At the recent Promise Keepers conference, there was a talk about being ALL IN. It was explained that we are ‘ALL IN’ in something. We are either ALL IN in the kingdom of GOD or we are ALL IN in the kingdom of ME.
In the kingdom of ME – I pretty much do what I want, when I want, how I want, where I want. Essentially, I am my own god.
In the Kingdom of God, I follow HIS direction and do HIS will for my life.
At times, it is difficult to choose which kingdom we want to be ALL IN. It becomes less difficult when we intentionally choose to be ALL IN in the Kingdom of God - - trust Him, fix our eyes on Him and give Him first place in our lives, no matter what the situation is.
…… then choose for yourselves this day whom you will serve, …… But as for me and my household, we will serve the Lord.” Joshua 24:15 NIV
