We didn’t have much time to be bored when we were kids. Between hop scotch, bicycle riding, practicing to be cheerleaders on our front lawns and playing hide and seek we were busy. Kids stayed outside a lot when I was young and we had fantastic imaginations. We were busy being kids and promoting our lives as children. It was exciting and fun to be a kid. Inactivity wasn’t generally involved. We were never entertained by adults and rarely by the tv.
Boredom in the faith is not an option. There is enough activity in the Spirit and enough Word to learn about the Lord that we will stay busy our whole lives just getting to know Christ and the power of His Resurrection. Inactivity in the faith life will cause us to desire to be entertained. But our walk with Christ is alive and active and abundant in joy.
Oh beloved, God wants you to know this morning that His cure for boredom is to follow Christ! Not just believe in Him but to give up our right to be entertained for His right to lead us into all Truth! This life of faith is exciting and enthralling! Better than a movie, we are moving into the greatest times we’ve ever known. As children of God and partakers of the divine nature you and I will be busy for the rest of our lives getting to know our Father, following our Savior and being filled with His Holy Spirit. Inactivity is our enemy when it comes to faith.
You are called beloved, to be actively pursuing God all the days of your life! Yes there are dangers, toils and snares along the way. But you’ve been called to freedom. You are called to be His ambassador as you go! And God promotes divine appointments just for you! He says you are a royal diadem in His hand! You are a world changer in His Spirit! As you pray for the world, pray for the leaders, pray for your family and pray for yourself, the atmosphere changes all around you. Even though you may be going through persecution, condemnation, rejection and more, you aren’t settling there. You are going through! God has promised that everywhere you step is territory given to you! This is family territory as well! You are designed by supernatural nature to take back the land the enemy has stolen from you. This includes your family holdings. Pray in the Spirit, watch for the Spirit to move and rejoice and thank Him as He does what only He can do! The higher your activity in the faith, the more you will see Spiritual activity in the heavenlies. Literally the Kingdom of heaven will come to earth and His will is going to be done in the lives of all you pray for, talk to and share Jesus with!
God loves you and He’s for you! These are exciting times indeed! Enjoy your life of faith, stay active and be willing. God will put you where He needs you and give you seasons of refreshing for your own life as you live in the Light of His Wonderful plan!
