“Worth Considering” EARTH 4/8/19 (Across my desk from Joel today.)
“The earth is the Lord’s, and the fulness thereof…” (Psalm 24:1, KJV)
Living The Full Life
God wants you to live an abundant and satisfied life. He wants you to enjoy the fullness of the earth and life’s experiences. When you open your mind to new things and new situations, you are broadening your horizons and opening yourself to new opportunities. If you’re to become everything God has created you to be, you can’t get stuck in a rut and think you’ve reached your limits, doing the same thing the same way all the time. But when you open yourself to new people and new ideas, you are making room for God to reveal Himself to you. You are making room for Him to work in your life. Make the decision to explore something new this week. Take a different route home from work. Try something new on the menu at lunch. Be open to new people who may not necessarily look like you or act like you. Let God direct and expand your horizons. As you do, you’ll encounter new opportunities and live the satisfied, full life the Lord has in store for you!
A Prayer for Today
“Heavenly Father, I open my heart and mind to You today. I ask that You help me broaden my perspective so I can experience the full life You have for me. In Jesus’ Name. Amen.”
In Romans 1: 20 For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse:
So as I take this verse to be true and consider the beauty that I find on our planet earth; it seems to me that it is created to let my know in a very gentle loving way that there is Intelligent Design and that I should spend some special time on the three great questions: Where did I come from, why am I here and where am I headed in eternity? In themselves, the beauty of a sunset or the smell of lemon blossoms or a dive into the under water world of the sea are most beautiful. Especially the places that man has not claimed as home as yet. And they all give us clues as to what our Creator is like.
From a Biblical perspective the world has been created to allow those interested, through free will to find their Creator and choose to come into a humble, loving, obedient relationship with HIM. That the Earth has been created as a testing and training space in time where The Creator is creating and gathering a loving family to be made in HIS IMAGE. And every soul on earth has the opportunity to seek, knock and ask to become a part of that Holy Vision and Family. Or they may decide to use their time up in their own pursuits, visions and directions. So for me this world is simply a temporary space of spiritual education and testing, John 12:24-26, 17:20-26. That I am just passing through. And that is it totally up to us as to where we decide to live in eternity, whether in light or darkness. And that this EARTH will only last as long as needed and no longer to fulfill this purpose. The Holy Bible Teaches the following in
The Revelation 21:1 Then I saw a new [a]sky (heaven) and a new earth, for the former [b]sky and the former earth had passed away (vanished), and there no longer existed any sea.
2 And I saw the holy city, the new Jerusalem, descending out of heaven from God, all arrayed like a bride beautified and adorned for her husband;
3 Then I heard a mighty voice from the throne and I perceived its distinct words, saying, See! The abode of God is with men, and He will live (encamp, tent) among them; and they shall be His people, and God shall personally be with them and be their God.
4 God will wipe away every tear from their eyes; and death shall be no more, neither shall there be anguish (sorrow and mourning) nor grief nor pain any more, for the old conditions and the former order of things have passed away.
5 And He Who is seated on the throne said, See! I make all things new. Also He said, Record this, for these sayings are faithful (accurate, incorruptible, and trustworthy) and true (genuine).
6 And He [further] said to me, It is done! I am the Alpha and the Omega, the Beginning and the End. To the thirsty I [Myself] will give water without price from the fountain (springs) of the water of Life.
7 He who is victorious shall inherit all these things, and I will be God to him and he shall be My son.
8 But as for the cowards and the ignoble and the contemptible and the cravenly lacking in courage and the cowardly submissive, and as for the unbelieving and faithless, and as for the depraved and defiled with abominations, and as for murderers and the lewd and adulterous and the practicers of magic arts and the idolaters (those who give supreme devotion to anyone or anything other than God) and all liars (those who knowingly convey untruth by word or deed)—[all of these shall have] their part in the lake that blazes with fire and brimstone. This is the second death.
So How then should we LIVE? Yours in HIS great love and wonderful grace and mercy, Ken<>< www.Trinity-Aloha.org (Past Blogs may be found in this file under “WORTH CONSIDERING” )
