The "Unexpected":

     It is critical to remember His Word tells us that we are not to place our Treasure in this life.


     Not an easy thing for the flesh.


     Do not gather and heap up and store up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moth and rust and worm consume and destroy, and where thieves break through and steal.

     But gather and heap up and store for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust nor worm consume and destroy, and where thieves do not break through and steal;

     For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also.
                  Matthew 6:19-21 (Amplified Bible)


     You re a Soldier of The Cross. You love and cling to the taking up of the Cross and following hard after Him.  That means your hands can't be clinging to other things. 


     What are you thinking about?  Talking about?


     The battle is in the mind.  


     Soldier, make sure that you are not always striving for control over circumstances.  Your goal must be to know Him.  To be like Him.  To be quickly responsive to the Holy Spirit.


     Stand before Him and deal with the matter of your thought life. He will renew your vision of following Him.
     Do it aloud.
