We can all try to be doing things for God that we think He likes. However, He has certain things in mind - as priority for each one of us individually each day - that He would like us to do, change, or believe.  The most powerful and profound thing we could today on earth - is to find-out what these things are - and do them, TODAY.  Then we find out God's will TOMORROW - and do it. We put His interests first and as priority.  He likes this and appreciates this over anything we might mistakenly prioritize. 

 

Jesus said, "My food is to do the will of My Father, and accomplish His work." 

 

The Bible also says, "To obey is better than sacrifice."

 

Jesus said, "Why do you call me Lord, Lord - and not do what I command?"

DO WE EACH UNDERSTAND THAT GOD IS REAL AND WE CAN MAKE CONNECTION WITH HIM. . . "FIND HIM" . . . AND TALK TO HIM? . . . What? . . . WHAT?

God is trying to get them to Seek Him, Know Him, Love Him, and Serve Him.

 

Are we on His side, truly trying to do the same thing?

 

Litmus Test:  Are you ready to invite them over for dinner?  Or how about inviting them to your house of worship or church?

 

 

It is easy to look good to everyone outside the home and hide who we really are - and how we truly treat people . . . Who we are at home is who we really are.
 

How we treat others in the home - is how we really would treat others outside the home.
 

May we always watch our lives the most - while at home and when we are home...a good test and reflection of our true character. 

When we are in perplexities and uncertainties about the way we should go or the way we should think about something:

      HE IS THEE WAY.

When we are wanting to find and know the Truth about anything:

      HE IS THEE TRUTH.

When we are wanting true purpose, true deep joy, true deep contentment, true deep peace - each and every day:

     HE is THEE LIFE.

"Declaring War" to always be found in this state - no matter what happens - i.e., no matter what happens, I am going to CHOOSE to be at peace and CHOOSE to be content in all circumstances . . . in a bad car wreck, come down with a bad sickness or injury or disease, financial ruin, death of a loved one, job loss, everybody hates me, etc.  Why?  Because all the magnificent eternal benefits we possess grossly outweigh this event - from heaven's perspective.

Life stresses manifest who we are - what our true level of character is.

 

We need to keep embracing these times of stress - remembering how this pain - and how I act while in this pain - helps manifests my true character (who I really am) . . . and what I am really made of.

 

God allows these times of stress - often ordaining / arranging these times of stress - to "see what we got."

 

He wants us also to understand and truly perceive - "what we got". . . our true character.

We need to be perceiving our level of spiritual strength/spiritual weakness/character . . . as hard as it can be to face, sometimes. . . But! "Apart from Him, we can do nothing," . . . But/And, "We can do all things through Him"!

He wants us to come boldly and with confidence before Him as He sits on His throne -  FOR HELP IN TIME OF NEED:

 

 

Not only to just come before Him - CLING TO HIM.  Hug Him - so to speak - along with staying close to Him all the time, all day long, every day:

 

If God commands us to not only come to Him - but "hug" Him closely, so to speak - as a general lifestyle - then we should throw-off any shame or feelings of unworthiness - and hug Him in the spirit-realm whenever we think of it - and keep conversing to Him and with Him . . .  This command is very comforting, affirming how much God loves us and wants us to "live" in His embrace.  

 

How can we entertain any feelings or attacks that God does not like us when He's trying to have us be constantly, closely embracing Him !!

 

 

We DO need to be doing all 6 of these, and hold the confession and testimony

that we are doing them every day:

 

 

Just like Jesus did, we need to be telling the devil what we are doing - what we are "all about " . . . What our life is "all about" . . . We are all about loving the Lord, and serving Him only . . .  

 

 

 

A Great Evangelistic and (true) Greeting Response:

 

When someone asks us "So, what have you been up to?"

 

or

 

"What's going on with you?

 

Response:  "I just get-up and Love God and Serve Him every day" . . . 

 

This is a profound and eternal thing to be doing every day, and to being able to confess each day. Most Christians do not seem to be able to make this daily confession . . .
