TOPIC: THE ATTITUDE OF ENQUIRY: A PATHWAY TO GREATNESS.
SCRIPTURE: Thus saith the Lord, Stand ye in the ways, and see, and ask for the old paths, where is the good way, and walk therein, and ye shall find rest for your souls. But they said, We will not walk therein. Jeremiah 6:16
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: Divine Direction is the backbone of spiritual conquerors.
One way to learn the principles of greatness is to observe the lives of great men. David was an enviable great man who walked with God in his time. And one attribute of David was his attitude of always enquiring from God what to do at critical times. David would always enquire from God before making any move.
At different occasions when David was involved in battles with the philistines, he would enquire of the Lord. At one time, God told him to go and fight the philistines but at another time, God told him not to go (2 Samuel 5:17-25).
Do you know the reason why David did not lose any battle? It was because he always asked God questions. Divine Direction is the backbone of spiritual conquerors. You will not miss it another time, in Jesus’ Name.
God’s servant, Papa Oyedepo, said that when they were given the certificate for the opening of the Covenant University, everyone was rejoicing, but he refused to join others in the excitement until he had confirmed that God was behind it. So, he held the certificate in his hands and said, “Oh Lord, are you in this, or we just went to open a university? If you are not in it, I will tear this certificate now!” And God said, “I am the one. Go ahead.”
You see, the attitude of enquiry is a character of great men. My counsel is, refuse to embark on any project until you have received approval from God. Don’t be in a hurry to do anything until you have received an approval from God.
Remember this: Divine Direction is the backbone of spiritual conquerors
1. Maintain an attitude of enquiry always.
2. Don’t take a step until God gives you an approval to do so.
PRAYER: Thank You Lord for Your Word to me today. I receive the grace to maintain a consistent attitude of enquiry, Lord, in Jesus’ Name.
