THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN LOVING GOD AND SERVING MAN

IMG_3169Matthew 6:24 New International Version (NIV)

24 “No one can serve two masters. Either you will hate the one and love the other, or you will be devoted to the one and despise the other. You cannot serve both God and money.”

Having money and the love of money are not the same things. The love of money is an issue of the heart. Money is a tool for exchange. It is used to grow business, to move things, to change things, to grow relationships through investing. We use things….we love people. We don’t love things.  We value life and people. If at any time you move from loving people to seeing them as only tools–assets or liabilities–there is an issue with the heart. Money can be used to build homes for the needy, to send the Gospel across the nations, and to assist in times of crisis. 

Once a person begins to serve money, they will do anything to get more of it. It can cause a person to become more self-sufficient than God-conscious. It can cause a person to betray their own family and associates–just like Judas. Be on guard about your need of Jesus as LORD and Savior. The Bible says, “Why do you call me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ but you don’t do what I say” (Luke 6:46). If we love God, we will obey His Word.

YOU ARE GOD’S PRICELESS TREASURE….YOU CAN OVERCOME DESPAIR, FEAR, & DISCOURAGEMENT

There are seasons in life, and changes in life that are inevitable. Learn to move forward in faith through everything–looking to Jesus. If you are struggling with being in a desert situation or wilderness, fear of the future, sorrow over the past, abandonment from a spouse or parent, a broken heart, or struggling with life changes due to health issues, may God encourage you through His Word and through people who love you. 

There are times in life when everyone struggles with discouragement and despair. David is a great example of a man who struggled with real life emotions that come to all. It is comforting to know that he lived a long time ago and wrote down his emotions for us today in the Psalms. 

Take time to record your thoughts and prayers, and the answers from God in a journal. It will help you to remember the goodness and faithfulness of God. 

We have all walked through something that was painful. Take time to read my first book GOD’S PRICELESS TREASURE (How To Overcome Challenges, Be Transformed and Know Your Purpose)…published by Charisma/Creation House Press in 2011. It’s available on Amazon, Barnes & Noble, www.starministriesinc.com and other distributors. 

I pray God encourages you and fills your heart with hope and love—fully knowing He has a plan and purpose for your life—and it is good.

God bless you!

Deborah

HAPPY NEW YEAR 2018

Written by Deborah. Posted in #GodAlwaysWins, #TellTheWorld, #TellTheWorldAboutJesus, A LEAP OF FAITH (25 Days At The Mercy Seat), Forgiveness, God, God's Love, God's Priceless Treasure, JESUS IS ALIVE, Listening With the Heart, Love, Obedience, PAIN TO PURPOSE, Prayer, Purpose, Radical obedience, Seek God, STEP INTO PURPOSE, The Midnight Hour (Will America Turn Back To God?), Trust God, Uncategorized

What is significant about the New Year? 2018 in the Hebrew is Ayin Chet, meaning “The Year of the Doorway.” The word doorway is defined as “the entrance or access into a room” and also “a threshold or point of transition.” And God is overthrowing the enemy in your life. He is making the enemy your footstool. He is opening blind eyes, and making Himself known to those who will hear and see. 

CJB Proverbs 15:3 The eyes of ADONAI are everywhere, watching the evil and the good.

CJB 2 Chronicles 16:9 For the eyes of the ANONAI move here and there throughout the whole earth, to show himself strong on behalf of those who are wholehearted toward him. 

The LORD’s eyes are looking over all the nations for perfect and complete judgment for a new beginning. Look at Genesis 19:29: “But when Elohim destroyed the cities of the plain, he remembered Abraham and sent Lot out, away from the destruction, when he OVERTHREW the cities in which Lot lived.”  It is not time to play church. It’s time to follow the Lord God wholeheartedly. We must stand for what God stands for…we must stand with Israel if we want to be blessed as a nation. 

If you are half-heartedly following the Lord, choose to wholly follow Him now. Choose to answer Jesus standing at the door of your heart knocking to enter. Choose to fully cross-over and follow Christ—wholeheartedly. 

If you are wholly following the Lord and wonder why you had so much warfare in 2017, it is because you are a believer in Christ and are a threat to the enemy and taking territory away from him. Jesus was hated by the world as well. 

Regardless of mankind’s opinion, whether you are exalted or abased, be determined in your heart and mind to wholly follow the Lord God—carry the Cross of Christ throughout conflict. Be determined to live with a forgiving heart. 

None of us have arrived to perfection, but if we will live to bring pleasure to Jesus Christ, if we each have this attitude, we will put to death our reactions to criticisms. Choose to not be offended. Desperately seek to have Christ’s nature found in you and to be changed into His image. 

Choose to live in the fear of the Lord, which is the beginning of wisdom—and the source of every blessing imaginable. To disobey God is foolishness, expensive and disappointing. 

The fear of the Lord prolongs life. (Proverbs 10:27). Choose to have a spirit like Caleb and Joshua found in God’s Word. Be a God-pleaser, not a man-pleaser. Decide today to trust and surrender your life to God. 

Do you want the best for your children and family? Surrender your life to God and live before your children a godly life. If you don’t, you can’t expect your kids to do so. Choose to yield yourself to a Holy God—surrender to Jesus Christ and His ways.

We all mess up—God forgives us. He knows us perfectly. The wisest decision you will ever make is to fear the Living God and to obey Him at the slightest whisper at the door of your heart. 

God has a new doorway for you to enter—a new threshold for you to walk over with Him. He wants you to put Him first in your life. He wants you to live with passion and purpose. He wants you to talk to Him when you wake up, when you get in your automobile, when you are working among people who don’t know Him, when you go to bed at night. He wants you to tell other people about Him, not only by what you say, but by how you treat them and how they see you either respond or react to life. 

Choose this day to wholly follow the Lord, to fully trust Him when everything around you looks like it is falling apart—it just may be falling into place. God has the most beautiful and amazing ways of redeeming our past and using the conflicts we walk through to prepare us for our purpose in Him. (Remember the story of Joseph). 

It is a beautiful thing to see how the Lord causes all things to work for good. May God cause you to forget all the troubles of the past and to see His great plan and purpose for your life WITH HIM in 2018. He wants you to walk through the new door with your divine connections from Him. He has divinely aligned you with specific people on purpose and for you to fulfill your destiny in HIM. 

Choose to not settle for anything less than absolute victory! Choose to cooperate with the Holy Spirit and obey him immediately. Radical obedience opens doors that no man can close. Pray and believe God. Time spent in prayer is never wasted. 

Occupy till Jesus comes. It’s a new year—and one of acceleration when you partner with the HOLY SPIRIT. You can do all things through Christ who strengthens you! 

Blessings to you in 2018!

"Deborah imparted the tools, skills and understanding I needed to grow in the spirit. In this day's devotional, God also spoke to me of the hard lessons we all need to learn when "He" or your "Mentor" (such as Deborah) in my case, speaks into our life that we must choose to grow...

"...As a result of obedience in the midst of her desert experiences, I believe God has filled Deborah with wisdom that we would all do well to take to heart.
