Good mornin to you, this is Lee Poskey.
As I digest the messages that I see here on social media and television, I see a surging problem that’s so obvious that it begs to be addressed.
No, I’m not talking about the crooked media and politicians who manufacture strife and division among us, (that’s an external parasite). The rampant problem that I’m about to address is internal, (so please earnestly consider to what I’m about to share with you).
Look at the messages all around you, and what do you see? You see fulfillment being presented in achieving something in the realm of humanity. Fulfillment in human pride. “Look at me, I have the life that you should have. Be like me, admire me, I’m somebody.” “Buy this product and be fulfilled.” “Pay attention to me, I’ve accomplished _, or, I’m funny, clever, witty, or attractive.” “Achieve this and you’ll have purpose & inner fulfillment.”
And guess what? No one on that hamster-wheel ever quite catches the prize of fulfillment. They die spiritually dead, hoping that God will let them into heaven (because they think themselves to be basically good), and within a generation or two, they’re forgotten as time marches on.
You want an example? Then just look at the folk from 80 years ago. They finally achieved xy & z, they finally purchased xy & z… And do you care today? (No).
So the lesson to be learned here is to quit putting any stock in ourselves, in what we’ve done, in what we possess, (our earthy identity in any way)…and put all of our identity in that which is eternal, incorruptible.
To have all of our identity SOLELY in the risen Lord Jesus Christ.
That’s the ONLY WAY that anyone will ever know genuine fulfillment & peace from within.
And unless you cross over from spiritual death to spiritual life in the risen Lord Jesus Christ, you’re merely spinning your wheels to hell. Duped by the architect of evil, the deceiver of the masses, Satan.
So do what’s right. Run to the LORD right now, receive Him, believe on Him, and know His peace.
“Thou wilt keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on thee: because he trusteth in thee.”
“These things I have spoken unto you, that in me ye might have peace. In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world.”
“Now the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, that ye may abound in hope, through the power of the Holy Ghost.”
“Be careful for nothing; but in every thing by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God.”
1 Peter 5:7
“Casting all your care upon him; for he careth for you.”
