I recently came across this from Glenn Repple and after getting permission to share this with you, the Lord willing we will be sharing it on a daily basis in place of the Missions Thought from Togo .  We hope you enjoy these as much as we do.

Instant Coffee

God's Kingdom is power and glory forever and ever.

What are you building that lasts forever? Have you invested in anything which takes 20 or more years before you begin to see the results? Have you invested in anything in which you will never see the final results?

Are you investing for instant gratification? Are you living off the instant coffee, microwaved meals, and fast food? Is every investment you make seeking a temporary or quick solution?

God's Kingdom is eternal and endures forever and ever. It is everlasting. God's Kingdom has no end. God is the Alpha and the Omega.

Building a family, building a marriage, discipling a new Christian, developing a Spiritual gift, parenting a child, building a business and building the Kingdom of God here on earth as it is in heaven take time and an investment of years with patience and perseverance.

As a believer you are called to build the Kingdom of God. You are an ambassador to this world. Your homeland is in eternity with God. Eternity began when you invited Jesus Christ into your temple to reside in you through the Holy Spirit. He wants to fill your temple with power and glory forever and ever. You are the walking, breathing, living temple of God. Allow the Word of God to dwell in you today. Allow your temple to be filled with HIS Glory. HIS temple is Holy. HIS temple seeks righteousness and peace.

The Bible says, "Do you not know that you are the temple of God and that the Spirit of God dwells in you? If anyone defiles the temple of God, God will destroy him for the temple of god is holy, which temple you are" 1 Cor 3:16-17. "For you are the temple of the living God. As God has said: I will dwell in them and walk among them. I will be their God, and they shall be My people." 2 Cor 6:16

I invite the Glory of the Lord into my temple today. Fill me with YOUR GLORY and POWER. Fill me with your HOLY SPIRIT Lord so I may know your presence today. May your Glory shine through all I do, say and think. Help me walk in your ways so I can bring praise and honor to you. Lord I reject instant gratification and seek eternity. I desire to know you more than any other desire in my life. My confidence is in you. In any circumstance which comes at me today you will be my guide. You will give me peace and comfort. Thank you Lord for your gift of Jesus in exchange for my sin. I reject the instant coffee and want to plant eternal seeds in my life, my marriage, my family, my work, my Church, my community, and my nation which last forever and ever.
