Good Morning......... It's the weekend!!! Just the fact that you and I woke up this morning, is incredible! Why, you ask? Because it is proof that God is not finished with us yet! His Plan for us, includes TODAY!!! Let's LIVE IT WELL, shall we?
OH, this life........ All of it's ups and downs, storms and crashing waves, fears and misgivings. The choices and decisions we have to make can be overwhelming, to say the least! Our situations and circumstances change CONSTANTLY! When we are faced with a choice, and a present action, the important thing to remember is, IT'S CONSEQUENCES!!! We are NOT free from them.
We will reap what we sow. (Galatians 6:7) If we play with fire, we WILL get burned! So, why would be even bother? And, since we reap the consequences of our actions, we might as well just choose what is RIGHT! Choose the things of GOD, not this world! Choose LIFE, not death! Life is just to short to be miserable, don't you think?
Go ahead, give God your misery! Give Him all your failures! All the broken pieces of your life! Give Him your weaknesses, and He will be YOUR STRENGTH! This world will make our heads spin, but God is our Peace! He calms the storms, moves mountains, and makes a Way even if there seems to be NO WAY!
People think they have to STRIVE to be Worthy enough for God to accept them, Worthy enough to go to Heaven! WHAT A LIE FROM THE PIT OF HELL!!! Striving will NOT SAVE US. No amount of "good works" can build a stairway into Heaven. THE ONLY THING THAT MATTERS IS JESUS!!! He paid the debt we could never pay. HE DIED FOR OUR SINS, PERIOD........
We either accept Him, or we don't! We either follow His Ways, or we don't! The choice is OURS to make, and remember........................ THE CONSEQUENCES of that choice! When we stand before God at the end of this life, will we hear Him say, "Well done, good and faithful servant!" (Matthew 25:23) Will He see Jesus standing next to you, with you covered in the Blood of Jesus? OR, will God turn His back on you, and honor your decision of standing ALONE???
Beloved, know this............... God is not complicated! It's your willing heart He wants! He simply asks you to WALK WITH HIM! Why do we make things so difficult, when all we need to do is BE STILL? One day everything is going smoothly, then we hit a speed bump, and our first reaction is to PANIC! To think WE have to work it all out! We fear and doubt and worry!
Today, give it all to God and LIVE! Walk in the Freedom that is yours through Christ! Will we fail Him? YES! But, will He stop Loving us? NOT A CHANCE!!! We do not have the power to change God's Affection for us! So, STOP TRYING! Let go of all the chaos, and live in PEACE! Do not let anyONE or anyTHING, steal your JOY! Forgive quickly! Be Kind always! Speak LIFE! Play well with others! Love God, and Love people! Be who God made you to be - someone out there is counting on it! Don't hold a grudge! Remember, Jesus died for THEM, too! "And now, dear brothers and sisters, one final thing. Fix your thoughts on what is true, and honorable, and right, and pure, and lovely, and admirable. Think about things that are excellent and worthy of praise." (Philippians 4:8) Let God have you, and let God Love you! If you will let Him, He will BREATHE YOU BACK TO LIFE!!!
