“Being asked by the Pharisees when the kingdom of God would come, he answered them, “The kingdom of God is not coming with something observable; no one will say, ‘See here! ’ or ‘There! ’ For you see, the kingdom of God is in your midst.” Luke 17:20-21
God loves our ability to remain still and quiet. It still takes a lot of practice. I can assure you that just concentrating in God and His will for us is such a challenge. I am the type of person that can’t stop talking or thinking. I am still learning, I guess that is what makes me so great at testifying and speaking about His miracles.
Nature, our Creator’s creativity just brings peace to my heart. ❤️ “But seek first the kingdom of God and his righteousness, and all these things will be provided for you.” Matthew 6:33
I am thankful because God takes one day at a time to teach us and challenge us. Choosing to seek Him first every single day is so worth it. The most incredible thing is that only through the love for others or the loved received from others is the strongest way I have Him closer to my heart these days. He knows exactly what I run away from and makes it more important for me.
God has seasons to teach you to remain quiet. God can choose another season to teach you to rest. God can also choose to teach us to remain in community. Oh wow! All I can say that for me, community is a challenge. I have made it my priority to remain alone and exclusive. Don’t know why! Maybe I can think a few reasons, but these are not worth mentioning.
So in this season I am learning how to stay in community. What a challenge! God keeps positioning me where I really do not want to be. I always knew the need for community to grow spiritually, I just did not know how much of a priority it was. So if I want to keep seeking the kingdom of God as a priority I will have to keep challenging myself to remain in community.
Please pray with me today…
