Seek God's kingdom and righteousness then everything will follow.
In the book Colossians - teaches that whatever we keep on thinking - that is what you ?idolize?
From first thing in the morning to evening what are our thoughts? Is it the cell phone? The person you're in love with? Or the Bible?
The emphasis of the Bible is to keep you from sin but be aware that sin will also keep you from the Bible.
Little by little, before we knew it because of the increase of the wickedness we become lukewarm.
If we don't go back to the basic it can happen to all of us.
It's so important to bring our own Bible.
Learn to study on our own in our devotion. Be sensitive to the Holy Spirit.
Do not give up and be strong. Be strong in the Lord and His mighty power don't depend on your own.
(Don't let your hands be weak, don't throw the towel.)
Galatians 6:9 Let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up.
1 Corinthians 15:58 Therefore, my dear brothers and sisters, stand firm. Let nothing move you. Always give yourselves fully to the work of the Lord, because you know that your labor in the Lord is not in vain.
Our labor in the Lord is not in vain.
Don't expect too much that everything will be rewarded right away, it will happen at the right time.
Are we sensitive to God's word?
If you're not then it's a red flag and time to go back to the basic. We need to allow His word to encourage us.
If we are doing something without thinking - it's a "Habit" (going to The Bible study without your brain functioning) is not good because it comes out without a meaning.
To check the person if he is sick the doctor will always check the patients' appetite. Do we still have the appetite in God's word?
Search me oh God and know my heart.
If your basing your feelings in serving God. That is not good.
Stay on track and seek the Lord with all your heart.
No matter who you are if you don't have a real relationship with the Lord, you will be put into hell. Anyone who refuse to seek the Lord will be put to hell.
Remember that Asa was not a man pleaser, he pleases God more than man. Asa did right in the eyes of God.
Moral lesson here is that we need to please God more than man. Stand for what is right. Follow what the Bible teaches.
Be lead by the Holy Spirit and set our heart in things above, occupy until He comes.
