Proverbs 10:22 The blessing of the LORD makes one rich, And He adds no sorrow with it.
The servant of God must have enough time separated to hear from God. As the ministry grows, time will come when you have to have others around you to assist not to control you. Leaders helps to lift some of the weight from you. They make sure things are running well and prepare the church or service. A tired pastor cannot be effective. Exodus 18:17-18 So Moses’ father-in-law said to him, “The thing that you do is not good. Both you and these people who are with you will surely wear yourselves out. For this thing is too much for you; you are not able to perform it by yourself.
Depend on the Holy Spirit to show you the right people to be leaders else you’ll get people who want to run you. When you are called, there things God want to achieve and He is speaking to you not a committee. Acts 13:2 As they ministered to the Lord and fasted, the Holy Spirit said, “Now separate to Me Barnabas and Saul for the work to which I have called them.”
As you serve under the servants of God, ask for wisdom to be able to serve faithfully. Servanthood requires anointing. Servants of God are human beings, because of the close relationship with them, you’ll also know their weaknesses but the weaknesses must not change how you see them. David understood this while serving under Saul, in the mist of all challenges, he continued to respect him. 1 Samuel 24:5-6 But then David’s conscience began bothering him because he had cut Saul’s robe. He said to his men, “The LORD forbid that I should do this to my lord the king. I shouldn’t attack the LORD’s anointed one, for the LORD himself has chosen him.”
When Moses decide to marry the Ethiopian woman, Aaron and Miriam spoke against him and said things which angered God. There is our thoughts and there is the thought of God. Numbers 12:8 I speak with him face to face, Even plainly, and not in dark sayings; And he sees the form of the LORD. Why then were you not afraid To speak against My servant Moses?”
David is perhaps a perfect example of the weaknesses that the elect can have yet God continues to use them and hold them dear. 2 Samuel 11:2 Late one afternoon, after his midday rest, David got out of bed and was walking on the roof of the palace. As he looked out over the city, he noticed a woman of unusual beauty taking a bath.
Ask God to give you a disciplined mind so that your thoughts about your master are always positive. Sometimes they may deal with you in an unfair manner like Saul did to David. As you serve, it’s not everyday where it will be all smiles sometimes, there will be disagreements but always remember why you met.
When people move away from God, he allow them to go about doing as they wish but there is a consequence to us moving away from God. Society advocate for freedom to do anything and people want to be free to do anything, now so many wrong things are happening and we are surprised. Those who are in positions of influence, believe they can argue the ways of the Bible. Today things are happening, which we can’t even explain. We want to use the carnal mind to bring solution. It’s time we realize the need for a country to have a relationship with God.
Church is critical for families and children upbringing. Let’s return to God for a better world.
Titus 2:1-6 But as for you, speak the things which are proper for sound doctrine: that the older men be sober, reverent, temperate, sound in faith, in love, in patience; the older women likewise, that they be reverent in behavior, not slanderers, not given to much wine, teachers of good things- that they admonish the young women to love their husbands, to love their children, to be discreet, chaste, homemakers, good, obedient to their own husbands, that the word of God may not be blasphemed. Likewise, exhort the young men to be sober-minded,
There is something in each one of us that the devil can use. The devil could not tempt Jesus because sin does not leave in Him. The devil does not give us evil desires, he just exploit the weakness that already exist. James 1:14 But each one is tempted when he is drawn away by his own desires and enticed.
An idle mind is an undisciplined mind, a wondering mind. An idling mind become easy target to evil thoughts. Don’t let your mind wonder about thinking abound whatever it wishes. Philippians 4:8 Finally, brethren, whatever things are true, whatever things are noble, whatever things are just, whatever things are pure, whatever things are lovely, whatever things are of good report, if there is any virtue and if there is anything praiseworthy-meditate on these things.
Think about positive things.
Acts 17:26 From one man he created all the nations throughout the whole earth. He decided beforehand when they should rise and fall, and he determined their boundaries.
My mother’s womb is the perfect one to achieve what God wanted to achieve in bringing me to this earth same as yours. Psalm 139:13 You made all the delicate, inner parts of my body and knit me together in my mother’s womb. Everyone who is alive now, remember that someone bore the pain. We are breathing because of mother’s 9 months free rent and free food. There are accidental relationships but there is no accidental child. Your parents may not have planned you, but God did. He was not at all surprised by your birth, he expected it. Isaiah 44:2 Thus says the LORD who made you And formed you from the womb.
Proverbs 23:25 So give your father and mother joy! May she who gave you birth be happy.
Happy Mothers Day!
Ecclesiastes 9:12 People can never predict when hard times might come. Like fish in a net or birds in a trap, people are caught by sudden tragedy. Everything that we go through is not new, our choices distinguishes one from another. Ecclesiastes 1:9-11 History merely repeats itself. It has all been done before. Nothing under the sun is truly new. Sometimes people say, “Here is something new!” But actually it is old; nothing is ever truly new. We don’t remember what happened in the past, and in future generations, no one will remember what we are doing now.
Think positive, what you think about affect your decisions.
