How are you spending your time and money? Do you find satisfaction in your life or do you always want something more, something better? Do you think that as soon as you have gained something new (like that new truck or house?)that you will be satisfied only to find that within a few days you are looking for the next "new toy" that is going to make you happy? Do you find yourself working so hard but not really loving the job that you go to everyday? Well, my friend, if you delight in God you will be satisfied beyond your wildest imagination. Try it.........you may just love what you find!!!
Revelation 1:13 says, "And among the lampstands was someone "like a son of man", dressed in a robe reaching down to his feet and with a golden sash around his chest." In Isaiah (above) it speaks of someone dressed like this with a robe and sash. Remember, Eliakim means "God will raise up." It sounds as if this passage speaks prophetically of Jesus. May you have a blessed day. *smile*
I am doing this wonderful study which explains the prophesies of this verse so well and I want to share it with any reading this. It will take a few days. The study is Beth Moore's "Living Beyond Yourself". The name Eliakim means "God will raise up." This verse has such a foreshadowing of who is to come, which of course is Jesus. Come back tomorrow for more info. May you have a blessed day. *smile*
It is truly beneficial to others when your life is devoted to God. The things you do are done out of love and kindness and what is best for the other person. Just as a parent carefully and kindly guides a child, brothers and sisters in Christ should seek to guide each other. Not out of self righteousness, but out of love for the preciousness of the other person.
