God will glorify you for His sake

February 8

“Now the king was attracted to Esther more than to any of the other women, and she won his favor and approval more than any of the other virgins. So he set a royal crown on her head and made her queen instead of Vashti.” Esther 2:17.

Esther was a Jewish orphan, adopted and groomed by Mordecai for her royal office as Queen of Persia. By God’s providence, as in the case of King David, God anointed and appointed her to become His servant-queen to serve His Kingdom purpose. Esther grew in wisdom, favor with God, and won the heart of the King.

Once inside the palace grounds, God sent her another ‘helper’ – a Persian Eunuch who also ‘loved’ Esther. He became committed to her care and protection and coached her on how to outshine her rivals. The King met Esther and he ‘loved’ her. God’s grace and anointing on your life will make you attract sponsors, helpers, teachers, and encouragers.

Soon after Esther became the Queen of Persia, a crisis came for the Jews. Her position and prominence as Queen gave her the power, ability, and influence to become the savior of her people. God will glorify you to glory Him for your sake, for His sake, and for the people sake.

Kingdom Declaration:

God will glorify me for His sake and for the sake of my destiny as His eternal servant.

Trust and Acknowledge the LORD

February 7

“Trust in the LORD with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make your paths straight.” Proverbs 3:5-6.

Two words in this passage are filled with revelation that will help you to experience God’s blessings in your life: ‘trust’ and ‘acknowledge’.

1) Trust. The word ‘trust’ involves confidence in the character, ability, agenda of the person that you put your trust in. Here we are not only encouraged to put our trust in the LORD, but also to trust Him with ALL our hearts – without any reservation. This could be dangerous if we put that kind of trust in a person with imperfections. Thankfully, because of God’s perfection, His unchangeable character, His reputation, and His unlimited power, we can trust Him with ALL our hearts. “For I am the LORD, I do not change.” Malachi 3:6. When we trust in the LORD our confidence, security, provision, and protection is in Him.
2) Acknowledge. The word ‘acknowledge’ involves recognition of the authority or status of something that it is real, genuine, and credible. It is also agreement and verbal acceptance of something. “If you confess (acknowledge and declare) with your mouth,” Jesus is Lord, “and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved.” Romans 10:9. To acknowledge is a strong declaration of God with us, in us, and for us. It places God as your “Most High” in all your circumstances and greater than all that can come against you.

My prayer for you: “May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.” Romans 15:13.

Kingdom Declaration:

I trust in God and acknowledge Him as my Jehovah, The Most High God.

The CHAYIL Glory of Jesus

February 6

“At that time they will see the Son of Man coming in a cloud with power and great glory.” Luke 21:27.

CHAYIL Glory is the manifested power and glory of the LORD Jesus Christ in and through His servants. As we look in the life of Jesus, we can see the manifested CHAYIL Glory in His life.

The CHAYIL Pillars of Jesus:
1) His worship:
Jesus taught to worship God: “This, then, is how you should pray: “‘Our Father in heaven, hallowed be your name”. Matthew 6:9. His worship was seen in His obediently life and devotion to His Father’s will.
2) His wisdom:
After He taught the people they exclaimed, “…Where did this man get this wisdom and these miraculous powers?” they asked.” (Matthew 13:54).
3) His power:
“Jesus returned to Galilee in the power of the Spirit, and news about him spread through the whole countryside. He taught in their synagogues, and everyone praised him.” Luke 4:14-15.
4) His honor:
“That all may honor the Son just as they honor the Father. He who does not honor the Son does not honor the Father, who sent him.” John 5:23.
5) His favor:
“And Jesus grew in wisdom and stature, and in favor with God and men.” Luke 2:52.
6) His wealth:
Jesus was blessed with wealth at birth, ” On coming to the house, they saw the child with his mother Mary, and they bowed down and worshiped him. Then they opened their treasures and presented him with gifts of gold, frankincense and myrrh.” Mat 2:11.
7) His influence:
“And we have seen and testify that the Father has sent his Son to be the Savior of the world.” 1 John 4:14.

Kingdom Declaration:

I live to worship Jesus in my obedience to His mission to fill the earth with His Glory.

Worthy is the Lamb

February 5

“In a loud voice they sang: “Worthy is the Lamb, who was slain, to receive power and wealth and wisdom and strength and honor and glory and blessing!” Revelation 5:12.

The Lamb of God, Jesus Christ, is worshipped and exalted in heaven to receive glory from His sons, daughters, and angels.

Jesus will give and receive from us:
1) Power.  God will activate His power in you for greater authority, favor, and victories.
2) Wealth.  Expect creative power for wealth and open doors of new opportunities.
3) Wisdom.  God will grant you godly wisdom for a new season of opportunities and restoration of relationships.
4) Strength.  Your capacity, endurance, and emotional intelligence, are being strengthened.
5) Honor.  Respect, virtue, and moral good, will make you attractive to people of influence and greater confidence.
6) Glory.  We were created and made by God for the display of His Glory, “Everyone who is called by my name, whom I created for my glory, whom I formed and made.” Isaiah 43:7. Jesus in you is the Hope of Glory and salvation for the world.
7) Blessing.  Special favor will be bestowed upon you by God.

The Glory of the LORD Jesus Christ is rising upon you so that He can receive glory through you.

“All I have is yours, and all you have is mine. And glory has come to me through them.” John 17:10.  Jesus is praying for you.

Kingdom Declaration:

Father, the time has come, glorify your servant, that I may glorify you.

God fights for the poor

February 4
“To the person who pleases him, God gives wisdom, knowledge and happiness, but to the sinner he gives the task of gathering and storing up wealth to hand it over to the one who pleases God. This too is meaningless, a chasing after the wind.” Ecclesiastes 2:26.

I believe that one of the areas of kingdom transfer in this season is the area of resources.  God is creating a revolution to uproot and tear down oppressive people of influence who prosper by victimizing the poor and purposefully manipulating economic and social systems to keep people and nations in poverty.

God is fighting for the poor.  Millions of people are suffering from the effects of poverty such as preventable diseases, starvation, torment, homelessness, and even death.  The cry of the poor has reached the heavens and the intercessors on earth agree that it is time for the LORD of Wealth, EL CHAYIL, to show forth His power once again and speak to corrupted Pharaohs and Kings to set people, communities, and nations free.

This is a season for you to develop yourself, and prepare for new opportunities, partnerships, and strategic alliances. You will be a part of a focused group that will create economic and societal solutions.  As God’s trusted steward of the Lord’s resources, you will become a solution to the poor and with ability to help the powerless.  God’s covenant promise to you is, “Remember the LORD your God, for it is he who gives you the ability to produce wealth, and so confirms his covenant, which he swore to your forefathers, as it is today.” Deuteronomy 8:18. You are born and kept alive for such a time as this.

Kingdom Declaration:

EL CHAYIL, LORD of Armies King of Glory, is my LORD of Harvest and Wealth.

The Kingdom of God

February 1

“Look! An army is coming from the north; a great nation and many kings are being stirred up from the ends of the earth.” Jeremiah 50:41.

There is a special visitation from God for the manifestation of His glory in and through His sons and daughters on the Earth. God’s revelation His believers: “You will be for me a kingdom of priests and a holy nation.” Exodus 19:6. Today God is reminding you that He has a plan for you in His Kingdom.  Whether you serve in ministry or work in the secular world, God wants to serve and work through you.  You are alive to represent Him in making our world a better place.

The Kingdom of God is the reign of God in heaven and on earth in lives, societies, and territories. His Name is King of kings and LORD of lords.  The words ‘kings and lords’ refer to God’s servants of influence in homes, schools, workplace, communities, and government.  Mothers and fathers are kings and lords (influential servants, leaders, and rulers) in their families.

In God’s Kingdom you are privileged, safe, secure, and valued. In earthly kingdoms you have provision through work or welfare but in God’s Kingdom, He is your Provider.  In earthly kingdoms you have special care when you are sick but in God’s Kingdom, He is your Healer.  In earthly kingdoms you have a place to live but in God’s Kingdom, God lives in you.

Your message from your King today, “The LORD your God is with you, he is mighty to save. He will take great delight in you, he will quiet you with his love, he will rejoice over you with singing.” Zephaniah 3:17. Your King loves you.

Kingdom Declaration:

I am a servant in the Kingdom of God to share and show the good news of His Kingdom.

CHAYIL Glory at work

January 31

“Serve wholeheartedly, as if you were serving the Lord, not men, because you know that the Lord will reward everyone for whatever good he does, whether he is slave or free.” Ephesians 6:7-8.

A spirit of excellence is manifested CHAYIL Glory. The Bible encourages us to pursue good work ethics and a spirit of excellence because the Lord will promote and reward you.

Joseph as an excellent worker:

1) His Manager was secure.  “So he left in Joseph’s care everything he had; with Joseph in charge, he did not concern himself with anything except the food he ate.”  Genesis 39:6.

2) The company prospered.  “From the time he put him in charge of his household and of all that he owned, the LORD blessed the household of the Egyptian because of Joseph.  The blessing of the LORD was on everything Potiphar had, both in the house and in the field.”  Genesis 39:5.

3) He was promoted.  “Joseph found favor in his eyes and became his attendant.  Potiphar put him in charge of his household, and he entrusted to his care everything he owned.”  Genesis 39:4.

4) He prospered.  “The LORD was with Joseph and he prospered, and he lived in the house of his Egyptian master.”  Genesis 39:2.

5) He was consistent.  Treachery and lies landed him in prison but Joseph was consistent.  “So the warden put Joseph in charge of all those held in the prison, and he was made responsible for all that was done there.  The warden paid no attention to anything under Joseph’s care, because the LORD was with Joseph and gave him success in whatever he did.”  Genesis 39:22-23

6) God rewarded him.  Joseph’s ethics, attitude, and behavior were being assessed by God for potential promotion.  “So Pharaoh said to Joseph, “I hereby put you in charge of the whole land of Egypt.”  Genesis 41:41. God used Joseph’s prison experience as the stepping-stone to his ultimate promotion, in charge of Egypt and with a purpose to preserve Israel.

Joseph’s work was an opportunity to share and show the glory of God. He suffered trials in His journey but He keep close to God in worship and good work ethics and God blessed Him in the midst of his enemies.

Kingdom Declaration:

God is in me and with me always and I live to share and show His Glory.
