Who Are You Building For?

When you dedicate yourself – your life – to God, when you submit to the guidance of the Holy Spirit and lean on the teachings of Jesus Christ everything you do is imbued with His essence. Everything. You don’t have to draw attention to yourself, however people will be drawn to you – not because of who you are but because of whose you are

Prejudice Against Emotion

While the pulpit and the church people are decrying emotion and cultivating a frigid intellectual life, the theater is playing on the emotional life of the people, and they have the crowds and the money to support them.

In this we are confronted by a fact we cannot down – it stares us in the face and will not go at our bidding, viz.: God gave man an emotional nature, and for wise and holy purposes. If we seek to destroy that nature, then we destroy the man as God made him, and we can but expect that he will dedicate his life to other ends than that for which he was created.

A Personal Relationship with God is Paramount

I have come to an uncomfortable realization that community – though it is an instruction and goal for God’s people to assemble themselves – community does very little good for the spiritually hungry. If you are seeking God’s word, His will, His guidance, an understanding of who He is and who you are – go straight to His Word. If you’re depending on other people to tell you about God, you’ve already missed Him.

A Lesson in 1 Kings 13 – Man of God from Judah Meets the Old Prophet from Bethel

Know this: It is not for anyone else to believe God’s message to you. Don’t expect someone else, even fellow travelers/believers, to have your best interests at heart. If you know what has been spoken into you and shown to you through God’s Spirit, it’s your responsibility to ACT on it. With each test of faith and obedience, God will increase your understanding and deepen your relationship with Him immeasurably.

LaShawnda – Thank you so much for sharing this. I’m sitting here in tears now reading this because I didn’t know how to express how I was feeling. Reading this has touched me very deeply. Yep – I too need love and shouldn’t be ashamed to admit it. It is definitely time for me to also “fold up my petals” in a few places. BUT GOD is good and is clearly asking me to pay attention to some of the wonderful new, nurturing and giving people he has placed in my life. God Bless you for sharing of yourself and your experiences so openly. I continue to be blessed by your writing. Peace & Blessings your way – ~jax.
