1 Corinthians 2:9 - "But as it is written, Eye has not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered into the heart of man, the things which God has prepared for them that love him."
It has never entered our mind what God has prepared for us while on this earth. His intent is grand.
Instead of confining ourselves by our imagination and experience, let's press on to a renewed hunger for things yet to be seen.
As we pursue the Extravagant One with reckless abandon, we will discover that our greatest problem is the resistance that comes from between our ears.
But faith is superior. And it's time for us to make Him unconcerned about whether or not He'll find faith on the earth.
Luke 18:8 - "Nevertheless when the Son of man cometh, shall he find faith on the earth?"
Colossians 3:16 - "Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly."
YOUR FIRST STEP IN DRAWING CLOSER TO GOD IS TO REALIZE THAT YOU KNOW GOD FIRST IN HIS WORD. TIME SPENT MEDITATING IN THE NEW TESTAMENT IS TIME SPENT WITH JESUS.
MOST PEOPLE TRY TO KNOW HIM THROUGH THEIR FEELINGS AND THAT JUST WON'T WORK.
LETTING THE WORD DOMINATE YOUR THINKING IS TO ALLOW THE HOLY SPIRIT TO HAVE CONTROL OVER YOUR MIND. AS YOU DO THAT, YOUR FEELINGS WILL EVENTUALLY FALL IN LINE.
Hebrews 3:13 - "But exhort one another daily, while it is called Today; lest any of you be hardened through the deceitfulness of sin."
I STIR UP MY FAITH AND EXPERIENCE MORE DEEPLY THE PRESENCE OF THE LORD IN MY LIFE THROUGH MY EXHORTATION AND ENCOURAGEMENT OF OTHER BELIEVERS.
I INTEND TO FIND A WAY TO ENCOURAGE SOMEONE WHO NEEDS STRENGTH AND UNDERSTANDING TODAY!
