Topic: Your Passion And Your Preservation [Friday February 9, 2018]
Scripture: Because thou hast made the Lord, which is my refuge, even the most High, thy habitation; There shall no evil befall thee, neither shall any plague come nigh thy dwelling.Psalm 91:9-10
Thought For The Day: No one can waste the life of a God chaser.
Like we saw previously, in our world today, people are being driven by different passions. Some are driven into sin, and consequently destruction by their passions. However, it is important to note again that passion for God is the most profitable passion in life and eternity.
Today, we are going to see more profits of passion for God.
- Your passion for God determines your protection by God. David was passionate for God (Psalms 63:1-6) and in Psalms 23:4, he said, 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.
No one can waste the life of a God chaser. You cannot be pursuing God and the devil is successfully pursuing you unto destruction (Isaiah 43:1-4).
- Your passion for God determines your prominence in life. Daniel was passionate for God (Daniel 6:10) and he was the most prominent personality in the Babylonian and Medio-Persian Empires (Daniel 6:1-3). You cannot be obscure if you are passionate for God. Isaiah 60:1, says, Arise, shine; for thy light is come, and the glory of the Lord is risen upon thee.
People who were passionate for God in scripture – Joseph, David, Nehemiah, Esther, Job, Daniel etc., were prominent in their generations. They put God first and they could not come last in their generation.
Beloved, pursue God consistently, and the things the world is struggling for would struggle for you.
Remember this: No one can waste the life of a God chaser.
- Make your daily fellowship with God a priority. Pray, worship God and study the Scripture before you begin your daily activity.
Make demands on the preservation Power of God over your life, family, and career.
