Having had a Spiritual Awakening!
Over the past couple of days I have been blessed in the City of Melbourne as I attended ‘Awakening Australia 2018.’ Since Friday I have been running in to a number of people from different stages of my spiritual walk I haven’t seen or spoken to from sometime. It made me realise how much God has done in and thriugh my life a result of my relationship with Him and with others who have entered my life.
Building up to this event every message I heard, every piece of scripture has been pointed to the subject of ‘Understanding my value to God and living according to how much He values Archie.’ On Friday night at ‘Awakening Australia’ at ‘Marvel Statdium’ I listened to ‘Tod White’ talk about the same subject and the reponsibilities that come with it. God sees everything, He hears everything, He knows our every thought, feeling and knows before we act or react to them how we are going to react. And, He holds us accountable for our actions and reactions.
From ‘Awakening Australia’ what I am taking away is the words of a chorus (not even sung at awakening)
and the song STAND UP STAND UP FOR JESUS
Today I also want to share Living Life Reflection #306. Which says:
Romans 12:3 God’s grace has been given to me. So here is what I say to every one of you. Don’t think of yourself more highly than you should. Be reasonable when you think about yourself. Keep in mind the amount of faith God has given you.
We are valuable to God but how much do we value ourselves? What is your opinion of you? How much faith do you have that you are going to succeed in recovery?
All questions I have asked myself over the years. When I first started writing (10 years ago) my wife asked me “What have you got to say that people would want to listen to?” A couple of months ago she said to me “I hope you have written all this stuff down (My experiences) because someday it will help someone.” My value is based on what God thinks of me, not others.
- What is your value based on?
- Are uou willing to Stand Up and take your place in this new life of faith and help God to make a difference in the lives of others?
IF YOU WANT TO MAKE A DIFFERENCE YOU HAVE TO GET INVOLVED!
