A generation losing their religion

In My Father's House

Losing_my_religion I was reading an article yesterday called, “ Losing Faith: 21 Percent Say ‘Religion Not That Important .” Apparently, America is losing her religion. In the article they mention that this apathy toward organized religion is steadily rising.

This made me think about the countless conversations I’ve had over the last few years with the 20 and 30-somethings who pretty much don’t resonate with our typical Western churchianity.

Forsaken.

Psalms  27:10 “When my father and my mother forsake me, then the LORD will take me up.”

Most of the “believers” in this generation are still holding on tightly to the ‘aprons’ of their mothers and the ‘trousers’ of their fathers… thus disallowing and hindering GOD from “taking them up”.

Have you ever seriously thought about it; that maybe the only time you can really begin to fulfill your destiny is when you get forsaken by all and cease cleaving to people (no matter how closely related)?.

Mark  15:34
And at the ninth hour Jesus cried with a loud voice, saying, Eloi, Eloi, lama sabachthani? which is, being interpreted, My God, my God, why hast thou forsaken me?

Even Jesus our Lord had to be “forsaken” here↑↑ by His Father (and taken up by The LORD; both one person) before completing His mission.

P.S: We are all “destined” to serve THE LORD GOD…thus bring glory and honour to His name. When we do this, we are on the way to fulfilling destiny.

Meditate on HIS Words and OBEY HIM!
Shalom!

YOUR CHOICE.

2 Timothy 2:20
“But in a great house there are not only vessels of gold and of silver, but also of wood and of earth; and some to honour, and some to dishonour.”
.
.
There are two different (opposing) sides on the chess board with a ‘grand master’ at its helm of affairs…. Just ONE player.

In this specific game, the ‘game pieces’ gets to choose (after being privy to the guidelines) on which side of the board they’ll love to function ~ whether the white (colored) side OR the black (colored) side…and are thus colored accordingly.
Guidelines:
white (colored) side → honorable.
black (colored) side → dishonorable.

Isaiah  45:7
I form the light, and create darkness: I make peace, and create evil: I the LORD do all these things.

Brethren, the ‘game pieces’ are You & I; the ‘chess board’ is The World, and the ‘grand master’ is GOD.
Remember; YOU WERE GIVEN CHOICES. Gen 3:22, Isaiah 7:15.

Choose wisely. Shalom!

Out of the abundance of the heart…

“Out of the abundance of the heart, the mouth speaketh…(and actions proceed forth)”

When a person’s heart is filled with wickedness and evil, such a person will always find it difficult to read “positive” meaning into any “kind” act rendered to such a one; he/she will always take one’s goodwill as evil.

Matthew  12:34
“O generation of vipers, how can ye, being evil, speak good things? for out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaketh.”

Matthew 12:35
A good man out of the good treasure of the heart bringeth forth good things: and an evil man out of the evil treasure bringeth forth evil things.

Hardships

Jeremiah  32:27 “Behold, I am the LORD, the God of all flesh: is there any thing too hard for me?”

Anytime we experience hardships in life, we’re always quick to come to a harsh conclusion about our creator – GOD
It is at this time some begin to doubt His existence, others simply rule Him out as uncaring and unfeeling…

Psalms  95:8
Harden not your heart, as in the provocation, and as in the day of temptation in the wilderness:

…But is He? Definitely not.
If we can only think deep enough, we’ll begin to realise that those hardships are part of the “molding” process to the better person that we are now.

Our survival instincts definitely would never have been this honed if not for those hardships. We also won’t have gotten this wiser and knowledgeable with age had we not undergone “hardships” at some certain stages in our lives.

So… lets not harden our hearts towards GOD when it all looks bleak but instead, seek Him and move closer more.

“Wait on the LORD: be of good courage, and he shall strengthen thine heart: wait, I say, on the LORD.” ~ Psalms  27:14

Shalom!!!
