Today’s Inspiration: “Make a tree good and its fruit will be good, or make a tree bad and its fruit will be bad, for a tree is recognized by its fruit.” Matthew 12:33 NIV. Jesus always referred a tree to a man and where the tree is or produce is a reflection of one’s prayer and spiritual life. When we take in bad food, we get sick or bad company, we become corrupted, or bad words, we destroy relationships. King David began his psalms and meditation at the river of God in prayer, petitions, and thanksgiving to God. It reflects His daily bread from the Lord. So where are you planted, who are you with, and what do you produce is all related to your Prayer and Spiritual Life.
The psalmist declared,” Blessed is the one who does not walk in step with the wicked or stand in the way that sinners take or sit in the company of mockers, but whose delight is in the law of the Lord, and who meditates on his law day and night. That person is like a tree planted by streams of water, which yields its fruit in season and whose leaf does not wither— whatever they do prospers.” Psalms 1:1-3. Many Christians do not realised that we will all be hold accountable to the Words we used in life at the throne of judgement so what defile us is not what goes into our mouth but what comes out of it. Matthew 15:11. Discernment of spirits come from discernment of Words. Words are powerful to bring curses or blessings and it can bring changes to atmosphere and environment both spiritually and physically. It can bring destruction or salvation to a family, community and Nation. To make a change in our words, our lives, our workplace and our family is to build a strong Prayer life like Christ. Glory to God!
Prayer: O Lord my God, let the fire on my prayer altar be never be smouldered, let my heart be consecrated and let the words of my mouth be always to praise you in good and bad times. Guard my heart and my tongue that in all I say and do is to give you glory and be a testimony for Christ. Humble my heart and discipline my flesh to seek you first your kingdom and your righteousness in prayer, in Jesus' Name, Amen.
