Morning with Ebenezer


For what profit is it to a man if he gains the whole world, and loses his own soul? Or what will a man give in exchange for his soul?

Matthew 16:26 NKJV

Sometimes you may be tempted to choose things of this world against the things of God. We hear stories of people who wanted to get wealth of this world. They end up selling their souls to the devil that they may gain the temporary wealth of this world.

There are women who gave themselves to powerful men that they may get a chance of better life. We see politicians who use their influences to take advantage of poor people in the society. They tend to increase their wealth through corruption and abuse the power of their offices. They live lavish lives while the majority of their people live in unspoken poverty.

We have preachers who concentrate on showing off their success in terms of material wealth and forget about the spiritual states of the flocks. There is a huge gap between rich and poor in the Church of Jesus Christ. The Church is not paying attention to the poor; ministers are seeking to be rich and famous more than to live according to the will of God.

This morning, I want to encourage you to choose saving your soul. Whatever decision you will encounter in life it will involve both doing what is right and wrong. You need to always choose doing what is right before God even if it doesn't sound right before men. Sometimes what is right may sound old school and odd but if it the will of God will bring forth good fruits.

Read the Bible and follow the example of our Lord Jesus Christ. Learn to let the Holy Spirit of God lead you in the right path. Give a room to the Spirit of God to take control over your life. When you wake up every day learn to surrender everything to Him and let Him be God in your life.

****Morning Prayer****

Pray this prayer with me by faith and God is going to answer your prayer....

Dear Father, I will work hard to do your will in my life. I'm asking for more grace that I may live according to your will in my life. In Jesus' Name, Amen.
