Looking deeply at our creation as human beings and not having to look farther off, we know that we were at first just a mold of clay, as we were made of it. But a difference was needed and God had to breathe His life into our bodies. Hence we were made living and no longer ordinary mortals or mere men because of His spirit in us. But then we remain one (just a mold of clay) without His spirit at work in our lives.
So dear friend, with or without, there is truly a difference. We function more with Him and function far less without Him. We were not made to be conformed to the norms you know. Ordinary seems fine in the world’s setting but that is not what God intended for us when He created man.
You may have been brainwashed with this saying: “being a Christian and walking steadfastly with Him doesn’t make any difference, after all even the unbelievers have it going for them; amassing wealth and fortunes”. But have you tried giving this a deeper thought and having a thorough view of this perspective. Anything without God, Christ and His spirit is all vanity. So also any life without God, as all that it is, is a mold of clay that adds no value. Absolutely none!.
We can’t rely on our mortal strength to sustain a life that was originally given unto us by the life giver Himself (God). What better way can we stay sustained if not in Him; as He definitely upholds our lot and guides our paths. He alone does sustain us.
I was prompted to check out a verse in the bible while I was headed out on a week day and it did minister to me.
Please read it also:
You’ve always given me breathing room, a place to get away from it all, A lifetime pass to your safe-house, an open invitation as your guest. You’ve always taken me seriously, God, made me welcome among those who know and love you.
Psalm 61:3-5 (MSG)
Did you read that?. God!. He has already provided all we can ever need to have rest in this world of so many trying times and troubles by staying in Him and not out of Him. We were not made to be a dog or a cat or mouse or a roach just because He had better and bigger plans for our lives. A lifetime of great depth that can only be discovered and actualised in Him.
Do read this verse:
The Lord is my chosen portion and my cup; you hold my lot. The lines have fallen for me in pleasant places; indeed, I have a beautiful inheritance.
Psalms 16:5-6 ESV
He upholds our lot!. He holds our lives (which the cup signifies) renewed as He constantly fills us up. Can you then picture an opposite of this?, the cup out of Him will definitely run dry. Yes, they might have amassed so much, all might seem fine for them on the surface. But have you taken your time to look deeper than what it seems right now?. It never lasts folks.
I’m certain we all desire a life everlasting; a life of greater calling, achievements and all. But my dear, this can only be found in and with Him.
Have you been moving on supposedly in life without Him, it’s never too late to include Him and let Him in. As He alone forms and makes the big picture. God knows you, and He is the only solution to those problems you are presently facing.
It’s a call back home to us all. Remember you are never too far into or lost in the world’s doings that He can’t save you. He still yearns to walk with you dear. He does!. His deep is calling unto yours. 🙌🙌
Do have a fulfilling week ahead folks.
