The Founder of Abel Damina Ministry, Pastor Abel Damina in a video on YouTube, named some rituals believers should not be running after. We learnt from to the Pastor in the video that Jesus Christ came to fulfill the Law through His death, burial and resurrection thereby setting man free from the Law.
The fear of sin has stopped so many from becoming successful in life. Some people think that sin can stop their success and progress in life. That depends on you and what you believe in and as a Christian you shouldn't be thinking this way. This is not the way of God rather it's the mindset of the devil working in you.
The Bible says that Jesus as the Word and God has been in existence even before the world began. All things were made through Him, and apart from Him, everything that has been created was created through Him. Also, it is interesting to know, according to Colossians 1:18, that Jesus is not only the Head of the body(the Church), who is the beginning, the firstborn from among the dead, but that He, in ALL THINGS has the preeminence and great authority because all power in heaven and on earth has been given to Him.
One of the most important instructions which God has given to his children in the Holy Bible is that they should let the word of Christ dwell in them richly in all wisdom, and this is because Christ is the wisdom of God (1Corinthians 1:24) and according to Proverbs 4:7, wisdom is the principal thing and one should get it with understanding, and Ephesians 3:17 reveals that one should let Christ dwell in one's heart by faith.
One of the most important things God wants his children to make the best use of is "Time", and this is because every purpose in life has a time allocated for it (Ecclesiastes 3:1), and according to Colossians 4:5, time should be redeemed because the days are evil, and children of God needs to walk wisely and carefully to achieve it.
Knowledge means what is learned, understood or aware of which may be facts, information, and skills acquired through experience or education, and according to Proverbs 2:6, knowledge comes from the mouth of God, and Colossians 2:3 reveals that in him (Christ) is hidden all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge.
There are some Bible verses you should read before you sleep at night, and this is because God has commanded that you read and meditate in his law in the day and also at night, and according to Colossians 3:16, the word of Christ should dwell richly in you in all wisdom, and since John 6:63 and Proverbs 18:21 reveals that the word of Christ is spirit and life and that death and life are in the power of the tongue, you must read and declare some Bible verses before you sleep at night to address and take charge of the night, and this is what I want to share with you in this article.
In the book of Colossians 3: 21, there was a strange, and clear instruction Paul the Apostle gave to fathers. According to the bible verse, Fathers are told not to provoke their children. This might sound a bit odd to most fathers out there as it probably seems practically impossible to not provoke a child.
Colossians 3:23 Whatever you do, work heartily, as for the Lord and not for men. Proverbs 13:4 The soul of the sluggard craves and gets nothing, while the soul of the diligent is richly supplied. Proverbs 14:23 In all toil there is profit, but mere talk tends only to poverty.
One of the most valuable resources created by God and given to man is time, and this is because every purpose has a time given to it (Ecclesiastes 3:1), but there are wicked people whose sole aim is to trap and destroy their victims by searching for an appropriate time to carry out their evil works against them (Ecclesiastes 9:12), and it's because of them that God has provided a way out to redeem the time, and I will be sharing it with you on what the Bible says you should do if you want to redeem the time in other to escape the scheme of evil people.
It very important to note that Jesus has indeed completed the work of salvation for everyone on the cross of Calvary. There is no need for any sacrifices to be offered for sins as the Bible has said in Hebrews 10:18 and 26. Yet, the Bible says in Colossians 1:24 that Paul, the apostle to the gentiles, was completing in his flesh what was lacking in Christ's affliction for His body, that is the Church.
Generational curses are real but more real is the power of God at work in us. Generational curses places limitations on one’s destiny and it has the power to cause delay, afflictions and disappointments. But what you permit has the power to remain, you must break out of your shell and pray your away out of destiny stagnation.
As you start this new week, remember: you don't have to sink down to somebody's level and argue with them and try to prove that you are right. You weren’t put on this earth to correct everybody around you. Instead of letting disagreements pull your relationships apart, look for common ground to draw you closer to the people in your life, look for peace.

We all pray to receive answers when we pray not just for praying sake. We pray so we can move forward in life,be blessed, know God more,ask for forgiveness, provision and so on. But as we have some criteria that don't allow God to answer our prayer,we also have ways to pray to make sure our prayers are answered.

Psalms 34:10 "The young lions do lack, and suffer hunger: but they that seek the LORD shall not want any good thing." Lack, begging, debt and shame shall never be traced to you in Jesus name. Helpers will not reject you. Your light will shine even in the midst of darkness, people you don't know will rise up to your defense in Jesus name.
1) Matthew 26:41 Watch and pray, that ye enter not into temptation: the spirit indeed is willing, but the flesh is weak. 2) Colossians 4:2 Continue in prayer, and watch in the same with Thanksgiving. 3) Hosea 11:7 And my people are bent to backsliding from me: though they called them to the most high, none at all would exalt him.
