I am being robbed of My priceless possession. The things you put before Me in your lives are thieves that are robbing Me. I bought you; I paid an unspeakably high price for you. But now your home, your hobby, your shopping, your planning and scheming are robbing you from Me.
I want you back. But you must make the decision; you must put the robbers in their place.
When you give Me your love and passion, I increase it and it flourishes and grows and brings us both delight. When you give your love and passion to anything else, it withers and falls, just like the dead leaves on a tree, and you are left empty and cold, barren of life. Why would you choose anything above Me? Isnít it because you donít know Me? Come to know Me. To know Me you must come. Put away all that entangles and come.
I Corinthians 6:19b-20a (NIV)
You are not your own; you were bought at a price.
Matthew 13:12 (NIV)
Whoever has will be given more, and he will have an abundance. Whoever does not have, even what he has will be taken from him.
Deuteronomy 30: 8-10 (NIV)
8 You will again obey the LORD and follow all His commands I am giving you today.
9 Then the LORD your God will make you most prosperous in all the work of your hands and in the fruit of your womb, the young of your livestock and the crops of your land. The LORD will again delight in you and make you prosperous, just as He delighted in your fathers,
10 if you obey the LORD your God and keep His commands and decrees that are written in this Book of the Law and turn to the LORD your God with all your heart and with all your soul.
Philippines 3: 13-14 (NIV)
13 Brothers, I do not consider myself yet to have taken hold of it. But one thing I do: Forgetting what is behind and straining toward what is ahead,
14 I press on toward the goal to win the prize for which God has called me heavenward in Christ Jesus.
