Morning Devotions

[5/1, 4:23 AM] Pastor Emmanuel Oshevire: Today’s SOD – 2020-04-30
TOPIC: THE DANGER OF CONFORMITY TO SOCIETAL INFLUENCE

SCRIPTURE: And with Absalom went two hundred men out of Jerusalem,”that were called; and they went in their simplicity, and they knew not anything. 2 Samuel 15″:11.

THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: To follow the people of the world is to die with them.

We live in a generation where people,”especially the youths, are under pressure to socialize or fraternize with many people. And in the course of such socializations or fraternizations, many destinies are lost. Negative societal influence is disastrous to destiny. There are many people who are regretting their current status in life as a result of yielding their lives to the influence of the society. They followed the negative influence of society and were told how to do many things and they agreed; the society told them how to dress, how to look and behave, and they agreed to the detriment of their destinies. When we follow negative societal influence, we jeopardise our destinies. But that will never be your portion, in Jesus’ Name.

Our anchor Scripture makes it clear that two hundred men of Israel followed Absalom, the son of King David in his rebellion and they all perished. Absalom was fighting his father; he wanted to push his father from the throne and take over as king while his father was still alive. So, he mobilized two hundred men of Jerusalem who did not know what was in his mind, and they joined him in his rebellion. They were influenced by Absalom and they perished by that wrong influence. The lesson here is”: to follow the people of the world is to die with them. But I decree that you shall not follow the people of the world and perish like them in Jesus’ Name. 

Some time ago,”a man told me that people do not like him. And I told him that even though people don’t like him, I like him. This is because he did not offend me. Even though some people are angry with him, I refused to be influenced by those who are not happy with him. I couldn’t also begin to get angry with him because some people were angry with him. He has not offended me, and no need to be angry with him. I wouldn’t be influenced by people to do what is not correct. 

Beloved, do not let anyone recruit you into bitterness. If someone is angry with a person and you don’t know why he is angry with the person, do not allow him to initiate you into his anger. 

Remember this”: To follow the people of the world is to die with them.

ASSIGNMENTS:

1. Let the principles of the Word of God be your guiding principles in life and destiny.

2. Refuse to follow the people of the world in doing what they do.

PRAYER: Lord,”I receive the grace to make Your Word the guiding principle of my life. Help me not to be deceived by the world, Lord in Jesus’ Name.

QUOTE: You do not belong to the spectator stand of life. You are not destined to be a casual observer. Culled from “BE WISE AND RISE” by Dr Paul Enenche.

AMAZING FACT: Dogs’ sense of smell is about 100,”000 times stronger than humans’, but they have just one-sixth our number of taste buds.

DAILY READING”: Job 16-18.

PROPHETIC WORD: You shall not end like the people of the world in Jesus Name.

I HAVE THE WISDOM OF GOD

“And God gave Solomon exceptionally much wisdom and understanding, and breadth of mind like the sand of the seashore. Solomon’s wisdom excelled the wisdom of all the people of the East and all the wisdom of Egypt. For he was wiser than all other men—than Ethan the Ezrahite, and Heman, Calcol, and Darda, the sons of Mahol. His fame was in all the nations round about. He also originated 3,000 proverbs, and his songs were 1,005. He spoke of trees, from the cedar that is in Lebanon to the hyssop that grows out of the wall; he spoke also of beasts, of birds, of creeping things, and of fish. Men came from all peoples to hear the wisdom of Solomon, and from all kings of the earth who had heard of his wisdom.” I Kings 4:29 – 34 (AMPC)

The absence of wisdom is the presence of foolishness. Just as wisdom is real, so is foolishness. Anywhere problems persist, chaos endures, and bitterness appreciated, wisdom is lacking. There is the wisdom of God, and it is God that gives it; when it is operational in you, it sets you apart; it announces you and gives you edge over your contemporaries

Nothing beats the wisdom of God. All humans on earth came under the “Spell” of Solomon’s wisdom; they submitted to him, gave their loyalty with royalties making Solomon the wealthiest in His time. Wisdom is accompanied by massive followership and wealth. I therefore decree in that name that is above every other names, the wisdom required for your showing forth, receive it, in the Name of Jesus Christ! May the wisdom of God guide you every day of this month, in the Mighty Name of Jesus Christ! By the wisdom of God at work, may this Month of May compensate for all previous failures and foolish acts, in Jesus’ Name! You are blessed! WELCOME to your season of Wisdom! WELCOME to MONTH MAY 2020!

PRAYER
Father, I thank You for the privilege to experience a new month; I receive Your wisdom and ask it guides my heart for a better living, in Jesus’ Name!

KEEP IN MIND
Nothing beats the wisdom of God.
