COVETOUS THINKING – 1

Let your conversation be without covetousness; and be content with such things as you have: for he has said, I will never leave thee, nor forsake thee.

HEBREWS 13:5

The Lord was teaching me one day about covetous thinking and covetousness; and he said, “There is a difference between covetous thinking and covetousness. Covetousness wants something that belongs to someone else. In the book of Exodus, the Bible said: "Thou shalt not covet thy neighbour’s goods”. But the Lord told me, “That is not what I am talking about.” Apostle Paul warned us about the end time in the book of 2 Tim. 3:1 and he talked about the fact that in the end time perilous times shall come.

We are living in the days of Babylon and all the signs that talk about the end time are being fulfilled in our days. Apostle Paul said that when you see these signs, it means that the end is near; it does not mean that the end has come but it is very near. Men will be lovers of themselves. I said Lord, you don’t want me to love myself. He said, “There is nothing wrong in loving yourself but if you love yourself at the expense of loving me, it becomes dangerous.

I have just begun the journey of covetous thinking; it is different from covetousness. Most of you will not want what belongs to others but you have a certain mindset about it. You can criticize everything someone has why? It’s all because of covetous thinking.

PRAYER:

• Pray and ask God to help you appreciate the success of other people (Rom. 12:15)

• There is nothing wrong in loving yourself but not at the expense of loving God.

Main Text:
Acts 13:22
22 And when he had removed him, he raised up unto them David to be their king; to whom also he gave testimony, and said, I have found David the son of Jesse, a man after mine own heart, which shall fulfil all my will.From yesterday's devotional, we know that Without  purpose, life  is meaningless  and  unfulfilling. It is important for you to discover the purpose for which you were created,  blessed  and  anointed, and that God definitely created you for a purpose. God  anoints  you for a purpose.  Purpose  is  the  reason for the anointing.  Without purpose the anointing is either  wasted or abused. It is needful to also note that God  anoints people for a  purpose.You are  anointed to serve God  and touch people’s lives.  A powerful anointing  produces supernatural  results in others. God  anointed King David,  a  man after His…

Main Text:Genesis 1:28And God blessed them, and God said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth,  and subdue it: and have dominion over the fish of  the sea, and over the fowl  of the air, and over every living thing that moveth  upon the earth.The Oxford dictionary  defines “purpose” as the reason for which something is done or created or for which something exists. Without purpose, life  is meaningless and unfulfilling. It is important for you to discover the purpose for which you were created,  blessed and anointed.  Purpose is not the prerogative of  a privileged few in the world – everybody should know his or her purpose in life.God created you for a purpose. He created  Adam and Eve and gave them the divine mandate to rule the universe and make the earth productive (Genesis 1:28). The  earth has great potential but it takes human beings to …

The Seven Spirits of God By Rev Eastwood Anaba

Topic: The Seven Spirits of God
Scripture Reading:
Isaiah 11:1-2; Luke 4:1-19
Main Text:
Revelation 4:5
5 And out of the throne proceeded lightnings and thunderings and voices: and there were seven lamps of fire burning before the throne, which are the seven Spirits of God.
In  Isaiah  11:1-2, the  prophet Isaiah describes the seven-fold nature of the Spirit of the LORD who would rest on the Messiah. The Holy Ghost rests upon you with His perfect nature to subdue your human nature. His seven-fold nature overwrites your human inadequacies. His nature is superior to your human nature. He is what and who you are not. He does what you cannot do and gives what you cannot give.
In the book of  Revelation, John referred to the seven Spirits of God (Revelation 4:5). There is only one Holy Ghost so the term seven Spirits of God refers to the seven-fold character of the Holy Ghost. There is one Spirit with a seven-fold characterisation. Isaiah 11…
