Lord’s Day Scriptures: God Supplies Our Needs

GodSupplies

Our God supplies our needs. He does. It may not always feel like it, especially when we mix or confuse wants with true needs, but He ALWAYS provides the things we really need. And what do we need most of all? To choose to follow Him. To choose to follow Christ. Our one, biggest, most important need is to follow Christ, to repent of our sins and obey and serve our Lord. That’s it. I may think I need this or that even just the basic needs, I may think I can’t endure anymore suffering, but the truth is that all I need is HIM!! I’m going to try to remember that this week!

There are riches and glory in Christ Jesus that we can’t conceive of. He’s the BEST, and the best for me…and for you!

Happy Lord’s Day!

Lord’s Day Scriptures: Working For The Lord

WorkForLordNotPeopleGraphic

“Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord, rather than people.”  Colossians 3:23

This such a good reminder! It’s so easy to forget why we’re doing what we’re doing, and to seek glory from people. If we’re seeking glory from people, our actions will be actions and activities that please people. But if we’re seeking glory from our Lord, our actions and activities will be those that please Him.

It’s so much easier and more fun to follow other people, friends, family, the world. So much less risk in that. And so much superficial glory. But is superficial glory what we truly desire? God offers us His true glory, but we must seek after Him, His desires and His plan. We have to be willing to take the risks…like seeking out only Godly activities, even if our friends and family think we’re too strict, or ridiculous. It’s really God we’re seeking to please, not them. It’s REALLY hard to be the one who’s different.

But it also means  sharing the Truth of who Christ is, why He came and why we want them to surrender their lives to Him as well. Because, if we truly love our Lord, and love people, we will talk to them, no matter the glory, but because we don’t want them to perish.

I want to see my friends, family and anyone else with me and my Lord in heaven, on the New Earth for eternity…so I’ll seek to please God, and try not to care about pleasing people.

To God be the glory, forever and ever!!!

So Much At Home

Lord’s Day Scripture: The God of All Comfort

TheGodOfAllComfort

 

Reading God’s words brings me such comfort…and joy…and hope. He promises so many times that He will always be here…for little ole me. That He loves me. And knows what is best for me. And not only knows, but gives me the best things for me. And that one day all of this suffering will end…AND I’ll be with Him FOREVER. Now THAT’S a promise!!   :>

 

So…I try to hold on. Even though it’s often a struggle. And I’d rather escape all of the trials and daily pain…physical and emotional. But, for now, I still have a job to do. To show others who Christ is, and that I need Him, but so do you. We all need Him. So, I’ll try to be patient And wait. Because the right time will come. And then I’ll rejoice, FOREVER.

 

So in the meantime Lord, thanks for all of that comfort You’re offering. Because I really need it!!

 

Have a great week!
