RCCG Open Heavens Devotional Thursday 11 July 2013 CHANGE YOUR LEVEL By Pastor E. A. Adeboye

RCCG Open Heavens Devotional Thursday 11 July 2013
By Pastor E. A. Adeboye

Memorise: And the man waxed great, and went forward, and grew until he became very great: Genesis 26:13Read: 2 Kings 2:9-15
Every champion started as a potential champion. If they could change their level, so can you. Father, move me to my next level

It is possible to wine and dine with the King of Glory and not have a life transforming encounter with Him. Several crowds that followed Jesus remained onlookers: just seeing the signs He performed without having personal testimony. May you not allow complacency to rob you of your full potential in Christ. If you look at the life of those who become champions, there was a time when they were just potential champions – a time when they were yet to fully develop their potential. But later on, they moved on from that point. Take for instance David: by the time he was anointed to be king in the presence of his brethren in 1 Samuel 16:11-13, he was a potential champion. In fact, Saul was still on the throne. Also, in Judges 13:24-25 when the Spirit was moving Samson from time to time, he was
just a potential champion. Similarly, in 1 Samuel 3:2-18, Samuel was a baby prophet who did not even know how to identify God’s voice. So was Elisha in 1 King 19:19-21 when the mantle was first put on him.  In every potential champion, there is a seed of greatness. Yes, whether you believe it or not. There is a seed of greatness inside of you. If you are born- again, God has planted a divine seed in you. It is not every potential champion that will eventually become a champion. If you allow the seed of greatness to lie fallow in you, you will never go beyond being a potential champion. It is okay to begin as a potential champion but a terrible offence to die as one. Every potential champion would need to face several situations, circumstances and experiences before becoming a champion. For instance, after his first anointing, Davis was anointed again before becoming king over Judea (2 Samuel 2:4). In 2 Samuel 5:3, he finally became king over all Israel. This was when is potential was fully realised. Similarly, it was in 1 Samuel 3:19-21 that Samuel became an established prophet over the whole of Israel, while in 2 Kings 2:8-15, Elisha became an established prophet. There is a price to pay to move from being a potential champion to being a champion. If David could pay the price and move, you too by God’s grace will pay the and move to your place of destiny.

RCCG Open Heavens Devotional Wednesday 10 July 2013 DO SOMETHING ABOUT THAT WEAKNESS By Pastor E. A. Adeboye

Memorise:  “Let not sin therefore reign in your mortal body, that ye should obey it in the lusts thereof” Romans 6:12
Read: Judges 16:6-12
Bible in one year:  Jeremiah 1-2
Action point: The weakness you ignorw will take advantage of you. Daily ask god to turn your weakness into your point of strength
While fighting with the enemy, God sometimes helps us by causing the enemy to verbalise their evil intent like it happened to Samson in Judges 16:6. If your enemy tells you his plan towards you, what are you supposed to do? Sometimes, the enemy will be so full of the evil plot that he will spill it out unawares; for the mouth releases what the heart is full of (Matthew 12:34). If you share your secret with a particular friend, and you observe that your plans are repeatedly frustrated, you don’t need a soothsayer to tell you to either cut off from that enemy disguised as a friend or keep your secrets to yourself afterwards. The enemy will do just about anything to know the best way to get at you. One area he will concentrate on is your weak point. He will carefully study you to know your weak point and usually, it does not take him too long to discover this. Wisdom demands that you first identify your area of j weakness before your enemy does. There is no human being without one, yet if you can prayerfully present your weakness to the Lord and follow the instructions of the Holy Spirit, over a period of time, your point of weakness can become your point of strength. If you are easily seduced into lust by looking at naked pictures of the opposite sex, do something fast about it. Avoid being exposed to any form of indecent exposure of the opposite sex - be it live or in pictures. Watch the gate of your eyes carefully. A particular brother once discovered his weakness in this area and as part of checkmating his flesh, he made sure that whenever he was addressing a lady, he did not look at her eyes. Some people felt he was too weak but he did not mind their comments. All he was concerned about was how to ensure he did not become taken in temptation. Many Christians know their weak points yet they dare their flesh and even the devil, at the end, they become casualty of the power of darkness. Do you know your weaknesses? What are you doing about them? Prayerfully minimise any exposure to a source of temptation. Use the word of God to renew your mind and to strengthen yourself and ask God to uphold you. You will not fall.

RCCG Open Heavens Devotional Tuesday 9 July 2013 YOU CAN OVERTAKE By Pastor E. A. Adeboye

RCCG Open Heavens Devotional Tuesday 9 July 2013 
By Pastor E. A. Adeboye

Memorise: "… for more are the children of the desolate than the children of the married wife, saith the Lord." Isaiah 54:1b
Read: 1 Samuel 2: 20– 21

Prayer Point: Father, lay Your hand upon me and cause me to overtake all those who took advantage of me and those who have gone ahead of me.
Bible in one year: 2 Timothy 1-4
A single contact with God can make the difference in the life of an individual. For some years, some people have laboured in ministry, business, academics and career with nothing to show for it. If you are in such situation, a contact that will usher a season of positive change is coming your way. When the hand of God was laid on Elijah in 1 Kings 18:41-46, he outran King Ahab who had earlier taken off with speed on his chariot of horses. How can ordinary legs overtake horses? When God lays His hands on you, your progress will be so rapid that none of your enemies will be able to catch up with you. From the above scripture, we learn that when God's hand is upon you, the time you lost that worked against you will be recovered, and will work in your favour. Ahab ran ahead of Elijah yet the latter still overtook him. Also, when God's hand is upon you, every limitation or deficiency that should have stalled your progress will rather advance you. Imagine a man on his two feet beating a chariot of horses! This tells us that even when you lack the latest technology, you can still emerge the best if God's hand is upon you. This season, God's hand will rest upon you for good.
David, a young shepherd boy had contact with God and he became a king (1 Samuel 16:11-13). Many people had already written off Hannah as permanently barren until she had contact with God and the result was six children including Samuel (1 Samuel 2:21). At the end, God permanently shut her mockers up as she had more children than Peninnah. Isaiah 54:1 was fulfilled in her life. The time you started having children does not necessarily determine how many you will have. You can start early and have few children or start late and have many children. Hannah started late yet she had more children. Are you trusting God for the fruit of the womb? Have you been waiting for a long time? Are you asking when will it ever be my turn to have a baby? Your turn has just arrived. Get ready, you are about to overtake those who are years ahead of you. It is al lowed.

RCCG Open Heavens Devotional Monday 8 July 2013 attitude of worship-2 By Pastor E. A. Adeboye

RCCG Open Heavens Devotional Monday 8 July 2013 attitude of worship-2 By Pastor E. A. Adeboye

Memorise: "The four and twenty elders fall down before him that sat on the throne, and worship him that liveth for ever and ever, and cast their crowns before the throne, saying,
Thou art worthy, O Lord, to receive glory and honour and power: for thou hast created all things, and for thy pleasure they are and were created." Revelations 4:10-11
Read: Revelations 4:2-11

Bible in one year: Titus 1-3, Philemon
Key Point: If your worship is devoid of humility, it will not be acceptable

You can take different positions in worship, but a great position in which to worship God is to go flat on your face on the ground. Do you know this is still the practice in Heaven? Revelation 4:10 says,
"The four and twenty elders fall down before him that sat on the throne, and worship him that liveth for ever and ever, and cast their crowns before the throne, saying,"
When you go on your face before God, you are telling God that you are not in any way competing with Him. You are making yourself of no reputation in His presence. It means everything you have amounts to nothing. This is why the 24 elders in their highly exalted position in Heaven push their crowns aside, lie flat on their faces before God, and worship God. Some of us are still very proud when we say we have come to worship God. The clothes we wear are far more important to us than the worship we need to offer to God. How much is that cloth? When your life is not even enough to worship God, is it a cloth of a few thousands of Naira, Pounds, Dollars, or Euros that will be of greater worth to you?
When you lie on the ground before Him, you are saying, 'Not I but thou be seen, heard and feared oh Lord1. If you can, this is a great position to take whenever you truly want to worship the Lord. It is a position of complete and absolute surrender. It is a position of showing your depth of weakness so that His strength can take over. It is a position that shows you count yourself as nothing so that He can take you up. It is a position that will definitely get something out of God. How do you worship God? If you go to Him telling Him that you are strong, He may either let you go just the way you came or even take away the strength you think you have. But a broken and a contrite heart God cannot despise.

RCCG Open Heavens Devotional Sunday 7 July 2013 MIND YOUR CONFESSION By Pastor E. A. Adeboye

RCCG Open Heavens Devotional Sunday 7 July 2013 
By Pastor E. A. Adeboye

Memorise: “Thou art snared with the words of thy mouth, thou art taken with the words of thy mouth” Proverbs 6:2
Read: Numbers 14: 26-31
Bible in one year:  1Timothy 4-6
Prayer point: Most of the things that come our way are products of our confession. Stop calling negative things to yourself!
Every seed sown has its time to speak. There are situations you may find yourself that only your seed will speak for you. At such a time may your account in heaven be found in credit. Some years ago, I had a friend who was a great support to my ministry. While praying one day, the Lord said, ‘Son, your friend is about to die within the next one week in London: go to him now’ I immediately bought a ticket and went to London to see and pray with my friend. It has been over 14 years since that incident and he is still alive because he had some credit with God. This is why irrespective of what anybody says, you cannot afford to be a bench warmer in God’s house. Similarly, I had another friend who was also very supportive. Sometime in 1995, he heard in his ear that he should go and put his house in order because he was about to die. When he told me, I laughed it off because I knew that I could talk it over with my Daddy that I still needed my friend’s support, being so useful to me. More than 16 years after, he still lives. Do you have a solid deposit with the bank of Heaven that you can draw from today? If not, take steps to build one. 
A great lesson to be learnt from the Shunammite woman recorded in 2 Kings 4:18-26 is the need to be careful of what you say especially when going through a trying period. When this woman’s only son died, she was saying ‘All will be well’ and from there graduated to ‘All is well’. And all became well. She did not start to lament over her problem. Be careful with your tongue because it contains the power of life and death (Proverbs 18:21). Even when good may be coming your way, you can use your tongue to turn it off; your tongue can also become a snare (Proverbs 6:2). No wonder God asked Moses to tell the Israelites that it is what they said into His ears that He will do to them (Numbers 14:28). In those days, when it was difficult for us to make ends meet, I use to tell my wife that things will not continue to be tough for us, and that our tomorrow will be alright. What are you confessing about your tomorrow and today?

RCCG Open Heavens Devotional Saturday 6 July 2013 BE HIS FRIEND By Pastor E. A. Adeboye

RCCG Open Heavens Devotional Saturday 6 July 2013 
By Pastor E. A. Adeboye

Memorise: doeth: but I have called you friends; for all things that I have heard of my Father 1 have made known unto you.” John 15:15
Read: Genesis 18:17-18
Bible in one year:  Psalm 40-42
Key  point: God wants to upgrade you to the level of friendship but it will take your cooperation and willingness
The God we serve is not only a God of choice and promise but also a friendly and loving God. Genesis 18:17 says, 
“And the LORD said, Shall I hide from Abraham that thing which I do?” 
By this, God meant that because of his friendship with Abraham, it has become difficult for Him to hide certain future events from him. As high as God is, yet is He not ashamed to make the works of His hands His friends. Our Lord Jesus Christ also exhibited the same character. In John 15:1 5, Jesus declared: 
“Hence forth i call you not servants; for the servant knoweth not what his Lord doeth: but I have called you friends; for all things that I have heard of my Father 1 have made known unto you.” 
In other words, when you newly give your life to Christ, He may keep some secrets from you until He tries you out and sees you are ready and worthy of being trusted with divine secrets. In the Kingdom, a child is seen as no different from a servant until he grows into maturity (Galatians 4:1-2). If you are wise and move on from being a child who may or may not obey Him, to being His bond servant—who would always obey Him you will begin to earn His trust and confidence. Then, He will start to share some secrets with you, and would wait to see how you handle such privileged information. When He has tested your level of commitment, love and loyalty and He is satisfied, He will upgrade the relationship by making you a friend. Abraham was a friend of God and Christ’s disciples were also elevated to become His friends. From that moment onwards, He told them virtually everything the Father revealed to Him. At what level are you operating? Becoming His friend has nothing to do with the number of years spent in the Kingdom. There are believers of 5, 10, and 20 years or more who are still children and hence like servants. They have not been able to upgrade their relationship to friendship status; yet, there are converts of six months or one year of whom the Lord is almost finding it difficult to do without. They are already operating as His friends, enjoying lots of divine secrets. Locate yourself where you are and rnove up.

RCCG Open Heavens Devotional Friday 5 July 2013 LIKE A DREAM CHAMPION? By Pastor E. A. Adeboye

RCCG Open Heavens Devotional Friday 5 July 2013 
By Pastor E. A. Adeboye

Memorise: “When the LORD turned again the captivity of Zion, we were like then that dream” Psalm 126:1
Read: Psalm 126:1-4
Bible in one year:  Psalm 37-39
Action point: Ask that as many as are in various bondages, such as prostitution, alcohol, sodomy, drug addiction, masturbation, serial killing etc, be liberated by the blood of Jesus

Sometimes, when the King of glory pays you a visit, things will happen so fast that you may think that you are dreaming. When Peter had such a visit, he thought he was dreaming. After the angel led him out of the prison and finally vanished, that was when he realised it was no dream (Acts 12:1-11). A brother who never believed he could own a car in his life time received a great shocker one day when a relative bought him a car and asked somebody to deliver it to him. He asked: ‘Is this for me?’ The one who brought it said Yes’. The man simply turned around and began to walk away. He thought he was dreaming. Psalm 126:1-3 says when God visited His people who were in captivity, their deliverance came like a dream. Then those who were full of sorrow became filled with might and laughter. The truth is: after waiting for long to receive a particular blessing, when the blessing is to come, it will be in a hurry, especially if there is a divine visitation influencing it. In the name of Jesus, your blessing shall come to you like a dream. That good desire that has been denied you for so long will be delivered to you this season. Your blessings are going to locate you in a hurry. However, you may want to ask: How can I initiate a divine visitation? This can be done through prayer. Acts 12:5 says before Peter’s divine visitation, the church prayed without ceasing. Don’t give up on your prayers! Be persistent until God shows up. Also, high praises in the midst of that unpleasant situation can attract God’s visitation as was the experience with Paul and Silas (Acts 16:25-26). In addition, you can attract God’s visit when you give what nobody else has given, It could be money, time, dedication, etc. This was how Solomon attracted a divine visitation (2 Chronicles 1:6-12). Moreover, you can attract God’s visit by honouring God in different ways, particularly with your first fruits. God says He will honour those who honour Him (1 Samuel 230). Are you prepared to honour Him? Go ahead and provoke God’s divine visitation today!

RCCG Open Heavens Devotional Thursday 4 July 2013 STILL A POTENTIAL CHAMPION? By Pastor E. A. Adeboye

Memorise: "and if the tree fall toward the south, or toward the north, in the place where the tree falleth, there it shall be " Ecclesiastes11:3b
Read: Proverbs 6:9-11

Bible in one year: Psalm 34 – 36Key Point: A potential champion and a champion started from the same place but - while the former did not do enough to bring his potential into reality, the latter went the extra mile

There are three categories of champions: potential champions (champions to be), reigning champions (existing champions), and ex-champions (those who were once champions). Of the first category, virtually everyone was born into this world with the potential of becoming a champion. But as you would expect, it is one thing to have the potential to be something, but it is an entirely different ball game to run with the vision and actualise this potential. Every man is a potential father but not all men become fathers. This also applies to women. Not all women who had the potential of becoming a mother eventually became one. Every good potential in your life shall be pursued to its logical conclusion in Jesus name. In Bible times, Gehazi had the potential of having four times the anointing on Elijah, he could have become a super champion, but he bungled it.
In 1977, at a Congress we held at Ilorin (Nigeria), during the prayer time, I told the brethren that God told me that one day, The Redeemed Christian Church of God will be all over the world, and that it will take place very soon. They said amen. I was speaking as a potential champion then. Some among those who said amen left us. Also, in 1983, during our first Church Convention at the camp grounds, when we had about 15 or 16 buildings in all, we slaughtered a total of 10 cows during the Convention. I told them that someday, we will be using trailers to bring cows to our Conventions, and they said amen. In that particular year's Congress held at Ilorin, I travelled in the company of a brother we were ordained together as pastors on the same day. On our way, I prophesied that The Redeemed Christian Church of God will soon be all over that place. He said amen. Today, out of the five of potential champions ordained the same day with me; I am the only one still in The Redeemed Christian Church of God. Of the five, I loved one so much. Whenever 1 travelled to his station of service, we would sleep on the same bed. As we lay on the bed, I share with him the future the Lord had shown me. Yet, as close as we were, he never caught the fire. It is possible to sleep by the fire and never be ignited. May you not die as a potential champion! May your potentials become a reality this season. What are you doing to bring your potentials into reality?

RCCG Open Heavens Devotional Wednesday 3 July 2013 LITTLE BY LITTLE By Pastor E. A. Adeboye

RCCG Open Heavens Devotional Wednesday 3 July 2013 LITTLE BY LITTLE 
By Pastor E. A. Adeboye

Memorise: "As thou knowest not what is the way of the spirit, nor how the bones do grow in the womb of her that is with child: even so thou knowest not the works of God who maketh all" Ecclesiastes 11:5
Read: 1 Corinthians 10:11-13

Bible in one year: Psalm 31 – 33
Action Point: People fall little by little and rise little by little. If you don’t want a negative surprise, watch little developments that are taking place in your life.

It is good to know the weapons with which to engage the enemy, but this is not enough. It is important to also know the techniques of the enemy so that you will be guided on how to apply the weapons you have. The more I study the devil, the more I am convinced that he is a good boxer. In boxing, there are three major types of blow: the jab, the hook and the uppercut. The average boxer aims at hitting the head of his opponent but he may not start there. He starts with the jabs at the head, while the opponent is dodging these jabs, his stomach is exposed and the boxer capitalises on this to give the hook on the stomach. If he succeeds in hitting the solar plexus in the stomach, the opponent tilts forward and the boxer gives the uppercut because the head is closer and most likely not protected.
This tells us something about Satan's modus operandi, particularly in bringing down committed, Heaven-bound Christians. Although his goal is to completely severe the believer from his helper, so that members of the kingdom of darkness can do whatever they like with the fellow, he carries out this plan on a piecemeal basis. To succeed in this plan, the enemy can be very patient. The devil is satisfied with separating you from the Vine little by little. As is commonly said, 'Little drops of water make the mighty ocean.' This is why you must be concerned about your decrease in spiritual matters as little failings lead to a great fall. If you are gradually accepting Satan's excuse - It doesn't matter, know that something is wrong somewhere. If you have moved from no lie to little lies once in a while, you are already heading for a fall. If your Bible study has decreased, you are backsliding. If a little anger is now permitted by you, know that great anger is on its way. Never allow the little sins! Never give room for secret sins. No matter the size, sin is ultimately going to separate you from God your Ally. Take steps to know Cod more, obey Him and have more of Him. Little by little keep making efforts to grow in faith no matter how little the effort is each time. Don’t stay at same spot!

RCCG Open Heavens Devotional Tuesday 2 July 2013 YOU WILL MAKE IT! By Pastor E. A. Adeboye

RCCG Open Heavens Devotional Tuesday 2 July 2013 
By Pastor E. A. Adeboye

Memorise: “ Who is weak, and I am not weak? Who is offended, and I burn not?” 2Corinthians 11:29
Read: 2Corinthians 11:23-30
Bible in one year:  Psalm 28-30
Key point: Grace is the antidote to your problems and challenges. Ask God for more grace daily
The midwives of Exodus 1 did not fail God over the purpose for which He planted them at the general hospital. If they did not fail God in spite of their trying circumstances, you too will not fail God over His purpose for your life. If there was somebody who should not make it, it was Paul. When he was on the side of the devil, he was Satan’s egg and the arrow head of Satan’s rebellion. But from the time he encountered the Lord Jesus, all hell broke lose: he faced all kinds of challenges. What are you going through? Paul has gone through worse situations. He has been exposed to the worst kinds of danger — from the weather, men, beast and even so- called fellow believers (false brethren), yet he stood for Christ to the end.
A lesson from the life of Paul simply tells us that in spite of the level of hindrances, diversions, distractions and disturbances that come your way, if you truly want to finish strong, you will. Paul finished his course. By the grace of God, I will finish my course. Satan can use just about anybody including the leader that you so love and trust. If he wants to introduce a major hindrance on your way to finishing your assignment or making Heaven, he will stir up someone you never expected to hurt you to do something to you that will become a permanent 2’ hindrance to your progress. It happened to Paul. Certain believers he thought were together with him set him up; but for the Lord who had been his trust, he would never have recovered. God helped him out and he pushed the incident aside and moved on. Are you a victim of the plans of so-called brethren? Are you still grieving over j your losses and brooding over the pains? Receive grace and forgive them and move forward; if not, you have just terminated your progress and Satan and with his demons ‘ will celebrate defeat. Has your leader or leader’s wife offended you? Please forgive, release the fellow and move on. See the fellow and tell him or her how hurt you were by what he or she did, but that God has given you grace and you have forgiven him or her. Nothing must take Heàven from you. You will finish strong. You will make it.

RCCG Open Heavens Devotional Monday 1 July 2013 HEAVENLY HOME-COMING By Pastor E. A. Adeboye

RCCG Open Heavens Devotional Monday 1 July 2013 
By Pastor E. A. Adeboye

Memorise: “We are confident, I say, and willing rather to be absent from the body, and to be present with the Lord.” 2Corinthians 5:8
Read: 2Kings 13:20
Bible in one year:  Psalm 25-27
Action point: Pray for prisoners on death row worldwide that they will have a contact with God that will make them to end up with God. You can also create the time to visit the prison and pray for them.
Death is a sure event that is bound to happen. It strikes with no regard to the status of its victim. The earlier we realise the certainty of death, the better for us as it brings us freedom. When a believer dies, people will be hit with sorrow, including ministers of God. Is this not ironical? Are we not the ones preaching that Heaven is far better than the earth? So why are we sorrowful when one of God’s beloved has gone home? Or how else will they go home? Are they going to ride a bicycle there? Oh, we want to go there by the rapture: fine, but do you know the exact date for the rapture? 2 Corinthians 5:8 says, 
“We are confident, I say, and willing rather to be absent from the body, and to be present with the Lord.” 
Yet, we don’t want to be absent from the body through death but we want to be in the physical presence of the Lord. What an irony! If you take time to study Revelation 21, you will have a good picture of Heaven — golden streets, no night, no sunlight, the temperature is supernaturally regulated, everlasting joy, etc. If you truly want to get to Heaven, you should be prepared to know more about one method of passage into it - death. I lost my fear of death from my mother’s experience. Death separates the dead from the living and from other things they had been close to. 
Unfortunately, today, many people are still living in deception — still holding to old stereotypes about death and eternity. Some including highly educated people, still believe in reincarnation — that when they die, they will return to this world as a baby. Some believe if they commit suicide for a religious cause, that they will go to Heaven. But they will find themselves in hell. You have no right to stop the life you did not start. You are God’s property and if you dare take your life, you will end up in eternal hell. You cannot kill a human being like yourself in the name of religion and think you will ever get to Heaven. Which heaven? God’s judgment will take its full course. The sad news for suicide bombers is that while they terminate their lives and go to eternal hell, those who sent and paid them on that mission would still be living, and may give their lives to Christ and end up in Heaven.

RCCG Open Heavens Devotional Sunday 30 June 2013 ANY CREDIT WITH GOD? By Pastor E. A. Adeboye

RCCG Open Heavens Devotional Sunday 30 June 2013 
By Pastor E. A. Adeboye

Memorise: “Remember all thy offerings, and accept thy burnt sacrifice” Psalm 20:3
Read: Acts 9:36-42
Bible in one year:  Isaiah 13-15
Key point: From today, begin to build your heavenly credit for future
 “And she went up, and laid him on the bed of the man of God, and shut the door upon him, and went out!” 2 Kings 4:21. 
When the son of the rich Shunammite woman died in 2 Kings 4:18-26, she laid him on the bed that she had provided for the man of God. It was another way of telling God: ‘Lord, I have some deposits in my heavenly account: it is time to make a withdrawal’. She did not request for the child in the first place; it came as •interest on her investment. Do you have a deposit with God which you can draw from in times of crisis? It is wisdom to have such a deposit because atvery crucial moments in the life of the depositor, your investment will speak for you. At such times, you may not be the one to speak for yourself.
Psalm 20:1-3 says God will remember your offering in the day of trouble. This refers to regular offerings. But do you have a solid deposit with God? Dorcas did. In Acts 9:36- 42, when she died, everybody protested — Not Dorcas! When some people die, people would say may their soul rest in peace, but when some others die, people will lead a protest march to God, saying there must have been some kind of mistake. Check it; such people whose cases are protested most likely had deposits with God. As people protested Dorcas’ death, they sent for Peter and began to show him reasons she cannot just go now. So the Lord was forced to ask her to return to earth to continue her good work. If you die today, how many people will miss you? To test this, travel for one month and see how many people will ask you where you have been. If on your return people just say good morning to you, then it likely that when you die, you may go unnoticed to such people. While on board a ship in one of his trips, there was a terrible storm that put the lives of all that were onboard in danger for over two weeks. In the midst of this, an angel visited Paul and God said to him that because of his credit with God, both his life and the lives of those with him would be saved (Acts 27:13-24). Do you have credit with God?

RCCG Open Heavens Devotional Saturday 29 June 2013 HE IS OUR SEAL By Pastor E. A. Adeboye

RCCG Open Heavens Devotional Saturday 29 June 2013 
By Pastor E. A. Adeboye

Memorise:  “In whom ye also trusted, after that ye heard the word of truth, the gospel of your salvation: in whom also after that ye believed, ye were sealed with the Holy Spirit of promise” Ephesians 1:13
Read: Ephesians 1:11-14
Bible in one year:  Isaiah 10-12
Action point: spend 30 minutes thanking the Holy spirit for being your seal and comforter

The Holy Spirit guides you into all truth and sets you free. The greatest amnesty you can ever receive is from Him. Besides all these, John 16:13 says the Holy Spirit will show you things to come. He is a revealer of future events. There is hardly anyone who does not want to know tomorrow. Quite a number of people have ensnared themselves while seeking information about their future. Yet, they keep a distance from the One who can tell them of tomorrow. Unlike agents of darkness who can foretell by the spirit of divination, but provide destructive solutions to problems, the Holy Spirit guides His own into future events and provides appropriate solutions to problems identified. How much of the future that is revealed to you is a function of your closeness to the Holy Spirit. How close are you to the Revealer of secrets? 
John 16:14 says one major role of the Holy Spirit is to see that Jesus Christ is glorified in all He does through and in His church. He is the Source of divine power according to Acts 1:8, so if you really want raw, unadulterated power, go to the Holy Ghost. Ephesians 1:13 says He is the one who seals believers in Christ. Beloved, there is a seal over your life and that is the promised Holy Spirit. When there is an unpleasant event in the life of God’s children, the Holy Spirit effectively plays the role of a Comforter. While the best mortals can do is to sympathise, it is the Holy Spirit who knows exactly the level of hurt we are going through and who also knows the best way to provide comfort. Are you hurting presently? Is there something amiss that is causing sorrow in your heart? Look up to the Holy Spirit today and He will comfort you. Take heart beloved, it is well with you. That pain shall give way to joy. Are you weeping? Dry up your tears right now because the Lord is saying to a user of this Devotional, 
“Sing O barren, thou that didst not bear; break forth into singing, and cry aloud, thou that didst not travail with child: for more are the children of the desolate than the children of the married wife, saith the LORD.” Isaiah 54:1 
You shall laugh last. It is well with you.

RCCG Open Heavens Devotional Friday 28 June 2013 DIVINE JAIL BREAK By Pastor E. A. Adeboye

RCCG Open Heavens Devotional Friday 28 June 2013 
By Pastor E. A. Adeboye

Memorise: “And suddenly there was a great earthquake, so that the foundations of the prison were shaken: and immediately all the doors were opened, and every one’s bands were loosed.” Acts 16:26
Read: Acts 16:24-33
Bible in one year:  Isaiah 7-9
Key point: When a man breaks and escapes from jail, it is a crime. But when god breaks a jail and releases its prisoners, nobody can prosecute Him.
Gods personal visit to His children who are in bonds, liberates their hands from whatever cuffs had them bound. Beyond the hands, the legs of the visited will also be loosed and freed to make progress; so that the enemy who had him tied down will no longer be able to catch up with him. In Acts 3:1 -8, when the King of kings visited the lame man at the front of the Beautiful Gate, he did not only walk but he started to leap. Have your legs been incapacitated owing to poor health? They shall receive strength and become whole. At other times, your legs may be physically fit but they may be chained like ¡t happened to Paul and Silas ¡n Acts 16: 24-33. After they received the beating of their lives for delivering a lady from the oppressive spirit of divination, they were taken to prison and tucked into the inner ward to prevent escape. Yet, they did not stop there; they tied them with chains and tucked and locked their feet ¡n stocks. In other words, the enemies tried to block every possible avenue of escape. Now the jailor could safely go to sleep. As tired as they were, with their bodies bleeding from the wounds earlier inflicted on them before they were brought to the prison house, they felt they must immediately contact their Headquarters in Heaven and invite the King of Glory to personally visit them in that prison. They began to engage ¡n high praises at midnight and that night, the Lord came on a visit. An earthquake accompanied His visit and the foundation of the prison house shifted out of place, all locked doors were flung open, the chains on all the prisoners got broken and their feet were set free from the stocks. When God decides to visit that prison where the enemies have caged you, He can orchestrate a jail break. This season, the Lord will visit that prison that is housing you, your family as well as your destiny and there shall be a divine jail break ¡n the name of Jesus.

RCCG Open Heavens Devotional Thursday 27 June 2013 BLIND TO YOUR FAULTS? By Pastor E. A. Adeboye

RCCG Open Heavens Devotional Thursday 27 June 2013 
By Pastor E. A. Adeboye

Memorise: “Jesus said unto them, if ye were blind, y: should have no sin: but now ye say, we see; therefore your sin remaineth” John 9:41
Read: John 9:40-41
Bible in one year:  Isaiah 4-6
Prayer point: O Lord, expose my faults and weaknesses to me and grant me the grace to make amends.

Zechariah 3:1 -7 relays an incident where Joshua the high priest stood to offer some sacrifice but he was clothed with filthy garment and Satan stood at his right hand to resist him. This tells us that whenever we are not properly clothed in God’s righteousness and we want to offer something — an offering or sacrifice to God, there will surely be some formidable resistance from the kingdom of darkness. The filth on Joshua’s garment gave Satan legal right to withstand his offering. From this we also learn that not all sacrifices are acceptable to God. Some sacrifices are rejected, some are accepted while some others are contested. Mind how you are clothed before you go to offer anything before God! 
Meanwhile, it took another prophet — Zechariah to reveal the state of the high priest. Joshua was arrayed in filthy garments but he did not even notice it. Revelation 3:14-18 says that it is possible to be blind and think you have the best of sight. People have illusions about their present state. This is very dangerous — to think you are rich, successful and progressive whereas the opposite is the case. Ironically, many reject such a message and see it as being sent to someone else other than themselves, this is rather unfortunate. Going by what the Lord told the Pharisees in John 9: 40-41, it takes the blind fellow to admit his state of blindness before he can receive help from the Lord. As long as you think you are okay, you will never be better than what you are. It is your feeling of inadequacy that would drive you on your knees to request divine assistance. In addition, we see a crowd to whom the high priest was ministering; who saw the priest in filthy garment but none of them could point it out to him. This means that people see what the leader may not see but they need to inform the leader or help him with love. Some leaders ï ever give their associates or members the opportunity to correct them in love, probably because they present a front as if all is well, or that they know everything. Hebrews 12:1 tells us of the cloud of witnesses in Heaven who are keeping tabs on what we are doing. They see what we don’t see but someday, we shall unite with them in Heaven: will you be thereon that day?

RCCG Open Heavens Devotional Wednesday 26 June 2013 POWER IN THE BLOOD By Pastor E. A. Adeboye

RCCG Open Heavens Devotional Wednesday 26 June 2013 
By Pastor E. A. Adeboye

Memorise:  “And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony; and they loved not their lives unto the death.” Revelation 12:11
Read: Revelation 12:10-11
Bible in one year:  Isaiah 1-3
Action point: Apply the Blood of Jesus on yourself and family, ministry and plans every day. Attack the enemy with the blood of Jesus.

The Word of God works in all situations when the user has satisfied every requirement. If you are making a request and you are at the same time living in sin, particularly in secret sin, your sinful state can negatively impact on your prayers. Similarly, when you engage the enemy, and you want to use the word of God as a weapon, quote it correctly or it may not work for you. Satan knows the letters of the word from Genesis to Revelation, so the enemy knows whenever you misquote scriptures and can take advantage of that. In Matthew 4:1-11, when Jesus came face to face with the devil in the wilderness, He engaged the sword of the Spirit saying, ‘it is written’. How often do you engage the sword of the Spirit? How correctly do you quote scripture when engaged ¡n warfare? 
Moreover, the third weapon available to soldiers in God’s army is the blood of Jesus. Revelation 12:11 says,
 “And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony; and they loved not their lives unto the death.” 
If only you can see into the spiritual realm, then you will r appreciate the power in the blood of Jesus. An ex-agent of ¡ darkness, who was very active for the devil until her conversion to Christ, once said that the blood of Jesus is spiritually very acidic. If there is one weapon the kingdom of darkness avoids more than a plague, it is the blood. If you can imagine what harm physical acid can cause to the human body, then you may have a little glimpse of the power in the blood of Jesus. She said when they plant different objects at certain road junctions to cause accidents; they return to the scene after such accidents to drain the blood of their victims to their blood banks, which they subsequently serve as wine. But when some believers begin to pray and plead the blood of Jesus on thir local, national and international blood banks, the blood ¡n their ‘ blood banks becomes contaminated, acidic and completely undrinkable. They will have to throw away .. such blood and for that period, they will be very weak as they begin their search for fresh blood. Arise and cover , yourself, family and everything you have with the blood of Jesus. Also plead the blood upon all blood banks - both physical and satanic.

RCCG Open Heavens Devotional Tuesday 25 June 2013 DIVINE PARTNERSHIP By Pastor E. A. Adeboye

RCCG Open Heavens Devotional Tuesday 25 June 2013 
By Pastor E. A. Adeboye

Memorise: “For I the LORD thy God will hold thy right hand, saying unto thee, fear not, for I will help thee” Isaiah 41:13
Read: Isaiah 41:10-13
Bible in one year:  Galatians 4-6
Prayer point: God upholds his partners with his victorious right hand.

Beside divine compassion, dwelling with the Lord also assures you of divine goodness. This was the experience of David when he said assuredly that goodness and mercy will always accompany him for the rest of his life, because he will dwell in God’s presence continually (Psalm 23:6). Beloved, if you must be fruitful, you need both mercy and goodness. Why? Mercy makes you have what you don’t deserve. If you read Romans 9:15-16, you will find that God reserves the right to choose to be merciful or compassionate to whom He will. Consequentially, the one who wins the race is not necessarily the one who is more determined or has the fastest feet, but the one who has God’s mercy backing him or her. Those you probably envy because they are I recording a greater success in life or ministry are not necessarily wiser, stronger or holier than you, but just that they are enjoying the mercy of God that you do not enjoy. From today, you shall be a beneficiary of God’s mercy. 
This season if there is just one person who will be singled out for an undeserved blessing, it will be you. There is a user of this Devotional who has laboured conscientiously for years with nothing to show for it. By God’s divine hand of mercy, a favour is coming your way this season which nobody can stop, and which you cannot resist. When it comes to pass, just remember to share the testimony and give thanks to God in the assembly of His people. In addition, when you abide in Christ, you have a share in a divine partnership. Any force or person who says you will not succeed, God will deal with such a force or fellow in accordance with Romans 8:31. That is why Isaiah 41:10- 13 says you have no reason to fear; if God says He will help you, believe it: He will. When Peter accepted to partner with Jesus in Luke 5:1-7, when he got to his wits end in his career, the Lord supplied what he lacked and he took a catch he had never taken all his fishing years. Let the Lord into your boat and accept His divine partnership and your limitation will be your starting point.

RCCG Open Heavens Devotional Monday 24 June 2013 A SURE EVENT By Pastor E. A. Adeboye

RCCG Open Heavens Devotional Monday 24 June 2013 
By Pastor E. A. Adeboye

Memorise: “In the sweat of thy face shalt thou eat bread, till thou return to the ground, for out of it wast thou taken: for dust art thou; and unto dust shall thou return” Genesis 3:19
Read: Genesis 3: 17-19
Bible in one year:  Galatians 1-3
Key point: Ignoring an event that is bound to happen is the height of foolishness.

It is important to keep eternity in view as you live on the earth. Another reason people fear death is because death seals fate. Once you die, your fate is sealed. Job 7:9-10 says once a man dies, he cannot come back to his earthly home anymore. In Luke 16:19-31, the Lord told a story of a rich man and a poor beggar who lived at a particular time in life. At some point, they both died. While the fate of the rich man was sealed in hell, that of the poor man was sealed in Heaven, If you are born-again and you die righteous, your fate is sealed in Heaven, but if you die in your sins, your fate is sealed in hell. 1 Corinthians 10:12 says, 
“Where fore let him that thinketh he standeth take heed lest he fall.” 
As long as you are alive, no matter how strong in the Lord you may be, there is still the possibility offal! ing. Be careful! Death is sometimes referred to as the reminder. Why? It reminds us of our origin. It reminds us that we are dust. According to Genesis 3:1 7-19, we were taken out of dust and to dust will our bodies return. Not many people would like to hear that their beautiful body will return to dust one day. Death reminds us that we are not on earth forever but temporarily, hence we are called pilgrims (Hebrews 11:13; 1 Peter 2:11). The world is some kind of bridge we are trying to cross. Death reminds us of the coming judgment (Hebrews 9:2 7). You would be amazed to know that some men of God fear death more than other people because it has no regards for the anointing. In 1 Samuel 25:1, we read that Samuel — the king maker, king remover and prophet of Israel died with all his anointing. Saul — the first king of Israel also died (1 Samuel 31:6). Do you know that death does not regard the command not to touch Gods anointed? If you doubt this ask Elisha. In spite of the double portion anointing he possessed yet he still died (2 Kings 13:20). Death does not regard who you are — whether General Superintendent or General Overseer, Pastor, Prophet, etc. It will strike at its appointed date. Knowing death will surely occur, how prepared are you for its coming?

RCCG Open Heavens Devotional Sunday 23 June 2013 GOD OF GREATNESS By Pastor E. A. Adeboye

RCCG Open Heavens Devotional Sunday 23 June 2013 
By Pastor E. A. Adeboye

Memorise: “God shall bless us; and all the ends of the earth shall feqar Him”. Psalm 67:7
Read: Genesis 24:34-35
Bible in one year:  James 3-5
Action point: No amount of wealth you take from God can deplete His resources. Just ask, and keep asking.
While seeking a wife for Isaac, Abraham’s chief servant was sent to Abraham’s family in Nahor of Mesopotamia, to choose a wife for him. Standing before the family, he testified of how God had greatly blessed his master in all things (Genesis 24:34-35). lithe God of Abraham ¡s your God, you cannot die small, poor or insignificant. Why? The God of Abraham takes pleasure ¡n making His children great. Which of Abraham, Isaac or Jacob, of whom God is associated with by name was poor? Jeremiah 29:11 says, 
“I know the thoughts that I think towards you, saith the LORD, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end.” 
Are you a child of the Most High God? The Lord will equally make you great. You will not die ¡n poverty. You will not be insignificant. I have tasted both poverty and wealth and make bold to say that the latter is far better than the former. I have had to walk for the first 15 years of my life without shoes because we could not afford them. In my final year ¡n the grammar school, I was a fairly good student so I won some prizes. We used to have a prize giving day shortly before the school vacated. On that day, all who excelled in a particular subject would come out and shake hands with the principal and be given a prize. The final year students were expected to wear a white shirt on white trousers and shoes. Having won a prize, I had no trousers or shoes to wear. I began to question God why He allowed me to win a prize when He knew that I had no complementary uniform to receive ¡t. At that point, one of the boys ¡n the hostel who had six pairs of trousers called me to help him decide which to wear. As I did this, I used the opportunity to ask for a pair of trousers even though he was taller than I was. Then I remembered an uncle who had a pair of shoes and a pair of sandals that were not okay. He agreed to give me the sandal. Since I never wore a shoe before, I began to practice how to walk with it before the prize giving day. On that day, I appeared with extra long trousers and oversized shoes but received my prize. Have you gone through the bad side of poverty? Because you are now a seed of Abraham, things will turn in your favour from today.

RCCG Open Heavens Devotional Saturday 22 June 2013 OF BONDAGE AND LIBERTY By Pastor E. A. Adeboye

RCCG Open Heavens Devotional Saturday 22 June 2013 
By Pastor E. A. Adeboye

Memorise: “Now the Lord is that Spirit: and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty.” 2Corinthians 3:17
Read: Ecclestiastes 2:1-2
Bible in one year:  James 1-2
Prayer point: Father, in whatever bondage I have found myself, as I walk with the Holy Spirit this season, set me free. 

John 16:1 3 says if you are a friend of the Holy Spirit, He will keep you informed of the truth. It will be difficult for people to pull wool over your eyes. In addition to this, He will expose the truth of God’s Word to you. It is the revelation of the truth that makes free. This implies that, if you are a friend of the Spirit, He will bring you out of bondage and ensure you walk ¡n liberty. No wonder 2 Corinthians 3:17 says, 
“Now the Lord is that Spirit: and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty.” 
The greatest need of the one ¡n captivity is the Holy Spirit. Are you in a demonic bondage? You need the Holy Spirit. Are you in prison — both spiritual and physical? Be filled with the Spirit. Draw close to Him. Love and serve Him within that prison situation and before long you will be spiritually liberated. As you continue to walk with the Spirit, the physical prison walls will not be able to contain you. The truth is that you cannot have a close walk with the Holy Spirit and remain bound. Do you know that those who were criminals and are presently serving a prison sentence, but have now received Christ and are fellowshipping with the Holy Spirit, are actually free? If men say you are bound but God says you are free, who would you believe? 
Everybody desires freedom. Whether you are in a physical prison or not, you want to live at liberty. Do you know that the most enslaved people are not those inside the four walls of a prison but those outside? In their quest to be free to do whatever they like, many have become terrible slaves of their carnal desires. An individual who has no self control ¡s in bondage. Take Solomon for instance. He received unprecedented blessings from God, but a time came that he became so obsessed with carnal things that whatever his eyes liked, he acquired. What bondage! No wonder he ended up with 1000 women! The physical prison is there to help the convict have a rethink about life and to help them find Jesus. As you receive Jesus, develop your relationship with the Holy Spirit and win souls to Christ. Are you in a prison? The Spirit of God will bring you out in Jesus name.

RCCG Open Heavens Devotional Friday 21 June 2013 EMPOWERING YOUR HANDS By Pastor E. A. Adeboye

Memorise: “He teacheth my hands to war, so that a bow of steel is broken by mine arms.” Psalm 18:34
Read: Psalm 18: 31-35
Bible in one year:  Exodus 38-40
Prayer point: Father, in any way my hands have been tied, untie them and set me free.
God cannot pay you a personal visit and things in your life and around you will maintain status quo. His visits always come with glorious changes. May He visit you this season. When He visited the Red sea, a thoroughfare was created in the midst of it, for the Israelites to go through. When He visits you, He will create a way in your wilderness. When He visits you like He visited Peter in Acts 12: 5-11, your hands that were tied will suddenly become loose.You hands will befreeto war. Psalm 18:34 says, ðalHe teacheth my hands to war, so that a bow of steel is broken by mine arms.” When your hands are tied, you will be unable to employ them in areas you would normally use them. Business is war. Life itself is war. There are some people who started fighting the battles of their lives right from their mother’s womb. To prosper or to take the wealth of the wicked into your coffers ¡s serious warfare. You cannot fight and win such battles when your hands are tied. But ¡f your hands are free for war, then victory is sure because with a punch of your fist empowered by God, you can strike a lion dead; with a sling shot empowered by God, you can slay your Goliath. In Luke 5:1-7, the same hands that toiled all night without a catch, became empowered when the King of kings came visiting, and with just one throw of the net, he recorded a catch of fishes he had never taken in all his years in the fishing business! Are your hands tied? What is tying your hands? Why can your hands no longer perform their normal duties? Cry out for God’s personal visitation to you today! In the name of Jesus, everything tying your hands ¡s loosed. Every invisible rope or chain over your hands ¡s destroyed now. From today, your hands shall begin to perform to God’s glory what they were created to do. Your hands are divinely empowered to defeat your enemies and take over the spoils of war.

RCCG Open Heavens Devotional Wednesday 19 June 2013 WHY THE WORD SOMETIMES FAIL By Pastor E. A. Adeboye

RCCG Open Heavens Devotional Wednesday 19 June 2013 
By Pastor E. A. Adeboye

Memorise: “For everyone that useth milk is unskillful in the word of righteousness: for he is a babe.” Hebrews 5:13
Read: Hebrews 5:11-14
Bible in one year:  Exodus 32-34
Action point point: Check your life and find outin what ways you have made the Word to fail concerning you. Repent and make it work today
The word of God is most powerful. It lives and is Unlimited just like God. It is a spy agent for the fellow who knows how to use it well. If there is one weapon that the enemy can’t resist, it is the word of God, yet often times, it appears the word does not work. Is God a liar or what is wrong? There are a few instances where the word of God may not work. The first is during a trial of faith situation. While undergoing a trial of faith, the word of God is suspended for that individual or else he or she can never successfully go through the trial. For instance, during a trial of faith that borders on your finances, no matter how sin free, God-pleasing, or Heaven-bound you are, even if you pay your tithes regularly, at that trial period, it may not stop the devourers from devouring, and your promised blessing may be kept in abeyance. But after the trial period, your pending blessings will be delivered. Do not think you have lost such blessings during your trial period? They are only reserved, to be delivered after the trial. 
Another situation that may hinder the working power of God’s word is when it is not skillfully employed. According to today’s reading, if you are applying the milk of the word when strong meat or bones of the word is what you require to handle a situation, it will fail to deliver the result. For instance, if you are reciting the Lord’s Prayer during a time of need, instead of applying this prayer model and specifically asking for your need to be met, you may not have your desired answer. Or if you ask God for something without backing it up with relevant promises documented in the Bible, He may not answer you? It is not your prose in prayer that compels God into action, but His Word that you send back to Him. Even when He does not want to grant the request for your sake, He would be compelled to do so for the sake of His integrity. A believer died and went to Heaven. He was so happy to make it and to see all that God had for him. But at some point, Jesus came to him to say, even though He would want him to stay on, yet He has to release him because some brethren were asking for his resurrection and that they were standing on God’s word. So the Lord said He had no choice but to honour His word. The brother returned to his body where they were praying at his hospital bed. Boy he was sad and angry. Another situation is making requests while you are living in sin

RCCG Open Heavens Devotional Tuesday 18 June 2013 WHEN THE WIND BLOWS By Pastor E. A. Adeboye

RCCG Open Heavens Devotional Tuesday 18 June 2013 
By Pastor E. A. Adeboye

Memorise: And with the blast of Thy nostrils the waters were gathered together, the floods stood upright as an heap, and the depths were congealed in the heart of the sea.” Exodus 15:18
Read: John 20:21-22
Bible in one year:  Exodus 28-31
Key point: John the Baptist decided to decrease in order to create more room for Jesus. How much room do you have for the Holy spirit?
If you want to belong to the reigning team, sign a pact with the Holy Spirit. Severally in scriptures, the Holy Spirit is compared to the wind. Understanding some characteristics of the wind gives us some insight into the personality of the Holy Spirit. The wind as breeze can blow gently, we see the Holy Spirit exhibiting this trait in Samson. The Spirit first began to move him gently once in a while ¡n Judges 1 3:24-25. The Holy Spirit can also behave like a rushing mighty wind blowing suddenly, as was the case in Acts 2: 1-7. He can also move massively like a storm. At the front of the Red sea, Moses lifted his hands and the east wind blew throughout the night until the Red Sea parted (Exodus 14:19-22). While describing the experience later in Exodus 15:8, Moses said, 
“And with the blast of thy nostrils the waters were gathered together, the floods stood upright as an heap, and the depths were congealed in the heart of the sea”
In other words, this can be pictured as God sneezing and emitting the Spirit in the form of air from His nostrils and He parted the mighty Red sea into two. What a Mighty God we serve!
It is the wind that gives a mighty aeroplane its lift. The reason an aero plane  runs very fast before takeoff ¡s because air at a higher speed has a lower pressure than air at a lower speed. The air above the wings of the aeroplane before takeoff is at a higher speed that the air beneath it. The resulting higher pressure beneath the wings gives lift to the aeroplane taking it to the next level in flight. In 2Kings 2:9-1 5, two people were promoted to another realm when the wind of the Holy Spirit blew massively: Elijah got transported into the heavenly realm, while young Elisha a servant of the prophet was promoted to become father of the prophets. As you key into the supernatural, you shall be lifted to another level in Jesus name. However, when the wind comes, ¡t is capable of filling every available space. In John 20:21-22, when Jesus wanted to fill the disciples with the Holy Ghost, He breathed on them; meaning that the Holy Spirit should go and fill every space in the disciples. What space do you have for the Holy Spirit to fill? The more space you take away from the flesh the more you make available to Him.
