Topic: Do Not Reject The Word Of God [Wednesday July 5, 2017]
“… Because thou hast rejected the word of the LORD, he hath also rejected thee from being king.” 1 Samuel 15:23
As a believer you are a king and a priest. That is what God has made you. God intends for you to stand out and be unique. But when you disobey God, you will no more rule in that place. Princes are walking bare footed while fools are riding on horseback. Is it not time to tell them to come down? When you walk against what God is saying, you are rebelling or refusing allegiance to your God.
Rebellion is a show of resistance or protesting strongly that you don’t want to do what he told you. You are saying you are not going to do it and you are doing it passionately.
King Saul fell because of rebellion and his kingdom did not continue. He ended up going to witches because God stopped speaking to him. God said to Saul: I made you ruler. I made things to fall at your feet. But because you have disobeyed me, you can no longer rule. My heart bleeds because there are so many opportunities around us. So many prophesies hanging over us but many are just walking in foolishness.
The Lord is saying, son, give me your heart and let me direct your ways. It is a heart issue and not just the mouth. He says, give me your heart and your eyes will observe my way. There are ways to do it. The reason you cannot see it is because you have given your heart to somebody. Don’t you understand that the devil is also contending for your heart? Because out of the heart comes the issues of life. The devil is contending for your heart just as God. Whoever has your heart controls you and everything around you. When you give God your heart you will begin to experience more victories around you.
