Are You Not Much Better Than They?
As we enter this new season of rebirth aka resurrection, let us forget those things that are behind and run towards the Kingdom of God. We must rest in perfect assurance knowing that all other things shall be added unto us. God knows that we have need of them and He finds pleasure in crowning us with his loving kindness. We are much better than they.
We spend so much time toiling, to no avail. Anxiety, fear, worry, and depression are the order of the day. Anxious about the past, present and future. Not taking one day at a time or being grateful for what we have. Anxiety demonstrates our lack of faith in the limitless capacity of our Heavenly Father. He is Omnipotent, all powerful, Omniscient, all present, Omnipresent, always present. The Alpha and the Omega. We should trust Him and dwell on His powerful Word. God is faithful, He will perfect everything that concerns us. We are much better than they.
We have been bought with a price that no man could pay except our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. The blood that Jesus shed for us is not common. The Blood is precious and powerful, intended to take on our cares and sorrow and to give us power to overcome in this world and power to #FollowHim. We are the redeemed of the Lord and we declare that redemption to the world. We declare that redemption to ourselves that’s why we can rest in God and run the race that Jesus ran. It was a race for the kingdom of God. Jesus said the Kingdom of God is here, whatever My Father says that is what I do, and He has instructed us to seek first the Kingdom of God and God’s righteousness. We are much better than they.
Our mind is supposed to be focuses on God, focused on the kingdom. Everything else is a distraction. The more we consider His promises the more our faith is strengthened. We are therefore able to face any situation. It is important to sit at Jesus’ feet as Mary did to get your Kingdom instruction. Sitting at the feet of our problems is useless, worry does not produce results, God does. What is your Kingdom purpose on this earth? What are you doing to further the Kingdom of God? Our challenges are just testimony
opportunities. All we need is for God’s finger to touch our lives, projects, health, families, marriages, work and they will shine just as He did with Lazarus at the appointed time, He will call forth your blessing. The less we work, the more God works. Be patient. #FollowHim. God is mindful of you. You are valuable to Him. Much better than they.
God will watch our backs and give us everything else He knows we have need of. Every attack of the enemy that has been plotted against us will be destroyed because the Bible says that every knee will bow, and every tongue will confess that Jesus Christ is Lord to the glory of God the Father. We who chose to give our lives to Jesus, are found in Christ in God. We are much better than they.
God clothes, feeds, protects the fowl of the air, lillies of the valley, grass of the field. Weare much better than they. We were made in the image of God, intended to be sons.We lost our positions because of disobedience yet God did not leave us in a fallen and broken state. He opened a door for us to come back to Him. It is for this reason that the Son of man was sent to die on the cross to redeem us and give us victory. “For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believes in Him
should not perish but have everlasting life”. We are entitled to the promises of God if we obey. He finds pleasure in crowning us with his loving kindness making us more beautiful than the lilies of the valley and the grass and protecting us more than he protects the birds of the air. We are much better than they. #Godisfaithful
No man can serve two masters: for either he will hate the one, and love the other; or else he will hold to the one, and despise the other. Ye cannot serve God and mammon. Therefore I say unto you, Take no thought for your life, what ye shall eat, or what ye shall drink; nor yet for your body, what ye shall put on. Is not the life more than meat, and the body than raiment? Behold the fowls of the air: for they sow not, neither do they reap, nor gather into barns; yet your heavenly Father feedeth them. Are ye not
much better than they? Which of you by taking thought can add one cubit unto his stature?And why take ye thought for raiment? Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow; they toil not, neither do they spin: And yet I say unto you, That even Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these. Wherefore, if God so clothe the grass of the field, which to day is, and to morrow is cast into the oven, shall he not much more clothe you, O ye of little faith? Therefore take no thought, saying, What shall we eat?
or, What shall we drink? or, Wherewithal shall we be clothed? (For after all these things do the Gentiles seek:) for your heavenly Father knoweth that ye have need of all these things. But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you. Take therefore no thought for the morrow: for the morrow shall take thought for the things of itself. Sufficient unto the day is the evil thereof.
