Leviticus 23:22

Leviticus 23:22 (NIV) “‘When you reap the harvest of your land, do not reap to the very edges of your field or gather the gleanings of your harvest. Leave them for the poor and the alien. I am the Lord your God.'”

God gives us blessings in many aspects of our lives. Money from work, food from farming and much more. Today I wanted to talk about this verse from the book of Leviticus. The intial meaning that I first think of is, this is the Lord’s blessings and his harvest. He has allowed it to grow and flourish. So, when he tells us not to be selfish then that let’s me know that there is more than enough in that harvest for my and my family’s needs. He says not to go to the edges in collections. Do not pick anything fallen from the ground, that is for the animals, or the less fortunate. God will supply! He may very well be answering a prayer through you today, a prayer that another person has asked. I’m sure some of the less fortunate people were praying to God for food for survival, and he has commanded the fortunate to leave the edges or the crops uncollected! What an amazing God, to use our blessings for blessing even more people! Now think about your life today, maybe it’s not money that God has blessed you with. But I can assure you that you do have a gift, use that gift to bless someone today, use it everyday! Maybe it helps you make a living remember do collect the edges of your field, don’t be selfish, but share. May God bless you and you bless others!

Missing Piece

We have all had our hearts broken at one point or another in our life, if you haven’t experienced this yet then I hope you never have to. The thing to remember is that we are not perfect how we are, but Jesus does want us as we are. He wants to transform us into the person that we are meant to be. Sometimes the way for him to get to our heart is for a situation to shatter our hearts. This could be losing a job, a friend, a loved one. Just to list a few. We are very caught up in looking for the next good feeling, what can I do to get that feeling? Maybe the reason that we look for those things has the same denominator…our missing piece of our heart. God fills our heart and completes us. Makes us whole if you will. Maybe what we have been chasing our whole lives hasn’t been the promotion, the spouse, the money, the high, but maybe just maybe he has been waiting right next to us our entire life…

Brief Bondage

Do you feel the chains holding you down in life? Does it seem like your past just won’t let you go? Remember in Exodus, that the Israelites were slaves to the Egyptians. Moses came in to the picture. He wasn’t good with words, but he did have something that noone else did have, that was faith to listen and do EXACTLY what God instructed. He led the Israelites out of Egypt, many questioned him serval times when they looked and saw little food or water. They would say, ” why have you led us out here to die? ” He would pray to the Lord and the Lord would bless them with their needs. Moses didn’t waiver in his faith. He truly led his life by faith and not by sight. Remember, we have chains that hold us back and down on this Earth. God sent us Jesus. He is the key to the chains, the key to the gate to the kingdom of heaven! Pray for the release of the chains, for the true freedom from the sins in your life. He will answer, I promise, he has promised!

Going through a hard time?

I will share with you the story of Job, this man was very wealthy and had a big family. He lost it all, his kids died, he lost his wealth, but he didn’t lose his faith and trust in God. For that faith, God rewarded Job with double the wealth and family. The moral of Job’s story is regardless of what we face we shall live by faith not by sight. Do not let today’s troubles keep your mind from the eternal blessings that God had in store as your reward for your faith. May God bless you and your family for generations to come!

John 16:33

John 16:33 (NIV)  “I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world.”

No matter what is in front of you in your life right now, anything you are facing. God shows us that we will have thought in this world, that is because, we are not in heaven. Heaven is where everything will be PERFECT. God does let us have peace in the fact that he loves us and tells us he has already overcome the world, just know that thing in your mind that is stressing you out and keeping you awake late at night, God knows about and already has the result in hand. He will deliver you on the other side. Take heart and know he is more powerful than anything we will ever face, and he is on your side!

Philippians 1:6

Philippians 1:6 (NIV)  being confident of this, that he who began a good work in you will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus.

Before you are born God knows you, he has a plan for you and your life. We may not always use the time he gives us in the wisest ways, but he loves us regardless. I know some people are great teachers, some great artists, and athletes. The most amazing gift I have gotten to witness is the person that is a great LISTENER. They are being used by God to help us that aren’t quite as spiritually mature. Sometimes we need to vent to a person to get a feeling that someone is listening…do you ever get that feeling? Have you ever done that? Spoke with God and then go speak to a person because you felt like maybe God isn’t listening or giving you the imediate response you crave? I know I have, but tying back to the scripture is that if you have ever had that first part of the conversation where you speak to God then he has started working on you and growing you spiritually. He will not give up no matter how many times we do. Remember that God loves you, refer to John 3:16 (NIV)  “For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son,  that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.

Challenges

I have not been posting the last little while. I appreciate your support. I have had some personal challenges that have kept me from posting. I have it on my heart to post tonight. God has given me such a blessing of a life. If you look at your life as a whole, i’m sure you will agree you have a blessed life as well.

We do however face challenges in our life, some harder to overcome than others. The common solution for our challenges is Jesus! If we look how good we have it instead of at the size of the challenge we will be grateful and the thing to be most grateful about is that Jesus died for us and God is with us and is the king of Kings and has our lives planned out for us!
