Do we sometimes forget that God is King and all things seen and unseen is within His Kingdom?
I believe we sometimes forget that above all things (by name) that God is, He is first a King. It would stand to reason that as the Creater of all things seen and unseen that everything is within His Kingdom. Do we fail to see the deepness of His Kingdom?
Yes for a variety of reasons and have wrote several hubs (in my Experiencing God hubs). In a nutshell they are:
Too many distractions-in my case financial stress, work issues, Internet (playing mindless games)
Idolatry-movies, music, money, peer pressure
Trying hard to make the family happy
Lack of faith-not trusting God
Trying to do things on our own without consulting God
Such a sincere answer from Lois Ryan! I commend her. Again, we are all weak, and what with all our insecurities, fears, not enough faith etc, we slip off the Path quite easily. Let us pray for one another.
Lois- Sometimes it is hard to remain focused on God when things in life become a difficult. But it's in times like that when focus on God is the most important. Many thanks for your answer.
Yes, at times, we human beings think that what we don't disclose, or that which we hide we are not accountable for. We do tend to forget that He knows everything. good question.
Yes, I think that happens so much anymore that we more or less ignore that fact.We should always remember that He is God. I know in this day that is not always a popular belief but I would rather displease the world than God . He is the one Who we are going to have to answer to, not man , it we could just get it through to them ,I am afraid when they do believe it will be too late for them.
clar kish@yahoo.- I agree. As christians all we can do is inform those who don't know. At the same time it is the respossibility of each individual to pick up the word of God and study for ourselves. We can not force belief on anyone. Many blessing.
Short and to the point - absolutely! Even though we know the truth behind your question, so often we lose focus on the Truth (a ploy of the devil) and begin to focus on the material - what we can see, to our own harm.
Perhaps we should be asking if we should limit God by describing God in an earthly metaphor. God is so much bigger than a "king."
