Improving our Spiritual Understanding
Theme: It is Wisdom to Live One Day at a Time.
Wisdom is the principal thing; therefore get wisdom: and with all thy getting get understanding ( Prov 4:7).
It is Wisdom to live one day at a time.
Many a times, I have seen people spend a lot of useful time, worrying a lot about their past, present and future. The truth is, humanly speaking, you may not be able to change your past. However, you can influence the present. You can change your future.
What our minds or thoughts focus on most of the time is very important. Our thoughts are the seeds we sow in the garden of our minds. Healthy thoughts invariably will bring about healthy harvest of fruitfulness ( joy, peace, love etc) and vice versa.
It’s very important for us to be sensitive to the predominant thoughts in our minds because, we are the sum total of our thoughts. The book of Proverb says: “For as he thinketh in his heart, so is he”(Prov 23:7)
How we spend every minute or hour of our time matters a lot. I have come to observe that people can spend hours jesting or playing without getting tired but the moment they start praying, tiredness will easily set it. This is because the devil is ever ready to do anything to cut off our communication with God in Christ.
Henceforth, be conscious of how you spend every hour of your time. Spend your time wisely. Jesus Christ has enabled us to know that WISDOM is practicing the word of God (Matt 7:24
). According to our memory verse, wisdom is the principal thing in life. Aim to diligently obey God and live holy one minute at a time, one hour at a time, one day at a time
Many at times , our minds are crowded with much worries, wrong thoughts and attitude that we are unable to perceive or hear what the Holy Spirit is saying. The Holy Spirit as a spiritual Person, is always speaking to us(John 16:13
). That same verse says the Holy Spirit does not speak of Himself but what He hears from the Word. Let us learn to be still and know that He is God(Ps 46:10).
Our Lord, Master and Saviour Jesus Christ admonishes us:Take therefore no thought for the morrow: for the morrow shall take thought for the things of itself. Sufficient unto the day is the evil there of (Matt 6:34
). Earlier on, our Master had admonished us not to worry about life at all:Therefore I say unto you, Take no thought for your life, what ye shall eat, or what ye shall drink; nor yet for your body, what ye shall put on. Is not the life more than meat, and the body than raiment? (Matt 6:25
Brethren, we brought nothing into this world and we shall leave this world with nothing (1 Tim 6:6-7). By the time we depart this world, our monies, houses, qualifications, titles etc shall not go with us. What matters really is living a life of total obedience to the word of God, which is quick and powerful ( Heb 4:12
Prayer: May God give us the grace to live holy and do that which is right in His sight, one day at a time in Jesus mighty name. Amen.
Have a Spirit-filled week in Jesus name.
Yours in the Vineyard of the Word. Ben Bassey,
Spiritual Counselling Helpline:
In the Ministry Of the Word (MOW)-Acts 6:4, we primarily encourage and empower believers to be rich in the words of God: “let the word of Christ dwell in you richly in all wisdom” (Col 3:16
). The entrance of the WORD is the true source of LIGHT in a dark world(Ps 119:130). We also encourage believers to speak to one another “in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs(Eph 5:19
). We encourage everyone to “seek first the kingdom of God his righteousness” Matt 6:33
). Righteousness exalts(Prov 14:34
). We emphasize that pure Christianity is about True Spirituality in Christ Jesus. We emphasize that the POWER in the blood of Jesus has set us FREE from bondage, and that where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty (2Cor 3:17
). Jesus Christ is the Word of God (John 1:1). Jesus is the Truth (John 14:6). The words of God are spirit & are Life(John 6:63). We allow the Scriptures to answer all questions. We create the awareness that Jesus has made all true believers kings and priests unto God and his Father(Rev 1:6). In addition, as a spiritual body, we also empower unbelievers, using the principles of our Lord Jesus Christ with the understanding that when they witness the power of the living God, they will exalt his holy name (Psalm 46:10). One major objective of MOW is to increasingly improve everyone’s spiritual understanding! Spiritual ignorance is a major cause of human destruction(Hosea 4:6). Indeed, many children of God have gone into captivity, because they have no knowledge (Isa 5:13
). Please note that the MOW is an initiative and the spiritual arm of Abasi Health Foundation (AHF). AHF is a registered NGO in Nigeria , with the primary objective of empowering all groups of people to optimize their health. It is aimed at encouraging everyone to have increasing awareness of three broad levels of health: Physical, Mental and Spiritual. May God give you the grace of increasing understanding in Jesus Name. Amen. Websites: http//www.ministryoftheword.org
