TOPIC: PRACTICAL CHRISTIANITY


BIBLE TEXT: PSALMS 16:1-11
1. Preserve me, O God, for in You I put my trust.
2. O my soul, you have said to the Lord , “You
are my Lord, My goodness is nothing apart from
You.”
3. As for the saints who are on the earth, “They
are the excellent ones, in whom is all my
delight.”
4. Their sorrows shall be multiplied who hasten
after another god; Their drink offerings of blood I
will not offer, Nor take up their names on my
lips.
5. O Lord , You are the portion of my inheritance
and my cup; You maintain my lot.
6. The lines have fallen to me in pleasant places;
Yes, I have a good inheritance.
7. I will bless the Lord who has given me
counsel; My heart also instructs me in the night
seasons.
8. I have set the Lord always before me;
Because He is at my right hand I shall not be
moved.
9. Therefore my heart is glad, and my glory
rejoices; My flesh also will rest in hope.
10. For You will not leave my soul in Sheol, Nor
will You allow Your Holy One to see corruption.
11. You will show me the path of life; In Your
presence is fullness of joy; At Your right hand
are pleasures forevermore.
Psalms 16:1-11 NKJV

GUIDE MESSAGE
The text begins with, Preserve me, O God; for in
you I put my trust. This psalm of David may have
been written in time of trouble as the first verse
suggests. It may, on the other hand, be a joyful
expression of a man who is confident in casting
all his cares upon the Lord because He cares.
Trust in God is the highest honour you can do
Him and safest refuge you can take. David is
careful to acknowledge that his very best all of
his goodness - is from God. David also delighted
himself in the company of God's people (v.3). In
verses 4 6, he contrasts the folly of idolatry with
the blessing of honouring the Lord.
In following God, one may experience temporary
hardships (with good endings), but following after
other gods brings multiplication of sorrows all
through. So for David, it is God or nothing. What
about you?
David shows example of what it takes to be a
practical Christian: he loves and trusts God,
hates idolatry, is comfortable in the company of
believers (even if they are of other
denominations). Are you like David? If so thank
God, If not learn from Him.

PRAYER: Pray that the Spirit of God in you
helps you to live a practical Christian life - loving
God, His work and the brethren.

THERE IS HOPE FOR THE JUST

BIBLE TEXT: PSALMS 17:1-15
1. Hear a just cause, O Lord , Attend to my cry;
Give ear to my prayer which is not from deceitful
lips.
2. Let my vindication come from Your presence;
Let Your eyes look on the things that are
upright.
3. You have tested my heart; You have visited
me in the night; You have tried me and have
found nothing; I have purposed that my mouth
shall not transgress.
4. Concerning the works of men, By the word of
Your lips, I have kept away from the paths of the
destroyer.
5. Uphold my steps in Your paths, That my
footsteps may not slip.
6. I have called upon You, for You will hear me, O
God; Incline Your ear to me, and hear my
speech.
7. Show Your marvelous lovingkindness by Your
right hand, O You who save those who trust in
You From those who rise up against them.
8. Keep me as the apple of Your eye; Hide me
under the shadow of Your wings,
9. From the wicked who oppress me, From my
deadly enemies who surround me.
10. They have closed up their fat hearts; With
their mouths they speak proudly.
11. They have now surrounded us in our steps;
They have set their eyes, crouching down to the
earth,
12. As a lion is eager to tear his prey, And like a
young lion lurking in secret places.
13. Arise, O Lord , Confront him, cast him down;
Deliver my life from the wicked with Your sword,
14. With Your hand from men, O Lord , From men
of the world who have their portion in this life,
And whose belly You fill with Your hidden
treasure. They are satisfied with children, And
leave the rest of their possession for their babes.
15. As for me, I will see Your face in
righteousness; I shall be satisfied when I awake
in Your likeness.
Psalms 17:1-15 NKJV

GUIDE MESSAGE
Believers are not immune to societal trouble. In
fact, the opposite seem to be the case as Psalm
34:19 suggests: many are the afflictions of the
righteous. David is one man who had many
troubles and many enemies. The forces against
David were too many that he cried out, Lord how
have they increased who trouble me many are
they who rise up against me (Psalm 3:1). In his
troubles, David resorted to prayers as can be
seen in the entire text for today.
Specifically, David asked God to:
Arise on his behalf
Disappoint his enemies
Save him from the sword of the enemy with
Gods own sword (vs 13, 14).
You may learn one or two things from David,
namely: to call upon the Lord in the day of your
trouble and He will answer you (Jeremiah 33:3),
and to know that your weapons of warfare are
not physical but mighty from God to pulling down
enemies’ fortresses (2 Corinthians 10:4). Do you
have this confidence?

PRAYER: Lord Jesus, help me to trust, you to
fight my battles.

TOPIC: TESTIMONY TIME: I CALLED, HE
ANSWERED

BIBLE TEXT: PSALMS 18: 1 - 24
1. I will love You, O Lord , my strength.
2. The Lord is my rock and my fortress and my
deliverer; My God, my strength, in whom I will
trust; My shield and the horn of my salvation, my
stronghold.
3. I will call upon the Lord , who is worthy to be
praised; So shall I be saved from my enemies.
4. The pangs of death surrounded me, And the
floods of ungodliness made me afraid.
5. The sorrows of Sheol surrounded me; The
snares of death confronted me.
6. In my distress I called upon the Lord , And
cried out to my God; He heard my voice from His
temple, And my cry came before Him, even to
His ears.
7. Then the earth shook and trembled; The
foundations of the hills also quaked and were
shaken, Because He was angry.
8. Smoke went up from His nostrils, And
devouring fire from His mouth; Coals were
kindled by it.
9. He bowed the heavens also, and came down
With darkness under His feet.
10. And He rode upon a cherub, and flew; He
flew upon the wings of the wind.
11. He made darkness His secret place; His
canopy around Him was dark waters And thick
clouds of the skies.
12. From the brightness before Him, His thick
clouds passed with hailstones and coals of fire.
13. The Lord thundered from heaven, And the
Most High uttered His voice, Hailstones and
coals of fire.
14. He sent out His arrows and scattered the
foe, Lightnings in abundance, and He vanquished
them.
15. Then the channels of the sea were seen, The
foundations of the world were uncovered At Your
rebuke, O Lord , At the blast of the breath of
Your nostrils.
16. He sent from above, He took me; He drew
me out of many waters.
17. He delivered me from my strong enemy,
From those who hated me, For they were too
strong for me.
18. They confronted me in the day of my
calamity, But the Lord was my support.
19. He also brought me out into a broad place;
He delivered me because He delighted in me.
20. The Lord rewarded me according to my
righteousness; According to the cleanness of my
hands He has recompensed me.
21. For I have kept the ways of the Lord , And
have not wickedly departed from my God.
22. For all His judgments were before me, And I
did not put away His statutes from me.
23. I was also blameless before Him, And I kept
myself from my iniquity.
24. Therefore the Lord has recompensed me
according to my righteousness, According to the
cleanness of my hands in His sight.
Psalms 18:1-24 NKJV

TODAY'S GUIDE MESSAGE
Yesterday, we saw David in a desperate cry for
God to arise on his behalf and confront his
enemies (Psalm 17:13). Today, David gives
testimony of answered prayer:
In my distress I called upon the Lord,
And cried out to my God;
He heard my voice from His temple,
And my cry came before Him even to His ears
(Psalm 18:16)
David begins his testimony with glowing
adoration of God; I love you O Lord, my Strength,
my Rock, my Fortress the one who rescues me...
(vs 1, 2, Amplified). The rest are details of the
miraculous way God carried out the delivery: The
earth shook and trembled (v.7); The Lord also
thundered from the heaven (v.13); yea He sent
out his arrows and scattered them (v.14). He
delivered me from my strong enemy and from
them which hated me (v.17), because he
delighted in me (v.19).
It is good to give testimony of what God has
done in your life. Jesus asked after the nine
lepers that were cleansed but failed to return to
give glory to God (Luke 17:17-18). When you
thank the Lord for what He has done for you, He
is pleased to do more. Moreover, testifying of
your conversion experience more than anything
else, helps to bring people to Christ. Do you have
outstanding testimony? Share it to the glory of
God.

PRAYER: Lord Jesus, make me bold to
declare all your works in my life to the glory of
your Name.

TOPIC: PRODUCING CHRIST-LIKE LIFE

READING: John 15: 1-5 King James Version
(KJV)
"1. I am the true vine, and my Father is the
husbandman.
2. Every branch in me that beareth not fruit he
taketh away: and every branch that beareth fruit,
he purgeth it, that it may bring forth more fruit.
3. Now ye are clean through the word which I
have spoken unto you.
4. Abide in me, and I in you. As the branch
cannot bear fruit of itself, except it abide in the
vine; no more can ye, except ye abide in me.
5. I am the vine, ye are the branches: He that
abideth in me, and I in him, the same bringeth
forth much fruit: for without me ye can do
nothing."

MESSAGE:
Vine is often used as a symbol of Israel in the
Old Testament. In the Psalmist’s appeal for help,
he reminds the Lord "You brought a Vine out of
Egypt, you drove out the nations and planted
it" (Psalm 80: 8-12). Isaiah referred to Israel as
Vine planted and tended by God in the
expectation that it would bring f011h good
grapes but ended up bringing forth wild grapes
(Isaiah 5: 1-2). God’s expectation of Israel as a
righteous nation did not materialize as Israel fell
by the way.
In the New Testament, Jesus is the True Vine,
the true source from which God’s righteousness
can be attained. And Israel by faith received
spiritual sustenance through deep abiding
fellowship in Jesus Christ. Once the fruit is on
the vine, the vinedresser cleanses it of bugs and
diseases - the spiritual counterpart being the
cleansing which is done by the Word (v.3). The
abiding branch is cleansed as long as it humbly
submits to the word of Christ (John 17: 17). The
fruit that the heavenly vinedresser looks for in
His people, is Christ-like life (Galatians 5:22, 23).
In order to be productive, a branch must
continuously submit to pruning which is
beneficial discipline by the Father (Hebrew
12:9-11), and must maintain an abiding union
with the Vine (vs 4, 5).

PRAYER: Holy Spirit Divine, I thank you for your
work in making me to be like Jesus. I humbly
submit to any pruning that will bring the best out
of me.

TOPIC: BIRTH AND CIRCUMCISSION OF
JOHN THE BAPTIST


BIBLE TEXT: LUKE 1:57- 66
57. Now Elizabeth’s full time came for her to be
delivered, and she brought forth a son.
58. When her neighbors and relatives heard how
the Lord had shown great mercy to her, they
rejoiced with her.
59. So it was, on the eighth day, that they came
to circumcise the child; and they would have
called him by the name of his father, Zacharias.
60. His mother answered and said, “No; he shall
be called John.”
61. But they said to her, “There is no one among
your relatives who is called by this name.”
62. So they made signs to his father—what he
would have him called.
63. And he asked for a writing tablet, and wrote,
saying, “His name is John.” So they all marveled.
64. Immediately his mouth was opened and his
tongue loosed, and he spoke, praising God.
65. Then fear came on all who dwelt around
them; and all these sayings were discussed
throughout all the hill country of Judea.
66. And all those who heard them kept them in
their hearts, saying, “What kind of child will this
be?” And the hand of the Lord was with him.
Luke 1:57-66 NKJV

GUIDE MESSAGE
When it was time for Elizabeth to deliver, she
gave birth to a son. On the eighth day when he
was to be circumcised and given a name, the
neighbours called him Zacharias; the name of his
father. His mother objected and named him John
(collaborated by the father), being a name
already instructed by the angel to call him
(v.13). According to the Concise Bible Dictionary,
John means the Grace of Jehovah indicating that
he (John) was to introduce the grace and truth
that was to come through Jesus Christ (Luke
1:17). Johns conception and birth witnessed two
miracles (vs 20, 24). No wonder people marveled
at what manner of child he was to be.
In the Old Testament, circumcision was
appointed by God to be a token of the covenant
that He made with Abraham and his seed (as
people separated unto Him) and also the seal of
the righteousness of Abrahams faith. Contrary to
the plan of God, circumcision became a mere
formal act and the covenant itself disregarded
by Israelites. God spoke of them as having
uncircumcised hearts (Leviticus 26:41). The New
Testament is not against circumcision of the
flesh. It advocates the circumcision of the heart,
which is typified by putting off the body (sins) of
the flesh (Colossians 2:11) by the circumcision
of Christ, for one to be truly separated unto God
(Philippians 3:3).

PRAYER POINT: Pray for a heart and life
devoid of sin that you may be truly and
thoroughly separated unto Christ Jesus.

TOPIC: GODS WAY IS PERFECT


BIBLE TEXT: PSALMS 18:25- 50
25. With the merciful You will show Yourself
merciful; With a blameless man You will show
Yourself blameless; With the pure
26. You will show Yourself pure; And with the
devious You will show Yourself shrewd.
27. For You will save the humble people, But will
bring down haughty looks.
28. For You will light my lamp; The Lord my God
will enlighten my darkness.
29. For by You I can run against a troop, By my
God I can leap over a wall.
30. As for God, His way is perfect; The word of
the Lord is proven; He is a shield to all who trust
in Him.
31. For who is God, except the Lord ? And who
is a rock, except our God?
32. It is God who arms me with strength, And
makes my way perfect.
33. He makes my feet like the feet of deer, And
sets me on my high places.
34. He teaches my hands to make war, So that
my arms can bend a bow of bronze.
35. You have also given me the shield of Your
salvation; Your right hand has held me up, Your
gentleness has made me great.
36. You enlarged my path under me, So my feet
did not slip.
37. I have pursued my enemies and overtaken
them; Neither did I turn back again till they were
destroyed.
38. I have wounded them, So that they could not
rise; They have fallen under my feet.
39. For You have armed me with strength for the
battle; You have subdued under me those who
rose up against me.
40. You have also given me the necks of my
enemies, So that I destroyed those who hated
me.
41. They cried out, but there was none to save;
Even to the Lord , but He did not answer them.
42. Then I beat them as fine as the dust before
the wind; I cast them out like dirt in the streets.
43. You have delivered me from the strivings of
the people; You have made me the head of the
nations; A people I have not known shall serve
me.
44. As soon as they hear of me they obey me;
The foreigners submit to me.
45. The foreigners fade away, And come
frightened from their hideouts.
46. The Lord lives! Blessed be my Rock! Let the
God of my salvation be exalted.
47. It is God who avenges me, And subdues the
peoples under me;
48. He delivers me from my enemies. You also
lift me up above those who rise against me; You
have delivered me from the violent man.
49. Therefore I will give thanks to You, O Lord ,
among the Gentiles, And sing praises to Your
name.
50. Great deliverance He gives to His king, And
shows mercy to His anointed, To David and his
descendants forevermore.
Psalms 18:25-50 NKJV

GUIDE MESSAGE
In today's text, David continues his testimony of
Gods faithfulness to him (started in Psalm
18:1-24).
He begins with singing Gods praise for being a
just and merciful God, and for care and help in
all his ordeals. In verse 29 he says: For by you I
have run against a troop and have leaped over a
wall, indicative of his victory over the stronghold
of the Jebusites at Jerusalem (2 Samuel 5:6-10).
In verses 34 and 45, he recounts his military
successes for which he gives all the credit and
glory to God. In verses 39-40, he rejoices in God
for equipping him with the strength for battle and
for making his enemies turn their back to him in
surrender. However in verse 47, he acknowledges
that it is God who avenges for him, subduing his
enemies under him.
Because of this, David writes in verse 49 I will
give thanks to you, O Lord, among the nation and
sing praise to your Name. He concludes his
testimony in this glowing praise Great
deliverance He gives to His King and shows His
mercies to His anointed, David and his
descendants forever more (v.50). Do you have
testimony of Gods mercies to you, your family or
in your business? Go ahead and share same
today so that someone can be inspired.

PRAYER: Lord Jesus I thank you for your
deeds in my life. Let me never cease to sing of
your mercies all the days of my life.

BIBLE TEXT: PSALMS 19:1 - 14
1. The heavens declare the glory of God; And the
firmament shows His handiwork.
2. Day unto day utters speech, And night unto
night reveals knowledge.
3. There is no speech nor language Where their
voice is not heard.
4. Their line has gone out through all the earth,
And their words to the end of the world. In them
He has set a tabernacle for the sun,
5. Which is like a bridegroom coming out of his

6. Its rising is from one end of heaven, And its

8. The statutes of the Lord are right, rejoicing

9. The fear of the Lord is clean, enduring forever;
The judgments of the Lord are true and righteous

10. More to be desired are they than gold, Yea,

11. Moreover by them Your servant is warned,
And in keeping them there is great reward.
12. Who can understand his errors? Cleanse me

13. Keep back Your servant also from
presumptuous sins; Let them not have dominion
over me. Then I shall be blameless, And I shall
be innocent of great transgression.
14. Let the words of my mouth and the
meditation of my heart Be acceptable in Your
sight, O Lord , my strength and my Redeemer.
Psalms 19:1-14 NKJV

GUIDE MESSAGE
This Psalm is one of the greatest. It begins with
a declaration of the glory of God as seen in all
the works of creation. It then moves into Gods
authority in His creation through the power of
His word. The psalmist demonstrates that the
created universe is a constant reminder to any
honest beholder that there is God. Not only that
God created everything, He set boundaries for
that which is created (v.4) to establish order in
the universe. Speaking about these boundaries in
Acts 17:26-27, Paul interprets it as the nations
of the world wherein the Gospel must be
preached (Matthew 28:19-20). The Gospel being
the law of the Lord that is perfect, converting
the soul (v.7).
Verse 13 warns against presumptuous sin. This
is sin committed willfully against manifest light
and knowledge - (Spurgeon). It is a deliberate
sin. Paul warns in Romans 1:18-20 that the wrath
of God is upon those who deliberately sin by
pretending that God does not exit, because what
is known and revealed about God in creation
clearly shows there is God. So, there is no
excuse for a sinner who rejects Gods Salvation
through His Son Jesus Christ from eternal
damnation.
Action- Help spread the Good News: There is
God, Jesus saves, and Hell is real.

PRAYER: Lord help me live up to your
mandate To preach the gospel and make
disciples for the Kingdom.

May the name of the God of Jacob defend you;
2. May He send you help from the sanctuary, And
strengthen you out of Zion;
3. May He remember all your offerings, And

4. May He grant you according to your heart’s

5. We will rejoice in your salvation, And in the

May the Lord fulfill all your petitions.
6. Now I know that the Lord saves His anointed;
He will answer him from His holy heaven With

7. Some trust in chariots, and some in horses;
But we will remember the name of the Lord our

8. They have bowed down and fallen; But we
have risen and stand upright.
9. Save, Lord ! May the King answer us when we
call.
Psalms 20:1-9 NKJV

GUIDE MESSAGE
Psalms 20 and 21 are closely related. While
psalm 20 is a prayer for victory in an impending
battle, psalm 21 is a thanksgiving to God for
deliverance from the hands of the enemy. The
prayer in chapter 20 must have been made in
conjunction with sacrifice of burnt offering.
There is evidence that the King was present at
the prayer and burnt offering service. The prayer
is that the Lord grants the king his wishes of
bringing deliverance and protection to the people
from their oppressors. While the opposing armies
trusted in the power of their instruments of war,
they told God that their godly king trusted in the
Lord and in the might of His power. The
indication in verses 1-5 is that the people were
asking that they be saved through the Lords
blessing of the King who trusted in Him.
Proverbs 18:10 says that the name of the Lord is
a strong tower, the righteous runs to it and is
safe. How often do you run to The Strong Tower
when faced with enemies? David defeated the
mighty Goliath by running to the Strong Tower.
Then David said to the Philistine, you come to
me with a sword, and with a spear and with a
shield, but I come to you in the name of the Lord
(1 Samuel 17:45). In that battle, David prevailed
over the Philistine.

PRAYER: Pray for your leaders, that they
depend on the Lord in handling difficult
challenges in the land.

2. You have given him his heart’s desire, And
have not withheld the request of his lips. Selah

11. For they intended evil against You; They

Psalms 21:1-11 NKJV

GUIDE MESAGE
David faced many foes before his throne as a
King was finally established. Yesterdays text was
Davids request that he, with his people, be
delivered from an imminent attack. God gave the
victory and todays psalm is thanksgiving for that
victory. David gave thanks for past and
anticipated blessings from God (vs. 2, 3). For
anticipated blessings, the kings request is that
his enemies, those who hate him, be found out,
consumed, and burned with fire (vs. 8-9) and
their offspring destroyed from among the
children of men (v.10). This fiery prayer of David
is premised on his belief that any enemy of his
and his people, is Gods enemy, because God has
chosen them (David and his people) as His own.
David is a good example of a man who rejoices
in the Lord in and outside trouble times. He is so
confident that God will always hear him when he
prays. He understands his divine relationship
with God and believes that whoever troubles him
is troubling God and will receive commensurate
judgment from God Himself. What is your
relationship with God through His Son Jesus
Christ like? Is He your first port of call in time of
trouble, confident that He will deliver you or is
He a stand-by in case other sources fail? Those
who trust in the Lord, are like Mount Zion, which
cannot be moved, but abides forever (Psalm
125:1).

PRAYER: Lord build in me the kind Davids
confidence to trust in you in my every life
situation.

TOPIC: ST. PETER THE APOSTLE

BIBLE TEXT: ACT 12:1- 11
1. Now about that time Herod the king stretched
out his hand to harass some from the church.
2. Then he killed James the brother of John with
the sword.
3. And because he saw that it pleased the Jews,
he proceeded further to seize Peter also. Now it
was during the Days of Unleavened Bread.
4. So when he had arrested him, he put him in
prison, and delivered him to four squads of
soldiers to keep him, intending to bring him
before the people after Passover.
5. Peter was therefore kept in prison, but
constant prayer was offered to God for him by
the church.
6. And when Herod was about to bring him out,
that night Peter was sleeping, bound with two
chains between two soldiers; and the guards
before the door were keeping the prison.
7. Now behold, an angel of the Lord stood by
him, and a light shone in the prison; and he
struck Peter on the side and raised him up,
saying, “Arise quickly!” And his chains fell off his
hands.
8. Then the angel said to him, “Gird yourself and
tie on your sandals”; and so he did. And he said
to him, “Put on your garment and follow me.”
9. So he went out and followed him, and did not
know that what was done by the angel was real,
but thought he was seeing a vision.
10. When they were past the first and the
second guard posts, they came to the iron gate
that leads to the city, which opened to them of
its own accord; and they went out and went
down one street, and immediately the angel
departed from him.
11. And when Peter had come to himself, he
said, “Now I know for certain that the Lord has
sent His angel, and has delivered me from the
hand of Herod and from all the expectation of
the Jewish people.”
Acts 12:1-11 NKJV

GUIDE MESSAGE
Peter, one of the twelve apostles, was originally
called Simon, but had his name changed to Peter
by Jesus. At the bidding of Christ, he forsook his
fishing profession to follow Him. He was a close
confidant of Christ with James and John who
were usually called to higher assignments. It was
Peter, who by the leading of the spirit,
confessed Jesus as the living God the
foundation upon which the Church was built.
He was given the keys to the kingdom of God
and with this, he opened the Gate of the
Kingdom to thousands of Jews, with many
gentiles following. In the course of preaching the
gospel, Peter was arrested by Herod Agrippa
(Acts 12:1-4). Herod kept him in maximum
security prison intending to kill him as he did
James, to the pleasure of the Jews. But God
intervened. Peter was released, not to the sword
of Herod but, to the arms of the mildly surprised
apostles.
But earnest prayers was offered to God for him
by the Church (Acts 12:5b). James 5:17b says
the effective and earnest prayer of the righteous
avails much. Gods power is greater than any
other power. For Gods sovereign plan to prevail
speedily, He needs the earnest prayer of His
Church. Are you up against any difficult
situation? May be what you need do now is an
earnest prayer to God.

PRAYER POINT: Use Psalm 50:15 as you
prayer guide.

BIBLE TEXT: PSALMS 23: 1-6
1. The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want.
2. He makes me to lie down in green pastures;
He leads me beside the still waters.
3. He restores my soul; He leads me in the paths
of righteousness For His name’s sake.
4. Yea, though I walk through the valley of the
shadow of death, I will fear no evil; For You are
with me; Your rod and Your staff, they comfort
me.
5. You prepare a table before me in the presence
of my enemies; You anoint my head with oil; My
cup runs over.
6. Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me All
the days of my life; And I will dwell in the house
of the Lord Forever.
Psalms 23:1-6 NKJV

GUIDE MESSAGE
Our text today is one Bible portion that we recite
in our daily prayers. Yesterdays reflection gave
us hope in the midst of challenges. Today, our
text is an assurance of safety under Gods care.
Sheep are completely dependent on the shepherd
for guidance, protection and above all, provision.
Our Lord Jesus Christ is described in the new
testament as the good Shepherd (John 10:11).
When we recognize the good Shepherd and
follow him, He will take care of our needs. But
when we choose to go our own way without
allowing Him to be the Lord of our lives, we may
likely miss all the privileges He gives to those
that trust and obey Him. Jesus who is our good
Shepherd knows the green pastures and still
waters that will restore us.
In John 10:27-28, Jesus says My sheep hear my
voice, and I know them, and they follow me. I
give them eternal life, and they shall never
perish; neither shall anyone snatch them out of
my hand. Are you sure that you are counted?
There is a need for self-examination. If you claim
that God is your shepherd but the same God
does not see you as one of his sheep, that
means you are in trouble. Secure your
membership today by accepting Jesus as the
Lord of your life.

PRAYER: Take my life, and let it be
consecrated, Lord, to You.

(St. Thomas the Apostle)

TOPIC: GO ON TO MATURITY

BIBLE TEXT: JOHN 20: 24-29
24. Now Thomas, called the Twin, one of the
twelve, was not with them when Jesus came.
25. The other disciples therefore said to him,
“We have seen the Lord.” So he said to them,
“Unless I see in His hands the print of the nails,
and put my finger into the print of the nails, and
put my hand into His side, I will not believe.”
26. And after eight days His disciples were again
inside, and Thomas with them. Jesus came, the
doors being shut, and stood in the midst, and
said, “Peace to you!”
27. Then He said to Thomas, “Reach your finger
here, and look at My hands; and reach your hand
here, and put it into My side. Do not be
unbelieving, but believing.”
28. And Thomas answered and said to Him, “My
Lord and my God!”
29. Jesus said to him, “Thomas, because you
have seen Me, you have believed. Blessed are
those who have not seen and yet have believed.”
John 20:24-29 NKJV

GUIDE MESSAGE
Every person who wants to be a good leader in
the church, family, organization etc., needs to
learn from Jesus Christ. He has excellent
leadership qualities that make him to lead well.
Ordinarily, many leaders would have first rebuked
Thomas for being absent in the day of first
appearance. Thomas would have been made to
explain where he went to. But Jesus went
straight to clear his doubt. Knowing Thomas’
weakness, Jesus made Himself real to him. He
led Thomas step by step to acknowledge Him
(vs.27-29). From being a doubting Thomas,
Jesus made Thomas to become a believing
Thomas. Wisdom is highly required in soul
wining. The Thomases in our churches and
fellowships need a caring shepherd that can lead
them step by step to acknowledge Jesus as their
Lord.
Thomas probably wouldn't have doubted the
appearance of Jesus if he were there when He
first visited. In most cases, it is people who dont
attend meetings where decisions are taken that
often create problems and gossips that scatter
organizations. Be careful. If you want your doubt
to be cleared and your opinion taken, attend
meetings. It takes love and maturity to correct
Thomas. Please know the weakness of your
subordinates and always apply the right approach
in correcting them.

Prayer: My God, my father, while I astray far
from faith, teach me to always say, Thy will be
established in me.

GUIDE MESSAGE
One of the greatest mistakes a caretaker in a
house can make is to take the trust given to him
by the landlord for granted. A caretaker can be
changed and his privileges withdrawn but the
ownership of the house will always remain with
the Landlord.
Our text is a great reminder to us of who is in-
charge of the earth. The earth and the world
belong to the Lord. All the riches, possessions
and material things are Gods own. We should not
lose sight of this reality. The money we have,
the cars, the houses and other material things
are held in trust for God.
Even the life we live is not ours. In Luke
12:16-21, a rich man was described as a fool
because he made wealth and forgot God who
owns his life and all his wealth. There is no room
for argument with the creator. The way we use
what God has given to us must be pleasing to
Him.
Do not betray trust. Our homes, cars and money
are to be used for the service of God. Avoid the
temptation of thinking that you are self-made
because of your life experiences. Without the
grace of God, you can do nothing. So begin to
think on how to put your possession into Gods
work.

PRAYER: Merciful God, give me the grace to
follow.

PSALMS 25:1-22
1. To You, O Lord , I lift up my soul.
2. O my God, I trust in You; Let me not be
ashamed; Let not my enemies triumph over me.
3. Indeed, let no one who waits on You be
ashamed; Let those be ashamed who deal
treacherously without cause.
4. Show me Your ways, O Lord ; Teach me Your
paths.
5. Lead me in Your truth and teach me, For You
are the God of my salvation; On You I wait all
the day.
6. Remember, O Lord , Your tender mercies and
Your lovingkindnesses, For they are from of old.
7. Do not remember the sins of my youth, nor my
transgressions; According to Your mercy
remember me, For Your goodness’ sake, O Lord .
8. Good and upright is the Lord ; Therefore He
teaches sinners in the way.
9. The humble He guides in justice, And the
humble He teaches His way.
10. All the paths of the Lord are mercy and truth,
To such as keep His covenant and His
testimonies.
11. For Your name’s sake, O Lord , Pardon my
iniquity, for it is great.
12. Who is the man that fears the Lord ? Him
shall He teach in the way He chooses.
13. He himself shall dwell in prosperity, And his
descendants shall inherit the earth.
14. The secret of the Lord is with those who fear
Him, And He will show them His covenant.
15. My eyes are ever toward the Lord , For He
shall pluck my feet out of the net.
16. Turn Yourself to me, and have mercy on me,
For I am desolate and afflicted.
17. The troubles of my heart have enlarged;
Bring me out of my distresses!
18. Look on my affliction and my pain, And
forgive all my sins.
19. Consider my enemies, for they are many; And
they hate me with cruel hatred.
20. Keep my soul, and deliver me; Let me not be
ashamed, for I put my trust in You.
21. Let integrity and uprightness preserve me,
For I wait for You.
22. Redeem Israel, O God, Out of all their
troubles!
Psalms 25:1-22 NKJV

GUIDE MESSAGE
A step by step study of todays text will reveal
vital secrets of success. In verse 4, the Psalmist
asked God to show him His ways. In Psalm
103:7, the Bible says that God made known His
ways to Moses, and His acts to the children of
Israel. Regrettably, most of us are more
interested in asking God to endorse our will than
asking Him to teach us His ways. Some even
think that Gods ways are anti-social and so need
not to be sought for. In verse 9, the Psalmist
pointed out that God guides the humble in justice
and teaches him His ways. Those who fear Him,
He shows them His covenant (v.14). Are you
humble? Do you fear the Lord? You need to have
these basic requirements to access the benefits
that are associated with them. The Psalmist in
verse 21 desired to be preserved by integrity and
uprightness as he waited for the Lord. Pause and
rate your life in terms of integrity and
uprightness.
Life is a choice. Your choice makes the
difference. Take decisions that can give you
good results. God knows the best for you and
you can attain fulfillment when you follow Gods
instructions. Kindly tune down the worlds volume
so that you can hear God clearly. You are
secured when you are under his leading.

PRAYER: Prosper me oh Lord in your
righteousness.

integrity. I have also trusted in the Lord ; I shall
not slip.

7. That I may proclaim with the voice of
thanksgiving, And tell of all Your wondrous

8. Lord , I have loved the habitation of Your
house, And the place where Your glory dwells.
9. Do not gather my soul with sinners, Nor my

whose right hand is full of bribes.
11. But as for me, I will walk in my integrity;
Redeem me and be merciful to me.
12. My foot stands in an even place; In the
congregations I will bless the Lord .
Psalms 26:1-12 NKJV

GUIDE MESSAGE
The Psalmist is not claiming perfection, but a
consistent life of fellowship, trust and obedience
to God. He ensured that he cleared his record
when he sinned by asking for forgiveness. We
can ask God to examine us with the genuine
intention of allowing Him to remove things that
work against His will in our lives. Verses 4-5
should not be mistaken for staying away from
unbelievers. We live in the world and with the
people of the world but we should not allow the
world to live in us. There are places Christians
should however, avoid. But we must go among
the unbelievers to help them as Jesus
demonstrated to us. There is clearly a difference
between being with unbelievers and being an
unbeliever. As a believer, the light of our lives
should attract unbelievers to Christ. The psalmist
recognizes in verse 11 that it is his duty to walk
in integrity and Gods duty to redeem and be
merciful to him. So play your own part.
God knows you. He knows both your public and
private life. You cant hide anything from him.
Ask Him today to evaluate you in His own scale.
Be ready to accept His assessment of your life.
Students take mock examinations to prepare for
the final examinations. You need to re-order your
steps now before it becomes late. Pray,
meditate, pause and make a resolution.

PRAYER: Spirit of the living God, fall afresh
on me. Break me, mould me and use me.

BIBLE TEXT: MATTHEW 6:24-34
24. “No one can serve two masters; for either he
will hate the one and love the other, or else he
will be loyal to the one and despise the other.
You cannot serve God and mammon.
25. “Therefore I say to you, do not worry about
your life, what you will eat or what you will drink;
nor about your body, what you will put on. Is not
life more than food and the body more than
clothing?
26. Look at the birds of the air, for they neither
sow nor reap nor gather into barns; yet your
heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not of more
value than they?
27. Which of you by worrying can add one cubit
to his stature?
28. “So why do you worry about clothing?
Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow:
they neither toil nor spin;
29. and yet I say to you that even Solomon in all
his glory was not arrayed like one of these.
30. Now if God so clothes the grass of the field,
which today is, and tomorrow is thrown into the
oven, will He not much more clothe you, O you of
little faith?
31. “Therefore do not worry, saying, ‘What shall
we eat?’ or ‘What shall we drink?’ or ‘What shall
we wear?’
32. For after all these things the Gentiles seek.
For your heavenly Father knows that you need all
these things.
33. But seek first the kingdom of God and His
righteousness, and all these things shall be
added to you.
34. Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for
tomorrow will worry about its own things.
Sufficient for the day is its own trouble.
Matthew 6:24-34 NKJV

READ THIS:
In most cases, students fail examinations not
necessarily because they do not read but
because they fail to follow the examiner’s simple
instructions. God knows our challenges. He
knows we need to pay house rents, school fees,
and meet other obligations. Yet, He instructed us
not to worry. The best way to get peace and
rest of mind in life is to obey Gods word. In
1Peter 5:7, God instructed us to cast our cares
upon Him for He cares for us. All these
assurances are good enough to remove pressure
of life from us. Worry and anxiety are signs of
faithlessness. The simple truth remains that
more than 90% per cent of what we worry and
fear about do not come true. Most of them are
solved in time; some even solve themselves. God
is faithful. He will surely make a way where there
is no way if you trust Him. Your family will not
starve, and hope for the education of your
children will be fulfilled. Believe in His
assurances.
Encourage yourself. God is in control. Good
things lie ahead of you. Dont kill yourself before
your appointed time. If you do, life will still go on.
Now that you have heard God say you should not
worry, carry all those burdens and cast them
upon Him. Work, pray and trust God. Very soon,
the cloud will clear and you will rejoice.

PRAYER: All to you oh my Lord, I surrender all
my burdens.

shall I fear? The Lord is the strength of my life;
Of whom shall I be afraid?
2. When the wicked came against me To eat up
my flesh, My enemies and foes, They stumbled
and fell.
3. Though an army may encamp against me, My
heart shall not fear; Though war may rise against
me, In this I will be confident.
4. One thing I have desired of the Lord , That will
I seek: That I may dwell in the house of the Lord
All the days of my life, To behold the beauty of
the Lord , And to inquire in His temple.
5. For in the time of trouble He shall hide me in
His pavilion; In the secret place of His
tabernacle He shall hide me; He shall set me
high upon a rock.
6. And now my head shall be lifted up above my
enemies all around me; Therefore I will offer

13. I would have lost heart, unless I had believed
That I would see the goodness of the Lord In the
land of the living.
14. Wait on the Lord ; Be of good courage, And
He shall strengthen your heart; Wait, I say, on
the Lord !
Psalms 27:1-14 NKJV

GUIDE MESSAGE
Confidence in God is our antidote for fear. The
Lord who is the believers light, is the strength of
his life. A person who sincerely trusts in the
Lord, has nothing to fear. Fear subjects us to
slavery. We often have fear of sickness,
rejection, misunderstanding, job insecurity,
uncertainty, etc. To conquer all kinds of fear, we
must build our faith in God (see Ephesians
6:13-18). Davids greatest desire in life was to
live in Gods presence each day of his life.
Unfortunately, the opposite is often the case for
most of us. Most of us can spend quality time
watching football, films, and other programmes,
but easily complain when little time is spent in
church programmes. It is good to desire what is
good. The Psalmists special trust and interest in
God is worth emulating. He knew what it meant
to wait for the Lord (v.14). Waiting for God may
not be easy, but God is worth waiting for.
Build your trust and confidence in the Lord. God
is your life and the length of your days
(Deuteronomy 30:20). If you are secured in Him,
you are secured in all situations of life.
Prayerfully commit your life and family to Him.
You will never pay tribute to any enemy. No
person will subject you to slavery. God will raise
a standard against things that stand on your
way. Just build your confidence in Him.

PRAYER POINT: Ask God to increase your
faith so that the things you fear will begin to fear
you.

GUIDE MESSAGE
A young lady was approached for marriage. She
informed her trusted friend, in an attempt to seek
her advice. With numerous reasons, the friend
discouraged her from marrying the man.
Surprisingly, the same friend went at the back to
convince the man to marry her and he did. As
the Psalmist observed, wicked people often put
on a show of kindness or friendship in order to
gain their own desires. Yes, we have friends in
need who are also friends indeed. Yet there are
wicked ones that often position themselves to
destroy ones life. Prayers are needed in all
situations. Today, the church is faced with the
challenge of fishing out pretenders who entered
our churches, groups, organizations and
fellowships as believers but are there defrauding
brethren, spoiling youths and introducing
contaminants into the system.
Who are you in the midst of the saints? Are you
a builder or a destroyer? Is the appearance you
put up your true colour? The Lord is the strength
of His church. One day your sins will find you
out. But if you are a good friend to the family of
God, keep on doing your good job. God will richly
bless you. If you are not, please repent and sin
no more.

GUIDE MESSAGE
The Psalmist, in todays text, set a good example
for us. After numerous Psalms in which he
agonized over being chased by enemies, denied
justice by wicked people and experiencing delay
in receiving answers to his prayers, he realized
the need to worship God. He called for all
creation to worship God the creator and ruler of
the world. God is great. Throughout history, God
has revealed His power through mighty miracles
over nature as we have in the case of the great
flood (Genesis 7:17-20). The power of God
controls creation and raises the dead. The same
power that raised Jesus from the dead is
available today to help us with our daily
problems.
True personal worship that flows from the inner
heart to God is seriously lacking among us
today. Learn to worship God. Appreciate God for
the gift of nature. Dont allow your daily life
challenges hinder you from worshiping the
source and sustainer of your life. Sing praises to
Him and ensure that your heart acknowledges
His glorious work in your life.

PRAYER POINT: Take time today to worship
God. Thank Him for His goodness and wonderful
works to humanity.

TOPIC: VICTORY ASSURED

BIBLE TEXT: PSALMS 30:1-12
1. I will extol You, O Lord , for You have lifted me
up, And have not let my foes rejoice over me.
2. O Lord my God, I cried out to You, And You
healed me.
3. O Lord , You brought my soul up from the
grave; You have kept me alive, that I should not
go down to the pit.
4. Sing praise to the Lord , you saints of His, And
give thanks at the remembrance of His holy
name.
5. For His anger is but for a moment, His favor is
for life; Weeping may endure for a night, But joy
comes in the morning.
6. Now in my prosperity I said, “I shall never be
moved.”
7. Lord , by Your favor You have made my
mountain stand strong; You hid Your face, and I
was troubled.
8. I cried out to You, O Lord ; And to the Lord I
made supplication:
9. “What profit is there in my blood, When I go
down to the pit? Will the dust praise You? Will it
declare Your truth?
10. Hear, O Lord , and have mercy on me; Lord ,
be my helper!”
11. You have turned for me my mourning into
dancing; You have put off my sackcloth and
clothed me with gladness,
12. To the end that my glory may sing praise to
You and not be silent. O Lord my God, I will give
thanks to You forever.
Psalms 30:1-12 NKJV

GUIDE MESSAGE
Problems have expiry dates. One strong point of
our text today is that trials are temporary and
can never bring defeat if we remain faithful to
God. Yes, you might be standing on the edge of
your confusion and it looks as if you are about to
fall because of the problems you are facing.
Now, the word of God is coming to you saying;
Weeping might endure for a night but joy comes
in the morning (v.5). In Psalm 126:5, it is
written; Those who sow in tears will reap with
songs of joy. The concluding part of this Psalm
describes the transformation Gods intervention
brought about; You turned my wailing into
dancing, you removed my sackcloth and clothed
me with joy (vs.11-12).
Your miracle is on your way. Dont concentrate
on your problems. Look beyond where you are,
see with the eye of faith, and trust God for even
the impossible. God will answer your prayers and
grant you what is written in v.11. It is expected
of you to follow the example of the Psalmist in
v.12. Your victory or success is secured in God.

PRAYER POINT: In faith, thank God in
advance for answering your prayers.

TOPIC: COME NEARER

BIBLE TEXT:PSALMS 31:1-24
1. In You, O Lord , I put my trust; Let me never
be ashamed; Deliver me in Your righteousness.
2. Bow down Your ear to me, Deliver me
speedily; Be my rock of refuge, A fortress of
defense to save me.
3. For You are my rock and my fortress;
Therefore, for Your name’s sake, Lead me and
guide me.
4. Pull me out of the net which they have
secretly laid for me, For You are my strength.
5. Into Your hand I commit my spirit; You have
redeemed me, O Lord God of truth.
6. I have hated those who regard useless idols;
But I trust in the Lord .
7. I will be glad and rejoice in Your mercy, For
You have considered my trouble; You have
known my soul in adversities,
8. And have not shut me up into the hand of the
enemy; You have set my feet in a wide place.
9. Have mercy on me, O Lord , for I am in
trouble; My eye wastes away with grief, Yes, my
soul and my body!
10. For my life is spent with grief, And my years
with sighing; My strength fails because of my
iniquity, And my bones waste away.
11. I am a reproach among all my enemies, But
especially among my neighbors, And am
repulsive to my acquaintances; Those who see
me outside flee from me.
12. I am forgotten like a dead man, out of mind;
I am like a broken vessel.
13. For I hear the slander of many; Fear is on
every side; While they take counsel together
against me, They scheme to take away my life.
14. But as for me, I trust in You, O Lord ; I say,
“You are my God.”
15. My times are in Your hand; Deliver me from
the hand of my enemies, And from those who
persecute me.
16. Make Your face shine upon Your servant;
Save me for Your mercies’ sake.
17. Do not let me be ashamed, O Lord , for I
have called upon You; Let the wicked be
ashamed; Let them be silent in the grave.
18. Let the lying lips be put to silence, Which
speak insolent things proudly and
contemptuously against the righteous.
19. Oh, how great is Your goodness, Which You
have laid up for those who fear You, Which You
have prepared for those who trust in You In the
presence of the sons of men!
20. You shall hide them in the secret place of
Your presence From the plots of man; You shall
keep them secretly in a pavilion From the strife
of tongues.
21. Blessed be the Lord , For He has shown me
His marvelous kindness in a strong city!
22. For I said in my haste, “I am cut off from
before Your eyes”; Nevertheless You heard the
voice of my supplications When I cried out to
You.
23. Oh, love the Lord , all you His saints! For the
Lord preserves the faithful, And fully repays the
proud person.
24. Be of good courage, And He shall strengthen
your heart, All you who hope in the Lord .
Psalms 31:1-24 NKJV

GUIDE MESSAGE
The Psalmist began this Psalm with a plea from
God, and ended with praise. It is obvious that
the Psalmist knew God in a very personal way
before he got into the crisis that led to the
Psalm. He understood that without God, he could
not win the smallest battle against his enemies.
He was content to allow God to direct his steps.
His prayer reveals that in time of deep trouble,
we can hide in the shelter of Gods presence
(v.20). A great assurance was given to us in
Jeremiah 33:3 as it is written Call to me and I
will answer you, and show you great and mighty
things, which you do not know. Observe the
expression in (v.5): Into your hand I commit my
spirit. This shows complete trust in God. Jesus
also used this word while he was on the cross
(Luke 23:46). We should commit all to God: our
possessions, families, vocations and above all,
our lives to Him.
God has not changed. If you live in obedience to
Him, He will be your rock of refuge and will
never allow you to be put to shame. Keep on
trusting in Him to rescue you from any challenge
you are facing in life. Dont allow your problems
to make you to undermine the trust you have in
God. God will make a way for you even where
there is no way.

PRAYER: I put my trust in you oh Lord, let not
my enemies triumph over me.

TOPIC: OPEN UP!

BIBLE TEXT: PSALMS 32:1-11
1. Blessed is he whose transgression is forgiven,
Whose sin is covered.
2. Blessed is the man to whom the Lord does
not impute iniquity, And in whose spirit there is
no deceit. When
3. I kept silent, my bones grew old Through my
groaning all the day long.
4. For day and night Your hand was heavy upon
me; My vitality was turned into the drought of
summer. Selah
5. I acknowledged my sin to You, And my iniquity
I have not hidden. I said, “I will confess my
transgressions to the Lord ,” And You forgave the
iniquity of my sin. Selah
6. For this cause everyone who is godly shall
pray to You In a time when You may be found;
Surely in a flood of great waters They shall not
come near him.
7. You are my hiding place; You shall preserve
me from trouble; You shall surround me with
songs of deliverance. Selah
8. I will instruct you and teach you in the way
you should go; I will guide you with My eye.
9. Do not be like the horse or like the mule,
Which have no understanding, Which must be
harnessed with bit and bridle, Else they will not
come near you.
10. Many sorrows shall be to the wicked; But he
who trusts in the Lord , mercy shall surround
him.
11. Be glad in the Lord and rejoice, you
righteous; And shout for joy, all you upright in
heart!
Psalms 32:1-11 NKJV

GUIDE MESSAGE
God does not want us to experience the
heaviness associated with painful guilt caused
by unconfessed sin. His desire is that we live in
peace and joy which are available to us when we
believe that God forgives us. Peace and joy
promote health. But chronic guilt damages our
health. The truth is that if we dont deal with our
guilt, it will deal with us. In the scriptures, it is
clearly stated, If we say that we have no sin, we
deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us. If
we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to
forgive us our sins and cleanse us from all
unrighteousness (1John 1:8-9). Guilt melts like a
block of ice when confession is made. When we
confess our guilt to the Lord, He promises to
forgive us (v.1). When one is forgiven, the
burden of sin gives way to peace of mind.
Wouldnt you like a clear conscience?
Unconfessed sin will continue to affect you
spiritually, psychologically and physically. The
only way to recovery and relief is admitting and
confessing that wrongdoing. Just confess those
sins you are feeling guilty of, so that you can
have peace and joy which are Gods will for your
life.

PRAYER POINT: Humble yourself before the
Lord, and pray as you are led.

TOPIC: GO EXTRA MILE

_ BIBE TEXT: MATTHEW 14:16-30
16. But Jesus said to them, “They do not need
to go away. You give them something to eat.”
17. And they said to Him, “We have here only
five loaves and two fish.”
18. He said, “Bring them here to Me.”
19. Then He commanded the multitudes to sit
down on the grass. And He took the five loaves
and the two fish, and looking up to heaven, He
blessed and broke and gave the loaves to the
disciples; and the disciples gave to the
multitudes.
20. So they all ate and were filled, and they took
up twelve baskets full of the fragments that
remained.
21. Now those who had eaten were about five
thousand men, besides women and children.
22. Immediately Jesus made His disciples get
into the boat and go before Him to the other
side, while He sent the multitudes away.
23. And when He had sent the multitudes away,
He went up on the mountain by Himself to pray.
Now when evening came, He was alone there.
24. But the boat was now in the middle of the
sea, tossed by the waves, for the wind was
contrary.
25. Now in the fourth watch of the night Jesus
went to them, walking on the sea.
26. And when the disciples saw Him walking on
the sea, they were troubled, saying, “It is a
ghost!” And they cried out for fear.
27. But immediately Jesus spoke to them,
saying, “Be of good cheer! It is I; do not be
afraid.”
28. And Peter answered Him and said, “Lord, if it
is You, command me to come to You on the
water.”
29. So He said, “Come.” And when Peter had
come down out of the boat, he walked on the
water to go to Jesus.
30. But when he saw that the wind was
boisterous, he was afraid; and beginning to sink
he cried out, saying, “Lord, save me!”
Matthew 14:16-30 NKJV
GUIDE MESSAGE
True compassion is expressed by love in action.
In simple reasoning, the disciples were not wrong
to tell Jesus to send the multitude away (v.15).
But by faith, they were wrong. Jesus
understands our limit in helping ourselves. In
time of confusion of thought and hopelessness,
He brings solution from angles we least expected
help. It was not recorded that the multitude
requested for food, but the way they sat down to
eat shows that they were hungry. God will
satisfy your pressing needs. Notice how they
were all directed to sit down on the grass,
irrespective of their personalities. It takes
humility to receive special miracles from God.
God resists the proud and gives grace to the
humble (1Peter 5:5). In vs.22-23, we notice how
Jesus separated himself from the multitude for
personal reflections. He often made room in His
busy schedule to be alone with His father.
Develop the discipline of spending time alone
with God. It will build your spiritual life.
A good leader needs to be competent and
compassionate. Learning from Jesus, you dont
have any justification to abandon people whom
God has placed you in a position to help. Please
dont send them away. Settle them; especially
those that have been with you for a long time.
Learn also to make out time for retreat and
personal communion with God. If Jesus, with all
His work-load could do it, you can also do it. Let
this passage today influence your life decisions.
PRAYER: Help me heavenly father to do the
right thing at the right time.
HAPPY SUNDAY

GUIDE MESSAGE
Our text today begins with a call on the righteous
and upright to praise the Lord. It is clearly stated
in v.5 that God loves righteousness and justice.
Regrettably, some of our actions in our families,
places of work, states and entire country seem
to suggest that we hate righteousness and
justice. Those who humbly seek for mercy when
they are at the bottom of power, block the road
for mercy, when they get to the top. Our political
leaders cry against injustice when they are
cheated but ask people to accept injustice when
they benefit from it. The Psalmist pointed out in
v.12 what could be seen as the problem of
Nigeria today. The misconception that is
misleading our leaders is pointed out in (v.16).
Take a deep look at verse 17 and see why you
should not trust in military strength. Verses 18-19
give assurance of deliverance to those who fear
the Lord. God is in absolute control.
The only way to move forward as individuals and
as a nation is to allow the basic principles of
God to guide our actions. Justice and
righteousness must be allowed to reign. Do not
deprive any person of his or her right. Out
leaders hold our mandate and we should not
allow them to subject us to slavery. Because of
injustice, it seems Nigeria is no longer blessed
with resources but is cursed with it. Every leader
thinks about oil money just to favour those that
belong to his power entrusted area. This mind-
set is dangerous for our survival. God will come
to our rescue if we collectively and individually
call unto Him.

PRAYER: Lord, let your kingdom come and
your will be done in our families and nation.

Psalms 34:1-22 NKJV

GUIDE MESSAGE
For those of us who are familiar with our
communion liturgy, the first three verses of this
Psalm will be easily appreciated. Verse 8 asks us
to taste and see that the Lord is good. A
personal encounter with our Lord Jesus is the
only sure way to benefit from His numerous
blessings. Romans 12:2 makes us to know that
when we are transformed by the renewing of our
minds, we will prove what is good, acceptable,
and perfect will of God. If you love life and
desire to see many good days, you must learn to
keep your tongue from evil and your lips from
speaking deceit (vs.12-13). The Lord made your
ears to be open but your mouth closed, probably
to make you hear more than you speak. Everyone
should be quick to listen, slow to speak and slow
to become angry” (James 1:19). The same
epistle of James went further to expose the
dangers of uncontrolled tongue in chapter three.
The Lord is concerned for the lives of the
righteous but to those who do evil; He is against
them (vs.15-16).
Human insight, brilliance and wisdom are of no
help if the Lord is against it. The Christian faith
goes beyond knowing what others believe. It
requires ones personal relationship with Christ.
You must take a personal stand to be counted
as a believer. What you can do now is the only
sure influence you can have in your future. If you
believe, you will see the glory of God (John
11:40).

PRAYER: Heavenly Father, let me walk with
you all along my pilgrim journey.

1. Plead my cause, O Lord , with those who
strive with me; Fight against those who fight
against me.
2. Take hold of shield and buckler, And stand up
for my help.
3. Also draw out the spear, And stop those who
pursue me. Say to my soul, “I am your
salvation.”
4. Let those be put to shame and brought to
dishonor Who seek after my life; Let those be
turned back and brought to confusion Who plot
my hurt.
5. Let them be like chaff before the wind, And
let the angel of the Lord chase them.
6. Let their way be dark and slippery, And let the
angel of the Lord pursue them.
7. For without cause they have hidden their net
for me in a pit, Which they have dug without
cause for my life.
8. Let destruction come upon him unexpectedly,
And let his net that he has hidden catch himself;
Into that very destruction let him fall.
9. And my soul shall be joyful in the Lord ; It
shall rejoice in His salvation.
10. All my bones shall say, “ Lord , who is like
You, Delivering the poor from him who is too
strong for him, Yes, the poor and the needy from
him who plunders him?”
11. Fierce witnesses rise up; They ask me things
that I do not know.
12. They reward me evil for good, To the sorrow
of my soul.
13. But as for me, when they were sick, My
clothing was sackcloth; I humbled myself with
fasting; And my prayer would return to my own
heart.
14. I paced about as though he were my friend
or brother; I bowed down heavily, as one who
mourns for his mother.
15. But in my adversity they rejoiced And
gathered together; Attackers gathered against
me, And I did not know it; They tore at me and
did not cease;
16. With ungodly mockers at feasts They
gnashed at me with their teeth.
17. Lord, how long will You look on? Rescue me
from their destructions, My precious life from the
lions.
18. I will give You thanks in the great assembly;
I will praise You among many people.
19. Let them not rejoice over me who are
wrongfully my enemies; Nor let them wink with
the eye who hate me without a cause.
20. For they do not speak peace, But they devise
deceitful matters Against the quiet ones in the
land.
21. They also opened their mouth wide against
me, And said, “Aha, aha! Our eyes have seen it. ”
22. This You have seen, O Lord ; Do not keep
silence. O Lord, do not be far from me.
23. Stir up Yourself, and awake to my
vindication, To my cause, my God and my Lord.
24. Vindicate me, O Lord my God, according to
Your righteousness; And let them not rejoice
over me.
25. Let them not say in their hearts, “Ah, so we
would have it!” Let them not say, “We have
swallowed him up.”
26. Let them be ashamed and brought to mutual
confusion Who rejoice at my hurt; Let them be
clothed with shame and dishonor Who exalt
themselves against me.
27. Let them shout for joy and be glad, Who
favor my righteous cause; And let them say
continually, “Let the Lord be magnified, Who has
pleasure in the prosperity of His servant.”
28. And my tongue shall speak of Your
righteousness And of Your praise all the day
long.
Psalms 35:1-28 NKJV

GUIDE MESSAGE
In todays passage, we see the prayer of a person
who was troubled on all sides by his enemies:
his soul was being pursued, people were seeking
after his life; seeking to hurt him and had their
net in a pit against him. He therefore called upon
God to fight his battles, deliver him from his
enemies, and cause justice to triumph over
injustice, and righteousness over unrighteousness
.
Even though Christians are enjoined to forgive
their enemies and those who persecute them,
but in extreme cases, we can call on God to
deliver us from our enemies and execute His
righteous judgement on them. When God
executes vengeance upon the workers of evil, it
will deter others from embarking on such evil
enterprises. Ecclesiastes 8:11 clearly states:
Because the sentence against an evil work is not
executed speedily, therefore the heart of men is
fully set in them to do evil.
However we must balance the situations and be
led by the Holy Spirit in all we do. We should not
be quick to call on God to destroy our human
enemies, but we can call on God to deliver us
from their evil plots, and make them unable to
perform their wicked enterprises. Above all, we
should love our enemies, bless those who curse
us, do good to those who hate us and pray for
those who spitefully use us.

PRAYER: Oh Lord, please lead me not into
temptation, but fight all my battles in Jesus
Name. Amen

TOPIC: WICKED PEOPLE ARE BLIND FOLDED

BIBLE TEXT: PSALMS 36:1-12
1. An oracle within my heart concerning the
transgression of the wickedness : There is no fear of
God before his eyes.
2. For he flatters himself in his own eyes, When
he finds out his iniquity and when he hates.
3. The words of his mouth are wickedness and
deceit; He has ceased to be wise and to do
good.
4. He devises wickedness on his bed; He sets
himself in a way that is not good; He does not
abhor evil.
5. Your mercy, O Lord , is in the heavens; Your
faithfulness reaches to the clouds.
6. Your righteousness is like the great
mountains; Your judgments are a great deep; O
Lord , You preserve man and beast.
7. How precious is Your lovingkindness, O God!
Therefore the children of men put their trust
under the shadow of Your wings.
8. They are abundantly satisfied with the fullness
of Your house, And You give them drink from the
river of Your pleasures.
9. For with You is the fountain of life; In Your
light we see light.
10. Oh, continue Your lovingkindness to those
who know You, And Your righteousness to the
upright in heart.
11. Let not the foot of pride come against me,
And let not the hand of the wicked drive me
away.
12. There the workers of iniquity have fallen;
They have been cast down and are not able to
rise.
Psalms 36:1-12 NKJV

GUIDE MESSAGE
Todays passage contrasts the picture of the
wicked with the merciful God. The wicked is
blindfolded and cannot see his wicked ways. He
flatters and gives himself false hope. He sees
his atrocities right. He hates and repels all who
constructively criticise and tell him the truth. On
the other hand, he welcomes those who flatter
him and who sing his praises.
This is the situation in our country today where
rulers and politicians are blindfolded. Some steal
and mismanage public funds, while some give
false contracts all because they are blind.
This scenario has crept into the church where
some General overseers, senior pastors, Bishops
and general superintendents are worshipped.
They hate the truth, but encourage everything
that will enhance their political interests in the
church. In that place where you are a leader, do
you like the truth even when it is against you, or
do you like the praises of men all through?
Verses 5-10 on the contrary tell us about the
mercy, loving-kindness, faithfulness, generosity
and righteousness of God. Because of all these
virtues of God, you can put your trust under the
shadow of Gods wings and be saved, and
satisfied with food, drink and pleasure.

PRAYER: Search me oh God and know my
heart; try me and know my thoughts. And see if
there be any wicked way in me, and lead me in
the way everlasting

give you the desires of your heart.

7. Rest in the Lord , and wait patiently for Him;
Do not fret because of him who prospers in his
way, Because of the man who brings wicked

8. Cease from anger, and forsake wrath; Do not
fret— it only causes harm.
9. For evildoers shall be cut off; But those who
wait on the Lord , They shall inherit the earth.

no more; Indeed, you will look carefully for his
place, But it shall be no more.
11. But the meek shall inherit the earth, And

peace.
12. The wicked plots against the just, And
gnashes at him with his teeth.
13. The Lord laughs at him, For He sees that his
day is coming.
14. The wicked have drawn the sword And have
bent their bow, To cast down the poor and
needy, To slay those who are of upright conduct.
15. Their sword shall enter their own heart, And

And his tongue talks of justice.
31. The law of his God is in his heart; None of
his steps shall slide.
32. The wicked watches the righteous, And
seeks to slay him.
33. The Lord will not leave him in his hand, Nor
condemn him when he is judged.
34. Wait on the Lord , And keep His way, And He
shall exalt you to inherit the land; When the
wicked are cut off, you shall see it.
35. I have seen the wicked in great power, And
spreading himself like a native green tree.
36. Yet he passed away, and behold, he was no
more; Indeed I sought him, but he could not be
found.
37. Mark the blameless man, and observe the
upright; For the future of that man is peace.
38. But the transgressors shall be destroyed
together; The future of the wicked shall be cut
off.
39. But the salvation of the righteous is from the
Lord ; He is their strength in the time of trouble.
40. And the Lord shall help them and deliver
them; He shall deliver them from the wicked,
And save them, Because they trust in Him.
Psalms 37:1-40 NKJV

GUIDE MESSAGE
Some of the things we see on earth today, give
us the false impression that lawlessness,
wickedness and unrighteousness are more to be
desired than righteousness and truth. On many
occasions in Nigeria, when motorists queue up in
traffic, waiting for their turn to move, some
unscrupulous and undisciplined drivers would
move into the wrong lanes and proceed on their
journey. On some occasions, when they do this
and meet the police, they offer them some
money and the police would allow them go their
way and get to their destinations earlier than the
law-abiding citizens on queue.
Many brilliant students are denied admissions
into universities because some operators of
JAMB exam centres hack the internet and give
answers to indolent students who pay them to
cheat.
May students sort their ways out in the
universities and come out wonderful grades,
while other hardworking students are frustrated.
These are the products of the wickedness of
men. Some righteous persons are tempted to join
the wicked. However, verse one enjoins us not to
fret because of evil doers, or be envious of the
workers of iniquity because they shall soon be
cut down like the grass.
The rejoicing of the wicked is for a short while.
Very soon you will look for the wicked and his ill-
gotten wealth and will see them no more. Delight
yourself in God, and He will give you the desires
of your heart.

PRAYER: Oh God help me to be steadfast and
unmovable. Make me to abound in righteousness
and never to envy the evil doers.

TOPIC: SIN: A DESTRUCTIVE CHEMICAL

BIBLE TEXT: PSALMS 38:1-22
1. O Lord , do not rebuke me in Your wrath, Nor
chasten me in Your hot displeasure!
2. For Your arrows pierce me deeply, And Your
hand presses me down.
3. There is no soundness in my flesh Because of
Your anger, Nor any health in my bones Because
of my sin.
4. For my iniquities have gone over my head;
Like a heavy burden they are too heavy for me.
5. My wounds are foul and festering Because of
my foolishness.
6. I am troubled, I am bowed down greatly; I go
mourning all the day long.
7. For my loins are full of inflammation, And
there is no soundness in my flesh.
8. I am feeble and severely broken; I groan
because of the turmoil of my heart.
9. Lord, all my desire is before You; And my
sighing is not hidden from You.
10. My heart pants, my strength fails me; As for
the light of my eyes, it also has gone from me.
11. My loved ones and my friends stand aloof
from my plague, And my relatives stand afar off.
12. Those also who seek my life lay snares for
me; Those who seek my hurt speak of
destruction, And plan deception all the day long.
13. But I, like a deaf man, do not hear; And I am
like a mute who does not open his mouth.
14. Thus I am like a man who does not hear, And
in whose mouth is no response.
15. For in You, O Lord , I hope; You will hear, O
Lord my God.
16. For I said, “Hear me, lest they rejoice over
me, Lest, when my foot slips, they exalt
themselves against me.”
17. For I am ready to fall, And my sorrow is
continually before me.
18. For I will declare my iniquity; I will be in
anguish over my sin.
19. But my enemies are vigorous, and they are
strong; And those who hate me wrongfully have
multiplied.
20. Those also who render evil for good, They
are my adversaries, because I follow what is
good.
21. Do not forsake me, O Lord ; O my God, be
not far from me!
22. Make haste to help me, O Lord, my salvation!
Psalms 38:1-22 NKJV

GUIDE MESSAGE
David was in serious pain and anguish here. The
arrows of God were upon him and Gods anger
brought sickness to him. David saw all these
anguish and calamity as a result of his sins
against God. (v.5). David also acknowledged that
he deserved to be disciplined for his sins. He
however pleaded with God to temper discipline
with mercy. From his experience, it is clear that
some calamities, sicknesses and even demonic
attacks could be caused by sin. When a person
lives in sin, he opens the door of his life to
satan, demon- induced sicknesses and attack.
In verse 21, David asks God not to abandon him.
From this verse, it is clear that sin can make
God to abandon a man. No wonder the Bible
says that our sins have made a separation
between us and God (Isaiah 59:1-4).
You can close the door of your life to demonic
attack, manipulations, sicknesses, pain, anguish
and sorrow by saying No to sin, and Yes to
righteousness. From now, reject all those sins
that easily entangle you. Dont deceive yourself;
dont rationalize your sin.
When you have repented of your sin, God will
have mercy on you because a broken and a
contrite heart, God will not despise (Read Psalm
51:17).

PRAYER: Oh God restore to me the joy of
your salvation, and uphold me by your generous
Spirit.

TOPIC: I WILL ARISE!

BIBLE TEXT: LUKE 15:11-32
11. Then He said: “A certain man had two sons.
12. And the younger of them said to his father,
‘Father, give me the portion of goods that falls to
me. ’ So he divided to them his livelihood.
13. And not many days after, the younger son
gathered all together, journeyed to a far country,
and there wasted his possessions with prodigal
living.
14. But when he had spent all, there arose a
severe famine in that land, and he began to be in
want.
15. Then he went and joined himself to a citizen
of that country, and he sent him into his fields to
feed swine.
16. And he would gladly have filled his stomach
with the pods that the swine ate, and no one
gave him anything.
17. “But when he came to himself, he said, ‘How
many of my father’s hired servants have bread
enough and to spare, and I perish with hunger!
18. I will arise and go to my father, and will say
to him, “Father, I have sinned against heaven and
before you,
19. and I am no longer worthy to be called your
son. Make me like one of your hired servants.” ’
20. “And he arose and came to his father. But
when he was still a great way off, his father saw
him and had compassion, and ran and fell on his
neck and kissed him.
21. And the son said to him, ‘Father, I have
sinned against heaven and in your sight, and am
no longer worthy to be called your son.’
22. “But the father said to his servants, ‘Bring
out the best robe and put it on him, and put a
ring on his hand and sandals on his feet.
23. And bring the fatted calf here and kill it, and
let us eat and be merry;
24. for this my son was dead and is alive again;
he was lost and is found.’ And they began to be
merry.
25. “Now his older son was in the field. And as
he came and drew near to the house, he heard
music and dancing.
26. So he called one of the servants and asked
what these things meant.
27. And he said to him, ‘Your brother has come,
and because he has received him safe and
sound, your father has killed the fatted calf.’
28. “But he was angry and would not go in.
Therefore his father came out and pleaded with
him.
29. So he answered and said to his father, ‘Lo,
these many years I have been serving you; I
never transgressed your commandment at any
time; and yet you never gave me a young goat,
that I might make merry with my friends.
30. But as soon as this son of yours came, who
has devoured your livelihood with harlots, you
killed the fatted calf for him.’
31. “And he said to him, ‘Son, you are always
with me, and all that I have is yours.
32. It was right that we should make merry and
be glad, for your brother was dead and is alive
again, and was lost and is found.’ ”
Luke 15:11-32 NKJV

GUIDE MESSAGE
From our passage today, a mans younger son
who ought to be under his fathers roof, guidance
and protection, asks for his own portion of the
fathers goods, even though his father was still
alive. In the same way, we Christians, like sheep,
are under the care and protection of God, our
shepherd. But many times, we bolt away from
Gods guidance and protection just like the
prodigal.
Many go into fornication, adultery, drunkenness,
smoking, cheating, etc. Once a Christian departs
from the presence of God, he becomes exposed
to danger, hunger, harm, demonic attack, failure,
etc., as he loses Gods protection. The only
solution to this situation is true repentance and a
quick decision to return to Christ. At verse 18,
the prodigal son said I will arise and go to my
father, and I will say to him Father, I have sinned
against heaven and before you.
Let us pause at this juncture and have a look at
our lives. Have you been living in sin despite the
fact that you go to church? Are your garments
spotless; are they white as snow, are you
washed in the blood of the lamb? In verses
21-22, the way the father of the prodigal son
receives him shows how God receives a sinner
who repents. No matter what you have done,
God is ready to receive you once you repent.

PRAYER: Sing from Sacred Songs and Solos
No. 23 stanza 2/Chorus and pray with it.
Happy Sunday......
