WORKING OUT AN ALTERNATIVE

In this uncommon race that we have enlisted in, if you rest prematurely, or take your eyes off the daystar we are following, you will be distracted. Another thing that can divert your attention is opening your mouth prematurely to reveal your secret to ‘sympathetic friends’. Never share a testimony until it is complete. Sometimes people have shared how years after a fruitless search for a job, they have eventually been called for an interview and that they are now awaiting their letter of appointment. When the enemy hears this, he or she may begin to manipulate situations, circumstances and those capable of influencing decisions. Such people may lose out in shame eventually.

Moreover, if you are truly determined to make it to Heaven, even though you have diverted at some point, you can be restored by the mercies of God. After Abraham, had waited for many years, for God’s promise to be fulfilled, his wife came with a diversion: she asked them to help God by offering him her slave. From the time Abraham diverted to the bondwoman, God into silence for about 13 years. But being a merciful God, after that period, God restored him again and from that moment, Abraham and God walked together in sweet harmony. The Lord who restored Abraham will restore you in any area you have diverted from His plan and purpose. Some people are becoming weary over the delay in the fulfillment of a particular promise. As a result, some are dabbling into sin and trying out other alternatives. A head usher of several years standing could no longer bear his wife’s inability to have a child, so he packed up the marriage and went for divorce. Thereafter, he took another lady as wife and moved to another Gospel church. Years after, the second lady could also not have a baby. Would he divorce her too and go for a third? Beloved, when you go for an alternative, it shows you do not really trust in God. Believers who say they are heading for Heaven are now complicating their lives by getting themselves diverted out of impatience. Stay firm in God and He will sort you out.

Memorise:
“He staggered not at the promise of God through unbelief; but was strong in faith, giving glory to God;”
Romans 4:20

Read:
Genesis 16:1-4

Bible in one year:
Genesis 23-26

Action point:
Thank God for seeing the end of this year. Pray that God will safely bring you into 2014 with grace and power.

BAD SOIL

For your request to be granted, you have to apply relevant keys. Many people desire financial breakthrough but are not prepared to apply the right key; unsurprisingly the door just won’t open. 2 Corinthians 9:6 says you must sow bountifully and if you don’t sow, do not expect a harvest. Do you know some...More

GOD OF PURPOSE

Our God is a God of purpose. He created man for a purpose. He declared His purpose for man even before creating him in His own image. The Bible in Genesis 1:26 says,
“And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl...More

If you are willing, you can make me clean (1)

And there came a leper to him, beseeching him, and kneeling down to him, and saying unto him, If thou wilt, thou canst make me clean. And Jesus, moved with compassion, put forth his hand, and touched him, and saith unto him, I will; be thou clean. And as soon as he had spoken, immediately the leprosy...More
