Bible Reading: 1 Samuel 24: 4-7

Memory VerseNo one can deny that the more important person blesses the less important person. Hebrews 7:7 (GWT)

On a particular day, a revered man of God drove out of his estate when a young man saw him. The way he was waving made the Pastor to stop by to greet him. He used the opportunity to quicky tell the man of God of small business just nearby. With so much joy in his heart, the Pastor decided to go to his shop to bless and dedicate it. While praying over his business, the only thing he found coming out of my mouth was “Safety! Safety!! Safety!!!” The following day something happened. While the brother was in his shop working, he suddenly felt the impulse to step out. The moment he stepped out, a car in reverse gear ran over his shop. The brake of the vehicle had failed.

That could have been the end of the young man, but God had seen it ahead and released a word ahead. That was a young man with honour in his heart. That honour gave birth to a blessing for his preservation. Please don’t down play the role of honour to God and His anointed. I hope you have not joined the community of those who look for the weaknesses in the lives of men of God. Let me tell you something. You will always find one. The humanity in their divinity will always pop up once in a while. Wisdom demands that you look past that and FOCUS ONLY on the grace of God upon their lives.

Moses had a weakness, yet God used him. David had a weakness, yet God used him as a mighty deliverer in Israel. From Gideon to Solomon and to Esther, God used them despite their obvious weaknesses. A grace you depise, you can never partake from it. Anything you despise, you cannot attract. Leave God and His servants, He has a way of correcting them with His rod when He so decides. He is just towards all. “He allowed no one to oppress them; he rebuked kings on their behalf: (CSB) Saying, ‘Do not touch My anointed ones, And do My prophets no harm (NKJV).'” (Psalm 105: 14-15).

God had written off king Saul; and despite king Saul’s rejection, he kept aiming for the life of David. Yet, David had no spiritual or moral reason to kill Saul or do him harm. “For the [resentful, deep-seated] anger of man does not produce the righteousness of God [that standard of behaviour which He requires from us].” James 1:20 (AMP). Again, though Eli and his two children had broken the edge of the covenant of priesthood, Samuel still had to take some tutorials  from him. Honour to God, His chosen servants, your parents, teachers, guardians, and any other spiritual authority over you, despite their errors or human weakness(es) will preserve your destiny.

Quote: Honour to God and men will preserve your destiny.

Prophetic Decree: I command the voice of your flesh to die that you may follow the will of God, in Jesus name.
