THE RIGHT WAY

For precept must be upon precept, precept upon precept; line upon line, line upon line; here a little, and there a little; Isaiah 28:10. When it came to the ark, King David had spent some time in doing it the wrong way. He needed to know the right way and do it accordingly. So this time he took every precaution to ensure that this second attempt to bring the ark of convenant to Jerusalem did not end in another disaster. No doubt much soul-searching and proper research preceded his next effort, but one thing is certain- he was determined not to rely on any unsanctioned and unreliable methods to get the job done at this time. David was not overly impatient to proceed after experiencing and learning the hard way. He waited three months to get the right way and before making any attempt. Great blessings had come to the live of Obed-Edom and his house as a result of the Ark of convenant that had been left there, it was only after hearing this good news that David overcame his fear of dealing with the ark. This time, the ark was successfully brought to Jerusalem in parade form amid…

LIFE TRANSFORMING INSTRUCTIONS

You must understand with absolute clarity that it is your responsibility to make your life count. It is totally wrong for you to wait for someone to make it count for you apart from God. Knowing your true value is very crucial, it affects how you make your life count.  This is because longevity is not equal to productivity, age must not consume us rather you must be consumed by the passion for significance.

THE DOER OF THE WORD – Reasoning Factor

Whenever God speaks to us and we refuse to do it, you will notice that reasoning with your head has gotten in the way and you have been deceived in trusting in something else other than the truth (God’s word). But be doers of the word [obey the message], and merely listeners to it, betraying yourselves [into deception by reasoning contrary to the Truth]. James 1:22 (AMP) The major problem is trying to understand what God has said using the human mind or mentally. We cannot spend excessive time trying to understand everything the word says, if we bear witness in the spirit, we can move ahead and do it. Infact, God wants you to obey his word whether or not you feel like it, he wants you to understand his plan for you whether it goes with our taste. …… When God speaks, we are to take deliberate action not explain it away… Lean on, trust in, and be confident in the Lord with all your heart and mind and do not rely on your own insight or understanding. Proverbs 3:5 (AMP) This means never rely on reasoning with your mind. Reasoning opens the door for deception and brings…

FILLING THE GAP

And I sought for a man among them, that should make up the hedge, and stand in the gap before me for the land, that I should not destroy it: but I found none. Ezekiel 22:30 (KJV) Have you ever been in an examination where the examiner ask you to fill in a missing letter or word in a particular word or sentence? It seems as if there are many answer to such question and you begin to search for the most correct one to fill into the gap. The same applies to when God our creator, he that knows all things begins to search for a definite person to stand in the gap for our generation so that he will not destroy or punish us for our sins just like what happened during the days of Abraham and Sodom and Gomorrah. The sins of that land came up to God and indeed it was disgusting and un-beholding and God had sent his angels to go to destroy the city but because God is Abraham’s friend he let him know into his plan to destroy the Sodom and Gomorrah but Abraham cousin Lot was there with his family and he…
