I feel the Holy Spirit will set the situation and condition for us to be in the middle of the family or community so that we may function as ‘Tabernacle of God’. That’s when we will share the truth, peace, and joy. I see vividly that there are many people stuck in anxiety and fear. They live in deep sorrow. They are not happy in this life. They are really in the darkness.
I came to understand why God continues to speak about truth, peace, and joy. Apparently, it is sought after by many people. So, we have a big responsibility to safeguard the atmosphere of our lives in the covering of peace and joy. Because God will use us to touch the lives of many people. They will come and beg to be freed from the conditions that bind them and they long for the reality of God.
Revelation 21:3-4 NASB “And I heard a loud voice from the throne, saying, “Behold, the tabernacle of God is among men, and He will dwell among them, and they shall be His people, and God Himself will be among them, and He will wipe away every tear from their eyes; and there will no longer be any death; there will no longer be any mourning, or crying, or pain; the first things have passed away.”
I realized it turns out that our minds have become too ‘complex’ to be used by God. Whereas what people need is only happiness or peace – joy from the Holy Spirit. What they cannot get from treasure, wealth and other things, even they cannot get from ranks and positions. They need true joy and definitely, they need God in us.
The time will come when the kingdom of God will become truly exalted on earth through our lives. We will very powerfully represent the reality of God’s Kingdom and swallow death in victory!
Romans 14: 17-18 (NKJV) “for the kingdom of God is not eating and drinking, but righteousness and peace and joy in the Holy Spirit. For he who serves Christ in these things is acceptable to God and approved by men.”
As we continue to ensure that the living water continues to flow, joy and peace continue to overflow, at the same time our spiritual position is elevated. Our presence will exceed the limits of social strata, ethnicity, race, rank, and position. Our life will be used by God to touch the lives of many people from various societies. They will give recognition and respect because we have something that they cannot have without God. So anything we say will be accepted and done.
The reign of God’s Kingdom will be revealed through us! Keep positioning ourselves to function as God’s working partner and God’s representatives on earth! #ILoveGod
