Has it occurred to us that we are all inadvertently movie stars – taking part in a movie production that no existing blockbuster can ever outshine? Yes, we are all co-stars in God’s Movie – The Movie of Life.
In Revelations 4:11, scripture says thus: “Thou art worthy, O Lord, to receive glory and honour and power: for thou hast created all things, and for thy pleasure they are and were created.”
In view of the above scripture, God is the Executive Producer of our lives and the movie we star in (The Movie of Life). He is the Grand Director of the part/roles we play in the movie.
He is not only the Executive Producer and Director (calling the shot and guiding us to be the best we can be in the movie of life), but the Script writer (who Wills us to do what He pleases), the Gaffer (who ensures that everything is in place and that we turn out good in our part of the movie), and also the Camera man (who watches and captures our every move in His Omnipresence and Omniscience).
Now let us have a momentary pause, and think.
Since God calls the shot, do we TRUST Him enough?
Since God is the one who can truly guide us through life, do we YIELD enough?
Since He decides what life’s portions to mete out to us in accordance with His purpose, do we contentedly ACCEPT enough?
Since God knows and shows what is best for us, do we COOPERATE enough?
Since God watches our every move, do we tread in AWE enough?
Since God captures our every step with nothing hidden to Him, do we FEAR Him enough?
One of the biggest frustrations of any movie Producer and Director is to have un-cooperative, hard-headed, negative, and unteachable cast/crew. Conversely, a cooperative, teachable, positive, humble and yielding crew member is the delight of movie bosses I would bet.
Will you decide today, to purge yourself from the former; remaining fit and suitable for the Master’s use?
Don’t let another take your place in God’s Movie, which all mankind will inevitably star in – not only in this present age but till eternity. “Behold, I am coming quickly! Hold fast what you have, that no one may take your crown.” – Revelations 3:11
