Heavenly Things

We need to keep our minds on Heavenly things for Romans  8:6 says, “For to be carnally minded is death; but to be spiritually minded is life and peace.”  We should do our best to follow God and not be influenced by our sinful nature.  Our minds can be weak and sinful but God has great plans for us so we should not follow our sinful flesh but obey the Holy Spirit.  In Jeremiah 29:11 God declares that He knows the plans he has for us, God says that He plans to prosper us.  Which means that God plans for us to do well and make the most out of our lives.  Oftentimes we are hindered from God by our sin.  Sin separates us from God but it is Jesus Christ that connects us to the grace of God.  God has promised that he will supply all of our needs according to His riches as stated in Philippines 4:9, “God shall supply all your needs according to his riches in glory by Christ Jesus.”  This means that whatever we ask in faith we will receive.  Does this mean that if we ask for a new car we will receive it?  No, not necessarily. God expects us to use wise judgement in our asking.  God wants us to lift up our needs to Him in prayer and not necessary materialistic needs but needs of the heart.  God desires to have a personal relationship with each and everyone of us. God has offered to give us what we need to maintain that relationship with Him.  For instance if God asks us to preach God will help by giving us the skills to preach, if God asks us to be a missionary He will help by supplying us with our needs if we go to Him in prayer.   We should do all things giving thanks to the Lord Jesus and giving Him the glory and believing His promises.  Romans 4:21 says, “what he had promised, he was also able to perform.”  So this means that God will stick to His promises meaning that He will never act outside of His character.  Jesus will always stick to His word and keep His promises.  God is always faithful even when we are not God remains faithful according to 2 Timothy 2:13, “If we believe not, yet he abideth faithful: he cannot deny himself.”  Seeing that God remains faithful even when we are not is ultimate proof of the love of God.  No matter how we behave we are still God’s children and He loves us very much and cares deeply about each and every one of us, He is a good God and desires the best for us in our lives. Praise God. Amen
