Don’t Get Entangled! – Rhapsody Of Realities TeeVo Devotional April 24th

(Live Purposefully For Christ)

TO THE BIBLE: Ephesians 5:15-16 AMPC
“Look carefully then how you walk! Live purposefully and worthily and accurately, not as the unwise and witless, but as wise (sensible, intelligent people), Making the very most of the time [buying up each opportunity], because the days are evil.”

Recent attempts by Satan to drive the world into an environment of the Antichrist (before the Rapture) have resulted in a great deal of deception and the devastation of lives and livelihoods.

Thank God, the Church stepped up to the plate and thwarted all of Satan’s schemes and ploys. Hallelujah!

But why did these events even occur in the first place? It was because many of God’s people were learning the principles of the kingdom only to satisfy their desires and measure their success by how many material possessions they had. They started living as if this was the only world there was, not recognising how brief life is here.

Regardless of who you are or what you do, everything is about to come to an end. Live with intention and purpose. Refuse to let anything divert your focus from the Lord. Remember, profit is not godliness (1 Timothy 6:5).

Do not assume that because you are accumulating belongings and experiencing success in material pursuits, you are carrying out God’s purpose. No, don’t gauge God’s approval by earthly standards.

Additionally, never feel as though you have lost anything by serving the Lord with all of your heart and resources because you don’t appear to possess many of the material possessions of this world.

Serving the Lord and carrying out His will for your life are the finest things you can do on this planet.

Get rid of any and all entanglements and burdens so that you can serve the Lord happily and with a pure heart. Don’t equate God’s prosperity with the world’s success symbols.

Regardless of any difficulties you may experience, serve God with a perfect heart and be eager to thank Him.

Irrespective of the difficulties in today’s world and the challenges that may come my way, I remain excited about Jesus, the Holy Spirit, the Word of God, and serving the Lord! By the guidance of the Spirit, I serve God joyfully and with a perfect heart, being prepared and alert as the coming of the Lord draws near. Amen.
