Good morning everyone,
When we think about our physical life, we often may wonder just how long the Lord is going to keep us here? Some peoples lives are snuffed out fairly early and some are here for upwards of a 100 years or so! Either way, it is a blip on the radar screen in relationship to eternity. But your spiritual life can be guaranteed right now even though there are no guarantees with your physical life. Psalm 121:7-8 says, "The Lord will keep you from all harm-he will watch over your life; the Lord will watch over your coming and going both now and forevermore." Even though He is concerned about eternity and where you will spend it, He is also concerned with your physical life. He wants to know you intimately and He wants that relationship to begin before you leave this place. If you begin right now to give Him your life, how much better can your life be served? This, ladies and gentlemen, is why you were created. We all have a human sense of living this life on our own terms unless we humble ourselves and know that we were created for a much bigger cause! We all have certain gifts that we can do with exceptional qualities! Those qualities were provided by the One who created you. Isn't it time to give Him the attention that He needs so that He can show you how to use those qualities like He intended. He thought enough about you to create you and He has the 'master' plan that He wants to show you if you will let Him! When you see people do things exceptionally well, does their life reflect Who made it possible or do they miss the point and selfishly take the credit? Remember that He wants to shine through you! The least we can do is give credit where much credit is due!
Your brother in Christ,
