WORKS, “WORTH CONSIDERING” 11/14/19 (Across my desk this morning.)
|“Work willingly at whatever you do, as though you were working for the Lord rather than for people…” Col.3:23
|Enjoy The Journey
When you love what you do, it doesn’t mean you don’t work hard or that you don’t have to deal with some frustrating days and people. That’s all a part of life. But ultimately, God can help you enjoy what you’re doing. When you’re in God’s will, there will be a joy on the inside. Deep down in your spirit, you will feel a sense of accomplishment. You’ll live the best life that God intended for you. If you’ll live a focused life with your priorities in order and clear goals for the future, there’s no limit to what God will do! He’ll take you places that you’ve never even dreamed of. You’ll experience the abundant life He has in store for you. Your deepest desire should be to follow God’s perfect will so that one day, you can look back and say, “This is why God put me here.
|A Prayer for Today
|“God, I am so thankful that because of Your presence in my life, the work I do each day can have real purpose and meaning. Help me to do my work with joy, as unto You, and use me to be a blessing to someone else who needs my encouragement and example today. In Jesus’ name – Amen.”
Making Christ Jesus our Lord and Savior is the only door into the Kingdom of God. God in HIS Infinite power will assist any one on planet earth to find that Love, Light, Truth and Salvation through Christ Jesus that is looking for it. God’s presence can be seen every where by the things that HE has created. So there is no excuse for not seeking HIM. So what we do indicates the direction that we are headed. If for light, we seek to find and walk in GOD’S TRUTH in light. If darkness then we are caught up in the worlds stuff lies and system of values with ourselves being the center. It is very interesting how we can so easily rationalize good to be bad and bad to be good if it is what we want it to be. Of course the Bible is a record of what the Prophets of old have found to be good. So if we really want to know what our Creator’s TRUTH is, The Bible is very handy in this country. Our Loving Creator has set it up so that only those who really want to know HIM will find HIM. In the future creations HE wants a family to live with HIM that is loving and obedient and there by choice. So those who refuse to be loving, humble and obedient will not be there. Love can only exist by having a free will. And our learning to control our free will for good in love is the only way that a future disorder in the universe can be averted. Look at what the wrong use of free will has done to our earth. So straight and narrow is the way that leads to eternal life and few there be that find it. Faith without WORK’S (or resulting action) is not true faith and is dead.
This also came in my mail today and felt to pass it along:
There was a time when Israel had no blacksmiths to make weapons and was without any armament to defend themselves. The enemy had succeeded to disarm Israel by removing their weapons, and those who forged them! He’s attempting the same tactic today. A blacksmith is someone who works with raw material and fire, and who knows how to form and shape liquid metal into powerful weapons. Anyone who works skillfully and accurately with the word of God is a spiritual “blacksmith”. The enemy, who is constantly attacking the word of God, the sword of the Spirit, also seeks to silence or remove the spiritual blacksmiths of this world. If he can get rid of them – the battle is over.
We need to pray for God’s blacksmiths because the enemy is after them. Together with the fire of the Holy Spirit they forge the raw material of His word into powerful weapons which shape and mold God’s people into His image and equip them for spiritual warfare and fruitfulness. But we are all called to be strong in the word, and to take it up as our primary weapon. Every spiritual blacksmith, himself started out as raw material which was shaped and formed by the fire of God to fight in this battle with Satan. So, as the battle rages, pray for the protection of God’s “blacksmiths”, even as you submit to His process of shaping you into one, yourself.
Yours, in His great love and wonderful grace and mercy, Ken<>< www.Trinity-Aloha.org
