PRAISE & WORSHIP
FIRE SCRIPTURE: James 4:1-8
1 Do you know where your fights and arguments come from? They come from the selfish desires that make war inside you. 2 You want things, but you don’t get them. So you kill and are jealous of others. But you still cannot get what you want. So you argue and fight. You don’t get what you want because you don’t ask God.
3 Or when you ask, you don’t receive anything, because the reason you ask is wrong. You only want to use it for your own pleasure.
4 You people are not faithful to God! You should know that loving what the world has is the same as hating God. So anyone who wants to be friends with this evil world becomes God’s enemy.
5 Do you think the Scriptures mean nothing? The Scriptures say, “The Spirit God made to live in us wants us only for himself.” 6 But the kindness God shows is greater. As the Scripture says, “God is against the proud, but he is kind to the humble.”
7 So give yourselves to God. Stand against the devil, and he will run away from you. 8 Come near to God and he will come near to you. You are sinners, so clean sin out of your lives. You are trying to follow God and the world at the same time. Make your thinking pure.
MFM Daily Devotional 6th November 2023 MONDAY MESSAGE:
Beloved, you must make drawing close to God a priority in your life.
Another way to draw closer to God is through prayer. Our memory verse for today says that when we seek the Lord with all our hearts, we will find Him. That means that to find God, you must pant after Him and chase Him passionately. He rewards those who diligently seek Him. In James 4:8, the Bible says, “Draw nigh to God, and He will draw nigh to you. Cleanse your hands, ye sinners; and purify your hearts, ye double minded.”
Remember Abraham, everywhere he went, he built an altar unto the Lord. He had a firm communication line with the Lord. And because of this, God would not do anything except He had communicated with Abraham. If Abraham was not a man of prayer, it would have been impossible for him to be called the father of faith. He had a unique relationship with God; God called him a friend.
Another way to draw closer to God is fellowshipping with the brethren. It is sad to know that many do not regard the assembly of brethren anymore. The apostles always gathered together to pray and every time they did, great signs and wonders manifested. Proverbs 27:17, “Iron sharpeneth iron; so a man sharpeneth the countenance of his friend.” At the Upper Room, the disciples gathered in one accord and the Holy Ghost came on them with lots of gifts and power to preach His gospel.
Another way to draw closer to God is through humility. No proud man can encounter the Lord, let alone have anything to do with Him and for Him. Once pride comes in, the Holy Spirit goes and once He goes, destruction follows.
Finally, Beloved, you can get closer to God through evangelism. God loves that we go out and tell people about Him. There is joy in heaven for every sinner that repents (Luke 15:7). John 15:16 says, “Ye have not chosen me, but I have chosen you, and ordained you, that ye should go and bring forth fruit, and that your fruit should remain: that whatsoever ye shall ask of the Father in my Name, He may give it you.”
