inputs from both organizations on how to make
impact on the society in line with their respective
mandates” ahead of the elections.
Professor Yakubu noted that the long standing INEC
and NOA partnership was getting deeper and more
fruitful, but called for the review and strengthening
of relevant aspects of the NOA Act to enable the
Agency work more closely with INEC in the
conduct of future elections. Describing elections

bodies as “Siamese twins” which both have
presence in all States and Local Government Areas
of the country and always work together toward
hitch free elections, especially in the areas of voter
education and mobilization. He said NOA was a
“conduit and strategic platform for engagement
with the public” on matters of public interest,
adding that his Agency was prepared utilize its
platforms to mobilize both politicians and the
electorate, down to the grassroots level, “toward
rancor-free and possibly litigation-free elections
in Edo and Ondo States as well as for future
elections”.

The Good Shepherd

The Good Shepherd
Psalms 23.
  The Word of God says, the Lord is my Shepherd
and I shall not want, Jesus the Shepherd of your soul, the Lord of Your life,
the Master of your life, have you handed in over your life? If He gets control
of your actions and your thoughts, only then you make Jesus the Lord and
Shepherd of your life and you shall want nothing.

  When you make Jesus the Shepherd of your life He
will hold you by His side and make you lie down in green pastures. And
there will be total prosperity in your life. He will be your guide, your leader
to lead you and give you the still water where there will be peace. He is the
anchor of your soul.
     
     
  When you have His Word, His promise, His oath,
as an anchor to your soul you will have peace. Peace of God that surpasses all
understanding will guard your heart and mind. You are the good
Shepherd Jesus Christ.

  When you give full control He is the one who
will restore your soul. He will help you to renew your mind with the Word of
God, He will hold you by His side and He will make you walk in the path of
righteousness for His name sake.
     
   
  There will be total healing in your life, there
will be total peace in your life, and there will be total righteousness in your
life. Yes Lord when You are with me even though I walk through the valley
of the shadows of death, Jesus I will not fear because You are with me.
     
   
    When God is with you, who can be against you,
even in the midst of the troubles, even in the midst of the situation and
circumstance Oh Lord I know and I know that You are with me and when You are
with me Oh Lord Your total present is with me.

  Yes Lord I will not fear because Your Word is
giving me that faith, Your glory, total glory is here with me, Your Word and
Your Spirit they comfort me Oh Lord, Your Spirit they comfort me Oh Lord, Your
Word and Your anointing gives me total protection in my life.

  Yes Jesus this very moment you called me to this
banquet table in the present of my enemies. Jesus even as I am listening to
Your Word, satan is here but he cannot take that seed oh Lord because I
understand Your Word. Even as I understand Your Word Oh Lord You are
anointing me with fresh oil and here comes total power in me. You fill my heart
with joy in Your presence and surely Lord from now on Your goodness, Your
kindness, Your love, Your blessing, Your mercy will follow all the days of my
life.
   
  Yes Lord from now I will experience
abundance in my life, because You are my Good Shepherd. You are the
Shepherd of my soul and Lord I know and I know that I shall dwell in Your house
forever and with everlasting life with You.

  My dear brothers and sisters this is the promise
that God has given you as you make him the Shepherd of your soul. He is
blessing you with eternal life; He is blessing you with everlasting life in
heaven. Why are you desiring the passion and the craving that is leading you
away from the Good Shepherd, come and confess and tell Jesus from now on You
alone Jesus are the Shepherd of my soul  AMEN, AMEN.

So what
do you learn today?
1.  Jesus is our
good Shepherd

lays down His life for His sheep.
3. Once you commit your
life to Jesus he will guide you in the right path.

heart with his goodness, kindness, love, blessing and mercy.

Understanding Brings Conversion Part 3

Understanding Brings Conversion
Part 3

Act Chapter 28, here St. Paul is arrested by the Romans and is been put in
the prison he has an appointed day to speak the Word of God and the Jews are invited to listen to him. So watch what happens in Verse 23

   And when they had appointed him a day, there came many to him into his
lodging; to whom he expounded and testified the kingdom of God,
persuading them concerning Jesus, both out of the law of Moses, and our
of the prophets, from morning till evening. So Paul was speaking from
morning to evening about Jesus to the Jews, that Jesus prophecy is the
time from Moses from Genesis and he began to speak about the great
prophets and the prophecy of the Messiah. So he began to show the
scriptures which prophecies Jesus’s coming from morning to evening.

Now in spite of Paul preaching from morning to evening look at what verse 24 is saying

And some believe the things, which were spoken, and some believed not.

So when did the people begin to believe? It was when Paul was speaking to
them the word of God from the book of Moses to the prophets and speaking to them concerning Jesus right from the Old Testament. So when will you believe? See many at times it’s your mind set. Brother why don’t we
have an anointing session, a praise and worship? And then you lay hands
and get us healed and we go back home. That’s not going to bring any
conversion. So does that mean no praise and worship? Praise and worship
is a anesthesia that prepares you to listen to the Word of God.

So look at verse 5
And when they agreed not among themselves they departed, after that Paul
had spoken one word, Well spoke the Holy Ghost by Isaiah the prophet
unto our fathers.

Paul has being speaking from morning till evening and now there is disunity
in the house some are agreeing when they heard it they began to hear and believe but there were some who didn’t believe. As they were getting up and going Paul began to speak about the prophecy of Isaiah.

Acts 28:26-27

Saying, Go unto these people, and say, Hearing you shall hear, and shall not
understand; and seeing you shall see, and not perceive. For the heart of these people are waxed gross, and their ears are dull of hearing, and
their eyes have closed; lest they should see with their eyes, and hear
with theirs ears, and understand with their heart, and should be
converted and I should heal them.

So here the lord is saying only those who understand it will not only lead to conversion but it will lead to healing, deliverance, salvation,
property and every inheritance that Jesus has for you by dying on cross
for you. So what should you pray today that is going to change your
destination?

‘Lord bless with understanding because once I have that understanding the whole package is mine.’

Confession of the Day
We are the doers of the word, and not merely the hearers who deceive
themselves. For if any are hearers of the word and not doers.
