After Thoughts

September 18, 2012

Waking up this morning all I could think about was love, love, love and more love. I needed that feeling in my soul to keep an understanding of who I am and where I’m going. I know that in those feelings you must keep your thoughts clear to hear GOD (James 1:19-20 Wherefore, my beloved brethren, let every man be swift to hear, slow to speak, slow to wrath: For the wrath of man worketh not the righteousness of GOD).

 Thoughts of spending more time in the word and getting more of an understanding should come first(Luke 24:45 Then opened he their understanding, that they might understand the scriptures). The Bible also states: “It cannot be overstressed that knowledge of Jesus Christ is inseparably related to knowledge of the Scriptures”. We have to spend more time if we are searching for the relationship that we need with GOD. A relationship with him carries with it a privilege and responsibility to be the light unto others(1 John 1:5-7 This then is the message which we have heard of him, and declare unto you, that GOD is light, and in him is no darkness at all. If we say that we have fellowship with him, and walk in darkness, we lie, and do not the truth: But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship one with another, and the blood of Jesus Christ his Son cleanseth us from all sin). So with that, we must be relentless in pursuing the righteousness of the Lord. Being upright(Proverbs 11:6 The righteousness of the upright shall deliver them: but the transgressors shall be taken in their own naughtiness) and forthcoming. Having integrity and respect over thinking about what someone else thinks of you. Make up your mind. Don’t be ashamed of being who you are and who you will become. Don’t be like everyone else! ( John 15:19 If ye were of the world, the world would love his own: but because ye are not of the world, but I have chosen you out of the world, therefore the world hateth you.) We have an obligation to be a demonstration that the word of GOD works. Don’t give up! Don’t quit! Don’t lose your joy! Keep praying! Keep confessing! There is a promise attached to the word of God! I know that we not only want it, but we need it. We have to overcome our mind sets. Let’s eliminate the excuses! Stop saying that we’re not perfect and let’s strive to be perfect (Matthew 5:48 Be ye therefore perfect, even as your Father which is in heaven is perfect).

 I recall a Pastor saying; “It is in the overcoming of a thing that you prepare for a promotion”. Well, it’s time for us to make sure we overcome and be prepared for what the Lord has for us. Enlightenment has been given to us with all of his grace and mercy attached, use it. Understand that we must live by faith and in faithfulness (Romans 1:17 For therein is the righteousness of GOD revealed from faith to faith: as it is written, The Just Shall Live By Faith).

 With that being said…. Lamentations 3:41 Let us lift up our heart with our hands unto GOD in the heavens.

 Lord, We thank you. We thank you for keeping us through all that we’ve done. We thank you for knowing all things. For knowing that one day we would be lead out of the darkness and into your marvelous light. My GOD, My GOD. We praise you for your everlasting grace and your everlasting mercy. Thank you Jesus. Lord, We ask that you push and pull us toward the righteousness and joy that will fulfill our hearts. We ask that you keep our minds set to the promise of perfection. And will be forever mindful to give you all of the honor, all of the praise and all of the glory. In Jesus name. Amen.

Love, Forgive and Live in JESUS name
