A thing that bothers me much is the amount of Christians that send around messages that say if we type amen and send the message to 20 (or however many) people, God is going to bless us and we are going to see a miracle or something wonderful will come our way. To me this is total ‘fortune telling’.
I am blessed because I am a child of God through accepting Jesus Christ as my savior. By grace alone am I saved. No amount of typing ‘amen’ and forwarding a message is going to bring miracles into my life. My aim is to love the Lord my God with all that I am and have. Out of that I will be blessed, even when I am facing great trials, I am blessed because it is bringing me closer to my God.
To be blessed by God is to be in His presence and to know that His will is being done in my life. Obedience to Him will come from the heart through Holy Spirit, and does not depend on any ritual. Please Christians, avoid this sort of thing.
Don’t let Television and FB or google be your God time. ‘Lock’ yourself in your inner room away from everyone, where it is you and the word of God. Learn to know God in the Bible. Let all the other outlets just be a ‘by the way’ thing. Whatever verses are given to you from the word, you must study what comes before it and after it and what the rest of the Bible says about it. Don’t be deceived.
HERE IS A VERY BIG CHALLENGE FOR YOU AND ME; no touching of our phones or computers before we have given the first fruits of our day to meeting with Jesus in the Bible. At least an half hour in the word and praying before picking up our phones. That is a real hard one. Can you do it? Give it a go and see how truly blessed you are by getting to know Jesus more and more.
With much Jesus love.
