OUR DAILY FAVOR 12/31/2017 BY APOSTLE NAOMl (The APOSTLE of FAVOR).
Topic: Understanding the Power of Unity.
Like the popular antithetical aphorism that says, “United we Stand, Divided we Fall”! This goes a thousand mile to affirm Jesus’ statement in Matthew 12:25 “But Jesus knew their thoughts, and said to them: Every kingdom divided against itself is brought to desolation, and every city or house divided against itself will not stand”.
Unity is that strong force that advances men to greatness. The more you are united, the greater you achieve and accomplish common goal or purpose. That is why it is extremely important for believers to be united because; the more united we are, the more we become firm and unshakable. The more divided we are, the chances the Devil to sift us as wheat.
Jesus’ argument to the Pharisees was logical: a kingdom that is at cross-purpose with itself will tear itself apart. Jesus was obviously casting demons out of people. If Jesus was in league with Satan, or if Satan was somehow working through Jesus, it is unlikely that exorcisms would be a priority because, why would Satan cast himself out? Satan has more practical wisdom than to allow his demonic underlings to group themselves into warring factions. Please stay tuned for part 2.
Prayer: Lord, I receive favor to understand the power of unity in Jesus mighty name. Amen! Receive and please share. Blessings.
OUR DAILY FAVOR 12/30/2017 BY APOSTLE NAOMI (The APOSTLE of FAVOR).
Topic: YOU DON’T NEED EXCESS LUGGAGE
The Psalmist made a remarkable statement, “Blessed (happy, fortunate, prosperous, and enviable) is the man who walks and lives not in the counsel of the ungodly (following their advise, their plans and purposes), nor stands in the path where sinners walk, nor sits down (to relax and rest) where the scornful (and the mockers gather)” Psalm 1:1
Those who you closely associate with can either increase or decrease you in destiny. The best people who you can walk with as a believer are those who are in the same household of faith. Paul by the Spirit made a profound statement on this regard saying, “do not be unequally yoked with the unbelievers”. Any relationship that is not increasing you, indirectly it is decreasing you. At the route of any high flyer in the world and scripture is a function of godly association. Those who cannot add value to your life are not supposed to be part of your life. If they are not part of the process, they should not be part of the progress. As a matter of fact, one has to choose meticulously those whom you allow into your space. A friend can either make or break you. Any relationship that is parasitic should be terminated if not, it will soon terminate your life.
My beloved, relationship is not a function of family background, business associates, church members, classmates or peers. You don’t choose association by the above factors. Look out for people who are in possession of that which you don’t have and learn from their success experience.
Prayer: Lord, I receive favor to associate with the right people for me in Jesus mighty name. Amen! Receive and please share. Blessings.
OUR DAILY FAVOR 12/29/2017 BY APOSTLE NAOMI (The APOSTLE of FAVOR)
TOPIC: YOU ARE NOT A PRODUCT OF MEN’S OPINION
Paul by the Spirit made a profound statement to the Galatians: “Do not be deceived; God is not mocked whatever a man sows that is what he will reap”.My beloved, you are not a product of what men say. There are two things that stand in a believer’s life: what God says and what you say about yourself. The scripture recorded something very striking in St. Luke gospel chapter 4. Jesus discovered what was written concerning Him. “The Spirit of God is upon me, He has anointed me to preach the gospel to the poor, heal the broken hearted, raise the dead, and heal the sick. And to proclaim the accepted and acceptable year of the Lord”. Glorious things are spoken of believers.
You have got to accept What the Word says about you. The word of God has the capacity to make a man and give him a future he hopes for. The word says, “For I know the thought I have towards you, thought of good and not evil, to give you a future you hope for”. What men say aremere opinion! As a Matter of fact, every one of us has freedom of expression. All men are entitled to their own opinion. My point of emphasis here is this: don’t allow the opinion of men to determine your destiny. That is why I am not bordered about criticism. The more you are criticized the faster you are advertised. Jesus made a profound statement in Matthew 5, He said, “Blessed and fortunate are you when you are persecuted for righteousness sake because, the crown of glory awaits such a person”.
There is a certain realm you attain in destiny, you become a topic. Mind you, you cannot be on TOP and not become a TOPIC. Topics are centre of discourse! Criticism is part of the calling. The beautiful thing is this: I am an over comer. So, don’t allow mere opinion to shaping and mould your destiny on the negative. The greater One lives inside of you; His name is JESUS. You may be facing challenges right now, one thing is sure; today’s challenges are the raw materials God uses to process your glorious future. Hallelujah
Prayer : Lord, I receive favor to be a PRODUCT of ONLY GOD’S OPINION in the mighty name of JESUS Christ. Amen! Receive and please share. Blessings.
OUR DAILY FAVOR 12/28/2017 BY APOSTLE NAOMI (The APOSTLE of FAVOR)
Topic: DEPEND ON THE ANOINTING. Part 2
The earlier you understand the workings of the anointing, the better you flow in an endless realm of possibilities. And it is your knowledge about the anointing that produces result. The deeper the knowledge the increase the result you get. The shallow the knowledge the weaker the result you get. Your result is directly proportional to your knowledge. A man’s result is a function of his knowledge. (Note: I am not talking about educational achievements) Get to know the personality of the Holy Spirit, it will do you good.
Jesus said, “But when He, the Spirit of Truth (the truth-giving Spirit) comes, He will guide you into all the Truth. For He will not speak His own message; but He will tell whatever He hears from the Father; He will give the message that has been given to Him. And He will announce and declare to you the things that are to come (that will happen in the future)”.
The anointing makes you to live your life with sense of direction. Nothing takes any child of God that possesses the anointing unawares. Interestingly, every genuine born again child of God filled with the Holy Spirit has got to possess the anointing. This is the fact!
Prayer : Lord, I receive favor to INCREASE & PRESERVE the ANOINTING in the mighty name of JESUS Christ. Amen! Receive and please share. Blessings.
OUR DAILY FAVOR 12/27/2017 BY APOSTLE NAOMI (The APOSTLE of FAVOR)
Topic: DEPEND ON THE ANOINTING
Joel 2:28 tells us: “And afterward I will pour out my Spirit upon all flesh, and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, your old men shall dream, our young men shall see visions”.
The anointing is the Holy Ghost in action in the lives of the believers. Life in its entirety has got to be miserable for any child of God who has not the Holy Spirit dwelling in him or her. The anointing is what makes the difference. Jesus speaking to His disciples, “However, I am telling you nothing but the truth when I say it is profitable (good, expedient, advantageous) for you that I go away. Because if I do not go away, the comforter (Counselor, Helper, Advocate, Intercessor, Strengthener, Standby) will not come to you into close fellowship with you); but If I go away, I will send Him to you.
My beloved, the anointing has the above function in the lives of the believers. The anointing is there to counsel you, help you, advocate you, intercede for you, strengthen you and stand by you. What a wholesome duty, Hallelujah!
Prayer : Lord, I receive favor to DEPEND ON THE ANOINTING everyday of my life in the mighty name of JESUS Christ. Amen! Receive and please share. Blessings.

Topic: BE REFRESHED BY THE WORD- part 2
As believers, we need the Word of God for our spiritual health and knowledge of God’s will. We are being shaped into the image of Christ by the Word. God uses his Word to equip us or complete us for every good work (2 Tim 3:17).
The Word comforts us, at other times it instructs us, and often it rebukes and corrects us. God disciplines those whom He loves in order to make them look like Christ, and His instrument for shaping us is His Word.
The Psalmist said, the word is a lamp unto my feet and light unto my path. His Word have I hidden in my heart that I may not sin against you. All of these encounters with God’s word are good for us. The Word is the only sufficiency for believers. Matthew 4:4 says, man shall not live and be upheld and sustained by bread alone, but by every word that comes forth from the mouth of God.
So, as believers, we must sincerely and daily make our abode in God’s word, for with out it, we can produce no spiritual fruit. We can develop the discipline of meditating on the Word. Surely Donald Whitney is correct in saying, “No spiritual discipline is more important than the intake of God’s word.
God instructed Joshua saying, “This book of the law shall not depart out of your mouth, but you shall meditate on it day and night, that you may observe and do all that is written in it. For then you shall make your way prosperous, and then you shall deal wisely and have good success.
Prayer : Lord, I receive favor to keep your word in my heart in the mighty name of JESUS Christ. Amen! Receive and share. Blessings.

Topic: BE REFRESHED BY THE WORD
Jesus made a profound statement in John 6:63, “it is the Spirit that quickens; the flesh profits nothing; the Words that I speak unto you, they are spirit and they are life”.
In the beginning (before all time) was the Word (Christ) and the Word was with God, and the Word was God Himself. The Word is the power house of God. It was through the Word that world came into existence. Hebrew 11:3 says, “By faith we understand that the worlds were framed by the Word of God, so that what we see was not made out of things which are visible”.
My beloved, it is the Word that makes the difference in the lives of men. The difference between the believers and the unbelievers is the word. How much greatness you have is a function of how much of the Word you have assimilated over time.
Paul by the Spirit made a profound statement, “Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly” Col3:16. That is, you have got to live in the Word like it is your spiritual abode. Abide in it! Let it saturate your soul. Let it affect you through and through.
BABY JESUS IS THE WORD! Merry Christmas!!
Prayer : Lord, l receive favor for refreshment by the WORD everyday of my life in the mighty name of JESUS Christ. Amen! Receive and please share. Blessings.
OUR DAILY FAVOR 12/24/2017 BY APOSTLE NAOMI (The APOSTLE of FAVOR)
Topic : LET GO AND LET GOD
Eph. 4: 21- 25.
The Christian life is one that lets go and lets God. So much indeed, there are to let go, so we can let Christ into our lives. Our texts recognize them as things to ‘put off ‘and things to ‘put on ‘ .We must first put off before we can put on, otherwise there will be no room for the things to put on. “….But now yeah also put off all these : anger, wrath, malice, blasphemy, filthy communication, out of your mouth….And have put on the new man…. “The old man in us must be expelled so that the new man can assume the right place in us. We must let go, Satan sin and selfishness, and let God and His Christ in. We must let go, the world and wickedness; and let God’s word and wisdom into our lives. How glorious! Christians are people who let Christ in (Rev. 3 : 20), and when Christ takes over any life- He will not leave you the way He met you. There must be something remarkable and glorious in that life. He transforms him into a new creature and enriches such to triumph and excel everywhere in the neighborhood, office or business place. We must let go, the arms of flesh, self vengeance and human might- they will fail us; but let in spiritual armours for every battle and conquest. We must not let go, what or who we ought to let in; and let in, what or who we ought to let go. God however allows and expects us to take perfect decision and we shall not regret.
Prayer : Lord, I receive favor to let go, all that need go in my life, and let God in, through the mighty name of JESUS Christ. Amen! Receive and share. Blessings.
OUR DAILY FAVOR 12/23/2017 BY Apostle NAOMI (The Apostle of Favor )
Topic : YOUR GREATEST ADVOCATE
Literally speaking, the Advocates are 1. ardent supporters of public or private opinions, with legal backing. 2 .Advisory bodies or person who offer professional advice in areas as at where and when needed. 3. Above all, Advocates are legal experts who defend people, corporate bodies or even Nations in the Law court. In Nigeria for instance, these legal authorities that operate in the highest (supreme) courts, especially are called SAN_ Senior Advocates of Nigeria. How they can play their legal might and influence judgments in Human law courts! They could be great and greater figures in our society, but beyond the earth here, their might and activities cease. They can’t even stand for themselves, let alone defend and acquit another in the court of Heaven.
Meanwhile, the greatest Advocate of man is JESUS. Jn 5: 21-23,27 ” For the Father judgeth no man, but hath committed all judgment unto the Son….And hath given him authority to execute judgment also… ” Jesus is the judge of the whole world; of every man that ever existed since the world began. He is the Greatest Advocate and Judge because He’s the righteous Judge-no miscarriage of justice. There is no unholy influence and /or partiality with Him. Praise God! So, we need make our ways right with Him, fit into Him while His condemnation will pass over us. Believers also shall support Him in His judgement. Matt. 19 : 28, Luk. 22: 29,30.
Prayer : Lord, I receive favor to benefit from Your justice and eternal joy, and not condemnation, in JESUS mighty name. Amen ! Receive and please share. Blessings.
OUR DAILY FAVOR 12/22/2017 BY APOSTLE NAOMI (The Apostle of FAVOR)
Topic : HIS GRACE IS SUFFICIENT
“For the grace of God that bringeth Salvation hath appeared to all men…. “Tit. 2 : 11_15 ” “For the law was given by Moses, but grace and truth came by Jesus Christ “. The grace of God is simply the entire goodness of God in all ramifications lavished on mankind, in which Christ Jesus had to play the scapegoat to pay the price of our redemption at the cross. Grace is God’s unmerited favor, mercy and gifts of God to man, after the fall: to know, love, serve Him and live for Him all the days of our lives until we walk into His bosom in glory. In fact somebody sums up the GRACE as ” God’s Riches, Redemption, Reconciliation, Righteousness and Revelation At Christ’s Expense “. God would not even spare His only begotten Son for man’s destiny. He gave Him for man and gave man all things by Christ and nothing God cannot give us through Him. The Scripture says that the GRACE has appeared to all men _ the Jews and Gentiles, the rich or poor, the free or bond. No one has excuse to escape profiting from the grace. God’s grace wroughts salvation, favor, Victory, progress and prosperity in our lives. It also helps us to triumph over trials and temptations. By His Grace, we excel in every life endeavor; but rejecting the grace is suicidal with eternal consequence. His grace is sufficient to all as it was for Paul the apostle. 2 Cor. 12: 9 .
Prayer : Lord, l receive favor to walk in Your grace and glory all the days of my life in Jesus mighty name. Amen!
OUR DAILY FAVOR 12/21/2017 BY APOSTLE NAOMI (THE APOSTLE OF FAVOR)
Topic : THE SPIRIT OF A WORSHIPPER.
Scripture says, “A time will come, however, indeed it is already here, when the true (genuine) worshippers will worship the father in spirit and in truth (reality); for the father is seeking just such people as these as His worshippers” John 4:23.
Scripture also tells us: God is a Spirit and those who worship Him must worship in spirit and in truth. Worship is a spiritual service to God. Our duty as believer is to offer spiritual services to the highest God. And one of the spiritual services is our worship unto Him. Most people have really been confused by this whole concept. However, worship is not the act of closing your eyes, lifting your hands to heaven and singing calmly. This is not what worship entails even though it is part of it. It is beyond singing calmly.
Worship involves the entire being. Paul by the Spirit made a profound statement in Romans 12:1: I appeal to you therefore, brethren, and beg of you in view of the mercies of God, to make a decisive dedication of your bodies (presenting all your members and faculties) as a living sacrifice, holy (devoted, consecrated) and well pleasing to God, which is your reasonable (rational, intelligent)
service and spiritual worship. Not until you become pleasing to God, your worship cannot be acceptable by Him. A sure way to please God is to offer your services in faith.
Worship is done in faith. Our spiritual services are done in faith for them to be acceptable before God. “For without faith it is impossible to please and be satisfactory to Him”. Any service done outside the view of faith cannot access God. It is an effort in futility. In closing, every genuine worshipper is a carrier of God’s divine presence. I dare you to be a sincere worshipper.
PRAYER: I receive FAVOR to be a SINCERE WORSHIPPER of the most high God in JESUS mighty name. Amen!
OUR DAILY FAVOR 12/20/2017 BY APOSTLE NAOMI (THE APOSTLE OF FAVOR).
Topic : HAVE A QUIET TIME
The Bible tells us about the character of a man called Isaac: “And Isaac went out to meditate and bow down in prayer in the open field in the evening; and he looked up and saw that, behold, the camels were coming” Gen 24:63. Your creative prowess is activated the more in your quite time. You gain more consecration during your quite time. This is one of the problems militating against the believers of today’s generation; they don’t have time to meditate. Even while God decides to speak, we are too busy to listen and noisy to hear.
Meditation is one of the recipes for success. Scripture says, “The book of the law shall not depart out of your mouth, but you shall meditate on it day and night, that you may observe and do according to all that is written in it. For then you shall make your way prosperous, and then you shall deal wisely and have good success” Josh 1:8. Meditation is increased during your quite time. During meditation, success is gradually built up in you. You cannot be greater than your thought. A man is a function of his thought system. Scripture says, “As a man thinks in his heart, so he is”.
The Psalmist said, “He who dwells in the secret place of the most high shall remain stable and fixed under the shadow of the Almighty”. The secret place is the place of prayers-that is your quite time with the Almighty.
There are whole lots of benefits when you have a quite time with the Lord: destinies are settled, divine information is dispensed to your heart, and creativity is activated. This was the character of Jesus during His earthly ministry; no wonder he was daily renewed and refreshed for the gospel. Have a quiet time because, it will profit you a lot.
PRAYER: I receive FAVOR to have a quiet time with God in JESUS mighty name. Amen! Receive and please share. You are favored by His grace. Blessings.
OUR DAILY FAVOR 12/19/2017 BY APOSTLE NAOMI (THE APOSTLE OF FAVOR)
Topic : YOU ARE A SON, NOT A SERVANT! Part 3.
A few believers have this knowledge of the sonship they have been freely given in Christ. Hence they are ignorance of their redemptive benefits. Listen, salvation is a free gift which comes with different packages; prosperity, health, freedom, greatness etc are all contained in it. Only few have been able to access all they have in Christ. Not until you are informed, you cannot be transformed to perform. You need godly information for a complete transformation. Scripture says, “You are gods, but because you know not, you shall die like mere men. He that is honor and yet he does not know that he is honored, he is worse than the beast of the field that perishes”. In case you don’t know the stuff you are made off, Paul by the Spirit tells us in Ephesians 1:3, “May praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ (the messiah) who has blessed us in Christ with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly realm”. Heaven on earth!
Remember, only sons have access to these blessings. I sincerely congratulate you, who are born again. Scripture says, “If any person is in grafted in Christ (the messiah) he is a new creation altogether; the old (previous moral and spiritual condition) has passed away. Behold the fresh and new has come”. You are a new being, a new set of specie that plays and operates by different sets of rule. Therefore, act like the son you are and not a servant.
PRAYER: I receive FAVOR for physical manifestation of every spiritual blessing in JESUS mighty name. Amen!
OUR DAILY FAVOR 12/18/2017 BY APOSTLE NAOMI (THE APOSTLE OF FAVOR)
Topic : YOU ARE A SON, NOT A SERVANT! Part 2.
Faith grants you access into the realm of sonship. Hebrew 11:6 declares, “But without faith it is impossible to please and be satisfactory to Him. For whosoever would come near to God must necessarily believe that God exists and that He is the rewarder of those who earnestly and diligently seek Him out”. For you are all sons of God through faith in Christ Jesus. For all of you who were baptized into Christ have clothed yourselves with Christ.
The fact that God created the whole universe does not mean He is Lord to all. Listen, He is the Creator to all, and a Lord to few. The quickest means to recognizing the lordship of God is by accepting the son Jesus. Jesus said to Thomas, “I am the Way and the Truth and the Life; no man comes to the Father except through me”.
Beloved, the moment you accept the personality of Jesus, you have yourself metamorphosed from the level of servant hood to the realm of sonship. Believers are no longer servants in the kingdom but, sons. For as many who are led by God are the sons of God. The Spirit Himself testifies with our spirit that we are children of God. Please stay tuned for the conclusion.
PRAYER: I receive FAVOR for Faith that grants access into the realm of sonship in JESUS mighty name. Amen!
OUR DAILY FAVOR 12/17/2017 BY APOSTLE NAOMI (THE APOSTLE OF FAVOR)
Topic : Understanding the Power of God’s Love.
It is understanding that makes a man outstanding. Therefore, understanding the power of HIS love sets you apart for uncommon Favor.Observe this carefully, “Jacob have I loved, Esau have I hated!” Observe, the later days of Jacob were that of beauty and splendor because of the singular covenant of love.
My point of emphasis is this: when you understand the power of God’s Love, it opens you up to the supernatural and connects you to uncommon manifestation. Love is the fundamental nature of God. Our sole redemption was built on the basis of love. God’s love towards us is graphically depicted in the sacrifice He made on our behalf. “Greater love has no man than this, that he lays his life for his friends” John 15:13. If you want to see the love of God, look to the cross. For God did not send His son Jesus to condemn the world but, through Him the world might be saved. Beloved, let your actions be motivated by God’s love. Love is not selfish. Love endures long, and it is patient and kind. The gifts of the Spirit will cease but, love never dies, wears off, or fades away. The character of love is action. All other fruit of the Spirit in rooted in God’s unfailing love. You are LOVED by GOD more than you know. Blessings.
PRAYER: I receive FAVOR to TRULY UNDERSTAND GOD’S LOVE FOR ME EVERYDAY OF MY LIFE in JESUS mighty name. Amen!
OUR DAILY FAVOR 12/16/2017 BY APOSTLE NAOMI (THE APOSTLE OF FAVOR)
Topic : YOU ARE A SON, NOT A SERVANT!
The difference between a son and a servant is a function of their authority, right or power to command obedience. Sons command but, servants beg. Sons have access to their parent’s inheritance; servants only manage their master’s possessions.
However, there are many Christians who are servants of God, but do not live as sons. They serve Jesus and strive to follow His word, but they do not enjoy a close relationship with Him. Jesus is not satisfied if we only have a servant relationship with Him. Paul by the Spirit made a profound statement on this regard; “Now I say, as long as the heir is a child, he does not differ at all from a slave although he is owner of everything, but he is under guardians and managers until the date set by the father”. As believers you have got to grow and increase in the knowledge of God daily. It is knowledge that terminates ignorance.Only true knowledge can deliver to you your inheritance in Christ. Scripture says, “As many that received HIM, to them He gave power, right, authority and privilege to become the sons of God. That is, to those who believe in (adhere to, trust in, and rely on) His name- who owe their birth neither to bloods nor to the will of the flesh nor to the will of man, but to God. (They are born of God) John 1:12-13.
Your sonship is a function of your faith in the finish work of Christ. “For with the heart a person believes (adhere to, trust in, and relies on Christ) and so is justified (declared righteous, acceptable to God), and with the mouth he confesses (declares openly and speaks out freely his faith) and confirms his salvation.
PRAYER: I receive FAVOR to know my place as child of the most high God in JESUS mighty name. Amen
Action they say speaks louder than voices. This is a paradoxical affirmation. Talking only, will not help you achieve maximum success. This is the gospel! You have got to learn beyond talking, and start acting your words to achieving great success. We live in a world where people are not interested in what you can say but, what you can do. Action is the difference between those who are succeeding and those who are dreaming of success. Apostle James by the Spirit made a profound statement on this regard, “Be ye Doer of the Word and not hearers only” James 1:22. You must be a Doer and a worker of the Word.This is what success entails- Action. Those who failed in the past were those who refused to act. Success is not cheap; it is actively and constructively planned. The route of any greatness is action. Pro-active people are outstanding people. This is the character God had when creating the world. He ended up creating a perfect universe in six days Gen 1 and 2. Laziness, idleness and other unprofitable ventures will keep one in perpetual stagnation but, acting on the right words will keep you in maximum greatness. The book of Wisdom asked a thought provoking question, “Do you see a man who is diligent in his work and sits before ordinary men?” Of course not, such man will sit and dine with great men. Diligence and commitment to set goals will help you enhance efficiency. God will only bless the works of your hands and not the words of your mouth. Nothing works until you work it out. God only moves when you make move. One of the secrets of greatness is enthusiasm. Hard work pays. Work hard, God will in turn crown your efforts with favor. Like the popular aphorism that says, “The Idle Mind is the devil’s workshop”. You know what this means? The devil has got to occupy, engage and rubbish any mind that is not positively engaged. Therefore, ACT YOUR TALK!
PRAYER: I receive FAVOR to break a DOER not just a TALKER in JESUS mighty name. Amen!

Topic : UNDERSTANDING THE POWER OF INFORMATION!
As it is often said, information is power. You cannot prosper beyond the limit of the information you have at your disposal. It is information that produces wisdom; while knowledge is derived when rightly applied. Not until you are informed, you cannot be transformed to perform. Information is what illuminates a man’s heart with light. Information brings about light; light of advancement. Information advances a man to his next level. That is why the scripture made this great admonition, “study to show yourself approved; a work man that needs not to be ashamed but Rightly dividing the word of truth”. Information is what keeps a man going. Any positive information you act on has the capacity to push you to the next level. The best thing you can ever acquire is not cars or houses but, Knowledge. Knowledge is that applied Information that causes a man to experience a turn around. Any positive information you act on produces knowledge in you. A man of knowledge can never be tossed to and fro by every wind of doctrines. Over the years, I have discovered that the greatest enemy of man is ignorance. And the simple cure for it is knowledge. The strength of the oppressor is the ignorance of the oppressed. Nothing keeps a man on perpetual stagnation like ignorance. It is man’s ignorance the devil sometimes act on to manipulate his destiny. The devil has been long time defeated. However, He knows too well that only few know that He has long ago been defeated. Scripture says, “we are sited with Christ in the heavenly places far above all principalities”. Scripture also says, “we have been given power and authority to step on scorpions, snakes, adder and young lion; by no means shall they hurt us. The above animals are symbolic representation of the devil. The scripture is making you know that the devil has no such power over a child of God who knows who he/she is. Stay tuned for part 2.
PRAYER: I receive FAVOR to understand the power of information in JESUS mighty name. Amen! Receive & please share.

Topic: BE A RECORD BREAKER
Record breakers are people who make unprecedented breakthroughs or improvement on the existing record to a new height or discovery. They work on present records or insights, because they are not satisfied to just go home and rest, Never saying there is nothing more to be done or added. Of course no exploits or discovery is new under the sun. (Ecc. 1:9). The record breakers do not believe that whatever on ground, is the optimal. Knowledge is limitless; as far as they are concerned. All christian record breakers, start by stepping out of the crowd or unserious members of the congregation to embrace Christ, not considering who mocks. Salvation is personal after all. Job. 31: 32,33. “IF l covered my transgressions as Adam, by hiding mine iniquity in my bosom : Did I fear a great multitude or did the contempt of families terrify me, that l kept silence, and went not of the door?”
Henceforth, RECORD BREAKERS walk with God to enter into greater grace and glory. They explore spiritual and secular records, to make divinely assisted impact. God is their partner. By their faith walk, they make new records in their chosen career. Young David broke the record by killing Goliath that others dared not. Brethren, receive to strive on and you will make it, as well as break records.
PRAYER: l receive FAVOR to break records and excel like David, in JESUS mighty name. Amen! Receive & please share.

Topic : BE A PACE SETTER
Pace setters brainstorm a lot and are creative in their pursuits as they keep researching on how better to do the same thing they have been doing. They are not lazy , but are people who are already in the system. While practicing on the job, they keep asking questions, and undertake to try out new realms, they inititiate something new and remarkable, which might even form a basis on what others may want to work on subsequently. Pace setters strive to be on top and become an Eye or Mirror through which others can see further. Their research or exploits benefit the masses. Pace setters in the kingdom of God are born again believers who also see themselves as “God’s packages “that must be unfolding each passing day, until they get to the top. They set up, step up and stay on top. God helping them, they are God’s own holy Generals who stay on top the Holy Mountain, undefiled.
2 Kings 1 :9_13; 1John 3:8_10. These God’s Generals, stir up the gift of God in them, and not to allow it dormant or fallow. 1Tim.4:14,15; 2 Tim. 1:6. These God’s own holy pace setters excel in Christian religion, economics, scientific, arts and crafts or artisanship etc, God helping them, until they click up and stay up. Praise God!
Prayer: l am born to excel and set the pace, in my endeavors as You have ordained me, Your kingdom citizen. I receive FAVOR to be what GOD wants me to be, in JESUS mighty name. Amen!

Topic : INSTRUCTION DETERMINES ACCELERATION
How far you can go is a function of how much instruction you have carried out over time. Listen, the instruction you cannot obey is the destiny you cannot manifest. At the route of any highflyer in the scripture and world today is instruction. Those who obeyed instruction escaped destruction and arrived in their destination. While those who neglected certain spiritual instruction ended up in destruction.
Acceleration and deceleration is a product of instruction. Proverbs 1:7 said, “The fear of the Lord is the beginning of knowledge; but fools despise wisdom and instruction”. Often times, the word of GOD comes to us as spiritual instructions. Any form of resistance or disobedience to certain instruction is what God refers to as “witchcraft”. The scripture says, “For Rebellion is as the sin of witchcraft, and stubbornness is as iniquity and Idolatry….. (1 Sam 15:23).
King Saul disobeyed divine instruction and ended up in destruction. Abraham carried out instruction and was elevated. Isaiah 1:19-20 said, “If ye be willing and obedient, you shall eat the good of the land, but if you refused and rebel, you shall be devoured by the sword for the mouth of the LORD has spoken it.” It is important that you follow God’s word and His instruction to the letter. Do things HIS way, and you will always be a success. Saul lost the kingship over Israel forever, by choosing his own way and harkening to the voice of the people against God’s specific instruction. Be wise, even when God’s instructions are contrary to your human reasoning; be like Peter who acted foolishly. When the Lord Jesus asked Peter to cast his net into the sea after a fruitless fishing expedition (Luke 5), even though the instruction was contrary to Peter’s reasoning, he obeyed and got a miracle for it.
In closing, God’s instructions may come to you in the most unexpected way, follow them because, therein lies your promotion. Remember, THE INSTRUCTION YOU CANNOT OBEY IS THE DESTINY YOU CANNOT MANIFEST!
I receive FAVOR to OBEY GOD’S INSTRUCTIONS in Jesus mighty name. Amen. You are FAVORED by God’s Grace. Stay focused. Receive & please don’t forget to share.

Topic: RENT YOUR HEART, NOT YOUR GARMENT!
During the course of my research, I discovered the normal norm been practiced by the Old Testament folks in bid to feeling remorse about their wrong deeds. Anytime they face judgmental consequences, they rent their clothes, wear sack cloth and ashes. However, in this era, God does not want. You to rent your clothes any more but, rent your heart. Psalm 51:17 says, “My sacrifice, O God, is a broken spirit; a broken and contrite HEART you, God, Will not despise”. David wrote this Psalm as an agonized cry to God for forgiveness. However, it takes absolute humility to have a broken heart; this David demonstrated. He preferred to rent his heart rather than renting his clothes. At the route of any genuine repentance is a broken heart. The only path way to genuine repentance is a broken heart and a humble spirit. External religious activity cannot replace internal, heartfelt contrition (1 Sam 16:7). Apostle Paul by the Spirit admonished us with these words, that we may come boldly unto the throne of grace where we can obtain mercy in times of need. Anytime we feel that we wrong the Most High God, we should not be afraid to come to Him for mercy. He is a loving Father who is faithful and just to forgive all
our sins. it is fear that has kept us back from accessing our redemptive rights in Christ. Scripture says, we were not given the Spirit of fear, but of excellence, boldness, and sound mind. You have got to have a full understanding of these as this will make you to enjoy the benefits of salvation.
Prayer: I receive FAVOR to RENT MY HEART in Jesus mighty name. Amen. You are FAVORED by God’s Grace. Stay focused. Receive & please don’t forget to share.

Topic : UNDERSTANDING THE POWER OF DIVINE TIMING (concluding episode)
Time management is the key to success. It allows you to take control of your life rather than following the flow of others.
God the creator was fair enough to have given everybody a common factor which is Time. Both the rich and the poor have the same time, the educated and the uneducated have the same. However, it is your proper management of time that sets you on the right track for success. You can accomplish more with less effort when you learn to take control of your time. You can as well improve your ability to focus on the right goals. And with increased focus comes enhanced efficiency. Time management opens you up to different life opportunities.
Time is really precious and important for all of us. Therefore we should never waste time. Time is very important in our lives and plays a significant role. Our whole life revolves around time. We should respect the time and also understand the value of time because; time gone is never going to come back. It’s better to follow and respect time instead of regretting afterward. We have all heard the proverb that says, “Time and tide wait for none”, and this is the best-suited proverb as tide does not wait for anyone in the same manner time also does not wait for anyone. Instead, we should make time our opportunity and grab it as it is really precious and important for our lives.
In closing, time is much more valuable than money because, we can earn money in any sphere of our life but we cannot earn the time back which has already been passed away by any means. The flow of time cannot be stopped and therefore we should use our time wisely.
Ephesians 5:15-16 “Look carefully then how you walk, not as unwise but as wise, making the best use of the time, because the days are evil.”
Prayer: I receive FAVOR to manage my time in in Jesus mighty name. Amen. You are FAVORED by God’s Grace. Stay focused. Receive & please don’t forget to share.

Topic : UNDERSTANDING THE POWER OF DIVINE TIMING (EPISODE 4)
Understanding the power of divine timing sets you apart for greater heights. Men who walked with God were men who had understanding of divine timing. Men who have understanding of divine timing usually experience divine manifestation. Apostle Paul by the spirit affirmed this in Ephesians 3:20, “Now unto him that is able to do exceedingly and abundantly, all that we can ever think or imagine according to the power that walks in us”. God’s time is always available when you know how to provoke it. Another means one can provoke divine timing is through the instrumentality of prayer. A man who learns to pray often can always provoke God’s time any moment. Those who pray have access into God’s divine agenda. Prayers open you up for divine manifestation. To experience an effective result, you have got to pray effectively. Elijah was a human being with a nature such as we have with feelings, affections, and a constitution like ours and he prayed earnestly for it not to rain, and no rain fell on the earth for three years and six months (1kings 17:1) then he prayed again and the heavens supplied rain and the land produced its crops as usual (1 kings 18:42-45). Don’t miss the conclusion- divine timing brings opportunities alive.
Prayer: I receive FAVOR to Provoke divine timing through PRAYERS in Jesus mighty name. Amen. You are FAVORED by God’s Grace. Stay focused. Receive & please don’t forget to share.

Topic: UNDERSTANDING THE POWER OF DIVINE TIMING (EPISODE 3)
In the matters of destiny, time is the deciding factor. Scripture declares: “The race is not to the swift nor the battle to the strong, neither is bread to the wise nor riches to men of intelligence and understanding nor favor to men of skill; but Time and Chance happen to them all”. Divine manifestation is a function of divine timing. Like I had said earlier, anytime can be God’s time when you know how to provoke it. God is too big to be regulated by the earthly time and calendar; He steps outside the earthly time to eternity (time without end)!
We have been able to know some factors that provoke divine timing. Such factors as Obedience and Faith.
Another factor that can provoke divine timing for divine manifestation is Sacrifice. The prophet Elisha said to the woman, “At this season when the time comes round, you shall embrace a son”. The woman however conceived and bore a son that season the following year, as Elisha had said to her. Observe the saying of the prophet: this prophetic utterance was triggered off by the woman’s act. It was the woman sacrificial deed that gave way for her miracle. The woman said to her husband”Behold now, I perceive that this is a holy man of God who passes by continually. Let us make a small chamber on the house stop and put there for him a bed, a table, a chair, and a lamp. Then whenever he comes to us, he can go up the outside stairs and rest here”.
Sacrifice hastens God’s time into existence. It was sacrifice that triggered Solomon into divine manifestation (I kings 3).
My dearly beloved, you have got to cultivate this sacrificial attitude that will create an atmosphere for your divine manifestation. He who receives and welcomes and accepts a Prophet because he is a Prophet shall receive a Prophet’s reward, and he who receives and welcome and accepts a righteous man because he is a righteous man shall receive a righteous man’s reward and whoever gives to one of these little ones even a cup of cold water because he is my disciple, surely I declare to you, he shall not lose his reward said Jesus. Dearly beloved, in this season of celebration, lookout for someone to bless.
Prayer: I receive FAVOR to Cultivate a Sacrificial Attitude in Jesus mighty name. Amen You are FAVORED by God’s Grace. Stay focused. Receive & please don’t forget to share.

Topic: UNDERSTANDING THE POWER OF DIVINE TIMING (EPISODE 2).
Time is a very crucial factor in God’s agenda. Even though He is not regulated by the earthly time and calendar, scripture says:“ He made everything beautiful in His own time”. However, you can provoke divine timing for your divine manifestation. Like I said earlier, anytime can be God’s time any moment your faith comes alive in His word. The psalmist prayed a timely prayer saying, “Oh God have mercy on Zion, for the set Time to favor her ye, the set time has come”. This is the man who had an understanding of divine timing.
I had earlier told you, it is obedience to instruction that provokes divine timing, Another dimension provoking divine timing is through the instrumentality of Faith. Hebrew 11:1 made a profound statement, “now faith is….”
Please please listen to this, Faith is never in the past, neither in the future, it is in the present (now). Faith is what triggers divine timing for divine manifestation. Mary’s faith on Jesus did provoked Jesus into action for His first miracle, yet Jesus said my time has not come. My dearly beloved, faith is what provokes divine timing and not tears. We live in a generation of men where everyone murmurs, cries, complain, worries and engage in other unprofitableventures. Listen, nothing profits a man like the man who has faith in God. Whosoever shall say unto this mountain be thou removed and be thou cast into the sea and shall not doubt in his heart, but believe that those things which he says shall come to pass: he shall have whatsoever he says. Therefore I say unto you, what things so ever ye desire, when ye pray, believe that ye receive and ye shall have them. Please listen, anytime your faith comes alive on God’s word, that time becomes God’s time and when Gods time comes, divine manifestation is in view. By divine insight, I discovered that God is often handicap and crippled without your faith. No matter how small it can be like the muster seed, it shall surely move mountains. “For without faith, it is impossible to please God: for he that comes to God must believe that he is and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him”. Observed those who manifested, they all had faith in God. At the route of any genuine manifestation is absolute faith in God. When faith is on ground, divine manifestation is in view. The earnest expectation of the creation waits patiently for the manifestation of the sons of God. “When your faith on God’s word is activated, Divine Timing is provoked, to producing Divine Manifestation”.

Topic: UNDERSTANDING THE POWER OF DIVINE TIMING (episode 1)
Understanding the power of timing sets you on the right track for divine manifestation. Nothing in this life exists outside the realm of time. Even life and death are function of timing. Ecclesiastics 3:1 portray this when it said, “To everything there is a season, and a time for every matter or purpose under heaven”. Over the time, I have received some emotional confrontations from people that say, when will God’s time come? I understood by divine revelation that anytime can be God’s time in as much one can please God in every moment.
God does not function by the earthly time and calendar, He is never regulated by time. God is too big to be controlled by time. You have got to have this understanding of His time. Like I said earlier, anytime is His time. Obedience is what triggers God’s time into existence. Let me quickly refresh your mind with the event that occurred during the marriage at Cana in Galilee. Event got complicated when the wine got exhausted: Mary the mother came to Jesus asking him to provide solution but, the young man (Jesus) reacted on the negative Oh! Mother my time has not yet come! Nevertheless, the mother who knows how to provoke divine timing for divine manifestation; left the disciples with a timely instruction, “Anything he asks you to do, just do”. Really, they returned with a testimony (John 2). My dearly beloved, it is obedience that provokes divine timing; and it is divine timing that triggers divine manifestation. At the route of any divine manifestation is an obeyed instruction. God’s mind for his children is to always experience manifestation in whatever they do. Romans 8:19 says “for the Ernest expectation of the creation wait patiently for the sons of God”. The children of Issachar were those who had an understanding of timing. No wonder they could not be dispossessed of their inheritance. The difference between here and there is the letter ‘T’- Time. Don’t think it is too late with you. You might be currently facing some challenges; I am here to announce to you, it is never too late for God to turn the card around for your favor.
Prayer: I receive FAVOR to understand God’s timing and fulfill my destiny in Jesus mighty name. Amen You are FAVORED by God’s Grace. Stay focused. Receive & please don’t forget to share.

Topic: OVERCOME INFERIORITY COMPLEX
It’s natural that some people may be indisposed to suffer inferiority complex. When people feel they are natural escorts to others in life, that’s inferiority complex. It’s a bad feeling about oneself, he dies inside and acts it out at times. They play the second fiddle in the society. Their other name is Second Class Citizens. They further their problems when they compare themselves with the genius and big people around them. 2 Cor. 10:12 “For we dare not make ourselves of the number, or compare ourselves with some that commend themselves. Those who measure themselves by themselves and comparing themselves among themselves, are not wise. A few reasons many believers are swallowed up in poor self value system includes, poverty, poor family background, joblessness, illiteracy quotient, as well as lack of skill or talent. The truth is that you cannot be taller and shorter than me at the same time. IF you know this, you may not know the other. So the secret of high value of life is contentment. Learn to live within your reach or resources. You also overcome self complex through hard work. Don’t be lazy or a loafer. Be holy and trustworthy. When people entrust cash and care unto your control don’t be careless or unfaithful. Unfaithfulness can block your breakthrough. Avoid envy and jealousy or you contract high blood pressure for nothing.
PRAYER: LORD, help to see and value myself as you have made and value me, so l plunge not into unnecessary inferiority complex in the mighty name of JESUS. Amen!

Topic: SOLVE PROBLEMS CREATIVELY – JESUS DID ALWAYS
IF you don’t resemble your father, it must be your mother. Believers resemble and do like our mentor JESUS CHRIST or you are none of His. Jesus ever confronted every problem with courage; whether it was challenges of the ministry from the Pharisees. There will always be conflicts of life, it’s part of our existence. Without it there may be no stories of victory and triumph.Job.14:1″ Man that is born of a woman is of a few days, and full of trouble “. Job. 5:7 “Yet man is born into trouble, as the sparks fly upward.”See also 2 Cor.8,9. None is exempted; but the problems may vary from person to person. Individuals and corporate bodies have problems. Even Nations have their fair share of economical, political, religious, ideological etc problems, at different times. Personal problems may range from health challenges to martial, material(business), and even ministry challenges, including problems from missionary outreach. What matters is our to them. Problems do not paralyse us, if we apply positive construction to them. They have short life span, we don’t need to cringe. After rain , comes sunshine. Psalm 30. 11 “Thou hast turned for me, my mourning into dancing : thou hast put off my sackcloth, and girdded me with gladness “. Esther 9: 22 “….wad turned unto them from sorrow to joy and from mourning into a good day……” Square up and plough right through, while those problems turn to testimonies.

Topic: BE A POSSIBILITY THINKER – TURN YOUR MOUNTAINS TO GOLDMINE
Possibility thinkers are positive talkers who translate their good thoughts into action. Human limitations are despised and crushed out of their imaginations. They express their positive thoughts about themselves as they seek to actualize their glorious ideas and perceptions into exploit.Possibility thinking is incomplete and baseless without stepping out to explore and exploit. For Christian faithfuls it goes beyond philosophical view points; we step ahead by faith in God to click on. Rom. 14.23 “….for whatsoever is not of faith is sin.”The Christian possibility thinkers see themselves rise from rank and file to the pick of success occasioned by faith and believe in God. Isaiah 45:3 “And l will give thee the treasures in darkness, and hidden rices of secret places….”Gen .21:19″And God opened her eyes and she saw a well of water and she went and filled her bottle with water and gave the lad to drink. “There are innumerable goldmines and success outlets,all around us which we stumble over without knowing until God reveals them and gets us connected. We need lean on Him. Mountains are obstacles that tends to dampen our hearts and discourage our good ambitious. We rather turn them into lucrative business and victory. Note :Everybody may not have equal sound kick-off point or ready sponsors; so we don’t peg our hope on great begging but start and make steady progress.

To live a Life of Favor, you must – UNDERSTAND THE POWER OF A TAILOR OVER THE CLOTH PART 3/ conclusion.
You have got to unleashed them out for a better future. Get this, God is not going to give or do for you what He has already given or done for you. Genesis 1:31 affirmed this, “And God saw everything that He had made, and behold it was very good (suitable, pleasant) and He approved it completely.
In closing, Paul by the Spirit revealed something to us in Ephesians 3:20, “Now to Him who by the action of His power that is at work within us, is able to carry out His purpose and do super abundantly, far over and above all that we dare ask or think (infinitely beyond our highest prayers, desires, thoughts, hopes, or dreams).
So, my dearly beloved, you have got to take full responsibility of your life because, God is waiting for you to act upon what He had already done for us. As the tailor takes full charge of the cloth, you take full charge of your dreams, and make something better out of it. 2 Peter 1:3 says, “According as His divine power hath given unto us all things that pertain unto life and godliness, through the knowledge of him that hath called us to glory and virtue”.
Your knowledge of God and His word is so important. That is your ticket to a life of ever-increasing glory and superabundance.
