I am so full from watching Hamilton.
What if we cared about the Kingdom as we do about the world?
There is still unrest in the country as some of us celebrate the fourth of July.
Words are getting strung together, “We are not free, until we are all free.”
and it makes me wonder how would that look like in the Kingdom of God.
What if we said about Salvation,
“We cannot stop until everyone has heard the Gospel of Peace.”
What if we fought for the lost just as much as we fight for the freedom?
What if we really saw ourselves in heavenly places?
Because in the world,
everything seems muddled and confused.
And no one can make sense of it.
Wouldn’t it be easier to separated ourselves from the worldly way of thinking
and see it from Heaven’s perspective.
Away from the confusion and the opinions of others.
Asking the Father to see things from His eyes.
When we look at the problem we tend to only see what is in front of us.
We see the branches that are in our sights
and we start to chop them back,
thinking that will solve the problem.
We don’t even think about uprooting the tree.
Now another question presents itself, what is the root?
The root will always be the lie of the enemy.
The lie that has taken root in hearts.
“You are not enough. You are not strong enough.”
But that’s not what your Father says,
Since you were precious in My sight, You have been honored, And I have loved you; Therefore I will give men for you, And people for your life.Isaiah 43:4
For I am persuaded that neither death nor life, nor angels nor principalities nor powers, nor things present nor things to come, nor height nor depth, nor any other created thing, shall be able to separate us from the love of God which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.Romans 8:38-39
“How then shall they call on Him in whom they have not believed? And how shall they believe in Him of whom they have not heard? How shall they hear without someone to proclaim? And how can they deliver the message, that is the Gospel of Good News, unless they are sent? As it is written: ‘How beautiful are the feet of those who preach and proclaim the gospel of peace, who bring, glad tidings of good things.’”Romans 10:14-15
“Dying is easy,… living is harder.”
“There’s a million things, I haven’t done.”
“Why do you write like you’re running out of time?”
“How do you write like tomorrow won’t arrive?”
“How do you write like you need it to survive?”
“This is not a moment, it’s a movement.”
