Three things God wants you to do in 2014

Many times God calls for our conscious co-operation. He gives us certain instructions and directions, and calls on us to follow. 

Many times God calls for our conscious co-operation. He gives us certain instructions and directions, and calls on us to follow. 

With ‘conscious co-operation’ guidance, we get to know what God wants us to do in advance. God says to us, “Go this way”, and it is our responsibility to either follow or disobey. So it‘s up to you to respond appropriately by:

 

Glorifying Him 

 

Glorifying God consists in four things: Appreciation, Adoration, Affection, and Subjection. From beginning to end, the driving impulse of God’s heart is to be praised for his glory. 

 

From creation to consummation his ultimate allegiance is to himself. His unwavering purpose in all he does is to exalt the honor of his name and to be marveled at for his grace and power. He is infinitely jealous for his reputation. “For my own sake, for my own sake I act,” says the Lord. “My glory I will not give to another!”

Our God will give temporal blessings to his children, such as wisdom, riches, honour; he will give them spiritual blessings, he will give them grace, he will give them his love, he will give them heaven; but his essential glory he will not give to another.

Saving

Last year (2013) you have been blessed but without stores…., you must therefore save this year 2014 the excess portion that you get from all your hard work. You must save to become wealthy. Saving means spending less than what you earn. It requires self-control, one of the gifts of the Holy Spirit. There is no other way to become wealthy. You must have a storehouse (savings) in order for it to be blessed. Even the ants have a storehouse. Your wealth has a purpose. It is not for your personal luxury. So, do not live extravagantly to excess, God hates this.

Working hard

Do not be lazy and spend time Gossiping. The Bible is clear on this in Proverbs 18:9:  Being lazy is no different from being a troublemaker. And verse 19 adds: Work hard, and you will have a lot of food; waste time, and you will have a lot of trouble.

Avoid  spending time on; WhatsApp, Facebook and other social media, wasting time on what does not bring real bread, please wake up! It is your period to be transforming your perspectives. God is ready to bless your work.

GOD LOVES YOU.
