What’s The Matter With You

26 Mar

What’s The Matter With You…

Imagine a penniless orphan beggar child on the streets, and a very wealthy king decides to take him/her off the streets into his palace and adopt the beggar as a child, as a prince or princess.

Then, he throws a huge banquet for the child, but the child goes around to each table, begging for food. And the king would say to the child, “What’s the matter with you? I’ve adopted you. Why are you begging for scraps? There is a banquet for you. It’s all yours.”

That’s exactly how most believers live. The Lord has taken us off the streets, out of spiritual poverty, taken us into His mansion, and adopted us as children of the King. But we are still living as if we were on the streets begging for scraps of acceptance, love, and joy, and we’re still clinging to these things in fear of losing everything.

It’s really God saying, ‘Why are you begging? There’s a banquet for you. I adopted you.” So stop living in fear; stop living in selfishness. You are not a beggar or an orphan. You are a child of the King. Start living like it!

You, dear children,  are from God and have overcome them because the one who is in you is greater than the one who is in the world. 1 John 4:4

In what way are you still living as one who is poor, or needy, or unloved, or fearful, or a beggar. Start living as who you are in God, blessed and beloved.

Walk daily with God at your side!

Love always,

Ed
