WALK IN PURITY
“Then shalt thou go on forward from thence, and thou shalt come to the plain of Tabor, and there shall meet thee three men…”
(1 Samuel 10: 3)
That is the Focal Scripture of Streams of Joy Devotional today.
According to Samuel’s prophecy, Saul was meant to meet two men at Rachel’s sepulcher; but he was meant to meet three men at the plain of Tabor. Saul was going to move from meeting two men to meeting three men at the plain of Tabor. Simply put, Saul was meant to experience increase at Tabor.
‘Tabor’ is interpreted to mean ‘purity’. So at the place of purity, Saul experienced increase without even praying for it. Purity was the environment where increase came in contact with Saul. Purity was the location where Saul experienced the increase that Samuel prophesied about.
Friend, purity is the place of your increase. Righteous living is the platform where divinely orchestrated increase will come your way without efforts. Righteousness is the platform that will push you to the next level; righteousness is the key to your Exceeding Expansion. Righteousness is the environment that will cause God to give you more than you asked for.
When you live your life without purity, you are shortchanging yourself and truncating your destiny with your own hands. When you fail to live by God’s standard of purity and righteousness, you may keep seeking increase without experiencing it. There are divinely orchestrated testimonies that should be yours but which may never come to reality if you remain stuck in sin.
Let God not plan to bless you and end up seeing you in relationships you should have relinquished; let God not plan to increase you and see you in attitudes, behaviours, sins, etc that are toxic to your increase. Walk in righteousness and God will increase you.
Pray With Me: Lord, give me grace to walk in righteousness and purity in this year and beyond, in Jesus’ name!
