TOPIC- THE COROLLA: ICHABOD SHALL NOT BE MY NAME!
Toyota Motor Corporation introduced the Corolla brand in November 1966. Since 1974, the Corolla has been adjudged one of the best selling cars in the world. Acknowledged generally as one of the most fuel efficient cars in the world, its manufacturers have strived over the years to make it a household name in many countries of the world.
Beyond fuel efficiency, analysts say that it has many other things going for it which include its lightweight engine which harnesses advanced technology to deliver better performance, as well as an interior that segs to be admired. About 5 years ago, the Corolla sale hit the 40million mark. Then, the Vice President (Marketing) of Toyota, Jack Hollis, made a statement in which he said that the love affair of the Americans and the entire world with the Corolla began in 1968. He then stated that “the passion is still burning.” Having sold some 40 million and more pieces, he considers the company as one that is just getting started with a BURNING PASSION from Corolla lovers.
BASIC SCRIPTURES: REVELATION 3: 14-19; PSALM 42:1-4
Can you beat that? The Holy Ghost wants you to take a (closer look at the passion you have for the things God has I committed into your hands and those things in which you are involved. PASSION they say, is more than just enthusiasm or excitement. It is considered as a compelling desire for someone or something! It is an ambition that is materialized into action that involves man’s tripartite nature (spirit, soul and body). PASSION INVOLVES TRUE LOVE FOR ANYTHING! ZigZiglarputs it this way: “When you catch a glimpse of your potential, that’s when passion is born.” When you know that your STORY TO GLORY testimony can be BLOCKED when your PASSION dies, then you will hate to sit ON THE FENCE in all you do this year! Hear George Hegel: “Nothing great in the world has ever been accomplished without passion.
” Today’s scripture speaks glowingly of David’s PASSION for God. He said, “As the hart panteth after the water brooks, so panteth my soul after Thee, O God” (Psalm 42:1). Do you still have the passion/zeal you had for God when you first met Christ or you are now LUKEWARM? What of your PASSION for your marriage, ministry, service to God, academic and business pursuits? If your PASSION has been CAPTURED and taken away, then your new name is ICHABOD -departed glory (1 Sam 4: 21)! Reject this! Nobody called ICHABOD will make heaven because the LORD will SPIT you out of His mouth! No ICHABOD businessman, pastor or spouse will testify this year! Use today’s word for a NEW FIRE/PASSION for evangelism, soul winning, prayer, fasting, family life and business commitment, etc. ICHABOD shall not be your name! Ah!

Today’s Devotional Hymn My Faith Looks Up to Thee
1 My faith looks up to Thee,
Thou Lamb of Calvary,
Now hear me while I pray,
take all my guilt away;
O let me from this day
be wholly Thine.
2 May Thy rich grace impart
strength to my fainting heart,
my zeal inspire;
as Thou hast died for me,
O may my love to Thee
pure, warm, and changeless be,
a living fire.
3 While life’s dark maze I tread,
and griefs around me spread,
be Thou my guide;
bid darkness turn to day,
wipe sorrow’s tears away,
nor let me ever stray
from Thee aside.
4 When ends life’s transient dream,
when death’s cold, sullen stream
shall o’er me roll,
blest Savior, then in love,
fear and distrust remove;
O bear me safe above,
a ransomed soul.
