But seek his kingdom, and these things will be given to you as well. Luke 12:31That is a good question, I mean the above question in my title. Being a Christian doesn't happen because of family you were born into or because of joining a church. It is way more than that. When He, Jesus, is really first you will desire to know Him better. That means doing more than one hour Sunday.
When we know Him we need to then in turn trust Him for things in our life. Have you ever known of people who are so discouraged they wish they were already on way to Heaven, ASAP? Life does have struggles yet when we sit back and really do spiritual warfare with the enemy, things will get better. You mind should even stay on things above regardless of how you feel. Tall order, right?
Think of it like this. You and I know that Satan is the one trying his best to kill, steal, destroy, confuse, deceive, and manipulate. So when stressful times come, don't blame Him, but run to Him.
PRAYER: Lord I thank you for my life. Your plan for me is perfect and beyond understanding. Thanks for keeping me on it. In Jesus' name. Amen.
