Consider Your Ways

My brother Corey was an awesome young man of God.  He had a passion for God that was off the charts crazy.  He would minister to young people, and their lives would be changed by the power of God.  Unfortunately, he passed away in 2005 at the age of 22 due to a rare kidney disease.

Before he passed, he preached a sermon entitled “Consider Your Ways”.  Coming out of the book of Haggai, it details God telling us, in pointed terms, about ourselves.

Haggai 1:3-7

3Then came the word of the LORD by Haggai the prophet, saying,

4Is it time for you, O ye, to dwell in your cieled houses, and this house lie waste?

5Now therefore thus saith the LORD of hosts; Consider your ways.

6Ye have sown much, and bring in little; ye eat, but ye have not enough; ye drink, but ye are not filled with drink; ye clothe you, but there is none warm; and he that earneth wages earneth wages to put it into a bag with holes.

7Thus saith the LORD of hosts; Consider your ways.

We have to make sure every nook and cranny of our lives is like Him.  Our “ways” about things should reflect Him.  Sometimes we think if we just give our tithes and be a good person, then we should automatically be blessed because of that.  But to God, it doesn’t work like that.

Are my ways not pleasing Him?

If not, I need to get that corrected.   As the Word of God keeps getting stretched and conformed in any way it can suit us, we need to remember that our ways should be pleasing to Him, and NOT our flesh.  Then we can be able to flow in the blessings He has promised us.

I thank Corey for reminding me on how “my ways” really matter.
