'The weapons we fight with are not the weapons of the world. On the contrary, they have divine power to demolish strongholds. We demolish arguments and every pretension that sets itself up against the knowledge of God, and we take captive every thought to make it obedient to Christ. ' 2 Corinthians 10:4-5
Hello and Welcome. Hope you had a good weekend or a good day 🙂
Let’s sit outside the vault, now I want to give you something different. Yes! well to be honest, your imagination and I hope you use it because I want you to indulge me or should I say yourself. Never mind, let’s continue our journey and it is outside…..
See the sky, see the birds in the air, see the land in front of you with different trees and let us glorify our Father.
My hope always is to do good to please God, but as human beings we can turn it into an idol. See the dilemma here. Now Jesus says do good not to be seen by others. Otherwise you have no reward from your Father in Heaven. Matthew 6:1.
Let your left hand, don’t know what the right does. Now it is hard, they are so close together I open my purse with the left and my right is already looking at what is going on. It then grabs the purse and they both fight for attention. Do you see the dilemma here?
How can I overcome this?
Jesus gave the answer: A model Prayer Our Father in Heaven Hallowed be Your Name Your Kingdom come Your Will be done On earth as it is in Heaven Give us Your daily bread And forgive us our debts As we forgive our debtors And do not lead us into temptation But deliver us from the evil one For Yours is the kingdom and the power and the glory forever, Amen
Wait a minute, the prayer doesn’t involve me.. BUT it does the kingdom of God is for everyone
The prayer starts with the important thing in our life, GOD.
We praise HIM, we worship HIM and we adore HIM. For the kingdom of GOD to come on earth means we need to get closer to HIM. He is not far off, just take a seat with HIM. He wants to have breakfast, lunch and dinner and all snacks we eat.
And the next part is about the US, that includes you and I, this is good news. Incase, you have not noticed the NAME of JESUS doesn’t have an I in it BUT it does have an US – Just Experience Salvation Together (US) in the BODY. So it can be hard as we are around people and sometimes you want to talk but think before you speak and use wisdom. Will this glorify God or will it cause my brother or sister to sin, don’t know about you but I will not want to be the reason for any one sinning.
God lead me not into temptation Put a guard over my mouth Give me what I need for today So that I will not sin against You Renew my strength Let Your mercy and goodness follow me And come to the tabernacle of my heart.
I do love the treasures that God has given each of us. I am talking about the mind. It is a treasure for it stores up things off God or things of the world. The things of God can easily be stolen if we let the world treasure be at the front. If we keep storing the things of the world, they can easily destroy the treasures from God, for the enemy will love nothing more than to come and just destroy, steal all that is from God and what He has given us.
You then forget your purpose in life and as I have come to know the graveyard is very rich with treasures and ideas that never took courage to step out of the comfort zone.
Lay the treasures with God in Heaven And we find our purpose Guard our hearts Take time out and enjoy the sunshine, sit with God. Enjoy His presence, smile and He smiles back Sometimes we forget to breathe No other day than to bask in the presence of our God I love life, but you have to remember it is a smoke Think about it, a smoke in your hand doesn’t last long It disappears in your eyes and sometimes where has it gone Yes time flies, no one knows what the future holds Like the smoke that disappears in your hand so is life Enjoy it for you do not know what life brings tomorrow I do urge you to trust GOD and do take HIM seriously For He holds both your soul and body
