CHEERFUL COVENANT DEVOTIONAL.
DATE: WEDNESDAY, JULY 2020.
WORD FOR THOUGHT: “ANYTHING EXPOSED PREMATURELY STANDS THE RISK OF BEING ABORTED
TOPIC: CERTAIN THINGS ARE BETTER KEPT SECRET.
TEXT: LUKE 2:19 “But Mary treasured up all these things and pondered them in her heart.
It is not enough conceiving a revelation, but it is most blessed in managing it. It’s always nice having a secret. There are times when you will have to keep your intentions, dreams or goal in your heart, especially when they are still at the maturity stage.I Have discovered that most of the dreams, intentions and revelations you disclose to people most of the times do not come to fruition. Keeping certain things to yourself momentarily, is not only an expression of godly wisdom ; it keeps you away from dangers of the enemy and it makes you warm, smug and glowing. The mouth of the wise is rooted in their heart, while the heart of fools are in their mouth. Any destiny or vision exposed before the appointed time stands the chance of suffering demonic attack. Satan does not have the right to fight what is kept in the heart; he can only manipulate and abort what has been let out of the heart.
You will never know the mind of people concerning you, until they discover that you have a dream that has transformational power of turning your life around for good and the capacity of impacting your generation positively. If you go around broadcasting what is still in the making, there will be people around who will get jealous and stop at nothing to put you off.
The devil dose not fight what he doesn’t know, but what he is very aware. When you constantly let your intentions out, you power the devil for an attack. You create an avenue for the devil to operate.
I was privilege to counsel a sister who was hurt by her friend. The story had it that she was loosed in telling her friend everything that was going on between she and the supposed fiance, Which latter turned out for her hurt. she never knew that her friend have had her way into the life of her fiance, to the extent of becoming pregnant for him. When she notice the sudden changed of attitude in her fiance towards her, quickly; she visited her fiance’s house without his consent. Eventually on her visit ,she stumbled on her friend who had taking dominance of the young man, she wept bitterly and uncontrollable. At this point it was dawn on her that she was the cause of her predicament, and it has become too late for her to do little or nothing. she realised that her friend capitalized on the things she told her it was quite too late for her to turn back the hands of time.
It is highly poisonous for you to unleash the matters of your heart to everyone; it becomes more suicidal when the person do not have the Spirit of God. Such a People are ready to kill, slander and persecute, the moment they uncover the matters of your heart. I have seen dreams aborted, I have seen life terminated and many more like that on the ground of premature exposure.
Anytime you fail to manage your dreams or intentions maturely you will pay for it. Joseph’s challenge was not firstly his brethren but his inability to manage his dreams. He was premature in handling the ultimate future God had showed him. If not for the mercies of God the brethren of Joseph almost terminated the dream. ;And Joseph dreamed a dream, and he told it to his brethren; and they hated him yet the more…. ( Genesis 37:5).
As Mary received the divine information about her mysterious pregnancy and the warnings that followed, the scripture says she kept all these in her heart. This a deep revelation of life.
Are you planning to travel? Have you just conceived? Has God give you a productive idea? Things like these are better kept secret momentarily, for it is better for it to be seen at maturity,than saying it before maturity, unless otherwise instructed by God. Perhaps it is the source of your unending physical and spiritual battles. Therefore, this message is a wake up call for you to be careful and conscious of the fact that not everyone that smiles at you really loves you.
God’s intention concerning your life shall grow to fruition. Those out to abort you divine conception of ideas,visions and destiny is hereby arrested by fire.
# THOSE WHO ARE OUT TO TAKE MY SECRET TO HURT ME SHALL FALL, IJN.
# I RECEIVE GRACE TO BE A CUSTODIAN OF DIVINE PRIVILEGED INFORMATION IJN,
# ALL GIVEN TO ME BY GOD IS PRESERVED IJN, AMEN.
