Receive your portion with reverance and awe!

God is not interested in what you have achieved but is very interested in what you become.
All of us receive our portion from the Lord everyday.
What do we do with it,is the question.
The way we deal with the portion God places in our lives determine where we will be in the coming days.
Do we go through life receiving with reverance and awe the portion God gives in obedience to the Holy spirit?
Do we submit to Him so that he can work his perfection in us and through us or do we go around searching for answers where we will never receive it?
Portions can come wrapped in various wrappings.It is not always shining and beautiful as the world makes it out to be.
The most precious and lasting gift I have received in my life came mounted on the cross wrapped in hate,rejection and sin of the world,the gift of salvation.
Receive your portion with reverance and awe.
How does God deal with us?
Thomas Merton puts it this way.
"He plucks the world out of my heart and then throws it back without ambition so that we can look with God with a painful concern towards the world."
Without God's working in our lives we would never be where we are and without God's working in our lives we will never be where we ought to be.
Receive your portion with reverance and awe.
Obedience with the portion God places in our lives leads us to the things that matter the most,the pearl of great price.
Receive your portion with reverance and awe.
