Saul replied, “He assured us that the donkeys had been found”. But he did not tell his uncle what Samuel had said about the kingship.(I Samuel 10:16)
We live in a generation where many do not understand the 'Power of Secret'. Saul told his uncle about the donkeys that were found, but never disclosed to him the encounter he had with Prophet Samuel and the anointing for kingship.
You see, the world today is full of evil, wickedness, envy and
jealousy. If you don’t know how to control your mouth, you may not live long. Samson told Delilah his secret and that led to his
downfall and premature death. Joseph told his brothers the secret conversation and dream God showed him instead of
keeping quiet, which led to a near death experience, imprisonment and all kinds of battles.
My question today is; who
have you been sharing your secret plans, dreams and prophesy with? That may be the reason for the unending battles and
stagnation you are experiencing. Change that bad attitude today.
Learn from Mary, the Bible says in Luke 2:19… “But Mary kept
all these things in her heart and thought about them often”.
The problem with you is that you can't keep secret. Hear this, a man's secret is where his strength and power lies. There are things you need to keep for the right time.
She did not go about spreading the news but rather kept it in her heart. The more you keep things to yourself, the less envy you attract and the fewer battles you fight. Please be wise!
What can make a man to speak out a secret?
1. Over-excitement: Don't make decision when over-excited, beecause you may not know when you will let the cat out of the bag. Joseph couldn't control his excitement of his dreams, but decided to share with his brothers, not knowing that his beginning of hatred will be from them.
2. Frustration: Don't make decision when you are frustrated. it was frustration that made Samson to disclosed his secret to Delilah.
1I Kings 20:13-21 Hezekiah welcomed the Babylonian envoys and showed them everything in his treasure houses; the silver, the gold, the spices, and the aromatic oils. He also took them to see his armory and showed them all his other treasures, everything! There was nothing in his palace or kingdom that Hezekiah did not show them........
What! The problem to your downfall is that you trust people easily. Is it wrong to share the testimony of the Lord's doing in your life? Emphatically, No! But there are some people around you who don't deserve to hear your testimony. Then, you keep it and be praising God in your heart.
Genesis 37:5 One night Joseph had a dream and promptly reported the details to his brothers, causing them to hate him even more.
Some dreams are not for third party involvement, they are for your hearing alone.
1. Father any way I may have used my mouth to attract battles into my life, deliver me today in Jesus name.
2. Anyone around my life who is an enemy acting like a friend be exposed in Jesus name.
