2. There is revelation of direction and destiny – believer’s lives are at the center of God’s perfect will
Until now, I find there are so many believer still living for themselves. Unconsciously, most of them are still becoming Mammon’s slaves – they are tangled up in the Babylonian system that make them tiringly keep up with their daily lives or families. Though God has promised, if believer put the fulfillment of Kingdom’s agenda first, then Father will fulfill all their daily needs in divine way!
Matthew 6:33 (NKJV) But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added to you.
Matthew 6:33 (ERV) What you should want most is God’s kingdom and doing what he wants you to do. Then he will give you all these other things you need.
Matthew 6:31-33 (TLB) “So don’t worry at all about having enough food and clothing. Why be like the heathen? For they take pride in all these things and are deeply concerned about them. But your heavenly Father already knows perfectly well that you need them, and he will give them to you if you give him first place in your life and live as he wants you to.
When someone begins to know God accurately, at the same time he also gets to know “a new way of life” that God has set for him. By “seeing God”, he has strong conviction to keep holding on God’s hand and following God’s guidance that directs his life through a different life journey than most other people – this is a faith journey that every believer should be on!
Romans 1:17 (NKJV) For in it the righteousness of God is revealed from faith to faith; as it is written, “The just shall live by faith.”
The revelation of the work of the Word and Spirit in the believer’s life will give him the ability to go on journey of life that is no longer based on human considerations (profit – loss calculation) or from physical facts, but based on various statements of the Spirit and God’s promises that He gives through Holy Spirit or His servants whom He uses to speak for us!
The dimension of the Kingdom glory begins to reveal in his life so that it’s easy for him to compare between the world glory that for so long he has been chasing with the Kingdom glory that the Holy Spirit begins to reveal. From comparing the world glory to Kingdom glory, believer become more determined to make decision to chase Kingdom glory because it is not comparable! It’s like comparing the gemstones to glasses – only the fool who will keep the glasses (the image of world glory) while he is offered to have gemstones (the image of Kingdom glory!)
Indeed, our lives are filled and built by various decisions. Through our decision in everyday lives that position us to keep pursuing Kingdom’s reality, I believe – slowly but sure, we are positioning our everyday lives to be in the center of God’s perfect will!
Those who live in the center of God’s perfect will, they will automatically enjoy the provision, guarding and covering of God in everyday life! #ILoveGod
