"You are no longer outsiders-exiles, migrants and aliens, excluded from the rights of citizens; but you now share citizenship with the saints-God's own people, consecrated and set apart for Himself; and you belong to God's [own] household." Ephesians 2:19 AMP
How did it get to be March 1? This year is moving too fast for me. The best thing for me to do is sit back, and recall all that He has done in the past few months.
My daughter Stephanie was diagnosed with ADHD and is on medication for this. We are seeing a huge change in her after 6 years of slump in school, and others places. She is able to think clearly, and focus for the first time. Who knew? God did and he hear our prayer.
Praising God brings us perspective like nothing else. We see eternal blessings, and we realize this world is not forever. All that can get us worried will be gone tomorrow.
I am so glad that I am not an outsider to the Kingdom of God. Being included into the biggest family of all time can be rather special. You won't get birthday cards from everyone, but that's a good thing. The Post Office would be overcome with all the postage.
You won't know all of their names. All of us will not fit into any conference center, so we won't get to meet every one. The body of believers that inhabit the earth today is growing at a fast rate, with countries like Iran leading the race. Thousands of underground churches are meeting on a regular basis, and lives are being transformed! Even the most devout are feeling the emptiness of their religion, and turning to the One True God.
He is not a religion, He is The Lord God Almighty, who was and who is and who is to come. Revelation 1:8 Who can stop the Lord Almighty are the lyrics to a popular song. He will have his way, and his plans no one can control.
It is far better to get on the Lord's side because when He returns, no one will be able to stand in his presence.The family of God has all sorts of people, from all over the world. We are gathered at the foot of the cross in unity and love. Thank God for His love for you!
