TAKE NO THOUGHT – KnowingJESUS Daily Devotional

Matthew 6:34. Take therefore no thought for the morrow: for the morrow shall take thought for the things of itself. Sufficient unto the day is the evil thereof.

Beloved, every day you are confronted with taking decisions. Always remember that every decision you take have eternal consequences. Remember it is a step between life and death.

1 Samuel 20:3. And David sware moreover, and said, Thy father certainly knoweth that I have found grace in thine eyes; and he saith, Let not Jonathan know this, lest he be grieved: but truly as the Lord liveth, and as thy soul liveth, there is but a step between me and death.

After death, every humanity shall face eternal judgement.

Hebrews 9:27. And as it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment:

So always weigh your decision in light of the eternity you desire. There are two ways all humanity and that includes you are traversing.

Mat 7:13Mat 7:14. Enter ye in at the strait gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in thereat: Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it.

There are two destinations before everyone and your daily decisions shall lead you to one.

Matthew 25:46. And these shall go away into everlasting punishment: but the righteous into life eternal.

The Bible says sufficient unto each day is the evil thereof.

Matthew 6:34. Take therefore no thought for the morrow: for the morrow shall take thought for the things of itself. Sufficient unto the day is the evil thereof.

Meaning each day of your life is loaded with peculiar challenges. The challenges of each day needed decisions. See how Jacob told Pharaoh about the challenges he had faced in his lifetime. The evil, he referred to in his response were just challenges that he had gone through.

Gen 47:8Gen 47:9. And Pharaoh said unto Jacob, How old art thou? And Jacob said unto Pharaoh, The days of the years of my pilgrimage are an hundred and thirty years: few and evil have the days of the years of my life been, and have not attained unto the days of the years of the life of my fathers in the days of their pilgrimage.

Beloved, you too shall be confronted with peculiar challenges daily and you will need to take decisions to address them. However, always weigh your decisions in the light of eternal destination you desire.

Deuteronomy 32:29. O that they were wise, that they understood this, that they would consider their latter end!

Proverbs 19:20. Hear counsel, and receive instruction, that thou mayest be wise in thy latter end.

See how the following people addressed the challenges that confronted them on a particular day. The decisions they made at that day affected their eternal wellbeing. Please learn from these people and avoid the costly mistakes they made.
1.Adam and Eve
They failed to avoid sin of eaten the forbidden fruit, which brought the calamity of loosen the life of God and the garden of Eden.

Gen 3:6Gen 3:7. And when the woman saw that the tree was good for food, and that it was pleasant to the eyes, and a tree to be desired to make one wise, she took of the fruit thereof, and did eat, and gave also unto her husband with her; and he did eat. And the eyes of them both were opened, and they knew that they were naked; and they sewed fig leaves together, and made themselves aprons.

Genesis 2:15-17. And the Lord God took the man, and put him into the garden of Eden to dress it and to keep it. And the Lord God commanded the man, saying, Of every tree of the garden thou mayest freely eat: But of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, thou shalt not eat of it: for in the day that thou eatest thereof thou shalt surely die.

Genesis 3:23-24. Therefore the Lord God sent him forth from the garden of Eden, to till the ground from whence he was taken. So he drove out the man; and he placed at the east of the garden of Eden Cherubims, and a flaming sword which turned every way, to keep the way of the tree of life.

2. Abraham
He consented to the suggestion of Sarah and Ishmael was born. Then began the ceaseless conflict at the Middle East between Jews and Arabs and Christians and Moslems.

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 in unto my maid; it may be that I may obtain children by her. And Abram hearkened to the voice of Sarai.

Gen 16:12Gen 16:15. And he will be a wild man; his hand will be against every man, and every man’s hand against him; and he shall dwell in the presence of all his brethren. And she called the name of the Lord that spake unto her, Thou God seest me: for she said, Have I also here looked after him that seeth me? Wherefore the well was called Beerlahairoi; behold, it is between Kadesh and Bered. And Hagar bare Abram a son: and Abram called his son’s name, which Hagar bare, Ishmael

3. Rueben
The evil day when he mounted Jacob’s couch and lost the blessing of the first born to Joseph.

Genesis 35:22. And it came to pass, when Israel dwelt in that land, that Reuben went and lay with Bilhah his father’s concubine: and Israel heard it. Now the sons of Jacob were twelve:

Gen 49:3Gen 49:4 Reuben, thou art my firstborn, my might, and the beginning of my strength, the excellency of dignity, and the excellency of power: Unstable as water, thou shalt not excel; because thou wentest up to thy father’s bed; then defiledst thou it: he went up to my couch.

4. Achan
The day He saw and took the forbidden Babylonish garment that led to his been stoned with his family.

Jos 7:19Jos 7:21. And Joshua said unto Achan, My son, give, I pray thee, glory to the Lord God of Israel, and make confession unto him; and tell me now what thou hast done; hide it not from me. And Achan answered Joshua, and said, Indeed I have sinned against the Lord God of Israel, and thus and thus have I done: When I saw among the spoils a goodly Babylonish garment, and two hundred shekels of silver, and a wedge of gold of fifty shekels weight, then I coveted them, and took them; and, behold, they are hid in the earth in the midst of my tent, and the silver under it.

Joshua 7:24-25. And Joshua, and all Israel with him, took Achan the son of Zerah, and the silver, and the garment, and the wedge of gold, and his sons, and his daughters, and his oxen, and his asses, and his sheep, and his tent, and all that he had: and they brought them unto the valley of Achor. And Joshua said, Why hast thou troubled us? the Lord shall trouble thee this day. And all Israel stoned him with stones, and burned them with fire, after they had stoned them with stones.

5. Daniel took a decision that brought him God’s favour for the rest of his life.

Daniel 1:8-9. But Daniel purposed in his heart that he would not defile himself with the portion of the king’s meat, nor with the wine which he drank: therefore he requested of the prince of the eunuchs that he might not defile himself. Now God had brought Daniel into favour and tender love with the prince of the eunuchs.

Daniel 1:21: And Daniel continued even unto the first year of king Cyrus.

Daniel 6:28. So this Daniel prospered in the reign of Darius, and in the reign of Cyrus the Persian.

6. The three Hebrews took decision that brought then earthly and eternal promotion.

Dan 3:15Dan 3:18. Now if ye be ready that at what time ye hear the sound of the cornet, flute, harp, sackbut, psaltery, and dulcimer, and all kinds of musick, ye fall down and worship the image which I have made; well: but if ye worship not, ye shall be cast the same hour into the midst of a burning fiery furnace; and who is that God that shall deliver you out of my hands? Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego, answered and said to the king, O Nebuchadnezzar, we are not careful to answer thee in this matter. If it be so, our God whom we serve is able to deliver us from the burning fiery furnace, and he will deliver us out of thine hand, O king. But if not, be it known unto thee, O king, that we will not serve thy gods, nor worship the golden image which thou hast set up.

Daniel 3:30 Then the king promoted Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego, in the province of Babylon.

Beloved, all these people took the decisions as they were confronted on a particular day. I am persuaded of you that you are a wise person. Be determined henceforth never to take a decision that shall negatively affect your eternal wellbeing. The good Lord shall help you in Jesus name.

Hebrews 3:15. While it is said, To day if ye will hear his voice, harden not your hearts, as in the provocation.

Dearly beloved, Jesus our Lord wants you to live with Him for all eternity. Presently, He had gone to prepare the place and coming back to take His followers and you during the dawning rapture.

John 14:1-3. Let not your heart be troubled: ye believe in God, believe also in me. In my Father’s house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you. And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself; that where I am, there ye may be also.

Apart from this, He took time to pray for all His followers to be where He is.

John 17:24. Father, I will that they also, whom thou hast given me, be with me where I am; that they may behold my glory, which thou hast given me: for thou lovedst me before the foundation of the world.

In addition Jesus promised His followers and that includes you, that , they will reign with Him forever.

Luke 22:28-30. Ye are they which have continued with me in my temptations. And I appoint unto you a kingdom, as my Father hath appointed unto me; That ye may eat and drink at my table in my kingdom, and sit on thrones judging the twelve tribes of Israel.

Revelation 3:21-22. To him that overcometh will I grant to sit with me in my throne, even as I also overcame, and am set down with my Father in his throne.

He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches.
However, Jesus is aware of the peculiar challenges that shall come before all His followers, for which they shall be talking decisions. So He passionately warned them and you in particular, not to take decision that shall jeopardise your eternal wellbeing. The good Lord shall help you take daily right decisions in Jesus name. See His warning.

Matthew 6:34. Take therefore no thought for the morrow: for the morrow shall take thought for the things of itself. Sufficient unto the day is the evil thereof.

Dearly beloved, always take decisions with eternity in view. Do not be swayed with temporal ephemerals. Do not take a decision to gain anything at the expense of your eternal wellbeing.

Matthew 16:26. For what is a man profited, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul? or what shall a man give in exchange for his soul?

Colossians 3:1-4. If ye then be risen with Christ, seek those things which are above, where Christ sitteth on the right hand of God. Set your affection on things above, not on things on the earth. For ye are dead, and your life is hid with Christ in God. When Christ, who is our life, shall appear, then shall ye also appear with him in glory.

See how peculiar daily decisions impacted on the eternal fortunes of the following people. Please be wise.
1. Judas
Sold his eternal wellbeing for the unspent thirty pieces of silver.

Matthew 26:14-16. Then one of the twelve, called Judas Iscariot, went unto the chief priests, And said unto them, What will ye give me, and I will deliver him unto you? And they covenanted with him for thirty pieces of silver. And from that time he sought opportunity to betray him.

Matthew 27:3-5. Then Judas, which had betrayed him, when he saw that he was condemned, repented himself, and brought again the thirty pieces of silver to the chief priests and elders, Saying, I have sinned in that I have betrayed the innocent blood. And they said, What is that to us? see thou to that. And he cast down the pieces of silver in the temple, and departed, and went and hanged himself.

2. Lot’s wife looked back and was damned.

Luke 17:32 Remember Lot’s wife.

Genesis 19:17: ¶And it came to pass, when they had brought them forth abroad, that he said, Escape for thy life; look not behind thee, neither stay thou in all the plain; escape to the mountain, lest thou be consumed.

Genesis 19:26: ¶But his wife looked back from behind him, and she became a pillar of salt.

3. Demas, loved this present world and looked back and perished .

2 Timothy 4:10. For Demas hath forsaken me, having loved this present world, and is departed unto Thessalonica; Crescens to Galatia, Titus unto Dalmatia.

4. John the Baptist . He became great, bringing glory to Jesus.

John 3:30. He must increase, but I must decrease.

5. Mary loved the Lord and gave precious ointment and received unusual reward.

John 12:3. Then took Mary a pound of ointment of spikenard, very costly, and anointed the feet of Jesus, and wiped his feet with her hair: and the house was filled with the odour of the ointment.

Mark 14:6-9 And Jesus said, Let her alone; why trouble ye her? she hath wrought a good work on me. For ye have the poor with you always, and whensoever ye will ye may do them good: but me ye have not always. She hath done what she could: she is come aforehand to anoint my body to the burying. Verily I say unto you, Wheresoever this gospel shall be preached throughout the whole world, this also that she hath done shall be spoken of for a memorial of her.

6. Peter and the other apostles became great, enduring persecutions because of their faith.

Acts 5:29 Then Peter and the other apostles answered and said, We ought to obey God rather than men.

Act 5:40Act 5:42. And to him they agreed: and when they had called the apostles, and beaten them, they commanded that they should not speak in the name of Jesus, and let them go. And they departed from the presence of the council, rejoicing that they were counted worthy to suffer shame for his name. And daily in the temple, and in every house, they ceased not to teach and preach Jesus Christ.

7. Moses’s song shall be sang in heaven, because of his unusual consecration to God.

Hebrews 11:24-27. By faith Moses, when he was come to years, refused to be called the son of Pharaoh’s daughter; Choosing rather to suffer affliction with the people of God, than to enjoy the pleasures of sin for a season; Esteeming the reproach of Christ greater riches than the treasures in Egypt: for he had respect unto the recompence of the reward.

By faith he forsook Egypt, not fearing the wrath of the king: for he endured, as seeing him who is invisible.

Revelation 15:3. And they sing the song of Moses the servant of God, and the song of the Lamb, saying, Great and marvellous are thy works, Lord God Almighty; just and true are thy ways, thou King of saints.

Dearly beloved, today the opportunity is before you. Are you talking decisions that shall make your life bring glory to the Lord and secure your eternal wellbeing? I am sure you are a wise person. Please,keep taking wise decisions till you see Jesus in the sky.

Hebrews 3:15. While it is said, To day if ye will hear his voice, harden not your hearts, as in the provocation.

JESUS PASSIONATE WARNING TO BELIEVERS OF ALL AGES AND YOU IN PARTICULAR ON THE CONSEQUENCES OF YOUR DAILY DECISIONS.
Friend, as God brought you to every new day, you are a day closer to the dawning of the rapture. You must be conscious of every decision you are taking, because they shall affect your readiness for the coming of the Lord. Certainly persecutions shall come your way to try the validity of your faith. How will you be reacting to them. You must never ever compromise your faith.

1 Peter 1:6-8. Wherein ye greatly rejoice, though now for a season, if need be, ye are in heaviness through manifold temptations: That the trial of your faith, being much more precious than of gold that perisheth, though it be tried with fire, might be found unto praise and honour and glory at the appearing of Jesus Christ: Whom having not seen, ye love; in whom, though now ye see him not, yet believing, ye rejoice with joy unspeakable and full of glory:

See how others took decisions that helped them secured eternity with Jesus and follow their good examples.
1. John the beloved,

Rev 1:9Rev 1:10. I John, who also am your brother, and companion in tribulation, and in the kingdom and patience of Jesus Christ, was in the isle that is called Patmos, for the word of God, and for the testimony of Jesus Christ. I was in the Spirit on the Lord’s day, and heard behind me a great voice, as of a trumpet,

2. Stephen, endured to the end and went to glory.

Matthew 24:13 But he that shall endure unto the end, the same shall be saved.

Acts 7:59-60. And they stoned Stephen, calling upon God, and saying, Lord Jesus, receive my spirit. And he kneeled down, and cried with a loud voice, Lord, lay not this sin to their charge. And when he had said this, he fell asleep.

James 1:12. Blessed is the man that endureth temptation: for when he is tried, he shall receive the crown of life, which the Lord hath promised to them that love him.

Revelation 2:10 Fear none of those things which thou shalt suffer: behold, the devil shall cast some of you into prison, that ye may be tried; and ye shall have tribulation ten days: be thou faithful unto death, and I will give thee a crown of life.

3. Saul called Paul, served the Lord till the end after his conversion and was crowned.

Act 9:3Act 9:6. And as he journeyed, he came near Damascus: and suddenly there shined round about him a light from heaven: And he fell to the earth, and heard a voice saying unto him, Saul, Saul, why persecutest thou me? And he said, Who art thou, Lord? And the Lord said, I am Jesus whom thou persecutest: it is hard for thee to kick against the pricks. And he trembling and astonished said, Lord, what wilt thou have me to do? And the Lord said unto him, Arise, and go into the city, and it shall be told thee what thou must do.

2Ti 4:72Ti 4:8. I have fought a good fight, I have finished my course, I have kept the faith: Henceforth there is laid up for me a crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous judge, shall give me at that day: and not to me only, but unto all them also that love his appearing.

Noah believed the incredible and was saved. He believed the rain, God said, He would use to destroy the world. You have not seen the rapture, but the Bible says, it will happen. So believe like Noah and be prepared.

Hebrews 11:7 By faith Noah, being warned of God of things not seen as yet, moved with fear, prepared an ark to the saving of his house; by the which he condemned the world, and became heir of the righteousness which is by faith.

Genesis 2:5. And every plant of the field before it was in the earth, and every herb of the field before it grew: for the Lord God had not caused it to rain upon the earth, and there was not a man to till the ground.

Genesis 6:17. And, behold, I, even I, do bring a flood of waters upon the earth, to destroy all flesh, wherein is the breath of life, from under heaven; and every thing that is in the earth shall die.

1 Thessalonians 4:15-17. For this we say unto you by the word of the Lord, that we which are alive and remain unto the coming of the Lord shall not prevent them which are asleep. For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first: Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord.

Friend, sufficient for everyday is the evil thereof. Sufficient for each day are the challenges in it. But then your decisions determine whether you are really preparing for the rapture. See what Jesus said.

Matthew 6:34. Take therefore no thought for the morrow: for the morrow shall take thought for the things of itself. Sufficient unto the day is the evil thereof.

Please, endeavor to heed is warning and be wise in your daily decisions henceforth.

Hebrews 3:15. While it is said, To day if ye will hear his voice, harden not your hearts, as in the provocation.
