Read: Genesis 3:1-6
To divulge is to tell a secret, to make public, to communicate to the public, so that it becomes generally known. The serpent came to test Eve about the instructions that God gave her, but she failed, because she opened her mouth wide to divulge everything God had said to them to keep them on track in fulfilling their God-given purpose.
There are many serpents in human form this day. They are going about to truncate destinies and purposes. However, most of the time, we are the ones who open the door of our hearts and mouths to them before they can get to work. It is not every friend, family member or Pastor that you must reveal your God-given plan to. Be wise! Joseph divulged his God-given dreams to his siblings and father; he suffered for it (Genesis 37:7ff). Had he been silent, he might not have gone through those terrible experiences in the hands of those wicked brothers.
Beware, who you divulge your vision to. Learn from the young Saul who said so much but keep the most sensitive part of God’s revelation in his heart (1 Samuel 10:15,16). A vision untimely divulged or launched can end up being truncated, unfulfilled. Most of the time, the intention of the unsuspected destiny-destroyers is to prevent one from fulfilling one’s purpose and destiny. Don’t become a prey!
Remember: you cannot blame God for whatever befalls you, if and when you go out of your way to do what pleases you with your destiny, against God’s plan, purpose and directives. There is always consequence for every action, reaction, or inaction.
Adam and Eve made the worst mistake of their lives, and we are bearing the consequences today. Samson failed in fulfilling his destiny, because he divulged his God-given mandate to the enemy (Judges 14:16,17, 16:15-20); he died with the enemies of God, instead of him destroying them. be wise! guide and guard the door of your mouth!
1. Lord Jesus, please help me guard the door of my mouth.
2. I refuse to open my mouth anyhow, henceforth, to the enemies of my destiny, in Jesus’ name.
3. Father, help our church leaders/counsellors to maintain due confidentiality in their dealings with members and others.
