💢The Secret Place of Character…
🔥As we continue on our discussion on Building Character for a Glorious Manhood today we will be looking at
💢The secret place of Character.
Men of Character – Building Character
Character is a virtue with priceless power. It takes a man behind the secret walls of his enemies. It has the power to interrupt God’s plans on earth and cancel eternal judgement.
In Genesis 18:17, God interrupted himself to do something very unusual. Do you know why? I think you should know…
Men of Character Case Study: Abraham
Remember Sodom and Gomorrah! The sin of Sodom and Gomorrah was great. Its fate was sealed. Its destruction is set. The angels of destruction were already in the city to unleash the terror of GOD. Time was ticking; but then something remarkable happened. God interrupted himself. Aha! God pulsed the plan in search of a man.
The destruction of Sodom had to wait because there was a man that needed to know what God was about to do. Until God had informed that man, He was not going ahead with the plan.🔥That Man was Abraham. That man could still be you.
This remarkable turn was recorded in Genesis 18:17-19, which says, “And the Lord said, “Shall I hide from Abraham what I am doing, since Abraham shall surely become a great and mighty nation, and all the nations of the earth shall be blessed in him? For I have known him, in order that he may command his children and his household after him, that they keep the way of the Lord, to do righteousness and justice, that the Lord may bring to Abraham what He has spoken to him.”
What qualified Abraham to cause God to pulse his own plan to inform a man was nothing but his Character.
Character of men programs and reprograms heaven plans on earth.
💢“For I know him…, I know Abraham…, I know what he can do”. God Said
💢Our God knew that Abraham will teach his children the secrets of the Lord.
💢God knew that Abraham will pray for Sodom.
💢He knew that Abraham will stand by God’s decision on Sodom even if his pray is not answered.
This was God’s testimony of character of a man like you. For this reason, God chose to reveal His secret of the impending disaster to Abraham.
Abraham’s character was so predictable that God could boast of him and beyond that interrupt Himself to reveal the world most kept secret to him, because no other man on earth at the time of Sodom’s destruction knew what would happen to the city, but the Man of Character knew.
God knew that Abraham will pray for Sodom. Abraham proved God’s testimony of him right. He took advantage of this secret to interceed for Sodom until all options to save Sodom was exhausted. God was willing to spare Sodom for Abraham’s sake.
🔥A man of character will interrupt and influence God’s plan and judgement on earth and save his family and nation from destruction.
Families and Character
Families are being destroyed today because men of character are missing at home.
💢When a man is asking God to bless him with a good wife, God knows if the man has the character to keep the good wife. Some of the reason why some men find it difficult to get a good wife, is because they do not have the character to keep her.
💢When a man is asking God to bless him with riches, God knows if the man has the character to keep the riches from destroying him. Some men run after vanity, women, alcohol and all forms of vain glory ones they see just a few amount of financial increase.
How I wish today that you do everything it takes to build your character as a man. Because the secret place of character is the place you must be.
🔥Character will take you into the secret place of the Most High. It will bring you face to face with unsearchable power of God.
🔥The difference between one man and another is the revelation of knowledge they carry and apply. What you know is what differentiates you.
The revelation of knowledge is the impartation of power.
🔥Man of Valour, you need power. To get power, you need character. 🔥
Hidden things, secret codes, and secret missions are only revealed to men of character, who can keep the value of the secret or use it to create solution to problems; because this is exactly why God reveals the secret of His mission to just few men.
However, Character will bring you into the board room of great companies and institutions. It will open the door of secret wealth places, hand you over the keys to wealthy rooms, and it will bring you face to face with men that make kings.
Character Distinguishes You
💢Some men have lost their children, wives and parents and everything because their character cut them off from revelation of spiritual secrets.
💢Men without character are spiritually blind; and things around them die. Their businesses die, their health die, their career die, their families, their ministry and their destiny die.
Man of Valour, you must be different. Things around you must not die.
Do you have character, such that God and men will say, “I know him”, and reveal secret things to you? because the time to build it is now. Start now.
It is now time to make a decision to prove yourself as a man of Character. The year 2020 is coming, will it be the same story as 2019.
One key to building your character is stability in decision and actions.
James 1:7-8 says, “For let not that men suppose that he will receive anything from the Lord; he is a double-minded man, unstable in all his ways”.
Stability is built on the foundation of orderliness. You cannot become stable without creating order around your life.
