[11/17, 6:06 AM] 919063: Be spiritually sensitive
Sunday 17th November 2019
‘To be spiritually minded is life and peace.’ Romans 8:6 NKJV
Paul writes, ‘Those who live according to the flesh set their minds on the things of the flesh, but those who live according to the Spirit, the things of the Spirit’ (Romans 8:5 NKJV).
Passenger planes are designed to fly in two ways – through the skill of a pilot and the commands they receive from the control tower. To ‘live according to the Spirit’ means obeying his promptings. You do that by going through your day with an awareness of his presence. Submit, as you feel him tugging at your heart to take a particular course of action, even if you don’t quite understand why. You may be prompted to drop a particular conversation, turn away quickly from a certain television programme, walk away from a questionable environment, or even go ‘by another way’ (like the wise men in Matthew 2:12). Whatever it is, do it immediately. The Holy Spirit may be warning you about a temptation you’ll be unable to resist unless you obey him there and then. Perhaps there’s someone who comes to your mind during the day, and you know he or she is going through a difficult time and could use some support. Get in touch with them. God wants to minister to that person through you, and he will bless you when you do it.
The Holy Spirit may guide you to do a certain thing, or take a risk you never imagined you’d take. The wisest thing is always to submit to his plan, regardless of whether or not it makes sense to you. God knows all things, including your future, and his direction is always for your benefit.

TOPIC: YOUR TONGUE IS YOUR GUN
SCRIPTURE: Your tongue plots destruction,”like a sharp razor…
Psalms 52″:2a (STV)
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: You either use your tongue to trigger your tribulation or terminate your temptation
The tongue is the fleshy muscular organ in the mouth of a mammal. In humans,”it is used for articulating speech amongst other uses.
From our anchor scripture, it is clear that the tongue is a weapon. It has the ability to function as a weapon of destruction or as a weapon of resurrection depending on how it is used. This is why the Bible says in proverbs 18″:21 that death and life are in the power of the tongue… your tongue is potent enough to either make you or mar you. Do not use your tongue to gun down your life but use it to build up your destiny.
*You either use your tongue to trigger your tribulation or terminate your temptation.
*Never speak your condition,”rather speak your conviction.
*Do not speak your situation, speak your expectation.
*Do not speak what you are passing through; rather, speak what should pass through you.
*Do not speak the problem, speak progress.
The truth is, your speech determines your reach in life. The way you talk determines the way you end; there is no destiny for the careless talker.
Today, I prophesy on you the grace to be a right talker. Your tongue shall not land you in trouble but it shall deliver you from trouble, in Jesus’ Name.
REMEMBER THIS”: You either use your tongue to trigger your tribulation or terminate your temptation

THEME: I WILL NOT SUFFER WANT.
The LORD is my shepherd; I shall not want. Psalm 23:1
READ: Psalm 23:1-6
1. The LORD is my shepherd; I shall not want.
2. He maketh me to lie down in green pastures: he leadeth me beside the still waters.
3. He restoreth my soul: he leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for his name’s sake.
4. Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me.
5. Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies: thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over.
6. Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life: and I will dwell in the house of the LORD for ever.
And this is the confidence that we have in him, that, if we ask any thing according to his will, he heareth us: And if we know that he hear us, whatsoever we ask, we know that we have the petitions that we desired of him. 1 John 5:14-15
This scripture reveals that as children of God, we should have the kind of confidence that David had when he penned words of Psalm 23:1. Why would a child of God not be in want? It is because the Shepherd of our lives, the Almighty God, is also our Provider. For this reason, our Good Shepherd makes us to lie down in green pastures, and as if that is not enough, this same Jehovah Rohi leads us besides the still waters. Psalm 23:3 reveals righteous living as another secret to a life of not being in want. Speaking of this, Proverbs 14:34 says:
“Righteousness exalteth a nation: but sin is a reproach to any people.”
In other words, if you do not want to suffer lack, live a holy life. The reason why I don’t need to be persuaded to live holy is because having tasted poverty in the real sense of it and also tasting a little life of abundance, I know that the latter is far better than the former, and I have traced the life of abundance I enjoy to the time I gave my life to Christ. So, I have made up my mind that I will be obedient to God’s word in its entirety, which is what holiness is all about.
When you study David’s life, you will discover that one of the secrets to his life of abundance is that he was fearless. Some people are afraid of venturing into projects or careers that would bring them abundant materia blessings because of the fear of death. Not David! Even when King Saul tried to persuade him not to fight Goliath for fear of him getting killed, he was not deterred (1 samuel 17:33). He boldly declared in Psalm 23:4 that though he walked through the valley of the shadow of death, he would fear no evil, because the Good Shepherd was with him. After he became king, he lacked nothing because he did not allow the fear of death to rule his life. To sum it all up, he said in Psalm 23:6:
“Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life: and I will dwell in the house of the LORD for ever.”
This verse is a great lesson to those who stop presenting themselves in worship before God in His sanctuary after receiving an initial blessing from Him. Consequently, their supplies dry up in a short while due to their ingratitude. To remain connected to the One who dailyloads you with benefits, abide in His presence and give Him the worship He deserves. When you continually do this, He will show Himself as the Mighty Provider in your life.
Father, I confess anew that you are the Shepherd of my life, please don’t let me lack any good thing that I need to fulfil my destiny.
BIBLE IN ONE YEAR: Job 30-32

HYMN 7: MY HOPE IS BUILT ON NOTHING LESS
My hope is built on nothing less
Than Jesus’ blood and righteousness
I dare not trust the sweetest frame
But wholly lean on Jesus’ name
On Christ the solid Rock I stand
All other ground is sinking sand
All other ground is sinking sand
When darkness hides His lovely face
I rest on His unchanging grace
In every high and stormy gale
My anchor holds within the veil
His oath, His covenant, His blood
Support me in the whelming flood
When all around my soul gives way
He then is all my hope and stay
When He shall come with trumpet sound
Oh may I then in Him be found
Dressed in His righteousness alone
Faultless to stand before the throne
