Achan! Give God the glory

Today’s Scripture: Joshua 7:1 KJV

“But the children of Israel committed a trespass in the accursed thing: for Achan, the son of Carmi, the son of Zabdi, the son of Zerah, of the tribe of Judah, took of the accursed thing: and the anger of the Lord was kindled against the children of Israel.”

Something that is either cursed, damnable, detestable, ill-fated or odious can be referred to as an accursed thing. Sometimes what makes it accursed is that it is devoted to a deity or to God and hence must not be tempered with. God specifically instructed the Israelites to destory all the plunder from Jericho and to put the gold and silver in the temple treasury,  but Achan stole some of these things and put them in his tent!

What accursed thing has God instructed you to stay away from: adultery, fornication or corruption? What tithes, offering, seed etc which belong to God are you hiding in your room or home! What makes it accursed is your disobedience to God’s specific instructions in keeping what belongs to Him. Repent today from every accursed or devoted thing that you have taken and the glory of God will be restored upon your life.

Prayer for today: Father forgive my disobedience in holding on to accursed or devoted things,  help me do what is right by giving You all that I have kept away from You in Jesus name, Amen
