THE CHOSEN DAILY DEVOTIONAL...
DATE: SATURDAY 18TH JUNE, 2016
THEME: ALL THAT GLITTERS
TEXT: Hosea 4:6, Psalm 119:105
4:6 My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge: because thou hast rejected knowledge, I will also reject thee, that thou shalt be no priest to me: seeing thou hast forgotten the law of thy God, I will also forget thy children.
119:105 Thy word is a lamp unto my feet, and a light unto my path.
MEMORY VERSE: "For they prophesy a lie unto you, to remove you far from your land; and that I should drive you out, and ye should perish." (Jeremiah 27:10)
There are many things that glitter, but they are not always gold though they look like they are. You must be very watchful so that a piece of iron is not sold for you in the place of gold.
A woman visited a supposed place of vision and prophecy and was given the message that a particular member of her family was responsible for all the difficulties and hardships she was passing through. In addition. she was told that the person would die by the end of that month. At the end of the vision and prophecy, she parted with forty thousand naira.
The end of the month came and passed without anyone dying in the said family. The bible takes into cognizance the activities of such prophets and prophetesses and warns, "They prophesy lies unto you." So, you must be careful about the places you visit in search of visions and prophecies and quick solutions to problems. All that glitters is not gold. Depend upon the power that is in the word of God, abide by it, do the will of God and it shall be well
Sing a few praise/worship songs. Make a thanksgiving prayer and ask God for mercies and the forgiveness of sins. Thereafter, take the following prayer points.
1. Any lyIng spirit assigned to speak against my life, catch fire, in Jesus' name.
2. Any evil altar speaking against my life/destiny, keep silent, in Jesus' name.
3. Any power on assignment to remove me from my land and blessing, receive destruction, in Jesus' Name.
