21 Days Fast & Pray - Day 10 : SAC and the ministries


21 Days Fast & Pray - Day 10 : SAC and the ministries

A. Devotion - Chronicles 29:11

"My sons, do not be negligent now, for the Lord has chosen you to stand before Him, to serve Him and that you should minister to Him and burn incense."

And this story is about a young king, only 25 years of age, King Hezekiah and the task laid before him and the choice laid in front of him (God never violates the free will He has given to us).

It was a dark period is history. King Hezekiah's father, King Ahaz, decided to take Israel out from God. He worshipped other gods. Israel was gripped by wickedness, King Ahaz made an unholy alliance with the Assyrians who in turn betrayed Israel but when young 25 year old Hezekiah took over, a young lad of 25, he made a choice not to follow his father's footsteps. Instead, King Hezekiah made his choice to bring the nation back to the one true God. And He set to put the House of God in order, to declutter Israel out of darkness, called the people to worship God Almighty and put the Levites into their rightful place as priests of the Land!

Then Hezekiah and all the people rejoiced that God had prepared all the people; we see the sudden hand of God as revival took over and the people prospered! Humility, praying and worship; moved the hands of God.

2020 presents a new norm. Confusion and fear reigns and carefully laid plans disarrayed. It also presents a time of reflection, of uncluttering our minds and come back to the peace and orderliness of God. A revival in your heart makes the Holy Spirit work. Hezekiah restored the House of God and along with him the people came with a willing heart and offered burnt offering.

As we turn the pages of stories told in the bible, this may become our experience. When God's people honor Him, He reveals His power. As the psalmist sings, "Search me, O God, and know my heart, test me and know my anxious thoughts. See if there is any offensive way in me, and lead me in the way everlasting." (Psalm 139:23-24)

B. Application / Self-reflection

  1. Will you declutter the House of God (our hearts) to give room for the Holy Spirit? Get back to the Shekinah glory of God. (Eph 4:31)
  2. If the Lord has chosen you to stand before Him, to serve Him, minster unto Him and burn the incense of worship, have you adorned yourself with God's holiness? Make sure you do it and do it well.

The Danger of Spiritual Infancy (Hebrews 5:11 - 6:12)

Have you met people who refuse to grow up? There are some adults who prefer to remain as children because they do not want to take on adult responsibilities. Not only is immature behaviour unpleasant to observe or deal with, the consequences are often destructive. In Hebrews 5:11-14, the writer expresses his frustration that some members of the church were refusing to grow into spiritual maturity. They were no longer trying to understand God’s word (v 11). Instead of taking on the responsibility of teaching others as they themselves had been taught, they needed to be taught the basics all over again (v12). Therefore, they were unable to take on “solid food” which is for mature Christians, and they were not able to distinguish good from evil (v14) or to understand teaching about righteousness (v13). Spiritual maturity is a necessary part of our walk with God. Remaining as a spiritual infant means that you are not good at discerning right from wrong and you will have a hard time maintain

A prophet prophesies and the church fully obeys (Acts 11:27- 12:4)

During this time some prophets came down from Jerusalem to Antioch. 28 One of them, named Agabus, stood up and through the Spirit predicted that a severe famine would spread over the entire Roman world. (This happened during the reign of Claudius.) 29 The disciples, as each one was able, decided to provide help for the brothers and sisters living in Judea. 30 This they did, sending their gift to the elders by Barnabas and Saul. 12 It was about this time that King Herod arrested some who belonged to the church, intending to persecute them. 2 He had James, the brother of John, put to death with the sword. 3 When he saw that this met with approval among the Jews, he proceeded to seize Peter also. This happened during the Festival of Unleavened Bread. 4 After arresting him, he put him in prison, handing him over to be guarded by four squads of four soldiers each. Herod intended to bring him out for public trial after the Passover. When Jewish believers from Cyprus (Europe) and Cyrene (Liby


Daily Devotion Tuesday 22nd September  Isaiah 54 – GOD’S PROMISE FOR FRUITFULNESS AND BLESSING    This scripture is a beautiful promise of encouragement and affirmation to God’s people. If you have served God faithfully, but you feel discouraged, if you feel that your effort thus far has not borne any fruit, if you feel that you have been despised or looked down upon, this promise is for you.    God tells the “barren woman” to sing and shout for joy, because God will give her the desire of her heart and gift her with more children than she can imagine (v1). This is a prophecy for the increase and expansion of the nation of Israel through the birth of many children, and a promise that the city would be rebuilt. The barren woman could also mean a person or a church that is feeling discouraged, unfulfilled or foolish. Perhaps you feel foolish and discouraged for putting your trust in God for so long, but you have not experienced the results that you expected? If you are feeling discourage
