Attract The Kingdom

Did you know that you attract what is in you? Just as an airport with all its high-tech lights and radar attract airplanes, so a Kingdom minded person attracts the things of the Kingdom.

Consider the military officer, Cornelius. Scripture (in Acts 10) tells us that he was a Roman Captain of a regiment, yet he was a devoted follower of the God of Israel. He prayed constantly and he was a very generous man, continuing to remember the poor and taking care of the Jewish people’s needs. 

Cornelius had done so much to seek the Father and bless the Jewish people, that God couldn’t bare for this faithful man to be out of the loop in regard to all that had happen through Jesus’ death and resurrection. Even though the religious law forbid Gentiles and Jews to mingle, God sent an angelic visitation to Cornelius and a ground-breaking vision to Peter—all in an effort to reach this one man with the good news of salvation through Jesus Christ. Why was this man so special in God’s eyes?

Cornelius was Kingdom minded, therefore he attracted what was already in Him. Bill Johnson says it like this: “The Kingdom is within you, therefore your inward reality will become your external reality.” Cornelius’ priorities were all about what the Lord was doing, so the Lord made sure Cornelius was treated as a VIP. His devotion resulted in him being one of the first Gentiles to hear and experience the promised “Kingdom of God”. 

“While Peter was still speaking these words, the Holy Spirit fell upon all those who heard the word. And those of the circumcision who believed were astonished, as many as came with Peter, because the gift of the Holy Spirit had been poured out on the Gentiles also. For they heard them speak with tongues and magnify God.” (Acts 10:44-46)

Let me encourage you today! Your devotion, prayers, and giving won’t be overlooked, and God will always give His Kingdom minded people the VIP treatment. You are on the inside track with God and He is looking for a way to bless you today. Just as a light in the darkness attracts attention, so your godly heart attracts His Kingdom…and all that comes with it. 

Let’s pray: Lord Jesus, I set my mind on the Kingdom today! Knowing that Your Kingdom is eternal and good. I am excited that I will reap all and more that I have sown into what You are doing. Bless me Father. Bless me with encounters with You, divine connections, and special insights. I love You! In Jesus’ name, amen.
