The Measure You Use
Love you all, praying for you.
I just love God’s Word. It addresses things, It gives God’s ways, so different from ours. It tells you something about something. And there’s more where that came from, and He has more to say about it. I love that God brings us the timely word that we need. But He also invites us to seek and find more. So thankful for PRISM – that keeps me coming back to what He wants to reveal. Praying you’ll review the PRISM Topic – Measure – God's Word is clear about the measure you get and the measure you use. Praise God He has given you the full measure of everything you need. Your portion is fully sufficient, more than enough, enough to share with others. God said, "Be careful how you hear – the measure you use is the measure you get. He said be careful how you measure yourself - Don't think of yourself more highly that you aught, but humbly, according to the measure of faith He has given you. God said use a small measure when judging others - don't judge, because that's the measure with which you will be judged. But when it comes to giving use a big measure. Because that's the measure that will be coming back to you. God said He has given to every one the measure of grace you need. And your portion of grace is as big as the gift of Christ. God reminds us that your life is but a measure, a mere breath. God warns against an unfair measure - two differing weights, unfair scales to cheat people in money and business dealings – He despises those who deal dishonestly. God wants us as a body with every member supplying it’s part, to mature to the full measure of Christ. And about God... "Who has measured the waters (the oceans) in the hollow of his hand?" His power is beyond measure. He loves you, that’s why He will correct you, but only in just measure. He’s a loving and faithful God, compassionate and full of mercy. He has given you the measure of faith, and the measure grace you need. (the power to do what He has assigned you to do, and the power to say "No" to the sin that would separate you. Praying that you will remember - whatever you need - He has given in full measure. Praying that you will remember that the measure you use will be measured you. Praying that your giving, your faith and your hearing will always be huge measures, so He can use that full measure to return to you. Praying that you will know that His love for you - just like the Holy Spirit He gives - is beyond measure - you'll never run out.
Love you all,
