(MORNING) YOU ARE CALLED!
Isaiah 61:6 And you will be priests of the LORD, you will be named ministers of our God. You will feed on the wealth of the nations, and in their riches you will boast.
I bring you greetings from the throne of heaven. God has helped us to bring a message of information and remainder, that you have been called as a priest.
A priest is a spiritual leader authorized to perform the sacred ritual of religion. Especially as a mediatory agent between humans and God.
*A man set apart and consecrated to serve God.
*He intercedes for people and offers worship on behalf of man to God.
*He brings God and his grace to the people through the holy spirit.
*He acts on the person of Christ here on earth.
- He is to be a Christ-like example at all times, bringing God’s love to all people.
We are not called to be a priest but a royal priest. That is, a kingly priest, Noble and unique priest.
1 peter 2:9, But you are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, His own special people, that you may proclaim the praise of Him who called you out of darkness into marvellous light.
Arise, take up it priestly garment and position to dictate was happens in your family and environment. It is a called of responsibility and sacrifice.
Eph.4:1 As a prisoner of the Lord, then I urge you to live a life worthy of the calling you have received.
Confession: I am a royal priesthood, from the family of royalty, Christ, I will stand in my priesthood position and I will never be weary.
(EVENING) DEALING WITH THE SERPENT.
Revelation 12:14, And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the devil, and Satan, which decieveth the whole world.
Hallelujah!! Praise God!! I am excited in my spirit because God shall bring deliverance today.
The serpent that appears to the woman in Genesis metamorphosed to a dragon in the book of revelation because it wasn’t dealt on.
HOW TO DEALING WITH SERPENT:
FLEE: 2 Tim.2:22a Flee also youthful Lust. Flee means run, and Lust is the desire to have what you are not entitled to. It does not necessarily mean sexual Lust but in all round. Lust is as a result of wrong desire. Money rituals, yahoo-yahoo, gambling, greed, killing, sexual immorality, pornography etc is as a result of wrong desire.
A good run is better than a bad Fall. A young preacher once said he took running from temptation so seriously that when he was tempted so sexually, he would go for a literal run around the track. Flee will help you to be free.
RESIST THE DEVIL.
We are like a gatekeeper over our minds. We can’t always help what present itself to us, what comes up to the gate- but we don’t have to let everything to entertaining it. Resist all serpentine thought, through prayers. Blast in tongues and rebuke the devil and he will flee from you(James 4:7)
PRESENT OURSELVES TO GOD.
Do not present your ears and eyes to impurities and gossips. Don’t present your member to sexual sin. Don’t present your month to grumbling and complaining but offer your lips to God in songs. Present your hand and feet by serving God. Give your mouth by encouraging a brother or sister.
What makes a pig, a pig is a pig in it. Only when you present yourself to God, then shall He pick out the pigs in us. (Roman12:1).
REMEMBER IN EVERY LITTLE COMPROMISE LEADS TO BIG SINS.
Father, we thank you for everyone reading this devotional, father I pray you to help us, for we can’t help ourselves. Grant grace to overcome and prevail unto to the last. We shall finish strong and make heaven in Jesus name. Amen.
