🛎 DO AWAY WITH OFFENSES
(#1 Daily Devotional Tract by Dr. Isaiah & Lianna Wealth)
🗓 Friday, 23rd June, 2017.
📜 SCRIPTURAL TEXT:
“Therefore if thou bring thy gift to the altar, and there rememberest that thy brother hath ought against thee; Leave there thy gift before the altar, and go thy way; first be reconciled to thy brother, and then come and offer thy gift.”
🔹 🔹 🔹
When we come to God, it should be with an open heart and a clear conscience (Psa. 24:3-4). This is why Jesus taught that a man must first be reconciled to his brother before he offers a gift to God. It is unacceptable to approach God’s Presence with offence in your heart, as offence is Satan’s property residing in you and they make your offerings and service to God unacceptable.
When we live in offence, we can hinder our own prayers unawares. In fact, the reason Satan wants us to remain in offence is so that he can use that as an accusation against us before the throne of God so that we would not receive answers to our prayers. So why would you continue to cooperate with him?
Today, walk out from darkness into the light by choosing to do away with every offence that you have harboured in your heart against others. In mercy, forgive those who have hurt you; let God be the judge in every situation wherein you have sought to exact revenge. This is what God’s Spirit would have you do today. He is there to strengthen you.

🌍 CHRISTIAN MISSION FOCUS
Let’s pray for Niger 🇳🇪…
Over 97% of its population are Muslims. 76% are unreached with the Gospel. Poverty and illiteracy are severe limitations and the enforcement of sharia law threatens the preaching and prevalence of the Gospel.
🙏🏼We are praying for more missionaries to flood the nation, those that will preach the Gospel with much power.
🔹 START-UP PRAYER:
Dear Father, strengthen me to walk in love towards those that hurt me, help me to act the way you would towards others that hurt you in Jesus name.
🔹 PRAYER OF REDEDICATION
Dear Father, I thank you for your love towards me and for making available to me all things that pertains to this life and godliness. Because you are a good God, you have prepared a great future for me and given me your Holy Spirit to guide and teach me to excel in all I do. So, I yield my body, soul and spirit wholly to you this day; order my steps oh Lord and have your way in me in Jesus Name. Amen
