Fervent Obedience

1 Peter 4:8 King James Version (KJV)

And above all things have fervent charity among yourselves: for charity shall cover the multitude of sins.

1 Peter 1:22 King James Version (KJV)

22 Seeing ye have purified your souls in obeying the truth through the Spirit unto unfeigned love of the brethren, see that ye love one another with a pure heart fervently:

To do fervent prayer or bible reading or obedience to God is to do it all the time in heaviness being extremely passionate about that what you do

God wants us to be fervent right in everything we do in obedience to him

So next time you go to do something in obedience and love to him do it fervently

God Why Is This Happening

We often find ourselves asking the question of why god or what did I do or even God Why is this happening to me what have I done wrong against you for this to be happening

Truth is not everything that we go through is happening by God or has anything to do with him

Sometimes what we go through reflects by a choice and action that we made

Other times evil boasts by satan putting a hurtle in our path of direction

But much of the times God is testing you to see if you allow him in your life and allow him to strengthen and guide you

Much of the other times God is putting ways in our paths to teach us how to better ourselves and serve him more in obedience with him

So the answer to those questions of why is because he loves us and wants us to better understand how to be obedient to him in all ways

Behold, I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears My voice and opens the door, I will come in to him and dine with him, and he with Me

In all things we do God wants to come in and take part in it with us he doesn’t want us going through our trials and temptations alone he wants to guide us teach us and lead us in the perfect way he sees for us

But we have to hear his voice and listen and truly focus on what he wants of us or we’ll find ourselves asking why god or what did I do or even God Why is this happening to me what have I done wrong against you for this to be happening

There’s days when we feel like giving up

There are days when we feel like we can’t go on

That life is too complex and tearing us down

—“I would be lying if I said there weren’t days where I wanted to give up, but the Lord constantly in big words say “ Let me be your strength”

He wants us to be strong in him letting him be our strength

He loves us unconditionally and only wants what he knows is best for us he reminds us every hour of everyday of his love for us

Our Stronghold

When we falter and fail

We try to climb higher than we are

Yet we still feel low and like we’re not going anywhere

Till someone falls further than us and we keep them from falling down

Christ won’t let us down or fall

He is our stronghold foundation and pedestal

He will keep us held high for our light to shine and all to see

Jesus love is the key

He keeps us from falling down
