Verse of the day: "If you will make the decision that you don't mind inconvenience or interruption, then God can use you." -Joyce Meyer
The ultimate friendship:
The more time you spend with or around a friend, the more you pick up on their tendencies. Right? Ever notice how the friends or friend you hangout with the most you start to emulate or duplicate? We start to act more like them, talk like them, think like them...etc. So is the same for your relationship with Jesus. The more you hangout with Jesus and spend quality time with Him, the more you will act like Him and love like Him and BE more like Him. Isn't that the goal? Keep our eyes fixed on Jesus. Your relationship with Him is the only thing that truly satisfies your spiritual hunger. It is the only thing that will quench your thirst for life, because he IS life. Those other things start to matter less and less. He is the bread of life. We can eat as much food as we want but it will never be enough if we are using food to satisfy us in a way that only Jesus can. We cannot fill our God-shaped hole with anything other than God. "Man shall not live on bread alone, but on every Word that proceeds from the mouth of God."Matthew 4:4. People, places and things might bring us happiness...but happiness is dependent upon our "happenings." God will give us JOY which is everlasting and we can have joy with Him no matter what our circumstances are. That is true stability. Today I aim to sow to the Spirit and not to the flesh. For the fruits of sowing to the flesh are rotten and will be thrown away and burnt, but the fruit of the spirit will bear more fruit and bring eternal JOY.
