I have a question for you …. 🤔
— Is it possible to let a baby grow on its own, without a parent or even a guardian?
— Is it possible for a fresher to start a new job on his own without being led by a manager?
Here’s the answer – Ofcourse Not. It’s not possible.
Why is guidance then required for a baby or a fresher or anybody starting out new? Because that’s how God created us all.
FELLOWSHIP IS GOD’S DESIGN! 💝
We are called to be a family; just like God separated a people for Himself. Definitely not the brightest, nor the best. However, let’s not become like Israel whose state became miserable even after God gave them everything. On reading the following verse we can understand how they had become:
“But Jeshurun (Israel) became fat and kicked [at God]. You became fat, thick, sleek, and obstinate! Then he abandoned God who had made him, And scorned the Rock of his salvation. (Deuteronomy 32:15)
You and me are the new, freshly baked, thinner, lighter, faster, better, chosen Israel 😊 Here’s our bio:
But God hath chosen the foolish things of the world to confound the wise; and God hath chosen the weak things of the world to confound the things which are mighty; And base things of the world, and things which are despised, hath God chosen, yea, and things which are not, to bring to nought things that are: That no flesh should glory in his presence. 1 Corinthians 1:27-29
The moment we think we are better we start to fumble, jumble and tumble. Why? We end up giving much importance to what we’ve gained in the World rather than the Word. We doubt God and become worldly rather than full of His Word. When life unrolls we are caught up in a storm of worries and grief, fear and confusion.
Reminder: All along God is with us. We’ve been newly created in righteousness and true holiness (Ephesians 4:24). Is our gratefulness being expressed by reflecting those very natures we are born again in?
The Holy Spirit guides us. Are you listening?
This is our time, and we need to make the most of all God desires of us.
Gear up, get your armour on! Jesus is coming soon.
