Daily Fountain 2017 - Be A Doer Of The Word Of God









Friday March 3



Bible Reading:     James 1: 16 - 27



Topic:         Be A Doer Of The Word Of God



Obedience is key in our walk with God.



It significantly affects how God relates with us as individuals, groups or even generation.



James reiterates this point inverses 22 - 25.



The warning is that we should not expect blessing from God when we live in disobedience to His Word.



When we disobey God, we make a mockery of His Kingdom and turn Him into an object of no consequence.



Adam and Eve disobeyed God and forfeited their covering of  glory (Gen. 2: 11); the Israelites committed harlotry with the daughters of Moab and 24, 000 people lost their lives due to God's Righteous Anger (Num. 25: 1-9); Ananias and Sapphira lied to the Holy Spirit but did not live to tell the story of their calamity (Acts 5: 1-10) e.t.c.



Anyone who dishonours the Lord by disobeying Him shall not go unpunished but those who worship Him in obedience shall enjoy His Fatherly Presence and Benevolence (1 Sam. 2: 30)



As you seek to hear what the Lord has to tell you this day, pray also for grace to obey Him completely without any reservation.



Prayer:

Dear Lord, give me the courage I require to stand for the truth and act according to Your Will so that my life will show Your Beauty in all I do, in Jesus Name, Amen.



Memory verse:   James 1: 17

"Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and cometh down from the Father of Lights with Whom is no variableness, neither shadow of turning"
