THE CHOSEN DEVOTIONAL GUIDEDATE: MON, 8TH JUNE 2015.
THEME: THE WAY TO GREATNESS
TEXT: 2 Chronicles 26:4-5
4 And he did that which was right in the sight of the Lord, according to all that his father Amaziah did.
5 And he sought God in the days of Zechariah, who had understanding in the visions of God:and as long as he sought the Lord, God made him to prosper.
So Jotham became mighty, because he prepared his ways before the Lord his God. 2 Chronicles 27:6
Greatness is attained through hard-work and dependence on God’s directives and blessings. No one attains greatness without God helping him by blessing and crowning the person's efforts with success.
For God to crown a person's effort with success and make him or her great the person must recognize God and do what will please God Almighty.
In the text above, God made King Uzziah to prosper because he did what was right in His sight. He became the King of Judah at the age of 16 years, he followed the foot-steps of his father Amaziah and Sis what was right in the sight of God.
If you want to be great in life you have to acknowledge that greatness comes from God. Humble yourself in the way of the Lord. Make evangelism your stock in trade. Do it on regular basis and win souls for the kingdom of God.
Ensure that you do not embark on any project without committing it into the hand of God. Embark on project that will give glory to God.
Through these, God will make you great in Jesus name.
* Pray that God will teach you the way of greatness.
* Pray that God will bless your effort at all times.
AMEND YOUR WAYS:
If you are not born again you must do something as a matter of urgency. He that commits sin is of the devil (1 John 3:8).
If you are into lying, cheating, bitterness, keeping malice, pride, manifesting anger, quarreling, unforgiveness, hatred, envy, contention, strife, gossiping, taking or giving bribe, selfishness,
kidnapping. If you are into masturbation, fornication, adultery, prostitution, abortion, lesbianism, homosexuality, you need to repent.
Are you into idolatry, do you make or use charms, rituals, bow down to images, Are you into occultism?
Do you smoke cigarette, cocaine, heroine? Are you lusting, covetous, alcohol drinking, divorcee or into worldliness?, you must stop bleaching your body, or painting your lips, eyes, fixing attachments, weave-on, earrings (Gen 35:2-4)
Are you one of those that put on nude dresses, short skirts, transparent dresses to seduce
(A seducer is not a Christian) do you wear trouser as a woman?
Repent and give your life to Jesus Christ.
If you want to give your life to JESUS pray this short prayer with me:
Almighty God, I come unto you in the name of Jesus. Father I confess that I am a sinner. All my sins I confess to you. I am very sorry for all my sins.
Lord I promise you that from today I will never continue in them anymore.
I believe that Jesus Christ died and rose again on the third day for my justification. Almighty God, use the blood of Jesus to wash my sins away. Lord Jesus, come into my heart, be my Lord and Personal Savior.
I surrender my life to you.
Cancel my name from the book of death and give me grace to make Heaven. AMEN!
