Anchor Scripture

Psalm 69:9 “For the zeal of thine house hath eaten me up; and the reproaches of them that reproached thee are fallen upon me.”

Psalm 69:9 “For the zeal of thine house hath eaten me up; and the reproaches of them that reproached thee are fallen upon me.”

Numbers 25:11-13 “11 Phinehas, the son of Eleazar, the son of Aaron the priest, hath turned my wrath away from the children of Israel, while he was zealous for my sake among them, that I consumed not the children of Israel in my jealousy.12 Wherefore say, Behold, I give unto him my covenant of peace:13 And he shall have it, and his seed after him, even the covenant of an everlasting priesthood; because he was zealous for his God, and made an atonement for the children of Israel.”

Welcome people of God to the last third of our “year of transformation.”It has been an amazing year thus far, with diverse visitations from our God. As a family and as individuals we have experienced His faithfulness and His wonderful works throughout, and I know the best is yet to come. The month of September has therefore been divinely tagged as “our month of complete dedication”.

For us to experience transformation from glory to glory, we must be completely dedicated to God. If He was so dedicated to our well being to give His only begotten Son as a sacrifice for our sins, then we owe it a duty to be totally sold out to Him too. David was one individual who was totally sold out to God, as he declared in Psalm 69:9, one of our anchor scriptures for the month.

Being completely dedicated to God comes with rewards. Phinehas received God’s covenant of peace by being totally zealous for God, as seen in our second anchor scripture. Because God is the same yesterday, today and forever, (Hebrews 13:8),the same rewards await us today if only we would be sold out to God.As we do, He will attend to every issues of our lives. That is my prayer for everyone of us this month in the mighty Name of Jesus. Shalom!
