    </div><div>It is advisable that you prayerfully and meditatively read the text first</div><div>
    </div><div>*STICK WITH GOD*</div><div>*TEXT:* JOB 27:1-10</div><div>
    </div><div>[1]Moreover Job continued his parable, and said,</div><div>
    </div><div>[2]As God liveth, who hath taken away my judgment; and the Almighty, who hath vexed my soul;</div><div>
    </div><div>[3]All the while my breath is in me, and the spirit of God is in my nostrils;</div><div>
    </div><div>[4]My lips shall not speak wickedness, nor my tongue utter deceit.</div><div>
    </div><div>[5]God forbid that I should justify you: till I die I will not remove mine integrity from me.</div><div>
    </div><div>[6]My righteousness I hold fast, and will not let it go: my heart shall not reproach me so long as I live.</div><div>
    </div><div>[7]Let mine enemy be as the wicked, and he that riseth up against me as the unrighteous.</div><div>
    </div><div>[8]For what is the hope of the hypocrite, though he hath gained, when God taketh away his soul?</div><div>
    </div><div>[9]Will God hear his cry when trouble cometh upon him?</div><div>
    </div><div>[10]Will he delight himself in the Almighty? will he always call upon God?</div><div>
    </div><div>🔑📖KEY VERSE: _*”My righteousness I hold fast, and will not let it go: my heart shall not reproach me so long as I live” (JOB 27:6).*_</div><div>
    </div><div>The best time to gauge the level of commitment you have towards God is when things are not going according to plans in your life. Such a time brings out the best or the worst in you. It shows a clearer expression of your faith or unbelief in God and His promises.</div><div>
    </div><div>It was not different for Job. He had been experiencing severe affliction. His wife had lost hope of his recovery and his friends had condemned him as a sinner. His condition was so severe that He cursed the day he was born. Yet, now in the face of physical and emotional pain, he vowed never to turn his back on God.</div><div>
    </div><div>Although he wrongly assumed that it was God that “vexed [his] soul”, he resolved not to utter wicked and deceitful words while he yet lived. He knew that such action would only serve to justify the unwarranted condemnation from his friends. He would instead, retain his integrity and not abandon righteousness because of his suffering. He would not do anything that could attract a reproach to his person, for then, he would be living like a hypocrite who has no hope in eternity even though he has amassed so much in life. God would not hear his cry when troubles come and he would not delight in turning to God at such a time.</div><div>
    </div><div>Righteousness is the believer’s badge of honour. Whatever our experiences in life, we must look beyond immediate difficulties and focus on living to please God. We must retain our faith in Him and shun all hypocritical lifestyles. We should trust God to deliver us from our present troubles. If in His sovereignty, He decides not to do so, we should rest assured that He still has our best interest at heart.</div><div>
    </div><div>✍🏽THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: _*God is with us when we are with Him!*_</div><div>
    </div><div>THE BIBLE IN ONE YEAR:*HEBREWS 1-4*</div><div>
    </div><div>*Want to be growing in your Christian experiences?*</div><div>
    </div><div>Job revealed what kept him going, growing and glowing in the midst of cruel challenges in vv4-6. It can be described by a single word, consecration.</div><div>
    </div><div>1. Consecration of his tongue, v4.</div><div>a. What is the essence of this consecration?</div><div>b. How does it make his experience with God stable and shining?</div><div>c. Do you have this consecration?</div><div>
    </div><div>2. Consecration against insincerity, v5. </div><div>a. He decided never to justify wrongs, v5a. This centres around commitment to the truth.</div><div>b. He decided to remain a man of impeccable integrity, v5a.</div><div>c. Do you have this consecration?</div><div>
    </div><div>3. Consecration never to sin or do what God forbids, v6.</div><div>Do you have this fixed mind?</div><div>
    </div><div>*Questions*</div><div>a. What are the other implications of each of the consecrations above?</div><div>b. Which non negotiable decisions do you have for God or do you allow any wind to blow you here and there?</div><div>c. What other consecration do you need in these last days?</div><div>d. Are you a person of saintly consecration?🙆‍♂️</div><div>See also Psalm 15:4b;57:7-9; 108:1.</div><div>
    </div><div>*Only men and women of godly consecration can be steadfast, separated, sinless and shining in these last days.🤷‍♂️</div><div>*Your consecration determines your character and destiny in life and eternity.</div><div>*Your consecration determines your degree and spheres of influence.</div><div>
    </div><div>*Prayer points*</div><div>Lord, give me power to be a person of godly consecration 🙏</div><div>Teach me areas I need to make consecration and give me strong will to follow it through🙏</div><div>Make some consecrations to God needful for your Christian journey🙏</div><div>Give more convictions that will lead to more consecrations for your children in the Church🙏</div><div>
    </div><div>*HYMN* I Have Decided To Follow Jesus</div>
