Prov 23:7- for as he thinketh in his heart, so is he… Philippians 4:8 says, "…whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report… think on these things."
Exodus 34:22-24- And thou shalt observe the feast of weeks, of the firstfruits of wheat harvest, and the feast of ingathering at the year's end,Thrice in the year shall all your menchildren appear before the Lord God, the God of Israel, For I will cast out the nations before thee, and enlarge thy borders: neither shall any man desire thy land, when thou shalt go up to appear before the Lord thy God thrice in the year.
Whatever instruction the Lord gives to you, whatever inspiration comes to you as you study the Word or listen to it preached and taught in church, respond swiftly. That’s the kind of faith-response that gets God’s attention. When you respond swiftly to God, He’ll always respond quickly to you as well.
“What is my purpose? Why did God put me on this earth?” What is my reason for being?” That’s the burning question in the hearts of many young people. Maybe you have the same question in your heart today. If you would ask the Lord what His purpose for your life is, He’d tell you. And once you’ve asked, listen and follow Him with your spirit, because that’s where He’ll lead you from.
Often, when we hear the word “Bless,” not many understand what it means. To bless means to cause to prosper, to favour, to evoke successful outcomes. It also means to infuse with abilities. So when you say, “God has blessed me” or when God says, “I’ll bless you,” like He said to Abraham in our opening verse, He’s saying, “I’ll cause you to prosper! I’ll favour you! I’ll evoke successful outcomes—successful results in the things that concern you—so that no matter what you do, no matter what happens to you or with you, it’ll turn out for your good.
