Topic: Dealing with the early enemy of 2016 - part 3
Mat 25:24-25, ISV. “Then the one who had received one talent came forward and said, ‘Master, I knew that you were a hard man, harvesting where you haven’t planted and gathering where you haven’t scattered any seed. Since I was afraid, I went off and hid your talent in the ground. Here, take what’s yours!’
We are still in volumes of our theme: Dealing with the early enemy of the Year. Another enemy that I want you to take note from the text is NEGATIVE THOUGHTS ABOUT YOUR CREATOR.
The man said, "Master, I knew that you were a hard man, harvesting where you haven’t planted and gathering where you haven’t scattered any seed."
The way he seen his creator was the way he acted with Him. He saw God as wicked God. Meanwhile, the same God is the one that gave the man a talent, eyes to see, ears to hear, mouth to speak and eat, legs to walk, etc. Despite all these, the man still has it in his mind that God is a wicked God.
Lack of appreciation is a greatest enemy that has rob many people blessings. Instead to see God as the greatest God, the reverse is the case. Instead to see God as the greatest and the only Provider, they see Him as limited in doings.
Brethren, the way you see God this year is the way He will react and take step on your behalf. No matter what you are passing through, don't and never speak evil against God. God is God and He remains God forever. Whatever what happen to you cannot change God from who is He!
God will honour you when you honour Him. Many are honour God only with their mouth but their hearts are evil against Him. "He told them, “Isaiah was right when he prophesied about you hypocrites. As it is written, ‘These people honor me with their lips, but their hearts are far from me." Mark 7:6.
How do you see God in your business? How do see and feel His power? How do you see God in your spiritual realm? Without faith you cannot please God. Let your heart close to God. Let your thought be a godly thought. God is not your mate. Position Him as God in your life. Always first seek His Kingdom and His righteousness - Mathew 6:33. Let His thought be a priority in your heart.
Remember, you are in year 2016 not by your power, not by your wealth, not because of your position and not because you are perfect or holier. But because, God want it and approved it that you must lives in 2016. You must see God as the Almighty and the Only one that can settle your case and take you to where you should be. The key of your life is in His hand. Don’t joke with God but always be with Him. You can do this when you study your bible daily, pray unto Him daily and always live godly life.
