As a citizen, always stay focused on His Word. His Word is the foundation on which our faith is built. It is your faith that pleases the King, not your sacrifice or doing good works while here on this earth. Your faith in His Word will drive you to search and seek out all you can about the will of the King for your life. Now may the God of peace who brought up our Lord Jesus from the dead, that great Shepherd of the sheep, through the blood of the everlasting covenant, make you complete in every good work to do His will, working in you what is well pleasing in His sight, through Jesus Christ, to whom be glory forever and ever. Amen. Hebrews 13:20-21
When you are led by the Holy Spirit—our Kingdom Governor—you are forever protected. Some will embrace this but others are blinded to it. If you are being guided by our Governor, you can never be misled or misguided. I can speak of this because I am an example of this and have experienced it! I am a living example, you can reference to. I wasn’t always like this but when I allowed the Word to lead and guide me, my life changed. Therefore, dear brothers and sisters, you have no obligation to do what your sinful nature urges you to do. For if you live by its dictates, you will die. But if through the power of the Spirit you put to death the deeds of your sinful nature, you will live. For all who are led by the Spirit of God are children of God. Romans 8:12-14 NLT If we live in the Spirit, let us also walk in the Spirit. Galatians 5:25
When Abraham obeyed the Lord God’s word, His protection came with that obedience. Abraham believed the Lord God. By faith Abraham obeyed when he was called to go out to the place which he would receive as an inheritance. And he went out, not knowing where he was going. By faith he dwelt in the land of promise as in a foreign country, dwelling in tents with Isaac and Jacob, the heirs with him of the same promise; for he waited for the city which has foundations, whose builder and maker is God. Hebrews 11:8-10 It was because of Abraham’s faith and obedience that the Gentile has become part of the family and are citizens of the King.
The Lord had said to Abram, “Leave your native country, your relatives, and your father’s family, and go to the land that I will show you. I will make you into a great nation. I will bless you and make you famous, and you will be a blessing to others. I will bless those who bless you and curse those who treat you with contempt. All the families on earth will be blessed through you.” Genesis 12:1-3 NLT
When you stay in the Lord God’s Constitution and fill yourself up with His Word, you can say just as King David said, “I have been young, and now am old; Yet I have not seen the righteous forsaken, Nor his descendants begging bread.” Psalm 37:25
If you are worried about the food shortages we are having in this world’s government systems and you are a Kingdom citizen, my question to you is, “Why are you concerned or worried?”. Why concern yourself with the troubles of this present world? Where is your faith in your Lord and King? What kingdom fills your mind? Make up your mind where your faith is and what you really believe. “So fear the Lord and serve Him wholeheartedly. Put away forever the idols your ancestors worshiped when they lived beyond the Euphrates River and in Egypt. Serve the Lord alone. But if you refuse to serve the Lord, then choose today whom you will serve. Would you prefer the gods your ancestors served beyond the Euphrates? Or will it be the gods of the Amorites in whose land you now live? But as for me and my family, we will serve the Lord.” Joshua 24:14-15 NLT
Stand on the King’s promises! Psalm 91 A thousand may fall at your side, and ten thousand at your right hand; but it shall not come near you. Only with your eyes shall you look, and see the reward of the wicked. Because you have made the Lord, who is my refuge, even the Most High, your dwelling place, no evil shall befall you, nor shall any plague come near your dwelling; For He shall give His angels charge over you, to keep you in all your ways. In their hands they hall bear you up, lest you dash your foot against a stone. (vs 7-12)
When you feel doubt and fear, get into His Word and remind yourself of who He is and all of His commands to His citizens. “Therefore I say to you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or what you will drink; nor about your body, what you will put on. Is not life more than food and the body more than clothing? Look at the birds of the air, for they neither sow nor reap nor gather into barns; yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not of more value than they? Which of you by worrying can add one cubit to his stature?
“So why do you worry about clothing? Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow: they neither toil nor spin; and yet I say to you that even Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these. Now if God so clothes the grass of the field, which today is, and tomorrow is thrown into the oven, will He not much more clothe you, O you of little faith?
“Therefore do not worry, saying, ‘What shall we eat?’ or ‘What shall we drink?’ or ‘What shall we wear?’ For after all these things the Gentiles seek. For your heavenly Father knows that you need all these things. But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added to you. Matthew 6:25-33
And the Lord will deliver me from every evil work and preserve me for His heavenly Kingdom. 2 Timothy 4:18
In Your strength I can crush an army; with my God I can scale any wall. God’s way is perfect. All the Lord’s promises prove true. He is a shield for all who look to Him for protection. For who is God except the Lord? Who but our God is a solid rock? God arms me with strength and He makes my way perfect. Psalm 18:29-32 NLT
Remember, your faith in the Lord God’s Word is your greatest asset in His Kingdom. It is your greatest defense against the things of this world!
