Bible Reading: Genesis 20
Memory Verse: Genesis 20:4
Now Abimelech had not gone near her, so he said, “Lord, will you destroy an innocent nation?”
Good morning ladies and gentlemen! How are you doing? How are you enjoying the journey so far? We are halfway through this journey. I am very excited because I have been learning awesome things in the past two days. What about you? Today, we are looking at the theme, “The gentiles or unbelievers recognize His voice too!” Let us get right into it.
From the yesterday’s post, we saw that God came to Abimelech in his dream and told him that he will die because he has a married woman living with him. From today’s memory verse, we see that Abimelech responded to God and asked Him if He will destroy an innocent nation.
I want us to concentrate on the response Abimelech gave. The first thing he said was “Lord.” Can you imagine this? When your mother talks to you and you are responding, you first say the word “mum”, before you continue with what you have to say. Why do you do this? Well, it is because you recognize her voice. So regardless of her being next to you or far away, you know the voice and can respond to it with her name/ title.
From this verse, we see that Abimelech recognized God’s voice and responded with His name. this shows how even unbelievers can recognize God’s voice.
A lot of the time, I hear many Christians saying that the don’t know God’s voice. They can’t recognize God’s voice, etc. How is this possible? From this verse, we know that even people who are not children of God can recognize His voice; how much more His children?
Most Christians recognize God’s voice; however, they ignore it because it is most of the time not what they want to hear. They act on their own accord without God. Then afterwards, when their actions are not fruitful, they turn back and blame God. I pray that none of you reading this message are like this. If you are, don’t worry. The Holy Spirit is available to help you and guide you. All you have to do is ask and He will help you. Hallelujah!
If you are reading this, and there’s a voice that has been speaking to you; you know that it is God. You want to join His family; kindly pray this short prayer with all sincerity in your heart.
I come to you today as a sinner. I admit that I am a sinner. I believe that Jesus is your Son and He came on to this earth to die for my sins. Dear Lord, let your Son come and fill me. Lord, I ask that He cleanses me off my sins. I am ready to stand for you and profess your Name. Thank you, Lord. Amen.
If you repeated this prayer with all the sincerity of your heart, congratulations!! You are now a part of God’s family. Welcome to the greatest family ever. Heaven is jubilating on your arrival. Your fellow brothers and sisters are also excited to have you on board. You can now be exempted from the wrath of the enemy and of God. Not only do you experience this, but your whole family as well. Wow! Isn’t the God you serve so cool? He is. Not only do you enjoy this, but you enjoy other blessings God has in store for His children.
Being a child of God is a wonderful thing. The road might not always be easy, but God is with you each and every step of the way. Guiding you, helping you and encouraging up. You will never regret this decision; I can assure you of that. Two things I would recommend for you to do are;
Get yourself a Bible (in a version you understand) and meditate on it day and night. In Joshua 1:8, we are told that when you meditate on the Word day and night, you will be prosperous and successful.
Find a Bible- believing church to attend and fellowship with other Christians. This would help you grow spiritually.
I am excited that you made this decision. Welcome! If you would like some help or more understanding into anything, you can leave a message (adding your email address) and I would be willing and happy to help you out. Hallelujah!
Have a wonderful day and let God inspire you!
