Early this year in one of my recent travelling to the North, anytime we were almost at the checkpoint I will caution the people making calls cos you don’t receive calls at checkpoint. In fact if my phone rings at that time, I won’t pick it. There was one checkpoint we got to that the Soldier delayed us cos one of us threw sachet water nylon at the checkpoint.. We kept begging and later they left us. As we moved again,we got to another checkpoint and the soldier told me to smile but I was tired.. I managed to smile so they wouldn’t delay us again.. 😄😄 The caution was just there till we almost got to our destination. As I sat in the car the spirit of God said to me if this was the way we had fear and reverence for the God we are serving and profess to love then it should reflect in us..😫😫😫
But because we think this God is not visible like soldiers that are carrying gun we tend to behave anyhow. But don’t forget that God is a consuming fire… A reverence for God is a deep respect with awe, let it sink deeply in your life and being.There are some things you dare not do in front of a military man..😏
If a military man asks you to read a book and your phone rings, you wont not pick the call. But many pick the calls during quiet time, chat-pray …smiles🤣🤣🤣 you may even give excuse its a business call but eskeez me can you try it in front of a soldier that told you to read the book..
You dip your hands into money that is not yours and you take it..if a soldier was there as it was been counted will you take it???😠😠😠
Joseph said how will I do this and sin against God???? If a soldier was right beside the bed will you pick that Lady and rape her??🤔🤔🤔
Just the appearance of a military man will reset your brain from some many things..🏃🏽♀🏃🏽♀🏃🏽♀ So if this can be done by an earthly man,what about God that is everywhere,every time and sees everything…
If a military man asks you to park, you park quickly cos you are afraid of him firing bullets at your tyre.. What of the instructions God gave you and you still disobey and you did it your own..
Our reverence for God should go beyond our respect for our fear of any man… Don’t live your life in pretense. Have a deep consciousness to please God whether man is there or not… Have a mindset that he is everywhere with you.. Always see him standing as the military man,checking how you will behave..see him putting your life in order and make sure you do the correct thing in your daily life..obey him, see God in people and treat them with reverence to God…. In all aspects of our lives we must continually reverence him…
It is dangerous to become to palsy with God or show disrespect…let us reverence our God realizing how great he is.. A God very terrible in the council of the holy ones to be feared above all of them that are round about him..
May God help us
