TEXT: ECCLESIASTES 5:1-6
Keep thy foot when thou goest to the house of God, and be more ready to hear, than to give the sacrifice of fools: for they consider not that they do evil. Be not rash with thy mouth, and let not thine heart be hasty to utter any thing before God: for God is in heaven, and thou upon earth: therefore let thy words be few. For a dream cometh through the multitude of business; and a fool's voice is known by multitude of words. When thou vowest a vow unto God, defer not to pay it; for he hath no pleasure in fools: pay that which thou hast vowed. Better is it that thou shouldest not vow, than that thou shouldest vow and not pay. Suffer not thy mouth to cause thy flesh to sin; neither say thou before the angel, that it was an error: wherefore should God be angry at thy voice, and destroy the work of thine hands?
KEY VERSE: 1 PETER 5:6
Humble yourselves therefore under the mighty hand of God, that he may exalt you in due time:
The Lord is HOLY, and He will judge unrighteousness. Therefore, let us fear and depart from all forms of evil or any associations that will disrupt or hinder the progress of the Lord’s work. Let us exercise care to ensure that we keep ourselves from selfish ambitions. Let us purge ourselves from every form of carnality, anything that can hinder the work of God, and/or invoke His wrath against His people.
If you feel you are not recognized or appreciated for your labor, wait on the Lord and let Him promote you. In due time as you humble yourself the Lord will lift you up. Despite all the signs and great works the Lord has done and is still doing, it will surprise you to know that there are some among us who still have doubts about the standard of holiness that the Lord is demanding from us.
For such people, if anyone rises up and declares something different, they readily go back to their sins, such as sinful dressing, make-up, wrong marriage, etc. Does it mean that these people have not yet understood righteousness or have they chosen to blind their eyes and heart to the truth of God so that they can continue in darkness? They delight in unrighteousness, harden their hearts, and choose darkness rather than light.
And this is the condemnation, that light is come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil. For every one that doeth evil hateth the light, neither cometh to the light, lest his deeds should be reproved.
Humble yourself and serve Him, be content with what has been allotted to you and be very peaceful. Honor those whom the Lord has promoted, serve them and obey them. It shall be well with you.
