Too often we let ourselves be caught up in material things and not the things that will last. Do you often think that you want bigger, newer or greater things? If it were not for God’s goodness toward you, then you would have nothing. We must acknowledge that everything comes from the Lord. It is nothing we have done. Often God will open doors for you for new opportunities and you may think to yourself, “Well, how could that be?” All the time it was the Lord working behind the scenes so that certain doors could open for you.
When it comes right down to it, we must thank the Lord for everything we have. If we are careful to do that, and if we make God the #1 Person in our lives, then when the time comes for the mark of the beast – 666 – we will be able to resist more easily because Jesus is King of your heart. God is a jealous God. He wants you all to Himself. Seek him with all your heart. He is UNCHANGING. People may come and go, but God is UNFAILING! Things in this world are fleeting. Our treasures are in Heaven. Let us all hearken to His Words.
