“I press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus”. Philippians 3:14 (KJV)
How uncomfortable in the flesh is intercession, in bowing oneself down to pray and utter forth those beseechments to God’s heart that need to come forth, yet how fruitful in the spirit when this role we fulfill.
For many reasons, we may let down our guard and not fully press in as we ought – disappointments of the past of prayers being answered in a different way than expected, those times of pressing in when our prayers feel as though they go no further than the ceiling, the subtle voice of the enemy whispering, “What you are doing is nonsense, nothing will change as a result of prayer.”
So many challenges to accomplishing this one simple, yet powerful act. So the truth is how influential this bowing our flesh before our maker and crying out to Him must be in praying according to the Spirit of God within us and seeking, “Not my will but Yours be done.”
The Collins dictionary defines celebration as a special enjoyable event that people organize because because something pleasant has happened.
Celebration of something is praise and appreciation which is given to it as a result of a job well done or also in honour of a person who has done well.
This month in the ministry of Daughters of Destiny, is a time of celebration for all Daughters of Destiny around the world. It is our time of celebration and we are going all out in appreciation for the goodness of God all year round.
“And out of them shall proceed thanksgiving and the voice of them that make merry: and I will multiply them, and they shall not be few; I will also glorify them, and they shall not be small” Jeremiah 30:19 (KJV)
The year has been filled with so many happenings but in all God has remained faithful and to that we owe Him our appreciation and celebration in a grand style.
As such, we will be having our yearly prophetic celebration service coming up on 13th November 2021. This is a time when we dress gorgeously as a prophetic declaration speaking into a glorious future as we dance in appreciation for all that God has done for us
Should you want to make a prophetic celebration flyer with your photograph kindly send your name attached with a photograph to the office mobile phone number +2348033048311
It is my prayer that Thanksgiving proceeds and never cease from your mouth in this new month and beyond. Amen
Hello Destiny Family, Welcome to October! It is our month of Enlightenment!
This month, God is daring us to trust in Him completely without holding back in any area.
“Enlarge the place of thy tent, and let them stretch forth the curtains of thine habitations: spare not, lengthen thy cords, and strengthen thy stakes;” Isaiah 54:2 (KJV)
Oftentimes, we tend to follow the ways of the world, believing and using the popular phrase “heaven help those who help themselves” and thereby cutting corners with God’s word and instructions for us. Beloved, that’s a lie and deceit of the devil. God can do anything and everything with and through you if only to you dare to trust Him.
“I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me.” Philippians 4:13 (KJV)
I pray for you and I in this month and beyond and decree that God will enlarge our business territories, our careers, our finances, our homes, our spheres of influence for greater exploits, that we may prosper in all good works in Jesus mighty name. We are taking over this month in the name of Jesus. Amen
As we also celebrate Nigerian’s independence, our beloved country we decree the hand of God rules and reigns over Nigeria in Jesus name. Amen. HAPPY NEW MONTH DESTINY FAMILY!!!💃
Welcome to a new month Destiny Family. It is our month of bearing fruits!
“Before she travailed, she brought forth; before her pain came, she was delivered of a man child” Isaiah 66:7
To be bear fruits means
To produce good result
Abudant growth, etc
It is Gods will that His daughters be fruitful. A fruitful woman is a woman with good results in her home, in her family, in her career, in her calling, and most importantly, in the kingdom of God.
The fruitful woman is a profitable woman. She is a woman who adds VALUE, CAPACITY, and GAIN wherever she is. It is a joy to have her around.
Her ideas are PROFITABLE. She improves everyone and everything that comes in contact with her. She is a BENEFICIAL addition anywhere. She is not the one subtracting, dividing, causing commotion like Jezebel or Delilah.
GENESIS 1:11, “Then God said, “Let the earth bring forth grass, the herb that yields seed, and the fruit tree that yields fruit according to its kind, whose seed is in itself, on the earth”; and it was so”
A fruitful woman brings forth her kind, so her DNA is very important. If she is a spirit filled woman, she will bring forth spirit filled children, speak spirit filled words, and have spirit filled relationships, but if she is negative she will produce negative fruits also.
As you go into this new month, it is my prayer that you bear good fruits and muiltiply on all sides.
I decree that this month you will muiltiply and bring in exponential value. Multiply in love, in giving, and in caring. Bring in VALUE beyond numbers. You will project your family name to the world and bear fruits indeed in the name of Jesus, Amen.
Welcome to your month of bearing fruits. Decree “I am bearing fruits in…” mention those areas in the comment section.
Isaiah 43:5 NLT…“Do not be afraid, for I am with you. I will gather you and your children from east and west.”
The lord is saying “do not be afraid”. Again I repeat, “do not be afraid”.
Fear destabilizes. God has not given you the spirit of fear, but of love power and a sound mind. God is saying I am with you. No matter the challenges presented to you, the word of God is saying fear not.
Fear not for I am with you. Knowing God gives you confidence in Him. (Philippians 3:10). Knowing God also makes you an evangelist, as you confidently share your experiences with God.
I will gather you and your children from east and west. When God talks about gathering it means “Consolidation”. Consolidation is to make something stronger or more solid, more effective or coherent. It is a gathering of capacity. Consolidation leads to increase (Proverbs 13:11).
Consolidation leads to a rewarding end. Consistency in life is necessary for anyone who is going to gain the benefit of consolidation. Be consistent in the place where God has called you. God rewards those who diligently seek him.
I prophesy consolidation for reward in your spiritual, financial, physical investment in the name of Jesus. Everything the enemy has stolen in your lives will be restored in Jesus name.
God wants to consolidate you in His Kingdom. Invite Him into our heart today.
Welcome to the month of September 2020. It is our month of BIRTHING GREATER GLORY.
Our scripture Proverbs 28 verse 12a says …. “when righteous men do rejoice there is great glory.”
When righteous men have cause to rejoice, it is because a positive thing has happened. Righteous men do not rejoice over evil but over what is good.
I prophesy that Good things will not cease in our lives in Jesus name.
I prophesy that you will manifest greater glory in your work, marriage e.t.c
Lift up your voice and declare in the name of JESUS:
* I WILL MANIFEST GREATER GLORY IN MY HEALTH.
* I WILL MANIFEST GREATER GLORY IN MY CAREER; ACADEMICS ETC
Isaiah 66: 7 KJV… “Before she travailed, she brought forth; before her pain came, she was delivered of a man child…”
1.Thank God for the new month and the promises it holds for you.
2.Thank God for the grace of conception without which there can be no birthing.
3. Some go into the labour room and come out empty. This month, I will have result, see progress and have evidence in Jesus name.
4. My delivery will be swift in Jesus name.
5.I come against every limitation that wants to delay my manifestation in Jesus name.
6.To birth is to bring forth. Lift up your voice and say, I will bring forth good results speedily in the name of Jesus.
7. My baby will not die in the womb in Jesus name.
8. Spiritual midwives arise – I call forth the spiritual Hebrew women. Exodus 1:16-19 KJV … “16 And he said, When ye do the office of a midwife to the Hebrew women, and see them upon the stools; if it be a son, then ye shall kill him: but if it be a daughter, then she shall live. 17 But the midwives feared God, and did not as the king of Egypt commanded them, but saved the men children alive.18 And the king of Egypt called for the midwives, and said unto them, Why have ye done this thing, and have saved the men children alive? 19 And the midwives said unto Pharaoh, Because the Hebrew women are not as the Egyptian women; for they are lively, and are delivered ere the midwives come in unto them.
9. Critical people in my life, at the point of vulnerability, will not co-operate with the enemy in Jesus name. They will fear God. Verse 17 says but the Midwives feared God.
For you to birth a glorious thing, for you to birth a greater and more glorious thing, signifies improvement and progress.
Many are failing and falling and finding it difficult to repeat or replicate a good thing.
One thing that WILL guarantee that you birth or produce something of greater glory is when you BIRTH by REVELATION.
a) In Genesis 26 v 1 to 4 KJV and 12-13,
“And there was a famine in the land, beside the first famine that was in the days of Abraham. And Isaac went unto Abimelech king of the Philistines unto Gerar.2 And the Lord appeared unto him, and said, Go not down into Egypt; dwell in the land which I shall tell thee of: 3 Sojourn in this land, and I will be with thee, and will bless thee; for unto thee, and unto thy seed, I will give all these countries, and I will perform the oath which I sware unto Abraham thy father; 4 And I will make thy seed to multiply as the stars of heaven, and will give unto thy seed all these countries; and in thy seed shall all the nations of the earth be blessed;
12 Then Isaac sowed in that land, and received in the same year an hundredfold: and the Lord blessed him. 13 And the man waxed great, and went forward, and grew until he became very great:
Isaac wanted to relocate during a famine but by REVELATION he got an instruction not to leave and, based on this word, he sowed in the land despite being a Shepherd (see verse 13)
b) Jacob negotiated his wages by revelation in Genesis 31 verse 10 to 13 KJV
“10 And it came to pass at the time that the cattle conceived, that I lifted up mine eyes, and saw in a dream, and, behold, the rams which leaped upon the cattle were ringstraked, speckled, and grisled. 11 And the angel of God spake unto me in a dream, saying, Jacob: And I said, Here am I. 12 And he said, Lift up now thine eyes, and see, all the rams which leap upon the cattle are ringstraked, speckled, and grisled: for I have seen all that Laban doeth unto thee. 13 I am the God of Bethel, where thou anointedst the pillar, and where thou vowedst a vow unto me: now arise, get thee out from this land, and return unto the land of thy kindred.
Whatever you birth by REVELATION will be for greater glory. The battle does not end as you birth that new thing.
John the revelator on the Island of Patmos was reliving a vision of a woman who just birthed a male child.Revelations 12:13-17, KJV … “13 And when the dragon saw that he was cast unto the earth, he persecuted the woman which brought forth the man child.14 And to the woman were given two wings of a great eagle, that she might fly into the wilderness, into her place, where she is nourished for a time, and times, and half a time, from the face of the serpent.15 And the serpent cast out of his mouth water as a flood after the woman, that he might cause her to be carried away of the flood.16 And the earth helped the woman, and the earth opened her mouth, and swallowed up the flood which the dragon cast out of his mouth. 17 And the dragon was wroth with the woman, and went to make war with the remnant of her seed, which keep the commandments of God, and have the testimony of Jesus Christ…”
2. Prophet Isaiah gave a vision of Zion delivering a male child. Now that the baby is born, now that your vision, destiny, project, baby appears, what is the prophetic insight being given here. Persecution can arise just as you birth a new thing.
a.Every battle after my delivery, breakthrough, new vision be aborted in Jesus name.
b. Lord empower my delivery to withstand the wind of adversity in Jesus name.
c.Every persecution in my life will not break me in Jesus name.
d. Revelations 12:14 KJV … “And to the woman were given two wings of a great eagle, that she might fly into the wilderness, into her place, where she is nourished for a time, and times, and half a time, from the face of the serpent.”….Pray – I receive more divine instruments, divine capacity to escape in Jesus name.
e. Revelations 12:14….I decree divine direction to my prepared place, my portion, my place of destiny in Jesus name.
f.I will not miss my place of divine nourishment in Jesus name,
g.I decree the flood of life will not carry me away, it will not carry away my delivery in Jesus name.
h. Revelation 12:16 “And the earth helped the woman, and the earth opened her mouth, and swallowed up the flood which the dragon cast out of his mouth.” I call forth divine help in Jesus name.
Psalm 27 verse 13 NLT says “Yet I am confident I will see the Lords goodness while I am here in the land of the living.”
Psalm 145 verse 9 says, “The Lord is good to all and His tender mercies are over all His works.”
Psalm 107 verse 1 says… “Oh give thanks to the Lord FOR HE IS GOOD FOR HIS MERCIES ENDURE FOR EVER”.
GOD IS THE DEFINITION OF GOOD . THE GOODNESS OF GOD IS;
THE NATURE OF GOD…Psalm 34 verse 8… “Oh taste and see that the Lord is good”
THE KINDNESS OF GOD
THE GENEROSITY OF GOD
THE LOVE OF GOD
THE GLORY OF GOD…In Exodus 33 v 19 to 20when Moses asked to see the glory of God. GOD CAUSED HIS GOODNESS TO PASS BEFORE HIM and his face was shining.
The goodness of God ENDURES FOREVER.
Psalm 52 v 1b…Is everywhere on earth. Psalm 33 v 5…The earth is full of The goodness of the Lord.
I. God’s goodness defined.
The Bible defines God’s goodness in two ways.
A). One has to do with His character;
B). The other focuses on His actions.
Ps. 119:68 captures both when it says of God: “You are good and You do what is good . . . “ The first half of that verse focuses on that fact that God is by nature good. That is, He is “morally excellent,extraordinarily beautiful, deeply glad, and extravagantly bountiful.” But since this is God we’re talking about, this goodness ascribed to Him is raised to the highest possible levels.
Think about it: God is the original definition of good. He is good in and of Himself. For us, goodness is an added quality. But it comes naturally for Him. God is not just the greatest of beings; He is the Best.
That’s exactly what Jesus meant when He said, “No one is good but One – God.” (Mark 10:18) We call all kinds of things good – “This food is good. He’s a good friend. That was a good outfit.” But all that we call “good” on this earth is tainted and imperfect. God alone is goodness itself.
But how do you see the true character of a person? By his actions. So the second strand of definition for God’s goodness concentrates on what He does. And the Bible is replete with descriptions that point to His kindness, His mercy, His steadfast love, His generosity. God is disposed to give to human beings beyond all deserving, all the time.
Have you ever thought of God as generous toward you? Can you believe that when He looks at you with all your baggage, all your junk, all your hang-ups, He says, “I want to be generous to you. I can’t wait to pour out on you that which will make you happy – not because you deserve it, but because there’s something about Who I am that loves to overflow in extravagant ways upon you.”
The Bible says those are actually God’s thoughts about you. God is for you. He has your back. He is there, plotting to do you good. You are the object of His affection, and because of His divine nature, all that He expresses comes from an expansive, over-whelming, God-sized generosity toward you.
II. How God reveals His goodness
Let me give you three specific channels God uses to broadcast His goodness to us.
A. Natural blessings
This is the lowest level at which He expresses His goodness and the one we tend to overlook or take for granted. But David saw it clearly. He was moved by God to write Ps. 145–a hymn of praise that celebrates God’s goodness expressed in the created order.
In v. 3-4, he shouts out, “Yahweh is great and is highly praised; His greatness is unsearchable. One generation will declare Your works to the next and will proclaim Your mighty acts.” And v. 7-9 describes what the older generation will say to the younger: “They will give a testimony of Your great goodness and will joyfully sing of Your righteousness. The Lord is gracious and compassionate, slow to anger and great in faithful love.” Notice v. 9: “The Lord is good to everyone . . . “
Who is included in the word “everyone”? You are. In case we missed that, he repeats the idea in the next phrase: “His compassion [rests] on all He has made.” That means there’s nowhere in the universe you can go where God won’t be good to you.
Down in v. 15-17, we read more about His goodness: “All eyes look to You, and You give them their food in due time. You open Your hand and satisfy the desire of every living thing. The Lord is righteous in all His ways and gracious in all His acts.” Every relationship, every job, every tree, every taste of food that pleases us, every birdsong, every friend and flower and field are a reminder of His compassion for us. Look in every corner of this world and every part of your day and you will find the overflow of His generosity, if you will only begin to look for it.
B. Kind interventions
Psalm 107 is totally devoted to this theme, and opens with joy: “Give thanks to the Lord, for He is good; His faithful love endures forever. Let the redeemed of the Lord proclaim that He has redeemed them from the hand of the foe . . . “ Then the psalmist describes four different scenarios where God graciously steps in to reveal His goodness. I don’t have time to unfold each one, just touch on it:
God comes to the rescue of people who are frantically searching for something or someone that will satisfy their soul. When they cry out to the Lord, He will deliver them and their soul will find its true home.
God intervenes in the lives of those who have rebelled against the Word of God and suffer for it. When they repent, He delivers them from their distress, breaks the chains of sin that bind them, and turns the night to day.
God intervenes on behalf of His goodness in the lives of foolish people who had given themselves to sin and find its death-bringing results touching their relationships and lives. When they cry to the Lord. He heals them, and reverses the killing effects of sin in their lives.
God rescues those pounded by calamity. When the storms threaten to sink us and we’re at our wit’s end, we can call to Him and see Him command the storms to be still, because He is good.
He’s been there for you, more than you’ll ever know. No matter what situation you’re facing this morning, God is the best Person to take it too. There is no surer source of deliverance or blessing than Him, because He is good all the time.
C. Through God’s Son, Jesus
Colossians 1 reminds us that Jesus “is the image of the invisible God” (v. 15) and that “God was pleased to have all His fullness dwell in Him” (v. 19). Jesus is God’s goodness in the flesh. He demonstrated God’s desire to pour out blessing and help and deliverance on us in three ways;
1. He took the judgment that our sins deserved upon Himself.
Romans 5:8 says, “God proves His own love for us in that while we were still sinners Christ died for us!” God’s extravagance flowed to us in the amazing substitution of His Son in our place on the cross. His death for us is the undisputed picture of unmerited goodness. You don’t deserve it. I don’t deserve it. In fact, we continue to do things that prove we didn’t earn this.
But God is good. His nature drives a desire to do for us what we can’t do for ourselves. So He puts forward His Son on our behalf to take our hell and give all who believe heaven.
2. He includes a thousand other things in the gift of Himself.
Romans 8:32 says this of God: “He did not even spare His own Son, but offered Him up for us all; how will He not also with Him grant us everything?” In other words, God has already shown His goodness toward you in the biggest way possible. All the other little details to help you live a godly life through thick and thin are included in that gift.
3. Jesus unlocks God’s goodness toward us in new ways.
Second Cor. 1:20 tells us that “every one of God’s promises is ‘Yes’ in [Christ].” That means all the good and perfect gifts of God come to us through our relationship with Jesus. If I want to understand and appreciate God’s goodness to me, I can begin and end with Jesus.
III. Respond to God’s goodness.
The goodness of God calls for a response. Let me give you three specific steps we must take to change our lives and begin to fully experience the effects of God’s generosity.
A. Repent of unbelief and ingratitude
Romans 2:4 says, “Or do you despise the riches of His kindness, restraint, and patience, not recognizing that God’s kindness is intended to lead you to repentance?” Paul is saying, “Do you think that all these blessings that visit your days came because you’re just an incredibly nice person who made God’s special list? No, His goodness was meant to lead you to Him.” Going through your life receiving what He has been giving without trusting in Christ is like saying, “God I had all this coming. I deserve this and more. So keep it coming.” We want the gifts, not the Giver. Our ingratitude and greed for what He can do for us while rejecting Him is the heights of sin. And one day, the gravy train will come to an end.
Stop. Look around you. See the hand of the Lord in your life and turn to Him today. Put an end to taking from God and learn to thank Him.
B. Rest in His goodness when adversity comes
We live in a world where bad things happen to good people and good things happen to bad people. Sometimes, our circumstances argue with us about how good God is. Sometimes God’s good plan for us means going through trials and losses and heartache and death.
But hear me: He is there for you. Ps. 31:19-20 says, “How great is Your goodness that You have stored up for those who fear You, and accomplished in the sight of everyone for those who take refuge in You. You hide them in the protection of Your presence; You conceal them in a shelter from the schemes of men, from quarrelsome tongues.” God has great goodness stored up for you. Take your refuge in Him. Rest there. He is up to more than you know, and has hidden help that only comes when you give it up to Him.
C. Step out in faith
When you believe that God is good all the time, it frees you to take ever-increasing steps of faith. In our living room, we have a beautiful print of Jeremiah 29:11 that reminds me of God’s intent toward me and my family: “For I know the plans I have for you” – [this is] the Lord’s declaration – “plans for [your] welfare, not for disaster, to give you a future and a hope.” Believing that cuts you loose from fear about taking risks for Christ’s sake. Psalm 84:11 is fuel to the fire of daring greatly for Him: “For the Lord God is a sun” (He illuminates the path I should take) “and shield” (He protects me); “the Lord gives grace and glory (that’s exaltation for those who follow Him). “He does not withhold the good from those who live with integrity.” You never miss out if you step out with God.
1. Father, I Thank you for your goodness in my life and family
2. Lord I Thank you for your abundant blessings over my family
The man had two sons but they were not alike, the younger one had evil boldness and went ahead to ask for his inheritance.
You can never start something wrong and hope to end right if you don’t repent. Every evil foundation of wealth in our lives must be destroyed. The foundation the younger son got the money was not right and that was why he wasted it.
He went to a far away land where no one knew him or could help him. When people are wrong they always run away and be in hiding. You never run from the presence of God, but people that the devil is leading they want to go far.
The bible said he wasted his substance, that inheritance was his, but he only got it at the wrong time and because of that he wasted it.
God opened his understanding and all of a sudden he came to light, all the while he was working with understanding, he was covered with an evil veil that closed his understandingand the bible said he came to his light.
He shifted from a give me attitude to a make me attitude. A make me attitude will make you humble. If you don’t have that mindset shift or see yourself the way God wants you to see yourself, you may miss opportunities.
Every time you have a make me attitude some things come to your life. First you receive mercy, repentance is the door of mercy.
Every time you come with a make me attitude you get a covering and fresh visions. Humility makes you celebrated
The elder son on the other side was a good and obedient boy, but he had not yet attained the work of perfection in his character. He had his own inheritance, but he was not looking at that. He was judging his brother, complaining to the father.
The spirit of the elder brother can not attack your glory because God is with you.
The power in the word of God is so strong that when you say a word, you release power into that word. In 2020, you will receive the grace to show forth in every area of your life. AMEN!
KEY READING FROM 1 PETER CHAPTER 2 VS 9
For you to be able to show forth, you have to be conscious and accept your identity. You have been chosen by God, to be an instrument of speaking on his behalf, so be ready because you cannot hide from God. Tell your neighbor; be on guard, you are showing forth!
“The way you see someone is the way you treat somebody”. Dress the way you want to be addressed to avoid missing out on opportunities. God has chosen you to show forth so prepare for it and push yourself forward to be able to catch up because He that is pushing you forward is with you and will surely help you.
When God has chosen you, it does not mean that there won’t be storms but no matter the storms, we will always overcome. The bible says “many are the afflictions of the righteous but the Lord will deliver you from them all”.
A woman who wants to show forth, your prayer life must be HOT! Do not be deceived by the weave and dressing because when in the presence of God, there is anointing all over. A woman that must show forth must not be carried away by the world. Whatever God has placed in your hands, do not allow anyone to play with it.
The wisdom that we need to manage our success, we receive it now in Jesus name. Amen.
