KEEP YOUR SECRET.

                                 
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.  

PRAYER: 
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.

FIGHT THE GOOD FIGHT

Fight the good fight of faith. Take hold of the eternal life to which you were called when you made your good confession in the presence of many witnesses(I Timothy 6:12).
In the journey of life, battles are not optional but mandatory. Even at birth, a child must be made to cry. At that point, he fights to overcome the force that wants to keep his lungs closed; so as to  live. Henceforth, various battles begin. 
When one becomes born again, the dynamics of the fight changes. He will still fight but this time around it is a good fight. The bible calls it the “Good Fight of Faith”. The fight is a good fight; the weaponry is also a unique one, FAITH. So a believer fights the good fight of faith, this fight is  termed a good fight because the end is determined from the beginning. Victory is guaranteed at the end. It is a fight to be won. Halleluyah!
It is like watching a replayed boxing match whose winner you already know. The same way, God is not bothered about what fight you may be involved …

LISTEN TO GODS' VOICE TODAY

"Today if you hear God’s voice speaking to you, do not harden your hearts against Him, as the people of Israel did when they rebelled against Him in the desert.” (Hebrew 3:15).
God speaks to his creation at all times. As we read the bible we see instances where God spoke to unbelievers, example; Saul,  Nebuchadnezzar etc. Jesus spoke to the wind and it obeyed him, He also spoke to the fig tree. How much more you his child. It is an error for you to say you can’t hear his voice. 
Jesus speaking in..…John 10:27 said; “My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me.” 
As Gods' children, we have the capacity and the ability to hear His voice. But the challenge is; a lot of us do not pay attention and listen to what God is saying. Probably because we are waiting to have the Saul’s encounter of a voice speaking from heaven (Act 9:4).
God speaks to us in our spirit with a small still voice. Prophet Elijah had an encounter with this voice… II Kings 19:12 -13 “...and after the…

THE WISDOM OF GOD.

Daniel answered and said, Blessed be the name of God for ever and ever: for wisdom and might are His. And he changes the times and the seasons: He removes  Kings, and sets up Kings; He gives wisdom unto the wise, and knowledge to them that know understanding. (Daniel 2:20-21)
This is profound words of Daniel praising God of all possibilities when he was with his friends narrating his experience to interpret and tell king Nebuchadnezzar of the dream he had. 
There is a wisdom from God that dethrones and enthrones. When you walk in the wisdom of God, you take your place in destiny; you get blessed by the same circumstances that destroy others;when  men are saying “There is a casting down”, You shall say “There is a lifting up”. The wisdom of God is superior to every other  wisdom. 
Five (5) important truths you need to know about the wisdom of God;  1. God is the source of wisdom  2. God is the fountain of wisdom  3. God is the giver of wisdom  4. God is the God of wisdom  5. God is the Author of …
