Pastor Faith Oyedepo: Saturday August 01, 2015 Daily Devotional – Good conversations


Topic: Good conversations [Saturday August 01, 2015]

“Who is a wise man and endued with knowledge among you? let him shew out of a good conversation his works with meekness of wisdom.”-James 3:13

Quite a number of couples feel they are having a conversation with their spouse, when all they really are doing is giving out commands and/or instructions they believe must be adhered to. When handling an issue, they say “can we talk?” However, in actuality, they mean “just listen.” You may or may not be guilty of this, but it’s very common and is one of the major causes of communication failure in the home.

DCLM Daily Manna, Saturday August 1, 2015 by Pastor Kumuyi – Don’t Forget!


Topic: Don’t Forget! [Saturday 01 August, 2015]

Text: Exodus 16:32-36

Key Verse: “And the children of Israel did eat manna forty years, until they came to a land inhabited; they did eat manna, until they came unto the borders of the land of Canaan” (Exodus 16:35).

The human nature is evil, primed to acts of depravity. This is why it requires a real new birth experience to turn this obstinate nature around. It is a pity that tons of theories and concepts about civilising the human element has always turned out a pipe dream, an excursion into failure.

Pastor Faith Oyedepo: Friday July 31, 2015 Daily Devotional – Treasures of the Heart


Topic: Treasures of the Heart [Friday July 31, 2015]

“But let it be the hidden man of the heart, in that which is not corruptible, even the ornament of a meek and quiet spirit, which is in the sight of God of great price.”-1 Peter 3:4

No matter how large or spherical an egg shell may appear, its true quality is from within. It takes your accessing the inner content of that egg to know how fresh it is. In truth, beauty stems from within and then radiates without. One of the perimeters to measure your inner beauty therefore, is how meek and quiet your spirit is.

7 And David said to Abiathar the priest, Ahimelech's son, I pray thee, bring me hither the ephod. And Abiathar brought thither the ephod to David.

8 And David enquired at the LORD, saying, Shall I pursue after this troop? shall I overtake them? And he answered him, Pursue: for thou shalt surely overtake them, and without fail recover all.

5 And a certain man was there, which had an infirmity thirty and eight years.

6 When Jesus saw him lie, and knew that he had been now a long time in that case, he saith unto him, Wilt thou be made whole?

7 The impotent man answered him, Sir, I have no man, when the water is troubled, to put me into the pool: but while I am coming, another steppeth down before me.

8 Jesus saith unto him, Rise, take up thy bed, and walk.

9 And immediately the man was made whole, and took up his bed, and walked: and on the same day was the sabbath.
