Eyes That Sees, Ears That Hears, Give To Us Lord!

Discernment will guide you from sharing your dreams with your enemies like Joseph did with his brothers – Genesis 37:5 Even those that should love and celebrate the fact that you can dream at all may kick against your lofty dreams like Jacob did. No matter how Jacob kicked against it, regardless of the evil schemes of Joseph’s brothers, the Word of God came to pass. So shall the Word of God concerning you come to pass for the glory of His Holy name. Amen

discernment

Saul was smart enough to keep the part about the anointing from his uncle. He took a cue from 1 Samuel 9:27 As they were going down to the outskirts of the city, Samuel said to Saul, “Tell the servant to go on ahead of us.” And he went on. “But you stand here awhile, that I may announce to you the word of God.” Many lack discernment and would ignore cues to avoid pitfalls. May the Lord himself guide us all. Amen

1 Samuel 10: 14 Then Saul’s uncle said to him and his servant, “Where did you go?” So he said, “To look for the donkeys. When we saw that they were nowhere to be found, we went to Samuel.” 15 And Saul’s uncle said, “Tell me, please, what Samuel said to you.” 16 So Saul said to his uncle, “He told us plainly that the donkeys had been found.” But about the matter of the kingdom, he did not tell him what Samuel had said.

discernment-is-fundamentalBeware of those that act like they care for you and you know, kind of, its all a facade. They are only acting as such to know your plan so as to jeopardize you. Pray for discernment to see through such, but more importantly yourself, for the heart of man is desperately wicked, who can know it.

Revelation knowledge brings assurance, confidence, and peace. Lord release unto us access to hidden secrets that will accelerate the fulfillment of our destiny today in Jesus’s name. Amen. —- Culled from Pastor E. A. Adeboye, Open Heavens Devotional, May 2nd, 2018

The Man/Woman Preferred Of God!

When God has chosen you, heaven and earth can do nothing except to oblige. The Lord will order your steps through the mountains and hills, the plains and the rough places for He is the I AM! He will guide you to your desired place.

The I Am will do wonders in your life that will baffle all including yourself. Note that you did nothing to attract God’s anointing, it was His prerogative to choose whom He will, and looking through the Scriptures and history, there’s none called by God without a hitch. For Saul, it was low self-esteem. He was taller than any of the people from his shoulders upward – 1 Samuel 10:23, yet he was so unsure of himself even after having been anointed secretly, and prophesying publicly, he hid among the equipment!

light in the clayNothing can hide you if God has chosen you. The failed marriages of the Samaritan woman did not hide her, it led her to the well that day. I know that there were many married women in that city. Many wives of the Pharisees, Sadducees and the Scribes, but none went down to the well to meet with Jesus. The facts of your life cannot stop you fulfilling what the Lord ordained for you either. Satan will whisper though, he will taunt you no doubt about that! Don’t allow your mind to play tricks on you, neither allow any human to limit you. Fight for your destiny. Resist till the end!

How often have you and I looked at ourselves and think, maybe God made a mistake? Every single Prophet and deliverer in the Scriptures thought so about themselves except a handful. God is not looking for perfection in human character or personality, He looks for the availability of the soul. Unfortunately human look at what can be seen with the eyes. Only the discerning can see as Samuel did and foretold accurately!

St Thomas Aquinas

1 Samuel 10:1- 11 Then Samuel took a flask of oil and poured it on his head, and kissed him and said: “Is it not because the Lord has anointed you commander over His inheritance? 2 …………….Then the Spirit of the Lord will come upon you, and you will prophesy with them and be turned into another man. And let it be, when these signs come to you, that you do as the occasion demands; for God is with you. You shall go down before me to Gilgal, and surely I will come down to you to offer burnt offerings and make sacrifices of peace offerings. Seven days you shall wait, till I come to you and show you what you should do.” So it was when he had turned his back to go from Samuel, that God gave him another heart; and all those signs came to pass that day. 10 When they came there to the hill, there was a group of prophets to meet him; then the Spirit of God came upon him, and he prophesied among them11 And it happened when all who knew him formerly saw that he indeed prophesied among the prophets, that the people said to one another,What is this that has come upon the son of Kish? Is Saul also among the prophets? 12 Then a man from there answered and said, “But who is their father?” Therefore it became a proverb: “Is Saul also among the prophets?” 13 And when he had finished prophesying, he went to the high place.

Be encouraged and ask God to show you a true picture of yourself. Ask God to open your eyes to the secret things that will make a difference in your life, and help you to make a difference in your community like the Samaritan woman. — Culled from Open Heavens Devotional by Pastor E.A.
