For him or for Him

Source

The two kings.

But be very careful to keep the commandment and the law that Moses the servant of the Lord gave you: to love the Lord your God, to walk in obedience to him, to keep his commands, to hold fast to him and to serve him with all your heart and with all your soul.” Joshua 22:25 New International Version

Saul began his kingship being blessed by God. As time progressed however he was more concerned about pleasing himself than pleasing God. Over time he became angry, bitter and paranoid. He ended his life being cursed by God. The same is true with people. I see people that are very self centered or people pleasers. They are the most miserable, saddest and angriest people I have ever met.

David on the other hand was solely devoted to God and he was blessed including the most marvelous blessing of all, knowing that the king of kings would come from his linage. The people I have met that walk with God life lives full of love, peace and joy. One of which is myself.

Christians are called to take action in their life, not be spectators. Joseph- Anthony: Green

Which one are you living?

Prayer: Thank you Jesus Pryyand (Jesus my friend) for developing a close loving relationship with You. It is the most special blessing. Whenever I begin to stray my beloved gently guide me back into Your holy flock. I give thanks and ask for this wonderful blessing in the name of Immanuel (God amongst us) Jesus Christ. Amen.

May the sunshine of Jesus’ sweet love bless you today and every day.

I always wonder if only all those people who proclaims that they are Christians really act christians. This will be a different world for sure.

Thanks for your wonderful hub.
