Lord is saying: Good you've got it! You are putting your trust
in me and taking your eyes from the things of this world. Remember
that I cannot fail and that I have overcome the world. Do not
fear and tremble at what man can do to you or the circumstances
that you see around you. All these shall fail but my word and
promise to you will last forever. Therefore focus your eyes on
me and feed your heart with the good promises I have given you,
knowing that my word will not fail you in any respect.
Isaiah 51:6 -8 Lift up your eyes to the heavens, and look upon
the earth beneath: for the heavens shall vanish away like smoke,
and the earth shall wax old like a garment, and they that dwell
therein shall die in like manner: but my salvation shall be for
ever, and my righteousness shall not be abolished.
unto me, ye that know righteousness, the people in whose heart
is my law; fear ye not the reproach of men, neither be ye afraid
of their revilings.
For the moth shall eat them up like a garment, and the worm shall
eat them like wool: but my righteousness shall be for ever, and
my salvation from generation to generation.
we willing to pay the price?
salvation costs us nothing, it is a free gift. But it cost God
His Son to die on the cross, and Jesus the most painful death..
Yet if we are to be used of God it will cost us everything. Luke
14:33 says ...
likewise, whosoever he be of you that forsakes not all that he
has, he cannot be my disciple.
be a disciple of Jesus we must be willing for our affections to
be such that Jesus means more to us than anything on this earth,
even our own lives. If we live it is for the sake of Christ, If
we die it is for the sake of Christ. His cause and purpose, the
furtherance of the Kingdom of God must be paramount and everything
else must take a second place. We know we have drifted if our
focus, aims and purposes are on anything other than the glory
of God, His will and good pleasure. I once read that if we are
to make good decisions we are to ask ourselves "Will the
end of this thing I am about to undertake result in the glory
would be a good thing to use this measure for the things that
have cluttered our lives and to purge out anything that has seeped
in to distract us and to pollute our motives.
happens when we seek God's kingdom first........ all the other
things are added to us!!!! So if you have been taken up with cares
and worries of this life, remember He who looks after the sparrows
will surely take care of you and your family Get your focus and
motives back onto God's purpose for you...... He will not let
you down. His promises are true and He is faithful .... you can
rely on Him completely... He will not fail!!
