You can't withdraw what you never deposited! If there is some way to do that, please let me know!
There's a trillion things out here to feed our minds with. It is non-stop, continuous, and it bombards us every minute. This is specifically designed to keep humans so preoccupied in hopes that one would never stop and think about the things that are pertinent to life.
There use to be a time when the television stations signed out and there was nothing to watch. Technology has now made it where your mind can feed 24/7 on any and everything. You get to decide when to shut it down.
What are we feeding our minds with? When the pressures of life come, what do we fall back on for comfort and help? How much of the word do we even remember or can recall?
God has design it where those who are saved, are never left without direction, comfort, or joy. We can have as much of Him as we like. Every scripture passage, ministry, or bible study time, sinks deep into the recesses of our hearts and when we need to be reminded, comforted, or helped, they come to the surface of our minds where we can retrieve them in our time of need. You can't retrieve what you've never deposited!!!
Christendom has become a society of one liners, catchy Christianized phrases, and antidotes. I've heard them all so many times that I can't stand it! Where is the depth and profound sharing one with the other? When I am going through ups and downs, I want to hear from someone who has knowledge and first hand experience with Christ. One liners and adages won't do.
This world is on a serious, dangerous course, and there are challenges coming to those of us who say we belong to God! We are going to face personal attacks like never before. Are we ready to weather the storm that's coming? Can we support and encourage someone else in the midst of it all?
Make worthy deposits so that you will be able to withdraw on that investment when the time comes! Keep distractions out! Feed your mind and heart with what will transcend this earth, and you will be a walking power source for all who stop by, and you too will be kept by the power of the Holy Spirit!
