It is found in Romans 1: 18-21
“For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who hold the truth in unrighteousness;
V19 Because that which may be known of God is manifest in them; for God hath shewed it unto them.
V20 For the invisible things of Him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even His eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse:
V21 Because that, when they knew God, they glorified Him not as God, neither were thankful; but became vain in their imaginations, and the their foolish heart was darkened.”
And verse 21 from the International Children’s Bible,
“They knew God. But they did not give glory to God, and they did not thank Him. Their thinking became useless. Their foolish minds were filled with darkness.”
I can’t let that happen again in my life again - useless thinking. I’ve been there. I’ve been the one that knew God, but did not give God the glory. I’ve lived through a season of useless thinking, but no more.
You have God’s Word on this; If you will give up the things that you hold to that keep you from giving God the glory, God will give you everything He has promised you in His Word.And that’s no idle promise.
God has already begun to pour out His blessings on you, because God doesn’t want anybody to miss this opportunity. Even though God’s blessings have always been there, there are times and seasons that you have been prepared to receive them.
Its time to take action and act on your own behalf. Just as the free gift of salvation is available, by faith, to all who believe, so too are all of God’s promises made available, by faith, to all who believe.
You must start thinking or continue thinking thoughts worthy of a great and mighty God. - A miracle working God.
As I said before, It doesn’t take faith to accomplish what you can do on your own. Faith is when you trust God for what can only be accomplished by God.
Are you ready for that kind of living, then let's get defragging.?
