“Therefore, get rid of all moral filth and the evil that is so prevalent and humbly accept the word planted in you, which can save you.” James 1:20 NIV
Read: James 1:19-27
Do you want GOD’S Blessings? Does it sometimes feel like everybody else is getting the things you want? Your best friend just got a new car. A guy at work is getting married to a beautiful woman. Your sister’s daughter won a scholastic scholarship to college. Is the last thing you received another utility bill?
You just don’t understand it. You get up early and go to work on time. You put in your 8 hours. You go to church on Sundays. You even throw a twenty in the offering plate…sometimes.
GOD’S blessings come to those who are blessed. Do you feel like you are blessed? If not, maybe that’s the problem.
Are you living a blessed life? From sunup to sundown are you focused on GOD and all HE has for you or are you doing life the way you want to live? Your way or GOD’S way will be the difference in receiving GOD’S blessings.
GOD will not reward you for living a life of sin…those so called little sins are not little at all. HE will forgive you. HE will guide you. But, HE will not bless your actions. If you want to be blessed, then live a blessed life. Get rid of all those things you know GOD does not approve. Prove to GOD you are worthy of HIS blessings.
Today’s prayer: “LORD GOD, Thank you for the blessings you have given me. Thank you for guiding me to live a better life. Help me to live in the shadows of YOUR wings and feel all the blessings I have been missing. Amen.”
