Season of Advent. I absolutely love this time of year and felt compelled to spend more time posting over the next few weeks to bring some GLORY to the beautiful days of Advent!!! Short, sweet and to the point so everyone can ‘have time’ to read!
So today, I’m going to keep it real simple and say this: a King is coming!
Of course this time of year that’s an obvious statement. Referring to the birth of Jesus. But what about every other day and month of the year—do we stop to remember that? Imagine what could happen if we kept that type of a Kingdom focus? Because His word says He is indeed coming back again one day. This time not as a baby in a manger either. But like Matthew 24 states, like lightning and with great power and glory.
So let’s challenge ourselves to be a people who stop complaining, who remember how much we’ve been given (and not just in the material sense either) and rise up! Side note here: I know I’ve mentioned it before, but do you know how dangerous complaining is? Take it from someone who has worldly permission to complain about the things I have gone through and experienced in life. Complaint won’t do me any good—or those around me. Not to mention it is one of the greatest schemes of the enemy of our soul to try and keep us from fulfilling God’s intended purpose in our life. Experiencing grief is one thing. Complaining is something completely different.
What if there was a new golden rule that says, if you’re going to complain about something—YOU have to be the one to come up with a solution. And can I tell you something, we humans…don’t have all the solutions…but there is ONE who does!
So let’s be a people who know WHO Christ is and want our lives to be a reflection of Him. Let’s be a people who always remember, A KING IS COMING!!!
42“So you, too, must keep watch! For you don’t know what day your Lord is coming. 43Understand this: If a homeowner knew exactly when a burglar was coming, he would keep watch and not permit his house to be broken into. 44You also must be ready all the time, for the Son of Man will come when least expected. Matthew 24:42-44
