What’s REAL anymore???
When I was a child, I spoke as a child, but then, as I became a man, then I put away childish ways and thinking. Now, this verse can apply to a man or a woman. But, how many do it? I like TV for example, but would not die without it. As a kid I just had to watch certain shows, or it seemed like my world would end. Do we do that as adults?
What is REAL? Are the things discussed in movies real? As a kid I remember thinking, “wow that’s fake.” This was when watching a show, seeing interactions with people, and many other scenarios. There were other times, I thought, “wow, that looks so real!.” There was a reason for that. It is real, and the portrayal of the fantasy does not make it any less real.
Abuse is REAL, Hatred is REAL, and so is LOVE. This is a time where we must stand for TRUTH. The only TRUTH I have ever known to be spot on 100% of the time, is the word of GOD. Does this mean that reading the word will create no problems. No, it does not. It states clearly that we will have persecution.
However, reading it, and letting God use it to heal you will eventually STOP those problems in their tracks. Many people judge us and say we are too religious. But, the fact is, we are NOT religious at all, just in LOVE with GOD.
If you were dating someone and you could see a future with them, you would talk about them a lot. I know, cause before I really fell head over heels for HIM, I did this with others. So did my spouse, but now all we want to talk about is GOD.
In the times we live in, what used to be helpful to us, is NOT in the same way. God has not changed, but we as HIS people have. Some for the good, and some, well have clothed themselves in FEAR.
I would like to propose an experiment, for 24 hours, watch your words. Not to say don’t speak, just pay attention to what is said. I am participating too, because words are powerful. The power of LIFE and DEATH is in the tongue.
Even just this morning I had to apologize to God for not choosing my words wisely. This has been a strange week, and God knows. His Grace is sufficient, and weakness has been evident from me. But, having said that, we don’t serve a God who says we are awful. We serve one who loves to hear us say we are sorry, and picks us up and loves on us again and again, as long as we are sincere.
Would love to hear your thoughts on what is REAL…
To us, the only thing that matters is GOD is REAL, and HIS LOVE is HEALING.
Trusting that He will turn it ALL around for HIS good, and the GLORY. ~
In His Grace,
My prayer this week has been for HIS heart, HIS eyes and HIS ears. He sees us differently than we see us and others. This led me to understand the judge not means not the judge from my perspective. It doesn’t mean I can’t draw a a boundary but it does mean I should look at how God is working and join in.
Interesting, looking at DEATH the middle three letters are EAT which is how it entered this world. And the middle of LIFE is IF implying that we all have a lot of possibilities inside of us.
