PRIDE BEFORE THE FALL

Be very careful who you step on, spit on, or lie on to get to the top, because you will pass them on the way down. One supervisor once told me that, a person must be careful of the foot they step on, because it might be connected to the buttocks they are kissing. Both  statements are true, and Biblically connected. Before destruction the heart of man is haughty, and before honor is humility (Proverbs 18:12; Psalm 10 :2). Isn’t it amazing that when a person has no education, no job, nothing of value to their name, they can be so humble, kind, meek and compassionate, with  all the good attributes that a person should portray, but as soon as they get that degree, job, house, car or some money to their name they are a changed person, they develop the Jekyll and Hyde personality, and totally forget who they were and where they are coming from.

We should never allow the pride of our hearts to deceive us, because it will bring us down (Jeremiah 49:16); one thing I want you to understand, If God won’t get the glory then you don’t have a story. However if we give God the glory, then it’s automatically a success story, we can do nothing without God, He owns and controls everything (Proverbs 28:25-26); lets not allow the fortunes of this world to change our concept of who we are and whose we are. Don’t get high-minded or arrogant when we get to the top, and putting all our hopes and trust in uncertain riches (1 Timothy 6:17-19). The love of money is the root of all kinds of evil, and the more you crave it, the further you get from God, which in turn brings sorrows into your life. You must remember that, we did not bring anything in this world and we definitely can’t take it with us; another thing you must realize, is that you can’t use money to buy your way into heaven, or out of hell; it does not buy you eternal life, or keep you from death, so why gain the world, and lose your soul. Godliness with contentment is great gain( 1 Timothy 6:6-12), so why not seek God, and let Him take care of you.

SPIRITUAL SUPER-DADDY

In life most people depend on a job, spouse, parents, a sugar daddy or sugar mommy to take care of them, which means they have to do something to keep the supplier of that money, food, clothes or shelter going. Some people do some unimaginable things, that is unethical, unrighteous, and plain disgusting, when you have to sell your soul to the devil, because of pride or greed then it’s unholy.

However, I must introduce you to my spiritual  super-daddy, who is also my sugar-daddy, my God, my redeemer, and my King who we all can depend on, trust, and who never leaves or forsake us. A sugar-daddy or mommy is not going to give you anything, if you are not connected to them in someway, or doing something that will merit the rewards; Our Heavenly Father is some what the same way, the big difference is we are not required to perform duties that is not Holy, acceptable, or reasonable to God;There is no father like Him,none that can be compared to Him,He is one of a kind.

Our Fathers requirements are simple: Delight yourself in the Lord,and He will give you the desires of your heart(Psalm 37:4); ask, seek, knock,and He will answer (Luke 11:9-10), but before you can do all that you must first accept God’s gift of His only begotten son Jesus Christ (John 3:16-17), then confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord, and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the  dead then you will be saved (Romans 10:9); Here is another gift, ‘repent and be baptized, every one of you, in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, and ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Spirit’ (Acts 2:38).

Now that you established a relationship with God, He has taken on the role as your super daddy, spiritual daddy, and your sugar daddy, so for you to start receiving those good, and perfect gifts which only comes from above ( James 1:17); we must present our bodies as living sacrifice, Holy and acceptable unto God which is our reasonable service (Romans 12:1). Seek ye first the kingdom of God and His righteousness and everything will be added unto you (Matthew 6:33); but my God shall supply all of my needs according to His riches in glory through Christ Jesus (Philippians 4:19); and whatever we ask, we receive of Him, because we keep His commandments, and do those things which are pleasing to Him (1 John 3:22); and whatever ye shall ask in my name, that will I do, that the Father may be glorified in the son. If ye shall ask anything in my name,I  will do it (John 14:13-14); He told us to ask and it shall be given unto us, seek and we will find, knock and it will be open unto us (Luke 11:9-10).

Trusting in God has afforded us the privilege, confidence and trust in our spiritual super daddy, that come what may He is able to see us through, King David tells us that, he will trust  God until his calamities have ceased to exist (Psalm 57:1). Would you like to be able to say that too, then go to the top of this blog, click on to the salvation page, then follow the instructions, it will be the sweetest day of your life, and better as you seek Gods will .

Now to the King Eternal, immortal, invisible, the only wise God, be the glory, praise, honor, and thanks, for using me to minister to His people, now and forever, in Jesus Name, amen.
