 Thought For Today - July 31
 Have now! Pay Later!

    Have and enjoy now, but pay later. This seems to be the philosophy of the modern day world, but is it the wise philosophy? Many are willing to sacrifice all their future success and happiness on the altar of the present to satisfy their undisciplined lust and desires. It is possible to beg and plead with God to give us what we want now without ever sitting down to count the cost and the consequences of our obtaining our request, and if God does not seem to respond to our lust, we sometimes kick down doors to make it happen. Blessed are they who wait upon the Lord and ask for things only in his will. Jesus taught that a man's life does not consist in the abundance of things possessed, and that man should not live by bread alone ,but by every word that cometh from God. A storehouse full of things with the absence of the blessing of God is nothing but pure misery. On the other hand, a poor beggar who knows God and fellowships with him is rich indeed.
    God was so good to Israel. He miraculously brought them out of Egypt and caused them to pass dry shod through the Red Sea. He provided water and manna for them in the wilderness, yet, how they lusted for onions and garlic of Egypt.
    "They soon forgot his works; they waited not for his counsel: but lusted exceedingly in the wilderness, and tempted God in the desert. And he gave them their request, but sent leanness into their soul." Psalm 106: 13-15.
    Oh! God forbid! That because of our ill advised importunity and lusting for things that God would grant our desires against his will, but send leanness unto our souls.
    Let us learn to seek first the kingdom of God and his righteousness, and, pray only in his will, and enjoy the fatness of our father's house.
