Apostle Grace Lubega
2 Chronicles 25:1-2(KJV); Amaziah [was] twenty and five years old [when] he began to reign, and he reigned twenty and nine years in Jerusalem. And his mother’s name [was] Jehoaddan of Jerusalem. And he did that which was] right in the sight of the LORD, but not with a perfect heart.
God can do anything in any man because He [God] is no respecter of persons (Acts 10:34).
There are many across the world who call unto God to be used of Him. They fast, pray, give and make many sacrifices but never seem to see God work mightily through them.
Some have made themselves available vessels for any task at hand but have still not been used by God in the ways He wishes to.
The reason for this is because many never EXAMINE the STATE of their hearts with regard to what they are asking for.
Our theme scripture tells a story of a one Amaziah who did what was right in the sight of God. Sadly however, even if he did what was right, it was not with a perfect heart.
What a paradox!
Sadly again, even today, many are like this; they give big, pray hard, fast for long but not with a perfect heart.
Why do you attend service every day? Why do you serve in the ministry? Why do you want a big church? Why do you want the anointing? Why do you want to heal?
Beloved, why are you asking for what you asking for from God?
It might be all right and good in the sight of God but it also has to be with a PERFECT HEART.
This perfect heart is a pure heart that pants after what God desires, seeks to see what God wishes to establish and yearns for the fulfilment of the will of the Father.
FURTHER STUDY: Psalms 139:23, 1 Samuel 16:7
The perfect heart is a pure heart that pants after what God desires, seeks to see what God wishes to establish and yearns for the fulfilment of the will of the Father.
PRAYER: My heavenly father, I thank you for the word for today. It is nourishment to my soul and by it I grow. This day, search my heart oh Lord. Shine your light on those things that must change, that my true desires will be your desires. Cause me to minister out of a purity of spirit and not selfishness of personal gain. Help me and deal with me Lord. In Jesus’ name. Amen.
