Annointed Beauty Daily Devotions Ministry


It was music day at church this week-end and all of the best musicians in the community came out. Service was filled with singing and instrumentals. The sermon was shrunk to a 10 minute presentation to accommodate the day. All was well EXCEPT, for the past couple of years a superstar has arisen.

The superstar prances in and out of the church while gliding in her very fashionable gowns. She barely acknowledges your presence and looks down on those who are not of the same “status”. I stop and wonder, when did “status” become a requirement in the church? How did church superstars arise?

I find nothing wrong with a prosperous Christian. As a matter of fact, our Father is ruler of all things. Therefore, we have access to all things. However, when we are blessed it is not to flaunt it to those around us. We have been blessed to bless others. In God’s church their is no class system “for all have sinned and come short of the glory of God.”. In God’s church the only star of the show is GOD! He is the one receiving the glory. He is the one who bestows the talent. He is the creator of all things. He is the one who died on Calvary. He is the one who rose again on the third day. He is the one we are patiently waiting to see burst through the clouds in all of His Glory.

We must be careful not to get too caught up in ourselves that we forget WHO deserves the glory. There’s a song that says “Make me invisible so that they’ll only see you that’s inside of me.” This is the character that we ought to have. We must learn to let Jesus be seen through us and in everything we do.

As humans we yearn for recognition and that is not exempt in the church. We all want to be praised for our work. While there is nothing wrong with recognition, we musn’t let ourselves take the place of God. Remember without Him we’d be nothing.

Let us look within ourselves and ensure that we are not standing in the Lord’s way. God is working great things in you so let Him work but remember to move out His way and let Him be glorified for His work.

Today’s thought:

“The first shall be last and the last shall be first. God is no respecter of persons. He is concerned about all of His children and uses them all in His service.”
