Ever heard “You get what you pay for”? That is a reality and it is true for your spiritual life too.
“Jesus, today I would like the spiritual strength of a person who doesn’t talk to you or review your Words for me but really dwells on the attitudes and opinions of those who don’t believe you exist. What kind of Christian walk can I have at that cost?”
Your investments in your spiritual life and walk pay off. Your walk with Jesus, strong or weak, is a direct result of your time and effort. Just like your physical health reflects the time and effort you put in exercising and eating right.
You will never leave where you are until you decide where you would rather be. ~Kurt Parker
Well, we all want the best life we can have. No one argues that. But how we believe we get it is where we differ. Often we think we know what our ‘best life’ is and we believe we can make it happen ourselves.
Why do we think that? We didn’t make us or even one thing in this world. So why would we think we know how to attain the best life here?
The Maker does. The Maker made us. The Maker made everything. The Maker – makes it happen.
Maybe we should get to know Him better.
Read. Pray. Fast. All three, repeated in the Word, are the staples of a believer’s life who wants to know the Maker’s plan. Read the only true Words we have to stand on in this life; pray by talking to Him as you would a Father or friend; Fast: give up elements of this world you hold too close. Show Him you are serious about getting on the fast track to your best life. Invite the Maker to take you “as is” and make you into more than you could ever be on your own.
If it doesn’t mean something to you, it won’t mean anything to God.
Come join “You in the Making” series launching next week with Harborside Christian Church as we kick off fasting and groups and a commitment to receive His Word this year.
