Welcome GTH Family! Today is Day 5 of our Devotional series on Psalm 106 from Prophet Shyju Mathew’s Bible Study with Emmanuel Church in Montreal. Yesterday (Day 4), we learnt how to submit our desires to God. Today, we learn about the fear of the Lord. Don’t forget to share with a friend and enjoy your day!

Day 5: FEAR GOD AND DO NOT DEMAND

Psalm 106: 15 So He gave them what they asked for, but He sent a plague along with it.

I have noticed that if you consistently ask God for something, He may give that to you but somehow, we must also bear the consequence of your demand. Notice the same in the prodigal son story. The Father gives the son his demands, and before his appointed time, he loses everything.

A good sign to look out for is when you lose sleep over a desire; now you are in a dangerous place. Any desire in the soul realm will have the fruit in the soul realm. Anything desired in your spirit will have a spiritual outcome.

If the desire is in your flesh, you will reap flesh. If your desire is in your spirit, you will reap peace, joy.

With every desire, sense God’s heart. Always ask “Is God in this?”
Come to a place where every desire is processed through the eyes of God.

Never put a cost on your obedience. Never let even the smallest desire move past the scrutiny of His eyes.

Function by faith and surrender every desire.
Be patient enough to listen and then do.

Pray: Lord, remove every insistent desire of my flesh that consumes my thoughts, my sleep, my heart, my mind. Get out in the Name of Jesus! May my only desire that consumes me be Jesus!

Tomorrow, we will focus on finding your Moses. We pray you are blessed indeed!
