Is there anything that is taking God’s first place in your life? Remove every Idol in your life. Idols come in many forms and not just in graven images. Did you know that you can make yourself into an Idol by serving you? If we want God to bless us, we must be faithful servants. That means getting rid of whatever that’s taking first place in our lives besides him. We cannot serve two masters. We will either serve one or the other. It is written in
Matthew 6:14: that “No man can serve two masters: for either he will hate the one, and love the other; or else he will hold to the one, and despise the other. Ye cannot serve God and mammon”.
Keep God first place in your life. Do not be hesitant or stubborn to get rid of that thing in your life that’s hindering your from God’s blessing. Cast them away and make room for God to be #1 in your life. He’s waiting 🙂
Everyday is special. Make it count by doing something to make God happy. Normally, we do things to make ourselves or other people happy. Make God smile by not only by your words and faith, but by your action. Find ways to get closer to him by praying more, reading his word a little longer or simply create new goals to evolve in your relationship with him. Draw closer to him while his presence is near. Repent while there’s still a chance. Repentance is a gift that should not be taken for granted (especially in the last days) What can you do that’s out of your norm to please him today? Things may not always go your way, but part of being spiritually mature means you will still do the right thing even when the wrong thing is happening. Allow God to transform and pick up the pieces of your life. We cannot continue to label and limit God to just our understanding, thoughts, opinions, ideology and philosophies. He is God and he shall not share his glory with another! Commit and surrender your all to him and he will surely move in your life. Don’t cling on to your own life, for you will surely lose it. Save it by giving it to him. Do not allow your soul to deteriorate slowly.
Discernment is very important to have in this day and age. It’s a precious gift from God. With so much chaos going on in the world, this is not a time to be sleep. We must be on guard at all times. Don’t allow your pride to deceive you in handling things your way. God always knows how to handle things better than we do. (That includes vengeance) Satan is very crafty. He comes to steal, kill and destroy. Always stay in prayer, even when you don’t feel like it or have to. Mathew 26:40-41 says, And he cometh unto the disciples, and findeth them asleep, and saith unto Peter, What, could ye not watch with me one hour? Watch and pray, that ye enter not into temptation: the spirit indeed is willing, but the flesh is weak.
This scripture is interesting because it always surprised me on how people can be sleeping in the presence of Jesus. Are you sleeping when God is calling you to pray, fast and obey? Are you sleeping when you hear his voice of instruction? Sleep can cause you to miss out on the biggest blessing that can come your way. Wake up and arise! For you must be prepared and ready for what’s on the way. His strength and power will keep you in perfect peace.
Never forget about God in all the days of your life. Young, old, rich or poor. Don’t allow pride to blind and deceive you from taking God’s wisdom instead of your own. You need God to absolutely take your next breath, heart beat, move and step. No matter what blessing may fall upon your life, you will still need him. He gives you your health, strength, joy, sanity and peace of mind for everyday life. Even if God gives you everything you want, sometimes he will give it to you to show that you still need him. You can have everything in this world but it will not mean anything without God. It will appear that you will have everything on the outside while empty on the inside. There will come a time in where your money cannot fix everything and it will become meaningless. Money and material things cannot fill void. Don’t gain the world in exchange for your soul and identity. You cannot escape God’s love. Return to him and give him your all. Never forget, for he is the Alpha and Omega of the universe. He is God. Heaven and earth shall fade but his word is forever.
