Topic: When A River Deviates… [Wednesday, October 25, 2017]

Basic Scripture: Philippians 3:8-15

When a river deviates from its course, what happens? It ends up forming a stagnant lake, giving its environment filth and foul air. Eventually it dries up, unable to reach the sea, its destination.

Welcome to today’s meditation! The year is in its last quarter already and after all the hullabaloo (noise) and talk of New Year resolutions, prayers, January and July worldwide fasting programmes, holiness lifestyle, etc, it will amaze you to know that many are still discouraged and frightened about the remaining days of the year. Oh! Many are saying things like: “SO ANOTHER YEAR IS ENDING WITHOUT MY MIRACLE? No, refuse to dwell in that camp! Be like a flowing river of life. You must resist the wicked gates of hell against such thoughts of discouragement and secret bitterness.

No matter what is happening around you, you must never deviate from your goals. Have you not read of River Niger? Most great rivers are narrow midway! Refuse to give up! God will see you through! Declare many times before continuing to read this write-up: “A knock down is not a knock out! A delay is not a denial.” Achievers do not give up midway into their goals. Yes, the 52 weeks of this year are gradually going, but God’s DIVINE CALENDAR concerning you is still on course! He has so many 52 weeks (years) ahead of your life! Do not write the last chapter of your life by yourself!

This is because God has not finished with you and success is not a destination. Success is a journey, a continuous process. Oh, refuse to stop now! You must not deviate from your course! There are so many prospects ahead for you and your family. Paul said, “One thing I do (it is my one inspiration), forgetting what lies behind and staining forward to what lies ahead.”

(Amplified Bible). Do the same! Be this minded (Vs 13)! Always remember: A knock down is not a knock out; a delay is not a denial! Strain forward! Pray now: “Lord, I must finish my course, plans and purposes. My life and ministry must experience tangible EVIDENCE and advancement at the end of this year” (Pray it very well now). I subdue any plan to deviate and distract me in Jesus mane. Bulldoze distraction now!

Prayer Points: Take your best worship song to God.

1. Worship the Lord and just adore Him.

2. Thank Him for believing in you in all His creation.

3. Lord, let my enemies be your enemies as 2017 ends.

4. Still pray about your goals in 2017. Pray in tongues.

5. Pray about today and generally as you are led on any other issue(s).
