Thoughts on God’s involvement in our lives


I realised it this morning, that if you are close to God you’ll know Him, hear Him, want to be like Him, want to do His will etc. So we need to be Holy as He is holy in order to have open channels for faith to do & live according to what pleases Him and will blesses us in return…

I found only two references to Faith in the Old Testament:

…For they are a perverse generation, Children in whom is no faith.
(Deuteronomy 32:20)

“Behold the proud, His soul is not upright in him; But the just shall live by his faith.
(Habakkuk 2:4)

I see faith linked to Godly living:

… most holy faith, …
(Jude 1:20)

I love it, so clear & simple..!

Could it be that Jesus’ words in these scriptures not just include the Bible but also His word to us in eg. prophecy, dreams , HOLY SPIRIT And also the way He talks to us every day – That we should not be ashamed of His relevancy in our lives now!?

“He is NO fool who gives up what he cannot keep to gain what he cannot loose”
Elliot

Then Jesus told his disciples, “If anyone would come after me, let him deny himself and take up his cross and follow me. For whoever would save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life for my sake will find it. For what will it profit a man if he gains the whole world and forfeits his soul? Or what shall a man give in return for his soul?
(Matthew 16:24-26)

And calling the crowd to him with his disciples, he said to them, “If anyone would come after me, let him deny himself and take up his cross and follow me. For whoever would save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life for my sake and the gospel’s will save it. For what does it profit a man to gain the whole world and forfeit his soul? For what can a man give in return for his soul? For whoever is ashamed of me and of my words in this adulterous and sinful generation, of him will the Son of Man also be ashamed when he comes in the glory of his Father with the holy angels.”
(Mark 8:34-38)

And he said to all, “If anyone would come after me, let him deny himself and take up his cross daily and follow me. For whoever would save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life for my sake will save it. For what does it profit a man if he gains the whole world and loses or forfeits himself? For whoever is ashamed of me and of my words, of him will the Son of Man be ashamed when he comes in his glory and the glory of the Father and of the holy angels.
(Luke 9:23-26)

That we should live, acknowledge and declare with boldness His involvement in our lives especially when others wants to negate this fact with negativity and the way they want us to live. It should be then that we must declare our dependency and devotion to HIM!
Yes! It is for absolutely all of it.

Our first call is to be witnesses, close observers reporting their experiences and observations…
We need to share our experiences of And with HIM Stemming from our knowledge of HIM!!!
