2 Samuel 11:8 -17
ARE YOU GETTING DEEP CONVICTIONS❓
2 Samuel 11:11
A conviction is a strong belief that governs ones decisions that one is willing even to die for it. “John Maxwell” describes it as a strong inward compass. History is replete with stories of men and women who changed their world by the power of CONVICTION.
The Scripture tells how Joseph’s CONVICTION enabled him to say ‘no’ to sexual pleasure and pressure.
Daniel’s CONVICTION led him to refuse tasting the dainties from the king’s table.
Esther’s CONVICTION led HER to risk her to appear before King Ahasuerus uninvited.
Our text illustrates the power of deep convictions. Uriah’s action were born out of deep personal CONVICTIONS. His convictions prevented him from enjoying the pleasure of intimacy with his wife when his fellow soldiers were sacrificing their lives on the battle field. His convictions could not allow him to rest while the ark of God’s covenant remains in the open field. Even under the influence of wine, his convictions made him to sleep on the floor with the servants of David instead of returning home.
Little wonder the Holy Spirit insisted on immortalising his name by bringing it into the genealogy of Jesus Christ. What are your CONVICTIONS? On which truth and values are your CONVICTIONS based? Today’s lesson offers us the opportunity of developing deeper CONVICTIONS.
If you are not standing for something, you can fall for anything. The other way round you cannot place something on nothing and expect it to hold
Lord, help me to develop deep convictions based on the revelation of your word.
