Revelations 20:11, 12
Let that marinate…
Sometimes we can be so caught up in the affairs of this world. The bigger house, the prestige job, that large bank account can so overwhelm our daily affairs. It can even make us feel like failures if we don’t achieve them, or make us too prideful when we do. Yet have you ever stopped and thought of how all these things are what Ecclesiastes calls vapors? God is not against us having these things, but he’s not please when these things have us. They are added things as we are to be seeking His Kingdom first!
Let’s go even deeper…do you ever stop to think about the book of life and how your chapter will read on that day of being face to face with him? Selah
I wonder what it would say. Would it say I forgave or I just couldn’t give that over to the Lord because He knows how bad that person hurt me. Would it say I saw them through your love or well we are under grace and God understands why I just can’t stand that person. Would it say whatever gifts you given, no matter how great or small you feel they maybe I used them for your kingdom, or would it say I wasted it too much time on material gain.
Bold Existence Ministries really made me think this morning. Heaven and earth is going to pass away. That home, that car, that job, even that relationship is going to pass away. So why get so caught up in vapors? Treat it for what it is a blessing while passing through, not your identity. Not even your real life. I don’t know about you, but I want my chapter to be a good one. Thank God, for his mercy that blesses us fresh very morning to change our chapter in the book of life.
