21 For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.
“I, the LORD, search the heart, I test the mind, Even to give to each man according to his ways, According to the results of his deeds.
What do you want Him to discover when He is exploring your heart and it’s desires?
7 because the mind set on the flesh is hostile toward God; for it does not subject itself to the law of God, for it is not even able to do so,
Let’s remember what that Law is.
5 Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength
If we are using His strength, what or who will be able to keep us from Loving Him?
We know from Romans 8:38-39 that Nothing can keep us from His Love..Nothing!
I can do all things through Him who strengthens me. Philippians 4:13
Then we should definitely be able to keep This Law Within Our Daily Lives. It’s the most important Command and the second is to Love your neighbor as yourself. When you know How much you are
Loved by The Creator THEN you will know how to love others.
Lets move back to the first command of Loving our God with all our heart, If we are to be One with God, that means we are to be God infused. It’s about having a Relationship and with any relationship, learning to trust is important. How can we trust if we do not know who it is we are trusting?
We want God in our Lives, but are we Willing to Get Into the Life Of God?
A relationship is made of two. Both doing their part. There isn’t a person out there that could agree that they enjoy being on the Nonexistent end of a one-sided relationship. Imagine being in a relationship with someone, you know all about them, you know their favorites of life, as well as their dislikes. Imagine that the only time you hear from this person is when they want to use you as a sounding board. Imagine if this person never truly included your interest, your likes, or considered your dislikes. Imagine if they never ask for your opinion or cared to even set time aside for you? Imagine if they never tried to learn anything about you. Would you consider this a productive healthy relationship?
Let’s start getting into The Life of Christ! He already knows all about us, He considers our thoughts and our ways, let’s get to know Him! We do not need to acquire His love, He is already offering that free and clear, but what He does want is our attention. He wants our heart and mind.
So in Loving Our God with All of our heart we are not to put anyone or anything above Him. No person, No Job, No opinions, No hobby, No Nothing. We put Him first and including His Word. The rest falls where it Falls, right into every inch of His Good Will.
Heart and Mind God Infused!
Where to start?
We involve Him with every inch of our lives. We start the morning by waking up, He is present.. Are You ? Talk to Him in your mind, out loud, sing to Him. However you want, Just spend time with Him, In the shower, in the car, Anywhere is perfect. It’s not about an opening and closing of the day, it’s on going. Set a special time to Read the Bible! Here is where you will find the details of His true character. That’s How we Know His truth and how we separate it from anything else that comes our way.
The more we read His word, the more we Hear His voice within our decisions. This is how we receive His feedback. This is how we learn of His opinions, His likes and dislikes.
Let’s start getting into The Life of Christ. Then the next time that we imagine Him giving our heart a good examination, He will find that our heart is full and overflowing with.. Him!
let us pray
it’s true at times I have treated this relationship unfairly. I thank you for the Love and attention you give to me each and everyday. All of the intricate details and plans you have for my life, I know I can never thank you enough. But I can give you my heart and my attention. I want to know you Lord on a deeper level. Help me to set my time and rearrange my priorities. I want to know your thoughts and your ways as you know mine. Guid me into your Glory, help me to see the world, through your eyes. Help me to love others as you love them! In Jesus name I pray.
