As The Flower of The Field: “Struggling Through An Unequal World”

To read part 1, click here…Today’s Devotional – March 19th (As the Flower of the Field!)

.

.

.

WOW! What a world we live in!

.

Just turn on the TV or surf through the Internet! And it doesn’t take long to realize that we live in a very unequal world! New cars we can’t possibly afford! Mansions we’ll never live in! Beautiful people we can’t possibly measure up to! Riches and wealth we could never attain! Athletes we could never compete with! Songs we could never compose! Talents we simply do not possess! Careers we could never qualify for! Vacation resorts we might never enjoy!

.

Yes, this is the world we live in!

.

Oh yes, there are those who do seem to measure up to the high standards which society exalts before our eyes each day, and before the eyes of our children. And those who do seem to live a charmed life in one way or another, give us no comfort as we struggle with our own personal inadequacies! Oh yes, we desire to be like them.

.

Even the Psalmist wrote…Psa 73:3  For I was envious…when I saw the prosperity of the wicked….Psa 73:5  They are not in trouble as other men; neither are they plagued like other men…
Psa 73:7  Their eyes stand out with fatness: they have more than heart could wish. 

Psa 73:12  Behold, these are the ungodly, who prosper in the world; they increase in riches. 

.

Yes, even this Psalmist was jealous as he looked at the charmed life of others who were not daily plagued as he was.

.

But God has not chosen the rich or the strong or the worldly wise or the mighty to be rich in faith. Listen…1Co 1:26  For ye see your calling, brethren, how that not many wise men after the flesh, not many mighty, not many noble, are called:
1Co 1:27  But God hath chosen the foolish things of the world to confound the wise; and God hath chosen the weak things of the world to confound the things which are mighty;
1Co 1:28  And base things of the world, and things which are despised, hath God chosen, yea, and things which are not, to bring to nought things that are:

.

Here we see that God exalts exactly the opposite of what the world exalts! He mostly chooses those who are not the wisest, nor the strongest, nor the most beautiful, nor the richest to be His ambassadors to this lost world.

.

But the unseen rulers of this evil and selfish world do just the opposite of God. They instead choose the wisest, the strongest, the most beautiful, the most talented, the wittiest, and the richest to be Lucifer’s spokespeople, and his role-models to the onlooking world!

.

And so, why should we be surprised when we turn on our high-tech devices, only to discover that it’s filled with such fortunate ones: the winners in life?

.

Well, the extremely Good News is that those who have had their eyes opened to Heaven’s Truth are actually the richest of the rich! This is because, they possess the unspeakable riches of eternal life, and true wisdom which the unsaved world cannot know, nor comprehend! And among those heavenly riches are the virtues of sympathy and Christlike compassion for those who prosper in this world, but are nor rich toward God! Yes, while we once envied those whom the world considers to be its ‘crème-de-la-crème’, we now have only pity for them! And we constantly pray that they too might escape this eternal graveyard, called Planet Earth, in which all lost souls will be merely return to dust-in-the-wind for all eternity.

.

.

Of course, these inequities only cause the unsaved to strive to be among the best-of-the-best. And let’s face it, these high-tech devices are the present-day means of causing the world to bow down to this supreme ruler of darkness, the False Prophet, Lucifer, now called The Devil and Satan! Yes, Satan has now manifested himself as the False Prophet of Revelation 13 & 17, as he uses these devices to deceive, captivate, ensnare the lost citizens of this world, as well as naïve/unlearned Christians.

“Dear Lord, Help me to be an open-minded seeker of truth, even if it means giving up a very highly regarded Church opinion! Let me be willing to investigate any seemingly new teaching if it appears to have some biblical validity…

FINALLY WALKING UPWARD INTO THE HIGHWAYS OF ETERNITY

.

Day by day, you will find yourself walking, like the Disciples, spreading the precious Gospel seed wherever the Spirit leads.

.

Taking the lovely name of Jesus, with every word spoken. Walking through this sin-darkened world, witnessing to those who take notice that of a truth, Jesus is present within you. Even like faithful Enoch, walking through the highways and byways of life in this world, spreading the Gospel-seed of unpretentious love.

.

Day by day, you will become more and more closed in with God. Moment by moment, your heart will become intertwined with God’s heart, eventually two hearts beating as one heart.

.

And just like Enoch, when the appointed time of sojourning on earth is finally done…you will walk onward…and upward…and into the highways and byways of eternity. (“And Enoch walked with God: and he was not; for God took him.” Genesis 5:24).
