Bible reading: Deuteronomy 8:17-18.

Memory verse: Take us the foxes, the little foxes, that spoil the vines: for our vines have tender grapes. Songs of Solomon 2:15

Grace means Divine Assistance. Grace means “the Oil of ease”. Grace is the person of Jesus. Everything we were, we are and will be, are dependent on the Grace of God. By strength shall no man prevail (1 Sam.2:9b).

Frank Edwards is one of the foremost gospel artists in Nigeria. Hear him share his story:

“10 years ago, I was hawking on the streets of Enugu for my mother. We were so poor that we could hardly afford to eat. But, my mother always took me to Church. She always told me to serve God, and that is how I have lived my life. Even when it was difficult to eat, I have always lived a life of worship. That is me. That is my life! When I started singing, and my songs were being played everywhere, I had all kinds of offers. I was in South Africa for a programme, and some promoters came to me saying, ‘Frank, your songs are so good, and we would like to promote you, take you all over the world. However, you mention Jesus too much in your songs. Replace Jesus with God and we can do business together.’ Brethren, that offer was very tempting. You would think, ‘What is the big deal about replacing JESUS with GOD?’ So, I called my mother, and told her about the offer. She said, ‘Don’t mind them o! Don’t do it o! Holy Ghost fire burn all of them.’ So, I told them No! Today, God has taken my music all over! It’s a beautiful thing to see white people, Americans, singing my song and even Igbo songs that they don’t even know the meaning! God did it”.

A man who compromises reduces the standard of God over His life. Decide never to sell your birthright. Decide never to substitute your Jesus for anything this world has got to offer.

Quote: When you compromise God’s standard, you compromise your destiny.

Prophetic Word: The dragon of compromise is cursed in your life, in Jesus name.

Prayer Focus:

  1. I reject physical and spiritual compromise, in the name of Jesus.
  2. My Father, by your grace, take me to the mountain top of my destiny, in the name of Jesus!
