Stop It! (the mad rush)


Think of the things you want now in quick succession.Irrespective of your age,there are some goodies of life that, if possible,you will like to have them at the same time.You may be ready to do anything to have them.
You think of them in the morning,afternoon and at night.You anxiously desire them.
Do you know that even if you have all of them now,it will not be long before another set of wants will surface for the normal feelings and emotions to follow.
The trend will continue unabated.Please,it is now time for you to Stop it,it is a mad rush!
Be contented with what you have and thank God for them.You have a great gain in godliness and contentment.I Timothy 6:6
Form a picture of yourself(you can try it out in your closet) putting on three sets of clothes at the same tine.How will you look like and what will people say about you?
Is it convenient,if possible at all,for you to put on two pairs of shoes at the same time? Can you put on three caps or headgears at the same time?
If all these things will not speak well of you,then it is time to stop it,the mad rush to amass them.
So many women,young and old,have become harlots simply because of these things.
Many men also engage in one criminal activity or the other because of these things.
All that every man or woman crave are what to eat,drink and put on.Because of these,possibly,you are now worrying yourself sick.
The advice of given by the Lord goes like this,
“Therefore I say to you,do not worry about your life,what you will eat or what you will drink;nor about your body,what you will put on. Is not life more than food and the body more than clothing?
Which of you by worry can add one cubit to his stature?Matthew 6:25,27
Job captured the true picture right when he said,
“Naked I came from my mother’s
womb,
And naked shall I return there.”Job1:20
Then if you are a human being and you believe Job’s statement,is there any sense then in amassing worldly materials at the expense of your life and those of others?
What must you do now? The Lord Jesus counsels rightly,
“Seek ye first the kingdom of God and His righteousness,and all these things shall be added to you.”Matthew6:33
Do you want to get all that you need without the mad rush,spend the whole of your time to seek the kingdom of God and Jesus Christ,the righteosness of God,Romans 3:21,22,and all other things that your life needs shall be given to you.
To seek Jesus Christ is to confess repent and forsake you bad ways.As from today,let Jesus be the Lord and Savior of your life.
Continue walking with Him as the Way to God,the Father,for the rest of your life.
Worry will vanish from your heart,His peace will come in
Stay blessed in Jesus name.
