Luke 16:9-13 <=== Click to open and read more.View this post on Instagram
Jesus is teaching in this scripture. Luke 16:9-13 It's pretty clear. It's beyond me how we can be so obstinate, hateful, and unruly toward God. If we want blessings, we need to get our vertical alignment aligned. We need to let go of wanting and being so selfish. It never ends well. I grieve that I'm so wretched. Thank God for Jesus and His gift of salvation. Without Him, I'd be going straight to hell. No get out of jail free card.    What have you done with Jesus? I challenge you to seek Him, surrender to Him, and live (all in) for Him. I have! It's a bumpy ride but, oh so worth it!
The key thought in the book of Joshua is that as long as Israel served God, they prospered.
There it is again. Obedience to God. Serving Him is obeying Him.
When we remove our agenda and surrender to Him lovingly, we’ll be prosperous. There’s more to obedience than meets the eye. As the title says, servitude, it’s about your attitude while serving Him.
Truly serving Him is about removing our wants and replacing them with His wants.
It’s all in His word. Go read it and find out for yourselves.
(Note: This is not a message in favor of the prosperity gospel.)
What’s your attitude about serving God? Comment, let’s chat!
Being responsible? It’s hard, in today’s society. It was in Biblical days, too. That’s the way people put it who choose not to be responsible and blame everyone and everything else about their life.
We all make choices. Even not choosing is a choice. Those choices all have ramifications on our lives.
The Word talks about it clearly.
This book (The Word; The Holy Bible), is God breathed and inerrant, teaches an important lesson: we bring hardship to ourselves and others when we disobey God.
May we see the moral integrity of God that Moses proclaimed and respond by being responsible.

The similarities here are uniquely different than what they were previously, and in the beginning, relate to magnificent and elegant raiment. Such esteem is all His saints; and are clothed with Christ, they are marked by their elegance and radiantly beautiful garments.
They make the teachings of Yahweh their Saviour more pleasing in everything. Steadfast believers pay tribute to Christ, exhort the gospel, and persuade and revive sinners.
Read today’s full scripture text here.
The church compares to the grand and extending palm; during her love for Christ, and the obedience came about accordingly, are a cherished fruit of the true Vine. The King is maintained in the chambers.
Christ takes pleasure in the gatherings and commands of His people; and cherishes the fruit of His grace in them.
When applied to the church and to each faithful Christian, all this symbolizes that grace of holiness, in which they’ll be given to their divine Bridegroom.
The church’s beauty is from Christ! When we are obedient and allow the Holy Spirit to work in and through us, for His purpose, our beauty shines through. It greatly pleases Him. In doing so, we’re blessed.
Comment how you’re blessed in your obedience to Christ.
Me: Well, we know that nobody is perfect in this fleshly vessel. We all stumble, even I. However, that being said; I do my very best to be obedient to Christ’s call on my life. I stumble along the way, but, He catches me and helps me keep going. Your turn!
Yahweh was speaking to Isaiah. He may not always audibly speak to us today. But, through the Holy Spirit and His living Word, He does.
How often do you get a phone call or someone at your door and you ignore it because you don’t have time, or just don’t want to deal with it? I’ve done it! I’ll admit it! You wouldn’t know it by my social interactions, but, I’m an introvert. Actually, technically, I’m an extroverted introvert. I socialize. I then need my solitude to recharge.

However, there are some who blatantly ignore out of disobedience to Yahweh’s calling.
Obedience is tough. It’s easy in today’s society to ignore the call of Yahweh and keep going with our day to day life without His guidance & wisdom. Are you distracted with life? Are you weary? In the last line of the scripture, it tells us that when we’re disobedient we will live in pain. That’s what He offers us in our disobedience. I don’t know about you, but, I’m not a fan of living in pain. You interpret this pain whatever way you wish. But, I believe it means living in torment and trials that cause pain of all kinds. Now, that’s not to say we’ll be with any pain whatsoever, otherwise. This is talking about needless pain. Some pain is needed to grow in our faith in Yahweh.
Answer Yahweh’s call. Be obedient to His call. You won’t regret it! That is my challenge to you.

As being fully human subjects Jesus to the same as we experience, here He was praying and pleading for His life. He still prayed, “But do what You want, not what I want”.
It is not always easy to give into Yahweh. We would much rather give the orders and ask Yahweh to back up our plans. However, real praying is learning what He desires for our lives and then doing it. When we can sincerely come to Him and say, “Your will be done,” we are then able to face anything that comes.
How about you? Do you struggle with obedience to Yahweh and doing what His word tells you? I know I do. You’d be lying if you said no. As humans, we want to be the boss. It’s in our nature.
That’s not to say that were unable to be obedient. It’s simply a human struggle to follow other’s orders. It can and should be done, however. As stated before, when we do follow His orders we’ll be able to face whatever comes.
Comment a time you obeyed Yahweh and were blessed.
There’s two types of healing,
immediate and progressive. Immediate is rare. Why? Yahweh requires obedience.
Progressive healing happens frequently. Why?
In the midst of whatever physical affliction we may face, we must learn by kneeling in prayer, standing in faith, and walking in obedience.
When we’re in alignment and obedient to Yahweh prayers get answered, and people heal.
Whatever you’re facing; there’s no resolution or healing. Ask yourself, “why?”.
I’ve had my own experiences of non healing and non resolution. Once I got in alignment and became obedient, healing and resolution came.
