Today is the day to know that as a Christian you have the opportunity to become stable and fixed; and when you are consistent in your belief, in your motives, in your life choices, be assured that the blessings of God will come on you and overtake you.

ďAnd all these blessings shall come on thee, and overtake thee, if thou shalt hearken unto the voice of the Lord thy GodĒ (Deuteronomy 28:2).

Each day we are given the many choices to make, and each time you need to make a decision that you are pondering in your heart, train yourself so you can listen to your heart; and then make sure that is your heart that you listen to.

God created you and you are a spirit, created in His image; and when you are born again, you receive a new-born spirit.  The Bible tells us that we will have to make decisions to follow Christ, and in making decisions we will need to know that there is a constant war between your flesh (your earthly desires to please yourselves) and your spirit (your spiritual desires to please your Heavenly Father).

ďFor the good that I would I do not; but the evil which I would not, that I do....O wretched man that I am! who shall deliver me from the body of this death?...I thank God through Jesus Christ our Lord then with the mind I myself, serve the law of God...Ē (Romans 7:19).

Your earthy desires do not always reflect the desire or need of your spiritual being, and your earthly desire doesnít prefer to do what the spirit wants to do.  You are a three-part being.  You have a decision maker that helps you when you are trying to make a decision.  Your mind is trained and it breaks in and makes the decision (for the choices in your life); this part is your soul, consisting of your mind, will and emotions.  Your soul is not born again, and your mind (your thoughts and reasoning capabilities) need to be renewed by learning Godís Word and listening to the Spirit of God.  As you learn Godís Word, you will learn the sound of His voice and know the promptings of the Spirit.

When you know His Word and know His voice, you have the grand opportunity to be led by the Holy Spirit.  When you are led by the Holy Spirit then you are a maturing child of God.  We are all growing and learning in our relationship with our Heavenly Father.  When you begin learning of God, when you become a mature child of God, you will have proven yourself by being stable and fixed by being consistent in your beliefs.

Following the desire of your heart is following the desire of Godís heart.  When you have matured in your soul, you are able to make wise choices in following what you should do.

Have a blessed day filled with adventures in faith!
