Today’s blog post will be very straightforward, and I’m sure it will bring you some answers!
I was talking to a lady who has a terminal illness, and she told me that God doesn’t help her, therefore she doesn’t want to fight anymore…
My question is:
Is the answer she so desperately seeks greater than God Himself in her life?
Have you given the sacrifice that Jesus made for you the true value it deserves?
Without any doubt I can say that those who truly know God would never trade Him for any blessing, a moment of pleasure, sin, and all that the world has to offer! Not because they are better than everyone or because they are super holy, but because they know how much God is worth in their lives.
I would never trade my God for anything or anyone in this world! Do you know why? Because the joy that God gives me is far beyond any physical miracle, sentimental blessing, wealth, or any other benefit this world offers.
How about you? Do you feel the same?
Before answering this, examine yourself. What kind of offering have you presented before God? Because if you are not the sacrifice itself, you can never achieve this quality of faith we are talking about. And sooner or later you will end up betraying Jesus for just a few coins.

True Mrs. Elaine,
When you truly meet the LORD Jesus, you will not trade Him for anything. You become the sacrifice and you begin to live your life pleasing Him.
Have a blessed day!

Thank you for sharing this it reminds me everyday that putting God first in my life and in everything I do its already a blessing,God has been faithful to me even sometimes when I don’t deserve it so I can’t trade him for anything else instead I should live a sacrificial life denying myself what this world has to offer by pleasing him and doing his will at all times

I agree with that %, I would never trade my God for anything. All the material blessings that i can get mean nothing without God, instead I will be blessed and be miserable. The peace he has given, keeps me calm in any challenge and I always have the assurance of ,my victory no matter how long it takes.

Thank you for sharing this post! I was thinking as I was reading this post is that remembering the sacrifice that The Lord done for me is what keeps me going in my faith. Of course I am not perfect and I make mistakes but to trade the things of the world for my spiritual life is not an option. I know where God took me from and I never want to go back! I must examine myself daily otherwise I will put myself at risk!
