Topic: Taking Sides with God
[Seeds of Destiny 23 January 2019 Devotional]
Scripture: And when Moses saw that the people were naked; (for Aaron had made them naked unto their shame among their enemies:) Then Moses stood in the gate of the camp, and said, Who is on the Lord’s side? let him come unto me. And all the sons of Levi gathered themselves together unto him. Exodus 32:25-26.
Thought For The Day: To be dedicated to God is to go up in life.
Dedication to God is the secret of flying high with God. People who are dedicated to God cannot remain low on the earth. To be dedicated to God is to go up in life.
The question is, what does it mean to be dedicated to God?
Dedication to God means taking sides with God.
Now, what does it mean to take sides with God?
i. Standing with God (1 Kings 17:1)
Taking sides with God means standing with God when the majority of people are standing with the enemy of God; it is standing with God when the majority of people are standing with the world. When a person is dedicated to God, he is on God’s side when every other person is on the other side.
ii. Identifying with God (Numbers 25:7-8)
Taking sides with God means identifying with God when the majority of people have a different identity contrary to the identity of God. When other people choose to identify with other things, a dedicated person identifies with God.
iii. Making the choice to identify with God irrespective of the cost (Daniel 3:16-20)
People who take sides with God identify with God even if they lose their job, friendship or relationship. One who takes sides with God sticks to God even when people reject them.
Beloved, my counsel is, make up your mind to follow God at all cost.
Remember this: To be dedicated to God is to go up in life.
1.Make up your mind to stand and identify with God at all cost.
Prayer: O Lord, I receive the grace to stand and identify with You at all cost, in Jesus’ Name.
