Life is a such a competition especially here in the U.S. Everybody is trying to out do each other, trying to “keep up with the Jones’ and them”, or be the Jones; but the thing is what in life are we competing for? what is the prize , the end result? To able to say that you did better than somebody else. And what defines better? I know one thing, whatever we (people) are trying to compete for is not what God wants us to compete for. We are supposed to be competing for the Kingdom of Heaven, our ultimate treasure.
(1 Corinthians 9:24-25) 24 Do you not know that those who run in a race all run, but one receives the prize? Run in such a way that you may obtain it. 25 And everyone who competes for the prize is temperate in all things. Now they do it to obtain a perishable crown, but we for an imperishable crown.
(Mark 8:36) 36 For what will it profit a man if he gains the whole world, and loses his own soul?
About 3 weeks ago I attended a prayer meeting and we discussed various things. As we sat and discussed something was said that triggered a thought, a vision in my mind. The longer I sat and listened onto the discussion the more the images start to become clear to me and I gained an understanding. I had this great urge to share it with my fellow Brothers and Sisters in Christ so I got up from my seat, pick up the chalk and drew. I began to explain the drawings from my inderstanding and sat down. The sooner I sat down I got back up and drew the last part of the drawing. The picture starts with the middle image then the one to the right and then the final drawing on the left. Now at this point of having the picture of the drawings I felt needed to make the images much more clearer and share them with everyone else. So here is a powerpoint of what I drew in the spirit.
So I was just laying in my bed and realized I gain confirmation on something that I wrote about a year ago. I’ve realize that I have the gift of discernment. I’m very thankful for all the gifts that God has and will continue to give me, but one thing as I was mentioning to God as I was thanking Him is that though I have these gifts, I don’t want to get prideful because of what I have been blessed with. I just want to be His Child and no longer live by worldly standards, but Heavenly standards. Aaaaah!!!!!!
Oh my goodness! This is really moving my spirit. This is why I’ve been making the effort to walk more and more in the Holy Spirit.
(1 John 2:15-17) 15 Do not love the world or the things in the world. If anyone loves the world, the love of the Father is not in him. 16 For all that is in the world—the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life—is not of the Father but is of the world. 17 And the world is passing away, and the lust of it; but he who does the will of God abides forever.
The only perfect thing in this world in the perfect will of God.
(Psalm 138:8) 8 The Lord will perfect that which concerns me; Your mercy, O Lord, endures forever; Do not forsake the works of Your hands.
