“You offer defiled food on My altar, But say, In what way have we defiled You? By saying, The table of the LORD is contemptible.” Malachi 1:7
Here in Malachi the Jewish people have been back from exile and in the land for about a hundred years! Safe, secure and prosperous! They’ve become self- sufficient and the LORD isn’t a priority to them! Do we do the same to the LORD today, with more concern for the world than the LORD?
“No one can serve two masters; for either he will hate the one and love the other, or else he will be loyal to the one and despise the other. You cannot serve God and mammon.” Matthew 6:24
Is this you and me today? Usually what happens in life as things get better or we become more self- sufficient, we start to think we need the LORD less and less. We start to give to God our seconds or not at all!
“Thus says the LORD, your Redeemer, And He who formed you from the womb: I am the LORD, who makes all things, Who stretches out the heavens all alone, Who spreads abroad the earth by Myself.” Isaiah 44:24
Realize the LORD doesn’t need us we need Him, and never forget how much He loves us! You and I are always on His mind! Today if you seem to be relying more on your self, the world systems and calling on the LORD last or at all! Stop! Let us go to the LORD first in all things, let us give to the LORD first before anything and make the LORD our everything! Have a blessed day seeking the LORD!
