The Unconditional Love of God
 
 
New believers may find it difficult to accept the fact that God loves us just as we are. Much of the world operates by conditional love, which offers approval and acceptance on the basis of performance. So when we first come to Christ, there is often a natural tendency to assume we must strive to "deserve" our blessings, such as monetary wealth, loving families, and solid careers.
Divine love, however, can never be earned by human effort. There is absolutely nothing we can do to make God love us more or to influence Him to stop loving us. (Romans 5:8But God (demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us. ;1 John 4:8The one who does not love does not know God, for God is love. ) Many believers understand this intellectually but have trouble believing it deep down in their heart.
No matter what has occurred in your past or what you feel right now, the Father's love has always been freely given to you. God pours His love upon us without exception - no ifs, ands, or buts. He did not begin to love you at the moment you invited Him into your life. Nor did He begin to love you when you first started going to church or when you rose from the baptismal waters. In truth, God never "began" to love you at all; He imply always has. From the creation of the world, God knew you and loved you.

The Wisdom / Riches Connection
Pastor Andre Butler

I love them that love me; and those that seek me early shall find me. Riches and honour are with me; yea, durable riches and righteousness. My fruit is better than gold, yea, than fine gold; and my revenue than choice silver. I lead in the way of righteousness, in the midst of the paths of judgment: That I may cause those that love me to inherit substance; and I will fill their treasures. -- Proverbs 8:17-21

In the Scripture above, the wisdom of God is speaking. In this context, the wisdom of God is very simply the Word of God--the Word that you find written in the Bible, and the Word that He may speak to your spirit. God is teaching you here that where you find wisdom you will find riches. There is a wisdom/riches connection.

Wisdom and riches are like Batman and Robin--where you see one, you see the other. But the riches that come with this type of wisdom are not the types of riches that you see in the world today. The world is seeing that their riches are uncertain riches, but the Bible teaches that the wisdom of God will produce durable riches in your life.

This means that even when the economy is down, you will still have your riches and when it is up, you will still have your riches. You can be an individual that does not have to participate in the world's economy because you operate on the Word economy. As members of the Body of Christ, we can see increase, even in times of economic recession.

You see in verse 20 above that God's wisdom leads us in the way of righteousness. Notice that there is one way to righteousness. All of the other religions in the world are not just different ways up the mountain, as many would have you believe. No, there is only one way to righteousness, and the verse above says that God's wisdom leads you in that way so that you can inherit substance.

Now, wisdom leads in the way for reasons other than just that, but here God is emphasizing the inheritance of substance. God is saying that He has given you His Word so that you, as His child, can inherit substance and have full treasures. Now, today you don't have "treasures" so to speak, but you do have a bank account. God has given you His wisdom so that He can fill up your bank accounts. He didn't just say put something in it--He said fill it! The point is, God wants to fill your treasures.

You can see very clearly from Proverbs that God's will for you is that you operate in divine wealth. His will is that you don't just have enough, but that you have more than enough, so much so that you don't have room enough to receive it (see Malachi 3:10).

You should have so much substance that it will cause the world to look at you and want to know how you received it, and want to know the God that gave it to you!

The Lord watches over you- the Lord is your shade at your right hand; nor the moon by night. The Lord will keep you from all harm-he will watch over your life; the Lord will watch over your coming and going both now and forever.

How to Love Others
 
 
Jesus told his disciples, "In everything . . . treat people the same way you want them to treat you". Most of us refer to this code of conduct as the 'Golden Rule.'

In theory, we'd probably agree this is a good foundation for a healthy relationship. But, it's tough to live up to such a standard. If we made a list of the ways we hope to be treated and compared it with our own behavior, we'd likely fall short.

And of course, it's easy to love when others are treating us well. But how do we respond when their behavior is hurtful or unpleasant?

The truth is, Jesus meant for us to love others all the time, not just when they're lovable. Regardless of their attitude toward us, we're to think about the relationship qualities we value: like loyalty, trust, encouragement, forgiveness, acceptance, and protection. Let these flow from us in their direction.

Unfortunately, our society breeds selfishness, greed, and pride, which are enemies of the love Jesus commanded. But when we care for others in the way the Lord prescribes, relationships can deepen and thrive. Treating others with this kind of love isn't natural or easy, especially when people are unkind. In fact, loving as Jesus commanded is impossible on our own. But when we trust Christ as Savior, the Holy Spirit empowers us and lives His life through us.

Take time to list the ways you hope others will treat you. Now ask, Is that how I treat people? Pray for God to reveal one area where He will help you apply the Golden Rule.

Matthew 22: 37And He said to him, " 'YOU SHALL LOVE THE LORD YOUR GOD WITH ALL YOUR HEART, AND WITH ALL YOUR SOUL, AND WITH ALL YOUR MIND.'   38"This is the great and foremost commandment.   39"The second is like it, 'YOU SHALL LOVE YOUR NEIGHBOR AS YOURSELF.'"

Be blessed , Debra

Today's Topic: Passionate People Get there Needs Met
Verse(s): Psalms 37:4
Today's Confession: I'm going to give more attention to the Lord and less attention to the problem.
 
Devotional:
The more attention you give to someone or something the more passionate you become about it.
When I was in college at Texas Tech University I became passionate about Texas Tech football I mean we lived and breathed Red Raider football games. I wasn't that way before I went there but once I went to college there it consumed me because I gave so much attention to it. I mean, every football game we were the first ones there. We had red and black paint on our faces. We knew all the players, all their numbers, the scores. We traveled to the away games we were passionate about Texas Tech football.

Well the more attention we gave to it the more passionate we became and everybody around me was passionate so it was easy to become passionate. It can be the same way with God the more attention you give to the Lord the more passionate you become. The less attention we give to God the less passion we have for Him. Passion for God doesn't just come naturally because there are so many things that are fighting for our attention in our lives. It's a decision we have to make. We have to choose to become passionate about God. And when we look to other people to give us only what God can give us I'm telling you we are headed for a miserable life. When we begin to look to other people to comfort us all the time, to strengthen us, to give us direction for our lives, to meet our needs spirit, soul, and body,  all that stuff, we are headed for a miserable life. God is the only one who can comfort you twenty four hours a day. He's the only one who can give you peace in your mind when everything around you is falling apart. We have to on purpose by a decision choose to give Him attention.

Years ago I was not passionate about God. I loved Him with all my heart I've never stopped loving the Lord. I've always gone to church but I can't say that I was passionate about God. It wasn't a goal to be passionate but I was at a state of desperation. I wasn't passionate I was desperate and you know what - God responds to desperation. I was desperate for peace. I knew that God is the God of Peace, Jesus is our Prince of Peace so I knew that I had better start seeking Him if I wanted peace. It was a decision of desperation but I had to make myself give Him more attention today than I did yesterday and that meant going to church faithfully. I had to start somewhere. Read more of the Word today than I did yesterday. Hear more Word on a CD today than I did yesterday. That's giving Him more attention. And the more attention I began to give Him passion began to ignite in me. It just came naturally.

"Change what you give attention to and your desires will change."

If He declares you are worthy, then it's a done deal.

The Blessings of Others
 
If we responded simply out of our natural impulses, we would probably be nice when people were kind. At other times, though, we would likely be vengeful, angry, or hurtful.

Jesus clearly teaches us to love even when those around us seem unlovable. And He lived out what He taught. Christ loved us enough to die for us while we were still sinners. Surely, out of gratitude for what He did and with His strength, we, as His followers, can love others.

While it's hard to respond to unkindness with love, such godly behavior can lead to great blessing.

First, the Father is pleased. This realization should bring His children joy, peace, and a sense of accomplishment. Next, believers ought to feel excitement and anticipation to watch how God will move in the relationship. Finally, there will be an awareness the Holy Spirit is working from within, enabling divine love to flow through yielded human lives.

John 13:35 tells of an important benefit. Jesus said, "By this all men will know that you are My disciples, if you have love for one another." Since unconditional godly love is uncommon in our world, people will notice.

Treating others as we want to be treated is what builds the deep, satisfying connections that all people desire. Without significant relationships, life lacks meaning -regardless of how many possessions or acquaintances we have. So think about the people you come in contact with throughout the week. Are you treating them the way that Jesus modeled?

When We Feel Frustrated
 
Many people have seasons of frustration in life. Some feel hindered from achieving goals. The natural reaction is to blame circumstances or individuals instead of ourselves. External forces may trigger unhappiness. Sometimes we make changes to avoid irritation like quitting a job, ending friendships, or moving away. But we can not find genuine peace that way.

When we feel frustrated, we need to investigate the cause. Discontent has three internal roots. One is not being able to accept ourselves as we were created. Our talents, personality, and physical attributes may not be what we desire. But, they are exactly what we need to follow God's will for our life. Dwelling on what we lack or what we would change distracts us from service.

A second internal root for frustration is an unwillingness to deal with our past. We may have painful memories or recall mistakes that brought heartache. We need to admit their impact. Then we can confront any resulting emotional or psychological issues to move on in peace.

The final source of frustration is a refusal to deal with behaviors or attitudes that are outside the Lord's will. Holding on to an ungodly action often makes us try to justify ourselves to our Father and others.

The human solution for frustration by changing external situations will fail every time. The only way to end frustration is by relying on God for the strength to cope with its source.
 
 
God's Provisions
Philippians 4:10But I rejoiced in the Lord greatly, that now at last you have revived your concern for me; indeed, you were concerned before, but you lacked opportunity.  11Not that I speak from want, for I have learned to be content in whatever circumstances I am.  12I know how to get along with humble means, and I also know how to live in prosperity; in any and every circumstance I have learned the secret of being filled and going hungry, both of having abundance and suffering need.  13I can do all things through Him who strengthens me.
