His Kingdom is Near

“Whatever city you enter and they receive you, eat what is set before you; and heal those in it who are sick, and say to them, ‘The kingdom of God has come near to you.’” Luke‬ ‭10:8-9‬ ‭‬‬

I have often been distracted by hospitality. Do I need to reciprocate? I’m picky. What if so overstay my welcome? What if….?

God sent His followers out with nothing. He said “if they receive you great.” “If not, it’s still OK your purpose is to bring the Kingdom.” Either way He tells them the Kingdom of God has come near. What if I could remember that it’s not about me? It’s about Him. The purpose that He sent me for is to bring His Kingdom. It is to bring His healing.

Prayer – Lord I love you. Thank You for Your grace in my shortcomings and Your forgiveness for my sin. Lord, I want to go where You sent me. I don’t want to be distracted by everything around me. I don’t want to be distracted by other say and do or think, but be focused on Your Kingdom and furthering it here on earth.

Lord thank you for helping Casey to close on our house I thank You for the progress for Shane and his complete healing that was finished at the cross and appropriate it to Him as a child of God by the finished work of Christ. I thank you for your divine connections and that you are working even when we can’t see it. Thank you for allowing me to meet April and her husband and children. And I thank you for the women’s Bible group you connected me with last night. Lord I pray you guide my steps to church and continue connecting me and directing me where you would have me. In Christ’s name, Amen.

About Jackie S

I have been through a lot in life, but through Christ I am more than an overcomer. I am not perfect, I will never claim to be. Praise God I am forgiven though. I am rather opinionated. I see most things in black and white and believe honesty is always the best policy. This combination sometimes comes off harsh. The truth is I love people. I truly love helping others and try to believe the best about others. It is easy to find faults, but focusing on strengths is more my style, but I also shoot it straight. If it sounds harsh, know my heart is for something better for you.
