Lord, what wilt thou have me do?”

  • Apostle Paul (Acts 9:6 KJV)

In the just concluded WAFBEC, pastor Poju Oyemade concluded on a powerful note. He talked about seeking God’s face on what He would have us do per time.

It is much easier to desire something and take it to the LORD to make such desires come to pass. Sometimes we’ll even pray and fast for God to bless such.

However, that is what many other religions do. They ‘use’ their god to get what they want. They think by their piety, zealousness and constant worship of their gods, their gods will be pleased and grant their desires. Unfortunately, even this way of thinking has been transferred to Christendom and we believe that we are Christians to get what we want from God.

Christianity is not for us to get what you ‘want’ from God, it is for us to be conformed to the person of Christ. This conformance comes as we study and meditate on God’s word, by the Holy Spirit’s leading and by prayers. Those are the ways to know the will of the Father.

Don’t get me wrong. The LORD is very much interested in our desires and will grant them according to His will. When Jesus was on earth, He went about doing good. He healed, delivered, performed miracles and gave provision. God wants the good of every man but He wants us to seek His will above all else.

Jesus said “seek the kingdom of God and all its righteousness and all other things will be added unto you” (Matthew 6:33). We are Christians: Christ followers. We are to seek to know the will of God at all times concerning every area of our lives.

It’s true that God’s will is contained in His word; nevertheless, there’s much beauty and strength that comes with God making His will known to you as He illuminates the word in your heart. This is what a Christian should seek after.

Has God led or called you to do what you’re doing? Instead of crying out for God’s mighty blessings on it, why don’t you pray to know if that’s what He’ll have you do.

As many as are led by Spirit, they are the sons of God (Romans 8:14). This is what differentiates us from other religions. We are to be led by the Spirit. He is to instruct us on how we should live and act. We are not to God to get what we want. We are His vessels in whom He has put treasures and even when using these treasurers, remember that it is to the glory of the Father. The LORD will surely reward.

For we have these treasurers in earthen vessels to show that this all surpassing power is from God and not from us (2 Corinthians 4:7).

May the LORD strengthen us to seek His will above all else in Jesus name. Amen.

Where do you seek answers?

This sounds cliche right? but isn’t it important that we examine what influences the decisions we make in this age and time. One of the most frustrating points to find yourself in is having the need for answers and not knowing where to find them or not be willing to pay the price to find these answers.

In such moments, many have sought answers in the wrong places that have cost them their lives and glorious destiny or even their loved ones.

Let’s examine scriptures, the book of Isaiah 8:19 addresses this and gives and answer to where to find answers, So why are you trying to find out the future by consulting witches and mediums? Don’t listen to their whisperings and mutterings. Can the living find out the future from the dead? Why not ask your God? Isaiah 8:19 (TLB)

This scripture gives us an answer of where to find answers in a day and age where everyone seeks answer on the media which is good if they are contents that edify your spirit man but the media should never be the first option. In God’s presence we get answers of peace to every troubling questions that life asks you.

We must bear in mind that Jesus gives the answers that we seek to questions that life asks us, to issues that challenges our faith and makes us feel like giving up. Herbalists, fortune tellers, drugs and what have you do not give us an answer of peace, whatever chills it gives is only temporary and bound to make one feel depressed.

This week and always, receive wisdom to seek the answers right in His presence. We challenge you to ask God! Stay in prayer! Stay in the Word!

The Lord grant you an answer of peace as You seek Him for answers in the name of Jesus.

We invite you to journey with the Lord Jesus as you ask Him to take rest in your heart by saying this prayer;

Dearest Jesus I thank you for your death, burial and resurrection, you did all of this for me. I know I have lived my life without you in it but today I surrender all to you, forgive my sins and take over my life. Thank You for Your LOVE towards me Jesus. In Jesus name. Welcome to God’s family!
