FIRE SCRIPTURE: Psalm 63: 1-8; Psalm 42:1-2
God created man primarily for fellowship. The Almighty purposed that the spirit of man should make Him, the Lord God, its habitation. The satanic incursion into the life of man however disrupted this divine agenda. The scale of priority was changed. Man started living for self rather than living for God.
Yet man cannot find rest for his soul without establishing that vital connection with the Almighty God. That deep hollow and emptiness in the heart of man shall continue to exist until man makes a complete U-turn and begin to earnestly seek God like the Psalmist whose soul pursues after God passionately.
Beloved, it is a known fact that since after the fall, human beings have been pursuing a lot of things, both legitimate and illegitimate, without thinking much about pursuing and possessing the Lord God of mercy. Many spend their lives pursuing money, building houses and buying mansions and exotic cars. Some pursue the acquisition of wealth and fame even to the obvious damnation of their souls.
Other people pursue after degrees and other academic certificates. Many others have been enslaved by the gathering of designer wears, shoes, bags and ostentatious jewelries. In fact, some people spend all their time pursuing after the opposite sex. There are other people who pursue the acquisition of satanic power and dark magical art.
The devil has so much overwhelmed many lives with evil appetite, inordinate passion and has also distracted them from pursuing God, which is the Ultimate Pursuit. My beloved friend, hope you are not entangled by this rat race which is dragging many into hell fire. Our Lord Jesus Christ, in warning against wrong pursuit in life, says in Luke 12:15, “… Take heed, and beware of covetousness: for a man’s life consistent not in the abundance of the things which he possesses.”
I believe you now understand the message the Spirit of Christ has passed across to you. May your heart be opened to His voice today, in the name of Jesus.
1. Lord Jesus, capture my heart, in the name of Jesus.
2. Satanic tares programmed to invade my heart, die by fire, in the name of Jesus.
3. Undiluted love of God, explode in my heart, in the name of Jesus.
4. My soul, be delivered from the track of wrong pursuits, in the name of Jesus.
5. Whatever will not add value to my life but is assigned to pull me down, release me and die now, in the name of Jesus.
6. O Lord, fill me with deep hunger for You, in the name of Jesus.
7. My inner man, receive fresh fire, in the name of Jesus.
