ALL THAT GLITTERS IS NOT GOLD – Pastor E.A Adeboye

ALL THAT GLITTERS IS NOT GOLD – Pastor E.A Adeboye

There was this hawk that do flew around my compound, one day, I looked at this bird and saw that it will be good for food, so I took a step and set trap with attractive meat on it. Not long after, the hawk was passing by and saw the food and it looked at it also that it would be good for food. At this time, two things happened:

1. I SAW THE HAWK THAT IT WILL BE GOOD FOR FOOD

2. THE HAWK SAW THE MEAT ON THE TRAP THAT IT WILL BE GOOD FOR FOOD.

I was eager to roast the bird while the bird was eager to get the meat into its stomach.

The hawk moved round the trap several times but wouldn’t just get trapped because it was very smart and wise type of bird. It checked the environment first to know if there are dangers around, and it also checked why the meat was on a fabricated iron and not on the earth, it did this for about an hour and later flew to another part and started feeding on other crumps. At this time I perceived in my spirit to re-strategies and covered the trap with dry grass, exposing only the meat. After few minutes, it came back, examined the environment felt comfortable because the iron part of the trap was not seen anymore but the meat on the front part of the trap only, so it landed on the meat  and got trapped.

There are lessons I want us to lean from this story:

1. DON’T RUSH INTO TAKING DECISION WITHOUT STRONG CONFIRMATION FROM GOD.

2. ALL THAT GLITTER IS NOT GOLD

3. NEVER TAKE A STEP IN LIFE WITHOUT FIRST ASKING GOD IF IT IS HIS WILL FOR YOU.

4. BE CONTENTED WITH WHAT YOU HAVE.

5. DON’T BELIEVE IN YOUR SMARTNESS OR TECHNICAL KNOW-HOW OR SKILLS.

6. DON’T BE CARRIED AWAY WITH WHAT YOU SEE.

The world is full of evil and many people  are after their own desire even at the detriment of others. We are leaving among “WOLVES IN SHEEP CLOTHING”. Your best friend can turn to be your enemy in the next few minutes all because of personal gain, fame, riches and popularities.

We are in the world where a brother uses his on brother or sister, friends, family members etc, for rituals

The world where a brother goes to a herbalist to interchange destinies if he feels that his junior ones will be greater than him and vise-versal.  

The hawk in the above story was moving around, looking for its daily food while its enemy had planned on how it will turn to food for him.

I PRAY IN THE NAME THAT IS ABOVE ALL OTHER NAMES, MAY YOU NOT TURN TO FOOD FOR YOUR ENEMIES IN JESUS NAME.

The bird was actually smart, wise, but it still fell into its enemy’s trap. A lot of people had been trapped by the enemy because they believed they can do it alone, they believed in their acquired education, skills and wise experiences, they neglected God in their doings and they ended up as food for their enemy.

A lot of people had been killed, kidnapped, raped because they believed in their own ability, despite that they were innocent. An attractive vacancy, job opportunity and go in with your application is not a bad idea but did you ask God if that job is His will for your life? It is not every job that you see that is meant for you, some people applied innocently but little do they know that the employer is looking for somebody to renew his or her vow with Satan.

I PRAY YOU WILL NEVER BE A VICTIM OF EVIL PLANS IN JESUS NAME.

Because he is your brother, sister, friend or neighbor etc does not mean the fellow can’t harm you.

(Matthew 3:1-4) says” BUT KNOW THIS THAT IN THE LAST DAYS PERILOUS TIMES WILL COME: FOR MEN WILL BE LOVERS OF THEMSELVES, LOVERS OF MONEY, BOASTERS, PROUD, BLASPHEMERS,DISOBEDIENT TO PARENTS UNTHANKFUL UNHOLY,LOVERS OF PLEASURE RATHER THAN LOVERS OF GOD…..”.

Don’t be carried away when that friend of yours whom you have not seen for some times show up suddenly with year 2022 Lexus Jeep and you change your prayer point to God please help me too no matter what, I must make it.

You don’t know the source of that car or what your friend is into.

(Proverb 16:9) says”A man’s heart plans his way But the Lord direct his step.

HOW MUCH BETTER TO GET WISDOM THAN GOLD AND TO GET UNDERSTANDING IS TO BE CHOSEN RATHER THAN SILVERl”.

(Proverb 16:25)”There is a way that seems right to a man But its end is the way of death”.

If you rushed into something, you will rush out or not even be able to get out of it.

Be contented with what you have and ask God to bless you with a greater blessing and wait patiently on Him.

BETTER IS A DRY MORSEL WITH QUIETNESS THAN A HOUSE FULL OF FEASTING WITH STRIFE.

The hawk in the story try its best, but when I re- strategies, it got trapped.

You see people running away or talking bad about an organization, individual, group, job etc and you eventually got opportunity in the same place and you said it is not their luck but yours, that enemy might have strategies and you end up as pray.

We need God in our day to day activities. hold on to God, let Him be your adviser, companion. Seek His advice first before taking decision. Ensure you fast and pray before you take any gift, opportunity, job, position etc.

Let Jesus Christ be the first and the last in your life, with Him, you can’t be a pray to your enemy because He will guide you, protect you and see you through to your destination.

I PRAY THAT WHATEVER EVIL PLANS YOUR ENEMY HAD PREPARED FOR YOU AND YOUR FAMILY WILL TURN AGAINT THEM AND TURN TO YOUR OWN FAVOR IN JESUS NAME

Amen.
