Memory Verse: “And he said unto me, My grace is sufficient for thee: for my strength is made perfect in weakness. Most gladly therefore will I rather glory in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me.” 2 Corinthians 12:9

The month of August connotes many things for me. Though a unique month in its own right, it comes with mixed memories. For example this is the month when I lost my Dad, two years ago, exactly on the 26th August 2010. This is also the month when the city of Ibadan had that

And Joseph answered Pharaoh, saying, It is not in me: God shall give Pharaoh an answer of peace.” Genesis 41:15-16

Memory Verse: “I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable service. And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.” Romans 12: 1-2

This passage in the letter of Apostle Paul to the Romans is perhaps one of the high points of his letters in the Bible. In this particular passage, he enjoins Christians – believers, to live a life of sacrifice.

Memory Verse: “And ye shall know that I am in the midst of Israel, and that I am the LORD your God, and none else: and my people shall never be ashamed.” Joel 2:27

May, the month of Grace has come by again! I pray that we will all witness many more of it, if our Lord tarries, in Jesus name. The message for this month is that of reassurance. Are you going through a difficult patch right now? And all hope seems lost! You wake up in tears and go to bed with sorrow of heart and turmoil.

The story contained in the book of Genesis, chapter 41, in a nutshell forms the climax of Joseph’s life and experience in Egypt. Recall that right from the tender age of seventeen years, Joseph had demonstrated the uncanny ability to dream great dreams.
