*TOPIC: THE ATTITUDE OF ENQUIRY*

SCRIPTURE: Thus, saith the Lord, stand ye in the ways, and see, and ask for the old paths, where is the good way, and walk therein, and ye shall find rest for your souls. But they said, we will not walk therein. Jeremiah 6:16.

THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: Until questions are asked, answers are never accessed. The right questions give rise to the right answers.

The attitude of enquiry is an important posture or positioning for hearing God or receiving Divine direction.

The attitude of enquiry refers to the capacity to ask questions, relevant questions.

Jeremiah 6:16 says,
Thus, saith the Lord, stand ye in the ways, and see, and ask for the old paths, where is the good way, and walk therein, and ye shall find rest for your souls. But they said, we will not walk therein.
The Scripture says, stand and ask.

Matthew 7:7-8 says,
7 Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you:
8 For every one that asketh receiveth; and he that seeketh findeth; and to him that knocketh it shall be opened.

Beloved, always understand that answers are the products of questions. Until questions are asked, answers are never accessed. The right questions give rise to the right answers.

So, don’t be afraid to ask God questions because God is looking for whom to answer. At the place of prayer, Abraham asked God questions and God answered him. (Genesis 18:23-26).

David also asked God several questions and God answered him. 1 Samuel 30:8 says,
And David inquired at the Lord, saying, Shall I pursue after this troop? shall I overtake them? And he answered him, Pursue: for thou shalt surely overtake them, and without fail recover all.

On another occasion, David enquired of God again. He heard that Saul was coming to Keilah, so, he asked God if the people of Keilah would deliver him into the hands of Saul and God answered him. (1 Samuel 23:10-13).

Beloved, maintain the attitude of enquiry. God is willing to give you Direction when you ask Him with a humble heart.

Remember this: Until questions are asked, answers are never accessed. The right questions give rise to the right answers.

ASSIGNMENTS:
1. Make up your mind to seek the Mind of God over any issue you may be dealing with.
2. Maintain a humble disposition before God in order to hear from Him.

PRAYER: Thank You Lord for Your willingness to speak to me. I ask for the Spirit of humility to approach You always, Lord, in Jesus’ Name.

QUOTE: It is good to know that humility is not a gift; it is a choice. You cannot say a man is gifted with humility. Culled from “WHO ARE YOU?” by Dr Paul Enenche.

DAILY BIBLE READING: Proverbs 31 – Ecclesiastes 2.

AMAZING FACT: When a mother zebra gives birth, she will usually keep her foal away from all other zebras for two or three days until the foal can recognize her scent, voice, and appearance.

PROPHETIC WORD/DECLARATION: Every question in your heart today receives answers from the Master in Jesus’ Name.

*DATE: FRIDAY JULY 8TH 2022*

*THEME: TOP UP YOUR FUEL TANK*

*MEMORISE*:
And he said unto them, Come ye yourselves apart into a desert place, and rest a while: for there were many coming and going, and they had no leisure so much as to eat. Mark 6:31

READ: Mark 6:30 -32
30 And the apostles gathered themselves together unto Jesus, and told him all things, both what they had done, and what they had taught.

31 And he said unto them, Come ye yourselves apart into a desert place, and rest a while: for there were many coming and going, and they had no leisure so much as to eat.

32 And they departed into a desert place by ship privately.

*MESSAGE*
One major thing about how a car works is the fact that cars need a constant supply of fuel to keep running. It does not matter how much fuel is in the tank; after it has run for a while, the fuel will be exhausted, and then it would not be able to run until the tank is refilled. Similarly, there is always a need for you to refill after you have given out so much. After expending a lot of energy, you need to go aside, rest and eat to regain strength. In memory verse for today, Jesus told the disciples to go aside , and rest after their strenuous evangelism.

The reason many men of God are becoming less effective is that they don’t rest. There are many people always thronging them because of anointing, but if they don’t get adequate rest, they would break down. You may be very anointed, but you are still flesh and blood. Even Jesus Christ was so tired that He went to the inner part of the ship where no one could disturb Him and slept through a storm (Mark 4:37-38).

Sometimes, you also need to refill your anointing tank. After many major miracles that Jesus did, He went aside to the mountain to pray (Matthew 14:16-23). I told one of my sons one day to take things easy because he was attending so many programmes with little time for him to refill. He looked at me in a funny way, as if to say, “But l see you also working just as hard”. I had to point his attention to the fact that l have only very few engagements in a certain period of every year, especially when we fast in the Redeemed Christian Church of God. You don’t see me traveling during these periods. If l must minister somewhere, it would be close to my base because l am refilling my tank. If you don’t refill the anointing and goes dry, the people will notice and then you would realize that it is not really you they live, it is the anointing you carry.

Ever car mechanic will tell you that it is dangerous to run your car on an empty tank. If you do, the fuel pump would suck up some debris and that can cause serious damage to your car. Don’t run around empty. When you don’t take time to refill your energy or anointing tank, you are endangering your life.

*ACTION POINT*
Always take out time to refill your tank, whether it is knowledge, anointing, energy or whatever you expend.

*HYMN 3: DEEPER DEEPER IN THE LOVE OF JESUS*

1 Deeper, deeper in the love of Jesus
Daily let me go;
Higher, higher in the school of wisdom,
More of grace to know.

*Refrain*:
Oh, deeper yet, I pray,
And higher every day,
And wiser, blessed Lord,
In Thy precious, holy Word.
 
2 Deeper, deeper, blessed Holy Spirit,
Take me deeper still,
Till my life is wholly lost in Jesus,
And His perfect will.

3 Deeper, deeper! though it cost hard trials,
Deeper let me go!
Rooted in the holy love of Jesus,
Let me fruitful grow.

4 Deeper, higher, every day in Jesus,
Till all conflict past,
Finds me conqu’ror, and in His own image
Perfected at last.

5 Deeper, deeper in the faith of Jesus,
Holy faith and true;
In His pow’r and soul exulting wisdom
Let me peace pursue.
