There is nothing as beautiful, glorious and wonderful as following a leader you can trust, a leader who not only knows the way but a leader who is the way. He is also the life and the truth. That is why you can stake your life on him and you will not make mistake. Anyone who has not found Christ on a personal relationship basis has missed the way. Anyone who misses the way will end up in disaster. I don’t think we are giving this the seriousness it deserves. If we do, we will not have people around us whom we claim to love but are not in the way and yet be comfortable. Are you interceding for souls around you who are not in the way? How many souls have you won this year? What have you been posting to your account in heaven?
Every passing moment brings us closer and closer to eternity; every day presents us the opportunity to win souls, opportunity to serve in God’s kingdom and opportunity to post investment up where it matters most; where there is neither inflation nor devaluation.
- Ask God to grant you the grace to make the most of the opportunities that he brings your way.
- Ask him for mercy in all the ways that you have not optimized opportunities given you in the past. Ask him to open your eyes and help you to make hay while the sun still shines.
- Ask him to help you to invest your life on things that have eternal value knowing that the best way to live is to invest your life on things that outlive you.
This is the time to enter into covenant with God because he is a covenant keeping God. This is the time to be addicted to the presence of God. This is not the time to play Church or denomination. This is the time to place more value on your relationship with God. This is the time to have a consolidated walk with God; it is only those with consolidated character that can withstand what is already happening in the world and what will yet happen.
- Lord, grant that I will never be caught unawares. May I never be on the wrong side of prophecy. Help me to place more value on my relationship with you.
- I ask you to reveal yourself to me and grant me the grace to be at the center of your will for my life. Grant me grace to walk hand in hand with you so that your purpose may be fulfilled in my life.
- Shield me and hide me in the clefts of the rock all the days of my life.
- Protect me from plagues and the noisome pestilence. Protect every member of my family as we go out and as we come in, in Jesus name.
