Love the Lord and operate in His authority
  • 1 Kings 2:1-4, 10-12
  • 1 Chronicles 29:10-12
  • Mark 6:7-13

Lord has given us two commandments: to love the Lord our God with all our heart, strength, might and will. And then to love our neighbour as ourselves. For us to experience the perfect love and the will of God in our lives we need a perfect balance obeying the commandments in these two areas. If we lack in one the flow breaks. That is the challenge we face everyday. David’s life is a good example. He, being the one after God’s own heart, though he failed in life occasionally, managed to get back on track through repentance and forgiveness and experienced the power of God’s love. He instructed his son Solomon to walk in God’s ways and to keep His commandments, which he did and managed to establish his father’s throne in Israel. The lesson here is that, when we are in perfect harmony with the Father’s will we can operate in His authority. Although we may fail, we are invited again through repentance and to sustain ourselves through the power of the Holy spirit for the mission God has entrusted to us.

Prayer: Abba Father, we know that we are here by your choice. Reveal your plan and purpose to us. Amen
