Heb.13:16 (MSG) “Make sure you don’t take things for granted and go slack in working for the common good; share what you have with others. God takes particular pleasure in acts of worship—a different kind of “sacrifice…” (emphasis added)
Attraction is a very interesting phenomenon. But how does attraction work? Physics tells us that like poles repel and unlike poles attract. But when it comes to life, there are certain things you can do to attract certain things. What do you need to do to attract flies? Sit with trash and they will come; you do not need to pray or fast for the flies, they will come willingly. As nauseating as that might sound, it is very similar to our relationships. There are two sides to attraction; there are things you can do to attract and there are things you can do to repel. However, note that as they say, beauty is in the eye of the beholder. One person’s response could be – never! But another person’s response could be – forever!
This means that we can be deliberate about the things we want to attract into our lives. In your family, what are you attracting? How you behave determines what you attract. Let’s take the husband and wife scenario for instance; the man shouts at the woman for whatever reason and the woman shouts back at him. Guess what? That woman has attracted something because the man is going to want to stand up to the match. Then what happens? Am I saying if a husband shouts at his wife she should keep quiet? Exactly! The reason is, for men – certain things attract certain things, and for women – certain things attract certain things.
For instance, if a man talks down at his wife and treats her shabbily throughout the day. When he shows up at night, he would have succeeded in repelling and not attracting. There are things that you do that repel and there are things you do that attract. There is a couple that the man had not touched his wife for about three years because she was doing certain things that repel him. He needed a huge deliverance and he got it to the glory of God.
Similarly, in our relationship with God, there are things you can do that can attract God. There are things you can do that can attract fire. 1 Kings 18:20-40a (please read), shows us how to attract fire from heaven. The question is, do you want fire from heaven? Please read 1 Kings 18:26 “…Then they called on the name of Baal from morning until noontime, shouting, “O Baal, answer us!” But there was no reply of any kind” (emphasis added). Every satanic priest that sets up an altar against you, your destiny, as they call, there will be no reply of any kind, in Jesus Name.
Prayer: Lord, may everything I do consistently attract and not repel You, in Jesus Name. Amen!
