RCCG Open Heaven 22nd June 2022 Daily Devotional Message
The question in our topic for today is one that invariably every human being will be asked at one point or another. Some people have already been asked this question before and their answer made them lose an opportunity that would have changed their lives forever. Your answer to this question, depending on who is asking you, can change your life for the better if you give the correct response.
When God told Solomon to say what he wanted in (2 Chronicles 1:6-7), he asked for wisdom to lead God’s people right. That answer made him end up as the richest and wisest king in the world, ever. When Elisha was asked this same question, he said he wanted a double portion of the spirit of Elijah and he got it.
What do you want? Esau wanted food; he got it, but he who could have become the nation of Israel missed that great destiny. Gehazi wanted money, he got it, but he who could have gotten a double portion of the anointing on Elisha died a leper.
Jeremiah 45:5 says:
And seekest thou great things for thyself? seek them not: for, behold, I will bring evil upon all flesh, saith the LORD: but thy life will I give unto thee for a prey in all places whither thou goest.
Ecclesiastes 1:2 says all these things are vanity upon vanity. Jesus Christ told us what to seek in Matthew 6:33:
But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.
Seek God, seek that His kingdom be established here on earth. Jeremiah 29:13 says if you seek Him, you will find Him. Let your yearning be for Him and Him alone, then all the things that others are chasing will be chasing you. Seek Him in worship, seek Him through Bible study, seek Him in prayers.
Set your love upon God. Love Him with all your heart, soul and mind as Jesus instructed us in Matthew 22:37 and see if you will ever lack any good thing.
