1 Kings 18:21 KJV And Elijah came unto all the people, and said, HOW LONG HALT YE BETWEEN TWO OPINIONS? if the LORD be God, follow him: but if Baal, then follow him. And the people answered him not a word.
That’s also my question to us all this morning.
How long will you choose between Christianity and religion?
How long will you keep deceiving yourself?
How long will you keep kissing and singing to God with the same lips?
How long dear sister?
How long dear brother?
Let today be the deciding day.
Choose between God and Baal.
Choose between good and evil.
Choose between your destiny an five minutes pleasure!
How long do you want to keep wallowing in that sin?
How long do you want to remain in that wrong relationship?
Nothing will really happen until you take a stand. Until you become restless, until you become tired of the status quo, it will be business as usual.
The weekend is here. You don’t have to pack your bag and go visit him. You don’t have to leave your studies and go cook for a man, no, you don’t have to.
You have the power to say no. You have victory over sin. You have mastery over your body.
Gen 27:40 KJV And by thy sword shalt thou live, and shalt serve thy brother; and it shall come to pass WHEN THOU SHALT HAVE THE DOMINION, that thou shalt break his yoke from off thy neck.
I know you want to serve God wholeheartedly. I know you love God genuinely. You are however the determinant of your day of deliverance. The day you choose to have dominion over that situation is the day you will be free.
Genesis 27:40 (NET) You will live by your sword but you will serve your brother. WHEN YOU GROW RESTLESS, you will tear off his yoke from your neck.”
Do you know why you are still rising and falling in your Christian race? You’ve not grown restless. You’ve not gotten tired of the situation. Have you seen a Landlord chase a defaulting tenant out of his house? He simply got tired of the situation. You are the Landlord of your life. You need to chase some tenants out, especially those living in your house for free. But the question is; are you restless?
Genesis 27:40 (BBE) By your sword will you get your living and you will be your brother’s servant; BUT WHEN YOUR POWER IS INCREASED his yoke will be broken from off your neck.
When your power is increased…you can see you have power over that habitual sin, you just need an increase. This period of fasting is a wonderful avenue to increase power. Plug into it.
No matter how long that issue has been, all you need is an increase in power.
I remember trying to push a car few days back. It was difficult because I was going against gravity; pushing it up a slope. Then a man joined me. Then two ladies joined us. Then a young man joined us. At every stage, there was an increase in the power used in pushing that car. Likewise at every stage of your life, there is a required amount of power needed for you to progress.
When you fast, you may not necessarily grow bigger, in fact, you may loose some weight, but you will increase in power.
Take advantage of this waiting period and use it to your advantage. You may not have another of such opportunity anytime soon.
