In order to test our faith in Him, God often withholds the answers to our prayers until the last minute. We fret and pace and wring our hands, wondering if we missed God by making this particular decision. We have no recourse except to pray in faith, knowing that He led us and He will supply. He always comes through for us, even if it is at 11:59, the moment before the deadline!
When we actually come to understand the reality of the Kingdom of God, and the fact that God will bring His Kingdom to the earth in the near future, it puts everything else in our life into proper perspective. Earthly concerns no longer mean what they used to and we have a more heavenly-minded attitude about our life on this earth.
Comprehending our place in God’s Kingdom will change the way we look at our self, as well as at our future. Believers belong to the upper echelons of the cream of the crop, and there is no one and nothing that can separate us from God’s love and family (Romans 8:31-39). This realization will settle in our hearts, increase our faith and allow God His rightful place in our life.
We find our true identity in the Kingdom of God. We are co-heirs with Jesus of an inheritance, which will never perish, spoil or fade (1 Peter 1:4). We are also joint heirs with Jesus of a hope of eternal life (Titus 3:7). We are children of the Almighty God (Romans 8:17; Galatians 4:7). Angels come and serve us in our time of need (Hebrews 1:14). We will reign with Christ forever (2 Timothy 2:12).
Father, You are our great God, who is waiting to bless us abundantly in answer to our prayers. Thank You for making us heirs of Your Kingdom with Your blessed Son, Jesus. We revel in Your glory and in Your presence in our life. Remind us that You are on Your throne and all is well in our life. Come to us in an abiding and unbroken fellowship in a deeper union than we have ever experienced before.
Thought for the Day:
Remain quiet and trusting, as you wait on God’s provision and direction.
