10 “Say to the righteous that it shall be well with them, for they shall eat the fruit of their doings.
11 Woe to the wicked! It shall be ill with him, for the reward of his hands shall be given him.
Today’s Inspiration: Isaiah 3:10 Say to the righteous that it shall be well with them for they shall eat the fruit of their doings. The question we should ask ourselves this morning is what have we been doing to our life and others? This scripture verse spells it out so clearly. Are we aligning ourselves to God? Do we know God’s heart so intimately that His voice of counselling or warnings are so clear in the ears of our heart? If so then He will dwell with us. Jeremiah 7:3, which means daily devotions is not an option.
As servants of the Most High God, He is our Master. Servants must spend time with their masters to know their masters’ will. When we spend daily devotional time with God, we submit our will to His. It is at this time that we surrender every detail of our life to God.
Through spending time with God, we gain wisdom and understanding. When we know the truth and apply the truth to our life we acquire wisdom. How much we value God depends on the time we spend with Him. Time allocated to Him shows how much He is worthy of our attention and praise. Coming to Him each day is one way to know which direction to move.
We should not allow your regrets to linger for too long but to fully face the feelings of regret and motivate yourselves towards a change. We need to look at the options and take control over the future and advance to where God has called us to do. When He calls, He provides you to weather the storms and drought and bring you to the next destination He has planned for you. Do not look at your neighbour whom you think the grass is greener. It might not fit you because that was not what you have been designed for.
We should exercise the discipline of telling the Lord that we have not departed from the commandment of His lips and that we have treasured the words of His mouth more than necessary food. These are words our Father seeks. Job 23:12.
Your pruning may result in yourself finding difficulty to do your devotions but it is at this time you needed a timely word. So devotions is not an option but a command that Joshua receives in Joshua 1:8-9. After the testing, you will see yourself coming forth as gold. Job 23:10. If you do not emerge as gold with clear direction to move after the pruning, then i would say your communion is far from intimate or you have not sought Him enough. He performs what is appointed for you and all spiritual directions are with Him. Verse 14. We have to first watch our walk with Him before we can perform His service effectively. It is not the work we should be concerned about but the walk with Him at this moment.
Lay down your excess baggage before you are fractured. Our ministry should be more people-oriented than program-oriented. This is where you see spiritual growth in your people.
