A King and Priest ?

Why is it that as humans when we face an impossibility: When trouble comes and we are hard pressed on all sides. By people and doubt and by very real looking circumstances.
We let slip the one thing that would ensure us complete and total victory ?
 The one thing that is essential to life.
 The one thing that is needful.
Humans are a most pitiable race,
 we have this ability to forget things very easily when something bigger takes predominance in our senses.
For instance say you have some pain somewhere in your body, and thats grating on you its annoying, and you just cant get it off your mind. Now say you hurt yourself somewhere else really bad, if that new hurt is greater than your old pain, whats happened to it ? Its most likely all but forgotten.
I've had this happen to me countless times. Your worried about something, your struggling and striving to find some way or some answer,  and everything else slips. Its as if your minds can only hold one important thing at a time.
We forget things easily when were sidetracked with something much grander. In a good or bad way.
We forget to enjoy each and every day, we forget to look people in the eye and get ourselves off our minds for more than a second. We forget to trust the creator of the universe because the mountain seems too high to climb even by the one who created mountains. And can pluck those mountain up like a pebble and toss them to where He wills. And with His help so can we.

I wont lie life's been tough lately, for a lot of people and around here too. It just is that way living on this planet.
But those of us who know better should not let trouble sway our spirit.
The Bible says we are not mere men, we are spirit born spirit led beings with dual citizenship.
One foot in the heavenly kingdom which was born within us when we were born again, and one foot in "reality"
A place that is less real than the unseen kingdom within us. We look at natural things and believe just because we see, we say we know because we can touch and feel that thing our physical senses say its real.
But what if I told you we are living in a dream, a dream where nightmares exist, where sadness and trouble don't just live under your bed. But dominate a lot of your life trying to back you into a corner by making you believe that they are tangible creatures and not just shadows of something weak and small.

When you have a nightmare, what do you do ? you wake up, heart beating wildly breath coming is gasps, every fiber of your sweat drenched boys feeling like you just fought a battle that only existed in your mind.
Its the same for us in what I will call the dream reality. What we see is real, there are real troubles and real decisions, we face foes and battles that we must take part in.
But don't get hung up on that battle. You have already been ensured a win, because you are being enabled by Him who already won. We must remember not to illuminate the trouble, making it the dominating thought of our mind. We must wake up from the dream we have been living in.
Instead illuminate the WORD Gods, Word and what it says about you the born again new creation, who has been crowned a King and Priest of this realms of dreams.
All is smoke and shadow, and the truth is we are already made crowned a winner in this life, it came as a gift from someone who sacrificed all He had to get you that crown.
So, begin to live like you are a king. Because you are. Begin to set aside time in the WORD.
The one thing that is needful. Learn your rights of heavenly citizenship, by immersing ourselves with the word and with positive things in order for the trouble that seems so huge to shrink.

the BIBLE says in
 Proverbs 4:20-22
My son, pay attention to what I say; turn your ear to my words.
 Do not let them out of your sight,
keep them within your heart;
for they are life to those who find them
and health to one’s whole body.
Whats it saying ? Attend to the words of the father, listen to them give your attention to Him and nothing else concerning that situation. For therein is life, in God there is life. 
Jesus removed the curse from your life, He has made all things new.
 I want to encourage you today to keep your eyes and heart on something far more greater than any problem. keep your eyes on Jesus, on His words and precious promises to you. Let him show you just how tiny and insignificant those troubles are, waves don't seem very big in a bathtub. He's greater than and storm raging. 
Don't compromise the only thing that your life needs to be successful, by forgetting to look at Him, and not around in distress. If you do that long enough, one day you will look and the shadows will be gone because they have been overtaken by the light of Gods Love and you'll not struggle with that problem any more. Something Far greater has become more important to you.

  1. It is very nice to have reminders like this. Right now I needed one as there is so much going on in my life right now and so much doubt I am facing. I need to remember to keep my eyes on Him and my eternal home

    1. I know how hard it really is to do that, life is so strange sometimes. I'll be praying for you.
