SPIRITUAL INVESTMENT

People invest in everything ,from:stocks,bonds,relationships ,education,children,etc.
But what about a spiritual investment. What’s a spiritual investment? Time spent with God,in prayer,devotions,and meditation,which leads to obedience to His word.We all like to invest in our future, put away a little something for the rainy day, old folks used to say.

When you give,especially to God,He says,in Luke 6:38
“Give, and it will be given to you: good measure, pressed down, shaken together, and running over will be put into your bosom. For with the same measure that you use, it will be measured back to you.”
A brother in Christ, introduced me to the investment of a life time. He opened my eyes to the fact, that our tithes, and offerings is our spiritual wall street, where God is our investor, and we will never require a bailout package, your spiritual bank will never belly up, or be bankrupt, your investment is safe and secure.

Heavens vaults holds treasures for us that moth nor rust can corrupt or contaminate it, and thieves  cannot  break into (Matthew 6:19-21), you are guaranteed a return on every heavenly investment,”Bring all the tithes into the storehouse, that there may be food in my house, and try me now herewith, saith the Lord of hosts, if I will not open for you the windows of heaven, and pour out for you a blessing, that there shall not be room enough to receive it” Wow! Listen it gets better,”And I will rebuke the devourer for your sakes, and he shall not destroy your fruits (Malachi 3:10-11). Now for all my financial geniuses, tell me who is better? The government try to bail, wall street out of it’s financial dilemma with a bail-out-plan, that failed. But Gods plan tells us to bring it to Him, and He will in turn open up the windows of heaven and pour onto us blessings. He also states that, He will supply all our needs according to His riches in glory through Christ Jesus (Philippians 4:19), seek ye first the kingdom of God, and His righteousness, and everything will be added unto me(Matthew 6:33), sorry my friends I would rather trust God. Labor not to be rich, cease from thine own wisdom, wilt thou set thine eye upon that which is not? For riches make themselves wings; they fly away like an eagle towards heaven (Proverbs 23:4-5). For we brought nothing into this world, and it’s a fact we can’t take nothing out (1 Timothy 6:7).

 I have never seen a vault behind a casque, we are buried in a vault but not with money. A tithe is a tenth of your income, while an offering is a sacrifice, that is ceremonially offered to God. Tithe is something you owe, and an offering is something that you give voluntarily.   

 Don’t ever be confused about who is your source, and supplier, it’s not your job, education, boss, spouse, or luck, it is God. If you look at the poeple on the currency you work so hard to get, most if not all the people are dead, depending on where you live, so you must conclude or concur that the money couldn’t save them.
REMEMBER :
The lips of the righteous feed many, But fools die for lack of wisdom. The blessing of the Lord makes one rich, And He adds no sorrow with it.
{Proverbs 10:21-22 }.

The only one who can save you is God through His only begotten son Jesus Christ of Nazareth (John 3:16-17,john 14 :6) do you know Him, if not go directly to the top of this blog, click on to the salvation page, follow the instructions, and you are on your way, trust me it is the best thing you ever did.          

I  give God the glory, praise, honor, and thanks for using me to get His message out, I pray it edify, exhort, and blesses you as it did me, may His grace and mercy be yours now and forever, and you walk according to His will, and ways in Jesus Name, amen

HIS GRACE IS SUFFICIENT

Sometimes it takes drastic circumstances or measures to get our undivided attention. Why must we lose a love one, our jobs, possessions, or get sick, before we turn to God. The sad thing about it, is that’s the time, when we are exposed, and most vulnerable, thus allowing us to do, and accept things, we will regret later on in life. But I must tell you, that is the time when God is waiting with open arms to receive us. He tells us, ”His grace is sufficient for us; because His strength is made perfect in our weakness” (2 Corinthians 12:9-10). We should never allow, our circumstances to dictate how we think, or behave. Because, it is then we make the biggest mistakes of our lives. Normally, this is the best time to seek God (Matthew 6:33), and acknowledge Him, so that He can direct your path (Proverbs 3:5-6).

Please don’t accept, and receive Gods word in some areas of your life, and don’t apply it, when you need it the most. ‘Gods word should always be a lamp to our feet, and a light to our path'(Psalms 119:105). Gods word is the best weapon, that exists to combat the enemies, of our thoughts, doubts, fears, evils, mediocrity, and low self-esteem. Allow the word of God to speak life into your circumstances. Lets start with,”many are the afflictions of the righteous; but the Lord delivered him out of them all”(Psalms 34:19),God says,”His plans for us, is to prosper, and not harm us, to give us hope, and a future (Jeremiah 29:11), we are more than conquerors, because He loves us (Romans 8:37), when all else fails, there is only one alternative, and He is God, follow the professionals in the Bible, who have been there, and done that.

One of my favorites was David, he had a tumultuous life, troubles, defeat, failures, and disappointments, but he was still blessed, and highly favored. Check it out for your self, he wrote most, if not all the Psalms, listen to this one, “I was young, and now I am old; but I have never seen the righteous forsaken; nor his seed begging bread” (Psalms 37:25). All through the Psalms, he beged, cried, prayed, and God always helped him. Because, David always praised, thanked, and sang to Him (God). Listen to what David said, “I will praise the Lord at all times; His praises shall continually be in my mouth” (Psalms 34:1), “but I will hope continually, and will praise you yet more and more, my mouth shall tell of your righteousness, and your salvation all the day, for I do not know their limits”(Psalms 71:14 -15). When God helps you, are you hiding it? It’s no secret what God can do. Are you taking all the credit for yourself, telling people, how educated you are, or how pretty you are, that’s why you are where you are, you better stop that. Please folks allow God to supply your needs, according to His riches in glory through Christ Jesus(Philippians 4:19), and let the world knows.

Beloved, God has sent His only begotten son, into the world, as payment for our sins, if you believe, and accept Him (John 3:16; John 6:40). I don’t care what anyone says, Jesus is the only way to God, John 14:6 says so.

I implore you, to taste and see that the Lord is good, and blessed are the people who trust in Him (Psalm 34:8, and 119:103), if you have never met Jesus, let me introduce you to Him, go to the top of this blog, click on to the salvation page, and follow the instructions, trust me it will be the best decision, and choice you ever make. I give God the glory, honor, praise, and thanks for using me to deliver, his message to His people, I hope it blessed you, as it did me, I pray that He will keep you, and guide you, to obey His will, and travel down His paths in Jesus Name, amen.
