Today Reminder - 10 October 2013 (Day 8 - Living in the Kingdom)

A reminder for today
“But as for you, be strong and courageous, for your work will be rewarded." (2 Chronicles 15:7)

I find myself this morning in a place where I realise once more that living in the kingdom of God is not an easy task. Carrying His Word and living a life that honours His name is difficult. People have this way of making things harder at times and I guess our own inability to remain focussed on the Lord and His voice can have negative results. 

We could often feel that we are fighting a lost cause and that people so easily accept the side of darkness and rarely seek God’s way. Our own self is the cause of so many problems and issues in our lives and our selfishness can break down relationships and cause unnecessary pain. 

I think that most of our issues are purely because we are too proud and too selfish in situations and often will not accept that we could be wrong or that we are wrong. I am thinking about Jesus and how He humbled Himself and became human so that He could give us what we could not achieve by ourselves. How much more should we humble ourselves for the kingdom of God so that we can show the light or be the light in dark situations or among those that find it difficult to see the light and change their ways.

The Holy Spirit is telling you and me today that we should be strong and courageous, because even though it might feel that you are fighting an endless fight, your work will be rewarded. Hearts will change and walls will crumble. Nothing is impossible for the Lord and He will break the barriers and set the captive hearts free.

Don’t give up!

Have and awesome day dear friend of Jesus
