God’s Faithfulness vs Our Ego

Hebrews 13:8 Jesus Christ is the same yesterday and today and forever.
2 Timothy 2:13 If we are faithless, he remains faithful— for he cannot deny himself.

prospectiveSeveral things I need to share with you on faithfulness, when we aren’t faithful to God we assume that God will not be faithful to us. In reality you and I are faithful but we just aren’t as faithful to God as we should be. We are faithful to the things we want to do; for example; hanging out with our friends, social media, watching our programs on television, organizing groups, etc. Yeah, we are so faithful to the things that matter to us that we are consistent with it. We have no excuses to say we don’t know how to be faithful, for we already demonstrated that we can do it.

The other point I want to share is that God’s son Jesus Christ is the same yesterday and today and forever, which means He’s not changing. He won’t change His mind, nor His word. He is faithful even when we are not. I wonder if we even feel convicted?  Many of us don’t because we serve our ego’s so much that we think why, do I have to be faithful as long as I do what is acceptable, God will except it. Talk about an ego trip we have. No wonder we can’t serve God hundred percent our egos get in the way. You already are faithful to things you love now how about adjusting your faith and start by being faithful to reading your bible, praying, worship, tithing, serving others, start with small steps and watch what God will do in your life. I guarantee you that your ego will disappear because when we are faithful to God our egos has to flee, amen?

Your ego has you so puffed up that  you can’t see the Lord working in your life because you think it was something that you did on your own. I would like to quote a statement from a book I read and it is so fitting for this topic today. The author is Karon Phillips, from the book, “You’re Late again,  Lord; she said We don’t lose faith because we struggle. We struggle because we lose faith. It’s time for us all to let go of our egos, it’s one thing to be confident it’s another to be proudly and many of us are playing with dangerous explosives with our egos.

let the ego go get rid of it before it goes off in your life!!!

The Misunderstood of Comfort

2 Timothy 3:16 says” All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness:

When you think of comfort what comes to your mind? No, seriously think about it before you answer. Is comfort to you about being secure? Is it having things line up and in order? If it is then I hate to be the bare of bad news today, for comfort is neither of those or what we think it is. Comfort is this, the Bible is the word of God and is powerful and life changing. The promises of God start with when God tells us that all Scriptures in the Bible are inspired by God.

readingThe reason we are misunderstood about comfort is the fact that we aren’t relying on this very scripture of God. When we are left with not feeling sure of things or not having the ability within ourselves to fix it, we find no comfort, which brings on impatience. Impatience breeds a little  bit of arrogance now and then. This is why we feel that it was a waste of time, we lose energy and our focus; and began to question God. But if we would start by taking the comfort of God and His word and stop comparing ourselves to everything else. We will learn to embrace comfort and no longer live in the state of misunderstanding comfort.

Our biggest problem is ourselves, it’s how we process our thoughts, we expect things to be smooth sailing no storms at all. We believe that when things are well in our lives then we are living in true comfort, but the moment the earth shakes our foundation then we no longer living in comfort. That my friends is not living in comfort. Comfort is knowing not your ability but knowing His, God’s ability. Start doing that and when the storms comes you can say “I am living in comfort” it’s like anything else you just have to make up a made up mind to trust God. So embrace comfort today and every day, things will be much better for you when you do.

Happy Valentine’s Day to all of YOU!
