Being righteous with your actions
It is a pleasure to be here with you.
I have something important to talk about … or it might even be an answer to your question:
I have observed that there are many assistants that do vows with God, are hard workers and very active in the Church. But I have also noticed that many of these same assistants that are physical active are not the same when it comes to their Spiritual life. This is the reason why many have suffered in their sentimental life, are sad, always complain, and don’t respect others not even the Pastor. They speak badly about others, have bad eyes, etc. In the Church they wear a uniform, counsel people, and even have the Bible on the tip of their tongue. But in their daily lives they aren’t righteous.
In their work place they are always angry, complaining, and don’t like to be corrected. They always have conflicts with those who surround them.
And because they don’t like to be confronted they respond back.
And they still think they have the right to receive justice from God, and even demand it from Him!
They are determined to receive justice from God, but they don’t live a righteous life.
Let’s see what the Bible says about this type of behavior:
“You shall do no injustice in judgment. You shall not be partial to the poor, nor honor the person of the mighty. In righteousness you shall judge your neighbor.” (Lv.19: 15)
Louise has counseled many assistants and has detected problems, precisely because many are not Spiritual. And they want us to do justice using our emotion. They become “victims” and say, “I didn’t do anything. I don’t understand why I’m going through this situation.”
If you are not righteous you will not receive the answer to your prayer. You are your own unanswered prayer.
Offerings and tithes represent your life, if it isn’t seen as only money then no one will ever complain, murmur or have bad eyes. Your unrighteous actions are exactly the tithe you are offering before God.
Sometimes you give your sacrifice in the Campaign of Israel but don’t receive the answer you are waiting for, for this reason you even begin to see it in a bad way.
Justice can’t be something precipitated, you must think it through thoroughly. You must analyze everything before making any judgments.
It can’t be done with feelings such as: anxiety, worry, selfishness or pride.
If you say you are righteous then why fear? Why not trust in God?
This is the reason why many pray and still feel bitter: Because they are not righteous, therefore not giving a true sacrifice.
Sacrifice is something that we decide to do for God, individually. You decide to give it even if you say, “it’s so hard, but I don’t want this to be above you, God.”
Sacrifice is to give that which is holding you back.
If you still hold on to your own justice, ideas and thoughts, you will not have the right to receive justice. You can only receive those rights when you are connected to God and dependent on Him.
If you recognize that you have done wrong and are willing to pay back what you owe by asking God to take out what ever is holding you back and tell him, “God, I don’t want to be unrighteous before You anymore, I want to be free and change my actions. ”
When you are sincere you won’t be afraid to expose yourself and embrace His justice!
Next week, we’ll talk more about this.
