If you aren’t certain, pay attention to the thoughts that run through your mind and also the things you say, especially when stressed, tired or angry. A good man out of the good treasure of his heart brings forth good; and an evil man out of the evil treasure of his heart brings forth evil. For out of the abundance of the heart his mouth speaks. Luke 6:45
When you are living by the Lord God’s principles, you are living by His Constitution. His Word is His Truth, and an attribute of the Holy Spirit, our Governor. Ambassador Paul, speaking to the Kingdom citizens in Ephesus, made this statement: For you were once darkness, but now you are light in the Lord. Walk as children of light (for the fruit of the Spirit is in all goodness, righteousness, and truth), finding out what is acceptable to the Lord. Ephesians 5:8-10
When you walk in the Spirit, you are walking in His Word. It is the Spirit who gives life; the flesh profits nothing. The words that I speak to you are spirit, and they are life. John 6:63 Remember that the Lord God’s Constitution is relevant in every part of your life. It is eternal Truth. It is unchanging. Yes, God’s Word is truth and will last forever. As King Jesus said, “Heaven and earth will pass away, but My words will by no means pass away.” Mark 13:31 Even back in the time of Isaiah, His representative, the Lord God gave him these words of encouragement: “Comfort, yes, comfort My people!” says your God.
“Speak comfort to Jerusalem, and cry out to her, that her warfare is ended, that her iniquity is pardoned; for she has received from the Lord’s hand double for all her sins.”
The voice of one crying in the wilderness: “Prepare the way of the Lord; make straight in the desert; A highway for our God. Every valley shall be exalted and every mountain and hill brought low; The crooked places shall be made straight and the rough places smooth.
The glory of the Lord shall be revealed, and all flesh shall see it together; for the mouth of the Lord has spoken.”
The voice said, “Cry out!” and he said, “What shall I cry?”
All flesh is grass, and all its loveliness is like the flower of the field. The grass withers, the flower fades, because the breath of the Lord blows upon it; Surely the people are grass. The grass withers, the flower fades, but the Word of our God stands forever.” Isaiah 40:1-8
Keep in mind that the King’s Word is truth and it will never fail.
How easily influenced are you? Can ‘friends’ talk you into doing things the Holy Spirit, our Kingdom Governor, is telling you NOT to do?
As a Kingdom citizen, be careful with whom you associate in this present world. Yes, we are to represent Jesus and His Kingdom in the world, but we must not be influenced or changed by this world. Be aware of what worldviews you may be embracing that are contrary to the Lord God’s Word. If they don’t have a Kingdom mindset and you have confidence in them, they can block you from receiving the truth concerning the Kingdom, especially if they have a religious mindset. Keep your heart with all diligence, for out of it spring the issues of life. Proverbs 4:23 There are many religious leaders who do not have a Kingdom mindset and are not led by the Holy Spirit, our Governor. It is how they earn their living and may be most concerned with the paycheck. If so, they are a hireling. There are many who are of this world and are led by greed and all things of the flesh. They are full of this world and its corrupted mindset with no room left for the Kingdom message and the Lord God’s infallible Truth. While King Jesus was here on this earth, He made this statement to the religious leaders of His day, concerning His people. “I know that you are Abraham’s descendants, but you seek to kill Me, because My Word has no place in you. I speak what I have seen with My Father, and you do what you have seen with your father. They answered and said to Him, “Abraham is our father.”
Jesus said to them, “If you were Abraham’s children, you would do the works of Abraham. But now you seek to kill Me, a Man who has told you the truth which I heard from God. Abraham did not do this… Why do you not understand My speech? Because you are not able to listen to My Word. You are of your father the devil, and the desires of your father you want to do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and does not stand in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaks a lie, he speaks from his own resources, for he is a liar and the father of it. But because I tell the truth, you do not believe Me. Which of you convicts Me of sin? And if I tell the truth, why do you not believe Me? He who is of God hears God’s Words; therefore you do not hear, because you are not of God.” John 8:37-40, 43-47
When your life and mind are full of this world’s activities, there is very little room for the Kingdom Gospel, which is the Truth found in God’s Constitution. There are many people who are led by their own spirit and the “devil’s desires”. Keep in mind that the evil one will do everything in his power to keep you from knowing and accepting the Truth of God’s Word and His Kingdom because he knows that his time isn’t long here on this earth.
Remember the Lord God’s Word is always relevant to a citizen of His Kingdom. We as Kingdom citizens live by the Constitution of the Kingdom. It is our daily guide to living in this world without being OF this world! King David made these statements: As for God, His way is perfect; the Word of the Lord is proven; He is a shield to all who trust in Him…For the Word of the Lord is right, and all His work is done in truth…By the Word of the Lord the heavens were made, and all the host of them by the breath of His mouth. Psalm 18:30, 33:4, 6
When you are filled with His Truth, you become bold in your faith in the King. The Word of the Lord God causes you to become courageous and have no fear. King David made this statement for all to learn: Whenever I am afraid, I will trust in You. In God (I will praise His Word), In God I have put my trust; I will not fear. What can flesh do to me? Psalm 56:3-4
Now picture a direct cable linking you to your tablet, phone, computer or television and everything you see and hear is being directly downloaded into your brain and your soul, leaving no room for God’s Word. It is time to clear your mind, your will and your emotions and make room for God’s Truth. Unplug, disconnect and reevaluate good and bad associations in your life. Pray for the Governor’s guidance in the process. Make room today.
How can a young person stay pure? By obeying your Word.
I have tried hard to find You—don’t let me wander from Your commands.
I have hidden Your Word in my heart, that I might not sin against You.
I praise You, O Lord; teach me Your decrees.
I have recited aloud all the regulations You have given us.
I have rejoiced in Your laws as much as in riches.
I will study Your commandments and reflect on Your ways.
I will delight in Your decrees and not forget Your Word. Psalm 119:9-16 NLT
Keep in mind, once again, your faith in the King’s Word is your greatest asset in the Kingdom!
