12 “The hearing ear and the seeing eye, the Lord has made them both.“
Today’s Inspiration: The hearing ear and the seeing eye, the Lord has made them both. Proverbs 20:12. What are you hearing this season? Are you in a dry land? God can turn wilderness into pools of water and dry land into water springs. Psalm 107:35. His word promised whatever you sow in the fields and plant vineyards, you may yield a fruitful harvest and He will multiply your flocks greatly. V37-38. Whatever you believe or see in the spirit, you receive! Never look at circumstances when you read a promise from God. Speak the verses to your spirit. Many of us tend to focus on the external rather than the eternal spirit, thus causing pain in their lives.
External discomfort of eating healthy food and exercises far exceeds eating the desires of our heart that causes pain in us. There is also a tendency to focus on exercises and eating healthily only so as to have health but many avoid the internal disciplines that might lead us to much afflictions. We ought to focus on the right thing that God wills in our life. God is the only one who knows our true need in order to fulfill His purpose and our hope. Matthew 6:8. Sometimes He supplies what we thought we don’t need but eventually when the time comes, it brings forth an Awakening to our spirit that set us free.
For instance when I was young in the Lord, like many others, I long for a word that relates to my calling only to be frustrated with a word that God has anointed me with boldness. Another prophet gave me a word that God had anointed me with influence and on another occasion He said God has anointed me with continuous influence. I never appreciated that word at that time of release, but overtime I realised how fruitful those words were to the ministry He called me to. Up to today it had brought effectiveness to my ministry. This is why Apostle Paul says that we should not despise the prophecies given. 1 Thessalonians 5:20.
Our God is such an amazing God. We can never fathom His heart and love for us which is beyond measure. Romans 8:38-39. He loved us so much that He promised us that we are more than conquerors through Christ. Romans 8:38-39. There are so much promises we can apply to our life and ministry. We are all responsible for allowing our character to be moulded and cleansed to reach a destination of humility and humbleness before God that will bring us to oneness with Him and our brethren that attracts blessings. Psalm 133:1-3. John 17:21-22 Jesus pray for all believers that we may all be in one with Jesus just as He was one with the Father. It’s through humility that we can achieve oneness.
Humility reminds us that we are in great need of our Father. When things go well, it is easy to forget God as our provider, sustainer and authority and there is a tendency to ascribe success to out natural abilities, our talents and our good fortune. Why do we face pain and calamities suddenly? It’s God’s way of driving self sufficiency from us which is a form of pride to sin. God has to humble the Israelites many times to knock the self righteousness which is a form of pride out of them and to show them that man does not live by bread alone but by every word that proceeds from the mouth of God. Deuteronomy 8:2-3. Jesus reinforced this truth when He confronted Satan’s temptation. Matthew 4:4.
Year 2020 is a year where you have to watch what you say and pride of the heart. So exercise caution. The more you get closer to God the further will be deception. My prayer for you this year is to have all your promises fulfilled as you obeyed every commandment of the Lord in full submission to Him. Pride is the path to sin. So check your heart in order to reap the harvest which is now ripe. God be praised!
