"Expiration Date"

When going to the store we unconsciously take for granted that a majority of the food we buy is within the expiration date, we may consciously pay close attention to our milk expiration date. We know that some of the items maybe some what beyond the manufactures expiration date, it will normally be on sale because usually it is not as affective or it is about to go beyond the expiration date.

GOD has an expiration date and it is when he knocks at our door/heart, by being obedient children we are to act upon his commandment right then or possibly miss out on our extra blessings by putting off his will until we are ready to act upon his command. The extra blessing can be found in the book of Psalm 23:5 Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies: thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over. Look at the story in the Bible of the manna from Heaven, GOD supplied food from Heaven to the Hebrews when they were hungry, lost and wandering in the desert, the manna from Heaven was sufficient for that day, what did they do instead they put their own trust in storing the left over for tomorrow instead it spoiled, GOD is sufficient for today.

When GOD gives us an assignment, our labor begins right then and there and if we put if off until it is convenient for us to fit into our own schedule he may just take our assignment and bestow it to someone else that will act upon it right now, (his will must go forth) he is still blessing us but maybe not at the extent he would desire for you, I am so glad that we serve a GOD of a second chance because he will keep giving us chances only if we seek them. We all are being blessed daily, our blessing lies within the sun shining on us, the air we breathe and so on everything is his. The WORD states in the book of Psalm 50:10 For every beast of the forest is mine, and the cattle upon a thousand hills.

By now you see that I have been blessed with using analogies of things we do in our everyday lives by relating them to our Christian Walk, I Thank GOD for this Gift. It was through my Pastors Spiritual Sensitivity that this Gift was birthed and I Thank Him for that and for leading/guiding me to a platform in which my Love for our Lord and Savior JESUS Christ can be expressed. Never judge a book/person by its cover.

"Act on it, before it expires."

"Whats the problem"

Never allow someone else’s negativity on life creep into your Christian beliefs which can have you behaving contrary to what you have been taught. The Bible states that - Even the youths shall faint and be weary and the young men shall utterly fall: - But they that wait upon the LORD shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint. Isaiah 40:30-31

We are not to take things so personnel, remember that one of the greatest forgiveness given is when they crucified our JESUS, the Bible states in the book of Luke 23:33-35 And when they were come to the place, which is called Calvary, there they crucified him, and the malefactors, one on the right hand, and the other on the left. - Then said Jesus, Father, forgive them; for they know not what they do. And they parted his raiment, and cast lots. - And the people stood beholding. And the rulers also with them derided him, saying, He saved others; let him save himself, if he be Christ, the chosen of God.

We have to forgive just like JESUS did, if we are to learn this much needed attribute so that we may begin to soar just like the eagle, when a storm arises the eagle does not seek shelter he rises above the storm. We cannot grow in GODS Grace and Mercy by holding grudges because our feelings were hurt, we must look beyond the action and see their need because they may not really understand the ramifications of their actions. The Bible states - But I say unto you, Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute you; - Matthew 5:44

Troubles don’t last always!!!
