DAY 1: FRIDAY 2ND, JANUARY 2015
FOCUS: APPRECIATING GOD FOR HIS LOVE, DOMINION AND POWER
PROV. 15:29, ZACH. 7:13; JOHN 9:3, JAMES 4:3
INSIGHT FOR EFFECTIVE PRAYERS OF THE DAY
When God created this world in which we live today, we were not there. We were not yet in existence. Human beings were the last of the creation of God on earth. In His infinite mercy and love. He decided to make us the king over all other creatures and to be His representatives.
We are the objects of His love as well as the agents of that love. The dominion He gave to man was an absolute one. Through the consequent of human sin, the two great values were lost, which made the exhibition of love and dominion be seriously wanting in human lives and in the world at large.
The coming of Jesus to the world was meant to restore and install these great virtues back into our lives. Every genuinely born again and spirit-filled child of God is entitled to exhibit these virtues to the maximum. Such manifestations go a long way to put human lives in the right perspective. That is what the Church was meant to be, that was what GOFAMINT was from the beginning and that is what it is going to be from now on. Christians in the Church are meant to be both benefactors and beneficiaries of love and dominion. The manifestation of love and dominion in the lives of our brethren must be available for us to enjoy as well as available in our own lives for others to enjoy. We give thanks to God for those whose lives have become epitome of love and dominion in our Church hitherto. We believe that at the end of this prayer exercise this year, these valuable virtues of love and dominion would have been fully entrenched and established in our lives and Church. Each of us would be known as agents of love and dominion, while branches of our Churches would be recognized as love and dominion sanctuaries in Jesus’ name.
