Set your house in order

Isaiah 38:1"Thus says the LORD, 'Set your house in order, for you shall die and not live.'"

This is an apt message for the year end, read it carefully and prayerfully!  I have watched church leaders arriving late to open their church while the preacher (me)stands at the door, I have watched church leaders carelessly prepare for sermons and worship without any prior praying or planning, I have watched church leaders carelessly organize meetings without fasting and prayer and thereby end up in a mess.  I have watched church leaders ride bikes with no driving license and also allowing their children to do lawless acts. I went to preach in a church where the pastor sits in his chair with a stick in his hand; yet, after a couple of days, I saw his 11 year old son riding a scooter with his mom as a proud pillion rider.  This is called utter DISORDERLINESS!  This is the current scenario of the spiritual leaders who look for popularity and success with no ethics in their life.  Above are the words that the Lord told king Hezekiah, the son of Ahaz and the 13th king of Judah. who did a great job in his country Judah; yet, he received a warning from the Lord to ‘set his house in order’ before his death.  Many of us need an outside voice to tell us that our life is in DISORDER, are you listening? May be you can consider this devotion as a ‘voice from God’ pointing out the areas where you need repairs!

I would stay in particular house when I visit that city for ministry, where both the husband and wife were Government teachers earning very well and they had built their house very thoughtfully with a separate room on the first floor for servants of God who visit their house.  They were wonderful hosts who took care of me very thoughtfully; however, both the husband and wife were bickering and arguing all the time.  The man though was very eager in participating in the work of God had a weakness for women and he was having a close relationship with a woman which his wife objected.  Though I warned him to change his life, instead of changing he severed his relationship with me, next I got to hear from them after a year  announcing the death of that gentleman who was just 40.  Warning! Investing your money in purchase and building of a spectacular home is alright but FIRST set your house in order, pleasing God in all ways.  I get emails from people requesting me to spend time with God and get an answer from God because they have not done that themselves, STOP being lazy.  Set your prayer life in order!  People have time to eat and have fun but they have no time for God? Warning!  Parents! Set your life in order and bring up your children in the fear of God! Replace smart phones with Bibles in your hand and be an example for your children.
