Faith, Love, The Word

This year I have told God that I want to see things happen in my life. I want to see him work through me. I have asked him to open the eyes of my understanding. To show me, my own shortcomings. What I truly need to pluck out of my own life. This past weekend I believe he truly started showing me some things.

It is so easy to look at others and see what you think they need to change. When you have to look at your own heart, and recognize where you need to change, that is when things get real. They get real, real fast. That's ok though. I want to be the most excellent person I can be. I know that I will never be perfect, but I can sure try to be the best person I can be. I believe that starts with me though. I don't want to be stagnant. I don't want to keep beating around the same bush. I don't want to continue to go around the same mountain. I want growth. Just as a child that is growing, there are growing pains. Those pains include having a heart check. Recognizing where your heart has been. I believe my heart has been striving for more light from him. I think I just had to really get to a place where I needed Him. By golly, that is what I've been telling Him. I need His way, which means I need His word, which means I need to accept His correction.

As I was saying, I believe my heart has been wanting and desiring more of Him. If I can get to the point with who ever is reading this, anyone can want something. People can want to get in shape, be healthier, have a better job, be more intelligent in the job they have at the moment, have a better relationship with their spouse or friend. Until they actually make an effort, though, there will be no change in those areas. Anyone that has read the scripture, knows that God has a plan for each and everyone of us. He has a really good one. A plan for the better, not for the worse. He has all of it ready for us, but we have to be willing to do something.

One thing that comes to mind at this moment is using our Armor of God. All of them are important, but the two piece I keep thinking of is The Shield of Faith and the Sword. The sword is God's word. It is like a double edge sword. It cuts open and brings to light everything. It reveals to us the wisdom of God. It is a defense mechanism for us. The Shield is also a defense mechanism. If you notice a shield and a sword are two items the soldier holds up. They put them out in front of them and uses them against the enemy. They pretty much work hand and hand. You pick up the sword/the word and use it. As you read the word and learn who God is, and what He has for you, you put it into action by believing in it. Acting on it. You are putting up your shield when you do this. You are saying that I don't care what I see. I am going to believe God. He is my defense mechanism. There is one thing I want to point out. One thing that keeps stirring up inside of me over and over. The concept of love. The scripture says in 1 Corinthians 13 this, "If I have faith to move mountains, and do not love, I do not have anything." Love is like the fuel for faith. It is the oil for faith. It makes it operate right. Makes it operate smoothly. I allows God to move freely in your life. There is a scripture that I came across today. It says this. "But above all these things put on love, which is the bond of perfection." Colossians 3:14 It says put on. Like it is a garment. Put it on with the rest of the armor of God.

I told you that I asked God to open the eyes of my understanding. I'm about to write something that may have some of my Christian brothers and sisters in a frenzy. My husband and me started watching a new series. It is called The Vampire Diaries. Yes I said vampires. There is something that was brought up that made me think of the holy spirit and what I am talking about when I say open the eyes of my understanding. In order for one of the vampires to enter a house hold they have to verbally be invited. They literally have to stand at the door, until the owner of the household says come on in. That's the way it is with God and the holy spirit. You have to first ask Jesus into your heart. Then the Holy Spirit comes to live inside of you. You still continually change you mind will and emotions after that. You have to see what God says about these things. God actually says in His Word, "Ask and you shall recieve." Ask God to show you areas in your life. Ask him to open up the eyes of your understand.

Well after I asked God this not to long ago, He started pointing out an area that is tied to faith. That is love, which I wrote above. Love is what brings His work to perfection in your life. Love is the most important concept above all. Here I have been trying to be miss perfect forever now. But love is what makes everything perfect.

Gods word, Faith, and love. That is what this post was about. I actually just wrote a post on Love in Faith. I know they may almost be the same. This is so stirring inside of me. If you would like visit the most recent post here.
