Compartments

Okay,I’ll come for church services and prayer meetings
I’ll worship God and read my bible
But you don’t expect me to ask God to help me finish my assignments do you??
I mean the lecturer is literally on my nerves..
Oh I like that girl and I’ll propose soon
God doesn’t need to get involved….
As for my spiritual life ,there’s no problem at all
I am in constant touch with God, 24/7 sharp ….

Christians of today compartmentalize our lives
Claiming to have emotional,physical,psychological and all the ‘cals’ you could think of
The parts of our lives outside church services and the personal hurried times spent with God are out of His reach
We prefer to do things our own way
Most of us recite “…my life is hid with Christ in God” without actually understanding the verse
If your life is hid in God then all that pertains to you is in Him
There’s no  ‘ I can take care of this myself ‘ issues
In fact you have no right to take care of anything by yourself
I’m not promoting laziness but trust
When it comes to man and God,there’s your responsibility and God’s sovereignty
God would take care of all that concerns you,but you also have a responsibility
But that responsibility isn’t about doing it on your own and trusting in your own abilities
Yeah your fallen nature taught you to fend for yourself but you belong to a new order now
An order in which all you need do is trust and obey
Not work out your own way
God is very interested in making you excel at all you do
Don’t drag His name in the mud by being average and mediocre
Just because you chose to be your own boss instead of submitting to your only boss

Compartments arise in our lives out of an attempt to be real
To some people, there’s a reality in relationships, academics,finances beside God
To them,God is just for the ‘spiritual ‘: that is never true
God didn’t compartmentalize our lives for us
In an attempt to escape Him overseeing all we do ,we tend to compartmentalize
Reality is God and His word and there’s nothing else “realer” than that
Feelings don’t last ,they can’t be real over God
Real is permanent and doesn’t change
Real remains constant irrespective of the change around
God’s word has never changed all these years
His love for you hasn’t grown wilder or thinner because there’s so much sin in the world
His promises are still yea and amen
There’s no better person a creation will find reality in,aside its creator

Our mistake in trying to find reality aside God  is a falsehood
There’s no reality aside Jesus,He has never failed and never would
Don’t allow the world limit your thinking about possibilities in Christ
Dream big and run far on the wings of Christ
Allow Him define your reality to you
A reality of a life that conquers and overcomes
A reality of being a lion who doesn’t chew grass in famine
The reality of influencing the whole world no matter how many baby steps you take
Choose the reality that proclaims you healthy and sound irrespective of what the doctor’s report says
A reality that allows you to completely submit your life without fear of losing control
Choose God cuz He’s the real deal:)👌
