I’m left with a question for our hearts~ How would the Lord describe my relationship with him?

I believe the honest answer reveals my rate of growth in eternal knowledge and my extent of foolish living in a casual relationship with the Lord.

My desire is to continually live in reverent relationship with the Lord.  One that is characterized by respectful fear that honors His position, His presence, His promises and His priorities.

 

Position~ Above all thing: The King of Kings

Power~ All powerful

Presence~ In heaven & In His children

Promises~ To love, to forgive, to be with, and to provide for His Children

Priorities~ His children are to love Him above all else-obey His commands- & love others as themselves

How does the Lord describe our relationship with Him………….. Committed ~  Casual  ~ Consequential   ?????

Committed:  continual purposeful growth in relationship and eternal knowledge

Casual:  occasional unintentional growth in relationship and knowledge of God

Consequential:   random unsustained grow in relationship and knowledge of God

Will we be purposeful in our relationship with the Lord and grow in the knowledge and experience of His position, power, presence, promises, and priorities for us His children?

Live out your purpose child of the King of Kings!!!

Week #23 2 Peter 1: 3-4

The low power flashes across the screen on our electronics,  the change oil light, low fuel, and check engine light flash and chime on our vehicle dashboard, and the low water light flashes on our coffee maker.  All of these signs are built in to help us maintain the effective and uninterrupted performance of, in some cases, the necessities of daily life in our modern world.  What happens if we ignore the initial flash and put off attending to the warning signs?  Immediately  nothing.  But if neglecting to respond becomes a habit we might find our self in distress trying to remedy the issue in a rush and frustration.  I’m sure I am not the only one with a story or two of delayed response.  As our experiences flow through our minds I’d like us to consider what low power lights flash for us personally in our spiritual life.

I imagine that most of us have a cell phone that we use on a regular basis.  So let’s consider what happens if we don’t plan to recharge it’s battery regularly.   If we neglect to be purposeful we have a greater potential for a power crisis.  Can  anyone relate?  Similarly, we must plan to recharge our spiritual life to live a godly life that honors the Lord.  Sometimes it is easy to lose sight of our need to stay charged with the divine power that God has given to us to live a godly life with Him.   Peter tells us in 2 Peter 1: 3-42 Peter 1: 3-4
English: World English Bible - WEB

3 seeing that his divine power has granted to us all things that pertain to life and godliness, through the knowledge of him who called us by his own glory and virtue; 4 by which he has granted to us his precious and exceedingly great promises; that through these you may become partakers of the divine nature, having escaped from the corruption that is in the world by lust.

that God has given us everything we need.  The days that it feels like we don’t have everything we need to live a God honoring life are the days we need a super charge of His divine power.

This first week of June puts us right on the edge of Summer and all it’s activity.  For me it will be full of moving vans, visiting family, unpacking, setting up a new home, and prepping to send kids to college.  I know if I don’t plan for personal spiritual power charging it is not going to happen.   What do I mean by spiritual power charging?  In basic terms it is daily devoting time to build my relationship with Christ and allow Him to empower my day.  These daily connection points  will look different from time to time but are centered around constantly building my knowledge of Him and His precious and great promises for me, as His child.  I plan to have each morning begin with prayer and a minimum of reading a daily verse that is sent to my email just to help me start out focused on God being my everything.   Also, to help keep my heart focused on Him, during busy times, I will listen to worship music throughout the day.  Bonus charge sessions in the Summer are when I get to pull out my Bible, read a section of scripture, and record my thoughts in my journal.  I’m praying for many bonus charging sessions this season because life is so much more fun and abundant when lived on a full spiritual charge!

We have to remember God gave us all the divine power we need to live a godly life for Him.  We just need to stay connected to Him, our power source, to live out the  fully charged and abundant godly life He has purposed for each of us.

What is your charging plan?

How are you staying connected?
