The heart of anyone that values what the Father did for him will always be full of joy and sweetness because he knows he has hope beyond this Earth. And no matter what comes his way, he’ll count it for joy because he has absolute assurance that nothing can take Heaven away from him.
Many Christians are living without hope. This is why it’s very easy for them to pursue the things of this Earth and abandon their real life, which is spiritual. And anyone who values that which is physical more than that which is spiritual will perish with that which is physical. The Father created His children and gave them freedom to live their lives on Earth. And if the Spirit of the Father in you is asking more from you, that means you belong to a different set entirely, you’re not of this Earth. And if you’re not of this Earth, your attitude towards life, your character to everybody will be different. Though human beings may find it hard or difficult to understand your way of life, but you alone understand your life, and the Father understands it more than you.
If you’re of the Father, you’ll accept your life whichever way you see it. Though people may ridicule you, they may speak all manner of words against you, but you’ll be at peace because you know you’re not the first because the Saviour Himself, after His ascension to Heaven, two-thousand years apart, people still speak all manner of nonsense about Him. Does He care? He cares less because He accomplished what the Father asked Him to accomplish. He was crowned, and nobody can take it away from Him. Therefore, no matter what anyone say about you, you’ll count it as mere smoke that has no impact.
The world, the church is full of so many discouragements. Yet, those who know their Father, those who believe in their Father, those who have assurance in their Father and their Saviour will always burst into laughter because of their knowledge in the things of Heaven. Though living in this physical realm, their heart is only sorrowful whenever they come across sin because they know that that’s the only thing that can cut them short of the glory of their Father.
My beloved, let the joy of the Father always burst out from your heart because a joyful heart gives long life and healing to the bones. If you have assurance in your Father, you’ll not allow anything of this Earth to bother you. I pray for you today that Holy Spirit will fill your heart with His sweetness and remove every trace of bitterness from you in Jesus name. Amen!
