As I was rounding off my Bible reading this morning, my mind got fixed on thoughts of Heaven while still staring at the pages of my Bible and it was as if I was imagining standing before The Lord. Then a thought popped into my heart:
“What does The Lord think of you? ”
Big question right?
That got me on the evaluation route.
How many of us worry about what people would think of us each day?
Many I guess.
But when last did you think about what God thinks of you?
What does He think of your relationship with your spouse, brethren colleagues and neighbours?
What does He think of your marriage?
What does He think of how you run your business?
What does He think of your relationship with Him?
What does He think of your so-called services in Church and to humanity?
What does He think of your hidden thoughts?
What does He think of your dressing and appearance generally?
What does He think of the way you speak to people?
What does He think of your social media presence and your posts and comments?
The list is indeed endless.
Is God saying, “This is my beloved daughter or son in whom I am well pleased”?
Or is He saying, “What a waste of my resources. What a disgrace to this Kingdom he or she is”
Ask yourself, “What would God say if I act this way or speak that way” before doing what you intend on doing.
What God thinks about you should be of utmost importance to you.
As a matter of fact, that’s what really matters after all.
O, how beautiful would our lives be if our thoughts were filled with the consciousness of God because we love Him too much to want to make Him displeased with us!
Redirect your thoughts line from “what people would say” to “what God would say”.
I felt led to share this with you. . .
