Topic: Make Things Work Out [Wednesday March 15, 2017]
“But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.” (Matthew 6:33)
Many Christians have been so weighed down by the demands and pressures of life that they have started putting the cart before the horse. The word of God is crystal clear concerning the shape our lives should take. If your allegiance is to God’s altar, His pattern is seek ye first. I feel very sorry for people who don’t serve God with zeal.
Beyond them, my heart goes out to people who don’t know Christ at all. Apart from this life, eternity awaits everyone. Are you enjoying your life as it is now? If you are not, after suffering in this life, would you want to go on to suffer forever? Receive Jesus into your life now. The load of this world is too heavy for anyone to carry. Jesus Christ said you should drop the load of this world and take up His own load. He is calling you. He wants to give you rest.
Be zealous for Christ. Let them call you any name they like. Your fire is burning on His altar. When you start reaping the positive rewards of your zealous service, those who were laughing at you will come to pay you homage. If you want to succeed at something, find someone that has succeeded at it. If I am impacting my generation, you must do the same. What you see of me today did not start today. My secret is that my fire on God’s altar has never gone out and I intend to keep it that way for the rest of my life. Hold fast to God’s altar and see what He will do for you.
WORD OF WISDOM: Without His yoke, the world will choke you.
PRAYER/CONFESSION: Father, my spiritual father Papa Ayo Oritsejafor is impacting his world. I tap from his grace. I will impact my world.
