DEVOTION DATED 10 AUGUST 2012
But what things were gain to me, these I have counted loss for Christ
– Philippians 3:7
In this world that we live in, there are many, many, many things fighting for our attention, fighting to take the place of Christ in our lives. As the One who gave us ‘Freewill’ and would honor the decisions we’ve made, God has left us with the choice between Him or everything else.
There is no status quo, nor middle-of-the-road, standing in-between, or lukewarmness. Eventually, we have to make a stand between God and everything else the world has to offer.
“When I have God, I may lose much,
but when I have God, I have everything already.”
The gains of the world pales in comparison to You O my God, my Lord, my Father.
Writer’s note: God never promised that life will be a bed of roses, but He promised that after every rainstorm comes a beautiful rainbow or two. I will be releasing a devotional entry every Monday. It’s important to start the week right, hence the publishing of devotionals every Monday. You could read these pocket-size devotionals in one short sitting, in a bus, on the train, in-between breaks, so on. I hope my words will bring comfort and strength to you when you need them. Do feel free to check out this page for more updates or subscribe to my blog. Invite your friends along if you deem this to be worth a second look. God bless!
