THE GOOD NEWS BEARER 

"What I tell you in the dark, speak in the daylight; and what is whispered in your ear, proclaim from the housetops." ~ Matthew 10:27

Deborah Toyin Daniel

Deborah "Toyin" Daniel is an Evangelist, a Missionary, and Christian Author. She grew up in a strict religious household but found Christ on her own, when it became clear to her that she had no relationship whatsoever with Him in spite of her strict upbringing, and had no purpose in life.  Deborah surrendered her life to Christ in 1992, but kept running from her calling owing to the severe trials she faced and the cares of the world, until she had a personal encounter with Him in 1999. She steps out of her comfort zone as led to fulfill her calling.  She also speaks openly about her childhood difficulties and the struggles she has had in life, to testify of the mercy of God and His awesome power. For more messages and a heart talk on living a fulfilled life in Christ, get the book, Walk the Winning Walk - free and available to new converts/believers in Christ from Divine Literature International.

THE GOLD TRAP

September 24, 2015

Reflection: Exodus 20:3-6, Exodus 20:23


When I was still in the world, the idol I innocently worshipped was solid gold. I mean, I had so much of it that I wouldn't even remember some pieces until I needed them. I had my man-made god securely kept in the safe deposit box in a bank. You would never find me at church services, shopping, or running simple errands without it. I invested in gold jewelry, traded it, wore it, loved it to bits, and worshipped it. Unknowingly, it was my hidden god until it ruined and left me without a penny in my pocket (for real). Solid gold was what Satan assigned to my life. "She loves solid gold. Let us give her that since nothing else has worked," he said. I had to rededicate my life to the Lord when He revealed things to me. I then renewed my covenant with Him. 

 

Many unconsciously worship idols just like I did, and do not know it. You need to do some soul-searching when you find yourself drawn to a particular thing or person more than the Lord. Seek the Lord for revelation. Solid gold was the idol I unconsciously worshipped; yours could be money, other assets, your career, a portrait, your spouse, children - anyone, or anything for that matter. Ensure that you do not worship anything or anyone other than the Only True God. You do not have to physically bow to objects or persons for them to become idols that you worship. Anyone or anything that takes the place of God in your life, or is depended on more than Him is an idol.  May we be guided!

 

Shalom, good people!
