Living things Grow!

Like newborn babies, crave pure spiritual milk, so that by it you may grow up in your salvation,now that you have tasted that the Lord is good

1 Peter 2:2-3

—————————————————-

I remember in primary school being taught about the characteristics of living things, One of them was that ‘Living things Grow’ I love the language in this translation which uses the word’ Crave ‘ which means to have a very strong desire for something.

The writer, Peter who was with Jesus and witnessed him first hand, he encourages and recommends us to have a very strong desire to Grow in our walk with the Lord, now that we know him and have accepted him into our lives.

Growth in all areas of life takes initiative, to Grow muscle you have to eat right, exercise, work out, to Grow in business you have to learn your market, competition, and the emerging trends, to have healthy and functional relationships we must have a strong desire to know, love and understand the people in our lives…etc…

Growth is necessary especially in our knowledge and relationship with God.

Go and Grow!

ALL OF IT!

Commit your way to the LORD, Trust also in Him, and He will do it.
Psalm 37:5

This week my prayer is that before we even start on anything, we place all of it in his hands, and most importantly the humility to accept what HE chooses to give to us….be it resources, opportunities, connections, directions, detours etc

Remember that!

Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall trouble or hardship or persecution or famine or nakedness or danger or sword? No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us.

Romans 8:35

Now is the time!

Whoever watches the wind will not plant; whoever looks at the clouds will not reap.
Ecclesiastes 11: 4

Now is the time to get started, we don’t have tomorrow guaranteed but we have today. When we do our part, it is an act of faith, and this pleases God. For without faith we cannot please God (Hebrews 11:6 )
Don’t let the weather outside stop you, don’t let conflicts, inadequacies, people’s opinions get in the way of the plan of God for your life.

It’s possible!

Motive!

When you ask, you do not receive, because you ask with wrong motives, that you may spend what you get on your pleasures.
James 4:3 (NIV)

Keyword: Motive
mo·tive
\ˈmō-tiv, 2 is also mō-ˈtēv\
noun
: a reason for doing something
Full Definition
1 : something
(as a need or desire) that causes a person to act

Message:
Yesterday we talked about asking God to give us wisdom for every step we take. Well, in today’s verse, we are told that we do not receive when we ask, simply because our motives are wrong or not properly aligned with God’s!
My prayer is that we will seek wisdom on what we need to ask for, how, why and when!

Imagine being in the presence of the richest man i.e. Jeff Bezos of Amazon, he tells you to ask for anything you need for your project / business/ dream to take off!
What would you do? Do you speak your mind right away? or request for sometime to consult with your team, partners, lawyers, family etc?

It will take wisdom to pull this off without messing up the opportunity right? I have been there and learnt very very hard lessons!

Today please take some time before the Lord and ask for wisdom to ask the right thing with the right motive and most importantly ask him to realign your motives with His!

Have a blessed day!
