So… what exactly can I say, that would be powerful enough to cause any person to really believe that they could experience a royal life? What could I tell you to change in your beliefs, that may be keeping you from the amazing promises of God?
Here is today’s focus for living a Royal Life.
I have asked the LORD for one thing; one thing only do I want: to live in the LORD ‘s house all my life, to marvel there at his goodness, and to ask for his guidance. (GNB)
When I read the Old Testament, I realized that people centuries ago, then and now, were instructed by the actions of their ancestors, in how and what God they should worship in order to have a life filled with peace and safety. They had their spiritual leaders advise them as to which God they should believe in. So, they ended up with many gods. One god for this and another for that. These gods came through the traditional ways of their family and homelands. They were taught that every land and its people has its own gods. So, to continue to have everything they needed to live free of curses. They needed to know what the name of the god that ruled over the land they were now living in and what this god expected of the people in worship and protection. No one ever taught them that there was only one God. God wanted Israel to reflect this to the world, so the world could see that they only needed to know him. But the world did not know any better. To worship one or many really did not matter. They had never experienced the power of the one true God, only the everyday idols of the false gods of their ancestors.
So why did they have so many gods? Because, they were made to believe it took many gods, not just one. How could one God be enough, to provide for them everything they would need.
This Royal Life starts with one God. An all-powerful, all knowing, omnipresent God. It is because he is all these things and is aware of everything affecting not only me, but the world.
And if any of these other gods were real. Why would they be willing to let you worship another god? I would think exalting other another god would acknowledge to them that they are not all powerful. They have limited power and the other one may have more power than them. Sounds like a war waiting to happen! So, if this is true, then why serve these make-believe gods, who is limited to do only one thing? Why wouldn’t anyone want to know the one true Supreme God, who can do all things.
The word of God states, is there anything too great for the Lord to do? So, to live and have a Royal Life, means to do away with all your family traditions and the gods that they served and seek to know the one true God. He is the only one who died to give you eternal life. The one who says, I will never leave you or forsake you, ever. I will go with you all the way, even to the end of the ages.
So… whom are you seeking for answers, in how to obtain and have this type of Royal Life?
Psalms 24:4 I have asked the LORD for one thing; one thing only do I want: to live in the LORD ‘s house all my life, to marvel there at his goodness, and to ask for his guidance. (GNB)
