Today Reminder - 13 December 2011

My prayer for you for today is that you will strive to please God and seek His praise above the praise of man. In Jesus Name.

Romans 2:29
No, a true Jew is one whose heart is right with God. And true circumcision is not merely obeying the letter of the law; rather, it is a change of heart produced by God's Spirit. And a person with a changed heart seeks praise from God, not from people.

In life there are many pitfalls. It is interesting how easily we are angered by people and how easy it is to hurt somebody. It almost seems that in the world people have lost respect for each other and we find it much easier to protect ourselves and our feelings by hurting those around us, whether it is physically or emotionally. Our hearts have become cold and in the process we have lost the true meaning of love. We condemn and hate and seek fault in everyone and everything. We have become the monster. Do you think Jesus had it easier? He was constantly rejected and mocked. The church leaders questioned everything He said and did. He was captured, beaten and crucified because people of that time did not agree with what He did. He was innocent and yet condemned, and still He cared for them. You see He never looked for His own glory but merely God’s glory and that is why people will always find something wrong in you. A changed heart seeks praise from God, not from people. We will never find peace if we strive to impress people, if we live only for ourselves. We are here for His glory because He gave us life and freedom. So today let us seek praise from God in everything we do. Let God be glorified in our weaknesses and in our strengths.

To God be all the glory.

Have a great day friend of Jesus. You remain in my prayers.
