Real Life “Apps” for All
We live in a technology world today where we have so many things at our fingertips. Got a question search for it on the internet. On our phones we have games, music, health tracking, access to bank accounts, or any other type of “App” you may can think of or may have. Look at the letters “App” and think of where you have seen them before. They are used in the word Application for your phones or any other technical device you may have.
God wants us to use “Apps” in our lives, but they go deeper than any device can ever take us, and they are 3 “Apps” we need to utilize for fullness in our lives. Yes, think about it a moment. There are three “Apps” that have always been and we need to seek God’s love in all we do and here are the three: Approaching the throne of grace, Applying what He shows you, and Appreciating all His love for you. Yes three “Apps” that make a true difference in your life and it will lead you to see His will for you.
The first is “Approaching” the throne of grace. Seek God in prayer and lay all your needs before Him and search the Scriptures and see His loving direction for your life and situation. In the Book of Hebrews 4:16 (NKJV)…Let us come boldly to the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy and find grace to help in time of need. Hebrews 4:16 (NIV)…Let us then approach God’s throne of grace with confidence, so that we may receive mercy and find grace to help us our time of need. Powerful Scriptures and yes, a beautiful “App”. God has all the answers and with Jesus sitting at the right hand of the Father allows us to approach His throne of grace and to seek His will for our lives.
The second “App” is “Applying” what He shows you in our life’s situation or circumstance. Proverbs 22 encourages us to seek God’s wisdom and apply all that He shows us. Proverbs 22:17-21 (NKJV)… 17 Incline your ear and hear the words of the wise, And apply your heart to my knowledge; 18 For it is a pleasant thing if you keep them within you; Let them all be fixed upon your lips, 19 So that your trust may be in the LORD; I have instructed you today, even you. 20 Have I not written to you excellent things Of counsels and knowledge, 21 That I may make you know the certainty of the words of truth, That you may answer words of truth To those who send to you? God gives us the answers and yes, we are to apply them to see the fullness of His loving direction for us. Now in accepting them is one thing, but do we always thank Him which leads us to the third “App”.
The third: “App” is “Appreciating” all His love for you. 1 Thessalonians 5:16-18 (NKJV)… 16 Rejoice always, 17 pray without ceasing, 18 in everything give thanks; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you. Understand God loves you enough to listen to your prayers, give you loving direction and we should deeply appreciate all He shows us. The answer He gives may be yes, no, wait, adjust, adapt, stay, or go but the key is He loves you so trust His ways and thank Him for giving you His best. What a loving Father and yes “Apps” have always been loaded in us so enjoy the “Apps” that have been placed in your heart by the One who loves you beyond what words can describe.
Father we thank You for Your love. Thank You for Your loving direction and Your will for us. You show us in so many ways Your love for us and may we seek You in all things as we walk this journey You have for us. Thank You Jesus for being our Savior, Amen.
