14 June 2024: ALWAYS DO THINGS FOR THE RIGHT REASONS – 1 Samuel 1:1-11, Proverbs 20:6

Whatever you are doing in the kingdom, you must make sure you are doing them for the right reasons. God judges our motives faster than our actions. God is concerned with the why behind our actions. Our reasons must tally with God’s own reasons.

Sometimes we make a request from God that may not tally with God’s own reason for that same thing.

If you look at Hannah in the Bible, she was asking for a son not because she had a revelation of God’s purpose at that time. God had set his eye on Hannah to birth the next major prophet and judge in Israel and Hannah didn’t know that. You could be chosen without knowing that you are chosen, and you could be agitating for things that God intends to do in your life, in the wrong way.

When Hannah said, “God give me a son, and I’ll give the son back to you”. God said, “Yes now our purposes have coincided.” I want a son that I can control his development. I am looking for a prophet, and I have chosen you to give me that prophet”. But she didn’t know what she was chosen for; she was trying to take her identity from her barrenness instead of taking her identity from her choice in God.

Prov. 20:6 says, “Every man proclaims his own goodness: a faithful man who can find?” You may proclaim your own goodness, but God weighs the actions. When God weighs our actions, He weighs the motives behind them.

PRAYER: Lord, help me to daily align my will to your will and to settle for your Will above my will always.

1 Kings 12:20-13:34, Acts 9:26-43, Psalm 132:1-18, Proverbs 17:6
