I woke up extremely happy today because when God manifests in your life, everyday is a blessing pon blessing pon blessing, and when you let Him take control, well, mehn oh mehn.
It’s just that with the knowledge and understanding I have now of my Father, there’s so many Uiversal Truths that I challenge.
1. First things first, there’s NO limits with Him. We come begging Him to help, and well, when you don’t get what you asked for, you become childish about it, throw a tiff, sulk, throw Him out, and somehow, when the problem solves itself, you even forget to thank Him. Why do we limit Him in what He can and can’t do in our lives, with the good, and the bad? Why put Him in a special place in our lives where we can call out to Him only when we need him? I was with a friend yesterday talking about our experience with God and we just couldn’t stop smiling. The power to change and make us great and the love, oh the love He has for us is beyond your imagination. The parable of the Prodigal Son shows us what happens when we leave Him out and when we come back to Him.
2. Our righteousness? Lol. Aren’t we a righteous bunch? For a long time I thought being good was all I needed to get into the Kingdom. In truth, the assumption was I had a standard of good-ness. Bruh! The standard of good-ness is Jesus. Can we be as good as Jesus was? I don’t think it is impossible but I know it’s very difficult. Someone slaps you on the right cheek and you put the left? In this day and age, that would be considered madness. But it’s a truth we’ve accepted. We have our set standard of good-ness, and when someone crosses it, oh, we shall be bad ass! The righteousness of Christ is what we should seek, and then we can have access to the Kingdom.
3. Love is the answer. This is a Godly misunderstood universal truth. Love is what makes us change, grow, accept, understand. What would the world be without love? It’s just that when we talk about love, we look at it the earthly way, the human way. There’s is the LOVE. God’s love is unconditional and relentless. He accepts us for who we are, for He made us. Humans on the other hand love accordingly. We love conditionally. We talk about being hard, strong, different, amazing lovers, and honestly, these are just a drop of water in a sea compared to what God’s love for us is. It’s in understanding and knowing this love that you become a conduit of this love. It’s in accepting this love that we can start to live freely. We humans just limit love. We have conditions on how and when we can and should be loved. It’s laughable.
4. Being saved is accepting Christ. It’s is a simple as that. Ati Catholic saved, Muslim saved, Anglican saved, Saved saved….Bruh, its all about Jesus. Yes, I am advocating for Christ to work in your lives. When I use my human goggles, I see imperfection, I see flaws, but in Christ, I walk on water.
These universal truths and ways of life have blinded us from the righteousness of Christ and the power of living in Him and having Him work in your life, everyday.
I don’t do this exercise because well, uhm, well, uhm, hahahahaha, but I do want you to try it. Get yourself a nice fancy book. At the front of the book, write down your worries each day, and at the back, write down the good things happening in your life. Be as honest. Could be a free meal, a movie ticket, free fuel (thanks Ma) or a friend calling. Do the same, write down the bad things. Your boss made you angry. You lost money. You were angry about traffic. Do this for a week. At the end of the week, compare notes. See if your worries matter then, and see the beauty of the good things in your life. Continue to do this for a month. Eventually, what worries you today, won’t even matter a week from now. If it’s a really big thing, well; Take. It. To. The. Lord. In. Prayer.
Everyday with God in my life means no worries for me, and I know for a fact that I am a worrier – human/universal truth but in God, what are these little things. There’s comfort and love in Him. When you discard these human truths and focus on God, well, that is one amazing experience. This daily journey is amazing, and I get to learn new cool stuff. And I get to see change, and growth.
