TITLE: SHOW INTEREST
AUTHORED BY PASTOR CHARLES AND FAVOUR CHUKWUEMEZIE
JAMES 4:8 ” Draw near to God and He will draw near to you. Cleanse your hands, you sinners; and purify your hearts, you double-minded.”
God doesn’t call the perfect or else they’ll be filled with pride from self righteousness. All God does is; put down His offer on the table. His offer is so mouth watering, still we have people who don’t ever show interest in it. Obviously, the world people are not good business people. The god of this world has so blinded their eyes not to see the beauty in God’s offer.
“They that hunger and thirst after righteousness, they shall be filled.” This speaks of interest. God placed a carrot- the burning bush. His motive was to get Moses attention. And Moses showed interest in knowing what the sight was about. That’s when God came closer to really show Him what He was looking for. That’s when God now revealed exactly what He has in His heart that involves Him and His people. If you don’t draw near, God won’t.
We have many Christians roaming up and down facing their own lives but never showing interest to know what is on God’s mind. No wonder there are failures, regrets and disappointments everywhere.
David never lost a battle because He had a way of walking in God’s will. He was interested in God and wouldn’t fight without sensing permission from Him. God calls him a man after His heart.
How far with you? Are you really interested in knowing what God wants for your life? Do you really need His permission for the things you have in your heart that you want to pursue?
It is important that you hunger and thirst for God, that’s what it means to hunger and thirst after righteousness; that’s what it means to show interest in God. It’s not enough to claim it, prove it.
PRAYER AND DECLARATION
