It's early Sunday morning, still dark and cold outside. No one stirring, except me, and the computer mouse. The house is quiet but still full of noises, only these noises, are the kind one can sleep through. The snoring of ones mate, the motor of the fridge, the wind blowing and rustling the leaves outside, the on/off switch of the furnish.
What's Life? Webster says: The quality that distinguishes a vital and functional being from a dead body or inanimate matter. The period from birth to death.
What's Life?: In "The Word" Jesus is Life......St. John. 14:6 "I am the Way, the Truth, and the LIFE." (written in Red, spoken by Jesus himself)
Gen. 2:9 says: In the middle of the garden is 'The Tree of Life.' Lev. 17:11 says: The Life of the flesh is in the Blood.
De. 12:23 says: The Blood is Life.
St. John. 6:35 Jesus says:" I am the Bread of Life,"
2Co.3:6 says: The Spirit that giveth Life.
Re. 2:7 says: If we are faithful unto death we shall receive a crown of Life.
Is life just plain or is it complex? It can indeed be both it's our choice, De. 30:19 "I call heaven and earth to record this day against you, that I have set before you life and death, blessings and cursing: therefore choose Life, that both thou and thy seed may live." (KJV)
I heard a Minister say, it doesn't take much faith to believe in something that can't fail. ' The Word,' of God can't fail, His word does not return unto Him void or empty, but it (The Word), returns back to God Full of what He sent it out to do.
Whatever that means to you, whatever you believe God's Word can do, It WILL DO! Whatever 'The Word' says it can do, if you believe it, It Will Do.
Ps. 107:20 "He sent [His Word] and Healed them," and delivered them from their destruction. (KJV) You can send 'The Word,' to heal the sick; Send 'The Word,' to heal broken marriages; Send 'The Word,' to heal your finances; Whatever you send it out to do in Jesus' Name, it will do. Pray 'The Word,' over every area of your life and watch God work it out for you. God is not a man that he should lie, nor the son of man that he should repent. God can't lie, He (God) said: try him and see, try praying
(The Word), God is then; obligated to perform it (The Word), on our behalf, God will rebuke the devourer for our sakes.
These instructions apply to those of us who believe, first that 'God Is,' and that he is a rewarder of those who diligently seek after him. Those of us who are sowers, givers, just like God. Tithers, offering givers, not giving grudgingly or of necessity, but because we love God, and we want to see the gospel preached all over the world. To further His Kingdom, and help increase it. Help lost souls, and see them come to Christ.
Oh God, my heart is fixed, my mind is made up, I'll forever believe you with my whole heart, and give myself unto prayer, praying 'The Word,' seeing your Glory manifest in my life, then giving you All the Glory for it. Thanking you for your loving kindness and tender mercy that's new to me each and every day.
Thank you Father for Life and Life more abundantly!
