Isaiah 43:7 (NKJV)

“Everyone who is called by My name,
Whom I have created for My glory;
I have formed him, yes, I have made him.”

Do you love God?

I mean do you really love Him, or were you just taught that loving God is the ‘right thing to do’?

Do you love God or are you just afraid to say that you don’t?

If you love Him, are you in relationship with Him?

If you are in relationship with Him, is He getting anything out of the relationship? We enter relationships with other people for various reasons…love, friendship, fellowship, family, business, pleasure, protection, etc.

Why did you enter YOUR relationship with God?

For love?

Friendship?

Fellowship?

Business?

Blessings?

Protection?

Salvation?

God entered relationship with us to…

Love Him…

Glorify Him…

Communicate…

And, to fellowship with Him through one another.

For whatever reason we entered our relationship with God, we want to make sure He is getting something out of it, and that it’s not just a one-sided relationship.

We must make sure we are spending quality time with him every day.

Who wants to be in relationship with someone who doesn’t enjoy talking to them and spending quality time with them?

Who wants to be in relationship with someone who only comes to them when they want something?

Who wants to be in relationship with someone who only wants to be with them for what they can do?

That’s how some people treat God.

People claim they don’t have time to spend quality time in God’s word, but are on social media and reading their favorite books every chance they get.

People claim they love God, but never show that love by sharing their faith WITH UNBELIEVERS or serving Him through serving one another.

Read Isaiah 43:7 and Ephesians 2:10 and look at just two of the many reasons that God created us…then ask yourself…

Is God getting what He deserves out of my relationship with Him.

BE BLESSTIFIED!

God bless you! I'm a husband, father and ordained Minister since 1996. I serve as an Associate Minister at Oak Spring Church Arlington TN, a suburb of Memphis. I'm a professional Copywriter for a Fortune 500 company, published Gospel songwriter and owner of an independent label, Al-Go-Rhythm Music. My main spiritual gift is Exhortation...I'm a natural encourager. I love the word of God and sharing it from a "Wow, I never thought of it like that before" perspective. There's so much fresh revelation in God's word that is just as relevant today as it was as it unfolded. I hope my daily devotionals enhance your walk with God, taking you beyond BLESSED to BLESSTIFIED.
