UNFRIENDLY FRIEND

MONDAY 16TH JULY 2018 MORNING PRAYER DEVOTION

SCRIPTURE READING:- PSALM 55

TOPIC:- UNFRIENDLY FRIEND

TEXT:- 2 SAMUEL 15:31

Somebody once said, “trust is like a sticker, once it is removed, it may stick again, but not as strong as it holds when you first applied.”

The way of life of the white people shows that they are born easily to trust people, while the opposite is the case with the blacks. We are so deceitful to the extent that even our nation is full of corruption. Funny enough, the Churches are not exempted. It is so sad to mention that Pastors don’t trust each other, and the order of the day, which is the worst case, is that members don’t have genuine love for each other.
Today, we are focusing on the lives of David and Ahithophel. Ahithophel had been a member of David’s cabinet as well as his chief counselor. Perhaps Ahithophel turned against David because of the events surrounding the death of Uriah the Hittite, the husband of Bathsheba. This would seem logical since Ahithophel was Bathsheba’s grandfather. See 2 Samuel 11:3; 23:34.

Soonest, the trust of Ahithophel for David ended, when an opportunity came for him to ally with Absalom the son of David, who had overthrown his father from the throne. See 2 Samuel 15:1-12.
You will believe with me that the trust between the two died immediately because when David heard of the conspiracy against him, that Ahithophel, his best adviser was among. David was not angry with his son Absalom, who was planning to terminate his life and even overthrow him, but was wondering how his best counselor, Ahithophel, whom he trusted, could have joined forces with his son. See 2 Samuel 15:30-37. Note also Psalms 55:12-17.
The only one to trust, who will never disappoint you and also give you fire to carry is Jesus. He cares for you. See Matthew 11:28-30; 1 Peter 5:7.

Prayer Points:-
1. I command all those unfriendly friends of mine, be exposed and be disgraced now by fire, in the name of Jesus Christ.
2. I command every counsel of Ahithophel against my success, come to foolishness, in the name of Jesus Christ.
3. Oh Lord my God! Send unto me, helper of destiny and change me completely now by fire, in the name of Jesus Christ.

Have A Beautiful Monday!

ALTAR CALL

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.
