I sense God working in a different way this season. If you take what He has blessed you with for granted, you will be replaced like Vashti was replaced by Esther in the book of Esther in the bible. A lot of us take things for granted (including yours truly; me, myself and I ).
Two things happened yesterday to confirm this; A job in my house to be done by the usual workman was done by another, and in comparison, the new person's work was praised, immediately, I heard a voice within me saying the Esthers are taking over from the Vashtis..let's pray that our position will not be taken over by another, be it in marriage, ministry, and business.

We must take heed and be found faithful in all we do, to further confirm my early morning thoughts, a few hours later, a brother shared how he went for a meeting and became a member of a state committee, what came to my heart was diligence, dedication , consistency and commitment. We must all learn that faithfulness pays, even Jesus Christ asked the question on faithfulness, that when He comes back, will He find faithfulness on earth? So my question is; have you been faithful in that which God has called you to do? Are you committed to making sure things assigned to you are seen to a conclusive end? Are you committed to your relationship? Are you faithful in your marriage? Are you committed and faithful to the work God has assigned you? Are you committed to seeing that those God has brought your way to help, you truly help them? Let's all sit down and check ourselves, i am doing my appraisal and I know I have a long way to go....God help us all.

Prayer points;
1. Pray that you will not take God's grace and gifts in your life for granted.
2. Pray that God will help you to be faithful till the end in that which He has assigned for you to do.
3. Pray that God will help you to turn your weaknesses to strength and cover those weaknesses, so they will not truncate your glorious destiny.
4. Pray that you will not be divinely displaced and replaced.
5. Pray that any position that rightfully belongs to you that someone is occupying now, that God will unseat them and put you there.
6. Pray that all your benefits the enemy had withheld from you despite your faithfulness be returned fully in Jesus name amen.

Scriptures to read- Matthew 25:14-30, Luke 18:1-8, Ezekiel 21:27, the book of Esther , Psalm 75:6-7, 1 Kings 2:15. I await our testimonies.



No man or demon will replace me, in Jesus' name, amen. I say amen to all the prayers. Bishop Dr. Israel Ikpeka. President, MARRIAGE & LOVE MINISTRY
