Look Close

Things Don't Look So Good...Wait Look Closer!

Dont be discouraged by your failing physical body.  It is inevitable because from the dust we were formed and to the dust we must return.  The process is sometimes painful to watch and/or endure.  However, the inner man having been transformed by the power of Christ is being renewed daily instead of decaying.

2 Corinthians 4:16 AMP
Therefore we do not become discouraged (utterly spiritless, exhausted, and wearied out through fear). Though our outer man is [progressively] decaying and wasting away, yet our inner self is being [progressively] renewed day after day.

Self Sufficient

Self Sufficient

How easy it is to become self sufficient in our daily  routines.  We come and go doing our stuff becoming so comfortable that we disengage God from what we would consider the mundane things of life.  Then little by little our self sufficiency grows into all areas of our life.  Rethink your routines, reconsider involving the Lord in ever move you make.  The Apostle Paul recognized his insufficiency and the all sufficient power of Christ in him.

2 Corinthians 3:5 AMP

Not that we are fit (qualified and sufficient in ability) of ourselves to form personal judgments or to claim or count anything as coming from us, but our power and ability and sufficiency are from God.

12 years ago today tragedy came to our shores.  Most Americans have forgotten, and we will go about our day as usual (shame on us). Those lives and families that were forever changed by that day, THEY WILL NEVER FORGET.  There was an event of even greater magnitude over 2000 years ago when Jesus of Nazareth was tried, convicted, beaten beyond recognition and hung on a cross.  Most people have forgotten and some could care less.  For those whose lives have been radically transformed by the sustitutionary, atoning, justifying all sufficient work of Christ on the Cross...WE WILL NEVER FORGET!

No doubt we will all be diligent about many things today.  Getting to work, feeding the animals, making our doctors appointment, fixing dinner for the family and the list goes on.  How diligent are we when it comes to the things of God.

Psalm 119:4 AMP
You have commanded us to keep Your precepts, that we should observe them diligently.
