1 Sam 12:14
14 If ye will fear the LORD, and serve him, and obey his voice, and not rebel against the commandment of the LORD,
then shall both ye and also the king that reigneth over you continue following the LORD your God:
Faith is not always reasonable.
That is why we don't make decisions with our minds.
We rationalize and reason with our minds.
But we make decisions with our heart, or spirit.
Faith is not always exciting.
That is why we don't make decisions with our bodies.
We listen to our bodies, and fulfill desires only if they are reasonable; but we make decisions with our heart, or spirit.
Faith is determined by obedience to our Lord.
That is why we make decisions with our spirit.
The spirit is the place where our will determines what we do.
It is the will of our souls that determines our destiny.
This reflects the character of our Lord, Jesus, Who chose "to suffer affliction with the people of God, (rather) than to enjoy the pleasures of sin for a season;" (Heb. 11:25)
It is the will of our souls that determines the JOY we will have in this day.
"If ye WILL" determine to have joy in Christ today - you WILL!
Jesus is ALWAYS "in"!
SIT in obedience to Him, and
you will STAY in His joy!
Choose this day to serve the Lord fully and enjoy the pleasure of His company, and the power of His Spirit in your life.
YOUR choice for joy in the Lord through obedience in faith will affect OTHERS!
