Yes, you read that correctly, it’s SON-Day!!!
Today is the day that the Lord has made, and I Chose to Rejoice in it.
We talked about that last week and I guess it’s still on the Lord’s heart, because He just brought it to my spirit again.
What choices are you making? Are you making choices to rejoice in ALL that is happening in your life and All that has happened in your life?
Do you believe that NOTHING happens by chance? Do you believe that God is ordering and has ordered your footsteps? Do you believe that God opens doors and God closes doors? Do you believe that God has you in the palm of His hand and is working ALL things out for your good? (Remember, the scripture says: Romans 8:28 “And we know that God causes everything to work together for the good of those who love God and are called according to his purpose for them.)
Sidenote: It’s important here to remember the two bold sections of that scripture. You can’t be out there doing your own thing and then expect God to work everything out. You can’t drive your car off a bridge and expect God to heal you after you crash. It doesn’t work that way. Don’t take the scripture out of context.
However, that being said, the Lord will work everything out for our good if we are purposeful in our living and if we are seeking HIM first and obedient to the directions and plans that He has for us. That doesn’t mean that we don’t misstep sometimes. But, if we do, God will surely bring us back into alignment. Another sidenote: sometimes correcting our course takes more time than WE would like, but GOD, will get us back in alignment, if we truly seek HIM.
Last week I heard Pastor Jentezen Franklin talk about True Conversion. I have been chewing on that term all week. It made me think of those who love God but are living their lives for themselves. They aren’t completely sold out for God. They aren’t seeking God for HIS will for their lives. They are more concerned about climbing the corporate ladder, going out on Friday night and having drinks with friends, or whatever the case may be. Then PJ went on to say; someone who has had a True Conversion is asking God – “What do You want me to do?”.
I will leave you with this: Have you had a True Conversion? Is God first in your life? Are you seeking Him for direction? When I went from religion to relationship, I felt like I would walk off the end of a bridge, if the Lord asked me to. In a self-check moment, where do you feel you are in your walk with the Lord? It’s risky to be ALL-IN but it is sooooooooo worth it!!! It’s sooooooooo rewarding!!! It’s soooooooo fulfilling!!! My worst days being ALL-IN are so much greater, better, than any of my best days combined living in the world.
