The Power Of Your Consecration
Joshua 3:5 (NIV) “Joshua told the people “CONSECRATE YOURSELVES, for TOMORROW the LORD WILL DO AMAZING THINGS AMONG YOU”. Daniel 1:8 “BUT DANIEL PURPOSED IN HIS HEART THAT HE WOULD NOT DEFILE HIMSELF with the portion of the KING’S MEAT NOR WITH THE WINE which he drank”.
DESPITE the endemic pollution and contamination in our world today, GREAT DAYS are ahead for those who belong to the KING of all kings. Joshua was very sensitive to what God was about to do in his generation; so, he admonished the people to set themselves apart unto God. Tomorrow is just 24hrs from now.
God has made an irrevocable covenant to do marvels and extra-ordinary things in the lives of those that cling to Him. Exodus 34:10 “And He said Behold, I MAKE A COVENANT BEFORE ALL thy people.
I WILL DO MARVELS, such as have not been done in all the earth, nor in any nation and all the people among which thou art shall see the work of the LORD; FOR IT IS A TERRIBLE THING THAT I WILL DO with thee”.
The major enemy to the marvels God was about to perform in the lives of His people was idolatrous pollution. It is shocking to know that in our world today, what was right is now wrong and what was wrong is now right.
Positive values are being eroded. Naturally, you do not see the he-goat mating with another he-goat. Neither do you see a female dog mating with another female dog.
God created Adam and Eve and not Adam and Adam or Eve and Eve. The Bible says if the foundation is destroyed, what will the righteous do? Psalm 11:3. It is certainly true that God will forgive every sin committed by mortal men but the place of our consecration to God should not be compromised.
Those who have a solid covenant relationship with God will always leverage on their devotion to God. 2Timothy 2:19 “Nevertheless the foundation of God standeth sure, having this seal, The LORD knoweth them that are His. And, LET EVERY ONE THAT NAMETH THE NAME OF CHRIST DEPART FROM INIQUITY”.
We are excited about what God will do in your life TOMORROW. God is prophetically saying that there is A GREAT FUTURE, great blessing mapped out for you.
The sine qua non for this glorious future is your consecration to God. Consecration is not a state of sinless perfection but a state of continuous devotion to God, His Word and Life of the Holy Spirit.
Our devotion to God puts us in a place of continuous cleansing and deliverance from environmental contamination. 1John 2: 15-17 “LOVE NOT THE WORLD, neither the things that are in the world. If any man love the world, THE LOVE OF THE FATHER IS NOT IN HIM; for all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh and the lust of the eyes and the pride of life, IS NOT OF THE FATHER but is of the world.
And the world passeth away and the lust thereof, BUT HE THAT DOETH THE WILL OF GOD ABIDETH FOREVER”. Get ready for tomorrow; a glorious future is laid out before you.
Do not be like Esau, Lot’s wife or Judas. What is ahead is greater than what you have ever received. Consecrate your life daily to God in prayers, devotion, service and obedience.
You will surely experience God’s amazing Wonders. PRAYER: Father God I present myself to you. I renounce spiritual, physical and environmental pollution going on in the world.
I receive cleansing by the Blood of JESUS. Today, I consecrate my Spirit, Soul and Body to the LORD JESUS. LORD, use me for your own Glory. LORD, do marvels in my life. JESUS CHRIST IS MY LORD.
