Scripture: Keep yourselves in God’s love as you wait for the mercy of our Lord Jesus Christ to bring you to eternal life.

Observation:  Sometimes in this human flesh it is difficult at best to keep myself in God’s love.

Application:  As a creation of God, I hate to admit it but sometimes it is work to stay in God’s love.  If we aren’t in the word everyday or not in prayer everyday, we continually empty ourselves of the very spirit that keeps us close to God’s love.  Don’t get me wrong God always loves us and keeps us close, but do we do the same for Him.  

To live a Spirit filled life is not always easy, but it is attainable, if we ask God to fill us up with the Holy Spirit and to keep us God minded, he will answer our prayer, because the bible teaches if we ask it in His name it will be given to us according to his will.  I believe God’s will is for us to keep Him as close to us as he keeps us close to Him.

In a difficult world, in contemptuous times, in times when God’s word is being ruled as uncontitutional, it is the best time for us to remember to stay close to God’s love and don’t let the world pull us away from Him.

Prayer:  Dear Heavenly Father, help me to stay close to you, help me to stay God minded, please refuel the Holy Spirit in me and teach me your ways in a very troubled world.  Help me to stay focused on you always.  I love you Lord and I pray for your return.
