TODAY’S DEVOTION (Tuesday 5th May 2020)
“Your people shall be volunteers in the day of your power; in the beauties of holiness, from the womb of the morning, you have the dew of your youth.” Psalms 110:3 NKJV
WELCOME TO THE 125th DAY OF OUR YEAR OF REJOICING
It does not matter how beautiful a woman may look before men, if she is not living a holy life, she is ugly in God’s sight. Also, it does not matter how handsome and enchanting a man may look, if he is filthy, impure, and sinful, he is ugly in God’s sight.
Holiness is God’s definition of beauty. Every Child of God must understand that and come to terms with it, that is why in our devotional today we will be sharing about the beauties of God’s Holiness.
There is nothing as beautiful as God’s holiness. It is the very environment of Heaven and nature of GOD. That tells me, when GOD enters your life, Holiness as entered your life. That is why the easiest way to overcome sin is to live in GOD and God live in you. Once that synchronicity take place, you are done.
A woman may be looking Old and ugly but when God beautify her with His holiness, you will begin to find it difficult to tell how old she is because she will become younger than her age. The same can be applicable to a man.
I hear prophets telling people to sow seeds to renew their age and they sow; the level of ignorance and exploitation of the saints that is going on in the body of Christ these days is alarming. But thank GOD for the revolution that has begun, at least through some of us. There is hope for the church as Jesus remains in the center of it all.
Age renewal is only possible when God beautifies you with His holiness. That is why even 50-year-Old women gets married and gives birth to Children. At least I have been used of God to see that happen in the life of one. She did not give me any money. Her faith and personal consecration unlocked it for her.
GOD WANT TO BEAUTIFY THE SAINTS WITH THE BEAUTY OF HIS HOLINESS.
The beauty of God’s holiness does not just renew our age, it renews our health and keeps us healthy. That is why sin was presented as the root cause of sicknesses and diseases in James chapter 5:14-16.
God’s Holiness was the garment Adam wore in the Garden of Eden. It was the same garment Eve wore. Satan was so jealous of their attire that he swayed them to do something that stripped them of it – disobedience and eventual loss of intimacy with God. The Bible made it clear that when he was through with the first couple on the face of the earth, they became naked and hide themselves in the trees.
Until you are not clothed with God’s holiness, it does not matter the quality or cost of clothes you may be putting on, you are still naked in the spirit.
If you are naked in the spirit, you will become vulnerable to all evil – your life will begin to move from demonic attack to demonic attack until you are no more. The ugly and the bad will become your companion. People who are naked in the spirit are without covering in the sight of God. Even if they submit to any preacher on earth as a covering, they are still naked in the spirit.
That is why I tell Christians instead of rushing after spiritual coverings get yourself covered with the garments of God’s Holiness first. Authentic spiritual covering will not speak in the lives of the sinful. The beauties of God’s Holiness must cover you first before the covering of a spiritual father. That is why only those who have relationship with the Heavenly Father can find authentic spiritual fathers.
What are we sharing this morning? Without the beauties of God’s Holiness, you are as ugly as the devil himself. You will always need deliverance.
THAT IS WHY GOD SPOKE TO US THROUGH ISAIAH SAYING;
“Awake, awake! Put on your strength, O Zion; Put on your beautiful garments, O Jerusalem, the holy city! For the uncircumcised and the unclean shall no longer come to you.” Isaiah 52:1 NKJV
If you do not want devils to make your life a dwelling place, you must awake and put on your beautiful garment from heaven – the garment of the beauty of God’s holiness. The Bible made it clear in this scripture that for “the uncircumcised and the unclean” to cease coming to you, you must awake and be beautified with the beauty of God’s Holiness.
Now how do you awake? Simple! Awake from all forms of laziness and pursue deep intimacy with Jesus Christ. Deep intimacy will beautify you with God’s Holiness.
Many do not know that Holiness does not really come from man. No man can be Holy by his own strength. Holiness was designed to come from God to man. And the Only place to position for it is in the place of deep intimacy with Jesus Christ not in a fire and brimstone service.
That is why one of the greatest curses in the body of Christ are the messages in the mouth of preachers that lack capacity to push people into deep intimacy with Jesus Christ. People are praying but are not intimate with Christ. Consequently, the beauties of God’s holiness have disappeared from many lives!
As we bring this to a close, I want you to understand that God hates seeing us naked and ugly in the spirit. He wants us clothed and made beautiful by His Holiness, but that will never happen until we come out of our religious shells and begin to pursue His presence through deep intimacy.
The time to shake ourselves from the dust of sin, spiritual laziness, and religion is now!
MAKE THIS SCRIPTURE AN ADDITIONAL MEDITATION FOR THE DAY;
Shake yourself from the dust, arise; Sit down, O Jerusalem! Loose yourself from the bonds of your neck, O captive daughter of Zion! Isaiah 52:2 NKJV
