CHANNELS OF FULFILLMENT DAILYD DEVOTIONAL FOR APRIL 2, 2022 (VALUELESS PURSUIT)
Topic: Valueless Pursuit.
Text: (2 Chronicle 17 vs. 10-11), (Matthew 7 vs. 8)
To live in jealousy is equal to living in Jeopardy. To be unhappy when others are progressing is equal to witchcraft. Putting effort to sponsor someone’s limitation is equal to generational damage. God’s word pointed to us today saying, “For everyone that asketh recieveth: and he that seeketh findeth; and to him that knocleth it shall be opened”.
The principle is not subjected to the white or black but to everyone, small or great. As a child of God the most that can happen in your mind while you witness others progress should be “Father, I claim this, do it for me as you did it for my brother or sister”. Years ago there was a boy who was very brilliant and a son to a teacher who teaches in the same school where he schools.
Due to the progress in the academic career of this young boy some of the teachers in the same school conspired against him; saying he was found trying to lay with a girl at the back of the school. It went as they planned; due to the level of the persons involved and the evidences they were able to produce the boy was expelled from the school. You could imagine the kind of heartbreak it could cause the mother who was a teacher in the same school. It doesn’t exalt to plan or seek for someone else’s downfall.
Though God has given us seasons of peace as regards this vision but I won’t be surprised to see someone or persons trying to paint it black. The point is plain: Whenever anyone tries to become a hindrance to someone God has lifted, God himself hinders the person. 20 years have passed and all the children are no longer in secondary school or struggling who comes first or less. Most of them have gotten married and life continued.
It was around this time (after 20 years) that the same person who championed the accusation found his way to reach the young man on the phone saying, “since that day till today, I have remained confused, frustrated and limited”. Obviously he was forgiven but imagine what the opinion of God towards him is. God’s word reprimanded us today in verse of 10 of our first scripture saying, “The fear of God is the source of peace, to every agent of discord the Lord will oppose and resist”. Pray in the Holy Ghost.
- Thank God for His word towards you today.
- Pray for the grace to be happy with yourself.
- Father, I kill any spirit of jealousy in me in Jesus name, Amen!
- Oh God as I am rejoicing over the good in other people’s life do great things for me in Jesus name, Amen!
