Inspirational Wednesday: Who Are We Living For?

1 Corinthians 10:31 31 So then, whether you eat or drink, or whatever you may do, do all for the honor {and} glory of God.”

Hello beloved, I’ll be honest I’m struggling. Yesterday I wanted to throw up my hands. I literally thought, “Why do I keep doing all this when I meet resistance at every turn?” I’m not getting any gold stars and I’m not seeing much progress. What is the point? My emotions can be intense. I have to abide in God’s word daily to be a nice person. When I’m having a break down I know I need some high intensity abiding time…thirty minutes…an hour…will not do it. I’ve got to soak up God’s word and spend lots of time in worship or this ship will sink.

During some high intensity alone time with Jesus I heard this song by Steven Curtis Chapman. The video is below. Email sub. please come to my blog to see the link. The song is called “Do Everything”. It is a reminder of the verses that tell us to do everything for God. I really needed this. I love it when my Heavenly Father loves on me like this. Maybe I won’t see progress in this world or maybe I will but I’m not doing this life for other people or even myself. I’m living for Jesus and my reward is in Heaven. I don’t know what all the rewards are but I do know the greatest reward is Jesus himself.

Colossians 3:17 17 And whatever you do +[no matter what it is+] in word or deed, do everything in the name of the Lord Jesus {and} in +[dependence upon+] His Person, giving praise to God the Father through Him.”

So when you get like me and just want to quit, remember these verses and who you’re living for. Jesus Christ gave everything for us & we were created by Him. If anyone deserves allegiance it is Him. I will live for the King of Kings. The High King is my Lord!

Well, I thought I’d do a post on idols because I’m doing this study by Kelly Minter called “No Other gods” but it’s not ready yet. Maybe soon…

God bless & remember the High King lives and He loves you!
