WHAT WILL YOU WEIGH?
*WISDOM FOR TODAY.*
*WHAT WILL YOU WEIGH?*
Daniel 5:27: *TEKEL; Thou art weighed in the balances, and art found wanting,*
*Insight and Highlight.*
All our actions are weighed by God.
What will be your weight and worth when you are placed on the God's scale?
God evaluates His people. You may not know. One day, who you are will be made known to you. Every believer must live with this consciousness.
Hannah writes in 1 Sam 2:3 *Talk no more so exceeding proudly; let not arrogancy come out of your mouth: for the LORD is a God of knowledge, and by him actions are weighed.*
If you love God and you are confident you are pleasing Him, you will crave His evaluation.
Job writes in Job 31:6 *let God weigh me with honest scales, that He may know my integrity.*
Not everyone is as confident as Job was, at making this statement.
God has a standard on which everyone is daily evaluated. Proverbs 16:2 says *All a man's ways are pure in his own eyes, but his motives are weighed out by the LORD.*
It is dangerous to live or serve recklessly as believers.
Remember that the day your weight is presented to you will be marked by either or both of two events:
First, it may be you have been severally warned but you refused to change. If this is so, judgment is round the corner because your sins have reached a point of no return, Daniel 5.
Second, it may be that God needs you to quickly and immediately change your way in order to avert His judgment revealed to you ( ref Jesus' letters to the seven churches, Rev 1:11, Rev 2 & 3.
God carefully monitors all we do.
The king Belshazzar (his father was Nebuchadnezzar, Daniel 5:2) was visited in his prosperity. He was found wanting, he was living a miserable life. Judgment was imminent and he was judged, Daniel 5:30.
When you are weighed, will you measure up?
When God weighs, some will be inadequate to measure up, some will be found deficient, some will be found too light, some will be found lacking.
*Call to Word action.*
1 Corinthians 3:13 *Every man's work shall be made manifest: for the day shall declare it, because it shall be revealed by fire; and the fire shall try every man's work of what sort it is.*
*The Christian clarion duty.*
Hebrew 12:28: 28 *Wherefore we receiving a kingdom which cannot be moved, let us have grace, whereby we may serve God acceptably with reverence and godly fear".*
Lord let me serve you acceptably.
Let me not be found wanting, in Jesus name.
Good morning all and have a blessed day today.
God bless you
