Our Responsibility to God's Word

A Promise For You From Bible Promises:

Topic: Our Responsibility to God's Word [30/08/2016]

Then Elisha said, Hear ye the word of the LORD; Thus saith the LORD, tomorrow about this time shall a measure of fine flour be sold for a shekel, and two measures of barley for a shekel, in the gate of Samaria. 2 Kings 7:1. Read: 2 kings 7:16-20

Our primary responsibility to God's Word after hearing or studying it is to believe it wholeheartedly. No matter how impossible that situation might seem, wisdom and faith (like prophet Ezekiel answered God at the valley of dry bones) is needed to respond to God. When we waver in our faith, we lose our blessings. Like James put it, "For let not that man think that he shall receive any thing of the Lord". Jas 2:7.

Joyce Meyer's daily devotional August 30, 2016 – Don’t Waste Time


Topic: Don’t Waste Time [August 30, 2016]

Look carefully then how you walk! Live purposefully and worthily and accurately, not as the unwise and witless, but as wise (sensible, intelligent people), making the very most of the time [buying up each opportunity]… - Ephesians 5:15-16

We need to be so self-controlled that we don’t waste time. That doesn’t mean that we can never do anything fun. It doesn’t mean we can’t do things that we enjoy.

DCLM Daily Manna August 30, 2016 by Pastor Kumuyi - More than the Bargain


Topic: More than the Bargain [August 30, 2016]

Text: 2 Kings 4:8-17

Key Verse: "And the woman conceived, and bare a son at that season that Elisha had said unto her, according to the time of life" (2 Kings 4:17).

William Colgate of the famous Colgate Toothpaste discovered this truth early in life that we usually get more than we give to God and keyed into it. He felt the urge to tithe because he recognised that God was the Giver of all that he possessed, not only of opportunity, but even of the elements which were used in the manufacture of his products. William Colgate not merely tithed one-tenth of the earnings of Colgate's soap products; but he gave two-tenths, then three-tenths, and finally five-tenths of all his income to the work of God in the world. Today, the blessings he received have outlived him.
