With All Your Heart and Soul

But take careful heed to do the commandment and the law which Moses the servant of the LORD commanded you, to love the LORD your God, to walk in all His ways, to keep His commandments, to hold fast to Him, and to serve Him with all your heart and with all your soul.”

Joshua 22:5

It was God’s love and mercy that led the children of Israel to the land that God had promised their ancestor, Abraham, and His power that assisted their victory. When Joshua told them to go home, they gathered their spoils and headed home.

As Christians, we can experience God’s Love and power every day. We can ask God to lead us to victory over our enemies and We can see firsthand the loving way God leads us and the power of God’s word. If you have a question about life, all you need to do is pray and God will make it happen.

To us today, prayer is the key to unlock God’s love and power. Prayer must be prayed to God in the name of Jesus Christ. Prayer must be prayed for the correct reasons and must be prayed from a heart that belongs to God.

Confess your trespasses to one another, and pray for one another, that you may be healed. The effective, fervent prayer of a righteous man avails much.

James 5:16 (NKJV)

There are many preachers and teachers today that tell the congregation what they want to hear so the money will flow their way. The truth is, God don’t hear a sinner’s prayer. God listens to the righteous. The righteous are those who do God’s will every day and put sin out of their lives.

Many will misquote the bible and tell you it is ok or natural to sin every day. It’s Not! However, if you should sin, God has made a way. Go to one of your fellow Christians and tell them of your sin and allow “them” to pray on your behalf.

God loves you and wants what is best for you. God will forgive you if you sin occasionally. However, sinning daily is not occasionally. That is practicing sin.

Look at it from God’s perspective. If you fill your day with sin, you won’t have time to do God’s will. You won’t have time to experience God’s love. You won’t have the time to properly care for you family, study the bible, and you lose the right to pray.

Now look at what God can do. If you study the bible, God can speak to you and lead your daily walk. If you live the bible every day, God can use you to bring others to salvation. If your heart is right with God and you pray for someone else, God will hear that prayer and act on it. God can show His love to other through you.

Try to live each day so others can see “Christ in you.”
