*DAILY DEW 11TH/JUNE/2021* *REDISCOVERING THE MESSAGE* (IV) _Key Bible Text:_ *"For we dare not make ourselves of the number, or compare ourselves with some that commend themselves: but they measuring themselves by themselves, and comparing themselves among themselves, are not wise."* (2 Corinthians 10:12 (KJV) _Bible Insight:_ In ministry, your emphasis will change if you start taking up projects that are beyond your financial capacity; things that burden and put so much pressure on you. You were steadily doing ministry and raising men till you heard one church pays 1m for venue every Sunday. Boom! You're immediately inspired by their faith not knowing they have steady partners and supporters they've built over the years. You also started with a 300k per Sunday rent even when all the giving that comes to church is not up to 200k per month. But you have faith in the God who did not send you to change venue. That's great. You heard a church has bought screen for the stage, you also quickly rush to price one. And then you compare your almost red account balance to the cost, but you still leaped in fate, sorry in faith. *Sometimes, we think God is as desperate as we are in funding such non essentials.* You were fine until you saw screen in another man's church!!! Now, because you need to buy the screen at all cost, you start preaching more about money, giving, sowing and reaping, special seeds, honour through seeds, etc. Man of God, it is not God that is inspiring all these messages and emphasis o. It is the pressure you've put upon yourself! It seems we've forgotten that God is not trying to fund everything we lust after. He is particularly interested in raising men. You don't have to lose your sleep to fund God's work. The venue is not yet full but you just want a very luxurious place that you can't afford at the moment. They've told you to dream wild and God will fund it. They lied to you. *God wants you free of covetousness.* In ministry, growth happens in every area. Some of the people you are coveting used the venues available to them, or the ones they could afford till there was growth numerically and they needed more space. Quit being carnal in your service. *MEDITATION:* *There are things you will spend money on at a stage in ministry that clearly shows you have your priorities misplaced. I believe God sends resources for the right things. In fact, I believe it strongly. Which is why I believe the man of God should just ensure to stay faithful to the work and be free of covetousness..* *#Adebowale_Ibukun_Tosin* *#Friday_wisdomforliving* *#Becoming_More_Like_Jesus* *#Generational_Impact* *#GuestMessage* *#Hello_June* ❤ *NEWS FLASH:* 🥳🥳 Links To Visit: *Podcast:* anchor.fm/daily-dew-devotional/episodes/TROUBLED-elli7h *FB Pages* www.facebook.com/DavidJoshuaEgbochuo/ www.facebook.com/thedavidgen/ www.facebook.com/THEREVIVALCORPS/ *DDDblog* dailydewdevotion.blogspot.com/2021/06/rediscovering-message-iv.html *Telegram Group:* t.me/joinchat/NzXQlVc9Hx7LfaRSnh9fHg Feel Free to Share with Friends.

*DAILY DEW 10TH/JUNE/2021* *REDISCOVERING THE MESSAGE* (III) _Key Bible Text:_ *"Meditate upon these things; give thyself wholly to them; that thy profiting may appear to all. Take heed unto thyself, and unto the doctrine; continue in them: for in doing this thou shalt both save thyself, and them that hear thee."* (1 Timothy 4:15-16 (KJV)) _Bible Insight:_ When we began weekly accountability in my local church, which I consider to be a sound church, it revealed how many people really need to develop a daily habit of feeding on the word and praying. I'd check people's study notes for the week and find out why they couldn't commit. For some the excuses were so flimsy, while others seemed to have legitimate excuses. And then I was able to counsel and encourage people. That brought some change. Why did I start doing this? Because I know from the bible that discipleship is not merely about coming to teach every Sunday. We are going to give an account of people's lives! It's important to keep people accountable; in fact, we have moved to daily accountability. We can be preaching hot and fiery sermons every Sunday yet people will not grow because they don't commit to the word through the week! I mean, here's a church where we labour hours in the word yet there were those who had no personal commitment to their growth outside the gathering. It was a wake up call for me. I was telling someone yesterday that the entertainment driven worship culture is giving us very poor feedbacks as a church. So, you have people who never study the word and pray all week attend church, and because of the powerful musical performances, the whole church is fired up, jumping and shouting and screaming, so much energy in the sessions! Then suddenly, you hear that the leader of the music team becomes an atheist or one of the pastors is having sexual affairs with members, and you wonder, 'with all the powerful services?' Truth is, it's a concern when very committed folks in church have such experiences. But another truth is that they were only committed to the activities in church meetings without a personal day to day commitment to God's word and prayer. See, without proper discipleship, we are just running a religious club. Good music will always stir people's emotions whether it's in a social or spiritual gathering. People who are so out of touch with God's word and prayer can suddenly become so ecstatic in a meeting where the atmosphere or ambience just seems right. It's a psychological thing. It's the reason why people are so excited in the meeting but then it all fizzles out after the service or next day. The only thing that brings stability and real growth is a daily feeding on the word and prayer! *MEDITATION:* *It's good you are setting up good sound and lights - they are cool for the media. But without solid discipleship, these are the very things that would deceive us to think the church is growing when what's really happening in the meetings is a pump of adrenaline - an impact that's shortlived.* *#Adebowale_Ibukun_Tosin* *#Thursday_wisdomforliving* *#Becoming_More_Like_Jesus* *#Generational_Impact* *#GuestMessage* *#Hello_June* ❤ *NEWS FLASH:* 🥳🥳 Links To Visit: *Podcast:* anchor.fm/daily-dew-devotional/episodes/TROUBLED-elli7h *FB Pages* www.facebook.com/DavidJoshuaEgbochuo/ www.facebook.com/thedavidgen/ www.facebook.com/THEREVIVALCORPS/ *DDDblog* dailydewdevotion.blogspot.com/2021/06/rediscovering-message-iii.html *Telegram Group:* t.me/joinchat/NzXQlVc9Hx7LfaRSnh9fHg Feel Free to Share with Friends.

*DAILY DEW 9TH/JUNE/2021* *REDISCOVERING THE MESSAGE* (II) _Key Bible Text:_ *"Most men will proclaim every one his own goodness: but a faithful man who can find? The just man walketh in his integrity: his children are blessed after him"* (Proverbs 20:6-7 (KJV)) _Bible Insight:_ When people talk about collecting mantles, they are simply speaking of a transfer of affluence and popularity; becoming a global voice. That's why the examples are always about how Bishop Idahosa passed the mantle to Bishop Oyedepo. Or how Pastor Kathryn Kulman passed the mantle to Pastor Benny Hinn. You don't find people waiting to collect mantles from a faithful labourer of Christ in some remote region, whom they know. It is always about popular men of God. It is a man-made idea. 1 Corinthians 12 and Romans 12 are classics on the differences in functions in the body. Everyone should stay in his place and do what God has called him to do. While some are queuing to collect mantles, some are already doing what God has called them to do. They may never even be under the spotlight; but they will fulfill their ministry in Christ! While we are busy naming God's Generals, God is busy recognising faithful servants - men who stayed in their place and did His work all for His glory alone - popular or not. You may have to read this twice. *MEDITATION:* *Who then is Paul, and who is Apollos, but ministers by whom ye believed, even as the Lord gave to every man? I have planted, Apollos watered; but God gave the increase. So then neither is he that planteth any thing, neither he that watereth; but God that giveth the increase.?* (1 Corinthians 3:5-7 (KJV)) *#Adebowale_Ibukun_Tosin* *#Wedneday_wisdomforliving* *#Becoming_More_Like_Jesus* *#Generational_Impact* *#GuestMessage* *#Hello_June* ❤ *NEWS FLASH:* 🥳🥳 Links To Visit: *Podcast:* anchor.fm/daily-dew-devotional/episodes/TROUBLED-elli7h *FB Pages* www.facebook.com/DavidJoshuaEgbochuo/ www.facebook.com/thedavidgen/ www.facebook.com/THEREVIVALCORPS/ *DDDblog* dailydewdevotion.blogspot.com/2021/06/rediscovering-message-ii.html *Telegram Group:* t.me/joinchat/NzXQlVc9Hx7LfaRSnh9fHg Feel Free to Share with Friends.
