The Sky if falling…..

The Sky is Falling

When your contentment and peace are based on your 401K and the
things of this world, the view can at times be very dim. Just listen to those around you as the stock market makes its adjustments or terrorists drop another bomb or the weather station runs a special on disasters. or another Politicians immoral behavior is revealed, or the doctor gives you bad news, or….. Worry, anxiety, fear, unrest are just of few of the emotions you hear from those controlled by this world.

There is a way to have a different perspective on life.

Luke 12:25-31 “And which of you with taking thought can add to his stature one cubit? If ye then be not able to do that thing which is least, why take ye thought for the rest? Consider the lilies how they grow: they toil not, they spin not; and yet I say unto you, that Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these. If then God so clothe the grass, which is to day in the field, and tomorrow is cast into the oven; how much more will he clothe you, O ye of little faith? And seek not ye what ye shall eat, or what ye shall drink, neither be ye of doubtful mind. For all these things do the nations of the world seek
after: and your Father knoweth that ye have need of these things.
But rather seek ye the kingdom of God; and all these things shall be
added unto you.”

Take the following test to determine how you stack up!

Where do your priorities come from?
What is number one, two and three in your life?

1.
2.
3.

Lk 12:34 “For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.”
Fear can be a disabling emotion. So, where does fear come from?

II Tim 1:7 “For God gave us not a spirit of fearfulness; but of power and love and discipline.”

Now we have established that God wants us to live by faith and not fear it does us well to remember there is one fear that is good. It is the one that helps keep us close to our God. The same faith and fear that helped Noah complete his mission and avoid sin that we are sure caused humiliation during its development.

Heb 11:7 “By faith Noah, being warned of God concerning things not seen as yet, moved with godly fear, prepared an ark to the saving of his house; through which he condemned the world, and became heir of the
righteousness which is according to faith.”

Have a great day and remember, only the things done in the service
of the King count for eternity!!!!

CHRISTian one-liners….

James 1:22 “But be ye doers of the word, and not hearers only,
deceiving your own selves.”

For the start of your day here are some thought provokers.
With most of these you can apply scripture principles.
