REFLECTIVE REASONING!

Sunday’s Monday


The more time I spend learning to serve God with the demeanor He expects , without turning to my limited reasoning for understanding, the more acute my ability to hear God’s voice becomes. As well, He improves my ability to simply trust and obey with limited regard to the world's allusions or the opinions of it’s inhabitants. My view is to be that of the face of my Father and to passionately seek to please Him. So far, we have been busy just teaching me to be the best me that He created me to be! Ultimately His spiritual gifts directly engage my application of His fruits to produce those things which are necessary for my growth and proficiency in every area. Today I feel my assignment is operating in the lane of sharing time and the love of Jesus with others. I believe this because it gives me pleasure plus I see the spiritual battle within them. I feel my best when people finally grasp Galatians 2:20 (NLT), My old self has been crucified with Christ. It is no longer I who live, but Christ lives in me. So, I live in this earthly body by trusting in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me.


I try very hard to keep myself out of God’s way allowing His Trinity to work yet always be available should He choose to work through me. It is my desire to shower His goodness and love over all who are inside my small world of influence. I think the world hears too much of the goodness of Jesus and sees too little of His love actually at work. As is described in James 2:15-16 (NLT),15 Suppose you see a brother or sister who has no food or clothing, 16 and you say, “Good-bye and have a good day; stay warm and eat well”-but then you don’t give that person any food or clothing. What good does that do? I try to purposely make a conscious effort to remind myself of what Jesus is doing throughout the day which pumps my attitude of gratitude and share joy with those along my way. I never get enough of watching how His loving virtues change the countenance of those there shared with. Amazingly a kind word or welcoming gesture, placed in a God moment, can change someone’s whole day. Although it doesn’t change the circumstances, it changes one’s perception of hope and sheds a different light on things. Hope is, God’s power to change our reasoning process from self to Him!


There is no end to the reasons the world conjures up trying to explain how and why God works because it goes beyond man’s limited wisdom. I have read some of the stuff written by famous people and I’m not impressed because so many of the (so-called) smartest people in the world have debated answers for millennials and literally proved nothing. Need I say more? Back to the task; our understanding is better placed in Romans 12:10 (NLT), Love each other with genuine affection, and take delight in honoring each other. This works, tried, proven, and found to be true for those who believe. In other words, live Jesus, not merely wear the hats and shirts and speak King James, let your life so reflect His unconditional love that you stir people’s desire to seek Him. We should have reflective reasoning but it should be based on the truth found in our past. Many of us spend a good portion of our lives searching for that something we couldn’t understand, crying out to someone we didn’t know and pleading for things to be fixed and yet were back into the world as soon as a resolution came along. We all have stories of miracles that have taken place in our lives whether we believed in Jesus or not. Sadly, those memories are short lived as Satan stills them before they have much influence on our heart. We’re being drawn from every side and not knowing what we’re looking for we are accepting much less than God’s best. Satan thrives on confusion, mistrust, and loneliness to control people toward a noncommittal attitude. However, with very little effort we can pull up those memories of how God showed up and out in our life. Even when things didn’t work out like you thought they should, you find years later that things worked out for the best. Reflect on the past because God is in it! Don’t dwell or camp there because it will destroy you but visit from time to time and search out those hard times to see if you think God was present. He was all up in mine and I didn’t appreciate it then. But Boy It makes my day to see what he’s done and lights my fire to think of what He has in store for my future!


Abba; Thank you for giving me life everlasting and thank you for showing me how to start living it today. Thank you that heaven on earth is possible for those who truly believe. I beseech you to give the readers your reasoning to understand Acts 20:24 (NLT), But my life is worth nothing to me unless I use it for finishing the work assigned me by the Lord Jesus - the work of telling others the Good News about the wonderful grace of God. Amen and Amen


HAVE A BLESSED WEEK BY BEING A BLESSING TO OTHERS!
