We are gathering together unto Thee(x2). Unto The Lord  shall the gathering of His people be, we are gathering together unto Thee.

Yes our gathering is unto the King of kings, the Lord of lords, The Ancient of Days. Glory be to Your Name O Lord! Father, we thank You for all that You have been doing for us. We are grateful to You for Your benevolence that far above human understanding. Your love that has no end. Thank You Lord.

Beloved, hope you are good? Thanks be Jesus Who loves us and die for us, that you and I might live a godly lives. A life devoid of guilt. Blessed be His Holy Name. His love shall not end neither will He abandon us for Christ is not a changing lover. He abides with us all through the way, in our thick and thin, he is our ever present Help. Thank you Jesus for sure cares.

If you are just joining us or miss out in any of the last week devotional series, I advise you go back to it as it forms the premise upon which this devotional stands on. We dwelleth so much on how we can further the gospel in this present age while considering alone side the lives of those used by God to influence their generation at the bible times.

However, we consider the message before us today as  important to help our Christian race. Beloved, if a man like Noah could do it at that time, it then means we have no excuse whatsoever to give. He not only stood for God, one can also point to his children as godly children. Wow! Interesting I must say, they lived a blameless life before God and God was pleased with them and saved them along with their father.

Beloved, how is it in your own house/family? Can same report be said of you? Do you have all your children serving the living God or have they all gone in different directions not being accountable to you of their dealings in the name of liberty or civilization? Mind you because you must give account of each and every one of them including your domestic helps while they were with you because God has a reason for entrusting them into your care. Praise the Lord.

Another big question is “how are you living your life before them? The ministry God gave to Noah took him hundred years to accomplish according to the bible account, none of this children rebelled against their father. We also learnt that they all took their wives along, so is not as if they are teenagers, who had no options to say no but rather they followed their father’s footstep in serving God.

Someone is not agreeing with me in totality. You will be convince with the next example. What will you say of Eli’s and his sons? Why did God total destroyed his priestly lineage that has never been in the land of Israel? Why was none of them spared considering God’s nature? Beloved, we have a big responsibility entrusted into our care. We must not afford to fail God.

No situation under heaven is permissible for an ungodly seeds. So watch out that you faileth not God in the pursuit of career, business or any other interest against His divine assignment. To guide against this, make sure the Holy Spirit is your Companion, Friend, and Director.

Before this children goes astray, He will prompt you. He will reveal their actions to you. Even your children will be scared when they want to do evil knowing that they have godly parents whose heavens are open and who have sweet communion with Holy Spirit.

The Holy Spirit just bears witness in my heart now, why most parents’ spiritual visions are either blur or closed. This class of parents partake in the ungodly returns of their children therefore like the children, this entice them away from God divine position or role to idolatry even when it was not God’s original plan (Num 24:14; 25:1-3).

Then the Lord said to Noah, “Enter the ark, you and all your household, for I have seen that you [alone] are righteous before Me in this generation.”—Genesis 7:1

The children of Noah faced a significant decision. They lived in a world where everyone blatantly disregarded God. Wickedness was the norm. No one would have condemned Noah’s sons for living evil lives like the rest of society—no one except their father. In a world rampant with ungodly attitudes and every form of wicked behavior, they were fortunate to be Noah’s sons.

When their father invited them to spend the next hundred years building an ark in obedience to a word from God, Noah’s sons had to choose whether to believe those around them or to trust their father. They chose to join their father. What a wonderful testimony of Noah’s godly influence in his home! How fortunate for Shem, Ham, and Japheth that their father refused to compromise his integrity, even though everyone else in his society had done so.

Your life has an influence on those around you as well. Your spouse and your children are profoundly affected by your choices. Your coworkers, your neighbors, and your friends will all be impacted by your life. As the world tries to persuade people to follow its standard, your life should stand in stark contrast as an example of a righteous person. Your life should convince those around you of the wisdom of following God. Do not underestimate the positive effect that your obedience will have upon those close to you.

Further reading how they Spirit deal with us:

The Spirit Himself testifies together with our spirit that we are God’s children,

and if children, also heirs—heirs of God and co-heirs with Christ—seeing that we suffer with Him so that we may also be glorified with Him.—Romans 8:16–17

It is impossible to perceive all that became ours when we were born again. There is no way we can understand all that heaven is like. How could we ever comprehend all that is ours as fellow heirs with Christ? The knowledge that we will share Christ’s inheritance with Him absolutely astounds us! Left to our own, we could not begin to understand all that we received once we became children of the King. The Holy Spirit convinces us that we are indeed children of God and helps us understand the riches of our inheritance.

Perhaps you did not have a loving father. The Spirit’s role is to teach you how to respond to a Father who relates to you only in perfect love and how to live like a child of the King. Perhaps you grew up in poverty. The Spirit will show you the inexhaustible riches available to you as a child of God.

If you were simply declared an heir and then left on your own, you could not begin to use your inheritance. But the Father has given you His Spirit to serve as your Guide and Teacher. The Holy Spirit will lead you to the magnificent promises and resources that became available when God adopted you into His family. Take time to meditate on the wonderful promises of God that are available to you. Let the Holy Spirit convince you of the reality that you are, indeed, a child of God and a fellow heir of Christ.

Beloved does the story you just read your case? You are not experiencing all that the Lord has given you as a package in salvation. Be humble enough go back to Him and the Holy Spirit will surely bear witness of you before God and man.

What a blessed week ahead of us. The Lord will bless you and honour you. Not the honour of man as in (Num 24:11) but that honour confers on us through the power of the Holy Spirit. Praise the Lord.

Remain blessed in the Lord.
