Who Cares??? 11/16/16
Who Cares?? 11/16/16





1 Samuel 25:13 (KJV)
13  And David said unto his men, Gird ye on every man his sword. And they girded on every man his sword; and David also girded on his sword: and there went up after David about four hundred men; and two hundred abode by the stuff.  

1 Samuel 30:24 (KJV)
24  For who will hearken unto you in this matter? but as his part is that goeth down to the battle, so shall his part be that tarrieth by the stuff: they shall part alike.  

Do YOU ever feel like nobody cares???????

Does it ALWAYS seem like YOU are always delegated to be the unknown one who's duty in life is simply ABIDE "by the STUFF!!??"

NOBODY LIKES ME EVERYBODY HATES ME

GUESS I'LL GO EAT WORMS!!!

As I lay AWAKE last night, again in the wee hours of the morning, I PRAYED!!!

NOBODY saw me!!!

NOBODY praised my name and complimented me on my PRAYER!!

I did not feel any more spiritual.

BUT, I WELL know it was EFFECTUAL!!!!!

James 5:16 (KJV)
16  Confess your faults one to another, and pray one for another, that ye may be healed. The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much.  

In fact, it was the BEST thing I have done today AND any day!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

If only WE realized how "EFFECTUAL" our PRAYERS are!!!

Beloved, EVERYTHING hinges on our PRAYERS!!!

EVERYTHING COMES DOWN FROM ABOVE:

James 1:17 (KJV)
17  Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and cometh down from the Father of lights, with whom is no variableness, neither shadow of turning.  

Think about this:

We can do everything humanly possible to be safe, healthy, wealthy and wise BUT::

Lamentations 3:22 (KJV)
22  It is of the LORD'S mercies that we are not consumed, because his compassions fail not.  

No matter how well we eat and exercise, no matter how safe we drive, "IT IS OF THE LORD'S MERCIES THAT WE ARE NOT CONSUMED!!!!!!!!!!!!!!"

No matter how many guns we own or how good our home security system is:

Psalm 127:1 (KJV)
1
  Except the LORD build the house, they labour in vain that build it: except the LORD keep the city, the watchman waketh but in vain.

No matter how hard we work and strive to obtain wealth:

Deuteronomy 8:18 (KJV)
18  But thou shalt remember the LORD thy God: for it is he that giveth thee power to get wealth, that he may establish his covenant which he sware unto thy fathers, as it is this day.

No matter how hard we study and/or how many degrees we earn:

Proverbs 1:7 (KJV)
7  The fear of the LORD is the beginning of knowledge: but fools despise wisdom and instruction.

As I lay there in the still of the night, I meditated on a couple of axioms I have long time found to be absolutely TRUE:

" GOD CAN DO GREAT THINGS THROUGH HE OR SHE WHO DOES'NT CARE WHO GETS THE GLORY/CREDIT!"

And:

" ONLY ONE LIFE WILL SOON BE PAST

ONLY THE THINGS DONE FOR CHRIST WILL LAST!!!!"

TODAY, it matters not to God whether you are tasked with fighting on the front lines of battle OR "staying by the STUFF!!!"

BOTH will share EQUALLY in God!!!

God has a better vantage point:

1 Samuel 16:7 (KJV)
7  But the LORD said unto Samuel, Look not on his countenance, or on the height of his stature; because I have refused him: for the LORD seeth not as man seeth; for man looketh on the outward appearance, but the LORD looketh on the heart.  

Colossians 3:23 (KJV)
23  And whatsoever ye do, do it heartily, as to the Lord, and not unto men;  

AMEN AND AMEN!
