Do you know that God’s word is so simple? It is so simple that you need the “help” of someone to get it complicated.
Do you also know that the things God wants us to do are fewer than what the devil throws our way? That is why Yahushua Mashiach / Christ said
28 Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. 29 Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart:and ye shall find rest unto your souls. 30 For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light (Matthew 11:28-30 KJV)
This morning, I want to remind you about a few habits to inculcate as the New Year approaches.
These spiritual habits will guide you in God’s paths. These spiritual habits will guarantee that you won’t fall into the hands of a wrong man, evil man, wicked man, and a strange woman. If you are in doubt about that, read Proverbs 2. These spiritual habits will make you grow faster in the things of God. It will help you to hear God’s voice clearly! When you do these five things, it is like you are sowing into the things of the Spirit.
What are these habits?
1. Read God’s word daily
Yes, it is so simple. But you see, it is so simple that so many people still don’t do it! Maybe you would have taken more note of that if God had complicated it by saying before you can open the Bible to read, you have to take your bath, sacrifice a goat, and then pass through a certain river! But God says His yoke is easy and His burden is light! God wants the reading of His word to be a lifestyle, not some rigour! Make up your mind in the coming year to read His word regularly!
2. Pray in the Spirit daily
Pray in the Spirit daily! 30 minutes a day, an hour a day, two hours a day, just do it with some consistency! The greatest times to pray are those times you don’t feel like praying! You need to discipline yourself, if speaking in tongues lulls you to sleep. But when you are watching, Jackie Chan, your eyes are wide-open! You don’t need deliverance, you only need to stand up and walk around and not lie down on your bed during prayer time. The truth is that as short as thirty minutes of firing up your Spirit and communicating directly with God seems, it will add up massively in a whole year to something gargantuan!
3. Touch a life daily
Life is not about being concerned about you, yourself and nobody else. Life is about making somebody happy. I am not talking about making somebody happy at the expense of God, like sleeping with someone outside marriage to make him or her happy! That is not touching a life, but destroying lives!
I am talking about solving a problem daily and making someone happy! It is a law of life that what you make happen for others, God will make happen for you!
4. Give daily
These does not mean it is offering time everyday, but you know there is a way you can give everyday, even if it just a chocolate for a little child that hasn’t tasted one in the last 355 days! God wants you to be a channel, not a dam! God wants you to be distributor, not a reservoir! Think of pipe supplying water. Does the pipe itself remain dry? No! That’s the picture. When you understand giving, you will never lack in 2015!
5. Thank God daily
Finally, thank God daily. Nothing is as powerful as that! But I am still single, just thank God. But I am still waiting. Just thank God. But this, but that…just keep thanking God!
I pray that in 2015, God will honour you as you honour Him in Yahushua’ name.
