Sort your waste for recycling, LAWMA MD urges Lagosians

The Managing Director of the Lagos Waste Management Authority (LAWMA), Dr. Muyiwa Gbadegesin, has again urged residents to imbibe the culture of waste sorting at source by dropping all recyclable items in one bag and other waste items in another. This comes on the heels of the recently launched Blue Box Program of the state government.

He spoke at Orile bus stop during a road show organized by LAWMA along Lagos Badagry Expressway, to create awareness among residents and to distribute waste bags to them.

According to him, the Authority embarked on the massive sensitization program, to draw the attention of residents in the area to the need for proper sanitation and cleaner surroundings.

BY: PASTOR E.A ADEBOYE

Thank You Father.

Hallelujah.

(Tonight, before you begin to praise Him, there is a great danger in getting too familiar with God. Because we are so used to miracles, signs and wonders; we are beginning to take them for granted and these things don’t happen everywhere.

If you are the man who woke up in the morning, thinking that your wife is asleep and suddenly you discover she is not asleep, she is dead and then you remember that the servant of God said last month that the dress you wore (because some of you did not take that word seriously) that the dress you wore that night has been specially anointed.

And you got that dress and somehow rap it round her because by now she is stiff and you are on your way to the hospital and on your way to the hospital your wife came back to life. Read more

New Glory Devotional: THE POWER IN YOUR TONGUE 2 – Friday, October 5, 2012

By Pastor Ayo Agbelusi

Memorise: “Let all bitterness, and wrath, and anger, and clamour, and evil speaking, be put away from you, with all malice.” [Eph. 4: 31]

Read: Eph. 4: 29-31

We shall continue today from yesterday’s message on the power in your tongue. It is evident from the text we read yesterday (James 3:1-12) that your tongue, though a little member of your body has enough power to direct your whole life. The rightful use of this member of your body will enhance productivity, progress and success, not only in your life but also in the lives of the people you come in contact with. As a bona fide child of God, it’s therefore expected that you get your words seasoned with grace such that you minister life and not death each time you communicate or respond to issues around you.

“Let your speech be always with grace, seasoned with salt, that you may know how you ought to answer every man.” Colossians 4:6

You can lead a quiet and peaceable life if you will allow the Holy Spirit to tame your tongue.” But the tongue can no man tame; it is an unruly evil, full of deadly poison.” James 3:8. You need God to be able to speak the right words.  Your marriage can never be heaven on earth if you fail to learn how to turn the usage of your tongue around for good in all modesty and humility. Many homes are in shambles today because of mere exchange of words. Likewise many great relationships have hit the rocks because of the wrong use of words. A lady confessed to me how she missed the love of her life because she couldn’t control her manner of speech during discussions. You should know that what you say with your mouth can never be interpreted the same way by different listeners. Also, once you have spoken, you can never take back what you said. You must therefore be careful when releasing your words so that your intentions will not be misconstrued.

Beloved, it’s time you examine yourself. Do you speak the right words or use foul language? James 3:9-10 says: “Therewith bless we God, even the Father; and therewith curse we men, which are made after the similitude of God. Out of the same mouth proceedeth blessing and cursing. My brethren, these things ought not so to be.” You can desire a change today. You can develop the virtue of holy silence. Holy silence produces peace, reconciliation, forgiveness, etc. It doesn’t defend itself, argue, and seek the last word. Moreover it teaches you to bridle your tongue. You won’t need to talk all the time. Must you be known everywhere or speak on every issue? Jesus is the example in this regard. “He was oppressed, and he was afflicted, yet he opened not his mouth: he is brought as a lamb to the slaughter, and as a sheep before her shearers is dumb, so he openeth not his mouth.” Isa. 53:7.

You can also take this issue of your tongue to God in prayers. David did pray: “Set a watch, O Lord, before my mouth; keep the door of my lips.” Ps. 142:3. Until the door of your lips is kept from foul and annoying words, you may not enjoy the desired peace on the earth.  The word of the Lord says: “Be not rash with thy mouth, and let not thine heart be hasty to utter anything before God: for God is in heaven, and thou upon earth: therefore let thy words be few.” Eccl.5:2. The later part of  Eccl.5:3 reads: “a fool’s voice is known by multitude of words.”

Make up your mind to speak the right words at all times. The word of God is the best word ever known. You are either speaking the mind of God or the counsel of the devil. Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly in all wisdom. Read more of the scriptures to get a good picture of what is expected of you per time. Don’t allow the word of the Lord to depart from your mouth, mediate on it day and night (Joshua 1:8). The more you dwell on His words the better you become as a Christian and with the help of the Holy Spirit, your tongue will begin to produce life and not death. Beloved, as you yield yourself continuously to God, you will forever be a blessing to the generations of the world. Don’t ever forget this: There’s Power in your Tongue.

PRAYER:

Father, help me to yield every member of my body to the control of the Holy Spirit. I refuse to be a victim of the wrong usage of my tongue.

New Glory Devotional: THE POWER IN YOUR TONGUE 1 – Thursday, October 4, 2012

By Pastor Ayo Agbelusi

Memorise: “For in many things we offend all. If any man offend not in word, the same is a perfect man, and able also to bridle the whole body.” (James 3:2).

Read: James 3:1-12

“Death and life are in the power of the tongue: and they that love it shall eat the fruit thereof.” (Proverbs 18:21).

Your tongue, though little, is a strong member of your body that you must not use carelessly. If you live carelessly with your tongue, you will in no time live a careless life on the earth. The tongue is a major control of the body. If your body is under total control, you can be sure a glorious life awaits you here on earth.

Many have been destroyed due to the misuse of their tongues. Idle words are dangerous. They have a direct negative impact on the life you live. You can’t make wrongful negative confessions about your situation and your life and expect positive results afterwards. What you think is what you’ll say and what you say has every right to stay. “Say unto them, As truly as I live, saith the LORD, as ye have spoken in mine ears, so will I do to you:” (Numbers 14:28).

Your tongue is so powerful. It reveals your personality and depth. Your words are the yardstick by which your wisdom and your level of spiritually are measured. It’s better to remain silent than to bring yourself low due to the wrong use of words. Your tongue will not only build or destroy your life, it also has the same effect on the lives of the people you come in contact with. You can make a glorious destiny through the correct use of your tongue and you can also destroy an enviable destiny when you talk loosely about people and things you know nothing about. You are either building or destroying destinies by the way you use your tongue.

“Out of the same mouth proceedeth blessing and cursing. My brethren, these things ought not so to be.” (James 3:10).

We have seen many born again Christians of long-standing whose tongues yet defile. How can you confess Jesus genuinely and your words not prove you have been with the Lord. The fruits of the lips of so many Christians are worse than that of some unbelievers. Foul words, unholy jesting, crazy jokes, dirty language and even cursing are some fruits we see in out midst. But hear the word of the Lord to you concerning this: “Let no corrupt communication proceed out of your mouth, but that which is good to the use of edifying, that it may minister grace unto the hearers.” (Ephesians 4:29).

What are you offering God and man from your lips? “By him therefore let us offer the sacrifice of praise to God continually, that is, the fruit of our lips giving thanks to His name.” (Hebrews 13:15). Don’t deceive yourself, you know where you belong as far as the use of the tongue is concerned. If that member of your body is not under control, if God is not continually blessed and if the people around you cannot testify of the good words from your lips, then you need to check yourself and make all necessary adjustments.

PRAYER:

Please help me to control my whole body and life through the right use of my tongue.

Open Heavens Devotional: WATCH OVER YOUR HEAD – Tuesday, August 14, 2012

By Pastor E.A. Adeboye

Memorise:  Pray for us: for we trust we have a good conscience, in all things willing to live honestly. Hebrews 13:18

Read: 1 Timothy 2:1-4

In 2 Kings 2:14, Elisha smote the River Jordan and asked for the God of Elijah. This is indicative of the fact that even though his master had left the scene, his master’s God was still around since He does not change. On the other hand, that same call was another way of saying: “Thou God of my daddy, I need you now”. For you to call on the God of your spiritual father, it is expected that your spiritual father must have been a man with a link to God. If there is no evidence of a working relationship between God and that man of God, be very careful. Be wary of who you call your father in the Lord because whatever happens to the father will likely happen to the son. Be mindful of who ordains or lays hands on your head, including your hair dresser or barber. Some chant incantations while handling the hair of customers. Some of such who became converted have testified of the evil they do with people’s hair.

The head of a human being is a very important part of the body. Never toy with it! The governments of the world recognise its importance hence they ask you to take a passport photograph as a sure mark of identification, since they know that through a surgical transplant, you could change your heart, liver, kidney, etc., but not your head. This is also why you need to intercede for your head- your husband, father, or pastor because if it is well with the head, it will be well with other parts of the body. But if the head is taken off, other parts of the body will be paralysed. If you pray for your head, you are indirectly praying for yourself. Pray for your leader and it will be well with you. In addition, by his outcry, Elisha was asking God to show Himself now. Although Psalms 46:1 says God is a present help, yet sometimes you may need to cry out to provoke His intervention. This is why I always ask people when they want their miracle. It could be now or later, they are free to decide. By his cry, Elisha also meant that, since he was to do the work of his ministry on the other side of Jordan, what was the essence of the double portion anointing if he could not go over the Jordan. When do you need your miracle? Tell God now.

KEY POINT:

A wise wife intercedes for her husband daily but a foolish woman leaves her husband at the mercy of enemies and circumstances.

Open Heavens Devotional: MASTER YOUR DESIRES – Saturday, July 28, 2012

By Pastor E.A. Adeboye

Memorise: All things are lawful unto me, but all things are not expedient: all things are lawful for me, but I will not be brought under the power of any. 1 Corinthians 6:12

Read: 1 Corinthians 6:11-13

If God has blessed you with wealth and riches, be extremely cautious so that your prosperity does not become your undoing. Solomon was so blessed that because he could afford most things that came his way, he went on an acquisition spree. He bought everything money could buy and acquired all that his eyes liked. He found himself in a pit of self-indulgence. In Ecclesiastes 2:10, he said:

And whatsoever mine eyes desired I kept not from them, I withheld not my heart from any joy; for my heart rejoiced in all my labour: and this was my portion of all my labour.

He had lost control! His money was now pushing him in every direction. Has God blessed you? Praise God! But never let it get to the point where you are no longer led by the Spirit but by the spirit of mammon. You should remain in control of what you have and not the other way. To this end Paul says:

All things are lawful unto me, but all things are not expedient: all things are lawful for me, but I will not be brought under the power of any. 1 Corinthians 6:12

You don’t have to buy something just because you can afford it. There are many things you can buy off the shelf but you don’t because you do not need them. Abundance can kill and power without control corrupts. To distinguish themselves according to their class, rich men eat certain processed foods which at the end of the day give them special illness which the poor do not have. Many people like power but they fail to realize that it is a two-edged sword. Keep your power under lock and key! Deliberately refrain from over indulging yourself. If a water bed will take away your prayer life, don’t buy it or you have bought it, give it out. If television programmes will continue to tempt you, avoid the box. If a particular type of car or house will make you to become proud, do something about it. Never allow what was meant to serve you become your lord.

PRAYER POINTS:

Father, help me to put my desires under the control of your Spirit in me. Thank you for the past conventions of the Redeemed Christian Church of God. I pray that this year’s Convention will witness God’s special visitation, power and harvest of souls as never experienced.

Open Heavens Devotional: LEAVE YOUR PAST! – Tuesday, July 24, 2012

By Pastor E.A. Adeboye

Memorise: Brethren, I count not myself to have apprehended: but this one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind, and reaching forth unto those things which are before. Philippians 3:13

Read: Psalms 37:23-25

When God uses one of His servants to bless you, you can appreciate that servant of God but appreciate God much more. Why? God is the Source of blessing while His servant is only a vessel. Never turn a vessel into your source. If you do, both you and the vessel may get into trouble with God. It was in light of this knowledge that Elisha, despite his devotion to Elijah did not forget the God of Elijah. He called for the God of Elijah and not for Elijah or his anointing at the River Jordan (2 Kings 2:13-14). Elisha faced a new reality after the departure of Elijah. It was a new phase for him. You need to walk in the understanding that life is in phases. When one phase ends, another begins. Psalms 37:25 says:

I have been young, and am old; yet have I not seen the righteous forsaken, nor his seed begging bread.

According to this scripture, there is the phase of being a youth and another phase of being old. A new phase had just begun in the life of Elisha. The phase of Elisha the servant, who went everywhere with his master had just ended and another phase of Elisha the national prophet with several attendants has just begun. When the time for his next phase came, he refused to continue in the old phase.

You must be ready to move forward. Stop living in the past. In 1 Samuel 25:1, after mourning the death of Samuel, David continued with his journey. Life continues irrespective of the challenges of each day, and so must you. Paul had to adopt a strategy of forgetting his past so that he could face his future (Philippians 3:12-14). Some people have lost their future to their past because somehow, they were never able to put the past behind them. Have you lost someone you love so much? Move on from that spot! Have you lost someone who promised to help sponsor your education or help set you up in business? Move on from that spot and another helper will surface. You could also receive direct help from above. Never allow past failures hinder your future success. Also, never allow past victories and successes hinder future ones. Stop dwelling in your past! As long as you remain at that bus stop of life, no new thing will come to you. Move forward! Take a step into your future today!

KEY POINT:

If you don’t leave your past, it will continue to hunt you. 

Bible in one year: John 18-21

Open Heavens Devotional: LOSING YOUR WORTH? – Thursday, January 12, 2012

By Pastor E.A. Adeboye

Memorise: Can a man take fire in his bosom, and his clothes not be burned? Proverbs 6:27

Read: Proverbs 6:25-29

There is nothing that cheapens a man like sin; there is nothing that destroys the destiny of a man, family, community or nation like sin. For example so many great men in the church, political and sports world have been made objects of ridicule by sex. I pray you will never fall into that trap in Jesus name. Proverbs 14:34 says sin comes with reproach. If you observe a decline in favour, fortunes and blessings or see that you are becoming an item of merchandise or manipulation in the hands of your enemies, check out your spiritual state: You have probably gone ‘down’ to Egypt.

For by means of a whorish woman a man is brought to a piece of bread: and the adulteress will hunt for the precious life. Proverbs 6:26

Bread is an item of merchandise and also an item for consumption. The truth is, if you are a fornicator, you are not only an item for sale but also food for the teeth of your enemies. Fornication sells you into the hands of your enemies. If you doubt it ask Samson. His sexual sins helped to reveal the secret of his life and sell him into the hands of his enemies. Fornication sells your destiny. Do you say, since I am a pastor, I can continue to fornicate or commit adultery once in a while and nothing will affect my destiny? Oh how wrong! You have already lost your destiny! You are just awaiting replacement. All of God’s grace operating in your life will soon cease completely. Repent today, run to the Cross and make your ways right. And immediately embark on prayer and fasting, asking for a restoration of your destiny.

KEY POINT:

For God to prosper you, you must be in right standing in your relationship with Him.

Bible in one year: Ecclesiastes 10-12
