Loan To God

6 Jul

God’s Word:  Proverbs 19:17-29

God’s Message to Me:

Showing mercy to the needy is like giving a loan to Me.  And I pay back those loans in full! When you stifle the “what’s in it for me” attitude and think simply about the person in need, you become my right hand helper.  And believe me, those kind of helpers are few and far between now days.

Who are the needy in your life?  If you have a spouse then you are their help-meet.  They need your help, encouragement and support.  If you have children at home still, on loan from Me, I am depending upon you to train them up in the way they should go.  Training includes discipline for if you indulge them you destroy them.  Who in your extended family has needs that you can meet—your neighborhood—at work—or in your community.

You can be sure that I always pay My loans in full, even with the cup heaping up and overflowing.  Give and you shall be given. Forgive and you shall be forgiven.  Share and you will have plenty.  As you sow, so shall you reap.  This is living in the “fear of God” and this is the highest plane of living—a full life and serene—where everyone wishes to live.  But few are willing to pay the price of giving up themselves for the sake of others.  Wisdom calls—will you answer?

God’s Question to Me:  Will you take off your “what’s in it for me” glasses and reach out to the needs of others as giving a loan to Me?

God’s Promise to Me:  As you sow so shall you reap!

My Song to God:   Seek Ye First

Seek ye first the kingdom of God
And His righteousness
And all these things shall be added unto you
Allelu, alleluia

Man does not live by bread alone
But by every word
That proceeds from the mouth of God
Allelu, alleluia

Ask and it shall be given unto you
Seek and ye shall find
Knock and the door shall be opened unto you
Allelu, alleluia

Seek ye first the kingdom of God
And His righteousness
And all these things shall be added unto you
Allelu, alleluia

Man does not live by bread alone
But by every word
That proceeds from the mouth of God
Allelu, alleluia
