Our Daily Manna 1st January 2020TOPIC: PREPARE TO WIN!BASIC SCRIPTURE: LUKE 4: 1-15
Welcome to this wonderful year of ELEVATION! It’s a
victory principle to begin the year with SEEKING THE
LORD just as the LORD began His earthly public ministry by
BEING LED OF THE SPIRIT to FAST, PRAY and be tempted!
Temptation was added to the prayer and fasting in order
to COMPLETELY PREPARE HIM for His role as THE LAMB THAT WAS SLAIN! Beginning the year with great expectations of winning over life’s challenges this year is great, but it’s not the will to win that matters-everyone has that! It’s the will to prepare to win that matters! YOU MUST PREPARE TO WIN!
You do this by secluding yourself at the beginning of the year like this just as the LORD did! You prepare by fasting and prayers! You prepare by denying yourself a full social life! SCALE DOWN! Truly, pain is sometimes agonizing! But it is temporary! It may last a minute, or an hour, or a day, or a year, but eventually it will subside and something else will take its place. If you quit however, it lasts forever! In life, if you fail to prepare, you’re prepared to fail. Michael Jordan noted this: “Obstacles don’t have to stop you. If you run into a wall, don’t turn around and give up. Figure out how to climb it, go through it, or work around it.”God is determined to move you from EXPECTATION to ELEVATION this year! That was what He told me! You may have had a bad last-year or maybe, your last year was your best in history! But hear this again: THE BEST IS YET TO COME! Vin Scully said: “Good is not good when better is expected.” Did you get that? THERE ARE BETTER AND GREATER things ahead! There are more testimonies ahead!There are more new songs of celebration you will sing! There are more battles AND MORE ELEVATION STORIES ahead! The difference between the impossible and the possible lies in a person’s determination! Wear DETERMINATION as A ROBE in all you do this early year! Determine to fast again! Determine to get the “WAR AGAINST HAMAN – 15” booklet which contains the 21-day fasting prophetic prayers! Determine to sow again! Determine to still be at the WORLD ANOINTING ELEVATION NIGHT again! Determine to still give out more copies of this devotional this month and beyond. In life, persistence can change failure into extraordinary achievement! The principle is competing against yourself. It’s about self-improvement, about being better than you were the day before! NEVER GIVE UP now!Continuous effort, REFUSING TO STOP TRYING, is the key to unlocking your potential! Champions are champions because they keep playing until they get it right! Start praying “PRAYERS JUST BEFORE ANY FASTING PROGRAMME” ON PAGE 108 OF “WAR AGAINST HAMAN- 15” from today! No more stories without results! This is your year of DIVINE ELEVATION! It will happen!
