The Path to Promotion

🔊Audio Version Here ☞ https://bit.ly/aud2767

2 Corinthians 13:5 (KJV)  Examine yourselves, whether ye be in the faith; prove your own selves. Know ye not your own selves, how that Jesus Christ is in you, except ye be reprobates?

Funsho did not want to backside like the brethren he had heard about who were once on fire for Jesus on campus, but who were now adulterers and shameless sugar daddies.

As Funsho prayed and fasted to examine his life thoroughly in the presence of the Lord, the Lord revealed to him that he was not really a man of his word. He made promises that he wouldn't keep, and would sometimes say things that passed the wrong impression even though they were not outright lies. He repented of his dishonesty before the Lord and became very careful in that particular area. As a result of his repentance, he experienced promotion in his walk with the Lord. He no longer struggled to pray for as long as he knew he needed to. There were now several demonstrations of the manifest power of God in his life.

It is possible to be living like an unbeliever and still assume you are in the faith because you attend church services and speak "Christianise". But examining yourself regularly would help you know exactly the state of your heart; whether it is abiding in the Lord or it has strayed from Him. While we can be emotional and sentimental in our judgment of things, God is not a respecter of persons. He evaluates us by our fruits, and determines our promotion according to our level of faithfulness.

Go into today remembering to examine yourself in the Lord's presence from time to time. As soon as you observe any deviation or character floor, address it immediately and thoroughly. Remember that a stitch in time saves nine.

Prayer: Lord Jesus, please help me regularly examine myself as I walk through this slippery worldly path. Please keep my feet from slipping and my heart from wandering.
—Abraham Damilola Arigi
