ALOHA FAMILY & FRIENDS,   Beloved of God,   John 3:16-18

FAITH THAT IS REAL, WORKS,,   “WORTH CONSIDERING”   1/9/20,  (Across my desk today.)

Today’s Scripture
“He who comes to God must believe that He is, and that He is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him.” Heb.11:6
What’s in Your Picture Frame?

The greatest key to living a life filled with God’s blessings and favor is to keep God first place in your life. When you make it your highest priority to please Him, you can expect to live a blessed, fulfilled life. Notice who God rewards. Not people who half-heartedly seek Him or who only seek Him when they have a problem. God rewards people who diligently seek Him. Psalm 34:10 adds, “Those who seek the LORD lack no good thing.” When you seek God daily with your whole heart, you won’t be able to outrun the good things of God.

God has a reward that’s just waiting to be released to you, but you have to meet the demands of the reward. God makes it so easy: “If you will just seek Me—if you will get up in the morning and thank Me, read My Word, and make an effort to please Me—I will give you the reward.”

A Prayer for Today
“Father, thank You that I can come to You by faith, knowing that as I seek You, You will reward me. Thank You for the blessings and favor that are mine as I keep You first place in my life. I believe that I will lack no good thing. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.”

My Thoughts:
The whole of God’s Creation is made and held together by faith.  Like Hebrews 11 teaches us that “FAITH” is both substance and evidence. Our Creator God is in the process of trying to teach us how faith really works.  But often we say we believe in God,  (Intelligent design,)  but in our efforts and life we totally ignore HIM and what HE has given us to find in HIM.  And even when we know exactly what HE wants of us, we go and find something else to do.  So basically at most we usually have a touch of head understanding but not Heart Faith and that really does not work. And then we blame God when our buildings fall apart.

Of course the head is the gateway to the heart.  Truth in, truth out,  Junk in,  junk out.  As a person really thinks in their heart of hearts that is who they really are.  We are instructed that true faith comes by ingesting the Word of God.   So where is your comfort zone.  There is an old song called “Charity” that says,  “Love sings, when Jesus prevails.   When Jesus prevails in your life do you feel like singing?  1 Cor. 13 is a great chapter on the nature of God for us to consider along with the 11th Chapter of the Book of Hebrews.  So every day, we are encouraged to keep the Holy Spirit in the primary place of helping us in deciding what to do with the day.  The enemy and our friends and even our family will come with other things for us to do.  And if we go with our emotions or our flesh the time is wasted.  

Here are a few scriptures to consider for your time:   Therefore be imitators of God [copy Him and follow His example], as well-beloved children [imitate their father]. And walk in love, [esteeming and delighting in one another] as Christ loved us and gave Himself up for us, a slain offering and sacrifice to God [for you, so that it became] a sweet fragrance. But immorality (sexual vice) and all impurity [of lustful, rich, wasteful living] or greediness must not even be named among you, as is fitting and proper among saints (God’s consecrated people).  Eph.5:1-3,   “Therefore He says, Awake, O sleeper, and arise from the dead, and Christ shall shine (make day dawn) upon you and give you light.15 Look carefully then how you walk! Live purposefully and worthily and accurately, not as the unwise and witless, but as wise (sensible, intelligent people),16 Making the very most of the time [buying up each opportunity], because the days are evil.  Eph.5:14-16.   Furthermore, brethren, we beg and admonish you in [virtue of our union with] the Lord Jesus, that [you follow the instructions which] you learned from us about how you ought to walk so as to please and gratify God, as indeed you are doing, [and] that you do so even more and more abundantly [attaining yet greater perfection in living this life].  For you know what charges and precepts we gave you [[b]on the authority and by the inspiration of] the Lord Jesus.  3 For this is the will of God, that you should be consecrated (separated and set apart for pure and holy living): that you should abstain and shrink from all sexual vice,  1 Thess. 4:1-3  

Yours, in HIS great love and wonderful grace and mercy,  Ken<><
