Your mouth can cause a lot of destruction if you don’t watch what you say. Psalm 141:3 says “Set a guard over my mouth, LORD; keep watch over the door of my lips.” If we look at the life of Jesus. He only did what He see the Father do. How many times do we do what the Father does or do we continue in our own wickedness. If partake of this world and become more like it, then we’ll speak like the world and therefor sow destruction. If we meditate on the word of God, day and night as the book of Joshua says, then we’ll speak to one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs. Scripture also say that we must encourage one another daily, as long as it is called “Today,”. But we can only do that if we are in tune with the Spirit of God. We’re called to speak life and the only way of doing that is hearing what the Father wants us to say.
Things would start to change if we start speaking life.
Do you find Jesus to be enough in your life? or when the tough gets going, you find yourself running to other things for help. God has come to give us life to the full. When we encounter a crises or any other situation. He is the one we should call. He is the one with all the wisdom in the world and will be more than willing to help and guide us in the right direction.
He is enough.
“Fools have the wrong tools”
Quite a radical statement, but true at the same time. If you don’t have the right tools in life, as a Christian, you struggle to get through life. The moment you get to a church, slot in and make sure that you get yourself equipped. If you get equipped, it will help you to approach believers and non believers when sharing the word. Sometime we need some guidance in how to make disciples or how to evangelize.
For long I didn’t make use of my church’s equipping tools, because I was always to busy. Now recently I started to go through some stuff and I really have felt enriched by it.
Don’t avoid what is given to you to grow in God. Pursue it and get equipped
We are called to walk in the path that God has planned for us, but sometimes we are just a little to full of our selves and that causes us to disobey His way. We are called to walk the way that God has for us, because it is the best way. He knows what is best for us and all we need to do is to trust in His plan. When facing hardships we can’t just blame God. We need to embrace the trials and tribulations, because it is bringing us closer to Him.
As scripture says: “In their hearts humans plan their course, but the LORD establishes their steps.”
As revelation states that Jesus is standing at the door and knocking, but are we opening. Sometimes in our lives we tend to try and control Jesus with a remote control and when we need Him. Afterwards we will be like “ah thank you Jesus”. That is not how we ought to treat Jesus. He wants to be apart of our lives and therefor we must give ourselves to Him as living sacrifices.
Let us not treat Jesus with contempt, but look to Him in ever situation.
Are we more concerned about what to wear to church or do we rather look to prepare our heart for receiving the word of God? Do we fall into that trap of spending more money on ourselves than investing it in the kingdom of God? Are we being good stewards of time here on earth? or are we using it to satisfy our own needs?
God’s image needs to be displayed towards the world, not the materialistic things. For what ever you do, in word or deed, let it be done in the name of the Lord, but don’t you dare use that phrase to justify your actions.
Time for playing is over! We need to lay aside our will and let God’s will be done. We are to aware of ourselves that we miss what God has planned for us.
Wake up church! The time has come that we spend more time in the word of God than anywhere else. For those who are friends of this world can’t be friends of God.
We need to start to get serious about the Lord
