Good morning ladies, Day 16 of our Fast.
“Whatever your hands find to do, do with your strength; for there is no work or planning or knowledge or wisdom in Sheol, the place where you are going.”
Ecclesiastes 9:10 MEV
We as humans can be naturally lazy when it’s come doing things. We can find all the excuses under the sun to avoid doing certain things in our life.
This is one of the tactics of the devil to try to stop us from developing our relationship with God. However, it is up to us to determine what we want.
Yes we say that we want God and to have the Holy Spirit. But having a desire is not enough. The word of God says that we need to seek Him with ALL of our hearts, might and mind. Meaning there needs to be a lot of will power, perseverance and effort.
God isn’t something cheap we find around the side of the road. The Holy Spirit is a treasure that we seek for none stop till we find.
But our flesh doesn’t like and opts to what is quick, cheap and easy which is sin, and giving up.
So just because you quit, it doesn’t make God feel pity for you. Not at all. He has giving me and you all the strength we need to fight. It is inside of us.
And only when we’ve had enough of being empty, used by the evil one, down….. and we decide to fight (making a decision), that’s when things will change.
Remember we are the ones that need God. It’s not the other way around. He says “for without me you can do nothing “.
So if you’ve stopped, thinking of stopping or haven’t started…. I say to you Arise and let’s Go.
Time to fight your battles 💪🏽💪🏽💪🏽 and seek for the treasure of God because when you find….wow. You will never be the same again.
You will need to go against your flesh and your will.
Tried and Failed
“I tried so much before to do the 21 days and I never can do it properly, it’s best for me not to start in case it’s not the same.”
