Scripture: 2 Samuel 6:16-23
“…Believe in the Lord your God, so shall ye be established; believe his prophets so shall ye prosper” 2 Chronicles 20:20 (KJV)

Feedback: Share evidence of how you led an exemplary life this week.

Many Christians today do not realize that talking carelessly about a true man of God is a direct affront to God. The Bible says touch not my anointed and do my prophets no harm (Ps, 105:15). Therefore, we ought to always respect and honor God’s prophets. We must ensure that we do no harm whatsoever to their person, personality or family.

David’s wife, Micah, despised him for dancing wholeheartedly and unashamedly before the Ark of God. This offended God and her act led to her permanent barrenness! There are strong consequences for disdain or disrespect shown towards God’s servants. There is a possibility that there are many in church today whose lives have not reflected the overflowing abundance of God’s goodness because of their habitual criticism of God’s servants?

How do you see and relate to the men and women of God in the church? Are you easily and frequently put off because from time to time they conduct their duties in a way you personally cannot relate with? Although, there may be false prophets in the body of Christ; there are many more genuine men and women of God. God will deal with his servants his own way, therefore, refrain from every form of criticism, rather, pray for them. Your duty is to respect and honour them and God, in turn, will honour and bless you.

Reflection: How do I react when others criticise men of God in my presence?

Lord, help me to honour and respect your prophets and their prophecies over my life in Jesus name, Amen.

I honour and believe God’s prophets and they are a blessing to my life.
