A baby was born; many years later, he became a grown-up and successful man; he picked a beautiful woman he loved and introduced her to his parents. They all gathered their family and friends together and joined the two young couples in marriage. The entire family were very happy, and there was joy everywhere. I Am the Almighty God. I love what’s good. He who chooses the path of good loves his life, but he who chooses the path of sin hates his life and loves death.
The young couple were very happy, and they started living their lives. Not very long, children started coming, and the whole house was full up. The couple now had more responsibility on their shoulder. Every soul that chooses good, good will follow him, and every soul that chooses the path of sin, destruction will follow him. I Am the Almighty God, and My Word will never return to Me empty.
The young man was a loving husband and father. His wife and children loved him so much and were always happy whenever he was around, and they always missed him wherever he was away. As time passed by, he was promoted, and more responsibility was handed over to him. He had to spend more time at work to the detriment of his family. Sometimes, he wouldn’t come home until late. The children who were constantly eager for his return were already asleep before he got home. The family had no time to pray and reason together anymore. Everything began drifting apart gradually.
At one point, his wife became very concerned because of what she was seeing. She complained to her husband about his constant absence from home. He couldn’t help it because of the much responsibility which was handed over to him at work. The enemy began taking advantage of them. With the help of his wife’s prayer, I stepped into their situation. He sat back and thought everything repeatedly, and he made his choice. He resigned and sought another job. I love those who love Me, those who obey My Commandments.
Many of you love your own way more than Mine. You love the way of the world more than the lives I’ve given to you to look after. Waywardness begins in a family. The street didn’t give birth to any child. Every child was given birth to in a family. If the family is good and peaceful, it will reflect in the lives of the children. If the family is not good, it will also reflect in the lives of the children. When the young man saw that disgrace was knocking on his door, he quickly returned to his lovely family and forsook his job. If you hold on to what you love, you will have to exchange it for what I love. You cannot keep both. One must leave for the other to remain.
Every step you take away from My will is a step towards disgrace. Satan is ready to disgrace you any moment. Not only to disgrace you but to destroy you as well. If you’re sensitive to My Spirit in you, you’ll be able to set your priority right. Many of My children have lost their lives and family because of what they love. They couldn’t say no to their will; instead, they said yes to their own will and said no to Mine. No one can disgrace Me unless he disgraces himself!
The desire of a man, if not of God, will lead him to his own ruin quicker than he can imagine. The path of the righteous is ordered by the Almighty and wisdom is profitable to the soul, and it is strength to the bone of the wise. He who lays down his plan and excludes the Almighty from it has his own destiny in his hands, and he can crash down any moment without warning.
The blessing of the Lord is not measured by what we can see because that which is invisible is more powerful than that which is visible. Every blessing the Father bestowed upon His children is invisible, not visible. Therefore, Satan is cheating so many children of the Father by using that which is visible to entice them away from that which is invisible. The Father is a Spirit, and those who desire to walk with Him must walk by faith alone and must be spiritual. Any man who fails to understand the things of the Spirit can be easily enticed away from the path of righteousness.
As children of the Father, whichever step we take out of the Father’s will is a step towards disgrace. God forbid that we should be disgraced! The Father has given us freedom through the suffering He bestowed upon our Lord and Saviour on the cross. Therefore, before taking any action, we must consider the outcome of each of our actions before embarking on them. The Father is a blessed Father, and every son and daughter He has are blessed as well. But we must be very careful what we put our hands on.
As each day passes by, the children of the Father acquire more knowledge upon knowledge. Acquiring knowledge is not a sin, but the kind of knowledge we acquire could either be of the Father or of Satan. We all know that everything of Satan is contrary to that which is of the Father. This is where we need to allow Holy Spirit to lead us in every step we take. May the grace of Him who called you out of darkness be with you and remove every scale from your eyes so that you can see the road ahead of you more clearly. Amen! May the Lord give you the grace to walk with Him in Jesus' name.
