1 John 3:17, "But if anyone has the world's goods and sees his brother in need, yet closes his heart against him, how does GOD'S love abide in him?" Recently we had a devotional about a person who couldn't pay their utilities, mortgage, food for family or medical. We received a lot of responses but one left me amazed. This person said, "GOD has put on my heart to do what I can", and then sent money, prayers and little notes Praising GOD for that individual. It was more than enough to pay the utilities and with the left over, the recipient became the giver to even another person in need. Sometimes we think and say, "when we get more money or we become millionaires, I'M GONNA do this or that act of kindness". We say, "oh well GOD knows my heart and that I WANNA help". Be careful, because GOD does know our hearts and "The heart can be deceitful" (Jeremiah 17:9). Oh, and the person that Obeyed GOD to help this person? They are not millionaires, they are not cancer free, and they have to try and work everyday even when they don't feel so good. They are DOERS of the WORD, not just GONNA'BES or WANNA'BES. I pray GOD'S Message here touches all of our Spirits.
Psalm 139: 23-24
GOD IS GOD!
