Knowing JESUS Daily Devotional | March 1, 2020. Enrich and Sustain your relationship with Jesus reading our daily devotional  Genesis 12:10-15 – And there was a famine in the land: and Abram went down into Egypt to sojourn there; for the famine was grievous in the land. And it came to pass, when he was come near to enter into Egypt, that he said unto Sarai his wife, Behold now, I know that thou art a fair woman to look upon: Therefore it shall come to pass, when the Egyptians shall see thee, that they shall say, This is his wife: and they will kill me, but they will save thee alive. Say, I pray thee, thou art my sister: that it may be well with me for thy sake; and my soul shall live because of thee.  And it came to pass, that, when Abram was come into Egypt, the Egyptians beheld the woman that she was very fair. The princes also of Pharaoh saw her, and commended her before Pharaoh: and the woman was taken into Pharaoh’s house.
Genesis 16:1-2  Now Sarai Abram’s wife bare him no children: and she had an handmaid, an Egyptian, whose name was Hagar. And Sarai said unto Abram, Behold now, the Lord hath restrained me from bearing: I pray thee, go i Lord said unto Moses, Wherefore criest thou unto me? speak unto the children of Israel, that they go forward:

Beloved, glory and honor to our loving Father in heaven, who  hath done wondrously  for  you in particular, bringing you to the new month of March ,2020.
Because He brought you in particular to this new month, you shall march forward in every facets of your life, this month and beyond in Jesus name.

Exo 14:15  And the Lord said unto Moses, Wherefore criest thou unto me? speak unto the children of Israel, that they go forward:

Beloved, Abraham made two major costly mistakes in his life, that you must learn from and avoid as a wise person.

Pro 9:12  If thou be wise, thou shalt be wise for thyself:but if thou scornest, thou alone shalt bear it.

Romans 15:4  For whatsoever things were written aforetime were written for our learning, that we through patience and comfort of the scriptures might have hope.

1Co 10:11 — 1Co 10:12  Now all these things happened unto them for ensamples: and they are written for our admonition, upon whom the ends of the world are come. Wherefore let him that thinketh he standeth take heed lest he fall.

The first one after heeding the call of God to depart from idolatry and he did.  He experienced famine and he  self managed  himself and got into serious problem, that if God did not wade into it, it would have caused him, lifetime set back. See it.

Gen 12:10 — Gen 12:15 And there was a famine in the land: and Abram went down into Egypt to sojourn there; for the famine was grievous in the land. And it came to pass, when he was come near to enter into Egypt, that he said unto Sarai his wife, Behold now, I know that thou art a fair woman to look upon: Therefore it shall come to pass, when the Egyptians shall see thee, that they shall say, This is his wife: and they will kill me, but they will save thee alive. Say, I pray thee, thou art my sister: that it may be well with me for thy sake; and my soul shall live because of thee.  And it came to pass, that, when Abram was come into Egypt, the Egyptians beheld the woman that she was very fair. The princes also of Pharaoh saw her, and commended her before Pharaoh: and the woman was taken into Pharaoh’s house.

Beloved, as a believer, you should be careful not to be self managing your life, without recourse to God.
Always remember this, all believers and ministers are blind and prone to making costly mistakes.

Isa 42:16  And I will bring the blind by a way that they knew not;I will lead them in paths that they have not known:I will make darkness light before them,and crooked things straight.These things will I do unto them, and not forsake them.

God has promised to lead the blind. That is, He would provide you with right guidance, so reach out to Him and save yourself, lifetime avoidable pains.

Isaiah 42:19  Who is blind, but my servant? or deaf, as my messenger that I sent? who is blind as he that is perfect, and blind as the Lord’s servant?

See, Samuel the prophet would have made a great blunder in appointing a king for the nation of Israel. It took the prompt intervention of God to avert it. So always seek the Lord for guidance, before taking any decision in your life, to avoid lifetime costly mistakes.

1Sa 16:6 — 1Sa 16:7  And it came to pass, when they were come, that he looked on Eliab, and said, Surely the Lord’s anointed is before him. But the Lord said unto Samuel, Look not on his countenance, or on the height of his stature; because I have refused him: for the Lord seeth not as man seeth; for man looketh on the outward appearance, but the Lord looketh on the heart.

Beloved, see several promises from God to provide you needed guidance. Take advantage of them.

Psalms 32:8  I will instruct thee and teach thee in the way which thou shalt go: I will guide thee with mine eye.

 

Psalms 50:15  And call upon me in the day of trouble: I will deliver thee, and thou shalt glorify me.

Jeremiah 33:3  Call unto me, and I will answer thee, and shew thee great and mighty things, which thou knowest not.

Isa 48:17 — Isa 48:18  Thus saith the Lord, thy Redeemer, the Holy One of Israel; I am the Lord thy God which teacheth thee to profit, which leadeth thee by the way that thou shouldest go.  O that thou hadst hearkened to my commandments! then had thy peace been as a river, and thy righteousness as the waves of the sea:

The second major mistake Abraham made, the whole world have not recovered from it. This mistake of Abraham shall remain a major problem untill the end of the age. See it.
Prior to this time, God had promised Abraham a son. The impatience of Sarah made her to wrongly counsel her husband and Abraham consented.

Gen 15:1 — Gen 15:4  After these things the word of the Lord came unto Abram in a vision, saying, Fear not, Abram: I am thy shield, and thy exceeding great reward. And Abram said, Lord God, what wilt thou give me, seeing I go childless, and the steward of my house is this Eliezer of Damascus? And Abram said, Behold, to me thou hast given no seed: and, lo, one born in my house is mine heir. And, behold, the word of the Lord came unto him, saying, This shall not be thine heir; but he that shall come forth out of thine own bowels shall be thine heir.

Gen 16:1 — Gen 16:2  Now Sarai Abram’s wife bare him no children: and she had an handmaid, an Egyptian, whose name was Hagar. And Sarai said unto Abram, Behold now, the Lord hath restrained me from bearing: I pray thee, go in unto my maid; it may be that I may obtain children by her. And Abram hearkened to the voice of Sarai.

This was how Ishmael was born. All over the world Ishmael the Mohammedan troubling Issac, the Israeli of God.  All over the world , the moslems Jihadist are fighting and killing Christians.
This was because Abraham after he had heard from God, harkened to Sarah.
Beloved, after you have heard from God through His words in the Bible, most times on any issue, do not harken to anyone whoever they are, that might want to counsel you contrary to the revealed will of God.
This was the undoing of Adam. He harkened to Eve and was driven out of the garden of Eden, God’s paradise on earth.

Gen 3:17 — Gen 3:20  And unto Adam he said, Because thou hast hearkened unto the voice of thy wife, and hast eaten of the tree, of which I commanded thee, saying, Thou shalt not eat of it: cursed is the ground for thy sake; in sorrow shalt thou eat of it all the days of thy life; Thorns also and thistles shall it bring forth to thee; and thou shalt eat the herb of the field; In the sweat of thy face shalt thou eat bread, till thou return unto the ground; for out of it wast thou taken: for dust thou art, and unto dust shalt thou return. And Adam called his wife’s name Eve; because she was the mother of all living.

Beloved, see the right attitude you should have, when from the Bible or through revelations from the Lord to you on any issue.
See the Rechabites. God used Jeremiah to test them contrary to what their father taught them.
They stuck to what their father taught them and God blessed them.

Jer 35:1 — Jer 35:6  The word which came unto Jeremiah from the Lord in the days of Jehoiakim the son of Josiah king of Judah, saying, Go unto the house of the Rechabites, and speak unto them, and bring them into the house of the Lord, into one of the chambers, and give them wine to drink. Then I took Jaazaniah the son of Jeremiah, the son of Habaziniah, and his brethren, and all his sons, and the whole house of the Rechabites; And I brought them into the house of the Lord, into the chamber of the sons of Hanan, the son of Igdaliah, a man of God, which was by the chamber of the princes, which was above the chamber of Maaseiah the son of Shallum, the keeper of the door: And I set before the sons of the house of the Rechabites pots full of wine, and cups, and I said unto them, Drink ye wine. But they said, We will drink no wine: for Jonadab the son of Rechab our father commanded us, saying, Ye shall drink no wine, neither ye, nor your sons for ever:

Jer 35:18 — Jer 35:19  And Jeremiah said unto the house of the Rechabites, Thus saith the Lord of hosts, the God of Israel; Because ye have obeyed the commandment of Jonadab your father, and kept all his precepts, and done according unto all that he hath commanded you: Therefore thus saith the Lord of hosts, the God of Israel; Jonadab the son of Rechab shall not want a man to stand before me for ever.

The reason why God blessed them was because, God requireth from you at all times, wholehearted  prompt  obedience.

1Sa 15:22 — 1Sa 15:23  And Samuel said, Hath the Lord as great delight in burnt offerings and sacrifices, as in obeying the voice of the Lord? Behold, to obey is better than sacrifice, and to hearken than the fat of rams. For rebellion is as the sin of witchcraft, and stubbornness is as iniquity and idolatry. Because thou hast rejected the word of the Lord, he hath also rejected thee from being king.

Psalms 119:60  I made haste, and delayed not to keep thy commandments.

Jeremiah 7:23  But this thing commanded I them, saying, Obey my voice, and I will be your God, and ye shall be my people: and walk ye in all the ways that I have commanded you, that it may be well unto you.

Beloved, perhaps you have taken decision outside of God through self management. Do not do so again. Always seek guidance before taking any decision on any issue.
Also, after you have heard from God on any issue, don’t hearken to any one sympathizing with you and misleading you.
