The Hollow Promises:  theunfetteredpreacher.com

Have you spent time chasing the Hollow Promises, of this life? 

You know what I mean. 

Fame, Fortune, Love, Pleasure. All the things  that we could ever want, desire, need or even imagine.

Many spend whole lives chasing after these Promises, to gain much in material possessions, only to lose that which is truly important.

So if the things we seek are hollow,  meaningless, even worthless? What?  Should we be seeking?

Many believe a loving God will not send them to hell, the good in their lives outweighs the bad.

I pay my taxes, the government takes care of the poor.  I plan for and prepare for my future.

I go to church, sing in the choir, serve on all the important boards and committees.

None of that matters!  WE WERE CREATED FOR ONE PURPOSE!  To walk, talk fellowship and please God.

Thou art worthy, O Lord, to receive glory and honor and power: for thou hast created all things, and for thy pleasure, they are and were created.’  (Revelation 4:11)

How do we give Him Pleasure?  True Praise.  Singing, speaking, and meditation on His Word and ways.

I realize that in my life, lately,  I have not gotten or given God much pleasure.

I have missed the mark of the High Calling of God. I have allowed pain and probably fear steal my joy,

I am blessed at this point, Bette has become a wonderful caregiver.

She has gotten my pain pills on an almost tolerable schedule. Pain is there but not quite unbearable.

I must learn to praise, worship, and walk-in faith. Death itself is not a concern.

My trust must be in the Lord to take care of Bette and Celeste. Knowing that He will do a better job than I, any day.

So Praise, Sing, Worship, focus on Him, not myself. Rest in Him, which is the first job man had.

Man was created and then rested. Look to the Lord, from whence comes our help.

Worship happens as the Lord begins to show Himself strong, and we experience His presence.

That is when we see and become one with Him.
