Good morning all-
What does the soul want? The world would say it wants money, power and glory. God would say it yearns for Him. The soul of man can not be bought with money or power and it will never have true glory because its glory resides in the Lord. It is our beacon at death.
You might be able to buy a man in today's world. You might even be able to deceive and destroy one. It's possible that depression and anxiety can lure you into destruction but if you have God, you have something to hold onto.
Like our heart the soul is vital to our living. When the heart stops the soul leaves on a journey to unknown places. In the Bible there are only two destinations, heaven or hell? If you are chosen and have been sanctified, you will go to heaven. However, if you are of consenting age and have heard the gospel and haven't said yes, you may want to reconsider.
Our days our numbered, whether our lives end by an accident or from natural causes. God knows each day we will remain. It's what we do with the time we're given that is so important. If your soul yearns for Christ ask Him what His purpose is for you. Look at the wonderful talents He has given to you and use them. You are vital to His cause, which is reaching out to the nations and telling them the good news.
Many have died for their beliefs. Look around at the world, it wasn't so long ago that chinese students were being killed in the streets, or now, in Syria they have civil war. Iran and Afghanistan are based upon social and belief based wars, not to mention the nuclear weapons being developed in North Korea and Iran. Our world is becoming a greedy, power grabbing place. We used to stand for people and today we stand for power.
In the Presidential debate, I heard "I" more than I cared too. No matter what candidate you like there is no "I" in President. If whatever President we choose does not choose the people and he can't get bipartisanship then we really have nothing. People have to come together and we have to fight for what's right. We need to be a country led by God, built by God and protected by God. I don't care how many missiles we have, if God isn't for us, who is?
There is only one "I" that has ever been important to a Christian's soul and that should be the Holy Trinity. Our Father, His Son and the Holy Spirit should be recognized as I. No one else. Everything else works on teamwork, prayer and workers that believe. I don't care if you play sports or have a team at work, if one of the players is singing, "I", the team will fail. That's why I believe God is calling women to unite all over the world. We must fight against the "I" and put Christ at the forefront of our families. We must pray for our countries and the men and women that live in them. We have generations coming up that are confused and rarely have an opinion of their own. We must teach them what God says and be prepared to answer their questions. And if we don't have the answer seek someone that does.
We need to go and spread the word to our friends and family first and then see where God leads from there. Our hearts and souls only have so much time. We must seize the day and if God puts something on your heart, do it. Don't wait, time is of the essence.
Ezekiel 18:4 NKJV:
"Behold, all souls are Mine; The soul of the father as well as the soul of the son is Mine;
Luke 1:46 NKJV:
And Mary said, "My soul magnifies the Lord.
Psalm 86: 4 NKJV:
Rejoice the soul of Your servant, for to You, O Lord, I lift up my soul.
My prayer today:
O, Lord, thank You for the word. Every time I look into it, I see You. My soul yearns to be closer to You, to find You in everything and at the same time, I wish to be still in Your presence. I know that time is short. It could be another 1000 years but that's a blink of an eye to You. You have been waiting and watching Your people, pulling them together, uniting them and one day like a thief within the night You will come. I'm excited and in wonder of what You will do with my life and the women You place in my path. I pray that their souls will yearn for You and at the end of everyday they will know You! There is no "I" in team, so I come before the Great I Am and ask You to wash me of my sins and to lift me up to minister to Your people. You are glorious Lord and with each step I know how wonderful You truly are. I don't have all the answers, only You do. So today, I will rest and watch You work. Bring women to me and to those You have counted as Your chosen. Help us to bring up the next generation so that they will yearn for You too. We thank You for Your presence in our lives and as we come before You we ask that You would change our nations. We are asking for a revival back to the only "I" that counts, YOU! In Jesus name, AMEN
