Children of God Do Not Live in Fear
When we hear the words, that God says His Ways are not of the World’s Ways, but beyond them….what does that mean to you? Well, to me, if the Father of Creation created all things…then He obviously does not define Himself or His Ways, by that which His Creations define Him, or them, as. Why would the Creator be under the authority of His Creation?
“The closer to the Mission of Christ, the more hated and despised you will by the world.”- Pastor David Wilkerson.
If we are truly doing the ministry to that which Jesus Christ commissioned to His Disciples, just as His Disciples were, we will find trials and hardships. We will even find many enemies and people who just genuinely do not like you. So will you fear taking Jesus Christ as your Life Example? To unconditionally love, even those that do not like you…or do not have your best interests at heart. This is the very thing that Jesus Christ not only preached through His Words, but also through the actions of His Life, to the point of His Death on the Cross. Our words and our very presence should exude that very unconditional love that Jesus Christ demonstrated on the Cross, at Calvary. This is how we know that the Divine Laws of Unconditional Love have taken root within a soul. God calls out such people and souls, to do such things….to spread this unconditional love….the very same that Jesus Christ demonstrated to the point of Death to His Earthly Body. This is what surrendering to the Lordship of Jesus Christ, is.
The world does not hate its own. This what we have to remember. And God says His Ways are not of the World’s. And if this is the case, that God’s Children will be hated…..so how strong is your faith these days? If Jesus Christ Himself was hated to the point of being put to death, for no good reason…what makes you think you are exempt of such things, if the Son of God was not? Your success in ministry is not determined by earthly measures, but seen and defined by Divine measures.
“What shall we say in response to all this, if God is for us, whom shall we fear in being against us.” -Romans 8:31
How do we know that God is for us? If we wholeheartedly chase after Him, and His Divine Laws of Love. Evil will try to throw us off the path, by trying to bring us to earthly measures, to measure our success both in the earthly and spiritual sense. Evil will try to make your soul dependent on what the body feeds and nourishes itself on. Evil wants you to react and act on your human emotion; and not to depend on the Divine leading of the Holy Spirit.
However, when we believe in a God who says that His Ways are beyond those of this world; and to which He defines as Unconditional Love, Nonviolence, and Mercy….we see that there is no fear in the earthly sense for anything. Because we have the confidence that the God we serve is beyond the world’s ways.
