Child Of His Kingdom


“His father said to him, ‘Look, dear son, you have always stayed by me, and everything I have is yours. We had to celebrate this happy day. For your brother was dead and has come back to life! He was lost, but now he is found!’”
Luke 15:31-32 (NLT)

The son who stayed by his side was angry as the lost son came back and the father gave him the best robe to wear and killed a fattened calf upon his return. The father didn't even kill a goat of for him to celebrate with his friend. The older brother thought he was showing favouritism towards the younger son.

Little did the older brother realise that whatever the father had was his, until the father mentioned it to him.

Today, God wants to tell his princes and princesses of His Kingdom, “Sons and daughters of the Most High, whatever I have in my kingdom are yours.”

When you envy someone for receiving more blessings than you and you feel angry with God because you have been waiting so long for him to bless you, question yourself, “Did you firstly ask before you wait, or have you simply been waiting for something to happen without asking God?”

Seek the Kingdom of God above all else, and he will give you everything you need.
Luke 12:31 (NLT)


Do not love this world nor the things it offers you, for when you love the world, you do not have the love of the Father in you.
1 John 2:15 (NLT)

If you have been asking, good for you. Now ask yourself if you have been asking things that He has. I cannot give you your phone charger if I don't have it myself. Similarly, Jesus does not belong to this world, so if you are asking Him for worldly blessings, how can he give it to you when He doesn't even belong to the world?

Jesus says that He will give us everything we need when we seek His kingdom first. He knows best what we need, so don't be angry when you didn't ask receive what you have asked for.

“Keep on asking, and you will receive what you ask for. Keep on seeking, and you will find. Keep on knocking, and the door will be opened to you.
Matthew 7:7 (NLT)

We may be tired of having to constantly ask for things from our parents when we know they will never give it to us. However, let this never be your attitude towards God. Don't stop asking and give up; keep on asking, seeking and knocking, for
He sees the desperation and your faith.

Take heart! For you are children of His Kingdom!

For he chose us in him before the creation of the world to be holy and blameless in his sight. In love he predestined us for adoption to sonship through Jesus Christ, in accordance with his pleasure and will— to the praise of his glorious grace, which he has freely given us in the One he loves.
Ephesians 1:4-6 (NIV)

  1. Hello,
    My pastor has said many times,"if God does not give us anymore than salvation, is that not enough?" But God has given us so much more. Instead of complaining about what we do not have, we should be grateful for what we do have and give Him thanks. Yes, keep seeking, knocking and asking. He is not going to give us something out of His will, but He will provide for all our needs.
    Blessings,
    Ken
