I am not moved by what I see!

2 Corinthians 4:8

King James Version (KJV)

We are troubled on every side, yet not distressed; we are perplexed, but not in despair;

Paul is describing events that are currently taking place. There are problems all around him. People were wanting to kill Paul all the time. Paul’s life seemed to be in danger often. Yet, he was not moved by what he saw or what he experienced.

This is not always true of the Christian. You could get a hang nail and start crying to God about the pain or suffering. Let me remind you that you serve a faithful trustworthy God. He will always answer your prayers and He is always available. God will not leave you nor forsake you. To say your prayers have gone unanswered would mean that God has forsaken you. He sees what is going on but He is waiting on your response. See God is bound by His Word and He can not violate His Word. He is always available and He wants to give instruction for your stress and perplexity. He is waiting for you to sit still for a moment and to listen to His instructions.

Many times I find that when a Christian is in stress or perplexed, it is usually because they are moved by what they see and hear. I am talking about the negative things. Negative things happen. Like your car breaks down. You pop a tire on the way to work in the middle of rush hour traffic. Your dog rips up your couch. Your children drop grape juice on your carpet… ETC. You have to choose to not be moved by what you see or hear.

Allowing yourself to be moved by what you see or hear allows the enemy to keep playing games with you and your emotions. Choose not to be moved by anything other than the power of God. More people are moved by the negative things rather than the positive things. If you are moved by the negative things you could end up being like Job… Looking at things that are not even happening! If your moved by the negative things then you will be caught up in the problem without an answer. Jesus is the answer and He has an answer to your problem. The Bible says Matthew 6:33 But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you. If you seek first the Kingdom of God then you will have wisdom to deal with the issue. You won’t give into the negative things you see and hear. Why? Because you will be caught up with seeking first the Kingdom of God.

Everything you need and desire is found in the Kingdom of God. The answer to your current problem is found in the Kingdom of God. Do you want to know how to tap into the Kingdom of God? Start praising the Father and get into worship. Don’t wait till Sunday morning. Do it now!
