God bless you,
This morning I want to encourage you with this; Do not settle for less than you deserve.
Prince and princess in the real life has people that serve them and respect them. Now as Christians we have Pastors, Deacons and Leaders that serve us the word, but you also have brothers and sisters that serves each other with their talents and gifts. Respect is something that God requests from us (Matthew 7:12) vs.12 says explicit “So in everything, do to others what you would have them do to you, for this sums up the Law and the Prophets.”
1 Peter 2:17 “Show proper respect to everyone, love the family of believers, fear God, honor the emperor.”
As people you should be loved for who you are, don’t permit that people love you in their own way. Don’t ever think this is what I deserve I don’t deserve better… God promised you the best. Don’t stick around because you’ll think that you are gonna stay alone. You are never alone. God has you.
Always be prepared to be moved and guided into the greater things God has in store for you. I’ll take an example out of the scripture. In Genesis 41 Bible talks about Joseph the dream interpreter. Pharaoh had been having dreams for days and no one could interpret these. So he order his people to get him Joseph so he could explain these dreams to him. Joseph told him what God meant with these dreams. This is the reason why Joseph was put in charge over Egypt. But in verse 40 bible says;”40 You shall be in charge of my palace, and all my people are to submit to your orders. Only with respect to the throne will I be greater than you.” Now God has left us in charge on this earth, we been given authority over darkness and we should do what God ordered us but always remembering that He is greater than us. He is the King of kings , The Almighty, The Strong Tower..
There is no greater God!
Well that was the story of Joseph (Joseph was taken in after his brothers throw him in the well); now this is our story. God has taken us in, we received forgiveness and He transformed us, in fact He adopted us..
Bible says in Romans 8:14-17 NIV
14 For those who are led by the Spirit of God are the children of God. 15 The Spirit you received does not make you slaves, so that you live in fear again; rather, the Spirit you received brought about your adoption to sonship.[a] And by him we cry, “Abba,[b] Father.” 16 The Spirit himself testifies with our spirit that we are God’s children. 17 Now if we are children, then we are heirs—heirs of God and co-heirs with Christ, if indeed we share in his sufferings in order that we may also share in his glory.
Hope you been blessed,
With loving regards,
