My brother, my sister, the Holy Spirit in you made you the church of Christ. By definition, a church is ‘ekklesia’, which means “the called out ones”. This means that we are called by God. Remember, God said, “What agreement has the temple of God with idols? For we are the temple of the living God; as God said, “I will make my dwelling among them and walk among them, and I will be their God, and they shall be my people”(2 Corinthians 6:16).
My friend, this prophecy has already occurred and God dwells in everyone who believes in Christ. So how can we be the carriers of the greatest power, the power of God, and sometimes feel miserable, hopeless or depressed? In the face of trials, in particular in the face of what we are experiencing at the moment around the world, we must remember, meditate and value these words spoken by our God: “I will be their God and they will be my people”.
Yes, may God be your God again today, for He has done His part and He has not changed His mind. Therefore, stop making your situation your god! Stop making the world economy that is in ruins your god! Stop making what you hear or read in the media your god! Wake up from that spiritual lethargy that is imposed on you by the world and makes you forget what your God, the Holy One of Israel and your Creator says to the world about you: “How dare you question Me concerning My sons, or instruct Me about the work of My hands?” (Isaiah 45:11). Yes, no one will determine your future because the world is going bad, in the name of Jesus.
Today, wake up from that sleep inflicted to you by your everyday life and instead ask the Holy Spirit to help you, guide you and lead you towards living a more Christ-filled life. The more you see things like Christ, the more you will understand that there is no reason to worry about anything that is happening in the world, because the hand of God is at work in your life and it is not short. Stay blessed in Jesus’ name.
