I AM in all you do, you can’t extricate Me. I have a function in every season of your life.
Think on that.
“-If a man loves me, he will keep my word, and my Father will love him, and we will come to him and make our home with him.” John 14:23
“Every good endowment and every perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of lights with whom there is no variation or shadow due to change.” James 1:17
Man thinks on Me as only good and not evil; I AM good, but though I don’t create evil in your life, I amplify any evil in your heart for I AM good. Like oil and water the two will separate and you must choose.
“Let no one say when he is tempted, “I am tempted by God”; for God cannot be tempted with evil and he himself tempts no one; but each person is tempted when he is lured and enticed by his own desire. Then desire when it has conceived gives birth to sin; and sin when it is full-grown brings forth death.” James 1:13-15
Like water and oil is shaken to combine, it may seem as though it works for a time, but this is an illusion that soon separates.
And like oil and water, evil separates from Me.
“Because sentence against an evil deed is not executed speedily, the heart of the sons of men is fully set to do evil. Though a sinner does evil a hundred times and prolongs his life, yet I know that it will be well with those who fear God, because they fear before him; but it will not be well with the wicked, neither will he prolong his days like a shadow, because he does not fear before God.” Ecclesiastes 8:11-13
An evil thought divides a heart if allowed to remain.
Friends go separate ways. Families split apart–You must not start!
“From the same mouth come blessing and cursing. My brethren, this ought not to be so.” James 3:10
Thoughts must remain, steadfast and pure, for your footing to be sure.
“Know this, my beloved brethren. Let every man be quick to hear, slow to speak, slow to anger, for the anger of man does not work the righteousness of God. Therefore put away all filthiness and rank growth of wickedness and receive with meekness the implanted word, which is able to save your souls.” James 1:19-21
It all begins in the mind.
“For though we live in the world we are not carrying on a worldly war, for the weapons of our warfare are not worldly but have divine power to destroy strongholds. We destroy arguments and every proud obstacle to the knowledge of God, and take every thought captive to obey Christ, being ready to punish every disobedience, when your obedience is complete.” II Corinthians 10:5-6
Think on these things.
Keep your mind pure.
“So if there is any encouragement in Christ, any incentive of love, any participation in the Spirit, any affection and sympathy, complete my joy by being of the same mind, having the same love, being in full accord and of one mind.
Do nothing from selfishness or conceit, but in humility count others better than yourselves. Let each of you look not only to his own interests, but also to the interests of others.” Philippians 2:1-4
“The end of the matter; all has been heard. Fear God, and keep his commandments; for this is the whole duty of man. For God will bring every deed into judgment, with every secret thing, whether good or evil.” Ecclesiastes 12:13-14
