What defines you?

Proverbs 23: 7 NIV “for he is the kind of man who is always thinking about the cost.  “Eat and drink,” he says to you, but his heart is not with you.”

Go and stand before a mirror and look at your countenance, what do you see?  When I go to the mirror I see an elderly lady looking back at me.  I see her every morning when she combs her hair and brushes her teeth, so it must be me.  Then, of course, I am a wife, a mother, and stepmother and a grandmother and last but not least a daughter.

Come to think of it, I have many different roles to play in my life.  But have you visited with someone and when in their company you feel a little off.  You just cannot put your finger on it.  They are kind, friendly and look all too good but there is something off about the whole scenario?

We sometimes act just like this person in Proverbs, we are supposed to be children of the Most High God but we treat people with contempt and disregard them.  Why?  I believe when you get to a certain level in your life and you feel that you have made it, you become selfish and don’t really want to share your wealth with others.  But because of etiquette and protocol you need to act in a certain way, you know it because it is expected of you.

Oh my goodness, Lord help us.

Prayer

Lord God, in humble adoration we come before You today, Lord.  Just as we are, daughters of the Most High God, a royal priesthood.  Bought with the blood of Jesus Christ.  Remind us that we Lord, need You in our lives.  That whatever we have is because You gave it to us.  Lord bless each person reading these words today.  In the name of Jesus Christ Amen

#Mustard #Seed #Faith

Matthew 17: 20 NIV “He replied, “Because you have so little faith, I tell you the truth, if you have faith as small as a mustard seed, you can say to this mountain, “move from here to there” and it will move.  Nothing will be impossible for you.”

Have you actually seen how small a mustard seed is?  Seriously, it is rather small but that same seed yields the most beautiful huge tree.  I have a question I want to ask you, please think about it seriously and see if you agree with me.  If you and I have faith as small as a mustard seed, why then aren’t all our prayers heard?

Do you think it is because our faith does not align with that of God and that we don’t really believe God is able to do what He says He can do? Or are we trying to make things happen on our own ability, you know praying God do this and then going through a lot of trouble to see what we can do in the meantime?

Where is our confidence?  In ourselves and our ability or that of God and His ability?  I wonder whether I am really and truly surrendered to the Lord God in such a way that He is able to take over and do what needs to be done.  Have I truly surrender every thought and deed into the Lords Hands?

Prayer

Heavenly Father, Luke Chapter One verse thirty-seven says “For nothing is impossible with God.” Lord as a Christian I come into Your presence today, I pray Lord for the needy and I pray for the sick.  I also pray for each and every one of us seeking You.  Lord in our unbelieve we draw near to You.  My prayer today is that I truly will draw near to You and that I will actually have faith as small as a mustard seed and I ask that You Holy Spirit will ignite the growing power in my soul and heart and mind.  This I pray in the Holy Name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth.  Amen
