Good morning Lovelies. Shall we pray? Father God, we come to You Lord, as humbly as we know how. Removing ourselves out of the way so that we may hear a word from You Lord. Father whatever it is that You would have for me to say Lord I ask that You allow it to reach whoever may need it on today Lord. Even if it is only one person Lord, that is the person that You wanted me to touch on this morning. Heal, touch strengthen and deliver as only You can. It is in the Mighty Matchless Name of Jesus. Amen!
I survived because He has a plan for me. All my bad relationships, the bad financial choices, the death of loved ones, the backstabbing from my friends and acquaintances, the negative thoughts or the lack of support, I made it because I am Blessed! I release and let go of all past hurts, misunderstandings and grudges because I am Blessed! I recognize them as the illusions they are, for God is all there is. Whether you know it or not you were not created just to coexist and live and do whatever you feel you want to do. You do not belong to yourself. God has a purpose for you that is greater than your wishes, ambition, occupation, or even your happiness. The word purpose is mentioned 42 times in the Bible. Have you ever asked yourself “why are you here?” What is your purpose of living?” Where do you go from here?”
You were created for God’s pleasure-worship. Being a true worshiper of God is one of the highest honors and greatest privileges you can ever have. To worship God is to re-adjust and reform our disordered lives and bring them in line with His perfect life as revealed. There is something beautiful and mysterious about a worshiping life. It can change a dry and thirsty land into a land of refreshing streams. As my Pastor has said those that worship God can worship Him anywhere. I know I have had many worship experiences on my job, in my car and even in the grocery store. You never know what may spark a worship experience but believe me when I say that the experience is truly unbelievably overwhelming in an awesome way. Just writing this post I have begun to reflect on the things that God has done and I can barely continue to type.
I try to meditate throughout each day on God’s goodness. Even on my job, I try to perform my job as if I’m performing it for the Lord. Worship should be an on-going practice. It is not just something that is done at church. There are three ways that we should worship God. Individually, as a family and as a congregation. Many are cold and bored in Sunday worship because they failed to worship God individually and as a family during the week.
Every time I think about the near-death experiences that I’ve had I get excited because I know that God Kept me here a little while longer because He has more for me to do. And I thank Him! I do know that I was made to serve Him and I try to live in this way every day. I continue to ask Him, “God what is it you want me to do today?” I know that He has a mission for me and He is revealing it to me daily. He has kept me here to serve Him. Spiritual growth and maturity are never the end of the Christian life. The word “Savior” means Jesus gave Himself for us and the word “Lord” means we give ourselves to Him in return. We grow in Christ so we can give as Christ. Aside from Bible study, prayer, attendance in church and giving-what can you say your ministry is? The average lifespan is 27, 375 days. Don’t you think that it would be wise to use those days fulfilling God’s purpose for your life? He has kept you here for a reason!!
“God is Spirt, and those who worship Him must worship in spirit and truth.” John 4:24
“You are worthy, O Lord, to receive glory and honor and power; for You created all things, and by Your will they exist and were created.” Revelation 4:11
Live life, give people hope and share your heart, wisdom, and resources. Never place a period where God says there should be a comma.
As always peace and blessings, be safe. Take advantage of your opportunities but never allow your opportunities to take advantage of you. Remember God loves you and so do I. ©krw 1.15.19
