Topic: Refuse To Block Your Sunshine

Opening Scripture: 1john 3:10-“in this children of God: and the children of the devil are manifest: whoever does not practise righteousness is not of God, nor is he who does not love his brother”

There is something striking about today’s opening scripture, ‘whoever does not practise righteousness is not of God’ it means whoever is not living right, and is not willing to live right is certainly not of God, but it doesn’t end there ;’nor is he who does not love his brother’ that means if you’re not loving, you’re not of God as well. In this kingdom of God, love is not a feeling or some act you put up out of compulsion, it’s a command luke 10:25-27. You can’t love God and still dwell in hate 1john 4:20-“if someone says, ‘I love God,” and hates his brother, he is a liar, for he does not love his brother whom he has seen, how can he love God whom he has not seen?’
We must understand that people around us are not always going to be loveable, yet we have a command from God to love, when we work with God, he would release to us the wisdom to work in His love. Many prayers are hindered today because of hate, many people are not yet opened up to their sunshine in life because anger& bitterness still dwells in them; you won’t make it very far this way & it also shows you don’t appreciate God, because God is love & you can’t carry love& still dwell in hate. People may hurt you and do things that are not right to you, it may even be from someone close;it’s okay if you get angry, but it’s totally wrong to stay angry. The issue many face is staying angry, anger leads 2 bitterness then it would proceed to having evil thoughts & implementing it, that’s way too much, you are opening up yourself for satan to take possession.
Ephesians 4:26-27-” be ye angry,& sin not: let not the sun go down upon your wrath: neither give place to the devil’. Have you been hurting? let it go, the fact that you stay angry gives them a chance to hurt you over & over again. Let God handle your issue & you would be amazed the joy u would posses. Remain Blessed.

Lesson for the day-when we dwell in hurt, unforgiveness, bitterness etc, we block the sunshine over our lives.

Quote for the day- Let go & let God

additional foot note: Understand the power of your words. They have the power to build up and the power to tear down. Don’t use your words in order to hurt someone else so that you can look good in the eyes of others. Wouldn’t you rather be pleasing to God? He sees all and knows all and one day we will have to give an account to Him for everything that we have done and said. Amen.

Lifeforce prayers: From now, I connect to the fountain of praises.
The workings of grace and mercy shall not cease in my life in Jesus name.
Create in me a heart that is grateful oh Lord.
Today, I shall encounter events that will put praises in my mouth in the name of Jesus. Amen!
There will be a divine turnaround in your situation in the name of Jesus. Amen!!
Thank You Lord.
