Psalm 103:3 He fills my life with good things! My youth is renewed. TLB
Just like old coffee that turns musty and leaves unsightly rings in a coffee cup, so can our relationship with the Lord become old and crusty if we don’t take care of the relationship.
I've been thinking about my stages of faith.
When you first receive the gift of the Holy Spirit, well, the high can make you fly!
There’s no drug that can transform your life like the power of Jesus Christ!
I had insatiable thirst for knowledge. I got out of my comfort zone in big ways and started doing all kinds of “ministries” until the LORD said, “Stop.” I heard that stop in a big way.
I had to stop doing the things I thought He wanted me to do and start doing things for and with Him. There’s a huge difference in serving God versus serving for God. In my enthusiasm, I got tangled up in things that were good and great for the Kingdom – but they weren’t in God’s plan for me.
I stopped “cleaning” my coffee cup because I was on auto-pilot doing my own things for God instead of with God. I’d rinse my cup, but never took time to clean it out and disinfect it from the germs that grow from neglect.
|Fave cup is a gift from dear co-worker friend TP.|
The result is a focused life – it’s not what I expected – but it makes me effective in the things God has planned for me.
How’s your cup?
