Day 2 Unhappy: What is your true intention?


God I weighed in the scales of justice and recognize my integrity!

Now a days what we see and perceive is an inversion of values, people are getting more anxious and preoccupied with so many things and are indifference with the things of God.

We see more anxious people from what it looks like and very few trying to please God.

I remember when I started in the church I had a strong need to know God, to know more about his will and how to please him; what could I do to get his attention. Now a days people want to see if God meets their needs, they want to be blessed in their love life, want to be prosper, they want to be important and to be recognized, and I see nothing wrong with that. On the contrary I think its really good.

But all of that its just seen as a persons first desire; rather than people wanting to have an encounter with God. People who want all that and have never had an experience with the Holy Spirit, people being full of themselves and are just completely being focused on their own benefits and dreams.

"Therefore do not worry, saying 'What shall we eat?' or 'What shall we drink?' or 'What shall we wear?' For after all these things the Gentiles seek. For your heavenly father knows that you need all things. But seek first the Kingdom of God and his righteousness, and all these things shall be added to you." - Matthew 6:31-33

What is your true intention? Ask yourself this!
Could it be that I want to please God? Or I just want him to do what pleases me? Where have I his strength and his will? Who do I want to impress? Who do I want to please?

First to please God you must hate your life because most times what we want is not what God wants.

Want to draw the attention of God? Fight against your own wills, fight against the will of the world and the desires of your heart, hear only the voice of God! It will not be easy, but it is beginning to being on the right track.

God is most interested to bless you with the presence of Him in your life, He wants everyone to know that the he chose you and that he is with you.

Are you willing to honor and serve him?

Check your values and what you intend to do from now on, because that will show your real intention. Make a list of how you will work to change the spiritual situation you are living, remember that people come before things and their communion with God comes before their responsibilities, and do not live by emotion! Strive for your goals and sacrifice your own will to please God.

If you see that you are being inclined to the things of the world, to the pleasures of your flesh and have been lazy with your spiritual life, ask God for forgiveness, humble yourself before God, acknowledge your sin and faults, and seek forgiveness. Especially from those you have hurt with your bad behavior and ask forgiveness, many people do not receive God's forgiveness for not confessing their sins and reconcile with the people who have offended them.
