Is your Spiritual bank account flourishing or in the hole? by Elaine Davenport (Tuesday, September 25, 2007)
How much have you deposited into your Spiritual bank account?
(THAT WILL DETERMINE WHAT YOU CAN TAKE OUT WHEN YOU NEED IT)
So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God. Romans 10: 17
Blessings to you. How are you doing? I haven’t written in a while because I have been pretty busy trying to do so many things and trying to find a balance. I have been thinking about you and yet I don’t actually know much about you from a spiritual perspective. I know you from a world perspective and I know that you are a really good person. Only you and God know how you’re doing spiritually and He’s very smart.
That’s what I am writing to you about today…YOUR SPIRIT.
DID YOU KNOW THAT WHEN YOU”RE ON FULL SPIRITUALLY, YOU”RE THE STRONGEST THAT YOU”LL EVER BE?
I keep calling the bank all the time to see what’s in any of my three financial accounts and sometimes I have to transfer money from one to another. You can have a lot of FINANCIAL bank accounts if you wish; but you can only have ONE SPIRITUAL bank account. Everyday you can put something in it. What is in it is up to you.
A lot of people have grown up to believe that only a small part of each of us is spiritual, if that much. Smile. It’s a terrible deception because the BIGGEST part of us is the SPIRIT man or woman. We are a spirit, we LIVE in a body and we possess a soul.
I really knew something was missing in my life when I was afraid all the time, I worried a lot and had a lot of anxiety. Everything bothered me and I worried much too much about what people thought of me, what would happen to me and my family. I can laugh about it all now. I’m 100% confident that ALL IS WELL.
As I began to choose my own personal path for spiritual enrichment, I chose to get to know God by establishing a personal relationship with Him. I found out about how God loves me (and you) unconditionally and what He wants me to do with my life. I began to pray for and love others unselfishly, standing in the gap for them through prayer; so that their needs could be met. My prayers were not short and as I tried it, my faith began to grow. I was led to read the bible. That was a miracle! I had never done it too much and had never wanted to. At first, I fell asleep. Then, I realized it was God talking to me and instructing me telling me why I didn’t have to be afraid of anything and so much more. I eventually learned that I was on the road to building myself up spiritually and how to stay that way. Do you like living life worrying about things or would you like to be confident?
MY PRAYER FOR YOU IS THAT YOU”LL THINK ABOUT THIS MESSAGE AND BUILD YOURSELF UP SPIRITUALLY. THE PEOPLE AROUND YOU NEED FOR YOU TO BE JUST THAT STRONG. I DON”T KNOW WHEN YOU AND YOUR FAMILY WILL FACE A TEST OR TRIAL; (we all do) BUT WHEN YOU DO, DON”T DO IT ALONE.
