EVERY WORD OF GOD FOR DAILY LIVING

Philippians 2:3 - Let nothing be done through strife or vainglory; but in lowliness of mind let each esteem other better than themselves.
Pray that you will understand Holiness Revival Movement well. Pray that you won’t see politics in this work or in the choice of leadership. Rather, you will see God and view things with a spiritual eye and understand things in a spiritual way. When Korah and his companions rebelled against Moses’ leadership, he was pained. The Lord was the one that said he should separate the children of Levi to serve in the temple and this was precisely what he did. Why then was Korah not satisfied with his divinely ordained role? The Lord gave him this grace and he thought it was a small thing, so he began to look for the priesthood also.
He gathered the mighty but foolish men; men who were dead in their heart, and dark in their heart; men who didn’t know the God they were serving. They came together under political power and said that they were fighting a just cause. Moses said, “Alright, we shall go back to the presence of the Lord. Let us hear God who spoke and made the choice in case you didn’t hear the first time. Politics is not in this matter; we would know whom the Lord will choose.”
Satan will choose to be in every place to destroy people. He worked on angels in perfect heaven. How much more where sinful men are? If you don’t handle Satan well, he will put an end to the godly thing the Lord is doing. You must learn how to handle Satan well.
Accept whatever position the Lord has called you into, maybe as a chapter or unit leader. Don’t struggle for position in HOREMOW. James, John and their mother came to Jesus, “Give us what we are looking for. Put one of us at your right hand and the other at your left hand in your Kingdom.” Jesus then told them, “You don’t know what you are asking. It is not for Me to give. It is given to whom my Father wills to give.”
Therefore, don’t struggle for position in your respective places. If you rebel and plot the removal of that coordinator, there is little possibility you will succeed him. In fact, throughout your stay in that place you may not become a coordinator. The Lord makes His choice, and He will continue to make His choice. Let us calm down and not allow Satan in our way. Appreciate the mercy God shows you to bring you to a place like this where you can hear the true Word.
Thought for the day:
Serve with joy and thanksgiving, wherever God has placed you.
Song for the day:
Let the Lord have His way, let the Lord have His way, put your hands in His hands……
Bible reading for the day:
Song of Solomon 4-5; 2 Corinthians 13
