PROMOTE YOUR SPIRITUAL WELLBEING
Saturday, December 5
"5 And thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thine heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy might.
6 And these words, which I command thee this day, shall be in thine heart:
7 And thou shalt teach them diligently unto thy children, and shalt talk of them when thou sittest in thine house, and when thou walkest by the way, and when thou liest down, and when thou risest up."
"For I know him, that he will command his children and his household after him, and they shall keep the way of the LORD, to do justice and judgment; that the LORD may bring upon Abraham that which he hath spoken of him."
Observe Adequate Quiet Time With God. If you are too busy in the morning then create another period. Even in your office, you can create time to be with God. Many years ago when I was an office worker, I would trek for a long distance to and fro, and use the opportunity to pray on the way because it was not possible for me to pray in the office. Rather, I would pray on my way to and from the office and that way I would have had a good time with God in prayer. It made me feel good and fulfilled.
Make Personal Spiritual Commitment. Sometimes ago, I decided that I would be listening to four messages per day for one week. That commitment was heavy. Sometimes, it took me up to 12 midnight listening to the messages. It got to the extent that I sometimes stood up to ensure that I did not sleep due to exhaustion. The Lord saw my determination and helped me achieve my target. I listened to twenty-eight messages in one week. Discipline yourself by making valuable commitments to help your Christian life.
Meet Your Target in HOREMOW Assignments. The Horemow assignments that are given to members of Horemow is in obedience to a direct instruction from the Lord. The Lord desires that the assignments be given to members, to youths, to women and leaders to keep you alive and fresh spiritually. All believers are to take them seriously in order to maintain a consistent life of holiness and righteousness required to go to heaven. Therefore, do not play with the assignments on daily prayers, Bible reading, reading of Horemow books and listening regularly to the messages.
Plan Feasible Prayer Time: Diligently follow your schedule of prayer. Observe fastings and vigils. Join others in spiritual activities and exercises. As a leader, when the members of your Chapter are praying, join them. Do not go and sit in the office. As you are training them for heaven, do not exclude yourself from the rigorous exercises. Practice those things that will make you alert spiritually. The Lord gave us a message: “When people are praying, join them. You and your wife should join them and do it, I will repay you. I want people to labour in prayer and I will give them the reward.” Seek counsel on how to do it well in the Lord and you will have victory over the enemy.
