Revisiting the Ten Commandments

Hello People!

My Aunt texted this video to me today and I thought it was worth sharing on my blog. It seems to focus on the issue of Coveting which is listed twice as the Second Last and the Last Commandment out of the 10 Commandments that were inscribed on the tablets that Moses received from God in Deuteronomy Chapter 5 that we should not break.

To Covet is defined by as:

verb (used with object)

1. to desire wrongfully, inordinately, or without due regard for the rights of others:

    to covet another’s property.

2. to wish for, especially eagerly: He won the prize they all coveted.

    verb (used without object)

3. to have an inordinate or wrongful desire.

We need to be respectful and consciously grateful for the things that we do have in our lives so that we don’t end up obsessing over something, or someone, to the very extent to which we seek to have such things in our possession.

Sometimes, when people are feeling empty inside, they think that obtaining things or people will satisfy the void that they feel in their heart, but that is all just a delusion. Nothing in this world can truly satisfy the emptiness one may feel like the Lord can. I believe that when people feel empty, that is when they need God the most. I know that for myself, God is Who I truly needed whenever I felt empty inside and though people can help in some ways to comfort that emptiness, people still aren’t able to fully satisfy the void one can feel inside their hearts.

I truly believe that the Holy Spirit is the only One who can fill the void in our hearts if we just learn to reach out to Him. So for today, if you are feeling empty on the inside, then pray to the Lord and ask Him to fill you with the comfort that He can provide for you through the power of the Holy Spirit. We can have a tendency to underestimate the power of the Holy Spirit in our lives because we simply disregard the Third Person of God. We may disregard what use the Holy Spirit can provide in our lives all because we tend to focus mainly on the First and Second Persons of God who are the Father and the Son (Jesus Christ), and yet we forget about the Third person of God who gives us the power to operate in a realm that supersedes the natural through the power of the Holy Spirit.

The Ten Commandments

Image result for motivationsDo not underestimate the Third person of God who is the Holy Spirit. He is more powerful than we give Him credit for. As Christians, we ought to seek the help of the Holy Spirit at all times whenever our spirits are feeling down. The Holy Spirit is named the Helper/Advocate in John 14:26 for a reason; because it is through Him, that we receive all the answers that we seek. God has provided, and therefore, we will receive the Help that we need in order to keep on pressing forward even when it appears that our future looks quite bleak. God is the One that makes a way when there seems to be none, so for today, focus on developing a closer relationship to the Holy Spirit through your prayer life, and He will convict you and show you things through visions or dreams or signs and wonders to lead you in the right direction. You have not, if you ask not, so ask in order to be able to receive what you have asked for in your prayers. I pray that the video I have posted for today blesses your spirit today. God Bless You Everybody! 😀

John 14:26 [Full Chapter] 

But the Advocate, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in my name, will teach you all things and will remind you of everything I have said to you.

Do not cast me from your presence or take your Holy Spirit from me.

Whenever you are arrested and brought to trial, do not worry beforehand about what to say. Just say whatever is given you at the time, for it is not you speaking, but the Holy Spirit.

Hebrews 10:14-16

14 For by one sacrifice he has made perfect forever those who are being made holy.

15 The Holy Spirit also testifies to us about this. First he says:

16 “This is the covenant I will make with them after that time, says the Lord. I will put my laws in their hearts, and I will write them on their minds.[a]
