“The days are coming,” declares the Sovereign LORD, “when I will send a famine throughout the land–not a famine of food or thirst for water, but a famine of hearing the words of the LORD.  Men will stagger from sea to sea and wander from north to east, searching for the word of the LORD. but they will not find it” (Amos 8: 11-12 NIV)

Context:  Amos was prophesying  before Israel was captured by the Assyrians.  Is there a famine of hearing the words of the LORD today?  Pray for revival.

 The BIG Shake!

 
I have read lately from 1 John and in Chapter 2 and verse 16 it says (in the expanded version of the Bible)

“These are the ways of (all that is in/associated with) the world: wanting to please our sinful selves (the desire/lust of the flesh), wanting the sinful things we see (the desire/lust of the eyes), and being too proud of what we have (the pride of life/possessions). None of these come from the Father, but all of them come from the world.”

Now reading all that – I started to think WOW! that’s me – I’m proud, I desire things of the world and I want to please myself – where does that leave me?? I pondered.

I can tell you where it leaves me – open to the BIG shake in our lives – when the waves batter us down and the wind…

FOCUS ON THE SIGNIFICANT

Heavenly Father, we ask for your guidance today as we walk with you, seeking your will, Will be Done. We ask that the treasures we store, will be Heavenly Treasures, rather than worldly treasures. We ask this in the Name of Jesus. Amen..

 

Matthew 6:19-21  Concerning Treasures

“Do not store up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moth and rust consume and where thieves break in and steal; but store up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust consumes and where thieves do not break in and steal. For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.

1 Corinthians 3:14 
If any man’s work . . . remains, he shall receive a reward
 
Significance is a time issue. What is forgotten in time is of little significance. What is remembered for eternity is of great significance. Paul wrote to Timothy: “Discipline yourself for the purpose of godliness . . . since it holds promise for the present life and also for the life to come” (1 Timothy 4:7, 8). If you want to increase your significance, focus your energies on significant activities: those which will remain for eternity.
