KEY SCRIPTURE; Mat 4:4 KJV” But he answered and said, It is written, Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of God.”

When Satan attempted to tempt the Lord to turn stones to bread, the Lord answered him, by saying man should not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceeds from the mouth of God. All physical things, that men do rely or use came from the word of God. He said all things were made by the word, and without it nothing was made John 1:3. This makes the word superior to every physical thing that we may depend on. We complicate matters for ourselves when we neglect the word to do our own thing. What Satan was asking the Lord to do was to act against the word and turn stones into bread, in order to satisfy His hunger.

To live by the word is to always seek what God’s word says about anything before, embarking on it. John 1:4,5 reveal that there is life in the word and this life is the light of men. The light is the master of darkness, or all satanic works. Any moment you keep faith with God’s word, there is a release of the life in the word to make you overcome any opposition, that may come from the evil one. You also save yourself from error.

1 Timothy 4:8 says, ‘For bodily exercise profiteth little: but godliness is profitable unto all things, having promise of the life that now is, and of that which is to come.” The Holy Spirit inspired the following words that, bodily exercise profits little. The are some brethren who give every attention to training and building their physical bodies, yet have no time to read, study or meditate on the word. Such people are sadly defeated by the schemes and strategies of the enemy because they no not how to overcome him. The verse said godliness, which is living the way of God. This involves living by the word and other acts of faith. The Lord says, it has profit now as well as in the life to come. Remember, life is spiritual, this means, there are supernatural personalities that influence our natural dealings. Failure to place God’s word first, makes you extremely vulnerable to any negative force that may seek to harm you. God’s word is the highest principle in the universe, every power is subjected to it. Living by the word, places you above any contrary power that may seek to affect you negatively.


God’s word is the highest law in this universe. I am totally given to the word. I meditate on it day and night. My way is constantly prosperous and victorious. I live above every evil influence because of the word that rules me.


Jos 1:8 KJV “This book of the law shall not depart out of thy mouth; but thou shalt meditate therein day and night, that thou mayest observe to do according to all that is written therein: for then thou shalt make thy way prosperous, and then thou shalt have good success.”

1Ti 4:15 KJV” Meditate upon these things; give thyself wholly to them; that thy profiting may appear to all.”


KEY SCRIPTURE: Gen 39:12 KJV” And she caught him by his garment, saying, Lie with me: and he left his garment in her hand, and fled, and got him out.”

We take a look at another character in the bible who also made his light shine so much that, God was glorified and many were blessed as a result of him. Joseph a beloved son of Jacob, grew up among his brothers but made sure he always told the truth and did that which was right. Gen 37:2. His brothers sold him into slavery yet He kept living an upright life. Gen 39:3 KJV” And his master saw that the LORD was with him and that the LORD made all that he did to prosper in his hand.” God does not endorse the actions of evildoers. For God to be with him, meant he consistently pursued righteousness.

His master Potiphar put Him in charge of his whole house. Potiphar’s wife saw how favoured Joseph was, and began to lust after him. She kept making advances on him, yet he refused. Remember to shine means exhibiting the fruits of righteousness.  Listen to Joseph’s response to her amorous requests. Gen 39:9 KJV “There is none greater in this house than I; neither hath he kept back any thing from me but thee, because thou art his wife: how then can I do this great wickedness, and sin against God?” Dear child of God, do not yield to fornication, for it is a sin against your very body, and will deem every light you have, so much that demons or devils, will easily flock your body and life.

Joseph ran away from her, yet she took hold of his cloths and used that as an evident to accuse Him, of seeking to sexually molest her. Joseph kept his uprightness even in the prison, and so God finally elevated him from, slavery , imprisonment to be become the next in command to king Pharoah. Dear child of God, you are the light of the world. Continue to be light and not darkness. Do not hide to do evil. Like Joseph maintain your brightness wherever you are. Remember what Jesus said light are not hidden under a bushel, but are placed on the top, so it can keep blighting the path of others. To be on top is to be significant in life. As light you are significant, so remain significant by shinning.


I am the light of the world and would keep shinning no matter where and how things turn out. I am continually keeping faith with God to keep shinning. So long as I keep shinning, I remain on top, that is become very significant in this world.


Eph 5:11 KJV” And have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather reprove them.”

Phi 2:15 KJV” That ye may be blameless and harmless, the sons of God, without rebuke, in the midst of a crooked and perverse nation, among whom ye shine as lights in the world;”


KEY SCRIPTURE: Dan 2:47 KJV” The king answered unto Daniel, and said, Of a truth it is, that your God is a God of gods, and a Lord of kings, and a revealer of secrets, seeing thou couldest reveal this secret.”.

We would consider how Daniel the exiled Jewish young man and his friends kept the light of God high up when the king Nebuchadnezzar had a dream which he claimed he had forgotten it, yet wanted the interpretation. We can find this story from Daniel 2:1-48.

King Nebuchadnezzar of Babylon called all the wise men, magicians of his kingdom, and told them he had a dream, but had forgotten the dream, and so these wise men should tell him the dream and give him the interpretation of it. He told them that if they were to get him  the answers  he will reward them, with so much benefits,  but if they are not able to find the answers, then they would all be killed. This condition is like most events or challenges in life. It offers problems, without solution, but demanding answers, which if you are not able to answer, it may cause your death.

The wise men in our story said the King’s demands was too much, and that no one could answer such a puzzle. The king quickly asked that every wise man in his kingdom be picked and slaughtered. Daniel and his young friends, who were being prepared to be among the fraternity of the wise men were also added to the wisemen to be killed. This is a condition that normally prevails in our day-to-day live encounters.

Daniel did not accept the King’s decision for them to be killed. He believed in his God who is able to do all things. In every life difficulty, the Christian’s stand is,  my God can do all things. He asked for audience with the king and pleaded for some time to seek the face of his God. Nothing is too big for our God to answer. Seek His face for a way out. Daniel was granted that wish. Never be afraid to say your God is able to make a way out, He would honour His name.

Daniel and his friends sought the face of the Lord who gave them the answer. Many Christians would have found solutions to the myriads of challenges that humans are faced with. Daniel was led to the king and then revealed the dream and its interpretation. The following was the result of Daniel’s exploits. Dan 2:47 KJV “The king answered unto Daniel, and said, Of a truth it is, that your God is a God of gods, and a Lord of kings, and a revealer of secrets, seeing thou couldest reveal this secret.” King Nebuchadnezzar did not know about the God of Daniel, yet because of this event he got to know him, and gave Him the glory. Daniel was also made a very great man in the kingdom of Babylon.

Our world is bedeviled with all kinds of problems, with some being life-threatening. God says call upon Him concerning these things, He would answer and show you great and mighty things that you have no idea about. Jeremiah 33:3.


Thank you, heavenly Father, for making me light to the world. I put my trust in you, as I seek your guidance to find out solutions as well as taking steps that will reveal your power and glory to my world. Thank you, Lord, for all your goodness.


Phil 2:15 KJV “That ye may be blameless and harmless, the sons of God, without rebuke, in the midst of a crooked and perverse nation, among whom ye shine as lights in the world;”

1Pet 2:9 KJV But ye are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an holy nation, a peculiar people; that ye should shew forth the praises of him who hath called you out of darkness into his marvellous light:


KEY SCRIPTURE: Matt:16 KJV” Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven.”

The Lord said we are the light of the world and so we must shine so much that, men will see it and give glory to God our father.  Shinning means bearing the fruits of righteousness. It is all about demonstrating the word in our lives. Our Lord Jesus led a kind of life, that the bible said His fame went abroad seeing the manifestation of the glory of God.  Great exploits are always demonstrated through faith in the word of God.

How can we shine in a world that has become so secular? The Lord taught in John 15;1-15 that, if we are to bear much fruit, then we must abide in Him. Abiding in Him involves how deep our fellowship with the Holy Spirit is.  The Holy Spirit is the glory of God according to Rom 6:4.He is also the exceeding great and resurrection power at work in us who believe according to Eph 1:19, 20.

We are called to shine   in every aspect of our lives. We are to shine in our moral life social life, business life, marital and every area of our relationship with men.

The Lord said He does nothing without receiving instructions from the Holy Spirit. What you need to do is to Learn to hear the voice of the Holy Spirit. The next act is to learn to wait for the instruction of the Holy Spirit. The Lord said in Matt 7:7, that ask, and it shall be given unto you, seek and you shall find. Knock and the door shall be opened unto you. Humanity is faced with many difficult problems that have no human solutions. I believe if we would learn to ask, seek, and knock before the Holy Spirit, in prayers, we would find answers to these needs. Wherever you find yourself you can make up your mind to shine. Understand that as a child of God, you have a better advantage over the man who is not saved.


Lord, grant me the heart to be diligent in all I do, trusting and following the counsel of the Spirit. Help me to learn to wait on the Holy Spirit for direction as well as being disciplined to wait on Him for ultimate answers to difficult issues. May the guidance of the Spirit bring that needed help to my world in Jesus’ name.


Dan 2:16-19 KJV” Then Daniel went in, and desired of the king that he would give him time, and that he would shew the king the interpretation. Then Daniel went to his house, and made the thing known to Hananiah, Mishael, and Azariah, his companions: That they would desire mercies of the God of heaven concerning this secret; that Daniel and his fellows should not perish with the rest of the wise men of Babylon. Then was the secret revealed unto Daniel in a night vision. Then Daniel blessed the God of heaven.”


KEY SCRIPTURE: Rom 4:17 KJV “(As it is written, I have made thee a father of many nations,) before him whom he believed, even God, who quickeneth the dead, and calleth those things which be not as though they were.”

God calls those things which be not as though they were. When the Lord was invited to go heal Lazarus, He wanted for a few those, and then asked His disciples to go and raise him up from sleep. His disciples remarked, Lord if he is sleeping, he would surely wake up. He then answered them, he is dead, but it was good that he was not there, so they would believe. The Lord spoke like God His father, who calls those things which be not as though they were. He was dead, yet He said He is asleep. The Lord made the same statement about Jarius daughter, who had died. Mark 5:39 KJV” And when he was come in, he saith unto them, Why make ye this ado, and weep? the damsel is not dead, but sleepeth. “

The Lord spoke out what he wanted, and not according to the pending situation. He called those things which be not as though they were. Well, He got what He wanted or said. This is the language of faith. Faith, according to Hebrews 11:1 is the assurance of things hoped for the evidence of things not seen. The Lord called what He hoped to get as though He already had it. This is what Joel 3:10 says.” Beat your plowshares into swords, and your pruninghooks into spears: let the weak say, I am strong.” All these are done on the grounds that would honour our faith stands.

Bishop David Oyedepo shared a story he experienced. He had to pay his working staff on a particular day, but there was no money. He called his cashier and told him to pay the staff by 2pm the next day. He has taught his cashier, never to say there is no money, whenever such instructions were given. The cashier just kept mute waiting for the hour to come. An hour or two before that pay time, a gentleman, from another state came with a cheque that was just about the amount to pay the whole staff. This was calling forth, what was not there as though it was. The Lord Jesus would want every child of God to speak that way. Speak health when sickness seem to attack your body. Call forth strength, when weakness seem to overwhelm you. This is God’s way of speaking, and He would honour your words.


Faith language is living in the answer, it is calling what you hope to see as already with you. I hope to have strength over my weak body, I say I am strong, Although I may be lacking financially, I declare I am very rich. God honours my faith with answers.



Heb 11:13 KJV “These all died in faith, not having received the promises, but having seen them afar off, and were persuaded of them, and embraced them, and confessed that they were strangers and pilgrims on the earth.”

Heb 11:19 KJV” Accounting that God was able to raise him up, even from the dead; from whence also he received him in a figure.”


KEY SCRIPTURE;1Th 5:18 KJV” In every thing give thanks: for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you.”

The life of the Christian should never be dry and living in a long period of depression. There is too much for us to be thankful about. The scriptures are full of exceeding great and precious promises that we have to acquaint ourselves with, so by them, we would have a lot to be thankful about. A thankful heart cannot be depressed.

The thankful Christian walks in an abundance of miracles.

What do we thank God about?

Thank God for being your shepherd and so you have everything you need.

Thank God for sending angels to help, protect and supply you with all you need. Heb 1:14

Thank God for in Christ all His promises are yes, and that whatever He has promised is already so in Christ Jesus.2 Corinth 1:20.

Thank God that He is your helper and your keeper who never, slumbers or sleeps, for He is the shield on your right hand that would not allow the sun to smite you by day that is no evil that prevails in the day would attack and overpower you, and would not allow the moon, to smite you, by night, that is no evil traveling by night would attack you. Ps 121:1-6

Thank God for blessing you with every spiritual blessing in heavenly places in Christ, including peace of mind, good health to your body, spiritual understanding and many other blessings. Eph 1:3.

Thank the Lord for air we breath freely, for the sun that supplies energy to us all and for the beautiful flowers, vegetation, and the sea. Thank God for such a beautiful world we have.

Thank God for all the wonderful and lovely friends we have around. Thank Him even for those who dislike you, for they help you learn, longsuffering and patience.

Thank Him for the many answered prayers. Thank Him for the many deliverances from all calamities. Thank him for the trials that come our way, that makes us see His faithfulness and the reality of His power. Fill your heart with thanksgiving. In each moment let a word of thanksgiving flow to the Father.

Thanksgiving is an act of expressing God’s faithfulness, He would always come to you with answers that would make you Thank him for it is His will that you always thank Him under all situations.


I thank you my heavenly father for your abundant goodness unto me. Thank you for giving me life. Thank you for saving my soul and making me a citizen of heaven, thank you for making me a master over devils, and giving me the right to use the name of Jesus on this earth. Thank you, thank you, thank you.



Joh 11:41 KJV” Then they took away the stone from the place where the dead was laid. And Jesus lifted up his eyes, and said, Father, I thank thee that thou hast heard me.”

1Co 1:4 KJV” I thank my God always on your behalf, for the grace of God which is given you by Jesus Christ;”


KEY SCRIPTURE:1Th 5:18 KJV” In every thing give thanks: for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you.”

The Lord tells us that, it is the will of God that in all things we give thanks. One may do this in a superficial or mechanical way, that will not benefit him or her much. Note, true thanksgiving draws us closer to the Lord, making us appreciate Him, loving Him as well as increasing our faith in Him. There is also the superficial thanksgiving, in which one gives thanks all right, because the scripture commanded it, yet it does not have any emotions of attachment and deep appreciation of God’s goodness.

One man in the scriptures who appreciated God’s goodness was King David. When the Ark of God was brought from Abinadab’s House, in Gibeah.2nd Samuel 6:1-21. David according to the bible, he danced with all His might, so much that his clothes nearly went off him. His wife Michal saw it and despised him in her heart. She was not silent about it, yet spoke to him, that he disgraced Himself before the daughters of Israel. David said to her that he was a mere shepherd boy when the Lord chose Him, in place of His father King Saul. He added, I will play and make myself vile before the Lord.2 Sam 6:20.

 What was the secret of David’s deep appreciation of the Lord goodness unto him? David was one who spent a great deal of time meditating about God’s goodness and greatness. Let’s look at a few statements He made about meditation.

Psalms 63:6 KJV “When I remember thee upon my bed, and meditate on thee in the night watches.”

Psalms 77:12 KJV” I will meditate also of all thy work, and talk of thy doings.”

Psalms 119:148 KJV” Mine eyes prevent the night watches, that I might meditate in thy word.”

All these verses show us that King David spent a great deal of time reflecting over God his nature, attribute and many more. This made him to love the Lord the more, caused him to deeply thank God.


I will meditate on the goodness of God to me. Indeed, God is good and will forever be gracious of His kindness unto me. In all things and at all times I will thank Him.



KEY SCRIPTURE:1Th 5:18 KJV “In every thing give thanks: for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you.”

Thanksgiving is an act that liberates man from satanic controlled. The cream of the devil’s onslaught is you make man blame God, or at best to complain. Anyone who finds himself in such a state has freely given himself or herself to the devil. He has tied God’s hands from working in HIS life. The Holy Spirit cautions us to do all things without murmuring and disputing or complaining (Phil 2:14). Rather He tells us to give thanks in all situations. This means whether times are good or bad, we must continually thank the Lord. When the sun shines, we must thank Him, and when the rains fall in torrents, we must still give Him thanks.

Why must we always thank the Lord.

The first response is that He has asked us to give Him thanks under all situations.

Secondly, thanking God even at bad times means that we acknowledge He is in control of all things and His thought concerning us are thoughts of peace and goodwill. Our thanksgiving causes us to take a stand with Him and subsequently partake of that goodwill He has for us. When a man grows bitter and hurting as a result of what happens, he takes a stand with the devil, and so gives expression to those negative utterances from the devil and subsequently an access for him to control that individual’s life. It is always good to give thanks.

Apostle Paul by the agency of the Holy Spirit instructs us in times of anxiety never to allow that negative condition to take us, but with prayer, supplication and thanksgiving WE should make our request unto the Lord, and the peace of God which passes understanding shall keep your hearts and minds in Christ Jesus.

Thanksgiving is always a d3vlaration of our faith in God and our faith in such times brings a turnaround.  In Acts 16:25,-31, when Paul and Silas were arrested and locked up in a dungeon in the prison at Macedonia. Instead of lamenting over their plight, they praised the Lord and thanked Him. The result was an absolute turnaround of their situation. The was an earthquake, and the stocks and chains were brokered. In acts 5:41 apostles Peter and John rejoiced for the opportunity to suffer for the master. They thanked the Lord.


Thank you heavenly father, for your love and power. Nothing takes you by surprise, I thank you in all things. I am forever seated with you in heavenly places, far above all Principalities and power or name, and so, no matter what happens, I am still higher than them all. Nothing depresses me, for I have overcome all of them.



Psalms 50:14 KJV “Offer unto God thanksgiving; and pay thy vows unto the most High:

Psalms 26:7 KJV That I may publish with the voice of thanksgiving, and tell of all thy wondrous works.


KEY SCRIPTURE: Rom 16:20 KJV” And the God of peace shall bruise Satan under your feet shortly. The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you. Amen.”

Dear brother/ Sister, the right place for the devil to be, is under your feet. He must remain in subjection to us. Our Lord Jesus fully demonstrated that, and that is how He would want us to live. Unfortunately, most children of God are under Satan’s control. Please note, Satan always needs your cooperation to be able to control, and manipulate the life of the child of God. The Lord said, John 14:30 KJV” Hereafter I will not talk much with you: for the prince of this world cometh, and hath nothing in me.”

He said the Prince of this world comes, but he has nothing in me. Satan seeks to deposit his words, ways, feelings and images in men, so he would be able to manipulate and even destroy them.

One of the acts of Satan and his devils that he deposits in men is fear. Fear is basically, faith in the ability of the enemy. If you have fear of what the devil can do or will do, then ,God our father is very helpless at doing anything for you .Fear is choosing to put your faith in the devil. The story of Job may seem, God just gave him over to the devil, yet a good study of the book, shows that he had fear of the acts of Satan in him. It took a matter of time for it to show forth. Listen to what He said. Job 3:25,36 KJV “For the thing which I greatly feared is come upon me, and that which I was afraid of is come unto me. I was not in safety, neither had I rest, neither was I quiet; yet trouble came.” Trouble came because the enemy had succeeded in depositing his works in Him. He also voiced out what he believed about the devil. This act actually established what was in his heart.

2nd Corinth 10:5 says, “Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ;” You can’t dominate the devil if he has put his kind of pictures, thoughts and ideas, that exalts itself above the knowledge of God in you. You must cast every non scriptural image or thought, if you are to have dominance over the enemy. There are some brethren who harbour bitterness, and have all kinds of negative happenings around them. These people wonder why things go that way? The Lord Jesus has perfectly triumphed over Satan and his cohorts, yet if you submit to their promptings, threats, and suggestions, then you have freely given the defeated one the right to control you. To be in control over them, decide never to submit to any pictures, suggestions, threats or any view that comes from devils.

You can say with the Lord, the devil comes. But has nothing in me.


Jesus my Lord, triumphed over Satan, and his cohorts and so I have likewise triumphed over them. I refuse every non scriptural thought, desire or fear. My words always reveal my superiority over Satan and his inability to Lord it over me. I am a master over devils, I have a sound mind, self control, health, and prosperity. Hallelujah.



Mar 4:24 KJV” And he said unto them, Take heed what ye hear: with what measure ye mete, it shall be measured to you: and unto you that hear shall more be given.”

Eph 4:26 KJV “Be ye angry, and sin not: let not the sun go down upon your wrath: Neither give place to the devil.”


KEY SCRIPTURE: Luke 10:19 KJV “Behold, I give unto you power to tread on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy: and nothing shall by any means hurt you.”

Life is Spiritual, and there is an unseen enemy, or adversary of man who schemes to hold all man in bondage to him. Apostle John wrote the following about Him. Rev 12:9 KJV” And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent called the Devil, and Satan, which deceiveth the whole world: he was cast out into the earth, and his angels were cast out with him.” This invisible being deceives to kill or destroy a man in hell. It is the great desire of our Lord that we dominate over Him. The Lord informs us in our key scripture He has given us power or the authority to tread on serpents and scorpions and over all the power of the enemy, and He added, and nothing shall by any means hurt you.

What is the meaning of this verse. The Lord is saying He has given us the right to exercise power over the enemy, so that nothing may hurt us. In the statement, He said we should tread over them, and nothing would hurt us. What would happen if we do not exercise that authority to dominate over them? If we don’t rule over them, then evil may happen to us.

How would we tread over them.

1. We trample over these devils through our words of authority, and commands we give in faith.

2. We also trample over them through our prayers, as we bind, resist or make declarations to restrict the enemy in any way.

3. We trample or tread over them when we refuse to yield to their influence. Devils have power over a child of God so long as he obeys, attends, or responds to their instructions, commands, or influence. If you do not heed what they say, but resist them through your words, they would submit to you.

4. We also exercise that dominion by putting on the whole armour of God. Eph 6:10-18.

We must come to terms with the victory our Lord won over the devils, is our victory. Col 2:15 KJV “And having spoiled principalities and powers, he made a shew of them openly, triumphing over them in it.” We have overcome the enemy through our Lord Jesus and must always claim that victory and live likewise.

On this note, we must acknowledge that no matter what happens, never should the child of God yield to any attacks of the enemy and claim that the enemy is dominating his or her life. No matter what happens insist that you are a master over the devils. If you fall into any sin, quickly repent and surrender to the Lordship of Jesus. Never allow the flesh to rule over you.


The Lord Jesus has given the authority to dominate over the enemy. I daily exercise my authority over them. I give no place to them, in thought or deed. No matter what the enemy may raise against me I am more than a conqueror over them in Jesus’ name.



James 4:7 KJV “Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you.”

Eph 6:11 KJV “Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil.”
