You must have heard the statement, “they are in their own little world”. The fact is every one on earth is in their own little world. They have a single core priority that everything else revolves around. For some it a business, for some it’s a church, for some it’s a ministry, for some it’s a spouse, for some it’s sports, or partying. For some it’s the kids. For many it’s the next high, or constant depression. For millions it’s a sickness, disease, or handicap. For most of the world’s population it’s just plain survival. Each of these little world’s includes a small circle of people, made up of family, friends, acquaintances, and enemies, each also having their own circles of people in their own little world.
The task of My Spirit is to find those who are willing to exchange their core priority for Mine. I have one core priority, My Father’s kingdom. It is so easy to become confused during the building process and loose focus, thinking that your project is the center of the kingdom. The truth is, I AM drawing from over 6,000,000,000 people, including atheists, muslims, Hindus, criminals, good people, addicts, rich and poor and even religious people! I seeking out those that are willing to be born again, and join Me in “seeking first My kingdom, and My righteousness; and when they forget their own little world, all the things they need in their little world will be given to them!” Matthew 6:33.
Those I draw together will make My kingdom the center of their world, at this point you will begin to see My body begin to form, first locally, then nationally and finally world wide. When the last nation sees it, I will return for it! Matthew 24:14 Nothing will break them apart, because of the adhesiveness of unconditional love they possess. 1 John 4:16. Physically they will cover the earth, but they will all be on the same page, the kingdom page. However, in this world wide process, if they become religious, they will quickly fall back into their own little world, where self becomes the core priority. They then disqualify themselves and will eventually break away from the body.
Ask yourself: What is your world centered around? Is it a person? Is it your ministry? Is it your church? Is it your problems? Is it money or the lack of it? Is it work? Stop and think for a moment: What will take up most of your time today? Your house? Your family? What will you think about most today? What will you talk about most today? Now tonight before falling asleep, read this again, and compare these questions to the last 12 hours, then you will discover which world you are in!
If loving and seeking to save all people, was not the center or thinking, talk and action, then today you were back in your own little world!
