Malachi 3:18 (NET Bible) Then once more you will see that I make a distinction between the righteous and the wicked, between the one who serves God and the one who does not.
For so long, someone’s spiritual life is considered as his/her privacy that should not be discussed publicly. But I found out that God will reveal our private lives publicly (the positive and the negative will be exposed)!
God will give us promotion and establishment if we have an accurate, positive, divine life that pleases God. He will bring us to enjoy His glory!
On the other hand, if someone have been living inaccurately, unclean and not suitable for public discussion, no matter how high his/her position is, then when God exposes his/her private life, he/she will experience a great fall.
1. Fix our personal lives and align with His truth.
Live accurately in all aspects of life! Have a determination to love His truth; and discipline our hearts to always focus on His word and truth.
2. Always have the spirit of repentance in our lives.
Make sure we ‘listen’ to our conscience. Respond with repentance to every reproof from the heart, even when it seems just a simple matter! The more we obey, the more clear and detail the voice of our conscience, and it will lead us to live in the light of God.
Proverbs 20:27 (NET) The human spirit is like the lamp of the Lord, searching all his innermost parts.
3. Make sure we have the ‘first love’ of God’s reality and His truth. Learn to focus on things that come from God.
We must be disciplined to change the focus of our lives or hearts. People tend to focus on negative things. But we must train to direct our hearts and lives only to His truth.
When our hearts focus on God and burn with love for God and the truth, then we will enjoy life in His world.
Get ready, righteous people! Promotion and establishment from God has come!
Ps. Steven Agustinus
