Greetings in the Matchless Name of Jesus Christ!
This is your "WORD for the WEEK!"....
Many, if not all of us have heard or made the statement, "I'm tired of the same old..same old...;" I want more out of life! Well, if this is true then let me help you get what you've been asking for. In Matthew 6:33, the bible clearly states that we, "Must Seek Ye First the Kingdom of God and ALL of His Righteousness and EVERYTHING ELSE Will be ADDED To US!" This is awesome because it's crystal clear that we as believers have a road map to our blessings. God is simply saying:
"If you want more out of life, then look for me, seek me..desire me and I'll add it to your life!" It's just that simple!!!
We make it too hard. Here's why: Many times we are hesitant to seek after God because we are afraid of what we might lose. Yet, we MUST understand that what we may lose is NO COMPARISON to what we will GAIN from GOD! Church, everything that we need and have in life is provided for us simply by seeking GOD 1st!
This means we have to place GOD as PRIORITY #1 over and above anything or anyone else. God is before your job. God is before your family. God is before your social life and your friends! When you choose to place GOD as PRIORITY #1 you will begin to see and experience a great shift in your life because you are aligning your life with God's Will.
Understand that it doesn't matter whether or not you look like you have it together. It doesn't matter whether you are seemingly busy doing church work! What matters is if He is #1 in your heart and is demonstrated in your consistent actions. Your faith-filled actions will show in the work that you do for the kingdom! So, if you want more out of life, then be willing to give up some things in order to get some things!
So, what's holding you back? What are you holding onto that needs to be let go? Who's in your way? How many jobs are you working and you still have NO time for the Kingdom? Are you always tired, irritable and cranky? Do you feel a VOID in your Life? If so, then you should want more out of life!!!!
Ask yourself this question???...What am I willing to give up in order to GET MORE OUT OF LIFE! Now, think on these things.
Yours in Christ,
