Be!

Then God blessed them and said, “Be fruitful and multiply.”(Gen 1:28)

Be means   to breathe, exist, live, subsist, abide, continue, endure, hold on, hold up, keep (on), kick, last, lead, persist, rule, run on, survive; move; flourish, prosper, thrive.

In the classic Shakespearean play Hamlet, the character posed the question, “to be or not to be?” The character was considering if he should continue to endure in spite of the trials and tribulation that life throws or should he throw in the towel and give up on life. Beloved now is the time to be persistent regardless of challenges and set backs.

God has commanded us to “Be!”, so let us be wise, be fruitful, be strong, and be faithful.  Not allowing anyone to belittle, beguile, or beset us.

  1. Amen, good word. And I would add to not allow ourselves to belittle, beguile and beset our own identity in Christ. So much of warfare is in our thoughts and the way we perceive ourselves. I’m slowly learning to see myself the way He sees me and actually believe what He says about me. 🙂

  2. Thank you for commenting Justin,so true that when we know who we are in Christ we can be all that He has created us to be.May you Become all that you are created to be!
