Topic: Reason In Line With The Scriptures [TREM Devotional 7 November 2019]
“By me kings reign, and princes decree justice. By me princes’ rule, and nobles, even all the judges of the earth.” – Proverbs 8: 15-16 KJV
I don’t know about you, but I have noticed that the more I preach, the stronger my anointing becomes, the stronger insight in the Word of God I have, and the more ready I become to give out. Every time I open the scriptures, it’s not dry because there is something fresh. It could be something I have preached before but because I am giving out, the law which God Himself instituted kicks in: “While the earth remaineth, seedtime and harvest, and cold and heat, and summer and winter, and day and night shall not cease”.(Genesis 8:22) I am sowing and so, I must reap.
A lot of people in the Church have become ‘town criers.’ Every day, you are crying. But look at us enjoying what an ‘unbeliever’ has done. Bill Gates was able to reason things out. Look at the revolution he has caused in the educational world. Our conferences are now being viewed all over the world on the computer via the internet. Every session is being stored on computer storage. That is what one human mind has achieved. A revolution that was caused by one person. The thinking of a ‘worldly man.’ Can you imagine what a believer, who has eternal life, filled with the Holy Spirit; reasoning in line with the scriptures can produce?
Let me tell you something child of God. If we think that we have seen discoveries enough, we have not seen discoveries yet. The Church is coming. That is why we must wake up and stop playing church. Proverbs 8:12 says “I wisdom dwell with prudence and find out knowledge of witty inventions”. I find out knowledge which involves reasoning, how do you find it out? Verse 14 says, “Counsel is mine, and sound wisdom: I am understanding; I have strength”. Verses 15-16 say “By me kings reign, and princes decree justice. By me princes’ rule, and nobles, even all the judges of the earth”. That’s how they rule. By reasoning you become distinguished.
