“You did not choose me, but I chose you and appointed you to go and bear fruit – fruit that will last. Then the Father will give you whatever you ask in my name.” (John 15:16)
You will have the tools to bear fruit for Jesus because the Father will provide. Jesus choose you, the Father will make sure you have the equipment you need.
Sin is detrimental fun. Following God’s path is uplifting fun. The Lord works out everything for his own ends – even the wicked for a day of disaster. (Proverbs 16:4, NIV)
God gives blessings, not insignificant gifts. His blessings are consistent with His will and purpose for your life. Plain gifts are what you want for your own edification. The blessing of the Lord brings wealth, and he adds no trouble to it. (Proverbs 10:22)
And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him who have been called according to his purpose.
When we love God we are focused on him; he is the center of our world. We join him in his work; we fulfill His will and his purpose for us.
The Process of becoming what we feel God wants us to be is not easy. When a prefect God, brings us closer to His perfection, for His use, our adjustments to His requirements are not easy. But the adjustments we call difficult, can’t in any way be compared with the difficult task Jesus had of dying for the sins of others. Every day, we must continue to hope that “just at the right time” we will experience the feeling of accomplishing exactly what God wants. However remember, the process of becoming is not easy.
Therefore, since we have been justified through faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ, through whom we have gained access by faith into this grace in which we now stand. And we rejoice in the hope of the glory of God. Not only so, but we also rejoice in our sufferings, because we know that suffering produces perseverance; perseverance , character; and character , hope. And hope does not disappoint us, because God poured out his love into our hearts by the Holy Spirit, whom he has given us.
You see, at just the right time, when we were still powerless, Christ died for the ungodly. Very rarely will anyone die for a righteous man, though for a good man someone might possibly dare to die. But God demonstrates his own love for us in this; While we were still sinners, Christ died for us. (Romans 5:1-8)
Whatever God has put into your trust, be it, self, family, finances, relationships are your responsibilities. God’s appointed trust in His church (1 Corinthians 12:28) and gifts from the Holy Spirit (See 1 Corinthians 12:7-11 ), are required to administer those responsibilities according to God’s will and way. 1 Corinthians 4:2 “Now it required that those that have been given a trust must prove faithful.”
Then Melchizedek king of Salem brought bread and wine. He was priest of God Most High, and he blessed Abram saying,
“Blessed be Abraham by God Most High, Creator of heaven and earth. And blessed be God Most High, who delivered your enemies into your hand.”
Then Abram gave him a tenth of everything.
“You are worthy, our Lord and God, to receive glory and honor and power, for you created all things, and by your will they were created and have their being.”
Be joyful always; pray continually; give thanks in all circumstances, for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus.
This is the confidence we have in approaching God: that if we ask anything according to his will, he hears us.
