Wig’s Word of God Today 6-8-2011
Therefore, I am content with weaknesses, insults, hardships, persecutions, and constraints, for the sake of Christ; for when I am weak, then I am strong. 2 Corinthians 12:10
But seek first the kingdom (of God) and His righteousness, and all these things will be given you besides. Matthew 6:33
2 Corinthians 12:1-10, Psalm 34 & Matthew 6:24-34
I often sit and wonder how people can go through their life not wanting to thank God in some sort of way. When I am given discord by someone concerning my joy in loving my love of Christ Jesus, I simply smile and reply, “God’s Free Will allows you the opportunity to embrace or deny Him. I pray for the sake of your soul you learn to accept Jesus as your personal Savior and repent from your sins to live in peace.”
I met a lady on the campaign trail this week who struck out at me when I handed her my information card because it says at the top of my card I believe in strong Biblical Teachings by saying, “I don’t believe in this #@$%, our country is screwed up the way it is because of people like you.” Smiling I replied, “Our country is where it’s at because God was taken out of our schools, our history books and our homes. With God America prospered, without God America is doomed. Our Great Country allows you to believe in what you want to believe and I honor your free will as a God-given right.” As I turned to leave, I looked back at her and said, “God Bless you.”
We must as Jesus tells us in Matthew, “seek first the kingdom (of God) and His righteousness,” when we meet and talk to people who are confused or misguided about the joy of knowing and accepting Christ as their guide to their Eternal Home. Too many times we become slaves to the needs of the world instead obeying the needs of God by being an active God-fearing person in every aspect our lives. We can’t be part-time Christians. No, we must give more to humanity for His Glory every moment of every day. The worries of life have a natural God-given answer if we just learn to Trust in the LORD with everything being conscious of His Presence at home, at work and at play.
So we ask in prayer: Dear God, we pray today to live up to the persecutions, insults and hardships for the Glory of You the Father of all to accomplish Your Will. We say a special prayer today for Raquel who seeks You LORD to help her in deed and in thought. We pray today we can always seek Your Kingdom first to live by example and not by life-altering requests. We ask this in Jesus Name. Amen.
God Bless His Truth for America,
