Therefore say thou unto them, Thus saith the LORD of hosts; Turn ye unto me, saith the LORD of hosts, and I will turn unto you, saith the LORD of hosts. – Zechariah 1:3
….Turn ye unto me….
This is a call to return back from a path that is outside God’s will, plan and purpose. Where are you facing at the moment? God is calling us to turn from our state of decadence and iniquities to the saviour whose blood can cleanse from all unrighteousness.
Many of us today are walking around a circle without making any meaningful progress because we have turned our backs against God. You started in Church but now serving in the court of the devil. Oh!!! You don’t need to work in the shrine before you work for the devil. When your life now promote what God hates, you are definitely promoting devil in your life.
Look at Romans 6:13,16
 Neither yield ye your members as instruments of unrighteousness unto sin: but yield yourselves unto God, …..and your members as instruments of righteousness unto God.
Know ye not, that to whom ye yield yourselves servants to obey, his servants ye are to whom ye obey; whether of sin unto death, or of obedience unto righteousness?
If you yield your body to be used for sin, you a servant of devil. Simple. If you yield yourself to live holy for God, you are a servant of righteousness. Simple.
…. Turn ye unto me….
This is a call back to fellowship and communion with God. Where is your first love for God, His Word, His presence and in Prayer? Indeed, we have turned away from God to pursuing the things of this world. Some have turned to Facebook, Twitter, and Whatsapp. Gone are the days when you read your Bible as a daily necessity. You can now Google for any message or go back to old notes to preach every Sunday. We have substituted God with ephemeral things of this world. God is calling us back to fellowship.
Many of us hear God clearly before. We are quick to know what God’s plan is because of our sensitivity in the spirit but gradually we begin to miss God’s voice because we are dull of hearing as a result of lack of communion.
Beloveth, have you thought recently why you have not been enjoying God’s leading and direction? Why are the doors that once opened now closed? Why are you now rejected where you have been celebrated? Why is your spouse having an unusual attitude towards you? It could be that God’s presence and glory that you enjoy when you spend time with him before has now departed. When God’s glory departs, honour will turn to dishonour. A celebrity will beg for performance. Love will turn to hatred. Joy turns sadness. Blissful union turns sore.
Turn ye to me……And I will turn to you….
Why won’t you turn from your sexual immorality to holy living? Forsake time spent on social media to study and meditate in the Word. Deny yourself of African Magic & Nollywood to build your prayer life. STAY AWAY FROM THAT UNHOLY BOYFRIEND OR GIRLFRIEND THAT HAS MADE GOD’S GLORY TO DEPART FROM YOUR LIFE. You are becoming empty daily under closed heaven because of your addiction.
Beloved, God has promised that he will turn to us when we turn away from our sin to Him in Righteousness and Holiness.
Are you ready to turn to God again?
Go on your knees and pray for forgiveness and restoration if you are serious about it.
Thanks for reading.
