Word of the day:
“For in Christ all the fullness of the Deity lives in bodily form, and in Christ you have been brought to fullness. He is the head over every power and authority.” Colossians 2:9-10 NIV
We only have one life. But one life well-spent is enough. Let’s allow God to move in each and every aspect of our lives. Let His divine intervention free us from the bondage of sins. Let’s trust Him, for everything that is happening is for us to mature in His fullness. Somehow, some situations we are into are mostly self-inflicted. Haven’t we resisted the move of God in our lives, we are not struggling this way. We can touch the sky, swim the depth of the sea, climb high mountains (move ‘em if you want). At the end of the day there’s one quest we are yet to achieve. In everything we are doing and accomplished, is there a “God factor” in it? Did we made Him smile? Did we made Him glad? Is He proud of us? Or are we blending with the rest of the crowd? We’d laid down lots of sacrifices, cried lots of tears, given up dreams, and we did great deals of surrendering – let’s not stop here. God promised us that we’re not alone, as He promised to Elijah that He reserved thousands of people for Him. (Romans 11:4 “And what was God’s answer to him? “I have reserved for myself seven thousand who have not bowed the knee to Baal.”). If in Elijah’s time that he see all around him are nothing but evildoers, yet, God reserved seven thousands for Him, how much more now that Christianity is well-known, well-preached, well-presented? I’m not after the numbers, but after those hearts that inspite of prevailing norms in a society, they stand for what they believed in. follow that courage, elevate that courage into faith. Let’s have a faith in Him, be among the thousands reserved for Him. Let’s not perish with the crowd.
Isn’t it fair to give our very best to our Maker?
