What God Abhors [2

Thursday 28th March 2019 Prayer Devotion

Scripture Reading:- Acts 13:1-11

Topic:- What God Abhors [2]

Text:- Acts 13:2

By Gbile Akanni:
Are there seeds of sin already growing in your heart which may not have opportunity of outward expression today, until an opportune time in the future?
Is there a kind of secret ambition; perhaps an ambition for fame in your life that has made it difficult for God to trust you with a big work? If God knows that you cannot handle fame; and that if you have a little opportunity to become popular you will become pompous, then God may likely say, “Let’s peg his progress.” Only God knows how many of His servants whose progress He has had to peg because of what He saw in their hearts.
Will you wish to check where you are with God now? A few sobering questions will help you to check the state of your heart and your stand with God . . .

Is it taking several years for God to give you a breakthrough and to enlarge your life? Is there some secret ambition that God is querying in your heart, even though covered with zeal? Does God see the seed of pride and arrogance, which might spring up if He should fertilize you with Anointing?
This is not the time to pray about other people. The people in Church are not the problem. If God gets a correct man in you to lavish His power on, the Church will change overnight. It is time to focus on your own life first.
I take the liberty to challenge you here as a man that can become great in the hand of God. I challenge you not because of your height in God today but because of what I foresee God can work in your life before you leave the scene.

God may have begun with you on probation, teaching a Sunday School class. But such beginnings are usually for training and exposure. There are greater tasks ahead of your life. There is a large estate into which He would want to call you if you are faithful.
But one thing that scares God away from a man is his wrong heart. Is your heart pure? Have you gotten rid of every seed of sin in your heart?
And because there is a spiritual genetic connection between a Minister and the people he reproduces, it becomes very necessary to be sure that there is no wrong thing in the life that trains others. Since what a man is, is what he will impart, whatever we do not want to multiply must not be given prominence in the Church. That is why God is not quick at picking men for His use.

Why not ask God to test every ‘gene’ of your life and throw out that which is injurious? Why not pray this hour and say, “Dear Holy Spirit, if leadership imposes such a serious demand on the life of those to be so appointed, do not delay in getting to work upon my life. No wonder You are not getting men so quickly to use today”.
Do not forget, my brother, that the back-up you need is not what a man can do for you. It is what only God can do. Everything God wants you to do, depend on if He is ready to place His approval on your life.
Do not forget that serving God is not a matter of competition with any man. I wish you could face God with the reality of your life situation. I wish you would ask God some serious questions today . . .
“God, are You still afraid of releasing Your power into my life? Are You still afraid of releasing Your Church into my hand? Why are You pegging my progress? God why are You afraid of lavishing upon me what I could have used to change my generation? LORD, are there still wrong things within my life that You are scared of?”

Prayer Points:-
1. God! Are You still afraid of releasing Your power into my life? I’m available for Your uses oh Lord God henceforth, in the name of Jesus Christ.
2. Oh Lord God! Test every ‘gene’ of my life and throw out that which is injurious now by fire, in the name of Jesus Christ.
3. Dear Holy Spirit! If leadership imposes such a serious demand on the life of those to be so appointed, do not delay in getting to work upon my life henceforth by fire, in the name of Jesus Christ.

Have A Lovely Thursday!

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.
