I am tired of this life, there is nothing I haven't tried, but it is not working, I rather cause the day I was born, than to go on living like this, where is the life I was promised, I woke up every day to find out that I have been entrapped in this world, just to survive and not to live my dream, oh Lord, what is the problem. Help me, please help me.
Then the Lord God formed man from the dust of the ground and breathed into his nostrils the spirit of life and man became a living being. (Genesis 2:6)
These are the two entity that made up man; the dust of the ground and the spirit of life. But, without the spirit of life man is nothing but a dust. The dust is of this world and the spirit of life is of God. The dust of the ground is our body while the spirit of life is the God in man. The body does not know the things of God; he is concerned with the things of this world, whereas the spirit in man knows the things of God, because he is of God. The body uses sensetical knowledge to influence itself, while the spirit in man applies spiritual knowledge to influence both the body and the spirit of life.
This is the reason why God warn man not to conform to the system of this world, because if he does, he will reap the result which is death. It all depend on what you are seeing, are you seeing what the body want or what your spirit want, whichever one you see and re-act ,the result only tells you who is in charge of your life, it tells you if you are walking according to the dictates of the dust, or the according the word of God.
Going to church doesn't make you spiritual, claiming to be a good Christian doesn't make you holy. Lying, gossiping, backbiting, hating your neighbour, taking that which doesn't belong to you, refusing to help those in need when you have the what it takes to help them, are all characteristic of the dust, not until you cease to the dust, you are nothing but FOOD for the devil.
Look around, what will it profit you, if you gain the whole world, and on the day you die, you end up in a casket, with nothing but your body made from dust? Mind you, after death comes judgement, and the judgement for the body is dust shall you return, but what about your spirit, that which gives life to the body, have you thought about it, please do now, God is talking to you, cease to be dust, and live according to the word of God.
So what you go through now in your life, is as a result of your belief, you thoughts are of a dust, and you live your life according to the dictate of your ego, and the ego will only stave your spirit the God in you, and since that is where joy, peace and prosperity dwells, that is where you can live life with a purpose, and that purpose is the will of God. And the will of God is the God in you.
When you give your life to God, through Christ Jesus, you are different, you are dead to the flesh, yet you live in the spirit, it is not you that live anymore, but the Christ in you. He is now your all in all, you are not your own, you have been bought with a price. He promise to guide and protect you as long as you live your life according to his word. Then the devil cannot eat you. So stop to be dust for that is the devil's food.
so don't be tired of living life, it belong to God.
You are a blessing.
