Topic: The responding God! (SUNDAY SPECIAL)

Highlights
Which of you, if your son asks for bread, will give him a stone? Matthew 7:10

Don't let anything derail you from being what God wants you to be in this day and age. God is coming bringing response to your call. You do not know what you truly need but God knows the best. Mark 13:36 says "If he comes suddenly, do not let him find you sleeping."

We are not asked to be sleepless but to be awakened. To beware of temptation that could lead us into falling away from God's plan. God said in Jeremiah 33:3 that we should call to him and He will answer and show us great and unsearchable things we do not know. While God is responding do not sleep on distractions of life.

One day I woke up excellently and in perfect shape to carry out life changing plans. But as I laid hands on my phone, I started reading various news on social media and forgot to do what I initially planned. I slept into hours of oblivion reading through news and people's comments on the internet.

"but while men slept, his enemy came and sowed tares among the wheat and went his way". Matthew 25:13 which means while you left God's plans and real purpose in life, something else may come up to steal away your time and opportunity.

Remember "And while they (unwise virgin) went to buy, the bridegroom came; and they that were ready went in with him to the marriage: and the door was shut." Matthew 25:10

Some of us knew the good old days when big things started very little and now it has turned into big things. While the unwise virgin became awakened that their lamp is running out of oil. They went to buy, the bridegroom came and took the prepared ones away and the door was shut. For example in those days when landed properties were sold at very cheap rates and the cities was before an unkempt town, some people bought land and built while some people looked away. Today the unkempt towns has become mega cities all over the world and the meticulous ones cannot even afford to live there. Some people would have regretted not buying those cheap properties in Paris when they had the opportunity because Paris was not a city but today its too late, there is no more lands in Paris and even if you want to buy any you have to pay the uttermost sum.

God is responding to everyone. It is time for Christians to stick to the game plan and avoid being tempted to be derailed from God's plan. Be who God wants you to be now - doctor, lawyer, politicians, pastor etc and remain on the framework even if you are not there yet, so that when God comes responding he will find you worthy.

Are not two sparrows sold for a penny? Yet not one of them will fall to the ground apart from the will of your Father. Matthew 10:29

Later the others also came. ‘Lord, Lord,’ they said, ‘open the door for us!’

“But he replied, ‘Truly I tell you, I don’t know you.’ Mark 25:11-12

Not everyone who says to me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ will enter the kingdom of heaven, but only the one who does the will of my Father who is in heaven. Matthew 7:21

I have got to tell you that this emoji devotions is embarked on giving the thousand years meaning to your life. The word of God is eternal. Got stucked to God's plan, spiritually, physically, emotionally, psychologically and in all remifications so that in the end you will rejoice with God when he comes.

What I say to you, I say to everyone: 'Watch!'" Mark 13:37

Prayer: Help me Lord and give me grace to stay in structured plans you have for me in Jesus name. Amen.

Indeed,

"The eyes of the Lord are on the righteous, And His ears are open to their cry." - Psalm 34:15

"For we do not have a High Priest who cannot sympathize with our weaknesses, but was in all points tempted as we are, yet without sin. Let us therefore come boldly to the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy and find grace to help in time of need." - Hebrews 4:15-16
