TOPIC: HONOUR- THE KEY TO ACTIVATING FAVOUR (PART 2)

Scripture: 1 Samuel 2: 30. Wherefore the LORD God of Israel saith, I said indeed that thy house, and the house of thy father, should walk before me for ever: but now the LORD saith, Be it far from me; for them that honour me I will honour, and they that despise me shall be lightly esteemed.

Beloved, I welcome you to another Moment of Daily Encounter!

In continuation of keys to activating favour; we established yesterday that Honour is a key to activating favour.

Samuel was a little boy, but because he walked in honour, he was also growing in favour;

1 Samuel 2: 26. And the child Samuel grew on, and was in favour both with the LORD, and also with men.

Beloved, your age notwithstanding, when you walk in honour you enjoy favour. Honour to God and man and principles.

what are the consequences of dishonour?

1. A loss of favour with God and man; From our anchor scripture (1Sam.2:30); God speaking said:

….for them that honour me I will honour, and they that despise me shall be lightly esteemed.

This particular statement came because the house of Eli were operating in dishonour.

They were enjoying the favour of priesthood, until dishonour to God set in, the result is that God throw them out of the priesthood.

Beloved, one cheap way to get out of favour with God is to walk in dishonour. And many of God’s children dishonour God daily by refusal to acknowledge God as the Finger behind the happenings in their lives.

Every time you fail to show appreciation to God, we simply communicate dishonour without knowing and we are gradually closing our door of favour without knowing.

Beloved, when God blesses you with gifts and talent give Him thanks for it.

When God passes through your hands to achieve certain results appreciate Him for it. To keep the door of favour opened, maintain in an attitude of gratitude.

2. The harvest of curses;

The following curses came upon the house of Eli as a result of dishonour:

A. Loss of inheritance (1Sam.2:30-31), it is the inheritance of the descendants of Aaron to be priests forever as promised by God in Exo.29:9! However dishonour made God to change His mind.

Beloved, has God promised you anything, please ensure you maintain the path of honour.

Dishonour can abort the prophecy over your life. It can make you to loose your inheritance quickly. You must have seen families that poverty forced them to sell their inheritance, that is a sign of a curse.

B. Poverty (1Sam.2:32): The curse of poverty made all that will be born into the house of Eli to experience poverty by virtue of this curse.

There are those who don’t believe that poverty is a curse. For you to be in the midst of plenty where others are getting blessed and you are left behind, something is wrong.

C.Untimely death(1Sam.2:33): Most untimely death is as a result of dishonour! And God told Eli the same day his two sons will die!

Beloved, don’t die before your time! Let the word of God produce what it talks about in your life. Don’t claim ‘I shall not die’ while you are breaking the scriptures.

The same God that promised to satisfy you with long life can as well withdraw His hand and permit the devil to overrun things just because you are violating the scriptures. Honour gives favour but dishonour gives disfavour and bad luck.

Remember this: Heaven is real and hell is real. Have you settled your place of where you will spend eternity? Do it today by surrendering to Jesus.

Prayer points;

– Father thank you for your word to me today.
– Lord I receive grace to walk in honour in the name of Jesus

Prophetic Declaration:

– I prophesy the release of Grace to walk in honour in the name of Jesus.
– For those of us who have been honouring the Lord, Jehovah whom you Honour shall honour you this day in the name of Jesus.

From your brother Alex
God bless you.
