THE SPECIAL THEME IN GOD’S DISCIPLINE IS LOVE! When people hear the Word ‘Discipline, oftentimes, their first thought is on punishment and chastisement. However, our Esteemed Zonal Director, teaching on the ‘Discipline’ aspect of the series: Character, Integrity, Discipline and Excellence, which she began last Wednesday explained that this isn’t always so. Discipline, she explained, is the attempt to improve behavior or orderliness by training, conditions or bringing of specific roles- conditions that are imposed for the improvement of behaviors. The Holy Ghost is a person of discipline, integrity, and order (Genesis 1:1-4), which is why it's important to be in Church because that’s where He has placed the 5-fold ministry gifts over us for the training and discipline of His body that we may be thoroughly trained for His work. The Church is a place for the coaching on the things of the Spirit - to be triumphant and victorious in every circumstance. She added that Discipline isn't only about punishment and chastisement and that the central theme in God's discipline isn’t to destroy, humiliate or embarrass but Love (Revelation 3:19) - to bring up to maturity and perfect discipline. Having this knowledge, do consider the following nuggets from the glorious message: ⭐ God can’t use you or take you from one level of service to another except you're disciplined/trained because training makes you reliable, dependable. Reuben was described as unstable, untrained, and unable to control his appetite- he had all the abilities but couldn't possess, because he lacked the character and character is built through discipline ⭐ Always desire to be a vent for the manifestation of the Spirit because God wants to do big things with you but you have to be ready by way of training. This is because there's an improvement in behavior that's required. ⭐God wants us to mature through the training by His Word- He can stir in you a desire, but the action must come from you (John 7:37-38). No matter your opinion or culture, the final authority must always be the Word of God, because He wants to bring order in your life and He does that through the coaching of His Word. ⭐ As good as being disciplined is, there's a higher level in self-discipline (1 Corinthians 9:24-27). Self-control /self-discipline is a proactive measure to limit the reactive nature from outside sources, which is important because God doesn't want you to lose your crown and His desire is that there'll be a complete manifestation of His life through you — He doesn't want anything holding you back, but wants you to shine very brightly, which is why He's training you (Luke 16:10). ⭐ One of God's principle for advancement is diligence with what you've been given, including your body. Don't wait to be chastened or rebuked, invoke self-discipline on yourself, it prepares you for the next level. ⭐ God desires that when you start something, you finish it; He wants you to be a perfecter, a finisher, one that completes that which is committed to you (Zechariah 4:8-9). #CELVZ

PRAY FOR ALL THE SAINTS AND CHURCHES AROUND THE WORLD (1) Colossians 1:9-12 says, ”For this cause we also, since the day we heard it, do not cease to pray for you, and to desire that ye might be filled with the knowledge of his will in all wisdom and spiritual understanding; That ye might walk worthy of the Lord unto all pleasing, being fruitful in every good work, and increasing in the knowledge of God; Strengthened with all might, according to his glorious power, unto all patience and longsuffering with joyfulness; Giving thanks unto the Father, which hath made us meet to be partakers of the inheritance of the saints in light”. For 15min at 12noon and 10pm (Local), and from 12noon GMT, for the next 24hours in our groups, we’ll pray fervidly in tongues, and pray specially for saints of God around the world; that they’ll stand firm in all the will of God, the Word abiding in them continually and increasingly, causing them to walk in the fullness of their inheritance in Christ. Pray that they’ll walk in the revelation of the love of God in increasing measure, bearing fruit in every good work, fulfilling their purpose without reproach. Jude 1:24-25 says, “Now unto him that is able to keep you from falling, and to present you faultless before the presence of his glory with exceeding joy, To the only wise God our Saviour, be glory and majesty, dominion and power, both now and ever. Amen. We’ll also pray for those facing challenges in their faith, and for those whom Satan is stirring off the course of their calling in Christ through various temptations and trials. Pray that their faith fail not, that they be strengthened by the Spirit in their inner man, triumphing by the Word sown in their hearts, and their faith prevails in all circumstances. Declare that they hold fast to their calling, living in and by the Word, in every situation, that they may finish their course with joy, bringing glory to the Father in the Name of the Lord Jesus Christ. Amen.
PRAY FOR THE SICK The Bible says,“Beloved, I wish above all things that thou mayest prosper and be in health, even as thy soul prospereth”(3 John 1:2) It’s God’s desire that men live in perfect health. Luke 5:12-13 declares: “And it came to pass, when he was in a certain city, behold a man full of leprosy: who seeing Jesus fell on his face, and besought him, saying, Lord, if thou wilt, thou canst make me clean.And he put forth his hand, and touched him, saying, I will: be thou clean. And immediately the leprosy departed from him” This was God’s will in manifestation. Act 10:38 says, “How God anointed Jesus of Nazareth with the Holy Ghost and with power: who went about doing good, and healing all that were oppressed of the devil; for God was with him”. Isaiah 33:24 (NIV) says, “No one living in Zion will say, "I am ill…” For 15min at 12noon and 10pm (Local), and from 12noon GMT for the next 24 hours, in our various prayer groups, we’ll pray mostly in tongues, and also intercede fervidly for those who are sick, that they receive the good news of divine healing and health in Christ; God’s grace and mercy extended to them for quick recovery and perfection, as the healing power of Christ is manifested in their bodies. Pray specially for Christians experiencing various health challenges; that their faith be strengthened and the reality of divine health, which we have in Christ, would become their consciousness and vital experience. Declare that everywhere they are, they’re raised up healthy and strong, serving the Lord unhindered. Amen. Remember, we all pray at 12noon and 10pm (Local Time); if your group is scheduled to pray today, confirm the time and ensure you join in; and lastly, take at least an extra 15min daily, when you're not scheduled to pray by joining ongoing prayers @PastorChrisLiveTV, showing on the PastorChrisLive SuperUser Notification Banner on your KingsChat Timeline Page; or, on the @PastorChrisLiveTV located at the bottom of your KingsChat profile Page.
