The Man of God, The Contended Man

Sunday 26th May 2019 Prayer Devotion

Scripture Reading:- 1 Timothy 6:1-21

Topic:- The Man of God, The Contended Man

Text:- 1 Kings 17:7

A discontented, murmuring Man of God cannot be a Man of Fire. He is worse than an infidel because the Bible he claims to believe in, to live by and teach people says, “Let your conversation be without covetousness, and be content with such things as ye have for He hath said, I will never leave thee nor forsake thee.” See Hebrews 13:5.
This spirit of contentment was seen in Elijah when God directed him to go and hide himself by the Brook of Cherith, that is before Jordan.

God told him to be drinking water and commanded ravens to be feeding him. Here, no shelter and nothing of convenience that he can enjoy but he was contented with the situation and directive of God. See 1 Kings 17:3-4.
It will not be an overstatement when we say that murmurers, complainers and servants of God that are not contented where God place them, are not Christians at all, they are like other sinners awaiting the judgement of God.

Prayer Points:-
1. Oh Lord my God, circumcise my heart and remove the spirit of murmuring and complaining from me, in the name of Jesus Christ.
2. Oh Lord God, give me the spirit of contentment in any situation I find myself, in the name of Jesus Christ.
3. Oh Lord my God, purify my heart by faith and Your fire, in the name of Jesus Christ.
4. Oh Lord God, give me the grace to retain You in my knowledge, so that I will be able to please You, in the name of Jesus Christ.
5. Oh Lord God, satisfy my heart with good things in every area of my life, in the name of Jesus Christ.

Happy Lord’s Day!

If you want to give your life to Christ; you want your sins forgiven; you want to become a child of God; you want to experience the realities of new birth; you want to make heaven;

Or you were once saved and fell along the line, and now you want to rededicate your life to Christ…

Then pray this short prayer of Faith

Say it loud and mean it:

“Lord Jesus, I surrender my life to you today. Forgive me my sins, wash me with your blood. I believe you died for me, on the third day you rose again that I may be justified. Right now, I believe that my sins are forgiven; I’m justified by your blood; I’m born-again; I’m saved; I’m a child of God; I’m free from the power of sin to serve the living God. Thank you Jesus for receiving me; thank you Jesus for restoring me; thank you Jesus for saving me.

Thank God for your soul. I congratulate you for the best decision of your life. For further details on how to grow in this new light, please click the CONTACT page or visit TACN or any bible believing church near you and ask for the pastor in charge.
