What is the “status quo”? I believe it’s a combination of this; go to school, get a job, work ‘to build someone else’s dream’ for 40 years, retire on a ‘barely getting by’ pension/retirement fund, maybe travel a little, die. Well, who wants that? I certainly don’t!! Here’s another “status quo” thinking; go to church, but don’t actually read your bible to know for yourself what God’s plan is for you. Only believe what your told, if you start believing that God wants you to prosper and has blessed you, then you are of the “prosperity gospel” crowd and basically, a blasphemer. Well, I say all that is hog wash! I read my bible and attend a church that teaches the bible, ‘the one and only Gospel, the Gospel of Jesus Christ’ and my bible says that God, my Father, wants me to prosper and be in health, even as my soul prospers. Jesus said He came to give me life abundantly! I believe the I am an heir of the Abrahamic covenant through Jesus Christ being blessed to be a blessing. I believe that my Father (just like earthly fathers who are made in His image) wants me to be happy, healthy and have more than enough so as not to struggle in this life. I believe that God puts desires in our hearts to rise above the status quo, to give Him glory because the world will see the things we accomplish could never have happened on our own but only by our total faith and trust in Him. I don’t think people realize the true miracle of salvation. When we receive Jesus into our hearts, we are not merely saved from eternal damnation and hell, as great as that is, there is so much more to it. Friends, the bible says that when we confess Jesus as Lord that we are transformed, we are a new species of being, the Holy Spirit joins with our spirit and now we have become 1/3 God!! That’s right, one third of our being is essentially God. We are made in His image, spirit, soul and body. 1 John 4:17 As He is, so are we in this world. Our problem is getting our soul (mind, emotions and will) to line up with the Spirit in us. The body is our house, it only does what the mind tells it to. So, because we live in a fallen, physical world, we all have various mindsets that are contrary to the Word of God. This is why many mock and ridicule those who dare to confess and proclaim that they are blessed, healed, prosperous, happy. They actually will tell you ‘God blesses with ‘spiritual things’ and doesn’t want that for you and just who do you think you are to say such things anyway?’ I”m here to tell not to believe them, don’t let the haters quench your fire! You Do You!!! Start that business, change your diet to be healthy, declare you’re healed and run that marathon, wear those psychedelic colors from your youth, do whatever God puts into your heart to do. Who cares what anyone thinks? God’s opinion is the only one that matters!!So that’s my 2 cents, I welcome yours.
We’ve all been told since childhood to take vitamins for good health. We need supplements because the chemicals put on the plants and in the soil, strip the nutrients from the food. Unless you buy organic or grow your own food, chances […]
