WITNESSLINE DEVOTIONAL: DAY 1, OVERCOMING THE WORLD

THEME:
OVERCOMING THE WORLD

DAY ONE

THE PLACE OF GOD IN THE LIFE OF A MAN

 1Sam 8:7 And the LORD told him: “Listen to all that the people are saying to you; it is not you they have rejected, but they have rejected me as their king.

MEDITATION

A man’s life is at its best shape when the place of God in his life remains intact. It is the first thing that matters in the life of a man and it is not negotiable. Every other thing is secondary. When a man refuses to place God as his first priority, the devil makes such a man as his first priority. God has been the king of the people of Israel. That gave them great and marvelous victories in all the battles with their rivals and they became a nation greatly feared in the earth territory. But here they are today asking for a human-king, because they likened themselves to other nations of the earth. When God takes charge of you don’t compare yourself to others. Do not measure your successes with the standard of the world.

PRAYERS

1 Hail Mary, 21 times and Thank you Jesus, 21 times.

2 Bible Study: 1Sam 8

3 Lessons:

1. Do not emulate the styles of the sons of this world. True sons of God are guided by Kingdom principles.

2. When you refuse to place God as your first priority, the devil makes you his first priority.

3. That you are not seeing God’s steps with you in the wilderness does not mean He is not walking with you. Perhaps, He may have lifted you on his shoulders. Let him see you through, HE DOES NOT FAIL.

4 Silence (5 to 10 minutes) (write down your own lessons; learn to hear from God and write down whatever God says to you)

5  Intercessory Prayers:

Prayer points

  1. Ask God for mercy and forgiveness in areas you have given out His place to other things.
  2. Ask Him to come take his place in your life.
  3. Rebuke every ways the devil is seducing you with the standards of this world.
  4. Pray for grace to be strong and fervent in the Lord, no matter your situation.
  5. Ask God to keep far from you situations that would make you question / doubt the presence of God in your life.
