The ignorance of Wednesday match


Ignorance

 

On Wednesday’s night, every member of my house – outsiders inclusive – all gathered in the sitting room watching England match. It was England vs Croatia night. The TV box was the center of attraction – I envied the television – all eyes fixed on the thing. Daddy’s legs move when a player shoot. I think he was supporting Croatia for the night.

Ignorant analysis flew from lips to lips. Everybody in the house had become an analyst. Noises, arguments and ignorant laughter filled the atmosphere. Adults and innocent’s children would kill themselves over an issue that brings no Penney to their pockets. Those whom nobody know are watching for the people the world recognized. A man who is coping to handle his family had already coached a team successfully with his mouth, on the sit, at the spot.

My lips was pressed. I don’t speak often. Although I was still at the place, but my mind was in another realm, I was brooding already. Thinking of how the good devil had used football in disguise to steal people’s destinies. By drawing their hearts away from Christ. Not only with football but including movies and other 21st century idols in disguise. The devil is crafty indeed.

However, after the first half of the game, I couldn’t watch anymore, I stood, I must not missed my prayer time.

Spiritual irresponsibility is the authentic root of the problems many are facing today. Discipline is the key word here. It is not how comfortable it is but it is given what it demands.

I’m a lover of the game but not at the expense of God’s interests. Football is not bad, music, movies, entertainments, all those things are not bad, but they can steal our time until we are conscious of it. And if they are stealing our time, that means they are stealing our destiny. However, our passion for them must be controlled.

 

Discipline


Disc

Discipline is not how convenient a given task is, it is going beyond your best in order to deliver a given task. It is given what it demands.

The subject discipline is very crucial in any field of life. There is no record breaker in his comfort zone. Breaking record requires stretching out from your comfort zone, it requires going extra miles. There is no star without a scar. Nothing of value will ever be for free, there must be a price you must pay.

Just like the way we have it in the physical, so also in  the spiritual. It is not just about obeying  God’s commandments, but it is the level of your obedience. God rewards us according to the level of our works in the kingdom.

Behold I come quickly my rewards are with me to give everyman according to his work shall be.”Rev.22:12.

God does not rewards group, He rewards individual.

You must put the flesh into total subjection in oder to practice what the word says, the flesh has no profit. You must even put sleep under to pray so that you will be able to do the will of God.

Wherefore lift the hands which hang down; and the feeble knees.” Heb.12:12

The Holy Spirit is the spirit of obedience. The infilling of the Holy Spirit that makes you dead to serve. Christianity is sweet when the Holy Spirit is involved.

“And I will put my spirit within you, and cause you to walk in my statutes, and ye shall keep my judgment and do them.” Ez.36:27

The topic Holy Spirit is rarely discussed, but it is one of the most important topics. Until you engage the Holy Spirit in your prayer life, don’t expect serving God to be easy.

Praying in the Holy Ghost is not nonsense, we are chanting mysteries, connect with the spirit world by speaking in tongues.

The Holy Spirit helps us to pray according to the will of God, it helps us to build our faith.

Until you change levels in your spiritual life, don’t expect your level to change in the physical.

It is not about having a growing business, it is about having a growing business man. It is not about having a growing blog, it is about having a growing blogger. It is not about having a growing academics, it is about having a growing academician. You must mature and grow in the things of God.

Interestingly, Jesus Christ was born just like anyone of us, but he grew in wisdom and knowledge. You can’t afford to stay in one position, you must grow.

Jesus increased in wisdom and stature, and in favour with God and man.”Lk.2:52

On the mount of transfiguration in Mat.5:17, after the voice from the cloud has declared His sonship. Jesus ascended his throne, vested with authorities, both positive and negative forces were compelled to obey him. There were some occasions when He didn’t had to speak, His presence compelled demons leave out their victims.

But ye, beloved building up yourself on your most Holy faith, praying in the Holy Ghost.” Jude.1:20.

The Holy Spirit is a vital spirit that helps you to remain committed, dedicated and to build up your faith. Therefore, engage with the Holy Spirit
