Bible Reading: John 16: 15

Memory Verse:  No one has greater love [nor stronger commitment] than to lay down his own life for his friends. John 16:15 (AMP)

Sing the song: The steadfast love of the Lord never ceaseth… When God falls in love with you, every challenge you face will lead to a testimony.  Daddy E. A. Adeboye once wrote: The day you discover that you are beloved of God, you can begin to rejoice because each time a challenge comes, God is going to bring a testimony out of it for you. Infact, the greater the problem, the greater should be your rejoicing. For those whom God loves, He will from time to time give them a new testimony and you cannot have a new testimony except you have a new problem.

A testimony is the result of a problem that is miraculously solved. That is why when I face challenges, I  rejoice. I rejoice because a new challenge means a new testimony is on the way. Infact, those of us who are convinced beyond any doubt that He loves us look forward to challenges because we know that, with every challenge, there would be a miracle around the corner. Do you believe that God loves you? If you do, why do you worry so much about the challenges you are facing? Why do you lose sleep over something that He has already decided to use to bring glory to His name? ]

Beloved of God, don’t worry yourself unnecessarily. You can relax, God is planning to use your story to show the whole world how great He is. You just ensure that you don’t do anything to make Him change His mind about loving you, then leave the rest to Him. He will shock your enemies. New challenges means new testimonies.

Call to Salvation: Romans 5:8(NLT) says, “But God demonstrates His own love towards us, in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us”. Do you know God has always loved you even in your sinful state? Wouldn’t you rather give Him full control of your life in return for His love? Tomorrow may be too late.

Quote: The love that leaves the 99 sheep for one stray sheep. What an amazing love!

Prophetic Decree: May Jesus never change His mind from loving you, in Jesus name.

Prayer Focus 

1. Sing the hymn: “When Life’s Billow You Are Tempest Tossed” on page 105.

2. Every mark of hatred upon my life, by the reason of today’s message, be converted to divine love, in Jesus name.

3. O Lord, please help me to position myself closer to You, in Jesus name.

4. O Lord, please help me never to do anything that will make You change your mind from loving me.

5. O Lord, by your divine love that passes all understanding, please draw me closer to you, in Jesus name.



1. When upon life’s billows you are tempest tossed,
When you are discouraged, thinking all is lost,

Count your many blessings name them one by one,

And it will surprise you what the Lord hath done.


Count your blessings, name them one by one;

Count your blessings, see what God hath done;

Count your blessings, name them one by one,

And it will surprise you what the Lord hath done.

2. Are you ever burdened with a load of care?

Does the cross seem heavy you are called to bear?

yCount your many blessings, every doubt will fly,

And you will be singing as the days go by.

3. When you look at others with their lands and gold,

Think that Christ has promised you His wealth untold.

Count your many blessings, money cannot buy

Your reward in heaven, nor your Lord on high.

4. So amid the conflict, whether great or small,

Do not be discouraged, God is over all;

Count your many blessings, angels will attend,

Help and comfort give you to your journey’s end.
