I’m writing this to me, but I’m sharing it with you. Proverbs 21:2 says, “Every way of man is right in his own eyes, but the Lord weighs the hearts.” Job 31:6 Amplified says, “Oh, let me be weighed in a just balance and let Him weigh me, that God may know my integrity!
Contrast Job’s life with king Belshazzar. God weighed him on His scales. Daniel 5:27 says, “Tekel: You have been weighed in the balances, and found wanting.”
Proverbs 24:11-12 says, “Deliver those who are drawn toward death, and hold back those stumbling to the slaughter. If you say, Surely we did not know this, does not He who weighs the hearts consider it? He who keeps your soul, does He not know it? And will He not render to each man according to his deeds?” James 4:17 says, “Therefore, to him who knows to do good and does not do it, to him it is sin.”
In putting all these verses together I had to ask myself: How would my life weigh out on God’s scales? As I thought about the answer I considered this. Remember He told the church in Laodicea that they were lukewarm-not cold or hot. God’s scales would not be balanced. They would be tipped to hot or cold. There is no lukewarm in God’s kingdom. There is no straddling the fence.
Paul told Timothy in 2 Timothy 1:6 to stir up the gift that was in him. 1 Timothy 4:14 he told him to not neglect the gift that was in him. 1 Corinthians 4:16 says, “Therefore I urge you, imitate me.”
Haggai 2:19 says, “Is the seed still in the barn?…” Joel 1:17 says, “The seed shrivels under the clods, storehouses are in shambles; barns are broken down, for the grain has withered.”
We are sowers. Our nation is in trouble, but there is hope through the gospel. Here is my next question to myself: How do I weigh in God’s scale with evangelism? We must seize this opportunity. Hearts are fearful. No one knows what is going to happen next. They are looking for answers. We have the answer within us. Let us be about our Father’s business.
