It’s up to you…

Matthew 5.3 (Phillips), “Happy are those who know their need for GOD, for the kingdom of heaven is theirs!” 

That means that all that GOD has to offer is available to the person who walks humbly before the LORD. All that GOD has to offer is that person’s when we live in dependence before the LORD.

The fact is that every one of us need JESUS CHRIST in our life. You need GOD’s power to make it this week.  If you think you don’t, you’ve got something coming.  HIS power is available.  And GOD is waiting to pour out HIS power on you.  But you’ve got to ask.  And you’ve got to admit that you need HIS help. 

If you quit reading this saying, “I don’t need GOD in my life this next week to make it” then Good Luck!  You’ll have to solve all of your problems on your own power, your own ability, your own strength and then wonder why you’re tired all of the time. 

When you walk before the LORD and say, “I can do all things through CHRIST who strengthens me, Apart from HIM I can do nothing”, when you have that attitude – then that power will give you supernatural power to work on those problems you can’t changed and you’ve tried, those areas of your life you can’t get control of and you’ve tried, those relationships that are falling apart and you can’t do anything about it.  That’s what it means to be spiritually poor.

John 13.17 (GNT), “Now that you know this truth, how happy you will be if you put it into practice!”

Ask yourself a question, where do I need to practice humility this next week?  Where do I need to depend on GOD more this next week? 

You need GOD’s power in your life.  But it only comes when you humble yourself and say, “GOD!  Help!”  The person who says, “Help!” is the humble person and the person who is the humble person, GOD says, “There’s nothing I won’t do for that person! The kingdom of heaven will be theirs.”

Just a thought from the front porch…
