DAY 8 SUNDAY: AUGUST 2021

THE BEST OF LIFE IS FROM GOD!

The lines have fallen to me in pleasant places; yes, I have a good inheritance (Psalm 16:6).

Some persons think and believe that serving God makes life miserable. As a result of this misconception, they are scared to worship and submit their lives to God in absolute obedience in life. This misconception is demonic and satanic with the aim of putting one into perpetual bondage in life. The Bible says in the opening text that the lines have fallen to me in pleasant places; yes, I have a good inheritance. Of course, every Christian should endeavor to take note of the fact that the best of life is found in God only. Life devoid of God is absolutely boring, uninteresting and full of bondage. While life with God is absolutely very interesting, full of life in abundance and absolute freedom in Christ Jesus forever.

The best of life that one can ever think of here and even hereafter is from God in life. There is no life outside God because life is vanity outside of Him. God has stated it clearly His plan about life thus, “For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, says the Lord, thoughts of peace and not of evil, to give you a future and a hope” (Jeremiah 29:11). Therefore, God absolutely wants the best of life for you and that life of course brings peace, future and a hope for your existence.  God wished above all, the best of life you can ever imagine. Hence life in God is absolute abundant riches, glories and full of prosperities till eternity in life forever (John 10:10b).

But one thing that is very certain is that you must live a life of obedience in order for you to enjoy the best of life from God. That is the reason why the Bible says in Isaiah 1:19, “If you are willing and obedient, you shall eat the good of the land.” In fact, the good of the land and the best of life are found in Jesus Christ only and you receive them when you are willing and obedient to God’s Word in life. You can never get the best of life from God when you are disobedient and a rebel to Him in life. When you are willing and obedient, you experience the good of the land and the best of life that God Himself can give in life. The best of life in abundance and prosperity is absolutely indeed recycled in God in life forever.

Daily Tip: Life outside God is absolutely miserable, boring and vanity; therefore, be warned in life forever. Shalom!

Golden Text: But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added to you (Matthew 6:33).
