God Scoops on the Blessings
We all want our ice cream packed down into the bottom of the cone or sundae dish and that's how God scoops on our blessings. When we are giving as we should, there's no air left in the bottom of the cone.
Give, and it shall be given unto you; good measure, pressed down, and shaken together, and running over, shall men give into your bosom. For with the same measure that ye mete withal it shall be measured to you again. Luke 6:38
God tops my life with joy…love…peace, mercy, etc.
I Scream! You Scream!
What are you screaming about? What makes you excited? Are you as excited about the Lord as you are about baseball and ice cream?
Let them shout for joy, and be glad, that favour my righteous cause: yea, let them say continually, Let the LORD be magnified, which hath pleasure in the prosperity of his servant. Psalm 35:27
How sweet are thy words unto my taste! yea, sweeter than honey to my mouth! Psalm 119:103
Just like homemade ice cream, God made us with the right ingredients.
I will praise thee; for I am fearfully and wonderfully made: marvellous are thy works; and that my soul knoweth right well. Psalm 139:14
Watch Out for Meltdowns!
Just like ice cream needs to be kept in the right place (freezer) with the right temperature to protect it, we need the Lord to protect us as well.
Unless we are seeking Him daily we won't be holding that temperature as a Christian that we should.
What throws you off track and gives you a meltdown? Forgetting to read your bible? Keeping away from church and Christian friends?
