magnitude of His Worth to me. People see me and think I have it all together, like my life is all figured out and spicy but the truth is that sincerely speaking, I’m far from what it seems like I look like but God has got me together, he fills my cracks and flaws with His perfection. I’m still His work in progress. So don’t conclude too quickly. When you take that bold step of quitting to see God as a scarecrow and begin to see Him in the lime light, you’ll learn to grow in love Him more and more if you’re willing. In this case I’m not referring to you being a church worker, or a perpetual attender of church meetings or being Mother Theresa, what I’m referring to is that life you have with God in the absence of the previous list, that life you have with God when no one is watching. An intimate relationship with God is what I’m talking about here. These days people confuse practicing religion for intimacy with God. Practicing religion is the activity and being intimate with God is an internal sacrifice which is the main ish and is always worth it in the end.
In essence, what you perceive God to be in your life matters a whole lot. What you perceive God to be in your life is what you’ll live with Him being. I’ve got this friend of mine that perceives God as His G(Guy/Best Buddy) and I’m sure that’s what God has been to him. Please if you have to adjust your lens to give a better focus/view of whom God is, please do it. The truth is that you actually cannot experience God’s love or hold on to His love and at the same time love the things of the world, you have to let one go( I bet you letting go of God’s love for the things of the world isn’t a wise decision 1John 2:15-17). Now talking about things of this world, my simple definition for “Things of this world” is anything outside the heart and word of God. My reason for buttressing this is because when the phrase “things of the world” is mentioned, people confuse it with material things(money, cars, houses, good clothes, shoes e.t.c). The things of the world are abstract. God has/owns the cars, houses, money e.t.c and blesses His children with them. So who says you can’t enjoy material things in Christ?!.. Where there is a problem is when you allow the intangible worldly traits(see 1John 2:16) creep in to steal your focus from God and place it in the material things He has blessed you with. I hope I’m making sense here?!..
God is not a Scarecrow for real. Trust me I have seen, tested and experienced His love(sure it’s just a chip) and i can testify it’s sooooo genuine and unconditional, it cannot be found anywhere else. God isn’t looking for that perfect and upright man who has his life all together(doesn’t exist), he’s looking for the imperfect and broken man to love him/her gradually to perfection. So don’t be scared to give in to Him, in the long run you’ll find out he’s actually all you need.
Have an amazing evening!… Toodles!..😉
