Forsake The World

I speak the Truth as the Spirit of the Lord reveals, uncovers and raises the standard. It may be a surprise, but it's worth your time to peruse here to discover that God is still speaking today to the Church. His voice is loud and clear through the Scriptures and at His will using the prophetic gifts.

Forsake the world and what it’s offering and the enemy’s empty lies. Not all are to be wealthy, but we are all given a basket of blessings—and some have dump trucks of such riches. Nevertheless, be a good steward of whatever you have in your basket which God has placed in your hands. Find those who are less fortunate than yourself and give to the poor, destitute and orphaned.

Yea, I know what you have need of and the birds of the air they care for nothing. Seek first my righteousness and all these things will be added to you.

Don’t be caught up with riches in the earth. They lose value quickly, and the thief comes to steal. Bury that desire to be a millionaire and a goal-setter and start with the simple -- being a good steward of all the Lord has placed in your hands.

The pendulum is swinging, and there are those, even Believers that are charged with success to include goal-setting for their future. Use wisdom and seek the Lord to recognize if He’s amid those plans or is He the very foundation that you build upon. No matter the outcome of your search it’s not too late for a mid-course correction.

And again I say to you, it is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than for a rich man to enter the kingdom of God.” Matthew 19:24

“Do not lay up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moth and rust destroy and where thieves break in and steal; but lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust destroys and where thieves do not break in and steal. For where your treasure is, there your heart will be alsoMatthew 6:19-21 Lay Up Treasures in Heaven

“Therefore do not be like them. For your Father knows the things you have need of before you ask Him. In this manner, therefore, pray:
Our Father in heaven, 
Hallowed be Your name. 
Your kingdom come. 
Your will be done 
On earth as it is in heaven. 
Give us this day our daily bread. 
And forgive us our debts, 
As we forgive our debtors. 
And do not lead us into temptation, 
But deliver us from the evil one. 
For Yours is the kingdom and the power and the glory forever. Amen. 
Matthew 6:8-13 The Lord's Prayer

“Therefore I say to you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or what you will drink; nor about your body, what you will put on. Is not life more than food and the body more than clothing? Look at the birds of the air, for they neither sow nor reap nor gather into barns; yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not of more value than they? Which of you by worrying can add one cubit to his stature? 

“So why do you worry about clothing? Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow: they neither toil nor spin; and yet I say to you that even Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these. Now if God so clothes the grass of the field, which today is, and tomorrow is thrown into the oven, will He not much more clothe you, O you of little faith?

“Therefore do not worry, saying, ‘What shall we eat?’ or ‘What shall we drink?’ or ‘What shall we wear?’ For after all these things the Gentiles seek. For your heavenly Father knows that you need all these things. But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added to you. Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about its own things. Sufficient for the day is its own trouble. Matthew 6:25-34 Do Not Worry  

Now great multitudes went with Him. And He turned and said to them,“If anyone comes to Me and does not hate his father and mother, wife and children, brothers and sisters, yes, and his own life also, he cannot be My disciple. And whoever does not bear his cross and come after Me cannot be My disciple. For which of you, intending to build a tower, does not sit down first and count the cost, whether he has enough to finish it— lest, after he has laid the foundation, and is not able to finish, all who see it begin to mock him, saying, ‘This man began to build and was not able to finish’? Or what king, going to make war against another king, does not sit down first and consider whether he is able with ten thousand to meet him who comes against him with twenty thousand? Or else, while the other is still a great way off, he sends a delegation and asks conditions of peace. So likewise, whoever of you does not forsake all that he has cannot be My discipleLuke 14:25-33 Leaving All to Follow Christ
