TOPIC: You Shall Give Account (Mountain Of Fire And Miracle Ministries Wednesday, 5 September 2018)
FIRE SCRIPTURE: Ecclesiastes 12:1-9, 13-14
MEMORY VERSE: “So then every one of us shall give account of himself to God.” – Romans 14:12
It is certain that everything we do on this planet shall come to a close one day. Man may talk about secret sins but this is mere self-deception, as there is nothing secret before God. When God put Adam in the Garden of Eden, He spelt out responsibility, accountability, offences and penalties so that the relationship would not be based on assumptions. For as long as Adam operated within the terms spelt out, everything was well with Him. But the day he stepped out of his boundary, God did not retain him in the Garden even though it was His divine agenda to have man keep and dress the Garden. Many people take God for granted even though they are fully aware of the consequences and penalties of committing sin. God has a purpose for everything He puts in our care, and we must diligently operate within the terms set by Him. God is not in the business of wasting time, talents, resources, anointing, and position. Whatever is put to your care shall be required of you on the Day of Judgement when the books of your activities shall be opened and read before all. You must fear God as you utilise anything He has put in your care. How you handle it determines the reward you get from Him.
God has not given you talents to be idle like the unprofitable servant. He has not given you position for the purpose of oppressing others like Haman. He has not anointed you to plague those who offend you with curses. He has not given you a tongue to gossip but to praise Him. He has not given you eyes to lust after ungodly things. He has not given you wealth and influence to acquire strange women like Solomon. He has not given you strength and power to mismanage like Samson. He has not given you mouth to speak unholy words but to preach the gospel. He has not given you hands to steal church money but to bless the poor with whatever you can afford. He has not given you good education to use in publishing anti-gospel materials but to contribute positively to the enlightenment of the world with scriptural materials. Moses was trained as a shepherd in preparation for leading the Israelites out of Egypt. Peter was a skillful fisherman in preparation for aggressive soul winning. Paul engaged his educational training as a lawyer, religious training as a Pharisee, and undaunted zeal as a persecutor of Christians to make remarkable marks in evangelism, church planting, follow up of converts, and mentoring of Christian leaders. David’s skill in playing musical instrument to calm king Saul down from the torments of evil spirit was later deployed in praising and worshipping God which earned him the reputation of the great Psalmist.
God did not spare Lucifer who misused his anointing and position but cast him down from heaven. He did not spare the rich fool who refused to help poor Lazarus but condemned him to hell-fire. He did not spare the children of Eli who used their position to defile the temple but handed the judgement of death upon them. He did not spare David when he killed Uriah and took his wife but issued everlasting decree of raging sword upon his seed. These are few instances of the judgement of God upon those who misused what He put in their care. You must take heed today and be conscious that whatever you do, you shall surely give account on the Day of Judgement.
GOD IS THE BEST MANAGER OF RESOURCES. HE DOES NOT LIKE HIS CHILDREN WASTING TIME, TALENTS, ANOINTING AND POSITION.
May you use all that God has given you to praise and glorify His name.
1. Teach me to number my days O Lord, in the name of Jesus.
2. Spirit of obedience, baptise my life, in the name of Jesus.
3. I refuse to use my spiritual gifts against God, in the name of Jesus.
4. I shall not fall into the errors and snares of the devil, in the name of Jesus.
5. I shall not be demoted but my enemies shall be demoted, in the name of Jesus.
6. I shall not waste my divine calling and ministry, in the name of Jesus.
7. O Lord, give me the wisdom to do Your will always, in the name of Jesus.
