SPEAK BLESSINGS OVER YOUR FAMILY

†              † 

                       
                Abraham, Isaac and Jacob released God’s blessings upon their children by laying hands on them and speaking forth the blessings.

   As it sttes in  (Genesis 27:27–29, 38–40; 48:14–16)

        In the New Testament, the apostles pronounced blessings over the churches they were preaching too. And in the church in Philippi, Paul declared, “And my God shall supply all your need according to His riches in glory by Christ Jesus.”

       As it States in (Philippians 4:19)

       John released a powerful blessing upon Gaius when he said, “Beloved, I pray that you may prosper in all things and be in health, just as your soul prospers.”

                               As it states in (3 John 1:2)

          Even Jesus pronounced a blessing of deliverance on the daughter of the Syro-Phoenician woman “go your way; the demon has gone out of your daughter”.

                   As it states in (Mark 7:29) 
 

            My friend, bless your loved ones. Declare over them, “The Lord blesses you and surrounds you with His favor as with a shield.” Speak forth your own blessings by declaring, “Thank You Lord, You over supply my needs and I am in excellent health!” AMEN

   Psalm 5:12
                          For You, O Lord, will bless the righteous; with favor You will surround him as with a shield.

And God said, Verily I say unto you, Except ye be converted, and become as little children, ye shall not enter into the kingdom of heaven. . Whosoever therefore shall humble himself as this little child, the same is greatest in the kingdom of heaven.

Mrs. P's Haven of Refuge Devotional for today is:

IT SHALL NOT COME NEAR YOU

†              † 

                       
                If Your doctor or insurance agent may ask you, “Do you have a family history of cancer?” If you say, “Yes,” they will probably tell you that you might get some form of cancer too.

        Now, if you are without God's spirit within your heart, you would probably agree with them and start worrying about your health. But you are not without God! In fact, His Word tells you, “A thousand may fall at your side, and ten thousand at your right hand; but it shall not come near you.” Therefore, even if you have a family history of cancer, and your family members have died of cancer, you can have the confidence to declare that it will not come near you!

    A friend of mine had this attitude, and after a thorough medical check-up, the doctor was surprised and told her that she did not have high blood pressure or heart disease, although these two conditions have plagued her father and siblings. You see, her mother had already firmly declared that no deadly, family-related disease would come near her.

        Praise God for this mother’s trust in God’s Word because we are the generation after her! In fact, after this mother told me about the results of her check-up, I randomly opened my Bible only to read about Rahab the harlot who by faith “did not perish with those who did not believe”.

                                 As it says in     (Hebrews 11:31)

      Now firmly believe that God wants you to know that even though you are in this world, you are not of this world. You belong to Him. You don’t have to get caught in dire situations along with the people of the world. Because God is on your side, “He shall deliver you from the snare of the fowler and from the perilous pestilence”.

                      As it says in (Psalm 91:3)

    Even when it comes to generational diseases, you can boldly declare, “That disease stops here!” because you have God and His Word. And when you believe God and His Word, you will see His promises come to pass for you“A thousand may fall at your side, and ten thousand at your right hand; but it shall not come near you”!

Psalm 91:7
A thousand may fall at your side, and ten thousand at your right hand; but it shall not come near you.

Stay on course

†              † 

                       
                Watch out for negative thoughts and feelings, which could undermine not only your faith but righteousness.  It is imperative that you strive to maintain purity of the soul in order to walk in the Spirit. 
              This is a choice.  When you choose to activate self-control, you will not regret your decision.  Stay focused, and refuse to be distracted with the chaos around you, says the Lord.  Trust the LORD to help you stay on course,  AMEN

  Philippians 4:8
                                     Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things.

Trust in The Lord always

†              † 

                       
                Believe and trust in in the Lord For, for he know's you and he know's who you are. Not only does he know you but he know's who is set against you. And, the Lord also know's what the desire of the enemy  has against you.

      But the Lord's desire for you is to excel in greatness, to have victory and to be blessed beyond comparison. Also, the Lord's desire is to equip you with the blessing of victory in this season so that you may know that GOD is a greater dimension than you have ever known before. So, listen and watch, and you shall see the goodness of the Lord in the land you live in this very season.

Surely, healing will take place

†              † 

                       
                  While waiting for the manifestation of their healing, some people find it hard to believe that Jesus really took their sicknesses and pains, just as He took their sin and shame. If you are one of them, don’t feel condemned.

       Your Father in heaven understands. That is why He put the word “surely” there when He said, “Surely, My Son has borne your sicknesses and carried your pains.” 

       Are you or your loved ones suffering some sickness or pain right now? Surely our Lord Jesus has borne your sicknesses and carried your pains. And as you believe this truth, surely, your healing and breakthrough will come!  AMEN..

Mrs. P's Haven of Refuge Devotional for today is:

GOD IS NOT ON A SIN HUNT

†              † 

                       
                When you think of Sodom and Gomorrah, what comes to your mind? God’s wrath and fiery judgment? The truth is that God was not all out to judge the people of Sodom and Gomorrah. He was not on a sin hunt. He was, in fact, on a righteousness hunt!

         This is evident because if God was on a sin hunt, He would not have allowed anyone to stop Him. But we know that He let Abraham in on what He was about to do and even allowed Abraham to entreat Him.

       Abraham asked God if He would destroy Sodom if He could find 50 righteous people there. God’s reply was, “If I find in Sodom fifty righteous within the city, then I will spare all the place for their sakes.”         

                       as it says in (Genesis 18:26)


    Abraham then asked God if He would destroy the city if there were only 45…40…30…or 10 righteous. And each time, God’s reply was that He would spare the place for the sake of the righteous.

             Abraham stopped at 10. If he had gone down to just one righteous man, I believe God’s reply would have been the same because He was on a righteousness hunt.

          Now, if God was not all out to destroy then, how much more today, when God has already judged our sins in the body of His Son? At the cross, Jesus exhausted all of God’s fiery judgments until there was no more fire of God’s wrath left for us!

       Today, God is not judging us for our sins because He has found the righteousness of the one Man Christ Jesus. So do not let anyone tell you that God judges you for your sins and punishes you with cancer, car accidents, business failures or brokenness. God would be unjust if He punished the same sins twice in Jesus’ body and then in yours.

          God is not out to judge you but bless you today, not because you deserve it, but because Jesus was judged and punished in your place!  AMEN

1 Thessalonians 5:9
                                               For God did not appoint us to wrath, but to obtain salvation through our Lord Jesus Christ,

BELIEVE AND ACT ON THE NEW COVENANT
†              †                      
               
        Ever wonder why two people can hear the same thing and yet have very different responses? For one, what is said makes him afraid and discouraged. For the other, his heart is so filled with faith that he dares to come against the devil and what he is doing.
        In the Valley of Elah, Goliath the Philistine giant taunted the armies of Israel for 40 days. When David came on the scene, he heard the same mockings of Goliath that the rest of the Israelites heard. But somehow, those same words which caused fear in the soldiers angered David. What did David know or see that the others failed to see?
          
     David knew that he had a covenant with God. Now, King Saul and all the soldiers with him that day also had the same covenant with God, but only David believed the covenant. And he acted on his belief. So God caused his giant to come tumbling down.
          If David had such a great victory even though he was under the old covenant, how much more you and I who are under the new covenant! Today, God is asking, “Where are my Davids who will believe the new covenant?”
        What is the new covenant? It is the covenant of grace. And grace means unmerited, undeserved, unearned favor. God wants us to know that He has cut this covenant with us through Christ our representative. And according to the covenant, we have His undeserved favor. We are blessed because Jesus took our beating. Because of what Jesus has done on the cross, we have victory over every giant.
        Isn’t that good news? Today, God wants you to stand before your “giant” and declare that in spite of what you are going through, in spite of what is happening, you believe that God is for you because of what Jesus has done for you.
        And then, before your very eyes, you will see the giants of accusation, intimidation, condemnation, disease and debt fall flat before you!

    1 Samuel 17:45
                                 Then David said to the Philistine, “… I come to you in the name of the Lord of hosts, the God of the armies of Israel, whom you have defied.

Mrs. P's Haven of Refuge Devotional for today is:

GOD IS BEHIND YOUR INCREASE

†              † 

                       
                Sometimes, we think that the increase or success which we enjoy is the result of our own efforts or hard work. Now, I am not advocating laziness, but the truth is that God is the one behind our increase.

     We see this truth when we read the story of Ruth, a young widow from Moab, who worked as a gleaner in a barley field from morning till evening. Now, we could attribute the entire ephah a substantial 10-day supply of barley she collected at the end of the day to her hard work. After all, she did work all day in the field.

          But when we read about how Boaz, the owner of the field, had secretly told his reapers to “let grain from the bundles fall purposely for her; leave it that she may glean” (Ruth 2:16), we know that it was because of Boaz’s intervention that Ruth ended up with so much.

              I believe that Jesus, our heavenly Boaz, does the same thing for us today. He causes people to favor us and “drop” blessings on us because He loves us. Then, He causes us to “pick up” these blessings. Often, it happens so seemingly naturally we forget that it is the Lord who has blessed us with the increases.

         A church member who runs a florist business shared that once, God caused someone who needed a lot of flowers to “drop” a huge order with her. She also shared that she was hardly making any money even though she had been working hard for many years. But when she became a Christian, she began to confess every day that God’s favor was on her. Within a few weeks, that big order worth S$14,000 came in. Only God could have given her such a  supernatural increase.

          My friend, your hard work is not behind your increase. The Bible tells us that it is “God who gives the increase”. He is the one who is behind your increase and He delights in blessing you because He loves you!   AMEN

   1 Corinthians 3:7
                                        So then neither he who plants is anything, nor he who waters, but God who gives the increase.                                                      


 † © 2019 Mrs. P's Haven of Refuge  †
†Matthew 18:3-4†

And God said, Verily I say unto you, Except ye be converted, and become as little children, ye shall not enter into the kingdom of heaven. . Whosoever therefore shall humble himself as this little child, the same is greatest in the kingdom of heaven.

Mrs. P's Haven of Refuge Devotional for today is:

JESUS, THE MEASURE OF YOUR RIGHTEOUSNESS

†              † 

                       
                God wants us to seek His righteousness and not our own righteousness. When we seek our own righteousness, we will always end up feeling miserable because we can never be righteous by our works, no matter how hard we try.

      That is why our loving Father wants us to remember that righteousness is not right behavior but a person Jesus, and that we have “become the righteousness of God in Him”.

       There was a lady who, before she started going to church, attempted to establish her own righteousness by confessing all her sins to “clean” herself up. But she found that the more she confessed her sins, the more sins she discovered in herself.

           She became guilt-ridden and miserable. Feeling stressed out and weary of confessing her sins all the time, so she quit going to church that she was attending. In fact, she never stepped into another church again for the next 10 years.

       One day, someone gave her a message tape entitled You Will Never Lose God’s Everlasting Righteousness Given To You and she started listening to it. Once she learnt that Jesus was the measure of her righteousness and acceptance before God, she began to seek God’s righteousness by seeing Christ as her righteousness.

          Before long, peace and joy came flooding back into her life, and  today, she worships in church once again, She testified of how God has supernaturally healed her of a long-term medical condition she had. Even her husband, once balding, found hair sprouting supernaturally! God was adding all these things to her according to His promise “But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added to you”. (Matthew 6:33)

        So my friend, seeking God’s righteousness means that you see Jesus as someone who knew no sin but became sin for you, so that He could give you His righteousness and make you the righteousness of God in Him! As you proclaim daily the truth that you are the righteousness of God in Christ, you will see “all these things” added to you without even asking for them!
AMEN...

2 Corinthians 5:21
                                        For He made Him who knew no sin to be sin for us, that we might become the righteousness of God in Him.

Mrs. P's Haven of Refuge Devotional for today is:

WORSHIP GOD AS YOU ARE

†              †

                       
                Have you been to a worship service where you stood with your hands raised, ready to worship God, only to hear the worship leader say, “Before we worship God, let’s all search our hearts”? Then, as you search your heart, before long, you dig up something that you don’t like. The next thing you know, your hands are no longer raised and soon, you find yourself sitting down you don’t feel good worshiping God any more.

          My friend, I have good news for you. Come and worship Him as you are. Come into God’s presence Jesus-conscious, forgiveness-conscious and grace-conscious! Come into God’s presence bringing only Jesus the spotless Lamb of God as your offering.

          Your worshiping God is like the times God’s people in the Old Testament brought their offerings to the priest. The priest examined the animal sacrifice to ensure that it was without blemish. The priest did not examine the sinner. If the animal was without blemish, God accepted the animal sacrifice as well as the offerer who brought the animal.

            So when you come into God’s presence, don’t do any self-examination and be discouraged when you find faults in your life. God does not examine you. He sees you through the full value, and all the loveliness and acceptance of His Son.

     He sees you holy and without blemish! and Remember the woman who was referred to as a sinner, possibly a prostitute? She went to the house of the Pharisee who was hosting Jesus and wiped Jesus’ feet with her hair. (Luke 7:36–50) That was her act of worship.

               She came to Him as she was. Yes, she knew that she had sinned, but she worshiped Jesus first because of who He is,  she was Jesus-conscious. Then, she heard Jesus say, “Your sins are forgiven.” (Luke 7:48) She received the forgiveness she needed from Him.

Whatever you need from the Savior, come to Him as you are. Worship Him for who He is and then you will hear Him say, “Go your way. Your restoration has come. Your provision is here. You are healed. You have been made whole!”

Ephesians 5:27
                                 that He might present her to Himself a glorious church, not having spot or wrinkle or any such thing, but that she should be holy and without blemish.

The coming Change

†              †

                       
                Even though change is sometimes frightening and difficult, you will begin to see the advantage in the changes that are now taking place.  Things that are no longer relevant or advantageous to your walk in the Spirit will suddenly be removed.  And, you will be relieved and free rather than experiencing a sense of regret or loss.  Set your heart to be willing to let go, says the Lord, AMEN.

                                         To everything there is a season, a time for every purpose under heaven: a time to be born, and a time to die; a time to plant, and a time to pluck what is planted; a time to kill, and a time to heal; a time to break down, and a time to build up; a time to weep, and a time to laugh; a time to mourn, and a time to dance; a time to cast away stones, and a time to gather stones; a time to embrace, and a time to refrain from embracing; a time to gain, and a time to lose; a time to keep, and a time to throw away; a time to tear, and a time to sew; a time to keep silence, and a time to speak; a time to love, and a time to hate; a time of war, and a time of peace.

Mrs. P's Haven of Refuge Devotional for today is:

Your TOUCH is a Blessing from the LORD

†              † 

                       
                Do you remember the story of King Midas and his golden touch? He made a wish that everything he touched would turn into gold, and his wish came to pass. He touched his food, the trees in his garden and his palace, and they all turned into gold! Then, he hugged his daughter whom he loved very much and she immediately turned into a gold statue!

               God’s way is better and it has no side effects. He wants to bless everything you touch. The Bible says, “The Lord will command the blessing on you…and in all to which you set your hand…" This means that whatever you touch, whatever you set your hands to, God will command the blessing upon it, be it a person, thing or business.

         So if you touch your child, he is blessed. If you touch your guitar, anointed music flows forth. If you touch your business, it prospers. When you touch a sick person, he gets healed. When you touch someone who is facing lack, his needs are met.

          In the Bible, everything that Jesus touched prospered. He touched the eyes of two blind men and their eyes were opened. (Matthew 9:28–30) He touched the open coffin of a widow’s son, and the young man sat up and began to speak. (Luke 7:12–15) He touched the leper and the leprosy departed. (Mark 1:40–42) Under the old covenant laws, no one was supposed to touch a leper as lepers were considered unclean.

              If you touched the unclean, you became unclean. But Jesus touched the leper and the unclean became clean!

        Everyone whom Jesus touched received a blessing. And because Jesus lives in you by His Spirit, what you touch will be blessed too. He paid the price for you to have this blessing. His loving hands which imparted blessings to so many were nailed to the cross so that today, God can command His blessing on all to which you set your hands!

   Deuteronomy 28:8
                                              “The Lord will command the blessing on you in your storehouses and in all to which you set your hand on, and He will bless you in the land which the Lord your God is giving you.

Mrs. P's Haven of Refuge Devotional for today is:

YOUR SINS WILL NOT BE SCREENED IN HEAVEN

†              †

                       
                When Pastor Joseph Prince was a young Christian growing up in Singapore, he read a little tract entitled This Was Your Life. In that tract, it said that when you get to heaven, God will replay your entire life, including all your sins, on a huge video screen for all the angels and other saints to watch!

            The idea that God was making such a video of anyone's life with the intention of screening it for everyone to watch could make you feel awful and condemned before God. How could anyone  ever stand boldly in His presence? And how could  anyone going to face their loved ones and Christian friends in heaven?

         You would be a nervous wreck, thinking about all of your sins that God was recording down, until you read this in the Bible:

 “Blessed is the man to whom the Lord shall not impute sin.”      

                                                   (Romans 4:8)


        Hallelujah! you would jump for joy when you found out that God was not counting your sins against you, and that He has given you something called “non-imputation of sins”!


     My friend, the reason that God does not impute any of our sins to us is that He has already imputed all of them to the body of His Son Jesus when He hung on the cross 2,000 years ago. Not only that, when God punished His Son for our sins, He caused the curse of the law to fall stroke by stroke upon Jesus’ entire body until every curse had been fully satisfied.

          That is why we have been redeemed from the curse of the law.

                                        (Galatians 3:13)

       That is why, instead of imputing sin to us, God imputes righteousness!

        God wants us to know that our sins and lawless deeds He will remember no more. The words “no more” in the original Greek text carry a strong double-negative meaning. In other words, God is saying, “No way, by no means, will I ever remember your sins again!”

            And since God says that He will remember your sins no more, why do you still remember them? Or for that matter, your spouse’s or neighbor’s sins? God does not want you to be conscious of sins because He is not. So rejoice! Come to Him boldly and expect Him to show you mercy and grace because He remembers your sins no more!

Hebrews 10:17
                                    then He adds, “Their sins and their lawless deeds I will remember no more.”

 Righteousness, Peace And Joy

†              † 

                       
                If we are supposed to seek first the kingdom of God every day, then we should know what the kingdom of God is in the first place, don't think that the kingdom of God was the mission fields and that to seek it meant doing missionary work.

           So to seek first God’s kingdom means to make it a priority every day to have your inner man flowing with righteousness, peace and joy in the Holy Spirit.

        Righteousness is not your own righteousness based on what you do. It is not good works. It is a gift from Jesus who is your righteousness,  God wants you to be established in the truth that you are the righteousness of God in Christ.

            “Peace be with you” were the words that Jesus spoke to His disciples when He appeared before them after His resurrection. He also showed them His pierced hands and side. God wants you to know that His Son’s finished work has given you peace. Your conscience can be at rest because your sin debt has been settled. You have peace with God and the peace of God.

           Joy will come into your heart when you see Jesus in the scriptures, worship songs or anointed preaching. It is the same joy from the Holy Spirit which filled the disciples’ hearts when they saw Jesus, His hands and His side.

        So every day, make it a priority to see yourself righteous in Christ. Don’t be conscious of your sins. Instead, be conscious of your righteousness. And whether you are reading your Bible or listening to anointed preaching, see Jesus with His pierced hands and side, which speak of His finished work. See all your sins forgiven, and you will flow with peace and joy. When you do this, you are seeking the kingdom of God!  AMEN

   Romans 14:17     
                            The kingdom of God is not eating and drinking, but righteousness and peace and joy in the Holy Spirit.

Mrs. P's Haven of Refuge Devotional for today is:

SEEK GOD’S KINGDOM AND HE WILL SOLVE YOUR PROBLEMS

†              † 

                       
                Are you troubled by many things today? For example, are you concerned about your rebellious teenager? Perhaps you see him as your problem, so you do your best to discipline him, only to end up with a heart full of worries and pain. And he is no better!

        God says to you, “Don’t focus on controlling your rebellious teenager. Instead, seek first My kingdom, which is righteousness, peace and joy in the Holy Spirit. Be conscious of the righteousness you have as a gift from My Son. Keep your inner man flowing with My peace and joy, and I will take care of your child.”

         We tend to think that the people around us are the problem. When we don’t get the promotion we want, we blame our bosses and colleagues. When we lose our temper, we blame our wives and kids. However, God wants us to stop looking outside and to start looking within because His kingdom is within us.

        The abundance of the kingdom of God is already inside you. As you seek first God’s kingdom, and follow His righteousness, peace and joy, the abundance within you will flow out and become a reality in your circumstances.

        You will find that God has not only taken care of what is troubling you, but has also added blessings to you, be it a promotion, well-behaved kids or a loving wife.

        You may say,  how do I keep my inner man flowing with righteousness, peace and joy?”

         Be conscious of your righteousness in Christ. Don’t be conscious of your sins and problems. Listen to anointed sermons that remind you of how righteous you are because of the perfect sacrifice of Christ. Peace and joy flow when you know that all your sins have been forgiven because of Jesus’ finished work.

      So the next time something troubles you, don’t focus on correcting the problem. Instead, seek first God’s kingdom and His righteousness. Make it a priority to have your inner man flowing with His peace and joy, and He will take care of that problem for you!  AMEN

   Romans 14:17
…the kingdom of God is not eating and drinking, but righteousness and peace and joy in the Holy Spirit.

REDEEMED FROM EVERY TYPE OF SICKNESS

†              † 


                       
                The One who cleansed lepers, opened blind eyes and made the lame to walk took your sins, sicknesses and every curse when He hung on Calvary’s tree. The curses that were meant for you because of your sins fell on Him instead. He was cursed in your place to redeem you from every curse that comes as a result of breaking God’s laws.

        What are these curses? They are listed in Deuteronomy 28. It is a long and detailed list. Don’t get frightened when you read the curses, but rejoice because Christ has redeemed you from every single one of them, including those curses of sicknesses!

        Are you stricken with tuberculosis, fever or inflammation? (Deuteronomy 28:22) Christ has redeemed you from every one of these conditions!

       Do you have painful boils, tumors or an itch which doctors say cannot be healed? (Deuteronomy 28:27) Christ has redeemed you from every one of these conditions!

     Perhaps yours is a serious and prolonged sickness. (Deuteronomy 28:59) It doesn’t matter. Christ has redeemed you from every prolonged sickness!

        You may say, but what about my disease? It is not covered in Deuteronomy 28. Did Jesus forget my disease?” No, His work is perfect! Look at Deuteronomy 28:61: “Also every sickness and every plague, which is not written in this Book of the Law, will the Lord bring upon you until you are destroyed.” That covers everything.

         So if Christ has redeemed you from this curse, then He has redeemed you from every type of sickness! I don’t care what new type of sickness the world discovers because Christ has redeemed us from every type of sickness!

         Now, if you have a particular sickness, say, “This (name the sickness) is part of the curse of the law. But Galatians 3:13 says that Christ has redeemed me from the curse of the law. Therefore, I have been redeemed from (name the sickness)!” Believe and confess that every day, and as surely as Jesus took every curse of sickness, your healing will break forth!

   Galatians 3:13
                                   Christ has redeemed us from the curse of the law, having become a curse for us (for it is written, “Cursed is everyone who hangs on a tree”),

Mrs. P's Haven of Refuge Devotional for today is:

GOD WANTS YOU FREE FROM WORRIES

† †

Is your heart full of worries about your health, finances, family or future? Even when all is well, some people still worry because they have heard others say, “You should worry when everything is peaceful because something is wrong when the devil leaves you alone.” So they worry even when there is nothing to worry about!

But Jesus does not want you to worry about what you will eat or drink, or about your body and what you will put on your back. He tells you not to worry about your daily provisions because God, who is your heavenly Father, knows that you need all these things and He wants to add these things to you.

God is the same God who took care of the children of Israel in the wilderness, feeding them with manna every day for 40 years Under His care, His people had no lack. When the people wanted meat for dinner, He simply rained quails on them.

The children of Israel only had to pick them up. If they had gone to look for meat themselves, they probably would not have found any in the desert.

The problem with us today is that we think that we must do something to help ourselves. Some of us may even think that it is easy for Jesus to say, “Don’t worry. Take no thought for your life,” because He does not understand the problems we face in life.

But the truth is that Jesus understands the problems we face in life. In fact, He faced what I would call the “final problem”—death.

Death is the “final problem” because it puts an end to all our other problems. Jesus faced death at the cross, conquered it and rose from the dead. And because He conquered the problem of problems, we can trust Him when He tells us not to worry.

Matthew 6:25
“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?

GOD WANTS TO SET YOU UP FOR A BLESSING

†              †
                  
              
        Have you ever wondered why, in some Bible stories, God asked the people to give what little they had to Him? It may appear cruel, but the truth is that God was setting them up for a blessing! God’s way is to use whatever we have, and multiply it back to us once we put it in His hands.

           The widow of Zarephath had only a handful of flour and a little oil to make one last meal for her son and herself before they faced starvation. But she trusted God and used a portion of the little that she had to make a cake for the prophet Elijah. And God rewarded her by making sure that her bin of flour was not used up and her jar of oil did not run dry until the drought ended.

       Similarly, the boy who gave his little lunch of five loaves and two small fish to Jesus not only ate well, but he also saw it being used to feed more than 5,000 people with 12 baskets full of leftovers! 
 
               Whenever we give what little we have to God, whether it is money, time or energy, it opens up our hearts so that God can fill us up with more. And when we give our lives to God, we can trust Him to make things right for us and to be the rewarder of our faith.

            When Ruth, a childless Moabite widow, left the comfort of her home to follow her mother-in-law Naomi and the God of Israel back to a foreign land, she was given a full reward by the Lord. God gave Ruth protection and ensured that she was well-provided for through Boaz, a wealthy relative who took on the role of kinsman-redeemer for her and Naomi.
                                                                
        So as you trust God with what you have today, know that He loves you and is setting you up for more blessings. So expect to see even more of His provision and abundance in the days to come!  AMEN..

   Ruth 2:12
                      The Lord repay your work, and a full reward be given you by the Lord God of Israel, under whose wings you have come for refuge.”

Mrs. P's Haven of Refuge Devotional for today is:

Be Moved By The Spirit

†              †

                       
                      Imagine yourself walking past the prodigal son sitting in the pigpen , you look at him and see him salivating for the pigs’ food. Believing that it is good to show kindness, you give him money to buy food for himself.

    That is human kindness which says, “I am a Christian. I should be kind, good and forgiving.” Such human sweetness or kindness may be likened to honey. Interestingly, while we elevate it, God tells His people not to bring Him a grain offering with honey in it.

             The grain offering speaks of Jesus’ life on earth. Not mixing honey in the grain offering speaks of how the compassion and goodness we see in Jesus during His earthly ministry were all divine. There was no “honey” of human goodness, which is inevitably tainted with human weakness.

                 In retrospect, the worst thing one could do for the prodigal son was to give him money when he was in the pigpen. Not only would he not have gone home, but what the Lord was doing in his heart would also have been spoiled. This is what happens when we go by the goodness of our human hearts instead of the goodness of God in our hearts, which is directed by His love, wisdom and perfect timing.

         God does not want you to be moved by what you see but by His Spirit. There were many needy folks surrounding Jesus during His time on earth. But He did not heal every sick person around Him, feed every hungry stomach he passed or raise all who were dead.

                                      Isaiah 11:2–3   t ells us that the Lord was not moved by what He saw or heard. He was moved only by the Spirit.

         You too have the Spirit in you (see 1 Corinthians 3:16). Be moved by Him. Follow the peace that He puts within your spirit to do or refrain from doing something. That peace is the peace of God. Acting on that peace will cause God to be exalted, and His divine goodness and kindness to really be a blessing to you and others!  AMEN

    Leviticus 2:11     No grain offering which you bring to the Lord shall be made with leaven, for you shall burn no leaven nor any honey in any offering to the Lord made by fire.

Mrs. P's Haven of Refuge Devotional for today is:

Righteousness Is Not Right Doing But Right Being 

†              † 

                       
                What do you think righteousness is about? Something you do or something you are? Right doing or right being? The Bible tells us that after Jesus’ sacrifice at the cross, God imputes righteousness not to those who strive to obey the law, but to anyone who believes in His Son. Because Christ took our sins and gave us His righteousness, the moment we believe in Him, God treats us as righteous apart from our works or obedience, This is new covenant righteousness a righteousness that comes by faith and not works.

           You are not righteous because of how morally upright you are. You are not righteous because you exercise self-control. You are not righteous because you read 10 chapters of the Bible daily. You are not righteous because you feel righteous. But you are the very righteousness of God in Christ solely because the sacrifice of Jesus made you so. When you believe this, your faith is accounted for righteousness.

       And this is what God wants you to use your faith for. If you are righteous by your deeds, you don’t need faith. You also don’t need faith to know that you are sinful. But you need faith to believe and declare that you are the righteousness of God in Christ, in the midst of your struggles with temptation and sin.

          For example, when you feel lousy because you have just shouted at someone or family member, God wants you to exercise your faith to see yourself as still righteous in the midst of that failure. This living revelation that you are still righteous will give you the strength to love your family members and reconcile things with them.

       The devil may remind you of your foul temper and question your integrity: “How dare you call yourself righteous when you just did that!” Just ignore his lies and boldly declare, “I am not righteous because of what I have done or not done. I am righteous only because of the blood and finished work of Jesus at the cross!”  AMEN...

Romans 4:5
                            But to him who does not work but believes on Him who justifies the ungodly, his faith is accounted for righteousness,

Jesus Delights In You Drawing From Him

†              † 

                       
                When people make demands on you or keep depending on you, you may end up stressed, tired and irritable. But this is not the case with Jesus. When people draw from Him, He is strengthened and refreshed!

           Jesus is, after all, God. And you honor God when you take your place as man and let God be God by drawing from Him. The One who said, even as the Son of Man came not to be ministered unto, but to minister, and to give His life as a ransom for many.”

       The Bible tells us that when Jesus arrived at Sychar, He was wearied from the journey and rested at a well. A sinful Samaritan woman then came to the well to draw water. Jesus ministered to her and she left rejoicing with the promise of living water. The disciples, having returned with food for Jesus, found Him already strengthened and refreshed.

         When they wondered who had given Him food while they were away, He told them, “I have food to eat of which you do not know.

         Today, when you draw from Jesus and let Him minister to you, it is “food” for Him that “refreshes” and “strengthens” Him.

             But it takes humility for us to allow Jesus to minister to us. We take pride in doing things for the Lord. We want to build our businesses, families and ministries for Him. All that is good, but without Jesus, we are spiritually bankrupt! We really have nothing to give to the Lord and His work.

       What we need to do first is to receive from Him because when we freely receive from Him, we are able to freely give.

      So rmember, Jesus wants to minister to you. Don’t try to minister to yourself. That is pride and self-righteousness. The Pharisees of Jesus’ day, who felt that they did not need Him and that they could provide for themselves, were the ones who could not receive from Him.

      So bring to Him your needs and say, “Lord, I need to draw from You. I present my needs to You. Minister to me and meet my needs. I cannot, but You can. Thank you, Lord.”

John 4:32
                   But He said to them, “I have food to eat of which you do not know.”

GOD IS A GIVER, NOT A TAKER

†              † 

                       
                Some Christians mistakenly believe that God gives and also takes away. At funerals, we sometimes hear the minister say, “The Lord giveth, and the Lord taketh. Blessed be the name of the Lord.”
 
               As children of God, we know what the Father’s will is for us. He is a giver, not a taker! Jesus said, “Do not fear, little flock, for it is your Father’s good pleasure to give you the kingdom.”

     It is the devil who is the thief. He comes to steal, kill and destroy. But Jesus came to give us life more abundant.

        Jesus met every need and healed every sickness brought before Him, and at the cross, He gave His own life. Never once did He take anything away from the people who came to Him. And the Bible says that whoever has seen Jesus has seen the Father. 
       
        Our heavenly Father wants you to know today that He is the one who gives you all good things. And if He has already given us heaven’s best, and that is Jesus, “how shall He not with Him also freely give us all things, AMEN....

Romans 8:32
                              He who did not spare His own Son, but delivered Him up for us all, how shall He not with Him also freely give us all things?
