It’s all being RECORDED!
A coworker of mine one day said, its all being Recorded! This stuck with me for months. He has no idea of how much that stuck with me, but he will today. God uses everyone to speak a word into your life. Thank you brother for speaking this word.

John 4:16-19 He told her, “Go, call your husband and come back.” 17”I have no husband,” she replied. Jesus said to her, “you are right when you say you have no husband. 18The fact is, you have had five husbands, and the man you now have is not your husband. What you have just said is quite true. 19”Sir,” the women said, “I can see that you are a prophet.

When this woman discovered that Jesus know all about her private life, she quickly changed the subject. Often people become uncomfortable when the conversation is too close to home, and they try to talk about something else. As we witness, we should gently guide the conversation back to Christ. His presence exposes sin and makes people squirm, but only Christ can forgive sins and give new life.
Let’s Bring it Home: Only God can delete the sin in your life that is being recorded by God Almighty. You see we are not just talking about what we do outwardly, but inwardly also. Our thoughts and actions are all being recorded by God. We all get upset when someone is recording us without us knowing, and when we know we are being recorded we act a certain way, because we want others to see us in a good light.
So the questions is, why are we not concern about the recording that is going on daily that reaches deep down into your soul? When a Husband or Wife eyes start to wonder, when jealousy seeps in, when we drink to drunkenness and act a fool and the list goes on. Remembering we are being recorded will help us to walk in the Spirit of Righteous even more.
The moment we accept Jesus as our savior, and ask God to forgive us for our sins, they are deleted, and remembered no more according to His word. We do face the consequences, but the sin is remembered no more. We all sin throughout the day, but we can go through the day remaining blameless. So take that feeling of being recorded by someone without knowing it and apply it to Gods recording on your life.
How many times does God have to push the delete button on us when we ask for forgiveness. You see, I don’t need no one putting trash in my back yard. I had enough trouble trying to keep own yard straight with my own desires and thoughts. I want God to record and keep the good recordings of my life, how about you?


Under Gods Command

1 Timothy 4:7-10 Have nothing to do with godless myths and old wives’ tales’ rather, train yourself to be godly.  For physical training is of some value, but godliness has value for all things holding promise for both the present life and the life to come. This is a trustworthy saying that deserves full acceptance. That is why we labor and strive, because we have put our hope in the living God who is the Savior of all people and especially of those who believe.  

 Are you in shape both physically and spiritually? In our society, much emphasis is placed on physical fitness, but spiritual health (godliness) is even more important. Our physical health is susceptible to disease and injury, but faith can sustain us through any  tragedy. To train ourselves to be godly, we must develop our faith by using our God-given abilities in the service of the church (see 4:14–16).

Lets Bring it Home: Are you developing your spiritual muscles? Christ is the Savior for all, but his salvation becomes effective only for those who trust him. How much do we trust him?  What happens when we are squeeze by the world?  What comes out, is it worldly or Spiritual Actions that come out?  Do we immediately lead toward our own understanding until it goes wrong, then come back to Jesus.  If that is the case, we need to work out more with the Lord.
