We so often live to enjoy the things in life instead of the life giver. Did we know that God is the giver of all these things we enjoy, so why aren't we enjoying God? How much more enjoyable is our God than these things? How much more is the source so pure, fresh and abundant. So how do we enjoy God everyday?
Write down your goals, dreams and ambitions!
(You know what they are! :))
I discovered this when I saw that my eating at night was no good, not because it's wrong to eat at night, but because my goals and ambitions did not match my well-being. Allow me to explain. My goal and ambition to eat at night came from my fear of tomorrow, that I would go hungry in the morning, or not have enough energy to run the way i wanted to. Today, like many times before, I awoke refreshed and then I realized that it is better to trust God with a little or even nothing than it is to be fearful of our circumstances and it act out of that! My vice is to eat at night out of fear of what tomorrow may bring. It's not the act of eating at night that is evil. It's out of what goal and ambition. If I choose to eat out of grace, than even if it is at 12AM, God can use it to show His grace to others. Why do I mention all of this? For us to revise our goals and ambitions and where they truly come from.
These things, the good and pleasantries of life [you have to trust what God put inside of you] is that Everything comes from the motives and ambitions of men. If the goal and ambition of someone is truth, then they can not miss Jesus. If the goals of man are to find the true way, then how can they miss God? If their goal and ambition is life, the Father knows where to find a man; He is not limited in resources as we think He is. God owns all things. God can bring anything out of anything to anything at anytime. Take Saul whom Christians began to know as Paul in the Bible. His goal was he really wanted to know God. He is the first example that God knows how to find those who really want to meet Christ. Remember this: That God is great and God is good in a way you have never imagined! Again, God is more good than we could ever dream or even imagine. He is good in an extremely unordinary, extraordinary, gracious and passionate way!
Now, we have people who walk this earth with very great dogmatic ambitions. They think that living in a way that looks good to all Christians is what God wants and will be enough for them. They deny God in many ways unimaginable everyday because their goals do not match what God put in their hearts to begin with to accomplish. Sometimes our goals are not as polished as the god of this world wants us to think and our God given dreams will conflict with those gods, images and empty ambitions we are trying in order to please these false gods on this earth. Dogma is a beast. I don't use the word religion or even "the system" because we are supposed to be obedient to authorities as much as it is in our power to do so. But dogma has created an image of life that if we do not pursue this, we will be hated or disliked by those whose dreams and ambitions are to look like a Christian, rather than just simply being a Christian and letting your works speak for themself. If we are Christians, nothing needs explained so that to be said in a way that hasn't already been shown. God takes care of the animals, how much more will he bring salvation to those who seek it with their whole heart, ESPECIALLY AFTER SEEING OUR GOOD DEEDS AND AUTOMATICALLY GIVE GLORY TO GOD!? Listen and fear God. You may have goals to build a bakery. Do so, little by little. You may have dreams to be a dentist, a fireman, a dancer, a singer. Do it with the fear (meaning the great respect) of God.
Fix your goals and dreams and God will fix your life. Fix your ambition on worshiping Jesus and God will fix your circumstance. No longer worship what you see; your circumstances. Listen, that is the humor of God. He wants you do believe He can use you with just what you have now! Think about it! And accept it! To everyone who reads this article: Know that you have tremendous goals: Goals to build a garden, get married, build a business, show unordinary good kindness, God is with you. Don't try to hold back to please others or from fear of others. No! Just give kindness along the way. God will do the rest for it is His pleasure to do so as you enjoy everything God has for you. Don't be afraid! Don't be afraid to enjoy everything God has given for you to enjoy, and trust God.
If you'd like to accept Jesus into your life today, pray this simple prayer of God's love and grace today: Lord Jesus, I thank you for dying for all my sin; now Lord I invite you into my heart. Come and be my everything today and forever. Forgive my sin as I make You and you alone Lord in my life. Amen. Now read the book of God's love in the Bible: The book of John chapters 1-21. God promises He will guide your life. Pray and ask God to bring the right people into your life. God will guide you to the right church full of people who love His words in the Bible. Our God is so faithful. God bless you today.
