22 Feb 2022: THE BELIEVER’S ADVANTAGE (2) – 1 Corinthians 2:9-11, Isaiah 30:21

Divine direction is another advantage of the believer. As a believer, you have access to revelation. Access to revelation differentiates the born-again man from the man that is not born again. Once you get the revelation of God, you can always start from where you are to succeed and to do what you are here to do.

When a man lacks divine direction, life looks mysterious and difficult. While the Christian is starting from the answer, working the problems out, every other person is working from the problem. You will remember that in your college or secondary school mathematics, if you know the answer to a question, the rest is easy.  The Holy Ghost inside you gives you answers and if you are not lazy, you will make it. He guides the believers into all truth.

The child of God starts with a prayer to get directions, not praying to solve problems or to attack the devil. You cannot perform in life better than the preparation you put into it. If you believe that prayer alone will make you successful, you are a spiritual gambler. People begin to fail, not in prayer, but from their preparation or lack thereof. If you are not working hard, you are like a person with a Ph.D. applying for a job with a secondary school certificate. You have education, bring it to the table; you have talent, bring it to the table; you have skills, bring it to the table.

PRAYER: I receive heightened sensitivity in the spirit to walk in my advantage as a Christian.

Leviticus 13:1-59, Mark 6:1-29, Psalm 39:1-13, Proverbs 10:10
