Love you all, praying for you,
I just love God’s Word – it reveals things. It stops you from what you were going to do, and tells you what you should do. Have you ever noticed how easy it is to get confused between what seems right, and what is right? In every decision in life – there is God’s way and man’s way. Man’s way seems right, God’s way is way different, and way better. Praying that you will regularly review the PRISM Topic – God’s Way or man’s way – this truth will save you from a lifetime of mistakes. I just love God’s Word – it has some sobering verses... Psalms 30:11 – You rebuke and discipline men for their sin; you consume their wealth like a moth – each man is but a breath. God’s warning is clear. Those who pursue wealth, but not righteousness, will get neither. They will end up with neither money or goodness. It’s sobering - what you could spend a life pursuing, could disappear like the morning dew of a hot summer day. There is a vital discernment required for a life that is a full life, that fulfills God’s purpose for you - to understand the difference between need and seed. Praise God, He gives you what you need, and He gives you what to seed. Those who hold back the seed, hold back the need, because seed always produces – what you need and more seed. Some people only pursue what they need. They pursue wealth only to end up with nothing, or only money. Most people strive to get, not strive to give. Humility and the fear of the LORD bring wealth, honor and life. The blessing of the LORD brings wealth, and He adds no trouble to it. You can pursue wealth, or God can bring it. If you pursue wealth and not righteousness, it will be gone. But if you pursue God and His Word and His will for you, wisdom fills houses with rare and beautiful treasures. Humility and the Fear of the LORD, bring wealth, honor and life. Those who pursue God are wealthy before the money comes. They are wealthy even if the money goes. Their wealth is in the LORD – the owner of it all. He gives them what they need, and gives them what to seed. Just like what to pray and what to say, discernment needed. Those who value God, more than the things He owns (and He owns everything), are always wealthy. They have joy, purpose, contentment, blessing. Their motives are different, and their result is different. Like the golden eggs that you are trying to keep people from stealing, or the golden goose that keeps on laying more. God’s ways are so much better. His WORD is where you start. PRISM every day – those five things you can do in God’s Word – they will never come up empty. It is wisdom you need for today. PIVAT for His plans – if you are busy doing what He has planned for you – your fruit will be great, and what you need will always come. Fear will be gone, praise will be your clothing, joy will be your anointing, and righteousness will set you apart. God’s blessing will follow, contentment and confidence in the LORD will have you walking joyfully and diligently in the next thing He has prepared for you to do. His joy in you will be complete and your joy will be full. Would you rather have joy or money? That’s like wisdom or wealth. Better to have wisdom. Wealth without wisdom is NFL (not for long). But wisdom brings wealth like seed brings harvest. Praying that you will invest in God’s Word today, that you will invest your words today speaking His Word. Praying that you will speak life, so you get what you speak. That you will speak encouragement to others so you too will be encouraged, praying that you will encourage someone to obey today – that your obedience increases, so your testimony increases, and His glory can increase because of His life in you!
