Today's Inspiration: God reveals deep and hidden things. He knows what lies in darkness and light dwells with Him. Daniel 2:22. We need to be sensitive to the voice of the Holy Spirit so that we will not be easily ensnared by the voice of deception. What is important is the voice of the Holy Spirit who is speaking truth to you. Do not be easily deceived by flattering lips nor words of condemnation. Hear what the Spirit of the Lord is speaking to you. Apostle Paul warned Timothy to avoid godless charter because those who indulge in it will become more and more ungodly. In participating in these conversations, we have strayed away from the truth. 2 Timothy 2:16.
As God's people, we must know what our great commission is in Matthew 28:18-20. Instead of participating in sharing the Gospel, even matured Christians are trying to be involved in conversations regarding politics. Are we fighting a good fight of faith to win the race for an imperishable crown of righteousness by extending His kingdom more than the world's kingdom? God is calling us to serve in areas we are anointed to serve and do it well. Our righteousness in Christ must be more than the world's righteousness to signify we are Jesus' disciples. God's counsel today is not to neglect the gift which had been given to you but be diligent to perform what you have been commissioned to do so that everyone may see your progress. Watch your life and doctrine closely. Persevere in them because if you do so, you will save both yourself and your hearers. 1 Timothy 4:15-16. God be praised.
