A humble heart – humility


 

A humble heartContinues….

(4) You need humility because it secures your access to divine provisions. Wait a minute, Lion isn’t the greatest animal; sheep is the greatest animal. Reason? The scripture says that the lion lacks and suffers hunger but the sheep’s welfares are catered for.

Psalm 34:10 KJV
“The young lions do lack, and suffer hunger: but they that seek the Lord shall not want any good thing .”

Matthew 6:6 KJV
“But thou, when thou prayest, enter into thy closet, and when thou hast shut thy door, pray to thy Father which is in secret; and thy Father which seeth in secret shall reward thee openly.”

Sheep will always obey his master. Obedience is the master key to all the blessings in this kingdom.

Deuteronomy 28:1-3 KJV
“And it shall come to pass, if thou shalt hearken diligently unto the voice of the Lord thy God, to observe and to do all his commandments which I command thee this day, that the Lord thy God will set thee on high above all nations of the earth: [2] And all these blessings shall come on thee, and overtake thee, if thou shalt hearken unto the voice of the Lord thy God. [3] Blessed shalt thou be in the city, and blessed shalt thou be in the field.”

How can I be humbled?

(1). Obey God’s commandments : Anything can fail; obedience to scriptural instructions can never fail. God is a commander. God operates basically on commandments and attached rewards for obeying them.

You as a partner with God; play your part of the deal and let God play His part.

James 1:22 KJV
“But be ye doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving your own selves.”

Your tomorrow is determined by the level of your obedience today. You cannot be dedicated today and not be decorated tomorrow.

Philippians 2:7-11 KJV
“But made himself of no reputation, and took upon him the form of a servant, and was made in the likeness of men: [8] And being found in fashion as a man, he humbled himself, and became obedient unto death, even the death of the cross. [9] Wherefore God also hath highly exalted him, and given him a name which is above every name: [10] That at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of things in heaven, and things in earth, and things under the earth; [11] And that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.”

Jesus Christ operated on this principle during His earthly ministry and He was enthroned.

Carry a heart for Christ


Carry a heart for Christ

“O God, thou art my God; early will I seek thee: my soul thirsteth for thee; my flesh longeth for thee in dry and thirsty land, where no water is.” PS.63:1

Carry a heart for Jesus. Let the things of God be at the center of your heart.

There is no amount of prayer and fasting that can stop a labouring Christian’s success in life.

How can you say you love someone when you don’t know his interest?

Until you make the kingdom interest your top priority in life, don’t expect any kind of addition.

You don’t have to become a full-time preacher. As a matter of fact not even all preachers are kingdom addicts, many are self-centered and fame seekers. Indeed, to them preaching is a vocation, not a calling.

There is nothing like the gift of soul winning. Soul winning is every believer’s mandate.

Ye have not chosen me, but I have chosen you, and ordained you, that ye should go and bring forth fruit, and that your fruit should remain: that whatsoever ye ask of the father of my name, he may give it to you.” Jn.15:16.

If you will not busy yourself with God’s primary interest, don’t expect God to busy himself with your earthly well-being.

“But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness and all these things shall be added unto you.” Mat.6:33

Before you can enjoy all kind of additions, you must let your heart beat for God by pursuing after his interests.

If the things of God does not bother you, the release of your blessings is not in view. How much you count before Him is determined by how much you are moved by God’s things.
