Today's Inspiration: The physical illness that afflicts us and the death that overtakes us are constant reminders that at best we are frail creatures. When God blew into us His very breath and transform us into a living soul, God is sending a message that we are more than dust and are called to a greater destiny. Psalm 8:3-6. We are called to have Dominion over the works of His hands and put all things under his feet. Hence, we should never allow anyone not even Satan to hold us back or hold us down. As the Psalmist said, God had made us a little lower than angels and are crowned with glory and honor.
Most of all, we who are made from earth's residue can be redeemed and sanctified to the point that we who bear the image of the earth will also bear the image of heaven. Now we are a child of Resurrection through Jesus Christ. Therefore, you should never allow yourself to be despised because all are made from dust. The only difference is who are you serving.
Does your faith rest in the wisdom of men or the power of God? 1 Corinthians 2:3-4. The gifts and the calling of God are irrevocable. Romans 11:29. So be transformed by the renewal of your mind so that you may proceed what is good and acceptable and perfect will of God. Romans 12:2. God be praised.
Prayer: Abba Father, I thank You that Christ died and rose again that He might be Lord for the living and the dead. Therefore, whether we live or die we are the Lord's. May we be count worthy when we stand at the Judgement seat of Christ to give an account of ourselves. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
