Are You Looking At Jesus Or Is Your Fleshly Mind Showing?

I dream often and I use these dreams as indicators of how close my life is lining up with God. For a dream cometh through the multitude of business (Ecclesiates 5:3). As a believer in Christ, we should always be distracted with thoughts of what God is doing and thinking and what actions He wants us to take on a daily basis. We exist to please Him.

Take time to review your day and ask yourself how many times your casual conversations with others mentioned Jesus. Did you acknowledge God in all of your ways as mentioned in the Scriptures or where you consumed with something pertaining to the flesh?  “Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or drink; or about your body, what you will wear. Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothes?” These things dominate the thoughts of unbelievers, but your heavenly Father already knows all your needs.

Did the disciples spend hour upon hour discussing the same thoughts that Warren Buffett would discuss or Mark Zuckerberg? Can you use your employment or money as leverage with God? Does God take credit? If it sounds foolish then who or what should we boast in? Therefore, as it is written: “Let the one who boasts boast in the Lord” (1 Corinthians 1:31). Don’t waste precious time boasting in anything other than what God is doing in your life. Anything else that may warrant attention will be burned in the fire. Your plaques, awards, metals, certificates, car, house, hotel, church, whatever, God is going to burn it all up. He says so, in 2 Peter 3:10 ” But the day of the Lord will come like a thief, in which the heavens will pass away with a roar and the elements will be destroyed with intense heat, and the earth and its works will be burned up.”

What should my conversation look like? Jesus, Jesus, Jesus, Jesus, Jesus, Jesus, Jesus, Jesus, and Jesus. Meditate and have your conversation about him.
