God wants to be your life. He knows your heart, your trouble, weaknesses, needs and desires. You need to make a mental shift to seek God’s will and not your will. Selfishness and own will causes a war. God is waiting for you to surrender freely to Him, He will not take what you don’t want to give. Ask yourself the question are you doing your best with what God gave you? Luke 16:10 “He that is faithful in that which is least is faithful also in much: and he that is unjust in the least is unjust also in much.” Do not compare yourself to others.
Focus on yourself and be thankful for today and for what you have been given today. You can do all things through Christ who strengthens you, but only if you understand the trials explained in Philippians 4:12, know what it is to be in need, and I know what it is to have plenty. I have learned the secret of being content in any and every situation, whether well fed or hungry, whether living in plenty or want.” Your eyes should be on the spirit and not on the natural. Do not fall in love with money, because money belongs to God.
You were bought with a price and you don’t belong to yourself. Matthew 16:24 “Then Jesus told his disciples, “If anyone would come after me, let him deny himself and take up his cross and follow me. 25 For whoever would save his life[a] will lose it, but whoever loses his life for my sake will find it.” If you want something let it go, God knows the desires om your heart and you have to believe that God will bring it to you, because God says so.
God will check how you handle what He has given to you, to see your obedience. God does owe you anything, He paid the ultimate price so you can have life. Praise God for what you have and be content with what you have. Are you doing what God wants you to do? In this sermon Pastor Jaco looks at obeying God, understanding the price God paid for you and being thankful for what God gives you and not to feel that God is being unfair to you in the process.
17;21 – Just be thankful for today (prophetic word)
