God is seeking and stretching forth His hand of blessings to those who are sincere about Him (those who are 100% committed to Him – who are steadfast in their faith).
“Therefore, my beloved brethren, be ye steadfast, unmovable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, forasmuch, as ye know that your labour is not in vain in the Lord.” (I Corinthians 15:58)
Those who are established and firmly settled, God will:
1. Deliver them from all their troubles;
2. Bless them beyond measure to be a blessing to others;
3. Answer their prayers; and
4. Take them to higher spiritual heights through greater wisdom and revelation.
God is calling you to enter into His kingdom today.
Be sure to answer the call,
if you don’t tomorrow you will fall.
Seek God early while He may be found,
and the benefits of love, joy, and peace will abound.
So many people sit in churches and hear the message through God’s called and appointed messengers, but do not apply the principles and corrective measures in their lives.
“And you treated as nothing all my counsel and would accept none of my reproof, I also will laugh at your calamity; I will mock when the thing comes that shall cause you terror and panic—When your panic comes as a storm and desolation and your calamity comes on as a whirlwind, when distress and anguish come upon you. Then will they call upon me (Wisdom) but I will not answer; they will seek me early and diligently but they will not find me.” (Proverbs 1:24-28)
Some people go to church for the wrong motive – for example, to find a husband or wife with no interest and no respect for the Word of God. They do not have a “hearing ear”.
“Because they hated knowledge and did not choose the reverent and worshipful fear of the Lord, would accept none of my counsel, and despised all my reproof. Therefore, shall they eat of the fruit of their own way and be satiated with their own devices. For the backsliding of the simple shall slay them, and the careless ease of (self-confident) fools shall destroy them. But whoso hearkens to me (Wisdom) shall dwell securely and in confident trust and shall be quiet, without fear or dread of evil.” (Proverbs 1:29-33)
The consequence of a non-hearing ear is that you will enter into a backslidden position and remain there until you decide to hearken to Wisdom. Wisdom will protect you and guide you into a life of abundant love, joy, and peace.
WISDOM FORMULA — Knowing the Word of God + Understanding the Word of God + Applying the Word of God = Wisdom
Listen to God and heed His Word. Reverently honour and Worship Him, for this will save your life from eternal destruction, and keep you on the straight and narrow road that leads to an abundant life.
In God’s pavilion He meets your every need.
If you will run to Him and make Him your Rock of Refuge with speed.
He knows your very heart and mind.
He is glorified when you open it and are kind.
Trust in Him with all your heart and He won’t lead you astray.
He will lead and guide you along the righteous way.
He is always there,
So don’t despair.
Just give Jesus your all, and know that you are in the Best of care.
