KEY SCRIPTURE:2Timothy 2:4 KJV” No man that warreth entangleth himself with the affairs of this life; that he may please him who hath chosen him to be a soldier”.
‘ ALL those the Lord uses, don’t lead normal or ordinary lives. Living for God is warring and no warrior lives like a civilian. The people of this world are all under the power and influence of the prince of the power of the air, that is Satan (Eph 2:2 & 3). To live like them is to come under Satan’s dominion. The Lord said, we are in this world, but we are not of this world. (John 15:19) The forces of this world seek to model us after their nature and ways. The servant of God must aggressively resist this. The Bible says as we renew our minds with the word of God, which is the wisdom of God, we would prove that which is good, acceptable and perfect will of God. (Rom 12:2). It is living the life of a renewed mind that makes us beneficial to the Lord
The man God uses resonates with God in the way he does his things. All things are possible with him. He talks in line with the word. His words are filled with love, grace and peace. There is no guile in his mouth. He is confident of a certain future, because his life is a seed planted in God. He knows He cannot fail. 2Timothy 1:12 KJV”……: for I know whom I have believed, and am persuaded that he is able to keep that which I have committed unto him against that day”. He is filled with peace and relates peaceably towards all men.
Joseph, the Son of Israel decided to be different because he knew God would use him one day. He always told the truth, would not accept an immoral request to defile himself, and was never bitter about the mistreatment of his brothers. He always acted as God would want him to. The result was that God was always with him. Gen 39:2 KJV” And the LORD was with Joseph, and he was a prosperous man; and he was in the house of his master the Egyptian”. Focus on pleasing the Lord and God would focus on promoting you (Matt 6:33).
I am sold out to the Lord. I live according to His word. The Spirit of the Lord working through me achieves so much for Himself. My life is a great blessing to many and myself as a well. Thank you, Lord.
