To remain in God's house is to remain in the will of God. He said
his prayer and desire is to dwell in the will of the Lord all the days of his life.
But even though that might be your desire too, you must guard
against the devil who desires to hurt those who want to serve the Lord. He might come as
an angel of light, suggest a certain direction as the will of God, so that you feel very
spiritual and think that you can get along without counsel and the fellowship of other
In Isaiah we read God saying, "My thoughts are not your
thoughts and My ways are not your ways". And again, "My ways are higher than
your ways and My thoughts than your thoughts" (Is 55:8-9). It's so important that we
continue to remain low at His feet.
Thokozani also highlighted that he wants to dwell in God's
presence. That is so important to each one's life. We so easily make our own plans, but we
must allow God to have His way.
When we read the Bible we find so many who started well, they
walked in the will of God, but later got used to the will of God and started to be
careless. God could use them in the beginning but later they could not be used anymore and
even became enemies of God. King Saul is a good example. At first he was humble and even
hid when they wanted to make him king, but later he became proud and thought he could do
things his own way.
So too in living as husband and wife - do not get used to things,
but in every situation seek God's will. Maybe you have followed God from your youth, don't
lose that, but follow him still in marriage. Husband and wife should be an image of Christ
and the church.
We read in Jeremiah, "And ye shall seek me, and find me, when
ye shall search for me with all your heart" (Jer 29:13).
Sin separates between brethren. Don't allow anything to come in
When David sinned, it troubled him continually so that his
"bones dried up" and he even became sick. Only when he went to Nathan the
prophet and confessed his sin did he find forgiveness and freedom (Ps 32:3-5).
If you want to live a godly life, never forget that it's sin that
separates you from God.
Each of us have a conscience and there's something in your
conscience that either accuses you or excuses you. Maybe you cry to God for forgiveness
but you don't find peace. When something comes between you and God seek a child of God to
pray with. Have you done that?
May that be your life that nothing comes in between but that you
might remain in the will of God, where He has the say in your life, where He leads and
guides you to "seek first the Kingdom of God and His righteousness" (Matt 6:33).
Whenever you meet up with a problem, seek Him first.
He lives among living people, who are one with Him, where there is
perfect harmony and unity among Christians. That's what we should be like. In Acts we read
how the Christians were united with one accord when the Holy Spirit came down upon them
(Acts 2:1-2). That's why God the Holy Spirit could come down and fill them.
We want to be one with true Christians, not those who are half
As you stay in His house you will be shielded every day and there
you will see the beauty of the Lord and be partakers thereof. The safest place to be is in
the perfect will of God. Stay with those on fire for God and have fellowship with true
Christians. That's where you will see the power of God.
