Tuesday Tea~~Leaving the World Behind

The world doesn't have to meet me where I am today. The world doesn't have to understand my place in the Lord. Each of our walks of faith are different. The plan God has for you is not for me. The plan God had for my parents is not the same plan He has for me. The plan HE has for my husband is not for me. I'm sure you get my point. His plan for everyone is different. Yet, we have to be in a place to hear him talking to us to know what HIS plan is and move on it; not walking in FEAR.

I want to give a new meaning to the word FEAR and let you dwell on why you need to leave the world behind! Look at fear as an acronym(I love these)

FORGET EVERYTHING ABOUT worldly REALITY
No matter what the world says about you, God thinks more highly of you. No matter what the worldly reality may look like right now, you have to see past today, into the life of what GOD has for you.
Don't worry about what the world says today...step into your tomorrow through faith and understanding from the word God has given us; the bible.

Romans 12:2 (bible.com{NIV})
Do not conform any longer to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God's will is—his good, pleasing and perfect will.

We have to leave the world behind. The wants, the needs, the lusts, the things that make us feel alright, we have to leave it behind and look to the Lord.

Colossians 2:8 (bible.om{NIV})
See to it that no one takes you captive through hollow and deceptive philosophy, which depends on human tradition and the basic principles of this world rather than on Christ.

Let the people say what they want to say about you. Just stay on the spiritual straight and narrow. Sip on the cup of grace and mercy, sweeten your speech with honey and lemon from the natural life God has given you. Just leave the world behind!
