  • God is not Bound by Reality
    Thursday, April 29, 2021
    People often say, "You have to be a realist. It's fine to have faith and dreams but ultimately you have to be a realist." I've got news for you...You don't have to be a realist. In fact, you shouldn't be a realist. We're supposed to be like God...God isn't a realist. God doesn't just accept things as they are, nor does he limit Himself by the reality of the world. He made the world when there was no world. If He were a realist, He would've just looked at the situation and accepted it. He would have said, "Well there's no light and we just have to accept that." He never did because God isn't a realist. He said, "Let there be light!" And there was light. In the same way, if you call yourself a child of God, then you also cannot be a realist, nor be bound by what is real. You're not called to accept the world; you're called to change the world. So whenever you're faced by a situation of darkness, don't accept it. Say, "Let there be light!" And there will be light. For God is your father, and your Father is no realist!
    From Message #440 - The Sunrise Commandment
    Today's Mission
    Don't be a realist! Don't be bound by the reality of your circumstances or problems. But, in God, live in faith, by His better and overcoming reality.
    Scripture: Matthew 5:14
