It's good to learn the ways of the world, but it's not wise to submit to its demands
THERE’S a story of three blind men who once visited the zoo and they all wanted to see the elephant. The elephant was brought to them and being blind, they could only touch it in order to experience what an elephant is. One touched the trunk, the other touched the ear and another touched the body. The one by the trunk said, “An elephant is a huge heavy pipe,” the one by the ear said, “An elephant is a big blanket,” and the one by the body said, “An elephant is a huge rock.” The truth is they only had a limited experience and not a complete view of the elephant.
BELIEVE IN YOUR POSITION IN GOD
In the Bible, 1 John 5:4-5 says, “For everyone born of God overcomes the world. This is the victory that has overcome the world, even our faith. Who is it that overcomes the world? Only the one who believes that Jesus is the Son of God.”
Isaiah 35:8 says, “A highway will be there yes, there and people will call it ‘The Holy Way’. As for unclean people, they will not journey on it, but it will be for whomever is traveling on that Way— not even fools will get lost.”
I dare you to believe in your position in God. Whoever is born of God should not doubt His nature, which is planted in you, at your rebirth.
WE ARE KINGDOM AMBASSADORS
Confess and say I am born of God, I am a new creature and the old me has passed away. This declares that your calling is for higher living.
It is good to learn the ways of the world, however, it’s not wise to submit to its demands.
Remember, we are kingdom ambassadors. Above all else, our assignment is clear, we are here to colonise every nation and turn it to a kingdom of God, one person, one city and one nation at a time.
BE A BELIEVER
Victory over the world will only come through believers who will not succumb to any laws of the world.
Be willing to put God's word into practise. Nothing and no one will ever understand the depth of wisdom vested in you by God.
So having learned or read any world information, choose to still believe the word. Introduce the world to greater wisdom.
