SPIRITUAL FOOD FOR THOUGHT! & SPIRITUAL GROWTH! 2

 

 

“Your attitude should be the same as that of CHRIST JESUS:
Who, being in very nature GOD, did not consider equality with GOD something to be grasped, but made HIMSELF nothing, taking the very nature of a servant, being made in human likeness. And being found in appearance as a man, HE humbled HIMSELF and became obedient to death ~ even death on the cross! Therefore GOD exalted HIM to the highest place and gave HIM The NAME that is above every name, that at The NAME of JESUS every knee should bow, in Heaven and on earth and under the earth, and every tongue confess that JESUS CHRIST is LORD, to The GLORY of GOD The FATHER!”
Philippians 2 ~ WORD FOR TODAY ~

 

 

~ THOUGHT FOR TODAY ~

 

JESUS CHRIST is our ONLY PERFECT example. He was both miraculously divine and yet still a sinless human man. He never did, said, or thought anything wrong. How amazing! He died upon the cross & rose with ALL POWER to SAVE us from eternal damnation… He overcame sin in the flesh for mankind. For this we should be eternally grateful. He was RIGHTEOUSNESS personified in the purest highest form ever. It is because of HIM we too are able to overcome sin in the flesh as we submit to HIS WILL & HIS WAY. He truly is THE GLORY of GOD!

 

 

Many serve the Lord to be served. Many serve to have power and authority over others. A dedicated committed servant of the Lord is willing to serve the Lord with gladness. They realize that absolutely nothing is hidden to Him. They also know that the Church belongs to God.  He or she seeks above all to be pleasing to the Lord. We all are accountable to the Lord for our actions. It is so very important to build a strong sure foundation upon the Word of God! Whenever we stand upon His Word He stands with us.

 

 

Serving the Lord does not mean that we are to make others or ourselves feel comfortable in sin. Sin actually separates us from God. We are supposed to “Walk in the Light.” We can choose to call upon our Lord and Savior to Help us anytime, anywhere 24/7. HIS WORD is necessary Essential Spiritual Food for our  body, mind and soul. His Word is alive and it quickens our souls. It is important to hide His Word within our hearts.  This is what keeps us from  practicing sin. As we embrace and implement its Truth in our daily lives we becomes spiritually stronger. God wants us to be whole!

 

“Therefore whoever HEARS these sayings of MINE, and DOES them, I WILL liken to him to a wise man who built his house on The ROCK; and the rain descended, the floods came, and the winds blew and beat on that house; and it DID NOT fall, for it was founded on THE ROCK!” MATTHEW 6

 

 

We should make a sincere attempt to live in anticipation each day as though our Lord were going to return. Our main focus in life should always be the Lord. This actually is what helps us to better navigate through the maze of life. God is Omniscient. His Word lights our path. Make it a point to regularly and consistently spend time with the Lord in His Word. This is how we continuously grow in His grace, love, wisdom and understanding. We should daily seek the direction of the Lord in all areas of our lives.

 

We should not want our Lord to be a stranger whenever we see Him face to face. Therefore Live Everyday; “To GOD Be the GLORY!”

 

Serve the Lord because HE deserves to be served. “For he that is called in the Lord, being a servant, is the Lord’s freeman: likewise also he that is called, being free, is Christ’s servant.” I Corinthians 7

 

Upon the profession of our FAITH HIS HOLY SPIRIT becomes alive within us and HELPS us to rise above sin. God has created each of us with a purpose in mind. It is our choice to discover His Will for our lives. We All need Him as Savior and Lord. It is a BLESSING & a PRIVILEGE to be able to call upon HIM as our Personal Savior. “For ALL of us have sinned and fallen short of The GLORY of GOD!” Romans 3.

 

Let’s not continue to make excuses for any sin or shortcomings. Instead learn to call upon JESUS! Whenever sin beckons, allow the Savior to help you rise above it. God wants us to be complete in Him. This is how we become better people. This is how we become whole. When we live to please the Lord we will always eventually become victorious! Always remember;“What can wash away my sin; nothing but The BLOOD of JESUS! What can make me whole again; nothing but the BLOOD of JESUS! O precious is the flow that makes me white as snow. No other HELP I KNOW nothing but the BLOOD of JESUS!”

~ “IF you have any encouragement from being united with CHRIST, IF any comfort from HIS LOVE, IF any fellowship with The SPIRIT, IF any tenderness and compassion, then make my JOY complete by being like-minded, having the same LOVE, being one in Spirit & Purpose. Do nothing out of selfish ambition or vain conceit, but in humility consider others better than yourselves. Each of you should look not only to your own interests, but also to the interests of others!” Philippians 2 ~ WORD FOR TODAY! ~

 

 

~ THOUGHT FOR TODAY! ~

The real purpose of life is to daily draw closer to the LORD. To diligently seek HIS WILL & HIS WAY above everything & everyone. We know not what tomorrow may bring? But we can have complete confidence in the Lord as we grow in His Grace & Love.

 

We can build a strong firm foundation upon the Word of the Lord! Believing His Word and embracing His principles in our daily life are key. As we Trust Him we walk by Faith. We also continuously grow in His Grace. His wisdom, knowledge, love  and peace will manifest and multiply within us.

 

Here in Philippians we find the Apostle Paul giving us further insight into what is very important. Spiritual unity was the desired goal. GOD knows where each of us are coming from. HE KNOWS why we do what we do or do not do. His Word teaches us that; “Whatever you DO, DO it as unto The LORD!”

 

Sometimes we as Believers need to show a contrast to whatever the world is doing. Many have conformed.  God’s Word is being fulfilled right before our very eyes.  Know this; “the wheat & the tares are growing together.   It is GOD who will eventually do the separating. Christ Jesus is coming back for His Church. Nowadays it can be hard to distinguish on a surface level between the world & GOD’S CHURCH.  Therefore  PRAY for increased DISCERNMENT! 

 

 

WE MUST DAILY WALK BY FAITH

 

It is not the broad crowded road that leads to the LORD but the NARROW PATH where there are fewer travelers.  Remember; It was the majority that opted to kill CHRIST JESUS.   Many of the  religious leaders were spiritually blind and even  joined together with some of the worldly leaders in their attempt to control and hinder Him.  They were threatened because He did not comply to their ways. Many simply sat on the fence. Notice how JESUS was  misunderstood, mistreated, persecuted as well as rejected…   All along He knew exactly  what was going on. God is so amazing.  Jesus was never not GOD! He always had the power to overcome what was happening to Him. Yet He remained humble, faithful and loyal to the will of our Heavenly Father. 

 

It is important to be aware of whatever is happening all around you wherever you are.  For we are living in a spiritual war zone. As we walk by faith, we are to stay daily adorned in the Spiritual Armor. It is  GOD we worship led by His precious Holy Spirit! We are  always supposed to “WORSHIP  THE LORD IN SPIRIT AND IN TRUTH!” whenever and wherever we worship.  It is marvelous and comforting  to know we daily serve the  Almighty Omniscient God! 

 

 

Humility means at times taking a back seat. Humility means at times others will misunderstand you. Humility means sometimes we have to wait.  Humility also means you will have to take a stand. While we are waiting we can acquire more patience. Patience is a virtue few understand.  Yes, sometimes you will have to encourage yourself.  But know also God asssures us; “For where two or three are gathered together in My Name; I am in the midst!”  Matthew 18  God is forever faithful!  Know GOD keeps all His promises. We must resist responding hastily and learn to trust God. For He will lead us all the way as well as, “supply all your need according to HIS riches in GLORY by CHRIST JESUS.”    Philippians 4.  Truly, God is our forever Good Shepherd! 

 

 

When we compare ourselves to JESUS we ALL fall short! Therefore there is always room for improvement.  It is only by HIS GRACE we are SAVED! Each day is an opportunity to grow in His grace, wisdom, knowledge nd understanding.  As we spend time with the GOD in HIS WORD and embrace and implement HIS TRUTH within our daily lives we become stronger. Our faith & trust in Him is also strengthened.  Our desire  should always be to please Him and daily seek His Will and His Way above the ways of this world. For this world is on a slippery slope. 

 

 

Humility is not a position of weakness. Yet, many will  often mistake humility for low self esteem. It is a position of strength. It is a position of self control. Yes, a place of meekness.  It is always important to seek the approval of GOD over that of man/woman.  Many live for others to validate them. DO NOT let the world determine your fate or your lifestyle. Live each day before, “An Audience of One,” knowing that GOD is everywhere you are. You can be certain of GOD’S CALL upon your life as you walk in accordance to HIS WORD. For; “It is a LAMP unto our feet and a LIGHT unto our PATH.”  HE will never lead any of us to do anything that goes against HIS WORD! This also why it is so very important to know God and His Word for yourself. We can be certain of  God’s marvelous omnipresence.  For He will never leave nor forsake us.

 

THANK YOU LORD for YOUR LIVING WORD JESUS CHRIST & YOUR HOLY SPIRIT YOUR COMFORTER! ~
