Occupying Your Own Life by Karla Perry

Excess without purpose becomes waste. We have all experienced this. Whether it's extra money, space, time, relationships, or land, if it is not purposed for something intentionally it becomes a magnet for whatever comes along to fill it or take it.

Money

This principle often happens with money when a person receives extra monthly income. The problem begins when this extra income is not purposed for anything in particular. The hope is that ends will meet better just because the extra is there. In no time at all, the extra is swallowed up and we hope for another raise or bonus to come along to rescue us from our financial woes.

Space

It's a great practice to clear out old clutter and get one's home in order. However, a newly cleared space is a powerful magnet drawing stuff from everywhere to fill it. This is an easy thing to experiment with. Clear out an old closet or a shelf in the kitchen and watch how fast it finds new stuff. Try again and clear it out with a plan of what you purpose to fill that space. Then you are far more likely to succeed in maintaining it for the reason you purposed it for.

Time

Time works the same as the above examples. When we have a new opening in our time it can also become a vortex for things we never intended. Maybe we changed from a full-time job to a part-time job, and after a few weeks of extra time in our week we find ourselves entangled in new projects and responsibilities that are weighing us down with more work than our full-time job. We wonder how in the world we got into such a bind. The reason is that the new time was not purposed for something particular, or if it was, it wasn't intentionally managed for that something.

God Against No One by Joseph Perry

I am against everyone whom God is against. Who is God against? Non-Christians? Members of the LGBT community? Atheists? Muslims? Buddhists? New Age practitioners? Witchcraft practitioners? Many people, Christians and non-Christians alike, may believe that God is against all of the above. This, however, couldn't be further from the truth. Christians, well-versed in the Bible, may believe that the Bible supports such things. In fact, many pit themselves against the practitioners of such things because they believe that God is against them. But what if He was not? Jesus said,

"He who is not with Me is against Me; and he who does not gather with Me scatters." (Matt. 12:30)

Notice what He says here: "He who is not with Me is against Me." When we say such things, we mean, "If you're not going to support me then I am going to treat you as an enemy." But that is not what is happening. Does the Bible say we are enemies of God before the cross? Of course we are. (Rom. 5:8) But it's not because God has declared us enemies. It is because that is our state that we have chosen, not Him. In other words, we make ourselves enemies of God by our choice to stay in our sin, which goes way beyond the practices mentioned above. Things such as gossip, lying, and loving money all condemn us if we choose them over God. When we choose them, we set ourselves against God. God is not setting Himself against us. This is an important distinction. He is the Way, the Truth, and the Life. He does not need to choose a stance against something or someone. God is not against homosexuals, though people choosing homosexuality are setting themselves against God. God does not set Himself against liars, but liars are setting themselves against God. These people, along with gossips, coveters, the unforgiving, and others may not be intentionally turning their heart from God, but the thing they choose puts them in this place.
