All Our Heart

Jeremiah 29:13 13 And ye shall seek me, and find me, when ye shall search for me with all your heart.  (NIV)

What does it mean to search with all our heart?  Do we really search for God?  When we read the Bible do we read it searchingly to know God intimately?  Do we look as hard for Him throughout our day as we do searching for our car keys or our cell phone?  Do we seek God out throughout our day, not just when facing hard circumstances, but also seek Him when we feel we are on top of the world?  Do we seek to hear God speak to us through the Holy Spirit within us?  How often.  With all our heart means with every bit of our being.  Without our heart beating there is no life.  Without knowing God there is no life for God is life.  Let’s search for Him daily through the scriptures, the Holy Bible.  Let’s search for Him daily through looking and living in His creation.  Let’s search for Him daily through interaction with other people.  Let’s search for God with all our heart.  When we do, we will surely find Him for He is in everything, everywhere and always.

Seventh Day

Filed under: Cell Phone,Church,commandment,gifts,God,Uncategorized — by ginrich @ 7:49 pm

Exodus 31:15 15 For six days work is to be done, but the seventh day is a day of sabbath rest, holy to the Lord. Whoever does any work on the Sabbath day is to be put to death.  (NIV)

The statistics tell the story.  More people are dying of heart attacks in their 30’s and 40’s.  We are working 24×7.  We have our cell phones on us and answer tests about our jobs 7 days a week and throughout each days evening and even into the nights.  Many go to church on Sunday mornings but the rest of the day is spent catching up with work – either our professional jobs or work maintaining all the material stuff we’ve accumulated.  God worked for 6 days then took the 7th day to rest from His work.  He designed us to need to do the same.  We are choosing to ignore one of the 10 commandments.  All the commandments are equal in importance.  God gave them to us for our good.  We must ask ourselves why we choose not to take proper care of our bodies, minds and spirits by ignoring this commandment.  Let us choose to take one out of every 7 days as a day of rest – real rest.  Let us honor all the commandments.

Continued Action

John 11:44 44 The dead man came out, his hands and feet wrapped with strips of linen, and a cloth around his face.
Jesus said to them, “Take off the grave clothes and let him go.” (NIV)

The men weren’t finished working with Jesus when they rolled the stone away.  After Jesus commanded Lazarus to come forth (He had to use Lazarus’ name or all the dead would come forth.) He told the men to remove the burial clothes so Lazarus would be free.  When we see our prayers answered or our words taking effect or the devil starting to turn away, we are still team players with God.  We must continue to listen to Him and continue to obey His leading.  The battle won’t be over until Jesus returns to earth for His Bride (the body of believers).  Every day is a day to communicate with God.   Every day is a day for us to speak His word.  Every day is a day for us to act as the hands and feet of Jesus.  In this electronic age many have become lazy.  Let us be on our guard against spiritual laziness.  Let us immerse ourselves in the Scriptures, allow the Holy Spirit to give us interpretation for application and wisdom and be loving and obedient joint heirs with Jesus, God’s only son Who loved us so must He suffered on the cross for us and rose from the dead so we could be forgiven for our sins and be filled with the Holy Spirit to strengthen, comfort and guide us each day.

Cell Phone

1 Thessalonians 5:17 17 Pray without ceasing. (KJV)

I was sitting in a parking lot waiting for someone.  As I sat I observed all the people walking around.  I found it hard to find someone who didn’t have a cell phone to their ear or weren’t looking at a cellphone.  Today it seems we want to be in constant communication with others.  God want’s us in constant communication with Him.  We have a better connection than any cell phone provider.  We don’t need to be in range of a cell phone tower.  There is no place that we can’t have a perfect connection with God.  Our carrier is His Son, Jesus.  Our phone is the Holy Spirit.  All we need do is open our mouth and talk.  Do we keep our “cell phone” to God to our ear at all times?
