Month Theme: Wisdom and Power for Purpose
Topic: Hobson’s Choice and “The Traditions of Men”
24 When the unclean spirit is gone out of a man, he walketh through dry places, seeking rest; and finding none, he saith,I will return unto my house whence I came out.The traditions of men usually have a reference to the Word of God. They are not outright lies but twisted versions of the Word of God designed by men to control others and deny the power of God. The traditions of men trade revelation for religion, power for politics, love for legalities and godliness for gain. We betray the very faith we profess when we see our manmade traditions being eroded by the move of the Holy Ghost.The demonstration of the power of God and the revelation of His Word are under constant attack as every denomination thinks it is the only repository of the truth. Powerless Christianity is not an option for the Church. Let us stop the destructive debates about the manifestations of the Holy Ghost which makes those who are weak in faith walk out of the church in search of solutions to their challenges.When believers don’t see the healing and deliverance power of God at work in the Church, they are tempted to look for them elsewhere. This fruitless search has thrown many believers into the arms of the devil. Believers must remember that though the Body of Christ is not yet perfect, it is the best place we can belong to. We don’t have another kingdom or body to choose – it is Hobson’s choice.
1. Pray for the grace to manifest the power of God in your life and family.
2. Pray for the Church that God will break the stronghold of the traditions of men, in the Church.
