    DO NOT TAKE REVENGE

    1Sam. 24:1-6

    Revenge has to do with paying evil for evil. Saul was really after David’s life because David loved God and His favour was upon David. The boy David prospered in all his endeavours. Do you love God? Learn to do, say and act right always. At this time, David and his army were in caves (i.e. natural holes beside hills or mountains). Saul kept searching for David. One day after Saul and his men concluded their search of David, Saul became very tired and decided to rest. While sleeping, David got to him and rather than kill him, he only cut off part of his cloth. In fact, that was an opportunity to end Saul’s life, but he said, “The Lord forbid that I should do this thing unto my master, the Lord’s anointed.”

    Who has offended you at home, at school, at your place of work or in your yard? Could it be that there are people who are just after your hurt; who are really torn on your flesh and your family; such that deliberately advance plans take your life, like Saul did to David? Have you now started considering a fight them back or waiting for an opportunity to revenge! God is saying, “No” to you. “Vengeance is mine”, says the Lord. Child of God give, God a chance to handle all those issues concerning you, in His own way and time! By and large, you will still be unable to handle these types of issues in best possible way that will give God glory, and ensure your safety and longitivity of life. Allow only God to undertake all cases of vengeance for you, from this day forward!

    MEDITATION:       

    “…Vengeance is mine; I will repay, saith the Lord.” (Romans 12:19c)

    PRAYER POINTS: 

    1        Thank God for the gift of life and for today’s word.

    2        Ask the Lord for the grace to always hold your peace while He fights for you.

    3        Pray that God will help you to overcome evil with good as David did..

    GOD IS OUR PROVIDER 

    Exodus 3:21-22, Matt. 6:25-32

    Prov. 13:22b says, “the wealth of the sinner is laid up for the just”. The sinners will live and work to favour the righteous. Our God owns the earth, the world and all that are in it. As God’s children, we can freely access and possess His abundance wealth and resources.

    The riches of the Gentiles are ours; and the secret treasures of darkness He is capable of redistributing to His own. He knows that the journey to the promise land is long, so, He has make good plan to sustain you with spiritual and physical provisions for this great journey. He provides dew and rain to water to plants. He blesses the works of our hands and the sources of our incomes. God created you and has continued to preserve your life for a purpose, in spite of all! He has your name in the list for daily bread!

    God takes care of the birds of the air; He beautifies the lilies (flowers) in the field, yet you are more valuable than all these! God is our helper, provider, strengthener, shield and buckler. The present delay is not denial. You are not abandoned in God’s scheme of things. If He could do for the birds, animals and plants, how much more you that He has placed more value on? Only continue to be faithful. Stop being unnecessarily worried; rather be more concerned on how you can continue please Him, and serve Him more faithfully.

    MEDITATION:

    …Take no thought for your life, what ye shall eat or what ye shall

    drink. (Matthew 6:25)

    PRAYER POINTS:

    1        Begin to thank God for the gift of life and today’s word.

    2        Thank God for His all-round provision even your salvation.

    3        Pray that God will deliver you from the spirit of worries and discouragement..

    CURSE NO MAN

    Acts 26:14-25          

    Apostle Paul was before King Agrippa to make his defense. He told of his conversion experience. Do you have a testimony to share? In the course of time, Festus became uncomfortable and said to Paul: “…much learning doth make thee mad” (Acts 26:24). This is unfair to a Minister of the gospel. Do you also curse people? Do you abuse your teachers, Pastors and people, instead of giving them the respect that is due them?

    How often do you abuse your children? In Acts chapter 12:15, little Rhoda was said to be mad while she was saying the truth about Peter’s release from prison. It is not good to abuse people not even children. God is not happy with those that abuse their fellow human beings.

    Our mouth is meant to praise God not to abuse people who are made in the image of God. It has been commonly observed that most people that drivers often find themselves in situations where they abuse other drivers. Never tend to be like that; rather be an example of the believers in charity, conduct and everything you do (II Timothy 4:12).

    MEDITATION:

    “Out of the same mouth proceedeth blessing and cursing. My brethren, these things ought not so to be” (James 3:10).

    PRAYER POINTS:

    1    Ask the Lord for mercy

    2     Pray that God will help you to tame your tongue

    3  Ask for the grace to be filled with only blessings for people and not curses

    GOD’S LOVE FOR THE BELIEVER

    I John 3:1-3

    Whenever God finds you serving Him in Spirit and truth He becomes happy and proud of you. His presence will never depart from you and He will continue to guide you in all your ways. His love will continually abide with you. To continue to make God happy, you should present your body a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable service (Romans 12:1).

    Without holiness you will not attract the love of God to yourself because God is Holy. As a believer, expecting the second coming of the Lord, you must purify yourself from every appearance of evil, because our God is a pure God.

    God demonstrated His love towards us in that while we were yet sinners Christ died for us (Romans 5:8). More so, in 1 John 3:1 the bible says that God bestowed upon us greater love above everyone else could love. He summarized His love to us by giving His only begotten son to die for you and me (John 3:16).

    Haven seen how much God loves you, what manner of person are you to be in showing love for God and all His works on earth. You cannot pay Him for all He has done for you. All He needs from you is to love and serve Him daily with all your heart.

    MEDITATION:

    “Behold what manner of love the Father hath bestowed upon us, that we should be called the sons of God (I John 3:1)

    PRAYER POINTS:

    1. Thank God for His love upon you

    2. Ask for the grace to keep yourself pure and to love others as God loves you

    WALKING IN TRUTH

    2 John 1:4; John 14:6

    According to our first scripture today, God commanded us to walk in truth, while in the second scripture Jesus said: “…I am the way, the truth and the life…”.

    When one is walking in truth, which means that such a person is in Christ. If Christ is the way, it means you will never miss your way if you walk in Him. In every situation you may find yourself, your solution will definitely come if you walk in truth (Christ). This is because He is the way, the truth and the life and no man comes to the Father but by Him.

    Have you received Him, and are you walking in the TRUTH? If no, do that today and you will never miss your path; for He alone is and knows the way through your life wilderness journey.

    Pounder over all your activities on earth. How truthful are you? Can someone trust you and will not be disappointed at last? Hold on to God!

    MEDITATION:

    “… I am the way the truth and the life, no man cometh unto the Father but by me” (John 14:6)

    PRAYER POINTS:

    1. Thank God for life and pray on today’s words as you are led

    2. Pray that God will help you to walk in truth

    RUTH: AN EXAPLLE OF HARD WORK

    Ruth 2:6-7

    Ruth was the daughter-in-law of Naomi. Both of them returned from the land of Moab to Bethlehem. They returned during the barley harvest. Ruth loved Naomi so much and was ready to provide for her since their husbands were dead. She was ready to do any kind of menial job to provide for their family’s needs. Can you also act like Ruth? She was strong, loving and caring.

    One day, with the permission of Naomi, she went to harvest barley in one rich man’s field. The name of that rich man was Boaz, and she found favour before him. The Lord is ever ready to grant favour to His children, especially those who are humble and obedient like Ruth.

    Do you work hard as a student in your school? Are you hard working at home or in your office or the Church? What commendations do you receive for your hard work? If someone does not work hard, will he or she succeed in life; definitely not. Hard work pays. Hard work brings good success, especially for the believer. Begin to work hard today and God will bless your efforts!

    MEDITATION:

    “Go to the ant, thou sluggard; consider her ways and be wise (Proverbs 6:6)

    PRAYER POINTS:

    1. Pray that the Lord  will deliver you from the spirit of laziness

    2.  Pray that the Holy Spirit will help you to be wise

    3. Pray about today and any other issue(s) as it affects your productivity

    RUTH: AN EXAMPLE OF COMMITMENT

    Ruth 1:16-17

    Elimelech moved his family from Bethlehem to the land of Moab because there was famine in the land. His two sons Mahlon and Chilion got married to Orpah and Ruth respectively. These two young men died under mysterious circumstances.  Of course, premature death is neither your portion nor members of your family. You will fulfill your years in this world and achieve the purpose of God in your life, like Ruth.

    In our text today, we found how Ruth re-assured Naomi to be with her until death do them part. She even denied her gods and accepted the God of the Hebrews, who Naomi served.

    Though Orpah accepted going back to her parents, Ruth glued to Naomi (her mother-in-law) despite Naomi's insistence for her to go back, like Orpah did. Ruth vowed to even die with Naomi and be buried where she will be buried. What a commitment! Are you committed to God? Are you prepared to follow Christ to the end? Be like Ruth in your determination to walk with the Lord.

    MEDITATION:

    "But he that endureth to the end, the same shall be saved (Matthew 24:13)

    PRAYER POINTS:

    1. Thank God for saving you

    2. Ask for grace to be committed in your walk with the Lord

    3. Pray against premature death over your life and family
