Do you live like a pagan or a saint?
« on: February 20, 2020, 09:54:33 am »
In my study this AM I came across this verse....Matthew 6:32

(For after all these things do the Gentiles seek:) for your heavenly Father knoweth that ye have need of all these things.



I think any honest person would say it is hard to trust God when there is no money or food or shelter and yet that is what we are called to do.



I remember one time, when we had nothing to feed our kids but a can of green beans and some older bread...it was hard to trust God and yet we not only found a way to do so but we also had the opportunity to grow in our faith as we watched God care for us.



So I open this discussion for discussion, for edification, for encouragement, for stories of blessings that God granted when the world would have been seeking after the "THINGS" of this world and God's people rested confident that God would provide (No I am not saying doing nothing as in not working for a living but rather, resting in confidence that God has it)

There was this woman who came to my house many years ago. She was selling things out of her car. I can't remember exactly what she was selling. Anyway, we were talking and I just mentioned that I couldn't afford to buy anything from her because it took everything my husband and I could make to pay rent and bills and buy groceries etc. She said, "You must not be living right to be having problems like that".
Really? So I guess there is no mention of anyone in the scriptures having any kind of problem, enduring hardships etc. I can think of many who did. Were they not living right? Were they promised a rose garden in this world? Is it all about materialism and money that determines whether a person is "living right"? I don't think so. I mean really, does God care that we might own an expensive house and  have lots of money and have no problem paying rent and bills and buying food, clothes etc. Is that supposed to impress God? It's sad that so many people think that way. Always chasing after more money and material things instead of focusing on spiritual things.

John 16:33 I have told you these things so that in Me you may have peace. In the world you will have tribulation. But take courage; I have overcome the world!"

2Cor.6:4 in everything, rather, we are commending ourselves as God’s servants: in great endurance, in tribulations, in hardships, in distresses; 5 in beatings, in imprisonments, in riots, in labors, in watchings, in fastings; 6 in purity, in knowledge, in patience, in kindness; in the Holy Spirit, in genuine love; 7 in the word of truth, in the power of God; with the weapons of righteousness for the right hand and for the left; 8 through glory and dishonor, through bad report and good report; as imposters and yet true; 9 as being unknown and yet being well-known; as dying and yet, behold, we live; as being punished and yet not being killed; 10 as being sorrowful yet always rejoicing; as poor yet enriching many; as having nothing and yet possessing all things.

2Cor. 4:7Now we have this treasure in jars of clay to show that this surpassingly great power is from God and not from us. 8 We are hard pressed on all sides, but not crushed; perplexed, but not in despair; 9 persecuted, but not forsaken; struck down, but not destroyed.

16Therefore we do not lose heart. Though our outer self is wasting away, yet our inner self is being renewed day by day. 17 For our light and momentary affliction is producing for us an eternal glory that is far beyond comparison. 18So we fix our eyes not on what is seen, but on what is unseen. For what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal.
Eph. 5:11 Take no part in the worthless deeds of evil and darkness; instead, expose and rebuke them.
“The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing.”

I so enjoy reading your posts....we have been judged our whole lives for being poor and yet when we left it all to pursue God's call on our lives, only a small handful of people grasped that that is what God has called us all to do...to be obedience, to seek God and allow Him to provide all that we need.  And isn't that the heart of the whole thing, we should seek/pursue God and let Him take care of everything else...amen and amen.

I think I live mostly as a pagan; secular.
Hearing, believing and trusting the finished work of Jesus Christ on the cross; His death, burial and resurrection for the forgiveness of sins and REPENTING, seals us with that Holy Spirit of Promise - EPHESIANS 1:10-14 KJV - The Lord is not slack concerning His promise. 2 Peter 3:9 KJV - 1 Corinthians 15:1-4 KJV - Ephesians 1:10-14 KJV - Romans 10:9-10 KJV - Romans 10:13 - Romans 10:17 - Ephesians 1:7 KJV - Colossians 1:14 KJV -
