Who, what are you seeking   Leave a comment

No world (satan), Jesus is my Provider.

Matthew 16:26; For what is a man profited, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul? or what shall a man give in exchange for his soul?

Mark 10:24; And the disciples were astonished at his words. But Jesus answereth again, and saith unto them, Children, how hard is it for them that TRUST in riches to enter into the kingdom of God!

When we seek the riches of this world, we lose sight of the real riches that come from God. His riches are His love, grace, mercy, faith, patience… When we seek ONLY Him He provides. Whatever we desire or need He will give. It please God. But it doesn’t please Him when we seek riches. The Bible says faith in Him pleases Him. Just because you receive gain doesn’t mean it’s a blessing from God. The world has a whole mess of folks who has gains. The devil knows how to send gain to deceive us. Discern everything and everybody. I’ve turn down certain things and opportunities that would have given me prosperous gain because God knew the source wasn’t from Him but from the devil. Sadly, I was criticized for it. But my real source comes from my Daddy, Abba Father. Seek Him first, and His righteousness and all these things shall be added to you. If you are seeking riches, then you are losing your soul. I’m not against money. There isn’t anything wrong with having money unless it was gotten unrighteously. Also, I’m not against or envious/jealous of anyone who has gains. The best way to illustrate what I’m saying is in 1 Timothy 6:17-18. My focus isn’t on money. When it was, I was lost and dying spiritually. But when I began to seek God first, my life changed for the better. I have peace because anything I need is provided for. I have greater riches this world/satan cannot give me. When I sit back and think about it, I am truly blessed. Let’s put our trust in God and not riches.

Luke 16:13; No servant can serve two masters: for either he will hate the one, and love the other; or else he will hold to the one, and despise the other. Ye cannot serve God and mammon (wealth, riches).

Romans 11:12; Now if the fall of them be the riches of the world, and the diminishing of them the riches of the Gentiles; how much more their fulness?

1 Timothy 6:17-18; Charge them that are rich in this world, that they be not highminded, nor trust in uncertain riches, but in the living God, who giveth us richly all things to enjoy; That they do good, that they be rich in good works, ready to distribute, willing to communicate;

1 Timothy 6:5-11; Perverse disputings of men of corrupt minds, and destitute of the truth, SUPPOSING that gain is godliness: from such withdraw thyself. But godliness with contentment (a state of happiness and satisfaction) is great gain. For we brought nothing into this world, and it is certain we can carry nothing out. And having food and raiment let us be therewith content. But they that will be rich fall into temptation and a snare, and into many foolish and hurtful lusts, which drown men in destruction and perdition. For the love of money is the root of all evil: which while some coveted after, they have erred from the faith, and pierced themselves through with many sorrows. But thou, O man of God, flee these things; and follow after righteousness, godliness, faith, love, patience, meekness.
