KEY SCRIPTURE: Romans 12:1 ” I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable service.”
A life totally committed to the Lord is the safest way to live. Our key scripture says it is our reasonable service. This implies every other way is unreasonable. When the Israelites were leaving Egypt King Pharaoh made a suggesting to the children of Israel. Exodus 10:24 “And Pharaoh called unto Moses and said, go ye serve the Lord, only let your flocks and your herds be stayed: let your little ones also go with you”. Pharaoh’s request is one of the biggest strategy of Satan. He tells you serve God, yet as for one Sunday in the month just stay at home and rest. Serve God with all you have but keep your monies and don’t make sacrifices unto God. He may ask you to serve the Lord but just keep the worldly music or may be some “x” films. (X rated films are pornographic firms).
Please listen to Moses answer to King Pharaoh. Exodus 10:26 “Our cattle also shall go with us; there shall not an hoof be left behind, for there of must we take to serve the Lord….”. Dear child of God let God have everything. Anything left for the devil, leaves you in bondage. Everything given to God is your deliverance. The call of God is purely for our deliverance and liberty. Give everything over to the Lord. This is the most secured way to live. The Lord Jesus explained this in Matthew 16:25 this way “for whosoever will save his life shall lose it; and whosoever will lose his life for my sake shall find it”. Don’t be wiser than the master, the man who fails to commit his whole life totally unto the Lord, would lose it although he may be attempting to secure it.
Satan is an enemy of all men. He is like a roaring Lion seeking whom he may devour. Who are those he may or can devour? Those who have decided not to yield their whole being to the Lord Jesus. Such a person has no shepherd over his soul. The enemy has the cheapest task to pounce on such a person and tear him or her apart. The Holy Spirit begs us in the key scripture to give ourselves totally to Him.
Thank you Heavenly Father for the opportunity to be yielded to you. My life is perfectly secured and no devil can make a mess of me because the Lord is my shepherd.
Psalms 23:1. The LORD is my shepherd; I shall not want.
John 12:24 ” Verily, verily, I say unto you, except a corn of wheat fall into the ground and die, it abideth alone: but if it die, it bringeth forth much fruit”.
