NO MIDDLE MEN

Where do you stand with God? Are you firmly in his camp and his loyal soldier? Or are you somewhere out there sitting on the fence not truly dedicated to your task of serving him and serving his kingdom? Are you a Christian in name only? Something to think about.
 
We are either for God or we are against God. We are not to be a Sunday Christian or a fox hole Christian. God wants our total allegiance. You must not worship other gods it says in scripture. (See Exodus 20:3) Do not call on him just when you need something. Talk to God all the time. He is your friend. If you have earthly friends you want to hang out with them. God is the ultimate friend and he wants to hang out with you too.
 
Deuteronomy 6:5 says we are to "Love him with all our heart." Not part of it but all of it. Do you truly love Jesus? Or do you just call on him when something is going wrong or take him off the shelf at Easter and Christmas because it is the right thing to do?
 
And in loving him do you truly put him first and want to serve him? Examine your heart on this one. In Revelation 3:16 it says' Be either hot or cold  but because you are lukewarm I will spit you out of my mouth."  So are you lukewarm for God? Think of lukewarm food. If we were to get lukewarm food in a restaurant we would demand it be sent back and bring back a plate of hot food. Lukewarm is just not appealing. No one wants lukewarm bathwater or lukewarm coffee. Lukewarm just does not cut it.
 
Do not cry out to God just in trouble and then expect him to be a genie in a bottle. He is your 24/7 God and is there for you in times of joy and in times of sadness. He is your round the clock repair service for broken hearts, wounded spirits, and any condition you have. He is Almighty, Bondage breaker, Counselor, Deliver, Eternal, Forever, Great, Highest, Indescribable, Justified, King, Never tiring, Omnipotent, Powerful, Radiant,Supreme, Thoughtful, Unending, Victorious,and Wonderful. Start today and make Jesus Lord of your life and Lord of your day.
 
Proverbs 2:1-6 says " My son, if you accept my words and store up my commands within you, turning your ear to wisdom
and applying your heart to understanding— indeed, if you call out for insight and cry aloud for understanding, and if you look for it as for silver and search for it as for hidden treasure, then you will understand the fear of the LORD and find the knowledge of God. For the LORD gives wisdom; from his mouth come knowledge and understanding."
 
Make your schedule and allow time for a 'coffee date' with God. He is your forever friend.
 
PRAYER: Lord forgive me for when I put you on the shelf. I want to spend more time with you. Give me the ability to discipline myself to get into your word and study it. You are my best friend Lord so help me act like it and spend time with you. I am sorry Lord that I have not wanted to hang out with you. I will do better. In Jesus Name. Amen.
