But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you. (KJV)
Your earthly rank or title has little meaning if you are not right with the Father. Who do you think will rate more favor with Him: the ungodly CEO, who only wants others to serve him/her, or the godly janitor, who finds satisfaction in the service of others? One would do well to remember the words of 1 Samuel 2:7 The LORD maketh poor, and maketh rich: he bringeth low, and lifteth up. Be satisfied with who and what you are and not who, or what, you think others feel you should be.
Our Heavenly Father,
Thank You for this day and all of Your blessings in our lives. Abba Lord, have Your Holy Spirit teach us how to be satisfied with who we are in this life. Let us be content with whatever station in life You see fit to place us. Let us not be envious of others or their perceived status. Give us the contentment of knowing that to serve others and spreading Your word is the greatest position of all.
We lift this prayer up to You in the Name of Your Son, Jesus the Christ...Amen.
Good morning to one and all. My thoughts and prayers are with you and yours for a safe and wonder-filled day.
May God Bless,
VOD 06/15/12: Donít Worry About Your Status.
