Dear believer, it may be hard for you to comprehend this truth but your life in no longer yours. You totally belong to the Lord Jesus Christ. What this means is that you can no longer live on your own terms but on HIS terms. You can no longer live as you like because you are now in the kingdom of the Lord Jesus Christ. You have to pursue his agenda and blue print for your life and not yours.
He doesn’t run His kingdom by our rules but by His own purpose. The Lord is not primarily interested in your happiness, comfort, success or prosperity. His primary concern and interest is His Kingdom. Many preachers are lie to you when they say you should pursue happiness. We are called to pursue his will and happiness, joy, peace are a by-product of living a life that is pleasing to the Lord.
As hard as this may sound, if you pursue His Kingdom, putting Him first, He promised that all other things will be added to you. It is our duty therefore to serve and follow Him faithfully and it is His prerogative and responsibility to add whatsoever things He dims fit into our lives.
