We bow before Your Throne and we worship You O! Lord. Thank You for preserving us Lord. Thank You for ever and ever.
Beloved, praise the Lord, at last the long awaited week is here with us. The high ways are busy and the all shops are overcrowded with buyers. Wow! Is gonna be a wonderful time all over the world, getting super ready for the arrival of “babe Jesus” into our world. Someone is excited, praise the Lord!
I ask this question to you “is that the reason for the season?” Let me leave it at that for now, we will still come back to it at the due time.
We have few weeks to the end of the year. Our topic today is posing a question to us. Have you giving an answer to it or you are still thinking over it? As the year is gradually coming to an end, with so many prayer point marshalled out at the beginning of the year, some fulfilled and some yet to come to past, the Spirit of God is asking you this day, “have you done what you know to do?” someone is asking Evangelist, are not taking it out of context. Not at all, am not taking it out of context but rather I want to find out from you how faithful you have been in what your hand had findeth to do?
Have you done what you know to do? Is very important we examine our work or put in another way, conduct audit checks on our conducts or modus operands and be sure we have done or doing all we know to do and then you will see God working out the remaining part He knows how best to complete.
But first, God must see your obedience to all He has commanded you to do, not your murmuring, your rationalization or procrastination.
Beloved, sometime we run into losses in cost of doing what we are supposed to do or what God instructed you to do. Do I have such a person in the house this morning, I will encourage you to read on and discover what was said concerning such a period as such.
Our God is still in the business of doing good, yours will not be an exception. It must come to past according to His promises to us. The Lord Who made you for a purpose will not abandon you until He fulfill all that concerneth you.
So, for the person who knows to do good and doesn’t do it, it is a sin.—James 4:17
It is never a minor thing to know God’s will and not do it. God calls this sin. We can make excuses for our lack of obedience: “I’m just not ready yet” or “I’ll do it later!” or “I don’t think it will make a difference” or “I can’t afford to!” We rationalize, we procrastinatate; yet, in God’s eyes, rationalization and procrastination are nothing more than disobedience.
At times we deceive ourselves into thinking that good intentions equal obedient actions. They do not. A good intention without corresponding activity is disobedience. When we encounter God and He gives us a direction, it is not enough to write down the date in our spiritual journal, or even to tell our friends and church of our “decision.”
God’s call is not to “make a decision” but to obey! Deciding to obey is not equal to obeying! (Matt. 21:28–31). Loudly affirming the necessity of obedience is not the same as obeying (Luke 6:46). Making commitments, even publicly, is not the same as obeying our Lord. Substituting our own good works is not the same as obeying.
God told King Saul to wait until the prophet Samuel arrived. Instead of waiting, Saul took matters into his own hands and offered a sacrifice. Saul discovered, to his deep dismay, that other acts of supposed piety do not take the place of obeying a clear command from God (1 Sam. 15:22). As with Saul, God expects you to obey everything exactly as He tells you. Only obedience satisfies God’s desire for obedience!
Beloved, what have God committed into your hand that you are dragging your feet to fulfill? What has He instructed you to do and you are thinking is too lowly for you? I want you to know that the vision you are expecting depend so much on the fulfillment of the one revealed to you.
So get going, the year is not over yet, is not time to retreat. The “God of suddenly” will yet visit you. Position yourself; be at alert. Every area you deserve victory must fully be delivered before this year is over.
“And Amaziah said to the man of God, But what shall we do for the hundred talents which I have given to the army of Israel? And the man of God answered, The Lord is able to give thee much more than this.” 2Chronicles 25:9
A very important question this seemed to be to the king of Judah, and possibly it is of even more weight with the tried and tempted O Christian. To lose money is at no times pleasant, and when principle involves it, the flesh is not always ready to make the sacrifice. “Why lose that which may be so usefully employed? May not the truth itself be bought too dear? What shall we do without it?
Remember the children, and our small income!” All these things and a thousand more would tempt the Christian to put forth his hand to unrighteous gain, or stay himself from carrying out his conscientious convictions, when they involve serious loss. All men cannot view these matters in the light of faith; and even with the followers of Jesus, the doctrine of “we must live” has quite sufficient weight.
The Lord is able to give thee much more than this is a very satisfactory answer to the anxious question. Our Father holds the purse-strings, and what we lose for His sake He can repay a thousand-fold. It is ours to obey His will, and we may rest assured that He will provide for us. The Lord will be no man’s debtor at the last. Saints know that a grain of heart’s-ease is of more value than a ton of gold. He who wraps a threadbare coat about a good conscience has gained a spiritual wealth far more desirable than any he has lost.
God’s smile and a dungeon are enough for a true heart; His frown and a palace would be hell to a gracious spirit. Let the worst come to the worst, let all the talents go, we have not lost our treasure, for that is above, where Christ sitteth at the right hand of God.
Meanwhile, even now, the Lord maketh the meek to inherit the earth, and no good thing doth He withhold from them that walk uprightly.
Did you read that no good thing will He withdraw from them that walketh uprightly. Are you glad about it this promises? Are you tapping into this promise? The Lord will perfect all that concerns you. be alive for Jesus, rise to every good work especially at this season of great tidying. Great news will come your way before the end of this year. So watch out; be alert!
This week is declared blessed in the Name of Jesus! Go and return with testimonies by the end of the week. Amen!
Remain blessed in the Lord.
