SCRIPTURE: But be ye doers of the word
,”and not hearers only, deceiving your own selves. For if any be a hearer of the word, and not a doer, he is like unto a man beholding his natural face in a glass”: James 1:22-23
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: We cannot use worldly principles to achieve Kingdom products. We cannot serve God by the terms and standards of the world and expect things to work.
We live in a world where people negotiate Divine instructions and do not take the Word of God seriously. When unbelievers go to native or witch doctors and are given prescriptions or recommendations of what to do,”they would stick to and follow the prescriptions of the native or witch doctors to the letter.
But in church, the opposite is the case”: instead following God’s instructions through the pastor He has set over us,”we slack most times and try to negotiate the Word of God. We try to use worldly principles to achieve Kingdom products. No! It cannot work that way. We cannot use worldly principles to achieve Kingdom products. We cannot serve God by the terms and standards of the world and expects things to work.
When we serve God by the terms and standards of the people of the world and things do not work out, we begin to complain saying, “I have been coming to church for many years, yet, my prayers are not answered and I have not succeeded, but the unbelievers in my office are prospering. Things are not working for me despite coming to church.” The question to ask is”: whatever the devil tells the unbeliever to do,”he is doing them and appears to be prospering; are you doing what your God tells you to do through your pastor? The unbeliever has decided to go to hell and so, would do anything he is told by the witch doctor to do in order to appear successful in life, but you, beloved Christian, you disobey simple Divine principles of success outlined by God in the scripture and you expect to succeed like the unbeliever who rigidly obeys the evil principles of the devil prescribed by the witch doctor? It cannot work that way!
Beloved, do not follow the examples of the world. Make up your mind not to use the principles of the world to get the products of the Kingdom. Rather, follow the principles of the Kingdom in order to get the products of the Kingdom of God.
Remember this”: We cannot use worldly principles to achieve kingdom products. We cannot serve God by the terms and standards of the world and expects things to work.
1. Treasure the Word of God above every other thing in life.
2. Make up your mind to obey every detail of Divine instruction in order to see Divine results.
PRAYER: Lord,”I receive the grace to receive and obey Your Word. Deliver me from the temptation of negotiating Your Divine instructions, Lord, in Jesus’ Name.
