I was trying last night to start on today’s blog and couldn’t come up with any topic I felt comfortable with. I went to bed hoping the Lord would either help me with that or at least give me a clear mind so that I could write something of benefit to our readers for this morning. He did. Since this bible verse kept coming to my mind throughout the night, I suspect its message will confirm what God has been speaking about to one or more of our readers. Here is the verse: Be watchful , and strengthen the things which remain, that are ready to die : for I have not found thy works perfect before God. (Rev. 3:2) I really don’t know whether the message to you has a spiritual, health, relationship, or a financial tone, or if it just deals with a decision one or two of you have been contemplating. However, I do understand the verse’s general message, and it is pretty clear. Regardless of what it deals with, God wants you to work on and try to strengthen what you still have because if you don’t that too will die.
The reason that message was not for me today is because the Lord already gave it to me some time back. In my case, and with most people my age, it mostly concerns our health and physical well-being, although in some cases it may mean we have to strengthen our relationship with Christ and draw closer to Him. That could also have been the message to some of you. Has your relationship with God slipped a bit? Have you lost your joy, or your desire to read the Bible, pray, or go to church? How about your other relationships, those concerning your family, friends, parents, children, or spouse? Could it be one of those relationships needs careful attention immediately before it dies altogether?
In the end, this message can be an eye-opener to all of us. There are important matters in our lives that we may have neglected. The Lord may be trying to tell us to make a thorough check on each one of them and to work on those that need it. Although strong, happy, and healthy Christians serve God and represent Him better, it is mostly for your benefit that He has given you today's message. Think, pray, and do something about it. I know you’ll be happy that you did.
