MICHAEL FARADAY ( continued).
He was thirteen years of age when he took a job as a newspaper and book delivery boy…
As he tramped the cobbled streets of early nineteenth century London clad in his elder brother’s shabby overcoat, he decided to get work as a stationer and bookbinder…
His inquisitive mind would explore the scores of books which passed across his binder’s table. Fascinated, he ploughed through Isaac Watts’ book “On the Mind”, and began to hunger after a better education.
He absorbed complete sections of the ” Encyclopaedia Britannica” while rebinding a worn E-F volume, returning again and again to the article on electricity
In his spare time at home he tried to immitate experiments described in the article, and began to track down every popular book or magazine he heard of which contained anything about this fascinating new science…. (to be continued).

The day you got born again and became a child of God, and a member of God’s family, your health account was activated. It was Jesus that paid the price for it, and made that deposit into your account in heaven. Continue reading DRAWING FROM YOUR HEALTH ACCOUNT
TEXT: Matthew 26:53
“Or do you think that I cannot now pray to my Father, and he will provide me with more than twelve legions of angels? ”
Hmmmm! If Jesus can pray, you better “can pray” too! Stop looking for who to pray for you; or consoling yourself that somebody somewhere must be praying for you.
Tell yourself, “If Jesus can pray, I can pray too! ” Yes; because that same Jesus is now in you )in the person of the Holy Spirit), supplying you the ability to pray and have results.Those who can pray will always enjoy divine interventions, any day, anytime, anywhere!

YOU NEED FINANCIAL POWER!
Text: 1Chronicles 22:5-14; Psalm 105:37
“… may you prosper and build…”
Lack of money makes a man so “feeble”and impotent to perform his duties towards his family. In fact, it makes a man lose respect before his wife and children! Whether we would like to admit it or not, lack of money is the cause of most of the problems in marriages.
No man can build anything “exceedingly magnificent, famous and glorious without prosperity (not just monthly salary or money that trickles in from here and there).
On the wedding day, a man receives a responsibility to build a great family for God that he(God) can use to accomplish a definite part of his agenda for the earth. This, I tell you,requires great prosperity – Zechariah 1:17. Continue reading FAMILY AND FINANCE
“What is in this man’s words that even demons obey him? ” – Luke 4:36 (TLB).
It’s not enough to speak, there must be power in your words! The Christian life is a speaking life. That is, a life that demands that you keep speaking (Joshua 1:8). It’s the only way to fill your life with good things (Matthew 12:35). Continue reading WORD FOR THE WEEK | SPEAKING WORDS OF POWER

HIS BIOGRAPHY – Part 1
“Michael FARADAY, extraordinary scientific genius as he became, had a very humble start in life… He grew up in an overcrowded home… receiving the slenderest education, and spending most of his early boyhood playing in the street. .. the family lived on Poor Relief…
Young FARADAY never missed a Sunday in St Paul’s Alley… where a small congregation of Christians held firmly to the Bible as the infallible Word of God.
Here FARADAY learnt from the lips of preachers a faith which shaped his life and became for him the most important message in the world… “

– Culled from “MEN OF PURPOSE ” by Peter Masters
Children (both male and female) are born into a family, trained and empowered to make that family greater, more prosperous and comfortable than their parents ever did – totally taking the family to a new level!
So, when you go take a daughter from a family as wife, it’s supposed to be a gain not a loss to that family. So don’t become a stranger or start acting like one after you have taken their daughter with you! Don’t turn your back on that family! So that they’re not plagued by a sense of loss. No! Be more of a son that God has added to that family, than one who has come to take their daughter (and in most cases their bread-winner) away. Don’t let that family become so impoverished and neglected because their daughter got married. No! Continue reading WISDOM FOR SINGLE/MARRIED MEN – DON’T BE A STRANGER!
