The whole duty of many is to enjoy God.
“Seek ye first the kingdom of God and his righteousness and all these things will be given unto you.” (Matthew 6:33)
Are you embracing God’s glory each and every day?
What morning habit can you establish to do that?
There is so much noise in our culture. For me, it’s very important to pull away from that on a daily basis to hear from God and to soak in His presence – to embrace His glory. One day in His courts in better than a thousand elsewhere (Psalm 84:10).
Because I am a networker of networks, many people seek my time and Internet marketing expertise. To combat this, I remind myself often that God created me to be a catalyst, not the main reaction. I’ve learned the hard way, it’s much more effective to give a man a fishing pole and teach him to fish than to keep giving him fish.
I love sharing what Jesus has done as well as uncommon ideas that are birthed in the Holy of Holies. Finally God has brought me to the place where I will soon be coaching and connecting hundreds of people at a time several times a week through webinars (web seminars) rather than one-on-one. And the beauty of this is that I can do this from home or anywhere in the world I am.
Yesterday morning as I lay in bed resting and reflecting to receive fresh revelations, I was given the word “SIMPLIFY.” I’ve been thinking a lot recently about one of my top life lessons, “Good habits are the key to all success. Successful people do daily what unsuccessful people do occasionally.”
While it seems useful to have a business plan, it’s crystal clear to me that the ways of God are contrary to the ways of the world. God wants His plans to be able to trump our plans. God wants us to seek Him with all hearts and meditate on His Word morning and night. Abraham didn’t have a business plan to become father of many nations. He simply obeyed God. Joseph didn’t have a business plan to go from the prison to the palace overnight. He simply did the right things day after day. King David didn’t have a business plan to lead Israel as its king. He simply had a heart after God’s own heart.
The key to my success (and yours) lies within this profoundly simple statement Jesus made, “Seek ye first the kingdom of God and his righteousness and all these things will be given unto you” (Matthew 6:33). That’s my daily theme verse. Psalm 1 reinforces the importance of this, “Blessed is the man … whose delight is in the law of the LORD, And in His law he meditates day and night. He shall be like a tree Planted by the rivers of water, That brings forth its fruit in its season, Whose leaf also shall not wither; And whatever he does shall prosper.”
On Feb 15, I received an email from Stephen Burke, Theresa Light’s brother and founder of The LORD Will Provide Ministries announcing the first ever “Embracing God’s Glory” conference to be held at the Hilton Garden Inn in Temple, Texas March 13-15, 2008. This conference is free to the public and exists solely to encourage the Body of Christ to experience God and His Glory through obtaining a more intimate relationship with Him.
Heavenly Father, I do embrace Your glory right now. I am so humbled to be in Your presence and to be called and claimed as a child of Almighty God, the Creator and Sustainer of the universe. Bless those who read this message with daily habits to embrace Your glory. Thank You Jesus. Amen and hallelujah.
