I hope this helps those who say they want more of God, and they want to do the things the apostles did in the Bible, and see their family saved!!! So lately I’ve been feeling like I have to let every vain thing go, and really pursue God MORE. So this morning when I got up, I began to sing “I can’t entangle myself, in the cares of the world, because I must please him who has called me to be a soldier.” Now I haven’t read this scripture in a longgggg time, so I know it was God opening my understanding, and showing me how important it is to let go of vain things. God showed me this: the scripture says “No man that warreth entangleth himself with the affairs of this life; that he may please him who hath chosen him to be a soldier.” (2 Timothy 2:4).
Warreth means: fight, to engage in spiritual warfare. When you war you are opposing the devil, your praying strategically against the devil, your against all darkness, your exposing darkness, your standing in the gap for your family, your taking everything back he stole, and your not being ignorant to his devices, and etc.,
Yet the scripture says no man that does those things entangles himself with the affairs of this life, that he may please him who hath chose him to be a SOLDIER. That means when your warring, your not involving yourself in worldly (sinful), vain pointless stuff. Your too busy in the presence of God, and redeeming the time, because we are striving to please God. What soldier on the battle field has time to get caught up in vainity??? They may lose their life!!! That thing may distract them! They are in a different environment than a normal citizen, so they must focus more. A soldier at war loses things/and pleasures that a normal citizen has access to. Now, I’m NOT saying don’t brush your teeth, don’t go out to eat, don’t get your nails done, don’t go on vacations, I’m saying, why sit up playing video games for hours, when you can be reading the Bible? Why sit up on the phone for hours talking about vain things that’s not helping your walk with God? Why hang out with ppl for hours who don’t believe in God, and they influence you to sin? Why stay on snap chat, Facebook, and social media for hours, when you could be praying, reading, and breaking the back of the devil??? We can’t develop those type of habits. You say you want more of God right (I know I say this lol), well you have to give him more!!!!!!
