CHARACTER STUDY: PAUL 106

KEY SCRIPTURE: Acts 28:8 ” And it came to pass, that the father of Publius lay sick of a fever and of a bloody flux: to whom Paul entered in, and prayed, and laid his hands on him, and healed him”.

 Apostle continue with his exploits on the island of Melita. Paul healed the father of Publius who had fever and dysentery. He healed many that were sick. Paul was a man who knew his God. True knowledge of God is the bases for doing exploits in His name Jesus. Daniel 11:32 “And such as do wickedly against the covenant shall he corrupt by flatteries: but the people that do know their God shall be strong, and do exploits”.

The Bible says those who do know their God shall wax strong and do exploits. Dear child of God, seek to know God for yourself. Sadly, a lot of people know their man of God, yet the God of this man they know not. The word says those who do know their God shall wax strong. Knowing God imparts stability, courage and decisiveness to a man. Failure in life is  mostly a function of weakness. Weakness breeds subjectivity

This is what makes people yield to various conditions that show up. A true knowledge of God  stabilizes your focus. There is no success in any endeavour without a decisive focus on what one is aiming at.

Apostle Paul declares in 2 Timothy 1:12 that “. I know whom I have believed, and I am persuaded that he is able to keep that which I have committed unto him against that day.

I ask again, do you know this God? How much prepared are you ready to commit everything into His hands? Paul’s achievements in Christ, were all due to his absolute dedication to Jesus based on his knowledge of Him. You can also know Him if you would seek for Him with all your heart.(Jeremiah 29:13)He says he will make himself known to you if you would keep His word and do them (John 14:21,22)You can also know Him as you search the scriptures. John 5:39 “Search the scriptures; for in them ye think ye have eternal life: and they are they which testify of me”.

Remember, those who seek in truth always find

CONFESSION

I know the Lord. I am made strong and stable because of my knowledge of Him. Nothing moves or shakes me in this life. I am full of outstanding successes in all I do. God is always glorified in me.
