You are welcome to the April 2024 edition of El Shaddai Heritage!

I believe the peace of God has taken over your souls, and your hope is in God alone, who can not mismanage your life.

God, in His infinite mercy, has kept you and your family from January up till now. You have every reason to give Him thanks. The God that kept you up till now will keep your standing till the end of this year.

Praise the Lord!

Our prophetic focus for the month of April 2024 is LOVE.

Our text is taken from Roman Chapter 5 Verses 5

“…the love of God is shed abroad in our hearts by the Holy Ghost which is given unto us.”

God created man in His image and after His likeness. God gave man the capacity to be like Him through the death and resurrection of our Lord Jesus Christ.

God made the grace to be like Him available to man.

…” My grace is sufficient for thee: for my strength is made perfect in weakness.”
2 Corinthians 12:9

Once you get born again, you are translated into the kingdom of light, you are endowed with the ability to love, you starts seeing people differently, you discover you can extend love to your worst enemy.

In 1 Corinthians chapter 2 verse 16, the Bible says:

“… we have the mind of Christ.”

Anger, bitterness, and malice become a thing of the past because the Bible says:

“I am in them, and you are in me.”
John 17:23

The Holy Spirit takes over your life, He leads you, He directs you. You will discover that if you obey the leading and direction of the Holy Spirit, no matter how foolish and unrealistic they sound, it will always end in your favor.
In Psalms 36 verse 9, the Bible says:

‘…in thy light shall we see light.’

In 1 John 5:19, the Bible says
…”the whole world lieth in wickedness.”

Wickedness connotes darkness.

When you are in Jesus Christ, when you walk with the Holy Spirit, the light of God will shine upon your way because God is light.
Not only that, juicy opportunities will be made available to you because the Bible says in James chapter 1 verses 17, every good and perfect gift comes from God.
Moreover, evil will be far from you, and you will not fall into the pit of life.

The Bible says in 1 Peter 4:8

“…love covers a multitude of sins.”

When you allow God to take over your heart, irrespective of the magnitude of wrong done to you, the love of God in your heart will swallow it up just like death is swallowed up in victory. Anger and bitterness will no longer be able to have a hold on you. These evil personalities will no longer be able to manifest through you because they are in darkness and you dwell in light.

When you walk in love, the kingdom of God becomes your priority.
When you walk in love with Jesus, your greatest desire will be how to get people, your neighbors, delivered from the clutches of satan, which includes salvation.
You will look for every opportunity to tell them about the love of God.

John chapter 21 verse 17 Jesus Christ asked Peter 3 times,
“Do you love me?”

When Peter replied “Yes”
Jesus Christ told him to feed His sheep.

Every believer has a duty and a responsibility to disseminate the love of God.
When you love your neighbor with the love of Jesus Christ, which is unconditional, you are revealing the nature of God to them, thereby endearing them to God.

“Whosoever hateth his brother is a murderer: and ye know that no murderer hath eternal life abiding in him.

Hereby perceive we the love of God, because he laid down his life for us: and we ought to lay down our lives for the brethren.

But whoso hath this world’s good, and seeth his brother have need, and shutteth up his bowels of compassion from him, how dwelleth the love of God in him?”
1 John 3:15-17

If you truly and genuiely have the love of God in you, no price will be too high to pay to win your brothers and sisters, including your neighbors, to Jesus. Unforgiveness will not be named with you.

You will be compelled to share the little you have with your brothers and sisters, knowing that God is your provider and that you will not lack any good thing. Psalms 37:25

I pray that the grace to keep walking in love will come upon you today in the name of Jesus.
