Lord is saying: Fear not, I am with you and for you. I will be
your strength and I will get you through. Go forward boldly knowing
I will not let you down.
THE GATHERING TOGETHER.
Even as the chicks gather under the wings of the hen who is their
mother so shall all MY people gather together unto ME. How excellent
will be that time, a time that is precious to MY HEART...Read
Minutes are like pennies.
Once they are spent... they are spent.
The question is what do have we to show for them? Something lasting
and eternal or a load of rubbish that clutters and weighs us down.
Do we spend our 'pennies' on quality, or on stuff that does us
When we spend our time reading the word of God, in intimacy with
God or listening to good teachings, we are building our lives
on a foundation that will never crumble. No matter what happens
in our life we will stand strong.
Some people think that they don't want to become 'religious' by
having a schedule of discipline. There is a big difference between
coming under the law and in disciplining ourselves in the things
of God. The first is a "don't do that or you'll be punished"
The second is "You don't have to earn God's approval but
if you do this, you will understand more and enter into what He
has bought for you on the cross"
The prodigal son wasted his money on things that brought him great
poverty and pain. It wasn't to do with the wrath of his father
that caused his problems, but that he used his allotted currency
(time, inheritance, energy, emotions) on destructive things. Discipline
is when we use our currency wisely. Maybe we aren't on drugs or
drink or gambling, but are we wasting more than enough time on
things that aren't particularly upbuilding when we could set that
time aside for something that will last forever? We all have the
same amount of time in a day. Its up to each one of us how we
spend that time. If we are doing one thing we can't be doing another.
Minutes are like pennies. Once they are spent... they are spent.
