Day 148- Richmond, Virginia: Look No Further
We search and search for answers as a community of God in order to be considered a faithful servant. Most days we stop to ponder and think of ways that we can serve God without being consider an outcast for not doing an adequate job. How do we overcome the fear of not being good enough or not being worthy of what God gives us in excess every day? We have to look no further than right in front of us, because God gives us the tools to find our way even when it seems that the light is being turned off all around us by lucifer.
No man or woman should ever live his or her lives in fear or in a state of panic. God understands our pain, and Jesus actually suffered a fate far worse than most of us will ever come close to experiencing. What happened when Jesus was alone and tempted in the desert? He prayed to God. What happened when Jesus was alone in the garden praying before He was betrayed? He prayed to God. What happened when Jesus saw the sins of those he harmed him? He prayed to God and asked Him to forgive those whom harmed Him, because they did not know what they were doing.
In every situation that Jesus was faced with an unknown, He prayed to His Father in Heaven, the same God that we also worship and adore as Christians through our prayers. It takes a concentrated effort for us to put to the side our pride, to understand that God is with us every step of the way. Life is full of disappointment and joy. Will we be remembered for the love that we shared with others or will we be remembered for the selfishness of our ways? We have the ability to talk to God in many ways that allows us to inspire others for His glory. It is not about us all of the time. Rather it is about the way that we treat others and the way that we impact the world we live in for God’s glory.
