Daily Success! Marriage rings – Ezekiel Atang

Published

on

MARRIAGE RINGS

Proverbs 4:18 KJV
“But the path of the just is as the shining light, that shineth more and more unto the perfect day”.

While on my last missions trip to Chicago, I got to learn about different kinds of marriage rings from a friend. These different rings tell a lot about the various phases of marriage and marriage life with what is expected of us. And here are they:

1. Engagement ring: Is that time of first meeting with the joys and fun that goes with expectations towards marriage. There is a lot of faith here, with hope and enthusiasm. It is the phase of marriage where love is as strong as death. Song of Solomon 8:6

2. Wedding ring: This is the dream come true. The day you took the biggest vow of your life to spend the rest of your life with that special person. The world came to witness it and you were highly celebrated, as God did put His blessing on the marriage.

3. Discove-ring -(discovering): This ring is not so nice at times, because many people don’t like what they get to discover. Weakness, habits, background stories never told, past involvements, temperaments, etc. Things that make you wonder if you married the right person in the first place.

4. Perseve-ring (persevering): At this stage you decided to persevere with patience. It is at this point that character is formed in you both, as you work through; creatively seeking solutions together.

5. Resto-ring (restoring): After you would have survived the storms and pains, you will most definitely see restorations. Here you find out that perseverance pays. Because you will begin to see the result of patience, which is restoration. Love will be restored, respect, spiritual lives and all these expectations you once had. They will all be restored in your marriage.

6. Prospe-ring (prosperity): At this point you will not be able to escape prosperity in your marriage. There is now understanding, respect, sound communication, solid mature love, etc. It is then that God opens the flood gates of heaven to your family; knowing full well that you both will not mess things up.

7. Mento-ring (mentoring): This is the time to help others with the help that God gave you while you went through all the other rings. Marriage is a public utility and not a private thing, use your experiences for the benefit of others.
Enjoy your marriage in Jesus Name.

Action Points/Prayer
Study today’s word all over again and pray through with it along with your spouse.

Nugget
Marriage is a public utility and not a private thing, use your experiences for the benefit of others.

 

REPRESENTING THE KINGDOM

Matthew 6:33 KJV
“But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.”

There is a major requirement that must be in your life if you must reign in life. What makes God bless a man is not what the man says, but what is in his heart. God deals with the hearts of men much more than their words. Your motives and intentions will spell your next level.

God told the prophet Samuel in 1Samuel 16:7 that He sees the hearts of men. God blesses you according to the state of your heart as well, in 2Samuel 7:1-3. All God needed to bless David was the expressions of his heart. If kingdom interest is not your interest, you will not be able to sail through into your reigning in life.


People who reign did not get there based on selfish motives. Every reigning or influence, based on self, leads to self-destruction. You must determine what your life is all about before applying for the power and ability to reign. But God has given us the recipe for reigning. God wants the kingdom to be your motive for power, wealth, riches, etc. If the kingdom does not come first, then your reigning will be compromised.

The kingdom must be your motive, the kingdom must be your intention; it must be your pursuit. God says we should seek it.

To Seek is to desire after, it is to plot for, it is to endeavor, require, enquire after. Let the kingdom be your personal interest from today.


Come to the point where you trust God to give you serious money so you can do exploits for Him in the kingdom.
How to Represent the Kingdom

1. Ask God to take away greed and covetousness from your heart: When you are covetous, it will be very hard to partner with God.

2. Seek to know, defend and do God’s will: Matthew 6:10. God’s will is God’s purpose and intentions. It must be done here on earth as it is in heaven. All that is written in the Bible is how it is done in heaven. It takes, your personal influence, finances, relationships, etc., to make it come to pass here on earth.

3. Let your light shine by your good works: Do good to all men, especially to those of the household of faith. Galatians 6:9-10. Jesus didn’t just come preaching, He went about doing good. Acts 10:38
Receive grace to represent the kingdom in Jesus Name.

Action Points/Prayer
-Lord I receive the grace to represent you among men in Jesus Name.
-Lord do a spiritual heart transplant in me o Lord and cause me to think your thoughts and feel what you feel in Jesus Name.

Nugget
If the kingdom does not come first, then your reigning will be compromised.

 

ADULTERATION

Proverbs 6:32 KJV
“But whoso committeth adultery with a woman lacketh understanding: he that doeth it destroyeth his own soul”.

Our text may confuse some young persons to believe that the scripture is referring to married people; since adultery is mostly defined as a sexual misconduct of a married person. Well, it is just a half truth. The scripture actually refers to both married and unmarried people in sexual misconduct. The reason is that there is no fornication in the Ten Commandments, and Jesus said if you look at a woman in lust then you have committed adultery with her in your heart already.

The fact that fornication is not in the Ten Commandment means that God doesn’t even expect us to go into fornication, which is more of harlotry or prostitution. This act is rather common amongst single people, hence they attached fornication to them. But adultery is one singular act of sexual indiscretion. (Please read my book on “Understanding Sex”).

However, adultery is far more dangerous than that. It actually means “to alter”. When you sleep with a woman or man who is not your spouse, you actually alter something in your spirit, soul and body.

More dangerous is the fact that you would have altered something in your destiny. Adultery is what it is called. It is the same as alteration, defile, adulterate, contamination, etc. and once adulteration takes place with a thing; that thing ceases to be the same anymore. This is why people suffer so much in life; it is due to sexual carelessness.
Receive grace for sexual purity today in Jesus Name.

Action Points
-Read all my books on sex and sex related subjects.
-Get an accountability partner today over any sexual weakness in your life.

Prayer
-Lord I receive the grace to overcome sexual weakness in Jesus Name.

Nugget
When you sleep with a woman or man who is not your spouse, you actually alter something in your spirit, soul and body; you would have altered something in your destiny.

Daily Success! Fulfilling Your Fruitfulness Mandate – Ezekiel Atang

Published

on

FULFILLING YOUR FRUITFULNESS MANDATE

Genesis‬ 41:52‬ KJV‬‬
“And the name of the second called he Ephraim: For God hath caused me to be fruitful in the land of my affliction.”

Fruitfulness is a mandate for the Christian and not just a thing that we do. It is a command of God, it is an expectation of God and it is what God designed to make this world continue for as long as He desires. When He said “be fruitful”, He meant it, and desired that we fill the whole earth with mankind. But we may need to look at the animals who are really fruitful and find out how they do it.

i. No animal or plant will be fruitful without remaining in their natural, God given habitat. Outside the water the fish will never be fruitful, detached from the ground the plant will never be fruitful, living in the water, the bird will never be able produce. Man has his natural and God given habitat and that habitat is the presence of God.

ii. We saw in our theme scripture for the month that God caused Joseph to be fruitful. It was God that caused the fruitfulness, not his wife, not his doctors, neither the state of his body. Hence he named his child Ephraim (fruitful). But how did it happen?

iii. The presence of God was Joseph’s secret. We see that he didn’t go into Egypt alone, neither did he get into the prison house alone. He was a dweller in the presence of the Lord:

“And the Lord was with Joseph, and he was a prosperous man; and he was in the house of his master the Egyptian.”
“But the Lord was with Joseph, and shewed him mercy, and gave him favour in the sight of the keeper of the prison.” Genesis‬ 39:2, 21‬ KJV‬‬

Need I say more? The presence of God in consistency is what results in all round fruitfulness. We can see it further in this scripture:

“Those that be planted in the house of the Lord shall flourish in the courts of our God. They shall still bring forth fruit in old age; they shall be fat and flourishing; To shew that the Lord is upright: he is my rock, and there is no unrighteousness in him.” (Psalms‬ 92:13-15‬ KJV‬‬).

Hannah located God’s presence in prayer and then she became fruitful. )1Samuel 1:9-19).
Zechariah was in God’s presence when the Angel of God visited him and he became fruitful. (Luke 1:8-24).
Locate your natural habitat today and fulfill your fruitfulness mandate in Jesus Name.

Action Points
i) You will need to go over today’s message again and make more sense out of it.
ii) Schedule times for engaging God’s presence daily.
iii) Ask God for consistency in His presence.

Prayer
-Lord please teach me to dwell in your presence.
-Cause me to truly and really delight in your presence.
-Father activate my fruitfulness mandate as I dwell in your presence in Jesus Name.

Nugget
Fruitfulness is a command of God and an expectation of God for us.

Daily Success! From Emptiness To Abundance – Ezekiel Atang

Published

FROM EMPTINESS TO ABUNDANCE

2 Kings‬ 4:1-7‬ KJV‬
“Now there cried a certain woman of the wives of the sons of the prophets unto Elisha, saying, Thy servant my husband is dead; and thou knowest that thy servant did fear the Lord: and the creditor is come to take unto him my two sons to be bondmen. And Elisha said unto her, What shall I do for thee? tell me, what hast thou in the house? And she said, Thine handmaid hath not any thing in the house, save a pot of oil. Then he said, Go, borrow thee vessels abroad of all thy neighbours, even empty vessels; borrow not a few. And when thou art come in, thou shalt shut the door upon thee and upon thy sons, and shalt pour out into all those vessels, and thou shalt set aside that which is full. So she went from him, and shut the door upon her and upon her sons, who brought the vessels to her; and she poured out. And it came to pass, when the vessels were full, that she said unto her son, Bring me yet a vessel. And he said unto her, There is not a vessel more. And the oil stayed. Then she came and told the man of God. And he said, Go, sell the oil, and pay thy debt, and live thou and thy children of the rest.”

The all so very popular story of the dead prophet’s widow has so much for us to learn from every time. And it seems to me that we will keep learning from it until the end of time. It is a story of rediscovery and recovery. Rediscovery because they had a pot of oil in their lives and in their house that they knew almost nothing about. This prophet died of debt because he had not really discovered that oil.

The man ran into debt to the point where he mortgaged his sons for loans. And he not paying the loan, thereby exposed his children to becoming slaves as payment for the loan he couldn’t pay. It was at this point that his widowed wife cried out for help to the prophet Elisha. And Elisha was led by God to point her to this forgotten and despised oil in their house. It was this oil that worked the wonders of provision and escape from slavery. Now, here are a few lessons to learn about this story:

i. The oil represents a special anointing, grace, ability, endowment, grace or special gift in your life.
ii. This oil is not in your life for fun. It is meant to be put to work so you can live a good life. So, for as long as you keep the oil unused your life will not make sense.

iii. The deployment of that oil is meant for empty vessels. And today’s empty vessels are needy people, lost souls, broken and dry people. You are supposed to reach out to them and pour your oil into them. And the more you pour into them the more the oil flows.

iv. Failure to use your oil will plunge you into poverty and a miserable life.

v. Failure to use your oil will make you suffer losses, such as: Loss of life, loss of family or children, loss of ministry and anointing, which is the loss of the oil itself.
My advice is simple; deploy your oil, and do it now.

Action Points
-Go over the devotional again and take steps.
-Ask God to show you your oil, or to help you identify your oil.

Prayer
-Lord please show me my oil.
-Grant me the grace and wisdom to deploy my oil in Jesus Name.

Nugget
This oil is not in your life for fun. It is meant to be put to work so you can live a good life.

Daily Success! Fruitfulness Is God’s Will For Your Life (2)

FRUITFULNESS IS GOD’S WILL FOR YOUR LIFE II

Genesis‬ 1:28‬ KJV‬‬
“And God blessed them, and God said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it: and have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over every living thing that moveth upon the earth.”

God’s will is God’s counsel for your life, and the bible says that there may be many devices in the heart of men, but it is the counsel of the Lord that shall stand; Proverbs 19:21. The will of God is God’s original intention for you. The will of God is God’s purpose for your life. Most importantly, the will of God is all that God has planned and concluded about your life already.

We know that because it was God’s first statement soon after creating man. God could have said any other thing, but He blessed them declaring “be fruitful”. When next you look at your life and wonder why things don’t seem to be working, always remember that it is His will for you to be fruitful in every way. When God blessed man with fruitfulness, He did not limit it to the fruit of the womb or the fruit of your work or spirit only. It was an all round fruitfulness. He simply said “be fruitful”.

The next thing you want to know is that fruitfulness is in you already. It is a blessing that came with your creation, long before your birth. As you may know already, you were not born the day you were created. You were created long before you were conceived and born. That was why God said to Jeremiah “before I formed you, I knew you…” Jeremiah 1:5. He was talking about Jeremiah’s creation in Genesis 1:26-28. And just in case you didn’t know, your creation is superior to your formation.

Your spirit is superior to your body. It is your spirit that helps your body stand erect, it is your spirit that helps you conquer adversity, it is your spirit that helps you overcome infirmities, and God had said to your spirit way back to be fruitful.

The conclusion is that you are fruitful regardless of what you see right. Please know that it is God’s will for you to be fruitful, and you are actually fruitful according to God, regardless of what doctor’s or test results say.

Action Points
-Thank God for today’s message.
-Thank Him for your fruitfulness.
-Declare to yourself seven times a day that you are fruitful in every area.
-Search out more scriptures on fruitfulness and claim them.

Prayer
-Lord it is so good to know that I was fruitful long before I was born.
-I thank you for my fruitful status.
-I refuse to walk by sight, I will walk by faith and by all you have said in your word in Jesus Name.
-I am fruitful, I am very fruitful, I am super fruitful in Jesus Name.

Nugget
When next you look at your life and wonder why things don’t seem to be working, always remember that it is His will for you to be fruitful in every way.
