The Samaritan woman at the well did not remain the same when she heard and met with the Truth but was “set free to serve”, especially in the area of soul winning.
It is recorded in John 4:39-41 that; “Many of the Samaritans from that town believed in Him because of the woman’s testimony, He told me everything I ever did”…….and because of those words many became believers.
Mary Magdalene, from whom seven demons came out, and the other women in Luke 8:1-3 who were cured of evil spirits and diseases, were not set free just to be onlookers and stagnant in Jesus’s ministry but to serve Him. All these people knew they were saved to serve and delighted themselves to support and serve the ministry. God took them from their daily provision to abundant blessing, removing devourers for their sakes (Malachi 3:11). They had more than enough to support God’s work and followed Him wherever He went.
In following Jesus, we must watch our speech, disconnect ourselves from the way of sinners and delight ourselves in the Word – The truth will set us free, to be blessed and be a blessing.
We are also set free to know the truth about marriage. Always remember that if you have a happy marriage you will make a good home and reproduce good children – “A happy Hen lays good eggs”. What role are you playing in Jesus’ ministry today? Is your role thriving or stagnated? Do you neglect the purpose for which you have been called?
Prayer: Lord fill me with Your Holy Spirit so that I can manifest according to Your plan and purpose for my life. Help me to manifest Christ Jesus in all my ways and deeds. Make me a vessel of honour in Jesus name.
At the very last moment the thief that was beside Jesus cried out to Him in repentance. He humbled himself and acknowledged his guilt in sheer contrast to Jesus’ innocence. He pleaded to be part of Jesus’ Kingdom and was granted a spot in paradise with Jesus!
Luke 23:42-43; Then he said, “Jesus, remember me when you come into your kingdom. Jesus answered him, “Truly I tell you, today you will be with me in paradise.” It just shows you that it is never too late to repent. The bible says that all who come to Jesus, he will in no wise cast out (John 6:37).
God says in 2 Chronicles that “If my people, who are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.”
I receive for you from God’s throne of grace a repentant heart in the mighty name of Jesus.
The prayer this thief prayed beside Jesus made him to make heaven! Brethren, contrary to the lie of the devil, it is NEVER too late to repent. The road to hell fire is very wide while the road to eternal life is straight and narrow. We all need the special grace of God to stay on the straight and narrow.
You may currently be as sheep going astray; NOW is the time to return to the Shepherd and Bishop of your soul (1 Peter 2:25). Now is the time to return to your first love. I hope and pray that like Paul, you will press on toward the mark of a high calling of God in Christ Jesus (Phil. 3:14).
Prayer: Lord anything that stands in the way of my salvation, take it out of my life. Make my path clear and my eyes seeing and looking to Your glorious inheritance.
It is the absolute will of God to reveal Himself to you in this season as your Sovereign Provider. Until we accept and cooperate with the laws of gravity we cannot fly, neither can we succeed in business unless we understand the laws of economics. Surrendering to God is not weakness, it’s wisdom. It’s in our hope and surrendering to God that we are empowered to succeed in whatever we have been called to do.
God is saying to you; He is the Lord your God, and will not give HIS glory to anybody, The Lord is your helper! Peter demonstrated true surrender when he said, “we have toiled all night but nevertheless at Your Word, I will let down the net” (Luke 5:5-6). And when they had done this they caught a great number of fish.
Psalm 119:147: “I rise before dawn and cry for help: I have put my hope in You.”
I decree that “Today the favour of God will come upon you in the areas that men might have disappointed you or refused to help you in the past”
Prayer: Lord help me to be heavenly minded in everything I do, help my unbelief and strengthen my heart in challenging times.
