So get rid of everything evil in your lives—every kind of wrong you do. Be humble and accept God’s teaching that is planted in your hearts. This teaching can save you. James 1:21 ERV

http://bible.com/406/jas.1.21.ERV

Medically a person’s heart condition spells his physical health condition. Our text reveals heart condition also defines spiritual health.

Beloved, what fills the heart determines what it’ll produce, because your heart controls your life. Heart, when filled with filthiness and wickedness, life will be full of evil and every kind of wickedness, because the Word of God cannot be received in such heart. Unless the Word is received and planted in your heart, you cannot experience any form of salvation, because you cannot have faith in God. Faith in God and His Word is the only condition for salvation, and this faith can only be found in the heart. The Word cannot be received and planted in your heart unless you repent, get rid of unbelief, everything evil and every kind of wrong you do from your heart! Your heart condition determines your salvation!

Absalom did this to all the Israelites who came to the king for a settlement. So Absalom stole the hearts of the men of Israel. 2 Samuel 15:6 HCSB

http://bible.com/72/2sa.15.6.HCSB

What will be your reaction if someone says “Stop Stealing!” ? Our text reveals Absalom stealing, hearts, love and loyalty.

Beloved, God is so interested in equity that He gave the command: “Thou shalt not sin”. Spending what you’re not supposed to or sparring what you’re supposed to, whether owned by you or others is stealing – Matthew Henry. Whatever you do that denies others their fair share of the goodies of life, giving you more than your fair share of it, is stealing! In other words putting others in a disadvantaged position to your own advantage is stealing, irrespective of the act that brought this advantage! Does the above perspectives of stealing give you any new revelation? Do you think you’re stealing anything, socially, maritally, spiritually or otherwise? Do you think repenting is expedient?

But Amnon had a very crafty friend—his cousin Jonadab. He was the son of David’s brother Shimea. 2 Samuel 13:3 NLT

http://bible.com/116/2sa.13.3.NLT

No normal person exists without a friend, but friends can make or mare a person. Our text reveals this in Absalom’s life.

Beloved, the kind of person you’re is spelt by the kind of friends you have and keep. Good friends enable you accomplish good things which are pleasing to God. Bad, crafty and unfriendly friends propel you to accomplish bad things that leads you away from God, which they may not be able to do themselves and ordinarily you wouldn’t. A friend contributes in no small measure what you’ll do or not do as well as who you’re, therefore great caution must be exercised in choosing them. Crafty friends are everywhere, – marriage, church, school, workplace, family. Any friend not drawing you closer God is a crafty and unfriendly friend and you ought to let go of such, before he ruins your destiny!

Then Jesus answered her, “O woman, great is your faith. Let it be done for you as you desire.” And her daughter was healed instantly. Matthew 15:28 MEV

http://bible.com/1171/mat.15.28.MEV

Great Faith is the medium of exchanging great heavenly blessings for earthly possession amidst oppositions. Our text reveals this in the Sidonian woman.

Beloved, great faith is not measured by size but by accomplishment, while accomplishment is the price of a dogged desire and determination not to fail based on the Word. A great faith is birthed by challenges, limitations, obstacles and oppositions, but driven by a dogged desire to transform them into pedestals and springboards on the premise of the Word. Every delay, obstacle, limitation and opposition you encounter is not real, because Jesus took them away at His death; Only your determination not to be limited by them will transform them into an experience and exchange your earthly possession for heavenly blessings!

“I will put the key to David’s house around his neck. If he opens a door, no one will be able to close it. If he closes a door, no one will be able to open it. Isaiah 22:22 ERV

http://bible.com/406/isa.22.22.ERV

Proverbs says a diligent and faithful man shall stand before Kings, [be honored and conferred with authority] (22:29). Our text reveals this in Eliakim.

Beloved, you don’t need to be recognized and respected by men, you don’t need to be regarded as a big and strong man or as one that have arrived and made it. You don’t even need to be seen exercising authority. All these may be good but not really important. What’s important is God’s honor. Every family, city, organisation, institution, or nation has a gate and key; The custodian of the key is the custodian of the greatest authority in it. Diligence and faithfulness attract God’s honor with the conferment of authority. Whoever God honors He gives the territorial key and whoever has the key, is the ruler, but until it’s used, the key is useless. Jesus has given you the key, whatever you let in or not will be so!

PRAYERS: Lord I’ll be diligent and faithful in whatever you entrusted to me. I receive and put to use the key of wherever You’ve placed me.

THE SEED! READ: LUKE 8:4-15

“Now the parable means this: The seed is the word of God.”
Luke 8:11[MEV]

The seed is that product of a plant that produces another plant. Invariably it’s a plant but doesn’t look like one. Our text reveals the Word is the seed, which implies the seed is also the Word.

Beloved, the world was created through the seed of the Word which God sowed by speaking and believing the Word. His desired world was created by the Word. Whoever has the seed has the plant, although it may not appear like one, and whoever has the plant has the fruit. The Word is the seed of whatever that’s needed in or around your life. It’s able to accomplish whatsoever you desire. It births, heals and transforms life, circumstances and situations. Once sown, under the right conditions, it must bear fruit. Amazingly, this seed of the Word has been provided, therefore all you need do is to sow it in the right condition by receiving, believing, obeying and applying it to your situation and you’ll have what it says you’ll have!

PRAYERS: Lord, show me the seed you’ve provided for every situation I’m facing today or will face. I receive grace to believe and sow this seed to my situation in the right condition!

There was a sinful woman in that town. She knew that Jesus was eating at the Pharisee’s house. So the woman brought some expensive perfume in an alabaster jar. She stood at Jesus’ feet, crying. Then she began to wash his feet with her tears. She dried his feet with her hair. She kissed his feet many times and rubbed them with the perfume. Luke 7:37‭-‬38 ERV

http://bible.com/406/luk.7.37-38.ERV

Every economy has a legal tender. Our text reveals that faith, the divine economy’s legal tender is powered by knowledge.

Beloved, your salvation depends on your action, your action depends on your faith, your faith depends on your knowledge, your knowledge depends on your hearing. Whatever you don’t hear of, you cannot know, whatever you don’t know, you cannot believe, whatever you don’t believe you cannot act on, whatever you don’t act on, you can’t experience. The sinful woman heard, learned, believed, acted on and experienced the salvation she so much needed from the Lord. Similarly today, whatever you need you can have, if you’ll hear, believe and act on the Word of God!

PRAYERS: Lord Jesus, help me hear, learn and believe everything I need in your Word for my salvation. I make myself available as a channel to help others hear, learn and believe everything they need for their salvation.

The Lord has made everything for his own purposes, even the wicked for a day of disaster. Proverbs 16:4 NLT

http://bible.com/116/pro.16.4.NLT

Everything God made fulfills one desire, intention, plan and pleasure of His or another. Our text reveals even the wicked is useful to Him.

Beloved, there’s nothing created by God that’s useless, similarly no situation is useless to Him. Whatever that happens on earth, meets one of His desires and purposes or another, whether classified good or bad by man. The apostle Paul puts it this way “all things works together for good to those who love God”, St John said “all things are and were created for God’s pleasure”. Don’t worry about the wicked, he’s just an instrument in God’s hands for your good. There’s therefore only one way to ensure the best of life, it’s circumstances, chances and changes, – total submission and obedience to life’s Designer and Maker – God. Total submission is only possible through faith which makes every struggling to cease!

“Master,” Simon replied, “we’ve worked hard all night long and caught nothing! But at Your word, I’ll let down the nets.” Luke 5:5 HCSB

http://bible.com/72/luk.5.5.HCSB

Yesterday, we established “because” or “but” as a game changer. Our text reveals this being demonstrated in Peter’s life.

Beloved, because obedience is obedience whether forced or voluntary, and God is faithful, in Him there’s no shadow of variableness, He cannot help but honor every obedience to His Word. Peter’s obedience here was compelled – “I’m a very seasoned fisherman, there’s no reason to let down the nets at this time of the day, because we’ll catch nothing, but at Your word ….” Every obedience whether forced or voluntary cannot be devoid of faith, though the faith may not be overt. This explains why every obedience to the Word, always attract God’s blessings. No matter how difficult it may seem, always find a “because” or “but” to obey His Word and experience your impossibility turn to possibility!

And the king was sorry, but because of his oaths and his guests he commanded it to be given. Matthew 14:9 ESV

http://bible.com/59/mat.14.9.ESV

Excuses are reasons and arguments against or for, which “because” or “but” usually introduce in a sentence. Our text reveals Herod and his “because”.

Beloved, “because” is a game changer which have ruined a lot of people than it has preserved. A man’s “because” determines his action(s). Since every man’s way is always right to him, whatever negativity you set your heart to do, the devil will very easily help you find a “because” or an excuse for. Many today very easily find a “because” to disobey God like Herod. The challenge however is, whether your excuse is excusable before God or not? Whatever “because” that contradicts the Word of God, is found wanting in His scale. Whatever is found wanting in His scale can’t be justified by Him. Whatever that’s not justified by Him, spells woe and doom! What does your “because” weigh in God’s balance?
