Daniel 5:27 TEKEL; Thou art weighed in the balances, and art found wanting.

Dear Reader,
Like King Belshazzar have you not also been weighed in the balances and found wanting? ‘What balances?’ you might be asking; Let me mention some of them to you please…

The Balance of prayer; How is your prayer life? Do you still communicate with God the way you should? Do you talk to Him only when you have problems? Do you have the patience to listen to Him after going on and on with your words in prayers to Him? Is the fire on your prayer altar still burning? Or there is no prayer altar at all? Do you enjoy spending time talking to Him and hearing from Him as well? Or has praying just become a daily routine for you, a daily obligation you have to carry out in order to have a positive answer when persons ask you if you prayed? How long would you continue to pray selfish prayers not remembering the cause/challenges of others or the cause of God in your prayers? Have you my friend not been weighed in the ‘Balance of prayers’ and found wanting?

The Balance of studying God’s word; How is your Bible study life? When would you begin to truly study God’s word because you want to know Him? How long would you read the Bible with the sole aim of hand picking only God’s promises for His children and ignoring every other thing He has to say? How long will you keep studying God’s word not because you want to show yourself approved unto Him, but because you want to show off your Bible knowledge? How long will you study God’s word just to have a positive answer when people ask you? How long will you continue reading through the Bible as if it is a story book without studying it, just because you want to fulfill all righteousness? How long? Have you my friend not been weighed in this balance and found wanting?

The Balance of genuinely loving people the way Christ loves them; Do you love people the way Christ loves them? Are you able to forgive the trespasses of people the way Christ has, and forgives you your trespasses as well? When last did you share your substance with someone in need? When last did you check up on anybody to know how he/she is doing? When last did you genuinely talk to God about the challenges/suffering of people? When last did you speak encouraging words to someone? When last did you act kind to someone? When last? Have you not been weighed in this ‘Balance of genuinely loving people as Christ loves them and found wanting?

The Balance of sharing the Gospel with people; When last did you speak to anyone about the love of Christ? When last did you weep over dying souls in prayers? When last did you talk to God genuinely about the salvation of that individual’s soul? When last did the thought of sinners trooping in numbers daily into hell break your heart? Does it mean nothing to you that the ones for whom Jesus shed His blood on the Cross of Calvary for go down into hell daily without knowing the truth of God’s word and power of His love? Have you so soon forgotten my friend that as a believer, you have been placed as a watchman by God over the souls of men? Have you my friend not been weighed in the ‘Balance of soul winning and found wanting?’

• How about the Balance of repentance when you have defaulted? And the Balance of making restitutions when and where necessary as a believer?

If any of these words have mirrored your true state dear believer, it is time to repent, and renew your walk with God, and consecration to Him. It is time to pray for a revival upon your life. Delay could be dangerous. I pray that you would do the needful even now, and your end would never be like that of Belshazzar. Amen.

Revelation 2:4 Nevertheless I have somewhat against thee, because thou hast left thy first love. 5. Remember therefore from whence thou art fallen, and repent, and do the first works; or else I will come unto thee quickly, and will remove thy candlestick out of his place, except thou repent.

God Bless You.
