Keep your life free from love of money, and be content with what you have, for he has said, “I will never leave you nor forsake you.” – Hebrews 13:5 ESV
For you did not receive the spirit of slavery to fall back into fear, but you have received the Spirit of adoption as sons, by whom we cry, “Abba! Father!” – Romans 8:15 ESV
Monday morning, and I woke up having bad dreams of having to face people who have great expectations from me that I could not meet. They were asking for “convenience” services that they are used to receiving from other people, but not from me, because I have resolved to obey God rather than men. It makes me want to just stay in bed so that I would not face them the whole day.
But my Abba Father, “Daddy God,” gently put his arms around me and helped up from bed. I told him, “Daddy God, I don’t want to face these people anymore. Could you just force them to become godly people so that I could deal with them easily?”
My Daddy God said, “I have already given them my love and my power to change, when I sacrificed my Son Jesus. I also gave you the same power to change your mindset about them. Just go, and know that I AM always taking care of you, giving you favor, and helping you, because you are my child. Always remember, you are the child of the King of kings, and the Lord of lords!”
Wow! That surely woke me up and helped me jump out of bed! I faced the day with great confidence and conviction that I can greet all these people a “Good morning!” because my Daddy, my God, the Lord of Heaven’s Armies, is with me. Whatever they choose to do to me, I know I will come out victorious, I will have a successful day, because my “protector” is the owner of the earth and everything in it! He is greater than the Pope, greater than President Duterte, greater than Bill Gates, or anyone on earth. He actually owns them ALL!
I hope and pray you have the same God as I have. In times of weariness, or guilt, or hopelessness, having God as your Daddy, as your Hero, will always save your day! If He is not yet your God and want Him to be, go to him now and ask Jesus to be your Lord and Savior. Then be a part of a Christ-centered church to grow more in your relationship with Him. He has already prepared all you ever need, to have a powerful, loving, victorious, relationship with Him! I pray you enjoy Him all the days of your life, just like I am enjoying Him!
But to all who did receive him, who believed in his name, he gave the right to become children of God, – John 1:12 ESV
