DRAW CLOSER TO GOD 2- Ayo Oritsejafor

 “Draw nigh to God, and He will draw nigh to you…” (James 4:8a).

God introduced Job to Satan and boasted that he loved Him passionately. Job did not fail God. At the height of his pain and agony, he said: “… all the days of my appointed time will I wait, till my change comes” (Job 14:14). He did not look at his depraved situation. His love for God upheld and sustained him to the point that all his friends deserted him but he knew that God will defend him. “For I know that my Redeemer liveth…” (Job 19:25).

Your deep knowledge of and love for God will enable you to scale over the storms that have swallowed many. Even your enemies will not understand how you escaped them. Even the devil will be confused about you. Get lost in God and His word and the God of heaven will make you a wonder to many. The keys to your breakthrough in life are not far from you. Just pursue Him, run after Him and see what He can do for you!

In conclusion, I want you to understand that God has called you to do His work in your local church. Bring yourself down. Humble yourself and have true knowledge of Him. Labour for God and let Him labour for you. Let the God who called you begin to do in your life what you cannot do for yourself.. Let God be your Good Shepherd and bless you as you shepherd His flock and bless them (Mt. 25:31-40). In I Sam. 15:1, the Prophet Samuel said to Saul: “…The LORD sent me to anoint thee to be king over His people, over Israel: now therefore hearken thou unto the voice of the words of the LORD.”

This word will set you apart for the work of God. You will no more do the work of God in the flesh or deceitfully. This word will release an anointing that will make you peculiar, unique, keep you on top and make you a wonder in every area of your life, in Jesus mighty name!

FURTHER READING: Job 1:8-10; Jeremiah 48:10

PRAYER/CONFESSION: LORD, in your mercy purge me of all impurities that blocked the light of Your word from my life, in Jesus mighty name.

Amen! Let me know you deep enough to love you and live in your will for my life daily, in Jesus mighty name. Amen!!

 

WORDS OF WISDOM: The devil has no business with those that are busy for God.
