In this day and age of social media, many young children of God have patterned their lives according to what they see worldly celebrities do. Not minding if it was right or wrong. As a result many lights have gone dim and are in danger of being put out: “In the same way, let your light shine before men, so that they may see your good works and give glory to your Father in heaven” (Matthew 5:16). Your light is meant to illuminate and drive out the darkness of the world around you; now people are confused as to the manner of ‘light’ you claim to carry: “Make sure that the light you think you have is not actually darkness” (Luke 11:35, NLT). Just like the prodigal son who forgot the son of who he was, so many have lost their way and forgotten whose children they are. Can a lion beg a chicken for food? That is what we do when we try to be like the people of the world instead of emulating our Father in Heaven, the Creator of the heavens and earth and everything therein.

The world is searching for answers, souls are crying out and the world is at her wits end, and as God's children, He has made us His vessels through which He reaches the world with solutions. But it's unfortunate that today, most sons of God are attempting to achieve such impact by the wisdom of the world, believing in thei

Every activity of man encompasses these four positions: walking, standing, sitting or lying to sleep or rest. Just as we do these activities physically, we also carry them out spiritually. The context in which these activities occur spiritually affects the outcome of what we do in the physical. No wonder the Bible tells us: “Blessed is the man who walks not in the counsel of the ungodly, nor stands in the path of sinners, nor sits in the seat of the scornful…” (Psalm 1:1). Concerning lying down to sleep or rest, Samson laid his head to rest on the wrong lap and he was overpowered, which eventually led to his death. However, for our discussion today, we will be looking at sitting. As the year begins with all manner of resolutions and races, Heaven admonishes us to be mindful of where we sit. Where we sit determines the manner of instructions we will receive, which ultimately affects how we live. As we walk in this New Year and await His return, the Bible tells us: “He tha
