A little salt…

Matthew 5:13 “Ye are the salt of the earth: but if the salt have lost his savour, wherewith shall it be salted? it is thenceforth good for nothing, but to be cast out, and to be trodden under foot of men.”

Don’t give up on who God made you to be. Don’t stop following his commandants. There are many past struggles and present struggles that seem to never rest but Jesus said that he will give us rest if we are willing to give all that is hindering us from his best to him. Just lay it at his feet; it is easy said than done but it is possible because with God all things are possible. Be the salt of the earth that God made you to be, to nurture others, to comfort those that need comfort, to try to live a holy life. This is what God asks of us, to love one another as he loves us. John 15:12 “This is my commandment, That ye love one another, as I have loved you.”

There are people in this life and even in our personal lives that make life a bit strenuous and a bit difficult to do that, but it doesn’t matter because Jesus died for you and for the whole world and he rose up on the third day because God loves us. We can also be difficult to ourselves, become our own struggle and our own enemy. But what we need to put within us, is the word of God because it is in his word that tells us his promises. All we need to do is open our hearts to the Lord every day of the week, not just on Sunday but every morning, afternoon and night. We need to understand that it is not our world, we are not in control but God is in control in all things regardless of how it looks out there. No matter how it looks even in our own world; God is always there and he has and never will leave us because he said so himself. Deuteronomy 31:6 “Be strong and of a good courage, fear not, nor be afraid of them: for the LORD thy God, he it is that doth go with thee; he will not fail thee, nor forsake thee.”

I guess what I’m saying is TRUST in the Lord. God loves you and to rely on only him is the best thing anyone can ever do because he will never let you down. Money, gold, silver, land, universe, us, he made them all and all belongs to God. He is the Almighty God, the only one, the only true pure love, he is perfect and the only one to guide us to our destiny that he made especially for us only. But we need to completely pick up the cross and follow him daily to find out what that destiny is. Luke 9:23 “And he said to them all, If any man will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross daily, and follow me.” 1 Corinthians 2:9 “Eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered unto the heart of man, the things which God hath prepared for them that love Him.”

Yes there will be tests but it is only to refine us. It is only for the best for us because that is what God wants for us, the best for us as his children. Yes it can be hard and scary but God’s word says 1 John 4:4 “Ye are of God, little children, and have overcome them: because greater is he that is in you, than he that is in the world.”  Also just like the song sung by Yolanda Adams named I’m Gonna Be Ready  (chorus)

Sight beyond what I see
You know what’s best for me
Prepare my mind, prepare my heart
For whatever comes, I’m gone’ be ready

Strength to pass any test
I feel like I’m so blessed
With you in control, I can’t go wrong
‘Cause I always know, I’m gonna be ready

Be ready because Jesus Lord is to return again. We don’t know when but we know it is going to be because his word says so. Matthew 16:27, Matthew 24:30-31, Matthew 24:37-39. Matthew 25:13 “Therefore keep watch, because you do not know the day or the hour.

Amen!
