Fear God, not men. Maxims 19:23 –

At that point figure out how to fear God, and you will be engrossed in strolling in His quality, not pondering what other individuals consider you.

Obey God, not your appetites. 1 Corinthians 9:24-27-
Our hunger are the interests that we have inside our substance, in spite of the soul, hankering and fighting to be fulfilled. In the event that you give in even the scarcest to these wants, the foe can utilize that to dispatch an assault in your life. In the meantime, the equivalent insignificant act in compliance with God might be utilized to dispatch an amazing, groundbreaking service. Our interests must be subjected to the cross.
Love God, not the world. 1 John 2:15-17 –
What is the object of your affections? Power? Acknowledgment? Side interests? In the not so distant past, I visited an inconceivable house, and as I strolled around it, for one minute my thinking was, “I could have had a house this way.” But I was reminded that a house isn’t what life is about. The world is looking to entice us into a relationship. However, we should love God and be engrossed with satisfying only him.
Believe God, not the receiver. John 8:44 –
In 1938 a man in Long Island requested an over the top expensive climate gauge. He unwrapped it and understood that the bolt that should mirror the climate he was encountering was stuck at the base, pointing at “Storm.” So he pummeled it down a couple of times, and when it didn’t react, he composed a hot letter to the producer and sent it off while in transit to work. When he got back home, he found that a tropical storm had hit, and everything was gone.
God is the life-provider. We will discover life in no other. However, as corrupt animals, our hearts are normally inclined to meander from our Creator. Our spirits were made to seek after God, know God, and stroll with God – nothing else. It’s just as we seek after Him that we live. In the book of Amos, God attempts again and again to get the consideration of His kin. He enables them to encounter starvation, dry season, and plague but then, as God says in Amos 4:11, “you have not come back to me.” But Amos 5:4 helps us to remember where life is found. God says, “Look for me that you may live.” These words ought to stand out enough to be noticed. We will just discover life in looking for Him.
