VOICE OF THE MORNING 25TH JUNE 2018
Hebrews 5:14 But strong meat belongeth to them that are of full age, even those who reason of use have their senses exercised to discern both good and evil.
Genesis 2:16-17 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.
As little children growing up, we’ve been taught about what is right and what is wrong. Cleaning up the house to keep it neat is right, touching the hot stove is wrong. I even remember my parents trying to teach me the difference between good friends and bad friends. When Adam and Eve were in the garden of Eden, God instructed them not to eat from the tree of knowledge of good and evil because that was wrong. Before the fall, Adam and Eve were only conscious of their relationship with God. They had no conception of rights versus wrong, except for eating of the tree. However after Eve took from the tree (under the temptation of the serpent) and ate it’s fruit, then gave to Adam to eat, they became “sin conscious”. As a result of this mankind must now distinguish between good and evil in this world.
When God does away with this present world system, we will no longer need to be aware of the difference between good and evil, but in the meantime it is very important for us to make a distinction. In the Book of Hebrews, the writers tells us that mature believers have the ability to distinguish good from evil. In fact, many people refer to evil things as good and to good things as evil. Beloveth, this is not the will of God for your life. He wants you to be mature in spiritual things. Part of our prophetic DNA is to discern good from evil. Whether it is opportunities, life choices, or career decisions, you and I should be able to discern on what is of God and what is not of God. As believers, we are responsible for excercing our senses of praying and meditating on the Word of God.
PRAYER: Abba Father, I thank you because you are the definition of everything that is good, increase my Faith not to find it difficult to decern and confess right and wrong in Jesus Name.
PROPHETIC DECLARATION: I Prophesy today that the wisdom from above resident in your heart will guide you in every minute of the day in Jesus Name.
STUDY AND MEDITATE ON THE FOLLOWING SCRIPTURES :
Romans 7:15-25; 2 Corinthians 12:19; John 1:12.
Intercessory Psalms of the Day: Psalms 69:22-23
WORD FOR THE DAY: Today is our future because tomorrow is unknown.
