Is It Because There Is No God In You?

Day 174
Verse of the day

But the angel of the Lord said to Elijah the Tishbite, “Arise, go up to meet the messengers of the king of Samaria, and say to them, ‘Is it because there is no God in Israel that you are going to inquire of Baal-Zebub, the god of Ekron?’

2 Kings 1:3

Why do you live by the ideologies of the world? Why do you measure yourself by its standards or get involved in its rat race? Is it because there is no God in you?

Why as though seated in earthly places and not heavenly do you live subject to the cares and fears of this life? Why do you live in doubt and uncertainty of a sure future? Is it because there is no God in you?

Why as though seeing from earth’s point of view do you set your affections on things on the earth which eventually get corrupted? Why not as one seeing from heaven’s point of view pursue things incorruptible, of eternal worth, inheritances that existed long before the earth was formed and will long remain after the earth as we know it? Is it because there is no God in you?

Why do you regard the world’s wisdom above the wisdom of God? And give attention to books filled with men’s wisdom than you give to Wisdom Himself? For the decision to honor or inquire of something else above God is not merely in word or thought but in action and deed. Do you give more attention to God and His counsel than you do to the counsel of people? If so, then your desire for the approval of the audience of One would far outweigh your desire for the approval of the audience of many. Is it so beloved? Are you faithful to the God in you?

…He who is in you is greater than he who is in the world.

Dear believer, God lives in you. He is greater than the world, the universe. Do not let His Life within you lie latent, but by surrendering your life, your existence, your whole being, let Him find expression in you and eventually bring you to the place where you belong. Let Him live in you.
