TOPIC : GOD’S PRINCIPAL DEMAND ON HIS CHILDREN
Tuesday, 03 July 2018
SCRIPTURE: My son, give me thine heart, and let thine eyes observe my ways. Proverbs 23:26.
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: Anyone or anything that has your heart has your life.
It is God’s delight to see His children seek after Him with the whole of their hearts. Many people think that when we appear before God in church to worship Him, the first thing God wants from our lives is our money or offering. Others think that God is a task-master who is always making unnecessary demands on His people. That is not true! To clear this misconception, there is a need to understand God’s principal demand on our lives.
Now, what does God want from your life?
Our anchor Scripture reveals that what God wants from our lives is our heart; He wants to own your heart and your life. God wants you to make Him the topmost priority of your life. To succeed with God on earth and in eternity, your life must revolve around Him.
Unfortunately, today, there are many people who set other things as priority over God in their lives, and then God becomes secondary; they give their hearts to the pursuit of money, alcoholism, tobacco, sports, drug addiction and immorality. That is not right.
Beloved, anyone or anything that has your heart has your life. When Samson gave his heart to Delilah, she took his life. A man who gives his heart to alcohol or to cocaine addiction, risks being ruined by that alcohol or cocaine addiction.
Beloved, what is the centre of your life? Can you confidently say that God is the centre of your life by the way you live?
My counsel is, decide to make God the Centre of your life today. This is what He requires of your life.
Remember this: Anyone or anything that has your heart has your life.
1. Read today’s message again.
2. Give God your heart completely and make Him the Centre of your life.
PRAYER: O Lord, I relinquish the ownership of my heart and life to You. I ask that You become the Centre of my life, Lord, in Jesus’ Name.
