Topic: BEWARE OF WHAT YOU LISTEN TO 2
Bible Reading: 2 Kings 7:5-7
📖5….”And they rose up in the twilight, to go unto the camp of the Syrians: and when they were come to the uttermost part of the camp of Syria, behold, there was no man there.
📖6….For the Lord had made the host of the Syrians to hear a noise of chariots, and a noise of horses, even the noise of a great host: and they said one to another, Lo, the king of Israel hath hired against us the kings of the Hittites, and the kings of the Egyptians, to come upon us.
📖7….Wherefore they arose and fled in the twilight, and left their tents, and their horses, and their asses, even the camp as it was, and fled for their life.”
🔥As the Lord made the Syrians to hear the sound of chariots and horses from the 4 lepers’ feet in 2 Kgs 7:6, so the devil deceives with hearing and listening. In Mark 4:24, Jesus warned us to be careful of what we hear. What you hear makes you a child of God (Luke 8:21), or a child of the devil (Genesis 3:1-6). You that is reading this devotional now, what do you like hearing? And how do you hear what you hear? Some people hear Good News in the Church with bad ears and it profits them nothing…Heb 4:2. Remember that Rebekah only heard what Isaac was saying to Esau, and she used it to build Jacob. May all that we hear, draw us closer to our God.
🔥🔥In Luke 10:38-42, while Mary constantly listened to the word of life, Martha was busy cooking the food of the body. But Jesus approved Mary for listening to him, but condemned Martha’s choice to cook for him in verse 42. If you listen to evil counsel against the word of life, your profits will be hindered. The bad news heard by Eli and the wife of Phinehas in 1 Sam 4:14-22, killed Eli and birthed an era of no glory in Israel. Even though the nurses encouraged her during the delivery, that she had birthed a man child, the bad news she had already heard, deafened her from accepting the good news in verse 20.
🔥🔥🔥You children of God that stand at the Church gate to welcome worshippers into God’s house, what news do you tell them at the gate about the God they come to worship? Do you give evil counsel to the new comers like Absalom in 2 Sam 15:1-6, who made the Jews to rise up against king David by his evil speeches? Beloveth, even if you hear rumours of war, don’t be troubled; because rumours of war are not wars. Once you listen to, accept such rumoured wars and problems, you will be taken by them.
🙏Dear Lord, deprive the devil of attracting me from you with deceptive and destructive idle sounds in Jesus’ name.
🙏🙏Ever faithful father, lead me only to where I will listen to what will draw me closer to you, in Jesus’ name.
🙏🙏🙏Ancient of days, circumcise the ears and hearts of all new converts to our Church, to only listen to your word of life anytime they are in the Church, or outside the Church, in Jesus’ name.
