This morning I woke up with the word of God on my heart. My flesh was wanting to boast and lead me into another direction, but the Holy Spirit stirred me up quickly. I was moved to pray for my beautiful wife and children before they rise up and face the day. My faith prompted me to stand with my wife and kids early, and for this day to be used to honor my God, my Savior Jesus.
When I set my heart to honor God, and break through past my fleeting smallness, God becomes greater and greater in each living circumstance. As you can see from the pic to the right, I am serious about this thing. LOL
I need God to help ENABLE (give the authority or means to do a thing) me to LIVE my LIFE WORTHY (deserving effort, attention or respect) of HIS CALL. As for me and my family, we will serve the Lord!
2 Thessalonians 1:11 (NLT) So we keep on praying for you, asking our God to enable you to live a life worthy of his call. May he give you the power to accomplish all the good things your faith prompts you to do. 12 Then the name of our Lord Jesus will be honored because of the way you live, and you will be honored along with him. This is all made possible because of the grace of our God and Lord, Jesus Christ.
God is the one who opens up doors in our life to walk through, but we need to walk through them! Here were the things that jumped out to me as i read this passage.
• power to accomplish
• All the good things
• Your faith prompts you
• Jesus is honored because how you live
• You will also be honored
• All made possible because of His grace
Early church believers in Thessalonica experienced great persecution. Their encouragement was His soon return (2 Thess . 1:7-8) and the promise that those who are causing such persecution have their day of judgement. There is a strong judgement on those who do not know God and to those who know about Him but willingly choose to close their ears to His call. This judgement comes from God, and I believe this is so because of the countless opportunities He gives everyone daily to acknowledge and live for Him. Thats only my opinion.
can you hear Him calling you now, do you feel the prompting of Jesus upon your life now, do not delay, respond now.
God help me today, to answer Your call upon my life. With every minute, every phone call, every email, every social media blast and every opportunity. May Your name be honored and glorified, in Jesus name amen.
God bless you and your family ,
