Yet, our Lord Jesus is The KING of all kings and The LORD of all lords, and He has a Kingdom, of which we are a part of. "Seek first the Kingdom of God..." (Matt. 6:33)
So, how can we possibly relate to King Jesus and His Kingdom? Like anything else in His Word, by faith.
I don't have to understand gravity or Internet or how a jet stays in the sky in order to use them. I just do so. I just trust that every time I click "SEND", that somehow my words will appear on your screen. Do I understand it? Certainly not. But, the first time I did it, I became a "believer". So, now I just do it. By faith I know it works.
I don't have to think about gravity. I just throw the ball up for Kodak and it comes down into his mouth. I just go about living, never giving gravity a thought. But, the law of gravity is in constant motion, whether I need it or not, whether I acknowledge it, or even whether I choose to believe it or not. It is a fact. By faith I accept this truth.
God has His Kingdom principles - spiritual laws - that are, likewise, a fact. Whether I think about them or not, whether I choose to believe or not. I read them in His Word, therefore, by faith, I believe.
My friend and I had been praying for Mozart, my friend's sister's dog who escaped the dog sitter a few days ago and ran. And ran and ran. For days the family has been out searching for Mozart. A couple of sightings by people, but no Mozart. This morning, I prayed differently. I called upon God's angels to bring Mozart into the light, we're his family would see him. A couple of hours later, Elaine emailed me. They found Mozart. Thank You, Lord Jesus; all glory to You!
(So, now the answer to prayer turns into an opportunity to share God's Word. I just love it!)
By faith we accept this Truth.
By faith this morning, I called upon the angels of God. After all I am a "subject" in this great Kingdom of our God. My reason for doing so? Because I believe Hebrews 1:13-14 and Psalm 103:20 to be Truth. I also believe the Truth of Psalm 91:9-13:
Because you have made the LORD, Who is my refuge,
Even The Most High, your Dwelling Place,
10 No evil shall befall you,
Nor shall any plague come near your dwelling;
11 For He shall give His angels charge over you,
To keep you in all your ways.
12 In their hands they shall bear you up,
Lest you dash your foot against a stone.
13 You shall tread upon the lion and the cobra,
The young lion and the serpent you shall trample underfoot.
Now that's protection!
Do you give voice to God's Word, thus activating the angels to act on this Word?
By faith in God's Word we can relate to Kingdom of God and His Kingdom principles.
By faith. By faith. By faith.
The Kingdom's guardians get their orders via the spoken Word of God (Ps. 103:20)
I think we should be speaking forth God's Word more than we do! What do you think?
Because of Him and Unto Him,
