Today’s Inspiration: “This is the word of the Lord to Zerubbabel: ‘Not by might nor by power, but by my Spirit,’ says the Lord Almighty.” Zechariah 4:6 NIV. The Lord does not despise small and simple beginnings. In the eyes of the the Lord, the world standard of success and the kingdom’s is totally opposite. We measure success by how much we gained like wealth, popularity and position but the kingdom is to deny self, carry the Cross and follow Jesus. Luke 9:23. Today we see a world that is overworked, overstressed and overloaded. Do we do things to please ourselves or to please the Lord? Is bigger the better? What is greater to man might not be greater to God.
What is God’s will, purpose and plan in your life? I always remembered Billy Graham’s comment saying,” I am not a great man but I serve a great God.” I have read the man who builds the biggest church in the world couldn’t get his son to see him as a father but only as a pastor. You can be a CEO in the marketplace but a Zero at home. We keep building outside but some things keep breaking within. So how can we be lesser, and God be greater? John 3:30. In fact, most of what we want proof reflects our insecurity, hurts and pain of past? But if you choose to give them to Jesus, He can free you from all invisible stress, anxieties and fears in life. It’s not how much you do that pleases God or others but how much you love and trust Him that matters. The Bible is a family doctrine and foundation for thousand of generations. He has called us to be sons and not slaves to the world. He measures the relationship more than the results. Praise God!
Prayer: O Lord my God, my Abba Father. Let me learn how to be your son and daugther. Nothing I can do to make you love me more and nothing I have done wrong can make you close the door. Because of your great love, you gave your only Son Jesus Christ, everything was done so I could come back to you my first love, in Jesus' Name, Amen.
