I will show you the Secret to becoming a friend of God.
It is more than fasting, prayer, Bible study.
It is coming to a point in your life where you’re willing to lose anything and everything and yet your passion for Him is unchanged.
It is coming to a point in your life when you are willing to remain with him regardless of what.
Thank you because the job comes but if it never comes, leaving you is not an option.
Thank you because I know you will heal my body but even if I die, the last words that will come from me will be you are faithful.
Our generation is full of interests.
There is hardly the purity of selflessness. Our pursuits have been corrupted by the versatility of lusts tied to it.
What is in it for me?
This is the language of our generation.
What do I stand to gain?
Show me my cut first. And so we carry this bargaining mindset to God. Lord, I want to serve you but first, am I going to shine? If yes, more than who? Mention the people that will clap for me if I serve you because there are people I need to prove a point to.
Sell all you have.
This is by no means promoting the life of mediocrity
Take away from yourself.
Be dissociated from it.
Don’t go and store it.
Every time a man in the Bible built a monument and secured it for himself, God called him a fool. Don’t get me wrong.
God is a giver. The giving of God cannot all be received by any man. God is not a fool. He is the fountain of wisdom. God must vet the purity of your motives regardless of the accuracy of your activities.
Can He trust you?
