In trying to move forward in my relationship with God, I realize that I need to read His Word and listen to what He has to say to me. My schedule has been kind’ve packed this week, studying, family time, time with my girlfriend. The unexpected obstacles didn’t make things any better. But my focus has been more towards doing what I
THOUGHT I had to do - Study, Homework, things around the house, etc. But, God showed me this morning that all of that stuff is WORTHLESS, if He is not in it.
"Why good is it for a man to gain the whole world, and yet lose your soul?"-Luke 9:25
That is pretty deep, as far as serving money, trying to gain riches. But without putting the love of God in every aspect of my life to ensure that I am doing His will, I waste my life. Ecclesiastes 1 & 2 show that we can do everything that we want or need to do, but without God as the Head of it ALL, it is pointless. To find what He wants us to do, and how to give Him glory, we have to strengthen His Spirit inside of us with His Word.
"If I have the gift of prophecy and can fathom all mysteries and all knowledge, and if I have a faith that can move mountains, but have not love, I am nothing."-1 Corinthians 13:2
"Whoever does not love does not know God, because God is love."- 1 John 4:8
