Living Life God's Way 2/4/2008: God's Grace Is Enough
- +Living Life God's Way+
Do not let your happiness depend on something you may lose....
only upon the Beloved who will never pass away.
C. S. Lewis
What causes fights and quarrels among you?
Don't they come from your desires that battle within you?
We have a tendency to make life much more complicated than
necessary. The simple pleasures of life are too often replaced, with a
competition to have bigger and better than our neighbor. We live in an
age of propaganda. Unfortunately, much of the time we take the bait off
the hook as it is being fed to us. Life is not about fancy cars, big
homes, or corporations. It is so much more. We waste so much time
working and striving for the things that are not real instead of seeking
the things that are eternal.
Money is the root of all evil. The money itself is not evil but the
effect it has on our hearts when we become consumed with it, is. Our
human nature tends to lean towards envy and strife, but God's grace is
greater than our human nature. He wants us to enjoy life, an abundant
life full of joy, peace and love. If we take the bait we won't really
get our hearts desires at all, we will receive instead, fear, anxiety,
depression, and strife. It is like a tug of war with our souls, but we
are the winners because God's grace is bigger than the war that rages
within our hearts.
Prayer: I have given you my heart Lord, help me to give you my all. Give
me the strength to deal with the war within my soul. Your grace is
greater. Without you my life is without meaning. Let my desires become
Your desires and fulfill them in my life. I love you, Jesus. Amen.
