Secular Failure, Spiritual Victory

Secular Failure, Spiritual Victory | KingdomNomics.comMemorize and Meditate

What is more, I consider everything a loss because of the surpassing worth of knowing Christ Jesus my Lord, for whose sake I have lost all things. I consider them garbage, that I may gain Christ and be found in him, not having a righteousness of my own that comes from the law, but that which is through faith in Christ—the righteousness that comes from God on the basis of faith.” (Philippians 3:8–9, NIV)

Soak your Heart

Philippians 3.8We need to soak our hearts in this passage often. It contains some hard lessons, from both a secular and fleshly standpoint.

The standards of the world system and the kingdom of God are diametrically opposed. Paul makes it clear that knowing Christ far surpasses any earthly, perishable goal the world has to offer. Paul lost everything to know Christ; he considered anything that would rob him of experiencing Christ as rubbish. He wanted his entire life sourced in Christ and hidden in Christ. He wanted his righteousness to come from Christ alone and not from any works sourced in his flesh.

Focus on Christ, Not on the Problem

Focus on Christ, Not the Problem | KingdomNomics.comMemorize and Meditate

Do not gloat over me, my enemy! Though I have fallen, I will rise. Though I sit in darkness, the Lord will be my light.” (Micah 7:8, NIV)

Soak your Heart

We must train our minds to focus on the Lord when we are dealing with problems. If we focus on our problems, we will sink in the ocean of trouble, just as Peter did when he took his eyes off the Lord.

The Lord wants to purge us of self-trust so we can learn to trust in him. The mountain of self must be moved out of the way. Otherwise, we short-circuit his power from flowing through us.

God Delivers the Righteous

God Delivers the Righteous | KingdomNomics.comMemorize and Meditate

So you see, the Lord knows how to rescue godly people from their trials, even while keeping the wicked under punishment until the day of final judgment.” (2 Peter 2:9, NLT)

Soak your Heart

This interesting passage comes after Peter’s account of how the Lord delivered Noah and Lot from what would appear to be impossible circumstances. Both lived in “evil times,” with their respective peer groups living lives totally inconsistent with the plan of God for mankind.

However, God delivered each of them, with their families, in his way and timing. Noah had a close walk with the Lord and he obeyed the Lord’s instructions regarding building the ark. Then, in God’s timing, Noah moved his family and the animals into the ark. God shut the door, releasing the waters from the deep that flooded the earth.

Riches don’t last forever, and the crown might not be passed to the next generation.” (Proverbs 27:24, NLT)

These trials will show that your faith is genuine. It is being tested as fire tests and purifies gold—though your faith is far more precious than mere gold. So when your faith remains strong through many trials, it will bring you much praise and glory and honor on the day when Jesus Christ is revealed to the whole world.” (1 Peter 1:7, NLT)

God’s Favor is Life!

God’s Favor is Life! | KingdomNomics.comMemorize and Meditate

For whoever finds me finds life, and obtains favor from the Lord.” (Proverbs 8:35, NKJV)

Wisdom is what you and I want to find. If we find the right kind of wisdom we find life and favor from God.

  • We know the wisdom of the world is foolishness to God.
  • We know the preaching of the cross is foolishness to those who are perishing.
  • We know the wisdom of this world and the rulers of this world are coming to nothing.

So we have a decision to make.
