What a blessed day it is! Let us be reminded that it is always WHO over WHAT in this life. The WHO is all about the person or people that you are dealing with. People who know, trust, and truly rely on God will always be above any circumstance. All things are possible with God. (Matt 19:26)
People who are living, moving, and having their being in God (Acts 17:28) are able to overcome whatever they are faced with in every circumstance. In fact they bring to bear the highest and best results from God when they are pressed on every side, because they know that God’s grace is sufficient for them and His power is made perfect in their human weakness. (2 Cor 12:9) You know WHO is with God by the quality of their fruit. (Matt 7:15-20)
It is unwise and dangerous to favor and attach yourself to people based on WHAT you think they can do for you without giving consideration to WHO they truly are in God. While the resources they have that you covet may seem so near, you will wear yourself out and still be unfruitful trying to attain them because their hearts are so far from God. Sure, their words seem to be with you. (Psalm 55:21) Yes, it all makes sense for what you want and even what you have been praying for. But don’t let your desire, even in the pursuit of godly matters, position you as prey to the one who devours. (1 Peter 5:8)
Let us be reminded today of the word of God in 1 John 4:4-6
“You are of God, little children, and have overcome them, because He who is in you is greater than he who is in the world. They are of the world. Therefore they speak as of the world, and the world hears them. We are of God. He who knows God hears us; he who is not of God does not hear us. By this we know the spirit of truth and the spirit of error.”
Declare this today:
I will fully consider who over what I am dealing with.
