There's so much more to life than what brings us low and keeps us trapped in a box. It's not about how big the problem is but how much greater the solution is.
"Because the one who is in you is greater than the one who is in the world (1 John 4:4)."
And there is so much more to life than chasing after things or people we think we need more than God. It's not about the clothing, make up, talents, intelligence, eloquence or anything a person might possess in this world, but the character and power he/she has without it. It's not about what kind of house one might have, but what and who is in it. It's not about what kind of car a person might drive, but where the path is heading. It's not about how much money any person can make but how long it can really last.
"For, “All people are like grass, and all their glory is like the flowers of the field; the grass withers and the flowers fall, but the word of the Lord endures forever.” And this is the word that was preached to you (1 Peter 1:24-25)."
It's not about what's on the outside that matters most in life, but what's on the inside. And when the Spirit of Lord lives in you greater will not come to you, but out of you!
"What we have received is not the spirit of the world, but the Spirit who is from God, so that we may understand what God has freely given us (1 Cor 2:12)." "The Lord is the Spirit, and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is freedom (2 Cor 3:17)." "The Spirit gives life; the flesh counts for nothing (John 6:63)."
Prayer (Say This Out Loud): God I come to you in the name of Jesus with a heart of repentance. Today, I acknowledge that I am imperfect and I need you to reign in heart to help me turn away from my old ways of living to commit my life to Christ. I know that my sinful nature has to decrease so that you can increase in every area of my life. Reveal what I should remove from my life so that I can make room for the Holy Spirit to guide and empower me to live a greater lifestyle for your glory. Amen!
