OPEN HEAVENS DEVOTIONAL FOR TODAY
One major characteristic of children is that they are always on the lookout for food. When you put something in the hand of a baby, the next thing he or she will do is to put it in his/her mouth. Food is a significant part of their daily activities. If food becomes the topmost priority to you to the extent that is the first thing you think of every day, you are likened to an immature leader whose followers are doomed, as we see in our memory verse today. For such people, whatever is placed in their care is seriously endangered.
According to (1 Kings 17:2-6), God personally took responsibility for Elijah’s feeding and only served him twice daily. This implies that God’s standard for eating especially for adults, is twice a day. I remember the day I shared this message with some Pastors; many of them did not like my Bible study of that day because they were used to the concept of ‘three square meals a day’. In addition to this, many people still have the habit of snacking just when they are about to sleep. This is not good for you at all, especially if you are to be in charge of important things, including your destiny. As an adult, it is advisable that you eat only twice a day; that is what the Lord who made your body recommends.
As a matter of fact, those who are really serious about their destiny don’t eat every day. Paul the Apostle said in (2 Corinthians 11:27) that he fasted often. No wonder he fulfilled his destiny (2 Timothy 4:7-8). I am 80 years old now, and I don’t eat every day; I still fast often because I want to finish my course, I want to fulfil my destiny before I leave this world.
In 1984, I was on a forty-day fast, lying weak on my prayer mat, when someone came in, saw me and asked, “What else are you looking for in life that is making you fast this much?” That was 38 years ago; what had I achieved then that someone would advise me to stop fasting? Look how far I have come since then. I’m sure it is clear that I made a good choice by ignoring the fellow. What have you achieved so far? Are you satisfied with it? You should only eat every day when you are no longer striving for anything more than you have already.
Father, please don’t let my belly hinder me from fulfilling my destiny, in the mighty name of Jesus.
