But seek first His Kingdom and His Righteousness…

Matthew 6:25-34
“Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or drink; or about your body, what you will wear. Is not life more important than food, and the body more important than clothes? Look at the birds of the air; they do not sow or reap or store away in barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not much more valuable than they? Who of you by worrying can add a single hour to his life?
And why do you worry about clothes? See how the lilies of the field grow. They do not labor or spin. Yet I tell you that not even Solomon in all his splendor was dressed like one of these. If that is how God clothes the grass of the field, which is here today and tomorrow is thrown into the fire, will he not much more clothe you, O you of little faith? So do not worry, saying, ‘What shall we eat?’ or ‘What shall we drink?’ or ‘What shall we wear?’ For the pagans run after all these things, and your heavenly Father knows that you need them. But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well. Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own.”

Luke 11:11-13

“Which of you fathers, if your son asks you for a fish, will give him a snake instead? Or if he asks for an egg, will give him a scorpion? If you then, though you are evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your Father in heaven give the Holy Spirit to those who ask him!”

 

What is better than everything you’ve ever wanted altogether? The Holy Spirit.

Walk with New Heart Vision

Image

Lately I felt that one of my greatest wishes is to have everything I say or do or even think coming right and unfiltered from my heart.

I’ve grown quite confident in that wish, because I feel that the promise given in Ezekiel 36:26 becomes my reality:

26 I will give you a new heart and put a new spirit in you; I will remove from you your heart of stone and give you a heart of flesh.
I’m not the same. My heart became a vessel of compassion. I see the world and its earthlings differently than years ago and it changes every day. This is the Spirit working in me (Ezekiel 36:27):
27 And I will put my Spirit in you and move you to follow my decrees and be careful to keep my laws.
The Spirit is in us to be a guide that enables us to live a Christlike life. Now, receiving this gift and knowing about it doesn’t necessarily mean that we use it.
The choice is and has always been ours to make. Having decided to follow Jesus doesn’t mean at all that we actually follow Him. To be able to follow Jesus we need to lead a life led by the Spirit.
Remember to choose this Spirit-led life today and every day.

“But… I mean… what happens when I forget to make this choice one day? Would I be ignorant then to the Spirit? Isn’t this really another religious rule to apply?” – Well, yeah. If you put it this way it kinda is. Which brings me back to my wish uttered in my introduction. It is also a prayer:

God, change my heart

and let me be so fully aware of it

that I can not live any other way

than out of the vision

I have through my new heart of flesh.

Until I see that this has also become my reality, I choose to follow – everyday.

Focus

Oh well, here I am writing again, although I’ve wanted to post something days ago. I just have so much going on in my head that I find it hard to write coherent texts. Focus…

In times like these I tend to be content with shots of wisdom. Tiny relevations shoving my heart and mind into some direction. However, I realize now that this is not enough. This is what most people are open to (to get changed a little bit… you know), but it leaves me in between finding importance in my day-to-day life and at the same time wanting to have a greater impact on the world. In conclusion I change nothing really.

The truth is it’s not one or the other: It’s changing your day-to-day life so that it can change the world!

Focus… sure, there are more things you want to see changed, but there is only so much time and resources you are given. Use it wisely and effectively. If you feel there are more time and resources needed – get more people on board!

That’s how it’s done. Choose your path – wholeheartedly.

And remember that major changes in your day-to-day life cause major changes in the world.

I guess this is what I’ve had on my heart today. My next post is going to be more spiritual/biblical – I promise, haha!

Be blessed!
