And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus (Philippians 4:7).
In 2 Corinthians 2:10-11, Paul said, “To whom ye forgive anything, I forgive also: for if I forgave anything, to whom I forgave it, for your sakes forgave I it in the person of Christ; Lest Satan should get an advantage of us: for we are not ignorant of his devices.” Here, the Spirit, through the Apostle Paul, highlights the importance of forgiving others, so that Satan doesn’t take advantage of the situation. It’s the way to allow the peace of Christ to rule in your heart.
You may have a reason to be offended or angry, but Ephesians 4:26 says, “Be ye angry, and sin not: let not the sun go down upon your wrath.” Some have left the church because they were angry, and others have quit their jobs because of anger. Some have accommodated anger against others for so long, without realizing its destructive effect on their own lives.
Practise the Word. Don’t retain anger in your heart; give it up quickly. You may say, “But what so-and-so did against me caused me terrible pain”; it makes no difference. When you’re filled with the Spirit, your heart is ruled with peace and you live joyfully and in love, irrespective of the actions of others.
Read what the Word says in James 5:13: “Is any among you afflicted? let him pray…”; he didn’t say, “Let him fight or be vengeful”; neither did He say, “Let him tell the whole world about it.” The word “afflicted” in that verse also means to be aggrieved or offended. He says if that happens to you, pray about it. Don’t get troubled and become bitter.
The Bible says, “Be anxious about nothing; in everything, by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving, let your request be made known to God” (Philippians 4:6), and His peace will rule in your heart.
Dear Father, thank you for pouring out your love on me lavishly. I share the same love with those in my world, loving them unconditionally. Thank you for giving me the capacity to forgive and love like you do, in Jesus’ Name. Amen.
Colossians 3:13 CEV
“Put up with each other, and forgive anyone who does you wrong, just as Christ has forgiven you.”
1 John 3:14
“We know that we have passed from death unto life, because we love the brethren. He that loveth not [his] brother abideth in death.”
“And when ye stand praying, forgive, if ye have ought against any: that your Father also which is in heaven may forgive you your trespasses.
26 But if ye do not forgive, neither will your Father which is in heaven forgive your trespasses.”

Extract From Rhapsody Of Realities Daily Devotional
I’m an heir of God and a joint-heir with Christ; all things are mine. I’m in my place of divine inheritance in Christ, and it’s a large place—a place of wealth— where I lack nothing. I’m born again; therefore, I’m not ordinary. As the Father has life in Himself, even so, has He given me to have His life: life without limits. Thus, I function with supernatural strength and abilities today; nothing and no one can hurt or harm me, for my sufficiency is of God, in the Name of Jesus. Amen.
Confession For Today June 18th, 2020
The Word of God grows mightily in me, prevailing and producing health in my body. I refuse to be a victim. I continually live above sickness, disease and infirmity, for as He is, so am I in this world. I declare that I am strong and healthy. Sickness has no place in me. Glory to God!
My life is the manifestation and testimony of God’s grace and glory; His wisdom and righteousness are revealed and evident in me. I’m His light in a dark world, and I impact my world with the righteousness of God in my spirit. My actions, reactions, thoughts, words, and responses to situations and circumstances shall conform to the express will of the Father by the Word, not according to sensory perceptions. My life is regulated by the eternal realities of the Kingdom and the blessings therein are unleashed into my world. I live victoriously every day, in Jesus’ Name. Amen!
#TalkingSession 18TH JUNE. KINDLY SAY THESE WORDS OUT LOUD.
Gracious and loving heavenly Father, I thank You for the counsel in Your Word. You’ve given me a heart that loves only and granted me the capacity to express Your love that’s shed abroad in my heart by Your Spirit. I lavishly express Your love today. I’ve put on the new man, which, after God, is created in righteousness and true holiness. I am full of joy! In me, there’s no bitterness, rage, or anger. I only give vent to the love and righteousness of God, expressing His kindness, meekness, patience, and goodness. Hallelujah!
I am born of the incorruptible seed of God’s Word; therefore, I remain connected to the Word, for therein lies my health, wealth, prosperity, and progress in life. As I study and meditate on the Word, my inheritance in Christ is unveiled to me, and I walk in that reality. I am living the supernatural life naturally. I fulfil my calling and walk in Your prearranged path for my life by the power of the Holy Spirit. I am guided in wisdom to walk in Your perfect will, to walk in health, strength, victory, and prosperity, living the transcendent life in Christ, and fulfilling Your good pleasure, in Jesus’ Name. Amen.
• Keep saying it, publish it everywhere; noise it abroad! In Christ, we’ve got something to shout about. Let’s flood the airwaves, internet and print media with the reality of Christ.
