But God said to him, you fool! This very night your soul is required of you; and now who will own what you have prepared? So is the man who stores up treasure for himself, and is not rich toward God (Luke 12:20 -New American Standard Bible). Jesus’ instructions to His disciples then and now wherever our treasure is, that is where our hearts will be. Beware of where your heart is, there is a space in our hearts reserved for God, and Him only; when we place people and things in His reserved area, we have made them idols and gods. God has instructed His people to have no other god before Him. How can a Christian have a connection with the Father when he or she doesn’t have a time of prayer. We have time to do everything concerning to the natural things, but when it comes to spiritual things, we don’t make the time. To be a successful Christians, we must spend time in prayer,; we should have daily prayer, a time set aside to spend in God’s presence. We need to study the Bible and not just read it, we need days we set aside to fast, to bring our flesh under subjection.
If we spend as much time seeking to please God, as we do in seeking to make more money, more education, larger houses and so forth, the body of Christ would be more powerful and would be in unity, the power of God would be moving in us and through us. God just don’t allow His Spirit to rest upon us without sacrificing. We have conferences after conferences to build the body of Christ up, but after the conference there hasn’t really been a spiritual change corporately or individually. It’s going to take more than a conference for us to begin to walk in the manifestation of the power of God. Jesus is on His way back, and the body of Christ needs to get busy winning souls. There are people who will never enter a church unless someone minister and guide them to one. If we’re always thinking about getting more for us and not using what has already been poured into us, Sunday after Sunday, weekday service; another conference isn’t going to get the job done.
We are the sons of God, and we should be walking epistles, read by men. There is power in God we have not touched; and we cannot get it without commitment in prayer, fasting, reading and studying the Bible and living according to the Bible instructions. We should be focusing on how to win a soul, praying for God to manifest Himself through us to a dying world. Each of us are accountable for what we do as Christians, are we focusing on the world and how to get more stuff, or are we preparing ourselves to be vessels, God can use anytime, anywhere and any place? Are we preparing ourselves so the anointing can rest in our lives to bless others or are we too busy doing everything that points to the world and nothing for God!Read More
