbjfansuk.wordpress.com

Each time we sin, we come short of God’s grace. When we come short of His grace, our strength and everything that makes meaning in us is gone.
David must have felt very dirty when he realized he had sinned. Sin is the bitter root of sorrow. When it is taken away, we can pray in faith.
Whether your sin is great or small, you can still be cleansed.
Say to God, “Dirty as I am – You can still cleanse me”.
Psalm 51:10 – Create in me a clean heart, O God, and renew a steadfast spirit within me.

FILLING YOUR PRAYER WITH SCRIPTURES – Week 24 Devotion


TB Joshua Church Nigeria | tbjfansuk.wordpress.com

Using the Word of God in your prayer helps ensure that your prayer lines up with God’s Word and intention for your life. So, fill your prayers with scriptures so that you do not discuss your battle instead of the one fighting for you. Jesus has no place in the life that is not dominated by the Word, because the Word dominating you is the Lordship of Christ in you. If you are a doer of the Word, the Word will be living in your lips, just exactly as it lives in the Master’s mouth. Your word becomes God’s Word and your lips becomes God’s ambassador. It’s not the amount of prayer you pray, but the faith you put into your prayer that counts. For Jesus Christ has done everything for us, all we need to do is to believe.

BE CALM AND DETERMINED Week 23 Devotion


TB Joshua Church Nigeria | tbjfansuk.wordpress.com


Have you ever felt as if you were between a rock and a hard place? Have you ever felt as if you were in the middle of a storm and the waves and winds wanted to overwhelm you?
Sometimes in life, it seems as if the world around us is coming to an end. It is in critical situations like this that we know a man of faith, a true Christian, a true born again. The quality of faith is not measured by our attitude to God when the goings are good but when times are hard, I mean, when our fate seems to hang in the balance.
Job 23:10, “But He knows the way that I take; when He has tested me, I shall come forth as gold.”

When trouble comes, keep calm and be determined. Even if you suffer humiliation, be patient and wait on the Lord. Remember, gold is tested by fire and human character is tested in the furnace of humiliation. Gold is not valued until it is tested; if gold must be gold, it must pass through fire. As a Christian, when you are humiliated by any foolish thing, keep calm and be determined. What you are passing through today may be to reform you for a better position in Christ or to prepare you for a higher level in life. Therefore, let your mind rise and seek the things that are above so that you can be comforted in the presence of sorrow, hardship, pain, setback and failure.

For a man or woman of faith, when trials come, there is always a future. When you have Jesus in your heart, He remains in your heart forever. Make Him your Friend in life, your Comforter and Saviour.

HOW MUCH FAITH DO YOU HAVE? Week 22 Devotion


The promise of God can only be appropriated by faith which comes through hearing and obeying the Word of God. The instant you believe, you become a possessor of the Father’s nature and when you truly believe, your heart will be at rest. But if your heart is uneasy, if you are fearful or unsure of your future, this means you show no faith and you have not believed yet. Faith allows you to embrace what Jesus did for you on the cross. Faith reminds you that your sins are forgiven so you don’t have to be worried or be haunted by your past because your past is over. The mind is renewed by studying the Word and by acting on it. The Word has taught us the value and the authority of the name Jesus and it takes the place of the unseen Christ. The Word of God is Spirit and creates material things proving that the Spirit is greater than material. The Word of God living in you must become a part of you by meditation because meditation in the Word is a visit with Him. So, examine your daily life, you will find out how much faith you have, in your business, career and marital life.
“So Jesus answered and said to them, ‘Assuredly, I say to you, if you have faith and do not doubt, you will not only do what was done to the fig tree, but also if you say to this mountain, ‘Be removed and be cast into the sea,’ it will be done’.” (Matthew 21:21)

ALIVE IN CHRIST JESUS Week 21 Devotion



Our Lord Jesus Christ stressed the foolishness in worrying ourselves about tomorrow for tomorrow has got enough troubles and worries of its own to contend with. It is foolish, He says, to add to the troubles each day brings (Matthew 6:34). Today’s trouble is enough for today. God is aware of our challenges and prepares us for each day’s challenges. There is no provision for carryover. In other words, we should live each day as if it were our last and then cast the burden of tomorrow on God. Only then can we be dead to what our situations say and be alive in Christ Jesus. Then, we would be able to use the present supplies for the present circumstance and let next be. Yesterday is history; today is opportunity, while tomorrow is mystery. Let us leave tomorrow’s troubles for the One who bore our troubles on the Cross.

AT HOME IN THE WORD OF GOD – Devotion Week 20



The Bible is given to us in the first place, simply to invite us to make ourselves at home in the world of God and become more familiar with the way God speaks and the way in which we answer Him with our lives. You can read, think and pray all day but unless you live in God’s Word as well, you miss the point. Maybe God has challenged you – tell Him how you feel. But always remember that what God asks, He asks for good. He is loving and merciful, not manipulative and harsh. Take the time to read the Bible with devotion. Here, you meet God face to face. Hebrews 12:10 – “But God disciplines us for our good, in order that we may share in his holiness.”
