Today's Inspiration: 2 Corinthians 10:17 God will not give His glory to anyone therefore let us glory in the Lord. Only those that God commends are being approved not those who commends themselves.
Jesus sets the direction for us as His disciple. When He sees the multitudes who needed to break free from infirmity, He was moved with compassion and He healed them. Matthew 14:14. After healing He will provide them with abundant peace and truth that will set them free and prosper them. It has been this principle in old testament Jeremiah 33:6-9 as well. Matthew 14:14 Jesus challenged His disciples to provide food for the multitudes who have been listening to His teaching since evening. Whatever little they have He blessed them and they multiplied to feed the 5000 families. However it has been Satan's strategy to distract us from victory God had won for us like in the case of Elijah.
We need to think and live rightly. We must not neglect the fact that there is a spiritual enemy, a real spiritual power who has a spiritual influence over mankind. He is none other than Satan whose first priority is to work on God"s children of disobedience. 1 Peter 5:8 then over those who is about to receive Salvation or rather those who receive Salvation but easily deceived by the lies of Satan. 2 Corinthians 4:4.
Therefore obedience is better than sacrifice 1 Samuel 15:22. Rebellion is as the sin of witchcraft and stubbornness is iniquity and idolatry.
