|Doing Business with God|
In trying to be honest I say things as I see them and I admit my vision is blurred at times.
It could be that the “Mote in the eye” affects more than how I view my brother. Properly viewing of every situation requires unbiased introspection and an unmasking of hidden desires so you may know who you are.
Ask yourself; “Have I settled for a half a loaf”? It is easy to say half a loaf is better than none and be satisfied but when it comes to doing business with GOD wholeness is required.
The lack of being fully open with GOD will cause one to conclude “Doing business with GOD is an exercise in futility.”
I would hope I’m alone in having seen my prayers left laying on the altar and withering there instead of rising to the throne of grace where mercy is dispensed.
This should be a cause for concern for all who have experienced this. There isn’t someone who comes on the line and says; “Sorrow you have been disconnected” you have to discern this yourself.
Psalm 66:18 If I had cherished (delight in) iniquity in my heart, the Lord would not have listened. The last thing I need is my Heavenly Father turning a deaf ear to me in the time of need.
Psalm 119:9-16How can a young man keep his way pure? By keeping it according to Your word. With all my heart I have sought You; Do not let me wander from Your commandments. Your word I have treasured in my heart, That I may not sin against You. Blessed are You, O LORD ; Teach me Your statutes. With my lips I have told of all the ordinances of Your mouth. I have rejoiced in the way of Your testimonies, As much as in all riches. I will meditate on Your precepts And regard Your ways. I shall delight in Your statutes ; I shall not forget Your word.
Now this sounds real good and it applies to the old as well as the young. To male as well as female. This is to be the lifestyle of a Christian a walk it not just a talk it issue.
The first three verses of the song; Nothing between my soul and my savior
“Nothing between my soul and the Savior,
Naught of this world's delusive dreams;
I have renounced all sinful pleasure;
Jesus is mine, there's nothing between”.
Nothing between my soul and the Savior,
So that His blessed face may be seen;
Nothing preventing the least of His favor,
Keep the way clear! Let nothing between.
Nothing between, like worldly pleasure;
Habits of life, though harmless they seem,
Must not my heart from Him e'er sever;
He is my all, there's nothing between.
I’m glad you’ve stayed with me this far and the design of this exhortation is to reinforce our belief that; “The promises of GOD are yea and amen, not no and never mind.
Should we seem to be falling short of the glory of GOD perhaps a checkup is in order.
