Thought for the Day II

"Paul says in 2 Corinthians 13:5, "Examine yourselves, whether ye be in the faith; prove your own selves; prove your on selves. Know ye not your own selves, how that Jesus Christ is in you, except ye be reprobates?"

Here's the test.
  • Is God more precious to you today than He was ten years ago?
  • Do you lean on God more and more for help and comfort than you used to?
  • Do you trust God more than you used to?
  • Do we seek the scriptures to find enlightenment more than you used to?
  • Do you believe God more than you used to?
  • Have you become closer to God over the last few years, months, weeks, days, hours?
  • Are the simple truths in God's Word becoming unveiled?
  • Is the Bible easier to understand than it used to be?
  • Do you sense God's presence more than before?
  • Are you seeking God early in your decisions?
  • Is your faith able to believe things it once used to reject?
  • Do you have a thirst for God that cannot be satisfied with a little religious rhetoric?
  • Do you enjoy the gathering together of the saints for fellowship?
  • Do you desire to be in the presence of God?
  • Do you pray more than you used to?
  • Have your prayers changed from, gimme this and gimme that, to, not my will, but Thine be done?
  • Are you hungry to experience more of God?
  • Do you Exalt God more than ever before?
  • Have you come to terms with the narrow path?
  • Are you sure that the name of Jesus is the only name by which we must be saved?
  • Do you take time out to thank God for all He has done for you?
  • Have you asked God to reveal to you what your ministry is?
There are so of the many things that happen in you and through you when God is in you.
