JULY TESTIMONIES AND THANKSGIVING SERVICE – 29TH JULY 2018
ANCHOR SCRIPTURE(S): PSALM 5:7; 95:6-7; 103:1-5
MESSAGE TOPIC: DEDICATION AND ADORATION
By: Dr. Paul Enenche
SERVICE OBJECTIVE: Understanding the connection between dedication and adoration
Adoration (worship) is a signature quality of dedication
The deeply dedicated are deeply reverential
There is a connection between our spirituality and our ‘songology’
Dedication is the companion of adoration
Adoration is the heartbeat of devotion
Adoration is the lifewire of devotion (Ps. 150:6)
The easiest way to know a person’s dedication is to investigate their adoration
Everyone who claims to be dedicated to God and is a sturggler in praise, worship and thanksgiving is a fake
Where dedication is in place, adoration is flows
SCRIPTURAL EXAMPLES OF DEDICATION AND ADORATION:
1. Abraham (Gen. 22:5)
2. Deborah (Judg. 5:1-3)
3. Moses (Ex. 15:1; Rev. 15:3)
4. Job (Job 30:31)
5. King David (2Sam. 23:1; Ps. 119:164)
6. Our Master Jesus (John 6:11; 11:41-42; Matt. 26:30)
7. Solomon (Song. 1:1; 1 Kings 4:32)
8. The Disciples (Acts 2:47)
9. Daniel (Dan. 2:21)
10. Paul the Apostle (Eph. 5:18-20)
11. The Levites (1Chron. 16:4)
WHY DOES DEDICATION PRODUCE ADORATION?
In dedication there is submission and in submission there is adoration
2. Consecration (Ps. 29:2)
In dedication there is consecration and in consecration there is adoration
3. Affection (Acts 13:22; 1Sam. 13:14)
4. Admiration (Ps. 27:4; 84:1)
5. Appreciation (Ps. 103:1-5; 150:6; 100:4)
6. Affirmation (John 21:15-16)
THE RESULT OF DEDICATION THAT COMES FROM ADORATION:
1. Divine habitation (Ps. 22:3)
2. Supernatural manifestation (Mark 16:20; 2Chron. 5:13-14)
3. Divine Provision (Ps. 67:5-7; Luke 5:1-5)
Your worship brings His Presence and His Presence brings your supply
You can never be stranded loving the Lord
Father, we pray for Your creation in the North of Nigeria – the Fulani, Hausa, Kanuri and other tribes in the North. Help them to know You. Let there be a revival breaking out in the North that will deliver people in the North, in Jesus’ Name.
ENGAGING THE POWER OF DECLARATIONS
What we pray is great, but what we say after we have prayed is much greater, because it is what we say that God confirms into testimonies – John 11:6/40-44
According to scriptures, we shall have whatsoever we say not just what we pray – Mark. 11:23
Speaking what we want to see about the issues of our lives after we have prayed, is God’s principle for taking delivery of answers to our prayers – Psa. 56:9/Psa. 81:10-14
For example, whatever God said at creation was what God saw – Gen. 1:1-31
Whatever Moses said all through his confrontation with Pharaoh was what Moses saw – Exo. 8:1/16/ Exo. 9:1-7/ Exo. 10:1-6/12-15
Every intercession must end up with declaration before the answer can be delivered, because God will only confirm what we say and not just what we pray – Isa. 44:26/ Mark 11:23
DECLARATIONS CONCERNING THE RESCUE OF NIGERIA
The reign of terror is over in Nigeria! (Mark 11:23/ Joel 2:28/ Prov. 18:21)

The reign of wickedness is over in Nigeria!(Mark 11:23/ Joel 2:28/ Prov. 18:21)
The reign of ‘killers’ is over in Nigeria!(Mark 11:23/ Joel 2:28/ Prov. 18:21)
And whosoever will not let go must go down for us!
DECLARATIONS CONCERNING THE CHURCH OF CHRIST IN NIGERIA
The Church of Christ in Nigeria is indestructible!(Matt. 12:44/ Matt. 16:18/ Ps. 105:13-15)
The Church of Christ in Nigeria is unstoppable!(Matt. 12:44/ Matt. 16:18/ Ps. 105:13-15)
The Church of Christ in Nigeria is unmolest-able!(Matt. 12:44/ Matt. 16:18/ Ps. 105:13-15)
