“Therefore, whether you eat or drink, or whatever you do, do all to the glory of God.” – 1 Corinthians 10:31

Your job is to glorify God no matter what, every day in every circumstance. It takes mental commitment to surrender all to King Jesus and live in selfless servanthood, whether in plenty or want.

Declaration:My life is not my own. I purpose myself to glory God in my thoughts, emotions, and actions.

God and His System

From the Old to the New Testament, we see God send warning after warning to His people. He is so loving and full of mercy and grace that He will patiently wait for His people to get back in order. However, there comes a time when the LORD–the part of God that governs His system–must pronounce His judgment.

The judgment He pronounces is a result of seeds sown–good or bad–and unconfessed sin. This is called “the Harvest.” The saying “you reap what you sow” is not just a worldly catchphrase, but biblical truth. A harvest may bring wealth, promotion, or favor, or it may bring destruction, plagues, and death. Again, it is not God the Father, but the LORD and His system.

Like, what? Are you telling me God is the LORD and they are different? Kinda. God is God but there are many names for God – Adonai is God our Master, El Shaddai is God Almighty, Jehovah-Jireh is God Our Provider. The list of His titles is long.

There is also the side of God who governs His system and He is called “The LORD.” The authorized King James Version, which is the closest to the original Hebraic text, clearly distinguishes God from the LORD. I dare you to jump in the King James and see it for yourself. You will find that God exhorts, God warns, God encourages, God sends messages through His prophets over and over, patiently waiting for His people to get back in position. If they don’t, at an appointed time, the LORD moves in to pronounce judgment of the unconfessed sin.

The harvest system has been in place since sin entered the world. In His infinite mercy, God always had a plan of redemption–a way out. For those who know His voice, He ensured a way for them to always prosper. You see, God did not create the harvest systemas a disciplinary system. Far from it. It was created so we can prosper. When we know the Word and work the word, prosperity comes.

“Keep therefore the words of this covenant, and do them, that ye may prosper in all that ye do.” – Deuteronomy 29:9

To prosper, you need to understand how this system works. Every thought, word, action, intention, and desire of the heart is a seed. Every seed reaps a harvest. Nothing is hidden from God, but we have the power to stop a bad harvest when we confess our sins. Friends, we need to get this. God has given every believer the ability to prosper in all areas of their life. Do you need to be sowing the right seeds and confessing when you don’t? The warning has sounded. Today’s the day.
